The following discussion is preserved as an archive of a request for adminship for a large scary dinosaur. The process wasn't required because the dragon like creature has consumed Bishonen and taken over her magic powers. Please feel free to modify it or remove this unofficial message.
Bishzilla (talk·contribs) - Bishzilla would be the ideal administrator. Anyone who says otherwise is itchin' for a fight. She graduated from admin school with a bare minimum of collateral damage, maiming only three newbies, two of whom may yet recover. It is my grave honor to nominate this proud giant reptile. —Bunchofgrapes (talk) 17:19, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
Me, hairy beast from the deep woods, want to convince youze people to make Bishzilla an admin. Why? Well, for one, cause I said so, that's why. But mainly because of what might happen if you DON'T! Save youzeselves a lot of grief and just vote "Support".--Bigfoot 17:39, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Thank you Bigfoot! Bishzilla bigger feet! (Insert little joke about treading on Tokyo here. Bishzilla learn about joking in admin school, now have very good personality!) Bishzilla | grrrr! 18:40, 24 January 2007 (UTC).
Here is MY endorsement for this candidate. Bishzilla, I really hope you make a real good Admin. Martial Law 21:33, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
Candidate, please indicate acceptance of the nomination here: Grrrr!!! Bishzilla | grrrr! 00:55, 23 January 2007 (UTC).
Bishzilla honest candidate, upfront, admit unusual status as sockpuppet of admin (Bishonen). Bishzilla can't help her origins, has risen above! Claim independence, has escaped puppeteer control. (Bishonen scared of her!) Zilla deserve her own bit! Will not object to removal of weenie Bishonen's bit, Zilla more useful admin!
Questions for the candidate
Dear candidate, thank you for offering to serve Wikipedia in this capacity. Please take the time to answer a few generic questions to provide guidance for participants:
2. Of your articles or contributions to Wikipedia, are there any with which you are particularly pleased, and why?
A: Zilla not strong content contributor. Motto: "More bull, less writing." Zilla more wikignome. Take pride in history merge of Talk:Lufthansa with Portal:India. Complicated! Bishzilla cleverly make talkpage link for Zilla sig [/me drums briefly on chest, overcome with self-conceit]. See how cool: Bishzilla | grrrr! Looking forward to developer status!
Bishzilla learn good admin personality in admin school. Receive successful personal coaching in good sense of humor, laugh uproariously at Megatokyo Rent-A-Zilla, at which would only have stared when newbie. Thank you admin school!
3. Have you been in any conflicts over editing in the past or have other users caused you stress? How have you dealt with it and how will you deal with it in the future?
A:Bastique place welcome template when Zilla already welcomed by the venerable Bishonen, grrrr, cause much stress! Deal with by eating welcome wagon, will continue to eat those. Admin school say not eat users themselves in future, eat inanimate objects only. Check. Bishzilla eager to learn! Will apologize to Bastique's family as soon as located. (Seem to be in hiding.)
Gurch block Zilla for accidentally squashing Gurchzilla, grrrrr, unjust and stressful! Zilla deal well, graciously accept apology and compensation, hug little user. Oops. Zilla learning to hug little users more gently, always ready to learn, very keen user! Give tools soon!
4. If you become a bureaucrat, will you pledge not to discuss promotion or non-promotion of potential admins on any other forum during the course of nominations and especially when making a decision? And to discuss issues of promotion or non-promotion only with other bureaucrats, in their talk, where such discussion would be transparent? (I admit it might be a bit early to ask this, but you never know...) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ais523 (talk • contribs) 16:59, 24 January 2007 (UTC).

A:Bot messing with Zilla head? Confusing, cause stress! This signed comment was added by Bishzilla! Bishzilla | grrrr! 17:10, 24 January 2007 (UTC).
A: Please avoid questions that make Zilla hungry. Bishzilla | grrrr! 10:15, 29 January 2007 (UTC).
6. If appointed, will you be open to recall, and, if so, under what circumstances? TheronJ 18:32, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
A: No worries, Bishzilla recall if three little users request. (Bishzilla can count to three, learn many new skills in admin school.) Three little users will be BURNED TO CRISPS, fair exchange. Sorry miss question before. Now support, little ThereonJ? Bishzilla | grrrr! 10:15, 29 January 2007 (UTC).
