This time I am posting my own promotions bid, rather than having it posted by one of the most notorious former wiki users as revenge. Let's see if it goes any differently.

N.B.
I currently have lots of free time, as anybody on my Facebook can attest, and I would like to put it to more constructive use, i.e. further serving the Urban Dead community.

Cheers,

  • question - what's changed since your last bid? not a lot by the looks of it. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 02:08, 29 March 2011 (BST)
    I am active on the wiki, have the free time to work on wiki projects, and have not been nominated as a joke by Grim. As I said in my bid above. Got any questions I haven't already answered? Oh, and I've now got mobile internets access, so I can edit and (assuming this bid goes well) psyop while out, too. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 03:13, 29 March 2011 (BST)
    If you want to use your free time helping out the UD community, why do you have to be an op? To be honest and not as offensive as I probably sound, the only reason that springs to mind is that there's some sort of lol quota on a forum somewhere which needs meeting. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 04:17, 29 March 2011 (BST)
    That's also on the to-do list, TBH. And I'll respond more fully when I get the chance, just heading out the door ATM. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 04:26, 29 March 2011 (BST)
    That's cool, no hurry. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 05:19, 29 March 2011 (BST)
    Also, I have another question. How come when you (and other non-'wiki addicts', if you're cool speaking on their behalf) run for promotion, you feel the need to meatpuppet the crap out of the bid? Before anyone judges please note I'm of course not against meatpuppeting, nor for it, I'm just curious why you do it when A/PM is a system that is designed to diametrically oppose the influence of meatpuppets? -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 12:31, 29 March 2011 (BST)
    Eh, none of my vouches were meatpuppets, except for the one that couldn't read and voted me by mistake. Or, if they were puppets then I had no knowledge of it. --Ash  |  T  |  яя  | 14:34, 29 March 2011 (BST)
    "Meatpuppet" is such an ugly word. This may come as a shock to you, but the wiki is hardly the centre of the UD-verse. In fact, most people play quite happily without consulting it much if at all. Instead, I would say that I am attempting to reach out to the broader Urban Dead community and encourage participation from different demographics. In fact, I can name at least one person who has returned from at least ~3 years of absence due to my linking this on Facebook. How can that be a bad thing? ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 15:13, 29 March 2011 (BST)
    So basically meatpuppet is an ugly word, but you basically deconstruct your actions as getting people who don't use the wiki much at all but know what it is, to bring support to your bid where they would otherwise be spending that time (for example ~3 years) away from the wiki? Doesn't sound like meatpuppeting at all. You didn't even answer my question either? -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 22:27, 29 March 2011 (BST)
    I don't think he voted for me – he can't stand the wiki – just started playing again. Also, like I said, UD community and UD Wiki community have overlap but are by no means identical. If you only post on the wiki you disenfranchise those who do not spend much time on here but still have an interest in favour of the more vocal minority. Also, I thought I sorta answered it in one of my other responses below? ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 22:59, 29 March 2011 (BST)
    Wait, so the reason you get people here in hordes is not to dogpile your promotions bid, but to extend other metagaming media to ud players who don't wiki much? -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 04:26, 30 March 2011 (BST)
    Have you ever thought that there's a reason a lot of people avoid the wiki like the plague? These people know me and what I stand for. I'm not telling them what to write, as I'm sure you can see. I'd point to Toast's Against as an example but he's busy avoiding the place like despite my encouragement. Grr! Argh! *shaking fist* ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 05:02, 30 March 2011 (BST)
    further discussion on the talk page
    It means that a very very large part of the player base knows and supports Revenant and is willing to vouch for him. Stop trying to make out like being respected by most/a large part of the game community means he's not trustworthy, it's shit and it's a part of how the wiki's lost the community. I mean shit, the guy is a mod on all four major metagame boards somehow and you think he's untrustworthy? --Karekmaps?! 05:09, 30 March 2011 (BST)

