Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin:I've officially decided I'm not so much of a nube now, so why not try this out. It's almost been a year since I've been on the wiki, and I think I've definitely been quite active most of the time. If not, I've usually had a reason of why. I also believe I've kept good relationships with people on the wiki (hopefully) and I've never sorted myself into any type of drama. I don't have as much of experience as most people, but I think I'm learning, plus it's always good to have some new blood on team. So... Yeah, I think that's about it.

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin:mThough I've seen these elections tons of times and considered joining them, I'm actually joining them now, oof. I like to believe I have relatively good people skills and get along with most people. Plus I know what it feels like to be a noob and be completely lost and alone, and I want to be able to work with as many noobs as possible. I've been a rollback on another wiki, although the department was somewhat different, even then I get the general gist of what it takes to be rollback. I don't know how useful my coding abilities will be in OOC or S&S (if I end up there), but I'm willing to do whatever to help.

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I think I'd be a good addition because I've been active daily on this wiki for 6 months now and I've been keeping up on my rollback duties. I've tried to do all that I can to ensure that things run smoothly on this wiki, and that I have a good relationship with the users. I will admit, I've never been an admin before so this would be new to me and a whole lot of responsibilities I've never had so it'll take some learning, but I am a fast learner c: I roleplay actively and constantly, I try not to fight or cause beef, and overall I think I'd be a good addition to the team ^-^

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: Hii guys, as you all know I'm Time and I have been a rollback for the past three months. I believe I've been incredibly active and try to help out wherever I can, such as helping with policies, helping with the new sorting forums and clearing out the year categories. I've been a consistent member of S&S, which includes sorting characters and frequently keeping the UMR updated. I try to be as social, friendly, and interactive with other users as much as I can and I believe I am on good terms with the vast majority of users on the site. I am also rather flexible with my own ideas and plans. I believe I have placed a lot of my time and effort into this wiki in the past few months and want to help contribute as much as I can in the time I spend here.

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: As a member of AI, I have had a hand in the planning of several current and upcoming expansions, and frequently engaged in the discussion of activity-related things and ideas with my peers and higher-ups from the team. I believe I've always made sure to let them know of any ideas and/or suggestions that I have in mind, and have been receptive to their thoughts as well. For my activity, I know that I'm significantly less active than the other two candidates running alongside me (Time and Blue), mainly because of schoolwork, but I've always made sure to let people know when I'll be gone so that they can anticipate my absence and react accordingly. I've also utilized the Admin Team Status Page to inform people of these anticipated absences. For those concerned of my future level of activity, fret not. After August, I only have one term left in college, and it should be a relatively hassle-free one assuming that I survive my thesis during this current term. After December, I'll be graduating and will be taking a long break before I begin looking for a job, so yes, I will have a lot of free time on my hands in the following weeks and months, and I would like to devote a large portion of that time to this wiki and helping the admin team in any way I can.

In general, I'd like to think that I'm a helpful person, and someone who'd extend assistance to those who need it. I don't wanna sound pretentious, but I've always let anyone who's expressed interest in using my page and bubble codings use them, I don't think I've ever turned anyone down, so far. I have good relations with everyone, I'm pretty active on chat, I'm an experienced coder, and I guess I'm always nice? Except maybe during an incident or two. Oof.

Lastly, I'd like to talk about experience. I've always associated the OOC Department as the one involved in all the cleanup and upkeep work, categories, templates, and just general maintenance overall, and I can say that I have great experience in that department, having served as a Crat of a similarly structured department on an affiliate wiki. I've also been a previous admin in this wiki before, albeit it was during the old times (ca. 2012), and I've had become rollback twice since 2017. So yes, I'd like to think I'm familiar with the wiki and I know what I'm doing, but I am always willing to learn from the more experienced people, and I am very teachable. As for plans if I do win, I've been thinking of re-designing several pages that have outdated codes (including an overhaul of the Houses), and coding those that don't have any yet. I might still push through with this even if I don't win, so yay! Anyway, this has been long enough, and I don't want to bore you guys to death, so I'll end it here. Thanks and I hope you consider me! :)

Any other things you want to add: I'd like to wish both Blue and Time (and other applicants who'll apply later on) the best of luck! I love you guys and I honestly would be happy with whoever wins this. I'd also like to say that even if I don't win, I'll still continue to do my best and extend my helping hand to AI, and for the wiki in general. This place is amazing and magical, and I'm happy to be part of it.

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: Hello friends, I guess I'll try to make this straight to the point.

Friendly: I believe I am both trusted and liked well enough within the community. I try my best to be both civil and kind to other users on the wiki. Furthermore, I believe I am extremely accessible, especially with discord, and do try to go out of my way to welcome new users.

Activity: I'm pretty devoted to this wiki, as I believe I have proved with my level of activity over the past eight (seven?) months. Furthermore, I have been able to balance more than one wiki from the moment I joined and I know how to balance my time effectively.


Experience: I believe I have given a lot of effort into my role in the administration team. As I have stated in my last 'election vote' (whatever you call it), I have tried helping out where I can, such as categories. Though I understand I have never been a bureaucrat before, I am willing to give it my best shot :)

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: Well, I suppose it does come without saying; I've been around a whole while, and will be around a whole while more, no matter what. I'm committed to DARP as a whole, and while I get that OOC is a big role, I will do my best to do it well. I think most everyone can approach me with whatever and I will listen to it. I like to think I can be reasonably mature and respectful enough to not make wrong decisions. I'm willing to put in the work, if I am given the chance.

I just don't think you're suited to be in that highest of positions. I'm sorry, Soph. I just think you're best suited to stay as an admin and never reach for crat. I don't think you've changed, honestly, and the admin team really doesn't need that in the upcoming months. You help less than you think you do, when I was above you, you caused more problems with the newer users. You treated quite a few of them as if they were stupid or as if they needed your pity. That's definitely not a suitable quality.

J-hope-png-4 I feel that Chase came at you side-ways on a very personal scale instead of one from a responsible voter's perspective. That being said, I think you're great and should know how much you are valued as an admin. I'm sorry for what Chase said, and I know this against the against isn't a real thing, but someone needed to say it.

