You've been nominated in the upcoming moderator elections. See the nomination at RationalWiki:Moderator elections/Nominations. Talking to myself... must be nuts... oh well — Dysk (contribs) 03:20, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
You may recall…
Adolfus James: But your honor, I didn't.
Hi there, I see that you are on the list of OpenSTV ballot readers for the 2020 mod election. I've received the results from David, have run them through the process, and am getting ready to post them. Would you like me to send you the raw results file so you can verify my calculations? —cosmikdebris talk stalk 01:19, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
- You are new here, let me explain how this works. RationalWiki has as of time of writing, one thousand one hundred and twelve sysops. The role of a sysop on RationalWiki, unlike other wiki projects, is that of a 'trusted' user. The Staff, Moderators, and Techs are between themselves a closer analogue of the Administrators or 'Sysops' on other wiki projects. The majority of Sysops on RationalWiki are trolls, sockpuppets, and friends of editors; multiple banned users maintain known sockpuppet accounts with Sysop rights, that cannot be blocked merely as convincing evidence is lacking. It's tradition to Sysop new users as soon as feasible, with the only barrier, the partial responsibility you take over those who you give the right. If for any reason a Sysop goes insane, there is no damage that cannot be undone within a few moments. In short, your concern is misplaced. Judge Dredd (talk) 02:19, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
