General5 7

Relevant Links


I, CommanderTony, nominate General5 7 for adminship at Halopedia.
Nominee, please accept or defer the above nomination below this line.
I, General5 7, accept the nomination.

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 General5 7 to become an Administrator of Halopedia.

Lets give an early congrats to our newest admin. General 57!!!--Haloman101 03:06, April 11, 2010 (UTC)

Excuse me, but nobody should jump the gun and refer to any candidate as an "Administrator" until the voting has been closed, Administrator approval given, and their user rights issued by such. User:CommanderTony/Sig

Yeah Im sorry I just think General5 7 deserves this. Well currently we all do.--Haloman101 03:33, April 11, 2010 (UTC)


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?

April 21, 2009

2. What do you believe are your most valued contributions to Halopedia?

Mainly, my cleanup of the Action Figure pages, undoing vandalism when it occurs, and updating the out-dated articles.

3. What do you believe are your most valued technical contributions to Halopedia?

I'm not the best at technical stuff, but I did design quite a few templates for the action figure articles, and some other topics.

4. What do you believe are your most valued contributions to the community?

I often help new users around and try my best to reply to everything someone sends me (unless its a harassment, of course).

5. If you are administrated, what changes do you propose?

I don't have anything specific yet, but I may be having a major cleanup on the multiplayer level articles (such as Snowbound).

6. To the best of your understanding, what does administratorship entail?

An admin is chosen not only to have some extra "buttons" that only they can use, but to be a type of "role model" to newer users, as someone they could ask for help or information.

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?

Almost everyday, unless I have an emergency.

8. What communities are you associated with online, Halo and otherwise?

I work a little on Inheriwiki, but other then that, I don't do anything else.

9. What is your familiarity with the Halo universe?

I have read all the books except Halo Evolutions, and all the games except ODST and Halo Wars. But thanks to Youtube, I have a pretty good idea of the plot.

10. What is your familiarity with Wikia and Halopedia policies?

I frequently re-read the MOS of Halopedia when I am editing random articles, and I am also an admin on Inheriwiki, which also boosts the need of knowing policies.

11. What is your relationship with the Halopedia community and current administration?

Pretty good, as I believe. I frequently pop in and out of the IRC and try to talk to everyone in a mature manner, without causing more commotion.

12. How may users contact you?

They can contact me via my board, or my talk page. Like I said above, I visit the IRC when possible.
