SA

"You two plotting, heartless, maniacal, smarmy little nigglers are a disgrace to anonymous internet dickheads around the world. I fucking pray neither of you shit monkeys ever end up in a position of any real authority or have the outcome of another human being's life placed in your sweaty little hands because you fuckers don't deserve an ounce trust. Not one ounce."

"And then SA chimes in on the talk page, full of mockery and spite, which would be one thing. But then he goes the extra mile and shakes Dawgjz down for cash! WTF? The fact that SA is a 'sop here, voted to restrict Dawgjz editing privilege, and then took his money to make the problem go away is paramount to fucking extortion."

--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 14:17, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

I never did get any money from that whole ordeal, in case anyone was curious. And yes, I will go that extra mile to please.--SA 10:23, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

HOLY SHIT LOOK AT THIS MOTHER FUCKING BID.HOLY FUCKING CRAP. LOOK AT THIS BADASS BID. SA WANTS TO HAVE SOME FUCKING BUTTONS UP THERE, AND IT'S TIME TO VOTE FOR HIM. SEE LOOK AT THIS. HE HAS LIKE FUCKING 9000 VOUCHS CAUSE HE'S FUCKING POPULAR. NO "AGAINST" HERE MOTHERFUCKERS THAT'S JUST NOT AN OPTION. LOOK, SA IS THE CHOSEN ONE, HIS TALK PAGE IS BLUE CAUSE YOU CAN'T FUCKING STICK TO CONVENTIONAL COLORS IF YOU ARE SO FUCKING AWESOME. BUCKETS OF HORSE CUM. NOT SURE? WELL THEN CHECK HIS MOTHER FUCKING USERPAGE IT'S LIKE THE MOST CONFUSING PIECE OF SHIT YOU WILL EVER SEE. YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE COOL GUYS DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TIME, THEY JUST WANT TO FUCK LIKE THERE'S NO TOMORROW. Vouch--Orange Talk 02:22, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Damn I'm good.--SA 17:56, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

No but seriously, edit summaries are awesome.--SA 17:56, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

Also, I'm still pleasantly surprised I was able to register SA as a name. I figured such a simple one would have been gone a long time ago.--SA 18:02, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

Also Someone should fix that.--SA 18:02, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

Fix what? The only thing I see is that the last ban should probably be moved up higher in the list, but otherwise it all looks accurate to me. Aichon 22:54, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
Exactly why you failed this test. My SA account wasn't listed there until Karke did it.--SA 01:34, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
Meh, he did it before I saw it, and I've been sick for almost a week now, so I plead illness as an excuse. Also, it's not like those sections are exhaustive anyway (and thank God too, since otherwise they would be horrible to maintain). They tend to get added to as the need arises. Aichon 02:12, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
No shit? I'd have never guessed that people don't actively add to that fuckhueg page unless they absolutely had to. ;)
Also, I've been thinking of splitting it. That page is stupid huge. Your thoughts?--SA 09:36, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
That I don't want to be the one to fix all the broken links. Also, I seem to recall there being a discussion over this in the past, with me supporting your side but being convinced the other side was right for a reason I can't remember now. Aichon 23:55, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
We wouldn't have to fix broken links if we just have the main page as a link holder for the split pages. You know, have everything link to it but then have the sub pages linked on it for us to click through. Or if we simply pulled all of the serious vandals that are perma'd out and placed them in their own page it would cut down on size.--SA 21:04, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
I was more referring to links that went to specific entries. For instance, {{vndl}} which we have on every A/VB filing from the last few years links to that specific person's VD entry, but that template will require some serious retooling if we were to institute a change of this sort, and all of the previous A/VB cases would either need to be updated to fix them or else would be far less useful than they are now. It's not a deal-breaker, but it is an issue that needs to be considered. Aichon 22:24, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Ach, I forgot that it called the data directly from VD. Oh well, maybe I should leave the issue alone then. :C --SA 22:34, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Did we ever get collapsable tables working? Perhaps that's a better way of making vandal data less of a pain to view. ~Vsig.png 22:40, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
I was looking at that convo on that one page that I can't remember where I found it at and I think it relied on a css coding issue being implemented properly on Kevan's side. I don't quite remember.--SA 22:53, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
UDWiki talk:Administration. Yeah, would take some CSS updates, which usually translates to "won't work on our wiki". Something is terribly wrong with UDWiki and CSS updates never work. ~Vsig.png 23:22, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
The "nothing works on our wiki" doesn't stop at CSS, you know.--SA 23:29, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
It's all just an issue with a broken update. If Kevan can fix that one issue, we could do a whole hell of a lot of stuff (e.g. update the main page with those drop-down menus we were discussing). Aichon 00:01, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

