Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I spend a huge amount of time on this wiki. I'm nice and helpful to anyone who may need my help and always tries to make people feel welcome. I can code, but still learning. And if needed, I have worked as GM for my school's D&D club, so if the same things apply, then I think I'm set. I'm always trying to help out where I can and see where some of my ideas could fit into this wiki seamlessly. I've gone up for RB four times before and I'm not giving up.
Any Other Things you want to add: If you don't succeed, try again until you do.

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I know the ropes of being RB, having been one before. I'm willing to learn, I have coding experience, and make for a great person in general. I believe I get along with most everyone around and about, and am knowledgeable on the policies.

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I like to think that I can code okay enough, and I've been on the admin team before, so I have an understanding of how it works. Plus, I love helping people and just being productive, so I really think I'd be a good fit. GAH, I realize this actually sounds kinda meh but my whole point here is that I love this wiki. DARP is like my safehaven that I can go to whenever I feel down, because it'll just make me feel at home. I love this place, and I wanna give back in any way I can.
Any Other Things you want to add: To make this whole thing fair, I should probably point out that some days I might not be very active, but of course I'll try my best. Love you all!

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin:
BEFORE I SAY ANYTHING, I should probably mention that I think I don't need a colored username to help out DARP in general. I have no qualms on just helping out as an anon user, and you can ask anyone on CHBRP wiki and they'll (probably) tell you the same thing. Positions of power have always made me antsy, and after learning of how some biographies of admins go, I don't want to be treated differently, be it good or bad, just because I have a star. (In other words, because I'm terrible at public speaking/communication in general, is that I will continue to help no matter and still be me what the result of this vote is. xD Maybe I should have just said that in the first place.) I'm still your extremely unprofessional local weirdo who likes using the Shift key to an unhealthy degree in order to fangirl.

Now that my anxiety about that is placated, I want to mention that I've had experience (and still experiencing) working as a rollback on aforementioned wiki. Even though I classify myself as the laziest rollback of the 21st century, so you probably shouldn't vote for me. While I'm no Red at coding, I think I've grasped at least the general concept of basic coding during my short time here. Catty has been helping me out by allowing me to borrow pieces of her code and experimenting with them. I've been helping with the User Model Registration by contacting people about their models' availability, archiving every once in a while, and on occasion, categorizing. My activity level is questionable since I surprisingly have a life and the responsibilities of a typical teenager. To counter that (though I'm not sure how much it counts for), I've managed to pop into DARP 215 days (minimum of 1-5 edits) in a row against all odds.
I don't have the best patience in the world and I have an admittedly pitiful attention span, but when I'm adamant on getting things done, I'm more than capable of incessantly working on it. Socializing isn't my thing, along with approaching people. Some people have told me I've come across as intimidating (no idea how), but once they approached me, I more or less warmed up to them at a decent rate for an introvert. I'm still a newb at everything, and I sort of always have stuck by my motto of "I don't know enough, and I never will, and that's okay because where's the fun in knowing everything?" Oh, almost forgot to mention that I'm a speedy reader, kind of (approximately 275-500 WPM with an estimated 82% efficiency), though again I'm uncertain if that will make any difference at all.


Any Other Things you want to add: Please also take into account that I'm a kid/teenager/naive sheep, and I suck at keeping to schedules and responsibilities. However, I'm willing to try and juggle everything because certain wikians convinced me to despite my futile protests. Credit to Catty and Jaye for convincing me. xD That, and thaaaaank you for reading through my this horrifyingly long essay that makes some people want to say "DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT BREVITY IS?" No, no, I don't, but good luck to everyone else going for rollback. <3

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I'm an extremely active user on here, you can usually find me on chat or poking around at any given moment. I'm still learning for coding, however, I can do enough to help out new users. Currently, I'm working on coding a new user page and trying to create a character page as well, so… I'm willing to help out new users and have enough patience to deal with people who may create a little bit of chaos. I'm friendly and welcoming to new users, always willing to be there if they need it. I'm always open to learn new things, and have pretty strong relationships with a fair amount of people on here. So, thank you for considering me.
Any Other things you want to add: Well, I believe this is my sixth or so time running, so hopefully sixth time's the charm! (Seriously. I think.) Anyways, good luck to all running!

Carn User Name: Carnarvan Amount of Edits: 9,401 (and counting)

Amount of Characters: 10

Reasons Why You Think You Would Make A Good Admin: Howdy y'all. I'm Carnarvon or Carn as I'm more commonly know. Me and Jay are the longest serving RBs on the wiki as of now. So I know how the admin team works. I've been involved in a couple of expansions since joining AI in May of 2015. The Quidditch World Cup (admittedly I didn't GM but I did help plan), and the Epidemic expansion. I'm one of the main GMs for School and Adult Quidditch and am a very unbiased judge. I know that my current department doesn't need another admin, but I'm a fast learner and could easily settle into a new department. I'm very active, and I love to help new users figure things out. As for my coding abilities... I can code this and that so I'd like to think that I'm a fairly good coder. I've still got room to grow, but I love playing around with code, and as I said before I'm a fast learner. I've come a long way since the days when I was quite possibly the worst noob in DARP's history. And I think that's all for now, 'cause I'm probably ramblin'. Have a good day y'all.

Additional Comments: Good luck to whoever else runs for the position, I would also like to thank anyone who takes the time to consider me.

For (6) Fandomgirlforever (talk) 17:46, February 2, 2016 (UTC) 18:03, February 2, 2016 (UTC) I originally intended to abstain from the admin voting, seeing as how it's a "too close to call" kind of situation for me. But after some careful thought, and personal reflection, I reconsidered. Honestly, I have nothing against any of the candidates for admin, but, in my opinion, Carn certainly has done well, and he deserves my vote.

NAP User Name: NotAlwaysPerfect Amount of Edits: 16,431 (as of posting)

Amount of Characters: 13

Reasons Why You Think You Would Make A Good Admin: Hello! I'm NAP, or Kayle, as you all probably know by now, and I've been a Rollback since September 2015. Since then, I've archived Hogwarts, mostly on my own (with the help of Catty this past term), for two terms now, and I've helped a few users with coding mistakes, as I'm relatively good with code (especially with fixing errors, like extra hanging around the page, versus actually writing it from scratch, as it tends to look not so great, I'll admit, but I can code simpler pieces of code, but I'm working on it, and I feel like I'm getting there). I've archived pages, as best as I could, although I've recently been resorted to mostly my iPad, so it's been more difficult to do so. I've worked with categories, like clearing old year categories or adding them to pages that don't have them. As I'm sure most of you are aware, I'm a member of the OOC department, and I feel like all of these things are important to that, and therefore I think I'm good at what I'm supposed to be doing. Other than that, I would like to say that I'm on here whenever I can, and although sometimes I can't get on chat, I'm always approachable through owl, as I'm most likely still on (also, I have an unhealthy obsession with checking my owls during the school day, as I don't want to miss something important that you would need me for), so I can help whoever, whenever, with mostly whatever. Therefore, I think I would make for a good Admin, and I would love it if you considered me. I'm sorry, for the slight rambling, I hope it wasn't too overwhelming. Finally, I hope you all have/had a great day! :D

