  • For positions other than chat moderator, the nominator must have an e-mail confirmed account with no bans or blocks within 4 weeks of the nomination, have been actively editing/posting on the wiki for a minimum of 2 weeks and have a minimum of 25 edits.

  • Your vote should contain why you think the nominee is a good candidate and examples if possible.
  • Your vote must be in your own words and contain valid reasons. Liking or disliking the person is not a valid reason.
  • Your vote can not be composed solely of quotes from other votes or simply say "I support/agree with user/the above."
  • Your vote is to be signed with your signature using "~~~~" or your username hyper-linked to your profile page.

Other

  • Nominations are given a week to gain votes before it is reviewed.
  • Nominations with no majority after a week will be extended for 4 days, during which users will be contacted via their message wall to rewrite invalid votes. Should no clear majority be found the staff will decide the outcome considering the wiki's best interests.
  • If a user's rights are removed via nomination, they cannot be re-nominated for those rights for 4 months. This does not apply to users who step down without an active nomination for their removal.
  • 3 weeks after a newly appointed user has passed their nomination, they will have their performance reviewed and a decision based upon their suitability for the position will be made by all active administrators.
  • While the nomination itself counts as a vote in support of the proposal, there must be at least one additional vote in support of a nomination for it to pass.

Nominations for the Removal of User Rights

Since nominations for the removal of users may require extensive evidence and include several different points, they are often too large to be put on this page. Instead, nominations for the removal of a user's rights are to be made in either a blog or forum. Similar to the process of nominating users for rights, the decision will be based upon a majority vote by registered users.

If administrators and bureaucrats feel that a user is actively causing harm with their rights (such as a moderator banning several users for no reason, or a rollback reverting several users' edits for no reason), they may temporarily remove the user's rights until a vote on the nomination is decided, upon which time the rights will either be permanently removed, or given back if the nomination does not pass.

Since bureaucrat rights can only be removed by Wikia staff or the user themself, nominations for the removal of user rights of a bureaucrat will be forwarded to Wikia staff.
