Ingenuity (talk · contribs) – I am proud to begin my admin-nominating career with Ingenuity. Primarily working in counter-vandalism and AfC, Ingenuity has experience in the deletion processes, and most importantly for me has experience in content as well, taking three articles to GA and almost always using edit summaries. There has been a recent outpouring of support for Ingenuity to be granted the mop, and I think it's time to give the people what they want. All in all, this is a solid candidate whose induction to the admin corps I look forward to seeing soon! – John M Wolfson (talk • contribs) 15:15, 2 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Co-nomination statement

What more can I say about Ingenuity than they are an incredibly solid user that's very quickly become a very knowledgeable and consistent editor. I very much think that they are well suited for adminship, with a knowledge of both the content creation and backend sides of the encyclopedia. Lee Vilenski (talkcontribs) 18:56, 5 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Candidate, please indicate acceptance of the nomination here: I accept; thank you to John M Wolfson and Lee Vilenski for the nominations. I have never edited for pay and will not do so in the future. I have two other accounts: IngenuityBot and IngenuityTest. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 19:45, 5 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Questions for the candidate

Dear candidate, thank you for offering to serve Wikipedia as an administrator. Please answer these questions to provide guidance for participants:

1. Why are you interested in becoming an administrator?
A: The areas that I'd like to work in are mainly counter-vandalism, which is where I currently spend much of my time—administrator intervention against vandalism, requests for page protection, and revision deletion. I've made over a thousand reports at AIV and requested revision deletion a number of times on IRC, and it can often take a while before the reports are addressed. I'd like to help keep the backlogs down in these areas. I may also work at requests for permissions (specifically rollback) and speedy deletion.
2. What are your best contributions to Wikipedia, and why?
A: I think my best content contributions are my good articles: Nellie McClung, Louise McKinney, and Irene Parlby. I've also written a number of articles, and I'm currently trying to get Brownie Wise to GA. I'm also proud of my user scripts, particularly AntiVandal. Recently I've been working on another user script for editing citations. I have also worked at articles for creation, where I've reviewed several thousand drafts.
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: It's impossible to avoid conflict entirely on Wikipedia, but thankfully, other than the occasional threats and insults from vandals, I don't get into conflicts with other editors often. I've found that it's important to acknowledge and learn from my mistakes, rather than doubling down on them; I think a good example of this would be this discussion from a couple months ago.

You may ask optional questions below. There is a limit of two questions per editor. Multi-part questions disguised as one question, with the intention of evading the limit, are disallowed. Follow-up questions relevant to questions you have already asked are allowed.

