Nomination Edit

I would like to be a fanon and community development admin. I applied once before, and people said I should wait a while. I haven't been blocked, I have behaved well (I don't mean to brag) and I have the wiki's best interests at heart. And I love to help people. 21:21, June 22, 2013 (UTC)Me!-Bwahaha!Hurshbr

To be honest, I don't know. I can see that you're a competent editor and that your heart is definitely in the right place but your request doesn't tell me much, if at all, into why you would need and benefit from the sysop tools. The qualities you have listed, while they are good to have, don't tell me very much about how you would utilise sysop tools - the same things can honestly be said for any user regardless of suitability to become an admin. Furthermore, you seem to frequently make formatting errors, such as when you applied for this RfA and how you (unnecessarily) write your username after using four tildes to sign your posts. While these are minor issues, they can increase the workload of someone else who has to clean up.

Based on what I've said above, I'm in the middle with this at the moment. I may change my mind on this but for now, I'm not entirely sure. Lost Labyrinth Flag united kingdom england (c)(b) 22:24, June 22, 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I assumed that people would look at my previous application first. Sorry. Do you know where it is? Me!-Bwahaha! 02:32, June 23, 2013 (UTC)Hurshbr
Here it is. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 06:09, June 23, 2013 (UTC)
For future reference, it's a good idea to state your reasoning on the current RfA. The prospect of relying on a past RfA for reasoning is bad practice, especially as users would be more focused on this RfA and what's in the past is usually left in the past.

I really don't see you as being skilled enough to be an admin. Basically what Lab said, you made formatting errors and other things. Additionally I don't really see you having the maturity I'd like from an admin, but that's just me. Sorry, but I don't really approve of this. ђ talk 08:16, June 23, 2013 (UTC)

To be perfectly honest with you Hurshbr, I feel that you are not ready yet to become an Administrator. You were entrusted with the use of the rollback tool, which you have not used once, after a quick glance through your contributions. Not only that, but I am quite unsure about your number of mainspace edits. They aren't really important, but through the use of the rollback tool, you could have gained edits through the use of the rollback tool by reverting vandalism on these articles. You could also improve these articles to go towards your edit count. As a side-note, I also agree with Lab on the formatting errors.

I'm sorry Hurshbr, but I cannot support this. If you improve on your skills and all that has been said, then maybe I will support next time round. Beds (parlare) (da leggere) 08:33, June 23, 2013 (UTC)

I personally think that you need a bit more activity within the wiki. I don't tend to see you around. (but I am currently inactive so .. yeah.) I don't really think that you are ready to become an admin but I can tell you that your much closer than me. Jason (Talk) {{{1}}} 16:20, June 23, 2013 (UTC)

Judging from activity, I do realize that Hurshbr is quite very active in this wiki. However, most of his range of edits are around Fanon namespace. In fact, I haven't quite seen that Hurshbr is experienced enough to handle to mainspace, since his mainspace edits are still 26 (at the time of writing) from his edit count. I know we can't judge from the number of edits, but this is fairly small number to get used to the mainspace activity. So I don't think Hurshbr is ready enough for this. If he'd be willing to get involved in the mainspace, I'll have to reconsider it again. Nikel Talk Vote! 04:15, June 25, 2013 (UTC)


Consensus in favor of Hurshbr will clearly not be reached here, and given that this currently has a snowball's chance of gaining consensus, I'm closing it early; there's no need to draw out this entire process in this case.

A consensus was not found in favor of promoting Hurshbr, so rights will not be given at this time. Hurshbr may choose to re-apply or may be nominated after a minimum of 30 days. -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 05:07, June 25, 2013 (UTC)
