User:The General

As the oldest sysop, General is first for re-evaluation as per the new policy. We've never done this before, but because it's a week and not a fortnight, the crats might want to consider starting the week-long time period from when he acknowledges this, rather than from when I put him up. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 01:30, 20 August 2009 (BST)

Thanks you, I acknowledge this re-evaluation bid confirm that I wish to continue as a sysop. Anyway, a bit about me: I'm one of the longest running sysops on the wiki, having been promoted in 2006. I've tried to act fairly and in the interests of the wiki throughout that time and I've helped to write several policies. I went up for re-evaluation in 2007 and I'm up again now as per the recently passed policy.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 15:29, 20 August 2009 (BST)
  • Vouch - Although I haven't seen him for a while, his more recent edits are gold, and he's a valuable sysop. Also, I find it awesome that i get to be the first voucher on a re-evaluation.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 23:04, 20 August 2009 (BST)
  • Against - --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 23:06, 20 August 2009 (BST)
  • Vouch - He's not as active as I like the average sysop to be, but, like SA, he's always around. I trust him and I'd like him to stay on the team. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 00:29, 21 August 2009 (BST)
  • Vouch - Despite disagreeing with The General as often as I do (which, thinking about it, isn't all that often) I don't think the sysop team could do without him. Cyberbob  Talk  01:40, 21 August 2009 (BST)
  • Abstain I have issues with the direction I've seen The General try to take things in the past, but I am glad to see him joining in more so I won't be a dick and speak out against him. --– Nubis NWO 02:57, 21 August 2009 (BST)
  • Vouch - Punk, ska, comedy. He's old enough to know better, and he generally seems to, so yeah. -Wulfenbach 03:40, 21 August 2009 (BST)
  • Abstain - I went to The General to save some time, only to find that he did not have the best car insurance rates on line. On a more serious note, I don't feel qualified to judge him given my relatively limited experience.

  • Vouch - it would be sad to see another old dinosaur go. --People's Commissar Hagnat [talk] [wcdz] 03:51, 21 August 2009 (BST)
  • Vouch --WanYao 04:17, 21 August 2009 (BST)
  • Abstain Vote changed. I can't vote Vouch due to his long-term inactivity. One doesn't have to log in 20 times a day to be a good sysop, but until VERY recently The General has been one of those enigmatic "mystery sysops" who might show up for a misconduct or vandalism vote here and there, but little else. --WanYao 16:04, 23 August 2009 (BST)
  • Abstain - Honestly, I don't know at this point.--SirArgo Talk 05:56, 21 August 2009 (BST)
  • Question - How many edits have you made in the last 3 months that have required sysop status? I have seen you on A/VB a few times but am a bit concerned about your seeming lack of activity. --Honestmistake 11:03, 21 August 2009 (BST)
  • very weak against On balance I think you have been far too inactive for months. Its unfortunate that this has come up just as you are starting to contribute again as you are a good sysop but that doesn't change the fact that you just have not been doing the job recently. --Honestmistake 08:54, 24 August 2009 (BST)
  • Against - I'm disturbed by his puritanical censorship over on the deletions page, and general lack of sysop activity. Why have the badge if you never visit the office? --Funt Solo QT Scotland flag.JPG 16:49, 21 August 2009 (BST)
  • Vouch - He's good at what he does, so we should let him continue. --Haliman - Talk 23:30, 21 August 2009 (BST)
  • Against - I don't believe him active enough anymore.-- Adward  11:54, 22 August 2009 (BST)
  • Against - This is what this policy is for, to re-evaluate. General is lucky he is first because he will get it over and done with and the crats wont demote the first person who gets put up. He is far too inactive really.--CyberRead240 14:08, 22 August 2009 (BST)
  • Against - He's a good kid, but he's inactive, and looking through his contributions, I'm not really seeing much in the way of administration edits. --THE Godfather of Яesensitized, Anime Sucks Yalk | W! U! WMM| CC CPFOAS DORISFlag.jpg LOE ZHU | Яezzens 14:58, 22 August 2009 (BST)
  • Vouch - Seems good enough to stay Ephraim 00:18, 24 August 2009 (BST)
  • Against - Who? If I don't even know who you are, probably shouldn't be a sysop.-- | T | BALLS! | 19:55 24 August 2009(BST)
  • Against - As Honestmistakes unanswered question implies, he doesn't really need to be a sysop to log two entries for March, or to come out of retirement every so often to rule on a misconduct case. Seems like a great guy, but we shouldn't keep him as a sysop just because he's an Ent.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 20:27, 24 August 2009 (BST)
    It was answered on his talk page, and for a well explained reason. And quite timely, I might add. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 22:37, 24 August 2009 (BST)
    For the record the GEnerals answer wasn't bad ands should he fail this and restand as a Sysop once his activity goes back to former levels I will vouch for him. However as he is still in Italy and was due back months ago I cannot be sure of him remaining active.... hence my (very weak) against! --Honestmistake 22:55, 24 August 2009 (BST)
    Just to note: that template on my userpage was wrong, it was meant to say I'd be back on the 25th of August and I'm not sure why I said June! I'm now back home so my activity will increase.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 19:59, 25 August 2009 (BST)
  • Abstain - As I am just now getting started at this point, I'm in no position to judge. But from what I've seen and heard, he's a good community member (if a slightly inactive one) whom alot of people like. --Johnny Yossarian 21:52, 24 August 2009 (BST)
  • Against - i don't like people who are so inactive being able to make important decisions about issues that have no idea about.--xoxo 01:00, 25 August 2009 (BST)
    what you mean like every "community" vote ever??? why do you hate democracy???????? Cyberbob  Talk  00:41, 27 August 2009 (BST)
    hmmmm not bad. although it's not really a fair comparison until misconduct votes are opened to every user. I'm more than okay with the general being allowed to keep his status as a community member and thus he can continue to meatpuppet away policy votes and suggestions to his hearts content.--xoxo 04:16, 27 August 2009 (BST)
    please provide evidence that the general meatpuppets policy votes and suggestions thanks in advance. Cyberbob  Talk  14:31, 27 August 2009 (BST)
    mildly amusing at best.--xoxo 08:26, 2 September 2009 (BST)
    yeah it's not too amusing to be exposed as a liar is it Cyberbob  Talk  08:42, 2 September 2009 (BST)
    you dont actually want me to rebut you because you know how flawed your argument is, hence i'm not going to bother. Say what you like about that and please, continue exposing me.--xoxo 10:57, 2 September 2009 (BST)
  • Abstain - Was inactive until his opinion was called for (or not), but then continued to be active. --Bob Boberton TF / DW Littlemudkipsig.gif 05:37, 26 August 2009 (BST)
  • Vouch - From what i have seen he seems to be good a what he does. --Michalesonbadge.pngTCAPD(╯°□°)╯ ┻━┻ 13:24, 26 August 2009 (BST)
  • Abstain I have no clue, considering his record. He's been inactive and then he comes back and does good work for a while. Frankly, I don't know. --User:Axe27/Sig 16:51, 26 August 2009 (BST)

The community discussion is now closed and this Re-Evaluation now awaits a decision from the 'crats. -- Cheese 16:01, 27 August 2009 (BST)

Contacting SA now. Since he's been a bit inactive lately, I'll process this on Monday/Tuesday if I don't hear back from him by then. Linkthewindow  Talk  07:52, 28 August 2009 (BST)

The General has had a history of inactivity, but he does a good job when he's around. Because extra (good) sysops harm nobody, his reevaluation is successful. Linkthewindow  Talk  08:03, 2 September 2009 (BST)
