edit Against voting

So, I'm a bit curious. The guidelines don't say anything about whether or not we can vote against a nominee. I'm assuming not and that the voting is run similarly to the Top 3 of the Month or any award page. And if we can vote against: since there's already a limitation on how many people you can support, would there also be a limitation on how many people you can vote against? All apologies if I'm bringing up an already resolved issue. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 03:35 Mar 13 2010

I mean, ChiefjusticeDS is only 4 votes behind Socky. It makes sense to have 3 spots available (to me at least). Necropaxx (T) {~} Friday, 14:59, Mar 19 2010

Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of the last round of voting though? Also, opting too many at one time might be a bad idea. --Mn-z 15:33, March 19, 2010 (UTC)
You do realize that this is the only VFS that's going to be held this year, right? And no, it's not a bad idea, the site is short of admins and all three candidates can have unique roles.. Anyhoo, that's not for us to decide - The Cabal will say their word. FreddThe Redd 22px-Flag_of_Egypt.png 18px-Foxicon.png 15:55 • Friday, 19-03-2010
That's not necessarily the last VFS of the year. If we feel there is a short of admins, we'll open it again. I wouldn't like to op all three by default, as MnZ said, it defeats the purpose of round three and over policing the site is not necessarily a good thing. ~Jewriken.GIF 16:08, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

edit So voting by inactive sysops is allowed then?

I only ask as the voting system is highly geared towards being solely in the hands of the sysops, and by making no accommodation for the level of activity of an individual sysop that means that an individual who has made, say, 30 or so edits in the last six months has more of a say towards the voting of the new sysops then a user who makes an average of 30 or so edits a day for the last six months. Not a criticism, just an observation. User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sigheil Sunday, 20:54, Mar 21 2010 UTC

I'd say it's partly a recognition of status and prior commitment to the site, every admin was appointed at one point or another and we should recognise them for the contribution they have made. But I'd say it is mostly because admins, above all know what the role of administrator involves and thus are best equipped to decide who should fill the role, note that an admin's voice carries no more weight than anyone else's in any other vote on this wiki. So I'd say it is purely so that joke nominations are very unlikely to succeed in attaining admin rank and because admins know the role of admin best, regardless of when they carried it out. That's just my thoughts on the matter. --ChiefjusticePS3 21:00, March 21, 2010 (UTC)
Double votes on forums as well, apparently - but as I said not a criticism, just an observation. User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sigheil Sunday, 21:13, Mar 21 2010 UTC
I think they single votes, since that is how that one forum post's votes were counted. I don't recall what it was about, but I know Hyperbole suggested something or other, I'm think it was dropping the maximum rules for NotM, and there was drama over the issue of double admin votes, but I digress. However, that was on a non-binding vote. --Mn-z 02:01, March 25, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah - that was when I came across it, and I've since checked out the double voting thing and it is VFS and Forums, but I can't remember where I came across that. User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sigheil Thursday, 02:10, Mar 25 2010 UTC

  1. Decisions about adding Ops is work of the cabal - and there is no cabal.
  2. There was discussion about extra poopsmiths being added the last time we did VFS, and that never seemed to eventuate. Maybe it's time to do that now?
  3. There are a few regular users here who don't have revert access, or a few other bits and bob that they could use to patrol the site which would be advantageous - maybe rather than opping one of them we have more users having a little more clout in sorting things out.
  4. If we have VFS again Socky will win anyway, so can we save the issue of the whole voting thing and just appoint him anyway?

edit Response to Puppy Poopy

The problem isn't with needing another poopsmith. There's been no issue with archiving QVFD, BP, and VFD (that's all a poopsmith does). The problem isn't even with reverting the edits made by vandals. In case you haven't noticed, Paizuri, Ethine, emc, Socky, and I haven't been having any problems with that. The problem stems from not being able to ban vandals, not being able to edit protected pages (notably the feature queue), and not being able to huff pages. That's the fucking problem and it's out of the scope of a poopsmith's power (mine) to do anything. And finally, I resent Socky being the only choice to be made an admin. I see serious competition from emc. MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 08:05, June 1, 2010 (UTC)

