So what is this? Bluerfn left? An administrator, leaving a coveted position? He is a coward, I say; fearful of the mindless horde in front of him! But what is this beyond that? A plea from the higher-ups to the worthless horde? Come now, bos-- Diablocon good sir! I think you are far too wise to ask these people who they "favor" as admin? It is obvious that for most of them, when they choose, it is for the candidate "they like", not "the one who fits" the administrator disposition! And further more... "needs a new admin"? Diablocon, good sir, I believe the existing administration is more than enough to handle this ignorant horde - myself included. It does not "need", it "wants". "Wanting" is different from "needing".

Also, your views really piss me off Durai.

I've decided to withdraw from this. Yes, I know I'm in the lead when it comes to votes, but I sincerely don't care about who becomes an admin. This "poll" has become nothing but a popularity contest, and honestly, I wouldn't want to be elected like this.
I won't deny it - I do want to be an admin, because I feel it would allow me to better the wiki and maintain it more effectively. But at the cost of my friends missing out on this? I really don't want to be in this kind of "competition"; I absolutely hate going against Feavyre and 8bit. I don't even know if I'm "worthy" of being up here or not, or why I'm so inexplicably popular.
The majority of the comment section here sickens me. Can’t you people just vote, and stop trying to sway others one way or the other? How do you think it feels to have your qualities (or lack thereof) constantly lauded or derided here? Try for a little maturity: don’t troll the comments section, and let others make their own decisions. I (and Feavyre and 8bit) don’t edit this wiki for respect or renown, and we don’t want it to be made out like that.
Yes, we do need a new admin - because, with Bluer gone, the Asian timezones are completely unprotected, and all the work is shovelled onto Diablo's shoulders. 8bit and Feavyre are both fine candidates. Choose from them, because I'm sick of this...mockery. I mean no offence to Diablo and those who voted based on the quality of the candidates. It gladdens me that I have a lot of supporters, and I thank you – it does mean a lot to me.
Throw me out of this "competition". I'll have nothing to do with it. &mdash; <span style="font-family:Mistral">[[User:Yuanchosaan|<font color="skyblue">Yuan</font>]]<sup>[[User talk:Yuanchosaan|<font color="#00BFFF">Saluto!</font>]]</sup><sub>[[Special:Contributions/Yuanchosaan|<font color="#1E90FF">Acta</font>]]</sub></span> 23:55, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

You're a noble little urchin, Yuan, and you are a good editor. To see one step down because a vote has become a popularity contest is a truly gracious act. 8bit and Faethin are also good editors though, and in my time here, all three showed themselves to be quite capable. All three of you would make a good admin. Were I to vote, though, whomever I voted for would no doubt have been removed from the running.
hehehehe. Best of luck to the two remainders. Let us all hope this is more than a popularity contest! Both are skilled, but one critical skill is how one might deal with a person such as myself. Knee-jerk reactions are deadly, while talk is risky. Look at how they would react to the extremes, as both are close when dealing with the norm.

I think SCM made a point about making all three of them admins, as the three of them deserve it...however, I think there's a litte flaw in that idea (but I can't tell what...Wiki-dremocracy is such a difficult thing to uphold.

