From Beyond The Stars

I'm retiring. I don't use it anyway and it's not even something to be proud of anymore. Nobody cares if you're rollback. Unless you are an admin (or choose to act like one and get away with it) then your opinion isn't valid, apparently. I'd rather just be plain old Stars, thanks. I don't need titles. -Stars talk Starssprite.gif 16:01, April 3, 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: If you want a demotion I really don't know why there should be a vote because it should just happen but at the same time I don't see why you keeping your rollback privileges would be any issue. If this is what you want then I only ask that I get your all powerful rollback ring (or was it a vest? I think the vest was for admins though). Apparently they stopped making them before I received rollback. And if I am the pompous arrogant rollback of whom you speak then I am unworthy to have the ring. --Birdman5589 (talk) 16:26, April 3, 2011 (UTC

Pictogram voting comment Comment: Trolling people isn't exactly going to put you on the fast track to getting one yourself... -Isdrakthül 17:38, April 3, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: If you really want to be demoted, I don't see why anyone should stop you, but it seems like the purpose of this is to make a point that could be made more effectively (in that it would be more likely to be addressed) by just saying it. Also, my personal opinion on the not naming names thing is that you should let others know if there are issues with their behaviour; they won't be able to correct their faults if they don't know about them. -Isdrakthül 17:14, April 3, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: We don't need to vote on a requested demotion. I would think this over before you do something you'll regret, and then just tell an admin who can demote you. I don't really see the point though. Even people who haven't been here in years keep rollback as an easy way of keeping track of things should they ever return. So if you're just doing this to make a point, there are probably better ways to go about it. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 18:24, April 3, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Joe found a way to word what I was thinking. However, I think that you're going through a hard time right now and that you need some time alone and with Minish. So, don't ask for your rights removed but take a break and do fun things (with Minish, too). And remember that your views on things determines how bad or good they end up being.

Pictogram voting comment Comment:Stars, you're a great user. You say people don't care if you're rollback; in reality, it's far from it. Rollback is one of the most useful and important tools a user can posses, and it's granted to users who are trusted in the community, and cared about. The fact that you have rollback shows that people do care about you! You're a valuable asset here, and I'm sure everyone would miss you if you left. Anyway, don't let Xd1358 get to you. He doesn't know what he's talking about, and he certainly doesn't realise how great you are. User:Sactage (Talk)
Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: Stars, rollback isn't really just about whether your opinion is valid or being proud of it. It's for using it for the good of the wiki. Who knows, you might have to use it at a later time, even if you aren't using it now. I think you should just keep it in case it is ever needed. --DekuStick Master 23:38, April 9, 2011 (UTC)

Jäzzi (administrator)

Jäzzi (talk · contributions · edit count)

The result of the discussion was: Pictogram voting oppose Oppose


Well, I've come around to the time where I'm requesting administrator rights again. After the past two requests, which were bunked, I feel I've grown a lot in the time that I've been editing. It's been a year, since I joined the wiki, and since my block for overreacting ended. I know I have been somewhat inactive lately, but I always check Zeldapedia, and I always have my tab for the Recent Changes open so that I can check to see if there has been any vandalism, and if there has, I rollback it.

As with my previous requests, I'll list my good and bad points, and I'll let my contributions speak for themselves.

My good points

  • I've really calmed my head, if there is something that upsets me, I just continue to edit or just continue to hold a civil conversation with that user.
  • I've helped out new users learn the ropes.
  • I've matured a lot since I first joined, and since I first requested admin.
  • I'm on pretty much all the time, I'm on when I have computer time on school, and I'm on the whole time I'm at home (as I said, I may not edit, but I always have the tab open). I also check up on all the wikis I edit at when I wake up in the morning. The only time I'm really off of the wiki, is during school when I don't have computer time.
  • Although I have had altercations in the past couple of months, I've held my cool pretty well.
  • Although I have my friends on the wiki, I am unbiased towards them, if they do something wrong, I would block them for what they did.
  • I take initiative. As you've seen with my illegal professional forum bumping, and the Actually fully finishing things forum, I am a bit impatient, but I don't let that majorly affect something. The only time I really let that impatience come through is when something is sitting there for months without being finished, which is why I created that forum.
  • I'm good with .css and MediaWiki pages.

