I am requesting that The Midna be promoted to Rollback. Simply put, he is one of the nicest editors here, and I think if anyone deserves this honor, it is him. He is a few edits shy of 400, but still, I support this greatly. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 03:59, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

Pictogram voting support Support: Yep. TM is just about one of the nicest people you'll meet on this site. Also lots of good contributions! That's a good combination. --AuronKaizer! 04:02, December 5, 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: Complete agreement. He is one of the nicest people around here, and deserves this, many times over.-- C2 / CC 04:03, December 5, 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: Ummm, not much to say here that hasn't already been said. I just can't see any reason not to support. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv
Pictogram voting support Support: The Midna is the nicest person I've seen on Zeldapedia. He has never done anything wrong and completely deserves Rollback. I would have nominated The Midna myself as I was awaiting him to get 400 edits. Either way, 400 edits or less, he completely and utterly deserves it. I am sure that he will be completely capable of it and will handle it with respect. In this I have no doubt whatsoever. --⽩㤖㒾 - 04:47, December 5, 2009 (UTC), your man of the world.

Baltro (talk · contributions · edit count)

Nominated for demotion due to complete lack of activity after having attained administrator rights, despite claims that they would do otherwise. As is, said user having admin rights is borderline useless to Zeldapedia as a whole. Privileges like admin rights should only be given to those who really are motivated to edit, not just admin rights in and of itself. --AuronKaizer! 22:15, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

Pictogram voting support Support: Agreed. As a matter of fact I see no way this can be opposed with good reasoning. He edited like a madman leading up to his promotion, and then all but vanished. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 22:16, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

Pictogram voting support Support: I'm sure when he gets back he'll make the "I've been really busy" excuse, but frankly I find it very hard to believe that he's more busy than all the active admins, so I have to agree with everything that's been said. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 03:02, January 2, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support:It's a shame considering he was a good editor while he was here, but as Joe said, there's no good reason to oppose this. Jedimasterlink (talk) 03:12, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Hey everyone, I'm Lisa URAQT, but most of you just call me Lisa. :D I'm running for rollback because... I feel like I've helped the community (gosh, this sounds cheesy... I'm not good at talking about myself, lol). Umm, I'm a WikiFairy, if it matters, because I clean up messy pages and I like uploading screenshots. I don't know what else to say, besides what does everyone think?

Hi, everybody. I'm running for rollback as I am a regular contributor who has undone a number of vandalisms and would like to be able to be able to undo vandalism even quicker. I feel that this will help Zeldapedia to become even better. Thanks you for your support.

Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: You haven't really done anything wrong, but you need more edits that improve the main content. Jedimasterlink (talk) 03:31, February 26, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: Same. You have too many minor edits and while that is valuable, you need to show that you can make bigger edits that will better help the wiki. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 03:42, February 26, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: You have shown bad judgment in some cases of "vandalism". I don't need to elaborate on this. You really need to get your facts straight before you revert something. To leave you with some constructive criticism on how you can improve, first of all, be careful when you edit pages on subjects you don't know everything about or feel unsure about. Someone else will probably take care of it. If in doubt, ask. Other than that, just keep making small to big edits to the mainspace, and this should turn out just fine. --AuronKaizer! 07:53, February 26, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: Good editor in most cases. I just can't bring myself to support, the same way I can't bring myself to oppose. In time, this will be a support for sure though. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 17:25, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: Your a good editor, don't get me -or anybody else- wrong. You have almost jumped the gun on how much you have edited, and haven't focused on doing other things in the community. While that isn't a strong argument in and of itself, it is when coupled with the fact most of what you have done is just some small stuff. I used to(and still do) some fairly basic editing, but it's not all I do. Don't let this get you down, you just need to widen your scope of mainspace and community editing.-- C2 / CC 03:57, March 1, 2010 (UTC)

DekuStickMaster (rollback)

DekuStickMaster (talk · contributions · edit count)

The result of the discussion was: Pictogram voting support Support


I believe that I should now be able to use rollback. While here, I have made many contributions to not only mainspace, but to community as well. I have also helped against vandals, and I usually work well with the other users. I also put notices about the rules on other users' talk pages to tell them what they did wrong (i.e. ToC suggestions).

However, there may be some reasons I would NOT be a good candidate for rollback. First of all, my internet has recently been restricted to a small time period, so I have less time than most other users. I also get impatient sometimes if someone I warned about the rules breaks them again.

Pictogram voting support Support: Being helpful, having a good attitude, sense of judgment and know-how, coupled with a good balance of mainspace vs. other namespaces does a good rollback user make. --AuronKaizer! 01:11, April 22, 2010 (UTC)

I am nominating McGillivray227 for rollback. He's well over the required amount for time and edits and is an all around nice guy. He's made a lot of good contributions here. He has made mistakes, but we all do. He also is limited on 3 days out of the week, but Zeldapedia isn't life and he still remains active. I think McGillivray is very well deserving of this honor.

Well, I've been wanting to do this for a while, so here goes nothing. I qualify to become a rollbacker; I've met the requirements (mainspace and activity). Some of my 'accomplishments' include cleaning up manga articles and making pages. I won't be offended or anything if I'm opposed, but please give reason why if you do oppose. Also, to all my friends on here, I'd rather you guys not support me because I'm a friend- if you look at my contributions and like my editing style, etc. then support, if you don't, oppose.

Hello, everyone. I have been considering this for a few months now, and I’ve decided to run for Adminship. It has been six months since I’ve been promoted to Rollbacker, and I have fulfilled all of the requirements to become an Administrator. If I do not succeed this time or if you choose to oppose, then I hope that you will give me constructive criticism of what to do differently. I will be okay if you decide to oppose. Thank you for your time. TheMidna Laughing 20:46, June 6, 2010 (UTC)

Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: I don't know. You're a cool person and a good editor, but I don't really know if being granted admin rights can actually aid you in contributing, seeing as how you contribute little to the areas of editing which requires that amount of authority. It's a lot of responsibility. --AuronKaizer! 22:31, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: TM, your a really nice guy, and I have a ton of respect and admiration for how you keep such a positive outlook. But I must be fair to you and be as honest as I can, and with that I must set my emotions aside. You have made consistenly helpful edits, but having admin should/would not have any effect over that. But while you are such a nice guy, I don't know if you can be impartial on serious issues, because you are so compassionate. I also have yet to see you take a stand and actually stand up for something--not like you don't have opinions or a backbone--but I just haven't seen it. You meet all requirements and are really personable, but I feel that you are too personable, and to be frank I don't know if you(or anybody) can change something as fundamental as that.-- C2 / CC 22:46, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Firstly, thank you for being honest, CC. Secondly, I have stood up for things, as seen here, here, and here. I just try to not offend anyone. In discussions, no one would be offended if I chose to take the opposing side. This does not have to change your vote, but I still would like to say my opinion. TheMidna Laughing 23:08, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment:I never said you haven't, I just haven't seen you do it all that often. Also if your going to be admin, your going to have to offend someone, there is no escaping that. Everybody is offended if you block them, have you seen how many socks we get(aside from Jazzy), from them not wanting to be banned? If you try to avoid offending someone when blocking, then that proves you cannot be impartial. An admin needs to be able to take a step back and make the right choice, no matter their feelings.-- C2 / CC 23:19, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: That is different. In a case where someone has to be blocked, justice must be served. I have no problem blocking a vandal nor a sockpuppet. They know the rules and they must be blocked. Also, I've had no problem reverting edits nor vandalism. TheMidna Laughing 23:24, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: But you did say you would prefer to not offend anyone, so I suppose my ananolgy failed at that point so how about this: Someone you have deep admiration for is going for admin, but you do not feel they have the qualities for adminship, but you really really like them. What do you do?-- C2 / CC 23:29, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: I would say something like: "This is hard to say, but it must be said. You're a great person, but I think that you should wait a little while longer to apply for adminship. It's nothing personal, of course, but I don't think that you are ready for this at this point." TheMidna Laughing 23:33, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Ok, I have been highly debating this in my head for awhile. I have looked over your edits and all that. And I still don't know what to do. There are pros and cons here. I need more time to seriously think this major decision over. But with that being said, CC has a point here. I honestly don't know if you would ever oppose a promotion attempt. That is the big issue here. You meet all the requirements, I like you and you are nice. But with all that being said, I have the same concern as CC in that I don't know if you are too nice for admin. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 23:38, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: If I feel the need to oppose a promotion attempt, I would do it. Also, niceness is not weakness. I have my own opinions, and I would still oppose something that I do not want to support. I have opposed suggested fights in the Temple of Courage before. I have opposed Polls on the Polls page. I do not automatically support everything just because everyone else does. TheMidna Laughing 23:44, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: You don't, you support because you don't want to be viewed as a "bad guy". You haven't showed us that you can though, so far.-- C2 / CC 23:48, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Here's what CC is saying I think. You've never voted in a demotion request. To be fair, There has not been many and you may have missed them/not been around then, but it is also possible you just didnt want to be controversial. As for promotions, from what I see you have gone neutral once when everyone else was too and have never opposed. Again, you may have missed them. But it is still backing what CC said. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 00:06, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: I have opposed here when only one other user had opposed, and I have done a neutral while most other users supported. Also, I was not aware of any demotions until after they had already happened (and the only one of which I can think is Baltro). Discussions are different; in discussions, an idea that could have a big impact is easy to support or oppose. For polls and Temple of Courage suggestions, everything is just picayune and not important. TheMidna Laughing 00:17, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: We have never said you do not have opinions but you simply haven't expressed them. You have not showed us that you will be willing to when you an admin. How are we supposed to know? This is a BIG uncertainty, TM.-- C2 / CC 00:29, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: I know that I can express my opinions (as in now, for example), and the above links show me expressing my opinions. When it comes to such things as wiki changes and the like, it is different. I just generally do not go to forums, but if I did go there, I could express myself. If you give me an example now, I'd support or oppose it because of what I think, not what others think. I've proposed a change here of which I thought myself. I can think and support/oppose by what I think. TheMidna Laughing 00:38, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment:I never said you couldn't! But you haven't done it on major promotions or wiki changes enough to let us know that you can act on your own, when no other admin is on.-- C2 / CC 00:44, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: I can't really recall any big changes nor promotions (other than the main page change, which I really do like, though we should have an image from a different game for each category), and there is almost always an Admin on, or an Admin would see whatever I support/oppose. Are there any big decisions on which I can vote? If so, expect my opinion and not the general opinion. TheMidna Laughing 00:50, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: I said this too you way long ago TM when you were a new user and you got into a disagreement or something: TM your too soft, and you said I don't want to offend anybody. That is exactly what is playing out right now, only this time its way more important. TM your a great guy, but are too soft to be an admin. You may change, but I hope you don't because this wiki would be a much meaner and snarlier place.-- C2 / CC 01:00, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: It's possible to disagree with someone nicely. I can easily do that (I'm disagreeing with you, aren't I?). By too soft, you mean that I should exert my opinions and not let anyone push me around, right? I can exert my own opinions, and I don't let anyone push me around. What do you expect me to do? If you want me to exert myself more often, I can easily do that without being mean nor offending anyone. And by the way, Joe, I said, "I will be okay if you decide to oppose." TheMidna Laughing 01:10, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: This maybe skipping back to a previous point, but as an admin nicely disagreeing is a godsend. People can be real piss-offs/slow about things, and nicely telling them no will not work. You have yet to prove that you can be stern with other users, now everybody is different, but every admin needs to be stern, honest, fair, dutiful, friendly, etc. You will have to be mean or the person you are argueing will not listen to you.-- C2 / CC 01:18, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: I can be stern if I must, but being mean is not how to win an argument. Being strict can work (with the kind of users you said) but being mean just causes more meanness. If I must be strict, then strict I can be, but without being mean. There is a difference. An Admin should first nicely tell them, then be strict. Starting out strict or mean doesn't usually work as well as starting out nice, then being strict, if necessary.

Pictogram voting comment Comment: TM I hope you realize I really like you as a person. You always make things pleasant and I like that. I don't want to turn you into me. I just think a little more fight would be good. This is the most fight I've ever seen in you, and I like it. The passion is there and I can tell u want this. If I could just see it a little more often, I'd support you fully. This has been very hard for me and I generally dont let others' feeling effect me. But this is. That is how much you have impacted me and how much I respect you. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 01:42, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment Comment: Thank you, Joe. I can put fight into other things, if necessary. I should put more fight into big decisions, Forums, and talk pages (that's what you mean, I'm assuming) and I can do that if needed. And CC, I was being stern by once again disagreeing with you by saying that I can, in fact, be stern. I've said multiple times that I can exert myself, and I've even exerted myself some times. I can exert myself even more in the future with big decisions and changes to the wiki. I can do the same more often everywhere else, too. To your most recent post, CC, I really do appreciate this and understand what you are doing. You're making me exert myself the most I've ever exerted myself on this wiki, and I know that you care about me. I thank you for this. Was it hard when you got your Admin rights? How much more responsibility is it? By asking these questions, don't think that I'm backing down. I have to go to sleep now, so I won't respond until tomorrow.

Pictogram voting comment Comment: You really do want this, and you won't back down. Basically I would rather you wait until you do have the full skill set, and currently your like 98/100. You need to be 100/100 or you are going to be overwhelmed with responsibility. Yes it was a huge change, and it is a much bigger load of responsibilty than rollback. Like ten fold. As an admin I know from experince. Mentally your ready, but you must be prepared to exert yourself even more so. If I can see you do that, then I'll gladly support you. You've come along way, so could you just hold off until your all the way there? To be fair I don't know if I was, so I earnestly want you too be ready.-- C2 / CC 02:12, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

And you work to improve a little bit in the areas discussed here (meaning I don't want you to change who you are. I just want you to change your basic outlook a little) I will support you whole heartedly in a month or so (or whenever you re-run). I think you will make a great admin; I just don't quite know if you are ready at this exact moment. You are very close though. You have the edits. You have the loyalty. You just need to work on your boldness ever so slightly. And if you do that, I will support you. And please don't take what we are saying as you needing to become more hostile or anything. Everyone likes you because you are you. Your basic personality is great. I just want to be assured that if the time ever comes, you will be able to make decisions that benefit the wiki, even if they are not popular among some. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 03:31, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

I'll exert my opinion when I should, and I'll improve in these aspects. Thank you for your advice, CC and Joe. I appreciate it. TheMidna Laughing 21:22, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: TM, we appreciate you, we just want you to be ready to for it. An admin needs to be mentally tough and prepared to tae whatever comes their way, with an equal helping of compassion and sternnesss. If you try to have an equal ammount of both you will at least be close to being impartial, something I think all admins have a difficult time doing. On as side note, what I think we have all forgotten and I should have said earlier, "Actions speack louder then words". While you say ou can be stern, we haven't seen you put your words into action. And that is why everybody needs to be 100% on this, not just assume that because he makes some good edits and is nice he should automatically get it. He should get it because you are as serious as he is, and you must take a step back and really look at his or her contributions and edits as well as their actions and only then can you support. -- C2 / CC 23:27, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: Ok, it should be noted this is not a full fledged oppose. In truth, I havn't really reached a clear conclusion in my head on what to do here. But the lack of seriousness here is bugging me to say the least. I was on when you suggested this and I still havn't reached a conclusion on this major decision for the wiki. I've been looking through stuff for a long time and votes like the above where someone chants your name (later changed for that reason I'm sure) or giving some random, unrelated comment shows the lack of actual seriousness that some people put into these. Friends support because they are friends, people don't want to hurt feeling, etc. This is of course a website. I'm not trying to say this is the most serious thing ever. But we are all here and everything should be taken seriously. The more the convo above goes on, the more I am thinking you may not be quite ready. I still like you. I may support this fully in the future. And heck, I may even change this vote here. But I think this needs to run more than 24 hours.

Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: I think you're a good editor, but I also agree with CC and EDJ45. I've reconsidered the situation. I hope you understand that I like and respect you, but I can't say you'd make a good admin. You're very nice, and while that is an admirable quality in a person, it isn't a quality an admin should have in large amounts. I don't believe you're capable of making impartial decisions based upon logic and not whether it would hurt the affected user's feelings, etc. In general, you're a bit too willing to give people the benefit of the doubt. Also, since you don't really edit in any areas where admin powers would be used, I'm getting the impression that you're running for status/respect, although I may be wrong on that point. If I'm right, you should know that no one thinks any less of you for not being an admin.

Hello. I’m running again for adminship. Last time, CC and Joe pointed out a few things that I had to fix about myself. I’ve fixed them. I now express myself all the time, oppose whenever I feel the need, and I don't hold back what I'm feeling. I express myself how I feel. I feel completely ready for it. And something else makes me feel compelled: Joe’s retirement coming up. With Joe gone, we would have one fewer admin. Just recently, there was a vandal on the loose. I, with the help of other users, had to put up with him or her and revert the vandalism; I couldn’t block the vandal. Other times, there have been users who needed a block; I couldn't block them either. Also, when there’s a user who is violating the rules, I can’t tell the user “to stop or receive a block” because I can’t block. I feel even more ready than last time, and I know I’m ready for this. Thank you. TheMidna Laughing 01:49, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

From Beyond The Stars (talk · contributions · edit count)

So I've been considering running for rollback for a long time, and I think now is the time. I know I haven't had the best record, but I've calmed down a lot and I feel I am an active and dedicated member of this Wiki. I would like Rollback because I've taken down a lot of vandals, and I want to be able to revert their edits quicker and easier. I've also noticed a few of the vandals I have caught have been when only one or two other users have been online thanks to my timezone; I think this makes me especially useful in the catching of vandals. However, while I don't see myself going inactive at all when school rolls around, I will definitely be busier, so take this into account when you make your vote. I know I haven't been the best or most productive member of Zeldapedia, but I feel like I've improved greatly and I'm ready for this.

McGillivray227 (talk · contributions · editcount)

Hi-Oh guys, I’ve decided to run for administrator rights. I’m a very prominent editor at 808 mainspace edits and 1707 edits in total. Most of my edits are mainspace, so I think I’m a good example of a good editor. While I haven’t had many chances where I can prove I can lay down the law when needed, I have done it when I have been given the chance. I have also taken down (reported) my own handful of vandals, and I’ve run into some situations where a vandal has run for awhile longer than they have been noticed and I think that administrator rights can help me take them down before they vandalize for longer.

My only request is that people be serious about this. During my Rollback nomination, most of the votes were unserious and probably were supports because the voters considered me their friend. - McGillivray227 04:15, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

I was going to wait until rollback users would have their name a different color in the history, but I figured I might as well try to get rollback in preparation for it.

Joe thought that I was alter when I first came (I didn't think my edits were that bad) and I did upload images for a while from the dreaded non-cannon Wii version of Twilight Princess.

Jäzzi (talk · contributions · editcount)

Okay, so, if you've been on the IRC lately, you probably know that I've been wanting to run for Admin for a while. But, felt as if I wasn't grown up enough for it. But today pushed me over the edge, with this Exstrame‎'s recent spam articles. Due to that, it made me realize all the things I can't do to help out the wiki.

Also, I'm running today to find out what you guys think I should approve on. I know I am probably going to get endless amounts of {{opposes}}. But I can't help but run.

The reasons why I think I should become admin are:

  • I have grown up from when I first joined the wiki.
  • I've reverted and undone vandalism.
  • I'm nice to the users, but not too nice.
  • I know when to be harsh, but not too harsh.
  • It would be a benefit to have another admin on the wiki due to some absences.
  • I'll be able to delete pointless spam articles instead of putting the Speedy Delete Template up.
  • I'll be able to block users that should be blocked.
  • I'm on when most other admins aren't.
  • I'm one of the few remaining active rollbackers.

The reasons why I think I shouldn't become admin are:

  • Although I have grown up, I still have some growing up to do.
  • My personal life. Don't have to expand that.
  • Sometimes I can be too harsh.
  • When I first joined, don't have to expand.
  • The WMM issue.
  • I still do some things without a community discussion.
  • I'm active at other wikis, and that could interfere.

There they are. The reasons why I think I should be admin, and why I think I shouldn't. Well, that's that. And now the voting begins. --ϐαςς ᴶαϟϟιJapas Artwork 18:42, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Pictogram voting support Support: I fully agree, as you are the only rollbacker that's been really active, from what I've seen. With all this moving debate and the controversy with wikia, you're one of the very few that's staying dedicated to Zeldapedia regardless of community choice (Altman knows I'm outta here if we stay with Wikia.) You're maturing as an editor significantly. True, you might have a skirmish with admins from time to time regarding edits, but really now, I doubt any of the admins can say they haven't before they got their status, or after the fact, for that matter. You have a bright future as an editor, you're very knowledgeable with coding, and have been a great help to me in that office.--RedeadhunterContributionsEdits (talk) 18:52, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: You have to understand I obviously mean nothing personal with this vote; I'm simply taking into account things that have happened in the past. I do think you are a brilliant editor and are worthy of the administrator abilities, however, I honestly don't think you're ready to handle a huge deal like administrator rights. It is from what I know a huge responsibility. Also, in the past, you have (as you mentioned) brought your personal life into online affairs (whether that be ZP or the IRC). That alone isn't what I'm criticizing as we all do sometimes, but you do it often and sometimes to huge extents. The last few "incidents", while taking place on the IRC, were really kind of huge and definitely played a large part in my vote. You have also in the past overreacted to things (the WMM/Bioshock issues, etc.) rather largely, which is something you should work on, I think...Finally, a minor issue is that you take a wee bit too much initiative by doing things without community decision as stated in your request. This isn't meant to be an all out HATE HATE HATE but it's some stuff you can work on. Again, I mean absolutely nothing against you personally and consider you a great friend. -Minish Link 19:16, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: Although I don't think you're quite ready to handle this responsibility, I'd like to point out that you have definitely grown up a lot since you started editing here. That stuff that happened around when you joined, as far as I'm concerned, is irrelevant at this point because of that. (And yeah, I know I don't know you too well, mainly because I'm rarely on the IRC, but still I think you're capable of maturing to a point where you can do this.) Jedimasterlink (talk) 19:58, November 20, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: I'm sorry, but at present, you simply do not meet the specifics of the job, despite your admirable dedication towards editing. Even though you've received multiple warnings and been told to improve on this in the past, you've continued to act callously towards other editors without much of any reason at all in most cases; been involved in incidents on other wikis which have lead back here, making us look bad; and continued to make changes to the markup without asking. Additionally, you've had poor judgment in the fields of rollback usage at times, which I am afraid could spill over into deleting pages outright if admin rights are given. Needless to say, to gain the privilege of being an administrator, you must be able to act rationally, and listen to the advice/warnings of others. Now, I'm not going to say I'm perfect at keeping a level head at all times, but rarely do I lose my sense of rationality, which is quintessential in the admin headspace. I'm not entirely sure you would be able to handle the responsibility, either, as you've turned down positions in the past, citing exactly that as a reason why. You've got to be able to separate admin "work" from anything that goes on in your life as much as possible. That's not saying you have no room for improvement, because you've improved so much already, but you've still got much to do before you're ready for this, in my opinion. And I don't mean more editing; there's ever so much more to being an administrator than editing. If show genuine, significant improvement in the negative areas of your editing as mentioned above, you might make it just yet. --AuronKaizer! 20:38, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Now to the reasoning. There are a few things that make me very cautious about you being an admin: the things that were already said; you sometimes get to the point of breakdown, which should never, or very rarely, happen in admins; you have trouble with some users, even not being able to talk to them (you have improved some here, but still), which is obviously very important to be able to handle for an admin; some things that don't need to be said here; vandalizing other wikis is not a good admin quality; not being able to handle some words being written (you've improved some on this); and other things. I don't feel like you're ready for admin at this time. Of course, my list didn't include the positive factors (you're more ready for admin then some others), but I don't think that now is the time. TheMidna Laughing 21:02, November 20, 2010 (UTC) EDIT: Oh, and I forgot to mention about WMM; to put it frankly, that didn't turn out nearly as well as it could have been.

Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: You are a really dedicated editor, and from where you have came you really have improved in almost all respects. I am quite proud of you for making the change and using this "second chance" so to speak. However, you seem to be in a complete opposite situation mentally as TM when he went for admin the first time. He was far too nice, you are far to hard. TM gave users way to many chances, you hardly give them a chance at all. This is just something I have been noticeing. I think the general sense is that you are way to hard on users and arn't fair sometimes. Also, you tend to overreact, such as in WMM case, and have made ZP look bad because of that. To be honest, I was tempted to do the same, but I did not because I was an admin who represented the community and I do not want this Wiki to get a bad reputation. Being an admin meens thinking about something before doing it. As an aside, you also tend to be over dramatic, almost to an unhealthy extent. You where worse, I know, but you need to calm down even more. All in all Jazzi, you still have to make a couple of adjustments, to varying degrees to be truely ready.-- C2 / CC 22:43, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: You're a good editor and you will often ask an admin before acting upon something you're not entirely sure about, but you lack the actual responsibility and user-interaction skills necessary for an admin. While I think you're a nice enough person in general and you have definitely grown a lot since originally coming here, you tend to hold grudges pretty much forever, badmouthing people you happen to not like when they have done literally nothing to upset you at that particular time, just because they make a shoutbox comment or something like that (although I guess that specific scenario is now out of the picture... thanks Wikia >.>). You have also shown that once you get worked up over something (and to be perfectly frank, you tend to get upset really fast if it involves something you dislike), you will completely ignore anybody and everybody that tries to help you, which is definitely not a good quality for an admin, who are supposed to come to important conclusions together. You will often get extremely emotional about things, where admins should handle the majority of important events calmly and rationally. And I really won't get too into this, but (as of the last time I was on the IRC, which I guess was a while ago; disregard this if it doesn't apply anymore, I guess) you seem to have certain...personal issues that I think you should resolve before you sign up for an important position. Essentially, you have the technical aspect of editing down and I think you could benefit from the edit-related admin powers such as deleting pages, but you lack the emotional maturity to handle the community-based aspects of the job.

Minish Link (talk · contributions · editcount)

Hello everyone.

Okay, before you call me a complete and utter idiot and a moron and every other way to express your feelings that I am an unintelligent git who is doing something...well, unintelligent, let me just say this- While I would love to become an administrator, that's really not what this is for, since I know that everyone is going to oppose me for being inactive.

I would like to be an administrator but I really have to know what it is people would like me to improve on (aside from inactivity). We'll assume for the sake of this that this marks the end of my inactivity now and I'll become more active (though obviously, I can't promise this and there's no reason for you to trust this). If you oppose my becoming an administrator, just tell me why- this is really for constructive criticism.

As with Jazzi, I'll state the reasons why I think I should/shouldn't be an admin--

I should become an admin, because...

  • I am a good editor, find myself to be literate and intelligent
  • I am good with wikia text coding
  • I can answer any questions for newbies/etc.
  • I can normally keep a very level head and my rationality, though there have been one or two incidents where I have blown up and screwed up majorly
  • I, personally, would like to become an administrator to delete pages, block vandals, and be able to help out with the wiki's major decisions.

I shouldn't become an admin, because...

  • I have been only semiactive the past few months
  • Sometimes I can be immature and screw up
  • I can be pretty biased

That's what I think about the matter. Now what do all of you think? I've stated the reasons I think I should and shouldn't- Hell, you can even all oppose just because I'm inactive, I don't care- but I've waited to do this for a while and just want to know what people think (my blog about it barely had any comments...>.>) -Minish Link 23:35, November 27, 2010 (UTC)

Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: You're a complete and utter idiot and a moron and an unintelligent git who is doing something unintelligent. You just don't strike me as the admin type. It's not so much that you're doing something wrong, but you just don't seem to have grown past the rollbacker stage in any way. You lack refinement and overall maturity, in other words. Also, you tend to be a tad bipolar at times; you're pretty calm most of the time, but then you sort of freak out when you start to obsess over it, at which point you ignore everybody and seem to think that admitting to your faults makes everything better, where instead it just makes you seem more immature. I'll admit this has not happened a whole lot, but when it does happen, there seems to be no reasoning with you. The first time you wanted to run for admin comes to mind. Also, the Feathin incident was just... yeah. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 23:48, November 27, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: First of all, the incident mentioned above in which you said a word that is not meant to be said here and then said that you didn't care if you got blocked is a pretty big faux pas. Also, on the IRC (though different than Zeldapedia, of course), just today you said, "<Farron> sigh, I wish I had OP to abuse", which could be a joke, but is still important to bring up. And a third major thing is that one time when WMM and Jazzi were in the same channel, and I was trying to get them to be calm to each other (they were already talking previously), and I decided to entrust you with OP. You made a rash decision to kick them both without even asking for background information or anything. If you can improve on these three things (and of course what Xykeb and Jazzi said), I may be more willing to go neutral or maybe even support. Right now, I don't think that you're ready.

Jedimasterlink (talk) 02:35, November 28, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: Well, what Jazzi, Xykeb, and TM said is true, I feel that you arn't as emotionally immature as they make you out to be. Also, some of the negatives that they said are not explained in full context, and the "sigh, I wish I had OP to abuse" is obviously sarcasm and I do not believe it is such a big deal to joke about something. But what keeps me from supporting is that you need to be more mature in how you present yourself, even though the IRC is supposed to be casual, it does not inheritaly mean the IRC is where you can be neurotic. Basically, if you stop being biased towards your friends and be calm all the time this neutral shall turn into a support.(As an aside, I'm willing to forgive a general inactivity so long as you keep comming back and making positive contributions to the Wiki.)-- C2 / CC 03:02, November 28, 2010 (UTC)

Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: Still a smidge too early in your editing career, this. And a bit out of nowhere. Keep editing, take initiative, and keep IRC stuff (heh, although I guess that won't be a problem anymore) away from here, and hey, it might happen. Oh, and I must say you excelled on selecting your pros and cons, which I consider important due to the fact that self-insight and not necessarily taking oneself too seriously is a useful ability. --AuronKaizer! 14:57, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: While you aren't a bad editor, I just don't feel that you are ready for a position of authority. This isn't because I think you would abuse the position but more along the lines of you not being mature enough to know how to handle increased responsibility. --Birdman5589 (talk) 16:23, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

Fierce Deku (talk · contributions · edit count)

I've been active here for a while now, I think I've made a lot of good edits here and am ready to become a rollbacker. You all have seen my edits and/or looked at my edit history so I'll let all that speak for itself. I have had a couple incidents in the past with changing something early that was later stated as demanding more community discussion, and with re-undoing an undone edit without proper explanation/linking to relevant conversations. These were a while ago though. They've been resolved and I think that I have gotten past those kinds of edits. I'm not yet familiar with all the finer points of certain rules and things but I feel that I've demonstrated enough understanding/competence that I can be trusted with rollback rights. I've reverted vandalism before and at least once or twice I've done the manual equivalent of rolling back, so I think I'd be helpful if I had the ability. Thank you all in advance for your support and/or constructive criticism (which is also a form of support). Even if you do support this promotion, I’d appreciate as always any advice you should have on how I can improve in the future.--FierceDeku 06:39, February 4, 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting support Support: I don't really have much to say aside from the fact that this is something you deserve. You're involved with the community, which is always a good thing, join in in discussions/start discussions. You may not be familiar with the finer points, but you're still fairly new and you're getting to learn them. You seem to have mark-up down and it appears you know your coding. I think this is needed for you. And I was gonna nominate you if I hadn't flubbed in my "eh, running on MW, why not run here" thing, so I truly apologize for that. I wish you the best in this run, and I think it looks pretty good for you. --BassJapas 11:46, February 4, 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting support Support: This is probably going to sound like echoes, but I was actually considering (today, coincidentally enough) to nominate you for this (and apparently so were a few others...). So, reasoning-wise, you're a good editor (and although a few bad things have happened on your behalf, the good definitely outweighs the bad) and you edit well. You're not very involved in the community, and I'd like to get to know you better. Also, I want you to be the first person whose status I change (that is, "dibs!")

