He's also an image creator and he has been ever since adding "First-Person View" images for a variety of weapons, such as Festivized and Australium weapons. He's also pretty nice and it's always willing to learn when he asks something for me.

Revision as of 20:31, 13 September 2019

All wiki users are free to nominate other wiki editors to receive the Wiki Cap, which they may do by adding names and reasons to the Active Nominations table. Please only nominate candidates that you feel fulfill the eligibility factors, noted here. Users cannot nominate themselves. Check the Archives to see if someone has been nominated before.

New nominations should be added to the table in the following format:

 |-
 | style="background-color:#ffbd7e;" | [[User:TheUserNameHere|TheUserNameHere]]
 | [[User:YourUsernameHere|YourUsernameHere]]
 | Today's date in numeric form (eg. January 2nd, 20XX would be 20XX-01-02)
 | Reason for nomination
 | N/A
 |-

If you are adding information (your name/nomination reason) for someone already listed in the table, put

<br/>

at the end of the line, followed by your information. When adding a reason for nomination, start the line with

{{tooltip|●|YourUsernameHere's reason}}

Do not simply add your name under the Backers field without adding a reason why you feel this user deserves a Wiki Cap.


When a user has been discussed by the staff, they will be moved down to the Recent Reviews table. Please add new nominees starting at the bottom of the New Nominations table; for re-nominating a user who has been nominated before, please see the Recent Reviews section for more information. Remember, this is a list of users who will be discussed by staff for consideration; being nominated does not guarantee that a user will get a Wiki Cap.

Nominee Vote Queue

How it's decided: When user gets 5 or more 'yes' votes, if there are more 'yes' votes than 'no' votes, put cap. If user gets 5 or more 'no' votes at any time, reject.

Staff: Do not increment the numbers here until you have done
a proper logged vote in the discussion channel, even if you are the nomination author.
If you see an error in the table, call attention to it in the staff channel and discuss it before fixing.

Nominee Yes No Abstain
GrampaSwood 2 2 1
BrazilianNut 5 0 0
Thedop 5 0 0
Dereko 0 0 3

Active nominations

To read about the the eligibility factors used to review editors, please read the Wiki Cap page.

Remember: The Wiki Cap is not a right. It is a privilege and reward for useful contributions. Before adding any name to this list, please consider the eligibility factors.

Remember that edit count is not relevant to eligibility or an indicator of usefulness. It is in fact wholly redundant. Please do not nominate someone based on this number or use it as a reason for eligibility.

When writing feedback in the Feedback column please give examples with substance. Not "he works hard" or "he's trying really hard". An example of a good reason would be: "The quality of his set of weapon demonstration videos for X, Y, and Z far exceeds anything else I've seen."

2019-08-27 Pictogram plus.png  I kept an eye on this person for a while. He got wide range of contribution. Images, demonstrations, grammar fix, translation, you name it. Even through he has made minor mistakes here and there (We all do), but I think we cannot get someone who can contribute in a wide range like this nowadays. It's time for him to get what he deserved.


Pictogram plus.png  From monitoring recent changes to uploading needed images and even videos. GrampaSwood is contributing to the Wiki with his translations for /nl users, adding new and updating old informations for /en pages but also other languages. I believe his work deserves to be awarded.
Pictogram plus.png  When i first met him on IRC, I thought Swood was a moderator (no joking). GrampaSwood is one of most active wiki users, that helped me many times. Because of him I know how to properly use this page. Swood is also probably always monitoring recent changes and I know that for sure, because he is the person that undod my edits the most (sometimes I make stupid mistakes 😔). He also is currently the most (and only probably) valuable person that keeps /nl alive. Heck, he even makes stuff for english wiki too (some demonstrations, voice line page and ofc minor changes). Basically Swood is very helpfull guy that patrols wiki, keeps /nl alive, checks if bugs are possible to do and makes and fixes new pages on english wiki. I'm suprised that he hasnt been nominated before.
Pictogram plus.png  Swood's work is well, various. That is he takes up a lot of different tasks, some of which are - Translations, demonstrations (although that's a fairly new addition, and he just got his first one approved), small corrections, new addition to the pages or adding missing images. While I cannot speak for quality of translations (although he is in STS, which does make me trust in his ability to translate), I can speak for quality of his smaller additions or corrections as well as the image work he has done up to this point. He's been here since around a year or so with a history of more or less consistent editing, which is also a positive thing to note.
Pictogram plus.png  Very good editor that focuses on small edits, such as grammar, punctuation, consistency, add/removing "To-Dos" and others (not only for English pages, but for a variety of different languages). Also does translation to /nl pages. He's always checking the Recent Changes page, and whenever there is something new added, he makes sure to correct a few words or two, or in case of "invalid" contributions, he makes sure to revert those and explain to the user who added those on their talkpages. He's also an image creator and he has been ever since adding "First-Person View" images for a variety of weapons, such as Festivized and Australium weapons. He's also pretty nice and it's always willing to learn when he asks something for me.

2019-08-27 Pictogram plus.png  The Brazilian Portuguese side of the wiki has a high percentage of translation progress, and in recent times keeping this up has been in no small part due to BrazilianNut's efforts. Both translating pages for new additions or helping with the sempiternal task of updating the many old articles, they are a great assistance, with consistent translation and pretty impeccable grammar that I would say could be as good as STS level lately. Also taking into account that I've seen them in the wiki for a while (starting in early 2017), I strongly believe they should be our next Brazilian recipient of a cap.


Pictogram plus.png  Very good /pt-br lad, considering that I actually know the language this time, I can analyze it more, and BrazilianNut, in a Nutshell, does great translations for pages, making new translations for new cosmetics (all for Summer Pack 2019 and Scream Fortress 2018), making sure to keep pages updated (updating outdated pages, to reflect with changes on the English page), and he also does general changes to English pages (such as disambiguation/redirect pages). Overall, I think he should and is ready to receive his cap, his contributors has been as good as previous /pt-br editors from the past.
Pictogram plus.png  I won't be able to comment much here since their contributions are almost exclusively translations for a language that I don't speak, but as Gabrielwoj already said, they have done tons of consistent translations at large quantities. Haven't seen him around on IRC and I only patrol Recent Changes for English, Finnish, and Norwegian, so they are kind of like a ghost to me - a silent little ghost that flies around the Wiki, updating and adding translations all around the Brazilian Portugese parts :D

2019-08-27 Pictogram plus.png  Thedop may not be active on the wiki itself, but he has made a total of 62 demonstrations now and is still making more. He has made around 10 or so thumbnails for demonstrations as well as a few translations for things. He has helped me personally with demonstrations, and without him I wouldn't have been able to do it. On top of this, he also runs the official channel for the wiki. He is not seen on the IRC, so his work goes mostly unseen by the average user. I believe he deserves the cap for these reasons.


Pictogram plus.png  Thedop has created lots of demonstration. Like really big ammount of them. All high quality. Despite all of this user isnt active on IRC so his work is most unseen. Even I didnt knew about him until someone (cough GrampaSwood) told me about him. I think he deserves cap for such an effort.
Pictogram plus.png  Thedop's main specialty or focus of his work is mainly images and demonstration videos. Those things not only require an extra effort, but also have to be of good quality, which they are and are daily added/uploaded onto TF2Wiki or its youtube channel. Other than that he has some work done in terms of translatins - mainly item pages and such, on which I cannot comment but may be good to note.

2019-08-27 Pictogram plus.png  From time to time, I keep watching the Recent Changes, and I'd always see this guy contributing a lot. He has been updating multiple pages from multiple languages to support the "View listings on the Steam Community Market" button, he also updates /zh-hans that are outdated, and has been seen also translating complete pages for /zh-hans, namely the new 2019 cosmetics. He's also been helping new Chinese translators too. I think he is ready to receive his cap, due to how much he has been working, and how consistently his work has been.


Pictogram plus.png  Dereko has been contributing greatly to the Chinese part of the Wiki. They have translated a lot of pages to /zh-hans, and have kept many old translations up to date, with some of their biggest translations being 军团要塞2/Team Fortress 2 and 火焰兵幻境. They have also been doing maintenance edits (such as marking items as being marketable) across all languages, and have helped out many other Chinese translators on the Wiki. Over 250 Chinese pages are being kept up to date by them (check the userpage for a list). They also participate on discussions in talkpages and on the IRC channel.
Pictogram minus.png  Even though this person clogged recent changes All I saw in his/her contribution log recently are tiny changes (like added marketable in the infobox). I still not see any solid works recently. However, I'll support this person if there's more of solid works than tiny ones. But for now, I think it's too early.

Users who have received a "No" verdict still have a chance of getting a Wiki Cap in the future, the verdict is not permanent. The staff will continue to watch users' progress and re-evaluate them at a later time. They can also be re-nominated for a Wiki Cap, however please refrain from re-nominating a user immediately after they have been declined; try to wait at least a month before re-nominating a user, in order to give the staff time to evaluate that user's progress. There is no hard-and-fast limit on when a user can be re-nominated, however remember that if a candidate has not improved significantly since the previous nomination, the results of the review may not change. Users who have been declined are encouraged to check the logs for their evaluations, to see what they can do to improve their submissions and interactions with the wiki and its users.

When re-nominating users who have been declined in the past, add them starting at the bottom of the Re-Nominations table in the following format:

● Has done a great deal for the french translation on the wiki, continuously updating pages he translates and being really reactive when new content is added, to have localized pages ready as soon as possible.
He's also present on the IRC, watching the RC feed, and edits a little of english while sometimes doing some maintenance work.
He's not far from reaching 2000 edits and did more than 600 since his last review.
● Translates, and translates better than I would. Is on IRC as well, though using an unrelated nickname, so nobody knows it. Has stayed active.
● Has been nominated once before.
Keisari Lexar
Fyahweather
2011-10-01 2011-10-09 ● Keisari, from what I can tell this user is the only finnish translator that is doing any work at all (again purely from what ive seen). Keisari shows great determination in getting articles translated and keeping templates up to date. Keisari being a very active wiki editor has made many valuable contributions over the wiki especially during the uber update phase. Keisari also happens to be on the irc pretty much as much as me (in other words a damned lot). Keisari is always community minded and is very easy to approach, not only this but keisari will also show strong desire to interact with others wherever possible making this user a very strong user both community wise and wiki editing wise. For these reasons, I believe keisari deserves the cap for both community participation and a lot of quality translations.
● Keisari has been the most contributive Finnish translator and the only admin who does not have a wiki cap. He's helped us in the UGC Highlander Tournament recently, and shows a keen desire to help others on the IRC and outside of the wiki. He's a person who genuinely likes working with editors, whether ingame, on the IRC, or in the Wiki.

2011-11-25 2011-12-04 Always one of the first to translate missing/new articles into german. Made an excellent job on translating tons of maps into german (and we all know how painful translating maps is). Thanks to him we have 100% of the official maps translated. Is familiar with the "complicated" stuff like the dictionary template etc. Arranges and works cooperative with the other german contributors. Overall, made over 900 edits with a high quality and above average new pages.

He is a very very very very good contributor to the german wiki.He helps new people (like me), to learn the important tricks and other stuff from the wiki, and has overall a good view of important and unimportant articles which needs to be translated. I'm ashamed to say that but he is most of the times the first guy who translates for the german wiki, and has a good way of translating the english articles. My last reason is a mere statemet: We are a few but we are good, i don't want to say that we have only 10 active translator, but we have only, picard, sackzement, t-wayne, and thedoctor. That's not a reason but a consideration to you guys about what he does and all of us, we have a lot of viewer but not so much translator. He would have voted for Obama: Change!!! Hope!!
I believe T-Wayne deserves the cap due to his many contributions to the slowly progressing but highly demanded german section of the wiki. T-Wayne shows much interest and much determination to both finish and better the german wiki, being one of the only 3 editors in the language he has done many great jobs and gotten many pages for the wiki done. T-Wayne also displays his desire to mix with the community by getting involved in chats and being a regular on the irc. Overall T-Wayne has always displayed a positive attitude and has always jumped to any job he is offered.
Hard worker, participates greatly in community (IRC, Highlander, etc.) and being badass.
I often see him in IRC.

2011-11-26 2011-12-04 There is a lot I can say about Evaldas. So I'll start from the beginning. Evaldas is an excellent contributor this grand base of TF2-based knowledge. Although he doesn't contribute in the most traditional way, one doesn't have to go far to see what he has done for this Wiki, visually speaking. While he has come under some controversy regarding uploading images that didn't need replacing, one cannot say that his quality of work isn't far better than most and doesn't deserve to be showcased on all pages, thus, in my opinion, making the previous point moot. Secondly, Evaldas is undeniably a wonderful person. He is constantly smiling, at least virtually, and is always a pleasure to speak to. He is constantly seen on the IRC and is a calm approachable person; should one have any questions regarding his area of professions (that being HLMV, Source SDK and Images). Truly, if one is deserving of a Wiki Cap it is unequivocally Evaldas himself, not only for his appetence and strong work ethic toward improving the Wiki, in his own ways, but also for being the kind and generous person we all know and love.

Seconding that I don't think my previous complaint about image replacement should be in any way held against Evaldas. Like I said before, he makes great images for the wiki at a consistently high standard and is also a very nice person, that's what he should be judged on.
Same as before. My reason can be found in the archive of past nominations (below).
Just take a look at Evaldas's contributions. He's uploaded a huge amount of really great images for the Wiki, and spent a lot of time adding them to their respective pages. It takes a certain type of person to have not just the patience, but also the artistic talent to take pictures like this, this and this. Evaldas is also a genuinely great character, and has helped several users - including me - with many aspects of imaging, from getting Source SDK installed, to fixing minor glitches with imaging software. He's helpful, friendly, and a high quality contributor. What more can you ask for?
Evaldas is not your average image creator. He's also one of the kindest editors I've met, always cheerful and willing to oblige. He participates heavily on the IRC, giving everyone compliments and pats on the back. His images are very high quality at a very consistent level. I find that Evaldas' work towards the Wiki has been very beneficial and nominate him to the pinnacle of wikidom.
He does some of the best images I've seen, he's always working hard to improve the existing wiki content, and is also a really nice guy, always worrying about others and trying to help and cheer them up. He even helped me learn how wiki code works when I was clueless. He has shown great commitment for a long time.
Very kind fellow, usually see them in Source SDK making new and improved images for the wiki. No jaggies on this front! Re-Nomination.
A number of veterans on this wiki have trouble being friendly and approachable, but that's something you know that you never have to worry about with Evaldas. Exceptionally kind, exceptionally talented, and just so darn cute to boot.
Evaldas has been doing some quality work (and particulary with that SDK tool). While he's also very kind, he's also very present on the IRC channel and deserves to be rewarded.

