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.

Neutral 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.

Comment 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)

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)

Comment 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. 003 - 006 - 009 17:21, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
Comment 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 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)

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.

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.

Oppose 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 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. 003 - 006 - 009 17:08, June 27, 2013 (UTC)
