July '07 Round

July '07 Round Final Results

This promotion round ended successfully in July 14st, 2007, with Boxy retaining his Bureaucrat status.
Discussion are being taken on this talk page on setting a time period for how long these users will keep their crat powers.


Rules for starting an election.

  1. When a Bureaucrat resigns, or loses his status due to demotion or inactivity an election is started immediately.
    • A Bureaucrat that hasn't made a single edit in one month is considered as inactive and forfeits his status as bureaucrat.
  2. After 3 months with no elections on a bureaucrat position, an election is called for the bureaucrat position longest without an election.
  3. If, for any reason, an individual Bureaucrat position hasn't faced an election after 12 months, then an election is called after that period.
  4. The election ends after two weeks wiki time counting from the when the election is started.
  5. The candidate with the most votes wins the election.
  6. In the event of a tied vote the remaining bureaucrats will decide between the tied candidates.

Rules concerning candidates

  1. All active users with the sysops status are automatically declared candidates for any vacant Bureaucrat positions.
    • Users with at least 12 edits in the 30 days before the election are considered "active" for purposes of the election.
  2. The Bureaucrat whose position comes up for election if said election is started under rule 2 of Rules for starting an election is automatically declared a candidate.
  3. A candidate can retract his own candidacy at any time.

Rules concerning voting.

  1. All users have only one vote per bureaucrat position to be filled.
  2. Users vote for a candidate by signing under the preferred candidates name.
  3. Users may change their votes for a candidate as long as the election has not ended.
    • Multiple votes at the same time will be struck.
  4. Sockpuppetry is considered vandalism.

Eligible candidates

There is one Bureaucrat position being voted on in this round. Please only vote for one candidate.

  44. As Vista. 'arm. 01:00, 11 July 2007 (BST)


As much as I would like to serve as a Bureaucrat for this wiki, and as much as I beleive in my own skills and capabilities to function in that manner, I honestly have to much still going on in my personal life to be able to dedicate the nescesary time and resources to this position. I STRONGLY encourage anyone who would consider suporting me to suport Boxy. I feel he has all the nescessary qualifications, and to my best observations, temperment for the position. Conndrakamod TDHPD CFT 23:10, 3 July 2007 (BST)


Feel free to not vote for me, in case you had the crazy idea that you wanted to. --Daranz.t.mod janitor.W(M)^∞. 23:37, 30 June 2007 (BST)

Dux Ducis

Eh, thanks for the votes, but I'll withdraw any bid of mine. I'm kinda busy and don't really wanna be a 'crat. Not now, anyways. --Ducis DuxSlothTalk 11:01, 1 July 2007 (BST)


i fear that i might use the ubber powers of bureaucrat as a badge of reason, and enforce what i think is right for the wiki more than i already do. I would really love to be promoted again (gainning the trust and respect of the community once again would be really great), but i think that a wiki whitout me as crat would be a better wiki. I appreciate the votes i already got, but keeping boxy for another round would be a better choice, so consider (voting in/changing your vote to) him. --People's Commissar Hagnat [cloned] [mod] 04:58, 1 July 2007 (BST)

  1. Why not? He's done quite a lot--Crabappleslegalteam 03:09, 1 July 2007 (BST)
  2. Level-headed and doesn't play favorites. --Goolina Gore Corps 03:24, 1 July 2007 (BST)
  3. Hagnat, it's what's for dinner. --Sonny Corleone RRF CoL DORIS Hunt! 07:05, 1 July 2007 (BST)
    He's the best of you despicable bastards, Love me please.--karek 13:13, 1 July 2007 (BST) Changed per not running anymore.--karek 09:18, 5 July 2007 (BST)
  4. Hagnat for bureaucrat! --LukazDrakon 04:44, 2 July 2007 (BST)


Not really interested ATM. --Matthew Fahrenheit YRCT+1 23:05, 30 June 2007 (BST)
