  • against - when he does manage to hang around he sucks DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 05:55, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Question - How many edits per week, for every week, do you plan on making, on average, if we choose to keep you? --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 06:01, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Against - Never did anything that would justify his antics, let alone his constant spurts of prolonged inactivity. -- Cat Pic.png Thadeous Oakley Talk 10:19, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Arguably, I've only been around for a month or two, but I have no idea who this is... :/ --Shortround 10:58, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Questions - How often do you actually check into the wiki these days? And are you still interested in doing this? ~Vsig.png 14:13, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
    There are sysops that are less active than Revenant. Have those ever got criticized for that? In my eyes Revenant is a pretty good. Generaloberst 00:00, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
    Yes they have but that wasn't criticism, it was a question; one meant for Revanent. Also learn to indent. ~Vsig.png 02:20, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
    Bwuh how to answer question not addressed to me DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 04:46, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
    I'd say “often enough”, but that's not as full an answer as this question deserves. I tend to look over it more often than I edit, if that helps; if there's nothing that demands my attention, I'll move on to other things and return at a later stage. Can be daily, can be weekly, though usually if something needs attention I'll get a ping somewhere. (For example, I saw this re-evaluation go up, but refrained from commenting until there was something to comment on.)
    I have had a few periods of prolonged absence during the year due to both medical reasons and life events, which I'm not going to elaborate on other than to say that the process of diagnosis and treatment has been proceeding well.
    And yes, I am still interested in doing this, mostly because a) so people can continue to come to me to get things done b) there are still things I want to get done from my to-do list when I first ran for sysop. Tongue :P ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 01:06, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Against - Short spurts of activity, followed by long bursts of inactivity, coupled with less than 150 edits in the last six months. Not a good record for a sysop. --AORDMOPRI ! T 14:59, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Vouch -        19:14, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Against - I never really did like his name. And personally just gives me the heeby jeebies whenever I see him on the wiki. That is to say, if I do see a post by him, which is not very common.--Krazymouse 04:28, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
    Did I happen to kill you and/or your/an allied group at some point? That tends to provoke this sort of reaction. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 01:11, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
    Of course!! I'm in Cobra! Durrhr.. But to be truthfully honest, I haven't seen you around the wiki lately with my usual wiki lurking skills. I have seen you alot before on the wiki of course since I have played UD for over 3 years, but as of late, I thought you dropped off the planet. Just sorta disappeared. --Krazymouse 01:07, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
    Wait, Cobra? The most I can recall having exchanged with you lot was some snarky words, which is all fun and games! And yes, I tend to drop in and out of visibility, but rest assured, I am always there… lurking… in the dark, waiting to come out… ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 05:27, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
    like when your a/re is on DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 08:58, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Against - I haven't been here for a large chunk of his term, but, quite a number of people were a bit hesitant to promote him back then (most of the sysop team at the time, for example). Not that he hasn't been helpful, but most of what he's been doing doesn't really need sysop powers, I think. Plus the inactivity. Correct me if I'm wrong. -- †  talk ? f.u. 13:08, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Against - I have a great deal of respect for Revenant in both his history with the community and his contributions, however with his activity of late its clear that he currently has too much on his plate to continue operating in his current status as a sysop. I would welcome him back when his schedule and demands on his time lessen however. --Sabanya 10:56, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Vouch - Helps out, would be better if it was less occasional. --  AHLGTG 17:21, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
    Does activity affect the quality of his edits, or only the quantity? Rhetorical. Less activity means less of a good thing, not the admittance of a bad. --  AHLGTG 03:08, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Vouch - As Animesucks.  Billy Club Thorton  T!  RR  20:06, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Against - Too little activity. As we did with Cheese back then in a similar situation, he just ramp up his contribs and re-apply then. -- Spiderzed 20:12, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
    That incident was fundamentally retarded. The sysop revolving door really just cheapens the entire process, if not the wiki. Look at how me and Ross handled Axe Hack's demotion request for more on this. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 01:06, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Against - Hasn't responded to questions or his talk page. The silence speaks volumes. ~Vsig.png 20:29, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
