The following page documents an official Test Wiki policy.
This page has been elaborated and approved by the community or a system administrator and compliance with it is mandatory for all users. Changes to it should reflect consensus. In the case of a conflict between the English version and a translation, the English version takes precedence.


This policy outlines the criteria and procedures for users seeking to gain bureaucrat rights on Test Wiki.

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for bureaucrat rights on Test Wiki, a user must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be a registered user as unregistered users cannot technically gain user rights.
  • Must have made at least 10 edits on Test Wiki.
  • Must have been an administrator for a minimum of 4 days.


A bureaucrat or Steward, as applicable, may make exceptions to this policy when one of the following applies:

  • If a user had previously had bureaucrat rights, and had the right removed due to inactivity, they may be granted the rights without meeting the above criteria again.
  • A steward may exempt a user they deem trustworthy from the above requirements.


Bureaucrat rights will not be granted to users who have previously misused the right, where that misuse resulted in the revocation of their bureaucrat rights. They also shall not be granted to a user who has been banned from receiving them. In either case, users must either

(a) apply to a Steward to have the permission re-added or their editing/user restriction removed, as applicable, or

(b) undergo a community vote on the community portal to effect the same.

Users are restricted to holding bureaucrat rights on only one account. Violations will result in the immediate removal of excess rights, with users given the opportunity to select one account to retain such privileges. Exceptions may be granted by stewards or other bureaucrats for bot accounts. Stewards may grant exceptions for other cases.
