The result was: RfA declined.. This has been open for a week. While only three comments have been made, they are all clear opposes, and I do not believe that leaving the RfA open for longer would change anything. I suggest that Red4tribe contacts an existing admin for a discussion before trying again. Red4tribe should also activate his e-mail.--Poetlister 20:24, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
Oppose. I don't want to put a damper on an enthusiastic contributor's efforts, but I don't really understand why you are so anxious to have sysop rights. In the 8-1/2 weeks you've been contributing, you've worked on less than a dozen articles and done only about 280 edits. You say that you want to clean up vandalism, but most anti-vandalism work can be done without sysop rights, and you don't seem to have tried to do any of this yet. You almost never communicate what your edits are about in edit summaries, which makes it harder for all editors to follow article development. And you apparently haven't read this entire page, which includes at the bottom links to "Past discussions", under which you will find your previous self-nomination on the page "/Archives/2008".
I can't speak for anyone else of course, but when I consider an admin candidacy, I look for someone with at least six months' experience and/or 500 edits on a wide variety of articles, or similar wiki experience shown in other projects; significant involvement not just in quotes but in project maintenance; and a demonstrated understanding of Wikiquote policies and practices, including reading the policy and maintenance pages for information. I'm afraid that you seem to fall short in all these areas at present.
Adminship is not intended as a badge of honor; it's a responsibility that includes privileges that allow editors to do certain tasks more effectively. I believe that one should demonstrate some effectiveness in those tasks before asking the community to give them more responsibility to do them. I would recommend that you examine the early edit histories of existing admins, and review the past discussions of admin nominations, to see what it is that Wikiquotians typically look for in a successful candidate. If you feel that these conditions match the kind of work you want to do here, I would recommend you engage in this kind of work before you request adminship again. ~ Jeff Q(talk) 20:26, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
Oppose Your work so far has been quite helpful, but as Jeff says, you do still have some way to go. Never mind the bottom of the page; have you read the top? "Current English Wikiquote policy is to grant administrator status to anyone who has been an active Wikiquote contributor for a while and is generally a known and trusted member of the community." Please ask yourself whether you meet these requirements.--Cato 22:12, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
Oppose As the most recently appointed admin, maybe my experience could be helpful. I was surprised to be nominated and to be endorsed so enthusiastically. (If you can find your old RfA, mine is next to it.) But I had been editing for six months and my work had ranged far more widely than yours. Please look at my contributions and contact me if you'd like to discuss.--Yehudi 07:22, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
