Forums: Index > Wiki proposals and applications > Moderator Request - Yes-Man

Hi there! I'm Yes-Man, as you should already know if you've found your way here. I'm a chat moderator on the Vault, and as the forum title would suggest I would like to apply to moderatorship. I've been active since June 14 of this year and so far I have made an effort to positively contribute to this wiki every day. So far, I've made over 500 article edits, and I try my best to fight back at vandalism whenever it arises. One of my biggest accomplishments here at the Vault was helping fellow editor BillyOcean create the Nightkin subcategory, grouping all the Nightkin characters of the series in one place, and allowing easier access to their respective pages.

Anyway, enough about that. I am applying for moderator for the fact that it would make reverting bad edits a whole lot easier. There have been many times where myself and a few other users have had to constantly revert vandalism due to the fact that there were no administrators around. Sometimes it can be very difficult to revert the edits repeatedly, and by the time the edit has been reverted plenty more pages have been vandalised. Because of my time zone (Melbourne, Australia) I am usually up when most of the active administrators are unavailable. This means I have to sometimes wait a very long time to report vandalism, and I believe that with rollback rights it will make reverting the bad edits a whole lot easier while I wait for an administrator to arrive.

Apart from my edits, my major contributions to the Vault include:

  • Helping BillyOcean in creating the Nightkin category page.
  • Moderating the Vault Chat.
  • Patrolling the recent changes to make sure no bad edits are being made.
  • Reverting and reporting vandals.

I am also an administrator on the Fallout Answers wiki, and an administrator on the Vault Armory wiki.

About me

I try to be polite and friendly to users, especially new users, and attempt to help people if they need it. If I see something I do not agree with, I will inform another user or make my complaint on the article's talk page, so that the issue can be resolved. I understand people have different opinions and beliefs, and I respect that and am open to hearing their point of view. You can read more on my userpage here.
Thank you for reading. Please vote honestly, and most of all have a good day.

  • yesIcon check Every time I have come across Yes Man he has been extremely polite, and also diligent in his work. In FA for example, he cleared around 700 pages manually, that takes dedication, and Yes Man has just such dedication. TheGuardianCalligraphyGuardianoftheWastesTag
