Forums: Index > Wiki proposals and applications > Bureaucrat request - Sakaratte

This is something I think people have suspected was coming for a while, but I have put it off until I had Exodus in a somewhat presentable state. I am now running for bureaucrat.

So why run?Edit

I started editing fully here in Jan 2017 (although I held an account since 2016) and became a patroller, then an Admin by mid year. From there I moved over to discussions and started working on unifying discussions with the rest of the wiki. They're nice little benchmarks, but not really reasons to run.

The reason I am running is to align Exodus as a second platform (as the primary keyholder) with the prime wiki and to allow the continuation of maintaining a full backup . Regardless of if we do ever make a jump to the backup, we hold other projects where rights should align to the wiki, such as Simtek. Also I hold CheckUser, a powerful tool that has until now been held by the Bureaucrats.

As a whole, my primary focus has been on what is best for the wiki and its users, be it abuse filters, offsite tools (dialogue extractor), changes in policy (e.g Creation Club). My personal feelings come second to practicality where policy is concerned. Sakaratte - Talk to the catmin 09:47, March 4, 2018 (UTC)


As with my admin request although not required, I do have an endorsement from Agent c:

Saka has been a great boon to the wiki ever since he first joined us, as evidenced by the trust you've put into him through his rapid rise through the ranks. Although we hope never to actually need it, the entire exodus project would simply have been impossible without him - now if we needed to we know we can move the wiki away, and have options to do things we never thought we could. We know he can be trusted with the crat toolkit because he has been given it on a temporary basis before to achieve certain tasks. He is the leader this wiki needs, and deserves I without question endorse him for Crat, and can only criticise him for not running sooner

  1. Icon check Without a shadow of doubt in my mind. UrbanAnge1 (talk)
  2. Icon check You have my vote Mr. Bureaucat. Bloodworm (talk)
  3. Icon check its about time...Overseer X (talk) 09:49, March 4, 2018 (UTC)
  4. Icon check I am not the most active wiki user, however in what I've done more recently, and on the Discord, I've found Saka to be fair, extremely patient, reasonable, and open to suggestions/critique. These are all traits that mirror the other Bureaucrats I've had dealings with, so I wholeheartedly endorse this request. Shaka1277 (talk) 10:21, March 4, 2018 (UTC)
  5. Icon check I am certain that saka would make an exceptional bureaucrat. He has shown that he is extremely fair, patient, etc, something that a bureaucrat should be. He fits that excellently. You're in my sights...SilentWraith_291 {♤Niner Ace of Spades♤} (talk)
  6. Icon check Not sure if we can trust a cat to run the show. What if he starts peeing on the servers to show it's his territory? Brb, I'm off to buy some extra cat spray. - FDekker talk
  7. Icon check”saka is worthy of being a bureaucrat or should I say bureaucat it was only a matter of time before someone used that pun don’t deny it people anyway he is worthy and I give my full support in a cat president and the cat political party all hail our cat overlords”-user:Andirianbobh
  8. Icon check He blocked me once... Hell, he's got my indorsement. I mean, if I had a little bit*tch coming in to my wiki starting trouble, ban them into next tuesday! Also i like the idea of a fellow person with autism to be given such control. I personally find it hard sometimes to garner respect from people and hold their attention, so I find this inspirational. Good luck! Reggie Fils Aime 2 (talk)
  9. Icon check NCR Ranger Alex (talk) He's capable, responsible and open to dialogue. I have been here for 2 years and I can say he knows how to deal with everything that comes in his way, including trolls. Most would lose their mind, but he's calm and knows how to run the show and enforce the rules when he has to. We couldn't find a better candidate :) (is it professional to put a smile on votes? Doesn't matter, I am doing it)
  10. Icon check I’ve never heard of you / we have too many mods (delete as appropriate) Agent c (talk) 12:34, March 4, 2018 (UTC)
  11. Icon check There is no one more deserving than you. Since you've arrived nearly every aspect of the wiki has improved by leaps and bounds. Pedro Washington (talk) 13:31, March 4, 2018 (UTC)

  15. Icon check I better get some Timbits once you're Crat. Yodamort (talk) 15:38, March 4, 2018 (UTC)
  16. Icon check Nope, sorry, too corrupt. Of course I think you’re perfect for this, you already do so much around here.TheLaatSurvivor (talk)
  17. Icon check Next to Agent c, you're the man best in touch with the general community these days, chat, discussions and article-wise. An allround knowledgable and responsible person, fit for the job. You have my support, good luck! Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:43, March 4, 2018 (UTC)
  18. Icon check Need anyone say more? I'd vote for Sakaratte no matter how high the rank. Bureaucrat included, of course. I'll grant my full endorsement for sure. |\| () |\/| /\ |) | Talk | Discord | NMC 16:57, March 4, 2018 (UTC)
  19. Icon check Saka came to the discussions in a time of need. He's also taken the responsibility of guarding my home away from home as ive been dealing with my personal life and mental health. To me, this vote is just a formality. Clearly, I don't need to really even voice my opinion. But, I need to show my respect for him by voting and saying some nice things. Haha!

  20. Icon check Saka is not only an extremely mature and dedicated member of this wikia, but is also always willing to lend a hand to anyone. I can’t think of many other people as deserving of this post as Sakaratte.Skysteam (talk) 17:28, March 4, 2018 (UTC)
  21. Icon check Saka has probably been the most dedicated, well rounded user on the wiki for a while now. He is the most active /d moderator, especially lately since I have been extremely busy. He is always one of the top editors every week. And he's probably one of the most active chat users and moderators. Much deserved.

  22. Icon check It’s my first time but I just want to say that I’m glad you are becoming the highest of reachable stages in this forum. I wish you the most of luck, and when I get the requirements for Mod, can you please like recommend me or something. But I’m very happy that you are getting an upgrade! —Preceding unsigned comment added by XxKingSwiflyxX (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
  23. Icon check In my limited time on the wiki I've seen great things from Sakaratte on the mainspace, Discussions, and the Discord server. He's an excellent editor and role model in general, and I'm sure he would be a fantastic bureaucrat. —Atvelonis (talk) 18:24, March 4, 2018 (UTC)

  27. Icon check Sakaratte, from what I have seen in my time on the Wiki and Discord, you have come across as a great Wikian and a good person overall. I have no doubt that you will be an excellent bureaucrat and bring great changes to the table. I bid you good luck with the remainder of the voting, and wish you well in your future endeavors here.

  29. Icon check I suppose so if there's no one else...;P Seriously though, I couldn't think of a more worthy canidate. I'm not knocking any editor because we are all the backbone of this wiki, but Sak has done more in the last year and change than anyone else I know of, and a lot of things on here now would have not been possible without him.StormRider71 (talk) 13:39, March 5, 2018 (UTC)
