Yes. Admins decide if it passes.--MegaTron1XD:p 03:01, July 5, 2010 (UTC)

New policy[edit]

I have an idea I think we need patrollers (Not quite rollbackers.) AlbumArt-Dixie.png TabuuandMasterCore 09:46, 28 June 2016 (EDT)

Well, we are all kind of patrollers, aren't we? The idea of "junior admins" has been shot down several times because it was decided that there wouldn't be enough of a difference between regular and "junior" admins. John John3637881 Signature.png PK SMAAAASH!! 11:09, 28 June 2016 (EDT)
Wikipedia has a similar policy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Autopatrolled AlbumArt-Dixie.png TabuuandMasterCore 11:42, 28 June 2016 (EDT)
I don't really think Wikipedia policies work here, in this case. We're not Wikipedia, after all. Even then, however, why do we even need them? You never explained that. PenroImage.pngPenro 11:50, 28 June 2016 (EDT)

Here's the deal:

  1. We have a system for proposing new policies. Use it.
  2. The "junior administrator" policy has been attempted 3 times, and each time has subsequently failed. The fact is that this wiki's userbase is simply not large enough to justify having a "lower administrator" position. It's something that our community clearly does not want, so I say we leave it alone. Serpent SKSig.png King 12:44, 28 June 2016 (EDT)