I'll be running with BENSON as my VP. I will srsly run in a two-party election against Socky with debates and everything. We can do it on Skype and we'll get Walter Cronkite's corpse to mediate. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 08:07 Jun 1 2010
Dex, chill. The bit about Socky was tongue in cheek - in fact most of those points were. The advantage in having more poopsmiths and the like is that it is less time that the admins spend poopsmithing. This means when an admin comes in and starts doing adminny things they can concentrate on BP and ignore the poopsmithery. The reality is that with two admins recently taking on paternal duties, we have a lack of active admin presence, and not enough reliable users to pick up slack. I have tried to take on more personally with IC and USP, but the first took up so much of my time I haven't been able to get to the second at all this month, and have dropped it in favour of only doing what I can. Honestly I can't see a reason why poopsmiths can't block, huff, and hack, beyond the simple case of "that's the way we've always done it."                               Puppy's talk page00:40, June 5, 2009 Tuesday, 08:28, Jun 1 2010 UTC
The only ones who poopsmith are Chief and Rabbi. I've told them both to let me do it all, but they won't. IC and USP have nothing to do with what I said. And are you suggesting adding power to poopsmiths? If that's the case, then poopsmiths will have to be elected rather than just be appointed by the former poopsmith with 'crat support. MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 08:35, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
IC and USP are previously admin run and now falling by the wayside, hence why I brought them up. And yeah, more power to poopsmiths is one option here. I don't know if this means a longer process to appoint smiths - we appoint admins as caretakers of the site, and I'd prefer to think that we choose them on the basis that we can rely on their decisions, amongst other things. The difference between a 'smith and an admin is a 'smith can be unsmithified by an admin if the 'smith acts in a way contrary to what is best for the site, whereas that is harder with an admin. (In fact I don't know if it's even possible.) So I'm for more power to 'smiths, less voting on the appointment of them, meaning less red tape and less admin reliance. tl;dr                               Puppy's talk page00:40, June 5, 2009 Tuesday, 08:47, Jun 1 2010 UTC
My opinion is that we don't need to get new admins just now. The reason being that I think we are just in a period of time when we have several admins missing briefly from the site simply due to personal circumstances and laziness. I suspect some of the admins that are currently missing will reappear over summer, as general site activity tends to pick up around then anyway. While I have no objection to any of the candidates for adminship my feeling is that while there are only a few admins around right now, the site may become an admin convention over summer if we start opping now. Of course if August rolls round and no admins have reappeared then a vote would be a great idea. So in summary, I think we should wait to see if more admins reappear when activity picks up, as it normally does, over summer. In the meantime we have a few active admins around and at most there will just be a few hours wait before an admin can sort the issue out. Not a great long term solution, but I'd say it's good enough for right now. --ChiefjusticePS3 09:23, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
So far, this is the only logical argument against more admins. And it took you too long to say it. You should've just said, "It's summer. More admins will show up. Let's wait till September to give Socky, emc, and Sycamore admin-ship." MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 09:30, June 1, 2010 (UTC)

edit A real round of VFS in the near future (read: August)?

When the most active admin is ostensibly me, and more things are being done by users than admins such as me, then things can't be good. Viable, active candidates are coming through the woodwork so I say we're just about due.

Also, before anyone talks about admins disappearing, users disappear even more frequently. Any schmuck who pays any attention to site dynamics notices that 95% of us, admins and users alike, come and go in phases. This is because Uncyclopedia is a hobby site. When we make an op, their disappearance just becomes more noticeable, since we thought they had less of a life than the average user. Chiefjustice points this out above, but instead of not making any new admins at all, which is a bad idea, what we need are "complement admins". This is why Cs1987 was such an ace-in-the-hole: because he was Australian and covered different time zones. A whole bunch of guys like Rcmurphy or Evilzak or maybe even CRUSHERBOT may magically reappear when the tides of winter approach, but that doesn't mean that should stop us from opping Andorin Kato, who has been the site's biggest asset in the last few weeks and seems like a perfect summer complement (or e|m|c or Dexter or Ethine or Saberwolf anyone else worth mentioning). --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 09:32, July 24, 2010 (UTC)

Sure, it's going fine, with your and other people's great help. But there have been many times that an admin isn't around at certain hours, and who know how many of them would like a break to do other things here, like write (some of the great admin writers haven't been as productive lately, and maybe the pressure of having to answer questions and navigate the site has taken their attention off of writing). So lots of the senior admins should get together and decide if a new one or two are needed, not guys like me logging on and often quickly off when I'm around a computer. Aleister 16:07 24 7

