Personalizing[edit]

You know I was thinking, this page is directly linked to the Destinypedia Administration team, and it is always linked to our team. So why not personalize this page, spice it up a bit so that it looks like a team page rather than a dull list? I mean we can format it really nice, Spartacus can add some specialized templates like the other awesome ones he makes, and Dante can put pics and logos of each member along with a little intro giving a quick flavor text about each of the members. It doesn't have to go the way I mentioned of course, but this page does represent all of us, so why not make it look a little more inviting to those who come here seeking our assistance. Perhaps any of you guys have an opinion on the matter? Arcmind (talk) 22:11, 10 November 2016 (EST)

Like how Halopedia has it set up? It's not a bad idea, to be honest. But Destinypedia does have more "categories" of administrator than Halopedia, so I'm not sure how it'll go. --Dante the Ghost (talk) 22:20, 10 November 2016 (EST)
More or less. However i was thinking more organized and user friendly. For example, we could make a simple list with the profile pics of each Admin Bureaucrat etc. along with a quote or quick description and a contact them link...Or something along those lines.

I'm open to this idea. But, we can stick to just listing it as "admins", for simplicity sake.--Spartacus TalkContribs 23:03, 10 November 2016 (EST)
Naturally we leave the labels as they are. I was merely suggesting we reformat the page to make things look more user friendly and lively. Does this mean we are all at a consensus on this? Arcmind (talk) 23:08, 10 November 2016 (EST)
Sure, I can start working on it tomorrow (11/11).--Spartacus TalkContribs 23:15, 10 November 2016 (EST)
Roger that! I'll be on the lookout and to add those flavor texts. --Dante the Ghost (talk) 23:16, 10 November 2016 (EST)
Great! Thanks to both of you. I am sure this page will look amazing when we are through with it. :) Arcmind (talk) 23:20, 10 November 2016 (EST)

Alright, it's done. Feel free to fill out your box!--Spartacus TalkContribs 12:43, 11 November 2016 (EST)

Thanks! I was working on the page earlier when I lost internet access and it was lost. I also was thinking to merge all of the rank pages into this one as a big administration page. Is that okay? Arcmind (talk) 13:20, 11 November 2016 (EST)

Nah, that page should stay as its own, like Halopedia. --Dante the Ghost (talk) 13:22, 11 November 2016 (EST)

I know that, but there is but one sentence for most of these pages, and if we merge them into subsections of one page titled Administration team or something along those lines, it encompasses all of the collective ranks that fill out that role. It would make it look more organized and thought out versus having stubs everywhere. It might make things easier to find instead of having to check four or five different pages.

There's something wrong with how Primus' bio is formatted. Can it be moved beneath the others so his doesn't look all squished? --Dante the Ghost (talk) 14:41, 11 November 2016 (EST)
I'm going to restore the previous format as that looked better visually. I also agree that we don't need to explain every user right on this page, that's what the links at the top are for. This should just be a general information guide on what admins are and what they do.--Spartacus TalkContribs 14:47, 11 November 2016 (EST)
Sounds good to me. There are those links after all. As time goes on, I believe they'll become more comprehensive. --Dante the Ghost (talk) 14:50, 11 November 2016 (EST)

MorningWalker's Adminship[edit]

As seen here, he hasn't made an edit since October (nearly four months, standard wiki practice for demotion is three). I am going to demote him on the basis of inactivity to a patroller, but want to make everyone else aware before I proceed. I will also leave him a talk page message concerning this, with the assurance that should he return to activity, he will be given his rights back.--Spartacus TalkContribs 21:46, 21 February 2017 (EST)

Titan66's Adminship[edit]

How do I become an administrator like you guys? -- Titan66 (talk) 15:20, 13 September 2017 (EDT)

We typically add admins on as-needed basis, which at the moment there really isn't a need. Regardless though, I'll talk to the other admins about this.--Spartacus TalkContribs 17:19, 13 September 2017 (EDT)
