  16. Knife (talk) 11:32, 19 January 2008 (EST) I'm going to try to give an honest reason instead of the "Blitzwing is cool" reason. From what I've seen, Blitzwing is more active than these other candidates, both in the forums and on wiki (and remember, the forums have some exclusive people that otherwise don't edit on MarioWiki, so a connection to the forums would be one of his biggest assets). Whereas previously directors were more concerned with finding someone to fill in a position and less strict, Blitz will probably seek out old writers instead and will be more lenient. And syntax knowledge is useless if you barely have any writers. Of course, I wish there could be two directors so that one could be good at recruiting people (Blitz) and one could be good at syntax (Wayo).

  18. Boop Explosive Pants Modifier What a stupid name!

Wayoshi

  1. Alphaclaw11
  2. My Bloody Valentine Changed my mind. Wayo seems a bit better for the job.
  3. ~Uniju(T-C-E) If I'm not mistaken, he's done this before, and has experience doing it, so I don't see why someone else would be any better for the job...
  4. i can trust wayoshi
  5. Stooben Rooben This is the guy. He'll take care of things. This is the guy. He'll take care of things. Oh wait, I already said that...

FG2, a spammer for director?-- Xpike the hedgehog

( FG2-ness

Even though Blitzwing is very hated by most, I think he would be the best choice. GrodenE T C El

Yes. Fg2 spams too much. >_>

MEANIE! FG2-ness


You guys can't just sign up cuz it'd be cool! Doing this will take alot of responsibility, A role fit for a blitzwing.

Master Crash

Indeed. Everyone else does not seem too trusworthy. 3dhammer.gif 3D, AAAaaaAAAH! 3dhammer.gif

Never mind. BLOC PARTIER.

He's just... More trustworthy.

Master Crash

Gotcha. Wait... :P BLOC PARTIER.

I have a couple of questions for you, Blitz. Do you know the complex syntax required? Specifically, there's headers & footers for every 'Shroom page to make it "official" (which I created). Sure you can copy & paste, but the author needs to be changed, and noincludes also for the single-page, and full page inclusions using template syntax. Also, would you be able to help get the 'Shroom back on track? It's completely phailing right now; we need to recruit new writers for the old jobs or it will die before 2009 comes around. If I'm elected I plan to ask around again, and explain how simple it is to write for it, it's really just an hour one day a month, for most articles.

That goes for everyone, really – the next director needs to be strong enough that s/he will advertise around the wiki, forums etc. and get either old or new writers to put together a full, not half-issue like XI. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 20:23, 13 January 2008 (EST)

Wayo is a good choice. He is smart, nice, mature, responcible, dedicated, and understands the work put into this, and has been part of the shroom. I feel the reason he is doing this is to help the shroom not for himself. Alphaclaw11

3d: you really can't say that unless you have a good knoledge of that User Because me and InfectedShrom are majorly trusted Who voted FG2 He's like super Spam Man. Luigibros2

THAT'S DISRESPECTFUL!FG2-ness

Aw Crap, now i don't know who to pick, i guess i'll just stay with Blitz.

Master Crash

Wayoshi: Yes... I admit it.

I don't know much about wiki syntax. However, I can still learn it via the help pages and the Sandbox. Maybe I can't do it today, but maybe I can do it tommorow.

About revigorating the Shroom... I have a few ideas on how to do it, althought I will maybe need the help of the administrative staff. --Blitzwing 16:15, 14 January 2008 (EST)

Let's give Blitz a chance. Wayoshi already was the director; he gave up the title. Let's let this run out. LuigiBros: I really don't think you're the best choice. Your grammar is deplorable, even worse than Blitzwing's; I have no idea how much syntax you know and you are not very active. InfectedShroom: I already apologized. :( Blitzwing seems to have the drive to do this; as well as being quite active and being quite well-known. And since when has knowing syntax been needed? CUTTING and PASTING. That's all that's needed. 3dhammer.gif 3D, sign up for the Fake News, too! 3dhammer.gif

Thank you 3D, you are being very supportive.

Blitzwing

How 'bout Co-director?

Master Crash

Hmmm... Meh. BLOC PARTIER.

Can someone pick me, just because I am a newbie does not mean I'm not a good choice!-KP Shadow

  1. ' ' 'X' ' ' i want to be Director i vote for Blitzwing but hes a great chioce if i dont win

MasterAsh1 for The'Shroom Director(~).

I've been to Nintendo World!!-KP Shadow

Dude, don't take this offense, but, you do not know syntax very well, and The 'Shroom needs someone who is good at syntax, who can orginize and settle anything to do with The 'Shroom. Even so, thus, you must be good at wikis and not just because you've been to Nintendo World. GrodenE T C El Sorry.

Also I'm the co-director for EVERYONE exept for myself- KP Shadow

I give up, I'll just be Blitzwing's co-director- KP Shadow

What? That's not what i was talking about, like Wayoshi and Blitz are co-directors.

Master Crash

I'm always editing Wikipedia, in fact I am an expert when it comes to wikis, exept for the fact that I don't know what syntax is, but I'm a quick learner.- KP Shadow

In fact I can learn how to syntax from my uncle, since he is the manager of a Best Buy location.- KP Shadow

I...don't think you can learn syntax from Best Buy. Paperjorgesp.png Paper Jorge Paperjorgesp.png Unless it's a Best Buy Wiki.

No, I mean that he knows a lot about technology and programming, so he could teach me how to syntax. Oh, yeah, scince I'm Blitzwing's co-director, and he won, I'm co-director now. :P- KP Shadow

First of all, i was talking about wayoshi and blitzwing, not you, your not co-director, it was just an idea i threw out.

Master Crash

Heh, at least I got one vote. :P BLOC PARTIER. CONGRATS!

I did too. FG2-ness

Look, Master Crash, just let me be co-director, it would only take me a few minutes for me to learn syntax, I rarely ever get any glory in real life and it is quickly couneracted, and I'm dot doing it just for the glory, I want to contribute to The 'Shroom, by creating more sections such as product reviews, a self help section, a posts to the director and the co-director, and a character creator to name a few.- KP Shadow

I...don't really think you have what it takes to be at least co-director, no offense. Paperjorgesp.png Paper Jorge Paperjorgesp.png Plus, you don't have any votes.

I HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE CO-DIRECTOR- KP Shadow

No need to yell. First, learn how to make a sig that links to your user page. It can be done by typing ~~~. Paperjorgesp.png Paper Jorge Paperjorgesp.png And sorry, but you need to learn more, young grasshoper.

Why didn't anyone vote for me? FG2-ness

You're a spammer. I'm sorry but you are. No offense. Paperjorgesp.png Paper Jorge Paperjorgesp.png

To tell the truth, I was gonna change my vote, cuz I only voted for FG2 to help him, but eh, it's too late to change to Blitzwing. HyperToad I don't really trust Wayo
