Users may be nominated or nominate themselves for the role of wiki creator by placing a request on Meta:Requests for permissions. Whenever the nomination is accepted (if nominated by someone else, otherwise submitting the request is immediate acceptation), a request must stay open for at least three (3) days. During this period anyone from the Community may Support, Neutral or Oppose a candidate's request.
Unlike some other user groups, there is no minimal support percentage for the wiki creator role. A steward will close the request and make a decision based on the comments from the Community.
Removal of rights
Wiki creators who have not contributed to the community in any form for at least three months, may have their rights removed.
A wiki creator's rights may be removed by a steward shall a wiki creator repeatedly violate the Content Policy when creating wikis. The rights may also be removed by a system administrator if the wiki creator (potentially) causes damage (from a technical view) or creates unreasonable workload for System administrators. If you feel a wiki creator is misusing their privileges, please contact a steward.
Readdition of rights
Wiki creators who have had their rights removed by a steward or system administrator, regardless of reason, may request their rights back by following the Appointment procedure.
System administrators (see this page for a list of current system administrators) may be granted these privileges without community appointment and are also exempt from any activity requirements. However, the inactivity exemption ends immediately from the moment a user is no longer in the system administrator group.