Optional question from Bbb23
4. You started editing Wikipedia a little over 2 years ago. You've managed an impressive 65K+ edits to the project, and editing in a great many areas of the project. You began with edit summaries that were outstanding, neither too short nor too long. Within a few days you created a decent article. Had you been editing before as an IP (nothing wrong with that, of course) and reviewing policies, guidelines, good examples of content creation, etc., before creating your account? Or are you an incredibly quick study? To be clear, I am not accusing you of having had an account before this one; think of it as praise rather than implicit censure.
A: I think I made one edit as an IP before registering this account, but I never edited before that. When I created my account I was (and to some extent, I still am) afraid of making mistakes, so I obsessively read policy before writing articles to avoid making mistakes. That's not to say I didn't make any mistakes; one of my first articles, for example, was on a non-notable subject and I eventually nominated it for AfD after learning more about notability guidelines. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 19:22, 8 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Optional question from Dolotta
5. Of the areas you plan to use the admin toolset, where do you consider yourself to have the least experience?
A: Of the areas I'd like to work in - AIV, RFPP, REVDEL, PERM, and CSD - the one that I have the least experience with is requests for permissions. This is mainly because non-admins are discouraged from doing any clerking, so other than nominating some other users for the Autopatrolled right I haven't participated there. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 22:36, 8 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Optional question from Illusion Flame
6. Which pillar do you think is most important and why?
A: Wikipedia would be a significantly different place without any of the five pillars, but I think the most important is the second: Wikipedia is written from a neutral point of view. The reason so many people read Wikipedia is because they can trust it to provide reliable, unbiased information. Especially in an era where biased news is widespread, it's important that Wikipedia's articles are based on reliable sources, rather than the opinions of its editors. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 00:18, 9 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Optional question from Lourdes
7. Thank you for your outstanding contributions. This question is related to understanding your editorial views on globally sensitive topics. As mentioned by Bbb23 above, please do not take this as any aspersion on your personal views. In the article detailing Russia-Ukraine war, you maintained a stand initially that it was not a "war",[1] despite news articles detailing Putin launching the military assault. Were you semantically requiring that news article qualify this as a war, before accepting it is a war? Thank you for your answer in advance.
A: The edit I reverted stated On February 24, Vladimir Putin declared war on Ukraine; this was incorrect, and not supported by the sources provided. For example, this source stated that Russia "effectively declared war", which is different from a formal declaration of war. Even several months later, Russia still hadn't formally declared war. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 12:48, 9 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Optional question from Lightoil
8. Do you foresee yourself working on the "dramaboards" such as WP:ANI and WP:AE and imposing sanctions such as bans and blocks?
A: Not really, at least for the foreseeable future. I only know the basics about contentious topics, arbitration enforcement, etc. since those aren't areas I'm interested in, so I'd have to learn the ropes before participating in those areas. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 12:48, 9 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Optional question from Googleguy007
9. Would you be open to recall, and if so, what recall criteria would you use?
A: Yes, under this criteria: if five editors in good standing (1k edits, 6 months old, not currently blocked), including at least two admins, sign a petition for me to resign in a one week period, I will either resign or submit a reconfirmation RfA. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 12:48, 9 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Optional question from Cecropia
10. Given the relative rarity of RFAs, how do you feel about the small number of new RFAs, and the even smaller number of approvals, compared to Wikipedia History. Do you think Adminship has become intimidating? Should more users be encouraged to apply? Why or why not? - Cecropia (talk) 18:06, 9 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
A: Adminship itself might not have become more intimidating, but the RfA process definitely has. The most obvious reason for this is the increasing standards for candidates; back in the early 2000s, candidates were only expected to have a few thousand edits, but now a candidate passing with under 10,000 is rare. RfA reforms, such as WP:RFA2021, resulted in some interesting proposals, like temporary adminship and admin elections, but unfortunately neither gained consensus, and no significant changes were made. I think we should encourage qualified candidates to run, but ultimately the only solution is a major reform of the RfA process. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 20:40, 9 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Optional question from ShticktatorTal
11. As someone who is likely to be administrator (and I undoubtedly support you in your quest to gain the position), what technical improvements to the site do you desire to make editing an easier process for newer editors? Also, how do you seek to improve the quality of underdeveloped articles and to encourage all editors to do so? Do you feel that it's something that should be promoted on a larger scale within the Wikimedia movement, or rather just a basic responsibility of all editors, not just admins and hardcore users, to undertake? Sorry, this is a mouthful. :)
A: Newcomer retention is a big problem that Wikipedia faces, and new editors often leave because of how complex and confusing Wikipedia can be. Even small technical changes to improve the user experience can go a long way; for example, the AfC help desk wizard was recently implemented, and it's much better than the template that was being used previously. I participate a lot at articles for creation, and I've seen the difficulties new users face. In the future, I'd like to help improve the AfC process to make it a better experience for new users.
As for the second part of your question - promoting the improvement of articles, especially ones that are underdeveloped, is the job of all editors. We're here to build an encyclopedia, after all, and so our highest priority should be to improve the quality of Wikipedia's articles. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 01:02, 10 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Optional question from Scottywong
12. Thanks for agreeing to put yourself through the wringer here at RfA. I noticed that the nomination statement here indicates that you have experience with the deletion processes. However, this experience seems to be focused primarily on speedy deletion, as you've only contributed to about 40 AfDs. Two-part question: first, is there any particular reason that you've avoided the discussion-based deletion forums like AfD (or RfD, MfD, CfD, TfD, FfD)? And second, do you have any intention or interest in participating in discussion-based deletion forums in an administrative capacity?
A: I don't participate at XfD discussions often because I'm not really interested in those areas, so I only comment when nominating an article or when I come across an AfD notice on an article. I don't plan on closing deletion discussions often, at least in the foreseeable future. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 13:38, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Additional questions from Robert McClenon
13. What experience have you had in resolving or trying to resolve disputes between editors, either article content disputes or conduct disputes?
A: I don't have much experience with dedicated dispute resolution processes such as ANI, DRN, or 3O. I have some experience with content disputes; for example, the closing of this RfC on the inclusion of an infobox on James Joyce. I prefer to stay out of disputes whenever possible, and I don't edit in contentous topics frequently. I don't plan on participating at ANI and related areas often in the foreseeable future. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 03:26, 14 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Optional question from Folly Mox
14. Wikipedia is building a new deck and you have been tasked with selecting a sixth pillar to act as a vertical support element. What's your Sixth Pillar?
Optional questions from Ivanvector
15. You have mentioned interest in working in speedy deletion but not discussion-based deletion (i.e. xFD). Can you identify all of the situations where an administrator can delete a page without a discussion having occurred? (Hint: unless someone wants to prove me wrong, I believe there are three.)
16. Looking through your CSD log, I see a number of tags you've placed where I would not have deleted (admittedly a small percentage, and all of the ones I looked at were in fact deleted). In your opinion, what should a patrolling administrator do if a page is tagged for speedy deletion and in the administrator's opinion the page should be deleted, but the tag specifies an unsuitable criterion or no criterion at all? (For example, a page contains only the sentence "Joe is my neighbour and he has a really cool hat" and is tagged with {{db-nonsense}})


Please keep discussion constructive and civil. If you are unfamiliar with the nominee, please thoroughly review his contributions before commenting.

