Doidimais Brasil[edit]

final (0,12,1) ending 21:51 14 February 2005 (UTC)

I nominate myself because I believe sysop abilities would enhance my range of skills in Wikipedia so as to keep improving it.

Original articles I made include Olavo Bilac, Diogo Mainardi, Olavo de Carvalho, Holy Avenger, Marista Hall, Chris Jones, Baldur´s Gate, and The Underdog Project. I also made Wikisource Português.

I´ve recently put fair use tags in all images I uploaded since I joined Wikipedia, a project of which I am enthusiast.

I´ve been here for quite some time, as well.Doidimais Brasil 00:10, Feb 8, 2005 (UTC)



  1. This user has done some great work on the articles he created (see above). I have two reasons for opposing: 1) Low edit count. I don't expect a user to have 4000 edits before RfA, but I would like to see more than his current 425. 2) Lack of experience dealing with controversial situations. I took a look at Talk:Olavo de Carvalho and wasn't very impressed with the comments in the "Author here" section. I'd prefer that WP admins didn't end comments with "Thanks, morons".

  2. Quick check of his talk comments: Most seem to be OK, but the Talk:Olavo de Carvalho mentioned by Carrp is not so hot. In any case, there are not enough edits -- Chris 73 Talk 00:51, Feb 8, 2005 (UTC)
  3. Great user, but he hasn't made enough edits. As much as I hate edit number standards, I have to oppose this user. However, if you come back later with more edits, I would definitely support you. Bart133 (t) 03:57, 8 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  4. I'm not a huge edit counter, but I expect more than 425 edits from a prospective admin. I will most likely support when the user has more experience, both in terms of edit number and interaction with the community. --Rje 04:29, Feb 8, 2005 (UTC)
  5. Not enought experience yet, sorry. --Slowking Man 08:00, Feb 8, 2005 (UTC)
  6. Yes, I can see you've been around for a while, but I don't see a consistent level of dedication to the project during that time (there are significant gaps in time between some of your contributions). I do not consider this to be characteristic of a good admin. -- Grunt 🇪🇺 18:10, 2005 Feb 8 (UTC)
  7. --Lst27 (talk) 22:51, 8 Feb 2005 (UTC) Sorry. I oppose, for several reasons:
    • Not enough experience. I expect people to have at least 1,200 edits before requesting adminship.
    • Not enough edit summaries.
    • When he nominated himself, he put the nomination in the "nominations" section (instead of the "self nominations" section), and I had to move it.
    • He linked this page wrong and forgot to change the username. '''[{{SERVER}}{{localurl:Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/UserName|action=edit}} Vote here] (0/6/0) ending 21:51 [[14 January]] [[2005]] (UTC)'''
  8. I don't like the "Thanks, morons" comment. I may support later but definitely not this time. JuntungWu 17:44, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  9. Not yet -- Francs2000 | Talk [[]] 02:23, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  10. Agree with above. Neutralitytalk 06:22, Feb 10, 2005 (UTC)
  11. Never. Many of your contributions are of very doubtful usefulness (I still remember "Quarto do Chefinho" from VfD) and you fail at the task of placing a simple image on an article (The Underdog Project). Strong opposition. --Sn0wflake 16:49, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  12. I base my decision on JuntungWu's comment about skills (below). --Ryan! | Talk 17:29, Feb 11, 2005 (UTC)


  1. Not enough experience. ugen64 06:20, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)


  • 425 edits Carrp | Talk 00:11, 8 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • I personally don't like the comment about "enhancing my skills". Sysops are supposed to have the skills required ready, not the other way round. JuntungWu 17:38, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • By the way I just noticed that the end date is wrong; it should be February not January. JuntungWu 17:41, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Questions for the candidate
A few generic questions to provide guidance for voters:

1. What sysop chores, if any, would you anticipate helping with? (Please read the page about administrators and the administrators' reading list.)
Helping new people in figuring out what they can do - and what´s to do - in Wikipedia; being able to edit polemical pages such as Olavo de Carvalho, which I created originally; quickly reverting pages where I see vandalism, such as World War II and Cold War.
2. Of your articles or contributions to Wikipedia, are there any about which you are particularly pleased, and why?
Yes. Olavo de Carvalho, because he himself and I changed e-mails about it. Holy Avenger, because I think it looks really nice. Olavo Bilac and The Underdog Project, because I really like their poems and songs,respectively.Wikisource Português, because I could put Bilac´s poems in it; and even a book of mine.
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 will deal with it in the future?
Finding out Olavo de Carvalho had been protected really pissed me off (check the page´s discussion). But it´s over now and I´ll always discuss a change I believe is controversial before actually editing an article.
