If you are planning to vote, please read the following entries and small "speeches" written by the candidates after the bolded black line. After you read the entires, please read the rules and qualifications for voting that follows; the rules and qualifications have been changed from the original voting thread that announced the Admin Election, so it is vital that you do so in order to vote.
CANDIDATE 1: NoyathePenguin - Joined: April 20, 2015 Edits as of Candidate Submission date: 197
“Hello guys, I'm NoyaThePenguin and I'm looking to become one of the admins. For those who don't know me, I'll start with some basics. I've recently got into the Haikyuu fandom and even though I'm new, I think that my efforts can really help out the fandom. Recently, I gave the entire a whole makeover with the help of Jin and Chan. We edited the main pages, categorized and I edited the main page along with some other templates. I believe that I can push this wiki to its full potential and make it as big as it should be. Please, give me a chance and allow me to become one of your admins. Thank you for reading and I hope you give me a chance! ”
CANDIDATE 2: Fattieschan - Joined: March 27, 2015 Edits as of Candidate Submission date: 497
"In episode 21 of Haikyuu!!, Koshi Sugawara said the following quote:
'The points we get when I'm on the court, and the points we get when you're [Tobio] on the court -all together, they're points for Karasuno.'
I am no Sugawara, but I think this quote greatly applied to the Haikyuu!! Wiki. It is not a secret that I love the Haikyuu!! Wiki and that I want to improve it. The Wiki has a lot of potential to grow, but that growth is being stultified by vandalism, errors, and lack of proper representation of the community. I want to change that because a community is important; it's like a team. Whether you have five edits or 700 edits, it doesn't matter. Your edits are still important to the Wiki, and you deserve to have a voice, and if you vote for me, I will further enforce your voices and do my best to take actions that will represent your voices, just like a Team Captain.
So, let me end this short little speech by rephrasing the quotes that we began with:
The edits I make when I'm on the Wiki, and the edits we get when you're on the Wiki-all together, they're edits for Wiki."

This was hard to decide but my vote goes to Fattieschan for bureaucrat and NoyathePenguin for admin.
Fattieschan is on almost everyday and is always actively making new pages, adding content to the wikia about the series (the "Let's haikyuu" page and other stuff), and fixing troll edits. She also announces the wikia news all the time, makes polls, and talks to other users all the time. She can basically run the wikia by herself. I think she would be a great bureaucrat.
NoyathePenguin does a lot of work as well but most of her contributions so far has been mainly coding/technological work and not stuff related to the series. She hasn't really added much information to the character/episode/chapter/series related pages. I greatly respect her work, but I think she would be better as an admin who's in charge of coding/layout work. That aside, she doesn't go on a lot. I don't know if she has work or school or anything, but if she's that busy then maybe being an bureaucrat would be too much?
Imma vote NoyaThePenguin as the admin and Fattieschan as the bureaucrat.
Although Noya is new to the fandom, she's already shown work that's greatly improved the Haikyuu wikia community. I can really tell that she definitely has ideas that are going to help, and she definitely has the mentality to spend countless hours to brainstorm ideas and execute them until they are perfect. I believe the admin position should go to NoyaThePenguin because I feel like she does more physical stuff, like the layout and others. The admin position will be able to allow the user to access certain abilities that normal users aren't allowed to use.
However, the reason I chose Fattieschan as the bureaucrat is because I believe this person is really friendly to the community and is on all the time to answer questions, polls, things like that. This person has shown great social skills and she welcomes anyone, no matter what status. I think she can keep the wikia running stablely for a long time, but not organized or clean. The layouts and coding stuff to keep the wikia organized can be done by a regular admin, which is where NoyathePenguin comes in.
I vote myself as admin, because I don't know much about the Haikyuu series. I've only began to watch it a couple of weeks ago, because Healnarutoule urged me to. I've admined and b-crated many wikis before, but since I do lack information about Haikyuu, I humbly only vote myself to be admin. Since school is important to me, I won't really have time to watch the episodes and what not. Maybe during the summer I will watch the rest of the season, but for now, I'm focused on layouts and things like that.
I vote Fattie for b-crat, because quite frankly, she's amazing :)
