  • Hello Eliteforcers,

    As you may know, it's been a few months since I've logged into this Wikia. I would first, like to apologize for that, as I've been extremely busy. After coming back today, I've read through a bunch of discussion on the Wikia, and it seems there are plans to put this Wikia into adoption, you guys want a new b-crat, etc. 

    First, let me just say: I ask that we please do not consider the Wikia for adoption. And with that being, I'm making this post, because we as a Wikia, need to work together to find someone responsible enough to take the position of bureaucrat, and take full responsibility of our Wikia. This is what this post is about. We will take this process for selecting in 3 phases. No specific dates are given, but general time frames on how long each phase will be, are listed below.


    PHASE 1: Who's Interested?

    In order to get a new bureaucrat though, we need to figure out, who's interested to be one, and who do the people want it to be. So with this post, we'll be figuring out who is interested.

    If you're interested in becoming a potential bureaucrat on the Wikia, please comment below; your username, your current position, and why you're interested. Please note: just because you comment, it doesn't mean you'll be put into the voting system.

    PHASE 2: The Voting System

    And that leads into Phase 2: The Voting System. A thread regarding that will be released in a couple of weeks, where the top 2-3 current admins, judged by myself, will be up for voting by the people, in a week or so.

    PHASE 3: The New Bureaucrat

    Then Phase 3, which should be out a week later or so, will announce the new bureaucrat.


    I apologize for the long post, and for this process having to take two weeks, but we need to make sure that we recruit someone that's dedicated, and willing to take the responsibility of our Wikia.

    Last thing, please know that I will still be keeping my position, but I will be deemed as inactive, unless anything changes later.

    If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact me on my message wall.

    Thanks,


    Small

    • My name is Duggie Davenport. I am an admin. I want to be a bureaucrat because I think I am best for the job. Since the wiki has gone inactive in January I have been advocating for the wiki, the one who started the cause for the new bureaucrat. I will be behind whoever you and the community chooses. Also I am one of the most active admins here. I believe I can handle the responsibility. I find time after a busy day at school to come on the wiki. I come on everyday. I have done a lot since my arrival in February of last year. I was here through some of the worst times of the wiki. I was promoted to chat mod and rollback in just 2 days because of a troll invasion. All the way ending with my adminship. Even since the show's ending I come on and love the wiki. This wiki has a special place in my heart. I love all the people I have met since joining and wish to keep on expanding and keeping the wiki with the legacy you have given it.

    • My name is MaximaMischeviousNeo, i am a Wiki scavenger. I want to be a bureaucrat because I think I can handle the responsibility for the Wiki. Since the wiki has been going down hill, nobody has been doing any major events what so ever, and i think that is potentially hurting the wiki which is pushing people away from it. I have been practicing this for Month's and i am extremely active. I will have integrity and honesty and i'll put the wiki back into its prime state. I will first bring back Chat parties, make contests and many other new stuff that can help the wiki better. Over and out.

      Hi, I hate to have to break it, but I'm going to have to decline, only because you're somewhat new, and not an administrator.

      Sorry.

    • Username: ShinxBoy1

      Current Position: Administrator

      Interest Reason: I would like to become a Bcrat because I believe that I can handle the responsiblity. I'm still very active on the wiki, as I come by to check on it every 1-2 days, even if I don't say anything or make any edits. Even back when I was just a regular user before I became a content mod, I always wanted to have a role in keeping this wiki in shape. And once I became a content mod, and then later an admin, that role was fulfilled. So I would like to keep on expanding that role in any way I can. Even with the show ending, I still love the wiki and the people who it's allowed for me to meet. No matter who gets chosen, I know you will make the right decision, and I know that whoever you choose will do just a good of a job as you've done for the last 2 years. Even if I don't get picked, I will still do my best to help the new Bcrat keep the wiki's legacy standing.

    • My name is ElectricSupernova, (formerly Willk1088). I am currently an administrator here. I have been on this wiki for nearly a year. I come on here every day, and I have made so many friends. Like Bionicforce, Chase McFly, and Duggie Davenport. This wiki has become a priority for me. It has been really fun coming to this wiki and seen how it evolved. Although we might've had some conflicts, it all just comes back together with our friendships. I'll try to keep the wiki going, even though I've had some conflict in the past.

      Edit: I will also try to restore things that have been abolished. I will allow more contests, and will try to hire more admins and mods.

    • Username: Bionicforce

      My Current Position:  I am curently an administrator.

      My Interest: My interest in being the new bureaucrat on this wiki is because I think I can handle the responsibility of being in charge of the Wiki. Some of the things I would do if I became bureaucrat on this Wiki is, A) accept at least one more bureaucrat to help me do the job. B) I would bring back/introduce some fun events to the Wiki, such as chat parties, etc. and finally, C) I'd try to get to know each user better.  I would not touch the rules, I would leave them the same because I agree with them, and I will give out necessary warnings to users that need them. I do try my hardest to check in twice a day, I check in usually when I first wake up in the morning, and when I get home from school each day.  I would just like to say that LabRatsFan123 has created a legacy here and I hope to continue that legacy, or even finish it. When I first became an admin here I think I screamed in excitement because I never ever once thought in a million years that  I would ever become and admin here,  and I thank you for the opportunity to be an admin. This Wiki has been my home for almost a year now, and all of you are my family.

