User requesting chat moderator: Golfpecks256 Date discussion closed: September 18, 2017 Result of discussion: Unsuccessful; a majority of administrators do not support the request.
a. Why do you believe you are qualified to be promoted to this position?
I am qualified for my activity on chat and my friendly interactions with other users as well. I have been here for 2 years but I really started to use chat more often this year so I have gotten a great experience from the chat and can help the team moderate it. I want to help ESB in as many ways as I can (which of course includes editing) so I am requesting this position for the fourth time to try to help ESB in better ways.
b. Have you had experience with this position before?
I am Bureaucrat on 3 wikias and Chat Moderator & Discussion Moderator on one wikia but I technically have some experience as I moderate a very active discord server which has over 50 people in it! So I moderate that to make sure everyone is following the rules and being nice to each other as well as having fun with them and interacting as much as I can to the users.
c. What are your best contributions to Encyclopedia SpongeBobia and why?
Some of my best contributions include adding articles (Killer Krabby Patty, Soda Machine etc.) and fixing mistakes. I revise the edits that other users make sometimes. But I try to help in any way I can like fixing links and fixing bugs with user's signatures. I have also made some signatures for a few users. I love Encyclopedia SpongeBobia and I love SpongeBob so I request to help this wikia in any way I can and I obviously edit and contribute everyday. I have recently got the Grandma Tentacles badge for editing for 30 consecutive days and I am close to earning the ONE WEEK LATER badge (for editing 60 days in a row)!
d. How do you plan to use your rights if your request is successful?
I will use my rights in a good way and I obviously will use them to keep the chat safe from bad users. Also if people doorspaming, I will leave a nice note on their message wall to maybe check their connection of for them to politely stop doorspaming as it disrupts the chat. To be honest, today there were a few socks which I hate when they disturb Spongebobvstheloudhouse and I am sure she doesn't like that when it happens. There are occasions when a lot of trolls come into chat and I feel I can help ban them to keep the chat back to normal so users can continue their conversations. I will also frequently update the logs and update them upon user's request. I have reported bad conduct in chat many times before so if I am chat mod, I won't need to go searching for an admin or chat mod as I can deal with the user, myself.
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?
There were a lot of situations in which I needed these rights to help users enjoy the chat but I was never given these rights but there were times when sometimes there were no mods or admins patrolling chat!
f. Is there anything else you want to add?
Well today is September 11 and 16 years ago, some deadly attacks happened in New York City in which my father was working there at the time. My father was safe thank god but the city of New York was in ruins and I was sad as I was born a month and a half after these attacks occurred. I am sad about them and I bet everyone is too. But I hope now everyone is ok so we can continue our lives peacefully without war. Anyway, on August 11, I requested for Chat Mod and Chuck123456 advised me to request in a month so I followed his advice and that is why I am requesting now. Depth Strider 10 also told me to request in September. There are 8 Chat Mods but I think 2 of them are Semi-Active while I am Active and I come on chat everyday. SonicTheEpic might resign (Admins have chat moderation abilities). Also Recently, Trevor stated in Skype that he will retire very soon. Sometimes I might not see all of you in chat because of the timezones and the time I get out of school so but on the other hand, I spend long hours on the weekend on chat to have fun with you guys. You guys make me feel so well and welcomed to ESB. 2 years ago I left because I lost interest in this wikia and this year, I came back to see how it was and it has improved incredibly! I am so proud of all hard work that has gone into this wikia since I left! But as I said, I want to help the wikia too so that is why I am requesting on this specific day. Today is a sad day to remember 9/11 and Hurricane Irma which is devastating and bad. So I hope everyone is safe and that is all I have to say for this request. Have a Good Night!
Comment - I can see how too many chat mods would be useless if all the current 8 get most/all of the trolls since the ninth would have no point to moderating. The most expensive boss, Alex.sapre (talk) 01:10, September 12, 2017 (UTC)
Comment - Even though there is a lot already, there might be fewer chat mods in the next couple of weeks or a month or two. Either way, if I become chat moderator now, I may be able to moderate the chat when there are little or no chat mods on chat or in the future if people get promoted from Chat Moderator or demoted from Chat Moderator.

Neutral - Eh, I have no strong opinion on you so I'll leave it at neutral. --LuigiTheMurderer (talk) 03:17, September 16, 2017 (UTC)
Oppose - While you may have had well-thought answers and all, the way you moderating chats when you are the head of it (your Discord server), you don't seem to know how to control the chat, or warn users the correct way. From what I've seen, you only seem to kick a user not "trusted" but keep another user for doing the same thing because he is "trusted" or your friend perhaps. You also have the tendency of believing whatever someone else tells you, no matter if it's a bureaucrat or a troll. This is just your fifth request in total in just the past month, and it could be your sixth if you count the rollback request you asked for. As Nicko said, there are quite enough chat moderators, and that number doesn't even include the administrators and bureaucrats with the chat moderator rights. I can tell you're a great user who has great intentions on helping this wiki, but right now I believe you're not ready and you need to give it some time.

Comment - I don't recall myself kicking users that aren't trusted. I kicked you because you violated the rule of never using the N-word as it is offensive it explains clearing we will not tolerate it. I also warn users with a bot if they do something wrong in the warning channel and even though there are 8 mods, 2 of them are Semi-Active. I follow the rules and remind users (not warn) to follow the rules so an administrator won't need to warn them. I am trusted and I don't kick users if they are not my friends. Plus I have had experience and I think I'm ready!
Oppose - Per Nicko. also if you couldn't control a chat properly then you do not deserve this right at all. You also agree with anyone who is a trusted user and from what I've heard you will possibly not kick your "friends" when doing the wrong things.

Comment - If you had read my answers fully, you would have noticed that I included the fact that TrevorOntario129 is retiring soon so there will actually be 7 chat moderators. (Contact • Contrib) 13:52 September 17, 2017 UTC
