# Changes: Pokémon Wiki:Requests for User Rights/Archive 6

Back to page

This request for user rights was declined.

After a month of using roll back tools, I have to say a lot of vandalism has been reverted. I am writing this request because it is out of my power to delete some non-sense pages. I fear that the vandals that are here plan more and more things. I am asking the community to give me those tools for dealing with vandals and to do some other things, like renaming this.

Support:

#### Neutral Edit

Neutral: I have a few reasons as to why I'm voting neutral your request. You do a great job in tagging unneeded pages for deletion, but when you tag pages for deletion you don't normally give a reason as to why it should be deleted. Yes, the reason it normally needs to be deleted is because 9 out of 10 times it is obvious spam or vandalism. It's common practice to remove the content of the page when marking a page for deletion, it doesn't need to be done, but it's recommended since the content can be vulgar and/or explicit content that nobody really needs to read. It's in italics because it's not something that is influencing my vote, just a recommendation for the future. I don't really see much interaction between you and the community, granted, there isn't much opportunity to do so since there aren't many people consistently editing and I personally am trying to turn things around on the wiki, but I have school and am incredibly lazy. So those opportunities that I have in mind for community interactions aren't in existence yet. I really don't want to get on your case about the messages you do send because on your userpage you have the "User en-3" userbox, which, in most cases, means that English is not your native language. Your warning-like messages, as seen here aren't that descriptive and in some cases can be worded better. Edit summaries such as this one here can be viewed as "feeding the trolls", my personal view on removing spam-like edits from pages is to just not leave an edit summary. Revert and ignore is my motto. The following talk page messages: 1, 2, 3, and 4, as well as 5, 6, 7, and 8 can all be viewed as spam-like. I understand that you want to bring more users to edit here, and in the case of your request you want it to be noticed and voted upon, but messaging multiple people for those cases is viewed as spam-like and shouldn't really be done. I really do not like voting neutral on requests, since neutrals are useless and I feel you might as well not vote if voting neutral, but I do not want to oppose because I do have hope in you becoming an administrator in the future, and I'm not ready to support you just yet.

#### Oppose Edit

Comment: I see. The messages on talk pages are just to have some encouragement and it'd be better to have the users back editing, well, at least those that are still active on Wikia. Sadly, none of them have returned. About other things, I promise I'll improve better. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but after some time. Energy X 20:34, May 11, 2013 (UTC)

### KidProdigy (rollback-demotion) Edit

This request for user rights was approved.

Hello everyone, I would like to retreat as a rollback around Pokémon Wiki. I'm actually tired of helping out this wiki too much. A lot of pages are stub, informations are in-completed (some were my fault, sorry), incorrect images and some else. Sorry, but also, lately I wasn't evenly active anymore due that I was doing something. Hopefully it will be revealed some time in the future over the net. It was fine working with all of you, thank you. KidProdigy (Local UserpageLocal Talk) 15:33, June 26, 2013 (UTC)

#### Oppose Edit

Oppose:

Comment: Sorry to hear that. If it is some work that you had to done, it should take some time, no? But the arguments you gave, the stubs/incomplete articles, that should actually encourage you to change it. Besides, there is other work that can be done, e.g. image categorization, grammar cleanup... But if the work you mentioned keeps you inactive, I understand. - - 17:21, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
Comment: I'm going to tell you straight forward that requesting demotion is one thing that's risky. People will want you to stay so they'll oppose the request. Most cases it's for requesting the demotion of someone else, not of the person with the rights. If you want to go, it's your choice, I'm not going to hold you back as we all have things that take priority. If you truly want to, think it over for a week and then message me and, if you still want to retire, I'll remove your rights. – Jazzi (talk) 17:52, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
Comment: Sigh, Energy X, I have no encouragement in changing the pages or to do other work as well, this wiki makes me only somber. And Jazzi, I do not need no week the time to think about it, just remove it, thanks. KidProdigy (Local UserpageLocal Talk) 22:34, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
Comment: Your wish is my command. – Jazzi (talk) 15:00, June 27, 2013 (UTC)

I don't normally nominate people, because I feel that they should nominate themselves if they want to receive the rights they are requesting. Energy X has shown great commitment to this wiki and helps out in every way he can. He tags many pages for deletion, I can't link the pages that he's tagged, since they're in his deleted contributions, but he is very good at what he does. You can see that the majority, if not all, of his talk page messages (which I had a link for but it broke the template) are alerting the admins to vandals and pages that require deletion. I'm ending school soon, but I have a somewhat summer job, so I won't be around much, I can't speak for Slaying and Rainbow Shifter, but it's always good to have admins in different timezones. Basically, the work that Energy X does is deserving of administrator rights.

