August 2009

Election started. Suicidalangel's bureaucrat spot is now being voted on. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 04:22, 15 August 2009 (BST)

Voting is now closed, and with a tie, the final decision now rests upon the remaining bureaucrat. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 04:23, 29 August 2009 (BST)
That'd be Link. He voted for Boxy so Boxy it is then! Unless Link is allowed to change his vote, AFTER the election has been closed. Did I sum that up right?--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 10:32, 29 August 2009 (BST)
I don't remember. Do we have a run off? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 12:11, 29 August 2009 (BST)
I don't think we actually have any provision for what to do in the case of a tie - policy or precedence. I do think a run-off would be the best way to go however. Cyberbob  Talk  12:14, 29 August 2009 (BST)
Rules for starting an election - clause 6. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 12:46, 29 August 2009 (BST)
Gee I wonder what Link will say!!! That's a really dumb clause. Cyberbob  Talk  12:48, 29 August 2009 (BST)
The wording suggests that it was in the event that the tie would be between two sysops that aren't currently crats. But since SA is a crat, it's up to Link. Or should SA have a say anyway? Either way, SA is so inactive he doesn't even check his email, lest the wiki, atm. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 12:51, 29 August 2009 (BST)
Just follow the clause and let Link decide. Rules are rules. Besides, we really need an active bureaucrat with all these re-evaluations coming up. I don't think it's desirable to let Link decide on his own for all these cases, no offense.--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 16:39, 29 August 2009 (BST)
We were following the clause the whole time? This clause also suggests that SA have the right to help in the decision too, it's just your luck that he isn't around to use that right. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 16:41, 29 August 2009 (BST)
My luck? Speak for yourself.--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 16:59, 29 August 2009 (BST)
My luck would probably involve me somehow winning this crat election and taking over the wiki, obviously. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 17:01, 29 August 2009 (BST)


  1. SA is good but he's been too inactive for my liking during the past couple of months. Boxy's been keeping his eyes on all parts of the wiki lately and he knows the 'crat job well. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 10:17, 15 August 2009 (BST)
  2. SA's been a good crat but he's too inactive these days. Boxy knows what he's doing. Linkthewindow  Talk  12:20, 15 August 2009 (BST)
  3. Boxy has had his break. I say we make the bugger do some proper work again :) --Honestmistake 12:28, 15 August 2009 (BST)

  6. As DDR. --Haliman - Talk 08:08, 16 August 2009 (BST)
  7. Bring back the Box!! (Nothing wrong with you btw SA, it's just because I always vote for Boxy =p)-- Cheese 15:28, 16 August 2009 (BST)
  8. four more years! -People's Commissar Hagnat [talk] [wcdz] 17:18, 16 August 2009 (BST)

  11. Never thought i'd put my name here but there you go. Only coz nubis wants his votes fwded to SA.--xoxo 05:36, 27 August 2009 (BST)
  12. I'm changing for a similar reason to J3d. I would rather have Boxy than SA.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 11:06, 28 August 2009 (BST)

  14. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 04:21, 29 August 2009 (BST)
    I thought I would never have to do this. But the lesser of 2 evils. At least boxy is active, and I have more fun on the wiki when he has actual power--CyberRead240 05:51, 29 August 2009 (BST)
    And since buzz's vote was struck you feel you need to stand up for his rights yeah? --xoxo 06:44, 29 August 2009 (BST)
    lol @ this buzz sitchay'shon. But anyway, I am just stoked that the 'Crat election might come down to my vote.--CyberRead240 06:56, 29 August 2009 (BST)
    2 late, voting closed -- boxy talkteh rulz 07:47 29 August 2009 (BST)
    oshi, charlie just told me i had to vote by this afternoon. ohwell.--CyberRead240 07:49, 29 August 2009 (BST)
    Technically it should have ended 24 hours earlier than it did, if you check the math, because counting the 15th, the 14 day period ended yesterday at 4.00 BST. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 09:38, 29 August 2009 (BST)

See the talk page for the conversation that was here Cyberbob  Talk  12:23, 29 August 2009 (BST)


