Well, I've finally gotten word from all the admins so I can finally go ahead with this. I think I don't need to explain what's going on here. 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.

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 (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)

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- 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)

Votes for Yuanchosaan

  1. Devil Breaker 11:25, 3 April 2009 (UTC) I know who I am voting for, I'll vote Yuanchosaan coz of her editing skills.
  2. I am trying not to be biased here, but I think Yuan could be a good admin. While the other two are infact good, understandable choices, I think that she has been slightly more active in watching over and taking care of the Wiki as a whole.--Otherarrow 11:31, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  3. She's the one who edits almost all articles. In fact she has good vocabulary. Kuzlalala 11:39, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  4. She knows what she is doing, and yet is not as stuffy has some of the other higher ups on this site. Not to mention some of her content is quite interesting. Exdeath64 13:59, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  5. While she mainly sticks to gnoaming, Yuan displays many other traits that are needed as admin. She always deals calmly and effectively with troublesome editors, which is probably the biggest thing we need.--Muchomas35 14:35, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  6. All of these people seem like good choices, but I've seen Yuan's edit skill and I am simply amazed. For me, there's no one else to vote forRarikou 14:59, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  7. Aghh...I'm stuck with a tie between Fae and Yuan.....but since Yuan helped me out a few times, and the fact that she is willing to improve this wiki convinces me that she may be ready to be an admin....Sorry, Fae. Chocolancer 15:04, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  8. --'LloydIrving 15:23, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  9. We need some with her skills here( Gnoming and pretty much everything else Mucho mentioned) as an admin here. Kupo-dude 15:25, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  10. ChiefKakashi 15:38, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  11. She has potents to be an admin and knows what is she doing.--Red-yellow-striped-apple 16:44, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  12. Yuanchy is by far the best of the three candidates in the list beacuse I'm not there. --TenzaZangetsu
  13. It took me a day (and a small bit of night as well) to deside, and I'm going to go with Yuan, it was close between Fae and yuan, but I desides to go with the latter. I have seen her more active in certain area's than Fae. Meh, I think what I think, and I think she would be a slightly better Admin than Fae, but I still think he would be a good one.  Armageddon11! Dissicon ff12 Gab2 21:08, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  14. I like Yuan. I mean, I like some of the others too, but I especially like Yuan. She seems the most human of all the FFWiki people I've met. - Gilgamesh 21:53, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  15. Yuan would be a great admin, she has excelent grammar skills. Plus come on, It's Yuanchosaan!--NeoBahamut 22:58, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  16. I've had time to think about this and I think that Yuanchosaan has what it takes to become our new admin. No offense to 8bitBlackMage, but I was conflicted to vote for her or Faethin. Faethin is an extremely close second. If I offended you Faethin, I am sorry. Yuan gets my vote for what it's worth. --Tex Howdy! 23:14, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  17. Yuan, I think, is a generally more active person compared to the other two, and I think she shows all the qualities for being an admin. --SCM 23:31, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  18. MTC
  19. Zack fair 007 04:34, 4 April 2009 (UTC) yuan is so nice to me!


Those are your three candidates. I had another choice or two but these three are the best choices. Diablocon 10:54, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Another one? Really? *Shrug* I'll give it some thought when I get in from work. I think they're all pretty even, to be honest. --Gold 13:53, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
It's to do with the fact that Bluer retired (he's no longer an admin, he had Sannse take his powers away) and Hecko is also gone. Diablocon 13:54, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Whoa, I was unaware we even get to vote. I thought the other admins chose? - +DeadlySlashSword+ 14:24, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Usually it's just a case of "K, should this guy be admin?" with everyone saying "Yay" or "nay". It's basically the same, I just thought I'd give you guys some choices. Diablocon 14:30, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

I don't like voting for promotions. The opinion of the public is rarely overall as logical as the admin's. Template:ILHI 15:21, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Whilst the fact that I voted may make this sound hypocritical, I agree with ILHI. //masterConjurer (Talk)_ 15:27, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
My opinions aren't that great, I like to see what the public likes. Also, I asked both Bluer and Hecko and they both said "Eh, do what you want" and I wanted to have a poll since I couldn't really decide who should get promoted. CSM said Faethin, TA said he'd think about it and I never got a response and MMIL... erm, I can't remember if I ever got MMIL's opinion. :S Diablocon 15:29, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

I have no idea who I'm going to for vote for.  NeoZEROX Dissicon ff6 Ter4 17:42, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Me neither. But it looks like Blue was right. Our next admin has a strong chance of being a woman. N...not that I am opposed to that or anything. - Lost Hero 11:41 A.M., 4-3-09 (Pacific Time)

