Candidates still requiring vouches

I want to be promoted to do something usefull on the wiki. I didn't know how to do this...So at least I got your attention right?

Candidates currently under community discussion


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

DDR says he wants to step down after his 'crat term expires, to ensure he has no excuse we need at least another sysop so he can't renege on his word again.

Aichon does stuff. He speaks computer. And he'll be a more tyrannical overlord than Grim ever was. Vouch for him or your names will be added to the guest list for the new regime's holiday camps in Poland.

He'll be along shortly to confirm all this himself.... maybe.... -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem! The Rogues Gallery!. <== DDR Approved Editor 02:49, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

I'll accept the nomination, but, in the interest of complete honesty, I want to make a few things clear. I may be killing any chances I have, but I don't mind, because...
  1. I'm not nominating myself, nor did I ask for this.
  2. I intend to perform pretty much the same way I do now, though I'll chip in a bit with the admin chores.
Basically, if I'm promoted, you can expect more of the same from me. I'm just a guy helping out around here for fun, and that's not gonna change. Real life keeps me busy quite often, but I have no issues with helping out on sysop stuff when I can. To be clear though, I'm not interested in having this become a major, time-sucking obligation, nor am I interested in having the things I've been doing out of good will until now suddenly become things that are demanded and expected of me regularly, if that makes sense. I'm also not interested in getting caught up in whatever politics are going on here. I think for myself and speak for myself alone.
I don't want people to go into this with unreasonable expectations of me, but, if everyone is okay with the stuff I've said, then great. If not, I'll be happy to answer questions, and I won't take the "against" votes personally, since I wasn't looking for the promotion in the first place. Aichon 03:36, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
Objection, your honour! The candidate is reading from a prepared statement. Such things are against the rules of this kangaroo court, just not cricket and seriously reduce the potential mirth. I move that the statement be stricken and that the candidate be forced to make a new statement entirely in Death Rattle. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem! The Rogues Gallery!. <== DDR Approved Editor 03:39, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
Objection! This objection was clearly planned in advance in the event that Aichon had prepared an objectable speech in acceptance of the vote for wiki sysop. Objecting to objections might serve no object purpose, but my objection objects to a clearly objectable objection which might convince others to object to this clearly non-objectionable vote. Object object object.--Shank Case 03:42, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
Objection, your honour! Shank smells funny. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem! The Rogues Gallery!. <== DDR Approved Editor 03:44, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

    I agree. It is evil. Just like various vegetables and people who insist in pursuing miming as a profession. Aichon 03:46, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
    I find your 13 yr old girl type humor disturbing. Also, Macs are gay. Fag. --Sonny Corleone DORIS I jizzed in my pants pr0n 22:51, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Assuming he accepts, I approve. Consistently helpful, high level of proficiency with all things wiki and familiarity with the operations of UD Wiki in particular – plus he's a good guy. User:Revenant declines to disclose whether he was paid for this endorsement. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 03:22, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Against - Uses a mac, also likes animu --/~Rakuen~\Talk Domo.gif I Still Love Grim 03:23, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
    Says the guy who goes by a name that means "paradise" in Japanese and was a word that played prominently in the Wolf's Rain anime series. But still, there's no arguing with facts, and if you object on that basis, I have no problems with that. But I'll laugh at you when you're not looking. Aichon 03:46, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
    I slept with your mother Trebek! --/~Rakuen~\Talk Domo.gif I Still Love Grim 04:00, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
    Also, the only good animu was Rurouni Kenshin. If you disagree then I'll double against you.--/~Rakuen~\Talk Domo.gif I Still Love Grim 04:10, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
    Kenshin is on my to-do list. And if you want to see how I rate various movies and series, check here. Aichon 04:21, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Against - I descriminate against Mac users. --TripleU 03:28, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
    I'm an equal opportunity computer user. I give PCs every opportunity to perform, and they consistently fail to do so. :P
    In all seriousness though, I'm actually posting this from my Mac...booted into my copy of Windows 7 Pro. What can I say? Steam rocks. Aichon 03:46, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
  • vouch - so what if he uses a mac? -- Emot-argh.gif 03:38, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Vouch-I'm hoping that vouching for him will cause him to consider helping me make my user-page wicked stylish, and assist me if I ever find myself facing the wrathful scorn of Iscariot. And he seems to know how to shape the internet and cause it to do his bidding. Although, he hasn't played the original Fallout's. I'm really not aware of the scope of a sysop's responsibilities, I might as well be vouching for the Belmullet sheep commissioner. --MikhailKalashnikov 04:41, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

    And yet you're the only thing that makes the inclusion of the word almost utterly and emphatically correct. -- 08:31, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

    Don't flatter yourself. Not even on my worst days can I ever fit below the standards you set for yourself. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 14:54, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
    Ah, fuck it, I'll just voice "against" you when the time comes, I'm not going to have yet another retarded discussion with you just because of your insecurity. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 16:01, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
    Oh ouch, you start it then can't stand by your own convictions and I'm the one that insecure, but of course. -- 00:37, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Vouch - <kool-aid> OH YEAH ! </kool-aid> Chief Seagull talk 09:12, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Question Because I always do. Which area of the wiki do you feel needs most improvement? Oh and Universal Healthcare is pure win. As is the idea of Obama hunting down old people with a helicopter and snipering them in the face. Which I believe is some peoples definition of universal healthcare. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 09:13, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
    Honestly, I think a big issue right now is that a lot of information is scattered around a million different places, some of which is up to date but much of which is not (there's also a related issue of important information being in difficult to find locations). It's confusing for newcomers and confusing for many veterans of the wiki as well, from what I've seen. While I'm not promising to go through and clean all of them up, I do think that working on centralizing various pieces of information using templates that can be included wherever applicable may be something that needs to be done eventually. Aichon 20:49, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
    Question give me a couple of real life examples and you'll get my vouch. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 22:32, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
    Sure. The big one that stood out to me immediately (simply because it's very important to newbies and has major issues) was search rates, since they are scattered all over, though templates are probably not the answer for them, so much as simply centralizing the efforts and standardizing the output in some manner. Policy and guideline documentation could use work, since some guidelines are only ever stated in a notification box on a single page, while others are stated in multiple places that don't always state things in plain English or even in a consistent manner. In terms of things that might be helped by templates a bit more than those examples, it might be possible to include building statuses in the various maps that are around and simplify the suggestion process (it's a mess right now). I'm sure there are plenty of other ways to improve things, but I'm speaking off-the-cuff here. Aichon 00:17, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

  • Vouch - While perusing the wiki to check the extent of current drama I stumbled upon this promotion. While reading it, I clicked on the link up yonder that Aichon posted about anime and it lead me to something I have been direly searching for, for a very long while. Therefore I figured as a thanks I would give him my completely worthless vouch for his sysop bid. And may I say, you really should watch FLCL as soon as you can. I don't think you will regret it one bit.--SirArgo Talk 22:00, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Vouch - Yep! That's a thumbs up! --Jack Officer 23:37, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Vouch - Because he said this: "I'm also not interested in getting caught up in whatever politics are going on here." and because he should be punished for owning an iProduct. --Grogh 00:23, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Vouch - Does good work, and needs MOAR! --KyleStyle 00:57, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Vouch - Seems like a moderately average kinda guy who will do some moderately average stuff to better the wiki. But he doesn't seem to be influenced by anyone else, and doesn't want to be pulled into politics. So he's got my vote. μnholy®eign Dual nature player 11:55, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