  1. Change we need.--Globetrotters Icon.png #99 DCC 17:35, 15 August 2009 (BST)


  1. No, Im not sure how my brain works either. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 09:54, 15 August 2009 (BST)
    I'd say DDR. Nothing against Suicidal, but I think DDR would be better for the wiki for the time being.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 10:06, 15 August 2009 (BST) Changing to Boxy.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 11:06, 28 August 2009 (BST)
    This election has me pretty much cornered in between chosing different shades of pure eVil. Well maybe some not that bad, I'd go for Cheese (Krazy Monkey) without a thought if he weren't so damn inactive these days. So I'd say DDR. Everything against Suicidal, and I think DDR would do a capable job, he isn't a sheep yet he is also not rebel for the sake of being rebellious. Someone who can think for himself without having an extreme view on things. Though I think he should bury the hatchet with Bob.--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png A Challenge you ought to try 11:41, 15 August 2009 (BST)
    I'm pretty sure there's no hatchet to be buried...? People can have arguments without personally hating each other's guts you know. Cyberbob  Talk  12:35, 15 August 2009 (BST)
    Well if you say so. That was quite a heated argument then.--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 13:30, 15 August 2009 (BST)
    I do say so. We've had plenty of heated arguments and they never go any further. Cyberbob  Talk  13:48, 15 August 2009 (BST)
    One argument shouldn't define an entire relationship. I take nothing out of my arguments with Bob, I've always trusted him to do the same. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 14:23, 15 August 2009 (BST)

  4. I like the fact you are inactive. you take vacations like George W Bush, and he was a great leader.... right?--THE Godfather of Яesensitized, Anime Sucks Yalk | W! U! WMM| CC CPFOAS DORISFlag.jpg LOE ZHU | Яezzens 15:22, 15 August 2009 (BST)
  5. I would vote for myself, but some people say that is tacky. So I will vote for my BFF and ride his coattails. Besides, SA is trying to good things around here.--– Nubis NWO 17:38, 15 August 2009 (BST)
  6. Seems relatively stable.--Nallan (Talk) 00:45, 16 August 2009 (BST)
  7. MEATPUPPETRY! Does a lot of work on the wiki, can't think of a reason not to promote. --RahrahCome join the #party!23:10, 16 August 2009 (BST)
  8. If Nubis is out, SA will work. I also fear change.--SirArgo Talk 00:02, 17 August 2009 (BST)
    Thanks, Argo. Someday ... someday indeed.--– Nubis NWO 01:47, 18 August 2009 (BST)
    Hey no fair.... I wanna Cat Alt to manipulate votes too :) --Honestmistake 11:22, 18 August 2009 (BST)
    I have seven more cats. I can make you one.--SirArgo Talk 05:51, 19 August 2009 (BST)
    Puuuur. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 15:57, 21 August 2009 (BST)
    depends on what their names are.... and I thought you were Nubis's cat alt, or are these cats actually your kittens??? --Honestmistake 17:50, 26 August 2009 (BST)
    Well, I am a little slut.. they could be my kittens...--– Nubis NWO 18:04, 26 August 2009 (BST)
    Given you said Argo was your cat that means there must have been some serious "family lovin'" going on.... Can I have the one with the webbed paws? --Honestmistake 22:31, 26 August 2009 (BST)
  9. I VOTE FOR SA! he is the win. Cookies and Cream 04:13, 17 August 2009 (BST)

    And what, he said he'll only show you if you vote for him? I don't see how the 2 are connected...--xoxo 03:13, 28 August 2009 (BST)
  12. I shove a huge stick in your cunt. now back to work!----SexualharrisonStarofdavid2.png Boobs.gif 01:26, 18 August 2009 (BST)

SA's been away quite a bit lately, and will be demoted due to inactivity pretty soon anyway. Unless there's a sudden outpouring of support for him, I'll promote Boxy in a few days. Linkthewindow  Talk  07:57, 31 August 2009 (BST)

You might as well do it now. You have 2 A/RE bids lined up to do by tomorow, etc. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 09:10, 31 August 2009 (BST)
