Civilization Wiki


Requests for adminship (RfA) is the process by which Civilization Wiki community decides who should be administrators (or "sysops"). Administrators have access to a few technical features that help with maintenance. A user may submit his own request for adminship (a self-nomination) or may be nominated by another user.

Old cases of adminship requests can be found from the /Archive.

Nominations by others[]


The wiki has been growing and I think it's time for the admin base to grow as well. User:Oldag07 has been a major part of the growth of this wiki for some two years already, and I'd like to nominate him for adminship. He makes quality edits and communicates well with people, so I think he would make a great addition to the team. —ZeroOne (talk) 06:22, February 27, 2018 (UTC)


I support Oldag07's nomination! Exitwound 45 (talk) 18:15, February 27, 2018 (UTC)

I support it as well. He'll make a fine addition to the administrative staff. -Mythril Wyrm (talk)

Thanks for the kind words! Oldag07 (talk) 22:37, February 27, 2018 (UTC)
Well, the support is unanimous within the most active admins around, so I see no reason to delay this vote any further. Congrats Oldag07, you've been promoted! :) —ZeroOne (talk) 21:52, March 1, 2018 (UTC)

Exitwound 45[]

User:Exitwound 45 has shown incredible dedication during his short history in the wiki. He has singlehandedly added probably hundreds of new articles already, all about the games that have been really badly neglected until now. This wiki really benefits of him, and I believe he'd benefit from adminship, as that would allow him to rename images too (and he has added lots of those as well!). —ZeroOne (talk) 22:18, December 1, 2014 (UTC)

He has done a lot of work. I looked through his contributions, and what he did to get to number 4 on Special:Leaderboard, and I think he'd do fine as an administrator. If he needs to be an administrator to rename image files, then give it to him. Dream Focus 01:26, December 2, 2014 (UTC)

I'll second the nomination. He's an exceptionally dedicated contributor, and I think he'd make a very good administrator as well. -Mythril Wyrm

I also support Exitwound's nomination. He has done nothing but great work and shown a lot of dedication. --Becer (talk) 20:21, December 2, 2014 (UTC)

Cool, looks like we have a consensus. I've promoted Exitwound 45. :) —ZeroOne (talk) 20:44, December 2, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you[]

Wow, what an honor. Thanks so very much, everyone. Exitwound 45 (talk) 00:53, December 3, 2014 (UTC)

Mythril Wyrm[]

I reckon we need more admins, and User:Mythril Wyrm would be my current top candidate. He has only been a member for some half a year, yet he has already amassed a couple of thousand edits under his belt. I find he's quality oriented and easy to get along with. —ZeroOne (talk) 22:08, July 12, 2014 (UTC)

Nominee's acceptance[]

Mythril Wyrm posted this to his talk page when I left him a note that I had nominated him:

Well, thanks! I'll be happy to serve in whatever capacity I can. :) -Mythril Wyrm (talk) 22:19, July 12, 2014 (UTC)

Comments from other users[]

I agree with ZeroOne. User:Mythril Wyrm left a good impression after his actions and seems quite dedicated to contribute at the moment. --Becer (talk) 02:37, July 13, 2014 (UTC)

OK, it's been about a week and nobody opposes. I have promoted Mythril Wyrm into an admin. :) —ZeroOne (talk) 21:30, July 18, 2014 (UTC)

Requests by users themselves[]

User:Copyza123  to be admin[]

Comments from other users[]

You just started editing, then lost your temper and cussed someone out. So I don't think you are going to be an administrator right now. Dream Focus 11:07, December 20, 2014 (UTC)

User:Bobjiggers to be admin[]

I am helping out a new wiki. So far, it's just me copying and pasting things, and trying to form some kind of organization there. As an admin, I would like to see how this wiki is set up. I won't change anything, and won't delete anything. Again, I just want to see how this wiki is set up on the side of the administrator. Thanks for considering this. Bob J.

  • Bobjiggers. Welcome to our Wiki. We appreciate your enthusiasm editing our wiki and would love to show you around. I don't think this requires you to be given administrative privileges at this time. We would love to reconsider this once we get to know you and you build a solid reputation. Please ask any of us if you have any questions. We look forward to working with you! Oldag07 (talk) 17:51, 10 March 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for responding! I'm not sure if you understood what I meant by asking to be an admin. I was asking because I need to know how a wiki runs, on the technical side. Are there any tips to get a wiki up and running? I an trying to help this very new wiki,but I don't have a clear idea on how to set a wiki up. I've been trying to do the best I can, but I don't think just working on the Wiki by myself will make much of a difference. If you have a chance, would you mind giving me advice on this? I understand I won't become admin anytime soon, and I won't need the privilege if someone that knows what they're doing can help me out. Thank you in advance, Bob J. (talk) 20:12, 10 March 2021 (UTC)

I'll move the conversation to your talk page. Oldag07 (talk) 14:12, 14 March 2021 (UTC)
