#I felt blocking a user or anon was quite hard as we did not any form of guidance whatsoever. I basically blocked according to how severe I thought the wrongdoing was. If it was a massive troll or spam attack, perhaps a week or two block. If the person just vandalizes a couple pages, I might have done a day. It is hard to say that I was fully consistent on these rulings, as I did not have anything to refer to. I do like the procedure one of my fellow Wiki Mods told me about, in which they revert the inappropriate action up to 3 times, and if they do it a fourth time, then they block the offender.

  1. I felt blocking a user or anon was quite hard as we did not any form of guidance whatsoever. I basically blocked according to how severe I thought the wrongdoing was. If it was a massive troll or spam attack, perhaps a week or two block. If the person just vandalizes a couple pages, I might have done a day. It is hard to say that I was fully consistent on these rulings, as I did not have anything to refer to. I do like the procedure one of my fellow Wiki Mods told me about, in which they revert the inappropriate action up to 3 times, and if they do it a fourth time, then they block the offender.
  2. If someone does copy my concept, which they often do, and most likely will continue to do, I do not think that I will respond with the same frustration, whether or not I become an admin. I have come to realize, through talking with a friend, that the only thing that really matters is the self-accomplishment in anything I create. That is one thing I receive, no matter if the person attributes the borrowed idea or claims it as their own. I believe that all I need is to talk to this special individual because I know they understand.
  3. When someone lets me know they disagree with an action I did, I first like to get the bottom of their objection to see if I perhaps did something wrong. As Blue points out, no one (except Blue himself, and DT, Emoticon_silly.png) is perfect, and that mistakes can and will happen. I am always open to feedback, but I do find it rude when the person get accusatory and disrespectful towards me. Discussing it with them is best for me, because it gives me the best way to perceive their view point on the matter and allows me to see if and where I need to make adjustments.
  4. Wiki Mod and Admin are quite similar. I think some of the only things an Admin can do but a Wiki Mod cannot is protect pages, edit MediaWiki, or promote someone, but I know there are a couple more. If I become an Admin, there are two things I would especially like to use my tools for. The first is to have the Community Corner, on the Wiki Activity, remain updated with new information, and discussion or voting forum links. That simply keeps the community up to date. The second is that I would be able to help users with blog posts’ coding more easily. Users in Chat always send Private Messages to me about help regarding coding on their blogs, and it’s hard for me to do the coding in chat. I can merely explain how to do it or use a sandbox, but things can get lost if the person does not understand Source Mode, or something. Being able to edit the blog itself would be a great help for myself and the person asking for coding advice because I could act directly and make necessary changes quickly and effectively.
  5. As an admin, I would apply the age 13 rule as consistently as possible. It is not my choice whether or not I like a user, because they are violating a major Wikia Terms of Use rule. If I find out someone is underage, I block/ban them, but if they have been here for months and behaved, I talk to my fellow Admins and Wiki Mods in order to see what they thought was the best form of action, and will continue to do so.