My bad points

  • I'm not on all that much.
  • I do still throw IRC hissy-fits when I'm upset. I don't randomly ban people for any old reason, and I don't blow up and ban myself.
  • I can still have my immature moments, like shown here, but everyone knows that I'm joking at those moments.
  • I still have a little bit of growing up to do, not a lot, but I still have some.


Nine blocks have been under my word. Four of those blocks were made after I had to contact a current admin. Five of those blocks were made by VSTF when there were no admins. Since this happens a bit, I'd be able to catch the vandalism, block the user, delete the pages that need deleting, and delete the user page and talk page. I know how to properly move pages to avoid the redirect (if one isn't going to be made, of course), I know how to properly move images, and the proper boxes that need to be ticked for a block. The only problem I see that I've come across on other wikis, is that I occasionally have trouble figuring out the length of a block, but I figure if I just follow what the block logs have said for similar issues, and just follow suit, I believe it won't be much of a problem. I'm also quite knowledgeable in MediaWiki pages, as you've seen with my Monobook theme. If I were an admin, adding the coding to the MediaWiki:Monobook.css page would be much easier. And fixing the mistakes would be much easier, but of course, there shouldn't have been mistakes, but there are mistakes in everything.

I'd also like to mention, that when I go inactive, or what I classify as inactive, I am still editing on wikia, so any message to my talk page anywhere notifies me, and I'm able to get to it even if I'm not what I call active on the wiki. Along with that, when I do actually go inactive for a period of time, I make sure it is noted on my userpage so that users will know that I'm not able to answer any messages I leave them. That being said, I'd like you to consider this as well.

I hope you consider my request, and that you've noticed a change in me as well, and if you feel the need to oppose, please do so, but I hope you take these two weeks that the request is open to watch me and how I behave, and that you'll consider your vote again. Thank you. --Jäzzi (talk)

Pictogram voting support Support: You've grown a lot as a contributor (and person, naturally), and I think you've made enough of an effort to dispel your, how shall we say, "chequered past". Admin team could use an initiative-taking person such as yourself. So the question you should ask yourself is "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do you? --AuronKaizer! 16:56, May 27, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Apart from perhaps installing a spellchecker (:P) Jazzi is knowledgeable and fair. On the subject of blocks - following previous blocks is fine, it's normally an arbitrary length anyway (2 weeks is probably plenty for an IP, for example, as they're not likely to be back). RandomTime 17:17, May 27, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: I really don't want any hard feelings between us to begin with, but I've got to be unbiased and show my opinion here anyway. I know this probably sounds stupid and vague but something tells me you're just not quite ready yet. You're a really really great editor but I think personally that before getting these rights you need to be sure you're completely emotionally stable, and to be honest I'm not quite sure you are just yet. Your negative points are very very minor but they do appear occasionally. As mentioned before you're a great editor and I think that eventually you'll get this but in my opinion it's still a little too soon. -Minish Link 19:38, May 27, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: There wouldn't be any hard feelings, because I know if you need to oppose, you have a good reason for that oppose. And although I have had a rougher time lately, I understand why you'd think I'm not as emotionally stable, and I know you want to make sure that I have a good head for admin rights. And I've switched schools so I'm more emotionally stable than before, but I do have my moments, so I can understand completely. I also hope, that in these next two weeks, you'll see that I am more emotionally stable than I previously was, and that your vote might change into a neutral. I appreciate your vote for what it is. And I understand if you keep it at an oppose, because like we've said neutrals are the voting systems way of saying "I don't give a who". --Jäzzi (talk) 21:58, May 27, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: Add "takes initiative" to one of your strong points. Seriously, that whole forum-rebooting thing? Your idea. Actually doing something to help new users learn the ropes more easily? Your idea. And at least on the wiki, you've pretty much achieved the maturity you need to be trusted with admin rights, as far as I'm concerned. You admit you still have some more growing to do still, and while that's certainly true, being able to admit it is a strength in and of itself. Jedimasterlink (talk) 22:02, May 27, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: And the monobook skin. No idea how I forgot that. Jedimasterlink (talk) 22:06, May 27, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting oppose Oppose: While I agree that you have improved, I also agree with Minish. I'm not entirely confidant that you've stabilized emotionally and are ready for the community-based aspects of the job. I'd say to give it a while and prove that you can go without altercations for sustained periods of time. -Isdrakthül 22:15, May 27, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Well as I said in my comment on Minish's vote, I hope that you see in these two weeks that I have improved. And although the altercation happened, I did not do anything to intend for it to happen, and when I commented on it, I was not expecting anything like what happened to happen. And the two of us involved in the altercation are okay with each other now. But if you are referencing to the recent "altercation", which can hardly be called an altercation, since it was a choice I had to make as Sabrina, not as Jazzi/Jäzzi, and the choice was made from the heart and if you'd like to hear my reasoning on that "altercation", (if this is indeed what you're talking about) you can hop onto the IRC and I can explain the whole thing to you. I'd also like to point out, that the altercation I did have, I remained cool the whole time, until I broke down later that night, but I'd also like to point out that nights are very bad for me, which is why I don't edit often late at night anymore, because I know what triggers me and makes me unable to control my emotions. And, if I'm able to mention, that if you are talking about the "altercation" I had this week, the only reason I was "emotionally unstable" if you can put it that way, is because I was letting go of someone who I had been close to for ten months, and if you had been in that position, I'm pretty sure you'd be upset. But as I said, I hope you consider this in these next two weeks, and maybe you'll change your vote to a neutral. --Jäzzi (talk) 22:32, May 27, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: You honestly think that I would base my vote upon whether or not you broke up with your boyfriend? The key thing here is the two weeks bit. -Isdrakthül 22:39, May 27, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: I knew you wouldn't base it upon that, I just wanted to make sure that you didn't think it was an altercation or that I was unstable over it. But yeah, I understand where you're coming at, but no, I didn't think you would base it on that, just wanted to make sure you didn't mean that minor altercation. --Jäzzi (talk) 22:43, May 27, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Due to recent emotional issues, I do not feel fit enough for my request to continue running, as one of my key points was that I am more emotionally stable, but that is untrue as my emotional state has been up and down the past few days, and most likely won't be back to normal for a bit. --Jäzzi (talk) 23:10, June 1, 2011 (UTC)

