Hi, my name is Leon Davis. I have been active here for over a year, I am an active user, know a lot about the GTA series, I am vigilant about vandalism and spam, and I am very capable using grammar and spelling.  I'm also admin on another wiki, so I was hoping to be Patroller here.

Hi, I am Smashbro8. I have already requested for promotion to be a patroller early this year in January. However, I have failed to become a patroller, due to the fact that I did not understand the Image Policy and did not know right from wrong on the wiki. However, I have now understood these clearly and now always take a look at the Image Policy before I upload any images. I have also warned certain users about the Image Policy when another patroller was not currently active on the wiki. I have also protected the wiki from vandalism such as undoing edits by vandals and reporting them to patrollers or admins. I am a very civil user and will warn users for uncivil behavior. If they continue to behave such ways, I will report them to an admin and have them be blocked. Another reason why I believe I should be a patroller is because I always keep GTA Wiki up and am always checking it, even if I do not edit at the moment. I also believe that vandals attempt to ruin the wiki when admins and patrollers are not active, for I have seen vandalism occuring several times around midnight or early morning (such as 7:00 am or earlier). I have also created many successful pages on the wiki such as [[Designer Slave]], the [[Paleto Forest Sawmill]], [[Famous Hamburgers]], [[Golden Buns Bakery]], the [[Clucking Bell Farms]], [[Craig Connor]], [[Ian Scott McGregor]], [[Palomino Avenue]], [[Rex's Diner]], [[Horny's Burgers]], and many more. I am currently homeschooled so I am available to patrol the wiki at any time possible, even when admins and patrollers are not available. I hope that this request is successful enough. Thank you for taking your time to read this. [[Image:Smashbro8-Sig-pt1.png|90px|link=User:Smashbro8|Smashbro8]] ([[Image:Smashbro8-Sig-pt2.png|50px|link=User talk:Smashbro8|Talk]]) 02:53, April 26, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

*I have known you for so long, Smashbro. And I realise that you have good potential to be a staff member. You follow our policy and also remain civil. That's what makes good material for a patroller, my friend. [[User:Carl Johnson Jr.|Carl Johnson Jr.]] ([[User talk:Carl Johnson Jr.|talk]]) 03:52, April 26, 2014 (UTC)

*You're a good editor, you report vandals, you present the reasons why you think you should earn yourself patrollership...I'm giving you a positive vote. - [[User:Mikey Klebbitz|Mikey Klebbitz]] ([[User talk:Mikey Klebbitz|talk]]) 09:55, April 26, 2014 (UTC)

*It took me a while to make my decision on this one. Smashbro definately has enough edits and is active enough to be a patroller, but as bureaucrats have said in the past : just because there is a staff position open, doesn't mean it should be filled right away. Smashbro and I have gotten in multiple disagreements on blog posts based off our conflicting opinions on Saints Row and GTA. He has apologized for this which I accept fully, but someone who downtalks GTA V along with IV and highly endorses the Saints Row series (a GTA clone) I just don't think should really be a patroller. You can even see Saints Row stuff on his profile. Any GTA Wiki staff member should have a strong passion for the GTA series and shouldn't try to uptalk an obvious clone of a game which is the subject of this wiki. I don't dislike Smashbro, but I just can't see myself voting yes for someone who endorses a GTA clone as much as he does. Its nothing personal, its just gaming.

*After seeing how Smashbro has handled this situation with that vandal, I'm 100% convinced that he has the capability of being an amazing patroller (even though he's a SR lover). :)  [[User:Boomer8|Boomer8]] ([[User talk:Boomer8|talk]]) 05:37, April 30, 2014 (UTC)
  +
*Boomer, don't vote 'no' just because "he likes Saints Row over GTA" - that's not a valid reason. It's not important if one prefers SR over GTA or vice-versa. Just because Smashbro was disappointed with one or two games doesn't mean he dislikes the series. McJeff too disliked the post-GTA III Era games; was that ever a problem? Of course not! In the end what matters is that Smashbro is a good editor with some brilliant contributes. -- '''[[User:Ilan xd|ILan]] (<small>[[User talk:Ilan xd|XD]] &bull; [[Special:Contributions/Ilan xd|Edits]] &bull; [[w:c:rockstargames|Home]] </small>)''' 14:55, May 2, 2014 (UTC)

