But in terms of the questions etc, he is taking it seriously, and so is everyone else. Only Bishonen has gotten away with literally treating this as a joke. As is her Royal Prerogative. She didn't piss all over the foundational beliefs of Jimmy Wales for nothing. She has to get her just rewards for staging that coup, and this is one of them. Play Time.Disclosure: this was to fulfil a promise I made to Redrose64 at the Oxford wiki-meetup in January. My argument was that adminship shouldn't be treated as a big deal, and that the key issue was whether the community trusts a user or not. So I agreed to test that premise on April Fool's Day, on the grounds that if it completely bombed I could always tell myself it was "just a joke". Now that the cat's out of the bag, I won't be able to salve my battered feelings when I get 50 opposes on the grounds of "no need for the tools". --RexxS (talk) 17:33, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
There is literally nothing this bitch cannot do. Trump shooting someone in broad daylight is small potatoes to this arrogant untouchable. It isn't that long ago someone like RexxS would indeed have crashed and burned. But such is the state of the Wikipedia community, so rotten to its core, that this last year it has been more normal to see candidates with severe personality defects and other massively disqualifying traits being waved through, than qualified candidates. No doubt she is well aware of the Stench of Denmark, and so she anointed her sweet prince.
It says a lot as how subservient RexxS is to his Mistress that he has clearly not thought about how terrible it would be for him if he does pass, and this joke of a nomination statements stands for all time as a record of his credentials that were presented to the community. I cannot be the only person who, on a first encounter with an unknown Admin, reads their RfA. Can't be too careful, Ritchie spawned quite a few baby-morons, and their genetic dispositions aren't immediately obvious. If she has ever even bothered to nominate anyone else, wise editors would always want to now if they were dealing with a Hand of the Queen. Imagine how little self respect he must have to have not even floated the suggestion she not treat this as a joke.
With no hint of irony, literally none, RexxS is throwing his hat in the ring on the basis Adminship is no big deal. As many will have realised, when you have the protection of the Queen of Wikipedia, being an ordinary editor really is no big deal. You can disregard warnings, ignore policy, pretty much do what you want, as long of course, as you're not defying the Crown. For everyone else, suffering at the hands of psycopaths like Bishonen, they have collated a veritable book of reasons why Wikipedia should no longer hand out Adminship like candy. They're still failing to spot the predators and are all too willing to idolize scum, but the point is they are at least trying to be selective, fearing yet more beatings.
This is what really makes it sound like an April Fool.....
Anyone who thinks someone who has been a regular editor on Wikipedia for a decade without ever accepting the basic conduct requirements (which, because of people like Bishonen toxifying the whole place at will, are mere theoreticals at this stage, but still), really is a fool, and absolutely deserves in future to be subjected to an Admin sucker punch of RexxS blocking and Bishonen removing talk page protection and everyone else with the authority to stop them standing around with their thumbs up their asses because, what, you're gonna take The Queen to AN/I? As if. Not for nothing is that so often literally her idea of accountability, in practice. Easy to do, when everyone else literally has their thumbs up their asses, all desperately looking the other way.I know that I don't suffer fools gladly and I realise I can be acerbic at times. Looking forward, I accept that administrators have to be held to higher standards of behaviour, so I would be obliged to more passive in my responses if acting in any admin capacity. --RexxS (talk) 16:54, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
Of course, things may not be all that they seem, and perhaps neither RexxS or his Master are playing around as much as it would seem here....
There is of course one very highly active Administrator at AE, and despite all her power, eliminating him has so far eluded Bishonen. Partly because she's never been one to get her hands dirty in the really big battles, and this guy is not going anywhere unless someone of an equal rank draws their sword and invites him to a duel. Part of the benefits of being Queen, is you have plenty of loyal footsoldiers to stab your enemies in the back, front, sides and asshole, while they continue with the misconception their dispute was with her. I can see RexxS being dumb enough to let her bestow Adminship on him, as long as he does her this one small favour at AE.....just a tiny little thing.I'd like to help at Arbitration Enforcement, as I feel that area really needs more active admins.
A big part of that job will be the ability to claim no prior disputes exist between RexxS and the person Bishonen wants removed, and on a quick check, that seems to be the case. And as we all know, for the purposes of Wikipedia governance and assessing neutrality and bias of Administrators, nobody takes a blind bit of notice when there is copious amounts of evidence of a close working relationship, even if we generously assume all RexxS and Bishonen are, is internet friends. One would surmise it is a bit more than that, and you just know which one wears the strap-on and which one has the mouth gag.
I could probably enjoy watching these people be all they can be, if I didn't know a big part of what they get out of it, is the misery of others. Proper scum, make no mistake. The only games these people enjoy, are the ones where not everyone realises they are a player.
