Due to numerous other site activities and preoccupations, it has been a really long time - about 1.5 years - since we inducted our last batch of Admins. Here is a refresher about the Admin role:
Admin is just another role to participate in this site. There are some advantages as well as drawbacks. You will have access to the Admin forum, will be able to update much of the site information, get invited to our Admin Convention and other railfan meets, get the IRI Cap, T-shirt, etc.
However, on the flip side, you cannot indulge in controversial statements, EVEN though what you say is right and fair. So, yes, some members consider it a curtailment of their "freedom of speech", and...

Admins are not appointed based on their contributions to the site. All members are expected to receive as much or more from IRI as much as they give. This equilibrium is very important for the sustenance of this site, as well as your interest in this site. If you find that there is an imbalance, and you are contributing/blogging more without receiving any reciprocal benefits from this site, at that point, this site ceases to be of benefit to you, and you should discontinue your participation.
Members are appointed Admins on recommendations by our current Admins, based on their courtesy, politeness, maturity and other social qualities. Rail knowledge or contributions to site are not yardsticks for Admins. Many of our Admins may not know much about the Railways, but they are Admins based on their general social qualities. It is very...
Thanks for your interest. We do usually require you to be a member here for at least a few months, and get to know our other members and admins. Please keep visiting the site, and get to know the various kinds of edits and activities. If a couple of current admins recommends you, we may make you an Admin sooner.
This is a bureaucracy-free site, and we have very few rules or policies. However, since Admins have a lot of edit freedom, it takes longer. Also, there are few more senior members whom we wish to appoint first.
Some features are in development, whereby we can give members some edit capabilities, without the requirement to be an admin. This may make the transition smoother, while allowing reliable and controlled updates possible.

******** A Dedicated Blog On Rail Fastening System ******************
1 Fish Plate: In rail terminology, a fishplate, splice bar or joint bar is a metal bar that is bolted to the ends of two rails to join them together in a track. The name is derived from fish, a wooden bar with a curved profile used to strengthen a ship's mast.The top and bottom edges are tapered inwards so the device wedges itself between the top and bottom of the rail when it is bolted into place.In rail transport modelling, a fishplate is often a small copper or nickel silver plate that slips onto both rails to provide the functions of maintaining alignment and electrical continuity.
