Forums: Index Administration Unbanning of Technology Wizard

Please do not use word bubbles or comment templates in this forum.
All users are allowed to partake in this discussion, whether or not they are administrators.
For those of you who were around at that time, you know the whole Technology Wizard situation. For those of you that don't know, consider yourself lucky, and I won't recap, since, if he does get unbanned, I'd like for him to have a fresh start.

Anyways, this is to ask for him to be unbanned. I feel that we have both grown from the past and we should all be able to able to work as a wiki and work as a team in expanding this wiki.

If Tech were to be unbanned, he would:

  1. Not be able to request rollback till September of this year, might be changed depending on the community discussion.
  2. He wouldn't be able to request administrative rights, again, might be changed depending on the community discussion.
  3. Chat mod would probably be debatable, if he were to get rollback, he would be able to get chat mod.
  4. There would be a contract in place so that him and I promise to remain civil.
  5. He is allowed in all community discussions and his past will not affect him.
  6. His past will not affect him, unless it's a major case.
  7. He will get a fresh start.

Please discuss. – zzi 06:06, February 12, 2012 (UTC)

Discussion

Going to remain neutral here. Although Tech's behavior has improved, he kept bugging us about getting unbanned. Unless he says something to me that changes my mind, then I'm staying neutral about him being unbanned. --Bullet Francisco 17:09, February 12, 2012 (UTC)

I know its probably not cool to say anything on the matter since I really don't know anything about the subject at hand. Im going to say something anyways. I don't care if this person gets unbanned as long as the user is civil and helps the growth of the wiki, and does not create problems for the rest of us. Slaying
That would work fine for a normal user who did something mildly bad, but Technology Wizard got out of hand, and bugged us about it for awhile. His behavior has improved however, and I give him full credit for that. It's mainly about whether or not we think his improvement is a reason to have him unbanned. --Bullet Francisco 21:31, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
Hmmm okay. fill me on his behavior and how much it has improved, if you don't mind. I would that I would have to know what he did in the first place as well. But if he has truly changed, I say we give him a second chance, and that if he wants to leave the past behind, he can. However depending on what I am told that he did I may not still agree with what I just said. --Slaying
As someone who's seen this drama unfold, his behaviour after it was completely unacceptable, I hope it was heat of the moment and that he's calmed down - and his behaviour across Wikia seems to reflect this, he seems helpful and settled now, and my hope is that he can continue on this track in the future. I'd agree with an unban -- RandomTime 23:56, February 17, 2012 (UTC)
Overall, I think Tech has greatly improved over what I've read/heard about him prior to his ban here. However, after his ban there was a little bit of "griping" about being unbanned. All in all, though, I think his attitude has improved and he seems to be trying to rebuild and change his ways, so perhaps it is time for an unban. — Wattz2000 00:36, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
After reading some, on this subject, I would say that he can be unbanned... but on a few conditions: The following are he probably shouldn't be allowed to apply for any rights for maybe 6 months, possibly even 8. He shouldn't be allowed to apply for admin again, because he apparently proved himself unworthy of admin status. Slaying
I was here when this all happened, so since the origanal ban was 6 months, I'd say that Tech should be unbbanned, but watched carefully for the first month, and not be able to get adminship again for 1 to 2 years or so.  The Epic Girl  Who's Nickname is Wolfy  01:43, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
Currently, four members of the community and a member of the overall Wikia community who had witnessed the drama have agreed on an unban. I personally think this is an okay number of people to call for an unbanning. If we could get one or two more opinions in favor of an unban, he'll be unbanned. – zzi 13:53, February 19, 2012 (UTC)
As long as his behavior has improved and no drama starts again - agreed on unbanning. He needs the fresh start. Bermuda • Triangle • 17:11,2/19/2012
As long as he behaves, I approve of the unblocking.  CrimsCrimsonnavy PokéBallnnavy   C  S  13:49, February 22, 2012 (UTC)

Conditions

The following section is to state the conditions that Technology Wizard and Jäzzi must follow to remain civil to each other.

Basically, what I can think of is just be civil. If there's an issue that arises between the two of us, we talk it out instead of going at it. We'd talk it out with a third party there to overview. We have to be lenient with the difference of who we are, if one of us goes to sleep (which I do very often) the discussion will be held till both parties are back, same goes for when someone leaves and is not able to be on the wik. The third party is basically to keep everything civil in the end and in the beginning of the discussion. – zzi 13:39, February 20, 2012 (UTC)

Tech's Wiki Conditions

The following section is to state the conditions that Technology Wizard must meet when requesting rights.

Basically, this section is to figure out the conditions. From the first section:

If Tech were to be unbanned, he would:

  1. Not be able to request rollback till September of this year, might be changed depending on the community discussion.
  2. He wouldn't be able to request administrative rights, again, might be changed depending on the community discussion.
  3. Chat mod would probably be debatable, if he were to get rollback, he would be able to get chat mod.
  4. There would be a contract in place so that him and I promise to remain civil.
  5. He is allowed in all community discussions and his past will not affect him.
  6. His past will not affect him, unless it's a major case.
  7. He will get a fresh start.

Any further conditions? – zzi 13:39, February 20, 2012 (UTC)

It doesn't look like there's much else to be added; not to mention adding more might seem like we're not giving him much of a "fresh start." So, yeah, these all sound like a fair trade, to me. — Wattz2000 13:49, February 20, 2012 (UTC)
Sounds good to me. I agree with Wattz if we add much more we won't exactly be giving him a fresh start. These conditions seem fair enough to me. Slaying
Strongly disagree on the first 2 (especially the 2nd), I think that the RFA process is a good process to discover if the community has trust in an editor. If he manages in the future to convince the 'crats that he is a good candidate for adminship with the community discussion, then he should be able to gain those rights. I'm not expecting this to be an easy ride for him in the RFA (where people are free to bring up past concerns if they wish), so I think that the RfA safeguard is enough of a community discussion for these requirements to be dropped. -- RandomTime 23:04, February 20, 2012 (UTC)
Oh yes, all due respect, but we are trying to give him a fresh start, without pulling his past back up. So I think that RFA isn't necessary, especially in this situation. Slaying
When does he get unbanned? Slayingmonstersisagame (talk) 00:24, February 22, 2012 (UTC)

Result

The community had decided that Technology Wizard will be unbanned. And as such, he is unbanned and will most likely come back. We will accept him with open arms.   Jazzi   Speak  12:13,2/23/2012    7,627