  1. Let's go, Ingenuity! Solid candidate! Your CSD log is no doubt great, your AFC log is also excellent, and ever since I've met you in January 2022, you've grown to a productive and substantial editor! I'm rooting for you!

  5. I don't usually jump into an RfA this early, but I've seen this user around and been consistently impressed with their work. A quick look at their stats adds to that impression. This is a solid and well rounded user with an enviable record of contributions to the project. Happy to support. -Ad Orientem (talk) 16:25, 8 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That discussion had a lot of eyes on it, and I can't imagine it was particularly easy to close. While there are some minor aspects of the closing statement that I don't fully agree with, overall I believe it was a fair summary of a complex discussion which later survived its inevitable AN review.

  66. Support a productive, clueful editor working in areas where they (and wikipedia!) will immediately benefit from them being granted the admin tools.

  103. Support I read through the editor's AfDs and found a curious ivote here - not very troubling though and possibly letter-of-the-law-right. Nice to see that the editor is not overly involved at ANI - I read through the incidents where they were there and I do not see them seeking drama. I see a controversial close of an RFC that demonstrates a willingness to make tough calls. I hoped for more content creation but I see that the editor has three GAs. The question for me is always, will the editor protect content and content creators? I see evidence that they will. Lightburst (talk) 20:58, 9 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oppose: You are an outstanding editor, and are relatively fair-minded in your judicious application of Wikipedia's policies as they are written. Your contributions are fantastic. The quality of your articles are great, your edits are well-written, and your discussion in AfD is fair-minded and polite. There are strong reasons to support your candidacy, and the overwhelming support you have received on this page is a testament to the quality and value your contributions have brought to this site.
However, some of the discretionary votes you have made on AfD weigh too far (in my view) on the side of deletionism for me to support your candidacy.
In particular, I take issue with:
The following deletion votes : Wherwell Primary School, George J. Fritschel, Luis Fernando Cifuentes, Zoop (platform), Ry Armstrong (actor), C3controls (2nd nomination)
The following redirection votes: Roosevelt Elementary School (Hawthorne, New Jersey), Washington Elementary School (Hawthorne, New Jersey), Mark Ashton (musician)
This Merge vote: Raid of Mar-a-Lago
Thank you for your great contributions to this site.

    I've reverted the (non-admin, non-crat) striking of this !vote as there was no solid reason for it to be done. Not that this is in any way a close RFA such that it matters to the result. Courcelles (talk) 14:22, 15 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I struck it because the editor was indeffed. Is that not a valid reason? QuicoleJR (talk) 15:35, 15 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    No, because a) the editor was not indeffed at the time the comment was made b) the block had nothing to do with this RfA comment anyway, but mainly c) does it really matter if the RfA has 0,1,2 or 3 opposes at this late stage? Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 15:39, 15 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    It could be if they were a troll or such, but had you looked at their talk page you would have seen this was one of those "indefinite" blocks that wasn't going to last. (Indeed, it's already undone.) There's no solid list of "when to strike RFA votes", but in general, I'd advise you to leave it to the crats unless the block is for socking.

You know, Ingenuity, how do you pronounce your username? Is it In-gen-you-ity or In-gen-oo-ity? Just wondering! Tails Wx 13:52, 10 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I pronounce it in-gen-you-ity, but you can pronounce it however you like :) — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 14:30, 10 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've been saying "engine-u-ity", likely wrongly Lee Vilenski (talkcontribs) 14:41, 10 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This is all a matter of accent more than anything (Americans such as myself will likely say "in-gen-oo-it-y", whereas Commonwealthers will likely say "in-gen-you-it-y"), but "engine-(y)oo-it-y" sounds like the Kay's Cooking of speech. – John M Wolfson (talk • contribs) 14:45, 10 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

What about an exciting one? Tails Wx 21:05, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
In my opinion, exciting RFAs are those where 100+ people support the candidate, but there is one user that opposes for a stupid reason. The part I find quite funny is when the community completely rejects/destroys the user that opposed. - 🔥𝑰𝒍𝒍𝒖𝒔𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝑭𝒍𝒂𝒎𝒆 (𝒕𝒂𝒍𝒌)🔥 01:34, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Age of account is an even worse proxy for suitability than edit count. A (now former) sysop who's been editing for more than 22 years recently had a major lapse in judgement. This isn't to say that tenure shouldn't be considered as part of an assessment, but it needs to be examined in concert with a whole host of other factors.

Further if the decline in sysop numbers is to be reversed and granting the degree of concern over the current trend varies we are going to need to grant the bit to people who ask for it after two years, perhaps sooner.

Thanks for stepping forward and volunteering Ingenuity. (talk) 04:31, 15 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Age of account is definitely isn't a proxy, at least for cases like mine, who has decade(s)-long dormant accounts, and suddenly reactivating for one legit reason or another. – robertsky (talk) 15:50, 15 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
