Celestianpower is an admin[edit]

Thank you very much for your support - my bid (as you probably know) went swimmingly. I couldn't have asked for a better one. Thank you very much and I just hope I don't mess up! You're one of the best Wikipedians around and when you run, I'm sure you'll get a record! --Celestianpower hablamé 12:30, 16 October 2005 (UTC)

My RfA[edit]


Hi BD2412! Just wanted to thank you for supporting my RfA. I hope I will be able to live up to the confidence placed in me. --Cyberjunkie | Talk 05:24, 19 October 2005 (UTC)


Break? Ok, who are you trying to kid? :-) Looking at your edits from September 18 forward, you've consistently averaged >150 edits per day, and that average has only slightly slipped since the beginning of your supposed break. You've repeatedly denied people's requests to nominate you, yet would probably score a record vote if you were nominated. I understand and respect your desire to wait until December to be nominated, but I wonder what waiting until then will produce that is not already present now? I think you should allow a nomination to move forward. I don't really care who does it, I just think Wikipedia deserves having you as an admin, and the sooner the better. If you want me to nominate you, I'd be honored to do so. Even though I know you'll clear with flying colors, I'll still evaluate you against my standards to nominate. --Durin 20:12, 20 October 2005 (UTC)

  • I've adjusted my Wikibreak header to reflect reality. :-) With respect to adminship, there are other things outside of Wikipedia that I'm waiting to hear about which will also come around the beginning of December, so the timing works out for me on several levels. Besides, I am very happy with various projects here that fill my time adequately, and only rarely have been faced with a situation where admin powers would have been particularly helpful. I do deeply appreciate the thought, but I'll hold any decision for the next 42 days (which, trust me, will pass by in the blink of an eye).  BD2412 talk 20:53, 20 October 2005 (UTC)
  • 42 days, we'll have the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything then I suppose :) Fair enough, and I like the change in your header :) --Durin 21:53, 20 October 2005 (UTC)

Admin Nom for Alabamaboy[edit]

I have posted my attempted template on his page. Sorry if I did not follow procedures, but my God, you guys make it difficult to try to give someone a thumbs up. Lemme know if I'll need to vote again, or will this register? Thanks, Iago Dali 21:59, 22 October 2005 (UTC)

Admin Nom[edit]

I have tried to nominate you, but apparently before I can put a nom on the main page this admin says that you need to accept before I can put in on the nom page. I will crosspost this to his page. If for no other reason, accept this nomination for all the effort I've gone thru to try and make a nom with these non-user-friendly templates. Let me know if I need to vote again. Iago Dali 21:56, 22 October 2005 (UTC)

  • Thanks for helping Iago Dali out and for giving me info on what to do about the admin nom. Best, --Alabamaboy 02:17, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

Not an admin?[edit]

You're not an admin? Why on earth not? Ëvilphoenix 01:23, 24 October 2005 (UTC)

  • For various reasons, I have chosen to wait until December to consider the option. Time flies!  BD2412 talk 01:28, 24 October 2005 (UTC)

the wub's RfA[edit]

Thanks a lot for your support on my RfA, I really appreciate it. Like Flcelloguy, I hope everything's okay over there with you. the wub "?!" 13:01, 25 October 2005 (UTC)

Titoxd's RfA[edit]

Thank you!

Thank you for supporting me in my RfA. I never thought I would get so much support! Thanks to your help, my nomination was the 10th most supported RfA in Wikipedia history. Now, please keep an eye out on me while I learn the new tools, ok? Thanks again! Titoxd(?!?) 17:08, 25 October 2005 (UTC)

I third The wub's and Flcelloguy's comments. Hope the hurricane didn't cause much harm over there. Titoxd(?!?) 17:10, 25 October 2005 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

"A good egg"

Thank you so much for voting in my RfA, and especially thank you for supporting me. I really appreciate it, and will wield the mop and bucket the best way I know how. I, like RoboCop, promise four things:

  1. Serve the public trust
  2. Protect the innocent
  3. Uphold the law
  4. Classified

I hope to do all those things and, even if I can't keep my fourth classified, will do all I can to be a great admin. Stop by my talk page, or on article pages; I look forward to working with you. Thanks again, [[User:Mysekurity|Mysekurity]] [[additions | e-mail]] 01:18, 7 November 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for supporting my RfA[edit]

I know I've been slow in saying this, but thanks for supporting my request for adminship. It was an honor to be both nominated and approved as an admin. If there is ever any adminish (is that a word :-) things you need help with, please let me know. --Alabamaboy 16:28, 8 November 2005 (UTC)