2011-11-26 2011-12-04 Contributed a huge amount of high quality images to the wiki. Showed a strong desire to improve the wiki, creating his own guide on how to work with models in HLMV. Always pleasant to work with and helpful whenever needed.
Helps significantly with our Wiki's photos, including additions and improvements. Displays a kind and helpful demeanor to everyone, and frequently chats in the IRC.

Same as before. My reason can be found in the archive of past nominations (below).
Lots of good image uploads, and weapon demonstrations are always highly sought after here. His list of wikichievments sort of speaks for itself, in my opinion.
Doesn't neglect older, less looked at hats such as older hats that need galleries and new images. He's a great asset to the Wiki.
Magoolachub's got this vibe to him that I can only describe as a valor to improve the wiki. Doesn't exactly makes sense, but it feels right. Videos, photos, damn impressive 3D models... this guy.

Does a lot of tidying up work, has helped to clean up a lot of articles. Has helped revamp a large amount of pages, and improved a huge amount of others. Quite a bit of template work too. Friendly disposition and always eager to help other editors.

Stev has done a considerable amount of work on the wiki. Recently he's been doing a lot of tedious editing. Present regularly on the IRC and always ready to help.
Since he started editing on Sept. 10th, 2010, he's done some really great things, including all that re-theming he did for the tables on various update-related articles including Very Scary Halloween Special, Scream Fortress Update and Mac Update. When I started here back in November 2010, I noticed Stevosiak's work rather quickly. I really don't know how he has the juice to keep doing all the little tedious edit-jobs that he does here. He's simply amazing.
I don't know Stevoisiak particularly well (read: I don't know Stevoisiak) but gog damn just have a scroll through dat contribs list it seems pretty clear to me that this guy deserves a cap. Just look at the achievements he (rightfully) boasts of on his user page, over 3000 edits? That's some solid work.

Overall, he made over 1900 edits and spend many times translating and editing articles.

2011-12-04 2012-01-22 What I would consider a valuable contributor. over 3000 edits, Greets new members, helpful, friendly, and does a large amount of valuable work that should not go un-noticed.

Like a real ninja, M-Ninja is one of those people who you never really notice. His edits are not the most flashy edits on the newest items, but instead focus on polishing the mass amount of content that we have on this wiki. He does his job not for recognition, but to help make the wiki better for everyone who uses it.
Of course. Good, valuable edits, participates in discussions, and doesn't hate me. All his edits that I have seen are of good intent.
M-NINJA is one of those people who seems to have always been there - I'm genuinely surprised he doesn't have a cap already! Always makes useful edits, and there's barely a template on the wiki he hasn't improved in some way or another. He might seem invisible at times, but I'm pretty sure everyone here has benefitted from his work.
As has been mentioned before, M-Ninja is a mostly silent contributor, he has been working very hard and for a long time to improve the wiki, clearly out of nothing more than wanting to improve the wiki, however as of late he's been on the IRC from time to time, and does seem like a nice person. Looking through his contribs list shows that his edits have a lot of attention to detail behind them: categorization edits, small cleanups. Really, who does categorization edits benefit? The general users of the wiki? In my opinion, certainly not, it benefits the editors more than anyone else, on more than one occasion I've needed to go through category pages in order to find something, and potentially if M-Ninja wasn't doing what he was maybe I wouldn't have found it. Licensing is always a plus as well, don't want to be illegal now do we. One wikichievement on his userpage struck me: Over 300 edits in one day? That is a -lot- of work. He also has an eye for other smaller details, like the rc list, got a few undone edits on there too. Apart from what I've mentioned, his userpage checklist provides a good insight in to some of the things he's done. In my opinion, a deserving candidate.
M-NINJA is like Calvin Coolidge. Who is he? Nobody knows, but he is very efficient at his job of polishing up the stuff that we put on the wiki. He edits often and edits well, doing work that most of us haven't heard of before or forgot to do. His work is mainly geared towards us, the people who work to make sure the wiki is user-friendly and helpful. The licensing! The categorization! The cleanup! All of this makes our lives as editors easier, and I think that this user who has helped the common editor so much should deserve the cap.

Where can I begin. Cooper Kid has done SO much for the wiki, it's hard to know why he doesn't own a wiki cap yet. He's a very friendly user, who constantly keeps templates and article pages up to date, and shows a strong desire to improve them. He does a lot of minor, but important editing(such as grammar fixes, redirects etc), over 1700 valuable edits, maintains the hat of the month page; he's very helpful (specially in talk pages), has made a few infoboxes, AND he knows how to pronounce Claidheamh Mòr.

Waitwaitwait, he doesn't have one? :O Very good edits, helped me a wee bit, contributes to discussions, and, again, very good and useful edits.
He's good editor. And he know about most of everything I want to know. His knowledge is better than me.
Cooper Kid seems to do a lot of smaller things, but a lot of smaller things that matter a larger amount. He'll fix or update templates where it needs to be done, he's a frequent contributor to talk page discussions, he seems to have a bit of an eye for dat rc list with more than a few undos, and notably he's taken it upon himself to keep the Hat/Misc of the month updated, which before he decided to do this was sadly ignored (which was good for me, because I got to make a point by non-randomly flipping it to bald engy, I enjoyed dis). Overall I think these small but important (and large in quantity) edits make for someone who deserves ze cap. This wiki user definitely deserves a cap. Although i haven't talked to him much, he has made a lot of useful contributions which I'm sure a lot of others have noticed.
Ach, I cannae say evil about Cooper Kid! When I was a wee editor, he helped me create userboxes, and I must say that Cooper displays a friendly attitude to everyone he meets. There's naught bad about the lad, and his help with the templates and minor edits should be applauded with a bloody cap.

Not only has this Miss proven out to be good backup as Medic ingame, but when it comes to translations, fixings, spelling corrections and helping users... damn.

2012-02-12 2012-03-04 One of the most consistent french editor on the wiki. Over the past (almost) year and a half, he has done near 1500 edits on the wiki. Eventhough he doesn't do huge chunks of translation at once he's the only one that's been sticking for so long, consistently updating pages, translating new ones and correcting others. He's the one lurking in the shadow, the one you never see, but the one that always makes great edits, keeping the french wiki at a good level of quality. For his silent dedication, it's my thinking he deserves a Wiki Cap.

Probably the most active contributor for French articles. Almost working everyday on the Wiki; it can be for a little correction, but also for a full article translation! Like Tturbo said above, this member works in the shadow, he doesn't search glory or gratitude, he just makes its work by pleasure. For my part, HunterCham deserves the Magical Shiny Hat! :)

2012-01-23 2012-05-06 After this user's rather touching post in the Talk section I have decided to nominate him. Not because I've known him for such a long time, or because I felt sad for him. After his post I started to check his edits, read them, re-check them, enjoy them, even. It occurred to me at that moment: this user has been working in silence for a really long time doing a great job. Now I know that in the past there were some concerns about the quality of this user's translations, and I have been shown the chatlogs in regards to this issue. However, these issues seem rather petty in comparison to the amount of work and effort Hefaistus has put into the Dutch wiki these past 1,5 years, and I do disagree with several of the things mentioned in these logs. I should also note that his translations have improved quite a lot since the earlier mentioned incident. Besides that, he was also one of the first people to contact me when I started translating and complementing me on my work while simultaniously offering me his assistance if I needed any. Hefaistus I do apreciate the work you have put in, and that is why you are now officially nominated!

I looked up his edits in the past until now. And some people may think that to be old is not a reason enough to give him a reward. But to build a foundation for every dutch person is a reason. If he wouldn't have done this work, no one would have a base about how to edit dutch articles. He is one big supporting pillar for the dutch wiki.

When i first joined, i made some mistakes but then Hefaistus gave me alot of information about how could i improve and what i did wrong.Also he is a great dutch translator and editor. Thanks Hefaistus, i think you deserve it :D

Eventhough I'm not active anymore, because I don't have much time, I just wanted to add that Hefaistus was a great help when I first joined here, he gave me some links to some Dutch information pages (that he made) with common translations and other important information and helped me out when I made mistakes. He's one of the guys that sticks around and if there is someone that has put a lot of effort in the Dutch wiki, then it's him. Like Warlike said, he worked on the Dutch wiki in silence for a really long time and wasn't really noticed, because there aren't a lot of active Dutch wiki translaters out there that say that he's doing a REALLY good job, in contrary to the other language community's on this Wiki that are rather big. Hefaistus is the big driving engine behind the Dutch wiki part.

2012-02-28 2012-06-24 Since he started Wiki at December 6 2010, He made over 1,100 edits with a very nice quality and many of them are new pages. He is most active Korean translator and he translated a lot of useful articles. (such as Saxton Hale, Administrator, Storyline, Official map articles, etc.) He also one of the first who translate new articles and update articles to latest. He is a handful of active Korean translator, as well as he made Korean translation progress to almost 90 percent. If he weren't here, maybe Korean language articles are such like a wasteland. He is very kind as well. In personally, he taught me how to edit articles. :) Not because I known him, I think he truly deserves a Wiki Cap as great Korean translator.

Yeah, dis is the best Korean contributor. Holy *** made over 1000 edits! working on Korean wiki. He really deserve the Wiki Cap.

Even though I have failed to fulfill my duty to keep the Korean Wiki updated for sometime, this guy took care of wiki very well. Some people may not like the flow/style of this guy's translation, I think his/her translation is just fine. I took my time to check over the previous his translations - it was easy to understand, simple and clear, and most of importantly, no sign of Google translation at all! Besides, he is part of STS, so at least that proves people other than me approved yjy's work ;) Also, though number of edits really doesn't prove the quality of all the works, it proves consistency over a year of dedication. Therefore I recommend yjy.

2012-04-19 2012-07-01 Since Xenak joined the wiki over a year ago, he has made over 1,200 edits. He has been a guide for many people! He is also on the IRC a lot. He played on the official Wiki UGC team during season 5. He mainly fixes links on here, but also does odd jobs with and makes a lot of puns! He pretty much taught me everything I need to know about editing here on the Wiki. That is why I think he deserves the Wiki Cap.

He's always around in the IRC channel and always contributes. He helps new users out all the time, seems to be online all the time, and is just an overall cool person.

He's always on the IRC channel and contributes a lot to the wiki. He has been with the wiki for over a year now and he is still contributing. Honestly, most people would give up after a year, but he still keeps on going. I like that he is so confident on that. There is no reason why he shouldn't earn a wiki cap.

Xenak stands out as the member of the IRC who helps new users by far the most enthusiastically. I can't vouch for the quality of his edits, as I only speak English, but he is certainly committed to contributing on a regular basis.

Xenak is almost constantly editing pages to improve the wiki; he is essentially unable to sit idle. As well as welcoming new users in the IRC, he always has a great sense of humor to boot.

I've only been back for a short time, but already I've seem wonderful things from Xenak. He is pretty much always in the IRC and is always very talkative - a nice little trait not many people have. He is also both very friendly and approachable. A fantastic nomination to receive a Cap.

Xenax is a user who is always contributing (over 3000 contributions so far), and his work is that of high standards. Above all he's very friendly and shows no sign of rudeness.

Xenak is a top notch editor, he's often seen fixing links on various pages, and he often spends time in the irc channel where he's always friendly to everyone.

This guy. Yes, this guy certainly deserves wiki cap. His consistency of fixing, editing, updating the wiki, and even entertaining/assisting the wiki people on the irc is indeed admirable and praiseworthy.

2012-04-26 2012-07-01 Ever since rebmcr joined the wiki, he was always a big help when it comes to uploading new images or improving bad ones. On his journey, he made a lot of new images and reached more than 1500 edits! He's very often seen on the IRC and he's very pleasant there as well. I as a uploader am amazed at his work. He uses a python script in order to remove the white backgrounds, he continuously uploades new images that are needed or must be redone, he makes some really great templates and he even has the time to crush every image, so WindBot doesn't have to! This guy is really amazing and I think a wiki cap would be a good reward for all his great and hard work.

Painted images are the tip of the iceberg for all the work he tries to do towards the wiki.

rebmcr is an excellent contributor who makes plenty of images that benefit the wiki. He/she is always in the IRC, and has been around for a very long time. He/she knows what sort of work is relevant, and what his/her role is within the wiki. rebmcr fills his/her role very well, if you ask me. For this, I think he/she should be rewarded with a cap.

I believe rebmcr should receive the wiki cap for being a great influence and contributor within the TF2 wiki community. He does his best to help everyone. For example, he is currently working on a way to make it easier to indicate available qualities for hats, as mentioned on the discussion page where we are discussing whether information about unusuals should be added to the info boxes on individual hat pages.

rebmcr is one of the main picture uploading guys in Wiki. He uploads those so many that he spams IRC full of pictures that have been uploaded. He is IRC regular too and he makes templates to make Wiki editing easier. rebmcr is also helpful, cooperative and community-minded, at all times. If you need help, just ask rebmcr. He helps you. In my opinion, rebmcr deserves his Wiki Cap.

Very deserving individual. Eagerness to take on such big projects shows dedication.

He is very very very dedicated. As fas as i can tell he is very active in the chat and also a person you can talk to if you are bored, or need some stuff to discuss. He has maybe not that many sparkles around him if you talk to him, but that's only because he does his job very efficient like an engineer. Nothing that would shine for itself it's nonethenless outstanding great work. And i think that in it's way should be a good example for an editor which works hard and good.

reb works hard and moves fast, he's extremely quick in pushing out paint galleries and is also of help whenever needed, wherever needed (i.e. IRC). Is also good at template and will try to improve anything he thinks could be done better. Very deserving.

Reb is an extremely dedicated and hard-working individual who is quick to act (even if that means he is a bit too hasty!). His appetence towards pushing out edits is amazing. He is always in the IRC whenever I am there and proves himself to be a very kind and funny individual. A very deserving person for a Wiki Cap.

