Awesomelink234 (talkcontribsedit countRFA page)[edit]

Candidate, please summarize why you are running for adminship below.
Here's my second admin request. I now have over 100 edits and 50 mainspace edits. I'd be on every day and love to help out. I never vandalized once, not counting that one time where I thought Green Hill Zone was not a returning stage in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS until I was proven wrong by an admin. (I think it was Miles.) Awesomelink234 (talk) 12:37, 2 August 2014 (EDT)

  1. You haven't shown that you can do things that are necessary to being an admin on this wiki. Do you know all of the policies well? Do you handle debates professionally? 100 edits is barely anything, there are many active users who have much more edits but still aren't nearly ready to become admins (I have over 10,000 edits; more than 5,000 mainspace edits, yet I'm not even close to deserving adminship).

  2. You don't have enough experience. Still. And remember, editcount does not play that much of a huge role in adminship. Emmett was a bureaucrat, and he only had 137 edits. Most admins have been around for years before requesting, so you should probably wait. Qwerty (talk) 12:46, 2 August 2014 (EDT)
  3. Strong Oppose You based your adminship on your edit count, which as irrelevant as it is, is still a very meager 100 edits and is not at all something noteworthy. Without even looking extensively into your user history, I can see you're already blatantly unqualified based on your description; you never once tell us why you need the admin tools to help us, what you could do with the admin tools and how they would improve your ability to contribute, what you could contribute as an admin that the current admins can't, never show us anything to show how you would know what you're doing with adminship, and never tell us why you're a better admin candidates than other users. Your description is simply "hey I made some edits and am on the wiki a lot, I should have adminship". It does not work that way, you don't get adminship because you're a good user and you want it, you have to actually earn it and prove you having adminship would be a significant boon to the wiki. While the wiki has a severe need for more admins, we will not relax our adminship standards, and I will make sure of it to vehemently prevent users even less qualified than Miles to get adminship. Also, don't make a RfA so soon after your last RfA, that will just make it look like you want adminship for the sake of adminship, and will only guarantee your failure.

I would like to note that repeated RfAs in rapid succession, especially after your potential as an admin hasn't particularly improved, could be seen as disruptive behaviour, something that is considered a blockable offense. If you are still interested in becoming an administrator, I'd recommend looking at what's on this page before trying again.

Oh, and Qwerty: Emmett had 2142 edits on his account as "Shadowcrest" before changing his username to "Emmett".

Emmett/Shadowcrest isn't an example of a competent administrator anyway, as he didn't care much (if at all) for Super Smash Bros. and constantly attacked users on the wiki and on IRC. The former point is probably unbecoming of a contributor in general, but it still stands. Blue Ninjakoopa 13:48, 2 August 2014 (EDT)
