Conker's Bad Fur Day (Adminship)

The result of the discussion was: Support Support

Ends January 26, 2012 Hello. I am Conker's Bad Fur Day, a contributor here since April 2011. I have done many things to help the wiki, infoboxes, cleanup, images, etc. Thanks to everyone else who has helped too. I feel I am ready and I will happily keep this place good when I am a sysop. I have good faith, never flamed anyone, etc. I might have made some mistakes, but I have learned from them and I have learned from them. Retrying as RR6W said that its time.

Oppose Oppose - No. There's absolutely no reason for a new administrator. There's no need in a small community like ours to have more administration, more of that just leads to more tedious bureaucratic actions and processes. Conker, you're a good editor and you're still quite active, but I don't think MarioWiki is in need of an administrator; I suppose you could make it as a Rollback, though. — Wattz2000 22:28, January 19, 2012 (UTC)

Comment Comment I'm going to provide a little analysis not on Conker's Bad Fur Day but rather whether the wiki truly needs another admin. It is true that it would appear to one that the wiki wouldn't have much use for another admin. However, from experience, it is good to have a couple back ups. You don't want to look around one day and find out that you are suddenly down to one admin (that is always nice). However, this was simply in regards to the statement that there are enough admins. I'd say 3-4 active admins would be good for a wiki this size. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs} 17:40, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

Well, there doesn't HAVE to be only one bureaucrat. For some reason, people thought that the rule was only one b'crat. Might have to do with me promoting CC when I left. Though, that was out of necessity. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs} 00:38, June 4, 2012 (UTC)

I told myself I wouldn't do this until a good while into my editing here, seeing as I resigned from my position as administrator in a dramatic way. I'm actually going to explain what happened during that time When I was an administrator, it was because Count Caterpie was going to be inactive. However, he told me that he would still be semiactive and would be able to help me with things like blocking people, cleaning up vandalism, and the like. However, after a bit of time I couldn't stay on the wiki for much. Not many people, or possibly anyone at that time, although I think Wattz knew some of what was going on. Basically, I have depression and as such I was busy with handling my life. I would lurk in Community Central Chat because I was a chat mod at the time. As well as my depression, I had a boyfriend and I was preoccupied with him and how bad he made me feel. That's besides the point. I demoted myself because I couldn't handle the stress of the wiki plus he stress of my boyfriend, and the stress of my depression. I was asked multiple times by multiple people to delete this page, block that user, protect this page, warn that user. It was a lot to handle with everything else I had to deal with.

So that explains and clears up why I demoted myself, and why I projected what I was feeling by calling the wiki fail. I felt like a failure as an admin, and was projecting that by calling the wiki in general fail.

With recent events, I figured that there could be use of another person who can clean up vandalism. I know how to use the rollback tool as I have had rollback rights on Zeldapedia for almost two years. I'm a trusted user throughout multiple communities and I know how wikitext and the like works. I also help out this wiki a lot, a lot more than I used to.

In short, I'd like to be trusted with rollback rights again as I know how the right works and I am capable of using said right without abusing it.

I truly hope you consider this request.

Support Support: I'd like to see rollbackers more prominent around here ^^ I know it's off-topic to put it here, but I'd like to clean-up the current rollback first (though, I feel CoCat and MG could stay with rollback). While I heard Wikia Staff tend not to, I'd like some of the old crats should lose that right as...I dun think they're really comin' back...

I am perfectly capable with the admin rights (I am Mario Kart Racing Wiki's bureaucrat and an admin of Nintendo Wiki). I also have a long experience in formatting/syntax, as demonstrated with my signature burger, and wish to help out even further. I see by looking above I need to have been here a month and have at least 100 edits; well, for a time, I held the highest edit count of anyone on the Wiki.

