Nuke The Earth[edit]

Voice your opinion Yes check.svg.png Done!

(10/0/1) 100% Approval; Ended 00:00, 22 December 2020 (UTC)

Nuke The Earth does a very good job of patrolling Recent Changes for vandalistic, unbalancing, or otherwise problematic edits. He's quick to revert unconstructive edits, and frequently notifies administration on the Discord server when he feels further action needs to be taken. I feel that granting Nuke admin perms would greatly assist him in his maintenance work and thus greatly benefit the site. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 19:33, 14 December 2020 (MST)

Candidates Prelude
Questions for the candidate

Dear candidate, thank you for offering to serve D&D Wiki in this capacity. Please take the time to answer a few generic questions to provide guidance for voters:

1. What sysop chores do you anticipate helping with? Please read the page about administrators and the administrators' reading list on Wikipedia before answering.
A: For the most part, I don't believe I'll be jumping into the role of an admin immediately. If I am entrusted with those tools, I must first learn how to use them in order to actually contribute meaningfully to the wiki. That said, it's entirely possible and even probable that I will use said tools to further deal with problematic edits as needed, such as by hiding inappropriate edits and blocking those who made them. I will make a point of checking with more experienced administrators before doing anything I have little to no experience with.
2. Of your articles or contributions to D&D Wiki, are there any with which you are particularly pleased, and why?
A: Death Coil (5e Spell) is, if I recall correctly, one of the first spells I made a complete rewrite of. I believe it has an excellent degree of utility while remaining balanced, and I think I did well in capturing the theme of the spell's name. It may yet require some slight tweaks, such as using Concentration, but I have yet to implement it.
Lindwurm Conflagration (5e Spell) is a complete rewrite of a spell that was honestly just a mess when I found it. It is entirely different in execution to its original form, yet I believe it fulfills the relevant theme far more faithfully than before.
Usekh of the Dragon (5e Equipment) is of particular note, as it started life as an item with, in my opinion, a singularly terrible theme. Through discussion on the wiki's discord server, ideas were formulated on how to rework it in a manner that encapsulates a similar theme without stepping into the realm of adult content and all that comes with it. This could never have happened without the input of Glass, specifically, as their words in particular got the gears turning in my head.
3. Have you been in any conflicts over editing in the past or do you feel other users have caused you stress? How have you dealt with it and how will you deal with it in the future?
A: The vast majority of edit conflicts between myself and others have involved various different anonymous users reverting back to low-quality edits. In such cases, administrators have been informed by way of the discord server, and the pages have been soft-locked accordingly. The only editing conflict I recall having between myself and another user involved whether or not a given class should have proficiency with a specific weapon. The conflict was resolved by way of communication through the discord server, arbitrated by admins and moderators. I will endeavor to handle all future disputes in a similarly polite and professional manner.



  • He's been very active on the Discord, and I respect his authority in editing matters. He has my approval, and I wish him luck in this position. Glass (talk) 19:45, 14 December 2020 (MST)
  • Nuke is a very active wiki and Discord member, always on patrol for problematic or unbalanced edits. They are the commander in the war against the shadowbuffer army. They always seem to catch problems before anyone else and get on them before we even notice. Given admin perms, they could continue to do the same to a greater degree.

  • Exceedingly adept at finding and correcting the needless edits of unregistered users, then bringing in the cavalry when they don't get the hint. This user has my full confidence in their abilities to help regulate this website. Plus, the work they've done on both their own and others' homebrews is pretty good, too. IntellectMaster (talk) 19:57, 14 December 2020 (MST)
  • Discord frequenter here, and I just want to say that Nuke's doing great things, and that I'm totally in favor of this. Someone404 (talk) 20:19, 14 December 2020 (MST)
  • The contributions of Nuke The Earth as a very diligent recent changes patroller, who catches vandals and edits from users which are not constructive, stand out. I feel that Nuke The Earth reviews edits, and brings the edits into a constructive synthesis. Not only do the pages benefit from this diligence, but other users also engage in constructive edits to bring many pages into finished states. For these reasons, I support this nomination. As an admin, Nuke The Earth would benefit from the expanded toolbox and also the authority to let users know what edits are constructive and which edits are not. Nuke The Earth has also improved many pages which are all good examples of constructive editing, and made good improvements to many pages which needed them rather desperately. --Green Dragon (talk) 13:19, 15 December 2020 (MST)