I constantly see Reb spamming the irc channel with tons and tons of image uploads. He's often hanging out in the irc channel and he's always helpful and community-minded. I think he deserves a wiki cap.

Ceiling Man Mr. Magoolachub
RagnarHomsar
2012-06-12 2012-10-21 Ceiling Man is another of the Wiki's silent contributors, I can really only put it down to this as to why he hasn't been nominated before. I don't know if I'm the only one that's been watching Ceiling Man, but judging from the lack of nominations I'll have to guess so. Ceiling Man is another of the Wiki's image makers, and he's a stickler for quality. After he discovered how to alter cubemaps in HLMV I have seen him go through and alter many old images that used the default hl2 cubemap to give them a more tf2-y feel. When I uploaded an image containing a problem with the eyes that I didn't even pick up on, he noticed it and replaced it. He's always very quick to update a new item page with a good infobox image and will monitor the page for leetle errors.

Active since late 2010, and by active I mean with no large gaps in edit amount, actively editing since end 2010 right up until now, I strongly believe Celing Man is deserving of a cap.

As an addendum, TheDoctor's denomination is entirely false. Ceiling Man has uploaded many many thing that are not from a batch. I would go so far as to say that is predominantly all he has uploaded.

Ceiling Man's done quite a lot for the Wiki in terms of images, and I say this a fellow "image guy". I can guarantee you most of the header images for hat/misc. item pages are the work of Ceiling Man, and he's made images that are of consistently high quality. He's also pleasant to talk to, and I have yet to see someone get into an argument with him. Outside of images, he does great "little" edits for articles, and overall makes the Wiki a much better place.

Also gonna protest the denomination below me, CM hasn't done anything involving scripts and I have no idea where that came from.

Note: Wind is heading the demonstration video project, when he says someone is doing a bunch of them he damn well means it, and will not back videos which are not of quality. This is why this reason is sufficient. - Lagg

Karma makes a lot of demos. The quality of the videos is simply fantastic. He always shows every possible positive or negative site of the item that he demonstrates. Always gets the job done very well and as fast as needed.

rewrite - Wind's reason establishes that he does a lot of good videos, but give reasons why it sticks out or remove

rewrite - If it's obvious, leaving feedback here is redundant. There are many patient and helpful people on the wiki, but how does his helpfulness stick out in a way not previously established?

Karmacharger is a very kind and helpful contributor to the wiki. His weapon demonstration videos is his thing and he sticks to it pretty well. For I am also a weapon demonstrator, I have been through some rough times myself when I was just starting. After a while, we became very good friends on Steam and he has helped me with tips and tutorials on how to work everything that is in the weapon demonstration category. He has also helped me play a role in some of my videos and I thank him very much for it. Since he is a very active demonstrator, polite, and helpful user, he should deserve a Wiki Cap!

2012-06-15 2012-11-04 Asplode is the top contributor to the Finnish wiki, he is one of the few, if not the only one, who translates regularly. He translates multiple pages each day and he knows how and when to use the correct templates. Not to mention he also translates templates and helps out in other sections of the wiki. Asplode is also a really friendly and helpful person. He often hangs out in the IRC, where he’ll assist you if needed.

Asplode has contributed a great amount to the wiki, whether it be having entertaining discussions in the IRC, welcoming new users, making minor edits on the English side, or translating pages to Finnish. For these reasons, I believe he should get Capped.

Asplode is one of the most active Finnish translators in the wiki. He translates many new pages to Finnish, helps new users and also makes random edits to the English pages. So yeah, I think he should get a price from his contributions.

Pictogram plus.png Soooo for the following reasons i think he should be discussed: He updates and adds the really outdated /fi language in articles and templates.

Asplode is probably the only Finnish translator, whose job is very hard (considering he's by himself a lot of the time), but he presses on despite this. He shows commitment and dedication in his translations, the latter of which are always well done and professional. He is constantly maintaining the Finnish wiki, making sure that all fixes are fixed and incorrect edits are correct. In addition, he is in the IRC a lot, and is a funny guy to speak to.

2012-06-19 2012-11-04 Although he hasn't been active for few weeks, LiquidFire is still the main contributor of Danish version of Wiki, and he is the person who has made Danish version of the Wiki A MUCH better place, by fixing and translating articles and templates. Although there really aren't regular Danish contributors in Wiki besides him, it is very important that there is still at least that one (I can say from my own experience). He has also done some contribution to English Wiki. He has patrolled Recent Changes log and he has undone many unnecessary/bad edits. He is IRC regular, participating in some discussions and he also behaves very politely there, giving a good picture about himself. And he also is community-minded; by asking help from him usually gets you some help.

Pictogram plus.png  He still continue editing and improve the /da sections like create the page and add info about it, update feeds and translated the whole page.

Pictogram plus.png  LiquidFire is the danish guy you need to ubercharge the progress of every danish article. He is a fast worker, with a direct line to the people. He adds new content as also updates changes fast. Some people think you can't judge other people languages by reading it. I judge people by using the templates and links correctly. I think he is doing a very very good job with the way he edits. And maybe i only support him because he plays a very good aggressive Soldier in TF2, but nonethenless i think a dedicated person like him (irc, user talk, tf2 talk) should maybe get a one or two sparkles for his work. Cave Johnson we are done here.

An editor with a fantastic sense of humor and who is undaunted by the task of translating the other 90% of the Danish wiki, LiquidFire is fully deserving of such a reward.

He's helped me to understand how certain elements of the wiki worked on the IRC channel, and this more than once, which is a very good element considered that there are enough times where my questions tend (aka: used to) go unanswered.

He helped in translation a lot of times, uploaded many images, and he is a really cheerful person that is nice to chat with. (a really rare occasion even on Wiki)

I agree actually with everyone of you're, who believes, what KosToLoM should own a Wiki Cap. I want to congratulate KosToLoM for the good work — fixin' bad edits and translations. I think, KosToLoM should own a Wiki Cap. He is the best active Russian contributor now.

One of those guys, who is always checking existing articles for their small mistakes and old information. Fast as a ninja and takes effort to help run Russian TF2 Wiki at the top.

Monitors recent changes, hunting for mistakes and TF2 Wiki rules violations. Translates large chunks of articles, and — what I personally appreciate most of all — does this with almost ideal grammar and literary language. Participates in discussions on improving russian translation progress. Contributes to the materials helping new TF2 Wiki members. Yes — he surely is one of the most productive russian translators.

It would have been very diffiult for me to start here, but AgentBull made it much easier for me and he did explain quite a lot of things.

A trusted user who has his hand in making 3D images, thumbnails for weapon demos, paint images, class galleries, basically everything. I'm actually really surprised not only that he did not have a cap already, but that he had not been nominated again.

He has been translating on the /tr section for some time (approximatly 10 months) and worked on both hats, misc items, updates, templates, classes etc. He also goes back to old article in order to either fix on grammar, mistakes by other /tr users, outdated things or add new patchnotes/info. He is one of the long time contributors to his own language and from what I hear, the quality on his texts is pretty accurate, good grammar and well written. He search for help when needed and consults me before starting editing fields he has not explored so he get a explanation so he doesn't struggle through the edits. In general, he is a guy who is really nice and politely, whom you can deal with and shows what I can call "community spirit". This is one gem in the treasure box. N/A

2012-09-07 2013-02-03 Pictogram plus.png  I know most of the people do not know this guy, and will ask many questions about why this guy should get a Wiki Cap. However, he has joined OTFWiki since 2010, only two months after I did. So he's been here for a long time, doing contribution silently for zh-hant Wiki. Although he does not show up in the Wiki as often as I do, he is the one I think who is the most valuable translator at the moment ,and should give him a Wiki Cap as a reward for things he had done. I have many reason to explain the point:
* First, he often gave me many better advices about how to translate many things when I am going to translate new thing into Chinese. The Strange weapons' ranks titles are all his ideas, which I still think it is amazing (4 Chinese characters for every title? That's genius!), other things like some Pyromania items, some items' description. Many of them are his ideas of advices. Without his help, I could not make zh-hant Wiki an accurate-translation place by myself (you know...few people will edit zh-hant pages).
* Second, Most of the time I edit the pages alone, but whenever I need help, just contact him and he will always answer my call in a brief moment. Whatever it is translation problems, or the zh-hans plagiarism incident happened before, he will give me a hand at the time I need the most. Definitely the MVP in zh-hant, and the best helper I have ever found.
* Last, I know that quality is more important than quantity, so I think fewer edits counts will not block him from getting cap. I always check every edits in zh-hant when I have time, and I can approve that his edits are really high quality. It's really helpful because I sometimes make some places wrong unwarily when editing, he is the right-hand man who will clear it out.
As above, I thing letting this person have the Wiki Cap, will be a good choice and an encouraging present for him.

2012-11-07 2013-04-02 Pictogram plus.png  TheDoc is definitely the most active German contributor and even was the only one in the /de section for a looong time. He's the guy who always updates the /de strings in the dictionary when an update arrives and he also adds new content quickly (he translated all the australian christmas 2011 pages on his own!). He re-examines old translations and updates them (on July 9, 2012 he fixed and updated ~180 articles to increase the quality in the /de section) and he even edits English, /nl, and /no pages. TheDoc also helps other users, he constantly gives me tips how to improve my translations or how to use templates, etc.

He is a well-known regular in IRC and general wiki discussion.. The reason why he didn't earn the wiki cap so far are his language skills; I think he considerably improved in this matter. The grammer still isn't perfect but I don't know anyone who uses German grammar perfectly :D His translations are never wrong, it's rather a matter of good expression but you can always understand what he's saying and his translations are good enough for the wiki's quality standards. He even managed to join the STS, I know that's not important in the wiki but it shows the quality of his translations. To satisfy moderator's demand for specific contributions: HERE ARE A FEW EXAMPLES.
Pictogram plus.png  Doc has always been a pleasure to work with. He is very community minded and has pretty much always done a great job with both translating into German aswell as keeping an eye out for helping or correcting new editors. My German is admittedly a little stale but I can safely say and vouch that his translation quality is very good indeed, aside from a few grammar issues here and there, which quite frankly I don't think even bother any native Germans whatsoever. What I personally think is interesting is the fact that he continually strives to improve, even after not getting the wiki cap twice he dealt with the criticism given to him and worked on his communicational 'problems'. I don't often nominate people but damn, if someone is long overdue for a wiki cap it's this guy right here.
Pictogram plus.png  He helped me a lot to get into the Wiki translation stuff, explained me the use of Templates, the Dictionary etc. He is also very active and updates many articles to the current level.

If you check his contributions page, you'll see that grammar mistakes and broken links are not tolerated as well. I believe that rewarding this user will be more than fair, and the Wiki will continue to have well-done Korean articles. :)

Pictogram plus.png  He must be amongst the most useful and active editors so far on the tf2-wiki with a amazingly high amount of useful contributions, he is active nearly every day and has been around for over 2 years with the most active times around 2012-2013. He is known by many and is also one of the regulars in the IRC chat and is there most of the times to talk/help.

What he does most on the tf2-wiki is cleaning up pages for any flaw there might be, just as well as checking the recent changes for any kind of bad edit to quickly be there to sort things up and add something to that users User-page concerning the problem. He is also very good towards new users who needs help with any obstacle concerning the wiki with either adding to the User-talk page or when someone ask for help in the IRC chat. He shows great desire to contribute to the tf2-wiki just as well as the community and has a very great attitude towards everyone in his way so I'd like to say that he deserves the award of a wiki-cap!
Pictogram plus.png  Even though it might be an early nomination, Ashes has done in 4 months what would take any ordinary person far longer. He's ALWAYS busy doing maintenance work, monitoring the recent changes, fixing and updating stuff, while at the same time being utmost active and helpful in the IRC. He's a template's best friend, he's the first one to get pages ready when updates pop up, and his edits not seldomly flood the recent changes. His work is what keeps the Wiki organized and structured. It is for all of the above reasons that I believe Ashes deserves the privilege of receiving a Cap.
Pictogram plus.png  I've seen Ashes plugging away at the wiki since I can remember. Always mass updating infoboxes, adding categories, just overall making sure that each article and file is up to date, especially after an update. Whenever he finds any sort of problem with something, he is quick to bring it to light to ensure it is rectified. He's also one of the most enthusiastic editor's I've seen, constantly searching for a new way to help, even by trying to explore new fields of the wiki. Overall, I feel his hard work and dedication have definitely qualified him for a cap.
Pictogram plus.png  Ashes is the most active editor by FAR I've seen as of late. I've not seen few days where he hasn't edited some part of the wiki. He consistently makes sure everything is up-to-date, and helps to keep the Wiki as organised as it is. He is even delving into languages he may not necessarily have first hand experience at and helping to keep THOSE segments of the Wiki in order. He's one of the most, if not THE most enthusiastic editor I've seen in a LONG time. There's not very many ways I've seen that he HASN'T helped. He seems to not take ANY rest when helping. Those times when I can help (don't get me wrong, I try, but he goes above and beyond when it comes to helping), I see him DOMINATING the recent changes, sneaking in, fixing those errors, and sorting out absolutely ABSURD amount of pages. In summary, I believe his pure DEDICATION have more than made him deserving for one of those caps.
Pictogram plus.png  The amount of edits Ashes makes are so astronomical that at first I was wondering if he was a bot. No, Ashes is simply an extraordinarily dedicated user who, while his edits may be small in size, big in effect. Without him, the wiki's translation pages would be few and far between. I've also noted that he keeps an eye on new users and assists them with newbie tips or other helpful pieces of information everyone might not always know. If he doesn't get a Wiki Cap, then I'd like to see someone who deserves it more than him. Edit: He took over the Recent Changes log again.
Pictogram plus.png Always around on IRC, contributing to the discussion, especially when it is meaningful.
Pictogram plus.png He always, always categorizes the images I upload. He's like a combination of a Spy and a stalker the way he does it. Less than a few minutes after I upload anything, he comes right out and puts them in their proper categories. I have never seen anybody with that type of organizational dedication in regards to images.