I suggest you two that vote for Yuan, she has done a lot for the Wiki but in the end that's your decision. --TenzaZangetsu 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Just because I'm bored, I'll confront you there. How? Template:ILHI 20:53, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Well, since i'm bored too (i'll maybe work in my walktrough later), i'll tell you, well, i don't need to tell you, ILHI, just check his/her Userpage and see the section of projects, there is all you need to know, i will explained you but i'm too lazy for that. --TenzaZangetsu 3 April 2009 (UTC)
But that is just any job she partook in. I do many of those things without even thinking I'm doing it, as does she too. Most of these are simple tasks too, except the creating of XI articles. I once had a project thing on my talkpage. I removed a task after I had done it though. Eventually I stopped using it and removed it because I could never stick to a task at one time. Right now I'm doing the Japanese for the FFI enemies, creating the BC-FFVII- enemy articles, gathering all information possible about the Japanese FFIV:TAY: as well as disambiguating, linking, VFDing everything possible, categorising, cleanup among other things. That's right now.
Of course, all respect to Yuan, I'm a WikiGnome too. But as a WikiGnome, we easily achieve edits. Both me and Yuan joined three days apart, and we both brag the highest editcounts on the wiki. Because we care more about the wiki, or because we are Gnomes? Though both of us have added content too, and other jobs foreign to Gnomes. And I would say Yuan edits more than most users here, and I'd say the same about myself too. Template:ILHI 21:14, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
I'm getting the feeling that ILHI is a little jealous that he isn't up for a promotion... ChiefKakashi 21:18, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
I regret not putting him up there now. Diablocon 21:20, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Why? Template:ILHI 21:22, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Because as you said, Yuan and yourself are pretty identical in terms of what you do. Diablocon 21:24, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
:D The thing that sets us apart most though, is the reason BH isn't up there. Though I chose to adopt my attitude problem. Template:ILHI 21:28, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Wha'? Why would I pick at the Gnome? I'm just insulting myself saying that about Yuan anyway. My point is Yuan got to moderator status quickly because of the amount and speed of her edits. Yeah, she puts a lot into this wiki, but Faethin and 8bit don't sport an as-high editcount yet still do a lot here. Template:ILHI 21:22, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Just some lulz here: "She [Yuan] seems the most human of all the FFWiki people I've met" -- Above you can see I was making a lot of comparisons. According to BH I'm not human at all. :D
"He [Fae] always so nice to everyone." Reminds me of a time I probably shouldn't mention. :D
Also, the people staying "I've been stuck between * and * for days" - when before now did you have to decide between them? This started today.
Hey, look at me, I can spam comments. Template:ILHI 22:04, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

ILHI, you should relax, men, you are makeing a big deal for nothing, I think you are as good as Yuan and now that I thinking, why aren't you in here?, I think you will be the next admin after the guy who wins here, well, unless the next admin is myself but that is not my decision. --TenzaZangetsu 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Oh, I don't care about adminship. I didn't care about Rollback. I don't care about my editcount, nor having the highest mainspace count, edit-count, and the other minor "most" things I claimed to have once on BH's talkpage when we were discussing "the bigger picture". I come here to help the wiki. And also for lulz. I know why Yuan is here and not me. For reasons explained here and other reasons I feel I shouldn't say.
The comment above yours was making lulz out of people's opinions differing greatly. Before then I was saying why Yuan should be on here and not me. I don't actually care.
And I'm still spamming the comments section. :3 Template:ILHI 22:29, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
(to many edit conflicts)We are all very impressed by your superhuman spamming powers, should'nt you be arguing with BlueHighwind or something. Ether way as only 1 person has voted for you, remind you what you aim to achieve from doing these giant rants.  Armageddon11! Dissicon ff12 Gab2 22:32, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

I'm starting to feel people haven't read what I've said at all. Template:ILHI 22:35, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

I wonder how often these guys get trolled at other forums. :/ Diablocon 22:40, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Look, ILHI, I'm not a admin and probably I'll never be one, but i don't complain about that, the best thing that some people can do is do what they think is right, you think that is a very good idea just complain about this?, well, wathever, have it your way. PS: If i ever become a admin (something that will never happen), i'll be laughing of you more than Kefka when he does something evil. --TenzaZangetsu 3 April 2009 (UTC)
You're still ignoring me because I said "I don't care if I'm admin" and never did I say I want to be. Well, once, on my talkpage, as a joke. Template:ILHI 22:53, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, i have a hard time listening to others than myself, but as i say before, have it your way, i just want it to help. --TenzaZangetsu 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Reasons to vote Faethin/Yuan. -Azul81677 23:31, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

I am disturbed by the lack of 8bit. Template:ILHI 23:31, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
I was going to post it yesterday before I knew who was running but I didn't have time, so I didn't want the time I spent on it to go to waste, so I added it to my page and I didn't know that 8bit was running. Sorry, 8bit don't take this personally. -Azul81677 23:36, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

I hate to point this out, but no less than three new users have joined today with only a single edit: to vote for Faethin. Don't tell me somebody is stacking the votes here too? Its not like its worth your trouble, Yuan was going to win from the start. --BlueHighwind 01:30, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

I was just going to bring this up. I'm not accusing anyone, but it is suspicious. --Gamer2127 01:32, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
@ILHI: *Lol* Thanks for the lulz! :D Now I have a very good mood thanks to ye. - SilverSummonerTaLk 01:44, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

I can't decide at this point...Cluna 06 02:43, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Make the Featured Articles rule apply here, nao. You n00bs make me... go into rant-mode like I have been all day. And Krystal, every single voting contest you take part it, you spend at least one edit explaining you don't know who to vote for. Well, what's that gonna solve, eh? Edit: @ILHI, we knew about these three being the choices for at least a week, everyone did. Template:BfDsig
I must now admit that I enjoy your attitude. //masterConjurer (Talk)_ 03:35, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
I still don't. Give Cluna a freaking break, will you BfD? - +DeadlySlashSword+ 04:54, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Devil Breaker 03:46, 4 April 2009 (UTC) woah i just voted yesterday and Yuan is gonna landslide, when will the vote end?

3 votes does not a landslide make. As for when it will end, I'm guessing at soon. --SCM 04:31, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Cluna, i'll give you a advice: vote for Yuan. She/he is by far the most prepared user of the three on the list. --TenzaZangetsu 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Don't tell people who to vote for. It makes you seem pushy and a bit rude. Let them choose on their own.--Otherarrow 11:22, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
Yuh huh. Or I might just rant on about how you're not necessarily right. Oh wait, I already did that. :D Template:ILHI 11:24, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
If you read carefully my message, you will see that i'm giving her a advice, not a order but if no one wants to know my narcisist and sarcastic opinion, i won't say anything. --TenzaZangetsu 4 April 2009 (UTC)
