Eligible Candidates


Boxy (talk | contribs)
  1. when will boxy get permanent crat status ? --People's Commissar Hagnat [talk] [wcdz] 14:35, 11 July 2010 (BST)
  2. As Hag. =p -- Cheese 14:45, 11 July 2010 (BST)
  3. Vote for Boxy or the entire wiki collapse in on itself!
    Boxy won't quit. His last 500 edits came at a rate of 2.55 per day. He is not near inactivity, in fact he's far from it. We don't want a crat who's at the peak of a short career of countless edits, we want one who we can count on avoiding inactivity for their whole reign. And Boxy has been here since 2006. There is no chance of his quitting anytime soon.
    Boxy had a perfectly good opportunity to pull off a coup, and he wasted it. Thus, we can be certain the he won't try anything. But all these people who have never been crat before never had that chance. For all we know, every single one of them plans to demote everyone else and delete every single page and image on the entire wiki.
    Boxy is fireproof. Other candidates might not burst into flame, but they will, every time, crackle and release more sparks than were lain upon them. Boxy sucks up sparks like a vacuum and douses them in the blood of his enemies water.
    No one hates Boxy. If boxy is elected crat, some people will be mildly upset, but only because he beat their preferred candidate. Everyone else has developed enemies on the wiki, and they will be enraged or even inflamed by the result, and the fire could spread (albeit not through Boxy). Boxy just isn't controversial enough for a victory to start a fight.
    Save us all from certain doom: Vote Boxy! --VVV RPGMBCWS 19:20, 11 July 2010 (BST)

  13. fuck you boxy! stop doing such a damn good job and being leveled headed and good humored and shit. or we will keep on vouching for you. cunt! ;)----sexualharrisonStarofdavid2.png ¯\(Boobs.gif)/¯ 06:15, 13 July 2010 (BST)
  14. You're being slightly less active than before, but you're still an excellent op, and an excellent crat.-- Adward  15:04, 15 July 2010 (BST)
  15. Because of my impending inactivity, I'm changing my vote now. I believe that Boxy is the better of the two choices for the role of crat. In terms of sysophood, I'd be more open to a Mis-Boxy debate, but for being a crat, Boxy is definitely the best.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 18:39, 18 July 2010 (BST)
  16. boxy ain't perfect and i don't agree with him 100% of the time, but he's head and shoulders above the rest in maturity, integrity and reliability. not mention experience. --WanYao 05:06, 19 July 2010 (BST)
  17. Boxy (as usual)--Honestmistake 13:22, 19 July 2010 (BST)
  18. Often too liberal and forgiving of idiocy for me, but it's good to have a level head steering the crazy bus. --Funt Solo QT Scotland flag.JPG 20:49, 20 July 2010 (BST)
  19. Boxy has been, I think, a good "standard" to use for measuring other sysops against both because he's been one for so long and because his rulings have been fair and thought out every time I have seen them. As a 'Crat I think he does a bang-up job of being about as impartial as one could expect and not going insane. Particularly since that last bit is so impressive, I want to see how long before he snaps. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 09:00, 24 July 2010 (BST)


Misanthropy (talk | contribs)
  1. Active, helpful and can approach drama fests without getting too involved. -- Spiderzed 12:25, 11 July 2010 (BST)
  2. Mis has always been friendly and helpful. - Poodle of Doom 21:00, 11 July 2010 (BST)
  3. I feel like it's time for some new blood at the 'crat rank, and Misanthropy is the natural pick. Plus, while boxy is by no means inactive, he's not exactly active outside the admin area either. Aichon 21:34, 11 July 2010 (BST)
  4. Misantropy is a good choice-- Jerrel tlk (82nd!) (Project Unwelcome!). 22:40, 11 July 2010 (BST)
  5. I can't exactly vote against the ticket leader who gave me the Mayoralty, now, can I? ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 03:50, 12 July 2010 (BST)
  6. I choose you, Misanthropy! --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 11:14, 12 July 2010 (BST)
  7. Though decision. Technical Pacifist 12:20, 12 July 2010 (BST)
  8. There is, indeed, no other unworthy candidate worthy of such a high place through a vote of indecisiveness. Suffice to say, Misanth certainly doesn't not get my vote, huzzah! ----Ash  |  T  |  яя  | 23:37, 13 July 2010 (BST)

I for one would like to see a Bureaucrat who is politically neutral and keeps out of drama. Best person possible to be selecting new sysops.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 11:47, 11 July 2010 (BST)

Those of you who voted for me or were planning to vote for me, I thank you heartily for the show of support (and would like to apologize to you for what I'm about to do), but I'm afraid I'm not interested in the position at this time and so I will, somewhat selfishly, remove myself from the running. I've given it some thought over the last few days leading up to this, and I don't envy the job of the 'crats in the slightest. To be perfectly frank, I don't want to get mired down in obligation and drama any more than I already am. I accepted a nomination for sysop, though I never really wanted it, but, for now, I draw the line there. Thanks again. Aichon 20:21, 11 July 2010 (BST)

This is in no way because I think I'm unfit for the job, it just isn't in my current interest at this time, I have maintained a pittance of edits/presence compared to what I'm accustomed to on this wiki and while that's enough for a regular user or sysop I feel that I'm best in a side seat at this moment. -- 18:22, 11 July 2010 (BST)
No! Now who will I vote swing to?!--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 18:26, 11 July 2010 (BST)
Aye, I have to respect that. You've proven you can do the job; stepping back was your own choice, and doing so without exploding (and subsequently being re-opped) proves that you know yourself well enough to determine your own level of involvement. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 03:54, 12 July 2010 (BST)

I've managed to bounce from being swamped with uni work to being swamped with shifts at work so free time is still limited. I'm definitely not around enough to justify being voted 'crat. =p On the plus side I'll be slightly more free in a couple of weeks to do some more interesting stuff. -- Cheese 22:44, 14 July 2010 (BST)


The Election is over, and Boxy retains his Bureaucrat status. Thanks everyone. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 11:38, 25 July 2010 (BST)
