I would like to nominate I R Zaros to become an administrator because he is a hard working editor on the Runescape Wiki. I have seen his contributions, making many neat and very helpful edits. He is always patrolling, cleaning up the smallest of articles all the way to editing the biggest, hunting down those who cause trouble, and helping those who are new to the Wiki. It is a shame that this hero of the Wiki is only limited to small powers, if he was given the right tools, he would be a God, and the Wiki would become the best place for Runescape information. I R Zaros for Administration. --Black tricorn hat Micha499 14:20, 3 January 2009 (UTC).

I, I R Zaros, accept this nomination for adminship. I have read the policies concerning administrators. I realize that this nomination may fail. If I do get community consensus, I promise not to abuse my powers because I realise that this is a serious offence and if the community finds that I have done so, my powers will be revoked and in extreme cases I could be given a community ban. Signed, Zaros FTW! I R Zaros 14:26, 3 January 2009 (UTC).


Question: If I do become a Runescape Wiki Administrator, do I also become an administrator on other Wikis such as Funorb Wiki? Zaros FTW! I R Zaros 15:56, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Comment/Answer - you would only become an administrator on this wiki. Andrew talk 19:31, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Comment/Answer to Comment/Answer - Ok thanks. Zaros FTW! I R Zaros 19:34, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Neutral, Oppose (See below) - Lots of good edits, lots of contributions, great editor. Only concern is that the RfA is so soon to a major come back. Based on the contributions there is like 300 edits on 3 days, which seems a bit much as compared to the age of the account the edits received before that. Other then that, good user and contributor. 22:43, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Neutral - per Bonziiznob. I may change to support or oppose based on your edits in the next few days. Changed to Oppose per Azaz. Didn't the read the nomination as closely as I should. Be "a God"? What? Also, I don't recall any vandalism reports. Maybe you have contributed to a few community discussions, but not as many as you probably should have judging by your time here.

Comment - A good editor doesn't make a good sysop. I don't recall you reverting vandalism, reporting vandalism, contributing to community discussions, or doing anything else that shows you would benefit from gaining these tools. I'm also a little concerned no one has found fault with the nominator claiming that "if he was given the right tools, he would be a God".-- 03:02, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Azaz. Although you have a decent edit count, I have never seen you revert/report vandalism or contribute to any discussions such as the Yew Grove. Also per Azaz, I find "if he was given the right tools, he would be a God, and the Wiki would become the best place for Runescape information" a bit disturbing. I find it hard to believe that someone that wasn't even sure about how an RfA works would be a "God" and make this wiki "the best". Above all, you need administrative and experience and community involvement. Revert vandalism and report it to the CVU, contribute to the Yew Grove and other community discussions, and stick around for awhile. Andrew talk 03:07, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Comment and Support Change - Please note that the user himself/herself did not do the nomination therefore creating a dilemma about the situation is not the fault of the nominee but of the nominator. Don't penalize the user based on this. On second hand, you have done nothing administrative on this wikia therefore the needs for administrative rights is pointless. Keep up the good work though! Your a good editor. 04:51, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Azaz Buzz (Talk#P ) 08:40, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Oppose Per Azaz and Bonziiznob. You do not seem to need admin rights at the moment. C.ChiamTalk Calebchiam 10:33, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Responses - Vandalism : The reason why I haven't accounted for any vandalism reports is because I have never actually found any vandalism. I am however always checking the recent changes to find any vandalism but I just don't find any, so you cannot blame me for the lack of vandalism supports, just because this Wiki is well controlled and there are rarely none.

Done nothing administrative : Simply because I am NOT an administrator so how could I do anything administrative. However, I am reporting things to administrators such as speedy deletion tags, and this is why I would like to become an administrator, I find most speedy deletions pretty much sluggy deletion, administrative tools can allow me to delete it immediately.

Bonziiznob's First Comment : I do not understand what you mean in that. Please run through that again.

Re-run - I simply mean that since the creation of the account you have not had as much edits in three days per say as you have had just recently. To have an RfA for an account that is as old as this after while never having so many edits in the short period as recently. Anywho, you still don't preform administrative tasks so you don't need the rights. What is meant by administrative tasks is that a simple user can preform them. Vandal reverts (of which there is many), polls, votes, community discussions, forums, etc... 10:58, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Being a God : Yeah, don't blame me for that... I didn't write that.

Finally : I did not see this whole promotion to be an administrator coming at all. One of my friends just suddenly did it to me, and I was kinda shocked, I didn't know if I could manage it. But I thought, no harm in trying, maybe I am good enough to cope with the higher powers. However, I would like to withdraw from this request, as I'd rather notify an administrator of any problems, than deal with it myself because being an administrator would take up alot of my computer time and I would just never get a chance to actually play the game. On the other hand, if you think I should NOT resign, please post so.

Note - Although you are making a great effort at contributing to discussions, I was wondering why you commented on RuneScape:Votes for deletion/Slang dictionary, a closed discussion that states on it not to make further edits? 11:22, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Response - Well if it's closed, it should be removed from sight because some people may be in a rush and read things quickly. However the swearing in it is highly highly highly important and I reopened it again didn't I? Zaros FTW! I R Zaros 11:36, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, But I have no F*cking idea who you are, gain some more mainspace edits, then we'll see -- File:Coin.PNG What's this? Colo440 LOL! 25px 13:57, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Response - Excuse me but your foul languaged comment will be ignored, and adminisitration is not about popularity. Zaros FTW! I R Zaros 14:07, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

It very much is about popularity. People have to like you to trust you. Also, chill out about him saying the f*ck word. You can't disregard someone's comment just because he swore in it. 16:54, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Response - It is extremely informal and impolite comment, and if this is how formality, in such a low mannered way, then it's a large shame to Wiki, there are children who use these websites, and it isn't going to go down well. Informality loses users, so I suggest you better keep the manners on Wikia to a good standard. And if it is about popularity then I am going to withdraw because I am someone who does not share themselves to the world for private safety, and if you cannot understand that, then seriously, I may consider using another Runescape Helpsite if this is how you run things around here, never mind failing Adminship.
