Proposal to the SDM community

Haya.

I've been monitoring the situation here at Sky Does Minecraft Wiki. I'd like to offer a proposal.

In situations where it is difficult to determine who best in a troubled local community, or an office in the business world, to promote, the solution of an outside party is often employed. Businesses will bring in someone to take charge and straighten things out.

In a situation like SDM's, where people have been using so many alternate accounts/socks, it is even harder to know who is part of the problem and who are not. By bringing an impartial outsider, that is circumvented.

I see where your newly restored Founder, MagicalMan, has not been responding to messages on several of of his wikis, including the message from Sannse informing him of restoration of his SDM rights, even though having logged in several times in the weeks since.

I've been in correspondence with Sannse and Staff about a potential new program of trusted "Foster Admins" to cover not only Wikis-in-peril from severe vandalism but wikis in the situation SDM has found itself in with "self-vandalism". *I* feel Sky Does Minecraft Wiki is an excellent opportunity to act as a test case. Although, staff has grown weary of dealing with it and has more or less washed their hands of the whole situation. As it stands now, the next actions from Staff will likely see the wiki closed and possibly many of the users' accounts as well.

However Sannse says if this community is willing to accept my proposal, she will grant me rights here, unless MagicalMan opts to do it first. This would not be shutting MagicalMan out. He would still maintain his rights as Founder for if ever he decides to fully return. Which at this time seems he has no intention of doing.

You may check my Central User page for a list of wikis I administrate and others I help out with various levels of contributions from casual editing to aggressive counter-vandal reverts.

Realize as things stand now, unless MM returns this wiki will be without a Bureaucrat. Acceptance of my proposal is the best way to not only untangle the knot SDM has been tied into, but to possibly see admins promoted from the community as well as restore Sky Does Minecraft Wiki's reputation with Staff.

Please, feel free to discuss and put to a vote. A simple system of AGREE or DISAGREE placed as first thing in a post will suffice. If anyone wishes to change their vote, simply edit the post in which you made it.

You're right. The ''...'' And the ''yeahs'' don't do anything productive.

Spontaneous Admin Lesson
Don't feed the Trolls. Whether a malicious Vandal or a relatively harmless Local Pest, the mentality and purpose behind the Act of Trolling is to elicit a response. That's what makes the game fun to them. Ignore them and the fun dries up. When the fun stops, so do they.

Notice how little replies I make.

Seriously, y'all get easily worked up and reply where really no response is needed. Just scan back up through this or any thread, and notice the posts which did not need to be make. The single "yeahs" and the "…" serve no functional purpose and do *nothing* to advance the either the thread's topic or the conversation it veers into.

As for Malicious Vandals, they require *action*. Calm, quiet and commentary-free action. Typically blocking. But no comments or Zingers. Because those too are responses which makes what they did "worth it". Being blocked with all the dispassion as flicking lint from your shoulder is not fun. Or about as much fun as a bug gets when splatting against a windshield.

As I talled you I know every single thing that an admin should know. Zeodex is dangerous u know... Well u don't know bcause ur new here but as much as we ignore him he will do more till we shout a fuck, shit or bitch. As with the yeahs, you're absolutely right, but I sometimes put ... to threats where i didn't made any subjective reply just for receiving a notification when someone replyes there so that I keep knowing everything that happens around. I'm not an admin but I'm still tryng to do one's job.
