Welp, EmpyrealInvective here. (Emp for short or Travis if you're feeling personable) I told myself I was going to wait 'til July to petition for Admin rights, but someone decided to give me a friendly little kick in the ass so I'm going to be throwing my hat into the ring a little earlier than expected.
A little about me: I'm a fan of writing and I have thirty or so stories, a number of which I wrote up while in Nicaragua for the Peace Corps, posted on this site (Even a couple of good ones if you're willing to wade through them.), I helped to reduce the M4R category to something much more manageable, I translated a number of the Altlang stories into english, I helped categorize the uncategorized pages or uncat / schrodingers as I insist on calling them much to everyone's chagrin. My next task will be trying to get the "home invasion" category established and knocking the 2000+ entries in the mental illness category down a little.
Onto the requirements for admin:
Must be active on the site for six months: I signed up officially Oct. 27th 2013 so I have six-seven months under my belt here. I wanted to wait until I was VCROC(K) for three months before applying, but as mentioned before, I am susceptible to fires being lit under me/ kicks in the ass.
Must have 800 edits, 600 on articles: I have 1792 edits, 1125 on articles themselves.
Must know how to categorize pages: I have published most of my stories and added them to the correct categories. I have also done edits on the uncategorized stories and placed them in the appropriate categories.
Must know how to move files/pages: Once determining the page is improperly titled, por ejemplo: "I have no mouth and I must scream" I would click the rename button and properly title the story (I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream)
Must know how to delete pages: As a VCROC(K) I have deleted a couple of pages that were not up to quality standards, were incomplete/unfinished, or were spam pages. (In Monobook) I would click delete and then select the reason why the story is being deleted and then typing out the reason for its deletion.
Must know how to appropriately block a user: Creating a spam page gets a three day ban. According to the vandalism policy: Vandals get a two week long ban (Doubles for each consecutive violation) Plagiarism is a ban for a month Adding nonexistent categories is up to the admin/VCROC(K)'s discretion, but I typically leave a message/warning on their talk page.
Must be familiar with the layout of the wiki: I would say I am familiar with the wiki although I have recently switched to Monobook view so it will take a little time to adjust to that.
I think that about covers it. Thanks for the consideration.

Support - yes he would be a great admin 16:24, May 17, 2014 (UTC)
Support - You have no idea how my heart jumped when I saw this when I got curious on Plank's new edit. All of my fucking support 02:05, May 18, 2014 (UTC)
Oppose - I only say this because I feel like you should be on a bit more and maybe come on that chat sometimes. I only say to come on the chat sometimes because I think it helps for people to knoww you more as a person then just as an editor. If you wwait about 3-4 months and then apply, I'll change my oppose to support. Until then though I'm afraid I'll havve to oppose. 18:22, May 18, 2014 (UTC)
- What a completely ridiculous and unfounded reason to oppose. --ImGonnaBeThatGuy (talk) 18:29, May 18, 2014 (UTC)
