It seems we are down to a single active 'crat, Dtm142. Now would be a good time to elect another. As being a 'crat is not for everyone, these SHOULD be self nominations. Whilst I can't speak for anyone else, I'm looking for a long-standing admin who is calm, active on the wiki and active in the community. What do other people look for in a 'crat? Anyone fancy putting a good foot forward? Administrator Hurston (T # C) 10:05, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I support of motion of having another 'crat. Several other 'crats have been inactive for a while, and I wouldn't mind seeing another active 'crat for this wiki.   az talk   13:04, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
"long-standing admin who is calm, active on the wiki and active in the community"-Unfortunately even that seems to be becoming harder to find (not so much the level-headed part, but the long standing) many of our admins have lapsed into inactivity and the majority of those active, though good at their jobs, are still quite new in retrospect.-- 15:55, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
I'll do it. Yes, please go for it! Looking at RS:ADMIN, our three oldest active admins are Chiafriend12, Amaurice, and Stinkowing. I might have missed some, but I'd support a self-nom for any of them *nudge*. 16:05, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
He he, actually I quite like the sound of either Hurston or Amaurice as 'crats.-- 16:08, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Hmmmm... I would really want Karlis to be a crat, but, again, he's a bit new. Butterman62 (talk) 16:43, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Whoever is nominated for b'crat must have a deep understanding of policy and most show that he or she is unflappable and even-handed and stays cool, calm and collected in tense situations.--Diberville 17:26, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

While I would normally step forward for something like this, I'm afraid I'm not cut out for the job. I have been learning to stay calm under pressure since Halloween, so maybe this would be a viable chance for me to prove my maturity. But regardless of the circumstances, I personally think that this would make me feel a bit unnerved, since I'm known for my hyperactivity. As for activity on the Wiki, however, I'm actually willing to learn new things that could help the wiki (like some of the terminology I don't currently understand), so that may be a plus.
In fact, would it be a good idea for me to try a self-nomination for 'cratship so that I could see what areas of wiki-wisdom I need to hear? (edit: and how do I make a RfB-nomination? The same way as an RfA?)7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko)

Go for it, Stinko. Same as RFA, except the box on the main RFA page that links to your RFB has "yes" instead of "no" under "bureaucrat".

Does it have to be a self-nomination? --Santa hat.png Da Sasuke Man! CHIDORI!(Contribs)(Edits)Wintumber tree.png 20:59, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
No, I believe they just would prefer to see a person step up and say their ready, rather than have another do it for them. (Though it really has no bearing on my own judgement).-- 02:25, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
It is not necessary for it to be a self-nomination, but the reason that I suggested this is because it shouldn't be taken on lightly, and the person has to want to do it. If you want to nominate someone, I would suggest at the very least talking to them first and making sure that they would accept the nomination.

We will probably need at least 2 or 3 more crats. This wiki really needs more crats. One just isn't cutting it. I think Chia or Amaurice would make great crats. Amaurice especially since I see him as being the most mature and responsible person on this wiki. Prayer-icon.png Sir Lenehan File:Smite old.png|25px 05:46, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
I would agree with 2 more. A total of 3 active 'crats would be a good number to have. Administrator Hurston (T # C) 09:27, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
Now we have a shiny new 'crat, and Whiplash seems to be back (for now), I think we can consider this dealt with for the time being. Administrator Hurston (T # C) 14:53, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
