Nomination for ElSeiver as administrator[edit source]

I would like to nominate ElSeiver for an administrator position. They have been invaluable in terms of wiki infrastructure, as the creator and maintainer of the automated pywikibot scripts we use, and have made significant improvements to core templates such as {{ep ref}}. They also work on improving wiki content: we can thank them for the summary of "Feast of Legends" (OSx34). They bring a great deal of wiki know-how and have been involved with this wiki from the inception, as well as previously on the FANDOM wiki. - Untropicalisland (talk) 16:34, May 9, 2023 (UTC)

Thank you so much Untropicalisland! Being an administrator will allow me to perform two important functions:
1) Handling issues that come up at not-convenient East Coast times (e.g., the overnight vandal we had one time). I'm already active in the Miraheze discord and participate in discussions about outages, policies, and provide updates on our wiki when appropriate.
2) Maintaining high-visibility templates, especially relating to episodes, that rightfully require admin privileges to change because they could easily break many things across the wiki. I've rewritten a lot of the admin-protected code myself plus we have a robust sandbox and testcases system in place, so I feel pretty confident about my judgment for pushing changes. I also want to be able to quickly fix any issues that arise.
I do not make nearly as many article content edits, and don't anticipate using or needing admin privileges to do so. I feel pretty comfortable knowing when something is a block (repeated or egregious) vs a reminder or warning (the vast majority of unhelpful edits), based on Help:Blocking Policy. I'll try to help out with deleting pages no longer in use and going through maintenance categories. I would continue to be available for any assistance in our wiki discord, my talk page, and on the Admin noticeboard.
I have read and agree to the expectations laid out in Help:Administrator expectations, as well as the points in Help:Administrators. I am happy to answer any questions that other folks may have for me!! Wielding the mop is a service to others and I do not take it lightly. ElSeiver (talk) 03:27, May 10, 2023 (UTC)

I have waited for too long to weighed in with a crumb of an opinion, ElSeiver has already well described all I can say. How the admin position is especially useful to them, as a technical pro of the wiki to get access to the templates with access limited to admins. Also, as far as I know, the two current admins (Untropicalisland and the Captain) live in similar timezones (east of USA), it will be great to have an insider with extra authority on the west coast to deal with vandalism. - FurryOctopi15:21, May 10, 2023 (UTC)