===Carl Johnson Jr. - Patroller===
   
Hi, My name is Kingrhem and I'm asking for Patroller rights to make this wiki clean from any errors . I have a hundred edits on this wiki, my grammar is very good and I have been a active for about month. I'm available for 10 hours a day. And I know a-lot about the GTA Series.[[User:Kingrhem|Kingrhem]] ([[User talk:Kingrhem|talk]]) 14:03, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm Carl Johnson Jr! After doing more than 2,500 edits on this wiki, I've decided that it's time to rise up as a patroller. I tend to patrol this wiki several times throughout the day. When I first joined, I mostly made edits about grammar, punctuation, etc. When [[Grand Theft Auto V]] came out, I was shocked at how many articles were still not made/cleaned up. I was inspired by how well written the [[Liberty City (HD Universe)]] articles were written, so I modelled my style of writing towards them. I'm responsible for adding details and better descriptions in articles like [[Paleto Bay]], along with adding new images. I also made various articles like [[Puerto Del Sol]]. The random page button also helps me clean up the wiki overall, and also allows me to suggest to admins on changing some page names I find. I feel that I'm ready to make a jump to patroller. Thank you for taking your time to read this! [[User:Carl Johnson Jr.|Carl Johnson Jr.]] ([[User talk:Carl Johnson Jr.|talk]]) 17:35, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

*One month and 100 edits isn't enough to qualify someone for patroller on a high-activity wiki like this one. Three months and 500 edits maybe. <b>[[User:McJeff|Jeff]]</b> ([[User_talk:McJeff|talk]]|[[Special:Contributions/McJeff|stalk]]) 14:18, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

*I think you'd have more chances if you applied next month with at least 500 edits.

*As below, with the request that also failed, you haven't been on here long enough. I agree with McJeff in that I don't think you're worthy for promotion until you've been on here for about three months. Also, your grammar doesn't appear to be quite as good as you say; even your request paragraph has a few errors that, if I saw them on an information page, I would cringe at and take time to correct. Try again later in the year. - [[User:NikoBellicsBoss11|NikoBellicsBoss11]] ([[User talk:NikoBellicsBoss11|talk]]) 22:01, June 12, 2013 (UTC)
 
*Around 250 to 400 edits are enough to meet Patroller prerequisites, but they need to be good quality edits, not just adding a letters to a word or commenting on blogs. Don't go AWOL after you read this and edit a lot and try to apply again because that will show that you just want the position without any reasons. Keep up the good edits and help. Try to apply again in a month or so. [[User:Tony 1998|Mr. T., That&#39;s Me!]] ([[User talk:Tony 1998|talk]]) 00:02, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

Hi I am Smashbro8! I am a common editor on this wiki and I would like to be a patroller on the wiki. I have been on this wiki from since June 2013/July 2013. I started off as a minor editor but I began to help out the wiki with other stuff, specifically stuff containing Grand Theft Auto V. I've also created pages on my own such as [[Horny's Burgers]], the [[Paleto Forest Sawmill]], [[Designer Slave]], [[Palomino Avenue]], and [[Rex's Diner]]. I would like to be a patroller because I enjoy this wiki. Also, the wiki is randomly attacked by vandals, uncivil users, etc. I constantly watch over the wiki 24/7, however I am hesitant about undoing edits, and warning users due to my lack of staff powers and I also am not sure when I am correct or wrong. I also think that there should a patroller to patrol the wiki during the early morning and late nights, since I see this time as the time for editors to make nonsense on the page. I do not go to public school, and I am homeschooled, giving me the time to do work and look over the wiki as often as possible. I am a very helpful editor and am also very close to many editors on the wiki, making it easy for us to work together on stuff. I am also a good admin, as seen on Wii Wiki and Driv3r Wiki from the "My Favorite Wikis" section of my user page, however, I'll leave that for another year. Let me know what you all think! Thanks! [[User:Smashbro8|Smashbro8]] ([[User talk:Smashbro8|talk]]) 21:48, January 26, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8
   
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Instulent and I would like to be promoted as a patroller on the GTA Wiki. I've been on this wiki for almost a month, have done 1,100+ edits and counting and not one day with out editing. I have reported a few people who have either trolled etc to admins and I get along well with almost everyone on this wiki. I am a positive person who will do anything to a help a wiki out.

