I, CommanderTony, nominate EwCDnaudee419 for adminship at Halopedia.

Nominee, please accept or decline nomination.

I gladly accept this nomination as Administrator. --Councilor Εw C 'DnaudeeBattle Net My Editcount 01:23, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Reason for nomination

For the past year, EwCDnaudee419 along with many others have rose to mold a group of Halopedia's best people, known as the "Veteran users". EwCDnaudee has thousands of awesome contributions under his belt, and is one of our best contributors. Since activity is expected to grow within the next few months or so, with the upcoming releases of the Mythic Map Pack, Halo Wars, and other things, more people are needed to monitor and protect the site.

I'm intrigued by your comments about voting system changes. Where do you see a flaw in our current voting system and what changes would you like to make? --forgottenlord 14:03, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

For starts, I don't like the fact that users make pointless edits just so they can vote. Reaching the goal of 50 edits is all they care about and half the time those users don't stay with Halopedia. I would like to propose that we make some amends to the Voting policy taking into account the number of edits and time needed to be able to vote. Its unfair to veteran users if all the new users just voe on what they think sounds good at the time and then later on all the users that stay with Halopedia have to deal with that votes outcome. --Councilor Εw C 'DnaudeeBattle Net My Editcount 01:37, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
Actually, we already take time into account. Voting rules are 50 edits + 1-3 months (depending on what's being voted upon - RfAs are longer than Usergroup elections) since registration. Furthermore, people that make useless edits in the form of point whoring or something similar and have been convicted so that they become banned also have their votes stricken. --forgottenlord 02:31, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
I understand them, I am saying that they should be harsher. In my eyes 50 edits is to easy and 1-3 months isn't a definitive amount of time. I would rather have voting be not only a Privilege but an Accomplishment as well. --Councilor Εw C 'DnaudeeBattle Net My Editcount 12:52, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Grimaces* I've got to disagree with you. Halopedia is a site that anyone can edit, that is run for the community, by the community. The voting rules, as they currently exist, are in a large part designed to prevent abuse - and I think, for the most part, abuse has been prevented. I don't see a lot of people working to get to 50 edits just to vote, and I sure as heck don't see an increase in voting proportional to the size of our community. Even more importantly, I've only seen one stupid vote in my entire time being here - the odd nomination of Sitheris for HotM - this is not a problem
Quite honestly, I think we have the reverse problem: I think this community keeps falling farther and farther into elitism. I'm not exactly one that can complain, but we do have the problem where our members look down upon the newbies and keep finding bigger and bigger hurdles for them to climb. The system, IMO, works because we let newbies in to do whatever they feel most comfortable doing. If we don't, if we continuously restrict them, we make it very difficult for them to want to become veterans. I've stated before that one of the biggest problems this community faces is turning newbies into veterans - we SUCK at it. Setting the bar higher and higher and making the rules more and more obscure worsens this situation.
Also, the 1-3 is a definitive number - really it should read 1 or 3 months depending on the vote. --forgottenlord 13:44, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
Fair enough, you have made some good points although I would still like to see some Minor changes. I would also like to change the Quiz and Poll policy. That, I believe, is not well enough regulated and the consequences should be more specific depending on offense. --Councilor Εw C 'DnaudeeBattle Net My Editcount 16:08, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
I agree with forgottenlord on this problem, there has been a decreased level of members rising in ranks. Halopedia is set up where you have to work your way to the top or be crushed at the bottom. Either way, we must encourage members to work their way to the top, and make them know that the status of veteran is very reachable. -- Lovemuffin File:Dancing_master_chief.gif|30px]] •••|Ξ| Talk |Ξ| Edit Count |Ξ| Contributions |Ξ|••• 20:45, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Again, would you care to suggest your changes for quiz and poll changes. I do agree that current policies are not tight enough or aren't enforced enough (or both), but I'd like to hear your view on this matter. --forgottenlord 00:11, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Fair enough. Personnally I believe the consequences of violating the Poll and Quiz policy are to harsh. It states that a member is to be banned for a week for each violation. I believe the blocking time should correlate more to the offense, this may help avoid any accidents or confusion. I also believe that the policy should be enforced/regulated more as it seems that there are more and more nonsense polls with grammar mistakes (etc.) running rampant everyday. --Councilor Εw C 'DnaudeeBattle Net My Editcount 00:27, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Huh - I think I could get to like you. --forgottenlord 03:26, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Well Thanks. --Councilor Εw C 'DnaudeeBattle Net My Editcount 14:19, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Personally, I think a RfA for EwCDnaudee419 has been long overdue. The only reason I would disagree with the Administration status would be the difficulty of writing out his name ^.^. But we all know that's not a liable factor. -- Lovemuffin File:Dancing_master_chief.gif|30px]] •••|Ξ| Talk |Ξ| Edit Count |Ξ| Contributions |Ξ|••• 20:39, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
