  • I agree. He's a big help on the sprites--Tarscor 01:46, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
  • I Agree With His Nomination He's the only one on here thats not gonna get corrupted. Hes shown devotion to the project. The sprites make BP better but people dont want them as they hate change. He knows loads about Pokemon, and apart from some disputed sprites stuff hes never broken a rule. Finally, hed be a great admin and i think you could at least give him a chance. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010 11:12, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Corruption? What? Glinn Mgraw 12:13, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
He wont get corrupted with the power. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010 12:16, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
I don't think any existing sysops have become corrupted, nor do I think that any of the candidates would. Let's not overstate the level of power here. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 12:57, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
  • I AGREE. He helps fix mistakes for episodes, and he helps with many projects on BP--KukiTalk 15:14, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
  • I Agree. He is the best person to do sprites on this site! Pokemonboy 12:51, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
That doesn't really have much to do with being an admin. Also, even I can make good sprites. tc26 12:53, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Support, he's made really good contribs and he's very nice. Baby G 02:01, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Support. The only reason i opposed in the first place was cause i was kinda annoyed that day and yeah...D: ~~Takoto タコト| サソデイ = 愛 05:45, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Oppose (9)

  • Disagree. The sprites just started an argument.DCM
  • Disagree: has he even done very much other than the couple of sprites? Also, I find being nominated by his brother a little suspicious. MoldyOrange 02:38, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Disagree. His custom sprites are mostly not good in terms of quality. I've seen better. If he becomes an admin, the site might be his personal gallery. There's also a chance that he ha multiple accounts who he calls siblings. Look at their user pages...tc26 12:32, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
you cant say he cant be an admin just because he has siblings. Also there will be other admins who can make sure it doesnt become his personal gallery. I doubt he would do that anyway. Also i have said time and time again, if you think you can do better have a go, and then people could discuss which ones were better. You can do sprites to and maybe some will get used. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010 12:40, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
We can question whether a nomination is valid if it is raised by a sibling. Also, the question isn't over quality of sprites. It is whether he would make a good sysop. I thought the sprites were a good addition in some cases - and the following issues with them were not his fault - but the ability to edit images don't count towards suitability for this role. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 12:52, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
They are definatly my brothers. And the user pages look similar because I'm the oldest, so they always tend to want to copy me. And remember that one time when Ty Lammy made many, many edits just to put in and take away his signature over and over? Does that seem like something I would do?...no...this is the only account I've got here. Blame my brothers for having a user page similar to mine.--☆Tavisource 02:15, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Disagree Only 100 mainspace edits and only just over the minunum registration date. I feel that Taviource generally needs more experience before being granted these powers. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 12:52, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Yeah but you could see how he handles the poweres and if he does bad take them away, im confident that he wont do badly. And if TTE set the minimun date and he has been here longer than the minimum date you cant penalise him for being close to the date, whats the point of saying you can be nominated if you have been here for 6 months but cant win??? --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010 12:56, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Since you are the one with the most doubts about trusting people the power, why would you want us to put it under the risk of trial and error? It is more sensible to identify those we think are suitable to begin with. As for the date, he isn't being penalised for it as it is still under discussion. And the discussion lead me to present my view that he doesn't have enough experience. I think only edging over the date is a part of that, along with the low edit count. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 13:03, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
I have about 200 main space edits!--☆Tavisource 17:08, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
Only 200 in the 6 MONTHS you've been here. Most good users can get 200 in 1 or 2 weeks tops. MoldyOrange 17:10, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
ok, i get your point about the time. Its not so much trial and error as that would be if you did it with lots of people, im suggesting only doing it with 1.

What Im saying is that he makes good edits, and if you think experience is an issue for him, (who knows it might be) all im saying is give him a shot. And if his experience is a problem, then youd have to take the power away if he proved he couldnt do it. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010 13:19, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

It's best to go for those that are quite experienced on the 'Pedia already. Both in time and edits.
It's not just a case of trial and error. Glinn Mgraw 14:11, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Im not saying trial and eroor. He will be a great admin, im sure 100%, if he was bad then you could take the power away. But he wont, he will be an excellant admin. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010 14:29, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
His time here is double compared to mine and my contributions are like 5 times his. tc26 08:40, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Disagree, for reasons stated. Glinn Mgraw
  • Disagree. He spends most of his time on user talk pages. I've estimated the Main is to User Talk ratio and it's 1:7. Not very impressive. It's the Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links06:10 14 Aug 2008
  • Disagree. Most of the time he spends is editing his user page and making custom sprites. hfc2X 06:19, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Disagree. Far too few mainspace contributions. Sorry, Tavi. --ニョロトノ666 20:15, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Disagree. Optimus35 hit the nail in the head (is that how the saying goes?) Gligar 01:24, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