*'''No''' - Simply not qualified, considering that we decided we need to be much more selective about promoting people to patroller after a couple got promoted on "I edit a lot" without actually knowing the rules. You say "I am hesitant about undoing edits, and warning users due to my lack of staff powers and I also am not sure when I am correct or wrong" - If you don't know whether you're right or wrong you should be asking other editors and making posts on the article talk pages. I notice your images don't follow [[GTA Wiki:Image Policy]]. You also say there's heavy vandalism, but it's actually lighter than usual and hasn't been severe enough for anyone to bother bringing it to the attention of any of the bureaucrats.<br />This isn't a "never" vote. If you're interested in becoming a patroller, the bureaucrats are usually glad to help teach new users learn what they need to do to get promoted, and plenty of editors have failed their first request for promotion and been promoted later. However, speaking for myself I intend to be very careful about promoting underqualified users. <b>[[User:McJeff|Jeff]]</b> ([[User_talk:McJeff|talk]]|[[Special:Contributions/McJeff|stalk]]) 22:17, January 26, 2014 (UTC)

*@McJeff. I clearly understand where you are coming from. Somethings I have written wrong in my request. I will undo edits and there are many times me, Cloudkit01 and other users had to report users to The Tom. The wiki does be under attack sometimes by vandals and other types of uncivil users and I have made reports to The Tom about them several times. Also, I try my best to follow the Image Policy, which however, is rather confusing to me. Sorry! [[User:Smashbro8|Smashbro8]] ([[User talk:Smashbro8|talk]]) 22:21, January 26, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

*One thing that I noticed is how cooperatively and friendly you are. You helped us a lot since the release of GTA V. I can consider your edits very useful and meaningful, but I'll have to disagree with few aspects: Actually you don't need/should hesitate when undoing edits, because the matter is, as a patroller, hence the name, you're patrolling the Wiki. This means, you should know the difference between what's right and what's wrong, this can be clearly explained if you read all of our [[GTA Wiki:Policy|policies]]. And about the image policy, this is a serious subject and should be followed. Even if I control the edits and images, someone who has been around here for months should know this. So, before closing the comment, I'll need to be sure you're respecting the following subjects:
  +
  +
:::Our [[GTA Wiki:Image Policy|image policy]].
  +
:::Know how to intervene in a [[GTA Wiki:Disputes|dispute]].
  +
:::When and how to [[Help:Reverting|revert]].
  +
  +
If you're able to accomplish this, then I'm sure you're able to be a patroller. --'''[[User:Thomas0802|Thomas0802]] • ([[User talk:Thomas0802|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/Thomas0802|edits]])''' 22:17, January 31, 2014 (UTC)

Welcome to GTA Wiki:Requests for Promotion.

You may apply for Rollback Rights or Administrator privileges on this noticeboard. To do so, you must meet the prerequisites, and then state what position you are looking for and why you think you need the rollback and/or administrator tools.

Requests for Oversight and Checkuser must be done at Wikia Central (and they'll probably be declined).

Rollback is a tool that allows users to quickly revert vandalism.

Administrators have the power to block and ban users, protect pages, move images, and delete pages and images, in addition to rollback.

To qualify for rollback rights, editors must have been active for two months with no rules violations. Rollbackers must receive a 60% 'yes' percentage to be promoted.

To qualify for administrator rights, editors must have been active for four months with no rules violations. Administrators must receive a 70% 'yes' percentage to be promoted. Those applying for adminship will likely be asked questions on how they deal with certain situations. This is to see if a user has the capabilities of being an administrator.

Editors with rollback and administrator experience on other wikis are encouraged to apply, and based on the editor in question exceptions may be made to the length of time editing required for promotion.

When applying for promotion, a community vote will take place. Voting lasts 7 days, although it may be allowed to run shorter (in the case of an obvious pass/fail) or longer (in the case of a very close vote) at bureaucrat discretion. Only bureaucrats should close votes.

Application users who are caught tampering with other users votes, such as changing a no to a yes, will have their request closed immediately.

Please submit your requests at the top of the "Active requests" page subsection.

