Some stroopwafels for you![edit]

Gaufre biscuit.jpg Don't worry, I do get it. Stubs need sources too. I just went to the gym yesterday for a swim because of the heat. Thanks for your expansion of the Joseph Riegel article. In ictu oculi (talk) 08:08, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Re:WT:RfA[edit]

Hmm. Read your comments. I know RfA is in a better state now. But nowadays the trend for AfD participation is much higher than it was at that time during 2006-2007 when Moonriddengirl etc became admin. Why AfD is so needed?? When some of those 1407 admin haven't ever done administrative works in AfD or CSD areas. No editor is ever perfect, and voters just dig a very simple issue and make huge mountains of it when the editor is running for RfA. When I joined, I have dreamt that I will become an admin someday like Dennis, Drmies, you etc. But now the dream has become a nightmare. Jim Carter (from public cyber) 14:34, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

It's only a nightmare if you are not sufficiently prepared and if you have not spent hours reading up on all the advice - most of which I wrote and has become the staple reading diet for candidates. FWIW, if you,re scared to run for adminship, you should take a look at my own RfA. I still passed with flying colours despite the lies and abuse I got from some admin who has, thankfully, since been desysoped and the truly silly comments of some others. Once you get the bit you're going to need an even thicker skin, unless of course you want to work in the background just doing routine deletes of PRODS as many do. We need more admins like me and Dennis Brown and a tiny handful of others who are prepared to stick their necks out in contentious and controversial issues - someone has to do the dirty work, and if a user can.t face up to that kind of admin work, they are better staying in the nevertheless noble ranks of prolific content writers and FA reviewers, etc. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 15:02, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Hmm. I have read almost all of your essays, And yes they all were awesome, thanks for creating them. I have also been following your criteria for admins not because I want to become an admin someday but I think every user wanted to become a good contributor should follow those. I have seen both your and Dennis's RfA. Hmm. I know every successful RfA has some opposes except for Anne Delong's. If I ever become an admin I would like to help on such contentious areas. Thanks, Jim Carter (from public cyber) 15:27, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Being an admin doesn't make you a more valuable Wikipedian, nor a better editor or person. If anything, it guarantees you will have less time to just write. If you aren't prepared to spend a good deal of your time here being a punching bag, adminship isn't right for you. RFA is just the first taste for many candidates. Really, if you aren't prepared to get your nose bloodied from time to time, and be served up a slice of humble pie on a regular basis, it isn't for you. When it comes to adding value to Wikipedia, one good writer is worth more than 10 average admin, remember that. Dennis Brown |  | WER 15:34, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, you're correct Dennis. Becoming an admin is not something my aim was nor it is. I have a mixed interest I have created not many but 13+ articles, 3 DYKs, helped improve 1 article to meet GA. Have been a vandal fighter, quite active in AfD, Created templates etc. my contributions are not because I read essays of how to become an admin and have special interest of becoming an admin but want help built encyclopedia. You guys do a great job, Dennis, Kudpung. And really you both are precious diamonds of Wikipedia, salute you both. I think becoming a good editor is better than being an admin. But if in future someone ask me to run for adminship, I might say yes. But now I don't have interest nor I'm totally qualified yet. Anyway, I was in vacation. You know real life. Thanks again, both of you. Good day & Happy editing! Jim Carter (from public cyber) 16:12, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Precious diamonds, eh? Dunno about that; rough diamonds maybe, but thank you for the kind words :) Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 16:23, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