    probably because he is in the process of moving--THE Godfather of Яesensitized, Anime Sucks Yalk | W! U! WMM| CC CPFOAS DORISFlag.jpg LOE ZHU | Яezzens 00:09, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
    for 2 months? DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 10:58, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
    Ah. That sucks. I hate moving. I suppose I can go for a weak against, which is where I was at before asking the above questions. Rev is alright. Other than the goonsig thing and possible meatpuppetry during his crat bid, I don't think he's done anything without the wiki's best interests in mind. He's just never around and I'm not sure he wants this. If he's demoted and wants to come back later, I'd probably vouch for him if he's truly interested. ~Vsig.png 18:58, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
    I've been flat out, but I'm here now. Happy ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 01:06, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
    Ok you've sucessfully cojoled me into a vouch. Hopefully we see moar Rev these next 8 mos. ~Vsig.png 02:57, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Vouch- only because he asked for it on facebook --hagnat 01:26, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
    Tongue :P ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 01:31, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Vouch- IRL friend of Rev, and can definitely confirm that he is still incredibly interested in the UD community (he talks about it a lot). Can also confirm that absence seems to line up with health/house moving events. --Greatgreen 02:28, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
    Ohgods, I forgot you play(ed) UD. Also god damn it is hard to wiki on a phone. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 03:02, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Question 2 - You didn't know you were up for Re-Evaluation until I poked you in irc a few hours earlier. Why should I vouch for you? --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 04:09, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
    Incorrect; as I said above, I saw this re-evaluation go up, but there was nothing to respond to last I checked (which was why I thanked you for notifying me).
    As for why you should vouch for me? One reason, and one only: because you think I should remain a sysop. If not, don't. Simple. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 11:06, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
    I'm not sure if I approve of that semi-colon there. --  AHLGTG 03:08, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
    And that, grasshopper, is why you are not yet a member of the grammar police. Patience. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 05:24, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
    I disagree with it on the basis of its stylistic merit, which is crude and boorish. Harmmfph! Super commas ought to be used only with the use of commas in between each semicolon, as those commas may get confused in the list of things. --  AHLGTG 05:33, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
    Nice try, Rev. The only one that's even remotely applicable is the rule for separating independent clauses, but "Incorrect", by itself, is not an independent clause, given that it possesses neither a noun nor a verb. I suppose you could make an argument that "That is" is implied, in which case you'd have both a noun and a verb, but I think that's taking quite a bit of liberty with the language, would be considered slang at best, and dilutes clearly legitimate uses of the oft-misused semi-colon. You should've justified yourself on the basis of "just because" instead. :P Aichon 19:20, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
    Revenant is quite clearly a terrible person, and quite probably a monster. I don't think we should trust him (with semicolons, and everything else). --  AHLGTG 00:11, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Vouch - As long as I've known Rev, he's been reliable to get things done that need to get done. As such, I trust him at his word that he checks often even if his edit count seems low. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 06:45, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Vouch - But you have to come back REV! Promise?  CrunchyCake  T  Breakfast Club 07:40, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Vouch fully. Great man, always willing to help, is passionate about UD (even if he is on the wrong side) --Cyadora 17:12, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Against Mainly just to cancel CyAdora's vote. --Akbar 01:31, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Vouch His absences tend to end with "I just moved to a new country/continent/planet" or "I was hospitalized for tendachronitis multiplicitis", so that oughtn't count against him. Good at what he does on the wiki, as well. --DTPraise KnowledgePK 17:40, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Vouch - I'd rather have an organ grinder like Rev, than a load of click monkeys like thadeous.--Rapture 20:49, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

With Boxy going both ways, I've decided that the re-evaluation is Successful. There's a difference between inactive and lurking. We kept Swiers in post for absolutely years when he could have technically been dead, and like Axe before him I'd rather have a team including historically sporadic editors, rather than just me, vapor and spiderzed. That being said, if contributions fall even further I'd be more than willing to fire up the truly inactive sysop policy on him. Rev, consider this a warning.

As always I encourage more of you to run for sysop. We need fresh blood. Especially since Grim took all the black pudding away. --Rosslessness 17:31, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

lurking enough to miss his own a/re nice!. two words. use less DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 18:50, 31 January 2012 (UTC)
Use less what? Capitalization? Punctuation? ~Vsig.png 19:01, 31 January 2012 (UTC)
