From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A list of all users who are currently administrators (sometimes referred to as "sysops") in the English Wikipedia can be found here. There are 882 (as of now) administrator accounts (active and otherwise), 458 of them active (as of 2023-10-01). Activity is defined as 30 or more edits during the last two months. Administrators who have been completely inactive for over a year or having fewer than 100 edits in the last 5 years are routinely de-sysopped, though they can reactivate their status through a simple request within two years of being de-sysopped. The number of active admins, and the date for it, in this paragraph are updated automatically on a daily basis by Rick Bot.

New administrators are selected through Requests for adminship. To check if the lists below are up to date, check the user rights log for any new admins who have not been added. New selections are recorded at Wikipedia:Successful requests for adminship, and removals of adminship are recorded at Wikipedia:Former administrators.