Optional question from Irpen
7. If elected, do you plan to join #wikipedia-en-admins? (I can't support you if you plan to avoid this valuable communication medium). --Irpen 04:11, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
A: Zilla plan rule the roost, will be stern chanop, make Mackensen look like milksop! Bishzilla | grrrr! 10:15, 29 January 2007 (UTC).
A: [Cannily.] If it make little Dragon's Flight support, yes, Zilla be dragon. If not, be dinosaur in spiderman suit. Support fellow monsters! Bishzilla | grrrr! 22:26, 29 January 2007 (UTC).
Optional question from Bubba hotep
9. Is it true that the candidate: (a) came up from the depths, (b) is thirty stories high, (c) breathing fire, (d) head in the sky, (e) Bishzilla! Bishzilla! Bishzilla!, (f) ... and Bishzookie. Or am I confusing you with someone/thing else? Bubbahotep 21:56, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
A: Cousin Godzilla maybe? Bishzilla up from deeps, no depths involved. Regret mere ten stories high, but Bishzilla spiderman suit fit all the better when climbing Reichstag. Bishzilla | grrrr! 22:36, 30 January 2007 (UTC).
Mandatory question from Khoikhoi
10. What do you think of Mothra? Have you ever had feelings towards him/her/it? Khoikhoi 04:26, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
A: Bishzilla heart pledged to Muzzy. [Heartfelt drumroll on chest at thought of Muzzy.]. But will consider adding Mothra to harem. Bishzilla always ready to be friendly! (Please give tools to sexy Zilla.) Bishzilla | grrrr! 12:06, 5 February 2007 (UTC).
Mandatory question from Martial Law
11.I've seen you in action. A user has horrifically cursed/cussed you out. How do you handle that ? One other question, what do you think of Rodan ? Martial Law 21:45, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
Mandible question from Vassyana
12.What is your relation, if any, with Dagon and the Deep Ones? How would this affect your abuse of policy? Vassyana 10:22, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
An alternate account of Bishonen, which is already an admin. Is this nomination a joke? Michaelas10(Talk) 17:23, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
What on earth gave you that idea? Bishonen | talk 01:01, 25 January 2007 (UTC).
This question cracks me up. It's an indictment either of the voters or, much more likely, the quality of recent RFA candidates. That's why this satire is a good blowing off of steam. Geogre 11:50, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
Discussion NOTE: RfA is a vote, not a discussion. Any votes with additional comments will be discounted.
Support: I have every confidence this candidate would not misuse the tools. Eat them, maybe, but not misuse them. With regard to the concern that the candidate is non-human, in reviewing the current list of admins I note the presence of a chihuahua, a porpoise, a mouse, an eagle, a crustacian, a gerbil, and most to the point a dragon, among others, so that precedent was set a long time ago. I trust Bishzilla to know when to give users a gentle hug and when it's time for something more like aggressive taunting with a suggestion of death. I hope that's okay, 'zilla, please don't kill me. Newyorkbrad 13:32, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
In the interest of not being burnt to a crisp, I Support this candidate. (If you need help answering optional questions, you can use my cheat sheet). NoSeptember 13:38, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Support. Always will support fellow monsters. Fut.zilla. 17:19, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Weak Support - Mentions about the fact that candidate graduated from admin school with a bare minimum of collateral damage, maiming only three newbies raise concerns of disregard for WP:BITE but I trust the candidate has left all that behind. Roadmr (t|c) 17:33, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Support, the spinning head in the signature suggest sufficient experience with images. Kusma(討論) 17:52, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Petition firmly accepted. Arise Sir Bishzilla! - Francis Tyers· 17:55, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
I thought Bishzilla was a girl? Fut.Perf.☼ 18:10, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Girls can't be knights now? What kind of terrible world of 1382 do you suppose are we living in?! - Francis Tyers· 18:35, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Kill all humans - with so many of them editing it's obviously gonna cause a near catastrophe of a systemic bias, 'bout time they were culled. So, Bishzilla's eaten a few editors here and there, <BURP> who hasn't, all it taught me was Mexicans give me indigestion... I stand in awe of Bishzilla, well I pretty much have to stand for everything since Bishzilla ate my furniture last week, I'm not complaining mind you, it was only fair, it was all paisley. The answer to quesiton one really swung it for me though.--Alfmelmac 18:14, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Would normally oppose or not vote at all because of candidate's low edit count, but am happy to support on condition that you promise to be as like Bishonen as possible! Musical Linguist 19:06, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