There is a large list of potential admins here simply because a handful of admins have been unilaterally blocking any request by non-admins for new admins for over a year, with the sole reasoning for doing so being "A few of the old ones will probably show up in the near future, maybe, probably, possibly tomorrow, who knows, but they could appear at any moment, maybe before I even save this bullshit excuse as to why I'm against giving anyone else ops." One can see that exact reasoning being used just a bit up on this very talk page. Couple that with all of the users who should have been opped years ago (Sycamore, Socky, and emc all come to mind), and you're bound to find yourself anally raped one of these days.
Opping at least five people is clearly the only good choice here. And allowing the community to have a say in whether or not new admins are needed instead of leaving that choice to current admins is the only way to prevent this situation from happening again.

In your opinion. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
Going through the active admins list, I agree. Only about 5, tops contribute with any regularity. And most of the time you have about another 6 non-admins taking everything to QVFD and ban patrol and 99% of the time the admins agree with them, and do what they would have done if they had the power. Isn't an idea to op these people that do most of the hard work? - Snowman111 Butlerstar Frosty dah snowguy contribs KUN PLEB Big GREEN Button Big red button 07:41, April 12, 2011 (UTC)
It's certainly an idea. But a better idea is that we op User:TOAST, that way we get multiple admins for the price of one. --Black Flamingo 11:29, April 12, 2011 (UTC)
No, and I can't make this clear enough: The idea is to op people when we need ops. The whole "deserving" bit doesn't apply here - it's whether ops are needed on Uncyclopedia. I could come up with a whole slew of arguments of why this is a good system, and you could come up with a similar barrage of arguments as to why it's unfair; but this isn't the point. The point is, historically, we opped people only when necessary. This hasn't magically changed.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  formspring) 06:08 Apr 15, 2011
Addendum, as to why this doesn't contradict my comment on VFS about opping two people: I've always been for opping multiple ops at a time, since it a) gives the new admin(s) someone else on their level to talk to and b) should a newly-made admin suddenly leave, we have a backup. Not saying that's likely to happen here, just saying that there're good reasons why, when holding a VFS, we ought to op more than one person.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  formspring) 06:14 Apr 15, 2011
I think you make it clear enough; don't be so hard on yourself. --Black Flamingo 11:54, April 15, 2011 (UTC)
As valid as those reasons may be numerous admins stated at this time that they felt that one more into the ranks would be enough. Following the rogue temp opping fun last month a number of active admins, as well as other long term active contributors, took a leave of absence. IMHO, I've felt that we needed another admin on the books since the turn of the year, but others clearly felt differently. Thing is there is no rush, the site isn't about to disappear, even if people ran amok for a week without admin activity it could all be sorted out. If we have another vote to decide if we need more admins next month then great, if not until the month after then great. Despite some people pushing an agenda that change is needed (which I am far from dismissing), change is frequently a slow steady process rather than something sudden and violent (like my sex life). My feeling is that one new admin is good this month, we can look again next month if necessary. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
"A week without admin activity" never happens; it's more like three hours late-night when you can't find anyone with a ban-stick. "It could all be sorted out" but with more coverage, it could be stopped before it has to be sorted out. However, if you set out to vote one new Admin ("between one and two," Froggy?) then do what you set out to do. Looking at the vote and changing what you were voting on, or conceding to comments from the peanut gallery in the middle of a vote, is the wrong way to do things. Spıke ¬ 12:59 15-Apr-11
The "between one and two" is, of course, a joke. I'm also for opping two along the same lines of Dr. S. When two ops are appointed at once, they develop a kind of cameraderie and synergy with each other that works excellently towards the site's advantage. Plus, as Jack Pheonix said on the main page, the scores at the top are so near each other and far away from the rest, it would be brutally unfair to appoint one and ignore the other. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 22:41, April 15, 2011 (UTC)
There seems to be a little less activity here than in the past, so why are we bring new people in? We should be maybe looking to vote to de-op someone rather than op. mAttlobster. (hello) 00:22, April 16, 2011 (UTC)
And then ban all the new users. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 01:16, 16 April 2011
Spike, it's not the wrong way to do things at all. Uncyclopedia is largely informal and the "rules", such as they are, are constantly in flux. Looking at a very clear trend in a voting pattern and completely ignoring it in favor of the "rules" (which, mind you, are as arbitrarily decided as anything else on the site, and have a unique history of their own) is being - to put it lightly - extremely stupid. To do so would be to ignore the facts in front of you. It would be relying on guidelines instead of common sense. Situations change and people have to adapt. Then again, I think you have some personal difficulty in accepting that rules are not the only way to make decisions.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  formspring) 01:21 Apr 16, 2011

