Candidate statement[edit]

Well... wow, first, thanks Poke, it's good to know such a well-respected contributor backs me up (and you too, Anja, don't think I missed your message :)). I'm sure most, if not all, of the people who take part in RfAs know who I am, what I stand for, what I've done, and all that. I've made a bit under 10,000 contributions between GWW and GW2W (according to my preferences). According to Poke's awesome contrib checker tool, I have 7776 contributions on GWW, 7777 when I save this. Now, obviously, it's quality, not quantity for contributions, and the number really doesn't matter. I was very active in the heyday of the inventory icons project. I also tagged hundreds, probably thousands, of images in a project with Wyn that allowed us to make galleries of skill icons. I've always been one to watch RC and revert vandalism, especially in the days of the move vandal and the gibberbots. If I do garner enough support to become sysop, I definitely intend to take a look at the ArenaNet namespace and see how I can help (if I'm needed there). Anyways, I'm not exactly a public speaker, and you all probably have an opinion of me from what you've seen on the wiki, so I'll end my ranting and let you think for yourselves.

  1. Support. I don't think I need to say much; just that Calor will be a great sysop :) poke | talk 23:53, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
  2. Support. I believe Calor will continue to work for the benefit of this wiki, and the tools will make it easier. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 23:56, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
  3. Support. Calor is quite the helpful member of the community. With the sysop tools in hand, I think that he'll be able to help us even more. Best of luck, Calor! --User Wandering Traveler Oie User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Wandering Traveler 00:09, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  4. Support. Calor has demonstrated many times that he is an active, helpful and competent member of the wiki. He will actively use the sysop tools for the betterment of the wiki and the community. Anyone who believes that he is not active enough to become a sysop only proves how little they themselves are on the wiki. Lord Belar 02:13, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  5. Support. Calor has demonstrated time and time again that he is intelligent, mature, and open-minded; I have no doubt that he will make an excellent Sysop, and the fact that he always seems to be watching GWW doesn't hurt either. User Defiant Elements Sig Image.JPG *Defiant Elements* +talk 03:06, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  6. Support. To be honest, already thought he was a sysop. -- Salome User salome sig.png 03:13, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  7. Support. Agreed with ab ove comments --ShadowphoenixPlease, talk to me; I'm so lonely ;-; 04:26, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  8. Support. It is time, I'm sure he's learned quite a bit and matured as well. --TalkPeople of Antioch 06:04, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  9. Support. Calor has definitely shown he can be trusted now. It's time. :) - anja talk 07:07, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  10. Indeed. --Silverleaf User_talk:Silverleaf 07:11, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  11. Calor has shown his work to me when i looked at his userpage for 1 minute. It took me that long to see all his projects on his list. That not good enough for a sysop? --Burning Freebies 07:48, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  12. Support - Calor will not abuse the tools, and the wiki will benefit from his having them. Ale_Jrb (talk) 09:08, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  13. Support. I remember Calor as very level headed in all policy discussions. --Xeeron 09:46, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  14. Support. Yes please :P -- User indochine dsk tree.png Indochine talk 09:47, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  15. Support. Calor has presented himself as a calm and level-headed person. -- User Sig.png 13:59, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  16. Support. Calor has been here for a long while and is a very mature person. I feel he would make a good addition to the team. Dominator Matrix 14:44, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  17. Support. No idea if I qualify for voting, but I thought he was already a sysop tbh. :\ —User Warwick Signature.png Warwick 15:26, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  18. Support. Really, is there any reason not to? ;) Kokuou 20:50, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  19. Support. Sticks out as a very admin-worthy user. — Skakid 20:52, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  20. Support. Definitely admin material. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(talk) 04:46, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
  21. Support. Calor knows what's happening on the wiki. I can only agree with Poke, Wyn and DE. TalkWhy 21:37, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
  22. Support. Calor has shown he is level headed & calm in discussions and would make a good addition to the sysop team. --Kakarot Talk 22:10, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
  23. Umm, sure? — Eloc 02:19, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
  24. Support. Calor looks at issues progressively. I like what this person has done. :) (Terra Xin 11:15, 6 September 2008 (UTC))
  25. Support. Despite Calor not being one of the most active members lately, i have to agree to all comments above. I'm also grateful for his previous contributions as those he stated in his comment for example, and i'm quite sure we can look forward to helpful future doings of him. —ZerphatalkThe Improver 11:30, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
  26. Support. Again my support isn't really needed, neither for adding something nor for count reasons. Still, I add my support to the list. — Galil Talk page 11:45, 6 September 2008 (UTC)


  1. Oppose He doesn't seem to be active enough to be a sysop. Dominator Matrix 00:05, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
  2. Basically what Backsword said, but with a little more focus on the now. I haven't seen anything recently that would make me detest your sysophood, but I've also seen nothing that would make me more comfortable with it, either. Since that doesn't even out to a neutral vote, I'm inclined to oppose. -Auron 12:03, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
  3. ...


  1. The events that would disqualify Calor is all well in the past. But I haven't seen that much of him lately. Backsword 09:16, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
