It is my humble pleasure to be nominathing this person, Rocket has been a Commons user since 12th May 2006 and an admin since 13th December 2007. In his time, he has made over 34,903 edits and completed over 15,248 admin actions. He has nominated three of our current admins (that includes me) and has mentored many other new and experienced users in various aspects of contributing. Since his successful RFA he's gone from strength to strength, not only using his admin tools flawlessly (to block vandals, delete nonsense and to close out numerous DR's) but he's also been active in many hard areas as an admin & as an user. He is knowledged with bots, and owns a bot that he has called "RocketBot". I believe this user will be valuable as a bureaucrat, he is calm and mellow all the time when you do talk with him, Rocket is also an OTRS member. Well I think I'm done :) --Kanonkas(talk) 16:13, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Well, I won't be able to fill Herby's shoes, but I'll try to do the best I can. Thank you for the nomination, Kanonkas. I humbly accept. Rocket000(talk) 16:30, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

  • Rocket000 is ridiculously active, ridiculously hard working, and ridiculously capable. I fully stand by what I said when I nominated him for adminship; he's exceeded my expectations greatly and has been awesome. He has great judgement, and is calm and civil in discussions—even when we disagree I am struck by the level headed way in which he always expresses himself. He is an asset to the project, and as I said when I told him that he's going to need to RfB himself soon (for reasons now evident), he'll be a darn good bureaucrat. I Symbol support vote.svg Support whole heartedly. —Giggy 00:20, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
  • I've found Rocket000 helpful, hardworking & dedicated to Commons. He is not afraid of expressing his own opinion however he is also happy to listen to other people's opinions - that is quite rare. There is little more that you could want in a 'crat. For me Commons get a better 'crat with Rocket than they did with me :). Symbol support vote.svg Support & strongly --Herby talk thyme 10:13, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I can't rely on a sysop who speedy delete category redirects et destroy the work of other contributors without any agreement of the community (Commons:Category redirects suck is not a rule). what a pity considering the rest of his work !--Bapti 17:37, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
Would you mind giving further information about this here? --Kanonkas(talk) 17:52, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
I gived some exemples here. If you have a look on his log, you can see that Rocket000 destroy the work of other contributors (without any explication to those contributors furthermore).--Bapti 19:29, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
This is more a difference of opinions. Some think they are useful, others see how they hurt the project. It depends on how you use Commons and the work you do here. Those that actually have to clean up the messes and do all the background work for things to continue to run smoothly for everyone else prefer to minimize the category "redirects". IMO, the support of the community is in favor of reducing these. Many admins do the same. Watch the CommonsDelinker page sometime, you'll see how many are deleted daily. Bapti is only one I've encounter that opposes the idea in general. 1 or 2 others have questioned the deletion of a specific redirect, but creating and deleting takes about the same amount time. I've noticed that the more you do here, the more likely you'll do something that someone objects to. You can't please all the people all the time, but that's ok if you can work together and comprise, which I'm always willing to do. Rocket000(talk) 21:12, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
