Shaun Dreclin was sysopped on the 6th of April 2013 by Joeytje50. He currently has 1,265 edits at the time of this nomination. His last main-space edit was on the 29th of January 2019.

What have you done as an admin up to this point?
When I originally got sysop in 2013 I did a bunch of work to get the wiki going. I set up the home page, did css work, fixed and updated templates, etc. After that initial period I settled into a mostly custodial role; updating and fixing articles as I saw places that needed improvement, keeping an eye out for vandalism, blocking and reverting troll edits, and protecting pages where neccesary. I've also contributed to many of the quick guides for quests, writing large portions of some of them myself.

I've also participated in discussions among the admins about wiki policies and projects, and despite some disagreements, I think I've offered valuable input to the team.

I obviously haven't used the sysop tools as much as some of the other admins, but I still think I've made good use of them. I would definitely disagree with me not showing a need for them, just because I've been a little less active recently than I have been in the past.

On interacting with the community in an administrative capacity, I never felt like that was something I should do. I'd much rather let the more prominent admins speak for themselves than try to guess what they'd want said.

Oppose - Shaun has not been very active since the fork and has not shown the need for sysop tools. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 06:19, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

Oppose - Doesn't edit or interact with the community outside of the cabals, which is the only place I ever see him. Don't see why he needs to remain an admin as he's shown no use for the tools. Talk-to Kelsey 10:08, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

Oppose - As per Spine and Kelsey. iN008talk 10:14, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

Support - as with my vote for Mage Hybrid, I still trust Shaun Dreclin with access to the sysop bit. The inactivity policy can remove him if he continues to not use the sysop tools. Adragon111 (talk) 17:00, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

Neutral/Comment — I agree with Ajr. I don't believe recent bare activity is reason enough to remove someone's sysop, until it gets to the point of removing rights temporarily where they can be reobtained upon request (i.e. inactivity policy), rather than going through another RFA seeing as they've already been an admin. That said, I don't personally know the candidate very well, hence my neutral vote. --laagone talk 19:05, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

Oppose - the last sentence said above by Shaun himself is a nice summary as to why he shouldn't remain administrator. No point keeping deadwood. 19:15, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

Support - Hasn't done anything un-admin-like as far as I'm aware of. --LiquidTalk 23:59, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Closed - Shaun Dreclin will have his sysop privileges revoked. He is, of course, welcome to continue editing and may resubmit another RfA in the future. --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 02:23, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
