::::It's really not necessary. Looking at {{Plainlinks|Special:Log|the protection log|3=type=protect}}, there are so few protections done, it wouldn't be worth having that many who could protect pages. <span style="white-space:nowrap; font-variant:small-caps; line-height:0;">&ndash; [[User:RobinHood70|'''Robin Hood''']]<span style="font-size:18pt;">&#x219D;</span>[[User_talk:RobinHood70|<span style="vertical-align:super">'''talk'''</span>]]</span> 03:39, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
:::::Done. As for the matter about extending protection privileges, I don't see that being necessary. Most protections are done mainly to adhere to the archive protection policy (which is hardly a task that must be performed right away without error), besides that, page protections are hardly needed. More importantly, patrollers already have section protection, which while not perfect, can basically solve most problems that come up. --[[User:Alpha Kenny Buddy|AKB]] <sup>[[User_talk:Alpha_Kenny_Buddy|Talk]] [[Special:Contributions/Alpha Kenny Buddy|Cont]] [[Special:Emailuser/Alpha Kenny Buddy|Mail]]</sup> 04:05, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
 
== rpeh's attacks on TESWiki, request for resignation of admin privilages. ==
 
If you look over [http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/Rpeh rpeh's edits] to TESWiki, you will see the deletion of content (including properly attributed content, allowable by CC-by-SA), and changing information on their pages[http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/index.php?title=The_Elder_Scrolls_Wiki:Policies_and_guidelines&diff=prev&oldid=386041], an agreement he apparently calls invalid since he wasn't in it. And then he was harassing and attacking them [http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk%3ANeguy71inok%2FAnotherReply here] and [http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:Timeoin/Archive_Rpeh here]. Rpeh then [https://twitter.com/#!/rpeh attacked Timeoin on Twitter]. All of these actions make the wiki look bad, and are definitely not becoming of an admin, so I would like to formally request that Rpeh has his admin privileges removed.

'''EDIT:''' I would like to request Krusty's removal as well. We are trying to act in the interest of this wiki moving forward, and Krusty, by removing our comments and calling TESWiki "annoying", is not helping out. He is acting like an unfit administrator, as well.

===Votes===
*'''Support''': as proposer.

*'''Comment''' I'm not really "from" here, so I wont support it formally. However, I do, in principle. The attacks he made on our wiki recently were pointless and unnecessary. Having someone who vandalises a different wiki just because its not his own isn't really someone that you should want as an administrator. (Just my two cents worth) [[User:Timeoin|Timeoin]] 05:51, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
*'''Oppose''': If this had come at any other time, my vote would likely have been support. However, we need all the editors we can get right now, and there is no doubt rpeh is an amazing editor. He should, however, step very carefully at this point. I don't approve of his actions, and therefore just because I don't think we need petty infighting, it doesn't mean I won't support this if the behavior continues. —[[User:SkoomaManiac|SkoomaManiac]] 06:02, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
:This isn't a proposal for a ban. This is to just remove his administrator ''privileges'' with a public admonishment, because he has tarnished UESP's name. [[User:Elliot|elliot]]&nbsp;<small>([[User_talk:Elliot|talk]])</small> 06:07, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
*'''Comment''': It's good that this comes to our attention, despite.. well the irrelevancy.. rpeh doesn't represent UESPWiki outside of UESPWiki, or am I wrong? That doesn't mean I'm "taking his side". Anyway, this seems more of a discussion for admins alone, I'm not going to get involved (I don't see myself as a real admin f.y.i.). And sure, Krusty shouldn't have removed the whole topic, although I can understand why he would do that. But if you haven't got any other reasons why Krusty should resign, well then I find your request to have him resign laughable, Krusty is one of the finest editors on the site. ~ [[User:Dwarfmp|Dwarfmp]] 06:44, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
*:'''Comment''':Krusty is a fine editor. But his actions, such as dictating what can or can't be put on the AN, his rude remarks about TESWiki, and an attack against me, suggest he is of the same mind with rpeh, who doesn't help us with the whole wiki argument. Maybe Krusty's resignation is extreme, but he isn't acting like a '''good''' administrator should, and he needs to at least straighten up. And Rpeh doesn't ''speak'' for UESP, but his actions do. Read some of his contributions in the links I gave you guys, he is clearly under the assumption that he is speaking for the wiki. After speaking with people on both sides, there is a clear mistrust of the UESP and its editors over this nonsense. I simply am trying to help the wiki. I mean nothing personal against him, or any other editors.

*'''Comment''': This is an idiotic discussion and a clear attempt to waste the time of editors. Stop stealing our content and there won't be a problem. I'm sick and tired of seeing images that I spend a good deal of time collecting used on a site that claims to be a competitor. Of course, it's no such thing and needs our excellent content to give it the faintest scintilla of quality, but that's not the point. Make your own content and stick your legalistic attitude where it belongs. You might think it's morally acceptable to use our content on a rival site but I sure as hell don't.

*'''Comment''': To you, its a waste of time. All I am doing is trying to help smooth out the damage you have done, which is hindering both wikis from operating. Yes, its in bad taste to use our images, but its still acceptable by our own copyright laws that Daveh has set in place. You don't run UESP, and it isn't your place to dictate what is and isn't acceptable or "pointless" to say. TESWiki is at fault for not attributing our images properly, and you're at fault for talking down to them and our own editors, and for vandalizing other sites to get your point across. Do some good for UESP, and step aside. I feel you are hindering our ability to make amends and get some work done.
