Nomination[edit]

I, CommanderTony, nominate DavidJCobb for adminship at Halopedia.
Nominee, please accept or defer the above nomination below this line.
I, DavidJCobb, accept the nomination.

Reason for Nomination[edit]

Here's that time again, when we face a monumental task ahead of us. Within a year, more Halo material will be released than ever before, including the upcoming Halo Legends series and the prequel, Halo: Reach. As we've asked for a "different" types of admins in the past, whether their expertise is in community efforts, or their technical prowess, and today is nothing different. Right now, we have the community, and we definitely have the technical stuff down...so now we can shift to one of the most important things, writing skills.

DavidJCobb, like the others being nominated today, has proved himself worthy of donning the party helmets of the Halopedia Administration. He is one of our best writers today, likely remembering the entirety of the Manual of Style as entertainment while he re-writes some of our largest and most popular articles. In addition to his fantastic writing skills, David is one of our most gifted users when it comes to technical matters, a role we've needed filled for a long time.

Rawr,
CommanderTony

    1. Honestly, if you've seen even a small fraction of his edits, you'd see that David has more skills and knowledge than many of our current admins. Hell, any person who has multiple edits over 10,000k in size can be an Admin anyday. CommanderTony

  5. Halopedia Vote Symbol Neutral.svg Neutral - If I could, I would vote yes, but there are too many administrators already and some of them are hardly ever here. I know Halopedia could use the extra help against the possible upcoming vandals for Reach and Legends, but until some Admins have their Administrative status removed due to inactivity, I will remain neutral. --T 3 UserWiki:Thunderstream328|2]] 8 File:Bouncy Wiki Logo.gif|38px]] 18:30, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

Against (9/2) Sysop[edit]

  1. Overstrong Oppose.svg Oppose - DJC DOES NOT MEET TWO OF THE ADMIN REQUIREMENTS. HTF do I know about them and apparently admins do not?!?!?! - JEA13 [iTalk] 13:19, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
  2. Oppose.svg Oppose - Sorry, Cobb, I don't have anything againist you now, but you don't have the requirements. You aren't a Rollbacker, an Admin must have held Rollback Rights before being one, it's too early. No offense, but I don't think you deserve being an Admin, as of now. Why not going step-by-step instead of just one big jump? Flood12345
  3. Oppose.svg Oppose - We bending rules for admins now? No offense, but this is too early for me. And to be honest, aren't the main purposes of admins to be for antivandal use? From what I can tell, David really doesn't have that much antivandal history... --   General5 7    talk    contribs    email   01:22, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
The only rule I have seen that would normally disqualify him is the fact that he does not have Rollback Rights. Otherwise, he's more than qualified. SmokeSound off! 03:17, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
As per Smoke., but also General, being an admin is far less about reverting edits that is thought to be or actually is vandalism, and more about maintaining stability. Needless to say, that is far more work, and exactly the reason DJC is qualified. Nonetheless, I respect your opinion. -DinoBenn says "Fight to the End, Never Give In" File:S4.jpg|18px]] 08:53, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
I just have to point this out; has DJC ever shown any leadership capability? --   General5 7    talk    contribs    email   19:56, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
Just wondering, what's your definition of leadership capability?- 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 20:02, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
Leadership...to me, the person should be able to convince others towards the right direction. They should be helpful, which is at least the minimum for me.--   General5 7    talk    contribs    email   20:05, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
Actually the Guidlines for an Adminship say the user has to have over 2,000 total edits,while he has this he does not have a total of 1,000 mainspace edits, which the guidlines say you have to have. So are we gonna bend the rules?Sith-venator Wavingstrider File:ODST Crest.png|20px]] (Commlink) 12:02, October 22, 2009 (UTC)
  1. Oppose.svg Oppose - As per above. Like I said on Jugus' RfA, I can't just say "As per above." The reason I am opposing this RfA is because this user is plainly experienced, but plainly does not meet the requirements for adminship. Adminship does seem like it's been being given away like "free candy". Getting to know David would help, because if I know him, then I'll see if he's admin material or not. Administrators are a huge part of a wiki, and a huge part of the community. I won't support someone who I don't know; I don't know if they will go rogue, or if they will go inactive after their RfA, or if they'll be the greatest admin ever. I know that David will probably be a great admin, but with all due respect, he has to prove to me that he can be an effective admin before he gets my vote.

