Yep, the quick deletion category is what we call a 'backlog' right now. We either need a new admin or one to come here daily. BSOD (talk) 13:37, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)

can confirm. this is the worst bout of spambots i've ever seen for as long as i've been on this site. Senny is a Hippie 15:16, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)
Uncyclopedia is getting them too. However, they actually have active admins. BSOD (talk) 15:51, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)
Lucky for them... Senny is a Hippie 16:42, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)
And might I add, the "Requests for block" category is a backlog by now as well. Senny is a Hippie 16:49, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)
Yep, the first user created solely for spam has appeared on Uncyclopedia. So I expect the same here. BSOD (talk) 16:57, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)
I thought Athyria was going to make me an admin, but she seemed to never get around to it. I think I'll message her on Discord to remind her. CG098 (talk ☼‎ contribs) 16:59, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)
@BSOD - Speaking of spam-only accounts, there were a few sketchy usernames having to do with essay writing. Fortunately none of them have started editing here. Anyways, at least Uncyc wouldn't take kindly to IP spammers. @CG098 - Is Athyria a vampire here? I'm confused. Senny is a Hippie 17:01, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)
Athyria's a sysadmin, which I'm pretty sure would be able to promote admins. I had talked on Discord about it with her a little bit, but 2+2=5 had DM'd her about it before she asked me if I was willing to do it, so maybe she told 2+2=5 that she would get a Vampire to promote me, but I just sent another message to Athyria, so hopefully it will get sorted out eventually.

Alright we better not implode BSOD (talk) 17:26, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)

Oops. Also if you guys have anyone else you also think would make good admins, let us know, or stuff? Have a bit of a... agreement on it, and that should be enough. Best spread all the worlk around. -— Athyria 17:28, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)

I mean, every active user (except Kow Tow to Mao) is here BSOD (talk) 17:31, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)
And not to be an annoying arse or anything, but... (i just don't want to be a pain about it, but 2+2=5 did say it himself...) Senny is a Hippie 17:35, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)

So Athyria told me on Discord that "Seppy (who actually is a crat) never actually said yes himself" so if anyone objects to me being admin I won't fight demotion as long as the backlogs get cleared out or someone else gets promoted. CG098 (talk ☼‎ contribs) 17:38, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)

Alright, thnaks. Also, I'll clear out the Requests for block category for you so you don't have to. Senny is a Hippie 17:41, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for offering to do that, but I've got a good system going, so I clearing them on my own will work ok. There were still some pages that didn't get cleared out from the last time someone went through the category, so I can also delete those if the IP didn't do any discernible vandalism since then, but I am going to take a break to nuke some leftovers for lunch and also empty a dishwasher. And then I will return to decimate the rest of them. CG098 (talk ☼‎ contribs) 18:34, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)
Ok, gotcha. I have blanked some pages with the category already, though. Makes it easier in the long run. Senny is a Hippie 18:37, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)
Well, don't take over the site as a chicken foot peddling thing and we're probably good. And thank you all for actually, er, doing stuff. -— Athyria 17:53, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)

It really helped me to have a category of block requests, so thank you Senny and anyone else who contributed to it. CG098 (talk ☼‎ contribs) 20:47, 2 Ditzimber 2020 (UTC)
