Position: '''Community Director'''
 
 
I would like to apply for the position of Community Director. I am very active on the Wiki, and well rounded in my contributions. I am in good standing with the community, given that I have rollback rights, and I have been selected as a Featured Editor twice. I also have administrator rights on several smaller wikis.
 
 
I am frequently active in the Sims wiki chat, and I'm somewhat active in the [[IRC|IRC channel]]. While I was initially reluctant to consider taking on this position, I have thought about it some more after reading up on what is expected of a user in this position. I am not easily offended by any opposition, and I will be more than happy to accept any constructive feedback.
 
 
I thank you advance for reviewing this request. I can understand if some are opposed to my request, but like I said, I am in good standing, and my experience has been quite useful, in helping out newer and less experienced users. ― '''[[User:C.Syde65|<font color="maroon">C.Syde</font>]]''' ([[User talk:C.Syde65|<font color="black">talk</font>]] &#124; [[:Special:Contributions/C.Syde65|<font color="black">contribs</font>]]) 06:38, August 23, 2015 (UTC)
 
:I am inclined to support your request. But, before I do make that official, I'd like to ask a couple questions. What do you see as being some of the roles of a Community Director? Are there any particular tasks you'd like to undertake as the C.D. or any ideas you'd like to implement?
 
 
:As I said, I'm inclined to support C.Syde, as we haven't had a C.D. in quite some time. Speaking to the candidate specifically, I think he is more than capable of handling this position and fulfilling its roles. I have every confidence that he will do the job well. -- '''[[User:LostInRiverview|<font color="navy">LostInRiverview</font>]]<sup> [[User_talk:LostInRiverview|<font color="green">talk</font>]] • [[User_blog:LostInRiverview|<font color="green">blog</font>]] • [[Special:Contributions/LostInRiverview|<font color="green">contribs</font>]]</sup>''' 10:30, August 23, 2015 (UTC)
 
 
::If there's any tasks I would like to undertake as the C.D., or anything that I would plan on doing, it would be managing some of the forums, because I have noticed that some of our forum questions in the past, such as [[Forum:Bluewater Village townies with Nightlife clothing|this one]] should really have been paid more attention to. If there was a question I made that hadn't received answers from a sufficient number of users, then I would basically take matters into my own hands and choose how to add the information to those pages based on whatever information I had. Provided that the said information was accurate and I hadn't found any evidence that stated otherwise.
 
 
::Other than that there's not really much else I can think of at this point, but I'm sure that there will be some other things that I would like to implement once I think of them. ― '''[[User:C.Syde65|<font color="maroon">C.Syde</font>]]''' ([[User talk:C.Syde65|<font color="black">talk</font>]] &#124; [[:Special:Contributions/C.Syde65|<font color="black">contribs</font>]]) 10:59, August 23, 2015 (UTC)
 
 
:::'''Comment''': Community Directors do not solely make the decisions on the wiki. You cannot implement things that you think are best for the wiki without at least a proper discussion. That's not how things are run around here. ~ [[User:Beds|<font color="purple">'''Beds'''</font>]] <sup>([[User_talk:Beds|<font color="#66CDAA">'''talk'''</font>]] - [[User_blog:Beds|<font color="#66CDAA">'''blog'''</font>]])</sup> 12:21, August 23, 2015 (UTC)

