This documentation is imported from Template:Promotepage/doc

This template is for staff to easily create a standardised Promotion page. The page will be created linking to the user, and with all the questions and sections readily created.

This template MUST be substituted. This means that you MUST include "subst" at the start of the template code (as shown below). This means that the customised contents of the template will be placed into the page, instead of leaving the template code. This allows editors to edit the page and reply etc.

{{subst:promotepage|username|position+link|~~~~|Reason & Nominator}}

This is the username of the person nominated to be promoted; the signature of the staff member who accepted the nomination (and is creating the nomination page), and the reason for nomination (including the nominator, or whether it is self-nominated). If the

The result of the following code can be seen at Template:Promotepage/test:

{{subst:promotepage|Chip2007|an Inspector|~~~~|He was nominated by User:GTW-Chris for being a vital member of the community.}}

The questions on the template can be edited, but they are signed by the person who originally wrote them, and dated at the time the nomination page is created. Follow the existing questions to see how to get the date to transclude.


[[User:{{{1}}}]] has been nominated to become an Administrator. . ~~

{{{1}}}, please reply with whether you accept or decline this nomination, and why. If you accept, please answer the questions below.


Any user may ask a question here for the candidate to answer. Feel free to add extra questions based on their replies.

What do you think is the main role of an Administrator?

What do you think is the hardest thing for new editors to get the hang of (whether a technical skill, a policy or just the way we do things here); how would you spot they were having difficulty; and how would you help them? Maybe explain what was the hardest thing you've had to learn whilst being here?

Becoming staff isn't a reward for good edits, it's a job and a respoinsibility. How do you feel you could help us, and why should we promote you to become an Administrator?

Are there any specific tasks, jobs or vendettas you perform around the wiki that you are particularly proud of?

Could you give one example of what you think is one of the best pages on this wiki, and a brief explanation of why you chose that. It should probably be an informational article, but you could use a list or category or similar if you explain why.

Do you have any questions about the wiki, its staff or the role of a Moderator, or any final comments before we make our decision?


Any user may leave a comment here, which will be considered before the decision is made.


This section is for any user to formally list whether they are in favour of this promotion or not. Simply sign your name on a bullet point, add any comments into the comments section. This is NOT decided by a vote, but the results will be taken into consideration by the Managers. Remember, this is not whether you like the user, but whether they would be a good member of staff.
