Administrator status is grantit ti trustie members o the commonty that's fameiliar wi Wikipedia policies. Admins dinna hae ony byordinar authority on Wikipedia, but is hauden ti heich standards, sin they are seen bi some uisers as the "offeicial face" o Wikipedia. Admins shuid be mainerlie, an shuid shaw guid juidgment an patience in dealin wi ithers. Nominees shuid hae been on Wikipedia lang eneuch for fowk ti see gif they hae thir qualities or no. Houaniver, adminship shuidna be a muckle thing. Admin actions is reversible; bein an admin is maistlins an extra responsibeility, sin there are rules an policies that juist applees til admins.