      I hope you will take  all of my ideas into consideration.

      A bureaucrat is like an admin but they have official control over the wiki, can make official forums, organize events, and promote or demote users.

      Well, this wiki could really use a b-crat now. Or what? I think we can increase activity by pretending it's May-July again and EF's coming back in a couple of months-so we can have chat parties and contests.

      Well, we don't necessarily need Elite Force to come back in order to have chat parties and contests. We can still do that regularly, without the show.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah.

        Loading editor
    • We've spent about two months with no b-crat now. Adoption or not, what do you guys think?

        Loading editor
    • I think give this little more time because he might be busy. With we choose to adoption this LRF might demoted you. I think wait for him comeback is the only way we can get new b-crat. We still do phase 2 when LRF get back.

        Loading editor
    • Someone has to do the second phase without him to try to get the voting system up.

        Loading editor
    • We have to wait 3 months after he is gone until admins can adopt.

        Loading editor
    • I think that could work but with he reply back and we just wait other three months. It just coming back and forth each time.

    • Yes but I want real chat parties as well as contests back so people will actually come to my unofficial ones.

    • There are few users that is still on here. They probably go to other wiki.

        Loading editor
    • I really don't want the wiki to have to be adopted, but I know it's the only real option if he doesn't come back. We'll give him the extra month we would have to wait anyway before we do anything drastic. Then, someone might adopt it. At this point, it's not what we want to do, it's we have to do.

    • The last time LEF be active was march 6 and when it be June 6. That way it will be three months. So one of admins can adoption this wiki.

        Loading editor
    • We have to wait till then whether we like it or not. But honestly I don't think LRF is ever coming back. He probably has other things going on in his life, the wiki is hardly active anymore so there's not much reason for him to take time out of his day to manage it. That said, I do hope he comes back, so we can transfer ownership smoothly and easily. But I really doubt we'll get so lucky.

      LRF has been inactive for months, Shinx, so we need a new b-crat. I've heard dead wikis are often attacked.

    • But how would someone else become BC without LRF being here to promote them? That's what I meant.

      If someone fills out an adoption form to adopt the wiki and gain bureaucrat rights, then one of the main Community Central/Fandom staff members will grant the adoption (if the user's application is good enough), and whoever has the rights will be able to run the wiki or do whatever they please.

        Loading editor
    • So...who's gonna do it?

        Loading editor
    • Idk lol.

        Loading editor
    • It'll either be Duggie, Will, Shinx, or Bionic, as the adopter has to already be an admin. Fandom Staff can give the admin who adopts the iki B-crat rights. However, as Ariette, MM123, and Logan have declined, it can only be one of those 4.

        Loading editor
    • I'll do it if I have to. It needs to be someone who everyone agrees on though.

        Loading editor
    • Well, I think either you, Shinx, or Bionic would be fit to do it. Then if anyone wants a co-host, they can promote whatever they think will help run the wiki. Duggie's less active now. Electric would be a good fit too though!

        Loading editor
    • I know, let's start a vote arranged by admins to see who should adopt the wiki ASAP, so everyone can agree on the adopter.

        Loading editor
    • That sounds like a good idea, Chase. ^^

        Loading editor
    • I second that, Chase. Sounds like a good idea. I mean, we were gonna vote on the next b-crat back when LRF was still here, don't see a reason to change.

    • Star I am active.

        Loading editor
    • And only admins can adopt.

        Loading editor
    • I still think either Shinx, Bionic, or Electric should do it, Duggie. They used to edit constantly and I'm sure any one of them would be a good fit for the position.

        Loading editor
    • I still think we should let the community choose. From the list LRF has. I am still an admin here, and it is rude to me that you think I am not fit for the position, that is discrimination. I am sorry if I sound rude but that is what I think. I am plenty capable of doing if I defy the odds.

    • I'm not saying that you're not fit for the position, I just think they're a better fit. I'm sorry if this offends you, but not saying anything against you and I don't understand why you're making this out to be like that.

      But overall, yeah, it's the community's decision, not just one person's. I hope this wiki gets a new bureaucrat though—we need one soon!

    • I am sorry that is just the way I read, I agree with Chase though everyone should have enough chance to be a bcrat. It is up to the community to decide, and if the bureaucrat wants he can choose other admin to be on a bureaucrat council of sorts.

    • An administrator could just create another thread and highlight it, so when anybody comes on to the wiki, whether they'd been here before or not, they'll get a notification about it.

      As for the actual voting, we can always create a poll like the one on the Polls page.

    • Eh... I think we should do a google form.

    • I like that idea too, but then only users with a gmail could vote, so some people who want to vote might not get the chance.