{{Oppose}} Well, I have my reasons for this opposition. First of all, I don't see how being a CD would help in cases such as [[Forum:Bluewater Village townies with Nightlife clothing]]. C.Syde has frequently [[wikipedia:WP:FORUMSHOP|forumshopped]] for responses to his threads on chat and on IRC, and while I can see why C.Syde would do this, it's not something I would support, as pestering other people to partake in community discussions is more of an annoyance than it is beneficial. Secondly, I would like to see C.Syde more active on IRC. I am hesitant to support a CD that focuses little on this part of the wiki, especially considering that the channel is older and more mature than our on-wiki chat. Those who frequent IRC know little about C.Syde, and IRC ''is'' a part of our community, so I'd advise C.Syde to get to know the people on IRC better. Lastly, and this should be my strongest argument, a CD should <span class="inline-quote-talk" style="font-family: Georgia, 'DejaVu Serif', serif; color: #008560;">[plan] and [direct] any special events and make announcements regarding community activities and updates</span>. C.Syde hasn't even written a [http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions?limit=500&contribs=user&target=C.Syde65&namespace=500 TSW News or TSP blog post], and I'm hesitant to support a CD that has to make special community announcements when they haven't written a weekly news blog. --I am [[User:K6ka|'''<span style="color:#0040FF">k6ka</span>''']] [[User talk:K6ka|<span style="color:#0080FF"><sup>Talk to me!</sup></span>]] [[Special:Contributions/K6ka|<span style="color:#0B4C5F"><sub>See what I have done</sub></span>]] 20:09, August 28, 2015 (UTC)
 
 
:'''Comment''' - The reason I don't frequent IRC is mainly due to my poor IRC connection, which constantly causes errors forcing me to exit and reload IRC, which can be quite irritating. Also I haven't written any weekly news blogs because I'm sure I have a particularly strong concept as to exactly "what" a weekly news blog "must" include, and what they may include. I might have to practice writing a news blog before I consider signing up to write one. ― '''[[User:C.Syde65|<font color="maroon">C.Syde</font>]]''' ([[User talk:C.Syde65|<font color="black">talk</font>]] &#124; [[:Special:Contributions/C.Syde65|<font color="black">contribs</font>]]) 22:13, August 28, 2015 (UTC)

Position: '''IRC Contact'''
 
 
Hi, I'd like to nominate {{userlinks|K6ka}} to be the new IRC contact. For those who don't know what that means, upon the success of this nomination he would be getting some additional userrights on IRC in correspondence with everything else that bureaucrats have.
 
 
I feel that all of K6ka's positive traits speak loudly without me having to explain it for you. You all made him a 'crat very recently. All I can say in addition that is relevant to this particular position is that he's highly active on IRC, he knows his way around it and he's always willing to help others out where he can. Given that he's already a bureaucrat, he already has most of the rights associated with this position anyway and I feel that he's a fantastic choice to take the reigns of IRC contact from myself.
 
 
Furthermore given recent events, i.e. Uncyclopedia's spammer leaking into #wikia-sims among countless other channels, it's probably for the best that somebody as closely associated with the community as K6ka is given my old rights mainly to provide some peace of mind. You should all know by now that I wouldn't be typing all of this out if I didn't believe that making K6ka the new IRC contact was the right idea and, given that he accepts this nomination, I am confident that the rest of the community believes in him like I do.
 
 
So with all this in mind, once he accepts (or declines) the nomination then we can get voting/discussing/whatever. {{LabSig}} 23:37, February 22, 2015 (UTC)
 
 
:After three days of breathing and sleeping on this thought, I would like to '''accept''' this nomination to become IRC contact. Forgive me if my IRC skills are not up to par with other, more experienced ops, but since I seldom ever have to use my tools, and since we have three ops that are far more experienced with IRC than any of our on-wiki admins, and since Lab is mostly retired, I guess I shall accept this position and keep the future of The Sims Wiki alive, rather than in a retiree's hands that hardly comes onto the wiki (I'm assuming that's Lab, unless he likes to drop in every day to see how we're messing up his beautiful wiki?). Anyways, thanks again, Lab, for nominating me. --I am [[User:K6ka|'''<span style="color:#0040FF">k6ka</span>''']] [[User talk:K6ka|<span style="color:#0080FF"><sup>Talk to me!</sup></span>]] [[Special:Contributions/K6ka|<span style="color:#0B4C5F"><sub>See what I have done</sub></span>]] 21:28, February 25, 2015 (UTC)
 
::To be honest the IRC contact really hasn't got that much to do from a technical standpoint as they used to as there's a bunch of other ops, and even user flags management isnt that big of an issue as the other bureaucrats can also do this. To me its more of a question of looking after the channel, and acting as a trusted link between the wiki and the IRC community. There's no rule that states you need to be 100% proficient at IRC to have these rights, and appointing a wiki bureaucrat to this position is absolutely fine by me, especially one who is as active as you. {{WHsig|04:27, February 26, 2015 (UTC)}}
 
