I, Spirit-of-HALO, nominate Spartansniper450 for adminship at Halopedia.
Nominee, please accept or defer the above nomination below this line.

I, Spartansniper450, humbly and respectfully accept this nomination for adminship.

I will be closing this RfA, mostly due to the fact that I agree with too many RfA's at once, also with some agreement from other users I feel that a nomination later in the year will come with more support votes, I would like to thank all of you who supported me nonetheless and I hope for your continued support when this is re-opened Thank you, CoH/Member List#Field Masters|Field]] UoH/Member List#Colonel|Master]] Spartansniper450 17:41, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Reason for nomination

Well, the time has come for this user to show his worth. He has great and legit edits. He's always in the "anti-vandalism" IRC channel, and even beats me to 'em! Well, I discussed this with him, and with CommanderTony about this matter (and a few important subjects). He's a grand user, and confident to do the work 100%. Its been a great honor to serve with him, and its been nice to have friendly conversations with him. I did have other options though, but he stood out. In my opinion, he actually knows the truth to what Adminiship means, exactly what it means, and I honor that dearly.

  2. Halopedia Vote Symbol Neutral.svg Neutral - As per Kouger, I'm not sure. Plus, I haven't seen any or much technical work or anything like that from him, which is part of being an admin, so I'm on neutral for now.

  1. Halopedia Vote Symbol Neutral.svg Neutral - Similar views to Josh. Ghost sangheili
  2. Halopedia Vote Symbol Neutral.svg Neutral - Though I have given my absolute support for your candidacy in the past, I do not think that we need four RfA's running at the same time. Both you and Sniper450 are some of the most exceptional users this wikia has to offer. Though simply put, both of your RfA's should be reconsidered a couple months down the line. CommanderTony
  3. Halopedia Vote Symbol Neutral.svg Neutral - You would do a great job but RfAs are being handed out like candy at the moment.Death Rider
  4. Halopedia Vote Symbol Neutral.svg Neutral - Honestly, I don't think there should be so many RfAs at once. Too many admins. BPL 00:20, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Against (11/2 sysop)

  1. Oppose.svg Oppose - I'm sorry Snipes, I like you, but Administrator status is being given away like cheap chocolate now. I think we need to hold off more RfA's for now. Joshua (Talk) (Contribs) 18:43, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
  2. Oppose.svg Oppose - We have been electing to many Administrators lately and it seems suspicious to me that two users nominate each other for adminship. -ShadowBroker44 19:50, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
  3. Oppose.svg Oppose Josh took the words right out of my mouth. Justine
  4. Oppose.svg Oppose I have to concurr with Joshie. Its not personal, its more of a timing thing. -- Administrator Specops306 - Qur'a 'Morhek Honour Light Your Way! 23:45, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
  5. Oppose.svg Oppose Sorry, Snipe. I haven't known you that well, and like everyone else, think that the position is given away too easily. Nothing personal. -- ɢ ε й ε ʀ ɑ £ 57 01:39, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
  6. Oppose.svg Oppose - Per Joshie and Specops306. --Councilor Εw C 'Dnaudee Battle Net My Editcount Administration 12:36, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

  11. Oppose.svg Oppose - Sorry Snipes, but after much consideration, I find myself heavily agreeing with Joshie. Plus, I would consider yours and SoH's RfAs better off if they were opened in a few months time, rather than now. Nicmavr

  • I'm sorry to bring this up, but doesn't it seem strange for two people to nominate each other for administratorship? Colonel DA, Administrator 18:09, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, it is certainly not against our rules.. but true... it is strange. :P- 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 18:13, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
I too noticed it. I made me suspicious at first... :/ CoH|Councillor]] Nicmavr - Ascy 'Vamal Light your way with honour! 18:14, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
I mean, I know both guys personally, and I have no problems with them (we know each other outside Halopedia as well), I'm just saying it looks a little suspicious that they nominated each other in rapid succession.... Also when we have two other pending RfAs to begin with....Colonel DA, Administrator 18:23, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
I had a feeling this would come up, I can assure you all that it's coincidence, we didn't get together and say let's nominate each other, I have been talking about SoH getting another shot at an RfA for weeks now, last night I was informed that non-Admins can start RfA's when I heard that I figured I would start another chance for him, before I told him he said he was going to nominate me, I said this would be wierd because I wanted to nominate him as well, neither of us intended for these to happen at the same time, that's just how it happened. CoH/Member List#Field Masters|Field]] UoH/Member List#Colonel|Master]] Spartansniper450 20:31, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

I honestly don't care about what happened between you two, Snipes, I just know that you would do a good admin and that's all I need to know. - JEA13 [iTalk] 08:48, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Oh come on everyone, who cares about what happened between him and SoH? Just note the experience Sniper has. He is ready for this 10000%. Also, please note that there are three inactive admins right now. That explains all these RfAs. They are not "given away like cheap chocolate". There was a reason for them to open. - JEA13 [iTalk] 06:57, 25 May 2009 (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? May 6th, 2008
  2. What do you believe are your most valued contributions to Halopedia? While most of mine is anti-vandal work, my work with the Halo Wars related articles, before and after the game can be prided upon. I couldn't afford the game, so I went to great lenghts searching all possible sites for any information on the levels, characters, etc.
  3. What do you believe are your most valued technical contributions to Halopedia? Maintaining and creating a few templates for the site, I aided in the creation of the Known Pelicans template, and adding any new content to those templates.
  4. What do you believe are your most valued contributions to the community? I believe helping new users become familiar with the site is always valuable.
  5. What is your expertise with programming languages, if any? I'm fairly familiar with it, whatever I don't know, I'm always willing to learn.
  6. Do you administrate any other Wikia? If so, which? No, I have not administrated any other wikias.
  7. If you are administrated, what changes do you propose? I'd like to find newer, faster anti-vandal methods.
  8. To the best of your understanding, what does administratorship entail? To my understanding, Administrators maintain a leadership role, entailing orienting new users, upholding the standards and policies of the site.
  9. To the best of your understanding, when will you be able to check Halopedia after you are administrated, in the event that you are? Whenever possible, whenever I go on my computer, I usually log on to Halopedia.
  10. What is your familiarity with the Halo universe? I at one point owned all 3 of the original trilogy games, I own all of the books except Contact Harvest, which I have read nonetheless, whatever has come from the Halo universe I have read/played.
  11. What is your familiarity with Wikia and Halopedia policies? I am very familiar, I have reviewed them constantly, and will continue to go over them.
  12. What is your relationship with the Halopedia community and current administration? I believe I have a good relationship with the whole community, I've always tried to be respectful to everyone here, many I consider good friends.
  13. How may users contact you? I can be contacted via my talk page, messaging me, I can also be contacted on the IRC.
