Administrator maintenance tasks are generally being carried out very well and on time. However, a number of users and I believe that there is significant difficulty in contacting an administrator during the time of day when the wiki is busiest (around the evenings in American time zones). Important tasks where speed is essential, such as blocking and page protection, are taking a very long time because both of the most active administrators are not present during these hours.
While our policy clearly states that this wiki is to have no more than five administrators, I believe we may need to temporarily disregard that policy. I'm proposing opening Requests for Adminship for one nomination, to bring the number of administrators to six, as a temporary relief measure. Please post your thoughts.
Note: Please avoid discussing who should be an administrator for now, to avoid hostility and campaigning. Thanks.
