Wikipedia:Hat collecting: Difference between revisions

(add possible signs)
== Possible signs ==
* Ignoring notices on [[WP:RfPERMPERM|Requests for permissions]] or [[WP:RfA|Requests for adminship]] that discourage relatively new editors from applying for rights.
* Overly participating in admin areas (e.g. [[WP:ANI|The administrators' noticeboard]]) or unnecessary clerking of such areas.
* Participating in [[WP:PROJ|project]] namespace discussions from the start without other contributions including content contributions and counter-vandalism.
* Advanced knowledge of Wikipedia from the very start - hat-collectors may thoroughly read policies and guidelines to get their wanted hats faster (note that this might also indicate [[WP:SOCK|sockpuppetry]].)
* Not showing a genuine need for rights when requesting them.
* When a request is declined, asking for how to obtain the right in question.