Minish Link (bureaucrat)

Minish Link (talk · contributions · edit count)

The result of the discussion was: Pictogram voting oppose Oppose


The admin requests of others always remind me of these kinds of things and I'd forgotten that I wanted to try to run for this. As noted on Zeldapedia talk:Administrators, some don't think we need a sixth 'crat; however, since some of the current 'crats are inactive and I myself am an active administrator, I think myself a valid candidate for this. I'm an active administrator and though some days I don't edit I do check the site very frequently. As for adminly stuff, I think I've proven my trustworthiness and capability of being unbiased when I blocked my own girlfriend (at the time). Anywho, just thought I'd give this a go since we're low on active 'crats and I'd like the position. EDIT: Additionally, see Jazzi's point below; other crats have different timezones and I'm on quite often. Thanks for your time! —Minish Link(c·ec·db)

Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: Capitalized the "B" in bureaucrat. Unrelatedly, I don't see the need for another bureaucrat, considering the insurmountable workload they have these days (read: none). Also, too soon. --AuronKaizer! 00:12, May 28, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: I knew some people would say that! —Minish Link(c·ec·db)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: I have no opinion about this. It would neither harm nor benefit the wiki. -Isdrakthül 00:18, May 28, 2011 (UTC)

:Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: I would oppose, but there's no point to oppose because opposes are pointless in cases like this. But there's no point to grant 'Crat rights either. Basically, a wiki only needs one 'Crat, and that's to grant admin. There's no additional buttons to 'Crat rights. Pretty much, Zeldapedia only needs two 'Crats at the most, two is stretching it, but we do have that whole timezone issue. --Jäzzi (talk)

