Forums: Index RfA Voting
Note: This topic has been unedited for 830 days. It is considered archived - the discussion is over. Do not add to unless it really needs a response.

Alright, so we're going to be voting in three new admin today. After the whole stirring up earlier this year, we've decided to try out a community vote rather than just picking the new admin (though one would have still been a community vote, as per the terms H*bad insisted upon when he stepped down for personal reasons).

Now then, for the rules of voting. You will each have one vote. We won't count votes from accounts created after August 1, 2008. The top three will most likely become your new admin. The administration does reserve the right to veto any or all winners, but I really just don't see that happening, but hey, if it does, you were warned. If you campaign, please try and keep your campaigning to the point. Mud slinging is not an acceptable type of campaigning here. You can point out advantages you might have over someone, but keep any debates relevant to the issue at hand.

For the record, when H*bad does return, whenever that may be, we will hold an RfA for him, in which we will choose whether or not one of the newly elected admin will step down and H*bad take back his place.

Results

Well, from the look of it, we have our new admins. Congratulations to LOMI, Subby, and 077. I'll talk to RR about getting you guys sysopped.

1. Well capable candidate. Gunnery Sergeant | GunnerySergeant.gif 14:53, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

3. I think that she knows quite a bit about the inner workings of the wiki, and has written some pretty masterful articles on the site. She's a very humble person as well. SPARTAN-091[Admin]UNSC.jpg [Talk]


4. I agree she's made loads of great articles and is really good at comming up with origonal content for them too. She would be a great admin.

10. I fully support Subtank for an administrative position. When she came here and to Halopedia, she struck me as a focused, ableit quiet user. While she is somewhat overzealous at times, I think her extraordinary attention to detail and caution make her a strong and confident choice.

This has relatively little to do about good fanon; this has to do about who is the most capable user to take care of this site with. I'm not as sure about you Parkster, but I know the rest of us can handle such responsibilities.

LOMI, if you don't think that i'm capable then you haven't read my campaign message nor do you know me. You've already annoyed me enough today but dropping my Brute stuff, and yes it was you because i've spoken to Ajax and he said that its all your responsibility and concern. I've been busy but we need to talk about it because i'm not happy with it or the way you told be. Then you go and bluntly offend me again, when the fact is; you don't even know me, or what i'm capable of when given big responsibilities. I asked Ajax and he said that as long as its not mud slinging then i can campaign in the way that i did. Spam stands for short pointless annoying messages. Now it isn't short, its a long message. It has an extremely strong point to it and i don't really think that its that annoying. However it is a message and so i suppose you can call it "m-ing". I don't know what you've got against me LOMI but i don't think that the way you speak to me or respect me is the right way. We need to sort this out before it gets out of hand and so speak to me on my talk page. Regards,

Parkster, I'm merely going with what I've seen:

  • yes, you've made large amounts of edits, and connected your fanon, but that's not the major concern here.
  • Yes, you've given good feedback, but you've also given bad ones.
  • You've created new policies for the site, which were helpful, but I could've seen them as better had we better flesh-out the NCF policy itself.
  • I have nothing against you, aside from the few times you've gotten on my nerves
  • I'm unable to have witnessed you as an admin or with any higher responsibilites; all I've seen you do is on here, where you're a regular user who has annoyed me and Ajax over control of the Necros project multiple times
  • Finally, it was Ajax's idea to drop you and your stuff from the Jiralhanae Alliance, despite whatever you will say. He expressed distaste at the new naming system, so when he said he was dropping you, I asked about the names and he said to drop them. I would have left your stuff, but since they follow the "un-Covie" (for lack of a better term) name system and I figured you wouldn't change it, I only knew to drop them.

Any other questions?

Well i'm willing to forget it LOMI. I don't care who dropped it but i can live. At least it will save me a lot of hastle. Also i know you've never seen me with responsibilities but i blatantly put links onto the campaign message and if you follow them then you'll get a taste of what i've achieved directly and indirectly (in the sence that i've gotten the attention and contributional enthusiasm from users) over the lst eight months. That was from scratch and i it wouldn't be half as good if it wasn't for me. However lets stop babling about pointless things. It doesn't matter and if you don't like my hard work or my style of doing things then thats tough really, because we're all different. I'll put yesterday's events where they stand: in the past. As for JAG, that's funny, i like it! LOL

  • The only two users in this election worthy of the title of 'admin' are Subtank and LOMI. The SPARTAN user isn't a bad guy, but he's not admin material. The Parkster is nowhere near administrator material, and seems to be treating this like a campaign, as if he's competing against the other candidates, which isn't the meaning of an RfA. Anyone who goes around on talk pages asking to be voted for shouldn't be voted for, and anyone who treats this like some sort of campaign ditto. The Parkster also nominated himself - yet another reason why he shouldn't be voted for. He's nowhere near admin material, and I feel that he needs to sort a lot of his areas out before being nominated again, and he definitely shouldn't be nominating himself. --Darthtomsig.png iChat What I've done 08:56, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Mudslinging Stops Now.

Vasco da Gama and all the mayonnaise jars of the southeastern Pacific Ocean! There's more mudslinging going on in this forum than in the 2009 Presidential election cycle. Please remember the civility rules as you post guys... And Parkster, Ajax is probably the last admin you would want to go to for firm dates on anything. He's very busy coordinating his Necros campaign, and isn't usually that in contact with the active bureaucrat. The RfA will definitely be over by August 31 (maybe sooner), just to make sure everyone who can vote has voted. That may seem like a long time, but we'll adjust it as necessary. Questions regarding dates on things like RfAs should be directed to Roteratilbo. If you can't get ahold of him, ask me, because I can. Ajax is quite busy, so don't expect him to be omniscient.

Wow, there is no mudslinging. This is fair. I know me and LOMI may have had a small argument but its all made up now. Also sorry about Ajax, its just that i've got his msn and i thought i'd get a quick answer that way. So i'll redierct my questions to some other admin.

The end...

I've been offended. I've been forced to campaign my way to votes. I'm a faliure.

:(

However i'm glad that our three new admins are excellent users and so i'm happy for that. This has taught me a good lesson though: "You may forget the past but the past does not forget you..." In a sense, the immature things i did when i was new to the site and the people i may have offended, comes back to haunt me. Still, i'm happy and i'll contribute well as i always do, however this time i will be much nicer to users and my feedback will be more constructive...

Anyhoo, lets stop sobbing and celebrate!!! Thanks for the support people and thanks for voting in great admins too!!!