  • Against - Creating a bunch of crit 1 pages to set the tone? Meh -- boxy talkteh rulz 02:26 29 March 2011 (BST)
    IMO we need more, less-burned-out psyops with a sense of humour. I think I fit that profile. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 03:13, 29 March 2011 (BST)
    If you were a sysop, what would you do if someone nominated such pages for speedydeletion? -- boxy talkteh rulz 09:10 29 March 2011 (BST)
    Assuming that 1) I had not created them and b) I found them funny, I would vote to keep and attempt to improve said pages until they were no longer eligible for Speedy Deletion. (Which is probably what I'll do assuming nobody else gets it…)ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 09:31, 29 March 2011 (BST)
    How do you suggest we improve those specific pages? Wouldn't any expansion sort of kill the whole joke (what there is of it)? -- boxy talkteh rulz 10:56 29 March 2011 (BST)
    Bump -- boxy talkteh rulz 12:20 30 March 2011 (BST)
    Oh right! Possibly add Category:Humour and perhaps “See also: Recursion” and/or an InterWiki link to the relevant page on HSwiki. I'd be tempted to make a template, actually… Which reminds me, InterWiki links are another thing I want to set up that also requires the Administrator bit. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 12:30, 30 March 2011 (BST)
    None of which would make them any less eligible for crit 1 and 2 speedydeletion. The answer I was looking for was that you would either delete them, or move them to an appropriate place. A big part of a sysop's duties is to try to keep the main namespace relevant. Informative pages about Urban Dead, the groups that play, events that happen and the way players interact, is what goes there. It's not a place for circular pages linking to each other with nothing more than "See also:" on them -- boxy talkteh rulz 02:25 31 March 2011 (BST)
    I don't consider “delete them” to be a valid response to “improve until no longer eligible for deletion”. Icon rolleyes.gif And moving wouldn't make them particularly less valid for deletion unless it was to the User: namespace, which would defeat the point. Although I was tempted to change to Templates and… hmm… ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 05:35, 31 March 2011 (BST)
    The delete them option is a valid responce to my question, if you look back to the original. But anyway, moving dose serve a purpose. That is keeping the main namespace relevant. Such off topic stuff is acceptable in owned namespaces (and pseudo-namespaces like as a group or user subpage), but not in the main namespace. A big part of a sysop's job is to keep content in it's correct place, to ensure it remains a valid resource for information on the game. That is the primary purpose of the wiki, after all. Do you really believe you could serve this purpose first, and put having fun second? -- boxy talkteh rulz 05:46 1 April 2011 (BST)
    Right, but it would run contradictory to my response earlier. That said, you are correct, and if they were voted for regular or speedy-deletion, fit the criteria, and couldn't be and/or weren't improved or moved, I would delete them as required. (And undetete and move to user's space if requested.) My tendencies tend to the inclusionist rather than deletionist, but I'm not one to shy away from doing what needs to be done, especially if it's a job I've signed up for with full knowledge of what's involved. (And I am fucking glad A/SD Crit 12 was killed. Too much interesting history lost.) ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 07:55, 1 April 2011 (BST)
    What do you need access to to set up interwiki linking? Sysops and crats don't have that many more buttons, and unless it's just a matter of editing a protected (special?) page, then I suspect it would fall to Kevan anyway -- boxy talkteh rulz 02:25 31 March 2011 (BST)
    Oh right, keep forgetting we can't easily have extensions installed. Bug Kevan for Extension:SpecialInterwiki, I suppose, and then establish consensus for links, probably based on what wikis are most linked to or would be most useful to link to. (Also: holy hell is this wiki out of date.) ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 05:35, 31 March 2011 (BST)
    Yeah, no kidding it's old. Tell ya what, you get Kevan to update the wiki and I'll vouch you as supreme overlord crat-op-min with an expiry time of infinite. Dooo eeet! ~Vsig.png 06:06, 31 March 2011
    Heck, I'll give it a go. Been meaning to email him about a few other things anyhow. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 06:21, 31 March 2011 (BST)
    The last few earnest requests for an update have been met with...nothing. I'd wouldn't be too surpised if he hasn't been pinged via email a few times about it either. But hey if ya got an "in" then give them man a shout. I want me some extensions. Moar extensions and bettah parser functions would be keen. And there's a pretty important security update I think we're missing. ~Vsig.png 07:14, 31 March 2011
    I know. I have a backup plan which I'd prefer not to put in place but will if necessary. (And no, it's not locking Kevan in my wood shed. Tongue :P) ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 22:36, 31 March 2011 (BST)