Hey everybody, Minish here again. Well, time again I request being an admin; I feel that I'm fully qualified with enough edits and enough time on the site (just reached a year!) and all that jazz. I also feel I have matured a lot since my last request and in the past few months in general. Basically the reasons I'd like to become an administrator is to delete pages, move images, and block vandals. I'll highlight my achievements and all that now:

So those are the "big things" I've done, now I'd just like to highlight the reasons I feel I should become an administrator, and the reasons I shouldn't.

Reasons I should become an administrator are:

  • I'm pretty level headed
  • I'm unbiased most of the time
  • I'm online pretty frequently and therefore could take down vandalism pages and stuff like that
  • While this is kind of unrelated, I find loads of mis-named images and would like to be able to move them.

Reasons I shouldn't become an administrator are:

  • Sometimes I lose my cool and get mad; while this isn't often lately and I'm working hard on it it does happen occasionally
  • I can be biased sometimes
  • Sometimes I can act immature, and while this usually isn't on-wiki it has happened once or twice

Well, there you go, people. Say what you will. Thanks for your time. -Minish Link 20:53, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting support Support: You are definitely in the upper level of contributors to this here site right now. While you do have some admitted flaws and a certain risk factor as has been discussed before, for my own part I believe your dedication and contributions to this site so far could indeed be augmented by the granting of administrator rights. These days, we are quite frankly quite low on active admins, and even though we may not have the site requiring the most administrative attention, it's good to always have access to more administrators on active duty. Besides which, a good number of editors with less edits, trustworthiness and dedication than yourself have been granted the rights, so why not. I hope I can trust you to make good editing decisions, not to misuse your powers, and that this will only serve as a catalyst for more activity and editing on your part. --AuronKaizer! 20:59, January 25, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: Sorry, but I haven't really noticed a change from last time. You've been pretty active, which is good, but you've basically left the community. And there was that incident in which you came on the IRC and just let someone have it, for lack of better terms. Keep working, editing, improving your emotional control, and trying, and you may get a support from me someday. TheMask-Mimic 21:00, January 25, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: While I understand your oppose completely and all that, it frustrates me that you've brought the IRC into a reason for opposing me purely because wiki rules do not, or to be fair, did not apply to the IRC. The IRC and the wiki are a totally separate thing, as have been discussed before. I just don't think it's entirely fair to bring that in specifically for a reason for opposing. EDIT: And about me leaving the community- please tell me, what is that supposed to mean? I thought it was my wiki activity that counts, not IRC. The IRC was screwing things up mentally and so I left there and became more active here; in fact, I personally think I've been involved in the community moreso than most people. I don't really understand what you're getting at here. -Minish Link 21:04, January 25, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: The IRC and the wiki are separate, sure, but if you were to send me an email saying what you said on the IRC (or if we're talking about anything here, not necessarily that particular case), you've still sent that message to me, and that does affect how much I think that you're ready. What I mean about the community is that you haven't really been talking about other things non-wiki-related, being part of the community (while not completely required, it's still important for an admin to be involved other than just to edit). Also, I'm just not sure if you will ever do something like the Faethin (sorry if I misspelled that) incident or the one mentioned previously (the one on the IRC). One of the main reasons why I'm not going neutral is because of this. I haven't seen that you can for sure control it better than before. True, it's a rare thing when you do; but it's still important for an admin to let that happen extremely rarely, if ever. However, after rethinking, you are still active and you do have many redeeming qualities. I'll have to think this over more, but that's what I meant. TheMask-Mimic 22:30, January 25, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: I guess I get what you're saying about not being very "non wiki community" active...I personally haven't seen many opportunities to get involved, but uh, yeah. I'd appreciate if you'd at least rethink it a little bit, as selfish as that probably is. -Minish Link 01:52, January 26, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Yeah, I'm still rethinking it, of course, but I think that I'm pretty solidified on oppose. (This isn't a low oppose, though; it's an almost neutral, actually) TheMask-Mimic 02:15, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment Comment: TM, I haven't been active really, but you don't need to talk (a lot) to be an admin. As long as he stays calm here, has pleasant conversation once in awhile, it doesn't matter. He is active and that is what counts. Also, the IRC is not part of Zeldapedia. No two ways about it, so honestly that shouldn't even figure in with your vote. Just sayin'.-- C2 / CC 22:04, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: I know it's a little late, but I'd also like to point out that ShutUpNavi was (is he still?) an admin for eons and he very rarely spoke to anyone. I personally feel in the past few weeks I've gotten a lot more involved in the community than before and I already do talk to people on here on a pretty much daily basis. I would like to ask you to reconsider your vote due to these factors; however, I don't want to pressure you into doing anything you don't find right or anything like that. -Minish Link 21:53, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Not to make a dead body move in the coffin, but like I said in my first vote, random channel hoppers could think of the users in the IRC as representatives of the channel, and if the people on the channel are unfriendly/rude, they wouldn't want to join the wiki if they had that in mind. And if they joined at that time while you were on, they'd most likely think everybody on the wiki is like that all the time. --BassJapas 21:58, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: No offense intended, but that's kind of completely irrelevant given what I was just talking about. I'm not on the IRC anymore, so that can't happen anymore. I'm talkig to TM specifically about being active on the on-wiki community, on which I have had one incident. That's just unrelated is all I'm saying. -Minish Link 22:02, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: I was going off of what CC said, considering he mentioned the IRC and didn't know what had happened. And to add "No offense intended" is just pointless, considering I don't get offended by stuff like that. And just out there, but it seems as if you've only gotten more involved with the community to get the people that said they wanted you more involved in the community to up their votes. --BassJapas 22:10, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: I've asked numerous other people who feel (like myself) that being involved in the "community" (as TM said, community of non-wiki related stuff) is unnecessary. I personally feel that I am involved in the community as much as is necessary; again, look at SUN. So yes, I've worked harder to comment on blog posts and stuff like that because that's what people have been saying I'm not doing enough of. People aren't making blogs and stuff that much right now anyway, so it's a little hard for me to become involved in the community. I just wanted to bring this up with TM and ask him to reconsider. -Minish Link 22:36, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Jazzi that statement is pretty far fetched, because namely the channel hoppers have to jump through quite a bit of holes to get there. It just doesn't make sense to me, and I'm sorry, but that statement is unfounded.-- C2 / CC 22:49, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: Yeah, I really don't think you're quite yet there. I'm not going to hold past incidents against you (though they are there and are kind of hard to dislodge from the brain, but I'm attempting not to pull reference to those "incidents" as you have shown that you've pulled yourself away from it quite a bit), but I feel that you aren't that close to the community aspect of the wiki. Now, I'm not saying that an admin should be, but if an admin can perform good edits and prove right from wrong on the mainspace, I don't see why they can't be a bit on the community-side more (where I assume most of the admin powers come into play). It's really only that. You tend to stray away from the community aspects a bit, but I feel it plays a substantial role as an admin, which is why I ain't giving you support or at least not yet. - McGillivray227 23:15, January 25, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: This is close to a support, but I'm still not entirely sure that you can be relied upon to keep a level head in stressful times. -Isdrakthül 00:04, January 26, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: Hard to say since I've been inactive for so long, but I looked through some of your recent contributions and have to say that I don't particularly support or oppose this. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 22:57, January 26, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: This is a very very low support. I've been thinking about this one for a while. There are two big things that make me still think I should have gone neutral. First, I'm not sure how reliable you can be. When I started up the Youtube page, you were one of the first people to volunteer to help out, yet you have yet to finish more than two bosses. At the same time I've gone though and done six games in the same time. I really didn't hold this against you because I'm not sure what your life is like and I know that when I do something I try to be really dedicated to it. But that this is one of the reservations I have about you. The other thing that tempted me not to support is how you can be very biased and unreasonable in certain situations. Once again I didn't hold it against you because I can understand why you are like that and would pry behave in a similar fashion in your shoes. --Birdman5589 (talk) 15:29, February 4, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Thank you for reminding me, I'm actually working on it now. I had forgotten and remembered yesterday but was busy doing other things. Mainly the reason I haven't been working on it as much is because wiki-wise my primary focus is just mainspace editing as opposed to this, but I do like the project a lot and I'd like to see it through to the end. -Minish Link 17:22, February 4, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: Just so I can see how many people accuse me of being biased. and the fact you're an awesome mature editor. -Stars talk Starssprite.gif, February 4, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: I'm much more level headed now, so I'm actually going to make my vote. I don't feel you are ready, I feel that you'll probably be ready in a few more months. Like I said before, I haven't really seen you finish wiki projects (redirects not included because they weren't done solo. And the manga pages not counting because although I was off my block and on the site at that time. I wasn't really there as I was hardly on wikia then and more on facebook). You're a good editor, but you have your times of inactivity. The Faethin incident still sticks out even though it happened months ago, since an admin can't really do that. You tend to be biased at times towards friends and people you generally dislike (not like, supporting them, but ya'know, opposing them, hard to explain), but you're generally unbiased otherwise. While you keep a level head, you do tend to flip out if you over think it and over analysis it. I'd like to see you become more active in the community before this goes anywhere. I'd also like to see you become more patient, as you tend to push votes and stuff, not giving people a chance to truly think them over, and an admin will have to be able to wait while a discussion happens. You still have some work to do, but you're getting there. --BassJapas 20:14, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Thanks for voting again. In my opinion an oppose is better than a neutral anyway, since it actually means something. -Minish Link 20:18, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Minish, a neutral means they don't support you or oppose so they have no opinion, so it still means something that you are a better choice than just any random editor, but not good enough, yet. That being said, it doesn't need to be used as much as it is.-- C2 / CC 22:04, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: I guess so...It just seems like they're used too often and neutral-ing is equivalent to not voting. -Minish Link 22:07, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Neutral votes give users the ability to A) Voice an opinion (not for/against, but they can still talk about what they think of the user, how s/he can improve, and why it isn't a support or oppose), and B) Indicate that they have seen the request, considered it, and reached a conclusion (simply not a for/against one), as opposed to not doing anything and having everyone wonder if they saw it. If you expect everyone to vote, you also have to accept that neutrals will inevitably pop up and can be useful, even if they don't move the request itself anywhere.--FierceDeku 09:00, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: While I cannot commnet on your maturity due to my inactivity, I have looked a your contributions and think they are much improved since last time. -- C2 / CC 22:04, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: You are definitely a good, active editor, though I am unsure about whether you can remain level-headed when things get stressful. Work on that for a couple months and my vote will probably become a support. Jedimasterlink (talk) 02:28, February 9, 2011 (UTC)