Oppose Oppose: I have a few valid reasons as to why I feel you shouldn't be trusted with administrative rights. The first would be your first RfA and your second. You may notice your statement in the first RfA I am perfectly capable with the admin rights (I am an admin on SNN) and have welcomed a hell of a lot of users. I also have a long experience in formatting/syntax, as demonstrated with my signature burger, and wish to help out even further. I see by looking above I need to have at least 100 edits and have been here a month, which I have been. I am here quite often as well and have the eighth-highest edit count. is almost exactly the same as your current one. You haven't taken your time to state why you should be given the rights or why you would like the rights. You really don't provide much at all. And you seem to be hounding for rights, it just doesn't seem right. Additionally, the last time you edited was on June 30, 2012. You've been inactive for roughly 200 days and you come back and immediately want rights. – EnemyPeacemaker 01:09, January 27, 2013 (UTC)

Oppose Oppose: I must agree with Wattz and Jazzi. As much as I like you (haha), I seriously do not think it works for you to walk into MarioWiki randomly after a couple of years and then decide you're going to run for adminship.
You've had only 100 actual mainspace edits your whole entire account life on this wiki, and that clearly is not enough to even begin to think about giving you adminship.
And Jazzi pointed out how one of the previous RfAs you made had nearly the exact same reason for why you should become an admin. And that just blows it, honestly.
If you can get buttload more of mainspace edits and prove yourself a trustworthy, honest, and confident user, I will take into consideration of promoting you to adminship. But you unfortunately have not proven any of that, so obviously there's not much more to say here than... no. Sorry, dude. --Rainbowroad6w, the researcher.

I won't vote, seeing as how I do not believe in democracy, but from past experience I can vouch for this person being completely unfitting for any position of authority due to being borderline obtuse when it comes to arguments. Maybe you should incorporate a certain threshold of aesthetics for this position as well. We're all still suffering the occasional acid flashback on account of the massive nuclear holocaust of 10,000 years of progress within the fields of art and culture that your "burger" represents. --AuronKaizer! 01:52, January 27, 2013 (UTC)

I started officially started editing MarioWiki on August 28, 2010 where I was a "red link remover". In short, I was a stupid noob and thought that red links were bad and gave the wiki a bad look. I served a one month block for harassment, but I'm not sure what I had done. I came back on December 23, 2010, where I sent a message to Count Caterpie apologizing for my actions.

I have had altercations with a few users in the past. I was an immature, self-absorbed, fourteen year old brat. I definitely am far better than I was when I first started editing Wikia as a whole. I have bad mouthed this wiki and others that I edit The reason I have done that is because occasionally I get very frustrated when I work hard on something and it results in it getting messed up or something that I wasn't expecting to happen happens. Honestly, it's pretty frustrating.

I was a previous administrator here. When Count Caterpie had first started leaving, he left me with administrator rights. At the time when I decided to remove my rights, it was October 16, 2011. I had removed the rights because while I had the rights I was always being asked to delete this and protect that and block whoever. Another reason I removed my rights is because I was a stupid teenager. Long story short I was in a relationship with a guy who was not a fan of my use of the internet. I was also spending a lot more time hanging out with said before and being a stupid teenager.

I still get some rough times, but I've come a long way from where I was before. With RR leaving, it would be beneficial to the wiki to have an admin in place when he leaves. And since one admin may not always be on, it helps to have more than one. I'm requesting bureaucrat rights as well because I don't believe in the whole "head admin" thing, but I do believe that more than one admin is needed at times.

I think it's safe to say that she has matured in her weak areas; mainly respect and temper. Honestly I think she is up for it. Though honestly I do feel a bit iffy about her being bureaucrat. --Rainbowroad6w, the researcher. (Talk)(GCWaves YouTube channel) 05:11, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