Support: Per nomination – Jazzi (talk) 21:36, June 11, 2013 (UTC) Support: I need somebody else! I need to check every page I see in Wiki Activity as well as deleting 14+ candidates for deletion every time I log on. And I really cannot think of somebody more active than Energy to fulfil this role. 16:55, June 15, 2013 (UTC) Support: He did seems to did a good job on it, I think he can deserve an admin rights for this wiki.-- King Marth 64 (talkother wikisblogs) 19:39, June 15, 2013 (UTC) Support: I agree.

Neutral:

#### Oppose Edit

Oppose: I fear that you won't be able to determine proper block lengths. On my talk page you suggest people get "long blocks" when they don't deserve a long block as they have not many offenses. I know I nominated you, but I have to go with my gut feeling. – Jazzi (talk) 15:07, June 27, 2013 (UTC)

Comment: Give me a few days and you'll get the rights. – Jazzi (talk) 17:52, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
Comment: About the blocks; some of the anonymous users that vandalised pages have done it in a recognizable way that you can compare some of their older accounts. Besides, with the "Wiki lock" that will prevent the anonymous users from editing, I can ban logged users by the pattern I use from the other wikis: first is three days, then the block rises to a week, then two weeks, then a month etc., depending if the user violated the rules. - - 17:08, June 27, 2013 (UTC)

### King Marth 64 (rollback) Edit

This request for user rights was declined.

I will like to become as one of the rollback users for the Pokemon Wiki, I started as a user as DigiPen92 (my previous user name) in three years ago for the Black and White section as a Minor User and then, came back as a full time editor that knows how to revert edits, knows how to place the Deletion templates in pages that are vandalism/spam/unneeded, created about 10 pages in the wiki, I kinda know and do more on the game sections than the anime since I played the main game series alot (I haven't seen much on the anime alot), and I have about 400 main space edits in this wiki right now, so I will do helping out reverting alot of vandalism and support on the wiki. -- King Marth 64 (talkother wikisblogs) 00:33, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

#### Support Edit

Support: Agreed. He displayed a lot of work in so little time, as most of it are reverting back what vandals messed up. - - 09:31, June 25, 2013 (UTC) Support: Fourteen obvious vandalism reverts in the past fourteen days. I think that you now have more experience at reverting than before so I am changing to support. 18:02, July 4, 2013 (UTC).

#### Neutral Edit

Neutral: Give me some time to think it over. – Jazzi (talk) 17:52, June 26, 2013 (UTC)

After some time I learned a lot from this Wiki; dealing with vandals, removing bad trivia and advising other members how they can improve their editing. If you are not familiar, since December 3, 2012, I added about 380 episode plots (first episode was this one) and added a lot of images (wish I knew exactly how many) and I still continue to do so, along with tagging unused images for deletion and making ideas to get more viewers. As I have done this, I know people trust me to do the right thing. Trust is what I have given to some of users here and now I ask for people to trust me to promote me as an admin and expand my work, along with helping our administrators what needs to be done.

### King Marth 64 (rollback) Edit

This request for user rights was declined.

—
Reason below As Energy X has left the Rollback Section, and has now been added to the Admin group, I think that it is time to add another user to the RB position, right now, I see that Marth has applied for RB atleast once, and I do believe that upon getting RB, that his edits and skill in editing will increase, as well as his ability to decide what spam is.

#### Support Edit

Support:I support this as I nomm'ed Marth. Support:We can trust Marth with the rights and his edits as of late have been very good and productive. RainbowShifter 18:36, October 26, 2013 (UTC) Support:I agree. People like him are a welcome addition to the patroller team. 19:02, November 3, 2013 (UTC)

Neutral:

#### Oppose Edit

Oppose: I was going to neutral, but voting neutral doesn't really provide anything. But I'm opposing because users are promoted to rollback when their knowledge of what spam is is solid. His ability should not increase, it should improve. Great user, yes. And I don't doubt his skill. I haven't been around much as of late to truly know the extent of his knowledge, but I'll be checking through his contributions. Another thing that is preventing me from supporting is the nomination statement. And what I mean by that is the part about telling what his ability of seeing spam. However, I am basing this on things from before I left, so I will be going through his contributions to see things now. ∂εsσℓαтευтσρια (тαℓк) 20:11, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

Comment: Also an edit to remind people to vote because currently he has two supports due to the oppose which means he cannot be promoted. So if you feel he should be promoted speak now. ∂εsσℓαтευтσρια (тαℓк) 03:51, November 4, 2013 (UTC)

Hey y'all. Hope you're doing alright. I'm requesting rollback rights because I feel like I would make very good use of them and I'm eventually going to request admin rights (food for thought). I've been on this wiki for 2 years now and while I haven't been consistent in my editing, I assure you I will use my rights for good and for the better of this wiki. If you need credibility, I am an admin/bureau on three different wikis, a Wikia Star and have never abused my powers intentionally or for my own gain. You can also ask other users I have talked to on this wiki. I hope you'll consider me in the ranks! 06:08, November 25, 2013 (UTC)

