I want to make this short and simple. I won't be active on the wiki starting tomorrow, and I wanted to do something about the extra user rights that I have. RevisionDelete and Checkuser won't be of much use to me or the wiki if I'm not around, and Wikia will gladly transfer them to someone else if the community approves. I can't think of a user to give CU to off the top of my head, but if someone can suggest a user below, that'd be great. If not, I don't think there'd be too much harm in lowering the number of users with access to 4. As for RevisionDelete, I think Urbancowgurl777 is a great candidate seeing as she has requested the use of the tool quite a bit, and she's active enough to make good use of it. I may not be around to comment on or close this thread, but I'll see what I can do.

Discussion[edit source]

Support - As nominator. Suppa chuppa Talk 19:01, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Fergie is the perfect choice. Also, again, we'll miss you, and best of luck in your "new" life. Hofmic Talk 19:38, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

Support - I agree Fergie is a good choice. As for the CheckUser, I'd say either Andorin or Sentra. Andorin's easily reached via the IRC and Sentra can be reached via Special:Chat should the need arise What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 19:59, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

Just read Andorin's little message to the community. So I'm withdrawing my comment about him being a CU. Maybe Brains would be good though What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 20:10, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Or we can give CheckUser to brains to make things simpler. That way, everyone with revisiondelete will also have checkuser. --LiquidTalk 20:02, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

Not strictly true. There are 2 Revdel but only one checkuser available so one of them will have revdel but not checkuser if we go down that route What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 20:05, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

Support Fergie with RD - She will be able to use the tool. I do not think Andorin should get CU. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 20:07, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

Fergie for RD - No problems there. I don't think that dropping to four checkusers would be too bad either, due to a lack of people that could use it well imo. ajr 20:16, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

Support Fergie - Fergie is a great choice. (Does fergie even know about this, if she will accept it?) Hair 20:21, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

I think it's a safe bet to assume that she will not reject the rights that she could use. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 20:23, February 5, 2012 (UTC)
I believe it was established before this was set up that Fergie would inherit Suppa's Revdel rights What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 20:28, February 5, 2012 (UTC)
Okay. Thanks. Hair 20:35, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Fergie's a good choice for revdel, and what about Brains or Sentra for CU? It seems that nobody in that timezone has it. ɳex undique 20:22, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Fergie is a sound choice for RevDel and I also would suggest Sentra for CU. Raglough 20:32, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Great choice for the rights. We'll miss you, Suppa! Adam SavageTalk 21:19, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

Sure - Matt (t) 21:21, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Fergie has definitely been requesting revision deletes frequently. I think it would be best if either Sentra or myself had access to the fifth checkuser, as no one else in our timezone has it. 222 talk 00:36, February 6, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Fergie for RevDel and Sentra for CU. They'd both make good use of the tools. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 00:40, February 6, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Fergie for RD is perfect. Some have suggested Sentra for CU, I am fine with that. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 06:28, February 6, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Yeh, Fergie is a good choice for it. I'd also like to request we re-assign Andorin's rev delete, since he isn't active on irc anymore, which is why he got the tool, and isn't active on the wiki either. Oh, and I'm fine with getting checkuser. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 07:25, February 6, 2012 (UTC)

If we do reassign Andorin's RD, then who would you suggest they go to? What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 16:25, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
Any active admin who doesn't have it would do. So I'd say anyone out of Matt, Nex, Ryan, me or Liquid. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 08:10, February 7, 2012 (UTC)
Not I, good sir. I've requested one of those actions maybe twice last year. Someone who would actually use the tool should get it. --LiquidTalk 08:15, February 7, 2012 (UTC)

k - I'm perfectly content with Sentra for CheckUser, per my comments on our previous CU thread. Regarding the two Deleterevision spots, I'd request Urbancowgurl777 per most of the above, and AnselaJonla, who would find a vastly productive use for the tools. She is statistically our most active anti-vandal, and has proven herself diligent, adept and dedicated dozens of times over. Ronan Talk 16:45, February 6, 2012 (UTC)

Errr wouldn't it be better going to an admin? Ansela hasn't even run a RfA. It would be better suggesting an admin who's been serving in the position for a while, at least 6 months I would say What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 16:51, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
...Reasoning for that, pls. Give the tools to someone who'll hardly use them instead of giving them to our most active counter-vandalism purely because they're a sysop? Seriously, SAOW. Ronan Talk 16:54, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
During the initial round of RDs, Joey got rejected as he was not an admin. Also, what makes you so sure that if we gave it to the likes of say ZamorakO o, that he wouldn't use them? Also, SAOW only refers to opinions, not to rights. (Ansela, y u edit conflict me?) What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 16:58, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
Can't tell if you're serious or not. SAOW applies to all forms of consensus. Consensus is required to allocate rights. I won't comment on the rest, seeing as Ansela has declined the tools below. Ronan Talk 17:02, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
I would rather not have it. I don't think I have the experience necessary to use it, and I would rather it went to someone who is an admin already. (Ciph, y u edit conflict me?) Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 16:56, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
Giving Ansela RD without giving her sysop rights is pointless. Also, may I ask how SAOW has anything to do with this discussion? Matt (t) 08:37, February 7, 2012 (UTC)

Closed - I've asked staff to give revisiondelete to Urbancowgurl777 and Check User to Sentra246. Suppa chuppa Talk 15:57, February 11, 2012 (UTC)