  3. Oppose.svg Oppose - I've seen the quality of his edits, through those, I think he deserves it, but the requirements apply to everyone, no matter their quality, he doesn't have Rollback and he doesn't meet the number of mainspace edits.

  5. Oppose.svg Oppose - While I think that both the other two pending RFAs should succeed, this one is just too much out of the fence of rules. Spirit of Fire 10:33, 23 October, 2009 (UTC)
  6. Oppose.svg Oppose - I have had another change of mind and go back to my original statement. Plus as per above, this seems to be bending a few rules. - File:Black Mesa.jpg|28px]] Halo-343 (Talk) (Contribs) (Edits) 22:06, October 23, 2009 (UTC)
  7. Oppose.svg Oppose - more than half of your edits are minor at least 1000 non-minor edits are required and you need rollback rights. Sorry, you just don't have the qualifications Galactic 19:05, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
It said 1,000 mainspace edits. Whether or not they're minor doesn't matter. SmokeSound off! 19:52, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
Oh, Misunderstanding on my part then. I seem to have a lot of those. well then I think he should be ready after about a month with Rollback rights. P.S. Cobb, I hope you get it we need more active administrators but I do think you should meet the requiremens first. Galactic 20:30, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
An understandable viewpoint, as are the others in this section. In any case, I'm happy just to be nominated, and if the admins decide that the Rollback requirement should be enforced, I'll happily work to meet that requirement. File:DavidJCobb_Emblem.svg|16px]] DavidJCobb  00:51, October 22, 2009 (UTC)
Technically, all you'd have to do is apply for rollback rights and then have it for a month. Not much work to it, really. SmokeSound off! 00:54, October 22, 2009 (UTC)
I'll be satisfied if he just applies for rollback. That way I know he is willing to follow protocol.Galactic 15:17, October 22, 2009 (UTC)

Cooleo! Congrats on getting nominated. This is great, maybe now glitches in halo 1 will finally start getting some of the attention they deserve! :D Matortheeternal 23:50, October 20, 2009 (UTC)

Been watching your conversations for several weeks now... returns to the darkness known as The Dream.- 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 00:01, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

I did vote for him and he totally deserves it but aren't Admins supposed to have "2,000 edits, 1,000 of which much be mainspace"? He only has around 890 mainspace. - ShadowBroker44 File:Librarian.png|20px]] (TALK) (CONTRIBS) 01:20, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

Ooh... Yeah, I just checked -- seems I also don't have Rollback rights, though I'm not sure how one would acquire such rights. As General5_7 also pointed out, it does seem like some of the rules are being bent. I was nominated by an admin, and admins have the final say in this, so I guess an admin'll sort it out. :P Still hope I win, but even if I lose (or am ineligible), I'm still happy just to be nominated. File:DavidJCobb_Emblem.svg|16px]] DavidJCobb  02:19, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
Wikipedia has a guideline like "if the rules keep you from getting the job done, ignore all rules". I'd say this applies to the general sentiment. --Dragonclaws(talk) 05:23, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
Somehow, that also applies to vandals. :O - 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 09:21, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
Well, the guideline specifies improving Wikipedia. --Dragonclaws(talk) 19:01, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

CT, although I do appreciate your concern for the safety of the articles, but this is insane! 3 RFA's? We have enough Admins right now, and although DavidJCobb, Jugus and Nicmavr are brilliant users, and I do they think they should all be appointed as Administrators, some administrators will HAVE TO GO. Take HaloDude for example. As soon as he was appointed an administrator, he hung around for a while, then he left. He's been gone for over 6 months, and none of the other Administrators have done anything about his Adminship. I think that there will have to be some RfRoA's (Request for Removal of Adminship) before any one of these users is appointed. --T 3 UserWiki:Thunderstream328|2]] 8 File:Bouncy Wiki Logo.gif|38px]] 18:38, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

Simon rjh and EwCDnaudee419 resigned quite recently, and we need several individuals to fill in their spot. Regarding HaloDude's status, he gave reasons that he'll be away for several months for some personal business and he'll try to contact us whenever he can.- 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 18:47, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
I'm glad that there's an explanation for his absence. I will change my vote. --T 3 UserWiki:Thunderstream328|2]] 8 File:Bouncy Wiki Logo.gif|38px]] 18:52, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

