This page is for users to request System Operator status. The act of user promotion is restricted to those with bureaucrat status, and as such users will need to request user promotion here. System Operators and Bureaucrats cannot assign promotions unless the request has gone through this page.

Guidelines for System Operator Requests

Users who wish to request System Operator status (and users who wish to nominate other users for System Operator status) should note that before they can be considered the following guidelines should be met by the candidate:

  • Significant time within the community.
We define this as at least 6 months since the candidate's first edit.
Note: looking in a User's User contributions might give false results for this criterion, as the edit history is periodically purged on this wiki.
  • Significant activity within the community.
We define this as at least 250 edits in the past six months under the candidate's name.
Note: looking in a User's User contributions might give false results for this criterion, as the edit history is periodically purged on this wiki.
  • Prior interest in maintaining the community.
We define this as clear evidence that the candidate is already performing maintenance tasks and taking leadership roles on the wiki.
  • Desire to become a System Operator.
We define this simply as indicating in the candidate's request their desire for the position (Note that if a person is nominated by another user, the candidate in question should note their acceptance of the nomination).

If a user is highly exemplary in one criterion, a certain amount of leeway may be given with the other criteria.

Once the candidate satisfies these guidelines, the user is then subject to a community discussion. All users are asked to comment on the candidate in question, ask questions of the candidate, and discuss the candidate's suitability for becoming a System Operator. This is not a vote. It is instead merely a request for comments from the wiki community. This will continue for two weeks to allow all users an opportunity to voice their opinion regarding a candidate's qualifications for promotion. After two weeks, the Bureaucrats are responsible for announcing their decision within a reasonably short period of time. Users may continue to add their thoughts until the Bureaucrats announce their decision. The current amount of System Operators running should not influence your decisions when voicing your opinion.

Once the two weeks are up, the Bureaucrats will review the community discussion and make a decision based upon it. The user will be notified of the status of their request, and will be promoted should it appear that the community is willing to accept them as a System Operator.

Example Application

Example User

I've been around 3 months, and I've made to date 550 edits. As you can see [link here] and [link here], I've been in the leadership role attempting to create a new format for this page. I'd very much like to become a System Operator.

  • Vouch - I am willing to vouch for this user. -- Voucher 03:41, 23 Jan 2006 (GMT)
  • Against - Example User, I haven't seen any evidence of your work on the wiki. --Some user 19:01, 25 July 2006 (BST)
  • Vouch - Example User is the most active guy here. --Another user 19:01, 25 July 2006 (BST)
  • Abstain - I'm just not sure, but I don't want to say why for some reason. --Some other user 19:01, 25 July 2006 (BST)
  • Question - I just want to know what you think about this subject? --Yet another user 21:26, 4 April 2013 (BST)

Candidates Currently Under Community Discussion

User:DanceDanceRevolution

I'm DDR, merry christmas. I think you all suck.

I'm applying for sysop cause I said I would half-heatedly. Do I want to? Eh. Am I needed? Eh. Could I do the job? Eh, who couldn't?

Since I'm in the "spotlight" I might as well have a quick whinge about, while I like this place, I've begun to strongly dislike the people. In the years I was an op I commonly heard talk about how the wiki was a self-gratifying, shut-off wankfest where newcomers were treated like crap and people just sucked each other off. As one of the suckers, I never thought it true. But in the recent months my opinion has changed. Most of my examples revolve conveniently around Peralta. A newcomer joins the community, does great stuff and what? The thick walls of spooge covering him from the 'inner circles' of the wiki drives him away as the remaining UDWiki community treat him like a sack of shit and desecrate his corpse for any remaining semblance of dignity they can strip from him. He co-organises a whole event? Everyone blames him for it for not being token. Personally attack him until he claims responsibility, apologises to everyone and starts his entire character roleplaying from scratch. He helps out and applies for sysop? Community dances on his bid, fucking everything about and asking irrelevant questions, then answering irrelevant questions with more irrelevant answers and rendering his hard work at trying to make this place decent completely irrelevant. He withdraws? Make long wank speeches about how it's his fault and not everyone for treating him like shit.

Never seen the wiki so effectively eradicate one user who worked so hard, and over just one month. Good work guys.

Nevertheless, if I passed this I would probably actually come around here some time. And if you like doozies like the "roleplaying dumb" saga, I couldn't deny that my increased, drunken involvement in this 'community' would probably harbor more embarassing doozies like that. Whatever, I'm keen. Oh, or if you like watching someone stretching their authority to treat new, hard working users nice rather than like a spastic, I guess I'd do that too. Or going on big tantrums and yelling at Axe Hack until the sun goes down. Whatever alt he's behind. Oh, Karek too. Oh and I wouldn't delete the wiki. You all know me, too much of a wussy do-gooder, it ain't my style.

So whatever. A ZOMBIE ANT 11:15, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

  • He's a cunt every once in awhile, looking at our past history on here shows that pretty well. But then again, out of the current team, all have them have been cocks at some point or another, barring Shorts and Spidey, and that might simply be because of my lack of interaction with them. DDR usually does a bit of work when he can and while we may not always agree on things, he usually does pretty good representing the other side in our debates. UNTIL HE PLUGS HIS EARS LIKE A LITTLE GIRL WITH HIS SHITTY HIPSTER STACHE AND LOOKING LIKE HOUSE.--SA 11:42, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Question What the fuck is SA on about? --Ross Less Ness Enter Stranger... 16:06, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
    Dunno. I assumed he was just being SA. A ZOMBIE ANT 01:32, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Question You told us a lot about what the current team does wrong. What you haven't told us: What is it that you would do right that the current team doesn't? -- Spiderzed 16:39, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
    I'm assuming that the gist of it is that he won't behave like a monumental cunt, like some did on Peralta's bid. --Papa Moloch 01:47, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
    I was referencing the community more than the op team, but I'll have a crack at your Q anyway. Firstly, I'd be active. Actually, that's a lie. But I'd at least try. The wiki news page at the front still says "no news" 2 days after SA nominated himself for sysop. I have no doubt some of the ops (and users, no doubt) would have seen that. However, where users can get away with ignoring that stuff, being a sysop doesn't give one a license to pass on tasks onto regular users. Sysops are bound to maintaining this place in a decent fashion. I also wouldn't circumvent the sysop guidelines that have kept us in place for 5 years, only to permaban some little idiot on the wiki. And I certainly wouldn't defend the action in misconduct. Oh, and if someone drastically changes a protected page, or system message, for the worse, I wouldn't wait until the wiki cracked a shit and the editing user left before changing it back. I would have reverted it back to the proper revision straight off the bat and worked it from there. A ZOMBIE ANT 01:32, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

S to the mother fething A

"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)

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 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)
