Gigi

Statement

I'm Gigi. I've been editing the wiki since September 2019, but only really became active in February 2020. I became a patroller in late March 2020, and was promoted to administrator in late August 2020. I edit this wiki because I believe the Kirby series deserves a high quality independent wiki to help its players, and if I want to I should help with it.

I feel honored to be nominated for the Editor-in-Chief role by so many people, and I am gladly willing to take the role and all its responsibilities. I believe I would be a good fit for the EiC role due to my never-ending passion for Kirby (I've been a fan of the series since early 2009) and my experience as a leader both in real life and in other communities in the internet. My intentions are to listen to the WiKirby community and help guide it to the best direction, rather than simply enforcing my personal beliefs: I am very open to dialogue. I am also constantly active both in the wiki itself and its Discord server, and I don't see that changing anytime soon, so I should be available to give input and join in discussions.

I also want to be transparent that I also fully support StrawberryChan, and I am confident the community will make the right decision, no matter which of us ends up being chosen.

Support

  1. LeoUnlimited (talk) I know how organized, thorough, and credible Gigi is when it comes to research, and for a position over a research-based community, I think she's a great fit! 02:45, 17 April 2021 (UTC)
  2. Hexelectron (talk) 14:12, 17 April 2021 (UTC) It was hard for me to pick between Gigi & Strawberry because of how both of them have credible research and are always diving into more obscure Kirby media and lost content, and they were also very kind people who helped guide WiKirby in the right direction. But in the end, I've decided finally to support Gigi because not only she's great help to the Kirby fandom in terms of information, but is also a good, credible, and organized researcher on Kirby stuff, as Leo mentioned before. Although I've chosen to support Gigi, I will still be rooting for both of the candidates, as they are still in very good light. I wish you both a good sport, after all.
    # ---PinkYoshiFan 13:38, 18 April 2021 (UTC) Both candidates are equally great and well-suited for the task, so I also just flipped a (digital) coin.
  3. Scrooge200 (talk) 19:08, 19 April 2021 (UTC) You've done a great job. I particularly appreciate your work on the Daroach's Airship page; you're the first person on the Internet to make a complete and organized collection of these quotes.
  4. --kirb (talk · edits) 21:07, 19 April 2021 (UTC) Both candidates are very suitable and able for the job, but I had to pick one. :)
  5. YFJ (talk · edits) 17:04, 20 April 2021 (UTC) Believe me, this was not an easy choice. Both Gigi and Erika are hardworking editors that would be very capable in the position. But ultimately, Gigi got my vote for several reasons: her recent edit count could make anyone jealous, and as has been said above, that Daroach's Airship page is no small feat! Her leadership experience on r/kirby will no doubt be a big help here. Regardless of who is given the role, I am honored to have served the wiki thus far and place my full confidence in both candidates.
  6. MetaDragon (talk) 06:08, 22 April 2021 (UTC) While I think Erika would do well as Editor-in-Chief, I've learned from a bit of research that Gigi has more interest and enthusiasm in accepting the position. Otherwise, I've not much else to say here. The reasons given above by other supporters are also why I believe Gigi will be a fine successor to YoshiFlutterJump. Cheers to both nominations regardless, who both are worthy of the position, and YoshiFlutterJump, who served his position well.
  7. Superbound (talk) 12:05, 22 April 2021 (UTC) Gigi is a dedicated community member, who already has an experience moderating other, larger Kirby cults communities. She works excellently with others, and always open to discussion. All of this makes me sure she would be great leader of WiKirby.
  8. - GameDoor64 (talk) (edits) 17:29, 22 April 2021 (UTC) Gigi has been nonstop editing the wiki and my heart says Gigi is the best choice.
  9. Kawasaki'sBiggestFan (talk) 23:55, 22 April 2021 (UTC) This is tough. I choose both of them.
  10. ---PinkYoshiFan 00:02, 23 April 2021 (UTC) Wasn't aware you could vote for multiple people earlier, so doing that instead of relying on a coin flip since both candidates would do great in the position.
  11. --pandakekok9 (poyo) 05:11, 23 April 2021 (UTC) This is tough, but have to vote for one of them. I'm more convinced by Gigi's consistent activity on-wiki, as well as her research work. And the fact that she's not from the U.S. (not that I don't like Americans) when the previous two are in the same country also helps give WiKirby a more international look rather than being US-centric. Now don't get me wrong, Erika would be a good EiC as well, and I'd probably vote for her in the next election. :) But I think Gigi is the better choice here.
  12. --Obsessive Mario Fan 05:28, 23 April 2021 (UTC) Both candidates seem like they would be great EiCs. However, Gigi has been quite active, and she seems very passionate about building up the wiki more than it has already been built up. Plus, I think her leadership skills from the past will apply here.

StrawberryChan

Statement

Howdy! I'm Erika. I go by StrawberryChan on the wiki, and I've been an active editor since around December of 2018. I was promoted to a patroller in January 2020, then an administrator in May of 2020, after roughly a year and a half of editing. Most of my edits are to clean up and expand upon existing information, as well as add Japanese translations and create new pages; my focus is primarily on soundtracks. For these past two years, I feel like I've been accepted into a wonderful community, I've built incredible relationships, and I've generally become a better person.

I'm honored to be nominated for Editor-in-Chief. The voters' trust in me fills me with overwhelming joy, and I want to do my best to meet their expectations. In addition to maintaining an active role in the wiki's community, I believe that my life-long love for the Kirby series, my meticulousness and attention to detail, and my flexibility and willingness to listen to others are aspects that make me suitable for such an important role. I want to make WiKirby the best community it can be, not just for facts and information, but for its users as well. I want WiKirby to be a welcoming place for all, one of tolerance and communication, where nobody feels excluded or isolated. This may seem like an odd goal, but I believe that the community is the backbone for the wiki, and should be a healthy place for its users; after all, you can't have good articles without the writers behind them.

Finally, I want to say that I fully endorse Gigi's nomination, too. She's a close friend of mine, and I absolutely trust in her statement that she will lead the wiki in a fair and unbiased manner. With that, I hope you all have a wonderful night!

Support

  1. Alex95 (Talk) - I think both candidates would do great in the position, and I could not choose between the two of them so I flipped a coin and this is who I landed on :P
  2. Viperision (Talk) It's a tough decision, but my vote falls here. Both admins contribute a lot the the wiki and show great qualities, though this position encompasses interaction with the community more than anything.
  3. ----Junethebest (Talk) It was a very tough decision, but well, I vote for her. (Strawberrychan)
  4. Superbound (talk) 12:05, 22 April 2021 (UTC) I can say that Erika is innovative and can lead the community for sure. She often participates in discussions on Discord and is very helpful for new users, making me sure should she fits the Editor-in-Chief position.
  5. Kawasaki'sBiggestFan (talk) 23:54, 22 April 2021 (UTC) This is tough. I vote for both of them.
  6. ---PinkYoshiFan 00:02, 23 April 2021 (UTC) Wasn't aware you could vote for multiple people earlier, so doing that instead of relying on a coin flip since both candidates would do great in the position.
  7. Infinite Possibilities (Talk) 22:43, 23 April 2021 (UCT) I'm 100% positive that both candidates would do a great job as the others have said as well but a vote's a vote.
