Drilly Dilly (talkcontribsedit countRFA page)[edit]

Candidate, please summarize why you are running for adminship below.
Throughout SmashWiki, I have been excessively active (fun fact, I started this account in 2010, the year Omega and Miles made theirs, but I wasn't on here too often, sadly) and have added a lot of information across the articles; while I'm obviously not the most active user on this wiki (let's face it, others like Aidan and Luigi540 are beyond active in general), I'm active enough to keep the wiki safe and steady. I just wish I got the chance to undo some vandal edits that occur.


  1. ...


  1. Strong/moderate oppose. Unlike the other two current candidates, who are running due to the huge amount of vandalism on the wiki, you are running mainly because of a username conflict. Also, you are severely lacking in skills with both edit and user conflicts, as shown by the OT page (also, see this), and bring up arguments for irrelevant edits that got undid because they were obnoxious. Also, you have issues following guidelines like SW:1RV. You are mediocre as a candidate at best, and while you could be a good one in the future, your weaknesses need serious sharpening. Ganonmew, The Evil Clone 18:47, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
    My position is now slightly more supportive because of the way you calmly ended the OT debate, but remains a stronger-moderate oppose. Ganonmew, The Evil Clone 20:51, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
  2. Slight Oppose While I will say you are capable, with you doing some great work as it is so far, I will have to agree with Ganonmew that you do have some things to work out, especially since I had to step in to the OT argument, otherwise it just would've kept going until an admin stepped in and threw in some penalties. Again, you are capable, but there are things you should work on first before considering to be admin. Disaster Flare (talk) 18:58, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
  3. Oppose Again, your points of becoming admin are weak. Granted, you are a good and active contributor, but I find you lacking admin-like qualities. Dots (talk) 60% tech skill, 30% crazy, 10% you name it. :P The Shiny red nose 19:18, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
  4. Oppose. Far too inexperienced, no apparent need for admin tools, and next-to-zero credible claims of conflict management/resolution. Miles (talk) 19:20, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
  5. Oppose. Extremely good contributor and user in general, but no evidence of a need for adminship or its tools. Nyargleblargle (Talk · Contribs) 19:55, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
  6. Oppose. You have 0 experience. I correct your edits very frequently and you have no conflict resolution. SerpentKing (talk) 20:45, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
    Also, of the 3 RfAs out there, I feel like you would be the most likely to abuse the admin power. No, work on your resolution skills and your editing skills...A lot...then try again. SerpentKing (talk) 20:53, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
  7. Strong oppose, now I don't know you, but the points you addressed in your application were quite weak. I don't see where you'd need it, judging that you were inactive if I read correctly for a while, and there's better candidates in my opinion. F0rZ3r0F0r (talk) 01:07, 22 October 2015 (EDT)
  8. Strong oppose, Who are you again? You sound naive. You are inexperience in disputes and other admin required material. I never see you do something special. Luigi540 (talk) 01:37, 22 October 2015 (EDT)


  1. ...


  • Could you link to any dispute resolution attempts you've made? It doesn't necessarily matter whether or not they were adhered to, I'd just like to see your approach. Nyargleblargle (Talk · Contribs) 18:44, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
What do you mean? - Drilly Dilly 19:44, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
It means can you link to any arguments you settled? Ganonmew, The Evil Clone 19:45, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
You mean vandalism or disputes and debates in general? Drilly Dilly 19:48, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
The second. Ganonmew, The Evil Clone 19:49, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
Sadly, no. (it seems I'm getting genuinely hated throughout this wiki) Drilly Dilly 19:52, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
It's not hated, however, you lack a lot of experience and skill on the wiki. Ganonmew, The Evil Clone 20:50, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
Agreed. I lack just as much experience as you, which is why I'm avoiding running for admin for the time being. Disaster Flare (talk) 20:53, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
I said it seemed that I am hated. Drilly Dilly 21:47, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
I know, I was just saying that you're not hated, this was just a bad time for you to run, and you need more experience, and that's the same reason I avoided doing it. Disaster Flare (talk) 21:49, 21 October 2015 (EDT)

Question for all three users with active RfAs: Did all three of you apply for adminship as a response to the recent vandalism that has been going around? Dots (talk) 60% tech skill, 30% crazy, 10% you name it. :P The Happy 21:19, 21 October 2015 (EDT)

I did not (so it kind of upsets me because so many people assumed I did). Like I said in the post, I've been tossing the idea around since SK gave up because I feel like we need another admin. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by BOO! Or maybe Nutta. 21:32, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
Eh, sorry about that then. Recently since there are three RfAs and two RfRs going around during this week with quite recent vandalism going about, I would suppose that these users want to have additional tools to combat these vandals. Dots (talk) 60% tech skill, 30% crazy, 10% you name it. :P The Zerg Rush 21:41, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
An assumption easily drawn does not necessarily make it correct. SerpentKing (talk) 21:45, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
I think I'll just be better off doing a RFR request rather than RFA. Drilly Dilly 21:45, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
Am I allowed to mark this for speedy del? Drilly Dilly 21:46, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
No, but you can withdraw it. SerpentKing (talk) 21:48, 21 October 2015 (EDT)

(Reset indent) So it seems like all three RfAs are not doing so well. Hmm. Dots (talk) 60% tech skill, 30% crazy, 10% you name it. :P The Snoopy 21:56, 21 October 2015 (EDT)

Withdraw? Drilly Dilly 22:16, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
Your RfA does not look good at the moment so if you would like too, go ahead. Dots (talk) 60% tech skill, 30% crazy, 10% you name it. :P The Windows 22:25, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
I might keep mine up. Yes, at the time, I put it up because of the recent vandalism, but I believe that I can use the other tools for good use. Changing the head icon used. No biggie.Aidan, Master of Speed and AuraPer Request, for User:Aidanzapunk. 22:33, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
No, I mean, define the word 'withdraw' in this case (not as in take money from your bank account). Drilly Dilly 23:33, 21 October 2015 (EDT) back out. SerpentKing (talk) 23:43, 21 October 2015 (EDT)
Seriously, can someone please get rid of this godforsaken request page? - Drilly Dilly 01:56, 22 October 2015 (EDT)

(Reset indent)Is this supposed to be here forever? - Drilly Dilly 02:01, 22 October 2015 (EDT)

User would like this Withdrawn. There. Toomai will see that and it will be archived in failed RfAs soon. SerpentKing (talk) 02:03, 22 October 2015 (EDT)
I feel embarrassed right now. - Drilly Dilly 02:05, 22 October 2015 (EDT)