Turns out DavidJCobb does not meet two admin requirements, 3 month rollback and 1000 mainspace edits. This is getting ridiculous, stupid, annoying, unfair to certain other users. Seriously, you are corrupted. Oh, screw this. I'm talking to myself. Like anything is gonna change. Even if there were 67 opposes and 2 admins supporting, this would be passed. Well, screw you and your corruptness- JEA13 [iTalk] 21:06, October 26, 2009 (UTC)

So, I am corrupted, yet I have not gave any vote to these RfAs.- 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 21:09, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
You are an admin as well (and a "big" one), you are supposed to at least close this kind of RfAs , even with no support by your side, because of the reasons I mention above. And most of all, because of the "unfair to others" one. Heck, the user lacks two of the basic requirements. It's like you pick a random guy. Or, you are -obviously- opening RfAs for the users you (plural) like the most. kthxbai. - JEA13 [iTalk] 21:16, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
You know, I'm heading into a condition where I will burst out loud, so let me fetch my brother to do all the rambling.- 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 21:18, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I'd seriously like to know the reasons you (plural again and it is no sarcasm) just sit and let this go on. - JEA13 [iTalk] 21:20, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
JEA13, grow up! Have you ever think the Administration Team consider those other three users? Have you ever been in contact with them and ask them why they didn't nominate those three for the Adminship? Have you ever used your fvcking mind to ever consider the fact that the Administration Team knows of the problem with the requirements? Well, I don't and to be honest, I don't really care. But since you made that comment that the Administration Team is acting stupid and corrupted, then message them. Ask them why. You don't have to express your immature mind in this comment section if it involves battering the Administration Team.--Lol@Phailure 21:30, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
I do not care about the reasons those specific 3 were not nominated. They were just examples anyway. I care about the reasons this one here is nominated. Subtank still has not replied to my question. Can she reply to my question? If she can't, she just wastes your time trying to insult me politely. Again, answer my question. Why did you pick these 3 users if you knew they were lacking the requirements? If you do not have a reply, I won't take that comment back or out of here. And I do not message the admins because they will simply not reply. Easy solution, "message them". You never say the "wait for a reply for ages" part, which is what happens.- JEA13 [iTalk] 21:41, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
If you knew the real story behind the RfAs, then you would understand... but no, you wouldn't. It's interesting to see how the community hates you just for this little issue after you've made tons of contribution to improve the community and their surrounding.- 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 21:46, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
Then tell me the real story behind the RfAs, here or in a PM I don't care. You still have not replied to my question, which is partly the reason I don't care about what the community thinks of me right now. And that makes me believe that there is no real story behind the RfAs. So, reply to my question and leave out the community things you try to discourage me with.- JEA13 [iTalk] 21:52, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
Hmm... I should let you know, since the fact seems to have escaped your notice, that others have already pointed out that I don't meet all the requirements -- and they've done so in a far more mature manner than you, I might add. File:DavidJCobb_Emblem.svg|16px]] DavidJCobb  21:24, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
Alright guy, before this degenerates, calm down. Everyone has a opinion, so state your case in a kind manner. - SoF 21:28, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
Almost nobody knows about both of the missing requirements. And my point here is to make the admins aware that they are making wrong and unfair decisions on certain occasions. I don't want to just mention this and ok, bye. I would use a mature manner, if I was aiming for the second point. In order to make others aware of something and make them agree with you on it, you need spirit, and not "mature talk". If you do not add some furiousness to your speech, there is no spirit, just "raw, formalized, maybe even geeky talk", nobody will give a **** about it. - JEA13 [iTalk] 21:41, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
Honestly, your "spirit" made you sound as though you hated the admins, hated the site, hated being here, hated me, and wanted nothing more than to leave, escape this realm of corrupted, bigoted, nepotistic administration. I see what you were trying to do, but there's a fine line between passion and needless condemnation.
The other issue is that your post made it sound as though you consider me a total incompetent, entirely unworthy of the position. For all I know, your only problem with me is that I don't meet the requirements... but the "spirit" you used made it sound as though you believe I am a horrible, horrible user.
Again, I understand your attempt at conveying passion and explaining your views in a "non-nerdy" way. But there are better ways to do that. File:DavidJCobb_Emblem.svg|16px]] DavidJCobb  22:03, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
As per the PM, I am extremely sorry if I managed to insult you on my -yeah maybe pointless- rage against the admins. If you were a total incompetent, I would not be able to even type right now. Your early RfA and votes show that you can't be after all. My point is to make the rest of the users aware of these admin issues. -JEA13 [iTalk] 22:13, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
It's cool, I get it. Replied to the PM -- check your profile. File:DavidJCobb_Emblem.svg|16px]] DavidJCobb  22:31, October 26, 2009 (UTC)

