This edit. His suggestion was already past two weeks of voting, it should've gone to the Rejected Undecided bin. The reason for the removal makes it look like a bad faith attempt to game the system (ie. withdraw it to make it unusable as a dupe). --Midianian¦T¦DS¦SP¦ 10:12, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Removed his entire nomination for sysops section and labeled it as a minor edit. While it was his own nomination I do believe that Iscariot should have refused the normal way and I am also pretty sure that unaccepted nominations are archived instead of just deleted.--Thadeous Oakley 16:37, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Not Vandalism. Everyone please do not nominate Iscariot, he has stated the people he would consider accepting a nomination from. Until he states otherwise, just don't do it. It really just shits up the admin pages as it's pretty obvious he won't accept it, and coming from me that's saying something. Don't do it.--Suicidal Angel, Help needed? 16:53, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Which is funny cause that means he does in fact qualify for rule 4 but is just trying to get an actual chance at duping the people that haven't seem his garbage.--Karekmaps?! 17:57, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
I can't help but wonder if someone is going to use the argument "but look at all the times he was nominated for sysop!" as a reason he should get it. It's rather devious.--– Nubis NWO 19:00, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

No reason to revert the edit unless it's vandalism, it just gives more of a reason to create another account. --  AHLGTG 23:56, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

You know, if we just ignore whatever new sock Izumi has (as long as it isn't doing anything bad), we won't have to deal with this stuff any more. Considering the ban that started all of this mess was mostly because Grim refused to see anything as anything else from straight vandalism or not. If he hadn't been such a hard-line prig, we probably wouldn't have had 63 alts of hers to deal with.--Suicidal Angel, Help needed? 00:30, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

"As long as it isn't doing anything bad". What, such as not making vandal alts like those below. Izumi has always been a "real" vandal, editing [[group pages, other people's posts, even after plenty of warnings, and then comes back after the ban and does the exact same thing again, and when she gets done for it, as she had to, she starts spamming the forum with dozens of alt accounts. She's not someone who we want back, given that the first bloody thing she did was vandalise the wiki again with throw away accounts.

Zink (talk | contribs | logs | block | IP Check | vndl data | discuss)

This is purely to provide information that this user is an alt of User:Novascotia/User:Zinker. This account was created round about the time of this case but it had not made any edits within the checkuser timeframe, so it could not be confirmed to be the same guy. Now that it has edited in the very recent past, I've compared the IP address to ones used by Nova and his socks and found them to be very, very similar making it very likely that this is the same person who controlled those other accounts.

Since the month ban has long since passed, its not ban evasion anymore. However, any further edits of a vandalistic (that sounds like a rather cool word) nature will receive a month ban and perma-vote since no warnings have been struck from the account. As I mentioned, this is not a vandal report, but rather providing information that may be needed later. -- Cheese 00:06, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

Well, according to Boxy, the account hadn't even been created then. Huh. Could he be wrong? :P --BFFs +SA+NSANSANSANSANSANSANSANSANSAN 4 EVA!!! 00:18, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

For continuing to troll admin pages with petty cases and his continued refusal to follow the process for submitting a report. -- Cheese 17:14, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Others have ignored process before, and haven't had anything happen to them. And if he gets V/B'd for petty cases, I expect Bob to get an escalation as well. That said, its not like we're too overloaded with work to simply just say NV and be done with it on the petty cases that have no basis. Anyway, Iscariot, please don't put something like that up. If you looked through previous promotion bid archives, you'd see a few other Sysops have put themselves up for a review on it. Precedent doesn't always have to be followed, but sometimes its a good idea.--BFFs +SA+NSANSANSANSANSANSANSANSANSAN 4 EVA!!! 22:20, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
Pretty sure Bob has been warned for this before himself. Him and J3D had a thing going here once, maybe you heard of it. He's filing a case he knows has no merit, thus why this got reported. Not to mention he's been talked to about such petty cases in the past too. --Karekmaps?! 08:07, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I read through it all. I kinda face palmed. I figured this would serve as a last chance to both of them about this, without screwing other sysops over by giving an actual ruling.--BFFs +SA+NSANSANSANSANSANSANSANSANSAN 4 EVA!!! 13:26, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Well, soft warn him then -- boxy talkteh rulz 00:23 8 February 2009 (BST)
I'm not going to soft warn him because I didn't soft warn Cyberbob for submitting a petty case either. It was more of a last chance (and being that it was said from my point of view, it would mean it was a last chance for both Iscariot and Cyberbob in my eyes. Someone else can feel the deserve another chance here or there, but I'm not giving any more slack with these petty cases), as I said. I wasn't ruling because I had just let Bob go unpunished for a petty case, and it'd look like I was showing bias. I am not. I simply stated my opinion, and showed what my further actions will be with cases like this from these users, while leaving other sysops to weigh in how they want, using my opinion how they want to.--BFFs +SA+NSANSANSANSANSANSANSANSANSAN 4 EVA!!! 06:27, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
So... he's been soft warned... without being soft warned. Well done -- boxy talkteh rulz 13:58 11 February 2009 (BST)
My point was that in any jump of the imagination he has been given far more chances than he should have, he's been soft warned for this in the past, he's been actually escalated for this type of thing in the past, he knows exactly why he shouldn't be doing it and what will happen if he does. Do we really need to give the guy who threatened to harass a newbie off the wiki if he didn't get his way in an arbitration case more leeway than we already have? --Karekmaps?! 02:27, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