2013-03-22 2013-05-27 Pictogram plus.png  Hinaomi is one of the most active contributor. After last time of his nomination, he changed his style from Copy+Paste edits only to do some pain works like Templates. Even thought that he's Thai and conflict with each other due language barrier but he can understand English better than many Thai poeple I saw. Some of his template helped a lot of many users like this, this, this and this, also he updated a ton of templates. Here are example.

Pictogram plus.png  Hinaomi is always right there in the IRC when you need a big job done. The amount of data he turned into templates and the amount of bad information he reverted is impressive to say the least and I believe that his work is of paramount importance to keep this Wiki structured and organized.
Pictogram plus.png  I'll cut through the buzzwords and keep it simple. I've watched this guy grow into a solid Wiki editor while helping him overcome any language barriers he may have faced here. He's got a good range of contributions and he's becoming more active on the discussion side of the Wiki. I'm not a huge fan of over-templatising, but his other work more than makes up for it. I feel as though he's overcome the shortfalls and doubts I had about him the last time he was nominated.
Pictogram plus.png  What can I say - Hinaomi has to be one of the most active users here on the Wiki. If something needs done, chances are he'll be the first to have a stab at it. While he started off as a novice and made his fair share of mistakes (we all did) he's certainly put in the effort to improve. He isn't afraid to take up even the most menial tasks and puts up hundreds of minor edits, fixing the little things we all miss out but are nonetheless important. He fixes, updates and improves templates, and even creates new ones when they're needed. I think the sheer volume - along with the quality - of his edits is enough to merit a cap, and he's really improved his work over the past year.

He has been around for almost two and a half years, not only constantly keeping the Wiki up to date by translating new content and updating old content, but also always being present in the IRC to fulfill requests and help other users out. He actually uses his moderator powers and does the chores others mods leave aside. His work is both high quality (as far as my knowledge of French goes) and high quantity. 'Stache has proven to be one of the assets of this Wiki and I therefore believe he deserves this privilege.

Pictogram plus.png  French moderator that really fast at adding language to templates, 90% after I crated templates, Stache will be the first guy who add his translation to template. That's equal his translation skill is really awesome. Also not only translate, He updated pages, fixed some grammars and more.

He's also highly active on the IRC and is always a friendly face to see on there. An all around great user!

His mass amounts of images are in top quality and is a great help and example to new users who also seek help regarding images. He also keeps up with all updates and articles making sure all images are accounted for. A great person in my opinion on both the wiki and IRC.
Pictogram plus.png  One of the only guys on the Wiki who uploads all the painted images of caps when they are released. He's done a lot of image work for the wiki, even uploading "Over 170" images in one day, and all of his images are of fantastic quality. He's also a great help, teaching me the basics of posing players in HLMV (as well as using his talk page as instructions more than once!). I was privvy to nominate him for a Wiki Cap myself, but then somebody did it before I could! Works hard, deserves the hat.
Pictogram plus.png  Besides uploading a huge amount of high-quality images, Cobaltcakes is always eager to teach people things and to help them out in need. Whenever I ask a question in the IRC about Photoshop, HLMV or Source SDK in general, Cobaltcakes is guaranteed to be the first one to give me a detailed walkthrough. He's active, helpful and friendly and not only a great editor but also a great teacher.

2013-06-01 2013-07-26 Pictogram plus.png  After looking at him for a while, he's the one of active contributors that always stay in IRC. He's not only the translator, he can do some nice quality image, revert the bad imformation and many more.

Pictogram plus.png  Eels is always around doing lots of various tasks. He's an extremely active /nl translator, and even though I know nothing if translations myself, he really seems to know what he's doing. Eels is also incredibely helpful with new users, always jumping in to help them when he can or welcoming them to the wiki. He brightens up the IRC daily, and even helps out with images from time to time. I believe he's shown great dedication to the wiki and I definitely believe he deserves the cap.
Pictogram plus.png  I know I don't edit here much, but I am on IRC daily and do look over whats being done. Eels pretty much is translation on this wiki. Anytime a translator has a question, they go to Eels and he points them in the right direction. He is always making sure everything is in order, translating to nl, checking over the work of others spotting whats wrong with other translations and just being a great help to the wiki as a whole. He is a huge help to the wiki and a great guy, he definitely deserves the cap.
Pictogram plus.png  To add onto the reasons given above, I can confirm that Eels has a very good graps on the Dutch language, regularly outdoing me on grammar. His hard work on the Dutch side of the Wiki also meant that the Dutch pages didn't get into heavy disrepair after my defection to the Dota 2 Wiki. As a veteran Dutch Wiki editor, Eels has my full support.
Pictogram plus.png  I´m not here in the wiki for a long time, but, Eels has helped me a lot of times when i needed help, and also, he has helped a lot of people and works hard to improve the wiki.
Pictogram plus.png  Eels was the first guy who welcomed me when I joined the wiki. I didn't know much about wiki codes and added him on steam, he directly accepted my friend request and helped me with coding my own user page, he even allowed me to copy some of his code. I always see him in IRC and he seems like one of the most active wiki translators and also knows a lot about templates.
Pictogram plus.png  Eels is one of the most active users on the tf2 wiki. He speaks more than 4 languages while creating and editing a huge amount of high quality pages in several languages. Eels is always happy to help newcomers both on the wiki and IRC. I am one of many whom Eels first greeted and offered his help on the IRC channel, but often gives advice to more experienced Wikiusers. He has also uploaded a huge number of high-quality images, he always checks every article for outdated information and poor quality edits. He also updates the dictionary and performs many other useful work with excellent quality. In my opinion, Eels has done a vast number of edits and these edits prove that his efforts and his dedication towards the wiki should earn him a cap.
Pictogram plus.png  Eels is one of the most good editors on the tf2 wiki. He help other users, to improve the Team Fortress Wiki with constant tips and coordination, and contribute to the wiki by doing a lot of "manual edits", such as update many templates and other. He deserves to get a cap.
Pictogram plus.png  LONG FISH IS KREDIT TO TEAM! Eels seems to be almost the only active /nl translator and he does plenty of work. He contributes to several different languages and knows his way around templates as well. 'nuff said. The others already listed the most important facts. One of the best contributors we've ever had :)
Pictogram plus.png  Eels, One of the most active users i've seen that is not only helpful through small edits and translations, But he is willing to give other things a try like uploading quality images and paint previews. He is extremely helpful and is willing to help if there is work to be done. Long story short, This slimy lil fish is awesome :3.
Pictogram plus.png  Eels is definitely one of the most active users at the Wiki right now. He's constantly translating nl pages, updating old ones, adding translations to templates, greeting new users, doing minor fixups and even creating pictures, should the situation call for it. He's always at the IRC, greeting new editors there as well and willing to help out old and new users alike.
Pictogram plus.png  I´m not a long time here but Eels has helped a lot of times a lot of people and works hard to improve the wiki. Eels often gives advice to help. He also checks every article for outdated information. He updates the dictionary and many other useful work. In my opinion, Eels should earn a cap.
Pictogram plus.png  I joined a few months ago and i had no idea about the wiki, Eels helped me alot with all the noob questions 24/7 on the IRC. He's a really cool guy.
Pictogram plus.png  Eels was the first user to help me getting started on the wiki, he is always there for you in the IRC and he provides great contributitions to the wiki.
Pictogram plus.png  Eels was helping me ever since I joined wiki, if I accidently did something wrong, he gave me a message about what I did wrong, and he fixed it up for me, he has also got a lot of contributions, he's a very friendly user and a cool guy and I hope he will get his deserved Wiki Cap.
Pictogram plus.png  He quickly got me started on the wiki, he was very friendly and told me how to improve my translating right of the bat and got me more motivated to do so as well. He does a lot of translating of outstanding quality and is pretty active too, teaching newcomers how to do their edits so that the quality of the Wiki improves further much quicker.
Pictogram plus.png  Eels is a nice and polite person, who is always helping the newcomers of the wiki. Whenever someone new joins the wiki, he is always there to help and answers the questions of the people wihthin the irc-channel. Also he is a great contributor and improves the wiki a lot.

His spam has not only been known to blot out the sun (Recent Changes Log) but also ensures that even the smallest necessary details on pages are not left unnoticed. He's also a very dedicated Finnish translator, who rushes to make translations whenever possible. All of this, in my opinion, should definitely qualify him for a shiny hat.

Knows how to work with the dictionary and keeps it updated. Pretty common guest on IRC, friendly. Isn't affraid of asking things he don't know and share his knowledge with newcomers. Keeps both old and new articles fresh and up-to-date. Will help you with anything you'd ask him.

Pictogram plus.png  Do you remember that I did a ton of templates? If you do, I said on 'Stache nomination that 'Stache is the first guy who add the translation. Yes, Gonard is the second guy who add his translation. He always ask me to do the new templates to let him translate even I don't have time to look around. His /ru skill is good enough to make me nominate him. Also he's the guy who friendly, easy to talk, can simple found on IRC, did a lot of hard work.
Pictogram plus.png  You can clearly see the progress Gonard has achieved since the moment when he asked me for a consultation on editing at the start of his work. Nowadays Gonard is one of the most active translators for the Russian part of TF2Wiki: his most notable works include full translations and constant updates of this, this, this, this, this and many other articles. Gonard is also known for checking corrections made by other members. He is often found at Wiki’s IRC willing to answer questions on editing, formatting, translating and support newcomers. Pictogram plus.png  I just glad to see so intelligent editor on wiki. He works for quality, not for quanity. Gonard 's particularly important credit is syncronization of translated names with STS and, of cource, greetings of newcomers (at least 15). Also he provides reviewing of trivia and pages' accordance with English versions.
Pictogram plus.png  From myself I want to add that this fellow is doing a very good job on the Wiki. He seeks to improve quality of all the russian articles. He's also a very friendly guy!
Pictogram plus.png  One of the active Russian members of Wiki, Gonard always making Wiki better, one edit at time (literally, he fixes a whole page within one edit). Although there is almost no work, he always have something to improve.
Pictogram plus.png  A good example of "how to work". Provides Russian translation just in time and makes Russian part of TF2WIKI better. He always maintains wiki articles up to date.
Pictogram plus.png  Sometimes people good at art. Sometimes people good at work. Gonard is good at translating. If you look at his page you should see, that in contributions there's always "syncing with /en" and "translating". My vote goes to him!

2013-07-29 2014-01-15 Pictogram plus.png  Darkid, Probably one of the most helpful users I've known on the wiki. Since the day I started actively contributing to the wiki, He was there to not only help me, But also guided me on some parts of the wiki. He's also extremely helpful to other editors, Giving a nice welcome as well letting them know about what they're doing wrong and even gives suggestions to help fix those mistakes. Along side that, He not only edits the english side of the wiki, But also on the other language pages to ensure that they stay updated and do not fall behind. He puts hard work into templates including asking translators to add their translations for the use of translation switches. To Summarize all this, Darkid is probably the most helpful and is dedicated to help the wiki in as many ways as possible. His edits and contribution should not go unnoticed!

Pictogram plus.png  Helpful is not enough word to say for this guy, because this guy did a lot of hard work like touch the dictionary to help me update the Template:Hqc and much more. I think this guy really need to earn some reward for those!
Pictogram plus.png  Expercienced, kind, obedient and very active is enough for me to describe a Wiki Cap owner
Pictogram plus.png  From what I've seen, Darkid's a pretty valuable wiki editor. He's working on the wiki almost every day, if not every day, and he updates not only the English side, but the language sides of pages, to make sure that they're consistent and up to date. He corrects a lot of errors with pages having wrong categories, being named incorrectly, and problems with templates and nav bars. I've never seen anyone fill up the recent changes log as much as he has, and he manages to do it multiple times over. All in all, I think that Darkid is definitely worthy of a sparkly hat.
Pictogram plus.png  Darkid is probably best known as the Wiki's chief spammer. I kid of course, but at the cost of cluttering up the Recent Changes log comes the great benefit of adding in new content to all areas of the wiki. From categorizing accross all languages to going deep into the Wiki's technical bowels, to spending tons of time manually editing the most trivial things to contributing to new articles, Darkid truly is a jack of all trades. Somebody give him the hat before he spams us all to oblivion.

2013-10-20 2014-02-15 Pictogram plus.png  rewrite: give specific examples, we know he uploads a lot of images

Pictogram plus.png  Omolong has been contributing alot of interesting images and pictures of painted items, and also fixing some pages (give examples of these pages - Lagg) too, Omolong also helps alot of people on the IRC chat, always providing help and looking for new pictures to do!
Pictogram plus.png  Omolong has been a big part of the TFWiki community. Every update he uploads tons of images including paints,BP images, icons and even the preview images. He is always ready to help on the IRC and will help the wiki in other ways. His knowledge on the wiki and his willingness to help the wiki is what is most important. Without Omolong, The wiki would be behind on most updates without his swift uploads and edits.
Pictogram plus.png  Ok, so the rewrite needs to put example the work that's not image? I think this work and this work are worth the example.

2013-11-03 2014-02-15 Pictogram plus.png  Fuffeh has been an active /sv translator for almost a year now. Recently he has started doing an absurd amount of consistency work to other lang pages as well, keeping infoboxes and categories in sync across languages. In addition to this, he is really active in the IRC as well.

Pictogram plus.png  Fuffeh is a verry active person in the IRC, a long time ago, he wasn't on the IRC for too much time but now he came back and he is making incredible edits, fixing items and making some good work on the /sv part of the wiki, Fuffeh is also a friendly and nice person on the IRC with some new members and helps them!
Pictogram plus.png  Fuffeh is dedicated to his craft. Although I do not spend time on the wiki/IRC nowadays due to work/grad school, throughout the past year he updates me about the improvements he has done on the wiki. The proof is in the pudding, as they say. And based on the pudding (his proof of contributions and activity) it doesn't take much thinking to conclude that Fuffeh has made major, sweeping changes for the good of the wiki and is a valuable member.
Pictogram plus.png  Hm. Where to start? Well for starters, Fuffeh is a great and valued contributor to the /sv side of the wiki. He is very willing in taking any task that requires swedish translations. He has also taken the job of going through other languages to correct categories and navs. (Although he can't outspam me). He is very dedicated in helping the wiki, and is capable of doing much more. He is quite the member to remember for sure.
Pictogram plus.png  I was going to nominate this user, but saw he was already nominated! Fuffeh has caught my eye even before my return to the wiki. His helpful attitude (on the IRC and also introducing new members to the community, such as Dutch user Doomageguy recently) and longstanding dedication to not just the Swedish wiki but also maintaining and improving the wiki in other languages (see his last 50 edits for example). His contributions and consistent activity has made him a force of good for this wiki, and for that I am grateful enough to at least back this nomination.