  • Reasons why you think this user would be a good addition as an admin:
    • Where do I even begin? Kib has been one of us for many years - disproportionate longer than I, and probably you, have been. She has experience in the team as rollback and admin, which I think is really important right now. She has experience as bureaucrat, too, which is worth much regardless of the fact that that isn't the position I'm nominating her for. She's a wonderful person who cares much about every user, and always tries to be fair and honest in all she does.

      Since Spring, Anya has been one of the most active users we have. Sure, she may not be all that active right now, but she's got a worthy excuse: the ten days of repentance. And I think we can all agree that real life - especially religion - should come ahead of the wiki. Furthermore, she'll be returning the evening of the 19th. Past that day, there's no foreseeable events that could hinder her activity and capability to serve the team well.

      Anya would be the perfect addition to the team. Because she hasn't been on the team in a long while, she'll bring in that fresh perspective we need while still possessing experience. She's been one of our biggest contributors and has given us some of the biggest hits here, such as Witchagram. She's got experience with activities, too, which is pretty important considering that's the department I'm nominating her for. She, with Ellie and Soey, ran the International Quidditch League when it was first starting out, before it became an AI-run thing.

      Overall, I completely support her with this nomination.
  • Any Other Things you want to add:
    • She's given me her permission to nominate her, so no need to worry on that front!

Reasons why you think this user would be a good addition as a rollback: Hannah is a very helpful and kind user, the perfect user that would be an HR rollback. She always tries to be active, and always gives reasons why she's busy and I think that she's shown dedication to the wiki. Even though she's a newer user, I believe that having her in HR will give a new POV to the admin team and the wiki as a whole. I trust Hannah, and I know that many other users do as well. She'll be a wonderful addition to the team, as she's already a wonderful addition to the wiki userbase.

Reasons why you think this user would be a good addition as a rollback: Lyss is a dedicated user who's been here for so many years. Despite having previous knowledge and understanding of how the admin team works - as she's been rollback, administrator AND bureaucrat - at one point our longest-serving bureaucrat, I believe she has what it takes to fill the role perfectly. Lyss has always been mature, helpful and friendly, and she's had brilliant experience as crat when it comes to mediating and resolving conflict. Also, she actually works in HR. She's the manager of a HR department. This is literally her gig. So yeah. She's a smart choice for the job.

  • Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin:
    • Stepping down was the hardest decision I've ever made, and in less than a week, I was already regretting it. I didn't regret leaving my position as bureaucrat, but I regretted leaving the administration team overall. My work here is not done. I think the past week has proven that. I contributed restlessly, trying to ease the growing tensions and strengthen interpersonal relations among users. A prime example is when I used the Aid & Support channel to create an open line of communication between the userbase, where everyone aired their emotions and expressed all concerns about the going ons of the wiki (esp. the administration team).

      I don't think I'll ever get tired of helping out in the team. This has been my home for four years. You're kind of bound to find a home in the people within the community. I've tried to be as open and kind-hearted as possible towards everyone, and like to think I'm a well-liked users (with, of course, some exceptions, because I highly doubt the whole community loves me). I know how to work towards a goal, which I think is essential to being in the OOC department. I look forward to a change of scenery as well, after having worked for many months in AI (whose members are truly underrated; I vastly underestimated the time creating expansions would consume whilst creating the Tournament, Killers & a couple more... so, AI, I admire you), and approximately 3 of my 3.5 years on the team in S&S.

      I have experience with OOC work; I've helped clear Hogwarts, I archive consistently, I'm keeping constant track of the User Model Registration, I helped new OOC Head Time clearing year categories, and I've written several of the policies currently in place (i.e the more controversial ones like new exotics (clairvoyants), pregnancies in Hogwarts, model reservation rules, etc.) and I know I have what it takes to help rewrite all the ones we have thus far that need working. Likewise, I know how to run a wiki; I think that's a bit obvious, but I wanted to stress the knowledge that I have and the extensiveness of my skillset. I'm ready to take on OOC, no matter what the work might be.
  • Any Other Things you want to add:
    • I'm acknowledging that I stepped down approximately two weeks ago because real life has gotten a bit hectic for me. While this continues to be the case, I've actually dropped Forensics, decided against doing the Oratory League, and have decided to pull out of some extracurriculars. Coupled with some unforeseen circumstances, my workload has decreased exponentially. Furthermore, I continue to take two AP courses, but after reviewing the syllabuses, I've determined they wouldn't hinder my activity and capability to be a full-time administrator and active user in this userbase.

      Although some people may continue to be skeptical about my capabilities to continue as a consistently active admin team member, a fact that I respect and will not deny anyone, I think I've also proven myself between the time period in which I stepped down and now, seeing as I was the one who initiated the conversation that had everyone confessing all their feelings. Truth be told, it's as if I were still on the team, just... without the title. And, of course, being a part of a department is vastly different from running one, seeing as I'm helping rather than overseeing the functioning of... well, a very essential part of the wiki.

      Nevertheless, the decision is ultimately the userbase's and I'll respect the outcome. I'd like to bid all potential opponents a very good luck, though! :)

  • Reasons why you think this user would be a good addition as an admin:
    • Soc has been around since 2015. Although her activity fluctuated for a while, Soc has been around since 2015 and knows how the wiki is ran very, very well - she was even a rollback once. She's well-acquainted with the most important aspects of the wiki, and I'd like to say she's well-liked by everyone, no matter who they're friends with and the kind of attitude they have. Soc is always impartial, and I think that's very important for an HR member. Especially admin.

      Soc is everyone's best friend. Really, who doesn't like this girl? It'd be a crime against humanity not to like her. She's smart and she's nice and she's literally always there to provide advice and support regardless of who you are. She's got everyone's best interests in mind, and wow she is so good at diffusing tension. She's always got a quick remark at hand to make the situation bearable, and she's got the best advice for when all parties have calmed down.

      Soc is always involved. Honestly, you look at any dynamic, and odds are she's a part of it. She's always as active as possible in the IC world, creating connections with as many people as possible and making the IC world a better place. She strives to create ties with everyone. No matter what your character does for a living, odds are she'll have a character she'd be more than happy to RP with with you. And this makes her a mega good helper and a massive contributor to the IC world and how it runs.

      Soc always wants to RP. She... never says no. She might have like 78 RPs running, but if you approach her and ask for another, she'll jump right on board. Her posts are consistent and she almost never forgets about the RPs she's got. And if she does? She's so kind about it, apologizing profusely about it. Soc's got the best intentions and the biggest heart, and it's very, very refreshing. It's the kind of refreshing that we need in the wiki.