Any Other Things: I would like to congratulate, in advance, whoever is promoted, and I would also like to thank all of those who consider me. <3

I know that I have some rough patches and made some mistakes but I think this will be the perfect opportunity for me to excel at doing more things. I'm hoping that I can help Lyss more and it appears that we need an admin in the OOC department, so I'd love to do that. I get along well with users and naturally have fun working with them. I do the jobs I'm told to and always love helping people out. I would love to show you guys that I am good at what I do and can mature completely if need be. I have experience at being an administrator, because I am currently a bureaucrat on ARPW and I'm very active. I usually come on all day, sometimes every day. DARP has become like a family to me and I'd love to give back to the community to show how much I appreciate them. I've done work with adding categories and I have even made Portkey for users to have a list of places to rp. I am also currently working on a huge project that I hope to have passed. Also, I'm very well knowledged with css, wikitext and java script, as it's my job on another wikia. I also archived User Model Registration (with the help of Lissy) and all the users that have left or the characters that have died and haven't been updated. Oh and by "I can code", I mean I made this but it's really old and icky but I can code, I swear. XD Thank you for considering me. X3 <3

Amount of Characters: 10 active, 4 inactive

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I've been learning on improving my coding skills and the how-to's of CSS and JavaScript so that hopefully I may help in improving the DARP experience for future users. Even though school life has been more hectic than ever, I always make sure to check up in DARP before and after school. As some of you may notice, I have a.. fascination of archiving/clearing pages and I could sometimes be pretty speedy in it. I am perfectly willing on helping other users with their problems and offering advice. A certain user once told me that I have the 'patience of a saint' so I guess I can say that I'm pretty patient. I try to avoid conflict and prefer to settle conflicts in a civil way. I have many ideas for DARP's improvement and I hope to implement them someday. Thank you for reading and may the best candidate be chosen.

I'm a very helpful person and will help someone regardless as to how they treat others, because I believe everyone should be treated equally even if they are rude & even mean. I haven't held a leadership position on this wiki, but I have helped on 2 other wikis one that's still in the making and another, that's been running for a long while, I'm training to be on their administration team. I'm a very dedicated person and will do the work I can as to help forward the wiki in the way it should be going, which is up. Thank you for considering me for the position. c:

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: Alright, I should be more direct and honest than I am rn. For starts, yes, I've been a RB in the past, and I'm not going to hide from it. It was a very short-lived period of time, because I went AWOL for some time after that. It's RL karma, and it could happen to anyone, really. I've been an admin on two other wikis (of which both are basically dead, but who cares). I've GMed in the past and still know how to do it right. Okay, maybe not absolutely right to today's GM standards, but I do it the way I know. I have a semi-decent coding hand. I've coded my userpage, I've coded a pair of semi-dry char pages, so there's that. I'll admit, I have a tendency to act immature at times, and I get it. What I praise is that there are people, who at least put up with me. I'm not perfect and it's cause I'm a person like everyone else. (danke for at least reading my rant)

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I'm on almost every day, well, every day. Despite my extremely busy outside schedule, I still manage to make a long time available on here. I'm friendly and welcoming to new users, even helping a few new users get their character pages and WBs set up. I can GM, if needed. I'm extremely unbiased due to how my mind works (AKA I never pick a side and favour it). I'm currently teaching myself coding with the help of Code Academy and my older cousin as well as Soph. I'm aware I've made mistakes, but I'm working extremely hard on that. I'm also extremely creative and always have character or storyline ideas in my head. As a person, I do have outside lives, but I will always make time for DARP. This wiki is pretty much my family, and I know that family don't always get along, but I'm working on that.

Amount of Characters: 11

Reasons Why: Hello, DARP, to start out, I want to say I hope all of you are having a lovely and pleasant day so far, as well as several into the future. I'm NAP/Kayle, a Rollback in the OOC Department since my promotion in September 2015, and since then I've done quite ja lot as an RB. When I first joined the team, it was really only me and Alyssa, so when there wasn't somebody to archive Hogwarts, I hadn't hesitated to take on the task, and I haven't hesitated to do a single thing I've been asked to, seizing every opportunity to do something for the wiki because this place is truly so important to me and I wish to do nothing more than help it. I've added categories to pages, both those that don't have any and those that just don't have all of the possible ones on there, or I've fixed up year categories by cleaning them out of inactive characters and putting the right ones on instead. On the more user-related side of things, I've helped new users with their page and bubble coding (those diddly darn extra </div> tags hanging around the place, mysteriously lurking around have gotten us all at one point or another), for I'm good with both of those things, and I've helped them get adjusted to the new rules here at DARP, with this also going into chat and moderating it as well as just activity and such. I've done my best to be somebody who roleplays with everyone at least once, something I'm still working on, for I want to get everybody involved and for everybody to feel included. I've GMed a few times in the past, and I'm relatively okay at it, I'm not the best one out there, I'll admit, but I'm good enough that I can do it and I can do it fairly. As an Admin, I feel I could do even more, especially with the OOC Department currently not having one. So, finally, I want to say I just overall love this wiki, and I want it to do well and flourish, for everybody here is family to me whether we talk on a regular basis or not, you're all my humongous family, and that's my main motivation to continue helping and to do everything I possibly can. Again, I hope your days are all wonderful and continue to be such, and thanks for considering me and hopefully forgiving me for my run-on sentences. :D

Other Things: I wish everybody in both the Rollback and Admin elections good luck, and congratulations to the two people who are promoted, but I also want you to remember that no matter what, you're all wonderful human beings (or, you're secretly a hedgehog typing away on a computer, that's a total possibility). <3

My biggest goal is to help on here, whether it be personal, coding, advice, or simply getting started for newer users. And Rollback title or not, I'm still going to help. I've been a rollback before, and yes, I'd love to be one again - I wouldn't be typing this if I didn't. But the point is, I think I could contribute to the admin team as a whole. I love working and roleplaying with you guys, and I'll always be here when you need me! :)

Any Other Things you want to add: Like I said, I'm here for you guys, and that won't change. I'm here for anything you need, and I love you guys! <3 Oh! And always remember: Life's a party, rock your body. :D

