Note: This topic has been unedited for 1111 days. It is considered archived - the discussion is over. Do not add to unless it really needs a response.

Since everyone else is pulling out crap from the corners of their brains, I figured I might resurrect an awesome idea I had back in the days when we were men. Sysop for a Day. The premise: Once in a quarter we op one our lowly peasants, from a range of helpful to the useless gobshitey, for one day. He/she/it/heshe/shit can have near unlimited power to do whatever he/she/it/heshe/shit wants, from helping around to throwing down an iron fist, or simply fucking shit up. If he/she/it/heshe/shit is helpful, we can debate whether to op them permanently in the future. If he/she/it/heshe/shit is an asshat, we can debate whether to ban them or op them again for our further amusement. It's win-win for us! Unless, of course, it destroys to very fabric of our Uncycloverse, in which case, at least we can say we went out in style.

Come on, let's do it at least once! I voluntarily remove myself from candidacy to make a statement that I care only about the project, not my own will to power. It'll be like peeing on Famine's grave! -- Kip > Talk Works Puzzle Potato Dry Brush CUN Icons-flag-us 06:17, Jun. 20, 2011

I like the idea, but I'd like to amend your statement
  • The person is to act like a regular sysop. (i.e no dickery and abuse of powers)

I think this a great idea for a number of reasons:

  1. When a real VFS roles around, the user can make a call. Is becoming an admin the thing I want to do? For a number of users would prefer not to.
  2. It gives an indication to the community that this user is a capable admin, again when a real VFS comes around.

Just to name a couple. So yes I support this notion, the question is will our current sysops? --Snowman111 Butlerstar Frosty dah snowguy contribs KUN PLEB Big GREEN Button Big red button 06:51, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

I reject your amendment, under the principle that nothing I contribute to this site should have a net-positive effect. -- Kip > Talk Works Puzzle Potato Dry Brush CUN Icons-flag-us 07:02, Jun. 20, 2011

So there was an original proposal, then? Have you a link, by any chance? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 08:30, 20 June 2011

God, did I always sound like such a wuss back then? Though reading Insineratehymn's comment and my response made me lol hard. -- Kip > Talk Works Puzzle Potato Dry Brush CUN Icons-flag-us 08:55, Jun. 20, 2011

this is the best thing anyone has EVER said EVER!

I nominate Lollipop and Mimo. Seconded Thirded Fourthded DONE!!! When do they start? ShabiDOO 11:42, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

Lollipop for admins? Heh --Snowman111 Butlerstar Frosty dah snowguy contribs KUN PLEB Big GREEN Button Big red button 10:42, June 20, 2011 (UTC)
Admin for a day and I couldn't be any more frikin serious!!! ShabiDOO 11:48, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

WHAT ABOUT ME I WANT TO BE ADMIN???!!! --Snowman111 Butlerstar Frosty dah snowguy contribs KUN PLEB Big GREEN Button Big red button 10:47, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

Okay....okay zheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesh. Fine...its you and Lolipop. You start tomorrow. ShabiDOO 12:00, June 20, 2011 (UTC)
No I start Saturday, I have to do stuff during the week. :D --Snowman111 Butlerstar Frosty dah snowguy contribs KUN PLEB Big GREEN Button Big red button 10:56, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

I feel proud of myself

For jumping the gun and making a parady already --Snowman111 Butlerstar Frosty dah snowguy contribs KUN PLEB Big GREEN Button Big red button 10:56, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

I'm ready for it

This should be entertaining. I like that idea, but let's reform VFS so that anyone can put their name in and see if they get voted. Not voted? Admins can clean it off. Being able to delete shitloads of words on articles without getting banned is probably what I want to do (I don't advocate page blanking). GiratinaOriginForme |Si Plebius Dato' (Sir) Joe ang Man on Fire CUN|IC Kill 800px-Flag of the Philippines svg | 11:40, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

Oh wait I took all of this seriously, wasn't I meant to?

Voat, should we hold a sysop for a day experiment in the near future

Score: 2
  • Symbol for vote For. The reasons I listed earlier, and come on how much damage can be done in one day!? --Snowman111 Butlerstar Frosty dah snowguy contribs KUN PLEB Big GREEN Button Big red button 06:53, June 21, 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol for vote For. but in the mean time lets get you two as admins while they arent looking and while they throw sugar at each other to vote up the crat stuff! --ShabiDOO 14:11, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Hmmm...If I was sysop for a day...

Here's what I would do:

  1. Ban Fnoodle for a day.
  2. Nominate then feature Vandalism/example_ON_WHEELS!!!
  3. Start a forum about how admins are better than users and contradict my own arguments.
  4. Delete exactly one bad article.
  5. Make an Invader Zim reference every time I ban someone.
  6. Drink (but I would probably do that anyway)

Hmmm. Yeah, I'm probably not the right candidate for this. It's Mrthejazz... a case not yet solved. 21:02, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Okay...sorry Frosty. MrTheJazz wins. No matter what Lollipop has to be one, and since someone arbitrarily said we will make two users Sysops...it will have to be Jazz and Lollipop. And...logically I should have two votes, cause, Im Shabidoo, and that makes sense, and since no one else in this round has any votes, I guess, I will apply one of my votes to MrTheJazz and I will apply the other of my Shabidoo votes to Lollipop. I suppose they win then...sorry Frosty...better luck next time. Its just seeing what MrTheJazz will do...especially starting yet another forum about how Admins are awsome, I just CANT WAIT! And ofcourse, cant wait to see the fresh vision Lollipop will bring to Administratorship. You guys start tomorrow at 00:01. :) --ShabiDOO 21:13, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