:::K6ka is pretty active on the IRC channel and has no problems in handling the op flags. I fully trust that he would be able to take up this position well enough. He already knows what he's doing and it would be very beneficial to have an IRC contact due to the recent trolls coming in and out. ~ [[User:Beds|<font color="#6B1D51">'''Beds'''</font>]] <sup>([[User_talk:Beds|<font color="#512d17">'''talk'''</font>]] - [[User_blog:Beds|<font color="#512d17">'''blog'''</font>]])</sup> 10:19, February 26, 2015 (UTC)
 
::::I'm not sure if we need an official voting procedure for this nomination. Or is it already starting? Either way, I support K6ka's nomination. I don't often join the IRC channel, but I know I can trust K6ka for this position.

Position:'''Social Media Representative'''
 
 
I'd like to nominate myself for the position of Social Media Representative. I am active on the Wiki, at least on the IRC channel. I am in good standing with the community, given that I am already the Ombudsman, and I have been an administrator before. I also have accounts on the social platforms the Wiki's a part of (Facebook, Twitter and Steam), so I know how to work with them.
 
 
I thank you in advance for reviewing this request. {{DanPinSig}} 14:34, July 3, 2015 (UTC)
 
 
:'''Strong support''' - Dan is an active member on social media, and on the wiki. He has also voiced his opinion in some community discussions and is not only appreciated, but he is liked amongst the community. He has my full support as a Social Media Rep. ~ [[User:Beds|<font color="purple">'''Beds'''</font>]] <sup>([[User_talk:Beds|<font color="#66CDAA">'''talk'''</font>]] - [[User_blog:Beds|<font color="#66CDAA">'''blog'''</font>]])</sup> 14:49, July 3, 2015 (UTC)
 
 
::{{Support}} I think it's about time we took these positions seriously and filled them up. While Danny hasn't been very active on-wiki lately he is very active on IRC. Having someone who looks after the wiki's social media accounts will be beneficial to the wiki's public image. --I am [[User:K6ka|'''<span style="color:#0040FF">k6ka</span>''']] [[User talk:K6ka|<span style="color:#0080FF"><sup>Talk to me!</sup></span>]] [[Special:Contributions/K6ka|<span style="color:#0B4C5F"><sub>See what I have done</sub></span>]] 15:06, July 3, 2015 (UTC)
 
 
:::'''Support''' - Beds has covered a lot of this already, but I'll add on a bit. Dan will be able to help us increase engagement on Social Media and get our message out there. He is a former administrator as well, so he can be trusted to handle the controls effectively. - '''[[User:LostInRiverview|<font color="navy">LostInRiverview</font>]]<sup> [[User_talk:LostInRiverview|<font color="green">talk</font>]] • [[User_blog:LostInRiverview|<font color="green">blog</font>]] • [[Special:Contributions/LostInRiverview|<font color="green">contribs</font>]]</sup>''' 15:06, July 3, 2015 (UTC)
 
::::'''Support''' - While Dan doesn't do that much on wiki anymore I think he'd be a great candidate, since he's active on IRC and knows how to, and regularly uses, social media stuff as is (and recently redesigned our twitter page). I'd be more than happy for him to be a representative of the community. {{WHsig|01:00, July 4, 2015 (UTC)}}
 
Given the positive response here, this application is '''approved'''. - '''[[User:LostInRiverview|<font color="navy">LostInRiverview</font>]]<sup> [[User_talk:LostInRiverview|<font color="green">talk</font>]] • [[User_blog:LostInRiverview|<font color="green">blog</font>]] • [[Special:Contributions/LostInRiverview|<font color="green">contribs</font>]]</sup>''' 02:48, July 6, 2015 (UTC)

:Sorry but I'm going to be '''declining''' this for now. You're nowhere near experienced enough to be granted any position, this is only your 4th edit.