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: So, many of you know that I'm going to be going out of the country, but that doesn't mean I'm going inactive. No, I'll be here at least an hour everyday. I also only received my RB status back in March of this year and of course I messed up a few times, but that was because I was new to the whole thing. Now, I haven't messed anything up in a long while, but just because I haven't messed up doesn't means that I should be an admin. No, the reason I want to be an admin is simply because I love helping others out and making the wiki move forward in it's already positive light. I'm a very dedicated individual whose always done there work first on here before doing anything else and yes I don't have that many edits, but that's because my work comes first. I also will help others regardless as to how they act towards others. May they be rude or even mean, but that doesn't mean they don't deserve help, because everyone deserves it. I've never been an admin before and I've been told that it changes a lot and I think I'm ready for that change & more work put on my shoulders, but if you think otherwise please vote for someone else. Thank you c:

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: While it may be greatly illogical of me to run for this position because of my upcoming first year of high school at a campus where internet access is controlled, I think I'll be an adequate addition to the team. As I've stated in my previous paragraph on the days where I ran for the position of rollback, I'm willing to assist whenever I can, I'm decent at coding, I try my best to remain at a neutral zone and avoid bias, I give advice whenever I can. I pitched in the idea of creating a masterlist of all available character page coding in the wiki to assist the newer users in hunting down a design for their character page. I have also volunteered to be the editor-in-chief of the wiki's Daily Prophet. Though it's going slowly at the moment, I'm doing my best at keeping it up. I think that is all. :)

Any other things you want to add: As I've mentioned before, I'm at a disadvantage due to my freshman year coming this August 8 though I came up with a timetable for the Daily Prophet so it could continue in my absence. Good luck to those who are running!!

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin:
I've been an Admin since Feburary and got my RB position over a year ago. Since then I've got the Adult Quidditch League up and running, helped plan and implement two major expansions on top of a couple mini-expansions. I'm a pretty good leader, am always helpful with the new users and as evidenced by the the expansions under my belt so I know my way around running an expansion. In conclusion I'm a good leader and promise to keep a steady flow if expansions coming. Thank you for the consideration.

I've been an admin since January 2, 2014 (wow) according to the user rights log (from my old account), and it won't actually tell me when I became a rollback prior to that, so I can't help you on that front. I've been in Activity Implementation for nearly all of this time, from the expansions pioneered by Zan to the present day. And I like to think I am good at that. With new users I like to think also, that I am helpful, and generally nice towards the users that I've come to know very well. I feel like my ideas are good, and that I would be good at leading a group, as would Carn be, so I know that either way there would be someone there who is willing to try their best.

Any other things:

Well, I respect Carn a whole lot, and he's a good friend to me, so I wish him the best of luck! Thank you guys for your consideration! Good luck also Norge, you'd be an amazing admin as well as also being an awesome friend! :)

Amount of Edits: 22,902

Amount of Characters: 8

Reasons Why: Although I wasn’t a Rollback until September 2015 and an Admin until March 2016, yet I feel I’ve definitely proved myself to be a trustworthy, active member of the Admin Team. I’ve helped users (both new and old) with various things, I’ve GMed in both roleplays and quidditch matches, I’ve blocked plenty of trolls and managed vandalism, and I’ve kept the wiki organized (through adding categories, updating categories, archiving pages, clearing out Hogwarts, removing inactive users from the model list, and the recent task of organizing the templates so there aren’t a bunch of insights on them). I try to be some sort of problem solver, trying to help users or groups of users see the points of both sides, to relieve aggression between parties, or perhaps just support somebody in distress. I do this, and I will continue to do this, even though I might have disagreeing views in a subject, because I prefer to approach a situation without bias, and I find that to be important for a Bureaucrat. Besides this, I feel I could work in Activity Implementation, despite the fact that I’m currently in OOC. I’m the type of person who really enjoys planning, for that I feel that I could thoroughly plan and schedule an expansion and all of the little details that would go with it. I’m also creative and I feel I could come up with new expansions (or redo older ones that could be redone to have a new, interesting approach to still make it fun and exciting for users), while taking suggestions from other users to consider when doing so. I’ve already GMed before, and I’ve done that for a few quidditch matches in the past, so I’m sure I could do that for sure. With that said, I feel like I could take this position and I would love it if you could consider me. Thank you. <3

Other Additions: I wanted to say that I find that all of the Admins and Rollbacks who are running for promotions are totally capable of handling the positions they’re going for, and for that I wish all of you good luck. I know that whoever gets it will do great. To everybody else, I hope your days are all fantastic and I want to thank all of those who support me and consider me during this vote. <3

  5. This is probably one of the toughest decisions I'll ever make... and I regret not a single part of it. I have no hate on Lilly or Carn, but honestly... Kayle is probably one of the most well rounded and well performing Admins that I have known. To date, she has not let her duties fall to empty hands. Many kudos to Kayle for archiving Hogwarts (bc if I was an admin, I honestly couldn't see myself doing that tedious task.). In the end, Kayle has a lot going for her, and I could probably trust that as a Crat, she'll probably be next Bond or Red (both of those were excellent crats, mind you). Seriously, I mean it.

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I know I messed up, but now, I feel like those mistakes are only preparing me for more challenges that lie ahead. I want to show that I can be a better RB now, then before. However, on the flip side, this year school schedule will be busier, but I can still make time and work on here despite with what RL is tossing at me. I have been able to help out more on here, with teaching myself the proper ways of archiving pages, and have also helped with updating various categories, such as the part-nymph. I know that my characters aren't as good as they used to be, but I'm trying to bring that back. I also am friendly to new users, and able to help them get settled in on here. Something else I would also like remark before I sign off, is that this is like a family to me, and I seriously don't want to disappoint you again, but I want to show that I can be a good RB without breaking any policies or rules like I did before, so thank you for giving me this chance, and I would like to acknowledge several people, without whom I wouldn't be here today.

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: as a previous admin, I know what to do and how to take care of situations. My coding skills are pretty good and I'm good at helping people understand it. I know this wiki really well, so helping new users is very easy for me as well.

I like to think I've done a lot on the wiki- I have had a minister before, several teachers in the past, I've helped with a few new exotic races including nymphs, and I've been part of the creation of new areas including lil bundles and the london locations. Id love to continue working on the wiki, whether its expending it or just keeping everything going. :)

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I'd like to think I can code somewhat decently, making three character pages myself. And I also try my best to be as friendly as possible [though I do happen to be away in chat quite often (which I am trying to fix :P)]. I may not have all that much experience on this specific wiki when it comes to helping, but I have been a crat on another wiki for quite some time now. I've slowly been trying to immerse myself into the full rping experience here on DARP. Starting out with just a teacher, and now I have two teacher and a Head of House - which is kind of a big deal to me because I thought I'd always stay as the shy kid who wouldn't dare go as far as things like that. So as I continue to grow, I would like to be a rollback user who can both watch and help new users grow to be more confident and comfortable in the DARP community. I think I could help the wiki a lot and if given the opportunity I promise I will do my best and wont let anyone down.