      Soc is a man's best friend. While she hasn't been on the team more than once, and this is a big jump, it has its advantages. She isn't affiliated with previous "scandals" and would have a new, fresh perspective as she joins the team. Of course you may think this lack of experience isn't good, or that she should start as rollback, but why? She's proved she can handle being admin, she's devoted to the wiki as it is and would die in the wiki's name, and she's just... a really good helper? Like, seriously? We'd be honored to have her in the team. Nobody cares as fiercely as Soc does about the wiki and its userbase.

      Soc will always be here for you. Have you ever had any major problems you've never been able to talk to anyone else about? Have you ever died to say something but have felt very intimidated? Soc's literally the perfect person to talk to. Like I said, the advice she provides is so, so good, and she'll always honor your privacy. She'll talk with the admins for you, she'll make sure you feel comfortable, and she'll make sure DARP is your home as much as it is hers.
  • Any Other Things you want to add:
    • Nominating Soc has been an honor, truly - especially as I know she'd be a wonderful addition to the HR department, and would do so, so well leading it. Furthermore, I'd like to bid every other nominee a very good luck!

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: Having been part of the wiki for 6+ years now, I'm fairly clearly devoted to not only the people on this wiki, but also the wiki itself. While I don't edit every day, and sometimes I get days where I don't check the wiki, I do try my best to never lose contact with the family. I'm also a fairly decent coder, and I always aim to help new and old users - I even attempt to do some recruiting on Reddit, and often make suggestions to the admin teams that I think I would help. My only goal is to help the wiki I love.

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I might not be able to write fancy code from scratch, but my skills with Google, knowledge of existing coding resources, willingness to reach out for help when necessary, and experience with code allow me to help fix errors, find answers to coding questions people might have, and use code effectively. I have no issue speaking up when I have a suggestion or other input--as I'm sure most of you know--and while I will admit that I have gone about it incorrectly in the past, it's important to have someone who is willing to speak up even if some people won't like what they have to say. I've been on this wiki--and, quite frankly, unable to stay away--for going on six years now. Over that time, my activity has had its ups and down, but I've never been inactive or left the wiki for any period of time.

DARP is my home, and the few times I've tried to leave have never lasted more than a day or two. We've got our issues, and we don't all always get along, but this wiki and its users are important to me and I want to see them thrive.
Other notes: Good luck to everyone!

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I believe that I would be a good addition to the admin team because of my dedication to this wiki. Despite being a little busy, I've set aside time to be active and make this wiki a priority of mine. I RP actively, I'm a trusted member of the community, I keep up on my RB duties, and I've established myself here. This wiki is my home, and I love it dearly and I want to see it thrive. I think that being an admin I can help this wiki in whatever it needs, and I'll be here for the users.

Being an admin would be a dream come true to me, and I've run a few times in the past but have fallen short. I believe I'm ready now, more than ever, to become an admin. I hope that my reputation is able to speak for me, and my actions here on the wiki as well.
Any Other Things you want to add: Good luck to everyone else running, and I know that whoever gets picked will do an amazing job as admin <3

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: While they're are probably plenty of other people on the wiki who have been around longer than me and deserve this position more than I do, I still felt as if I had some footing to apply. I don't edit as much as everyone else, which is obvious, but I like to think I have some sort of presence on the wiki. I could write an essay about why I'd be a good addition to be administration team as an administrator but I think it can be easily summed up in a few bullet points.

  • Coding Skills
    • It says in the requirements you need to know how to code a wiki correctly, which I can do
    • I don't know on what level that will particularly help, but in OOC, I can see these abilities being really helpful
  • Organization
    • I admit, I have a messy personality, but I like organization and I already stalk people's characters so why not stalk them to make sure everything is up to date?
  • Activity
    • As the first semester of my final year in high school ends, I'm going to have a lot of free time, like a lot, so I'll be around pretty much all the time
    • Hope you don't get sick of me

Any Other Things you want to add: Whoever else applies, good luck, and honestly, I'll be just as happy if you get the position over me because like I said earlier, a lot of users have been around a lot longer than me and know the wiki a lot better than I do.

Jaye

User Name:Jaye

Amount of Edits:28k+

Amount of Characters:5

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: Jaye's a very welcome and refreshing outlook on the wiki. She's smart, and dedicated, and she loves us and this wiki. Time and time again, she's proven her faith in this wiki and is a shining light for the future of this wiki. Jaye, I believe, needs to be part of the admin team. She's not only full of amazing ideas, but she's an active and iconic member of this community. Not only that, but she has an extreme amount of previous experience in multiple departments and I believe can help contribute further than she already has. Jaye has led the AI and S&S department as well as an admin for the OOC Department. Not to mention her experience leading other wikis, such as Camp Half-Blood, Camp Jupiter, and Ilvermorny. She is a wonderful leader, and a great admin in every community she has been part of, all of which have had wonderful results, but not enough interest by other users due to time and busyness. That being said, she would be a wonderful re-addition to this admin team.

Madeye

User Name: TheGoodDeath

Amount of Edits: 11,466 and counting

Amount of Characters: Four

Reasons why you think they'd be a good addition as an admin: Madeye originally joined the wiki waaaay back in 2013 and came back to us this past August after a bit of a hiatus, and since then she's been consistently and reliably active. She has a good grasp of coding and knows the wiki well enough to direct people to those who can help with a situation if she herself isn't able to. She has wonderful ideas for characters and storylines and is more than familiar enough with the houses to do a sorting forum justice - not to mention her attention to detail and penchant for thoughtful consideration. On top of that, because of the time she spent away from the wiki, she's stayed out of a good chunk of wiki drama, and in the months she's been back she hasn't been overly involved with the drama, and I think it's important that we have a bit of "fresh blood" on the team, so to speak - even though Madeye does have past experience from a few years ago. Madeye is reliable, chill, and well-read when it comes to Harry Potter and this wiki, and she's a marvelous addition to this community and she would be the same for the admin team.

Administrator and Bureaucrat (January 2019)

Note: The newly elected admin will fill the department of the admin being promoted to bureaucrat.


