Position: IRC Contact
Hi, I'd like to nominateto 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.
- 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 k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 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. ―ฬђ talk 04:27, February 26, 2015 (UTC)
