Wikiquote:Requests for adminship
Here you can make a request for adminship and other special user rights on English Wikiquote. See Wikiquote:Administrators for what this entails and for a list of current admins.
Current English Wikiquote policy is to grant administrator status to anyone who has been an active Wikiquote contributor for a while and is generally a known and trusted member of the community. Most users seem to agree that the more administrators there are the better.
Administrators should register a valid email address and allow other users to send them messages in preferences, or give an email address on their user page.
If you want to become an administrator, please use the box below, filling out all the required areas and replacing "USERNAME" with your user name. Any user can comment on your request -- they might express reservations (because, for example, they suspect you will abuse your new-found powers, or if you've joined very recently), but hopefully they will approve and say lovely things about you. If this is not your first RfA, put a 2 (or whatever number RfA it may be) after "USERNAME" in the box.
Once you have saved your RfA page, add it to the Nominations for adminship section. Adminship nominations must be posted for at least one week, to provide opportunity for comments and voting, before a bureaucrat will make the promotion if warranted.
For closed votes, see #Past discussions.

Votes of confidence
Restricted access depends on the continued support of the community. This may be tested by a vote of confidence, in which a simple majority (50%+1) must support the user's continued access for it to be retained. (What access a discussion concerns should be explicitly noted in the discussion's introduction.) Any user may propose a vote of confidence, but at least three established users must support the need for one before it can be called.
In the case of a called proposal, the user may not use the restricted access for any non-trivial action at any time until the vote is closed. A bureaucrat will eventually archive the discussion and, if so decided, request removal of restricted access by a steward.
Nominations for adminship
Note: Nominations have to be accepted by the user in question. If you nominate a user, please also leave a message on their talk page and inform them about their listing on this page, and ask them to reply here if they accept the nomination. You may nominate yourself (in which case you have automatically accepted the nomination).
~riley (talk · contributions)
I am going to be bold, recognizing this community only has 4 active administrators, and nominate myself for administrator permissions to help the community grow.
Some of you may only know me by the nonstop vandal attacks that occur on my talk page, others may have seen my category work, anti-vandalism efforts, archiving of our discussion pages or the improvements I have made locally to templates or noticeboards. I have about 4,500 edits here and my favourite project so far is the upgrade of the requested entries page.
Outside of Wikiquote, I am an administrator on Wikimedia Commons where I specialize in copyright licensing and also have an anti-vandalism background as a global administrator across most Wikimedia projects. I have a technical background and am good with templates, MediaWiki pages, and scripting - my work as a global interface admin also brings me here occasionally to work on improving your wiki interface.
If successful in this request, I would improve response time on Wikiquote:Vandalism in progress where there are many unanswered requests and help out at Wikiquote:Votes for deletion where there is also an admin backlog. As a regular user, I plan to continue verifying quotes added by new users and continue with my category work.
Thank you for your consideration,

Requests for importing right
The import function allows editors to upload specially formatted text into Wikiquote, or to transwiki such material after it is exported from another Wikimedia project. Only a Meta steward can add or drop any user's importing right. After requests are approved here, they will be reported to m:Steward requests/Permissions.

Requests for flag removal
This section is used for notification (and comment) only. To be effective, it should go to m:Steward requests/Permissions#Removal of access. Requests by the community will occur as #votes of confidence.