Requests where the voting has finished can be found at

Leon Davis - PatrollerEdit

Hi, my name is Leon Davis. I have been active here for over a year, I am an active user, know a lot about the GTA series, I am vigilant about vandalism and spam, and I am very capable using grammar and spelling.  I'm also admin on another wiki, so I was hoping to be Patroller here.

Smashbro8- PatrollerEdit

Closed 17:55, May 2, 2014 (UTC) as Successful - Tom Talk

Hi, I am Smashbro8. I have already requested for promotion to be a patroller early this year in January. However, I have failed to become a patroller, due to the fact that I did not understand the Image Policy and did not know right from wrong on the wiki. However, I have now understood these clearly and now always take a look at the Image Policy before I upload any images. I have also warned certain users about the Image Policy when another patroller was not currently active on the wiki. I have also protected the wiki from vandalism such as undoing edits by vandals and reporting them to patrollers or admins. I am a very civil user and will warn users for uncivil behavior. If they continue to behave such ways, I will report them to an admin and have them be blocked. Another reason why I believe I should be a patroller is because I always keep GTA Wiki up and am always checking it, even if I do not edit at the moment. I also believe that vandals attempt to ruin the wiki when admins and patrollers are not active, for I have seen vandalism occuring several times around midnight or early morning (such as 7:00 am or earlier). I have also created many successful pages on the wiki such as Designer Slave, the Paleto Forest Sawmill, Famous HamburgersGolden Buns Bakery, the Clucking Bell FarmsCraig ConnorIan Scott McGregorPalomino AvenueRex's DinerHorny's Burgers, and many more. I am currently homeschooled so I am available to patrol the wiki at any time possible, even when admins and patrollers are not available. I hope that this request is successful enough. Thank you for taking your time to read this. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 02:53, April 26, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

  • I have known you for so long, Smashbro. And I realise that you have good potential to be a staff member. You follow our policy and also remain civil. That's what makes good material for a patroller, my friend. Carl Johnson Jr. (talk) 03:52, April 26, 2014 (UTC)
  • You're a good editor, you report vandals, you present the reasons why you think you should earn yourself patrollership...I'm giving you a positive vote. - Mikey Klebbitz (talk) 09:55, April 26, 2014 (UTC)
  • You are very active and have made many contributions to the wiki. I can not think of a better candidate for Patroller. Sasquatch101 (talk) 02:49, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
  • It took me a while to make my decision on this one. Smashbro definately has enough edits and is active enough to be a patroller, but as bureaucrats have said in the past : just because there is a staff position open, doesn't mean it should be filled right away. Smashbro and I have gotten in multiple disagreements on blog posts based off our conflicting opinions on Saints Row and GTA. He has apologized for this which I accept fully, but someone who downtalks GTA V along with IV and highly endorses the Saints Row series (a GTA clone) I just don't think should really be a patroller. You can even see Saints Row stuff on his profile. Any GTA Wiki staff member should have a strong passion for the GTA series and shouldn't try to uptalk an obvious clone of a game which is the subject of this wiki. I don't dislike Smashbro, but I just can't see myself voting yes for someone who endorses a GTA clone as much as he does. Its nothing personal, its just gaming. Boomer8 (talk) 06:07, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
  • After seeing how Smashbro has handled this situation with that vandal, I'm 100% convinced that he has the capability of being an amazing patroller (even though he's a SR lover). :)  Boomer8 (talk) 05:37, April 30, 2014 (UTC)
  • Boomer, don't vote 'no' just because "he likes Saints Row over GTA" - that's not a valid reason. It's not important if one prefers SR over GTA or vice-versa. Just because Smashbro was disappointed with one or two games doesn't mean he dislikes the series. McJeff too disliked the post-GTA III Era games; was that ever a problem? Of course not! In the end what matters is that Smashbro is a good editor with some brilliant contributes. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 14:55, May 2, 2014 (UTC)

