    I am an experienced Wikipedia user and I am looking to buy an admin account. I would even be up for discussion on getting help from an administrator on getting a link back on a template that was removed by another administrator. PM me please.

    Anyone can be an editor but I am looking for an admin editing account, basically an account that has been established and has more permissions than the general user

    keep in mind that there are no minimum needs of being an admin. It is suggested that you have at least six months of experience and 3,000 edits in wikipedia. Even now there are editors who are proposing upping the requirements suggested because standards have risen so much.Try to maintain your cool throughout the whole process. If you constantly argue with the people who are opposing your RfA and you may gain even more opposition.

    I understand that and I have been a user for over 6 months and have always worked towards the bettering of the site. I have worked hard on my wiki account and it is still not ready for admin privileges as there are still some things I need to do before I even try to get it. I need an admin account for something very specific and I need it now and I am willing to pay...so wiki admins hit me up if you are tired of keeping up with it. I will maintain it and I am not doing anything malicious.

    It would be a good idea to obtain rollback tools or other user rights (such as template editor) first before requesting administrator ship.

    Hey King SEO good info for others reading the post, I am in the process of doing these things, right now I have been focusing on the templates and almost have enough to apply for a template editor. I have been looking into the rollbacks and I know I need to get deep into that before I can become an administrator. I have plans to make my current account an administrator but that takes time. I am looking to BUY an admin account today. Are you an admin? Do you have template editor rights? Rollback tools? If so let me know and maybe I can make a deal with you.

    Since this has been brought up, has anyone had luck getting back links from Wikipedia down in the reference links?
