Now I was wondering...with some of these old discussions that haven't been archived or done anything yet, such as in the case of Aeronflux...we need to archive it now, but since said user has not appeared here for quite some time, should we really promote them? Perhaps we need to instate some rules about the user having to be an active editor at time of vote/promotion? What ya fink?

What do you care? You see us as you want to see us... in the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That's the way we saw each other at seven o'clock this morning. We were brainwashed."

I was just thinking...in order to get only the topmost of top editors as administrators, maybe people should have already had a successful request for rollback rights first; sort of like a test/trial run or a proof of dedication or something like that. We need people we can trust. Anyone think this could be something?

I agree with that.

Just my two rupees. I know my opinion doesn't really matter. But that is about the same process that we are now implementing at Zelda Wiki.org. So I'd say go for it.—Matt (talk) 08:55, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Heh, the issue had never come up before. Anyway, it makes sense that one should have to be an established user to be able to vote. If not, the abuse issue might come up again. The one making the request could easily be asking his pals or something to vote for him. This is just a hypothesis though.

Hey, I was thinking, as of right now the rules state that the a candidate can be promoted immediately if they get all the required votes without any oppose votes. Just to be fair to everyone and to give more people a chance to vote, what if we required a request to be up for at least a day before promoting? I know as of now, the votes go pretty quickly and not everyone who wants to vote gets to. Thoughts?

Sounds like a good idea to me. A lot of the recent rollback promotions happened within a few hours of the request, and I know Ccbermanzzpedia wanted to vote for Baltro.

i did, but! baltro ended up missing mine b/c this was not followed through with. although i can hardly blame anyone b/c it was such along time in between nominations, and it appears this wasnt added to the rules.-- C2 / CC 18:32, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm going to add it in now unless someone clearly opposes.—Triforce 14Triforce4 19:47, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I've been thinking about this...it's only been about a month since Baltro got Rollback rights, so technically he should have another 2 weeks to go. However, he's got a bunch of edits (most of them mainspace) and he's been really helpful, so I'd like to propose that we let him go for admin early. It doesn't have to be now (2 weeks seems like a bit of a stretch), but I think he deserves them soon.

Good thing I check the recent changes. I wouldn't want to be promoted without even realizing I was nominated. :P

I don't know if we will get more contributors when Breath of the Wild comes out, but I think it's about time we update the rules and requirements to reflect the activity of the wiki. First, the amount of votes required to pass is currently too high. We should write down somewhere that if the vote is unanimous, despite not receiving the required amount of votes, an applicant will still pass. Also, we could change the requirements to something like +2 or +3 for rollback and +3 or +4 for admin, but it isn't super necessary with the aforementioned rule.

Second, the edit requirements could be lessened a bit. Although, I currently don't have a good idea of what the new requirements would be. What should probably happen is a small paragraph about how a user can be nominated by admins even if they don't meet the edit requirements.

I just thought I'd bring this up seeing as how we don't really have active rollbackers.

Albert this is important. I don't want you to ever hate anyone. Something occurred to me. Feelings of love and feelings of hate both start out as caring about someone. It's sad, but I think that sometimes when those feelings aren't returned, those feelings of love change into hate. If something like that ever happen, I want you to think back to our childhood. Back to a time when we could only love openly and honestly no matter how often we got hurt. I want you to go on living Albert. Love people openly without being scared of getting hurt. I truly was lucky to have known you. - Franz d'Epinay. Forever in your heart."

Yeah, I agree. We've bent the rules based on how little activity we've had, and in general, I think a unanimous vote certainly says something about the quality of the applicant.

I changed almost everything I suggested except the vote and edit requirements. I still don't know if we need to change those. Anyways, the most important part is done.

Out of curiosity (and I apologize in advance if my message is off-topic or not relevant to this discussion), on Zeldapedia, did usually interested contributors apply? Each of you have applied or did someone had proposed or nominated you? On Xenoblade Wiki, we usually proposed a candidate.WiseAdventurer (talk) 23:45, January 17, 2017 (UTC)

Mostly it's been people applying themselves though we've had a few occasions of other people nominating candidates. You can check the archive to see just how votes typically panned out