2013-11-25 2014-02-15 Pictogram plus.png  Ricci is a Brazilian contributor who improves Pt-Br side of TF2Wiki steadily and actively. His work is not just concentrated on translate to Portuguese, he also do minor fixes and edits to other language wiki. And he also consistently uploads localized images like this and this to help Brazilian user understand more easily. That's why I nominate him and sparkling officer's cap would be a good reward for his work.

Pictogram plus.png  Ricci (Rick) is now a active person and maybe even better than i am in the pt-br part, after i got out of the wiki for a year, he took care of things arround here, after that i took his place. Then he is back again, and i see he is doing some good work! I expect alot from Ricci (rick), and i think he deserves a wikicap for his great and nice work. (rick)
Pictogram plus.png  Well... since I've reviewed Metroid7 not long ago, I thought I'd review the other Brazilian nominee in this list too. I've taken a look at Ricci's edits and they are pretty good in general. There are a few misspellings here and there, but grammarly and orthographically, they are very good. He also goes and fixes several old translations, which is great too. I don't know much about his other contributions, though, to speak about them; specially his mod duties and such. But translation-wise, I think his contributions are good enough to receive a Cap.

2014-02-16 2014-07-19 Pictogram plus.png  Looking over Ale's edits, I'd say he's done a lot of good contributions. He's the most active Spanish contributor around, and he's consistently created new pages for items and similar things when updates come out, and he makes sure to keep these pages up to date as people add and change stuff to them. Not only that, but he goes over a lot of older pages too, making sure they are correct and update to date. He's pretty active on the IRC as well, and he welcomes a lot of new users on their talk pages.

Pictogram plus.png  Ale has been very active since June, and during that time he has made lots of quality Spanish translations, as well as updating old ones at a regular pace. In addition, he constantly welcomes new users and is very active in the IRC. He has done a lot considering how he is on his own for the most part these days, but that doesn't seem to hinder him. In a nutshell: a dedicated and active (and neat) Spanish translator.
Pictogram plus.png Ale is very active on the wiki, he's the most active Spanish contributor, always updating old pages, and reverting poor edits other users make, while welcoming new users to the wiki and being very active on the IRC. Overall he's a very good contributor.
Pictogram plus.png He has shown quality edits to the wiki, especially to the spanish side. A good example of what users should strive towards.
Pictogram plus.png I've seen Ale's many translations and edits. Recently I've seen many fixes in hat/cosmetic changes. The translations though are what made me write this.
Pictogram plus.png Ale is a really active and a good ES/ translator, i've seen him updating old pages and fixing grammar and also, teaching new people to translate too! Ale is also a (neat)cool guy in the IRC, and i think he should be awarded a (sharpy) shinny hat for his hard and tough work!
Pictogram plus.png After stalked this guy for long, he's the good person. Always take care the small part that nobody noticed like change headwear item to cosmetic item in many cosmetic page. This guy works too hard, even translation. I think he should earn some reward for that and yes, don't forget to hi-five
Pictogram plus.png He has been helping many new users such as me to start editing on this wiki. Awnsers steam and talk pages very often and always helps with all his knowledge 11/10 .
Pictogram plus.png  I Thought Ale Already had a cap, apparently not. He deserves one for all the reasons stated above and more. I have not seen him mess up ever, and I remember myself breaking a few, like Community Scout Strategy. He is quite active in the irc, and helps many new users out. He is also a great translator, and really should be paid for it. He definatly deserves the cap, and probably will obtain it. He has my vote.

2014-06-10 2014-11-23 Pictogram plus.png  TidB is quite active on the wiki, here is what i have observed.
  • Whenever I am just sitting or doing something on the IRC, TidB always appears in the recent changes logs doing something helpful, adding more to articles, translating ,creating untranslated articles or actively discussing things in the IRC.
  • Will always greet new users with a warm welcome and help them out if they ask.
  • If anyone makes any template changes, big, small, dictionary additions, core templates, etc, TidB just jumps to the task and translates the template work ASAP and does so without error.

I may not know the German language but I have seen known German editors such as Agentbull commending his work only confirming even further that this user has done some very good work to only help better the wiki.
Pictogram plus.png  TidB deserves the cap all the way. He's always friendly, helps out and welcomes all new editors + he creates, updates, translates, improves teamplates and a lot of articles. Furthermore he's very active in the irc and did some hard work to help the german editors to ease the work of translating with his great WikiTranslator-Python program which saves us a lot of time and work.
Pictogram plus.png  Not only is TidB helping me whenever I got any questions or problems with the wiki, he furthermore welcomes all other new German translators, motivates them and helps them to translate, correcting them if they do something wrong. Mentionable is also the steadiness of TidB's valuable contributions, since the very beginning of his work he never had any big pauses in his time here. Besides this activity in the wiki you can also find him on the IRC very often, discussing important topcis or answering some questions. He really is a worthy succesor to our last great German translator, AgentBull.
Pictogram plus.png  TidB is clearly our best (most active, most professional, most helpful) translator at the moment. There are no large gaps in his edit timeline, and since I'm rather inactive, he translates most if not all of the recent additions (his list of translations is pretty impressive!) He's the one who translated many of the largest articles into German, even boring strategy pages like these. Bonus points for IRC activity, welcoming new users and of course his awesome WikiTranslator. I hope my opinion has some weight and as STS Mod I can guarantee that TidB's translations are (nearly) perfect :)
Pictogram plus.png  Very helpful to have a guy on the IRC. We talked about various topics and came to conclussions which would have otherwise taken days in discussions to solve. I wanted to point that out that not only to be on the IRC but to be active and respond on the IRC is a good thing. Peace & out.
Pictogram plus.png  TipB Deserves the cap beacuse he is like the best translator i ever saw and he also helps alot of people in the IRC So i 100% think's he deserve's it
Pictogram plus.png  I started editing the wiki about a week ago, and when I started, I was pretty lost and confused, (still kinda am) but TidB helped me out on the IRC and really got me going, he taught me all the basics and gave me multiple tips on how to become a better editor, and how to learn things myself. I definitely think he earned a Wiki Cap, and I really hope he gets one.
Pictogram plus.png  I started editing the wiki 3 days ago , and TidB was the only one that explained me where I did wrong , where I should practice more . And I was really surprised to see that he is a really nice person that can help you if you are confused . He is a good teacher , you could say . He really deserves a Wiki Cap .
Pictogram plus.png  TidB is always helping out when someone does a mistake. Minutes after I've edited something or created a new translated page TidB takes a look at it and finds all the spelling or grammatic issues and corrects them. He does deserve the Wiki Cap for his kindness, translation skills & activity.
Pictogram plus.png  TidB is somewhat a popular guy on the IRC, and on the wiki itself. TidB have worked in many translations for the German translation project, as well fixing many little things in any pages. Not to mention, he is the creator of the WikiTranslator, a tool created by himself that helps in many stuff (read more here). On the IRC, he's helping anyone, with about any subject I've seen, from images, to page discussions and how to properly edit a page. He also comments into user profiles how to edit a page in a good way, when someone just made their first translation, this means he watches the Recent Changes pretty much. Overall, I think that doing a program to help the wiki, being a nice guy and worked a lot into the German pages is something that makes someone being nominated, I'm pretty sure that he truly deserves it.
Pictogram plus.png  Helpful and more than active, yes, I can't qualify it any better than it already has. My comment is personal, and so might not fall neatly into the criteria; all of my experiences with the experienced editors have been positive (let me say again, all), but when interacting with TibD, I always feel like smiling.
Pictogram plus.png  TidB is a regular and he's also pretty popular on the IRC. He's always there to check recent edits made within the wiki, whether it be from new or older users, and make sure they are correct. I myself joined the wiki two weeks ago and TidB was one of the first few people I interacted with. He's the creator of a very interesting tool called the WikiTranslator which helps translating pages faster and easier. 100% useful for when major updates come along. He's also a very nice guy and I think he really deserves the cap for his contributions and overall helpfulness in the wiki.
Pictogram plus.png  Tidb...Hard worker (Credit to team) to the wiki,as he helped manny users i've seen, created some usefull tools for the wiki and also he is a verry active person on the wiki. With loutsa edits on manny articles and also on his own language as well. For me its enough for earning a "Little Shinny Cap"

2014-09-25 2015-04-04 Pictogram plus.png  After watch this guy for a long time, he's the one that can deal with the most things that we already forget. (Like add the texture that mention in trivia, Fix the things for consistency, Update the images) Also, he's nice and respectful. He keeps the pt-br sections to up-to-date, despite pt-br is one of the outdated section. He did a lot of hard works and I think it's the time to give him the reward.

Pictogram plus.png  helps out new users making sure they edit properly and correctly. He would check and give good understandable critical feedbacks suggesting what to do and what not to do for future purposes.
Pictogram plus.png  Gabrielwoj is definitely one of the most active and best users on the wiki. Starting with a large amount of consistency work regarding the switch to the "cosmetics" system, he soon advanced to uploading quite a lot missing Steam Workshop thumbnails. For some time by now, he's always creating or improving pictures with high quality, check this here, here, here or here. And he's not only updating the pictures, he even updates the corresponding articles as far as possible. Furthermore, he's active on the IRC and is helping other users with the aforementioned topics.
Pictogram plus.png  Even though I am not active on the wiki much, every time I come on I see that Gabrielwoj's name is almost always in recent changes. He has high quality edits and has contributed so much to the wiki. For example, Gabrielwoj has uploaded lots of high quality images to the wiki, he is very active, and has many other reasons that he is a great contributor. Before the WelcomeBot came online, he helped to introduce over 700 people to the wiki. He is also helping the other language sides of the wiki, as opposed to just English pages.
Pictogram plus.png  "Woj" is a active screenshot or gallery worker on the pt-br side, he has the ability of creating high quality images for the item info boxes and also, fixing and reviewing the pt-br pages when he can, he is also a active person too
Pictogram plus.png  Gabriel's done an incredible amount of work for the wiki, and plans to do even more (see his to-do list for evidence of that). He translates articles, uploads nearly innumerable amounts of images, and is generally very active. He tries to be in IRC to help out new recruits whenever he can, and is generally quite friendly and helpful to everyone. He peeks through the game's files to find possible trivia additions upon the arrival of every update. His edits often fill up entire pages of the wiki's recent changes list, and because of that he's actually broken a few wiki edit records. He's set standards to ensure unification throughout the wiki, and is professional about doing so. In short, he scours both the wiki and the game's files regularly and improves everything that he sees room for improvement in to give everyone who browses the wiki the most enjoyable experience possible.
Pictogram plus.png  Gabrielwoj always tries to help me when I've got some problems around. He especially attempts to explain to me how he creates those damn great pictures with his magic graphic tools(which he really masters). He's very active in the IRC, too, always there for a constructive discussion about some wiki details. Another important point is that he is really, really active. If you take a look at his editing history you see how regularly he is creating images and updating the wiki.
Pictogram plus.png  I believe Gabrielwoj deserves the cap due to his many contributions. Takes amazing images and he's always working hard to improve the existing wiki content, and is also a really nice guy, always worrying about others and trying to help and cheer them up. Takes part in many active discussions. Very friendly, can usually be found in the IRC. Thank you for your help! Russian bear voted for you: D
Pictogram plus.png  Gabrielwoj. As usual, splendid translator, and great helper of mine. He ALWAYS takes on the tasks I give him. As well as he fulfill them properly everytime, or almost everytime though :) But when it's too hard, at least he is trying. Never heard "I won't help you, tubi, ain't nobody got time for dat!". For what he did for Mother Wiki and his help to other translators, he totally deserves to be remembered as someone who worked really hard for the Community and for the sparkles all over his head.

2014-10-10 2015-04-04 Pictogram plus.png  Kii is an extremely experienced and active translator and editor. Nearly every translation by him has no mistakes at all which is even more impressive when considering his giant list of translations. He translates most of the Japanese pages, including small ones (numerous patch notes), medium ones (an insane amount of item articles) and huge ones, including the Community Scout strategy/ja. Besides this, he regulary updates the dictionary with the latest official names and descriptions not only in Japanese, but in other foreign languages as well. His translation efforts are not limited to articles, but also include the translation of comics, i.e. this one here. Additionally, he responds fast and friendly to messages, gets tasks done quickly and is fairly often and active in the IRC. On top of that, he compiles useful information into guides for other translators. Other notable pieces of information are his consistency edits when community site pages were removed; he fixed all links on all languages, not even mentioning other cross-language fixes, reaching from adding missing "displaytitle" templates to categorising files and pages. But again, the main reason he deserves the cap are his many, wide-spread and high-quality translations.

Pictogram plus.png  Kii is really responsible for a huge part of the Japanese translation project on this wiki, I've seen him doing translations on many type of pages, like Update Patches, Categories, Main Pages (E.g.: items/classes/weapons/maps...), Community Strategies and etc, and all of them look really good, along with all that, he does also edits/translates comics for his language. He also fixes the consistency for pages on any language, or do minor edits for a variety of languages. Concluding, he also adds vital information for new Japanese editors on the Team Fortress Wiki:Translation progress/ja page. The best reason for my nomination by far is his translation quality, I'm pretty sure that every Japanese reader would appreciate to read his translated articles.
Pictogram plus.png  What can I possibly add to what has already been said? I guess should just say what I have observed. I may have been inactive for decent durations of time, but when I come on here, I come on here for quite a while and every time I do I see Kii here making many updates and changes to the Japanese end of the wiki. There is not a day I have been on the IRC and not seen kii somewhere a numerous amount of times editing or updating articles, kii has been persistent with this for quite some time, many months even. Heck if kii weren't here, I can only imagine how much of the jap wiki would be outdated or yet to be done. I believe kii's hard work should not go un-noticed. All though I did want to nominate kii many months ago, I wanted to make sure others were getting the same vibe and what do you know? They were. Now I can give you my thumbs up without any uncertainties.