BD2412, I very humbly accept your offer to nominate me for adminship. I have been here for just under a year and I feel I'm ready to step up. Cheers -- Ianblair23 (talk) 21:21, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

Excellent, thank you vey much -- Ianblair23 (talk) 21:45, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
Ok BD2412, I have accepted the nomination, answered the questions and posted my nomination. Thank you once again for nominating me and let the voting begin!! :) -- Ianblair23 (talk) 00:56, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

Psy guy's RfA[edit]

Thanks for supporting my RfA. It recently closed with final tally of 51/1/2. I sincerely appreciate it and I hope I can live up to your expectations. I will try my best to be a good administrator. If you ever need anything, just let me know. Thanks! -- Psy guy (talk) 05:41, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for your support on my request for bureaucratship.

The final outcome was (17/17/4) meaning that it failed, if you have any advice on how I can be a better editor or administrator please don't hesitate to leave a message on my talk page. Thanks again for your support. Jtkiefer T | @ | C ----- 20:27, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi BD2412,

Thank you very much for your support on my RfA. I was both surprised and delighted about the amount of support votes and all the kind words! If I can ever help with anything or if you have any comments about my actions as an admin, please let me know! Regards, JoanneB 14:01, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

GraemeL's RFA[edit]


Hi BD2412,

I am now an administrator and would like to thank you for your support and kind words on my RfA. I was very surprised at the number of votes and amount of and kind comments that I gathered. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I mess up in the use of my new powers. --GraemeL (talk) 15:15, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

MONGO RfA[edit]

I appreciate your support on my RfA and will do my best to not let you down. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you!--MONGO 04:12, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

RFA question[edit]

I nominated Mushroom for adminship, and you moved his RFA acording to the RFA procedure, right? Well, if mushroom doesn't approve of his RFA within 7 days will it be deleted and not be put in the offical votings?-VenomousNinja 17:48, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Hello BD2412, thank you for your kind words on my request for adminship page and for taking care of the nomination process. I have decided to accept the nomination. Mushroom 18:36, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

RfA thanks[edit]

I'd like to thank you for being the first editor to support my RfA. As I wrote, I was looking forward to feedback from the community, and I would like to let you know that you should please feel free to leave any further feedback for me you may have for me in the future at my Talk page. Thanks again. Jkelly 08:27, 25 November 2005 (UTC)


I'm also here to express thanks for your support on my RfA. Like JKelly above, any and all feedback is welcome, Hiding talk 09:56, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

Sean Black RfA[edit]

Thank you very much for your support of my RfA. Thanks, in part, to you, I am now an Administrator, and I pledge to use my newfound powers for good rather than evil. Thanks again!--Sean|Black 07:16, 26 November 2005 (UTC)

Thank you for your support[edit]

Hi, I just want to thank you very much for supporting my RfA, and to say also that I hope I'll make a good job of it. I'm supposed to be working on an assignment at the moment, and had been reducing my Wikipedia activity, so delayed thanking people, but I'm finding the new rollback button so easy to use that I'm just keeping Wikipedia open on my browser while working on other things, and I thought I'd like to thank at least a few of those who supported me while I'm here. Cheers. AnnH (talk) 22:40, 26 November 2005 (UTC)

Thanx alot.[edit]

Thanks alot for reminding me about my Rfa ending date. I forgot to change it. I would very much appreatiate your support, Here is my My nomination.

Thanks again.--Aytakin 03:36, 27 November 2005 (UTC)


Having decided that thank you notes were in order, let me thank you BD! I have nothing but respect for you, as an editor and contributor to WP. I still remember you quoteing (I think Thomas Paine), when at one of the debates we've both participated in, you wrote "I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it". I agreed with you then, and want you to know, that within the boundries of citable sources and civility, that both sides of an arguement should get an equal and balanced opportunity to, ahem, air their beefs... So, if this thing goes through, I'll be careful not to overstep or abuse my vested powers, promise. Hamster Sandwich 03:59, 29 November 2005 (UTC)


Um... BD2412, I nominated you for adminship, I hope you don't mind (see Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/BD2412). Izehar 00:05, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

Any guidelines you may need are at the bottom of Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/nominate Izehar 00:07, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

