Salix of Prifddinas TalkContribs • Last 20 Forum - Main - User talk editsEdit count

Salix has been a great contributor to the wiki for the past year, making a huge difference on new updates (particularly quests and Prifddinas) and taking a lead role making navboxes and other navigational tools. He has regular use for sysop rights both during hectic new update days, and more generally for page and file maintenance related to navboxes. He's a fast learner of new technologies, and he has a lot of great ideas for making the wiki better. He's had a wonderful positive impact on the site since he burst onto the scene, and I think it makes sense to make him an admin now. ʞooɔ 01:54, August 26, 2015 (UTC)

I, Salix of Prifddinas, accept this nomination for adminship. I have read the policies concerning administrators. I realise that this nomination may fail. If I do get community consensus, I promise not to abuse my tools because I realise that this is a serious offence. If the community finds that I have done so, my tools will be revoked, and in extreme cases I could be given a community ban.

Questions for the nomineeEdit

1. What administrative work do you intend to take part in?
I intend to continue to contribute to (new) articles for new releases. I'll continue to work on (quest) navboxes and everything related to quests. I'm also going to make new navboxes for inhabitants of cities, e.g. Falador, Yanille, etc. If I become an admin I'll be able to move pages over redirects myself and delete/redirect duplicates.

2. What have been your most helpful contributions to the RuneScape Wiki, and why?
Prifddinas, because that's my favourite city on Gielinor. I've contributed alot when the city was released. Afterwards I've been contributing to the new releases especially quests. Over the last few months I've been making a lot of quest navboxes and making sure the existing ones are consistent with each other.

3. Have you been in any conflicts over editing in the past or have other users caused you stress? How have you dealt with it and how will you deal with it in the future?
It's possible I caused Mol and IP83 some stress, I want to apologise for that. And if there's an issue, I'll post on that editor's talk page, and make a comprimise so we both are happy with the result.

4. Should this request be successful, which of the following, if any, do you wish to be added to your account: IRC operator; Clan Chat administrator?
None.

Additional questions (asked by the community if necessary)Edit

  • What do you think an admin's role should be in the community? cqm 01:26, 30 Aug 2015 (UTC)
    • Be active on the wiki, be helpful, e.g. look at the requests and help others when needed. Do anti-vandalism. Check the forums. Willow tree Salix of Prifddinas Prifddinas lodestone icon 01:44, August 30, 2015 (UTC)
      • With respect to the forums part of your answer, I notice you have relatively few forum namespace edits. Do you intend to increase your participation in discussions or are there reasons you don't now? cqm 17:06, 30 Aug 2015 (UTC)

Neutral - As it stands, currently, I'm neutral. The discussion may turn my vote, though. --Sucy_orb_2.pngScuzzy BetaLuna_Nova_sigil.png 02:49, August 26, 2015 (UTC)

Note - However, as Salix has continued to be helpful with templates and such, I'm leaning towards his favour. --Sucy_orb_2.pngScuzzy BetaLuna_Nova_sigil.png 03:01, August 26, 2015 (UTC)
"Helpful with templates" is an incredibly stupid reason. MolMan 03:46, August 26, 2015 (UTC)
Support. I was hesitant at first because of the time you've been at the wiki seemed like a short amount, (It's longer than I've been here I think tbh). What I meant by "helpful with templates" wasn't really worded correctly, forgive me Mol for I was fatigued. I looked through your contributions, thought about it, and you've just been incredibly helpful in pretty much every way.

Soft support - He's got some quirky habits when editing, and he likes completionist capes too much, but who can blame him. Anyone who's followed his edits for any amount of time can see he's enthusiastic about improving the wiki and he's definitely working in areas where he could benefit from the tools. MolMan 03:46, August 26, 2015 (UTC)

Support - Seems like I've never seen this user before, most likely because he isn't active in the wiki chat. However, browsing through his contributions clearly show commitment and enthusiasm on improving the wiki. -- Spined helm SpineTalkBook of knowledge 22:02, August 26, 2015 (UTC)

Support kittens - Ever since he started editing (jan 2014), he did show he wants to improve the wiki in many ways. Yes, he has some quirky habits, but people learn from mistakes, in which I think he did. He'll benefit from the tools. Kitten taxJr Mime (talk) [VSTF] 22:10, August 26, 2015 (UTC)