Administrator

Jinae

User Name: IconicUsername, also known as TheRebelOfSlytherin

Amount of Characters: 13
Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I'm gonna be completely honest, I don't have much to put here. I've only been a true part of this community for seven months despite joining two years ago. However, I've ran once so I might as well try again. My resume isn't compact (I've only been a rollback for four months after all), but I've done some things and know my way around Wikia in general, even if I don't know DARP itself inside out.

  1. I can code. Yeah, this is kind of an obvious one. If you've known me long enough, you know I've made an extensive list of 8 character pages and 4 word bubbles as well as coded a multitude of other things, including the main page and the Hogwarts locations revamps. What this means essentially is I would be great as an OOC admin considering since admins need to be able to code and OOC is all about organization, which I kind of thrive on
  2. I've been involved in Admin politics for awhile. More obscure fact is, I've been a part of a great deal of wikis. A good chunk of them have died due to abandonment or that the fandom itself was loosing members but I've held some type of authority on every other one. I've actually headed two wikis before, and I know what it takes to be admin. A lot of time, a lot of commitment, and a whole lot of confidence. I may not of been admin on DARP but that doesn't mean I don't know what they do.
  3. I can bring something to every table. Okay, yeah, we can all agree OOC is my strong suit but that doesn't mean I can't work in other in departments. I'm pretty versatile as long as I know what I'm doing, and I tend to do know what I'm doing. I've worked in C&L before on both DARP and CHB (AKA Claiming Department on CHB)  so I'm not a stranger to the department. While I've never worked in the AI department, I know how it works and I'm actually working on a dueling tournament which naturally would fall under AI. Plus I enjoy planning events and dynamics, and being able to plan expansions would also help me personally to better my writing skills. I don't have giant plans right now but I'm ready to work on short term expansions. And, I think I've already covered OOC in point 1.
  4. I'm friendly. Or at least, I hope I am. I like new people, and I never turn down a roleplay. I'm usually always reachable and will respond to you within in 24 hours regardless of how busy I am. I can't read minds, I don't know anyone's opinion on me but I like to think I'm a generally approachable figure.

'Any Other Things you want to add:

  1. I admit, I don't command as well as other people. I'm soft and overly empathetic, and I know that. I don't like confronting people alright, it makes me feel guilty even if they deserve it. I'm afraid of offending people. But this could also help me better connect to the userbase. There's been a recent disconnect between the admin team and the regular userbase as well as within in the admin team, and if I have to shout a little louder to fix it, so be it.
  2. I haven't been around for too long. Yeah, and I think about it every time elections come around. Every other candidate has more edits than me, has been a part of the community longer than me, and I know that. But on the brightside, maybe someone who hasn't been around as long will bring a fresher outlook on DARP to the admin team.

Essentially, the TL; DR is, I have experience, I'm nice, and I'm versatile. That's all, I think. I don't know if I've proved myself to anyone but writing this is helping me reflect so y'know, that's something. Good luck to anyone else running and happy new year! Let's be real, 2018 felt a lot longer than we thought it would be.

Jaye

  • Username: Koserein, formerly JayeMalik'
  • Number of edits: Until the moment I applied, I had just under 31k edits.
  • Number of characters: 7
  • Reasons for applying: Because I wasn't sure what, specifically, I should put, I've decided to make a list of all my reasons.
    • I have a spotless record. Since the moment I joined the community on that fateful day in the month of July 2014, I've had a spotless record. I've never been banned from the site, nor do I have a record of being kicked from chat; discord or otherwise. And while I've issued several warnings and weighed in on different punishments, I've never been at the receiving end of said warnings. (Thank God.) I know my way around the policies, having helped modify a couple of them several years ago, and am known to follow wiki policies to the t. I abide by guidelines and am always prepared to follow whatever the bureaucrats say - granted it's for the better of the community.
    • I have big plans. Of course, there are periods of time in which a wiki becomes stagnant. Oftentimes, it's because the administration team is leading very busy lives and cannot cope with the pressure leading a community such as DARP involves. While this hasn't been the case in a long time, I also don't want to be considered into a position with more responsibilities without outlining what I have in mind in the case the wiki reaches that point of hibernation - or as I like to call them, dry periods. Some of these can come into effect already, though; why leave it for when something happens and not just put them into play to prevent us from getting there? Some teeter into OOC territory, whereas other teeter into AI & C&L territories respectively. Because I don't know where specifically I'll be allocated, I may as well express my wishes for all three departments.

      For starters, should I be promoted into the C&L department, I already have a general idea for a new, more efficient sorting forum - one for students, one for adults. I'm also working closely with two other rollbacks to revamp and reintroduce the nymphs to the community. I'm also brainstorming to introduce several new species to the wiki that will hopefully give exotics a fresher look. While it's a little bit tough, considering we don't really have a lot to work on, a revamp of current exotics we have (like ghosts & part-goblins) is a really good place to start at. Regarding AI, I sort of might already have a couple of expansion ideas that I'm not too keen on voicing here, if only because I'm gonna try and pitch them when they're complete and I figured spoiling it here wouldn't be too good an idea. (But they're gonna be good, I promise you.)

      As more of a short-term solution, I know quidditch has become quite repetitive, and have actually been thinking of ways to solve it. Two users came up with the idea of dueling, and I like the idea a lot; there's a lot of stuff to work out, which I'm fairly certain Audrey is in the process of doing, but it might be a viable solution. There are also other events, such as potions tournaments, charm tournaments, and we could even put a twist on quidditch. (Read: intro to quodpot.) Why not alternate between events? And, regarding the OOC department, the ideas I had revolve mostly about Hogwarts & the Ministry. While some might argue it's AI jurisdiction, minute things such as House Cup point monitoring might be moreso their territory. Of course, as time progresses, I'll probably come up with a lot more, but this is just a general idea of what I'm thinking.
    • It means everything to me. This community once strongly disliked me, did you know? I'm not going to sugarcoat it; 2014 wasn't my year, and I was a really crappy newbie. It was mutual, though, as my first few months were long and stressful enough to deter me from staying on full-time. It had a generally unwelcoming feel to it. Fortunately, I was able to see past it and connect with a lot of users over time. It's been four and a half years by now, and honestly? Staying on DARP was, and continues to be, one of the best decisions I've made, despite obvious ups and downs. That's why I intend to promise to devote as much time as I can to the wiki and help it thrive to the best of my abilities, no matter which department I'm a part of and which position in the administration team I hold.
    • I have years worth of experience. Arguably the most important aspect of my application is the years worth of experience I have as part of the administration team. I've been on DARP's team since very late 2014 or very early 2015, making it around four - or almost four years - of experience, as I've been out of the team since I initially joined it... what? Three, four months? But beyond that, I've done numerous things. While my most notable achievement is undoubtedly becoming C&L's Head of Department, I'm sure some might recall my stint as OOC admin and AI Head. I have the experience required for all three departments to more than make up for my quick jump from rollback to admin. As part of my achievements in C&L, I reworked the forums not once, but twice now, and have introduced many of the policies we have in effect today. I was also at the helm of the introduction of several special abilities (such as clairvoyants) and worked diligently with the rework/clarification of several others.