  • Thank you. I had, for various reasons, vowed not to consider an adminship until December, so you're a day early - I'll need a day or two to put together my responses in any event, so I suppose this works out. I should give you fair warning that you'll probably draw the ire (tho lighthearted ire) of a half-dozen or so folks who had vowed to nominate me around this time tomorrow. I shall do my best to avoid raising consternation through this process! Thanks again. BD2412 T 00:12, 30 November 2005 (UTC)
    • Well then, the next little adventure will be to see how much support racks up on your nom before you get around to accepting it. Dragons flight 01:19, 30 November 2005 (UTC)
      • BDA? You gonna accept the nomination or not? TomerTALK 04:58, 30 November 2005 (UTC)
        • Better late than never respose - done. BD2412 T 16:46, 1 December 2005 (UTC)


Hardly a dispute, in fact I actally thought at first it was a user's comment, and that's why I wanted it removed. Good luck.

Prodego 17:27, 30 November 2005 (UTC)


"With gratitude to Izehar - and everyone else who has offered - I accept this nomination, and hope for the approval of my peers. BD2412 T 00:0 7, 1 December 2005 (UTC)"

Well you were 6min too slow.......

I was wondering, why did you want to wait till December? Did you just want to be elected in the biggest landslide ever?! ;)

Prodegotalk 03:20, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

  • I was caught in traffic. Also, to be honest, I was waiting to hear from my firm whether they were going to hire me on a permanent basis (they did so last week) so I need no longer worry about where I'm going to work/live. I realize I still have a lot to learn, but then, I always will - the journey is the destination. BD2412 T 03:25, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
    • Good for you!, but good news comes with bad *sigh*
      • Wow... yeah, that's not good. BD2412 T 03:35, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

Your RfA[edit]

To be moved later into the RfA archive...

BD2412... I fully support you in your bid for Admin. However, You don't seem to need my support, and since RfA is about the discussion, and not the votes, I will abstain from actually voting. I know this makes me a dick, but just know you have my support. A true Admin does not need his or her adminship validated by one lowly editors vote, and I'm sure you'll feel disappointed, but understand. Cheers. --LV (Dark Mark) 20:58, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

Thank you for understanding. I have no doubt you'll be spectacular as an Admin. See you around, my friend. --LV (Dark Mark) 21:16, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
It is done. Titoxd(?!? - did you read this?) 07:52, 3 December 2005 (UTC)


A Place To Store All Your Votes

Here you go. I think you could run for bureaucrat now, let alone admin. karmafist 21:58, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

  • Congratsulations! Good luck with your powers, and wow...I can't believe you weren't one from! -Mysekurity (have you seen this?) 02:11, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Hi BD2412,

I would like to thank you for your kind support on my RfA. I'll do my best to be a good administrator (by the way, you will certainly be a great admin!). If you need anything, or if I ever do something wrong with my new powers, please contact me. Mushroom 16:40, 2 December 2005 (UTC)


Yes, that was my intent. :) --Phroziac . o º O (mmmmm chocolate!) 21:29, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

RFA for TheParanoidOne[edit]

Hello BD2412. Thanks for the vote of confidence in my RFA. Now that I have officially received the badge, I shall try my best to be a good administrator. I would wish you luck in your RFA as well, but clearly you don't need it. :) --TheParanoidOne 18:56, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

Mindmatrix scam adminship[edit]

I have recently been granted greater access to your systems, and can begin the process of salvaging the sensitive information from my politically unstable land, as I promised.

Thanks so very much for supporting my Request for Admin. The final result was 38/0/0.

Concord grape plant.jpg

Thanks for voting to support my RfA. I wasn't expecting an unopposed promotion (I thought I'd hit some die-hard edit-counters at least) and I'm touched by the trust shown in me. I'll try my best to continue to earn that trust. But first, I'll have to work on not sounding like a politician; that last sentence was awful. Oh well. Let me know when I screw something up with the shiny new buttons. —Bunchofgrapes (talk) 05:27, 3 December 2005 (UTC)

RfA thanks[edit]

Nice to see you around again - I remember working with you on some contracts articles! I would like to thank you for your support of my recent successful RfA. If you have any further comments or feedback for me, my door's open - don't hesistate to drop a note on my talk page. Happy editing! Enochlau 11:08, 3 December 2005 (UTC)


I see that is becoming serious, day after day! -- Svest 01:26, 4 December 2005 (UTC)  Wiki me up&#153;


Many thanks for the vote on RfA. It is a great honour to get a vote from one so great in Wikipedia. --File Éireann 21:41, 5 December 2005 (UTC)