Pictogram voting support Support: I'm going to quote some of my Skype logs with Minish for this vote, I have full permission to do so, these logs are not altered in anyway, except for one line because it contains some profanity.
[12:39:53 PM] Sabrina: Like, now that i know what all these rgihts do
[12:40:01 PM] Sabrina: I really have no clue why we had six crats
[12:40:15 PM] Sabrina: actually, coming to think about it, a third one really would be beneficial
[12:40:25 PM] Sabrina: because there's the timezone issue
[12:40:33 PM] Minish Kaizer: You think so?
[12:40:42 PM] Sabrina: And then the issue of TM having weird edit frames
I know I said in my Pictogram voting neutral Neutral vote, that another 'crat is not needed, because 'crat rights do nothing but promoting users to admin, but if you think about it, another 'crat would be beneficial to the wiki. Since we have AK's timezone and him being, well, in a timezone that is drastically different from most user's. And TM's weird edit frames, because although TM, Minish and I are all in the same timezone, TM has very weird edit frames. So basically, another 'crat would be benficial because he's on pretty much everyday, and he knows his stuff. He just needs to make sure he remembers to delete the user and talk pages. --Jäzzi (talk) 16:55, May 28, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: I really don't see why we would need another bureaucrat. The only difference between them and admins is managing user rights, which is a necessary power only on very rare occasions. If anything, we could probably do just fine with only one. Jedimasterlink (talk) 21:01, May 28, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Did you read the Skype logs posted above? I don't mean to push the votes in a certain direction but there is a point to this seeing as different 'crats on on at different timezones and that stuff. -Minish Link 21:15, May 28, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Does it matter? Promotions occur rarely and it isn't urgent that they happen immediately. -Isdrakthül 21:21, May 28, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Yes, Minish, I did read it. And what Drakky said. The timezones thing matters for admin rights, but it is insignificant for b'crat rights since promotions don't need to happen immediately, and as I said, we don't promote people very often. Jedimasterlink (talk) 21:31, May 28, 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: Low neutral. A big reason this is not a support is that having another b-crat at the moment will do very little, for the reasons people have already said. As long as you have a request up I do want to say this; whether you are a b-crat or regular admin, make sure it doesn't go to your head. I say this for a couple reasons: A; you're already going for b-crat very shortly after becoming an admin (there's no especially objective reason you shouldn't, but I do feel it's a bit fast), B; since you became an admin, I remember kind of a lot of mistakes that you made that could have been avoided with just a little bit more thoroughness/research. They were honest mistakes like we all make every so often, but I do worry that sometimes you get overconfident and don't take the time to be certain that your post is correct before hitting publish. Also, I can't personally vouch for the unbiased thing; it's not that I remember you being biased or anything, it's just that opportunities to prove that someone is unbiased are so rare. I'm not counting the Stars thing because (correct me if I'm misremembering) she wanted to be banned. Again, a big part of this is that having one more b-crat would have so little an effect at the moment.--FierceDeku 05:29, June 3, 2011 (UTC)

Minish Link (talk · contributions · edit count)

The result of the discussion was: Pictogram voting oppose Oppose


Uh, so this is probably completely coming out of nowhere, but I figure I'll request this because our only other active 'crat as of now is AK. And yeah, we really don't get promotion requests all that often (read: none in ages), but I also sort of figure I'm, uh, worthy of this promotion, so to speak, seeing as I've been a semi-active, good-decision-making, not-so-much-an-idiot administrator for almost a year. So that about sums it up. -Minish Link 01:53, May 13, 2012 (UTC)

Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: I don't know, you could work it, but as I said, I don't know. This is really close to a support, like, one notch away from one. I just don't necessarily see the need for it. As you said, we don't get promotion requests anymore. Jazzi 01:56, May 13, 2012 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: I have no reason to oppose this aside from what Jazzi already said, though I do not see that as a necessary detriment. Oh, and there's also the sneaking suspicion that this is all an elaborate attempt by Hero of Crime to regain his suspicion, using a complex alias wholly different from his true personality. But you know as well as I do, McHero the Crime Dork, that your plan is folly, and you'll find yourself in shoes of cement long before you've even entered the final stages of your plan. I wouldn't support it if I wasn't 100% certain you pose no threat to anyone besides the neighbours you keep up at night with all your manic-depressive crying. Pitiful. --AuronKaizer! 02:01, May 13, 2012 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral Neutral: I'm upgrading to a neutral for the "just in case" mentality. Not going to do a support as I still don't think it is entirely necessary but it shouldn't be opposed for that reason. I have no doubt in your ability but I just don't see any reason why another user with Bureaucrat is needed. That is why I oppose. I just don't see a point in it at the moment. Since I have no problems with the merits for this promotion I would be willing to change this vote to neutral if I was convinced that there is some good functional reasons behind this promotion. --Birdman5589 (talk) 02:08, May 13, 2012 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Honestly, I find that there is no reason to oppose. Yes, there's no reason for another bureaucrat at the moment. And as I told Minish in the Zeldapedia skype group, wait a while and for a more active community. But there honestly is no reason to oppose. Yes, neutrals are completely useless, which is why I felt really bad for voting neutral, but I couldn't vote oppose when I was so close to a support. Yes, Minish has had some bad behavior in the past, so have I, we grow out of it. I don't want to pull age into this, but we're young, we're emotional, we're stupid. But there honestly seems like there's no reason to oppose. It's been almost a year since the incident, and you know exactly which one I'm talking about, has happened. If you're basing off of that, I have nothing to say but to let the horse die. Jazzi 02:16, May 13, 2012 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Like I stated earlier I have no problems with Minish's merits. I am opposing strictly for the reason of not seeing a need for another Bureaucrat. If I felt the community needed another Bureaucrat I would support in a heartbeat. --Birdman5589 (talk) 02:26, May 13, 2012 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: Fair enough. I still stand by my feeling that the oppose wasn't needed. But everyone has the right to vote the way they want. Jazzi 02:29, May 13, 2012 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: There may not be a need at the moment, but one never knows what could happen. Someone could unexpectedly go inactive for long periods of time, or we may get a sudden influx of promotion requests (and in the past, we have tended to see more new users during summertime). Having two active 'crats just in case seems like a good idea to me, and you're definitely qualified. Jedimasterlink (talk) 03:18, May 13, 2012 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Support: AK isn't really the kind of person to disappear entirely, but there definitely have been times where he's been more or less inactive — admittedly rare, but it's happened. Having said that, I think that it's always a good idea to have more than one bureaucrat, as per the "just in case" mentality. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 05:33, May 13, 2012 (UTC)

