This page is part of the official policies of Sonic Fanon Wiki.
All users must adhere to this policy. If you believe that a change is needed, please discuss it on the policy's talk page, or in the Wiki Improvement Forum.

Every so often, Sonic Fanon Wiki will host an election to give user the opportunity to run for a new ranking on the wiki. In order to be allowed to run in said elections, however, users must fit into a variety of qualifications which show that the user is right for the position.

  • Administrators
    • Must have at least 1000 constructive edits, meaning no spam or vandalism.
    • Must have been active on the wiki for at least 6-8 weeks. For users who make new accounts, time spent on the previous account counts to time on the wiki.
    • If the user has been banned for vandalism, spam, or trolling, they must wait four weeks after the ban is lifted before they are viable for adminship. This time does not count to time spent active on the wiki. The ban does not count if it was unjustified; such distinction is up to the discretion of the current admins.
    • Nominee must know and adhere to the policies of the wiki, and must actively enforce these rules as an admin.
    • The user must be capable of being respectful and civilized to all Users, and must do so.
    • Any admin who is legitimately stripped of his/her rank two or more times will not be allowed to run for administration again.
  • Bureaucracy
    • Must have at least 7000 constructive edits, meaning no spam or vandalism.
    • Must have been active on the wiki for at least 3 months. Time spent on previous accounts does not count.
    • User must have at least 6 weeks of adminship experience.
    • If the user has been justly banned twice, they are immediately exhempt from any bureaucracy nomination.
    • Rules 4 and 5 for Administration Qualification also must be adhered to for Bureaucracy Qualifications.
  • Chat Moderators
    • Must have at least 200 constructive edits, meaning no spam or vandalism.
    • Must have been active at least 6 weeks.
    • Must not have been previously kickbanned from chat (for a time of 12 hours or more) more than twice.
    • Must understand, follow, and enforce all SFW policies while on chat.
    • Must not be biased or make disparaging or demeaning insults towards other Users on chat.
    • The user must be capable of being respectful and civilized to all Users, and must do so.
  • Rollbacks
    • Must have at least 500 constructive edits, meaning no spam or vandalism.
    • Must have been active at least 3 months.

To recap: any users who do not meet the above qualifications will not be allowed to run in the corresponding election(s).

Single User Elections

When primary elections are not being held, a user may create a forum post here to recommend another user to go through an election process for promotion.

Requirements

  • The user in question must show consent.
  • The user in question must be active.
  • The user in question must fit all of the requirements for the position in question.
  • On the forum post, at least three users (not counting the one who made the forum/blog) must agree with the possibility of promotion and must include their reasons as to why they agree.
  • For the position of chat moderator, at least two current moderators must approve. For the position of admin, at least two current admins must approve. For the position of bureaucrat, the user in question must already be an admin and be approved by at least three current admins.
  • A specific user can only be allowed to be recommended once every two months. During that time, the user cannot be nominated during an official election.
  • All of the above requirements must be fulfilled within a week of the forum post. If those requirements are not fulfilled in time, then the recommendation is disproved and the blog must be deleted.
  • Assuming that all requirements are fulfilled in time, then a voting forum post shall be created with a voting period of two weeks. If the user gains majority votes (by users with at least 2 months of experience and at least 50 edits) then they shall be promoted.

Rollback

This position does not require election, considering that it only provides users with the ability to undo vandalism with more ease.

Requirements:

  • The user in question must give consent.
  • Two administrators must give approval.
  • Two non-administrators must give approval.

Draws

In the case of a draw during the voting process, an additional three days will be given for voting. If a draw is once again reached, then the vote is considered a failure. However, the user will be allowed to try again in one month instead of two in this case.
