  • OK, I have 2 names that I want to suggest. This are GoC and Masa. The reasons are:

    1. Prescoper is not that much active as he once was (no offense Pres, you might have other priorities)

    2. Both of them have been VERY helpful in so many ways.... 

    3. Both of them are MATURE and RESPONSIBLE people, dedicated to the game in more than 1 way. And on the top of that they are from different time zones. 

    4. We need more than 1 admin to take care of this wikia. The recent argues started or inflamed by haters and/or "wikis contributors" are not in the spirit of what once was this group about.

    I am sure that most of you might have more reasons to vote for or against them. Let's just hear your voice. I also know that a lot of the said haters/wikia contributors will not agree with what I said, but who gives a rats ass? I don't

    • We can't vote for Zacher2005?

      Either works, but do they want to do it?

        Loading editor
    • I am willing to accept the responsibility if it is given to me.

        Loading editor
    • Either or both of these guys...........here's a thought, maybe we need a "board of directors" per say.  maybe not all of them have admin rights but decisions could be made with a majority votes regarding content, flaming threads, etc.  

        Loading editor
    • I agree with 13th prime, maybe a small group of say 3 admins. That way if there is a decision to be made just as I dont know deleting, locking posts etc, there can be a quick and easy vote.

      Either way, I like both the names put up here. 2 Ayes from me.

      As a passing note, in lieu of my suggestion for 3 admins for voting puposes, I would also like to put forward Coholips18's name as a 3rd suggestion. If he is interested of course.

    • Nice Hypno... and I'm touched C-Kat. If people really want to deal with me at that level.....

      There are lots of good people on here, Greygoose963 is another person who is very reasonable and rational.

      but actually, I'm changing my vote to A Wikia Contributor, their posts are always the most helpful to people, and they are very informative.

        Loading editor
    • I await a slew of Wikia contributors voting no on me. Please do.

      I said I'd accept the job, but it wouldn't remotely sadden me if I wasn't chosen, even if it was because of you.

        Loading editor
    • I'd elect you guys, cuz I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole ;)

      In seriousness though, you guys have been some of the most active, and most helpful (see blogs), around. And being T1, we know you are involved. I would like to see a bit more moderation than retaliation, but damn if I certainly understand it!

    • I am zacher2005, can't log in for some reason or another. I voted no for GOC because he was a friggin bully on here not but a month ago to people who disagreed with him telling everyone how he "smacked them down" and :brought it" or some crap.

      Messa, while I disagree with him on a certain subject, is calm and collected.

        Loading editor
    • I'm not a vengeful person, but I'm accustomed to forums with very strict moderation (MTGSalvation, for those familiar with it, is the one I frequented most). I'll just say that, by those standards, I will be a moderate moderator. :)

    • And I wasn't 'trolling" there just stating my opinion.

        Loading editor
    • I would love it, Mr. Zacher, if you could locate these posts for me, where you felt I was "a friggin bully ... to people who disagreed with him" and where I told everyone how I "smacked them down" or whatever.

      Please. I'm curious as to exactly what I did that has offended you to such an immense and intense degree.

    • Assuming the above parties wish to have these duties placed upon them, I think all three have proven to be active, responsible and will work with in the best interest of this wiki.

        Loading editor
    • Pretty much your whole posting style a month ago, I am sure I am not the only one who has noticed you toning it down lately. I'm not going to go search back, but I will tell you it was around the time people started giving you crap on here.


      Either way I think you are too emotional and would be a bad choice, but wouldn't suprise me how some of you act as if willard1976 behaivior is ok, but give slack to others who aren't involved with this site as much.

      Not trying to pick a fight but say my opinion. I think when addressed with people's opinions you tend to get heated. I was impressed when I talked to Mesa in the chat and he explained his opinion on the itsme5712 subject and didn't come across as abrassive.

        Loading editor
    • Any suggestions of who the Wiki Admin is?

        Loading editor
    • I think you only consider my opinions "abrasive" because you don't like them.

      I have not "toned down" my posting. I just don't reply passively to insults directed at me for no legitimate reason. If that's being "too emotional" or whatever other negative term you wish to give it, whatever.

      I wouldn't moderate against someone for strictly being insulting towards me. However, if you tell me to kill myself or something nearly as harsh, I would not hesitate to use my power.

        Loading editor
    • BTW for the record I am not the person who told you that, and I don't honestly know who is.

        Loading editor
    • I vote yes for both.

      @GOC

      I thought you said you didn't enjoy positions of power, but if you are willing.

      @Zacher2005

      GOC is generally a cool guy. What happened in the last month between you and him was honestly a surprise to me.

      @Sonny

      I noticed you have been registered for less than 1 month. I don't object to your nominations but isn't it a bit early for you to be nominating people you just met?

      He was here for a long time - created a new account so that others can recognise him better. His previous one was "Plain Me"

    • So, do you not want it anymore Pres, or are just looking for help?

        Loading editor
    • Of course I want help lol. Hard to play a few games at once and doing this xD

    • Oh I imagine, but I hadn't heard it mentioned before. Wanted to make sure nobody was booting you if you didn't want to be booted.

        Loading editor
    • @HypnoCT, for not a single moment I wanted Pres booted. As per my motivations, at #4. "We need more than 1 admin to take care of this wikia. The recent argues started or inflamed by haters and/or "wikis contributors" are not in the spirit of what once was this group about". Just wanted to suggest a few more "hands" to help the wiki. Everybody is more or less busy. With only 1 admin really involved (since DinoKev is MIA for a while now) I considered that he could use some help.