Okay so hi guys you all know the drill I want bureaucrat etc. Actually, in all seriousness what spurred this is that as of now it'd be convenient to promote Green Rupee immediately, but I, uh, can't do that. Anyway, last time I got three supports and two neutrals but it didn't pass purely because there weren't enough supports even though there weren't even that many active users around then, so, uh, yeah, I'm doing this again and stuff. ~Minish (talk) 05:15, August 13, 2012 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment Comment: Technically, it seems we already have more than two 'crats. Joe has been semi-active for a while, and TM (The Midna for those of you who haven't been here for too long) apparently lurks here often enough to have been the first one to get around to promoting Green Rupee. Even so, having two fully active 'crats seems appropriate to me. Jedimasterlink (talk) 03:53, August 16, 2012 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment:Looks like we all sort of forgot about this. Since we don't have specific guidelines for giving people 'crat rights, I'd just go by the admin guidelines and say that Minish has the vote total required to be promoted (8 supports and 1 oppose, for a total of +7). Obviously, we're well past the deadline for archiving this, so if a bureaucrat could wrap this up, that would be great. Jedimasterlink (talk) 20:27, October 17, 2012 (UTC)

Knows what he's doing and is around a lot more than I am as of late. Just recently we've had whole floods of users doing all kinds of things they shouldn't be including vandalism and just straight-up careless rulebreaking, and I think we need another admin around -- and because he's been an active editor and has dealt with most of the recent issues, I'm nominating him. He has a level head and clear editing skill and has been around for a good while now, and he more than fits the requirements.

Pictogram voting comment Comment: Why does every active user need to be promoted to an admin? Having another admin will make the active users quite top heavy. I only saw 14 blocks issued in the month of February. I wouldn't call that a flood of vandalism. Now if the site was reliving the Great Narwhal Attack from the times of out ancestors then maybe I could see where admin rights for another user would be useful. But what does my opinion matter? I'm just an inactive user that can't vote. But I figured I would at least voice my opinion. --Birdman5589 (talk) 04:07, March 4, 2013 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment Comment: It's not so much a matter of people needing blocking as it is just general stuff that needs to be deleted, or editing a page that's admin-only, or otherwise doing something that requires admin powers. I don't know if this comes across in the actual wiki, but there's been a fair amount of out-of-wiki pestering of admins (mostly Minish, but sometimes AK) to get on the wiki and do something about issues that need solving. My thought on the matter is that if we had an admin that actually frequented the site of his or her own volition things would be a lot smoother. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 12:33, March 4, 2013 (UTC)

With AK's official departure and Minish being inactive since before the beginning of this year, the wiki is currently left with zero active bureaucrats. After giving it a little thought, I decided to request this position in the event that someone does earn a promotion at some point so that if this wiki ever recovers even a little bit, then we won't have to go through Wikia to make stuff happen. I realize that I haven't exactly been the most active user around as of late (mostly because this has been the busiest, most stressful semester for academics so far), but I do at least patrol the recent changes on a regular basis, I have no plans to cut all ties from this site, and I am the only remaining admin without 'crat capabilities.