      As part of AI, I was actually the one who spearheaded coming up with and planning the Triwizard Tournament that transpired during last IC year. Furthermore, I was the one who came up with the idea of an expansion involving serial killers, and was thoroughly involved with its planning until I ultimately stepped down due to reasons that will be listed further below. There was once a point in time where I ran Hogwarts Quidditch, I led a revitalization effort for the Ministry several IC years ago, and have always been keenly involved with Hogwarts (from an OOC perspective). Even while I was off the team, I still tried to make it in time to stalk the team meetings and provide hopefully meaningful insight (I think I helped a lot, too, suggesting the implementation of the support forums which I think will be voted on later, throwing around the idea of an HR department in the Ministry, etc).

      I'm more than familiar with all three departments and how they function, and am wholly prepared to take on the responsibilities being an admin for one of the three entails.
    • I'm ready for constructive criticism. While I refuse to say the admin team isn't receptive to constructive criticism, because it is, I want to emphasize the fact the fact that I'm prepared to face constructive criticism. Being an admin is a learning experience - how to lead, how to get better, etc. It's not going to be an easy feat, especially with the general discontentment among regular users, but I'm always willing to listen to others and discover what ways to improve as a user, friend, admin, etc.
    • I like interacting with newer users. There was a point during 2015 I was really suspicious of every new user. It was somewhere around the time trolls wanted to overtake the wiki. I know my friendliness took a dip there, but I've improved a lot. I like to think of myself as very amicable and trustworthy with new users. I could probably improve a lot in different areas, but for the better part, no matter which department I join, I'm ready to spend a little more time making the wiki newbie-friendly and helping them out in every way I can.
  • Additional comments:
    • Yes, I did step down from bureaucrat twice. Unfortunately, the fact that I've stepped down twice from bureaucrat puts me at a slight disadvantage. However, I hope I can calm all your nerves by explaining that no, I didn't want to step down either time. Being a bureaucrat was a great experience, and I learned a lot from it. I didn't want to shy away from my responsibilities or the community I've come to love so fiercely. But, as it turns out, having a family who considered the wiki the bane of your existence - and the direct causation of your 'confusion' regarding your sexuality, tend to put a halt to all your plans. However, I'm happy to say I did gain their approval to join the wiki again. That begs the question: why did you leave the second time?

      As I'm sure some of you know, my mental health has deteriorated over time. Whilst it's no longer as bad as it once was, that period of October & November were unfortunately very dire for me. I was going through the stress of college applications, I was having constant breakdowns, my AP courses were killing me, and was overall unfit to be a rollback. I cracked under the pressure and was no longer the bureaucrat that DARP needed. Thus, I made the decision - with a heavy heart - to step down. While some might see it as a brave moment, acknowledging I had bitten more than I could chew, some might see it as a weak decision and might not trust me to become admin again.

      All this being said, I'm prepared to dedicate my free time to the community and help it in every way it needs.
    • Yes, I just became a rollback. However, I don't think that should impede me from becoming an administrator. I have the experience - years of it, as a matter of fact - and I wholeheartedly intend to devote myself to the community as the most stressful part of my high school career comes to an anticlimactic conclusion. Furthermore, if anyone thinks otherwise, I entirely understand!
    • This ended up being longer than I thought. I'm really sorry for the amount of things I wrote down; I just wanted to ensure I'd be seen as a good candidate to fill up whichever position becomes vacant. After all, it's not really every day you have the chance to become admin.
    • Good luck to everyone! It's the holidays, and none of us should be stressing over who becomes administrator and who becomes bureaucrat. At the end of the day, one thing is for certain: everyone here is equally adept at a multitude of things and will make a very fine admin/crat. I bid everyone in the running good luck, a happy holidays, and a great 2019! WE'RE Jsig2 VALID.

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as a Bureaucrat: I feel I would be a good crat because of my love for DARP and how much I put into this wiki. I've tried my best to be an active member and RP whenever I can, accepting an RP and trying to keep it alive. I feel I've been a good admin and tried my best to keep up on my duties and be active in the responsibilities that are given to me. I know that my reputation speaks more than what I could say here, and I hope that it's a good one haha. I have big hopes for this wiki and if I become crat I know that I can help implement those ideas and work with Brocky and Time to make this wiki more amazing and better than it already is. I know I haven't done anything phenomenal, but that doesn't mean I should be discredited for the position. Even if I don't get crat, I'll try my best to still help the wiki and be consistently active in whatever is needed from me :)

Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: Hi everyone! I always think with things like this there should be some form of introduction of sorts but, really, I'm just gonna get straight to the point. On a person to person level, as a member of our user base, I like to think that I'm quite a friendly presence that is largely approachable. I've not ever hesitated to roleplay with someone (replying, however, is a different story - being distracted is the eternal mood) and I'm always available for anyone to speak to me, whether it be to plan ships or rant about irl things. Likewise, in recent weeks, I've been taking steps to further promote unity within the admin team, largely down to the fact that I truly believe our current team is among the best incarnations. Though perhaps not on this wiki, I've been a member of an admin team on some wiki since 2013 and, since 2014, I've been an admin on a wiki; totalling in 5 years experience altogether. Whilst I might not have had purely OOC experience, I've been close to previous heads and thus I've had a sense of what's expected of an OOC bureaucrat. Likewise, I've been very involved in the organisational side of AI; I've organised the Serial Killer expansion and, on CHBRP, organised a wiki-wide event and as such I think I could handle the responsibilities of being organised as the OOC crat.

