Ryan Schmidt[edit]

Ryan's now a sysop. Congratulations! --DrBob (Talk) 11:47, 6 March 2007 (CST)

(5/0/2) Ryan Schmidt (talk · contribs) - - Ryan has been quite active since last November and participates in the community portal and staff lounge discussions. I believe the wiki would benefit from him being able to deal with deletion/block/rollback directly.

Candidate, please indicate acceptance of the nomination here:

I would love to be a sysop, and I believe I can help out even more with the extra little buttons on my tab strip.

Questions for the candidate

Dear candidate, thank you for offering to serve StrategyWiki in this capacity. Please take the time to answer a few generic questions to provide guidance for participants:

1. What sysop chores do you anticipate helping with?
A: I anticipate helping with cleanup, welcoming newcomers (I know that really isn't a sysop chore, but it mostly falls on them), deleting articles tagged with {{delete}}, helping people in the Staff Lounge, and whatever else anybody asks me to do (within reason).
2. Of your articles or contributions to StrategyWiki, are there any with which you are particularly pleased, and why?
A: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. I feel that I really did a nice job with the formatting of the walkthrough (it really needs pictures, though). I am also proud of helping out on the Guide because it helps people learn how to do things like formatting and linking.
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: If "conflicts over editing" means edit conflicts (where another user saved a page you were working on while you were still working on it), I've had plenty of those, but if it means me disagreeing with the way somebody else does things, I've never had a problem with that. Currently, no user has yet caused me stress, and if I have an idea to improve something someone else wrote, I leave a message in their talk page telling them of the idea.

  • If you want to know more about a candidate for adminship, even if you haven't personally had much interaction with them, you can get a lot out of taking a look at their contributions. His main space ones, as well as his ones in the discussion namespaces. -- Mason11987 (Talk - Contributions) 21:55, 3 March 2007 (CST)
  • I believe he is a good candidate due to his effort and desire to become an Admin and his contributions to games have been top notch so far. On a side note, I would like to see him respond more within the Community Portal. --Notmyhandle 19:46, 4 March 2007 (CST)

  4. echelon (talk · contribs) - You're a hard worker, Ryan. I love how you helped on our OoT guide (the one I feel I worked the hardest on myself), so I like what you're doing and I definitely feel you're cut out for more responsibility.
