An Ad hoc administration committee of Wikibooks will consist of 3 administrators assembled for the purpose of enforcing policies. The committee is "ad hoc" in the sense that it will be formed in response to specific issues.

Role[edit]

To oversee Wikibooks policies and guidelines and provide final decisions on the interpretation and enactment of enforced policies. To oversee and adjudicate voting procedures.

Activities that should precede forming the committee[edit]

The party who spots an infringement of an enforced policy should:

  • Communicate with the offending party, informing them of the infringement and asking them to correct it. The infringement should be noted on the discussion page of the appropriate article.
  • After a negative response, or 2 days, they may revert or remove the offending item.

If these measures do not work then an administrator should be contacted with the following information supplied:

  • The article, discussion or talk page involved.
  • The enforced policy that has been infringed.
  • The nature of the infringement.

Decision taking[edit]

The committee will take decisions on the basis of a majority vote.

Forming the committee[edit]

Any administrator may call an ad hoc committee into being to address a specific issue of policy enforcement. Any three administrators may form the committee. Users may request an administrator to call a committee, upon receiving such a request the administrator must either call the committee or ask another administrator to do so.
