Jack Phoenix (Talk - Contribs - Block/rights logs - Logs) - (4,021 edits, 562 mainspace)

For almost two years I've been a system administrator for the Brickimedia wikis (because saying "Brickipedia + GBC + Meta that really should be closed by now but isn't" sounds just awkward), but my wiki experience goes well beyond that. I made my first edit on a wiki — pretty sure it was the English Wikipedia — over a decade (!) ago and for the past eight years I've been writing MediaWiki extensions and skins, which are used on various MediaWiki wikis out there. GlobalUserPage, the extension which allows you to have a single user page on a wiki farm, was originally written by me for ShoutWiki, but it's now used on all Wikimedia Foundation wikis!

On Brickimedia I've contributed to the Refreshed skin, which is our current default skin, as well as fixed various software bugs ranging from simple typos to logic errors in actual program code. But I've also written a few reviews (and hope to do more of those in the future!), participated in policy discussions and most recently written a detailed write-up about the Fabuland theme. In addition to all that, I've also moved badly named files, deleted unused low-resolution files and blocked vandals and spambots — all of which require admin tools, to which I've had access as a sysadmin.

Questions, comments, concerns, anything? Feel free to ask in the comments section below! --Jack Phoenix (talk) 03:45, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Jack, you don't have enough mainspace edits to run for admin. Normally, I'd remove this outright but I don't think you'll have any trouble making 30 more mainspace edits. LCF (talk!) 07:17, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

SamanthaNguyen (Talk - Contribs - Block/rights logs - Logs) - (1,717 edits, 944 mainspace)

My experience with wikis has been since February 19, 2012 which started out on the My LEGO Network Wiki(a), which is about 5 years (4 years and 9 months to be more exact). I've travelled across many smaller wikias during that time to learn about wiki markup, after getting interested from looking at the source code of pages. Over this time I have talked with other wiki members and started gaining insight of how a community works, and learning that collaboration is one of the most important keys. My main self-improvement started when I discovered LEGO CUUSOO Wiki (which is now LEGO Ideas Wiki) and although it is in the process of being closed and it no longer has much of a use in current times, it's helped me learn a lot, and one of the reasons how I came about here today. This was the first time where I was working on a wiki with over half a thousand articles, and have a decent amount of users to talk with and edit with. Discussions would happen, and we all learned how maintenance is truly important, along with communicating ideas (no pun intended!) of how bring a wiki a step forward. Although I have gained a lot of technical experience, I believe that I've also developed wiki experience along the way and would be able to assist as a role of an administrator and not just a system administrator at Brickipedia.

I'm an active editor; Currently I'm a patroller (I have been since 2013), and in the past I was a QCG member as well as a chat moderator.

  • You were banned just a couple of months ago. Berrybrick (talk) 21:03, 14 August 2016 (UTC)
    • The block was a mistake, one I should have sorted it out immediately. However, I didn't think it'd do me any good since George was almost certain it was Knight and I messing around (he'd already voluntarily left the Skype group by then, essentially erasing the Skype room logs from his computer; without them, it would be somewhat hard to prove I didn't do anything, the way I saw it). AjraddatzFan2006, the vandal in question, was actually a sockpuppet of the user Klintrin, not myself or Knight. I simply logged into chat (on my account, Edward Nigma) to see what was going on. Klintrin was added to the Brickimedia Skype Group by another user, and then Klintrin proceeded to kick everyone out of the group except for me, Knight, himself, George, and the user that added him. When it comes down to it, Nova made it clear that not even he was sure who was vandalising and trolling, as seen on the block warning on my talk page. There wasn't anything I could do to stop Klint from coming onto Brickipedia and messing with chat/vandalise (I wasn't aware of any vandalism until the next day). Ultimately there was no basis to my block and the chatban, only assumptions. It was an honest mistake on behalf of the administrators on here. LCF (talk!) 21:41, 14 August 2016 (UTC)
      • Okay, I guess. I know I did an investigation, but I don't remember exactly what came out of it...I should probably record these things somewhere. You'd probably be a fine sysop, but because of these circumstances I don't think I can support. So, neutral, I guess. Berrybrick (talk) 21:57, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
  • So...why now? I have no doubt you'd be good at it, but I'm curious as to why now seemed like the best time, and why do you now use LCF again? :P CJC95 (talk) 22:29, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
    • I chose to run now because Sam brought up that I've never run for administrator on here, despite having been on the site for 4+ years, and having successfully become a CM, patroller, etc. in the past. That and the fact that there's a notable lack of administrators on after 3:00 UTC. In regards to my signature, I've actually been using this "LCF" signature for the past three years. LCF (talk!) 22:25, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
      • Why use LCF if you renamed to Edward Nigma though :P CJC95 (talk) 23:02, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
        • I think the signature is very simple, so I've had no need to update it since 2013. I still go by "LCF" or "LCF119" on several other sites as well, so the name certainly hasn't gone away entirely. :P LCF (talk!) 23:11, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

LegoFan4000 -Global Sysop[edit]

The following section is preserved as an archive. Please do not modify it. The result was Failed. Doesn't belong here anyway.

(Putting this here because every time I make a request on Meta, it gets ignored.) I have been here for nearly 5 months and I am an admin here and on meta and I would like to be a global sysop so that I can take care of things like spam or things that have to be applied on all wikis such as mediawiki messages.

