Spirit of Fire

Relevant Links


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

I, Spirit of Fire, am honored to accept this nomination for adminship at Halopedia.

Reason for nomination

With a few of our current Administrators on an extended leave of absence, with a growing community due to more Halo sprouting up everywhere, and recent proposals. Myself and a collective group of experienced, veteran users saw the need for at least another Admin to help Monitor Halopedia.

Over the past few months, i've seen this user make contribution after contribution, small and large edits alike. He's dedicated himself to the success of this wikia towards it's goal of a supreme Halo encyclopedia, and one of the best Wikia sites. With the upcoming Manual of Style proposed by Subtank, that will undoubtedly be developed and passed soon, I can see this user being of a great asset to everyone on the site. This user's leadership is uncanny, and cannot be left unnoticed.

Neutral (5/2) Sysop

  1. Halopedia Vote Symbol Neutral.svg Neutral - Spirit of Fire is capable, devoted, and altogether a great user, but I don't know if he's ready for adminship and the leadership and other responsibilities it entails. —Kougermasters 01:01, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
    1. Changed vote. —Silken Floss (Valentine Ж Redfield) The Platypus 01:29, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
  2. Halopedia Vote Symbol Neutral.svg Neutral - Same as kouger and I also feel like adminship is becoming a bargain bin sale. Justine
  3. Halopedia Vote Symbol Neutral.svg Neutral - I'm not totally sure at this point. While this wiki does need more admins, I'm going to sit on the fence and wait for a few more reasoned opinions before making a decision. I probably will eventually lean towards support. Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 09:36, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
    1. Changed vote. Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 11:25, 30 May 2009 (UTC)
  4. Halopedia Vote Symbol Neutral.svg Neutral - Pretty good friend, but I still on't like this many Admins, sorry but like the last one I'll accept it if it passes. I'm also not so sure if he's ready. Sorry. Happyhobo-117 The Guy
  5. Halopedia Vote Symbol Neutral.svg Neutral - As of right now, I agree with Justine and Kougermasters. --Councilor Εw C 'Dnaudee Battle Net My Editcount Administration 10:23, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
  6. Halopedia Vote Symbol Neutral.svg Neutral - Similar to 888th Avatar; you are one of the capable and devoted users in Halopedia... I apologise but can't really say much.- 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 21:28, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
  7. Halopedia Vote Symbol Neutral.svg Neutral - Sorry mate, but I'm not too sure we need more admins. We already have around 10 or so. Question is, do we need more? I'll think it through. --General57Talk to me here 01:37, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
    About three of the current Administrators are currently inactive, one was just recently gone, and activity within the "active" admins has dropped (including myself). To help in assisting of the new M.O.S. and all of the new content, more admins ARE needed. CommanderTony
    Changed mind. But only slightly. --General57Talk to me here 22:06, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
  8. Halopedia Vote Symbol Neutral.svg Neutral - Don't know the user well enough. Incendiary 12:52, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Against (0/0) Sysop


Not much comments or opposition... good luck!- 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 21:35, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

I agree, it's looking good for Spirit of Fire... all I'm wondering is if he has what it takes to be an admin. —Silken Floss (Valentine Ж Redfield) The Platypus 01:28, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
As for the impartiality it takes I think I got it; of course there's many things a newly-elected Admin has to learn to be able to accomplish his/her tasks. However, users who claim they don't know me can ask me questions whenever they want. As I'm logged in, I'm also on the IRC constantly. Spirit of Fire 09:08, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Good answer. I think I may change my vote to support. —Silken Floss (Valentine Ж Redfield) The Platypus 22:38, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
I'd like to give thanks to all those who support me BTW. Spirit of Fire 18:23, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

SoF, I have to apologise for removing my vote from the Support section. It's just because I don't think I should support all four RfAs at the same time. It might be not fair for some of the users that might deserve it more to get the same amount or even less support votes than some others that are not at their "level". I didn't oppose anyway. I am neutral. I apologise again. :) - JEA13 [iTalk] 08:57, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Don't worry, no offense taken, I respect your opinion. :) Spirit of Fire 16:00, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
Bah. :) - JEA13 [iTalk] 06:17, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

It seems, to me anyway, that the community's mind is made up. I doubt there will be many more votes, either supportive or neutral. It seems foolish that, though it is Halopedia policy, this RfA will need to be open for 1 - 2 more months. Would closing it early be possible?

Due to the overwhelming support for Candidate's Smoke. and Spirit of Fire, i'll see what I can do with the Administration regarding an early approval. CommanderTony

I think this should pass sooner than two months or a month, since he has no opposition whatsoever. -Killjax File:Halo logo.png|80px]] Troopers! we are mean, and very, very UserWiki:Spirit-of-HALO|mean!]] 03:35, 11 June 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? I joined Halopedia on October 17, 2007.
  2. What do you believe are your most valued contributions to Halopedia? I am mainly a vandal fighter, often reverting their damaging work, but I've also made lots of edits in order to improve the articles and their contents.
  3. What do you believe are your most valued technical contributions to Halopedia? I've learnt most of the wiki coding during my service and I often fix templates and signatures which violate Halopedia's policy.
  4. What do you believe are your most valued contributions to the community? I usually invite unregistered users who make excellent edits to join our Wikia; I also help unexperienced users to start their Halopedia career in the best ways.
  5. If you are administrated, what changes do you propose? I'd like to make all new users read Halopedia's policy to prevent possible future "problems". I'd also propose a general Blacklist on this site, with all of the Admins responding to users' warnings concerning vandals and spammers alike.
  6. To the best of your understanding, what does administratorship entail? Assisting unexperienced users, protecting the whole site and its content from outer attackers who don't respect our work. Being an administrator is also much like being an example and a benchmark for non-veteran users, showing them how to introduce new articles and keep improving older ones.
  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 log in on Halopedia everydays and often more than once on the same day for at least 2 hours.
  8. What communities are you associated with online, Halo and otherwise? I am member of Gearspedia, which I joined only a few weeks ago.
  9. What is your familiarity with the Halo universe? I own every game, every official strategy guide, all of the comics and a couple of the novels, precisly the Fall of Reach and Ghosts of Onyx.
  10. What is your familiarity with Wikia and Halopedia policies? I know them quite well, exspecially the parts concerning Editing, Signatures and What Halopedia Is Not.
  11. What is your relationship with the Halopedia community and current administration? I get on pretty well with all of the Administrators in charge and all of the registered users. I keep my relationships always in a positive atmosphere, which is at the base of an effective cooperation between users.
  12. How may users contact you? Many users being them standard ones or admins alike contact me on my board. They may use the latter or my talk page as well.
