Howdy folks, how's tricks? I'm Richie9999 and I'm asking for your support in running for the privilege of chat mod.
Who am I and why me?
Well let's see. I've been around for a while. I first started editing here with an account back in November of 2010 but I was an anon since the days of Fallout 3. As time went by after my first official edit my activity here waned until the day when I first saw the chat function. Since then I've been editing regularly as I chat, keeping one window open to the recent changes and another to chat conversing with the community. When the call came out for the creation of permanent chat moderators came out I applied with results that were less than favorable to say the least. At the time I lacked the maturity that was needed and saying that "I can be responsible" naturally, was not enough. I continued to remain present in chat for a time up until the spring of 2012 when life caught up with me. However now that I'm back, I'm here to stay.
Since my return in January, I've been made a patroller as well as increased my edit count 200% since as well as increasing my activity both in chat as well as on the editing side. Additionally I've been made temporary chat moderator five times additionally, 14 temporary chat mods have been appointed . And while I've admittedly never had to ban anyone during these times, I believe my presence there as a temporary moderator served as a form of pro-active moderating. Additionally, during these late times the number of chat moderators, moderators and admins has a steep drop off in presence. It is my belief that another chat mod is needed for late night presence in chat, and I believe I'm perfect for that. I'm available up until 2 AM EST 6 nights a week minimum, with being up until 4 AM EST most nights also a common occurrence.

I've created the following pages (Drunk and the Jefferson Memorial terminal entries being made since my return):
I have also:
- Gone through the Van Buren character pages checking for images for the characters' pages in the design documents while removing the image needed tag where no image existed and adding them when needed, during which I found two articles for the same character, two characters with images in the design documents but not on their page (which was soon added) as well as a page for a character that didn't actually exist in the design documents.
- Revamped the FNV character page.
- Aided Gunny in his infobox value project.
- Working with Gunny on updating Formspring links to webarchive versions.
Additionally, chat wise, I've been active in chat every day since my return forming bonds with the various people that frequent chat and becoming a veritable staple of the chat community.
Agent c here, with my first endorsement, which I'm pleased to be able to offer to Richie. He is one of our most effective patrollers, there are few days when I do not get tired of him giving me vandal IP addresses to block - every single one of them legitimate. Admittedly I have only seen the best of him, but he at this point clearly shows the right attitude, maturity and availabilty to be our next full moderator. Agent c (talk) 20:57, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

- Ghoullover666 (talk) 21:02, April 26, 2013 (UTC) I know you would work to make the Wasteland a better place. Hell, you defend the wikia against vandals. Now you'll be defending chat! --
- THE-HECK-OF-A-GUY (talk) Like I said, why not? Radio Nukapedia supports good chat mods.
- Fakaiyun (talk)I'm really new at wiki editing and Richie9999 has been extremely helpful and courteous every time.
- Sweet Jones (talk) 21:27, April 26, 2013 (UTC) Richie has been around for a long time and has made positive contributions to the wiki and it's community, so it's a yes for me.
- Skire (talk) 21:34, April 26, 2013 (UTC) Since your return I have no seen zero negatives. Highly endorsed. --
- "Semper Invictus" 21:40, April 26, 2013 (UTC) If there were no's, I'd make a huge monologue about how awesome you are for this job, you and I usually taking temporary mod positions as a sort of contest between us nowadays, but it looks like you'll ultimately win. Good luck with the new job, Richie, you'll do great.
- BILLYOCEAN Wanna talk? 23:09, April 26, 2013 (UTC) Richie is very dedicated and trustworthy. English please and no spamming/racist comments.
