Blue check

This page is an official policy on PvXwiki.

It has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that all users should follow.


For more information on what a Build Master is, see PvXwiki:Build Masters.

A system-generated list of Build Masters can be found here

A category containing links to all resolved RfBMs may be found here.

The Process


Candidates may be nominated either by themselves, or other individuals. The nominator should indicate the reasons that he or she feels that the nominee would be a valuable asset to the Wiki community, giving particular regard to why they believe that the candidate deserves the additional powers of a Build Master. The candidate should then indicate their assent to the nomination (if they so choose), and should add any additional comments regarding their candidacy (assuming they were nominated by someone else).

Instructions for how to nominate a candidate can be found below.


Any member of the community is free to indicate their feelings towards the candidate. These “votes” should indicate whether you support or oppose the candidate, or, alternatively, you may indicate a neutral position. These votes are used as an indicator by the Bureaucrats, and, as such, comments should indicate some insight into the position taken by the voter. While a reason is not strictly required, a vote that provides reasoning will not only be a more valuable tool for the Bureaucrats, it will also be cause for greater consideration and will have a greater impact on the final decision.

In order to maintain a sense of decorum on the voting page, responses to votes should be added to the nominees talk page, not on the nomination page itself.


It is important to note that a well-supported nomination is not a guarantee for a build master position—the final decision rests solely with the current administrative team. Voting, while an important tool, is not the deciding factor. The decision as to whether a build master is required at a given time is also left up to the current Administrators. As such, the promotion of a candidate could be held off until a later date even if the candidate were acceptable.

A nomination ends when either the Bureaucrats decide to promote the candidate, or, when the voting stagnates and no decision is reached and/or the Administrative team is unwilling to promote a candidate. Candidates may reapply for the position or may be nominated again at a later date.

Active Nominations


This simple three-step plan was adopted from the Requests for Adminship in order to facilitate nominations.

  1. Insert the following text in the active nominations section above:
    Where "Username" is the name of the nominee.
  2. Proceed to click on the red link created by the 1st template, and insert:

    {{subst:bm1|Username|Rationale for nomination. ~~~~}}

    Be sure to fill in the second argument with your actual rationale and to sign and date it.

  3. Finally, insert the following templates at the top of the nominee's talk page:


    This template will alert the user that he/she has been nominated.

Note: The nomination itself counts as a "support" vote.
