Alright, it's been only a little over 2 months since Garland was promoted to be a temporary administrator of the wiki, caused as a result of inactivity with the other admins. Likewise, it has been a little over one month since Al was promoted for the same purpose. Both promotions were for obvious reasons; they are unbiased, they follow and enforce the rules like they are supposed to, and they are both very experienced with the wiki.
My reasons for this request for a permanent promotion? Well, here they are:
- Like I said above, they are unbiased.
- Both enforce the rules.
- Both are experienced with the wiki.
- They are not afraid to use their admin abilities when it is necessary; dealing with any vandal, harasser, or otherwise malicious user, for example.
- Both have extensive knowledge of coding, and light knowledge of MediaWiki.
- We have a deficiency of administrators, and these two fit the bill on being good admins.
- They show to be very patient; they have waited long and hard for this request, and they haven't lost their cool yet over trolls, harassers, and otherwise malicious users.
- Several users seem to be under the delusion that Al, Garland, Blastshot, and G already been permanently promoted; it is quite the contrary! There simply hadn't been the chance to talk to Jack, Law, or Jarod about it.
For points 1-5, see their contributions for details. For 6-8, see the wiki's activity itself.
As usual, if this passes on the SSC, we move it to a community vote. Please do not fight or otherwise cause drama here, people. Thank you.