Carl Johnson Jr. - PatrollerEdit

Closed 22:32, February 9, 2014 (UTC) as Successful

Hello, I'm Carl Johnson Jr! After doing more than 2,500 edits on this wiki, I've decided that it's time to rise up as a patroller. I tend to patrol this wiki several times throughout the day. When I first joined, I mostly made edits about grammar, punctuation, etc. When Grand Theft Auto V came out, I was shocked at how many articles were still not made/cleaned up. I was inspired by how well written the Liberty City (HD Universe) articles were written, so I modelled my style of writing towards them. I'm responsible for adding details and better descriptions in articles like Paleto Bay, along with adding new images. I also made various articles like Puerto Del Sol. The random page button also helps me clean up the wiki overall, and also allows me to suggest to admins on changing some page names I find. I feel that I'm ready to make a jump to patroller. Thank you for taking your time to read this! Carl Johnson Jr. (talk) 17:35, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

Smashbro8- PatrollerEdit

Closed 17:00, February 5, 2014 (UTC) as Unsuccessful - Tom Talk

Hi I am Smashbro8! I am a common editor on this wiki and I would like to be a patroller on the wiki. I have been on this wiki from since June 2013/July 2013. I started off as a minor editor but I began to help out the wiki with other stuff, specifically stuff containing Grand Theft Auto V. I've also created pages on my own such as Horny's Burgers, the Paleto Forest SawmillDesigner SlavePalomino Avenue, and Rex's Diner. I would like to be a patroller because I enjoy this wiki. Also, the wiki is randomly attacked by vandals, uncivil users, etc. I constantly watch over the wiki 24/7, however I am hesitant about undoing edits, and warning users due to my lack of staff powers and I also am not sure when I am correct or wrong. I also think that there should a patroller to patrol the wiki during the early morning and late nights, since I see this time as the time for editors to make nonsense on the page. I do not go to public school, and I am homeschooled, giving me the time to do work and look over the wiki as often as possible. I am a very helpful editor and am also very close to many editors on the wiki, making it easy for us to work together on stuff. I am also a good admin, as seen on Wii Wiki and Driv3r Wiki from the "My Favorite Wikis" section of my user page, however, I'll leave that for another year. Let me know what you all think! Thanks! Smashbro8 (talk) 21:48, January 26, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

VotesEdit

  • No - Simply not qualified, considering that we decided we need to be much more selective about promoting people to patroller after a couple got promoted on "I edit a lot" without actually knowing the rules. You say "I am hesitant about undoing edits, and warning users due to my lack of staff powers and I also am not sure when I am correct or wrong" - If you don't know whether you're right or wrong you should be asking other editors and making posts on the article talk pages. I notice your images don't follow GTA Wiki:Image Policy. You also say there's heavy vandalism, but it's actually lighter than usual and hasn't been severe enough for anyone to bother bringing it to the attention of any of the bureaucrats.
    This isn't a "never" vote. If you're interested in becoming a patroller, the bureaucrats are usually glad to help teach new users learn what they need to do to get promoted, and plenty of editors have failed their first request for promotion and been promoted later. However, speaking for myself I intend to be very careful about promoting underqualified users. Jeff (talk|stalk) 22:17, January 26, 2014 (UTC)
  • Yes No - LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 12:38, January 31, 2014 (UTC)

CommentsEdit

  • @McJeff. I clearly understand where you are coming from. Somethings I have written wrong in my request. I will undo edits and there are many times me, Cloudkit01 and other users had to report users to The Tom. The wiki does be under attack sometimes by vandals and other types of uncivil users and I have made reports to The Tom about them several times. Also, I try my best to follow the Image Policy, which however, is rather confusing to me. Sorry! Smashbro8 (talk) 22:21, January 26, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8
  • I know that there may be many problems, but just look at Thomas0802, he wasn't perfect at first but he's gradually gotten better. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 12:38, January 31, 2014 (UTC)
  • One thing that I noticed is how cooperatively and friendly you are. You helped us a lot since the release of GTA V. I can consider your edits very useful and meaningful, but I'll have to disagree with few aspects: Actually you don't need/should hesitate when undoing edits, because the matter is, as a patroller, hence the name, you're patrolling the Wiki. This means, you should know the difference between what's right and what's wrong, this can be clearly explained if you read all of our policies. And about the image policy, this is a serious subject and should be followed. Even if I control the edits and images, someone who has been around here for months should know this. So, before closing the comment, I'll need to be sure you're respecting the following subjects:
Our image policy.
Know how to intervene in a dispute.
When and how to revert.

If you're able to accomplish this, then I'm sure you're able to be a patroller. --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 22:17, January 31, 2014 (UTC)