See, I don't mean to talk crap about her, but there's these times where she really doesn't seem matured. RR, how much do you talk to her? Maybe being at the wheel of adminship, maybe her attitude would be better, but per being with her in so many channels, I can say that she has impaired judgment (as well as raging out at random times) in regards to a lot of people, and because of that, she can make for a tense job as admin. I changed my vote to an oppose because of something she did last night, completely ragequitting on me, including her saying she'd "cut off interaction." when I was only trying to defend my case about wanting to help her. She becomes insensitive toward others, and seems to have issues handling/acknowledging opposing opinions/reasons. I've known her for almost 2 1/2 years, and was in a relationship with her for a good while, I know her and I don't want to be harsh and not let her have this adminship -- I really do want her to have it if she wants it -- but like I said, maybe being an admin might change her attitude. We need all the help we can get, I just worry. The Puzzle Master 10:28, May 16, 2013 (UTC)
Off-wiki matters are exactly that. I do a great job at Pokémon Wiki, and if you fear that I'm going to freak out at you because of what happened last night, then you are being 100% biased. I didn't ragequit, I said I was doing for me, if you can't handle someone doing something for themselves than maybe you're the one not fit for an administrative position. You're being biased right now, and there's no way you can wiggle around it, you opposed because I didn't want to talk to you anymore. This oppose is you letting your emotions speak for you. And frankly, it's pretty sad. You've proved in your explanation that this is a purely emotional vote. I'm at a better place than I was when I was an administrator here last time, if you think that I'm not fit to be an admin considering what I go through, you need to take a step back and realize that you're currently in a different place than you were when you were last admin, and if anyone's emotions make them not fit for the job, than it would be your emotions. Maybe you need to take a longer wiki-break, because it doesn't seem like it helped you much. DangerousDangerously 11:09, May 16, 2013 (UTC)
If you think you do a great job at Pokémon wiki, here's some stuff to do. I'm not going to lie, but you are very insensitive. You don't care how others feel more than half the time. But that's only part of the issue. It's true that I've gone through a lot the past few months (in order of losing an unfaithful girlfriend, being betrayed by friends, struggling financing, losing my father, and some little girl who just who's too stubborn to let a grudge die) but you don't know what goes through my mind and why certain actions are taken, what I contemplate all the time, why I really need someone there. What really makes you think that this is an emotional opposition? It's true that you frustrate me, but that doesn't make this biased. I'm only going off of past experiences with you and how you act elsewhere. My opposition was initially going to be a neutral because of this, and I wanted to be nice and give you a support, but you went ahead and did what you did last night, proving my ideas of you not able to hold things together very long. I like how you subsequently tell me that I shouldn't be an admin now and that you're implying I need "help." But thank you, btw, for making me feel more of a burden than I already knew I was. : D The Puzzle Master 12:05, May 16, 2013 (UTC)
In all the cases you've listed at Pokémon Wiki, they are all things I've been looking into at fixing them but have not had the time the past few days because of Mother's Day, my sister's early birthday, and the 14. I have let the grudge die, and I was doing for myself by removing the problem that has been causing me stress and negative feelings that I have had, and by removing the problem, I had to remove you. I am able to hold things together, and for far longer than you know. I did for myself by removing the problem that was you and you causing me stress and far more emotions than I needed to start healing. Not to mention you also stated But thank you, btw, for making me feel more of a burden than I already knew I was., which is letting your emotions get into the way. DangerousDangerously 14:20, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

Ok guys. If anything either of you are saying is true about each other, here's my input:

Wattz, although you are indeed denying it, if your emotions are seriously taking control of you, you need to get ahold of yourself. Again, if it's not true (and you are indeed denying it), then great. But administrators canNOT let their emotions get ahold of them ever. It is already an issue to let that happen as a normal human being and also a user on Wikia, and I know this because I've witnessed it with Conker's Bad Fur Day, who pretty much would always hit himself and demote himself because one person accused him of something, even if it wasn't that big of a deal. So if any of what Jazzi is saying is indeed true, that needs to be changed.

Jazzi, on the other hand, I have noticed that you are very apathetic about everything and everyone. I have this issue a little as well, but I think you may take it a little too far and you have in fact ragequit on things in the past, which is completely inappropriate. If you are continuing to do so, that is no attitude that an administrator should have, more so a bureaucrat. You also denied having this trait, but again, if it is indeed true, it needs to stop. New users and other users and even other administrators want respect and they do not like to be have someone being aggressive toward them and not caring about what they think and feel. If you've ever been bullied, you know how it feels.

There is honestly a balance between both of your issues. You do not want to let your emotions take hold of you, but you do want to take into consideration what others say and you want to be calm and understanding. At the same time, you don't want to be too harsh, but you do need to take admin responsibility and not be too soft on anything. Not too hard, but not too soft. There's a balance.

Both of you are constantly accusing each other of being totally biased. If you two are going to have this attitude, then I do not feel safe about leaving the wiki in BOTH of your hands. I will not stand to see arguments like this between two administrators who are supposed to be running the site. MarioWiki will lose its good reputation if you two continue to argue so aggressively over stuff like this. Have you ever seen Sonic Fanon Wiki? The place is, for one, pretty darn stupid, and for two, the admins there are very biased, very harsh, and just want power. Because of this, Sonic Fanon Wiki has gained a very bad reputation, and some sites that make jokes about other websites have even noted the site and joked about how awful its admins are. I never want to see that here; that was never my vision and I'm sure it isn't what anybody wants to see.