The fact that users get to vote for whether or not we need ops is very recent and only barely passed. It's unreasonable to assume that we'd get to vote on whether or not we need 'crats. And do you really want to feel the obligation to vote on something that might come up once a year? I don't Jackofspades (talk) 07:51, 1 June 2011
Actually, it was already decided that during the month of June we will be using VFS to vote for bureaucrats. Therefore the admins and any active bureaus will be using the first 10 days of the month to vote on how many bureaus we need. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 07:56, June 1, 2011 (UTC)

edit Edit Count Thing

Is that really relevant for a 'crat? The only significant power that 'crats have that admins don't is the ability to change user rights, which isn't something that is urgent compared to the various administrative tasks. I'm more concerned about someone who will be around consistently on a daily/weekly basis, not someone who is on IRC 14 hours a day when active but may live the wiki for months on end. And more importantly, I'd want someone who isn't going to abuse their 'cratly authority. --Mn-z 13:10, June 11, 2011 (UTC)

If they're "user rights" but they can be changed, are they really rights at all? My apologies for blowing your mind. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 17:22, June 11, 2011 (UTC)
People's rights are granted and taken away in many ways. Felons are an example of a citizen with revoked rights even after incarceration. Habitual drunk drivers can lose their right to drive. A person given the death penalty has lost his "right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness". I am just making a position that while it seems it shouldn't be so, rights are only as good as the benevolence of the authority that can take them away. No matter how inalienable they may seem to be. Blow this. --K evillips эвилипс MUN,CM,NS,3of7 19:45, June 11, 2011 (UTC)

edit Are we interested in getting rid of VFS entirely?

Zombiebaron described something vaguely RfA-like, but simpler. Apparently it's what this place used in the old days before this turned into a cage-fight. See, it'd be nice to be able to vote for folks based solely on whether they'd be useful and actually improve things, than do we need more? and then who would be the least bad one(s) to fill in the more? We can op folks without needing more ops, and there are plenty of effectively sysop-only things on this site that don't need doing but from which we would still benefit if they were done. Those who do not get opped may also benefit from directed feedback from the failure, as such a method would actually require people vote against instead of just voting for someone else instead for who knows why. And in theory there would be reasons involved. We could even ban people who don't give reasons in a civil manner. Doesn't that sound fun, another reason to ban people? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 06:42, 2 December 2011

edit Proposed alternatives to the VFS system

I think the vote above was in favour of changing te VFS system from my tally, but there was some confusion as to what the new system was going to be. So I figured rather than vote on a system that hasn't been fleshed out, let's argue for a while on the merits of different systems and go from there. VFS at the moment has several stages, so while we're putting it through the mincer let's look at them.

edit Voting on whether we need a new admin

This is done in a varied number of ways, depending on who proposes it. It usually is an admin only vote, or the admins pull out their "two for the price of one" vote cards so that it becomes admin dominated. As those cards have now been voluntarily handed over, it may make a difference to the outcome of the vote. However the question on my mind is why do we need to vote to begin with? Jokes aside, there is no shadowy cabal. It's a matter of users who have proven themselves worthwhile in site maintenance and other such bullocks who have been granted elevated rights to be able to do more complex maintenance tasks. I've swung away from the question of "Do we need another admin?" to "Does a particular user deserve to be given admin rights?"

edit Voting on candidates

First there is the nomination and round one voting. Next there is round two voting to ensure that there are only a few options, and there is closed voting that is admin only style stuff. Do we really need all these different rounds of voting? Honestly, can't we just say "Okay, candidates have shown themselves to be uncyclopedian by wining UotM. They are still active in that they have edited within the last month. You have a choice of 12 different candidates, and everyone gets 3 votes to choose as they will." Or something similarly simple. Rather than a long and drawn out process of nomination and elimination votes, let's accept tat we've already picked out people who have shown community spirit, and go from there.

