Once those minimums are reached, the user should request administrator rights in a public forum, ''not on a user's message wall''.

Hello! It looks like Baron Samedi Ghede has already removed administrator rights from the user. So, like Sannse said, there's no need for staff intervention at this point.

However, I would very highly recommend not granting administrator rights to users without any edits. The user in question, X0Nightmare0x, had only one edit before being made an administrator and that "edit" was a message wall post asking for administrator rights.

I would suggest that the current administrators and bureaucrats of your wiki gather together and come up with a list of minimal requirements for any users requesting rights. Once those minimums are reached, the user should request administrator rights in a public forum, not on a user's message wall. Once a forum post has been created, the current administrators, bureaucrats and regular editors should vote on whether or not they think the user is trustworthy and helpful enough to be made an admin. The decision should not be left up to one individual.