I don't have anything else to say other than I wish everyone who's running good luck!! <3

  • Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I've been back since July for a consistent time period, and I think I've been back long enough to no longer be considered a noob. I was a rollback years ago on my old account, but I can't say I was any good at it, because I was young and inexperienced. I feel now that I'm back and more mature that I'd be a better asset to the staff team. I feel I get along with most people here, and don't believe I have any bad blood between myself and any other users. I know what it's like being a noob. Hell, DARP introduced me to the concept of rp all those years back, and coming back last year with everything now put me back in that spot, so helping new people, especially those working on their first character, would let me help them and pay forwards the help all of you gave to me, whether that be on this current account or my old no longer used one. I know my edit count is still low, but I feel that I would make a good contribution to the site.

  • Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I've been an active (more or less so depending on the time period) member of this community for more than a year now - I joined in October of 2017, to be precise. By now, it's only natural that I know the wiki quite well and am interested in helping run it. In fact, I have run for rollback two times (if I recall correctly). I like every single user here, no exceptions, and I choose to believe they like me as well. I have no history of conflict with any other user. I'm nowhere near being one of the longest-running members, but I've heard stories of what this wiki used to be, and I want it to still be at its finest and reach its full potential. And when that happens - because I believe it will happen - I want to know I was a part of making it reach that potential.

  • Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: Hi! I've been on this wiki for almost a year and a half now, which does not compare to how long some others have been around... but it's still a decent amount of time. Definitely long enough to say I know this wiki quite well. I have had my up and downs. I was a rollback once before, but I ended up having to step down due to the fact I was in a bad place. I, as well, also left the wiki for a few days and my activity pivoted, but everything has situated in real life and I'm glad to say I'm in a better place now to believe I could become rollback again and help contribute in helping the wiki. I'd like to say I have stayed away as much as possible from any unnecessary drama and that hopefully I have kept good relationships with most, if not all the users. I really do love Darp, and I want to help and be apart of this wiki and it's growth as much and as long as possible.

  • Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: My greatest strength for the position of rollback is my experience. I have been a member of DARP since around the fall of 2014. Which would be a little over four years at this point - and the majority of that was spent serving as a member of the Admin Team. I was even a Bureaucrat at one point - but that’s not all that I can feel that I can bring to the table. I feel that I also have a very good understanding of what it means to be a member of the admin team. There are there to represent the needs of the greater DARPian community, a fact I understand, and that to be quite frank, I feel has been lacking of late. If elected, I would make it my mission to insure that every voice on DARP is heard, that nobody is considered more important than anyone else, no matter their position on DARP.to add: I wish everyone who is running the best of luck, and may the person who will best represent the needs of the user base win.

Livi

User Name: Livi
Amount of Edits: 5,628 has more on another account
Amount of Characters: 11
Reasons why you think they would be a good addition as an admin:Livi has been on this wiki a long time, so she's seen it grow and change. Not only does she have the perspective of an older user, but arguably, she has the perspective of a newer user as she really only became involved with the wiki within the last year or so. She's a very charismatic individual that can easily talk to most people, and she cares about everyone on the wiki, which i think makes her an asset, as it also means when she does things, she thinks of others. As we know, she's also one of the coding titans on the wiki, besides Audrey Brocky Catty etc. Her being on the team means you can utilize her talents more.

For the specific department, Characters and Locations, I'd like to highlight a few key reasons why she would fit this role. Firstly, like many others on the wiki, she's done many characters histories, and has become extremely familiar with what should be required in them. Secondly, she's been very good at letting people know when she is active and when not, and is generally active on the wikia. This is imperative history to have as many admins may be good, but prior experience shows them to be unreliable and disappearing. Thirdly, as far as I know, she has good chemistry with the current people within the department. Anyone who has been in a position of administration knows that, when people can get along, the tasks within the department itself can become smoother, and there is less likelihood of misunderstandings.These all may seem trivial, but these are all reasons why past rbs and admins have not worked out. She also has experience as a sorter, so she certainly knows the role, however she had to step down due to reasons out of her control and that the administration knows.

I'd like to end my plea with a final, more personal note. As you may know, Livi and I are friends, but I think she's one of the major reasons I'm still on this wikia. I think that alone should say something about how powerful Livi can be, and I think is a positive trait, especially when considering newer users who might feel intimidated and hope for someone to reach out to them.

Thank you all for your consideration, please vote for Livi!

Rollback and Administrator (May 2019)

Rollback

Note: There will be five newly elected rollbacks; one for Characters & Locations, two for Activity Implementation, one for Human Resources, and then one for the open spot left from the admin vote. Remember, if you are applying for the position of HR rollback position that you will need one person to nominate you, and two people to support you in order to qualify for the position. For the other two rollbacks, you must have someone in the user base (not the admin team) nominate you.

Liss
  • User Name: Nebuliss
     
  • Amount of Edits: 28,321
     
  • Amount of Characters: 10
     
  • Reasons why you think she would be a good addition as an rb: Liss is an old lady in wiki years and she's been here through thick, through thin, from expansion to expansion, etc. Like, in perspective of ic years, she's been here for like 20 or 30. That being said, she's seen what works, what doesn't, and she's stuck around through all kinds of messy drama. Clearly, she has a loyalty to DARP, and a commitment to it even if sometimes yeeting seems like a better plan. She has also been admin countless of times, including, I beleive, once as a bcrat. She has years of experience working on the team, we all know and love her. She's overqualified for this position, but that just means she'll do better at it.

    I think something that's been really impressive about her is her accessiblity to different people for rp. I distinctly remember she was the first person I ever rped with her, and it helped me become comfortable with DARP. I think that warmth, coupled with her experience, is what makes a perfect candidate for C&L. Please vote for Liss, I believe in her ability and you should too.

Manolo
  • Who am I nominating: Manolo (user:Zany Knave)
  • Edits: Around 6k
  • Characters: 12 or something like that
  • Why?: In the simplest terms, I believe Manolo would be an amazing addition to the team, because he's shown such dedication to the wiki. In his own words, he is ready for the responsibility, and I believe he is. If you don't believe me, then here's some anonymous words from anonymous people;

    "He's so good at arguments. He can shut down any argument civilly."

    "He has experience. I'm not 100% sure about darp but I know he has experience from other wikias."