Jäzzi (talk · contributions · edit count)

Hi all, due to our lack of active admins, I've decided to run again. It's been a month since I last ran for admin, my first request was hastily made after a morning with about five spam pages being made, and not being able to do anything about it, I wanted to get something done about it. To say the least, I was seeing red. I originally wanted to run for admin sometime in January, but having run in November, I wasn't eligible. I was reminded of running here when I started filling out my Request for Admin over at Mario Wiki. I do have a small request though, if I'm at another wiki and I have admin over there, please do not take that into consideration for a support (this is going off my last request) as the other wikis I edit at are much smaller than Zeldapedia.

I'm going to be setting this request up similar to my last request since it's the best way I know how.

Points I have improved on from last time:

  • I've discussed things with the community and haven't made a non-community decision in a while.
  • I feel as if I've grown up a lot from the last request.
  • This wasn't really a point in the last part, but it was why I didn't want to run then: I've gotten out of my depression and have been clear for a while.
  • I've patched things up with wikis where I've had previous issues on, and I'm now actually one of the wikis main contributors.
  • I've gotten to be less harsh.

Why I feel I should become admin:

  • I am actually pretty unbiased.
  • I've grown up from the previous year.
  • I discuss stuff within the community and create forums for said discussions if needed.
  • I'm pretty good with coding and templates and categories.
  • I don't hide behind my personal life anymore.
  • I'm always on Zeldapedia when I'm home, may not be editing, but the page is always up.
  • I'm quite active, and we need some actually active people as admins.
  • I've learned to be civil with people I used to be uncivil towards.
  • I've learned to keep a level head, and when I feel myself getting steamed up, I back down.

Why I feel I shouldn't become admin:

  • I still do have a bit of personal life issues.
  • I still have a bit of growing up to do.
  • I haven't been the most active, due to trying to improve other wikis.
  • While working on those wikis, I've neglected Zeldapedia a little.

Well, I've given my reasons and the most I can do now, is hope that you guys believe that I can handle this job this time around. --ϐαςς ᴶαϟϟιJapas Artwork 23:27, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

Which also leads me to question how much admin rights, if bestowed upon you, could indeed augment your contributions to the wiki. And still, your past comes back to haunt you here, and I'm still not sure whether I'd trust you not to misuse these rights if you find yourself in a particularly problematic situation again.

Instead of having a meaningful discussion with the user, you lost your cool and could not explain anything with logic.

And we should all know from me editing here for a while that I have a very distorted sense of logic and everything else. So while you think I didn't explain it with logic, I actually had. I actually treid to have a meaningful discussion, but I had also undid the edit on my last check up of the wikis for the night, and had the intention of going to sleep right after. While I shou ldn't have let it get involved, I had gotten at most four hours of sleep that week and was sick, so quite frankly, I was not in the mood to have a meaningful discussion, and I know that I shouldn't have let that get in the way of settling things in a better way. --BassJapas 17:31, February 4, 2011 (UTC)

You make a lot of edits, but the edits you make are not nessisarily edits that require a lot of thought. I am not saying you are not smart, but I am saying that you don't make the most savvy of edits, and if you approve upon that I would probably give you a neutral or even a support if the change is great. But only if you can prove to people consistently during that time you can keep your cool.-- C2 / CC 22:10, February 7, 2011 (UTC)

Given the low number of fully active admins and that two of the requests currently on this page will end within a day or two, I have decided to make my first request for administrator rights. I'm supposed to say some reasons people may think I would make a good admin, so the bulk of this text is about that.

I am pretty level-headed when I am online, and I am not usually very biased when making decisions. Although I am not always as active as I have been during the past couple of weeks, I am here relatively frequently and will be able to remain so during most of the school year (barring exam weeks and the like). I'll let my edits speak for themselves since I don't really know what to say about that. Some things I need to improve on include thinking before acting (since a few times, I've had to clean up after myself after failing to do so), and while I am involved in community decisions, I am not very involved in the community, per se. Most of you probably already know how you're going to vote if you have actually read this far, so that should be enough.

