The wiki I am the admin of is finally starting to get more traffic, which comes with the downside of more vandalism. One of the frequent editors suggested that I apply for Bureaucrat status so I could promote some trusted users to help combat the vandals. I asked a few questions and was directed to these admin forums.

So where must I apply for the promotion to Bureacrat? thanks alot. {{SUBST:Admin sig}} 13:43, March 9, 2012 (UTC)

If you couldn't get in touch with a local bureaucrat, you could ask for rights here.