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: While my coding is nowhere near on the level of Brocky or Catty's, I'd like to think I can code okay with making things such as this and this. I know speaking in chat might not be my strongest point currently (which is something I'm working on), but I have been getting more involved steadily and contributing more in general. In terms of experience I've been an admin on another wiki for roughly a year now, specifically for event-running, and while it's not DARP experience, it's better than nothing. In terms of being involved with events on DARP, I've had two characters participate in adult Quidditch (one for the world cup and another as a player/manager) and have had a healer and a teacher at this point. Whilst I know keeping up with this isn't my strong point, I've decided with my current characters - a head of house, a teacher and a student on the Ravenclaw Quidditch team - I'm going to do my best! I'd like to be a rollback as I like to think of myself as inviting and able to be welcoming to the newer userbase as well as being helpful to the community in general without disappointing.

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin:
I am a particular sort of person, I pride myself on being cordial, and amenable. However, if I do not like something people will be made aware of it. That being said. I am not sure that I would make a good addition as an admin as I am not entirely sure what exactly is required. I have reviewed a few pages related to the Admins, and their corresponding duties required of their place on the Admin team, in their certain Departments. As a result I do feel I would or that I could make a good addition to the team should I be awarded the privileged of becoming one. There are some things on the wiki I already do that fall under the RB category, and I do them out of necessity. I take the responsibility not just for myself, for the DARP community as a whole. There are a few things I would also need to begin doing, or learning how to do that also fall under the aforementioned category. It is my belief that figuring out how to plan events, moderate the wily beast that is chat, create storylines that involve more than just my own characters among other things, are what come with the title.

While I may come off as immature at times, I'm still pretty administrative. Additionally, I've roleplayed a bit of quidditch here and believe I can learn to gm, and will have the time to gm (assuming that's the reason the wiki is asking for an AI XD). I'm not the strongest of coders, but I'm learning slowly and wiki script is semi decipherable because of its abbreviated nature.

However, this will be my fifth time running for an admin position, and I think I can thrive as a RB again. I am good with new users, and I always have good ideas for different possible expansions. I get along well with pretty much everyone on here, and I think I could do an excellent job as RB. I'm also extremely unbiased and I try and make group desicions off of what other users want to happen. I'm also able to work with others and also able to GM fairly.

  • History of being a bcrat on other sites (knowing how to work with wikia)
  • Active member
  • Never banned or punished/never kicked from chat/broke policy
  • Been a rb on here for sorting and ooc departments
  • Interesting ideas and plots
  • Dilligent worker
  • Spare time to devote to DARP


Why You Should Vote for Me:  I have thought about this for a little bit now, even before the voting opened up. I have gone over various things such as; should I be on this team again, would I bring valuable assets and will people be able to see past mistakes that have been made? All of these things have been floating through my mind but I chose to try once again. The last time I left was due to complications with life and school mingling heavily with the atmosphere here. I'd like to say that I want to learn from any mistakes and improve upon them and hopefully be the perfect member that is needed for this position. As a member of DARP with valid experience, I believe that my history of being a rollback here in two different departments (sorting for a very short time and out of character) will benefit me in the long run for this open position. Not to mention that I would love to bring new and exciting activities to DARP. I have many plots and ideas circulating in my brain. Me and Nap have been friends for quite a long while and I know for a fact that she would be an amazing boss that I would be able to work under and that the opportunity to do so would be very exciting. However, I will be able to put our friendship aside to deal with my duties on a professional level. 

Post Script (p.s): I just want to say thank you for listening to me and I hope you vote for the person you believe will be the best asset to the staff.

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: Ah, where to start, so I know I'm not the best at everything I do and I try as best I can to complete and do every task correctly and efficiently. Although I've had a few bumps in the past, I've worked to make sure I never make the mistake again, which is something I've become more comfortable with. Although I'm not here all the time, RL comes first, I'm actually rather active and always dropping by to peek at wiki activity and other things. Though I go a day or two without making an edit, it's best not to think that I'm not around, because I normally am. As for coding, I can do a lot of stuff with it, although, I can't say my coding will ever match up to others, because it simply won't. The only thing I can say is that I know how to at least read and understand most coding types which is as good as anything, right? I hope so :D Everyone who knows me, knows that no matter how I feel about a person I will always treat them as kindly as I possibly can, even if my dislike for them is rather strong. I will, under any circumstances, attempt to keep my polite demeanor, although nothing about me is actually calm, so it's better not to lie. I'm a rather rambunctious fast pace person who wants to get things done asap. Which a lot of people would both agree and disagree with, because I also procrastinate, which really isn't good, but I try my best to be on top of my game. I would like to point out that, although, I've only been an RB since March of this year and that I've been in every department which, I'm assuming, at least says that I might know what I'm doing some way or another in people's eyes. Lastly, thank you for taking your time to read this. c:

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin Hello DARP! For those of you who don't know me, my name is Brocky and I'm a rollback user in the OOC department. Throughout my time as a regular user and a rollback, I have always tried to do my best when it comes to participating in chat. Mind you I'm not always looking at it, I try to maintain a friendly attitude to both new and older users alike. Helping others when I can actually be of service to them while also doing my best to learn new things so I can help others with issues I may not have been able to help them with previously. I'm also constantly trying to get involved on the IC side of things. The most recent case is having one of my characters elected as Minister for Magic, other cases include having both teachers and a head of house. I an also quite good in coding, having created various different types of codes. I'm willing to help out in all three departments, despite the OOC department being my home I have also helped out when it comes to GMing. I definitely wouldn't say I was great at it, but I don't think I was horrible at it either and if I become an admin I hope I'd be given more chances to help out when it comes to GMing. Although I haven't helped out in sorting, if I we ever needed for that position I would definitely do it to help out the wiki. My point is I am not afraid to help with anything. I think I'm starting to ramble so I'll close this spiel off by saying I truly do love this wiki and everyone on it, and I hope I can continue to help everyone in the community, whether I'd be helping them as a rollback or an admin.

Any Other Things you want to add: Thank you for considering me as an admin and best of look to the other candidates! <3

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: Well, I've been around a heck of a long time. No jokes. I've been an admin since January 2, 2014, and my promotion to rollback is apparently so historic that it doesn't even show up on the user rights log. Heh. Thanks Wikia for making me feel really old when I'm actually quite young. >.< So, I've been on the AI team for some time now, since before Zan left, iirc. I like to think I'm also approachable when it comes to newbies so that I can answer any questions they might have. I've been told by many users they think I'd make a good crat, I'm good at staying impartial and looking at both sides of any argument - creds to A Level Politics and GCSE Philosophy and Ethics :P - so I hope that'd make me a good team leader. I can code somewhat well, although it's nothing compared to the likes of Brocky just above me. I really hope you'll consider me for Crat, 'cause I don't have any thoughts of leaving this awesome community just yet (although it might be tired of me :P) and want to do the best I can to keep DARP fun and successful! Thanks!