    "He is singelhandedly keeping chb alive. He cares for it so much, and he shares the same love for darp. Adding him to the team would mean adding a dedicated, hard working member that genuinely cares about the community hes working for."

So, as you can see, Zany Knave would be a Spectacular addition to this team, and could bring in some well-overdue peace, and I am sure, prosperity. Besides, as you can see, there are plenty of people who would love to have him in the position! Plus, he is very active and a wonderful writer and friend to have.

  • Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I would hope that throughout the years, you've all seen Vic's dedication to the wiki. She's hardworking, she has good ideas, and she's very reliable. It should go without saying Vic is among the best team members we had. If she weren't, I certainly wouldn't be nominating her for rollback, least of all for what is arguably the most important department in terms of activity: Activity Implementation. She's adept at a number of things, and has the experience the position demands. Vic has also been, if I'm remembering correctly, in AI before, so this isn't her first rodeo. She's hosted smaller activities such as balls and Hogwarts parties, and has been active throughout the duration of the Serial Killer Expansion. She's very strong-willed and has an admirable passion for DARP, and I know she has what it takes to make sure this community doesn't fall through the cracks. She doesn't mess around, and she takes her responsibilities seriously. Being someone so inclined to be active in the community [OOC and IC] - especially while being someone people like and trust - is what makes her so good for this. Right now, I'd say, is the most important time to vote in people we genuinely believe will work for the betterment of this community. I just hope you all trust in her as much as I do.

  • Amount of Edits: 2,542 (JayeTheMofo) + 28,081 (JayeMalik') + 227 (Ildsjel) = 30,850 (total)
  • Amount of Characters: 5
  • Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: If her impressive 30k total amount of edits wasn't shocking enough, Jaye is also ranked Number Seven on the overall Leadership board of achievements on DARP wikia. That proves to me that Jaye has shown time and time again that she can raise to the plate and hit the ball out of the park with her empathy, kind soul and determination to be an active member of this community. Therefore, I am nominating her for the rollback position in Activity Implementation. She has plenty of experience and always has good suggestions to help better the wikia and her passion is undeniable. She has run events, moderated DARP over many years and has been a bcrat that I'll certainly never forget. She's versatile and adaptable and I believe there isn't one department she hasn't dedicated blood, sweat and tears to over the years. Before she had to step back and take a break, Jaye was an optimistic team member with grand ideas and a drive to bring activity back to DARP. I have 100% faith that she is worth re-electing again and despite the times she has stepped down, I view Jaye as a sort of phoenix that has risen from the ashes to bring about a new era. No matter what happens, she always comes back swinging and this time is no different. This team needs Jaye, I assure you that.

  • Reasons why you think they would be a good addition as an admin: I don't know if you've ever talked to him, but Migs (Sterek, Hale, whatever you know him by) is a walking fountain gush of friendliness. He's an old timer and isn't a stranger to community conflicts, activity dips, and immaturity - all three of which he has dealt with in previous runs as RB. Having been in S&S and AI before, he doesn't lack exposure to how things work. What he doesn't have in edit count he makes up for communication and approachability; I personally have never seen him mishandle a situation. He came back recently but is already kicking up on the activity streak. Any halt or stagger to this has low chances, since his job begins in September and that's a long way to go. Considering all of this, why would you not want him running for HR?

  • Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: Hello! It's Livi here. Currently, I'm RB for C&L and have been for several months. During my time in the admin team, I've mostly stuck to sorting, but I've decided that I want a new challenge. Over my six year period on DARP, I've been on the admin team a couple times as RB and Admin. As stated above, I've mostly been a Sorter but I actually have experience in all departments bar HR. I've proven myself capable as a Sorter in C&L and my coding skills show that I've served my time in OOC well, but my time in AI has truthfully been the shortest. However, I really want to change that. More than anything, I want to be able to help out the wiki that I call home, and I feel that I can do it best as admin in AI. I really feel like I have the time and energy to do what's expected of me in AI, especially with all the upcoming events happening. Many people have been wanting for the wiki to move things forward in regards to storylines and events, and I have all sorts of ideas to make the wiki popping again. It's a time for all hands to be on deck, and I'm super willing to take the wheel and go forward even though I might lack the experience of other users. I want to act as a crutch for my wanted department, and rather than put them down for lagging behind, I want to join in so they don't have to be alone.

  • Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: I've been an OOC rb for a few months now, and a few years before that I was in C&L until I was demoted due to a dip in activity. All together, I've been on the wiki six years come this June, and I've never stepped down from the team or left the wiki. My activity has fluctuated due to real-life things, but I have been an active user all six years. Since two admin positions are now open, I personally don't have a preference between the two departments, but I would be able to do either justice. I have the time and motivation for AI and experience on both sides of the sorting/locations process, and for either department if there are any extra bits I would need to be caught up on, I'm a quick learner so that would be no issue. I'm not an experienced coder - honestly, I have no wish to crank out amazing new templates that some of the great users on here do, but I know enough about coding to use existing templates and identify minor, common mistakes in code, which is great knowledge to use to help out new or inexperienced users.

    Ultimately my goal is to keep the wiki alive and, let's be honest, it's come close to dying several times. I am dedicated to this wiki, as shown by sticking around through six years of ups and downs, and I want to keep it active and running smoothly as best I can for as long as I can. This place has been my crutch for a lot of personal ups and downs and I feel the best way to pay some of that back is to take up a bit more responsibility for the upkeep and betterment of my internet home.

  • Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin:

Before I stepped down for a much needed mental health break, I was elected to bcrat of the OOC department on April 6th, 2018. Before that, I was an administrative user that was elected in December of 2017 and before that I was a rollback user elected in September of that same year. I have been a member of this community since August 2014 but my real activity only peaked in 2015, which means that I dedicated all but one year of my existence on this site to the staff department and my passion for the Harry Potter series.

I am a dedicated and extremely hardworking individual who has over the years, hopefully proven that I can raise to any challenge and help progress the wikia in a way that offers a pleasant roleplaying experience. While over the years there has been many pitfalls and trials I've had to endure, nothing is more rewarding than the growth that has come from my time here. I've been in a lot of departments now and so I know my strengths and weaknesses and before I hopped from Sorting (at the time) to OoC, I was a passionate member of the Activity Implenentation department. So for old time's sake, I am specifically running for the open position in AI. I've been consistently active over the years and have never had any official warnings or bans placed against me. I'm determined and I take my job very seriously which is why I believe I'm the ideal candidate for Activity Implementation, especially since its a very crucial department directly tying into user activity.

