GalaxiaD recommended I check this out. It would be nice to be able to do things like protect pages, block users, merge pages etc., I'm just not sure how much time I can devote to this. Maybe I just need a little more information. I have many positive comments on my talk page, and I always check for vandalism/errors in the late hours, but I'm never here on any particular schedule, and I know I've made some hasty edits in the past. Also I won't be able to edit any SSB articles since I don't have it, and since I usually do this from my Wii, major edits at would require copying and pasting may prove difficult, given how bad my PC is. However, I do play often, and I am very good with the smaller edits like spelling and grammar, even if I'm unlikely to write entire articles or edit specific data such as character matchups, character history, or fan-games. Well, now that I think of it, this isn't a very convincing argument towards my adminship...hmm. Well maybe if others agree, I can find out what is required. - Gargomon251 (talk) 01:16, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Strong Support. The lack of PC thing does suck, but Gargomon has been a true asset to this wiki for some time now. I think he's deserving of the tools if only to make it easier for him to continue doing what he has been. Clarinet Hawk (talk) 01:20, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
Strong Support. You're a great editor. I'm glad to see that you're running. --Posted by Pikamander2 (Talk) at 02:36, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
Strong Support. Heck, I was the one who suggested he try this out in the first place. I truly do believe that he'll make a great sysop. With the tools of an admin at his disposal, there's nothing he won't be able to accomplish. He's the Leonardo da Vinci of SmashWiki. - GalaxiaD (talk) 02:46, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Gargomon has been doing this without a PC for the last six months. If he didn't tell me that he wasn't using a PC, I would never have known. His contributions are great; what does it matter what he's using to make them. Clarinet Hawk (talk) 15:31, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

You know what? Your right. I'm changing my vote to Support Kperfekt722 (talk) 20:50, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Just a note, my PC works, but it's over ten years old, running on Windows2000. I can still make full page edits, but it's not gonna happen very often. Sometime this year I should get a new(er) PC from my brother and then it will be smooth. - Gargomon251 (talk) 02:45, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Neutral Based on the nom and explanation of why he wants the tools, I don't want to support; but there's no reason to oppose. --Charitwo 06:58, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose I really don't see the need. Plus, you even said yourself you can't find the time to do it and it takes to long for you. Why become a sysop if you can't find the time to do it. I would vote support if you didn't bag yourself like that. Zmario (talk) 21:23, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
I just meant no MAJOR edits. Maybe the upcoming Firefox3 launch will make things smoother? - Gargomon251 (talk) 02:03, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Neutral I'm sorry Garg. But have you seen your comments on the Add A Fact talk page? Sure it's okay to correct, but a GOOD sysop would've showed the way to a new user. Instead of flaming, try correcting. Also, control your anger. I prefer IE though... But I heard the Fx3 features are similar to IE. Plus, it kinda makes you more lazy... I mean c'mon. Ctrl+B (not sure if thats the config) just to go to Back when you could just click the arrow up in the left corner. <_< ItemHazard (talk) 01:11, 24 June 2008 (UTC) ItemHazard
Sorry, I know I overreact sometimes, but when it's always the same stupid mistakes, and I even added the disclaimer, even though it's not necessarily the same person every time. I can only be civil so many times before it really gets on my nerves, especially when some of these things seem outright stupid, like the "fact" about Wario-Man flying that's been widely known for well over 5 months or more. And I have no idea what you mean by "ctrl-b". I alwas click the Back arrow or Backspace. What browser is any different? How is that lazy?- Gargomon251 (talk) 05:28, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