If I was admin, this is what i'd do:

  1. Ban Lyrithya infinite and take away her admin rights.
  2. Feel guilty and unban Lyrithya.
  3. Eat cake.
  4. Whenever a cyberbullying page comes up, it gets featured.
  5. The prize for getting a feature is a one week ban.
  6. Any trash talk to admins, equals an infinite ban.
  7. Eat more cake.
  8. Huff HTBFNJS, I mean who the hell reads it anyway?
  9. Every time I ban, I use the same reason: "I'm better than you".
  10. Forums can get featured.
  11. Eat some more cake.

No fucking pick me!
I put up with the IP shit vandalism and the shit IP creations, I revert their idiocy and shit. I report there vandalism, I get their shit pages deleted. I have to put up with their shit talk and trolling when the admin doesn't ban them, so if anyone deserves oppage its me, because of all the shit I put up with for you all. So all in all fuck each and every one of you. --Snowman111 Butlerstar Frosty dah snowguy contribs KUN PLEB Big GREEN Button Big red button 10:47, June 22, 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol for vote For. Yes, they're buying into it. Good. Good. -- Kip > Talk Works Puzzle Potato Dry Brush CUN Icons-flag-us 15:32, Jun. 28, 2011

But how?

Sounds cool in theory, but here's an issue: how in the heck are we going to pick someone to be opped? We can't op truly randomly (that is, let a bot or script do it) because we could easily op someone with malicious intent or confuse somebody who doesn't know what's going on. We'd have to either come up with specific criteria (say, an account X days old with at least Y edits) or hold yet another vote, and most of our votes these days barely pass muster (with a few exceptions). So yeah, how?  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 16:39 Jun 28, 2011

Skullthumper...you are casting a dramatic fog over a vote to see if people are even interested in it. We havent even gone past the "who is up for it stage". Could you please take a step back and just see how people feel about the idea before worrying about grand hypotheticals and procedural worries? --ShabiDOO 16:48, June 28, 2011 (UTC) Why don't we see if there is any interest in this before worrying about hypotheticals and proceedures? :) --ShabiDOO 21:53, June 28, 2011 (UTC)
I tend to think in reverse, namely because there's a sizable group of people who would only vote for something if it were well planned out in the first place. I tend to be in that group.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 03:30 Jul 04, 2011
Prove me wrong, but it would be a jaw dropping moment for me if this actually happened :) --ShabiDOO 03:37, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Maybe it could be the grand prize in a future writing competition? MadMax 23:16, June 28, 2011 (UTC)

Ahhh ha ha ha. Being an admin seems like no great reward to me man. It seems like a liability to me...having to deal with bitching whining users like me all the time and having to make tough calls and getting no thanks for anything. Pass ;) --ShabiDOO 23:41, June 28, 2011 (UTC)
We just ban them. With great power something something something. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:25, July 4, 2011 (UTC)
So you are suggesting that the winner of a competition should be banned? Its really not a half bad idea! --ShabiDOO 05:41, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

MrTheJazz

Okay...now its MrTheJazz' turn!!! --ShabiDOO 07:26, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Finding a way to make this work...

If people are serious about getting this idea to work, isn't drawing up criteria for our candidate(s) be a good start?

Feel free to add stuff to this list, but users should fit this criteria:

  • Be a user with at least 3 months of experience on the site.
  • Have made a minimum of 2,000 edits on the site.
  • Have been "active" for the last 1 month, preferably.
  • Not have been banned recently for any serious offences (Cyberbullying, blanking, vandalism, etc).

Does this sound like a good start? ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Icons-flag-au 04:43, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

No.--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 12:26, July 6, 2011 (UTC)
Wait. You should perform a naked ritual in front of all the admins first, until you have the unfaltering aproval of every single admin. And maybe 3,000 edits, 200 pee reviews, 100 features and active on this site for 13 years. Is that enough? --ShabiDOO 12:34, July 6, 2011 (UTC)
And you need a 0-60 of five seconds and a quarter mile in the thirteens. Oh, and cupholders. People love cupholders. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:39, July 6, 2011 (UTC)
And if you can shave 15 Donkeys faster than Mimo and Maxis you got the job! --ShabiDOO 14:42, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

Banned for a Day

Sounds much better, who's first? -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 18:13, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

Too bad you didn't mention that on the second (of July) I would have volunteered (since I was offline from the third to the fifth). -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 01:46, July 7, 2011 (UTC)

BAN ALL THE ADMINS FOR A DAY

Oh no. oh no. All of the IPs will wreak havoc. Its the end of uncyclopedia! IP TYRRANY! --ShabiDOO 18:18, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you so much for volunteering -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 18:22, July 6, 2011 (UTC)
Yes...just give me the tools and Ill start the banning. 24 hours? 1 week? Perma? The longer the ban...the longer the irreversible damage to uncyclopedia by IP TYRRANY! --ShabiDOO 18:52, July 6, 2011 (UTC)
