From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search


Once again I am running for the sysop nomination. I hope I could become a sysop because of the massive amounts of time I am on wikia. I know a lot bout all three games and own the startegy guides. I am always decribed as creative and outgoing. That is why you have seen me more obn lately. Once my school lets out can come online all the time and contribute to the already great Super Smash Bros Wikia! I want to be able to ban/block someone for spamming or doing other non-appropriate things on articles. I have been here since march and I know my way around the site. I upload pictures and find and flush out baddies. If you ask me this is the new Improved Zmario. Zmario v0.2 BABY!

Support. Eh, you've made enough edits. Kperfekt722 (talk) 10:54, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
Oppose - You are far too quick to anger, and attempting to circumvent the block that Silver placed on you was inappropriate (not that I agree with the block, naturally). --Sky (t · c · w) 07:01, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
Support. I'm none too familiar with Zmario's past, since I've only been here for two months. However, I know that he's worked hard during all the time he's been here. Sure, he may have once personally attacked others and made joke pages, but I believe he has changed. He has acquired responsibility, a trait that is very important for adminship. Heck, I believe it to be a requisite. We can all learn to forgive and forget, right? Zmario has admitted that he's a new person, and his contributions have grown. Let's give him the power of adminship. - GalaxiaD (talk) 18:13, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose Maybe next time, I don't want a fellow sysop with temperament issues. --Charitwo 06:56, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose Well, I'm changing my opinion. Judging by your attitude most of the time, and daring to ask if an system operator can ban other system operators, which leads to malicious ideas. Plus, you're far too easy to anger. (Wolf O'Donnell (talk · contributions) 07:29, 26 June 2008 (UTC))
I'm sorry to have to say this, but it's just too soon after your ban for me to be sure that you've changed. Keep up the editing and working with the wiki and maybe have another go at this in a few months. Right now, however, I have to oppose. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 01:58, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose This guy keeps teetering on the fence between "helpful" and "dear God, what are you doing??" While contributions have greatly improved, there have been many rules broken, multitudes of trivial articles created, and a lot of petty arguments and problems with users. Maybe after a few years of maturation, this one might be ready for something like this. Maybe. FyreNWater - (TalkContributions ) 06:05, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

SupportHe's made a lot of good edits. Yes he gets angry, but don't we all? Don't we all? Ike6481 (talk) 20:32, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Oppose - You already applied, failed and were banned in the interim. Since, you have demonstrated little more than the ability to cater your contributions to avoid being banned again. And somehow, you don't know how to use a talk page to keep a discussion all in one place either. How did we end up with MULTIPLE people applying for SysOp positions who don't understand how to hold a conversation through utilizing a simple user tool like the watchlist? Honestly, do you people even know what a SysOp is? Why do you want this position, really? What good is it going to do you in your day-to-day SmashWiki contributions? It's not even worth it for me to spend this time writing an opposing voice on the issue, but there's so many people who come on here with a shoddy application that doesn't really say anything and then they go around to all their buddies and ask "hey, come comment on my sysop thing." And of course, not wanting to be rude, they blindly follow the orders and drop in to say "Support - he makes good edits" without the slightest idea of what a SysOp even is. It just gives me a headache. Please, focus on your work as a user--if you're an enthusiastic editor, odds are you'd be better off learning how to use the buttons you already have without having to worry about a bunch of extra ones that could end up breaking the entire wiki in the wrong hands. --RJM Talk 20:49, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Support I'm pretty new here so I haven't known about Zmario's past, but he makes more then enough edits to become a sysop. JtM (talk) 21:41, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

I'm going to have to make a move to close this one as failed. Some users seem to support him, but none of the current sysops do. Any objections to closing this should be placed below this comment. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 14:31, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
These should all be closed, really. --RJM Talk 05:16, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
I really think this should still be up till we get a leaning towards one side... Kperfekt722 (talk) 05:02, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
It doesn't matter. The balance of supporters and non-supporters has nothing to do with who is selected. Ever since people began calling people out to come "vote" for them, this process has looked like nothing more than a popularity contest. --RJM Talk 05:21, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
Well, randall for once i agree with you. at least partially anyway. due to people being told to run for sysop this page has been a lot bigger, but in anycase, zmario hasn't let his temper get out of hand in a while, and he is one of the (if not the most) active contributer on this wiki today. Kperfekt722 (talk) 01:04, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Support Creating certain articles that actually helped me. Sorry for my fanboy personality. ItemHazard (talk) 01:14, 24 June 2008 (UTC) ItemHazard

Uh, I have yet to see why he should be voted. He's too quick to anger, and I have a feeling that he would be malicious. (Wolf O'Donnell (talk · contributions) 20:12, 26 June 2008 (UTC))
