Clarinet Hawk[edit]

Hey everyone, I'm Aaron Kirschner, known on the smash wiki as Clarinet Hawk. I'm putting myself up for sysop nomination because I fell that I would be a good addition to our already great set of admins. I have focused heavily on gameplay elements during my time here. My notable additions include the pages on Spring Canceling and Guard Breaking, as well as being active in the discovery and research of the SLAPASTICK and SLAPAYO glitches. I have also made numerous additions to the general properties of different attacks and techniques. In addition to my work with the game play elements of Smash Bros, I have spent time almost every day for the past few months doing general spot checks of the wiki. When I see problems, I add the necessary templates and/or fix the problems. While I try to do everything I can to make the wiki better, I also understand the need to encourage newer users to contribute. As such, when I see problems, I err on the side of showing the newer editors the best way to make their article(s) meaningful rather than simply do it myself. Of course, whenever I see vandalism, I revert it and notify an admin of the offender.

As for why I should be a sysop, I feel that my contributions speak for themselves. I have always maintained a professional manner and writing style. In addition to these, I have done my part to discuss important issues on both the talk pages and the forums. In terms of my primary area of gameplay, I am technically advanced player. While this may seem like a strange thing to determine sysopship based on, I mention it only to prove the fact that should a debate over the effectiveness or existence of a technique arise, I have the means to recreate and test it. I am also part of a crew that has been able to perform every legitimate technique. Therefore, I can test almost any proposed technique or strategy to resolve conflict. Beyond the gameplay elements, my daily checks of the smash wiki occasionally encounter vandalism or other pages that merit deletion. While I nominate these whenever I see them, it would be more efficient if I had the ability to watch the debate of the pages and delete them myself. I would still give every page the benefit of the doubt and allow ample time for defense of the page. As a final note, I have a photographic memory, making it quite easy for me to spot changes to pages and remember names of editors. This has been invaluable in quickly recognizing vandalism and vandals. I request to become a sysop so I can do my part to better this great wiki. Thank you.

  • Neutral with strong leaning to support - The only reason it's not a full support are all the edits you've made to your page, Slapayo and Slapastick combined with a "low" edit count. Otherwise, I think this candidate would benefit from the tools, and I'm certain he could have used them earlier today. :) --Sky (t · c · w) 03:18, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

::I have to agree with Sky here. While Aaron has helped quite a bit, I'm just not sure if he's the right person. I don't have anything bad to say about him, though. FyreNWater - (TalkContributions ) 05:16, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Support Come to think of it, I think Aaron would be a good addition. FyreNWater - (TalkContributions ) 01:53, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Strong Support Hes a very nice guy. Nuff said.Zmario (talk) 20:36, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Strongly Support While Clarniet Hawk and I have not got on well in the past, he is a great asset to this wiki, and has made it vastly better, and seems to be pretty helpful to newcomers. His one downfall, however, is that he does not appreciate the brilliance that is Ike! Ike6481 (talk) 14:41, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Strong Support. I thought he already WAS an admin! - Gargomon251 (talk) 01:18, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Support. He is a very active member, whom is serious about his work, and kind with editing, he also gets the jobs done. (Wolf O'Donnell (talk) 01:54, 9 June 2008 (UTC))

Strong Support. I know the guy personally. He's a talented player, he loves the game, and he has far too much time on his hands. Makes for a good combination, no? Semicolon (talk) 14:17, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Support He has made more then enough contributions. Kperfekt722 (talk) 03:53, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Support He has something which most editors here don't,a brain!Hes very level headed and makes good judgment based on good reasons.I was surprised when he wasn't one! Hatake91 (talk) 22:59, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Strong Support. He's a talented player and a very knowledgable person. He could put these traits to real fine use by becoming a sysop. It's a great combination that will get the job done. - GalaxiaD (talk) 23:07, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

  • Uhh... Everyone is supporting or leaning towards this... Good enough? Kperfekt722 (talk) 22:02, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
    I'll ask one of our bureaus to close this one. --Sky (t · c · w) 22:08, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
