Since it's a holiday weekend, I figured I'd start the discussion a bit early. Clearly I'm in favor of a promotion, and it would seem the community is as well, I believe. Aichon 15:24, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

  • DDR has raised concerns about Bob being another Shortround to happen. I have checkusered around, but found nothing that could suggest such a thing.
  • Kirsty has raised the concern that Bob should be protected from himself, but this isn't really our job as crats.
  • Also, Bob has made a minor mistake when he failed to archive his A/DE policy. This one is the strongest counter-argument I can come up with, and I am the devil's advocate in this one.
Bob had very good answers for my hypothetical Cornholioo Permaban Appeal scenario, which contained both a lot of wikilaw technicalities and situations without a clear One True Answer. He had caught all of the former, and had good reasoning for the latter.
tl;dr: Short of someone bursting dramatically through the window right at the minute that my finger crawls towards the Promote button, shouting "STOP! HEAR ME! HEAR ME!" and then providing Shocking New Evidence™ that Bob is actually Cornholioo, we should have another sys-op next week. -- Spiderzed 16:00, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
Dramatic change of circumstances. See A/DM. -- Spiderzed 01:25, 1 April 2013 (BST)
You know what you done you yak-fucker you. ~Vsig.png 02:04, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
Dramatic change? I'll say! Aichon 04:31, 1 April 2013 (BST)
DILDO!-- HEY! HANDS OFF MAH BOOBS!   bitch   COBRA!   אמת 04:57, 2 April 2013
Time's up now, and no new counter-arguments have come up. I'd say Bob's promotion is due. -- Spiderzed 17:14, 2 April 2013 (BST)
I agree. I'll let you process it since I was the one that put it forward. Aichon 20:29, 2 April 2013 (BST)

love your work

love what you have done with the FU recruitment ad but just wanted to let you know that part of it gets cut off when it's put in the recruitment page,so you may wanna resize it a bit....--PayneTrain 14:39, 12 April 2013 (BST)

I see nothing being cut off. Please give me a screenshot and tell me in which browser and on which resolution you have produced this error. -- Spiderzed 14:46, 12 April 2013 (BST)
oh,sorry i had zoomed my page,that's why it looked cut off.....sorry for the trouble--PayneTrain 10:14, 13 April 2013 (BST)

Been too long

Sally it's been at least a year since we murdered each other, it was so nice to see you again. Sorry about my group tags, I've been retired from the ACC for a long time. Now I just help my friends and PK people, pking seems to be the only real fun in UD these days. Let's not murder each other and instead makes the streets run red with the blood of the innocent. --Xan2020 04:21, 13 April 2013 (BST)

Pleading for my mercy is one thing. Pleading for my mercy and daring to lay your dirty hands on me at the same time is another. Fortunately for you, I have more important matters. Dagobah was just a place I was passing by. --Sally A. Summers i Ω i 18:20, 15 April 2013 (BST)
Well look at it this way, we're even. You got me once this month, I got you once this month, we're even. I didn't plead for mercy either, I was rather amused, mainly at the fact that people still play UD. I admit I missed you, you made the ACC more fun. Now though I left the ACC, that group is dying. Now I help my friends in the PK group Bad Company. Hope to see you around. --Xan2020 21:41, 15 April 2013 (BST)


Thought about VBing him early in the process, but didn't see a point. Anyway, obvious answer is obvious. Disagree at your peril. Aichon 20:52, 16 April 2013 (BST)

After some in-depth analysis of the community discussion, observation of the flight of the common eurasian woodcock and a reading of the intestines of Dhavid Grohl, all auspices agree that the sole legitimate verdict is Trolololo. -- Spiderzed 21:51, 16 April 2013 (BST)
As far as I can tell Karloth hasn't actually accepted the nomination, so yeah, this. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 12:14, 19 April 2013 (BST)
Begone, lowly peasant! Important crat bznz is conducted in this space. -- Spiderzed 14:30, 19 April 2013 (BST)
So, you catch the game last night? Aichon 17:10, 19 April 2013 (BST)

You're invited!

GASNWO.jpg mmmm juicy brains
Aha! Oh-hohoho.

-.- 02:10, 29 April 2013 (BST)

Crom laughs at your feeble invitations. -- Spiderzed 17:13, 29 April 2013 (BST)
I don't know who Crom is but I posted an alliance request on Cobra forum. If you were interested, of course. -.- 21:24, 2 May 2013 (BST)
Their chief is Crom. He dwells on a great mountain. What use to call on him? Little he cares if men live or die. Better to be silent than to call his attention to you; he will send you dooms, not fortune! He is grim and loveless, but at birth he breathes power to strive and slay into a man's soul. What else shall men ask of the gods? -- Spiderzed 21:36, 2 May 2013 (BST)
OK well, we'll talk about it on your forum(: -.- 21:41, 2 May 2013 (BST)
LMAO!--PayneTrain(NWO/FU) 15:18, 20 May 2013 (BST)

Having second thoughts?

Eyebrow raise ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 08:55, 20 May 2013 (BST)

Nope. I just had forgotten to hit Enter first after entering Aichon's name into the input field. -- Spiderzed 15:12, 20 May 2013 (BST)


Yeah, no. Criteria. Fails. --Rosslessness 23:06, 28 May 2013 (BST)

There is the selling point of him being a former sys-op. Apart of that, I come up with nothing, and it looks like I am the advocatus diabolus in this bid. -- Spiderzed 20:27, 29 May 2013 (BST)


Broad community support, no real objections from me. --Rosslessness 18:18, 16 June 2013 (BST)

The low activity is something that has been adressed several times, and something that needs to be said again in the A/RE summary. Other than that I see no objection. -- Spiderzed 18:23, 16 June 2013 (BST)
Yeah, I think it's always going to be an issue to some extent, and frankly I wasn't even sure if I should be sticking around as a sysop until someone reminded me recently of why I did it in the first place: to help people when they needed it.
A lot of the support is basically personal rather than based at all on wiki stuff, but ultimately I tend to be of the opinion that as long as someone is more help than hindrance that they're worth retaining. Whether that applies in this case is, thankfully, not up to me to decide.
*shrugs* My 5¢. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 14:55, 17 June 2013 (BST)


More like, there's-no-way-I'd-promote-him-nat,

am I right? --Rosslessness 23:02, 24 June 2013 (BST)

I wouldn't be so fast to dismiss him out of hand - among the joke vouches, there seem to be a few serious ones. Support is however much too mediocre to overturn his lackluster fulfillment of criteria. The announcement not to want to step up his contribs doesn't do much to convince me to be favourable on this bid either. -- Spiderzed 22:14, 27 June 2013 (BST)
So, the consensus is no? -- Spiderzed 12:47, 29 June 2013 (BST)
So, can we finally put that bid to rest and declare him as unsuccessful? -- Spiderzed 23:10, 3 July 2013 (BST)

Its not that i wont be more active. I am watchful in here, periodically checking RC for something to do. And even if i *did* increased my activity, there wouldnt be much for me to do which would ever make me onto the voting guidelines until i lost interest in this thing i am into right now (damn u, ADHD)... unless i went hardcore mode, which i dont plan to. Wish i had seen this chit chat before, but we were in the middle of something big here in brazil :P --hagnat 01:24, 4 July 2013 (BST)


retain --Rosslessness 16:58, 28 June 2013 (BST)

Are you sure? Give it some thought. Take your time. Aichon 17:03, 28 June 2013 (BST)
