User requesting discussion moderator: Idroppedmypen Date discussion closed: January 10, 2020 Result of discussion: Passed.
a. Why do you believe you are qualified to be promoted to this position?
I am very active in both Discussions and forums. I know the ESB rules and have consistently followed them sinced I've joined. I am generally well liked among users, and I believe they would listen to me if I told them what they were doing was violating one of the rules. I also have over 600 board thread edits (I know that isn't much, but it's something) and about 1000 Discussions posts. I have been active on ESB for over three months.
b. Have you had experience with this position before?
Kind of. I'm a bureaucrat on my own wiki (which is actually somewhat active), and a bureacrat on the TAoSS Wiki. I've also had to deal with trolls on my wiki, so I've had some practice.
c. What are your best contributions to Encyclopedia SpongeBobia and why?
I spend most of my time in Discussions and forums. I like to answer people's questions that they ask in forums. I also help people to remember to follow the rules in Discussions.
d. How do you plan to use your rights if your request is successful?
I mainly want to improve Discussions. There's too much drama. I would remind people not to create offensive posts about other users, and delete or lock those posts. I could also regulate unnecessary polls and quizzes. I'd delete inappropriate comments and posts. I would also help to update H&H's in forums, since those take ages to update.
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?
Tons of times. Again, mainly in Discussions. Very recently, someone made a somewhat inappropriate post about a character's butt, and I couldn't do anything about it. They then proceeded to spam pictures of another character's butt in the comments, and again, I didn't have the power to delete them.
f. Is there anything else you want to add?
I feel that we need a discussion moderator focused on Discussions over forums, and that I would be great for the job.
