Gougef (talkcontribsedit countpage movesblock userblock log) – Gougef (aka FrankieG, aka Ranger) has been around since March. He really turned it up in June, though, which was in the twilight of the season break. His contributions have ranged from keeping the daily quotes updated (much appreciated by myself) as well as updating and mopping on content articles as well. Ranger has also made significant efforts in the Think Tank, helping to shape and clarify Battlestar Wiki policy. When prompted to suggest potential admin candidates in a recent discussion on my talk page, his was one of the names that leapt to mind. His consistent civility, level-headedness, his commitment to promoting and upholding standards demonstrate an archetype of what a contributor (and an admin) should be. --Steelviper 09:19, 12 October 2006 (CDT)

Candidate, please indicate acceptance of the nomination here: I humbly accept. --FrankieG 12:59, 12 October 2006 (CDT)


  1. Symbol support vote.svg Support As nominator. --Steelviper 09:19, 12 October 2006 (CDT)
  2. Symbol support vote.svg Support. SV read my mind: We were in agreement in considerations for the previous RFA candidate as well as this one. Frankie has shown a strong level-headedness, initiative and motivation in his work that will aid everyone greatly as an administrator. Given the growth of users and articles here, we need another mopper. Besides, we need another old man aside from me as an admin. :) --Spencerian 09:38, 12 October 2006 (CDT)
  3. Symbol support vote.svg Support Has been nothing but a "Father" figure (Other than Joe and Spenc} to all. --Shane (T - C - E) 11:09, 12 October 2006 (CDT)
  4. Symbol support vote.svg Support Nothing I can add that hasn't been said. --Talos 11:56, 12 October 2006 (CDT)
  5. Symbol support vote.svg Support He has had no conflicts of note, and, since he's been here over 7 months, any hypothetical downsides would presumably have surfaced by now; importantly, there is no evidence he would abuse power given it. He has made many good edits and been diligent, thorough, and civil. As I can find no reason at all to object and several good reasons to support him, I'll do the latter. --CalculatinAvatar(C-T) 18:29, 12 October 2006 (CDT)
  6. Symbol support vote.svg Support FRAKHEADS Unite! --Ribsy 00:07, 13 October 2006 (CDT)
  7. Symbol support vote.svg Support You've got my vote as well --Larocque6689 01:23, 13 October 2006 (CDT)
  8. Symbol support vote.svg Support Definite support, very mature and intelligent, very helpful to new users. Excellent admin material. --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 02:51, 13 October 2006 (CDT)
  9. Symbol support vote.svg Support --April Arcus 03:58, 13 October 2006 (CDT)




Questions for the candidate

A few generic questions to provide guidance for voters:

1. What duties, if any, would you anticipate helping with? Please check out Battlestar Wiki:Project List's for a list of projects.
A. My job and family life let's me keep an eye on the Wiki roughly 16 hours a day, which will be handy in calming disputes and preventing vandalism.
B. Fairly decent at "mopping". However, the caveat being that I can't edit my own material worth a frak :).
C. Episode Standardization
D. Podcast Transcripts
E. Quote of the day - find duplicates.
F. Much like this discussion between Steelviper and Spencerian, the only think that I will be doing that I haven't done or will do it that I can block users to prevent vandalism, rename pages , and maybe delete a page here and there mopping up. Otherwise, same-o, same-o.
2. Of your articles or contributions here, are there any about which you are particularly pleased, and why?
A. Helping to keep the Main page fresh over the hiatus, by keeping quotes, air times, and news updated. The quotes were a challenge sometimes because I had to come up with a new one almost every day.
B. Episode Standardization - Scary, worthwhile, learning experience because I had to put my "hands" on a lot of different articles, and had to make "interpretative" decisions.
C. Importing Wikipedia policies - These policies were about civility and proper behavior. I love peace and quiet and rational discussion.
D. Things you just don't do, not even in war - More civility and behavior ideas.
3. Have you been in any conflicts over editing in the past or do you feel other users have caused you stress? How have you dealt with it and how will you deal with it in the future?
A. I have never had a conflict directly with another user because I believe that sincere, civil discussion can take care any editing differences. The only time my ire was raised was during an RFA because I thought the wiki was being attacked from the "outside." Once the details of the matter was made clear, I understood and dropped the matter.