If we even want to come remotely close to competing with Super Mario Wiki (right now, I'll be honest, we are failing miserably), then we need to have good admins, a good community, and good articles. And, from experience and from what I've witnessed, the better the admins, the better the community. The two sort of go hand in hand. I mean, for Lord's sake, the admins are running the site and are the head of the community, so what do ya think? :)

--Rainbowroad6w, the researcher. (Talk)(GCWaves YouTube channel) 14:37, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

RR, it was not a ragequit. I was removing a negative aspect from my life. I care far more than people think I do, and I'm not always aggressive, I'm considerably less aggressive than I used to be. I'm very aware that I am apathetic, but it's a part of my life that is going to be fixed when something bigger gets fixed. There is reason behind my apathetic behavior, but it's not needed to drag onto the wiki. DangerousDangerously 17:02, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

Well then, don't let it drag onto the wiki. And I wasn't straight-out accusing you of being highly apathetic or anything, but I decided to sort of talk about it for a few seconds just in case you do indeed have an issue. In the past, you have had those type of issues, so there was a slight bit of curiosity to whether or not you ever got over that trait. --Rainbowroad6w, the researcher. (Talk)(GCWaves YouTube channel) 19:57, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

I'm very glad you're stepping in here, and I am really glad to see that passion for the wiki's future in you, RR (and I do appreciate that you, a neutral yet important party, got involved). The issue here is kinda what you said in that neither of us are fit with our emotions (which imo is because she never talks about issues and I'm too paranoid and cautious about everything), and there is an issue on what others say and even how sensitive we are around each other. We both have had experience as admin, and we both are qualified, you know that. I think that forcing us both work together would be a step toward us making up some for some of our feuding, but I don't know if that may cause collateral damage or not. Per my own ideology though, one of the best ways to fix this is to just lock us both in a room and let us kill each other by talking out everything (kinda like what she and I tried to do a few weeks ago with a couple of Community Central chat people). But regardless, I don't want any of us to have to go or just let the wiki be alone or turn to crap because of our feuding. The Puzzle Master 22:48, May 16, 2013 (UTC)
I have every reason to not talk about my issues. So please, don't drag that here. DangerousDangerously 22:55, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

There's "offense" because there isn't a problem. DangerousDangerously 23:12, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

Ok, yeah, Jazzi, honestly, you are taking everything a slight bit too seriously and offensively right now. Every time we say something you seem to sort of talk back in a slightly aggressive attitude. It could very well just be the way I'm reading it, because I'm not talking to you face-to-face, but it seems as though you are being a slight bit aggressive over honestly nothing. --Rainbowroad6w, the researcher. (Talk)(GCWaves YouTube channel) 02:08, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

The only thing I'm being aggressive about is the fact that Wattz is a firm believer that I don't talk about my issues and that's the root of all my evils when it is false. That is literally the only thing I'm aggressive about. DangerousDangerously 02:32, May 17, 2013 (UTC)
But you're being aggressive is his point. You're not engaging the actual issue, you're instead getting rattled by the comment and not simply talking it down. This precise moment shows that while I make this accusation that yes, you rarely don't want to talk about your issues, you make these responses of angst rather than keeping that apparent level head. You make something a problem when you bottle it up and not talk about it. It's not healthy for you, and I'd suggest finding a good quiet way to relax yourself if it's getting to you. The Puzzle Master 02:48, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

I'm not wanting to take sides here and don't intend to in the long run, but what Wattz is saying is pretty much where I was going. By now I'm honestly just not sure if I want you being admin if a little bit of advice or something like pointing out little flaws are going to get you all hyped up. That just can't happen. --Rainbowroad6w, the researcher. (Talk)(GCWaves YouTube channel) 04:41, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