I say we let the experienced users vote for it. We have WAY too many n00b users to be able to get a informed voting pool. (happens all the time, check the results of the last US election. (Please note this is just a shot at the feds, and not to be taken seriously)). Pretty much every democratic country has an age limit on when you can vote (For the USA, it is 18.) Perhaps if they have been a member of the wiki for a year or so they can vote for things of real importance, perhaps allowing us to avoid the whole thing becoming a popularity contest. Has usual, just pitching. [[User:Exdeath64|Exdeath64]] 06:08, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
:If we place restrictions, it is usually based on mainspace edits. Restrictions that would stop you from voting in any of this stuff, seeing as your edit count says you only have 18 mainspace edits. --[[User:Some Color Mage|<font color="blue">'''S'''</font>]][[User talk:Some Color Mage|<font color="black">'''C'''</font>]][[Special:Contributions/Some Color Mage|<font color="red">'''M'''</font>]] 06:13, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
I know. I don't care. To be honest, my vote is not going to effect anything. So it really does not matter if i vote or not, if a limit benefits the wiki, then so be it, but this is simply my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. (and i am a wikiogre who has not "binged" since sardapedia got overhauled(and i am not really welcome there anymore...) due to an utter lack of anything to work on here). [[User:Exdeath64|Exdeath64]] 06:19, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
::Your comment was very ironic. You said only experienced users should vote, and that there were too many n00bs. However, a newb is a new user, while a n00b is someone who's been around long enough to know better, but is just an ignorant bastard. And, really, I don't think time is a factor at all. I mean, I haven't been here very long, but I think I've looked at the situation pretty objectively. Really, the only thing my inexperience has affected me on is that I don't actually KNOW these people, and with a database this size, it wouldn't matter how active I was: There would still be a chance that I'd never come into contact with them.[[User:Neo Bahamut|Neo Bahamut]] 07:55, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Revision as of 12:32, 5 April 2009

FFWiki forum logo.png
Forums: Index > Rin's Travel Agency > Archive > The new admin poll

Well, I've finally gotten word from all the admins so I can finally go ahead with this. Recently Bluer left and had the Wikia staff remove his admin powers, thus leaving us an admin down. Now we need a replacement. However, remember a few things:

  1. Sign your votes like so: # (Reasons for vote) ~~~~. Votes in talk bubbles will be removed. In fact, completely refrain from using talk bubbles in this topic.
  2. This isn't a popularity contest. Choose the user who you think would be most responsible as an admin with your reasons.

Voting will be over on Monday the 6th of April. When all is done, I will use the data to pick our next admin.

