Hey there, your edits seem pretty good so far. Don't forget to categorize articles you create. If you can't find a category, then add {{uncat}} to the page. Keep up the good work. Lights § talk 22:58, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

I think this might be what you want. For an RFA, three months is preferred, with several hundred edits (but most users prefer at least 1,000 edits). I would recommend waiting until the end of April/beginning of May to start an RFA. Lights § talk 00:25, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Note[change source]

We generally don't tell the IP addresses that they've been reported on the ViP. We let them figure it out for themselves the hard way. Also, can you please use the subst: feature when you warn a user? Razorflame 21:20, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Use it like this: {{subst:test4}}. Hope this helps. Razorflame 21:22, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

There is also no need to thank anyone on the ViP board. Your can always use the user's talk page for that--Bärliner 21:28, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Re:Hi![change source]

When you want to run again is up to you, I suggest before you run again you read WP:CFA, WP:ADMIN, WP:RULES and make sure you know the policies. Oysterguitarist 22:36, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

It would depend on the nomination, but one of my criteria is 3 months here. Oysterguitarist 02:47, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Userspace redirects[change source]

Don't forget to tag the userspace redirects that you create by moving articles from your userspace to the mainspace for deletion. Razorflame 20:40, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

When you move an article from your userspace to the main space, you need to put a {{QD}} tag on the redirect page in your userspace so an admin can find and delete the unneeded redirect. -- Creol(talk) 23:16, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
I'm asking if you would put the QD tag on the userspace page because it is an unneeded redirect to the mainspace article. Razorflame 14:51, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

ViP[change source]

I don't think having a long user name is considered Vandalism in Progress. Obviously creating multiple accounts is. -  EchoBravo  contribs  21:54, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

I dislike the use of the ViP page for the most part. On this wiki it isn't needed unless someone goes on a big vandalism spree. Otherwise, an administrator is going to see the problem when they go through the new changes. We all look over the new changes for gaps, etc. where admins weren't on in real time. The user names are going to stick out like sore thumbs on the new changes page. Unless those names start vandalizing page after page, no ViP report is needed. Usually what happens is an admin is trying to clean up the mess and then someone makes a ViP report and clogs up the new changes page, and then we lose track of where we were. It creates a waste of time. It is inefficient and only delayed me taking care of the problem. -  EchoBravo  contribs  22:02, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

My RFA[change source]

Hi there Swirlboy

I am just enquiring why you said in my RFA something like "We'd better not risk it" or something along those lines, when... You find a user, who is more notoriously banned on en:wiki and blocked over here and then make him admin on your PBS wiki, is thta a risk you're willing to take? I have been indef blocked on en:wiki, which i partly blame on peer pressure and bad influence. I have also been blocked here 2 times, but these blockes were only whilst user:Benniguy was here, I do not blame it all on the influence of him, but alot of it, because if it wasn't due to his influence, then surely i would be continuing to recieve blocks now, but i have not recieved one since he has been gone. Why would you risk benjamin, but not myslef?


My first block was for insulkting Gwib, but, in my opinion, I was provoked - there was a falling out over the way in which I worship, but i am pleased to say that that issue has now been resolved. The other time was when myself and Benniguy were being a bit silly under the influence of each other and a bit of alcahol. There is one more block, but that was by mistake, as if you ask Tygrr, she will tell you.

I cannot justify my silly behavoir for my last block or any of my behavior over at en:wiki, except for peer pressure and under bad influence, but I cannot blame entirely on that. But, as you may have noticed, this is not en:wiki. To be completely honest, I knew 100% that when i requested admin, i would not get it, and i did not expect a single support. I only did it so i could recieve constructive critisism fo what to imporiove on for the future. So, Thank you very much for your comment "We'd better not risk it" because that is complete;y the constructive critism i was looking for, you have told me exactly what i can do in the future to becoime a better admin and be prepared for adminship, thank you so much! <- That was sarcasm.

Thank you for your time swirlboy, Thank-you very much!! IuseRosary? (talk) 09:46, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

My RfA[change source]

Thank you for voting in my RfA, which ended unsuccessfully with 59% support. I found this Request for adminship to be extremely helpful in learning what I need to work on now and I appreciate your vote in my RfA, as every vote that was posted helped me learn a little bit more about myself and the work I do here on the Simple English Wikipedia. Even though the RfA failed, I still thought it to be an extremely successful RfA and I hope to show you what I can do now. Cheers, Razorflame 21:01, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

You were really helpful.[change source]

Thanks. Why aren't you an admin? Theeyesarethewindowtothesoul (talk) 18:51, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Because he failed an RfA. It's quite simple - people can request to become an admin by writing a request on the correct page, and then everyone else talks about it and decides whether he should become one or not. Ultimately it is the 'crat's decision. Hope this helps, (and Swirl - hope this isn't too offensive) mC8 19:44, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

In Re IRC logs[change source]

It is not an attack, unless the logs are falsified to make someone look bad. Don't be evasive, Swirlboy. What you just did was participate in an attack on Ric, then after the evidence is deleted by someone else, come on my talk page and warn me. To call what I did an attack to distract people from the actual attacks that you participated in on a chat channel is a dishonest thing to do, after the evidence has been flushed down the memory hole. If there is a reason other than being ashamed of what you did, it is better to explain yourself than to be dishonest and hide. I am not assuming this, this is the only reason that I can think of that you would do this. — Jonas (talk · proposal) 20:47, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
