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

Not to disrespect, but as per Ultra_Force, I'm not much of an individual to actually administrate a wiki. I think it's kinda cool getting nominated and all, but I feel I would be better off being a normal user than a Cab... Admin. If I find anything wrong with the wiki, I will only bitch to the only admonin I really know.

Reason for nomination

As of today April 9th, 2010, Halopedia has honorably discharged four users from their prestigious positions as Administrator on the basis of inactivity. On that same day, I hope to begin the process to add four more users into our ranks.

All four members that will be given candidacy not only have the backing of myself, but also the good majority of Administrators that still remain. These users are exceptional in many of the same ways that most Administrators earn their rights, but also stand out as distinct individuals all with their very own unique flavor on how things get done and need to get done. In the months ahead, Halopedia will begin it's efforts to strive forward to a quality that has, quite frankly, never been with us. Together with these candidates, i'm sure the Administration and all Halopedians will benefit in this glorious endeavor (epic/melodramatic speech FTL). To put it simply, these users are some of the best writers, counter-vandalism users, and community members...and their contributions in the future will expand Halopedia's popularity, truthiness, and influence on the Halo community as a whole.

That is why I am nominating -Ascension- to become an Administrator of Halopedia.

Against (3/0) Sysop

  1. Oppose.svg Oppose - Seeing as no one has enlightened me in any way, I must oppose this nomination. Because the more and more I think about it, the more irregular and out of place this nomination seems. - File:Black Mesa.jpg|28px]] Halo-343 (Talk) (Contribs) (Edits) 14:12, April 10, 2010 (UTC)

Maybe I'm just not opening my eyes enough here, but I'm somewhat skeptical about -Ascension-'s nomination. He's a great user, that is clear, if not then he wouldn't have won Halopedian of the Month, but jumping to adminship? I've been looking over his contributions, and he's a good user, but comparing to other nominees, he seems to be a weak comparison. In addition to that, he hasn't been very active over over the last few weeks. It's not that his edits aren't good, "quality over quantity" and all that, but again I go back to my original points. This is just my view, so if anyone can, then please enlighten me. - File:Black Mesa.jpg|28px]] Halo-343 (Talk) (Contribs) (Edits) 11:33, April 10, 2010 (UTC)

Halo-343, you're not alone. I also felt the same way about -Ascension-. He make amazing edits, but reverts some unnecessary ones. He stated that he isn't obsessed in Halo. This will severely lower his will to edit in this wiki as an admin. I also noticed his disappearance in a few weeks, and we can't have an admin that is inactive for more than a week. I know that my oppose against him is great, but I am one of the few who wisely makes his decisions. --(_)LTR/-\ F( )RCE 16:14, April 10, 2010 (UTC)