Votes for Faethin

  1. Because of all the things Fae has done to the music pages, I'll go with him. --JudgeZarbi TALK 12:41, 03 April 2009
  2. Yeah, I agree with that, plus the work done in the Etymology section is really helpful, as not that many people write in that particular section. Captain Darkblade 12:59, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  3. After seeing their contributions, it's a tough choice indeed... But I'll vote for Senor Bard. ^^ - SilverSummonerTaLk 13:21, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  4. This was a really tough decision. I'd like to think you're all equally devoted to this wiki - It's just a matter of I think Faeth is better suited to be an admin. - +DeadlySlashSword+ 14:21, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  5. From what I've seen, Fae is very helpful and knowledgeable, yet doesn't assert superiority. Prefekt. //masterConjurer (Talk)_ 14:31, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  6. Drake Clawfang
  7. I've been stuck between Fae and Yuan for days, and I'd give anything to vote fer both. o_o Not saying that 8bit doesn't have potential, of course he does. I give my vote to all three of you. :D Template:BfDsig
  8. I think Fae and Yuan are great editors, but Fae just seems like admin material (no offense Yuan) Cloudofdarkness was [| here]
  9. I like his name :) FinalFantasyfreak
  10. He seems like he has done the least here out of the canidates, so I mst vote for him. Why Me?
  11. He always so nice to everyone. BlueLionheart Cloudy Wolf.jpg (T/C) 21:51, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  12. Faethin has always been an great editor, and seems dedicated to always get his job done. When he puts information on the site, he knows it's right, and that's saying something, because he doesn't always focus on things that are explained in the games. He's always there to lend a helping hand, and unlike a lot of the users on the wiki, he doesn't feel the need to be a sarcastic jerk to try to be popular. DrakemasterDrake 22:25, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  13. I vote Faethin because he is one of the nicest on the IRC. (Sorry Yuanchosaan, I hope we can still become friends though) -- Xelazu
  14. Reasons: See link below.-Azul81677 00:01, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
  15. I like Ike, er, Faethin HiyaWikia 01:24, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
  16. Because I know that Fae can take the responsibility. Hexed 05:29, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
  17. I haven't been around terribly regularly for a while, but from what I know of these users, I feel all of them would do a good job, but I think Faethin would be the best. --Mymindislost 05:43, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
  18. Because this is about who you think is most qualified to be a sysop, not who has been nicer to you or who you like moar... And of the three, because of his more sporadic times of being active and because he most likely always has a tab open with the FFWiki (considering he's also almost always on the IRC), Faethin has the highest probability of already being on the Wiki if there's a vandal strike (so he can prevent it from escalating) and he is likely to respond sooner to protect/delete requests. These are among the things you should be considering when you cast your vote, cause while I lubz<3 the other two users as much as the next guy/girl, this isn't a popularity contest... --Hecko X 13:07, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
  19. I would love to be an admin, and I admit that it's very hard to do this, and that there's some selfish part of me whacking me with a hammer right now. But Faethin would be a better administrator. The main reason why we need a new admin is because Bluer left. It makes sense that the person who should become the next admin should be able to help Diablo on this wiki with the degree of skill that Bluer did. That being said, Fae has the markup skills and experience on the wiki I do not have. Um... I really can't think of anything else to say, except that I want to stress that the good thing about all of this is that all three nominees and Diablo have good relationships with each other, and I hope I can speak for them when I say that there will be no respect lost between us no matter what the aftermath is. I would ask that everyone who has voted in this poll think about that. 8bit 00:38, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
  20. Faethin was the close second. Sorry 8bit, but Faethin is one of the users I think gots what it takes, he has been imporving the wiki for a while now and....yeah. Sorry for the vague reasonings.--Otherarrow 00:41, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
  21. Fae get's my vote, because Yuan quit.  Armageddon11! Dissicon ff12 Gab2.png 01:40, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
  22. Faethin gets my vote because c'mon he's faethin. The King of the Loveless
  23. 'Cause Yuan's out. Kuzlalala 06:38, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
  24. Uh damn even if I do hate him, he's got more experience in this kinda stuff.--'LloydIrving 08:01, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Votes for 8bit BlackMage

  1. He's by far the best contributor and editor of this group. Just the sheer volume of things he's added to the wiki, I have to go with 8bit. --BlueHighwind
  2. 8Bit all the way! Woo! Woo! Ultima The High Seraph 15:13, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  3. Fae is mainly a contributor, Yuan is mainly a Gnome. 8bit has done loads of both. I wasn't going to vote, but I'm right. :D Template:ILHI 16:03, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  4. No boubt in my mind 8-bit should be the Adimin, I feel he is more than capable for the job. MasterTheif43 16:41, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  5. He sort of helped me start my userpage. :p Judge Balthier 18:00, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  6. I vote him because --BlueHighwind voted him^^. But of course that's not the only reason. Also cuz i've seen more contributions of 8bit BlackMage than the other candidates.--→BaschOria← 18:30, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  7. All three are great contributers, but my votes goes to 8bit for the reasons stated above. ScatheMote 19:26, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  8. My vote is for 8bit for all of the above reasons. - Ninja of Wind Ninja of Wind2.png- 21:27, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  9. Okay here goes; he's the only one of the three I've had any real interaction with in my limited spell at the wiki over the last two years where i've been particuarly inactive. He's also the one I genuinely think would do the best job. And so my vote goes to 8-bitBM without a single bit of hesitation (well, maybe a little bit, haha) --Gold 12:51, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
  10. User:A-Man968
  11. Fae seems too uptight. one must find a balance between being too stuffy (Like Bluer), and yet must be able to take a more relaxed view of things(like BH) too much of one thing leads to problems, this crap happens all the time in my JROTC unit, and it never ends well (but that's another thread). 8-bit is no Yuan (she should not of stepped down, just putting it out there.), but he seems to be better balanced then Fae.