Like I said before, if you really would like him to be an admin, close this RfA. Then, when he has all the requirements, nominate him again. It won't take that long, and will cause less commotion. --File:Bat2.gif|45px]] General5 7 B OO! 21:40, October 26, 2009 (UTC)

I would vote for these guys if they met the requirements,they are great, hard working users, but they don't meet the requirements. Like General5 7 stated above if you really want them as admins your let them become ones right.Sith Venator
Agreed. They are all great. But rules are rules. - JEA13 [iTalk] 22:03, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
You might want to go find a different tone if you are trying to get a point across, or to get results. No one will listen to you like this. I certainly won't. I was (still am) considering closing both this and Jugus' RfA due to them not meeting the requirements - but I'll leave it open out of spite if you keep up this type of behavior, JEA. You will calm your nerves, then go back and try again. You WILL state your point in a non-inflammatory manner. Do we have an understanding? SmokeSound off! 23:06, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
As JEA has pointed before, THIS IS TOTALLY UNFAIR, we appoint an user who doesn't meet the requirements to be nominated for Adminship. Maybe, I'm not the best user to say this but, we a have a lot of much more experienced users who deserve this more than Cobb (sigh), for example, Miss General and Kelly-087. Worst of all, Admins do not seem to care about. Flood12345
Administrators haz gone corrupted! Oh noes... seriously, maybe they made a small mistake by simply overlooking the requirements? Has no one ever thought of that? How small is your brain?--Lol@Phailure 23:36, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
Like I just said, I am considering closing them. Now if you want to act like little friggin' kids about it, I can leave it open and let it run its course. I'm aware that they do not meet the requirements. Action is currently being considered. But I said it once, and I will repeat it one last time - you had better change your damned tone.

Questions[edit]

Nominee, if you accept the nomination, please answer the following questions. It is advised that voters check the nominee's responses before voting.

  1. When did you join Halopedia?
    May 12th, 2009.
  2. What do you believe are your most valued contributions to Halopedia?
    I've rewritten a lot of articles, but most of my better rewrites are on glitch articles.
  3. What do you believe are your most valued technical contributions to Halopedia?
    I guess it'd be my explaining glitches, and some of the templates I've made.
  4. What do you believe are your most valued contributions to the community?
    My edits to the wiki, I'd suppose, and what social interaction occurs on profile and talk pages. Honestly, I'm not too active on the Forums, the IRC, etc.
  5. If you are administrated, what changes do you propose?
    Off the top of my head? Perhaps a Manual of Style for glitch articles... I'm also working with Matortheeternal to see how we can improve the article on Stunts.
  6. To the best of your understanding, what does administratorship entail?
    Technical skill at operating the wiki; an understanding of policies; vigilance, and the removal of vandalism; and patience, when dealing with new users who are unfamiliar with the rules and policies. There's also the obvious one: I have to be trustworthy, since adminship generally comes with a banhammer.
  7. To the best of your understanding, when will you be able to check Halopedia after you are administrated, in the event that you are?
    I'm usually on every day, or close to that.
  8. What communities are you associated with online, Halo and otherwise?
    deviantART, though I haven't checked that in a while; StarEdit.net, a community for StarCraft mapmakers; and a friend recently brought me to Book of THoTH, a forum about various things involving the mind (ranging from philosophy to morality to conspiracy theories, though I personally don't believe in the latter).
  9. What is your familiarity with the Halo universe?
    I've played and beaten Halo 3; I've played some Halo PC and Halo Custom Edition multiplayer; I'm loosely familiar with the H1 and H2 plots, and quite familiar with that of H3.
  10. What is your familiarity with Wikia and Halopedia policies?
    I'm quite familiar with the policies as well as numerous best practices (as seen on Wikipedia).
  11. What is your relationship with the Halopedia community and current administration?
    Far as I can tell, it's quite cordial. I get along with the current admins and friends with several non-admins.
  12. How may users contact you?
    I have a Gmail account that I check regularly. Not gonna post it here where spambots can get it, but I will give it out on request. Shouldn't be necessary, though: every time I log on to my home computer, I open five to seven sites, one of which is always Halopedia.
    EDIT: I just realized that there's an e-mail feature here. Just enabled it; the e-mail link above oughta work now.
