Welcome to your mother's basement! Here you can ask for autopatrolled, sysop rights, ninja rights, or tech rights.

Please include your reason for requesting the rights. For example, if requesting sysop rights, one could say: "I've been here for bloody ages and you fuckers forgot to give me sysop".

Please also {{ping|user's name}} a mod or tech -- otherwise, nobody will respond.

Sysop for --san/Mike V (approved)

@LeftyGreenMario I've been here for a bit, can i have sysop? I want some SysopCandy™ Sincerely, --san (talk | contributions) 04:05, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

@--san Ping doesn't work if you don't use the tildes. Anyhow, I've seen only a bit of reverts and not much else. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 18:43, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
@--san Have fun with the mop! --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 06:28, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

Ninja: GrammarCommie (approved)

I will likely begin edit binges in the near future wherein I bring old articles up to modern formatting standards and would like to avoid clogging up the the recent changes log. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 14:17, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

Done. Bongolian (talk) 17:21, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
@Bongolian Thank you. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 19:45, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

Ninja:Readymade (Withdrawn)

I've discovered there's a repetitive job that needs doing, which will flood recent changes all evening-adding Category:Talk pages for deleted articles to shedloads of articles that failed the AfD. I'd write a bot but I never past Hello World I'm afraid. @DiamondDisc1 WilderBicycle 16:21, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

@Readymade It's "passed" not "past". ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 16:23, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
I was aiming for "got past." Do I get extra marks for being wrong in two different ways? WilderBicycle 16:27, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
If you're not technically skilled, it's best not to venture into writing a bot. What Ninja can do for you however is allow you to turn your "Bot" permission on, then manually make the repetitive changes that you want to make, then turn your Bot permission off and go back to normal editing. Bongolian (talk) 19:31, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
What? i just said i wasn't writing a bot because I'm not technically skilled. WilderBicycle 19:43, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
I didn't understand your sentence: poor grammar. Bongolian (talk) 19:52, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
OK fuck it, do the fucking job yourselves. WilderBicycle 19:58, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
Huh? ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 20:22, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
@Readymade Make the bot first, then ask for ninja. :)-DιαμοπdDιςc1(talk) 05:40, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

Sysop: K0rnsbl0d (Done)

Been making a bunch of edits to clean up the wiki, so have I earned my way to sysop? I'm here to be cleanup crew and show you how it's done. K0rnsbl0dLet the galaxy burn!"Kill!Maim!Burn!" 20:14, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

@K0rnsbl0d Done. Cruise Control Manual! 22:40, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

Sysop: Right-wing RationalWiki (Withdrawn)

I've been her for a year and I haven't destroyed anything. Contrary to popular belief I'm not actually plotting to block all the liberals here, just most of them . --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 14:48, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

I think we've done this before, with rather predictable results. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 14:56, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
"Even those who oppose mainstream RW ideas are — and should be — given sysop, as we encourage constructive dialogue", - RationalWiki Sysop policy page. --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 15:16, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
Given that, by your own admission you only want SysOp privileges so you can stage a Coup d'état against anyone who dosen't toe your line in the sand and kiss your ass, I think we can safely rule out constructive dialog as a motive for your request. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 15:21, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
1 single Sysop could never pull off a Coup, and I wouldn't be foolish enough to try it since it. --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 15:31, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
Not only is it possible, but it's disturbingly easy to pull off. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 15:33, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
Then you have my word that I won't attempt it. Besides its well known that I wish to take control of this Wiki through democratic means, i.e the next moderator elections. I have no interest in becoming a dictator or tyrant. --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 15:36, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
@GrammarCommie: I'm inclined to agree with RWRW. One sysop can't overthrow everyone else, especially given the fact that sysops can't take away mod and tech rights, and that most users have a spare sock lying around. Remember how well FAMAS's coup went? That's what happens when one sysop steps out of line. I say he should be demoted. RoninMacbeth (talk) 16:16, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
Off-topic, but do most users really have a spare sock lying around!? :O}0 --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 18:27, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
@LeftyGreenMario I may or may not have a spare sock lying around somewhere. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 18:48, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
Oh, well, I do have a meat puppet, being my sister BabyLuigiOnFire. *wink* --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 19:15, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

