This is a list of AVEN's former and present administrators. Currently, moderators and Project Team members are elected by the members of AVEN, and these moderators and Project Team members elect the administrators. Numerous dates are uncited as no publicly citable information exists, some information may also be lost or missing.

As the creator of AVEN, David Jay (AVENguy) is the "Root Admin". The Root Admin appoints Tech Admins, rather than organizing an election.

Kez stepped down as an admin, and became a mod (again) rather than resigning entirely. Between 2005 and 2010, specific roles for administrators were irregular and mostly informal and unwritten.

History

No official administrator positions existed prior to 2004. Cate Perfect and Live R Perfect were both appointed as temp admins and served for a short period between September 2004 and December 2004.

Although administrators are currently elected by the forum management, this wasn't always the case. Infact, the following three administrators were publicly elected by the members of AVEN in December 2004

Member Appointed Departed Position
Aeireono December 2004 June 2005 "Europe/Africa admin"
Kez December 2004 January 2006 "Oceania/Asia admin"
Jeremy Adams (Shockwave) December 2004 February 2005 "North/South America admin"

By default, AVENguy was listed as an admin, pushing the total to four. These administrator roles were based on regions, or more specifically timezones. This was actually one of the few occasions were an admin was appointed to a specific role, though specific roles have since been reestablished in recent years.

A similar system was first proposed in October 2004, which was later adapted and set up. The voting system questioned and voted on in July 2006, with a majority voting in favor of keeping the system rather than replacing it with public elections.

Temporary admins were common throughout 2006, particularly towards the end of that year. They were usually appointed to combat spammers, moderators and later Project Team members offered to temporarily administrate the forums during these attacks. In recent years, no temp admins have been appointed, they're now unheard-of on AVEN.
