G'day, fellow RationalWikians! Don't forget to visit the Campaign page of the 2016 Board of trustees election in order to make your voice heard. Suggested activities include:

  • Endorsing select candidates (lending a hand to your loyal henchmen and/or glorious overlords!)
  • Anti-endorsing select candidates (character-assassinating your hated opponents!)
  • Providing moar goat (please wipe afterwards)
  • Just asking questions to the candidates

Your participation might help other users better direct their votes. More importantly, it'll show the world that we've yet to go full Citizendium in terms of election hype!

Sysops can also see some extra special pages.

Sysops (short for "system operators", often called "admins") are the gods of most wikis; however, on RationalWiki, pretty much anyone who isn't an obvious vandal is made a sysop, usually whenever someone notices the newbie. Even those who oppose mainstream RW ideas are and should be given sysop.

That said, being made a sysop is still a privilege rather than a right, and sysop status may be withheld or removed for users who are disruptive or show poor judgement. Users for only few days asking to be made a sysop may find this isn't a great way to win the community's trust.

Given that the base state of most active RW users is "sysop", it should be clear that the actions of sysops are not endorsed by RW. To the extent any such thing is possible, RMF board members might be considered as speaking for the mob.

Sysops with a mighty click can cast down empires, shatter user accounts, and create an impenetrable wall between random trolls and the evil non-Euclidean vandals who lurk beyond our recent changes page. As such, give thanks to us yourself, or ye shall surely be lost.

Theoretically, there are at present 734 sysops on RationalWiki; however, many of these user accounts are inactive. Everyone present at the time of this number hitting 666 received cake.[citation NOT needed]
