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.

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...
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.