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I have tons of leadership experience from my participation in the Boy Scouts and a number of other organizations. I know that leading in the real world is different than being a crat on the wiki, but I think there's some transfer. I've been around a while, about two years I believe. I've been on the admin team for about a year and have been admin since March. So I think that I have a pretty good grasp of what it means to be on the admin team. I'd like to think that I'm friendly towards new users and make myself available to anyone that needs help. Even OOC stuff. I have been known to help users out with Homework :P.

So overall, I'd like to think I have a fair amount of experience, know what it means to be a leader and could be a good addition to the team as a crat.

Any Other Things you want to add: I think either way, we're going to get a solid user getting promoted up to crat xD If I lose, (I probably will) I'm a-okay with Lilly winning

I'm alright with UR - I'd love to help out with new users. I'm also alright with AI or OOC (in general), since I've heard certain admin team members are transferring. Basically, wherever you need me, I'm willing to go; I've got a lot to offer regardless of where you put me. That being said, I've been in S&S before for quite the while, not to mention I'm S&S Head in a few places, so I'd really rather not be placed there, but if it's what's needed, I'm willing to consider. Anyways, yeah. I reckon it's useless to put my history here, you guys know how I am, hence the lack of that kind of information. Thanks! :)

  • Reasons: While I haven't been as commonly associated with the staff department, I've had the experience required and have even been rollback before. Unfortunately, I had to step down due to an influx of course work while attending college. Now that I have plenty of free time and only a part time job stopping me, I'd love to be one of your new rollbacks. I have experience with coding and filing. I definitely would said that I like to keep things up to date and tidy as well as running smoothly. I'm extremely versatile so I could be placed into any of the departments and find it a comfortable fit.
  • Anything Else: A while back, I went through the hassle of making the Portkey (thanks to Red's helpful coding) for some little extra help when looking for places to roleplay. Also, I know that anyone DARP chooses to fill these positions will be a proper fit. <3

While there's like zero bonus for this, I hold a variety of ranks elsewhere, so there is that.

  1. here ya go 
So I guess I thought people might change their minds after I slapped some reasoning on here? I guess no one checks back after they vote. I'm sure no one's going to see this until it's too late, but I decided to get this out there anyway. 
First, I would like to remind everyone that the main resposibility of this department will be to interact with and help new users--to make them stay on the wiki. Second, this goes beyond a personal vendetta, because I'm sure most of you know of another applicant I don't always agree with or like all that much, but I have no issue with that user being in this department because, despite whatever personal issues I have, I know that user can be trusted to do a good job. Now, I don't know if anyone bothered to read the screenshots on my blog, but Soph, according to herself, held a grudge over a character she plagiarized and was caught for doing so, for almost two years (the page, Geist Weiss, was deleted early January 2015, and the conversation on chat was during Hurricane Mathew, which I think was October 2016). This grudge of hers led to her attempting to smear another user for cheating during GMing quidditch games. (This user, I might add, was a crat at the time, indicating several somebodies somewhere thought she was up to the task.) I realize this all went down about five months ago, but I find it hard to believe that Soph has let that go, considering her apparent track record. I cannot, with a clear conscience, let a user who acts so immature--especially as a result of being caught for clear rulebreaking--be promoted into a department intended to guide, interact with, and retain new users, and quite frankly I am suprised that she has this many votes. If I could, I would use each of my three votes against her, but that wouldn't do any good at this point.
I'm open to Soph getting a chance after she's shown that she's changed, but it's not yet been a fourth of the time she's been shown to hold a grudge in the past. When I know she's not going to pull that sort of stunt again, I'll give support where it's due, but it's not due here.

I may not seem like I'm up for certain task but I have potential, giving me the chance to be anything anywhere. My grammar may be terrible, I may not write histories as long as others, I may not have an experience at being a RB here like others I'm going against but I just as good as everyone else. I'm also tired of not being able to contribute in any major way towards here. I've seen some distant wikis die and I don't want that to happen here.

  • Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: It's hard to believe that I was still in elementary school when I joined this wiki, and now I'm two years away from entering college (probably the reason I haven't been as active as of late, but hey, I'm trying!). I've made so many memories here and to see the wiki that has shaped a huge part of my life so far be... dead, it makes me feel sad. And that's why I'm herr, running for RB. DARP is my home, which is why I've come back so many times and to be able to seal with a place as RB would be wonderful. I'm a good addition to the admin team because I have experience, I have good experience with coding. I know how to work most admin thingys (archives, sorting, that sort of things) and I'm trusted and well-liked by most members of the community, seeing that I was encouraged to run. I'd like to thank everyone, old and new, for making my DARP experience wonderful and contributing positively to my life, and I'd like to return the favor for other users. Good luck to my fellow running mates!

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: Well, this is different. Let me sit down for a moment. Okay, to start things on a soft note: I was once upon a time a part of S&S, and it was and still is where my heart feels best. I check here often, despite not exactly actually interacting in any way (bar my occasional RP with a person or two). While I cannot flatly just guarantee stuff, because you can never be 100% certain, I will certainly do my best to keep up with sorting, and making sure people get their beans promptly taken care of. I'll do everything to the best of my ability, and I can be a decently reliable person to count on if life gets in the way.

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: Hello! It's Livi here, and although this was supposed to be here like, days ago, I wasn't able to get near a computer and so now I'm finally here :). I've been here on DARP for a long time (longer than more than half of the current admin team, in fact), but I've never been an admin and the highest position I've ever had is RB. This time, I feel confident enough that I can handle the responsibilities of adminship. And listed below, are reasons that I feel back up my claims:

  • Experience/Adaptable: I've never been in S&S, but I've been a part of two other departments: OOC and AI. It's true that I have little experience with S&S, other than contributing the model question to the Sorting Quiz, but I feel that my experience with two other departments will help me out greatly with my endeavors with S&S, should I get the position.
  • Personable/Approachable/Helpful: S&S is a department that will deal with new users, and I feel that this is another important trait to have. Other users have said that I'm kind and easy to talk to, and that I never strike people as intimidating. I feel that I'm super nice and I'm always ready to drop everything to help someone out, no matter what it is they need help with.
  • Clean Image: This might not seem like much, but given all the past things that have happened on DARP, I think it's safe to say it's an important thing. I've never been involved in a scandal, and given that I wish to be promoted to a admin, this is especially important. I'm going to be looked up to by new users and users that have been here alike, and I need to be trusted by the rest of the community. Seeing that I haven't been involved in scandalous things, says a lot about my character.