Pictogram voting support Support: With Xykeb leaving, my activity in steady decline since the fall, and most admins lacking in activity, I feel we need more admins, and you are the most deserving of the current rollbackers. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 21:26, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: This has been a long time coming in my book, recent stagnation and admin inactivity/departures or no. What took you so long? You've basically pointed out all positive traits I would have, yourself. Looking forward to having you on the team. --AuronKaizer! 21:57, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: I feel that out of everyone running right now (myself included) you are definitely the most qualified for admin. You're level-headed, unbiased, you make good edits, and you're on at least once every day. Here's to hoping you get your rights. -Minish Link 22:32, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: You make good edits, you're levelheaded, you're active, and we need more admins. -Isdrakthül 23:27, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: I personally see almost no reason you don't deserve this. As everyone else said, you're levelheaded, you make good edits and you're quite active. The community thing probably needs a few little touch-ups, but you seem fairly involved in most discussions. - McGillivray227 23:32, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: Yeah, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be ready. You know your stuff, you're nice, you should do fine. Oh, since I know that you're almost guaranteed to get this, I would like the honor to promote you (sorry about calling dibs a second time [and in a row...]; this should be my last dibs...). Good luck, Jedi. TheMask-Mimic 23:49, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: I basically told you to go for it. Your ready and deserveing. Plus your mature, so that is a bonus.-- C2 / CC 01:08, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: Granted, I haven't been around a lot, but overall I've seen great potential from you.—Triforce 14Triforce4 17:13, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: TM, he has been up for nomination for a whole day, has recieved the required votes(and then some), so thusly I will alow you until 22:00 to promote him, if you do not do so I will. Fair?-- C2 / CC 21:35, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: TM hasn't been on yet. Probably won't till about twenty, maybe more, from now. --BassJapas 21:47, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: I'm just saying that to comply with the standard and the rules, once a full day has passed a user who meets the required votes with no opposes just be promoted. I don't want to cheat Jedi out of it if somebody opposes at the last minute. That is how it has been and how we should do it to keep it fair. I might give him another 10 minutes or so, but not much longer.-- C2 / CC 21:51, February 9, 2011 (UTC)

McGillivray227 (talk · contributions · edit count)

Alright, well straight up, it's been awhile since my last request for adminship and I was off by basically a lack of votes last time. Hopefully the above wasn't some sort of tease thing going on. You know, I don't get enough people voting again... This might come off as a bit bland as I essentially had one person with an oppose and whole mess of supports last time, but I'll try to do as best as I can to see if I can explain, well, what I'm best at.

Anyways, the most problems I think I noticed in people was that it was a bit early at the time, which over six months later shouldn't be a problem anymore, and that I need more edits and critical input. As for the edits, I've been consistently editing and I've got, what looks like to me, quite a bit more edits since the last time (808 mainspace then to 947 mainspace now and 1707 total then and 1905 total now). As for the critical input, where admin or other user hadn't jumped in before I had in an argument or issue, I've generally been able to jump in and shut it down, or in worse case scenario, attempted to, but got both sides slightly off the issue slightly. Don't really know what else to say, so I guess I'll leave it there. - McGillivray227 23:41, February 5, 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting support Support: From working with you during these months. I've always thought of you as someone to look up too, and I feel like you deserve admin. (Not to mention the fact that for about three months I thought you were one). And although this is a completely different wiki and is much different in size, seeing you're work on VGW and knowing that you take initiative in fixing stuff and what not. I feel that you can handle admin at a wiki that's bigger in size than VGW. Personally, I think you're far past ready. --BassJapas 23:49, February 5, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: Haven't seen you around enough, even by our lowered standards these days. Still, you have faith (and are usually right) in the edits you make, and show many traits that are necessary to be a good administrator, one of the most prevalent ones being your level-headedness. Keep working on the activity level, and we'll see. --AuronKaizer! 23:53, February 5, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: I have basically the same thoughts as AK on this vote. I feel as though it has been a long time since you have been here frequently enough for admin rights to make much of a difference. Jedimasterlink (talk) 07:07, February 6, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: I'm actually a bit on the confused side. I mean, I've basically been editing quite consistently with very few large gaps (I'd say around 7 - 10 days). I can't really see how I'm not around enough. I'd really just like to know where the standard in activity lies because I personally feel that I've got enough activity going for me. - McGillivray227 07:43, February 6, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Looking at your contributions, it seems that while you tend to have a consistent activity level, but that you usually only make 3-5 edits a day. While I don't have much room to talk in this department (I feel as though I'm lecturing myself as much as you), compared to the active admins, that's not very much activity. My vote is a pretty high neutral though, and I don't think it would take all that much to change my mind. Jedimasterlink (talk) 07:54, February 6, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: This is a low support. I'd give you a neutral but neutrals are completely useless and it's good as not voting, so...The reason this is a low support is because you're not that active. However, I do see you around daily, you make great edits, and you're good with administrator rights. -Minish Link 15:42, February 6, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: Pretty sure I supported you last time. And you have gone anywhere but down. However, I want to point out to you that you don't nessisarily have a high amount of edits, but generally you are pretty solid. Also, if you do get admin, please be more active than you are now.-- C2 / CC 22:14, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: Alright, your activity has been a little down and I don't support this as much as I did last time. But that being said, as I stated on jedi's request, we are now in need of more admins. You have a level head and know how the wiki runs. While I can't seem to reach a decision on the other two, I think I have to support this particular one at this point in time. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 21:28, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: I don't really know. This is a high neutral, though, and I may even change it as I give it more thought. Right now, though, to just have a vote in place, I would have to say a high neutral. TheMask-Mimic 23:49, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support:So I've reviewed a large chunk of your more recent edits and think I have enough of a feel of your work here that I can make a call. You are a solid editor, make a variety of kinds of edits, understand how things work, seem level headed and able to think things through, and at one point (in the stuff I saw) you did step in to quell an argument. You had several accidental flubs on some edits you made, but caught all but one of them immediately afterward (but everybody does that). You've also been pretty responsive to people's questions and discussions (at least relative to your activity level), and I think that's very important in an admin. The main (pretty much only) thing people seem to think you should improve upon is your activity level, but in my opinion that isn't essential for an admin. It'd certainly be ideal if all the admins were very active, but you are active enough in my opinion, and we don't really benefit from not giving someone admin rights just because of lower-ish activity. Even if you don't use them a ton, you'll still benefit the wiki when you do, and I don't see anything bad happening if you have admin and aren’t using it much (if that happens on a large scale we're screwed of course but you get my point). Really we’re not so much trying to assign you a status relative to anyone else/your activity, we’re giving you some authority and fancier buttons to click, and if we can trust you to use those well then I feel you should have them. Also, I looked and since Jan 1st, you've had over twice the activity of two of our b-'crats (no offense intended to them, the point I’m trying to make is to de-emphasize edit rate relative to adminship). Couple things though; I don’t remember being blown away by any particular action of yours in an "only an admin (or admin worthy editor) could get something like that done" sort of way; things like definitively finishing an issue, clearing up controversy, acting on a consensus that arose, or going the extra mile to make it happen type stuff. Also there were one or two times that make me suspect-ish that you weren’t looking hard enough for the reasons behind an edit before changing it. For that last reason, I’d encourage you *everyone really*, to be careful with things along the lines of IP edits (such as those that add new information but not in a grammatically correct way. I don't remember seeing you do anything wrong with this particular thing, it's an example). So I guess this isn't an extremely high support for various reasons, but it's still a definite support. All the issues I just mentioned happen to everyone though. <digress> But I'm nit picking/text walling you. Just be mindful of making hasty edits, and you should be fine.--FierceDeku 23:38, February 15, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support:Without a doubt. You have excellent template skills, are dedicated editor, probably the most unbiased person I've seen for many userpages around, you know when something is serious and when something is not that big of a deal, and are not prone to making a lot of goof-up edits that you have to fix like a good amount of people have a history of(*coughcough*me*cough*) and as for your activity level, that's not as much of an issue, as I know for a fact that you are online and ready to perform admin duties nearly every day. In short, you pass. Oh and one more thing, cool beans on the finishing what you started, I picked up on that when reading your contributions.--RedeadhunterRedeadContributions Edits 00:59, February 16, 2011 (UTC)

