I think we have enough forum administrators now, and no longer need any more until our forums grow dramatically. Why? Too many forums admins will result in implementation arguments. And, All the rules are enforced already. There is rarely a vandal in the forums, so we don't need that many for that purpose. And, since Sysops have most of Forum admin tools anyhow, we have more then enough to keep our forums secure and monitored. As an example, I offer the "count to 10 before..." threads. So many admins visit the forums, that in all 100+ pages only once did they actually count to 10. That's how well the existing Admins are doing their jobs.

Comment - What harm would more forum admins do??? As far as I can see they would only be a benefit, unless one vandalizes. And there are times where the forums are deserted by admins. Prayer.png Jedi Talk HS Log Tracker Summoning.png 22:28, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Comment - Unless I'm not mistaken, normal admins have most of the tools that forum admins have, except the ability to create polls and stickies. I hope that got my point across. :)  Tien  22:47, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

That is correct. I have done deleting/blocking and whatnot on the forums when no forum admins were on and I was the only active admin on the Wiki. From what I saw, we have almost all administrative tools there as well. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 22:51, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
I think the only tool that you do not have is Creating Polls. And, all new Forum admins are from similiar zone, so it wouldn't make much difference. Now that's a throwing weapon!Doucher4000******r4000I'll eat you! 00:44, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Comment - Reminds me of how we also had one about admin population. We still agreed (As a consensus) that more the better. I don't see how having more forum admin would be any wrong. Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 00:57, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Comment - Don't mean to be offensive, but is this thread created against me? Because I just requested for forum adminship and I had to cancel my nomination because I read this page. Oh well, I could always try again next year. --Disk of returning.png Malcolm33 Disk of returning.png 01:08, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Comment - When there was a yg discussion about limiting sysops everyone was up in arms with the "more the better" and "we are volunteers, we dont have jobs or requirements" arguments. Now we have stopped accepting nominations for clan chat admins, and forum admins, hypocrisy much? Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 01:50, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Tebuddy your judging the entire community based on what a couple people say. We are individuals and should not be judged based on what some one else is saying as you are doing. As for clan chat admins, people join for two days and ask for a rank because they think its a clan and it would make them special.And we have a limited number we can rank there. --Degenret01 02:07, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Oppose All Editors are Equal and limiting the number now is trying to create a seperate class of wikian, some thing that needs to be avoided in the extreme. No one is special, no one is better, and trying to mak it so is a bunch of BS. Stop it. Everyone shlud have a shot to become syop or forum admin if they want. If you want a limited number then this is the wrong wiki for you.--Degenret01 02:07, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - These should be judged on a case-by-case basis. If someone would make a good forumadmin, then they should not be limited by their peers (and if someone would not make a good forumadmin, then simply oppose their nomination). Have faith in people, not numbers.--

Request for Closure - I see that what I have suggest would go against the spirit of the Wiki and only damage it. And, to Blackhole, no it was not against you or anyone else personally. Now that's a throwing weapon!Doucher4000******r4000I'll eat you! 03:06, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