2015-02-07 2016-01-01 Pictogram plus.png  Obilisk regularly produces weapon demonstration videos of very good quality. When they need a redo because the weapon gets updated or whatnot, he follows up on it. His profile page logs the numerous demonstrations he has done. He also provides early reviews to other demonstrators so that they don't need to wait on me doing the weekly review, and these reviews are rarely off the mark.


Pictogram plus.png  Obilisk have made a lot of good quality Weapon Demonstration videos for the Weapon Demostration project with great quality, not only weapons, but as well Pyroland demonstration or Set demonstrations. He also updates the videos when a new updates comes out updating the weapon stats. His Userpage (which is very fancy), shows all his incredible work he have done, some even made more than one, as mentioned earlier, that some stuff get updated by Valve (Weapons, Cosmetics, Item Sets, etc.) and these Weapon Demonstrations have to be re-done again. Finally, he helps the people on the Weapon Demonstration discussion page with what it should be edited or re-done in order to achieve a very good quality video just like his.

2015-05-16 2016-05-17 Pictogram plus.png  I've been watching Tark's edits since one of his first contributions, and I can say how much he has been contributing since that day. From quick-traslating (with quality grammar, puntaction, consistency and etc.) new pages from new updates (Limited Late Summer Pack/pt-br, Scream Fortress 2014/pt-br, End of the Line Update/pt-br and Smissmas 2014/pt-br) as well pages other pages, such as patch notes, newly added items (such as promotional items). But we are not over yet. He also created unexistent community maps that were on the list but no pages were available (including translation for pt-br too), including, but not least, good quality images of the map in various angles/places. He also uploaded some images from the Merchandise of some items/stuff, such as Spycrab and the EoTL update. Along with all that, he is now updating all pages (cosmetics, weapons and such) to make it sync'd with the English page. He is not doing that alone, Metroid7 is helping with it as well, and both of them updates well with well written grammar. There are plenty contributions to place everything here, but to finalize, he is constantly active in various areas of the Wiki, such as replying TalkPages or UserTalks, and etc. So in a nutshell, I support Tark for the Wiki Cap, not only he have (and it's still doing) great contributions, but he is also highly active on the Wiki.

Pictogram plus.png  Tark's been helping me with my edits for a time now, and for a little time i had to stop my editings but Tark kept working on the pt-br side even without my assistance, he edits the pt-br side verry well and creates a massasive spam of minimal fixes on pages in need of updates. In adition, Tark helps me with his minimal edit fixes on updated pages i did, its been a long work for him and...he can deserve a shinny hat for that eh?
Pictogram plus.png  Although Tark is mostly on the translation side, his/her works on en section are also good and he/she has respect to other contributor. Here are some examples.
Pictogram plus.png  When I first joined TF2Wiki a little under a month ago, Tark was one of the first people there to help me get started. He's very amusing and very helpful, always there to answer my questions when I needed him the most. He's a fun guy to be around and gives helpful advice with edits. As for the contributions he made himself, he has done a lot of translating for the Brazilian Wiki. When I'm looking for ideas on how to tackle a page, he's there to give his two sense. With how fun and helpful he is, and all the work he has put into the Wiki, I believe without a doubt Tark deserves the Wiki Cap.
Pictogram plus.png  I joined the TF2Wiki just to be a member and help. Then I received a message from Tark, with lots of helpful links, and at the end of that message, he said: If you need help, contact me. Later I added him on steam and we started talking, I made lots of questions, and he responded every single one of them to me. He helped translating the TF2Wiki a lot and he is someone of great importance for this wiki. If you need help, Tark is always there to help and give advices. One last thing: If someone deserves a really beautiful hat, It's Tark.
Pictogram plus.png  Tark helped me out a lot when I started editing the wiki (and honestly, he still does), providing lots of tips and helpful information. He's an excellent all-around contributor to the wiki, helping out not only with updating and translating info, but also with pictures and even audio recently (see the audio files related to Gun Mettle/contracts, for example). He's one of the most prolific editors currently, with his name nearly always being on the recent changes log – always there fixing mistakes, updating information and translating (though his work is not limited to just the brazilian wiki!). His dedication to the wiki is simply unbelievable.
Pictogram plus.png  Tark has always been very friendly and helpful. I always see him working tirelessly on his translations as well (He is also very protective of his pages as I found out first hand). If we didn't have Tark, we would be missing out on a whole load of stuff. Above all of that I think that he is a great person who is a great addition to the wiki team and is most deserving of a hat for his efforts.
Pictogram plus.png  So far, Tark has proven that he is dedicated and has commitment to the wiki. Ranging from translations on the pt-br side of the wiki to just mass updates of other pages and or language pages using templates is quite helpful. Reduces the load of the other language sides that have little to no activity. Even taking my job at categorizing (He took ma jerb) but still understanding how things on the wiki works. His work by far should be rewarded. Exceeding most other users especially.
Pictogram plus.png  Tark seems to me to be a real asset to this community, from the dedication he shows to translation, to his friendly welcoming nature to newcomers (myself included), I believe Tark exemplifies many of the best aspects of the community. He has also been of great assistance as I have learnt how the wiki works, and even as I created pages for new items (albeit somewhat incompletely). Tark's steam chat was always open to me throughout this process, and I believe that he is a worthy recipient for the Wiki Cap.
Pictogram plus.png  Tark haven't really done much for me, but he seems like a cool guy. I see him almost everyday in the Recent changes log, translating, fixing articles, or undoing useless edits. I took a look at some of his many contributions, and I can clearly say that he have done a lot for the pt-br side of the Wiki. His many Wikichievements also show how much of an active editor he is. Shortly said— Tark is credit to Wiki!

Holy shit this took a year.
We (the wiki staff) are really bad at this cap-giving thing, and we apologize.

2015-05-25 2016-05-22 Pictogram plus.png  How can I talk about Radist's contributions? Hm, let's see: Constantly updates outdated /ru articles, translated several item/stuff articles, made a lot of translated comic pages for various comics (including update pages), and finally, he updates several pages in various languages when minor fixes needs to be done. Radist have done plenty of contributions of all types of variety for quite some time, and he is a pretty cool guy as well. So here is my nomination.


Pictogram plus.png  Oh, great, someone but me nomimated Radist. Well, he does deserve a sparkling hat I think. With his dark magic finding pages to edit for him, his Contribs counter grows on high speeds. Even his edits are not always huge, they are always quick. He keeps pages synced to English ones. He also knows his way around Templates, as far as I know. And he helped me alot to find pages to edit increase my effectiveness. What a nice head to wear a rare hat.
Pictogram plus.png  Honestly, I never thought this day would come. Radist nominated for The Wiki Cap! I can't talk a lot and pretty, so I'll be brief: it is a pleasure to work with, he is always responsive and willing to help with anything. But for him, I would have done a lot of mistakes on this Wiki. I'm voting for my "teacher" because he really deserves the shiny cap! :D
Pictogram plus.png  I am kinda new to this wiki, but i've already found a man to follow in here:It's Radist. I see his in a Recent changes log almost everytime i visit it. His translations are very accurate and i think, that he is one of the reasons, that /ru wiki still didn't outdated at all. I didn't have a conversation with him, but i'm sure, that soon i will know him closer and he will still work for this wiki!
Pictogram plus.png  Radist is quite the translator. Quick on updates and anything that needs to be done on the Russian side of the wiki. New updates comes out and he's always on top of things (Even faster than me when I started). Also very willing to help with things that extremely minor such as categories. By far the most active Russian translator on the wiki and the work he has done is a prime example of his dedication and commitment towards the TF Wiki.

Also took almost a year. heavy_oooh_dis_is_bad.wav
Ofuton Gabrielwoj 2015-05-25 2016-06-14 Pictogram plus.png  Another Japanese contributor? It seems so. Ofuton and Kii were like a partner in the Steam group that had several Japanese contributions (which now is abandoned), and both translated a lot of pages. But now, let's just talk about Ofuton. Ofuton, like Kii's, updated/created a lot of /ja pages with good quality, and he does also updates several ones to sync with the official English page (pretty quickly too, when someone edits or adds important content on the English page). His edits can vary to minor edits to really huge edits (constantly having green bolded numbers on his contributions page), and does also translates quite quickly after an update releases with new items or other content. That's my nomination for him, his nomination looks tad similar to Kii's honestly, but I can't negate, both of them have done great contributions to the /ja pages, and I hope to see more people like this for the /ja pages or any other language. Took over a year. すみませんでした (▰︶︹︶▰)
ClockworkSpirit2343 Dr. Scaphandre 2015-10-08 2016-09-08 Pictogram plus.png  Clockwork has been a member of the wiki for a little over a year and a half and has contributed to a part of it nearly everyday since. He keeps an eye on the little details and recent updates and is quick to make the needed changes. He doesn't just work in pages though, as he also works to update images and post new ones when necessary. With his eye to detail and quick reactions, I believe in my heart that Clockwork deserves a Wiki Cap.

2015-10-03 2016-09-11 Pictogram plus.png  Dr S has done a lot of work on the Gun Mettle pages, adding screenshots, fixing custom map pages, he's got it all. He's also incredibly kind when it comes to social interaction. He's an amazing guy and contributes more then enough to make the wiki amazing. I don't know what else to put here.. I nominate him. :)


Dr. Schpandre so far, has done quite alot of work so far on the wiki. Although the amount of work he's done does not seem like it would be enough to truly see him as a plausible nominee. Of course this can be changed in due time but this is my current standing. A little too soon for a nomination as there needs to be more I would personally need to see before I give a better comment on this.
Pictogram plus.png  Dr. Scaphandre was one of the first people to guide me in my confused little land that is on this wiki. They weren't mean or scared me. They embraced me with open arms and treated me like a father would son, showing me around the wiki and telling me how to do this and that and how to improve my edits. The doctor also told me to put my love and interest into my additions. Doctor Scap is nominated, and I know a lot of others are too. But I assure you, the doc is passionate about this wiki. They contribute a lot and are certainly welcoming to new guys. Their enthusiasm and cheerful personality leaves no doubt in my mind they deserve this award.
Pictogram plus.png  Coming into this massive venture that is the TF Wiki, regardless of experience on other wikis, I experienced near crippling culture shock. It was in no small part the assistance and guidance of the Doc that started me on my path to wiki success. He's a valuable contributor, and his leadership on the Community Strategy project has helped me through many a tough game. I heartily recommend the Doc for this honour and privilege.
Pictogram plus.png  Dr. Scaphandre has been doing a great job in the wiki, not only doing ordinary edits, but also helping out a lot of new users, carefully monitoring trivia additions, and of course coordinating the mass update, revision and creation of new strategy pages with the Community Strategy project. I think these contributions are considerable and valuable enough for a nomination.
Pictogram plus.png  Dr. Scaphandre was one of the very first to award me a Wikichievement. He's pretty active towards the talk pages and contributes to the Community Strategy Project. And, boy— he sure knows the difference between good and bad trivia. He is also a pretty friendly guy, and he has been a great help to new users, helping them understand how the Wiki works. He may not be a translator, but in my opinion, he deserves the the shiny cap for the work he have done, so far.
Pictogram plus.png  Since now he's a staff member, I'll move every staff activity to the side and only look at the normal job. He's the one who noticed about bad quality edits on Trivia section. Also he's the one that always has the idea for new stuffs, such as created Template:Removed content for the contents that were added and already get removed. I think this guy did the work hard enough to deserve it.

Jjin3826 Koira 2015-10-23 2016-09-11 Pictogram plus.png  Jjin3826 have been editing and translating like everyday on /ko. I don't understand korean but I think that Jjin3826 deserves a sparkly cap.


Originally I was for Jjin receiving a Wiki Cap, as he's the only one working for the Korean wiki and has done so much for it. However after further consideration I'm changing my nomination from positive to neutral. His recent translations have been questionable at best and he never takes his time with them, constantly flooding the recent changes log with the littlest of changes. (Unmarked as minor edits no less.) He could easily change this habit of his, but until then, I don't think it's his time yet.

2016-07-29 2016-09-18 Pictogram plus.png  Since Faghetti started his career in February, he was highly active all through (except for a short exam phase), he contributes to the Danish section shoots out lots of translation on a daily basis. Not only small articles like item pages but also >10k bytes articles are totally normal for this guy. In the short time he is here he already translated more than some Wiki Cap owners had in their entire time here.
I already asked a Danish sts mod to review his translations, after his review he gave a quite positive feedback, quotes from the correspondence were "overall I think he's the best Danish TF2 wiki translator" and "he seems to be really into it and does surprisingly well considering what I've seen from certain other Danish users" (whole correspondence).
In the TF wiki community Faghetti is heavily active in tf wiki community, always on the irc when he's translating, (which is often, see User:TidB/IRC for reference), to help people and stay in contact with others for coordination. In that context he also shows great cooperation with another Danish translator, Wiki Pan, with which together he contributed to currently over 18% of translation progress since Faghetti joined here.


Pictogram plus.png  Faghetti is one of those few translators who just push it to the next level. Almost every day he's spamming the Recent change log with new translations, which is actually a good thing. Together we have brought life to the Danish section of the Wiki again, and his translations are indeed in good quality, too. Even though he's a translator, he still help the English section with other things, such as outdated pages, missing content, or just by guiding new editors in the IRC. Last but not least; he's one of the greatest translation partners out there... if you're a Dane, of course. :3

2016-09-18 2017-01-07 Pictogram plus.png  Is staff. Has shown organizational prowess. Translator to boot.
Pictogram plus.png  The reasons for getting a Wiki-cap can be aplenty: You can be a brilliant translator, excellent picture creator, extravagant video-maker or a code-wizard. Nikno falls in a very special category, for not only has he changed the German side of the wiki with excellent translations, but he has also left a permanent mark on the wiki as a whole, and I'm not only referering to his pictures. Even before Nikno became a mod, he made sure the wiki wouldn't wither into obscurity; he helped revive what had been dead for quite some time, and make way for a new system that would benefit everyone. And if that wasn't enough -because it isn't- he is also extremely helpful, friendly and quick to help everyone who might need it. With all this in my mind, I support a wiki-cap-wearing Nikno all the way. Huzzah!


