KidProdigy (administrator)

— KidProdigy Talk Contributions Edit Count
Hello everyone, my name is KidProdigy, and I would like to volunteer as one of the administrators of the Pokémon Wiki. To show faith, I am a extremely active and loyal contributor to the Pokémon Wiki, I've added useful images, templates and am undoing vandalism and evenly reports to the administrators when it becomes a very big problem, but normally I am trying to solve the problem myself. I also have 3,000+ edits made around this wiki and over 40,000+ in total. I know how to use administrator rights properly as that I am a administrator at countless wiki's as in deleting, blocking but most important helping other contributors. But also loose from that I want to make this wiki much better than expected. This wiki loses their editors and is a popular attraction for vandalisms. I don't want to see the wiki fall apart, that's why I am working very hard to make the Pokémon Wiki looks new and original and want this wiki to achieve their goal to become popular like Bulbapedia or any other popular Pokémon website evenly if it is going to take a lot of patience to achieve that goal. I hope you all can trust me with administrator rights after my reason why I want to become a administrator. Thank you all for your time. Regards, KidProdigy (Local UserpageLocal Talk) 08:12, March 3, 2013 (UTC)

Neutral Neutral: For now, I am going to ride the fence. No offence to anyone, What I'm thinking is that we wait a bit longer, about 2-4 weeks, and wait... Wait for what. I know not. but as of now, I feel that we put this off for a while, because at the moment, we only need three admins. we don't have the need for anymore than that.   Slayingthehalcyon   (Talk)  21:29,3/3/2013    4,183  


Oppose Oppose: While I was going to support, I rechecked your warnings to users. I'm opposing because you seem to be to excited about the warning. That's the only good term I have. But what I mean is you're quite: "If you continue to do this, I'm going to contact an admin! DO NOT take content from Bulbapedia!" Or an exactly quote being: "STOP TAKING EXACT THE SAME CONTENTS FROM BULBAPEDIA!!" You're a really good editor, you're just not good with community yet. – EnemyPeacemaker 14:32, March 3, 2013 (UTC)


Comment Comment: If I can explain the situation, If you check other users that I warn it is regular, but Lucasmoura is the person that I am warning constantly also after that I am undoing his edits. Sorry that it comes rude to you but you must better check what kind of warnings I gave to him in the first place. Regards, KidProdigy (Local UserpageLocal Talk) 14:38, March 3, 2013 (UTC)
Comment Comment: It doesn't matter the amount of times you have to warn someone, you have to remain calm when warning users. – EnemyPeacemaker 14:41, March 3, 2013 (UTC)
Comment Comment: I have my doubts about having 3 admins. This is one of bigger wikis, with a lot of visitors. Each day we face vandals, and having 3 admins is just not enough to keep track of them all. Energy X 22:34, March 3, 2013 (UTC)
Comment Comment: Need I remind you, that we have about 5-10 active users, and its not that hard to keep up with all the editing.   Slayingthehalcyon   (Talk)  22:36,3/3/2013    4,183  
Comment Comment: Maybe so, but what happenes if vandal makes a page with an obvious vandalism? Only admins can delete that, and if not checked, the page stays for a some time (example here). And not to mention the fact that if the vandals continue to harass the site, with nobody able to block them. Posting a message on talk page seems good, but who can promise that the admin is logged in at that time and will block the vandal(s)? The vandals need to be dealt swiftly and quickly, so the conclusion is to have more active admins. Energy X 22:47, March 3, 2013 (UTC)
Comment Comment: We can't have an admin lacking in community skills who doesn't handle warnings calmly. – EnemyPeacemaker 01:17, March 4, 2013 (UTC)
Comment Comment: Energy: You seem to have the problem, of not warning the anon's that what they are doing is wrong. And so asking me to ban them is not cool, Anons need at least a two time warning before they are eligible to be banned.   Slayingthehalcyon   (Talk)  21:13,3/4/2013    4,183  
Comment Comment: That depends on the severity of what the user, not just an anonymous user, but what the user has done. And I personally go by three warnings, and they should be on the talk page. But I don't know why we're discussing Energy X's warning styles when it's not an RfA for him? – EnemyPeacemaker 21:18, March 4, 2013 (UTC)
Comment Comment: It needed to be addressed, and energy the conclusion is not to have more admins, the conclusion is to have users that are willing to warn and tell an admin about vandalism and whatnot.   Slayingthehalcyon   (Talk)  21:20,3/4/2013    4,183  
Comment Comment: I see no discussion when dealing with vandals. Their goal is to harass and troll us. The warning could only be to a user who is a veteran at editing, but even then he/she'd have a good reason for removing content. To warn a vandal not to vandalise is something like saying a bank robber shouldn't rob a bank. Energy X 21:48, March 4, 2013 (UTC)
Comment Comment: This really isn't the place to discuss how to deal out warnings, it's to discuss KidProdigy's request for rights. – EnemyPeacemaker 21:54, March 4, 2013 (UTC)
