Questions for the candidate[edit]

Dear candidate, thank you for offering to serve Wikipedia as an administrator. Please answer these questions to provide guidance for participants:

1. What administrative work do you intend to take part in?
A: summarily choosing who lives and who dies, who gets my mighty banhammer and who I allow to remain to serve me.
2. What are your best contributions to Wikipedia, and why?
A: I created it. What kind of stupid question is that?
3. Have you been in any conflicts over editing in the past or have other users caused you stress? How have you dealt with it and how will you deal with it in the future?
A: See question 1.

General comments[edit]

Please keep discussion constructive and civil. If you are unfamiliar with the nominee, please thoroughly review their contributions before commenting.


  • Can I just point out one minor thing. Jimbo hasn't notified his acceptance of this proposal for him to take this position anyway. The C of E. God Save The Queen! (talk) 16:15, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
  1. Support. I thought he already was those things? darwinbish BITE 14:15, 1 April 2012 (UTC).
  2. Support In favor of declaring us all Supreme Overlords of Wikipedia. Also in favor of dramatic capes, minions, and evil-overlord laughter. Cloveapple (talk) 16:59, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
  3. Support Jimbo for admin and for President of the United States. PCHS-NJROTC (Messages) 17:45, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
  4. Support because I'm too afraid to oppose with that whole "deciding who lives and dies" thing... I mean, he'd make a great Overlord! Heh heh, hehe. Heh. - Purplewowies (talk) 19:15, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
  5. Support - I was requested to vote here by a Supreme Overlord; however, this one isn't divine (yet). CycloneGU (talk) 20:28, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
  1. Oppose: I consulted with one of my partners in wikipedia and he decided that I should give his opinion on this which is, Computer says no. The C of E. God Save The Queen! (talk) 07:31, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
