Hello, I recently had a sudden urge to write about recent events and the perception of bureaucrats within the community. Degen suggested linking it to the RfA page, however, I'd prefer having the consent of the community before adding anything to said page. The essay in question may be viewed here. If the community wishes for it to be moved to a different namespace, then that is fine as well.--

Discussion

Support - It is quite a good essay and I found it usefull. I think it would be a good addition to that page. Btw, consider moving the "Current Requests" section to the top. It is the main reason I go to that page and it takes a while to get to it (lag). Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 19:58, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

I think that the current requests' location is irrelevant to this discussion, but I like it at the bottom because people will actually read the RfA page so they understand the process. Andrew talk 20:04, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Support - It is a very well written article that gets the "b'cratship is no big deal" point across very well. Andrew talk 20:04, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Support - Informative, well written, and interesting. Would be useful to be there. I have no problem with it remaining in the user namespace but also haven't a problem with it being moved to a different one (probably RuneScape). Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 20:26, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Support - Per all supports thus far. Maybe the misconception that 'crats are above other wikians will die. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 20:30, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Support - Well-written and gets the point across. Now that's a throwing weapon!Doucher4000******r4000I'll eat you! 23:00, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Support - Definitely. C.ChiamTalk 03:24, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Support - Yep, I totally think people nominating or being nominated should read it. I keep thinking maybe we should have some "strongly suggested read here first" for sysop noms as well, but I have to admit I've been to lazy to actually do anything past the thought. And that would be easier , just linking to what Wikipedia already has, some great stuff there as well.--Degenret01 04:23, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Support - While I wish we wouldn't need to have this and that the information would simply come as a given, it doesn't. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 04:32, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Support - Conveys the message very well. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 05:27, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Support - Per all. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 09:19, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Support - I like it, very well written. I think it would be much more useful there than on the newspaper.  Tien  13:13, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Support - An excellent essay and well worth a read by any nominee. WWTDD? 20:43, September 18, 2009 (UTC)

Support - Expertly written, worth a read by anybody. Puts the point across very clearly. Ruud (talk)(Suggest me naems) 06:53, September 19, 2009 (UTC)

Request for Closure - Given the age of this discussion and the support offered, I request a closure. Can you implement the changes Azaz?

Support request for closure - Nothing more need be said. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 23:49, September 19, 2009 (UTC)

Closed - I'll add a short section to the RfA page entitled "What are bureaucrats?" and link it from there.--
