Serenity (talkcontribsedit countpage movesblock userblock log) – Serenity has been a member here since September 1, 2006. Since that time he and I really haven't crossed paths that often. However, as I've monitored the RC I have noticed some patterns in his edits. He makes the kinds of edits that need to be made. Not just updating articles with the latest information from the episodes [1], but also making necessary maintenance edits [2], style edits [3], concision edits [4], and citation edits [5]. Most of the time when I check one of his edits it's either the case that I would have made exactly the same edit that he made, or I'm chagrined to have missed making that edit when I've recently touched it. Not only does he do good maintenance, but he generally does a good job of explaining himself, both in the edit summary [6], as well as in talk pages [7]. Serenity has exhibited the fastidiousness, commitment, and consistency I believe are requisite for adminship. --Steelviper 09:35, 2 January 2007 (CST)

  8. Symbol support vote.svg Support When I ask him to check out BattleStar Wiki while chatting with him at Ragnar Anchorage, he wasn't sure if he had any thing to contribute. Guess what! You did! --FrankieG 20:49, 2 January 2007 (CST)
  9. Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Serenity challenges the status quo, preventing us old-timers from doing things because "it's what we always do." In addition to good editing and levelheadedness, he is a worthy candidate. --Spencerian 22:16, 2 January 2007 (CST)

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. Not sure. Currently there is a lot to do with TOS articles, but I don't know that much about TOS. I've seen it of course, but I lack the detailed knowledge others have. I Guess, I could do what I'm doing at the moment: general maintance. But I'm open for suggestions.
2. Of your articles or contributions here, are there any about which you are particularly pleased, and why?
A. I haven't actually created any huge articles. Mostly I make small additions and fixes to existing articles. Bigger contributions of mine are the the summary of Pegasus (Extended Version) and the reorganization of the table at Military Ranks (RDM) together with the addition of better rank pin pictures.
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 had some edit conflicts, but not out of malice. Just many people editing an article at the same time. I got angry and started over :p