Sir Real (rollback)

The result of the discussion was: Pictogram voting support Support


I've noticed that he has made a lot of edits, over half of them mainspace. Also, he knows what he's doing, makes more edits than most users (big plus right there), and I feel like he would not abuse Rollback. I can't really think of any negatives other than that he does not seem that involved in the community (but I could be wrong here). He's been active, edits a lot and consistently, and responds well to constructive criticism. Also, he has helped undo vandalism. TheMask-Mimic 00:08, March 18, 2011 (UTC)

Wow. Thanks! I was going to request rollback rights eventually, but I felt that I should make sure that I had over 400 useful edits, as I recalled having a lot of my old edits undone. I didn't think I should count the edits I had made that were not considered beneficial to the wiki towards my total edit count. But if other people think I'm ready...I guess I am. Still, to be fair, I should probably include this:

Reasons I should not be promoted (I seem to recall this being in a few previous requests)
  • I often speak without thinking first, and as such, I can be a bit of a prick at times. Just ask Joe.
  • I will occasionally make large, questionable edits without consulting other users for their input. While I am getting better at this, well, Telescope Machete.
  • My edits are often based on fuzzy memories, rather than on serious research.
  • My personal life can easily get in the way of my activity.

There you have it. Again, thank you. ~~Sir Real

Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: Listing your flaws is a good thing. However, too many of them are somewhat serious risk factors in my opinion, and could become real problems if not dealt with (obviously, this isn't a really big deal as this is only rollback rights). You've made a few errant calls regarding reverted edits, and while I can't really hold that against you to a large degree, due to our suckiness at writing down rules and guidelines, some of them you still should have been able to pick up on by doing some research and paying attention to the edits of others. Also, you might do with taking things a little less seriously than you seem to do. --AuronKaizer! 00:26, March 19, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: Some of your flaws carry some risk, but not enough to deny you the Rollback function, methinks. From what I have seen, you have made noticeable improvement over the last several weeks, and you are involved and reliable enough to deserve this. I'm not saying there isn't plenty of room for improvement, of course, but we all have some room for that. Jedimasterlink (talk) 17:36, March 19, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Since I put up his request (and he expanded it), that counts as another vote, right? So that would make him at +4, which is the required amount. And, since it's been over a day, can't he now be promoted? If you respond within the next ten minutes or so (mostly talking about AK right now because he's on), then I can do it; if not, feel free to do it. TheMask-Mimic 03:25, March 20, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: This went between neutral and support in my head for a while before I settled on this. Though you still have things to learn, so does everybody. You are a solid editor, you are active, involved, you talk to people, take initiative, acknowledge your flaws, and try to improve yourself. What gave me pause is you jumping to conclusions. Relating to that, there's something you need to know about rollbacking: When you rollback something, it will be removed from the recent changes list entirely (both the original edit(s) and you're rolling back of them will not appear there), so no one will be able to check up on it. Mostly rollback is for vandalism, but remember if you see something you're not absolutely 100% sure about, that you should not roll it back, or at least should ask on the talk page for confirmation that it did indeed not belong. Just be aware of that mechanic (I'd never heard that when I first got rollback XD). Research or ask about things if you're not sure; you won't be able to see the stars if you're looking through a telescope with a machete in it ;p . However, I think that you are aware of this issue enough now that you can be trusted not to roll things back out of sight unless you have confirmed them concretely, which is why I'm comfortable giving a support.--FierceDeku 06:19, March 20, 2011 (UTC)

Hey everybody, again...You're probably familiar with the whole 'Minish wants admin' thing by now, but Here it Goes Again. It's been another few months and the only period of inactivity I had I noted on my userpage, so I don't think that can be held against me; I specifically said I was busy with other things and anther project. Now that I'm relatively active again and making daily contributions as well as being involved in almost all of the current forums I think I'm ready for this now. As usual, I'll list my 'big contributions', pros, and cons.

Big Contributions:

Pros:

  • I'm generally unbiased
  • I can keep a cool head, which I think I've showed in my last RfA and several other occasions
  • I think I'm a good editor
  • I've been more involved with the community lately
  • I definitely wouldn't abuse the rights

Cons:

  • Occasionally I screw up and get mad at people but this is becoming increasingly more rare; it should also be noted most of these incidents were off-wiki
  • I occasionally go inactive, but as I mentioned before, the last time this happened I noted it on my userpage beforehand
  • I can be biased, though not extremely often
  • Sometimes I'm a little hasty

So there you have it. Say what you will and all that and I appreciate any votes. Thanks everybody for your time. -Minish Link 19:32, April 10, 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting support Support: It's the last thing I'll be able to do here. I really don't care about the imminent cries of bias. You deserve this. You want this. I know you'll make a good admin.

As for edits, attitude, etc., that's only gotten better since you've last requested. I believe you deserve admin this time. - McGillivray227 23:26, April 10, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: Yeah, it's deffinately time. I just labored through the last two months of your edits, and believe you have stepped it up. Good work, you've earned it.-- C2 / CC 02:28, April 11, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: My apologies for earlier, it was petty, and just going on how you shouldn't leave people things to see for when they come home. Now, aside from that, if you accept that people have their opinions on how they feel about something, and when it's a firm opinion, and it's not entirely necessary to comment on said opinions (pastebin bit), I'm willing to look past it and just agree with the rest that you are ready and have have earned this. --BassJapas 14:08, April 11, 2011 (UTC)

Met the required time and votes, however an oppose was made that lenghtened the duration of the vote. All votes below this are considered void.

Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: Okay, sorry to have to do this to you, Minish, but I don't feel comfortable yet with you having admin. The times when you've "lost it" (for lack of a better term) really makes me uneasy. I realize that it has been a while since this last happened (which made me not oppose right away), but it's still concerning to me. Now, it's possible that I'll change this to a neutral, but I'm not sure. If I keep the oppose and the two weeks pass, however, then you would get admin. It seems that most of the community believes that you're ready (which makes me less uneasy), so we'll see what happens. TheMask-Mimic 21:19, April 11, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: TM, how long ago was it when he lost control and maybe himself look like that. I can understand your vote, but dude.... waiting 10 minutes before a guy was about to be made admin, and your oppose was about something he had done quite awhile ago, that just seems a bit... low. I mean no offense, I simply am calling out what I percieve as a political move.-- C2 / CC 17:31, April 12, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: TM, upon further inspection done by CC and myself, your oppose came two hours after the 24-hour period of me having 7 straight supports. At that point you techncially should have promoted me since, as CC said, I'd have been a valid admin for two hours, but you opposed...I'm not sure if you were aware the 24h period was up, but there you go. -Minish Link 18:08, April 12, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment:While this has been brought up I'd like to suggest increasing that time frame. A day seems a little short to me. When Jedi was promoted it was done so quickly half the community didn't even no he had been running. Making an admin is a big think I should think it'd take at least three days or a week before the promotion can be done. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Oni Dark Link (talkcontribs)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: I truly feel that you've earned this. However, you should still consider what TM said and try not to let those incidents happen again. Also, being an admin requires the ability to respect others' opinions, which is a little flaw I'm sure has already been pointed out... Everything else is great though. Keep on improving! --DekuStick Master 21:42, April 11, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: I see no problem with you becoming an admin. Go for it. Sir Real (talk) 21:50, April 11, 2011 (UTC)