SUPPORT!!!! I see that this has been closed! The end of the world is now a likely prospect! I told you folks to vote suppport...think of your homes, your children, your goldfish! Don't you see what you have done?! Oh, the horror, the horror!--Bigfoot 19:22, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Fast-track to Steward. ZILLA NEED TOOLS. — Werdnatalk 04:49, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
Strong support, right attitude, convincing answers to the questions. We need more IRC admins to block the fickle and ill-informed users who forget where they belong. --Irpen 18:58, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Support all fire breathing dragons. Dragons flight 23:11, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Reluctant support I'm afraid that the candidate's answers to my questions were perhaps too calm and collected. I feel that I cannot have confidence in an administrator who cannot be relied on to over-react and act rationally. But most of all, I am afraid. Hence the reluctant support. Don't want to end up with bits of chewed up cat or hedgehog in my garden, after all. They play havoc with the Flymo blades. Bubbahotep 22:47, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
Saurpport. Adminship should be no big deal, although the prospective admin candidate seems to be a big deal. Besides, we need more rouge admins. --Elkman - (Elkspeak) 02:36, 31 January 2007 (UTC)
Whatever. Bring it on Zilla baby, bring it on. King Kong 16:19, 31 January 2007 (UTC)
Support per affirmative action for the 'Zilla community (and who could oppose such a fine looking specimen?) Sarah 16:27, 31 January 2007 (UTC)
Super strong (please don't eat me) support (does it count under duress?) Bastiq▼edemandez 19:34, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
Support. At first I was concerned that this user had no regard for human life and wished to exterminate and enslave our race. But that spinning head just goes around and around. It's crazy. Deco 19:35, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
Brilliant contributor. I like her attitude. Picaroon 20:40, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
Put me in your pocket-support! Nice and cozy, with WLAN, I've been told. Rather be in there than be in Tokyo! – Elizzilla • T • C • 22:06, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
Is it the case that the population of 'zillas on the 'pedia has morethanquadrupled recently? If this goes on, they are soon going to become a mere commodity. Really. Fut.Perf.☼ 23:11, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
Speaking for self, me have no idea what little Fut.zilla talk about. NotAZilla 23:17, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
Support. Most RfA are decided by weight of numbers. This one is to be decided by weight. CFTBL 23:32, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
Strongest Possible Support. I have every confidence that Bizhilla will be unable to abuse (or for that matter, even use) the tools. ;) – Lantoka (talk) 10:46, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Support Why are people not taking this nomination with the seriousness it deserves? OMGGGSHHH!!!!1!!!1!!one!!!! not one already? 81 featured edits, been here nearly 4 months, I definitely trust the candidate. --Majorly(o rly?) 11:07, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
I already thought you were one, no really, I really already did support - WP:100 here we come... The Rambling Man 13:36, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Extreme reptilian support: it's time we taught these silly primates a lesson and squashed their rambunctious uppitiness. oops, I stepped on another…where can I wipe my claws? HTH HAND —NotACat…NotACatAtAll
HYPER STRONG SUPPORT From me and my WMD Mecha-Saur. "Let's Roll !!!!". Hope you make a GREAT Admin. Martial Law 20:52, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
Support. Just the sort of gumption we're looking for these days. Mackensen(talk) 21:50, 28 February 2007 (UTC)
Support. Opposing might make him angry. An angry Bishzilla? (gulp!) Grutness...wha? 00:34, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
Bishzilla is female. Otherwise, it would be Bishzillo. O:-) Ben Aveling 10:16, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
Are you asking for a BATTLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLE??? Administrators these days need to know not to be combative. They must end disputes with one mighty strike of Nuclear Breath rage! --InShaneee 07:46, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
Supppport – Gourock garden gnome considers candidate shows fine blend of tact and diplomacy, ideal for admin. .. dave souza, talk 02:36, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
Suport – A nice and funny user. Make me smile every time i read the comments of Bishzilla. --SkyWalker 15:05, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
Lurker Support - I thought she already was one! --TexTalk 15:39, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
Strong support - blimey, you weren't one already? You clearly have a revolutionary understanding of teh_bloxor_policy (). Even though the concerns NOT outlined by Radiant! that your MediaWiki Talk space edit count is far too low are totally legitimate, I think you can be trusted. - ZeiburaTalk 06:50, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
It's only fair, after all, she was singularly responsible for my RfB success. Andre (talk) 11:18, 11 July 2007 (UTC)
Oppose 47 edits...--Wizardman 16:54, 24 January 2007 (UTC) Changed to Pie.
