After the creation of Template:Administration, a number of users have brought forward a number of questions regarding elements of the administration - namely, "who is 'X'?" and "why is he an admin when he doesn't edit?"
Below are the guys of yesteryear who many of you have never heard of:
|User||Current rights||Last edit date||Comments|
|Captain-poison||Bureaucrat||June 15, 2007||Notified me via MSN if someone had vandalised the wiki; didn't like editing, himself.|
|GunFreak||SysOp||September 16, 2011||Only ten edits in 2011, moved to Project Umbrella to be a weapons tech. advisor.|
|Maverick King|| Bureaucrat|
|June 26, 2009||Was active on the wiki before I became an administrator; had a lifestyle conflicting with his online-time.|
|September 2009||Banned across Wikia for some unknown reason.|
|Res.evil guy||Bureaucrat||Never edited||Based on the lack of any prior mention in the user rights log, he was granted this power when the wiki was founded in 2006.|
|Warsman11||Bureaucrat||September 23, 2006 (excluding brief communication on his user talk page)||Admin from March 2006, granted by Angela.|
It was also brought forward today that these former members of the administration loose their abilities to complete their retirement. After having a look a the Help Wiki, I must first bring this up to the wiki - I assume it's to avoid any cloak-and-daggers conspiracies whereby one user removes potential political threats.
