    I know what you said, I need to wait for six months, but how does that voting thing work ?  And is being on here for six months and have 500 edits on here are the only things to be required to be an administrator  ?

    • Here are the other requirements:

      • Follow and work to implement the Wiki policies, including Vandalism Policy and the Manual of Style.
      • Contribute to articles using correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
      • Understand the difference between vandalism and bad faith edits.
      • Demonstrate patience with new users and be willing to help point them in the right direction.
      • Be active in the community: communicate with other users through talk pages, IRC, email and/or vote frequently.

    • So does this mean I need to help other users ? What do you mean the difference between vandalism and bad faith edits, aren't they both things that we shouldn't do ? And you still didn't answer my question about voting. What an I supost to do ? Vote for myself ?

    • For the first two questions... yes. As for the question about voting; sorry, but you can't vote for yourself.

    • I figured that, but that's what it seems like since your not telling me. How does that voting thing work ?  I need to know when the time comes. And about helping other users, how many do I need to help ? Or does it matter ?

    • The voting is quite simple:

      In order to vote on nominations for administratorship, you must be a registered user with more than 5 un-reverted edits. There are three sections for each nomination: Support, Oppose, and Comments.
      • Use a # sign instead of a * to mark the votes so it is easy to see the number of votes.
      • The nominee should not vote for themselves, but instead mark the initial section of the nomination as Accepted along with their signature. The nominee may make additional comments in the Comments section.
      • You may provide a rationale (reason) when supporting a nomination.
      • You must provide a rationale when objecting to a nomination. Any objection that clearly has no connection to this project or one that does not list a rationale can be considered invalid.
      • If you wish to discuss the nomination without voting, use the comments section.
      • If you wish to remove your vote, please strikethrough it by surrounding it with <s></s>. This is so we can accurately track the voting, especially once it's archived.

      And regarding the second question.... The Administrators policy page doesn't really give an exact number of users whom you need to help.