    • I'm cool with both GoC and Masa. GoC has been nothing but helpful to me and other's with all his contributions to us for this game and could have kept it all to himself but was happy to share and Masa was my first T1 ally and accepted my ally request back in the day when my DP was only 9500 and I was struggling to make T2. I was very grateful to  have him as an ally as he was the type of player I aspired to be.

      Ok you two that's enough kissing ass from me. LOL

        Loading editor
    • I vote yes to both. Masa is a easy choice and GoC, although more controversial, is also a yes. I will say that GoC did get pretty heated during a time last month but his normal self is generally the more moderate one. In addition, even during his times of disagreement he didn't (to my knowledge) ask to have people banned or misuse his chat mod role.

      Thank you Coho for the vote but I don't think I have the technical know-how to track down wiki issues beyond trying to keep people in line. If there is more interest for me being a Mod then I'll consider it.

    • Hi guys. Thanks for the support. I'm happy to step up if required and members are in agreement.

        Loading editor
    • I agree with GoC, Masa and Coho. All of them are generous with their knowledge and always helped people when required.

    • Masa: Yes

      GoC: No

        Loading editor
    • As I stated earlier, there are a lot of really good candidates on this wiki for admins or a committee. It really is a question of what route people want to go, and if those people want that responsibility (obviously). I have a list of 5-10 people that I feel would be very good candidates, but I will hold off for now.

      Masa and GoC have my vote and my full support as admins. Both are active, extremely knowledgeable, and very helpful. I have never seen either of them turn someone down when asked a game related question, here or in chat.

      I am not sure exactly where GoC got his “so-called” bad rep with some people… are people afraid that they will be blocked or banned if GoC becomes a wiki admin or something? He has stated he has no problem with people not liking him, or people not agreeing with him, but he does have a right to defend himself or his friends – anyone does if they want. I bet if you had a problem with him, and wanted to fix it like adults, he would listen to you, but if you come at someone with a shit-ass attitude, expect a shit-ass attitude in return. It doesn’t change the fact that he knows more than a very high majority of people, and helps out more people than I even know.

      As far as bans, only 1 person deserves it so far from what I have seen, but that is a topic for another thread, and one that I won’t start.

    • isn't there a distinction between a wiki admin (for the encyclopedia style info, etc, like Andrews1021 is boss at, where Pre has been shining) and a forums admin (which we don't have really)? There are a lot of active forums people who contribute very little to the wiki itself (which is fine).

      Masa is an all-around jedi, he has my vote.

      This. Guys, I'm opinionated and knowledgeable. I'm not whatever evil despot some try to paint me as.

      As I've said before, I give what I get from people. If you're going to insult me for expressing an opinion, you may not like what you see from me. If you're going to harass one of my friends, I will defend that friend against all harassers.

      That being said, I am mature and intelligent enough to separate the "forum denizen" from the "moderator." The forum I am most familiar with had past problems relating to moderator abuse of power, and it is something I am sensitive to.

      Should I become moderator of this forum, I will be open in all my actions. I'm not a person who hides things, ever.

      We need a team of admins as i've stated above.  GoC is upfront and if he disagrees with you he won't back down like many of us on here and other people just like to argue, debate, etc.  I don't know Masa but he's active in chat and has contributed to this wiki quite a bit.  I think BS on this wiki should be kept to a minimum which is why I think a team would be good as that would help keep one admin from making decisions on his/her own opinions of a certain user/contributor.  Honestly, If I was an admin I'd delete BS right away because it gets old and i'm all about the game, but i don't feel it should be entirely my call to delete posts etc.  Again both these gentleman are great candidates as they're contributors to this wiki and i'm positive both and other elected admins could work together to help keep this wiki a great place to come and get great info.

    • Masa: Yes

      GoC: On the fence, but my gut tells me he is alright, so I will say Yes and see what happens.

      Coho: No.

      Disagreeing with me is fine, I get that a lot, but when you start attacking me as a person, that is not acceptable. I won't vote for people that attack ANYONE personally, or discipline people for just disagreeing with them. Moderators MUST be above that.

      My apologies. I didn't realize that. Consider my previous comment retracted.

      @Piggy76

      The two categories are admin and chat moderator. Admins have control over all aspects of the wiki while moderators are limited to the chat room (they have no authority in the forums).

      Just for clarity, I am neither an admin nor a moderator. I am/was simply an active contributor who knows a few tricks.

      Thanks for the compliment though.

      Ha, so I guess a cuddle is also out of the question?

      Honestly, I am indifferent about people voting for me - although it is appreciated. If needed and asked, I know I could help. If not, there are many ways to help this community without being an admin. I won’t stop doing what I can either way.   

      If people really want to consider me, and since I just started to post more on these forums, I can give some insight to my background and experience. Until then, we can decide to vote on a committee or these 2 as new admins, or both.

    • Put me on the books as voting for GoC and Masa as well.  I know I haven't been as active as I could be on the Wiki itself, but I read the posts and have learned a great deal from both.  They have put in the time and effort to learn this game inside and out and truthfully care about our community.  I think they'd be great in helping Pres with the site.  Cheers guys, and congrats that this subject has compelled me to post for the first time!

        Loading editor
    • So, the conclusion is that Masa was voted for by all of you, while GoC had a few no, but the most that expressed their opinion, are OK with him too. I suggest to close this post and have Pres do what he has to do and get those 2 new admins busy. Let me be the first to congratulate them

        Loading editor
    • Congrats Masa! Congrats GoC! If anything, add Coho too. I've read some of his post and they all seem very insightful and helpful. 

      I also would like to nominate Ranoake. He's got technical know-how which could really be helpful for a lot of people. 

      I know @SonnyCiccone suggested to close this thread already, but for whatever my post is worth, i'd like to share my opinion as well. :)