The only reason this has happened is because Wattz pushes issues and pushes buttons. He knows what gets me going and what makes me mad. He has taken advantage of that knowledge and has put it to use here. I got aggressive because Wattz pushes the matter that I don't talk about my issues, when the very reason I don't talk about them is because when I do people invalidate them, even Wattz, which is why I don't talk about them to him especially. He's annoyed because I wanted to cut him off from my life. I'm not "hyped up". I can handle flaws being pointed out. The thing I can't handle is when Wattz pushes a matter that he knows I don't want pushed. I recommend you talk to Wattz for a few months one-on-one to get even a smidge of the experience I have gotten. DangerousDangerously 10:34, May 17, 2013 (UTC)
See, that isn't the only issue though. I push things when I worry about you and your well-being. Some days you'd talk, some days you'd not. But that's not my point, my point is that, while sometimes I deny the extensiveness I do something, I do at least can acknowledge that I've done something wrong here. We're both at fault here, and you know it, you're too stubborn to admit it. And while I'd dislike to bring them up, Minish knows it, Pigi knows it, I'm sure CoD, Ty, and RT know it, and look, it took RR maybe 2 seconds to know it. Actually, I don't want to bring up a lot of this stuff, but I feel that it may be necessary to move this discussion of what's got you being aggressive forward and actually assess the situation here.
So, let's take a look at what issues I have. I have a lot of emotional pain because of things that you've done as well as triggers in my school/home life, yeah (everyone undergoes stress, it's my senior year of high school [until today : P], and being cheated on causes a lot of psychological issues). I push issues whenever the issue worries me to a great extent (when I see tumblr/facebook/IRC/skype/whatever notes from you referring to your behavior, I feel like a horrible person if I just stood by and watched you potentially beat yourself down emotionally). But, to be honest, this is something you need to tell me off about, so if there is anything else you'd like to bring to the table of "what's got you agitated," please don't hesitate.
And now yours. You have a defeatist attitude (you know you can't deny that one : /), this entire talking issue here (I still don't get your whole deal here -- what kinda friend would I be to let someone wallow in misery? and why do you have a childish emotion of hating someone to try to "cut them off" or "don't talk to them"), you've done some pretty...sketchy things in the past (think hard about that one), you turn your back on a lot of things very quickly (and it's not just the big thing, I can probably think of at least 20 off the top of my head, several relevant toward this wiki), you rarely acknowledge criticism in a good way (this is why I sometimes wonder why I try), sometimes your behavior gets wildly inappropriate (but such is the case with everyone), you can be very insensitive toward people (I think this is because you have your own emotional turmoil so you don't comprehend what everyone else's emotional issues truly are), and you get this notion that you cannot be wrong or you cannot be in trouble (kinda like this entire situation between you and me specifically: you blame me I blame you).
And just for the record, I'm not saying these things because this is why you'd be a bad admin, I've worked with you before (here, Monobook, LL/VGW, Pokémon, I feel there was somewhere else) and I know that both of us have rough patches and I know that you can still be a good admin. Like I said above, I changed my vote based on past experiences, you have more than the potential to do this, but I fear that these other issues may cause problems either with me or someone else. And this further goes to what I said above as well with maybe us working together on something like this can restart the friendship and actually fix the situation (cute how this is where we met each other : P), but in seriousness, though we've had our fights, I've loved working with you and I don't see why your behavior should make it stop, and personally, I'd just hate to see you go.

Before I get started on this: I am at an airport on my iPod so it doesn't work so great.

Honestly, this situation has proven that both Wattz and I are clearly not suit to be an admin at this current point in time. Give us a month or so to work together without rights and we can see from there. There is pretty much no need for you or I to pull or emotional issues onto this wiki. The reason that I want to cut you off, whether childish or not, is because you had become a negative aspect of my personal life and I no longer wanted you in it. Professional life and personal life are different matters, you being in my professional life is fine, personal is not. Honestly, this matter is starting to get out o hand and neither of us should be given rights in our current state. As I said, give us a month or so, then see.

I am so going to be hated for saying this, but I'm seriously more in favor of Wattz right now. Every time I say something you immediately go to blame Wattz. Sure, maybe Wattz shouldn't be pushing you in areas you don't want to be pushed, but that seems to be your only excuse right now.

Honestly, if this isn't taken care of by June, since I honestly have more experience and know Wattz better, I will probably give Wattz admin and bureaucrat rights by June 17th.

I don't want to be making it look like I'm taking sides here and totally going against you, but I honestly just have more trust in Wattz. I don't like saying that to your face (well, not literally :P), but honestly that's just what it's come down to. If you can prove to me otherwise (really, if BOTH of you can prove to me) that you can handle these situations and there won't be any of these problems, then I will grant you adminship. Honestly, though, we only need one bureaucrat, and my vision was to give that off to Wattz once I left, and that was honestly my plan a long time ago. If it happens to be that this wiki gains much more popularity and more admins at some point, then at least 2 may be necessary. But as for now, we only need one.

