Policy on becoming admin and other admin info

The first 2 admins get bureaucrat rights here. You need to meet these standards & rules after I get an experienced bureaucrat rollback:

  • You must never have been banned, unless the ban was unfair and you want me to look into it.
  • You must never have banned myself.
  • You must be a fan of A-ha, its members, and/or its related projects, and must know it to at least a proficient expertise level.
  • One bad real-life encounter can deny you admin rights. Read the section below.
  • You must follow the user rules.
  • You must be on Wikia for at least 4 months, and on this wiki for at least 2 (unless you're very experienced in Wikipedia or WikiFoundry, I'll accept 10+ months XP on there as well).
  • If you fail the standards and don't become admin, you may not apply for another year, but you won't get banned for failing. You will for re-applying after less than a year (once for 8 months, twice for 7 years, and if it happens a third time, you'll get pwned ♫'till the end of time♫)
  • You can also wait 2 months instead to qualify for chat moderator.
  • There can be a maximum of 4 admin, 1 bureaucrat, and 2 chat moderators, making 7 special users. This will be expanded after 600 active users are on here.
  • You need to read below.

Other-place encounters and behaviour

Okay, let's talk about these. These are the real-life & on-Net encounters. Good encounters may grant you a chance for admin rights, but bad encounters can get you banned. Not trying to attack you, but I don't want another bad encounter that results in losing this one wiki that I have ultimate rights to.

FYI: This also applies for other special users. Just trying to keep us safe from further emotional damage. This doesn't apply to non-special users, for they can talk it out.

The special users are trying to make this place work good.

We can't lose it. WE CAN'T, I TELL YOU!

Also, your behaviour on other wikis apply. Bans vary for that as well. It depends on the ban on there, and if you've been banned more than once, or on multiple wikis, that could put you in trouble.

Admin/Bureaucrat Rules

No abusing powers

No blocking innocent users, no excessive unconstructive rollbacking, no disparaging users or admin/bureaucrats.

  • Only offence: Permanent demotion & 4 month ban

No breaking User Rules

They still apply. Follow them.

  • Only offence: Permanent demotion, ban depends on rule and offence

Last Note

The admins, bureaucrats, Wikia staff, and myself are watching you. You have no warnings left.

So be warned, but still be free to edit!
