There is a set of six [https://en.bitcoin.it/w/index.php?title=Special:ListUsers&group=sysop users with admin] rights:
* [[User:Genjix]]
* [[User:Kiba]]
* [[User:MagicalTux]]
* [[User:Nanotube]]
* [[User:Sgornick]]
* [[User:Ripper234]] - Added on March 2013
MagicalTux is the only [http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Sysops_and_permissions#Bureaucrats beaurocrat], and nobody else is capable of appointing new admins.
[[Wiki_admin_nominations|This page]] will contain nominations for new admins, and hopefully some of them will be added in the future, as needed.
= Core Rules =
Ideally, we would all follow [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Etiquette standard wiki etiquette]. In addition to this, here are some proposed main guidelines to follow.
# Edits should respect [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Neutral_point_of_view NPOV]. Do not merely revert edits if you disagree with some perspective; instead, try to rephrase the language in a way that does not change the original perspective, while being more agreeable to your own. Discussing things on the talk page is never a bad idea.
# Discussions that are not utter rubbish (spam/gibberish) should not be deleted or reverted. Though everything remains in history, archiving rather than deleting makes things easier to find later. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Archiving_a_talk_page for how wikipedia does it. (The template stuff probably doesn't exist here.)
# Avoid [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Reverting revert wars] and [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Edit_warring edit wars] they are unproductive. Seek cooperative solutions and compromises which satisfy everyone. Perfection is not a goal here.
## In case of dispute, citations should be brought in to support a POV.
## Citations should be "convincing". Quoting a few opinions and prefixing an opinion with "some claim that" is not cause to violate NPOV.
# Wikipedia has a lot to say about [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Dispute_resolution dispute resolution]. Read it. Then start hoping we never have to deal with such complexity.
## In brief, these guidelines say: 1. talk it over. if that fails, 2. request community input. if that fails, 3. more formal mediation by neutral third party.
= Complaints =
To report a violation of the guidelines, contact one or more wiki admin via user talk page, email, forum, or IRC - whatever method(s) the person has listed on the user page.
Continued edit wars or other unproductive cycles may merit administrative actions such as warnings, locking articles, temporary or permanent bans.
