edit Shortening the VFS process

As i have noticed with the last couple of VFS occasions, it seems that some of the steps of the process of electing new sysops are too long to be reasonable, as most of the users yote within the first few days and then ignore the page entirely until the next step. Take the current step as an example. The current admins are voting for weather or not we need new admins. currently, the tally is at 5-0 admins voting for new admins. All of the votes were cast on November 1st, and nobody has voted since then. At this point, it would seem presumable that more admins are going to be voted in this month, and that we should just move to nominating and voting for the candidates. To make this simple for people, here is a vote on the subject.

Score: +3 Users who think that the VFS process needs to be shortened, and -2 admins, who could actually shorten it

edit Another proposition

Forget the 11th and 21st, make each stage end of the 10th and 20th. I've fallen victim to these unusual dates once too often, much to the dismay of Flammable, Spang, and other admins I bitched to about opening VFS one day ahead of schedule, run-on sentence, etc.

I've seen 2-vote stacking done in the past, and apparently the concept of 2 votes is only a precedent that's assumed. Shouldn't this be established as a set-in-stone policy to prevent future cabaling, or something of the ilk? --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 00:43, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

As there's only two sysopings going to happen it makes sense to have two votes. I'd be against "vote stacking" though, if you only want to vote for one person do so, but don't giving two votes to the same person just seems very wrong and screws up the contest, often for very personal reasons on the part of the voter. One vote per nominee. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

I'd always assumed that the second stage was for deciding who's good enough to be an admin, and this last stage is basically just an extra vetting step, where each candidate gets a yes, no, or don't mind/care each. So basically just give your opinion on each one, or just put your name under the one you'd like to see opped most, or least, or whatever. No limits or vote stacking. Or we could always do whatever feels right to you, man, in which case my 36 stacked votes stand. Spang talk 20:57, 30 Nov 2007

Charitwo, I think you may be misunderstanding the essence of Uncyclopedia IRC. At Uncyclopedia, it's not just about banning fucktards. To be perfectly honest, if we removed all trolls
  1. There would be nearly no active chat ever, because nearly every regular partakes in troll-like behavior at points
  2. There would be nearly no humor, and that would ruin the point of IRC.
  3. There would be nothing to talk about! Uncyclopedia doesn't technically need an IRC in regards to "developing and stabilizing a wiki." Sure, we talk about it often enough. The topic is always about something Uncyclopedia-related. But UnIRC is more a place to blow off steam, to let Uncyclopedia transcend being just a wiki and become a community of sorts.
Don't take this the wrong way, because I love you and your fast-action revert button to death (and your assless chaps, but that's a different issue entirely), but this is not the way to go about getting ops. And, if I'm being perfectly honest, I don't see the absolute need for it. Starnestommy holds down the fort pretty well as the anal-retentive pencil pusher, and everybody else is competent enough in their IRC op skills to merit their access. And if they act like retards and you don't like it . . . well, you're not exactly a regular converser there, so just go to another channel. Lord knows Freenode has a lot of them. In the meantime, lighten up! Pull up a chair! Don't look as I slip this roofie into your drink.

I've been around the channel long enough to know whats "acceptable behavior", but that's not the point. I don't appreciate comments like that from Codeine, or anyone else for that matter, at all. I really don't care enough about op access to argue for it, it was just a suggestion. Life goes on. --CharitwoTalk 04:21, 30 March 2008 (UTC)
And for the record, I don't talk all too much because I'm always on the fight against wiki terrorism (all of wikia), there are other places outside of Uncyc! I talk when I can (usually when I get pinged or notice something to comment on) and note that I also go by the kirby alias a lot so I don't get pinged by the RC feeds. --CharitwoTalk 03:16, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

  • There is a problem with having inactive administrators listed on a list of administrators: if users blindly pick from the list, they are bound to pick someone who may never reply to their query more often than they select someone who will. Sure, we've all got Todd Lyon's talkpage on our watchlist, but its always rather unwiedly to be required to begin every response with "The guy you asked this question to comes around every 6 months, so you're stuck with me". Therefore, I feel we should create some system that allows the inactive (I think 6 months without a single edit is probably a good definition) admins to retain all their privileges (should they swing by looking for something to huff in a hurry), but also removes those admins from Special:Listusers/sysop. As I proposed above, I think the best way to do this would be through the creation of a usergroup (tentatively called "inactive sysops") with all the same privileges as "sysop", whereto all inactive sysops would be transfered (with a message on their talkpage explaining this whole thing, and a promise that they can be returned to normal status if they so desire).

  • Actually, I just realized that there is an opposite solution to the problem (as I outlined it in that large paragraph thing above): we create a list of active sysops (once again, based on 6 completely editless months). This could probably be at Uncyclopedia:Active Admins, or something similar. We could then replace the "Find Admin!" link on Recent Changes with a link to whatever page we end up creating. This method would do away with the somewhat messy business of making decisions about people who are not around and cannot vote on their own fate. I support this solution too. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 16:26, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Tradition? Oh, I'm sorry Tevye, but you're mixing your traditions here. Traditionally, we only make more ops when we need them, and if only a margin of one admins thinks we need more, that's hardly a large margin, and we don't need more. An example of this would be the various "Reopen VFS Votes" of 2005, some of which failed or passed by small margins and were thus inconclusive and unrepresentative of a clear outcome.

