P.J. GT (talk | contribs | logs) I am requesting rights for admin because these vandal attacks are getting out of hand and harming the wiki and its users entirely with the lewd content they love putting in, as we are getting ever closer to Splatoon 3's release. Having these rights will help lessen the damage the vandals do when other admins are busy and can't take action immediately due to being in different timezones. P.J. GT(talk) 11:28, 1 August 2022 (UTC)

Reasons to promote me:

  • I am VERY active and make contributions that are helpful.
  • I view the Recent Changes page often to check if the new edits are up to wiki policy standards.
  • If I spot vandals, I will immediately block them and splat their destructive edits.
  • I am polite to other fellow wiki members.

Support

Oppose

  1. When you were reasonably accused of being the fart vandal, instead of calmly explaining why you weren't the vandal, you kind of overreacted and went on the defensive side. I'm not saying you are the vandal, but this example shows to me that you aren't ready to be an admin if you react this way to being accused. robot0625(talk) 06:55, 7 August 2022 (UTC)
  2. I want to be clear that I am not using bureaucrat 'final say' here. To prevent writing too much in the voting section I'll put thoughts in comments below. Slate Talk Contribs 00:06, 15 August 2022 (UTC)

Comments

  • @Robot0625 @P.J. GT Yeah, I agree that it is kind of weird that you (P.J. GT) are always online when the vandal attacks happen and only edit the wiki when the vandal attacks occur. To be honest, you could definitely be behind the vandal attacks to try to get yourself promoted to Admin. It's really weird that you're the only staff member online when the attacks happen. I agree that many admins are very inactive and the wiki could use another one, but why not a more active patroller like Exaskliri? Recently you've barely done anything on the wiki except writing fan-fiction and fixing the vandal attacks that you may have caused. Sorry, but I cannot support your request for Admin rights.

@User:Eminence; I am TOTALLY NOT the vandal and I want this wiki to be perfect and safe from harassment like this. The reason I'm online often is because I can fix minor misinformation and revert vandalism the instant its submitted (that's the reason I got patroller rights in the first place). I always want to be positive and polite and would NEVER demand someone to do something THAT disgusting and discriminate people. Also, the reason I've not made many edits in the mainspace is because of the bare bones info we have on Splatoon 3, someone else doing it and me being busy with real life stuff. Hope this clears this up and Stay Fresh! P.J. GT(talk) 14:27, 7 August 2022 (UTC)
@P.J. GT Your argument contradicts itself. You say that you are online often to combat the vandals, but then say that you are also busy with IRL stuff later to defend why you've not made many mainspace edits. If you're so busy with IRL stuff, then how are you online every single time there's a vandal? robot0625(talk) 19:50, 7 August 2022 (UTC)
@Robot0625; I mean "IRL stuff" by being asleep when the attacks often happen or I don't notice them until I check the recent changes page. Today I decided to check it at around 4:50AM (my time) and THAT'S when the vandal's attack started. I am being completely honest here. 😰

@Eminence; Please don't accuse a wiki user of being an imposter, as I have been on the wiki five months more than you and I've been helping the wiki ever since (Check my User Contributions to see proof). Plus I don't even know who this vandal is, OR where they live as they abuse a VPN, which my household DOESN'T even have. AND I follow the Multiple accounts policy "by the book" so I never made another account on either my tablet or phone (I use this account on both devices FYI). PLUS, this vandal loves to harass me on my talk page due to me reverting their vandalism and has impersonated me quite a few times in the past. — Preceding unsigned comment added by P.J.

@P.J. GT I am so sorry if my comments came across the wrong way. I was not trying to accuse you of being the vandal, but was stating my opinion on the request for rights, and asking for a better definition of IRL stuff (which you provided). Again, I don't think you are the vandal, and I would never accuse someone without 100% proof. robot0625(talk) 22:27, 7 August 2022 (UTC)
  • P.J. GT has been active for a long time, has made massive contributional edits and plenty of small ones. Reported spammers and vandals countless times and have been enforcing wiki policies for a very long time. I think it has been long overdue for him to get admin rights. The timings of the reverts are suspicious at most but are not concrete evidence. If things go awry, actions would be taken accordingly. Shahar (talk) 11:28, 13 August 2022 (UTC)
  • Hi P.J. GT, here's a breakdown of my thoughts:
For:
  • You are consistently active
  • You have indeed made many positive contributions to the wiki
  • Assuming the vandal is not you or someone you know IRL, you have reported the vandal attacks in record-breaking time; it would be useful for you to have block and delete privileges
  • You seem to report a lot to Shahar; I suppose going forward while you find your feet as admin that you would continue to do this? We are a united admin team and quite a lot of decisions are seconded by the team
  • The wiki is currently short on active admins.
Against:
  • The suspicion around vandalism and sockpuppeting has not been cleared up
  • You seem to know about the vandal's VPN, would you mind explaining more?
  • I am uneasy about you having admin privileges, as I do not trust what you will do with the power. The admin team is a united team and with a drastic personality clash around LGBTQ may cause problems
  • I'm not sure why you really like your caps lock?
  • "Lewd" content? I'm not sure I'm seeing the connection between farts and bad language and lewd...
  • Are you on Discord? (This is not a requirement but it does make it easier to co-ordinate)
  • The RfR page notes "You act responsibly and calmly when vandals and spammers strike." however shouting at admins to fix it immediately is not calm.
  • What projects have you led or want to lead? A big part of being an admin are these initiatives that make Inkipedia better. What is your motivation for being an admin, with the exception of vandal fighting?

@Slate; About the VPN, I only know they have one as they have bragged about it during one of their attacks back in Summer 2020 and my household doesn't even have one. Also, what do you mean by "caps lock"? P.J. GT(talk) 00:44, 15 August 2022 (UTC)

  • LGBTQ is not a swear and only a part of it covers trans people that you made 'safe'? Why did you feel the need to change my comment?
  • Do you remember what user bragged about the VPN, and where?
  • And caps lock, like "I am TOTALLY NOT the vandal" and "household DOESN'T even have", and that's on this page alone. Shahar's talk also includes "Also PLEASE splat the files [...], AND the pages", or on Fumpl's talk. It just says to me that you're not ready for admin.
