I had the craziest idea. How about once a month we award the honor of admin for a day to a user? -- Kip > Talk Works Puzzle Potato Dry Brush CUN Icons-flag-us

Against When pigs fly. (Yeah, I don't think It's a goood idea. someone can get op for a day and abuse their powers. Wait, sin't that whatbeing a sysop is all abo- *BANNINATED*) --Lt. High Gen. Grue The Few The Proud, The Marines 17:58, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
AgainstHere, as in life in general, we need to restrict the power of the few. --Pieface 18:07, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Okay, nevermine. It was a stupid idea. <: ( -- Kip > Talk Works Puzzle Potato Dry Brush CUN Icons-flag-us

Actually, it could be a good idea if we infinnibanned anybody who abused their power. :p kidding. But it really could have been a good idea. --Lt. High Gen. Grue The Few The Proud, The Marines 18:11, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
No! It's a terrible idea! It should never have been conceived! --General Insineratehymn 18:15, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
"It should have never been conceived". Isn't that what your father said to your mother when you were born? J/k. ; ) -- Kip > Talk Works Puzzle Potato Dry Brush CUN Icons-flag-us
You should've just left out the j/k, Kip. Insin, this is what Famine was talking about when he said "hostile sense of humor."-Sir Ljlego, GUN VFH FIYC WotM SG WHotM PWotM AotM EGAEDM ANotM + (Talk) 19:11, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Hey, great idea! The admin-for-a-day could be designated to respond to all complaints about admins! Or he could be assigned to count how many articles are about porn when the article's title subject has nothing to do with sex! Or he could be kept busy removing all references to Chuck Norris! There's a lot to keep an admin-for-a-day busy. Just don't let him touch the ban-hammer, or there is bound to be blood on the servers sooner or later. ----OEJ 19:28, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

I think I'd make a great admin-for-a-day. Mwhahahahahaha! --Dexter111344 21:00, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
As an admin I promise to huff....yes, huff, and huff until there is nothing left to huff then I will ban everyone, and the site will be mine!! MWAHAHAHAHA!! *Slaps self in the face, regains composure* Actually, this could be an OK idea, but a day is too long. Maybe a couple of hours? And I don't think it's the banhammer that would be the problem, personally. I think people would hit random page a few dozen times and huff everything that wasn't totally hysterical. This would piss off a bunch of n00bs, who would complain to the admin-for-a-day, who'd say "Sorry, not an admin anymore, go ask someone else". Then, all of these noobs would rush out to bother all the other real admins, causing them to stop doing their jobs at VFD, QVFD, and BP. Oh, and the user made an admin would have to be a real user, not under, say, a month. P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 06:03, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

I think the idea has some merit in the sense that it conveys good intentions and a sense of sharing the burden of responsibility / power. However, as a professional system administrator whose sense of paranoia has been honed to near perfection over the last 49 years, I also see very much potential damage looming. Once you empower the admin-for-a-day, he/she can then empower whomever they like and before you can say ... eh ... you'll have factions of admin-empowered persons battling each other for the possession of uncyclopedia. Or am I wrong ? I know that in the IRC #chan things work more or less as I fear. -- di Mario 16:05, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

You are wrong in that bureaucrats, not regular admins, are the ones to empower others.
Shame - I could see that battle. You know, with Movie Trailer Announcer Guy commentating on it. This year... the final battle for the wiki will begin. Bruce Willis stars in: THE ADMINISTRATOR. Coming soon to your talk page. Prepare... to be reverted. --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 21:57, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

I think I had the same idea about "Admin for a Day" some while back. I even posted on the Village Dump about it (I can't be bothered to find the page). I don't support the idea now, but at the time it seemed like an interesting proposal. --Señor DiZtheGreat Cuba flag large CUN AOTM ( Worship me!) (Praise me!) (Join me!)

My arse hurts. Could only imagine how painful an admin's arse hurts after all this time. I doubt a day would prove self worth anyways. Tis why I'm not an admin. I go postal sometimes like a plague. Except without the total authority of the site to back me up. Fear... that's what I do. SpacerSpacerPremierTomMayfairChe RedPhone Unsoc Hammer and sickle06:02, 02 August 2007
