Spidey, you're up. Gordon 00:00, 27 October 2012 (BST)

Yaddayadda, more than 50 edits since last A/RE, yaddayadda, plan to continue. With these trivial points sorted out, feel free to shoot your questions. -- Spiderzed 00:18, 27 October 2012 (BST)
  • Question- What do you plan to do in the immediate future that warrants/requires your continued position as Sysop? ValorGigo 00:37, 27 October 2012 (BST)
    I plan to continue what I already do best - to be continually around, whack the weeds without slacking, and add a neutral, just answer to any drama that comes up. I've never went out of my way to become a sysop, or have created any personality cult - my first (and immediately successful) bid wasn't even opened by myself. The community deemed what I do good enough to grace me with sys-op powers, and I will continue just doing my thing as long as the community deems that thing worthy of being augmented by sys-op powers. I never offered more, but I would never ever be satisfied with less. -- Spiderzed 00:48, 27 October 2012 (BST)
  • Vouch - Anyone who spends even 5 minutes looking at recent changes can see that Spidey is one of the most active sysops and wiki janitors we have. He gets on with the spambot killing grunt work and has a great understanding of wikilaw should that ever be needed. Gordon 00:40, 27 October 2012 (BST)
  • Question - What is your favorite part of being a sysop? And your least favorite? Bob Moncrief EBDW! 01:10, 27 October 2012 (BST)
    The favourite part? I can get more done than I could as a regular user, and can FF no-brainer tasks like speedy deletions without creating work or someone else. The least favourite part? Most of the drama, although we have become very quiet in that regard in the last few months. -- Spiderzed 03:52, 27 October 2012 (BST)
    Vouch, thanks! Bob Moncrief EBDW! 15:27, 27 October 2012 (BST)
    I always figured we were opposites, this just confirmed my suspicions.-- Cat Pic.png Thadeous Oakley Talk 17:54, 27 October 2012 (BST)
  • Vouch - a stable and helpful op. SZ gets my thumbs up. Except try and keep the April Fool's jokes off admin pages in future, my fragile, humourless heart can barely manage them. A ZOMBIE ANT 01:29, 27 October 2012 (BST)
  • Question --Open the Box Org XIII Alts 01:35, 27 October 2012 (BST)
    If a woodchuck could chuck wood, he would chuck as much wood as he could. -- Spiderzed 03:52, 27 October 2012 (BST)
    In light of this response, I may need to reconsider my stance. Aichon 04:07, 27 October 2012 (BST)
  • Vouch - I thought about asking a question, but that would be greedy and pointless of me, since I already know what I think in this matter. Aichon 02:07, 27 October 2012 (BST)

  • Question Looking at the up and coming wikizens, is there anyone you think could be a potential sysop of the future? --Ross Less Ness Enter Stranger... 11:59, 27 October 2012 (BST)
    I've seen quite a few wikizens coming and going who could have become sys-ops, but haven't grabbed the opportunity when they had it. Of the currently active users, I think the following could get there:
    • Bob Moncrief - Constantly around, constantly doing things, constantly involved in issues of the week (like the sidebar disussion currently), and not creating artificial drama and work. He's not quite there yet, but if he keeps it up, I am fairly confident about him.
    • MHSStaff - He might not be new, but he knows his wiki stuff and always tinkers on stuff. He'd would probably need to step up his game a bit to have a chance in A/PM, but he could get there with little extra effort. And what he does now would be perfectly sufficient from then on, as the sys-op seat is hard to climb on, but also hard to fall from once you got there.
    • Vapor - Should _never_ have requested demotion. He has no buttons, and still gets more stuff done than Boxy, General and Rev combined, so prediction of activity should never have been his reasoning.
    • DDR - I was never the greatest fan of his sys-opping, and am not up to today. That being said, he knows the ropes and still sticks around, so whenever the Getting Shit Actually Done Ratio (workload divided by sys-op hibernation) becomes too terrible, his name will be one to be tossed around, and that rightfully so.
    That would be my current run-down. It's lighter on really new users than I would like to, but with such a volunteer job that requires you to be wrong in the head, and with a smaller and smaller pool each year, we have to grab who we can. -- Spiderzed 16:14, 27 October 2012 (BST)
    Yeah. I totally have like no desire at all to be a sysop. Bob would be solid though. Just saying.-MHSstaff 18:12, 27 October 2012 (BST)
    Yeah, same here. Predictability of activity (something I obviously was incorrect at guessing) was really only part of my demotion request. Mostly, I just disliked being a sysop after my one year of it. Barring some mass sysop disappearance or a Rev coup, don't expect a future bid from me. I doubt you'd want someone that hates banning bots or researching precedents as a sysop, anyway. ~Vsig.png 18:22, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
    I'm also going to jump in here and say that I am not up for being a sysop yet, as I'm working like crazy on my BA thesis through April. After that, when I become highly unemployed, we'll see. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 19:38, 27 October 2012 (BST)

  • Question - How much wood can a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 16:10, 27 October 2012 (BST)
    A woodchuck will only chuck certain wood, likely that which is found in their natural, prairie habitat. Therefore, the lack of trees on the prairie is quite closely related to the chucking of wood performed by these wood-chucking woodchucks. -- Spiderzed 17:08, 27 October 2012 (BST)
    Congratulations. You've passed the first barrier. Question 2. Do you like Mudkips? --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 18:00, 27 October 2012 (BST)
    I like Mudkips a lot. Mudkips are very useful creatures. When you see a skyscraper, and want to know how high it is, a Mudkip will be a very useful creature to have at hand. You just ride the elevator to the roof, toss the Mudkip over the railing, and count the seconds until you hear the splatting. Seconds² times 4.905 will give you a good estimate in metres. Of course, to reduce the risk of experimental error I recommend to use at least a dozen Mudkips. -- Spiderzed 18:15, 27 October 2012 (BST)
    Hm... *looks at Spidey with a funny look while jotting something down on a clipboard* --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 23:24, 27 October 2012 (BST)
  • Vouch - Decent enough, and hey, I was the one who made him indirectly sysops in the first place. So better to be consistent than wrong I guess! -- Cat Pic.png Thadeous Oakley Talk 17:54, 27 October 2012 (BST)
  • Vouch -Does a lot of the bitch-work on the wiki. Also a major contributing factor in the on-going, tragic genocide of the spambots. Poor spambots. :( -MHSstaff 18:12, 27 October 2012 (BST)
  • Vouch --AORDMOPRI ! T 20:00, 27 October 2012 (BST)

After a brief discussion (very brief), Rosslessness and I have decided to rule that Spiderzed's re-evaluation was a success. Aichon 14:47, 4 November 2012 (UTC)
