...and so shall it be that every Admin is presented with Shit-Wading Galoshes, a Steel-Plated Banhammer, and an Industrial Strength HuffMaster 2000 upon inception to the order.

“Better to reign in Uncyclopedia than serve in Wikipedia.”
~ John Milton on stating the obvious

Are you looking to join a team of enthusiastic and extremely sarcastic individuals? Do you like to feel like you are a valuable part of a "team?" Do you want an employer who considers you his slave?

If you said "I prefer not to answer" to any or all of these questions, you may be qualified to be a sysop at Uncyclopedia!

The process:

  • The first 10 days of a month (1st - 10th), registered users have a vote to see if we need more ops (active op votes count double in this vote). A minimum score of +5 must be attained in order to progress to the next level.
  • The next 2 days (48 hours) of a month (11th and the 12th), any users can nominate users for oppage (not yourself), but not vote. Any nominees who do not wish to become a sysop can opt out at this stage.
  • The next 8 days (13th - 20th) registered users may vote for up to three people for oppage (active op votes count double in this vote). If only one candidate from this round would progress to the next level, that level is cancelled and the candidate is opped.
  • The following 10 days of a month (21st - 30th), the users with at least 70% of the leader are moved into a third round of voting. In this round each user gets two votes apiece (unless there are only two candidates). Stacking these votes is not allowed. In the event of a tie in this round, the candidate with more votes in the previous round than the other gets oppage.
  • The Admins, acting in consensus, shall strike any nomination and any vote that they determine is not from an active contributor in good standing on this website.

All dates/times are based upon UTC. See the talk page for discussion pertaining to these rules.

New ops for November?

Despite one user asking for new admins, there doesn't appear to be much support at present. Rather than calling a meaningless vote, I'm just updating this to say that if someone does want to call a vote, we can do so without directly impaction on the voting for the rules happening at Forum:A new VFS is in order, as that vote will be completed prior to the end of the first round of voting here. Personally, I'd rather wait until December.                               Puppy's talk page06:48 31 Oct 2013

I agree, unless there is a desperate need for another admin - December could be a good time. The last sysops vote we had was in January 2013. The only two changes then has been ChiefjusticeDS's decision to dedicate his free time to paint stripping and the status change from admin to admin and bureaucrat for Romartus. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 08:05, October 31, 2013 (UTC)
Site activity is actually recovering remarkably well since January (particularly over September-October) I see a few (potential) candidates that may be ready to step up. December is good since cracks are limited and things seem at least somewhat smooth with 4 active sysops. ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Icons-flag-au 10:59, November 3, 2013 (UTC)
The one user asking for new Admins is no longer in the house, the rules are still in a bit of flux, and indeed there is nothing about November that is profoundly different from the rest of the year. Spıke Ѧ 11:49 4-Nov-13
Now would be the ideal time to propose absurdly revoltingly lovely sandwhices. --ShabiDOO 14:53, November 4, 2013 (UTC)