Pictogram plus.png  Nikno has been with the wiki for years in the shadows doing his best to help the other editors to improve the site. With his dedication, he's risen to the ranks of a moderator, helping the wiki in the behind the scenes. He's also a translator for the German wiki with big translations, also helping other translators. He has been a big help, and his help should not go unrewarded.
Pictogram info.png  You shall not be judged by friends and family, but by what your enemies say about you.
Pictogram plus.png  I don't like Niknos style of "corrected" in the summary, cause it leads to the assumption that other editors make graveous errors, but more often it is something tiny, BUT i still love his pinpoint sharpshooter-like accurate work on the wiki. He finds everything that could be wrong with a single glance. He looks at an article as a whole and doesn't get lost in obscure meanings or odd long sentences which makes only sense if you got a doctor in something. He gets a clear picture out with his wording of sentences, so that people not only understand it but thrive to do a better job. He has a very good structure and he is always there for you if you got something that is important, like if Bratwurst is better then Pizza or not(bad example). If he isn't an absolute candiate for a nomination, i wouldn't even bother writing this, cause it would be a waste on a person i don't like at all, but I respect him a lot.
Pictogram plus.png  Very good and productive translator, especialy during the last few months. Also very active in IRC as far as I can tell; whenever I look at the chat logs, I see his name all over the place. Welcoming new users, always being helpful, creating and uploading images, moderating the wiki = a great contributor who definitely deserves the cap :)


Pictogram plus.png  I know that Nikno has been contributing for quite some years now, but his activity this year just beats them all together. Nikno is that kind of guy that takes the initiative to really get something running; he's always super helpful and friendly, and also takes the time to contact STS mods to review other translators. However, taking out some of the staff activity, he has also been making a good amount of translations for the German section, as well as painted variants. He's active almost everyday on the wiki and IRC, always trying to improve the wiki as best as he can. Nikno definitely deserves the shiny cap.


Pictogram plus.png  Nikno is very friendly and gladly helps anyone who asks. He's has a lot of experience and dedication to what he does. He does so much for the wiki, and has always been diligent. This man definitely deserves the cap for what all he does for the wiki.


Pictogram plus.png  From the first day of my wiki days to present, he helped me so much, he taught me most of the wiki language, helped in most of the cases, and he was really friendly while doing all of this. Not just in personal stuff, he helped in general stuff, and he is really fast though, also he is active in IRC most of the time. To make long story short, he really deserves that cap. (He even helped in STS cases, nothing much to say.)


Pictogram plus.png  Nikno was one of the first people (along with Faghetti) to say "hello" to me on my first visit to IRC, and while it was apparent that he was nice, I didn't speak to him much. Even so, Nikno has been surprisingly quick and helpful, leaving encouragement on people's talk pages (including me, regarding my strategy project), and he'd jump to giving me advice if I left a question on IRC; this is despite me not being active on IRC, and not asking for him specifically... its all his own initiative. Recently I also saw this man's patience, since he even took the time to check a template page to fix an error I was stuck with, then left me with a smiley emoticon and a "no problem". Aww. Overall, he's been very courteous and friendly to many of us, and its obvious that he's extremely dependable. To word it like what he left me once: *Recognition for Nickno's work*. Enjoy that cap!


Pictogram plus.png  Nilno Deserves the cap beacuse he is like the best translator i ever saw and he also helps alot of people in the IRC So i 100% think's he deserve's it. Also a good memer on the IRC. And he greets users with pretty verbose write-ups. Otherwise, just look above. And he's an actually active mod.


Pictogram plus.png  Friendly guy, who can help you always. A lot of contributions: images, translations. Also he is patrolling and active IRC user.

2016-09-10 2017-01-16 Pictogram plus.png  MarioMaster2008 has had quite the history on the wiki. His main job has been uploading images of painted variants and styles, as well as other important images. He has also been quick to update templates and create new pages extremely quickly. His talents should not go unnoticed anymore, and I believe it's his time to receive a Wiki Cap.
Pictogram plus.png  A lot of contribution, and useful wiki's images.


Pictogram plus.png  I'll be honest, now that I've realized how long and tedious it is to make and upload media and pictures onto the wiki, MarioMaster2008 deserves some recognition. Check his contributions - that's a crazy amount of work done for images. He basically got every single painted cosmetic for Smissmas 2016 done a few days after the update launched while me and some others were busy with the text parts of each page. Plus, he does know how to work with templates very well and I do see him name very often on the recent changes page, so... come on, we have a hard worker here! He deserves it.

2017-05-18 2017-11-09 Pictogram plus.png  Veteran tf2 wiki, huge contribution, friendly guy, digger of useful images. At a minimum, he tried very hard for the community, perfectly coping with their work.

Pictogram plus.png  Very kind, friendly, hardworking guy, translated over 50% (!) of TF2 Wiki to Danish, spent a lot of his time on TF2 Wiki. Also, makes A LOT of useful contributions.
Pictogram plus.png  As I started to Korean translation in January of this year, I often looked at the Recent Changes page. Most of the translation contributions were from Wiki Pan.
Pictogram plus.png  Because of his last nomination I was afraid to back up Wiki Pan in fear of it being too soon and everything ending up akward like last time; it was horrible, and I do not want to repeat that mistake. But now I have to pay my respect for Wiki Pan: my long time translation partner in crime around these parts. Let's start with his translations which ended up being his undoing last time. After the last decline he went back and fixed a lot of his early translations, which, admittablely, were some of his more grammatically questionable pages, and as time went on he became a lot better at translation in general. I recently got in contact with Alex (one of the danish STS mods) who both appreciates his translation work on the STS and his newer work on this site. One of his comments were: " Det er næsten som om han er en ny person med den forskel, der er. Han har min anbefaling." (Trans: It is almost like he is an entirely different person with the improvements from last time. He has my recommendation). So as far as translations goes I would say he is in the clear. I did notice some grammatical errors looking through his most recent page translations, but nothing serious and he is also fast to correct the mistakes I make whenever they should appear (which isn't too often - fortunately) so it is only fair for me to have his back when he makes mistakes, too (even if more frequent). Other than that he has used a lot of his time on adding new pictures to various pages which he has done dutifully and IRC spammingly for quite some time. Here are some examples of his good work: this, this and lastly this. He also frequently updates templates, something I am fond of. Lastly I want to talk about him as a person. Wiki Pan was one of the first "faces" I got into contact with on the Wiki and I still remember writing hi to him shortly after I began my "career" on the Wiki. That might have been a long time ago, but to this day he is still as friendly and helpful as back then. He is also a frequent IRC user so you can easily get into contact with him if needed. I can't think of anything else to say.... other than Wiki Pan - stay awesome!
Pictogram plus.png  I nominated him a long time ago thinking he was ready for the Cap, but then there was some issues with his translations the last time he was put up. However his translations are no longer an issue as they have massively improved. As an added bonus, he's also been doing a lot of other work around the wiki, like I have. This time, he is fully ready to receive a Wiki Cap.
Pictogram plus.png  I never see someone deals with more than a type of jobs. Updating images, pages, even translating or deals with low quality edits. I think this guy has enough work with enough tears and blood spilled for this shiny cap.
Pictogram plus.png  Wiki Pan has always been very helpful and has even helped out with cosmetic images as well as doing translations. He has even started doing some great 3D image work too! A very hard working wiki member and a very friendly person too :3

2017-10-21 2018-06-30 Pictogram plus.png  Mikado282 is one of those silent contributors who does a lot for the wiki without being noticed. They have created so many helpful pages and updated many pages that needed help, and are also very handy with other users when they need help. Besides big updates, Mikado282 also helps with images from time to time.

Pictogram plus.png  Mikado's been very helpful to both the Wiki and I. He also does great article overhauls, especially for technical details, that are of excellent quality with only the fewest and most minor of typos. 'Fact, I'd say he's pretty much the main technical guy of the TF2 Wiki right now for in-game technical details.
Pictogram plus.png  I am still relatively new, but from what I've scanned of his plethora of quality edits, Mikado seems quite dedicated to improving the Wiki with good content. Honestly, the calibre of his efforts easily could wrestle with a Wikipedia moderator's from my long experience there. It seems he truly loves the Wiki and TF2 itself and I would gladly support what he deserves.
Pictogram plus.png  Quite an active editor - he's pretty much a regular in that regard, regularly adds edits; as for their quality, I have to say that his articles/additions are well-written and there's no issue with them - as a translator, I can also say that I don't have any difficulty with translating his stuff, which should say something. Mikado's work ranges from adding pictures (for maps, as an example), overhauling/adding articles and minor fixes/additions, that just improve the page's quality. Honorable mention is that he's done a lot of those edits, and has been on the wiki for a long time - not an argument in itself, but worth mentioning.

2019-03-15 2019-04-14 Pictogram plus.png  (Well, well, well. I've been looking into Vasya's contributions for a while now, and I do believe that the time for a nomination has finally come. Vasya's most beneficial and most contributed area was in creating images. He has a great knowledge on Half-Life Model Viewer, and knows what he is doing. He, what I believe, first started creating tons, tons of missing or outdated 3D images for the 3D Images Project, when I mean tons, I really mean it. He also has worked on a diverse array of first-person view pictures, and has ever since been uploading Paint Variant Table images that are missing, or require an update (the item in question got updated, or the current images on the Wiki doesn't meet some standards). You can see all his imagery work here, not only you'll notice how many he has uploaded, but how great they look too, there's quality on each and every item on that page. As in text form, he has contributed in a lot of pages and subpages, removing unnecessary tags from subpages, as well fixing typos, keeping things updated (on "Class weapons (competitive)" sections, for example), of course, he also made proper changes for his new 3D images as well, all done by himself. And, finally, he also does some edits across different languages as well, mostly fixing universal things. I believe this user should receive a Cap, and for me, he has all the privilege to wear one (if eventually he receives it), this guy is just amazing on what he does, his image contributions were really, really important for all this Wiki, especially how old and outdated things were before he joined us.)


Pictogram plus.png  (Vasya truly shines in the 3d imagery and painted cosmetic images, Vasya is respectful and updated the All-Father after I put a disclaimer that the Classic style images are outdated, he has immensely helped the Wiki with these and does deserve the cap in my opinion.)
Pictogram plus.png  [Vasya has done tons of useful painted variants (As is clearly visible in the IRC, when he spams the entire channel with his uploads). I see him spamming the channel with the new cosmetics whenever there's a new update that adds stuff. He was willing to help me with setting up HLMV for making images. He's always been friendly and helping me out if I ever needed help.]
Pictogram plus.png  (Well, I am not surprised he's here that fast. The amount of high quality painted pictures Vasya has done is ridiculous. Everything was outdated and most of the cosmetics didn't even have any painted pictures in the first place! Same with the 3D project, this was close to dead and he resurrected it and finished the job. I also want to thank him so much for the file uploader (even if Tark ported it over to python 3, cheers!). It have saved a ton of work when uploading a high amount of pictures. Like Grampa said, he's a very friendly person and helps if we got any questions.)
Pictogram plus.png  No idea why everyone is using parentheses... must be some new wiki craze I missed... well, anyways, my voice probably won't make or break a 4-0 vote, but I thought I'd show some support when its due. When collecting a bunch of information into a single place for everyone to read and enjoy, the visual aspect can't neither be ignored nor understated in its importance. Videos, pictures, templates and words all need to come together for the ultimate user friendly experience, but they are not all equally easy to pick up so now a days it's rare to see new users picking up the paint brush instead of the typewriter (me included, I was no better, lol), but when there is a lack in work force a few people will often step up to do the rest. Which brings us to today's user: VasyaTheMediaWizard. This guy was basically a rain cloud in the media drought the wiki had been suffering from for some time. I mean, his IRC spam was regular enough for him to make memes about it on his talk page. If that is not amazing enough then just look at this page - I honestly think it speaks for itself. So yeah, thank you, Vasya, for your amazing work and dedication, and I hope you'll stick with us after we have taped shiny, fake sparkles to your head.
Pictogram plus.png  I have hesitated commenting on Vasya's nomination only because I am unqualified to remark on Painted variants images. I have only ever looked at Painted variants once, to paint one of my hats. I patrol English only Recent Changes, which means unfortunately I really pretty much completely missed out on the massive body of Vasya's work. That said, it is clear that his images are impressing those that do know. it does touch me the reports of completing long-neglected image sectors. .... So, to what I can talk about: limited to English only Recent Changes, I have been pleased enough with Vasya's participation; in addition to the massive image content, Vasya (among others) contributes to the increased English language collaboration and is active, positive, and helpful. Never a problem. Always a pleasure.

2019-04-23 2019-08-24 Pictogram plus.png  Danio has been on the wiki since 2014, during this time he has made tons of edits to tons of /pl and English pages.

These edits include things like translating entire pages, minor corrections, updates to pages, etc. He has helped me with stuff relating to the wiki, and I have seen him help others too. He has a genuine interest in the wiki and improving it, this is supported by the fact that he's been here for very long and makes edits on a daily basis These are the reasons I believe he should get a wiki cap.
Pictogram plus.png  Danio has been consistent in his edits - both when it comes to their quality, and I can tell that; not to mention that he's in STS, so that quality is well, verified. Those edits vary from creating patch pages, fixing translation quality (which I can thank Danio for doing - helped me improve my own translations, honestly) and just maintenence work over the Polish wiki specifically. He does work outside that as well. He's been here for years and has done a lot of work, which, as Swood has said, shows that he's devoted to working on Wiki. I support him getting the hat.
Pictogram plus.png  To be honest, I'm quite surprised that he hasn't been nominated earlier. Danio has been here for a very long time, close to 4 or 5 years soon, I think? He has been doing tons, and I mean tons of translations and maintenance edits on the Polish Wiki. I can't confirm the quality of them myself as I don't speak Polish, but he is a member of the Steam Translation Server, meaning that his translations must be of high quality. Not only has he been working on the Polish pages, he has been doing tons of edits on our English pages aswell - adding information, patrolling recent changes, and some overall maintenance work. Although edit count is not a notable factor in here, it would be worth mentioning that he is, at the moment of writing this, 31st in the list of users with the most edits. Definitely a regular on the IRC, has a community-minded attitude, and is often seen helping out both new and old editors. I absolutely support him getting the shiny hat.
Pictogram plus.png  Yep. Huge amount of quality contribution! I appreciate the disciplined synchronization of pl/en work. When patrolling changes, I have long skipped Danio's edits, except when I want to learn something.
Pictogram plus.png  The amount of work Danio/Denied has done for the /pl part of the wiki these past years is amazing. Everything from fixing grammar to making pages, he has done this on and off for a long time now. Never stopped. I believe he deserve the cap. He's devoted and is also a STS member, which makes me believe his changes are in high quality - even if I can't understand a single word.

