  1. Why do you want to become an administrator?
  2. In your opinion, what is the role of an administrator?
  3. In your view, do administrators hold a technical or political position?
  4. How do you feel admins should use their power/stand in comparison with other users?
  5. Have you been in any conflicts over editing in the past or do you feel other users have caused you stress? How have you dealt with it and how will you deal with it in the future?

  7. What sysop chores do you anticipate helping with?
  8. How important is it for you to be involved in things such as CT, FA, GA, and other community-centered items that involve discussion and voting?
  9. Do you think admins performing actions (I.e. deletions, blocks, etc.) for reasons not covered on policy should be sanctioned/punished? If so, how?
  10. What is your policy, if any, of welcoming new users? Should you welcome a new user, do you look at his/her contributions beforehand? What about anonymous IPs?
  11. How would you react if someone undeleted an article you'd mistakenly speedied? Under what circumstances would you consider it appropriate to undelete an article mistakenly speedied by another administrator, if any, and how would you approach this task?

  15. Would you look at a glass to be half-empty or half-full?

  18. How do you feel about people who already have some influence on other Star Wars communities (TheForce.Net, StarWars.com) trying to change policies here?
  19. How many clones do you think fought in the Clone Wars? (Note: You are wrong no matter what answer you give.)
  20. Who is the most awesome Jedi of all time? (Note: The only correct answer is Kyle Katarn.)
  21. What's more important to you: consensus or policy?
  22. Have you had any previous leadership experience (in your community, on the web, etc.)?
  23. What is your attitude towards users who have quit the site or have been banned, but still continue to attempt to influence the site in any way?
