Hi all, Atvelonis here. Lately there have been a few requests for me to become a bureaucrat, so I figured now would be a good time to apply for the position. Currently, I'm the most active administrator, as Tim, Flight, Jarjar, and CCC are all somewhat preoccupied with real life. While CCC and Tim have decent levels of activity, it's still difficult to get them to update Special:UserRights in a timely fashion due to their schedules. This has been a bit of a problem as promotions and resignations often end up taking several days. I don't plan on investing lots of time in something else anytime soon, and I've kept pretty stable activity levels since I joined, so it would be good to have a less busy admin such as myself as bureaucrat to help improve efficiency.
Some background if you don't know me. I joined in late 2014 but didn't interact much until I became a staff member the next year. In 2015 I supported a lot of new community-oriented projects to help get the ball rolling again, like the new Staff application system, the Guilds, Weekly Updates, the Moot, and so on. I'm nearing 50,000 edits and have created almost 5000 mainspace pages, plus I have loads of projects I'm working on at any given moment. I check Recent Changes very thoroughly on a regular basis and spend a lot of time on the chat moderating discussions and collaborating with others so I'm up to date on everything and very accessible.
That's the gist of it. We are in need of another bureaucrat and because I'm pretty level-headed and have a lot of experience with the wiki at this point I believe I'm qualified for the position. So thanks all, and have fun editing! —Atvelonis (talk) 23:46, February 23, 2016 (UTC)
Support – Atv goes above and beyond with his duties. He helped me out during the raffle. Atv is extremely active, and I have never seen a day when he hasn't edited. He's played almost every game, I'm pretty sure. Since all the other admins are pretty inactive due to real life, i think Atv should get the rights.
I'll justify this at relative length as this is a major application. However, I don't think it'll take me long to communicate the main points.
He is the most committed to this wiki. He performs the most menial task, that of verifying almost every edit that goes through this wiki, meticulously. He still finds time on top of this to contribute content. Hundreds of images and thousands of pages have been created by his hand. He has contributed to improving lore articles too, as seen with Blackwater War. He is already carrying the wiki on his shoulders. This is evidence of editing skill and peerless dedication.
Atv takes his current job as admin very seriously, seeing his performing the role of each staff position, as well as that of admin, as part of his duty. This is a level of dedication to his position far beyond my own, or any other staff member. As a perfectionist, he has also said that it was only recently did he feel he was fulfilling what it was to be an admin in its entirety. He holds himself highly accountable to high standards. This makes me confident that he will take the role of bureaucrat exceptionally seriously indeed.
On repeated occasions Atv has shown himself to be effectively diplomatic when dealing with users of all abilities. I challenge you to find a user, except me, with a grudge against him. He frequents chat more than any other admin, which shows he is very much in touch with what is actually going on in the wiki.
The pervading element through all of this is an air of professionalism. He understands the nuances of what makes an article good, what makes chat run smoothly, what will and will not make an effective policy etc... It is this, most crucially, that convinces me that Atv has the competence of thought and sense of direction to help run the wiki at the level of bureaucrat.
Support – I don't know what more to add, since just about everthing that qualifies him for the position has been stated above. That said he has my full support. The Cat Master (talk) 00:29, February 24, 2016 (UTC)
Support – I'm with Cat Master on this one. Everyone else pretty much took the words out of my mouth so I don't really find any need to explain those points again. I just have no doubt whatsoever that Atv should be a bureaucrat. -Kora Stormblade (talk) 00:33, February 24, 2016 (UTC)
Support – Atvelonis.... damn, what should I say hmm.... He's a freaking livin' machine. I tought that Timeoin was the only one out there but, it seems Atvelonis is part of this weird organisation of people on wikia who seems to be able to make more than 300 edits per days, always being updated about everything, ready for everything and,to know everything, this is how I could begin with if I wanted to describe atvelonis. He's one of the best we have, and, I dont see anyone else more suited than him at the moment, if we take a look at his contributions, he's everywhere on the wikia, could it be, RC, Online, skyrim, always up to something, removing vandalism, fixing mistakes, etc. I think that a Bureaucrat should show some leadership and, some feeling of I know what to do, and atvelonis shows it everydays because, he knows how/why/when to do something. Everyone is aware of all of what I just said so, i'll end with, yeah of course ! Give him the key to the command room ! Emperor Jarjarkine (chat with meh) 00:52, February 24, 2016 (UTC)
Support – Amen. No need to repeat what they all said.
Support – Atvel is one mean green- (no racisim intended) -edit machine and has been a very loyal attribute to this Wiki. Not only has he helped with editing, but he helps others /with editing/, including me. In the name of my father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roomate, promote this wikigod of a man!

Support – I almost voted Neutral on this application. Hear me out though - The reason being because at times, I forget that Atvelonis isnt ALREADY a Bureaucrat, given how much he's helping behind the scenes (Categorisation and the like). Then I thought, well, given his current rate of edits, hes only a short distance away from the danger zone where everyone leaves anyway... sooo... why not promote him first? (Seriously though Atve. Youre not allowed to leave. Ever). Also - Thank you for that nomination comment above, Ralv! Spaceballs is awesome :) Timeoin•Say G'Day•View my work 20:12, February 26, 2016 (UTC)
