Inquisitor Ehrenstein[edit]

Requested user-rights: Administrator.


I am currently an editor and I have been contributing here for about a year, and have reverted vandalism edits, tagged spam pages for deletion, and written a few articles. I have also created several wikis, and I am familiar with the the sysop tools and interface. I also assume good faith, and give the user of an unproductive or mildly disruptive edit a warning that their edit was disruptive before blocking them. I also have developed access (I recently uploaded the files for one of the extensions I created) and I am currently starting a project to develop new Vector based skins for the benefit of wiki sysadmins who want a different Vector skin from the standard one, which would be more appropriate for their wikis. As an administrator, I would also be open to requests from other users if a particular page was a vandalism target and needed protection, or if a page needed to be deleted. For protection, I understand the convention that most pages should be protected for the minimum amount of time necessary, with the lowest level of protection necessary.

I've also got significantly better at writing in German in the past few months, if there's a need for administrators in the German section of the wiki. I tried to look to see if there's a way to see if there's a list of administrators by language section.

Oppose Oppose - I have had pretty good interactions with you, but I think you've been doing a few eccentric things like making your own tagging system, which makes me have doubts about your maturity. --Jasper Deng (talk) 01:12, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
If it's the same tag I'm thinking of, they were deleted and I just use the regular deletion tag. ఠ_ఠ Inquisitor Sasha Ehrenstein des Sturmkrieg Sector (Talk) (Contr) 02:28, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
Well, administrator access requires maturity. I really did not like this - this is part of what I mean by "maturity".--Jasper Deng (talk) 03:00, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
I've learned from that, and I ignore things like that if I see them. I also a lot more cautious about tagging non English spam pages, since once it turned out it was just a user page that said "funny page" in a cyrillic language. I've learned to be a lot more conservative. ఠ_ఠ Inquisitor Sasha Ehrenstein des Sturmkrieg Sector (Talk) (Contr) 03:32, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
Support - Taking you at your word for above, but in my interactions with you have seemed trustworthy. -- MarkAHershberger(talk) 11:38, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
Oppose Oppose I was orginally going to abstain from commenting on this one, But I have decided to oppose due to the prior interactions (as Jasper has already linked to the part that isn't deleted), and Having a look at the deleted user contribs don't show much in-regards to anti-spam matters, In addition the request doesn't make much use case for needing the rights apart from the "blog-standard" reasons and I'm already known on my views about just handing them out for people to deal with matters such as spam and page protection. Peachey88 (talk) 11:44, 9 May 2013 (UTC)
Oppose Oppose for many of the same reasons as Peachey88 -- looking through your contribs I see a lot of support desk activity (which is great but you don't need +sysop for that), and some otherwise questionable edits that indicate you aren't fully aware of how the site actually works (putting user scripts in Manual and personal projects in the main namespace -- these should probably go under either Extension or a User sub-page). This coupled with lack of any good reason for actually wanting admin makes me oppose this request. --Skizzerz 02:56, 10 May 2013 (UTC)


It looks like this is a N Not done then. --Krenair (talkcontribs) 16:41, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Since there aren't many votes, is it alright if I direct people here, or is that not ok since people might abuse it by directing people who would vote for them? ఠ_ఠ Inquisitor Sasha Ehrenstein des Sturmkrieg Sector (Talk) (Contr) 21:02, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Whilst we don't have a policy about canvassing here on mw wiki, We don't do rights requests as voting per say, We judge the comments people make, not the number of votes (eg: 1 strongly written oppose can easily topple several supports). Peachey88 (talk) 11:44, 9 May 2013 (UTC)
