I agree with you that the people voting do seem to be fairly new. I counted 6 new people, and 3 people with a drastic low post count that are not new. Most of the (6) new people have a few edits and then post at the vote. I guess there will be more new accounts that are going to vote on that topic and imo it should be looked into.
I agree with Essiw in that it seems odd so many accounts were made on the 27th.. But I guess I can see where wikia would think it is an abuse of power to ask them to check nine accounts. I understand that some non-registered users might make accounts so they could vote, but I guess it just seems odd that so many people would make accounts just to vote for something, but haven't made any other edits since the vote.
I could ask them and explain the situation on this circumstance, but they may think we are trying to take advantage of the tool. It might be different if there was clear or some kind of proof or more concrete hints leading to the suspicions for them to check. They won't check just for the sake of checking. Also, if we ask this time what is stopping from asking on all other cases. I think right now we should wait and see what happens with the vote.
I agree that it is a little suspicious, but it doesn't seem like enough is evidence for a possible request.
I want to let you know that I removed your post from the Voting as the vote is for votes only. If you have concerns like these, please go to a staff member directly next time rather than posting them on a voting thread.
Thanks Frost for letting me know why I shouldn't have posted that where I did. I apologize for hindering you and the rest of the staff by putting that where I did. In the future I will refrain from posting concerns about votes on the voting page itself.
Hi, Argy. I removed the commentary you left that was not related to the topic at hand (Admin, Wiki Mod, Chat Mod changes).
I don't disagree that we can look at Rollback qualifications at some point. You would NOT believe the amount of work it takes to assess those, so I am all for finding something simpler! But, right now, we need to focus on these since we've stopped all nominations pending these updates. No one has requested rollback in quite a while, so I don't think we are really facing a big problem there.
If you want to create a sandbox to work on a draft of the change, that would be great. We can get that in front of the community in the next few weeks if it gets drafted.
That makes sense :) Thanks for letting me know, too! I would be glad to write up a draft for rollback rights updates over the next couple weeks. As soon as I have it done, I will get it to you! I agree that we should finish up with the other positions now though :)
haha I know right. I proposed it because this way, we can actually update multiple pages at the same time. I made templates for each elements, so when we update it, both pages will be changed. Unfortunately it didn't pass the prelims.
And I knoww you thought of that! lol, I still remember when you actually built the Uncommon Hybrids! I think you can develop more pages for le wiki :P ~
I like that idea because of the templates updating multiple pages, like you said... I also really like the look of the basic and hybrid element page :)
Lol, the day I made that I was so stressed because I was doing like two school assignments at the same time >_< I think I liked the result of the Uncommon Hybrids page when I constructed it over when I constructed the Opposite Hybrids page though :P
thanks Argy! I think maybe next time I will try and propose the idea again.
Wellll those major pages seem to ease the questions everyone keep asking about what Uncommon Dragons are, and why can't we breed opposite elements! ahaha I just hope those school assignments were still okayy despite time divides you had to make :P
OOPS I got my first day of exams tomorrow and look at what I'm doing Lolol :D ~
