NOTE: Please do not edit above the line below.

Taurolyon Edit


  • Very familiar with Wiki formatting
  • Experience with Wiki Administration through past guild websites
  • Has a lot of time on his hands

Comments on this candidate Edit

  • Undecided - Though there's a long history with the site, it would be nice to see some edits along the lines of new pages and major updates, as well as an increase in number of edits; i.e. more consistent editing pattern. The latter is by no means a deal-breaker, but it would be nice to see more of the former to properly gauge editing ability. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 17:14, February 11, 2011 (UTC)
  • Undecided - Generally high quality edits and good edit summaries. Needs to make more new pages of all types (items, mobs, NPCs, guides, etc.). On the road to having the chops to be an admin, but not quite there yet. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 11 Feb 2011 2:08 PM Pacific
  • Thanks - I'd like to thank you both for the consideration! I'll be devoting more time to edits and page creations. Taurolyon (talk) 20:45, February 13, 2011 (UTC)

Nomination failed Edit

Judging by the lack of any updates in two years, i'm going to assume that the nomination has failed. PacmanNomNomNom Macrophager (talk) 06:24, March 4, 2013 (UTC)

Macrophager Edit

Reasons for nomination:

  • I have experience with creating and editing NPC, Mob, Achievement, Quest, Item, Object and Instance pages.
  • I am very dedicated to do as much as I can to improve and contribute to WoWWiki.
  • I am calm, rational, polite and open to suggestions.
  • I currently have over 1500 edits.

Comments on this candidate Edit

  • Support Consistent editor, despite school schedule. Takes direction/suggestions well and remains calm when dealing with other editors. Has expanded types of pages edited after receiving feedback. Might need some direction with new admin tools, but no reservations... despite being Canadian. Winky Raylan13@fandom (talk) 06:46, January 30, 2013 (UTC)
  • Support Learns quickly, is careful, and asks good questions. He's Canadian!? (hmmm... my dad is Canadian and he seems okay most of the time...) I guess I can live with that. Barring some unforeseen opposition from other users, RyanPT is good admin material. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 31 Jan 2013 5:31 PM Pacific

Nomination confirmed Edit

Congratulations! I'm guessing Raylan and I said all the right things, because no one had anything to add. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 6 Feb 2013 12:36 PM Pacific

RaceLord Edit

Reasons for nomination:

  • I work on the Wiki every day
  • Almost got 1,000 Edits
  • currently only on a Trial account on WoW but can get some hard pictures

--RaceLord (talk) 22:54, December 3, 2011 (UTC)

Comments on this candidate Edit

  • Undecided Since joining and first editing, RaceLord has improved steadily in his editing. There are many contributions over a wide area, and he seems very open to suggestions and direction. Definitely on the way to becoming an admin, and focusing on formatting even more should make all the difference. In the meantime, would support giving RaceLord more responsibility as per Moderator discussion on his talk page. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 03:42, December 6, 2011 (UTC)
  • Shouldn't the old ones be taken out of here? --RaceLord (talk)

Nomination failed Edit

Judging by the lack of support, Racelord's nomination has failed. PacmanNomNomNom Macrophager (talk) 06:21, March 4, 2013 (UTC)

Bubsy87 Edit

Reasons for nomination:

  • Appears to really like Archaeology and has added numerous items.
  • Understands how to format wikitext specific to WoWWiki and is a fast learner.
  • Works fast.

--Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 4 Feb 2011 6:45 PM Pacific

Accepting nomination :) Bubsy87 (talk) 17:16, February 7, 2011 (UTC)

Comments on this candidate Edit

Support - as mentioned, has a number of high-quality edits and also takes direction and suggestions well; contributions are well-written and concise. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 16:35, February 7, 2011 (UTC)

Nomination confirmed Edit

There wasn't much comment, but Bubsy87 is a new admin! --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 4 Mar 2011 6:15 PM Pacific

Servian Edit

Reasons for nomination:

  • a user since Dec. 08
  • a large number of high-quality contributions
  • appears very familiar with markup, including:
    • uploading pictures
    • uploading icons
    • creating quest and item pages

--Raylan13@fandom (talk) 19:32, February 11, 2011 (UTC)

Comments on this candidate Edit

  • Support Needs to add elinks for subzones, but overall a large number of high quality edits and new pages. Could be a little better with edit summaries, but not so important. Needs to fill in user page! --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 11 Feb 2011 2:33 PM Pacific
  • I wasn't really aware subzones required elinks since the one's I've visited didn't have them. I've been trying to learn and understand wiki code, I've contributed over at swg.wikia for awhile. When it comes to JS and CSS I have a very small understanding of those languages. But I might understand them enough to modify part of it in a small way. I try my best not to leave errors. I do sometimes get caught up with editing screenshots, and editing more then 1 page at a time etc I might leave or forget something. Servian (talk) 03:04, February 12, 2011 (UTC)
    Don't sweat the subzone thing. Raylan13 forgets to add elinks for subzones too. Winky --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 19 Feb 2011 10:28 PM Pacific

Nomination confirmed Edit

The community seemed quiet, but Servian is a new admin! --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 4 Mar 2011 6:15 PM Pacific

Fruitmedley Edit

Reasons for nomination:

  • A Lore expert with access to all novels/comics
  • Frequently engages in asking Lore Historians questions, helping define lore.
  • Lots of spare time to provide references

Comments on this candidate Edit

  • Against Even if the largest contribution wasn't merely copying from wowpedia and then getting snarky when those changes were reverted, there is no history of any length detailing contributions to the site. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 03:58, September 28, 2014 (UTC)

Nomination failed Edit

No support given. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 18:08, November 21, 2014 (UTC)

Tankingmage Edit

Reasons for nomination:

  • He currently has 1800+ edits.
  • Is a Lore Expert, Patroller, and Moderator, and has used those responsibilities very well.
  • Takes initiative - especially during BlizzCon, was one of those who made the rest of our job easier
  • Takes direction well; so though he may not have a huge amount of experience with overall template use, this indicates he's got a history of paying attention and learning
  • Has always been level-headed and professional. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 23:41, December 3, 2013 (UTC)
  • Adding to the above, I do have a fairly good understanding of World of Warcraft lore, so this helps with the continuity of articles and ensuring they stay up to date. Obviously using templates would help, but as most of my edits concern lore articles this should be ok. Tankingmage (talk) 00:11, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

Comments on this candidate Edit

  • Support Obviously due to above reasons. Is tenacious against vandals as well. Lore videos are also a plus Winky Templates would be a weak spot, but I don't see that as a make or break issue due to his personality and willingness to learn when needed. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 23:41, December 3, 2013 (UTC)
  • Support It was only a matter of time before this happened. Tankingmage is an asset to this wiki, responsible with his current powers and I believe the wiki would benefit to a promotion to adminship! PacmanNomNomNom Macrophager (talk) 14:30, December 4, 2013 (UTC)
  • Support Makes responsible edits and has wherewithal to develop new content and chase down correctness. Would be helpful to have more coverage on lore and missing pieces from expansions, and the expanded abilities would be very helpful and potentially easy many burdens. Willing to help get up to speed on templates as needed if necessary. Celess (talk) 21:09, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

Barring any last-minute votes that tip this the other direction, I'd like to go ahead and promote Tank by this Thursday (I'll be away on Friday). Raylan13@fandom (talk) 17:36, December 9, 2013 (UTC)

Nomination confirmed Edit

Congratulations! No negative votes, so Tankingmage is our newest admin! Raylan13@fandom (talk) 22:06, December 12, 2013 (UTC)
