Comments closed on July 18th, 2017. Current bureaucrats Bob and Ross are not up for re-evaluation.

After a discussion with Ross, we have decided that all the eligible sysops have succeeded in re-evaluation. Thanks everybody! Bob Moncrief EBDW! 00:54, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

A Helpful Little Gnome


As mentioned in my userspace announcement, I'll be away for a few weeks starting the day after tomorrow. If you have any questions for me, you had better ask them today, otherwise I won't have time to notice and respond before I head out. Aichon 15:46, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

  • (If you end up reading this in time): Do you have a best estimate on when, or if, UD might reach an active population of zero? --  AHLGTG 00:33, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
    If left to itself, popularity tends to have rather long tail. As such, reaching true 0 would take quite some time. In the case of UD, were it left to itself, I wouldn't be shocked if I was told 30 years from now that people were still playing. That said, I doubt Kevan would leave it to itself, simply on account of the fact that running the game costs a non-zero amount of money, whereas his revenue from the game is likely to hit 0 in the not-too-distant future. I'd wager the costs are relatively negligible, especially as the game shrinks, and Kevan strikes me as the sort who would try to keep it running as long as possible, perhaps even being willing to lose a bit of money on it each month, but I'd guess we're already past the halfway point of the game's life. I'd give it another 10 years or so. Aichon 15:38, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
  • If you could only eat one particular type of cake for the rest of your life, what would it be? -- Cheese 18:57, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
    I love rich desserts, so if we're allowing anything with "cake" in the name, I'd go for cheesecake in a heartbeat. If we're only allowing the more typical varieties of cakes, at the moment, I'd probably take the mini bundt cakes from Nothing Bundt Cake (probably their carrot cake one, if I had to narrow it down to just one that I was allowed to eat from then on; though on a one-off basis, I'd probably pick red velvet). I don't know what they put in those things, but dang, they're good. Aichon 19:19, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
  • For - I wouldn't have the chance to sneak him onto the crat election if he were to be demoted. -- Spiderzed 08:27, 18 July 2017 (UTC)


  • Boxy (talk | contribs | UDWiki contribs | logs1 | logs2 | vndl data | sysop archive)
  • Vouch or whatever - I'm fairly certain Boxy not being a Sysop is a sign of the apocalypse. --Cheese 18:53, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
  • For - Boxy may not be particularly active, but, as AHLG, he's around when we need him, which is about what we need from a sysop these days. Aichon 22:39, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
  • For - An UD Wiki without Boxy as op would be like a tomato soup without tomatoes. -- Spiderzed 08:27, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

  • Not much to say here other than you may end up being the only Sysop if Bob happens to drop off the planet again! --  AHLGTG 00:33, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
  • For, but I also have a question: with your first few weeks as a sysop perhaps giving you a new perspective on things, is there anything you think should be changed around here? Aichon 22:37, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
    In regards to how things are run sysop-wise? Not really. Seems to be down to a fine art at this stage. But it's also hard to tell if anything should be changed being that the wiki (aside from the sudden influx of vandalism/spambots recently) is relatively quiet. stelar (talk) 10:59, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
  • For - Maybe I will change my mind next year, but it is much too early to evaluate Stelar. And what I have seen in that short time gave me nothing to complain about. -- Spiderzed 08:27, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
  • OMG?! - Words cannot express how uncomfortable I feel seeing someone actually new to the team. Welcome to the team, Stelar, and good luck. A ZOMBIE ANT 02:58, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
