* '''Undecided''' - Though there's a long history with the site, it would be nice to see some edits along the lines of new pages and major updates, as well as an increase in number of edits; i.e. more consistent editing pattern. The latter is by no means a deal-breaker, but it would be nice to see more of the former to properly gauge editing ability.

* '''Against''' Even if the largest contribution wasn't merely copying from wowpedia and then getting snarky when those changes were reverted, there is no history of any length detailing contributions to the site.

* '''Undecided''' - Generally high quality edits and good edit summaries. Needs to make more new pages of all types (items, mobs, NPCs, guides, etc.). On the road to having the chops to be an admin, but not quite there yet. --{{qtt|[[Image:gengar orange 22x22.png]]|Beware the sneaky smile!}}&nbsp;[[User:Fandyllic|<span style="border-bottom:1px dotted; cursor:help;" title="What?">Fandyllic</span>]] <small>([[User talk:Fandyllic|talk]] &middot; [[Special:Contributions/Fandyllic|contr]])</small> 11 Feb 2011 2:08 PM Pacific

*'''Support''' Consistent editor, despite school schedule. Takes direction/suggestions well and remains calm when dealing with other editors. Has expanded types of pages edited after receiving feedback. Might need some direction with new admin tools, but no reservations... despite being Canadian. {{;)}} [[User:Raylan13|<b>Raylan13</b>]]<helper /> ([[User talk:Raylan13|<font size="1">talk</font>]]) 06:46, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

*'''Support''' Learns quickly, is careful, and asks good questions. He's Canadian!? (hmmm... my dad is Canadian and he seems okay most of the time...) I guess I can live with that. Barring some unforeseen opposition from other users, RyanPT is good admin material. --{{qtt|[[Image:gengar orange 22x22.png]]|Beware the sneaky smile!}}&nbsp;[[User:Fandyllic|<span style="border-bottom:1px dotted; cursor:help;" title="What?">Fandyllic</span>]] <small>([[User talk:Fandyllic|talk]] &middot; [[Special:Contributions/Fandyllic|contr]])</small> 31 Jan 2013 5:31 PM Pacific

* '''Support''' I don't see any issue with Alex, aside from documenting templates {{=P}}, an easy fix. Coding knowledge is easily head and shoulders over the rest and would be an incredible asset. The only thing I could conceivably think of would be having more content contributions. I get the feeling this will come in due time, so no worries from me there.

* '''Undecided''' Leaning toward '''support''', but waiting to see more understanding of making templates new user friendly. Many users have a hard time with wikicode in general, so templates need to be as easy to use as possible with as little HTML coding needed as possible. Will re-consider in a week or two. --{{qtt|[[File:gengar orange 22x22.png]]|Beware the sneaky smile!}}&nbsp;[[User:Fandyllic|<span style="border-bottom:1px dotted; cursor:help;" title="What?">Fandyllic</span>]] <small>([[User talk:Fandyllic|talk]] &middot; [[Special:Contributions/Fandyllic|contr]])</small> 6 Sep 2014 8:49 AM Pacific

*Is a Lore Expert, Patroller, and Moderator, and has used those responsibilities very well.
  +
*Takes initiative - especially during BlizzCon, was one of those who made the rest of our job easier
  +
*Takes direction well; so though he may not have a huge amount of experience with overall template use, this indicates he's got a history of paying attention and learning
  +
*Has always been level-headed and professional. [[User:Raylan13|<b>Raylan13</b>]]<helper /> ([[User talk:Raylan13|<font size="1">talk</font>]]) 23:41, December 3, 2013 (UTC)
  +
*Adding to the above, I do have a fairly good understanding of World of Warcraft lore, so this helps with the continuity of articles and ensuring they stay up to date. Obviously using templates would help, but as most of my edits concern lore articles this should be ok.

*'''Support''' Makes responsible edits and has wherewithal to develop new content and chase down correctness. Would be helpful to have more coverage on lore and missing pieces from expansions, and the expanded abilities would be very helpful and potentially easy many burdens.
