2007 November Round

Since Vista asked for his own demotion, a new Bureaucrat position is open.

Voting ends: December 3rd

Eligible candidates

Dux Ducis

Well, I've been in UD since early-mid 2006 and an active wiki-member since October 2006. I've had my hand in many areas on the wiki including adding content to the help pages, pushing for template revisions and suggestions system revision, helping newbies with their suggestions and welcoming and mentoring many of the poor newbies. I also conduct the general maintenance of the clothes suggestions page, removing dupes and spam, while archiving the rest. I think my always-active involvement on the wiki would be a bonus to me being a 'crat. I've encountered frustration in the past with inactive 'crats, with issues and promotions not being resolved in a timely manner. If I'm promoted, I won't go inactive anytime soon and let the wiki slide. --Ducis DuxSlothTalk 07:36, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

  1. I think he's fit for the job. And if he isn't, it would be fun anyways! --Matthew Fahrenheit YRCT+1 11:50, 19 November 2007 (UTC)
  2. Dux, as an active yet quiet guy. --Karloth Vois RR 22:09, 19 November 2007 (UTC)
    Yeah, I have an aversion to drama :) The limelight isn't my style. I like to help in little nibble and bites, especially with the newbies.--Ducis DuxSlothTalk 09:00, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
  3. Vouch-what can I say.? I like this dude :D--Jellofun 03:27, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
  4. Vouch - He has this thing. Dunno what, but it'd make him a great 'crat.--Cap'n Silly T/W/P/CAussieflag.JPG 04:50, 24 November 2007 (UTC)
    vouch - He has much activity in the community and is a respectable person I think he is the one fit for the job.--Austin 18:02, 25 November 2007 (UTC) Banned vandal alt -- boxytalk • 01:32 26 November 2007 (BST)

The Dark and Scary Lord Grimch the First, Devourer of Souls

If you elect me as your next Tyrant Overlord i shall rule this wiki with an iron fist and plunge this wiki into an unending nightmare of death and suffering. Dissent shall swiftly be dealt with by Death Squads, the holiday of Christmas shall be wiped from history. I hereby pledge that if i am elected, i shall wash away this wiki with a tidal wave of blood and nightmares. Also, i reserve the right to randomly kidnap members of the community and perform dark experiments upon them, twisting and warping them into various affronts against creation. They said i was mad! MAD I TELL YOU! BUT I'LL SHOW THEM! I'LL SHOW THEM ALL!!!

In case you didnt notice, i was kidding. I dont care for the position of crat, ill leave this up as a joke. --The Grimch U! E! WAT! 04:51, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Yeth Marthter 'cos I always wanted to be a darklords minion... anyway I want to be there when the pitchfork weilding mob turn up to oust him ;) --Honestmistake 11:04, 19 November 2007 (UTC) Requested.--Karekmaps?! 15:38, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

  2. Vouch because he speaks the true feelings of the urban dead wiki community --People's Commissar Hagnat [cloned] [mod] 11:52, 19 November 2007 (UTC)
  3. Vouch Because a vote for Grim is a vote for an opressive tyrany of pain and sorrow that will last a thousand years--SeventythreeTalk 11:54, 19 November 2007 (UTC)
  4. Vouch - because Grimch will fulfill one of my deepest desires... uhm... i am referring to this, you bloody PERVERTS: "the holiday of Christmas shall be wiped from history." I believe. --WanYao 13:52, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

  6. Vouch- I need a tyrant overlord ruling my life.-- BKM 20:22, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
  7. Vouch- those who rule best always rule with an iron fist... right...--Zach016 03:05, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

I am around here since november 2005, have been promoted to moderator (SysOp, as we called them now) in April 2006. I am responsible for the improvement that led to our current suburb danger system, for the buildings danger report system, for the policy discussion system, had the idea for the suggestion system a year before it could have been implemented (it wasnt possible at the time due some mediawiki limitations). I try to defend free speech as much as possible (as long as people dont overdo this privilege). I try to defend our right for fun, even it breaks minor copyright issues. I try to preserve this wiki history, even if this means that we are going to have tons of half-made group pages.

  12. four out of five of my personalities prefer Hagnat over other brands. --Bullgod 07:09, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
  13. He's Brazilian Powered™ ! --ZaruthustraMod 09:16, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
  14. He's the first current sysop to take Copyrights seriously enough to help start the categorization of copyrighted images and then work toward the separation of community and user generated images, and the eventual creation of a document to gain permission from companies to use copyrighted images in an effort to protect urban dead and Kevan from lawsuits. That's the type of person I would prefer in charge of the wiki. --Akule School's in session. 01:23, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

I've been here since October 2006 became a sysop (technically I became a mod as this was before the name change) 4 months later. I did a ton of location blocks and have been helping keep an eye on the various administration queues but mostly I have been reorganizing the wiki's categories.I have brought Special:Uncategorizedpages to a record low and I will be working on Special:Uncategorizedcategories after I finish with fixing up the way location pages are categorized

    I think you need to strike your own vote. If someone else does it, they'll strike this one as the later in time. -- Atticus Rex mfu pif Δ 06:42, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

If elected I pledge to pursue an aggressive program of apathy towards the wiki. The level of irresponsibility I can bring to bear for this new position will be utterly unprecedented. No request will be too small to deny, no maintenance too mundane to shirk. I promise record blackouts in bureaucrat presence, fueled as they will be by the hydra headed beast of college, work, and alcohol. The net result of this bold program will be a wiki in utter chaos. Desperate users will scramble to create workarounds that will result in even the simplest task becoming sisyphean ordeals of bureaucratic inertia. Despotic sysops and powermongers will consolidate followings and argue with other factions over trivial policy debates. All of UD userdom will shatter into a thousand warring shards, heralding the end of productive cooperation for all time. If nominated, I will not run; if elected, I will not serve.

  1. If hired, he will not work -- Vista  +1  09:17, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
  2. Clearly the right man for the job.--Thari TжFedCom is BFI! 15:18, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
  3. Only those who do not want the job are suitable to fulfill it.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 22:19, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

At the current time, I have no interest in becoming a 'crat. However, I encourage anyone wanting to vote for me this time to consider voting for Vantar. --Z. slay3r Talk  19:02, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