I feel that the main reason that is against me right now is inactivity, because I surprisingly do have a life outside of DARP. DARP is a wiki that I truly connect to, and everyday I check the wiki, despite the lack of edits. However, I will promise you that I will dedicate my time to the community and users of DARP, and that I will truly fit in as admin, if you do decide to vote me in. Thanks, and that is all for now :)
Any Other Things you want to add: Good Luck to everyone who decides to run :)

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I believe I'd be a good admin because I've had a lot of experience in the admin team, from being a rollback to bureaucrat on this wiki. I feel like I'd be able to dedicate time each day to work on sorting, plus I'm happy to help out on other things that the wiki needs such as GMing, expansions and administration. Some things I've been a part of organising during my time in office include the Duxterra and WHPS expansions, the introduction of the Quidditch World Cup, and recently I helped out clear a canon issue about wizarding lawyers. I'm also working on things like Wizarding Wireless Network and Witch Weekly IC along with a prototype for the model registration, which has been in need of an update for a long while. I really think I'm the guy for the job because I know what I'm doing, and I know you guys can trust me to do the job. Anything you wish to add: Vote for Pedro

Reason why I would be a good admin: I've learnt a lot of things over the time of being on here. Know nearly every rule like the back of my hand. I'm an rb on CHB if that counts plus I think the admin team needs new blood, new faces with new ideas that could give the wiki some new direction. I may not be seen mature enough to be a RB, may not get along with enough people to seem like I would be a good RB but one thing I do that some others might not do, I put everything behind me, relationships with people, past experinces, good or bad, everything behind me when I need to work.

Reason why I would be a good admin: This wikia is my home. Trust me, I've tried others, but Hogwarts is my home. I say that poetically, and also because it's true. I always come back here. I have been on this wikia for five years, and I know the rules better than anyone running. I've helped people, I've seen people coem and go. I've seen eras end and begin. I want what's bet for the wikia, and I promise with all my heart that if I am chosen as your next rollback, I will do everything I can to do what's right and healthy for the wikia.

Fluff aside, I'm friends with many of you. I try my best to be fair to all, new and old. I'm someone people tend to get along with easily. I have a bit of a temper, sure, but I've been able to keep it in line and talk things out. All I want, ever, is to be liked. It's to help, and to not be seen as someone who can't be trusted, because I promise you, you can trust me.

I've been an admin before. Multiple times. I've stepped down or left, mostly due to activity or because I needed a break. I will honestly try my best never to let that happen again. I've contributed to the wikia, shops, beloved storylines, people. I've helped the Admin team with things, just because I wanted to. I've worked on and helped created different races, like the nymphs. This wikia holds part of my legacy, and I never want to let it go.

Other things I want to add: God luck to all! I love you, really.

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I think that I would be a perfect addition to the staff team here on DARP for a variety of reasons. One, I'm extremely understanding when it comes to discussions and seeing two sides to everything. I know how to separate a job from friendship when need be and I have been actively trying to add new locations to roleplay at, including canon and non-canon. I've crafted The Spider's Web, Bittersweet Emporium, Old Forest/Swimming Hole, Old Forest/Abandoned Well, Vestibule of Mischief, Prowling Passage, Quidditch Cave, Room of Runes, Carkitt Market (a wip but includes seventeen shops), as well as head a coven in London for Vampires (headquarters: Thornhill Estate) and have more new locations in mind. I also wrote up a guidelines for vampires and dhampirs that can be located under the character race policy. I've tried to been involved in any events that happens on DARP and try my best to be there for any users who need to talk. I'm not scared of confrontation and so I feel that if an issue needs to be dealt with, I will be able to do it effectively, professionally and privately. I've been a bcrat on Avatar Roleplay wiki for a while before leaving and I've been staffed as high as a rollback on Camp Half-Blood at one time, and even was a rollback here for a little while before stepping down due to inactivity. In conclusion, I feel that I could contribute a lot of good ideas to DARP and the staff team and want to thank you for your consideration.

Reason why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: Going to be very hard stepping into he shoes of who's spot in the admin team all of us are trying to fill but I think I can try. I may not have as many edits as some other people, may not seem mature enough to be in a position of power but trust me, I am just as good as anyone else on the admin team. Recently I went on a school camp, more like a cultural camp than just for school, and since then I've felt more grounded to life, to myself, realised who and what I'm meant to be and that person is one of confidence, one that will work as hard a step he can to achieve his goals, one that will put everything that has happened behind him. I've made a few mistakes, I've offended people sometimes but like one of my characters said in an Rp, nature doesn't do perfect, it does the best solution it can get, which I think is me. I haven't held many leadership roles in many places but on every thing I do have over some people is what I've been brought up with, forgive and forget, there is always three sides to a story and also help others before yourself, so helping people out is one thing I'm always trying to do, one thing I strive to do, listening to people and forgiving them as well. There is a few people that I don't have too good feelings towards but I will put everything behind me that has happened between us to help them. I may be ignorant in some situations but when it comes to equality, I will always try my hardest to make it happen, as I myself am fighting for equality, being an Aboriginal Australian. I may not of done as much as someone like Vic, or Jaye, or Carn or Kayle but I will be there for people no matter what, which is why I think I would be a good addition to the admin team.
Anything else you want to add: Good luck to everyone, in both the voting and whoever takes the rollback spot, because I know you'll do as just as good job as the person that left to let us try to become a rollback, Hecate.

  • Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: As most of you may or may not know, my name is Brocky, Brock for short, and I'm an admin in the OOC department. I've been an admin since November of last year and before that I was a rollback since August of the same year. Although I have always been under the OOC department, I know I'd be able to transition well and quickly to become a good head for S&S. I have become greatly involved with activities on DARP, including character runs of prefects, head students, quidditch team captains, Minister, and most recently Headmaster of Hogwarts. I think the latter two show my dedication to DARP as both are major roles that require dedication, persistence, and a great deal of responsibility. I believe I've grown as a user, someone who when he first joined didn't have nearly enough confidence to hold those titles, and now has held both.

    I've also taken on quite a bit more work this current IC year, Headmaster role aside I have organized the first round of Hogwarts quidditch matches by finding GMs and making sure things take off, I've also been updating the schedule on community corner ever week. I'm slowly coming into my own here on DARP by helping out as much and wherever I can. I'm also proficient in coding, having made 5 character pages, 2 word bubbles, and many other assorted templates. DARP experience aside, some of you may know that I have also been a bureaucrat on chb for just over three years now. I know what it takes to be a crat and I'm more than willing to do it for DARP, a community in which I love dearly.
  • Any Other Things you want to add: Best of luck to everyone who's running, I know whoever wins will do their absolute best as a crat. also no tea no shade but i'm just realizing now i'm the only admin running lmao

Amount of Characters: Eight
Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: If you don't happen to know who I am then let me introduce myself; I'm Victoria but otherwise known as the screen name Queen of Anarchy. I want to start off with saying that I do have bureaucratic experience just not here on DARP. I'd also like to note that I do understand CSS, JS, and HTML coding. On here, I have been a rollback once before but unfortunately had to leave because of real life issues. I was actually a part of the Sorting and Stores Department (ironically when Jaye was bcrat - hi jaaaaye). I have also been part of the OOC Department before as well. Now I am a rollback once again in the User Relations department and while that's swell, I really think that it's time I try for bureaucrat. While I may not have the same amount of experience as everyone else in that particular department, I'm all about trying new things and getting some new blood into the admin team. But to further understand me as a user, I have to delve into some of my history on here and explain better why I think I would make a good bureaucrat.

