User requesting discussion moderator: MagicSponge123 Date discussion closed: February 10, 2020 Result of discussion: Successful.
a. Why do you believe you are qualified to be promoted to this position?
I am very active in Forums, and even though I'm not quite as active in Discussions, I am currently working to be more active in Discussions. In fact, nowadays I am in Discussions every day! I know of the rules on this wiki, and if I see anything wrong, I would always report it to someone. I am well known on the wiki, even in Discussions, and well known people are always the best fit for a job! I have been on this wiki for a few months now, most of my contributions being in Forums/Discussions. I have literally been on this wiki every single day since I joined and I am a very active user in general, and often I am on the wiki but the wiki is a bit... well... dead. Some people may reply that it's a little early but Pen got discussion mod pretty early too, so it all works out. Another counter I can see to this is "Too many discussion mods." Well, ok, but honestly, how is too many discussion mods a bad thing?
b. Have you had experience with this position before?
Not really. That doesn't mean I won't be good at it though, as I have seen other discussion mods do their job and I have a good understanding about what a discussion mod should do.
c. What are your best contributions to Encyclopedia SpongeBobia and why?
My best contributions which relate to this role are reporting anything wrong to a discussion moderator or above. My best contributions which don't relate to the role are doing episode galleries, creating pages, etc.
d. How do you plan to use your rights if your request is successful?
I would help to make both the Forums and Discussions a better place. I would also warn users who do wrong things in Forums/Discussions and delete or edit their posts. As well as all that, I would also help to update the H&Hs, as there have been many cases where I was active and one or more H&Hs weren't being updated. And, of course, I would help sort out the sockpuppet problem, which is a major issue in Discussions.
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?
Many times. I have seen many inappropriate posts in Discussions and the best I could do is report them. Also, recently there has been a sockpuppet problem, as I already mentioned earlier, and I would help to sort all that out if I became a discussion mod. Well, technically I am already helping out by reporting the sockpuppets, but if I was a discussion mod I could help out even more.
f. Is there anything else you want to add?
I am a helpful, friendly user and I would work very hard to improve Forums/Discussions! I am aware I am requesting at a similar time as The Krusty Krab and I wish us both good luck on our discussion mod requests!
YAAAAAAAAA - you'd be an amazing fit for the job. you're fair, mature, and you seldom violate ESB rules. you've also explained yourself very well! i hope this passes. Idroppedmypen(M•C•E) 16:13, February 3, 2020 (UTC)
I yeeted myself to the Support side because I’m in a good mood! - Bigtimersh5(M•C•E)
Support - You're very active in Forums/Discussions and gave great answers, especially your answers to a and e, that show you're ready for this role. Katie (wall ■ contribs) 22:09, February 7, 2020 (UTC)
Neutral - Your answers bring up the sockpuppet problem, which a lot of users requesting seem to use as a prime example of wanting user rights. However, you only said you will help out with the sockpuppet issue, but didn't mention how. If you elaborate and show that you understand how to use moderator tools, I'll be more ready to support.

Reply - I will help out by removing any comments a sockpuppet says. This will mean that other people will not see the sockpuppet's messages, which means less troll feeding. MagicSponge123(W•C•L•E) 21:33, February 7, 2020 (UTC)
Neutral - Your answers weren’t that great IMO King Puma(W•C•E) Hi!

Reply - Except Korra, who hasn't voted. Anyway, the majority of admins have voted support so I'll still get discussion mod even if Korra doesn't vote. MagicSponge123(W•C•L•E) 12:40, February 8, 2020 (UTC)
