Warnings. 7 Tips on How to Become a wikiHow Admin. Any admin can nominate any contributor that they are willing to devote time to mentor. In addition to a time commitment, these admins will be investing their personal credibility in their ability to choose nominations wisely. If at least 3 other admins second the nomination, the contributor can become a “trial admin” for three months. However, any admin can oppose trial adminship as this nomination is unfolding. An objection is defined as a strong “no” that must have a good reason, backed up by an example. If there are more objections than there are people supporting, the candidate doesn’t get approved for “trial adminship”.

If the candidate gets approved, we give them the buttons for a three month trial. At any point during the three month trial period, any admin can suggest that the candidate lose trial adminship rights. Nominations will be done on a continuous rolling basis, rather than at set times.