Yes

  1. Has earned my...well, I wouldn't say trust, but he has at least demonstrated that he's not going to burn the wiki to the ground overnight. RoninMacbeth (talk) 17:54, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
  2. But only if he changes his name. Ariel31459 (talk) 02:54, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
  3. If they start blocking everyone immediately, lose it. But otherwise, what's the harm? They've already been given autopatrolled, so it wouldn't make anything harder to spot. —Kazitor, pending 05:57, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
    For the record, I don't agree with the auto-patrolled either. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 19:25, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
    So the request has been withdrawn and the discussion should be over, yet you seem to want to kick someone (me) while their down? Charming. --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 19:45, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
    It's no surprise, @Right-wing RationalWiki, that you're thin-skinnned just like your hero. Give this up and move on: either make some sane edits or leave. You're not doing yourself any favors. Bongolian (talk) 19:59, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
    I have been making sane edits, yet you all used your personal dislike for me to discredit me and sabotage my user rights request. Besides I tried to 'move on' but people like you and LeftyGreenMario keep opening old wounds. --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 20:03, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
    Also of note, RWRW's tantrum indicates he's either trolling or doesn't understand how RW works (despite being here for a year). RW is a mobocracy, not a democracy. Any Sysop can make someone else a Sysop unless they've been previously permabanned, but it's generally up to do mob to override such decisions when they turn out to be excessively disruptive (the Chicken Coop). Bongolian (talk) 19:40, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

# For my reasons that are stated above (if I am indeed allowed to vote for myself). --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 18:53, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

No

  1. I don't know what this account is for, it smells like a parody account who likes to draw attention to himself and the users generally play along. I don't generally think parody accounts should get powers, and if the owner of the parody account wants power, then I think he should just create a serious one. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 18:25, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
  2. I don't trust RWRW, as if that wasn't obvious enough. Part of that distrust stems from the fact that RWRW has repeatedly expressed a desire to turn RantionWiki into a Conservapedia clone, and part from certain edits that look suspiciously like trolling. If I had made Tankie style edits defending Stalin when I first signed up, even in jest, it is highly unlikely that I would have been viewed favorably. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 18:46, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
    Out of curiosity, what exactly do you naysayers think will happen if I get Sysop rights? --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 18:53, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
    Not much because anything bad you do is easily fixed. I just doubt that you deserve or need sysop rights though. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 19:08, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
    Then if you acknowledge that I won't cause any lasting damage, surely that means your opposes are based off personal dislikes for me rather than what's best for the wiki. --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 19:21, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
    Don't misrepresent my arguments and don't call me Shirley. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 19:25, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
  3. He's obviously a parodist and, personally, I don't find the joke of people pretending to have political opinions very different from their own funny anymore. It may have been how Stephen Colbert built an entire career but online it just makes you look like a troll. What I don't want to do now is set a precedent for giving sysop rights to someone who has said that their sole purpose here is to cause trouble. The next user that says that might be the new F.A. who really means it. I think RWRW has been like The Boy Who Cried Wolf and only has himself to blame for people not trusting him. He is, however, obviously capable of making some good quality edits to articles. My advice to him would be to ditch the Right-wing RationalWiki persona and start again with a new account. Then he could be made a sysop in a few days, like nearly everyone else. Spud (talk) 01:06, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
  4. Well put, Spud. Bongolian (talk) 01:39, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
  5. Per Spud. Сприггина (говорить) (взносы) @ 01:44, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
  6. Hell no.—€h33s3βurg3rF@€3 Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 03:49, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

Goat

  1. I'm of mixed minds on this. RWRW has a point regarding Sysop policy, but RWRW has also not been autopatrolled after 1 year: so much for the coup possibilities. Where are his socks rising to his defence? On the other hand, RWRW's edits are rather narrow. Troll potential is high, and if RWRW is not a troll, they don't know the difference between authoritarianism and conservativism. Bongolian (talk) 18:18, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
  2. I just got back from vacation and decided to check this out, personally I feel mixed about this. I understand the Sysop policy but always had a suspicion against those who request for the position unless they have some valid reasons. While I was made Sysop though I never requested it officially (I'm actually surprised that Christopher actually made me one just because I had the "I would like to be a Sysop" on my userbox) I have behaved myself and made sure not to deal with anything I had no idea about (though I have been given some advice on how to handle some stuff, thx guys.) So I'm on the fence with this. Untill I hear a valid reason I wont say yes or no.King RimuruRimuru Slime.png 02:10, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