Neutral - You're a nice/friendly guy, and you make a ton of helpful edits/templates, but the argument for needing the tools hasn't quite convinced me to support (I haven't seen you do any anti-vandalism) Star Talk Star sprite 14:32, August 29, 2015 (UTC)

Comment - I have reverted vandalism before, but usually others beat me to it and revert vandalism before I can. Willow tree Salix of Prifddinas Prifddinas lodestone icon 19:51, August 29, 2015 (UTC)
Changed to Weak oppose, after reading Ozu's comment, and that becoming an admin wouldn't stop other users beating you to reverting vandalism. Star Talk Star sprite 17:32, September 9, 2015 (UTC)

Oppose - He's certainly an active and friendly contributor. However, I've seen at least a few (recent) instances where his impulsive and obsessive nature has caused some potentially trivial situations immediately turn into conflicts. Instead of welcoming advice and/or constructive criticism, he takes other users' edits too personally. I'll provide a few examples of such comments and actions: one, two, and three. Again, these are just three recent (2015) situations I've noticed personally. We all have our "quirky habits", but acting in haste is something that admins should avoid. I also agree with Star's comment. For now, I oppose. 5-x Talk 13:25, August 30, 2015 (UTC)

I think he's actually shown great improvement in not taking everything personally. In this conversation with Ryan you can tell he's a little annoyed, and that sort of small conflict is something he'd probably take personally in the past. But you can also tell he was able to keep his cool and the two come to an agreement. This is something I said to him about a month back that honestly comes off as a little harsh. He didn't even respond to me, probably because he had nothing constructive or nice to say in response. My guess is he might have been a bit upset, but even if he did take it a bit personally, he never let it get the best of him. I also tried to outright insult his abuse of acronyms (one of the quirks I dislike, but I digress); his response was fairly level headed (actually looking back, it was kind of witty to reply with several acronyms, I didn't notice that until now).
A disclaimer though: I'm not Salix. I'm just a self-proclaimed Internet psychologist, but I can't say I know for sure what was going on in his head at those times; just my best guess. MolMan 13:39, August 30, 2015 (UTC)
I may have taken other user's edits personally before like 5-x says, but I have left those behind and all of those "conflicts" were resolved, 1. list was moved, 2. I took that to the forums and it was decided to not go further with it, 3. I was on my phone and the rollback and undo are literally above each other and no one pointed me to the Forum:"Prifddinas" or "Elf City"?, later on I learned of that forum and have been enforcing that forum's decision. When one is better informed, one can make better decisions. That's why there are talk pages :).
1. About the QPMC that was my bad, I didn't realise it was alphabetical and it was resolved quite quickly. And I wasn't annoyed, I just wondered why that order was used. 2. I agreed with Mol that Shop link was a bit too much, so I used plink. 3. About the acronyms, that's just laziness on my side, because I usually edit alot of pages at once for those navboxes, and writing down an acronym was much faster than writing down the whole quest's name. I don't think anyone wants to type Ritual of the Mahjarrat a hundred times. :P Willow tree Salix of Prifddinas Prifddinas lodestone icon 18:55, August 30, 2015 (UTC)

Weak oppose - There's no doubt Salix of Prifddinas is a consistent contributor to the wiki, although I had a look at his deleted contributions and personally did not see a lot of tagging for deletion, which is something admins do that regular users cannot, so I don't really think he needs the rights myself at this point in time. Ozank Cx 17:19, September 9, 2015 (UTC)

Closed - Since this is one of the more contentious RfA's in recent history, I feel I should explain the reasoning behind how I've chosen to close this request.

Salix of Prifddinas has shown he's an active, positive influence on the wiki in the past year and a half, catching the eye of many editors in his time here.In that time he has made mistakes, much like we all have, but has shown the ability to learn from them. Given his activity and work in certain areas of the wiki, he has naturally found himself in need of administrator tools. With that in mind, and no real lack of trust in the candidate, Salix of Prifddinas will be given sysop tools. cqm 17:50, 9 Sep 2015 (UTC)