  • Active - I would like to think that my activity is pretty bang-on and I always try to fulfill my duties as a rollback in the user relations department which pretty much helps out the other departments so I get a little bit of experience everywhere. I never take a leave of absence without a written warning on a blog and my profile and I don't normally get overwhelmed by real life things so I know I can continue to maintain a really active status. I think this is extremely crucial to being a bureaucrat on here.
  • Friendship vs. Job - One issue (on rare occasion) this community sometimes faces is weird grey area where friendship sort of blurs out any sort of action when it comes punishments, warnings, etc. I continue to show that I can separate friendship from my work. I also know how to look at both sides of the story and try to diffuse any conflict before working toward a middle ground as a mediator.
  • Hard-Working - Since my election to rollback in the user relations department, I have been actively trying to help out and even craft up some new ideas for DARP. I sort forums that I see, I add categories where they are needed, and I consistently archive. With Kayle's unfortunate but understandable need to step down, I want to prove that I can at least attempt to fill her shoes as an amazing head of sorting and stores and that I can balance a plethora of tasks.
  • New Locations - I absolutely love making new and exciting locations for users to roleplay. Currently, I've made The Spider's Web, Bittersweet Emporium, Old Forest/Swimming Hole, Old Forest/Abandoned Well, Vestibule of Mischief, Prowling Passage, Quidditch Cave, Room of Runes, Carkitt Market, as well as head a coven in London for Vampires (headquarters: Thornhill Estate).
  • OOC Tools - Upon spying the Marauder's Map which was coded and created by the amazing Red, I thought it may be a cool idea to come up with an easy navigation for the adult locations. I crafted the Portkey not long after with the permission to use Red's originally coding. On top of the portkey, I volunteered to make an OOC tool to keep track of the werewolves and vampires here on DARP. My most recent projects were Archiving 101 which I helped write and illustrate with Ck and is essentially an in-depth guide on archiving and Wand Wood/Wand Core for a quick, easy list to pick from when making your character. I plan to make more helpful templates and pages for your use.
  • Events - There is nothing better than the promotion and involvement of events that happen here on DARP and the great lengths and hard work that the activity department goes through to implement new and exciting things. This is exactly why I'm usually heavily involved in a lot of the ones that happen on here, sometimes (crazily) roleplaying more than five characters at a time for them. I have never stepped down from assisting anyone in need and live for being part of community-wide events.
  • Exclusion - While I understand that this topic can be sort of touchy, I know that exlusion is a problem on here that needs some work. I try hard to ensure that no users are excluded from things and involve anyone who asks to be part of the dynamics that I make. I also try to involve as many people in events that I can.
  • Approachable - I'm super easy to approach and like to believe I'm pretty friendly. I never shy from helping out any users if they need help, answering any questions people pose and even helping to get new users acquainted with the rules and regulations. One thing that this job doesn't require but I actively encourage is lending an ear whenever someone has a problem or feels the need to vent. I love helping people out and so I'm always willing to hear character, user and real life issues. Also, I love to roleplay and try to roleplay with new users as best I can (I sometimes get busy with duties on here).

In conclusion, DARP is my home now and I spent an insanely large amount of time on here (someone pls get me some help). I invest a lot of my imagination and happiness into this site and it would be an absolute honor to be your next bureaucrat.
Any Other Things you want to add: Good luck to Brocky, Jaye and Soph! They are all amazing picks as well. <3

  3. Amount of Characters: As of right now, it's ten, two of which are below Hogwarts age.
  4. Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I've been Bureaucrat before, for a whole year. I was good at it - at being the Head of Sorting & Stores - in my own humble opinion. I've helped DARP out in a number of things, and aided in OOC & IC developments. I created a new sorting forum, pushed for a Ministry reform, and am currently trying to kick-start Hogwarts and its activity, among other things. I'd love to retake my position as Head of S&S, and even have some ideas as to how I can contribute next (i.e. a newer, better sorting forum, a policy redo & an exotics revamp (though this is mostly just helping Omnia out here and there), plus some other, slightly more top secret things). I have a lot of experience in this department; I'm confident in my ability to head it and see it prosper again. S&S has always really been my home; it's one of the only 2 departments I've ever been part of, and the only one I've led. Plus, of course, I work well with both Lyss & Lilly, not just the current S&S members, so that's a plus.

    I don't really have much to brag about; I've always just tried to better what we already have instead of relying on new things, excluding things such as events & everything correlating to them. I'm not an excellent coder like Brocky or Vic, and I acknowledge that; however, I've never been opposed to learning. On the contrary, I've expressed multiple times my desire to learn. I like to think of myself as a user who's done everything she can to include those around her, and some examples are the Torres Family, the Werewolf Pack, among others. I've tried to be as inclusive as I can, and I like to think I'm someone users can look at for advice. Someone they (you, really) can trust and rely on. Do I consider myself nice & understanding? I do. I've had a couple of situations I've had to deal with throughout my time on the team - some even as Crat - and I think I've dealt with them the right way: in an unbiased manner, listening to all sides and reserving judgement until the time was right. I try to remain as unbiased as possible in situations involving friends, too, and if I find I can't, I tend to defer to either my co-Crats or whoever is on top of me. I also don't think it's too big a stretch to call myself grounded. An instance of this is the amount of power I hold in the IC world, or the lack thereof.

    I haven't had many high-ranking officials - just two, from what I can remember, in my three and one-fourth years here - and I don't have shiny, powerful characters. I've gone for it at times, sure, but my focus has always been on the OOC side of things rather than IC. Maybe I ought to be more involved in the IC world as a bureaucrat, but I'm personally content with developing the wiki from an OOC perspective and making sure everything is up to date, with everyone's feelings on prospective changes I make being positive. Plus, I feel like we always need at least one person to remain with an unbiased outlook on the IC world and search for ways to develop it further. Some people might disagree with me, but I do believe there's still a lot of stuff to work on OOC and someone should tackle that while the AI department seeks to develop the IC world. It doesn't take away from the fact that I'd be more than willing to become more involved IC world. I've been a member of the AI team (hell, that's where I am right now), so I guess I do have experience with IC progress, just not with characters involved.

