BlueDragon-ff1-psp.png End Game - Proud to be a Vandal!
Talk - Little kiddies writing video game walkthroughs have the nerve to tell me to get a life?
There is one GF left in the lineup for moderators, and I think it is high time that this lone GF is used.

The final mod's image, being the GF, Pandemonium, could have no more appropriate holder than End Game.

For what reason do I feel he would be an appropriate Pandemonium? Let us examine a few of the reasons:

  • He has caused much havoc and chaos, and yet has a gentle, peaceful eye.
  • He is a Grammar Nazi with a careful eye for detail (the "gentle, peaceful eye" mentioned above).
  • He is both willing, and capable, of turning a dull and quiet Wiki into a lively place (the "havoc and chaos" mentioned above).
  • He is a living god (better than some gods out there).
  • He is not afraid to speak up when another user or person of power has stepped out of line.
  • He is me (the most compelling reason of all).

In short, though occasionally troublesome, he is occasionally useful, as well.

End Game is the Tapioca of the Wiki world!

Vote End Game for a better tomorrow!

Vote End Game for Pandemonium!

I am not asking to be one, I am nominating myself to be one. There is a difference.

Thanks, Nelo & Azul, that really means a lot to me.

Though there are two brothers, assigning two members would just be confusing as there is 16 blocks.  ILHI 14:38, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

@Yuan: Thanks, & yes 14 times longer is right; 14 months (although only really active for about 6).

@ Everyone: I agree with the majority; if you look at the midgar press of 2008 you'll see that new mod/s have been appointed once each month so it makes sense to wait until next month or the one after.

I don't think CSM meant that he would give someone Modship every two months, just that if he was going to it would be every 2 months.

IMO, mods should only be added if either

  • Activity has increased and there is more edits to check, spam to revert, members to ban etc.
  • Another mod becomes less active, and by that as in not visiting regularly.

Adding Mods on a regular basis doesn't help the wiki, it just means a lower mods to admin ratio, which isn't really a good thing.  ILHI 15:18, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Personally, I say meh. I still reckon there are enough staff; rollback doesn't mean that much anyway. A member without rollback can do exactly the same as a member with, just takes a little longer to revert edits. Though that doesn't help my argument, and is more in favour of giving it to someone. But a member with rollback counts as a member of staff and the amount of active staff overshadowing the amount of active members. If I had to nominate someone though, Yuan, although rollback doesn't help much with all those minor edits, it'll make you look more like a key member; and Adam.  ILHI 13:51, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

It's not the amount of edits that matter though. I've edited redirect links and links to disambigs to their meant page on some pages where I do loads in one edit. For example; User:Renmiri/Sandbox, and several people's User pages who leave the links in their best, next best, next best, worst table as redirects. However, when it comes to effort being put in the wiki; that is Yuan.  ILHI 15:08, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Meh. I was jus' saying it's not the amount of edits but what you do in those edits. I usually consider it rude to edit others user pages, but the links are wrong; the text on the page isn't being affected, just the code. I've also re-edited a few long FF4 pages, updating links; probably a better and more important example. But still; Yuan puts in the effort at a level worth authority.  ILHI 15:35, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

@BH: When did I ever leave? I admit I haven't been as active in the past week or two, but that's only because I've just had a week of having at least one exam every day. Still it's nice, in a way, to know that people notice I'm gone. I'll be back to regular editing shortly; I've only got 4 exams left.

@Everyone who nominated me: Thanks, it means a lot to me that you think my edits are worthwhile.

@Everyone: I'd have to say my nominees are Yuan or Henry.

I'll support Yuan for moderator. I think I told her that I would do it myself if I had the power. Sometimes its hard to remember what I say, though, because I shoot from the hip.

Oh, just a minor thing I forgot to mention, don't call me Mcduck (Azul...), call me Adam. The Mcduck nickname is NOT something I want to be called, it is just a part of a common username I use on various sites.

So please, call me Adam, thanks.