This kind of editcountitis makes me sick! Do you trust the user or not, that's all that matters. —Bunchofgrapes (talk) 16:56, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
I've actually gotten bette with that, supporting peope with only 1500-odd edits. However, I can't tell whether ou would be good with the tools or not. And because I can't tell, I therefore can't trust.--Wizardman 16:58, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
And may I add that hhe's technically already an admin, no need to be a double-admin.--Wizardman 17:00, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Technically yes, but wienie bishonen useless! Zilla better admin! Bishzilla | grrrr! 17:13, 24 January 2007 (UTC).
Oppose. No mainspace. – PeaceNT 17:04, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
This originally true. Little user correct. But Bishzilla NOW performed wondrous edit to Random Article. Copy-edit, no less! Improve stub 100%! Help wikipedia! Now support, little Peacenik? Bishzilla | grrrr! 18:35, 24 January 2007 (UTC).
Random article now deleted as useless after primate nominates. Bishzilla invited to edit another random article, primate will consider deletion nomination. - Tragic Baboon (banana receptacle) 02:08, 31 January 2007 (UTC)
Ah! I see one mainspace edit. That's good. Keep up the great work! – PeaceNT 05:15, 31 January 2007 (UTC)
Strong Oppose Edit count is an extreme consideration and the answers to the questions are quite weak, especially to question one, I'm not sure whether I'd trust this user just yet. Give it a few months and about 3,000 mainspace contribs and work in policy areas then I'd probably support. Tellyaddict 17:07, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Oppose. Piss-take. RfA is sucky enough without administrators (who frighteningly appears to know nothing about WP:SIG) using the RfA process for personal amusement. --Kind Regards - Heligoland 17:33, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Ignorance of WP:SIG frighten you, little user? How about Bishzilla atomic deathray? (/me picks up little user and stares hypnotically at him.] BURNING TO CRISP not frighten you? Hmm? Bishzilla | grrrr! 17:47, 24 January 2007 (UTC).
/me fetches Flash Gordon. "He'll save everyone of us" --Kind Regards - Heligoland 18:09, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Strong Oppose. The Baboon insists that policy be modified immediately so as to permit only primates to receive administrator privileges. The Baboon despises all lower evolutionary forms with their inadequate cranial volume. - Tragic Baboon (banana receptacle) 18:07, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Nonsense. Baboon voted oppose. Baboon is silly furry person without understanding of true superiority, or Baboon would have voted support. KillerChihuahua?!? 21:38, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
Oppose - no need for the tools proffered. And this really should have waited until April Fools. MoreschiDeletion! 18:44, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
[Tolerantly] Silly little user. Zilla not need tools, Zilla like tools! Bishzilla | grrrr! 10:15, 29 January 2007 (UTC).
