I don't think there's a fixed policy on how we'd add new admins.

I can imagine us promoting someone to forum admin when we generally run low on active admins, such as due to an admin (who actually used to be a regular contributor) stepping down, or increased maintenance work load.

If this were to happen the current forum admins would probably reach out to regular contributors (to the game source code and assets, the forums, IRC, server management and other places / services) asking them whether they would like to help administrate the forum.

Well, I would guess that you'd need to have been a member of the community for a long period of time (we'd need to know you're trustworthy). You'd need to have a history of being rational (we can't have administrators who could, for example, get angry at a user and delete their account). There'd need to be some way that you benefit from being an administrator (for example, having some skills -- like familiarity with the forum software -- that requires administrator powers).  As Tom mentioned, the board would have to require an administrator (too many cooks spoil the broth, after all). And you'd also have to be the best choice for administrator (versus other people).

So, yeah, lot's of stuff.