#### SupportEdit

Support: I approve of this promotion. --OmegaRasengan (talk) 19:29, November 25, 2013 (UTC)

Support: Agreed. He has shown to be reliable (and not only of his Wikia Star status). 12:13, December 10, 2013 (UTC) Support: Has helped a lot with some vandalism cases. RainbowShifter 17:09, December 7, 2013 (UTC) Support: He's pretty good handling bunch of other stuff. -- King Marth 64 (talkother wikisblogs) 17:13, December 10, 2013 (UTC) Support: Has done a huge amount of work, especially in regards to simplifying the templates and formatting on individual Pokemon pages. --Shockstorm (talk) 06:10, December 16, 2013 (UTC)

#### OpposeEdit

Comment:I will accept this in a few more days, see if it gets anymore input. RainbowShifter 18:09, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

### Adrián Perry GZ (user) Edit

This request for user rights was declined.

—
I want to be a patrol for the following reasons. One, there are few admins on this Wiki, and as far as I'm concerned, only one is constantly active. Several users around the Wiki, constantly create new pages that don't have anything to do with the ones that we should have, most of them are personal opinions or fanmade histories, etc. The other part are speculations for upcoming Pokémon stuff, such as the anime. I saw when the pages like "Ash's Skiddo", "Serena's Espurr", "Serena's Pancham", "Jessie's Skrelp" or the like were out there. I kind of thought, "alright", but soon realized that that was speculation, because of upcoming episodes screenshots. The episode where "Serena was going to catch a Pancham" was aired, and then, Serena didn't catch a Pancham. Just Jessie caught a Pumpkaboo, but, was there a page for "Jessie's Pumpkaboo"? No. All those pages are deleted now, and those pages shall not exist until the episode where that happens is aired in Japan. Also, many users have upload fanmade photos and pics for anything, such as Ash and Serena love shipper, or "new Pokémon that are hidden within the videogames", etc. If that's true, we will have that until it is oficially confirmed by Game Freak. I would like to take care of all that, because a Wiki is an Internet site where we can find information about what we like, in this case, Pokémon, and the information this Wiki has is not that good in all pages, that's why another thing I will do (whether I become patrol or not) is reconstruct many pages, like the places in the Kalos region and moves, and many other things. So, that's why I would like to become a rollback.

#### Support Edit

Support: He gets my vote for his hard work. We could use more people like him. 23:06, January 20, 2014 (UTC) Support: Seems to be an active, friendly, and trusted user.   09:51, December 27, 2013 (UTC)

Neutral:

#### Oppose Edit

Oppose: I am sure you are a good editor and all but all the reasons you stated above are not reasons for you to be a rollback. Also in your most recent 500 edits (which I did skim read through) you have not undone one edit which is what the rollback tool is for. I was going to put this under neutral but I can't really find any good points which match up the negatives, other than the fact you seem dedicated and a good editor which is great, but without the strong history of vandalism reverting I don't feel the rollback tool would have much use with you. RainbowShifter 23:27, December 27, 2013 (UTC)
Oppose:I agree with Rainbow cause A Rollback is a user that reverts vandalism,but in that case you havent reverted edits that much.Instead you could have applied for admin after doing more edits and been more active thanks.BlazeFire.
Oppose:To keep the vote from a stand still, I'm afraid that I'm going to have to say that you need to show me more effort in reverting information to its correct form.

#### Oppose Edit

Oppose: I don't have anything against her or Kyurem147, but I do think that there are other users that can use the rollback tools more than they do. Yes, they have been very valuable (rarely missing a day or two of editing here), but they only report vandals, but do not revert the vandal edits... much. 13:56, March 1, 2014 (UTC)

### King Marth 64 (rollback) Edit

This request for user rights was approved.

I've seen many users on this Wiki and I can say King Marth 64 is one of the users that should be promoted to rollback. He rarely does mistakes and adds quite a lot of info. This Wiki needs more people like him to grow, so I vouch for him to be promoted to a rollback. As you know, I was trusted to be given administrator tools to be an admin, so I ask for the trust to be given to King Marth 64 to be given rollback tools.

#### Neutral Edit

Neutral: I can't say yes, but I can't say no, either. I think this Wiki needs more rollbacks and admins, so I would kind of support King Marth 64, I would if I have seen what he has done. I honestly haven't seen what he does in general here inside the Wiki, but if already three people voted for him, it means he is indeed good. Though there is something I was reading on his userpage, it is that he is semi active. But, again, I can't say yes or no. I just hope that if he gets the rollback tools, he uses them correctly. $Adrian$ $Perry GZ$ 04:26, May 30, 2014 (UTC)

Shockstorm is a great user. I have seen people with quality edits, but they are not very active. Shockstorm, however, edits every day; whether fixing redirects or modifying templates and images. I haven't to see a bad edit from him, and I hope it stays that way.