I have put on a lot of miniture expansions and events over the years, such as the Winter Solistice, Halloween and Christmas feasts at Hogwarts and a few student parties. I'm universally adaptable with my ability to code pages such as the OOC sitewide template (umr, exotic tracker and some registration pages), as well as made plenty of locations within the universal (both canon and noncanon); bittersweet emporium, thestral paddock, dobby's alcove, the spider's web, shutterbutton's photography, bowman e wright blacksmith, eternelle's elixir of refreshment, globus mundi travel agency, gringotts money exchange, the hopping pot, house elf placement agency, muesum of muggle curiosities, concordia and plunkett musical instruments, cogg and bell clockmakers, dr filibuster's fireworks, flimflam's laterns, jellied eel shop, stowe and packer's magical bags, tacconist, wickermore's, old forest/abandoned well, old forest/swimming hole, and the hogwarts express/luggage cart. I have also recently revamped about 65% of the Hogwarts pages with new color themes, images and updated descriptions. I also wrote a manual that can be found on here on how to properly archive roleplay pages, which I worked on with Ck.

Organization and roleplayer inclusion wise, I have also ran a London Vampire coven, been active in the Arcana Alliance expansion as well as ran a gang called the Serpents. In the near future, I will be introducing a new organization of all female knights that fight dark witches and magic. I have participated in a lot of the expansions that exist on the site as well as directly aided in the efforts many times before. At this very moment in time, I've been an extremely active member in the serial killer expansion and the progession of the IC storyline. I hope that if you vote me into Administration, I will tirelessly prove that I have what it takes to be here and I want to make every user's DARP experience a little bit easier. So let's create some memories, yeah?

  • Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: In truth, I know the odds are against me, considering all the times I've been on the team but have seen myself forced to step down in account of my struggling mental health. In total, it has been maybe 4 times. While I know this perhaps makes you uncomfortable selecting me to take on such responsibilities, I want to tell you I feel absolutely ready to shoulder this position and do everything it asks of me. I have no shortage of experience on the administration team, and if so I may say, have still tried to be as active as possible within the team without actually being on the team. What does this mean? Well, in spite of my status as regular user, I still remained as vocal as possible about topics such as more transparency between the team and the regular userbase, keeping all communication lines open, etc. I haven't let my lack of "rights" impede me from being as involved as possible with the community and the actual team. I hope this comes to show just how dedicated I am to DARP thriving. It doesn't matter the state I'm in, I've always taken my breaks if I have to, but I've come back time and time again to keep contributing. Because frankly, I really care about this place, and I'm not ready to let go. I want to do more, be able to help usher in a new era of activity.

    As I stated, I have no shortage of experience on the team. I was head of C&L and AI several times (as I transferred several times in order to accommodate the preferences of bureaucrats that stepped to the plate after me) and have an abundance of knowledge about the ins and outs of both departments. I'm also not a stranger to the OOC department, as little as I have ever clicked with them (it's not the people, it's my lack of knowledge about coding, whoops), and I'm also familiar with what makes the community run - with what makes them all essential, and dependent of one another. As C&L head, I redesigned the forums twice, and created a lot of locations, including but not limited to Lincliff City. (And as we know, the list of locations inside Lincliff is extensive). I made Coral Gates, too, and tried breathing some life into the adult world by creating companies like Lumos Broadcasting Center and Silencio Records Building. Meanwhile, I've also dealt with soft revamps of both Hogwarts and the Ministry of Magic. I've dealt with elections and have also come up with other small events, like the buddy system, which allowed people to experiment with exchange students from all around the world, as well as the March For Our Lives as a branch of the ongoing SK expansion.

    I've also had my hand in bigger expansions. I was the one who came up with the idea for the last Triwizard Tournament and its tasks, with help from my AI team at the time, and was the one to come up with the idea of the Serial Killer Expansion that is still ongoing. The next phase of this expansion, if it's what I believe it to be, is also one I came up with, so I have the experience. I know what I have to do, and I know how big that responsibility is. It doesn't matter if I'm chosen for C&L or AI (though the latter is my first choice), I'm ready to bring more of these events and redesigns. I'm here, I'm prepared, and I'm excited. I want this, and I want this bad. I've also dealt with more miscellaneous organizations, like The Black Parade and the iconic Pack from several years ago, and have ran Hogwarts Quidditch a good number of times as part of AI and otherwise. But more importantly, I think one of the most important qualities an administrator should have is being good at communicating. Which... while I know I'm not perfect at, I've been working with. I was one of the people who suggested bringing back HR, just as I was the one who suggested bringing back the monthly admin meetings during my tenure as bureaucrat. I want to make this work, I really do, and I just hope you have the same faith in me that I have. Thank you!
  • Any Other Things you want to add: I genuinely cannot be more excited for the future of DARP, seeing all the people that have stepped forward and dared to run/accept nominations. I know whoever gets the position will do an excellent job at it.

  • Reasons why you think you would be a good addition as an admin: In my previous tenure on admin team, all I worked on was AI. I worked my way up (fairly quickly) and headed the department for a long time before stepping down a few years ago (2017?). I implemented many major expansions including Quidditch World Cups, the Scrofungulus Epidemic, and a Triwizard Tournament, all seen through to completion, as well as several small week-long events. I'd like to think that I have a good handle on how to implement and follow through on plans for expansions and believe that my prior experience could be helpful for the current team.

    As a senior member of the wiki, I've seen it through many ups and downs, and as an older member of the wiki (not that I'm gray yet) I bring life experience and some degree of wisdom in helping users around with wiki problems as well as life problems. I'm always willing to be a listening ear, and I do my best to navigate everyone's issues in the fairest way possible.

    1, 2, 3 (for reference)
  • Any Other Things you want to add: I previously stayed away from admin team, because I felt it was rather toxic, and I was happier just to RP on my own with people I enjoyed, leaving the admin team to do what they wanted. I'm hoping that by rejoining, it shows the wiki that I'm invested in restoring DARP to it's old glory days where the admin team was trusted, and people RPed without fear of retribution and it was fun and a lively atmosphere.
