User:Axe Hack

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Urban Dead Wiki, I come before you today to prove beyond any reasonable doubt that my client should be found to be worthy of a promotion to the esteemed position of System Operator. I will now begin presenting my case, ladies and gentlemen, if you could bear with me for a few moments.
I wish to turn the jury's attention to our first piece of evidence: the time that my client has been active in this community. Unfortunately, we were unable to ascertain the exact date due to loss of information, however we have managed to confirm that my client was first active on or before the 19th of July of 2006. This is far beyond the required 2 months and shows the experience of my client.
Next, I wish to present evidence of my client's contributions to this community. According to the guidelines, a minimum of 500 edits is requested before sysopship can be considered. To date my client has made 9401 edits to this wiki, ladies and gentlemen. I ask you, with this many edits, does it not show how dedicated to this community that my client is?
Within these many thousands of edits, my client has performed many administration tasks, such as preparing pages for Protection, Speedy Deletion, participated in policy discussions and the apprehension of vandalism suspects. My client has also loaned his opinions in the suggestion system in order to help better the city for all who live here. On top of all this, my client has put pen to paper more times than any other user. Is this not a man you can trust? He signs because he must. Each one betters this community in some small way.
My client will now take to the stand to answer any questions that his opponents may have, but my part in the proceedings is now over. I rest my case. -- Cheese 23:56, 9 April 2008 (BST)

I am baffled by this, and I shall accept. And am I really that old? Wow... --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 00:01, 10 April 2008 (BST)

    Just because of my previous mod stats on some forum being swiped because of my sister? Don't worry about that. She moved out of the house already. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 01:48, 10 April 2008 (BST)
    Why didn't you say it was a womans fault in the first place! In honour of the fact that the bottle of finest malt whisky i consumed before voting has not given me a hangover, In honour of the fact that Axe has blamed a woman for his ill behaviour but most of all in honour of the fact that this promotion would almost certainly annoy a few current sysops... I heartily and fully endorse this candidate ;) --Honestmistake 09:24, 11 April 2008 (BST)
  • Abstain Against - I don't know, your friendly and what not, but I haven't really seen you anywhere besides suggestions.... prove to me you should be a sysops.... As Suicide Angel... Just not enough "real contributions" --/~Rakuen~\Talk Domo.gif I Still Love Grim 16:56, 10 April 2008 (BST)
    Well. All those Welcome Newbie templates, that is, if you wish to count those. And if you look at protection, I tried to help out there, but Karek only got pissed. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 23:07, 10 April 2008 (BST)

  • Vouch As long as you get more involved in policy discussion dleetion voting etc. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 10:26, 11 April 2008 (BST)
  • Abstain - Part of the reason I declined my nomination was that I wondered how I'd do any more good as a sysop... why not remain a regular, but contributing, user? And I think the same question has to be applied to Mr. Axe Hack. --WanYao 10:57, 11 April 2008 (BST)
  • Against - The number of contributions should not matter, but the quality of them is what should be counted. Welcome Newbie spamming? Big deal. Not something to be made into a sysops over. Being the user with his name on the most pages? Who cares, when a pissload of them were WN spam anyway? Blaming things on your sister? Pretty childish thing to do. Man up, and face the consequences of your actions. Then there's the fact that I never really see you doing worth doing. Mostly spam. Now, I'm not counting the spam against you, as that'd make me a hypocrite, but if you don't do anything for the wiki, why should you be made into a SysOp? To be honest, looking at your last 500 contributions (About March 26 to now), the only things I've really seen you do is WN spam, play around in suggestions related stuff, and that burst of "help" on Protections, which just seems like an effort to make yourself look better for your bid. Do something worth making you into a sysop, mate. I have no doubt you, or any other user can.-- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 11:22, 11 April 2008 (BST)
    Some of the stuff that I did were really from my sister. I'm being real honest about that. But...Guess you can't believe me because you don't live or ever been over to my house. The Protection stuff? I was planning to post all that, seeing that I have gathered those suggestions for the past month on Notepad, getting ready to C+P it all there. I was double checking the list when this bid came up. And yeah, yeah. I know WN templates don't really count. But who can blame KM for adding that stuff in that nomination? --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 19:48, 11 April 2008 (BST)
    Why, anyone with a few neurons to rub together. --Cyberbob DORIS CGR U! 03:57, 12 April 2008 (BST)
  • Against - can't vouch axe, but i also can't be against him. He does cares for the wiki, but he can be an arse sometimes... but so can all the other sysops (specially me). --People's Commissar Hagnat [cloned] [mod] 14:47, 11 April 2008 (BST)
    changed vote based on his recent discussion on this talk page. And he seems to wants the position a little too much (c'mon, facebook ?) --People's Commissar Hagnat [cloned] [mod] 04:35, 19 April 2008 (BST)

  • Abstain - I have nothing against you, but it seems that you're just going for sysop because someone nominated you, rather than because it's a job you either want to do or have time for. I may be wrong, which is why I'm abstaining rather than voting against. --Funt Solo QT Scotland flag.JPG 23:18, 12 April 2008 (BST)
    I was planning for a run in 2009. But, since KM nominated me, I thought "Eh. Why not give it a try now?" --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 03:12, 13 April 2008 (BST)

  • I'm not sure you'll get through on this round, but I'd like to say that I don't have anything againgst you being a sysop, quite the opposite actualy, I think you've eisily got the potential to make a good sysop. Your contributions to policy discussions and other such areas like arbitration might allow us all to get a better picture as to how you'd behave as a sysop other than that, I gots nothin to add......--SeventythreeTalk 23:06, 13 April 2008 (BST)

    I've mentioned somewhere a little higher that my sister has already moved out of the house. Therefore, she won't go crazy with my computer in this household again. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 21:40, 18 April 2008 (BST)

  • Against - Nothing else to add. --Cryptosporidium 03:47, 18 April 2008 (BST)
  • Against - Edits lack quality. Advertising on his user page that he has his signature everywhere? "+1" spamming? This is not a man who should be an admin. These aren't contributions. These are examples of editcountitis. Iunnrais 05:05, 18 April 2008 (BST)

  • Abstain - This was going to be an Against, but the slew of recent votes rendered it pointless. I have nothing against the user personally, he makes contributions that can be helpful, sometimes amuse me and contributes to the community spirit through things like his quiz. However, I have not yet read, certainly from what I've seen on this page, any reason why he needs the extra buttons and access a sysop would have. Also 'might as well try now' (paraphrased) when nominated does not convince me of the dedication to this volunteer position, we have enough apathetic people in this position already. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge!
