"More than anyone else has." - I think Dragonclaws is the exception there. HaloDude 09:01, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm going to wait a while and see how this plays out before I vote. Pryo 'Zarkum, [iTalk] [iWork] [iWrite] 11:49, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Sitheris: He is one of the most co-operative users here at Halopedia, and he has done so much in an attempt to improve our communities. He is a friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable user who should be recognized. SSgt. Razgriz 23:34, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
  • EwCDnaudee419: A knowledgable and hardworking user. UoH/Command Staff|General]] UserWiki:Simon_rjh|simon]] rjh 11:15, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
  • EwCDnaudee419: He gets my vote.Bllasae 14:16, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
  • EwCDnaudee419: Hey! Wait! He gets my vote too. Halo and 24 fan 19:07, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
  • EwCDnaudee419: Reverts loads of unwanted edits, and contributes with many good edits of his own. The Admiral File:1212237429_Rearadmiralinsignia.jpg|25px]] 15:33, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
  • EwCDnaudee419: Wow, quite a wierd username, anyway, it is my belief that he had made superb contributions, and some particular comments and edits with should be noted. MasterChiefPettyOfficerSpartan Contribution 13:26, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
  • EwCDnaudee419 Hello, I am friends with EwCDnaudee419. Ever since I met him he has given valuable information, and support with any problems i've had. I think he would do great as a Halopedian of the month, and the help he has given everyone is enough for him to deserve it.MASTER R0ACH
  • Simon rjh: This is an abnormal move on my part (I think this is my second ever HotM vote) but Simon has made, perhaps, the most important contribution to this community this month with his petition and subsequent blog calling for the end of points. I make this only in part because of the specific contribution but because the contribution is a form that has rarely been utilized in Halopedia and should be commended. --forgottenlord 02:19, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Simon rjh: Simon is someone that has stood out on a regular basis. he improves quality and quantity of our articles, and his recent activities are based solely around helping and improving the community. I'm with forgottenlord on this one, his efforts should be commended. HaloDude 18:31, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Simon rjh: He works hard and really doesn't get recognized much for it.Grievous797
  • Simon rjh - If not just to make this month interesting...anyways, he's made several vital contributions, the main one being his petition. In addition, he's been active on Halopedia, as almost all the activity on the Recent Changes is due to him. Good luck on your RFA too, Simon. :D Sincerely, General ÌṂρεσάḹόґMyVictoriesFile:Cavalier_achievement.gif|28px]] 13:06, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Simon rjh - For this month in particular, Simon rjh definetely deserves to be HOTM. BananaCat File:1213452567 Cat-facts.jpg|20px]] Message meEdits Stats 17:03, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Lovemuffin - I think he's earned this one, not only as a veteran, but as a contributor, and a level headed voice in the chaos here. FightWithHonor
  • Simonrjh Active contributor, editor, IRC frequenter, helper, etc. --Blemo File:Progress Wheel.gif]] TALK CONTRIBUTIONSEMAILMESSAGE 05:05, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Comments[edit]

Sitheris? Are you kitting me!? He has less than 100 mainspace edits, the other nominees have more than 1,000. Excuse me, but wtf? Pryo 'Zarkum, [iTalk] [iWork] [iWrite] 11:53, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

It isn't just about editcount, it's about quality of those edits, communication and enthusiasm. Being an asset to Halopedia doesn't necessarily mean you contribute a lot to the articles. UoH/Command Staff|General]] UserWiki:Simon_rjh|simon]] rjh 11:55, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
I understand that. But obviously, you didn't look at some of the differences on his contribs. They are mostly the additions of links, or a spelling fix up. Forgottenlord, for example, doesn't have a huge amount of namespace edits, but has been a great asset to the community, and very enthusiastic and constructive on controversial blog posts. Sitheris lacks significant contributions and the kind of effort and enthusiasm shown by FL. Pryo 'Zarkum, [iTalk] [iWork] [iWrite] 12:01, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
I meant it as a guideline for voting in general, not just for Sitheris, who is a bad example because of the reasons you stated. Forgottenlord is a very good example, again, for the reasons you provided, although he used to contribute to articles a lot as well before his unofficial leaving. UoH/Command Staff|General]] UserWiki:Simon_rjh|simon]] rjh 12:06, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
I've never even seen this "Sitheris" guy on Halopedia.Bllasae 14:18, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

We really have a problem here, who's this Sitheris guys, and I think that no users with less than 100 edits are allowed to be nominated. MasterChiefPettyOfficerSpartan Contribution 14:23, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

I found nothing in the policy along the lines of requirements for nominees. Pryo 'Zarkum, [iTalk] [iWork] [iWrite] 21:09, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Quit your whining. There are no requirements for being nominated, and if someone thinks the guy deserves it, so be it. You don't have to stand around shrieking "He is not worthy!" — Manticore [ AdminIRCHOTMBot ] 15:32, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Whining? Shrieking? Are you trying to piss people off? Pryo 'Zarkum, [iTalk] [iWork] [iWrite] 19:44, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Yes Manticore has a very good point. However this is a little off-track. I thought Sitheris was a sockpuppet of someone or is that TheSodaFreak? It is definitely one of them which is a sockpuppet of Echo-1337-Rogue or whatever his name is. I however do not care if someone thinks this dude should be nominated then go and do just that. Halo and 24 fan 19:19, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Now that's interesting, a sockpuppet? —This unsigned comment was made by Master Chief Petty Officer (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Ok guys lets just settle down, its not a big deal. Spirit-of-HALO 19:47, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Having sockpuppets is quite a big deal on halopedia. MasterChiefPettyOfficerSpartan Contribution 04:02, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I think it's pretty unlikly that Sitheris will get supported over the other two candidates, so there's no need to complain. Everyone is entitled to a vote. UoH/Command Staff|General]] UserWiki:Simon_rjh|simon]] rjh 09:57, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Agreed. Councilor Εw C 'DnaudeeBattle Net My Editcount 14:02, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm glad someone nominated Simon, I was going to do it myself soon. He's by far the best candidate right now, at least in my opinion. HaloDude 19:13, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Have Simon or Lovemuffin been HOTM before? Banana Cat File:1213452567 Cat-facts.jpg|20px]] Contact meMy Edits Stats 15:43, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Nope, neither of us have. The complete list of HOTMs can be found on the HOTM main page. UoH/Command Staff|General]] UserWiki:Simon_rjh|simon]] rjh 21:00, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Wow, Simonrjh, you swelled up the votes extremelyrapidly. At first, everyone thought that EwCDnaudee419 would have a definite win, but now you are neck-to-neck almost. Congratulations! Sincerely, General ÌṂρεσάḹόґMyVictoriesFile:Cavalier_achievement.gif|28px]] 13:02, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Has anyone found it wierd that the their are two RfAs which have a indirect connection with HOTM (or vice versa), the RfA nominee was nominated as HOTM by the time he was nominated as admin! MasterChiefPettyOfficerSpartan Contribution 11:55, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

No. When they get nominated, people start thinking about all the good things they do and that's when they realize "Hey, he would be great for X". --forgottenlord 16:49, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
I think it's coincidence though. Just my opinion. MasterChiefPettyOfficerSpartan Contribution 07:46, 27 July 2008 (UTC)