Oppose: Newbie bones are getting to be scarce, and I do not want the competition for food. Geogre 11:51, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
Oppose: Reluctantly. I'm afraid as a user of Cretaceous age, you are at least 160 million years older than most of your admin colleagues who seem to average 7-17 years old. I'm concerned that the age gap may present some difficulties. --Mcginnly | Natter 01:21, 26 January 2007 (UTC)
Strong oppose - I am uneasy with the concept of having an admin who is as comfortable with destroying entire cities with her sheer physical might, and then seizing the few survivors in her cruel talons and incinerating them with her fiery nuclear exhalations, as Bishzilla is. Perhaps she would do better on Citizendium. DS 19:34, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
[/me lift up little user, stare hard. Experimentally blow a gentle puff of breath. User hair catches fire.] Oops. Bishzilla | grrrr! 22:19, 2 February 2007 (UTC).
Oppose, this is very inappropriate. Can we make jokes without playing around with the process? Everyking 10:10, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Oppose. I'm worried he'll be too heavy-handed with the tools. Also concerned that he'll eat vandals before giving the proper warning. —Doug Belltalk 10:34, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Oppose - After reading the answers to questions 3 and 5, concerned that Bishzilla may misuse the tools - by eating the mop, other Wikipedians, and perhaps Wikipedia itself... I for one don't look forward to reading the Bishikipedia in braille on the lizard's skin at Bishzilla.org (This whole discussion gives a whole new meaning to the "right to fork" : ) - jc37 10:47, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Oppose Itchin' for a fight. EVula// talk // ☯ // 03:08, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
You may be itchin for a fight, but that's a pretty poor reason to oppose. Regards, Ben Aveling 02:23, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Neutral - while I don't see a specific policy against it, I can't help but be queazy supporting a non-human reptile for adminship. Try again in a few months, (if you haven't lost any death matches with King Kong yet). Patstuarttalk|edits 08:19, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Where Bunchofgrapes? Nominator supposed to hassle Opposes and Neutrals, make them change mind! Boo! Send Bunchofgrapes to Nominator School! Come hassle now! Bishzilla | grrrr! 12:49, 24 January 2007 (UTC).
"Queazy"? Bishzilla makes you "queazy", Patstuart? You obviously have personal issues with her; it saddens and disgusts me to see you airing this dirty laundry in an such an august forum as this. —Bunchofgrapes (talk) 16:06, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Comment But it's january? Bubbahotep 17:19, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Neutral. I can't bring myself to oppose this as a pile-on, I'm simply too amused. I haven't chuckled at Wikipedia this much in a while. --badlydrawnjefftalk 18:47, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Neutral for now. Looks to me like a very strong candidate but will wait to answer my question first. --Irpen 04:11, 29 January 2007 (UTC) Changed to strong support. --Irpen 18:58, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Neutral: I share the concern over reptiles being given the admin buttons- so far nearly all successful admins have been mammals. Also this editor seems to have questionable language skills in almost all areas except roaring. There's already too much percieved division between admins and non-admins, and we don't want to encourage the notion that admins are big scary roaring monsters by appointing actual big scary roaring monsters. All that said, I really cannot bring myself to oppose either, mainly out of fear of being eaten. If this editor can evolve a bit and get back to us, I may be able to support in an era or two. Friday(talk) 22:47, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Extreme Neutral! Already a sysop in fact. Sjakkalle(Check!) 07:22, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Neutral, user may destroy cities if promoted, but I might end up dying a horrible death in the user's jaws if I oppose, so neutral it is. --Coredesat 07:38, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Neutral, I'd like this user to demonstrate that it really can fit into a spiderman costume first. Otherwise I'd might consider supporting. Delta Tango • Talk 07:54, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Neutral. If this were a serious RFA, I would oppose per answers to questions, disregard of WP:SIG, apparent lack of knowledge of English grammar, and 81 edits, of which 23 are to this RFA and only 2 are mainspace. However, this RFA has been too funny to read for me to oppose outright. I move that when it is closed, if it fails, it not be kept with the other failed RFAs, but humor-tagged and placed in Category:Wikipedia humor.--Grand Slam 7 | Talk 12:58, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Awaiting Q14 answer. It'd better be me. GiggyUCP 04:51, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
Oppose. I'm sorry, but 47 edits and 11 projectspace don't much experience on Wikipedia, and I cannot entrust this user to perform a good use of the tools. The answers are absurd, specificly to question one, which needs to be threated very seriously. Please keep editing on Wikipedia for a few months and come back.