    Firstly, thanks for the vouch, but I should note for the sake of clarity that I'm actually too lazy to do much grunt-work with the Zerg Liste. Hence, technical/advisory role. Which reminds me of another list-related project I need to get off the back-burner… ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 15:54, 29 March 2011 (BST)
  • Abstain - I think you have the mindset and the abilities to be a capable sys-op. However, I'd be far more comfortable if I could see you first committing a couple of months to maintenance and janitorial stuff. (OTOH, we have promoted Thad, whose greatest achievement within 3 months was to half-way re-arrange the bids chronology and then drop that "project" as soon as he had the buttons...) -- Spiderzed 15:45, 29 March 2011 (BST)
    TBH, the biggest thing I want to fix here actually requires the Administrator bit set (CSS overhaul), and with Aichon de-opped I'm not confident we have current sysops experienced enough in that area to implement the changes I have in mind. I may be wrong. Also, I've done plenty of maintenance over the years (check my contribs, assuming history wipes have left much – actually, that reminds me…), but my boredom threshold is kinda low and I tend to get something “polished enough” and move on. As mentioned in my previous bid. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 15:59, 29 March 2011 (BST)

  • Against Since Revenant has been placed in Administration positions in 4 forums I am involved in, within 3 weeks each forum was hacked into and pretty much destroyed. There seems to be a common theme in which anyone that raises concerns about his "powerrush" appears to have their account deleted by "hackers" or thier email account spammed with emails from "Save the Tasmanian Devil society" and I beleive he simply gets involved in things simply to see what he can break or personally gain. His abuse of admin rights on the University of Twente Urban Terror server lead to the creation of the Cornholio account that has rampaged across the wiki. I can see this is a vieled attempt to get rights to ban MisterGame due to some falling out over Wotans Templar. --Rapture 23:28, 29 March 2011 (BST)

  • Weak Against - Would have probably been a vouch because I've seen some pretty good contribs from rev and he's a pretty long-standing member of the community but the above comments about his tenure as forum admin on several UD boards concerns me. I don't know if any of it is substantiated but I have to assume at least some of it is. I'd need to see some more positive contributions around the wiki before the trust would be enough to vouch. Maybe come back later with some more wiki-related projects to show if you're serious. ~Vsig.png 15:13, 30 March 2011
  • Vouch - Competent, dedicated, and friendly. I can see that his contributions to the wiki, considered alone, leave something to be desired, but I'm persuaded by his level of participation in other community projects that he is a valuable asset and, if given additional buttons, would press them well.--FT 19:12, 30 March 2011 (BST)
  • Weak Vouch - I can't really speak for the other forums but Rev's always been solid with regard to his mod/admin duties on Barhah.com, although he is not as active there as he was in years past. I think he has more than enough experience in wiki/technical magic things to be an asset to the wiki. That said, some of his actions on the wiki do give some serious pause and concern over his motivations / judgment. Yeah, while I can see him rocking out and becoming the world's greatest sysop, I can also seem him - I don't know --accidentally crashing the car or something over a cliff. But hey, it's a rental.

  • Against - Unfortunately, under the current circumstances I cannot vouch for you. You seem to be a very decent guy, which is far too rare around here and I think you do have the wiki's best interest at heart. However, I really find your lack of prior experience on this wiki too problematic. You have also been barely active during this bid, promising you will be more active when you get promoted also doesn't work for me. I'm also worried about you would handle yourself in sections like A/VB and A/M. In the end, I want to see more of you in action as a normal user. --Cat Pic.png Thadeous Oakley Talk 22:57, 11 April 2011 (BST)
    "Promising you will be more active when you get promoted also doesn't work for me". I browned 'em laughing. They never lynch children, babies—no matter what they do they are whitewashed in advance 01:02, 12 April 2011 (BST)
    Kid, if you think I'm lacking experience on this wiki, you obviously haven't checked my contribs. As for Administration pages, I've literally been using and discussing them for nearly 4 years now; mostly in IRC, as e.g. Karek, Hagnat or Grim can vouch. As I've said before, I prefer quality over quantity in contribs, and if I need to do a ton of repetitive edits I'll make a bot to do them, per the adage “work smarter, not harder”.
    That said, I respect your right to your opinion, and thank you for your courteous and considered response(s). ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 02:05, 12 April 2011 (BST)
    He has, I was there, I saw it. Also more active than most of the sysops we have now. --Karekmaps?! 03:22, 12 April 2011 (BST)

Ross and I have discussed Revenant's bid and we are promoting him. He's a long-standing member of the community who is trusted by pretty much everyone who has clicked "Stand Up" before, it seems. Good luck with your new position Rev. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 04:42, 13 April 2011 (BST)