So dot pointing:

  • Can we have too many admins?
No. --ShabiDOO 21:53, January 24, 2012 (UTC)
  • If someone has been given admin status and then shown to be a wanker, can we remove admin rights?
Yes, initiated, discussed and voted on equally throughout the entire community. --ShabiDOO 21:53, January 24, 2012 (UTC)
  • Should there be a vote on who should become an admin?
Yes, unless a really good alternative comes up. --ShabiDOO 21:53, January 24, 2012 (UTC)
  • If there is a vote, who can vote, and should some voices be heard louder than others?
Any registered user can vote. No...no louder voices ever, the process should be initiated, discussed and voted on equally throughout the entire community. --ShabiDOO 21:53, January 24, 2012 (UTC)
  • Can we simplify the voting process?
That would be grand.
  • Should IPs be allowed voting rights?
Not on admin voting unless the IP is an active user. --ShabiDOO 21:53, January 24, 2012 (UTC)

  • Based on early polling it seems kinda likely that we'll be doing the full VFS this month so I wanna get this proposal in early. I'd like to go back to an older system where admins did all the nominating. During the admin nominating process, admins are encouraged to vote either for or against and provide reasons and feedback with their vote.

edit If there is a VFS this month, can we have community wide nominations, and then a final admin-only vote?

Like it says in the blue box at the top of the page? Because to be honest, the community knows who they would like to have as admin, but the admins know who they work well with. Likewise the admins know who they can work with, but the community has a right to have a voice. Any of these proposals will be likely to have a similar outcome, but given that the 'crats can de-opp - and would do with the support of majority of admins - they need to have a louder voice in this one arena, otherwise the entire system becomes a bit of a debacle. Maybe not so much this time (assuming there is a vote) but there has been vote tampering in the past in other areas. Let's not set up a system that will encourage that now. Pup 11:31 01 Mar '12

Puppy...you dont know how you are going to work with an admin until they become an admin. In any case, its your responsibilities to make things work, its not up to the community to deliver admins that other admins want or like or wish to work with (this wiki is not an adminotocracy), but its the responsiblity of the admins to get over their differences or petty problems with others, work together and keep the site working. --ShabiDOO 12:29, March 1, 2012 (UTC)
Oddly, Shabidoo is entirely right about that one thing - someone might seem like they'd make a good admin and then turn out to be a complete failure who goes around reverting everyone, but there's nothing anyone can do about it besides yell at them until they go away (which actually does work surprisingly well, but that's not the point) because people refuse to deop admins even after they do the most ridiculous things. Anyone who does make a good admin would be able to do that latter thing, but there's really no guarantee of that. Fortunately nothing too horrible has come of it yet that I know of, but even so a little accountability might go a long way.
That said, have you noticed something about how the community tends to nominate folks? Sure, they nominate deserving ones... they also nominate everyone else, too. It gets downright confusing, but there really isn't any incentive not to treat the entire process as a joke and nominate all your friends and non-friends and random fools. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 14:54, 1 March 2012

I sort of get this whole Idea that admins think the process of getting new admins is not just a joke, but some kind of assault on their very being. Even though you are the product of this very process, apparantly, its very stupid and not worth anyones time. I would never insinuate that the nomination of one user by another user is simply a case of favouratism or budy budy-ing or fixing votes. The whims and will of any user should be respected no matter how much you dont like it, nor whatever you assume about their motives. If anything, I think admins nominating their own friends and choosing their own buddies is the biggest form of favouratism and budy budy-ing I can think of. Its the ultimate vote fixing. A small percentage of the community gets their way under the guise of the website self destructing if a user they don't like gets chosen. --ShabiDOO 20:02, March 1, 2012 (UTC)

edit So

We should totally op Oliphaunte. I doubt he'd do anything useful, but our last new admin hasn't even logged in that I know of since being opped, so it doesn't get much worse than that. Does it? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 03:24, 2 March 2012

That one has still lasted longer as an admin than the one before. Pup 10:17 02 Mar '12
That would make them the best admins ever? Leading by doing nothing, administrating by not micromanaging things and allowing he website to organically control itself. Administrator of the year!!!!!!!!!! --ShabiDOO 19:49, March 2, 2012 (UTC)
