Whitemonkey (talk • contribs) – I have recently become an active flag editor and would like to become more active in the wider wikki community. I feel that the best way to do this would be to apply for adminship. I feel as though I have grasped the major functions of wiki editing, and hope that my in-game experience and my experience in wiki editing will benefit the YPP community better.

Candidate, please indicate acceptance of the nomination here: I accept the nomination from myself

  2. I don't see anything glaringly wrong with the user, but I'd like to see some substantial contributions to pages other than his pirate and crew/flag/friends' pages before I support an administrator nomination. --Ponytailguy 18:25, 24 October 2006 (PDT)
  3. Lack of edits and few substantial contributions to pages other than pirate, crew and flag pages. But, off to a good start. --Angelbeaver (talk) 08:05, 25 October 2006 (PDT)
  4. I shall gracefully withdraw my RfA for the time being. I realise that my few edits before my candidacy was probably rather inept of me as I still have much to learn. I will of course continue to help with editing and adding new content over the coming weeks and months and I do hope that you will all keep me in mind in the future! Thank you for all your comments and I shall try to take them on board. --Whitemonkey 05:24, 30 October 2006 (PST)



  • Whitemonkey has only been actively editing for a month and including User page & this nomination page has only 100 edits. As such he does not meet my personal standards for adminship. --Guppymomma 18:13, 24 October 2006 (PDT)
  • I haven't been actively editing enough to form a voting opinion here, but I have two main issues with this candidate: 1) there are no edits to the YPPedia: namespace, excepting this nomination; and 2) I'm not confident enough in his in-game behavior to support a nomination.

Questions for the candidate
A few generic questions to provide guidance for voters:

1. What sysop chores, if any, would you anticipate helping with? (Please read the page about administrators and the administrators' reading list.)
I am more than willing to help with any of the sysop chores, from helping with cleanup to helping individual wiki writers with their own pages.
2. Of your articles or contributions to YPPedia, are there any about which you are particularly pleased, and why?
I personally like my pirate page as it shows all the information anyone could need to know about me without being cluttered or irrelevant (to a certain extent!).
