Interesting idea, well done.[edit]

Very nice page. Seems like a constructive way to help the RfA situation.
Actually, when I read the reference to RfA reform, I thought the mop template had something to do with it. Then I thought that'd be kind of cool: if new admins were selected by people placing mops on the talk pages of people they admire. Maybe you limit people to, say, one mop every 12 months, and still have a panel to screen those selected.
But it'd rely far less on a small panel and more on a process where everyone says to themselves, "Ok, now who's the best editor I've seen all year?"

Thanks for the kind sentiments. I hope to see its usefulness. --My76Strat (talk) 08:01, 30 September 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Section title suggestion[edit]

I just saw this show up on a few user talk pages I have watchlisted. It isn't a bad idea, I'll be curious to see how it develops. But three pieces of feedback:

  1. I'd definitely ditch the "There's a mop reserved in your name" used for the nom target. That's way too optimistic, and I suspect could lead to disappointment. Particularly when the candidate is kind of advised in the essay to file an RFA ASAP. If you aren't careful, you're going to encourage someone to dive into the deep end when they aren't ready.
  2. The essay is geared toward explaining what the process is, but isn't really geared towards the potential candidate. If you're going to add this link in the notice, I think you want to add something along the lines of "what to do if you get this template" section.
  3. I'd suggest adding something along the lines of "feel free to talk to me about this if you think you might be interested".

I would consider also offering them a link to RFAADVICE for them to think it over. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 05:44, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