Wattz2000 (administrator/bureaucrat)

ends May 20, 2013

Hello, MarioWiki. : ) It's me, that guy who did stuff and now doesn't. : P Well, I aim to make that "doesn't," a "didn't." In other words, want back in the game so-to-speak. I feel that my leaving was kinda a bad move, this place needs an admin, and per RR's recent messages, he's leaving. : / SO, to start off this official RfA for his replacement, I would like to make a formal apology to the editors of the wiki for leaving. From the time I left, I was in an emotional rut in which I was kicked out of a group of friends, lost some personal acquaintances, was swamped with schoolwork, and lost my father on the first. : / With all of that, I simply could not edit, however, they say the best thing to do when you lose someone is to keep busy. I am very sorry for leaving the wiki the way I did, just too much sentimental value to this place to ever let it go. So, I have been trying to reengage myself in a wiki-reform. : P It's not that I want the rights, it's that I simply want to make sure the wiki gets a suitable replacement for its head bureaucrat. And now to show what I've done to deserve a position:

  • MarioWiki is the wiki I have the most edits on, being 16,347.
  • I have been editing Wikia since January of 2011, and have since made great friends even on this very wiki.
  • I have helped extensively in adding in articles when I first began.
  • I did a great deal of work re-categorizing articles, as well as licensing a very large sum of our images.
  • In this year, I worked on a large amount of our stub articles trying to get us to our spotlight, and sadly, I was one of the maybe 2 or 3 doing so at that time.
  • I am experienced in the ways of the wiki : P (I do not use RTE, I use Monobook, I run a bot active on other wikis, I have been an admin on nearly a dozen other wikis, and I know how to css stuff : P)
  • I have helped push forums and other aspects of the wiki's advertising and global image.
  • I was a trusted administrator here at MarioWiki for about 17 1/2 months, and in a good amount of that time, was a bureaucrat.
  • During my time of administrator, I cleaned the wiki up with deletions, licensing, categorizing, and some minor rewordings here and there at least once every week or other week from the last time I did it.
  • I know many of the users here and have befriended some of them from time to time, and I do try to gain some good relations with them.. Though RR will be leaving soon, it's sad to say we'll lose one of our best. You're gonna be missed, man.

Now, I may not be the best with words, but I will say that I'm qualified and that I should at least be an applicant for RR's replacement. Like I said, you will be missed, RR. It's tough to not edit around here anymore, and life's boring. : P So, I thought "what the hell," it might be time I came back, and I'm hopefully going to get better soon and with that edit soon. Thank you for your time, MarioWiki. The Puzzle Master 10:59, May 13, 2013 (UTC)

Support Support Obviously yes. --Rainbowroad6w, the researcher. (Talk)(GCWaves YouTube channel) 20:05, May 13, 2013 (UTC)

Oppose

Oppose Oppose Throw the "you're being biased" comments, whatever. But I'm actually doing this with sound mind and knowing that from what he has put in place, not just off-wiki but even in comments below, that he isn't suited. When you removed your rights, your reasoning was I'm sorry... but I can't be here at this time. And as shown in the comments below and from interacting with you after the passing of your father, you still allowed emotions to get the best of you. A big thing is that sometimes you do not listen. You very often wiki when in a bad place of mind. If you couldn't be here administrating the wiki last month, considering all that's been happening this month, I don't think you'd be able to take the task back on. And separating work from play also comes in in this case. DangerousDangerously 17:02, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

Obviously you don't know how life is when you lose someone close, do you? At the time I resigned, I was undergoing deep stress from both school and "friends," but the driving force of my resignation was the sentimental value of this place -- I love it. The problem with my resignation was that is was abrupt and unnoticed (I wasn't all that active at that time). Starting today, school's over. I was removed from those who I had thought were friends. And per what I don't know how many people tell me a good coping strategy keeping busy is, I can only try to work my hardest in what free time I have left. But regardless, you aren't using that "sound mind" either, you're using just as much feeling as I am here. The only issue with the whole "you can't let your emotions drive you" thing is simply that you need emotions to actually allow you to progress on something. You say I don't listen, but you don't either, or else probably, this situation wouldn't be happening. At all. Sometimes being on-wiki when in a bad state of mind works, and once again, I'm not the only one... The Puzzle Master 22:48, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

I've lost multiple people close to me, so don't try to claim that. DangerousDangerously 22:55, May 16, 2013 (UTC)