Right now we have only one active admin, JML. Having a second admin would mean that JML doesn't have to rename and delete everything by himself.

Ceiling Master (rollback)

The result of the discussion was: Pictogram voting support Support


While I understand that activity here has been slow as of late, Hyrule Warriors has brought about some unforeseen (for me, at least) buzz. I'd like to be able to use rollback, simply because there isn't a huge number of active contributors here anymore (Admin and not) and the 2015 Zelda game will be here before we know it, with new users trying to "help" and vandals abound. If no one thinks that we need another rollbacker, so be it; I won't take offense. But I do think my editing prowess has grown significantly since my hiatus to work on the Xenoblade Wiki, and I'd like to think I know what I'm doing. Zeldapedians, I await your judgment. —Ceiling Master 23:00, October 25, 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting support Support I always find you not only correcting my mistakes, but those of tons of new editors as well. I'd safely say you're one of our best contributors right now, although that doesn't really mean much at the time considering you're one of the only contributors.

Pictogram voting support Support: IMO a wiki can never have too many (competent) rollbackers, since the idea is to kill vandalism as quickly as possible, which requires actually having at least one rollbacker logged in. While the need for more rollbackers is more obvious on a more active wiki, having only a handful of active contributors means a lower chance of having one logged in when a vandal shows up.

I realize that I might not seem like much compared to recently promoted Ceiling Master, and I was going to wait a little while longer to apply. However, a fairly recent encounter with two very persistent vandals made me realize that rollback would be very helpful in situations like those. It took me a bit longer than most users to fully learn all the rules and policies of the wiki, but after 10 months of editing here I'd safely say I pretty much know what I'm doing at this point. I hope I've proved that I wouldn't abuse rollback, although I won't be offended if you oppose. HH Tektite (The Legend of Zelda) 04:56, December 7, 2014 (UTC)

Well, I've finally decided to try for administrator. My main reasons are pretty simple: there's some administrator work to be done, and JML is the only semi-active admin — and he hasn't edited in over a month. Also, I have plenty of admin experience from being a bureaucrat on the Xenoblade Wiki. With new Zelda games coming out, there will probably be an influx of activity, and piling up a bunch of admin work on JML's talk page isn't getting anything done. It would be extremely helpful to have another active admin, and I think I can handle the position. —Ceiling Master 18:08, June 16, 2015 (UTC)

Pictogram voting support Support: Definitely. The job needs to go to someone, I've even considered finally stepping up myself but my passions just aren't in it anymore.

On my user page I once had a trivia section. In that trivia section it said I never intended to request admin rights. That was true. I never particularly wanted the responsibility and didn't like the political arguing that it entailed. But the wiki was a very different place back then than it is now. And the truth of the matter is we need more admins, and even more than that we need bureaucrats. Not a single one of the members in out active bureaucrats gallery has made an edit this year from what I can see. Ceiling Master is the only person on the wiki with any extra abilities and he can't be on the wiki constantly. Simply put we need people to move images, protect pages and combat vandals and we just don't have it. This wiki is quite devoid of active users but there are still things that need to be done.

So moving away from why the wiki needs more people with authority and towards why I'm qualified for the job. I am the most longest active user on the wiki. I've been here for over seven years and in that time I've accumulated one of the highest edit counts on the wiki. I've had a pretty spotless behaviour record and know the format of the wiki very well. That is to say how pages are meant to be laid out. I'm not super active, I don't claim to be but I am at least present. That will likely not change if I'm granted admin rights. I don't spend an awful lot of time editing but I do spend time watching. When I first joined I made my account automatically watch every page I've edited, which means a lot of emails to shift through but it also means I'm somewhat aware of any major event that happens on the wiki. If a vandal strikes I can be here and if someone steps up an needs promoting I can be there be too. So that's all I really have to say. Cast an opinion one way or another and let's see this wiki persist beyond this era of inactivity. Oni Dark Link 15:38, May 2, 2016 (UTC)

One bureaucrat has never been enough to handle Zeldapedia. On Oni's advice, I've decided to put myself up for this promotion simply because having another bureaucrat will ensure that everything on the Wiki is taken care of (one of us can't be online all the time). I haven't been extremely active, but I'm not exactly going anywhere (especially with Zelda Wii U getting information soon), and I've been a bureaucrat on another Wiki for over a year now, so I know how things are done.