This is one of two things.

  1. A user ignoring the process and posting a case without talking to the person or
  2. Another example in an obvious pattern of harassment.

The case is being presented as 1 which probably won't get a vandalism ruling. I would be very curious what results an actual case based on 2 would yield. However, it seems no one either has the desire to start the drama or has reached the point where they think he needs a permaban for the protection of the wiki. Until such time it seems like he will be nickeled and dimed down the VB road.--– Nubis NWO 21:04, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Vandalism - izzy knows very well that the page has been used by sysops to request evaluation of their positions and allow the community to vouch their trust to them after long periods in the cool guys club. Its a petty case which only serves to start drama. --People's Commissar Hagnat [talk] [mod] 21:13, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

User:Karek

Karek (talk | contribs | logs | block | IP Check | vndl data | discuss)

For this action.

Karek puts himself up for 're-promotion'. This is quite simply impossible. If we examine the words he uses, 'promotion' - "An advancing in rank or position" and 're' - " meaning back or again". Just so we are clear, it is impossible for Karek to be promoted again as he has never been demoted. He clearly knows and understands this from his opening statement, yet still puts up a completely pointless case. What purpose does the case serve given that Karek cannot be promoted?

If anyone else had placed a case on an admin page that served no purpose due to the result already being in effect they would be escalated for spamming up the admin pages with a pointless case. This is no different than bringing Amazing here to A/VB over an edit, putting a deleted page up for deletion or J3D going to A/DM and requesting demotion.

The only thing this serves is to take up space on an admin page, as the result will be meaningless. Karek should be escalated for this and the case immediately removed. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem! The Rogues Gallery!. <== DDR Approved Editor 01:48, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Not Vandalism, as he probably means reassessment instead of "re-promotion". Should he come here and say that what he was expecting was a promotion to a higher level other than 'crat, or is wanting to be demoted and re-promoted, I will change my ruling.--BFFs +SA+NSANSANSANSANSANSANSANSANSAN 4 EVA!!! 02:39, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

I wasn't aware that the title of the page he put the case on was Administration/Reassessment. Also, that sig serious causes a page break when viewing the differences, please to be templating or adding some spaces kthxbi. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem! The Rogues Gallery!. <== DDR Approved Editor 02:42, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

And yet we've done it at least three times in the past. Petty is as petty does and reporting for A/VB for this is pretty petty and appropriately ill-informed for a complaint from you. --Karekmaps?! 02:46, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

We've also had Wikigate and a coup attempt, should we have them as well? That page is for promotions bids, you cannot be promoted, therefore it has to be a pointless case to spam up the page. Basic logic might not enter in your hypocrisy. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem!

Not Vandalism, as there are less relevant comments on this page that I don't think require any administrative action.

But a friendly reminder to everyone, while it is only a guideline, the rest (not me or Nubis) of the Sysops team kindly asks you to place your less-than-urgent comments under a relevant header on the talk page.

Vandalizing the user page of the vandal below. --Midianian|T|DS|C:RCS| 15:43, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

I plead no contest. Guy below me there wanted people to look at his page to see his weird spam message, so I thought I'd get rid of it; as above, don't wait for a sysop to get involved etc. and just go back to reverting pages - which I did for some others of his, though someone beat me to the punch in a few of the cases. In retrospect, I probably should have just reverted his page to being blank - or course, I'm assuming creating the page was an act of vandalism to begin with. It just didn't occur to me at the time; my priority was getting rid of his vandalism. The fact that it's back there now on "his" page is just plain irritating. Just trying to cut through some red tape and keep the wiki clean-ish. --Blackboard 19:32, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Getting rid of the spam (that was repeated on many other pages) would count as reverting vandalism, even on the vandals user page (when it's an obvious permban candidate like this), however replacing it with your own message, especially the abuse ("CRAP") was not a wise move, and can indeed be seen as vandalism, as you seem to understand -- boxy talkteh rulz 00:44 2 February 2009 (BST)
