5-x (RSN: 5-x)
Rank requested: Administrator
Hello, I'm 5-x. I've been a wiki user for 5 years, a member of the clan for over a year now, and previously held the position of clan admin for 6 months. I suspect my name is familiar to most clanmates, as I try to be quite active. I'm in the central Europe timezone.
With my decision to run for clan admin comes the wish to support our community even more, be it inviting new players to the clan, helping the Events Team by maintaining the clan noticeboard/broadcast system, and assisting with the clan avatar.
I, 5-x, accept this nomination for a rank in the Clan Chat RSW. I have read the clan chat rules and the rank guide pertaining to my desired rank. I understand that this nomination may fail. If I do get community consensus, I promise not to abuse my tools because I am aware that this is a serious transgression. If the community finds that I have done so, I understand that my rank will be revoked, and that in extreme cases I could be given a community ban. Signed, 5-x Talk 13:33, April 24, 2015 (UTC)
Questions - We already have enough Lieutenants available to invite people to the clan, there are already enough avatar wardens, and more than enough people to help the ET maintain the clan noticeboard (Which no-one uses anyway). Why would we need another Admin?16:54, April 24, 2015 (UTC)
- We have so many people able to invite new players to the clan, yet it sometimes happens that there's no one around willing to do it. I'm inclined to agree about avatars - their usage is varied, so I could still help out in some of the existing gaps. As to the clan noticeboard, I was the one maintaining it, so it's not surprising it's almost unused now. 5-x Talk 21:29, April 24, 2015 (UTC)
I feel like I should talk about my reasons for the opposition of the last RfR, given I didn't go into detail about them on the thread.
I felt that the creation of the RfR almost immediately after the suggestion that you lose the rank on the thread was terrible form and showed a lot of arrogance and entitlement - at the very least it should've waited until after the thread was concluded. You can't just have something stripped from you then instantly turn around and ask "can I have it back now?". I also felt that your general attitude with respect to avatars and adminship, while it had improved between me removing your avatar warden and (shortly before) you leaving the clan, had taken a nosedive and was pretty poor during the last RfR. There was also a lot of salt during and after the RfR.
Back to now: are these concerns still relevant? Mostly no. The first point is gone since it has been several months since the thread and last RfR, and I don't generally see the arrogance and entitlement issues any more. I also believe the attitude issue is mostly resolved. I see occasional comments [particularly about the lack of avatar] and while they generally have a joking tone on the surface, I feel it belies the saltiness that is beneath. This is why I am not supporting; I feel mostly neutral or slightly opposing, but I have intentionally left the bold identifier out because I don't really feel that's the focus of my comment. We shall see if I change my mind later. @Gaz#7521 17:22, April 24, 2015 (UTC)
Support - Pretty sure I supported your last RfR.

Oppose - If you want to invite people to the clan, get the two banana rank, the notice system was rarely ever and hasn't been recently by the Events Team and as for "assisting" with the avatar it just becomes more of a thing to hoard. Sly Fawkes (talk) 22:41, April 24, 2015 (UTC)
Support - Per Temujin and Oil. User:King kolton9/Signature 20:24, April 27, 2015 (UTC)
Support - Per Oil. The reasons for the last attempt failing are pathetic and overly bureaucratic. User:Urbancowgurl777/Signature 20:33, April 27, 2015 (UTC)
Neutral - "Occasional comments [particularly about the lack of avatar] and while they generally have a joking tone on the surface, I feel it belies the saltiness that is beneath." I was going to say immaturity. But who's to say I would have dealt with it any better. I do think you should be admin again. But the comments that Gaz refers to (which I also noticed) are what holds me from a support. Raglough (talk) 03:35, April 28, 2015 (UTC)
Neutral - Although I believe in giving people a second chance and I enjoy seeing 5-x on a regular basis in the cc and also doing some clannie stuff like when we did BA :), I am not sure that enough time has gone past from him being stripped of his last admin. role. I do not know, or even really want to know the reasons behind the first admin. role being stripped, but I do know that it would not have been done lightly and must have been a serious transgression. I still see some tension in the cc at times, between 5-x and some other clan members, so until that tones down a bit, I don't think I can give my full support at this time.

- My admin rank was removed automatically when I briefly left the clan back in December. 5-x Talk 12:41, April 28, 2015 (UTC)
Support - I like the idea of you being an admin again. User:Night Fears/Signature/3 14:59, April 29, 2015 (UTC)
Support - Go for it.15:17, April 29, 2015 (UTC)
Support - 5-x is always very helpful in the cc and I am yet to see anything in the cc that would make me weary of him having admin. Flaming Foe 14:53, May 02, 2015 (UTC) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) on 14:53, May 2, 2015 (UTC).
Support - Per Oil. 5-x had been a great admin in the past and I see no reason why he shouldn't be afforded the opportunity to be a great one again.19:31, May 4, 2015 (UTC)
