I have a problem about a wiki page, and I've decided to turn to an admin for help. Here's what's up my mind.
On the wiki page called the SpongeBob SquarePants timeline, there are a lot of things that have been messed up. The comments are mostly unrelated to SpongeBob. I think you should delete them, as they mostly just talk about the Mario games timeline, which is totally unrealted. They should go on the Mario wiki or something.
Then there's the problem with the timeline itself. I'm confused how Mr. Krabs can still be alive to open the Krusty Krab 2 if it takes place in 2030 or so. Also, Spongebob would have long been an adult, not a kid teenager. I think you should put a tag about a clean up, because it really is messed up.
I just wanted to let you know that I have talked with the bureaucrats and others in Skype and we feel that you would be in a better position under "assistant" instead of "administrator."
Basically, you would have all the tools of an administrator except blocking and deleting. If you take a look at this special page, you can see the list of user groups.
Here is the list of things that you can do as an assistant:
Change protection levels and edit protected pages (protect)
Edit semi-protected pages (autoconfirmed)
Have one's own edits automatically marked as patrolled (autopatrol)
Move blog articles (blog-articles-move)
Move files (movefile)
Not be affected by rate limits (noratelimit)
Not create redirects from source pages when moving pages (suppressredirect)
Override the spoofing checks (override-antispoof)
Override the title blacklist (tboverride)
Perform CAPTCHA-triggering actions without having to go through the CAPTCHA (skipcaptcha)
Quickly rollback the edits of the last user who edited a particular page (rollback)
Search deleted pages (browsearchive)
Upload files from a URL (upload_by_url)
Use higher limits in API queries (apihighlimits)
View a list of unwatched pages (unwatchedpages)
View deleted history entries, without their associated text (deletedhistory)
View deleted text and changes between deleted revisions (deletedtext)
Remove group from own account: assistant
So you see, you still have many abilities. We feel that this would be best suited for you, as an in-between user and administrator, since many people have questioned your actions. I just wanted to talk to you about this before the change is made.
Well, I sort of like the idea. But, maybe you should read this thread I made about me blocking a user. Also, the pages I have deleted have a good reason to be deleted such as when it's fanon page or a spam page.
Hoesntly, I think you're better suited as an assistant. I've heard that you recently blocked yourself again and an admin shouldn't abuse the blocking tool by doing that (and you were warned about that in the past). Also, it still seems like you try to avoid directly answering questions when someone askes you one.
Now, I've been mostly inactive from this wiki for the past few months, but upon recently returning, and viewing what's been going on, I was shocked to see some behaviorial actions you have taken.
You are an administrator. You are equal with all other users, with just a few extra buttons and links to take care of actions that require a user a decent level of maturity.
However, you have done some things which make not just me, but several others, question your maturity, and therof, your administrator status.
Yelling at a user, a user who hasn't edited in almost a year, because they don't edit as much as you do does not make them less of a SpongeBob fan. In fact, I question your true "fan-ness" of SpongeBob, as being rude, harsh, and judgemental are not character traits that are exemplified in this show.
(This just being on of several immature actions you have taken)
This wiki needs mature admins, and if you do not learn to make mature actions, there could be future consequences.
I earnestly hope you don't brush this message off, and deeply consider it's contents.
Please stop freaking out about things like a user who states they are a big fan. That is petty, and it's not what Administrators should be doing.
Everyone is entitled to state who they are and what they do (to a certain point) so there is no need to go crying on that inactive users wall. You have 14,378 edits on ESB, and 120d has more, so therefore, I could state you are not a true SpongeBob diehard, but I'm not going to, because I've the moral to not.
You mean in this thread? I was not saying that user was a bad person or anything. It's just that the user joined the wiki around the time I was blocked 1 month from editing (end of March/early April of 2014).
I have been asked to block a user more than once. The first time a blocking thread that happened in my message was removed. And the second block thread I got was asking me about blocking TheImaginativeS. The next time you ask me about blocking a user, I will first see what recent edits this user has done. After that, I may give it some time or I'll make a block request to see if the rest of the community agrees or not.
Making a block request lets me see if the rest of the community agrees or not with a user's actions. A long time ago, I made a block request for Keylonrocks although the block was not a success because I wasn't really thinking smart that day.