No no, I'm fine with it all (except that horrendous pink background colour on the template). Just trying to encourage a little more community input and so forth, in that annoying selectively democratic way of mine. Is there such a thing as selective democracy? *wanders off pointing at random plants and flowers and murmuring quietly to himself* -- Sir Codeine K·H·P·B·M·N·C·U·Bu. · (Harangue) 23:48, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
Talking of democratic ways... Rather than tilting the process in favour of administrators who hold a particular view point, would it not be better for admins to talk to each other a bit more? MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 14:52, Jul 12
Guys! I have a solution! We could become an anarcho-syndicalist commune! We'll take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week. But, all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special bi-weekly meeting, by a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs, or by a 2/3rds majority in the case of more major issues. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 16:42, Jul 12
Who's that? MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 16:45, Jul 12
Must be a king. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 16:45, Jul 12
Oh, how can you tell? MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 16:45, Jul 12
He's not covered in shit. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 16:45, Jul 12
I'm fairly sure that the background is purple. Also, there still is "community input": anybody who wants to change the +3 threshold can speak up now, and force a vote to reverse my actions. Seriously. If you're reading this section, and you're like "Woah, what just happened? I don't like that!", just start a vote. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 16:51, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
Here it is Mr Baron sir... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 16:58, Jul 12

edit Uncyclopedia:Active Admins

Bam: Uncyclopedia:Active Admins   Le Cejak <17:25, 11 Jul 2008>

Your list made me sad. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:59, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
"Past 30 days" might be a more interesting list than "past 6 months." Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 21:02, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
Also, I would have voted against. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
I've solved the confusion with a redirect.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 02:13, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
What if someone wanted to make an article on the AA? Eh? Eh! Spang talk 06:51, 12 Jul 2008
Changed the redirect to UN:AA, as most other Uncyclopedia: namespace page shortcuts are in this format. Problem solved. -- Sir Codeine K·H·P·B·M·N·C·U·Bu. · (Harangue) 10:32, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
Ah well. I just thought it'd be awesome when someone asks for help they're directed to the AA.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 11:53, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

edit Off the subject

Wouldn't UN:AA make a spiffy category?--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 18:20, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Or a userbox? -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 19:21, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
Sure, if only I was un-lazy enough to add either. Spang talk 21:00, 12 Jul 2008

edit Back on the subject

Active Admins is a way better name than Admins On Duty. The latter implies we have some kind of duty we should be expected to do, rather than just "would probably respond to a question if asked". Spang talk 21:00, 12 Jul 2008

How about Admins On The Job? Sound like a 1970's British Comedy. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
Don't forget the film Carry on on the job. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 00:53, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Was that the one between Carry On Up The Kyber and Carry On Slipping In Innuendo? -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
It came right after Carry on not bothering to use "show preview". Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 17:05, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Three of my favourite films... -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
Really? I thought that the first one didn't have nearly enough cheap double entendres. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 22:32, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, but with the latter they managed to shove in enough to cover three films. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
“Oooo! Shove in enough, did they? That reminds me of when I captained a boat, back in the war. We never did manage to send a German boat to the bottom with one of our torpedoes. The seamen under me were quite disappointed, let me tell you.”
~ Charles Hawtrey
“Oooooooh missus.....was that when the Rear Admiral got blasted all over the poopdeck? I can still close my eyes and see that mighty vessel erupting...”
~ Frankie Howerd

edit Is it me

Or is it the first time that everyone started self voting? What happened to "those who want to become members of the cabal must never show their intentions?" ~Jewriken.GIF 09:31, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

I pulled out of the race, which is sort of a strong self-against. By your rationale, that creates something of a paradox... --UU - natter UU Manhole 09:33, Jul 14
It's always been possible, I'm pretty sure, just uncouth. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 11:21, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
Kids these days! Etc! Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:02, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, its you. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 18:44, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

edit ZOMG! Change to nomination stage is late

According to the instruction template, the nomination phase should have started already. --Mnb'z 17:18, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

In GMT it's still the 10th. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 17:30, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
Nomination stage starts on the 11th, doesn't anyone here knows how to read?!?!? ~Jewriken.GIF 17:31, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
I was thinking the 10th for some reason, sorry. --Mnb'z 17:47, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
I thought it was Socky who kept apologizing. O_O ~Jewriken.GIF 18:03, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
It's quite obvious that they're both the same person. It is to me anyway. -RAHB 20:06, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
What the fuck are you talking about? -Sockpuppet of an unregistered user 20:33, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

This happens nearly every goddamn month. Who says we should just change the official start of the nominating period to the 10th? --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 20:27, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Nah, it's fun seeing the citizenry stumble around each and every month. ~Jewriken.GIF 20:29, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
We'll get you, my pretties. And your little dogs, too! -RAHB 21:41, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
If you ask me, (which you won't, pricks) Mnb seems a little eager to get started with nominations. Sir SysRq (talk) 21:45, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
He's waiting for his chance to nominate me for a second adminship. He's still too new to realize that that can't be done, but it's a nice gesture. Thank you Mnbvcxz. -RAHB 21:47, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
I still say it's bogus. Perhaps he wanted to nominate me for "Regular User". Sorry, Mnb, I just can't accept that responsibility. I enjoy my current status as "Freeloader". Sir SysRq (talk) 21:52, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
Get off my damn couch! -RAHB 22:09, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
Huh? -Sockpuppet of an unregistered user 22:10, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
Get a job, slacker! - T.L.B. Baloon WotM, UotM, FPrize, AotM, ANotM, PLS, UN:HS, GUN 22:12, Feb 10
Hippy! Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 22:30, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
Bum! Sir SysRq (talk) 22:31, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
Hobo. -Sockpuppet of an unregistered user 22:33, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