    I've aided with the World Cups by acting as potential backup GM & sorting nearly every expansion character made, helped develop the War of Creatures until AI faced the infamous hiatus (Carn with camp, me with Maria, Lilly with personal issues, etc.), organized quidditch for multiple seasons (since my joining AI in March), sought to reinvent the Ministry & get it kick-started, got inspections going on at Hogwarts, attempted to do a similar kick-start on Hogwarts & some of its clubs, among other things. And that goes without listing the times I've helped clear Hogwarts for new school years & step up as "interim Crat" (an unofficial title, it's just how I could put it, for a lack of better words) whenever Lilly's had to step back for one reason or the other. I've also encouraged the use of pages like the Characters Up For Adoption & Wanted Characters lists, archived RPs I've seen abandoned here and there, created & updated policies and creatures alike (the clairvoyants were fairly unheard of/not-regulated until I made the blog, the pregnancies were a bit out of control, and then when the werewolves became excessive, the team began to die out, model reservations became tricky, magical animagi became a popular concept, the community went through one of its worst crises of its time, the AI team wanted to change the course of DARPian history, etc). And we can't forget my cool neighborhood, or the OOC lists I've either made or helped develop, like this and this. I've tried to help out in every way I can, to further DARP, its reputation in the roleplaying community, and relations among ourselves. I've also encouraged strengthening ties between users and growing closer, towards becoming a unified community, and have thus far been successful, in some aspects, like for instance with the Kik Boom, as I like to call it, and growing dynamics among other users, like the vampire clan, the dark organizations rising, among others.

    I've been a member of DARP for a long time, some of it not in the team, some of it in the team. I've seen the rise and fall of great characters, and the way the IC world has developed since my joining. I've laughed with all of you, I've cried with all of you, I've gone through everything with all of you. I've seen you all grow up, and you've all seen me grow up; we're a family. That's how I know that no matter what the outcome is in this election - whichever choice is made - will be the right one. If it's Vic, Brocky, or Soph, I know they won because they earned it. And that's good enough for me. I'm just glad I get to be a part of the admin team and help out in every way I can.
  5. Any Other Things you want to add: You might not think me too reliable, due to my situation post-Maria, but I have good access to wifi, so I know I'll have a steady activity, should no more hurricanes pass by. Good luck to anyone/everyone else running! :)

Amount of Edits: 10,777 at this time
Amount of Characters: 12 with 2 planned
Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: After some consideration, I've decided to rewrite this. Let me start with a small story.
I remember, when I began on DARP, way back when, if you ever told me this would happen, I'd think you're crazy. Considering the many a problem I had (and I hide nothing of it, I know what it did, I know it was wrong, I wish I could undo it, but you can never undo the damage to last), I was yet still shocked when, after everything I have done, that I could be trusted again. I know that I can change, I can fix what I broke, and that is what I did.
I was once an RB, prior to my reelection some time ago. My time then was short-lived; I served in S&S and UR for that short run that lasted barely months, before I lost all grip and had to step down. I'm not afraid of it happening again, and should it, I know what must be done. I know there's no one to speak for me, and I ask nothing of it. I remember some of the earliest characters I had sorted, and I know I GM'ed some stuff few and far in between, and as of late, I've been looking to stay on top of everything, because I wouldn't have it any other way.
If you didn't miss it, I tried to run for Minister, as well as Headmaster, but flopped, and honestly, I don't mind that. In hindsight, I currently hold the Head of Ravenclaw, as well as the Head of the Department of Mysteries, and am currently shooting for Head of DIMC. Insignificant positions, I know, but considering a Crat is expected to have some sort of position of power, I feel like even insignificant ones like those, matter. And I'm willing to go the distance to prove I can be strong in all of them. Because I want this DARP train to depart from the station.
Believe it or not, I used to do some code stuff, once upon a time. It was only these two rather shoddy character pages, and they're by no means the most basic thing ever, but I've found reason to pick coding up again, and have started a little pet project I named Helix. Will it be as grandiose as I can sometimes faintly imagine it? Probably not, but at least I'm willing to learn.
I've been trying to be more involved, I will admit that. Have I started a new movement of some sort? No, but I am working on one of my own, to spice things up a bit. But of the developments that have happened lately... I've been proactive in being involved. Am I saying no one else is? Absolutely not. Everyone is doing something. I'm just following along, doing what I know best.
I suppose the one thing I sometimes feel happy knowing, is that I'm always there for anyone and everyone. If you need a shoulder to cry on, someone to have laugh with, or whatever it is, I'm more than happy to do it. I'm by no means a perfect person, and I love that I'm flawed. Because I want to help others succeed, where I didn't. So even if I fail here, I'll support whoever succeeds, because I care.
Any Other Things you want to add: Best of luck to anyone and everyone who runs!

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I am an active member of the community, not only as a user but also as an administrator. Currently, I am the only one and I believe that I should get bcrat because I worked my way to the top through dedication and hard work and never turned away when things got hard. With the decline in activity, I've actively explored ways to bring it back and hosted events such as the Winter Solstice and the End of Term Feast but also have been plotting larger events that will take place wiki-wide (spoiler alert) in the future. I've made a plethora of locations on DARP for the community to roleplay on and I've been active in every event thus far. I strive to be the best user I can with intention of making my wikia proud and my users happy. My first action as bcrat if I get elected is to immediately start the process of policy rewrites and I'm hoping to breathe some life back into classes at hogwarts and the ministry. Additionally, I've made OOC and user tools like our beautiful portkey and a "book" dedicated to Archiving. My biggest strength is my ability to seperate my job on this wikia from my friendships. I'm also active and have been recruiting users to join the Southside Serpents (gang) with the hope of entertaining the userbase and giving them something to be a part of.

Any Other Things you want to add: I wish the best of luck to all those who run! I have trust in the wikia's choice and know whoever is picked will be an amazing bcrat!

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I realize that for me, this is a huge "old song in a new voice" kind of moment for me (it's an old Bulgarian saying). But oh well, I don't wanna give up even then. I suppose it comes without question that I've been here awhile now (not as much as some people though, altho it does make me feel new when that comes by). Despite the rare happening of my name, I'm always watching Wiki Activity, even in inconvenient for me times. For me, I always try to put my duties first and then everything else; I suppose I'm open enough to people that if you wanted me to do something, I'd do it. I realize it makes me sound more a follower versus a leader, but if I need to step up, I will and I will do it my way. I know I'm a slow person when it comes to doing things, but I never say never. I realize I have nothing fancy to say that I've done, but I did do this thing, and after some minor setbacks :') it's still due to happen and I do have plans to go beyond (on a success, of course, I wouldn't want to commit to things that others don't wanna do). If I am chosen... I am ready to do my part for the better of DARP.
Any Other Things you want to add: Good luck to anyone/everyone who runs, and vote for the candidate you think is best for this :)
