RFA

This is my application for being made IRC admin. This is the first application of its kind as far as I am aware, since I did not receive this status upon becoming wiki admin due to me not being very active in IRC at the time. This has now changed, however, and I visit the IRC channel pretty much any time that I'm behind a computer. I have a bouncer set up, so I receive all messages even when not behind a computer, and I have an IRC client on my phone connected to the same bouncer in cases of high emergency.

Oppose - This should have been done over at RS:RFA. MolMan 22:07, December 2, 2015 (UTC)

Question - I never visit IRC, but as a procedural question, since there may be an issue, if IRC admin is automatic with wiki admin, shouldn't you just be able to ask? --Saftzie (talk) 22:09, December 2, 2015 (UTC)

So did I, but I asked Gaz and he said I should request it.

Mostly because IRC op was requested in the RfA but was resolved as no consensus. Its the same process as the clan chat admin, if unrequested/not granted. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 22:15, December 2, 2015 (UTC)

question - do you know how to do op things like kicks and bans and adding funny things to the topic? svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 00:13, December 3, 2015 (UTC)

Comment - IRC op, much like CC admin, is a position of community trust and thus requires community consensus - it's not an automatic right. As it was not gained in the RfA, a separate request is required. For the record, this isn't the first IRC op request in the Yew Grove[1], [2], [3], although I believe it is a first for a sysop to request it. I don't particularly mind the result of this either way, it's not any of the current ops do much but change the topic every now and then. cqm 16:52, 3 Dec 2015 (UTC) (UTC)

Closed - There is no consensus in this discussion. This has been one giant lump of apathy. I am closing this primarily to allow for a new discussion, which will (hopefully) be taken more seriously. This closure should not be construed as an unsuccessful one for the purposes of recommending a "waiting period" before the next request (meaning Psi can start a new request in five minutes if he wants to). --LiquidTalk 06:03, December 8, 2015 (UTC)
