User requesting assistantship: Golfpecks256 Date discussion closed: November 13, 2017 Result of discussion: Withdrawn.
a. Why do you believe you are qualified to be promoted to this position?
I believe I am qualified for many different reasons of which I will state below.
First of all, I am very active! I come on to edit ESB everyday and I am doing my job as rollback very well. I reverted any vandalism as well as unnecessary trivia or edits and fix edits so they follow the manual of style. I fix links but I mostly add galleries for objects or characters. I upload images if nessecary and try to get the high quality ones and make sure everything is organized. I help out new users if they want help and I give them the manual of style and grammar guide as those are the main ones. I also report any bad conduct to any admins to block as I check the wiki activity very often. Those are just some of the reasons I would qualify.
b. Have you had experience with this position before?
Of course I have! I have a lot of experience of being an administrator or bureaucrat on a number of wikis of which some are quite large. The assistant right and tools are included in the sysop right so yes, I have had experience before. Also, I have been rollback here for 1 1/2 months. I have been reverting cross wiki vandalism as well using the rollback script globally.
c. What are your best contributions to Encyclopedia SpongeBobia and why?
My best contributions are obviously the galleries. I like to add new galleries and create new pages if they have a red link. I follow the format of galleries adding the tabs as well as other things depending on the type of gallery. I also update character appearances whenever a new episode comes out! I also replace low quality images with high quality images. I add templates when nessecary and cleanup articles and add more info to articles if they are a stub. I always monitor other people's edits to fix them in order to follow the manual of style.
d. How do you plan to use your rights if your request is successful?
I plan to use my rights to unprotect new episode pages when they air as I'm always on when a new episode airs as well as make sure that all episode pages can't be renamed by regular users (they can't be moved to a different name). I will move proposals from the concerns stage to the voting stage. I will update the Data:Titlecards whenever the official title card for a new episode has been released. Move articles to follow the sentance case. And much more!
e. Have you been in a situation in which you needed the user rights for this position at that moment but were unable to act?
Sometimes! There can be times when I need to add a new Charcter to the new episodes page but non of the assistants or admins are online so I have to wait a while. Also, sometimes they forget to unprotect key pages like for an example, I found an article called Squidward's cousin that needed an edit. Unfortunately, at the time, it was protected as an edit war has occurred for that page in 2016 and non of the admins remembered to unprotect it. There can be lots of articles that are protected that shouldn't be.
f. Is there anything else you want to add?
I just wanted to say, the main reason I am requesting is that some users have influenced me to request for this position of which one case is this thread. Some users have been persuading me to request for a while now which is why I requested on this date. Today is Veterans Day, and a few weeks until thanksgiving. What also influenced me was that a lot of people liked my edits and said great things about them in my user of the month nomination. I just really want to say a huge thank you for those who have helped me in my edits since August - now. I am glad that my edits finally worked out! These are a few people who helped me so my edits are on great standard: Squiddleward, ThomasGaming64, Nick mick, Jackninja5DipperGravityFalls, DanzxvFan8275, AustinD-3, Koolkitty108, Rocky Lobster, Spongebob456, and AMK152. There are many more people who have helped me but those are key ones that I remember. Thank you to all for helping me. I never thought I would achieve this far. Thank you and happy Veterans Day!

Weak Support - I was gonna vote neutral, but I decided to wait for more users to vote, and given how many have supported since I waited, I've decided to weakly support this nomination. ― C.Syde(talk | contribs) 02:15, November 11, 2017 (UTC)
Support - While you have made quite a lot of failed requests in the past, you seem to be qualified for the position now in that you try your best to follow the manual of style and have created galleries that didn't already exist. RedBomb1(M•C•E)

Support - Based on the contents of this application, the quality edits, support from users and prior experience, I have no choice but to support. South Ferry(send me a message)(Contrib) 03:09, November 12, 2017 (UTC)
Neutral leaning towards Support - Honestly, I would wait a little longer. You've made so many requests in the past for different roles, and it doesn't look that good. Although, you have improved majorly since your first ever request. Keep it up, and you might get a full support from me! •кσσℓкιттү<мεssαgεωαℓℓ>(=^◡^=)• 00:46, November 11, 2017 (UTC)
Neutral - Per Kitty. Chuck123456(M•C•E) 14:28, November 12, 2017 (UTC)
Neutral - Seeing the many failed requests you have made in the past, i think i have to neutral. LuigiTheMurderer(M•C•E)
Comment - When people mean: "So many requests in the past that have failed," number 1. That's the past, we should be focusing on right now or the future. Number 2. Those requests were for a completely different position which was mostly chat mod. I have never requested an editing role other than requesting rollback. This is my first assistant request so I don't really know why people are voting neutral as my last request was at the end of September and now its mid-November. My edits are really good which is why I'm attempting this position. (Contact • Contrib) 15:15, November 12, 2017 (UTC)
Neutral - You were a bit overzealous with the requests and it makes you look powerhungry, even if that isn't the case. The most expensive boss, Alex.sapre (talk) 15:28, November 12, 2017 (UTC)
Comment - Honestly, I'm not power hungry and I have explained all the reasons I need this position in detail above. I am a bit concerned that some people are voting neutral due to something that happened nearly two months ago which suprises me as I have been doing great quality edits though people vote against me. I honestly need assistant for many reasons so I can help ESB in better ways. I am gonna be truthful but my requests for chat moderator were a bit excessive as I requested for that position too often. But if this request doesn't pass, then I'm not gonna be agitated but I really want good concerns for me to improve but all I'm getting is about something in the past. That's my point for now and that's all. (Contact • Contrib) 15:43, November 12, 2017 (UTC)
Oppose - Has taken the neutral votes and reasoning very poorly. In response to Alex's vote, he stated "I really want good concerns for me to improve but all I'm getting is about something in the past," showing that he's ruling out the concerns about his amount of requests because they're not "constructive." When I asked him why he's saying this about the concern, he said "Obviously, voting neutral because of too many requests is the worst reason to vote neutral." While it is okay to not agree with a concern or address it and give your view on it, saying that it is the worst reason to vote neutral shows that he can not take criticism well. As much as I want to support this, I can not, due to this, and per Kitty and Alex's points. DanzxvFan8275 (M•C•U•E) 21:07, November 13, 2017 (UTC)
Comment - I heavily respect your opinion (don't take my opinion seriously), but in my opinion, he just think it's unfair. And at one point, I agree with him! Nickmick(M•C•E•B)
Comment - And to just think that is fine. But expressing it like that and saying it's "the worst reason to vote neutral" raises red flags. Like I said, there are better ways to handle it (such as calmly talking to the user). DanzxvFan8275 (M•C•U•E) 21:40, November 13, 2017 (UTC)
Oppose - Per Philly, I would also like to point out I am fairly sure in the past I have seen him abuse his rollback right by reverting users who were reverting his edits. SpongeBot678(M•C•E) 21:23, November 13, 2017 (UTC)
Oppose - Seeing Philly and SpongeBot's reasonings, I have no choice but to oppose. Chuck123456(M•C•E) 21:50, November 13, 2017 (UTC)
Comment - I withdraw. (Contact • Contrib) 22:21, November 13, 2017 (UTC)
