This is the page where users can request Administrator and Rollback rights and vote on other users who are requesting rights. Please read the following regulations and instructions completely before voting or placing a request.

In the event that an Administrator or Rollback is being unruly or breaking the rules, a request for their demotion may be placed below in the Requests for demotion header. The same voting rules apply for this as well. The vote totals required for their demotion remain the same as those for promotions as well.

When you add a comment or a vote, please do not use word bubbles, as the numbering will get messed up. If word bubbles are used, it will have the template coding removed to regular coding and the unsigned template will be used in place of a signature.

Lordranged7 (Administrator)

I have been thinking about this for a while and I decided to give it a shot. I have become a rollback a few months ago and the support was great. Now, I would like to become an admin. I am also very active and I revert any bad edits whenever I see them and tag images, that are copied from Bulbapedia, for deletion especially the manga images. I would like to delete them by myself and other pages that are tagged for deletion. I would like to rename the images with bad naming to good names and to block/warn any user that are editing against the rules. I am an admin on two other wikias, so I do have admin experiences. Looking at this, few of the admins are active but the admin that is active editing wise is Energy X and I would like to support him and also the other admins of course.


Support Support: Aye, I might've suggested you to take the request these days, especially with Nectaria's mysterious disappearance. Energy X 14:19, April 12, 2015 (UTC)

Support Support: We could definitely use more admins, and Lordranged has done a great job. I think she'll put admin tools to good use. --Shockstorm (talk) 21:54, April 12, 2015 (UTC)

Requests for Demotion

Ellis99 (rollback)

I have nothing against this user. In fact, I saw him as a good user and couldn't understand the reason of his block at first, but now I do. I think he doesn't deserve rollback rights. I'd suppose that when an user is blocked, his/hers user rights are removed, but I really don't know. If he still is categorized as a rollback user, I suggest he's removed and taken those rights. It doesn't look good to have a rollback blocked, it's better not to be rollback. If he someday returns to editing properly, and wants to be rollback again, he ought to win his rights once again.


Support Support: O

Support Support: Agreed, no reason for users whose behavior warrants repeated blocks to have tools here. --Shockstorm (talk) 05:03, March 25, 2015 (UTC)

Support Support: Has shown poor judgement on numerous occasions. Jazzcookie (talk) 14:40, March 27, 2015 (UTC)

Support Support:I agree on what Adrian and the rest have said. He has been blocked many times while having rollback rights, it doesn't look really good.--Lordranged7 (talk) 15:25, April 11, 2015 (UTC)

Support Support: I have thought of this for some time and must say that he should be demoted, due to this behavior he has done, even if he was asked for several times to stop it. However, he can reapply again for the request IF he shows enough interest and contributions to this Wiki, as well as proof to show he learned what we wanted to tell him.