I also may have deleted the wiki last time.--SA 11:20, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Against - Definitely does not meet any activity criterion, with fewer than a hundred edits in the last year. Also major activity gaps, including no edits from June to August and none in October. I understand you've been a sysop before, but I'd like to see some more constructive activity before re-promotion. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 18:37, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Question - (1) didn't you once try to delete the wiki? (2) If elected sysop, will you pledge to do it again? --Shortround }.{ My Contributions 20:05, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
    I did not try to delete the wiki, I merely tested Yon's capabilities as a sysop in a rogue sysops situation. He scored averagely. Also, there needs to be more rogue sysops training sessions, yes.--SA 01:34, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Question - Please enlighten us to your thoughts on ALIM --Ross Less Ness Enter Stranger... 20:17, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
    It's okay, I guess. There's only so many penis jokes to be read before you get bored, you dig?--SA 01:34, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Question - Can your name be spelled AS instead of SA? --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 20:56, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
    It could, but then it's encroaching on Anime Sucks' territory.--SA 01:34, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
  • MEGAVOUCH - This wiki needs more sysops banning each other while pages are getting deleted. Aichon 22:54, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Question - Who? ~Vsig.png 23:41, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
    Some old fart. Probably a massive dick head.--SA 01:34, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Vouch Is it possible to just skip sysop and give SA crat? --K 23:48, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
    No thanks.--SA 01:34, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Boss Vouch - One of the best in his heydey, leader of cabals, now he's all washed up and shit like me I just wanna see him shed awesomeness in the spotlight. A ZOMBIE ANT 10:19, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
    I'm almost positive I had the edit window open before you made that comment. Has edit conflicts been changed in the way they're handled?--SA 10:24, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
    Do you mean you were able to add a comment in a bunch of text and it should have been an edit conflict? Dunno my bro, happens from time to time. Did it to Cyberbob once he wtf'd A ZOMBIE ANT 10:29, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
    Mang, I don't even know now. :/--SA 10:38, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
    Yes, they have. If I remember correctly Mediawiki sections text by blocks, usually with regex looking for things like appropriate bullets and edit conflicts now require conflicting blocks. It's a lot more lenient of a system on the users. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 11:28, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
    Oh, awesome. It was bugging me pretty good for a bit, then I decided to make some dinner and promptly forget. Also, awesome about not having to bitch nearly as much about conflicts.--SA 11:31, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
  • MOTHERFUCKING AGAINSTalready proved himself to be untrustworthy of the position. total lack of activity. plus his facebook posts are just too fucking annoying. fuck you and your bandwagon. -- HEY! HANDS OFF MAH BOOBS!   bitch   COBRA!  אמת11:37, 24 December 2012
  • Against - Perhaps I should start a new promotion category called "joke" but then of course never bother to finish it. Anyway, this bid is a joke, and not even a funny one at that, albeit neither was my first sentence. Also, what I said on Charlie's bid counts for you too. --Thadeous Oakley Talk 20:06, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
    I applaud Thad's comment, with its insightful self-deprecating tone. --Ross Less Ness Enter Stranger... 20:18, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
    In all seriousness, if you really want it, then go for it, I guess it would live the place up a bit. --Thadeous Oakley Talk 21:43, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
    Bring it, nukka. I got dis ops shit, all day erry day. Also, I just saw nothing but account creation on the RC. That looks bad.--SA 10:37, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
    Also, you used charlie's IRL name on the internet you are a bad person. Are you one of those mysterious people in the UD friends group I don't know who you are?--SA 10:51, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
    No, I've never had a facebook account. I just happened to pick up his name within all these years of wiki interaction. --Thadeous Oakley Talk 17:19, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
    Sidebar convo, but for a long while, I thought DDR was Josh McCormick because of something that was said on Groove Theory. Turns out JM was comparing Groove Theory to the game Dance Dance Revolution rather than speaking of himself in third person narrative. ~Vsig.png 18:00, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Ouch. For hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee 21:46, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Vouch - Who the fuck is Charlie, and I know where you live.--THE Godfather of Яesensitized, Anime Sucks Yalk | W! U! WMM| CC CPFOAS DORISFlag.jpg LOE ZHU | Яezzens 05:36, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
    Charlie is on FB and he's a stupid hipster aussie. Also, the part about knowing where I live is probably true. Shazbot.--SA 10:13, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Against
    Apparently it IS an option, who knew?
    In all seriousness however anyone who has attempted to extort money for favors as sysop, even in jest, is in my opinion not fit for the intended level of probity of the post.Parson Johanas 23:33, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
    If it makes you feel better, he offered money before I or anyone else asked for it. "Guys I have not played Urban Dead in years,at least 2. All i am trying to do is to get my name removed from here. That is all. I will pay $ to do so. I just need it done. When you google my name and urban dead you get 3 hits. Any help would be appreciated and I would hope some of you could have some empathy for my situation. the head hunter who i went to found my name here at urbandead and all over the brian keene board, etc. it makes me look like a tool to a would be employer. i am not trying to bug anyone. would just appreciate some help Dawgjz 03:55, 3 November 2009 (UTC)"--SA 23:49, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
    (concerning the edit conflicts over this vetting) Please be an arbies... pleeeaaase be an arbies!--THE Godfather of Яesensitized, Anime Sucks Yalk | W! U! WMM| CC CPFOAS DORISFlag.jpg LOE ZHU | Яezzens 05:52, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Vouch even if he was occasionally slow with crat business. Linkthewindow  Talk  16:31, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Against - SA is a lovable lug, but he's too unpredictable -- boxy 15:14, 3 January 2013 (BST)


Pester pester mumble mumble 2 weeks or some shit.--SA 05:27, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

I've pestered the other guy appropriately and we'll get back to you in a bit. Aichon 07:16, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

After extensive deliberation, Ross and I have concluded that the sysop team can't handle your awesomeness, SA, so your promotion bid is not a success. A bit more seriously, I do not feel comfortable giving you back the buttons after how you went out with a bang last time, given that you haven't been back long enough to prove that you can be trusted with them again. I'd be willing to reconsider my stance if there was broad community support for your promotion, but there does not appear to be that sort of support at this time. You know that I love having you around and think you do add something awesome and unique to the wiki (and it's already been beneficial having you back in the little time you have been back), but there's no way I can hand over the buttons to you until you can convince folks here that you're able to be trusted with them again, and that'll take time, unfortunately. Aichon 16:00, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

I don't remember doing anything beneficial, I won't lie.--SA 17:02, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
Sysop conspiracy to stop SA getting crat again??? --Shortround }.{ My Contributions 20:26, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
That's abs-...actually a good point!--SA 00:19, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