  1. Maybe I am thinking about this the wrong way, but if we are closing Meta, Customs, and Ideas (they aren't even on the drop-down menu now) what's the point? I'm honestly not sure why global sysop was ever a thing, either, since it seems to bypass local elections which sounds sketchy to me. If you want to be a global sysop, ask for admin at GBC and see what happens. Berrybrick (talk) 21:08, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
    The problem is that there are no active people there. LegoFan4000 talk 21:11, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
    Is there anyway you can contact them? I'm sure Meiko can if not you. And even if they have fall off the face of the Internet, I'm still not comfortable voting to give someone adminship at a domain I'm not invested in. I don't know what they want. Berrybrick (talk) 21:46, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
  2. Opposing for the following reasons:
    • Most of your edits are category related, which can often be removing categories simply because they don't exist. If they don't exist, they don't have to be deleted, you can just create the category.
    • Whenever you revert an edit, there is usually no reason in the edit summary, and even if you fill it out, it can be sarcastic and not helpful. For example from a few days ago, you simply put "how about this" as an edit summary, that is no reason to undo someone else's edit.
    • You delete many things without reason. Sometimes honestly I give up bringing this up because many times I have brought up something on your talk page and you don't respond, similar to many other people's messages when they bring up soemthing on yours. This is extremely frustrating, and it only takes a few minutes or so to at least type something or acknowledge it, yet that hasn't been done (except one time when I specifically asked and you only said "Ok" and then responded to half of my message.)
    • As berry said, there is no point since the wikis are in the process of being closed (you know where the Phabricator task is). GBC doesn't need any administrating as they can function quite well by themselves.
    • They are active, yet their activity is mostly outside wiki, they are still active however. We have system administrators who can revert vandalism and spam if and when needed.
    SamanthaNguyen (talk) 21:12, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
    Ok LegoFan4000 talk 21:29, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
  3. I wasn't aware global sysop was a right we used. Even if we did, its not needed anymore, with Customs/Ideas/Stories closing. Electing you this would effectively be making you an admin at GBC, and that would be it. GBC is very different from this community, and I'd feel uncomfortable electing an admin for them. CJC95 (talk) 21:52, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
  4. Per CJC, and Bricki isn't the place to put a global request. NovaHawk 23:32, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Neutral. The real thing holding me back from a support is that I've seen a lot of unexplained reversions of good-faith edits in the past (the most recent being less than 24 hours ago). Yes the edits might need to be reverted, but good-faith edits like this need at the very least a short explanation in the edit summary, or in some cases a message on the user's talk page. This types of reversions shouldn't happen in general, but definitely shouldn't be coming from an admin. Don't get me wrong though, you're doing great and I'm very thankful for the work you've put into this place :) NovaHawk 11:15, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

ToaMeiko - functionary[edit]

ToaMeiko (Talk - Contribs - Block/rights logs - Logs) - (98 edits, 6,075 mainspace)

I am requesting functionary rights because I have been active in preventing abuse on the wiki, most notably removing spam and blocking spam bots. Right now I hold global system administrator rights across Brickimedia which has given me all the same tools and access as functionary rights would, however I'd like to have the functionary flag anyways as CheckUsering spambots is technically not in the system administrator scope or responsibilities. Being a local functionary will assure that I'm not using my system administrator rights for more than they're intended for, and will also add some additional accountability and responsibility when using those tools, as I will be a local rights holder as opposed to a global rights holder.

Brikkyy13 - Administrator[edit]

Brikkyy13 (Talk - Contribs - Block/rights logs - Logs) - (4,755 edits, 2,871 mainspace)

I've been a part of the wiki for just over 2 years now, and have only recently started getting rights. I've been writing good quality news articles for us and have recently been editing articles with important information such as LEGO.com descriptions (among regular edits). I've been editing many articles to a good standard to be nominated for February's BOTM. I've also been identifying many spambots, and it would be a lot easier to be able to delete them myself than having to ask someone else to do so. I do have enough mainspace edits when combined with these edits (though I myself am not too sure how the user page count got so high :/), so I am qualified. After 2 years with the wiki I know how everything works and how we work as a community, so I do believe that I have the qualities that would make me a good administrator. I also believe that if I was granted administrator rights I'd be able to increase my abilities on the wiki with the extra tools that I would be given. Being granted administrator would only increase my ability to help and contribute to the wiki. BrikkyyTalk 04:31, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Support[edit]

  1. I was surprised to see that your number of mainspace edits wasn't as high as I expected (I would have assumed around 2000 or something). That's not a problem, because as a user who contributes so constructively and regularly as you is proof that quality exists over quantity. Brikkyy is a positive member of the community who engages in all areas of the site and is attentive to current discussions and topics of interest going on in the community. Brikkyy is responsible and knowledgeable about the site and its various policies and its standards. I see him being a valuable asset to Brickipedia's team of administrators as he already shines as a valuable asset to the community as a whole. --ToaMeiko (talk) 04:38, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

  3. At this point, having an admin wiki will be redundant. :P Seriously, though, Brikkyy is a dedicated user, and I have viewed some situations in which he could have made good use of the rights. I don't have a concern about maturity at this point; I don't think he's had a single incident on Brickimedia. So.. yeah, can't see a reason why not to support.

      • We just lowered the restriction to 500 for a reason. When I put my request for administrator up I had just barely met the requirement (at the time 1000 total edits), and not nearly all of those would have been mainspace.
