Celeste Wiki:Vote for sysops

From Celeste Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is the place where Celeste Wiki users choose and vote for the most qualified users to be given the strawberry of power. Additionally, this is the place for votes to remove sysop and bureaucrat status from a user.

  • All votes end 3 days after they are started. For example, if a vote were to start on January 15th, the vote will end on January 18th.
  • This time requirement may be waived by any bureaucrat for any non-bureaucrat vote.
  • Bureaucrat voting time cannot be waived, except by User:Celeste.

Rules for sysop and bureaucrat votes

  • You may nominate whomever you want, as long as they are registered and have basic knowledge of either MediaWiki or Celeste (the game).
  • Any registered user may vote.
  • Raising a user to bureaucrat requires the agreement of 51% of the current administrators.
  • You may self nominate for both administrator and bureaucrat, but do not abuse this.
  • VFS only works locally. It does not grant anyone global sysop or steward status.
  • A vote shall be considered successful if it has 51% or more of all votes.

The process

Rules for de-op votes

  • Any verified user may nominate an administrator to be de-opped.
  • Bureaucrat de-op votes will result in them being de-opped to administrator (sysop only) status. Another de-op should be implemented if a user wishes to rid a bureaucrat of their administrative rights completely.
  • The formal de-op process may be bypassed if an account with administrative rights has been compromised, or if an admin has clearly "gone rogue".
  • Self de-ops can be done on your own (for sysops who aren't bureaucrats), or by messaging Celeste or a Miraheze steward (for bureaucrats).
  • Celeste, founder of this wiki, is immune to being de-opped.
  • A de-op vote shall be considered successful if it has 60% or more of all votes.


Number of votes allowed per person

  • All verified users are allotted 1 (one) vote.
  • All administrators, bureaucrats, and other MediaWiki staff are allotted 2 (two) votes.
  • Celeste is allotted 2 (two) votes, excepting votes for bureaucrat where they have the express right to deny any applicant.
  • No user may cast any votes for themselves in the event they self nominate.


NB: Celeste may change these rules at any time for any reason to help the fight against wiki-terrorism. Feel free to discuss the rules at VFS's talk page, if you wish to reform them to make them more "fair".

  • For because pixel is nice. Lily (no link because lmao) 13:16, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
  • For per Celeste, really, as I mean the user doesn't have much activity on this wiki, but the fact Celeste and Lily have vouched for them speaks volumes, I think. Note to the closer for the purposes of vote counting, I currently hold local sysop and steward rights. Dmehus (talk) 23:28, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

Extended content

They seem fairly decent, as a Miraheze interwiki admin, so I'm nominating them for local admin. Actually, scratch that. I'm merely doing this because I suffer from severe bureaucraphilia. (Wait, did I just invent a word?) Celeste (talk) 02:25, 25 February 2021 (UTC)
