I, CommanderTony, nominate Subtank for adminship at Halopedia.

I accept thee nomination... Little_Missy - File:Cortana Gif.gif|24px]] 18:53, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Reason for nomination

In the past few months, Subtank has risen to become one of Halopedia's great users in just a short period of time. Subtank has thousands of great and outstanding contributions under her belt, is kind and generous to any and all users, and is just a good Halopedian all-around. 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.

  14. Support.svg Support - Practically every day I get a board message of Subtank alerting me to vandalism. If she is an admin herself, it'll save both her and the other admins a lot of time and effort.

  1. Halopedia Vote Symbol Neutral.svg Neutral She certainly deserves a nomination, yet she's not yet up to the standard of RR or CT. MasterChiefPettyOfficerSpartan Contribution 06:00, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
I'm sorry, did you just state that she's not up to my own standards? No..no, your right, i'm just the person who nominated her in the first place. As for RelentlessRecusant, no offense (if he ever reads this), but his standards are to high even for most if not all of the current Administrators.

Against (2/0) Sysop

  1. Oppose.svg Oppose Nothing against you Subs,but your already an admin on Halo Fanon,and I just dont think you should be an admin here,although I might change my mind.-Zeno Panthakree 14:03, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
    Already an admin on another wiki? I wouldn't say that is a reason for her not to become an admin here. As long as she's up to it, I don't see no harm of her becoming an admin here too. I'm not asking you to change your vote of course, I'm just commenting on your reason. CoH|Ranger]] Nicmavr My Work My number of edits My talk 18:00, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
    I think he might of meant the atmosphere between the two wikis are different. If so I agree with them there, but not enough to oppose. ChurchReborn 22:02, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
    Well, I see your point. But surely she can get used to it? She is a veteran user. I wouldn't use that as reason to oppose. Once again, I do not ask anyone to change their vote, just leaving comments on the reason. CoH|Ranger]] Nicmavr My Work My number of edits My talk 04:39, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
    Well, it's not like it's a share of the pie being kept from other users. Your complaint makes it sound as if by giving Subtank the position she would be unfairly privileged, and I don't see it that way. --Dragonclaws(talk) 05:20, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
    I'm not complaining, I'm just commenting on his reason. He did say that he may change his mind. In addition, Subtank is a hard worker, so I see no reason of not letting her being an admin on two wikis. Simon is a sysop on about 4-5 of them. CoH|Ranger]] Nicmavr My Work My number of edits My talk 14:18, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
    Even when he was at the peak of his activity here, Relentless was an admin of, IIRC, 4 different wikis (including HF when it only had 3 admins) and he was accused of dominating affairs here far more than he was accused of being inactive (and it took real life influences to do that). Most of our admin candidates say they are admins of other wikis and Manticore, at one point, held the position of Wikia Janitor. I fail to see how that is sufficient reason to say no - especially for two wikis that are so closely linked. It falls on the user herself to figure out how best to commit the time needed and whether sufficient time can be invested into both wikis to fulfill her responsibilities. I would certainly hope that Subtank has made that consideration already and it factored into her decision to accept the nomination --forgottenlord 13:56, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
    I agree, I have made that commitment as well when accepting my RfA and knowing Subtank I'm sure that she has taken time to consider these points. --Councilor Εw C 'DnaudeeBattle Net My Editcount 14:05, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

    Just a comment on your vote, she is already an administrator on Halo Fanon. Admiral Hess 16:58, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
Also she's amazing at finding vandals, point whores, etc and reports them to admins, if she is admin she will ban them before they cause more harm. Mr. HalonerdFile:Extermination2.jpg|20px]] 21:21, 3 October 2008 (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? 7th September 2007 (797) It seems I forgot to celebrate my Halopedia anniversary.
  2. What do you believe are your most valued contributions to Halopedia? I've been the intentive member of the Ancients of Halopedia, a Senator of Standards Council of Halopedia, and recently became one of the three Reclaimers of the Ancients. Adding on to that, I've been upholding the rules (Law) and policies (Policy...uh...yeah) in Halopedia ever since the Halo Wars announcement became official, bringing countless wave of Spammers, Exploiters, etc.
  3. What do you believe are your most valued technical contributions to Halopedia? I'm fairly good in creating templates, userboxes, custom signatures (For other users), etc. In addition, I've tried importing several templates from other Wikias and also Wikipedia in which was suppose to help Halopedia in its management and organisation of sections. Some failed though...
  4. What do you believe are your most valued contributions to the community? I've been scouring the user list, searching for suspected vandals, spammers and exploiters which can be seen in my Blacklist. This operation has been active since the announcement of Halo Wars, though should not be considered official.
  5. What is your expertise with programming languages, if any? Keeping this short, I only have the basic knowledge of HTML.
  6. Do you administrate any other Wikia? If so, which? I'm currently the seventh Administrator of Halo Fanon Wikia and the founder of the doomed SpaceInvasion, an European web browser CRPG.
  7. If you are administrated, what changes do you propose? I would propose an extension over the policies and also a major cleanup with the help of the Standards Council of Halopedia.
  8. To the best of your understanding, what does administratorship entail? I think that an administrator's job should be of an example for other Halopedians to follow. --Catholic_Ninja's sermon...
  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? Almost everyday except for Sundays in which I work for extra Pounds and Mondays in which I'll be facing a lot of school-related issues, due to the International Baccalaureate Programme.
  10. What communities are you associated with online, Halo and otherwise? Other than Halopedia, HaloFanon, Bungie.org...My brother and I are currently managing some drawings/sketches with other users in DeviantArt.
  11. What is your familiarity with the Halo universe? I've played and read every Halo-related released by Bungie. I don't think I could add anything more than what I've just stated.
  12. What is your familiarity with Wikia and Halopedia policies? I'm somewhat familiar with both rule set, though I might have to refer to them overtime.
  13. What is your relationship with the Halopedia community and current administration? For the community, I regularly check out the Blogs (Popular and New) made by users, giving them comments and criticisms. Also, since June 08, I've been logging onto the IRC, conversing with other users and getting to know them better, and at some point even played the "Guess Who Am I" game. As for our administration, I've enjoyed talking to them, the old and the new.
  14. How may users contact you? Users can always leave me a message via Message Board. If I don't reply to that message in 24 hours, they can always find me at Halo-Fanon, which serves as my secondary home.
