in my opinion yes and no :/

but again, this is the core disagreement within admin.

we need to have an administration team and we need to have some
restrictions surrounding it.

we need to make sure that people know of the administration team behind

but, we need to make sure that if you work for it you can get there (and no
you don't have to work hard, just show some kind of enthusiasm for
evolt.org in some undefined way).

we need to make sure that the administration group is not seen as some
elitist group of individuals that won't let anyone in, it isn't and it
hasn't been, but it has been argued that some feel it is.

last but certainly not least ... we need to make sure that a certain amount
of people are always active in this administrative group ... and therefore
have the group large enough and flexible enough that it can cater for
temporary absence.
