This is the page where users can request extended rights and vote on other users who are requesting rights. Please read the following regulations and instructions completely before voting or placing a request.
In the event that a staff member is being unruly or breaking the rules, a request for their demotion may be placed below in the Requests for demotion header. The same voting rules apply for this as well. However, bureaucrats who witness abuse of rights are permitted to demote users without a request on this page.
The following roles are not currently available:
- Chat Moderator
Rules for requests
Each user's request will run for two weeks, during which members of the community will vote on the request. An applicant may and should inform other users of his or her application. When you submit a proposal, you are not permitted to support yourself. You will not be penalized, but this vote simply won't be included in the final total.

How to request promotion or demotion
After meeting or exceeding the requirements, follow the following instructions to place your request.
- Make sure you have 10 mainspace edits. You are not allowed to create requests if you do not have this many.
- Add the following to the bottom of the Requests header, replacing "USER" and "RANK" with your username and desired rank, respectively (remember, doing it incorrectly looks really bad):
- Under the header and user information, write a few sentences about why you are requesting a promotion and what qualifies you for the position. Users will then vote on whether or not you should be promoted.
How to vote
To vote, a user must:
- Be an active member of the Animal Crossing Wiki for at least one week at the time the voting begins.
- Have 10 or more mainspace edits at the time the voting begins.
- Use a 'support' vote to vote FOR the proposal. Use an 'oppose' vote to vote AGAINST the proposal.
- A candidate is not permitted to vote for their own proposal.
- A vote will run for 2 weeks (14 days). After 2 weeks, the votes will be counted. A proposal must have at least 2/3 (66.6%) of the votes as a 'support' vote in order for it to pass.
- An applicant can and should direct users to this page during their proposal. However, excessive spamming of the link to this page will count against you and, in extreme cases, may result in the proposal being closed prematurely.
- If no judgment is reached after 2 weeks, the proposal is moved to the archives. You may try again after 4 weeks.
