Today I'd like to nominate User:Aedan Cousland for adminship. He's been with the wiki since August the 2nd of this year and unlike the other members of the admin team has a strong presence in the forums. As they are an area which sometimes need some moderation I think he has demonstrated that he is well suited to fill that role. Another reason for his promotion is the imminent release in Dragon Age II. We'll undoubtedly have a spike in activity and will need extra hands to help deal with the new editors (good and bad).

Yes Like Matt said, I also thought he was one already. Just put the damn crown and shut up! SmileyRocketai (Ho there! Chase my tail!) 18:14, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

Yes He is a great leader and deserves this privlege


Yes Oh please, he already was an admin, now let's just make it official :D --Xiorath (talk) 23:11, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

Yes Basically was an admin, does a bunch for the wiki --AlbinoBlackLamb

Yes I agree completly, and from all the good stuff he does I think that should have been made a admin earlier.--Legolas777 (talk) 03:19, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

Yes He's got my support. Has done a lot for the wikia and is courteous whenever replying or explaining a point to another person. Should make for a pretty good Admin. --Madasamadthing (talk) 04:06, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

Hell yes, we need someone to help with all the new editing that will inevitably happeb on the release of DA2, and he has the same name as my newest Warden in Origins!! GO AIDAN!!! (talk) 10:41, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

Yes Me and my house stand beside you in the Assembly, Aedan.Croc484 (talk) 14:26, December 24, 2010 (UTC)Croc484 December 24, 2010

Yes I thought he was an admin already! He has my vote. --Alexiolio (talk) 15:24, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

Yes You mean he isn't one already!?! He deserves to be one so I say yes Vigilance (talk) 18:29, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

Yes Absolutely. I see him on the forums all the time offering friendly and helpful advice. I could not think of a better candidate for admin. Congrats Aedan. --Telietoons (talk) 04:55, December 25, 2010 (UTC)


I disagree completely. Kitoko Cousland (talk) 13:08, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

Comments and questions

Does Kitoko have a reason, or is s/he just trying to be funny/difficult? LVTDUDE (talk) 16:33, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

Kudos to mastermage for using the LBJ nickname. I feel so proud.  ;) LVTDUDE (talk) 16:38, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

I was wondering on that myself. She seems to be fairly new on the wikia so I'm not quite sure what I could have done to elicit that kind of response. Hopefully she's not just being contrary, or hopefully she is, I don't know which would be better there. I'm assuming Kitoko is a she since -ko is used for female names in Japanese (though it could be an African name). I also keep reading LBJ as Lyndon B Johnson, lol. It keeps throwing me off everytime I read it, just my American upbringing I guess. Icon wink  ✪Aedan Cousland | Talk | Contr 16:57, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

Heh. Me too (re: LBJ). I was also thinking the same thing about Kitoko...not that I've been here that long, myself...but for someone who hasn't participated much on the wiki, I can't imagine she (I'm guessing "she" as well) would have run into that many problems with you, Aedan. Unless it's that the Leo guy that messed with Loleil's page coming back under an assumed name. Heh. -- Techwench talk  19:54, December 23, 2010 (UTC)
Kitoko is an African name meaning "beautiful", but in this instance I think it means "contrary." Anyway, Aedan, I wouldn't sweat it at all. There's always someone that wants to rock the boat. As for LBJ, I thought the same thing the first time I saw it. LVTDUDE (talk) 00:01, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

Quick question. I saw a mention that the last admin was "kicked out" and just out of curiosity, why? King of the Dusters (talk) 15:16, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

Who do you mean? Max21? I thought he was out on a leave or something...IP no. (talk) 17:07, December 24, 2010 (UTC)
I apologize but I am slightly confused by the indentation above my post was that directed at me? King of the Dusters (talk) 17:11, December 24, 2010 (UTC)
If you're talking about my post, then yes, it was with reference to what you posted....IP no. (talk) 17:16, December 24, 2010 (UTC)
Oh well I don't know myself but iI don't think that was the max21 was the name in question. If you want to see the post I was referencing then scroll up and it's not far below my own vote King of the Dusters (talk) 18:11, December 24, 2010 (UTC)
The admin that was kicked out was Max21 aka "LimitlessBlackJack". If you want to take a look at the reasons why, Forum:Administrator Revocation: Max21 should make it all fairly clear.  ✪Aedan Cousland | Talk | Contr 22:36, December 24, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for satisfying my curiosity, you are truly worth of the position of admin. Many thanks King of the Dusters (talk) 22:40, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

Guys! Why's there always a party while I am gone?! Anyone save me a beer? -- tierrie talk contr 20:49, December 29, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, Oghren drank it all. He's outside looking for schleets, if you wanna give 'em hell. LVTDUDE (talk) 23:30, December 29, 2010 (UTC)
Just had to say, well played sir! (and keep him away from the roast nug.) King of the Dusters (talk) 00:22, December 30, 2010 (UTC)
