D&D Wiki talk:Requests for Adminship/Great Wyrm Black Dragon
From D&D Wiki
As the vandal in question, Black Dragon himself has reverted the changes I made to his page to it's current version, and added onto it. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs) . Please sign your posts.
- I added this to the talk page, as it seems a more appropriate place. Since you're clearly looking at my edits, let me just suggest that you take a similar course to mine, and instead of vandalizing, post a comment at the bottom of the voting page. The comments section is free for unregistered users to use, so go ahead and post there if you have something to say. Just please keep it clean. --Daniel Draco 19:31, 7 December 2007 (MST)
- But that's no fun. :| Besides, I got to see some legendary vandal busting action, worthy of another Barnstar or so. I already voiced my complaints against this joke of a human as everyone is probably aware, and drew quite a bit of attention to his profile, which is far more offensive than me, on the premise that he's serious and I'm just a troll with fast internet and a slippery connection. If my opinion's worth anything, don't let him on the team. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk • contribs) 19:40, 7 December 2007 (MST). Please sign your posts.
- Well, then create an account and become a registered wiki user, then you can cast your vote officially, which might actually work towards him not becoming an admin, if that's what you want. --Daniel Draco 19:44, 7 December 2007 (MST)
- Looks like others have caught the smell and have also picked up on this, with the inclusion of a rather condemning piece of evidence against him. Registering at this point would be moot, since anyone that actually supports him will obviously be out of their minds. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs) 06:05, 10 December 2007 (MST).

You claim to have been part of wikipedia administration. Can you verify this in any way?--Mander 10:49, 8 December 2007 (MST)
- For that matter, what corruption drove you from wikipedia? --Daniel Draco 10:51, 8 December 2007 (MST)
- The corruption that obviously prevents him from spreading his disgusting views. Alternately, he's probably 14 and thinks being anti-establishment is the cool thing to do and any wiki that's not wikipedia is all about fighting the system. I just wish my own personal revisions of his user page would be kept. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) 06:05, 10 December 2007 (MDT).

- Actually, although this does not really pertain to the subject, I feel that Wikipedia does have a lot of corruption. Recently it was found out that the U.S. government has been editing articles that pertain to them and things they are doing, that violates Wikipedia CoD, and they are not doing anything about it. A perfect example—read about "Loose Change" and you will see that that article obviously does not follow WP:NPOV. I don't know, I feel that on controversial issues they are already down the drain, and I hope the rest does not follow. Don't get me wrong, I love the the idea behind Wikipedia and Wikipedia itself but it is scary to hear about what is happening to them. --Green Dragon 16:51, 10 December 2007 (MST)
We ended this nomination early, but in retrospect that may have been a bad idea. The reason it was ended early was because nobody liked this guy, but isn't that what the votes are for? As much as I'd have hated to see this guy as an admin, I also don't like the idea of not giving someone an equal window of time because we don't like them. In the future, we probably should not end nominations early, and instead let the votes against them make their nomination fail. --Daniel Draco 14:32, 1 December 2008 (MST)

- Although personally I do not think it mattered too much one way or the other. --Green Dragon 09:57, 4 March 2009 (MST)
