Hi, I was browsing through http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/List_of_Wikipediasand found the number of admin users across Indic Wikipedias very low.
Hindi has only 4, followed by Bengali and Marathi with 10 and Telugu and Malayalam with 18. If you discount the inactive admin users, the count can be very low to maintain the quality. In Tamil Wikipedia, we make sure to run admin elections regularly. We choose around 4 admins every year and don't hesitate to nominate promising newcomers. This helps to share work load, give a break for wikiholics and provide a sense of belonging for the whole community. In the beginning days, most of the founding members got admin access within few weeks of meaningful contribution and this good will has never failed. Unless there are other compelling reasons for this low count of admin users, I urge every community to nominate / self-nominate good contributors and make them admins. Ravi
