RE: Request for Adminship Edit

If you were previously a bureaucrat or admin, just ask this bureaucrat to give your rights back, you don't need to go through the process all over again if your rights lapsed or you stepped down. -- Ozank (Talk) 13:16, February 20, 2013 (UTC)

I'm going to remove your request for adminship since I am not me should give your rights back whenever he's online next. -- Ozank (Talk) 13:23, February 20, 2013 (UTC)

Policies Edit

The policy regarding cheating evolved from [[Forum: Blocking numbered questions|blocking numbered questions]] to cheating in general. Granted, policy discussions generally shouldn't be done between just two people, but no one else was active at the time. Three new sysops have joined since then, however, and they are aware of and agree with the policy as well (to the best of my knowledge).

I can't think of any other real policy changes that have occurred in your absence, though "best practices" have changed somewhat. For instance, categories are added to questions more conservatively (thus drastically increasing their usefulness). No one redirects questions to Why was my question redirected here anymore, since deleting and protecting the question from creation redirects them there automatically. You may have noticed my bot accidentally deleting your talk page cleaning up the redirects (sorry about that).

Other things that you may or may not have noticed have noticed are:

  • There is now a chat room. It has its own set of (obvious) rules. Beware of bronies
  • I created a new bot that tries to categorize new/recently edited questions. One of the categories should be particularly useful
  • Rollback is now a distinct user group. Sysops as well as bureaucurats can give users rollback rights, rather then having them become admins right away

That's the general plan for new admins, but I don't apply them to older ones unless I know they want them (since most of them are inactive). I'll promote you on them now; it'll take a couple minutes. I am not me (talk) 23:55, February 21, 2013 (UTC)

Welcome Back Edit

Hello, I noticed you've returned from a break, so I thought I'd just give a friendly welcome back message.

Well, it's great to know that more admins are returning! ^_^ - TheUltimateH4M Talk 12:28, February 21, 2013 (UTC)

Brief message Edit

Hey, If you're available, I was wondering if you could enter the chat for a minute so we could speak? Thanks. - TheUltimateH4M Talk 00:28, February 26, 2013 (UTC)

Alright, sounds fair enough. - TheUltimateH4M Talk 00:30, February 26, 2013 (UTC)

On the red card questionEdit

Sorry, I thought it was one of those generic book report questions, I had no idea that he was a soccer player, and the question lacked the tag. My mistake. Nitz X ProfileMessageContr.UploadsBlogs 02:27, February 26, 2013 (UTC)

Kinda important forumEdit

Normally, I wouldn't advertise a discussion, but this one will need some discussion and our forums are obviously pretty inactive: Forum:DeleteRevision. Moʟ Maɴ =;v;= 19:53, February 26, 2013 (UTC)

Title fix for a pageEdit

http://answers.wikia.com/wiki/Who_said_my_goal_is_to_lead_the_firstexpedition_to_sail_around_the_world

For some reason, I cannot fix the part where "firstexpedition" is, I believe it needs a space there, but the resulting page has been "Protected from creation". Is there any way you could maybe fix this? Nitz X ProfileMessageContr.UploadsBlogs 09:36, March 4, 2013 (UTC)

Sure, where does the space need to be? Messi1983 (talk) 09:38, March 4, 2013 (UTC)
"the_firstexpedition_" to should be changed to " the_first_expedition_to" Nitz X ProfileMessageContr.UploadsBlogs 09:42, March 4, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry to bring this up again Edit