2019-08-27 2019-09-14 Pictogram plus.png  The Brazilian Portuguese side of the wiki has a high percentage of translation progress, and in recent times keeping this up has been in no small part due to BrazilianNut's efforts. Both translating pages for new additions or helping with the sempiternal task of updating the many old articles, they are a great assistance, with consistent translation and pretty impeccable grammar that I would say could be as good as STS level lately. Also taking into account that I've seen them in the wiki for a while (starting in early 2017), I strongly believe they should be our next Brazilian recipient of a cap.


Pictogram plus.png  Very good /pt-br lad, considering that I actually know the language this time, I can analyze it more, and BrazilianNut, in a Nutshell, does great translations for pages, making new translations for new cosmetics (all for Summer Pack 2019 and Scream Fortress 2018), making sure to keep pages updated (updating outdated pages, to reflect with changes on the English page), and he also does general changes to English pages (such as disambiguation/redirect pages). Overall, I think he should and is ready to receive his cap, his contributors has been as good as previous /pt-br editors from the past.
Pictogram plus.png  I won't be able to comment much here since their contributions are almost exclusively translations for a language that I don't speak, but as Gabrielwoj already said, they have done tons of consistent translations at large quantities. Haven't seen him around on IRC and I only patrol Recent Changes for English, Finnish, and Norwegian, so they are kind of like a ghost to me - a silent little ghost that flies around the Wiki, updating and adding translations all around the Brazilian Portugese parts :D

2019-08-27 2019-09-14 Pictogram plus.png  Thedop may not be active on the wiki itself, but he has made a total of 62 demonstrations now and is still making more. He has made around 10 or so thumbnails for demonstrations as well as a few translations for things. He has helped me personally with demonstrations, and without him I wouldn't have been able to do it. On top of this, he also runs the official channel for the wiki. He is not seen on the IRC, so his work goes mostly unseen by the average user. I believe he deserves the cap for these reasons.


Pictogram plus.png  Thedop has created lots of demonstration. Like really big ammount of them. All high quality. Despite all of this user isnt active on IRC so his work is most unseen. Even I didnt knew about him until someone (cough GrampaSwood) told me about him. I think he deserves cap for such an effort.
Pictogram plus.png  Thedop's main specialty or focus of his work is mainly images and demonstration videos. Those things not only require an extra effort, but also have to be of good quality, which they are and are daily added/uploaded onto TF2Wiki or its youtube channel. Other than that he has some work done in terms of translatins - mainly item pages and such, on which I cannot comment but may be good to note.
Pictogram plus.png  Thedop doesn't participate in the IRC channel, and as such, their contributions may at first go unnoticed to a lot of users. However, they have created tons of demonstration videos, added and updated French translations for new and old items alike (the quality of which I sadly can't assess), created a bunch of class gallery images, and quite a lot of painted variants. They started on the Wiki as early as 2012, so technically one could say that they have been here for close to 7 years, albeit with breaks in 2013 and 2016.

Pictogram plus.png  When i first met him on IRC, I thought Swood was a moderator (no joking). GrampaSwood is one of most active wiki users, that helped me many times. Because of him I know how to properly use this page. Swood is also probably always monitoring recent changes and I know that for sure, because he is the person that undod my edits the most (sometimes I make stupid mistakes 😔). He also is currently the most (and only probably) valuable person that keeps /nl alive. Heck, he even makes stuff for english wiki too (some demonstrations, voice line page and ofc minor changes). Basically Swood is very helpfull guy that patrols wiki, keeps /nl alive, checks if bugs are possible to do and makes and fixes new pages on english wiki. I'm suprised that he hasnt been nominated before.
Pictogram plus.png  Swood's work is well, various. That is he takes up a lot of different tasks, some of which are - Translations, demonstrations (although that's a fairly new addition, and he just got his first one approved), small corrections, new addition to the pages or adding missing images. While I cannot speak for quality of translations (although he is in STS, which does make me trust in his ability to translate), I can speak for quality of his smaller additions or corrections as well as the image work he has done up to this point. He's been here since around a year or so with a history of more or less consistent editing, which is also a positive thing to note.
Pictogram plus.png  Very good editor that focuses on small edits, such as grammar, punctuation, consistency, add/removing "To-Dos" and others (not only for English pages, but for a variety of different languages). Also does translation to /nl pages. He's always checking the Recent Changes page, and whenever there is something new added, he makes sure to correct a few words or two, or in case of "invalid" contributions, he makes sure to revert those and explain to the user who added those on their talkpages. He's also an image creator and he has been ever since adding "First-Person View" images for a variety of weapons, such as Festivized and Australium weapons. He's also pretty nice and it's always willing to learn when he asks something for me.
Pictogram plus.png  A jack of all trades, I should say. Long-time Dutch translator, image creator (mostly first-person views and class galleries that I know of), weapon demonstration videos, minor corrections, testing bugs to see if they should be removed from Wiki pages, and much more. He definitely participates heavily in the Team Fortress Wiki community, is on IRC often and participates in talkpage discussions a lot. Monitors Recent Changes like a machine, beating me in reverting vandalism and spam edits, because my eastern bloc internet can't load the pages fast enough, hue. I can't comment on his translations much because I don't speak Dutch, but being in the Steam Translation Server is a sign that he knows what he's doing. Absolutely deserves the sparkling hat in my opinion.
Pictogram plus.png  Dear Swood answered all my questions enthusiastically(I believe he has helped many other people as well), and I can say this indirectly helped the translation of simplified Chinese a lot. Also, I always find his avatar when I watch demonstration videos recently. Although his account history isn't as long as many senior contributors, but I do believe it wouldn't be a matter to award someone who will make better and richer contributions for sure in the future.

2011-08-22 2011-09-11 ● Been a big help on finishing off the painted images recently, seems to do a lot of work on the Wiki's images and he's been a long-time contributor.
Does great work to fix what needs to be done, instead of adding in new problems. Really great contributor.
Mr. Magoolachub (Chub) has demonstrated a strong desire to forward the efforts of the Wiki project through his involvement in fixing the Wiki Cap gallery, helping round-off the painted item preview galleries, and uploading fixed and generally better versions of existing images. Chub has also shown a strong desire to tackle new challenges as they face him, helping pioneer the 3D item image preview work with Moussekateer; his willingness to help others learn the Source SDK, with particular focus on modelling, has earned him the status, at least in my opinion, of a valuable Wiki contributor. As arbitrary as this may sound, I feel that others also share in my assessment of him. I wish Chub the best of luck in obtaining the coveted, and apparently cursed, Wiki Cap.

● Amazing artist, always putting working to galleries and images.
● Special kudos for being the one to finally pull the Wiki Cap gallery together.
Very active on the irc, very friendly, and does great HLMV work for hat and gallery pages.
● Fantastic Artwork and uses the IRC Channel on a regular basis.
Evaldas has consistently uploaded high quality images for the Wiki, fixing old images and even taking user requests or 'gifting' well-posed images for user articles. While lacking what many would consider 'traditional' edits in the form of article writing or fixing, Evaldas has demonstrated a strong commitment to the Wiki project and is an easily approachable and friendly character, willing to help others learn the intricacies of Valve's broken tools. I would be proud to have him represent the Wiki via a Cap.
Helps out a lot around the wiki, helped me with several problems I was having with HLMV and is just generally an all around nice person.

T-Wayne shows much interest and much determination to both finish and better the german wiki, being one of the only 3 editors in the language he has done many great jobs and gotten many pages for the wiki done. T-Wayne also displays his desire to mix with the community by getting involved in chats and being a regular on the irc. Overall T-Wayne has always displayed a positive attitude and has always jumped to any job he is offered.
● Has been of help quite some times on the IRC channel when i was in need of more details about how a certain page or template should get treated.
● As far as I can tell he's done a great job so far on the German wiki pages, and I have seen him very often on the IRC. He often participates in wiki activities, and is very active in the wiki. Once I got scammed and he replaced my lost item, which was incredibly nice of him. He is very determined to help the wiki anyway he can, and for that I would be proud to have him represent the wiki with a cap.

2011-10-13 2011-10-30 RagnarHomsar (henceforth Ragnar due to my laziness) signed up for the wiki in November 2010, has been an active contributor from the 11th of August 2011 and since then has only become an increasingly excellent contributor. I believe Ragnar should be awarded a Wiki Cap primarily for two reasons, the first of which being his demonstrated ability to contribute to a very high standard in multiple areas of the wiki. For example, take his edit on the Community Engineer strategy page, that by itself is a huge edit. He saw that it was marked for cleanup, and I'll be damned if he didn't go through and clean up nearly that whole damn thing. He didn't just do a little and leave the rest, he slogged through the whole article and did a thoroughly good cleanup.

Take a gander at one of his many fine images, as an editor who works primarily with images myself I have personal experience with the amount of care Ragnar will put in to each and every image he takes, Ragnar is not the type of person to go "oh, well that looks good enough I guess" and then leave it at that. On countless occasions Ragnar has asked for public opinions on his images over IRC to check that he hasn't left any corner unturned, and will often lament over clipping issues, he won't just accept that it clips horrifically and take the picture anyway, he will do the best he can to change the pose or edit the image so that the clipping issue can be improved. As a result, the images he uploads to the wiki are of a very high quality.

Ragnar, as well as being very active on the IRC and easy to talk to, will often contribute to discussions on the wiki, demonstrating his desire to improve the wiki and ability to work as a group with the rest of the wiki, here's a topic that he started for example (and got a positive reaction to).

Ragnar, while not participating in the weapons portion of the 3D models project, has been active in the testing of the hats portion and I can only assume will be doing 3D hats along with the rest of the 3D models team once the last few issues with the scripts are worked out. He has also had some involvement with the Tips Revision/Suggestions project, as well as some involvement with other projects.

The second reason I believe Ragnar should be awarded a cap is his noticeable improvement over time, highlighting his commitment and dedication to being an excellent contributor. To highlight my point, compare this image, one of the first he uploaded, to this one, a newer image and a personal favourite of mine. The first image has some noticeable issues, the reflective putty face, some less than amazing cutting and a kinda weird facial flex (please don't hurt me scout), some of his other early images have other quality issues (cropping, transparency etc, might want to have a look at some of your older stuff Ragnar :P). When compared to the newer image, it just blows the old images out of the water. The lighting is perfect, the pose is visually interesting, the facial flex is done nicely, the angle is amazing and the hat is shown off beautifully, much like most all of his recent images. Over time Ragnar has only become a better and better contributor and this is reflected in his edits.

For these two primary reasons (as well as some smaller ones, like his willingness to go the extra mile) I believe that Ragnar should be considered for a Wiki Cap, and I sincerely hope he receives one.

RagnarHomsar has been basically a god of photography ever since he signed up in October. His work has always been top-of-the-line and that Engineer strategy page he almost completely redid was a gigantic edit and was very beneficial to the state of the wiki. I would be honored to have Ragnar represent the wiki with a Cap.

Takes amazing images and always works hard to keep the quality of those images very high. His poses are very expressive and fun, and lead to a very pretty looking wiki. He also was a major contributor the tip revision project, even if that never quite took off as intended. Ragnar is an long time contributor to the Wiki and I believe he deserves a Wiki Cap.

RagnarHomsar is not JUST a god of photography, as stated above. He is also a kindly person who participates in the IRC and UGC Tournament well, and helps other people customize their userpages by making pictures for them; I've got at least four myself. He also helped remove quite a bit of useless junk on the community strategy pages; his Engineer and Medic ones are particularly noteworthy. The 3D Images he worked on are also particularly useful to the Wiki, and he shows that he's quite fun enough to work with.

2011-10-13 2011-10-30 Fyahweather has a count on over 1700 edits and has been on the Wiki for over a year and a month. He has been greeting several users and beeing a positive user, a important Wiki Trivia Executioner, disabled alot of red links, focusing on correct linking on several articles, grammar fixings and more. He have been seen on the IRC sometimes and when he is talking, he spreads joy and can be a real great person to talk to about almost everything. He leaves a couple of messages to users who have recent entered the Wiki or just to inform others about stuff.

This is a true cooperative user and has a burning desire to maintain balance in the Wiki.
Holy shit you are telling me Fyahweather DOESN'T have a Wiki Cap? I've seen this guy everywhere, he's always chipping in to discussions and doing important work and god DAMN has he been doing it for a long time. The only reason I haven't nominated Fyahweather is because I thought he had the darn thing.

As soon as I met Fyahweather I could tell what a friendly, nice, and slightly insane person he was. Great editor, contributes nice and frequently, with good edits. Like I said, great within the community. I dare a single user to find a reason why this awesome slice of person should not have the Wiki Cap.

I literally have not seen ONE bad edit or change from Fyahweather. He's damned near always in the IRC, he's always helpful to those who need it, and he's probably the first person I've met on the Internet who's asked me to do something politely. He's also pointed out things that need some changing around that I've missed (lack of set images over on the Item set page, along with set images that needed massive reworking), and also deserves the title of Trivia Executioner, along with a Wiki Cap.</br>

The man is a bad trivia killing machine. Maybe that means HE'S A ROBOT! Or he's just very good at what he does. But yeah, Fyah's a frequent contributor who does good editing work on the Wiki. He's deserving of his nomination and a cap.

2011-11-25 2011-12-04 Always one of the first to translate missing/new articles into german. Made an excellent job on translating tons of maps into german (and we all know how painful translating maps is). Thanks to him we have 100% of the official maps translated. Is familiar with the "complicated" stuff like the dictionary template etc. Arranges and works cooperative with the other german contributors. Overall, made over 900 edits with a high quality and above average new pages.

He is a very very very very good contributor to the german wiki.He helps new people (like me), to learn the important tricks and other stuff from the wiki, and has overall a good view of important and unimportant articles which needs to be translated. I'm ashamed to say that but he is most of the times the first guy who translates for the german wiki, and has a good way of translating the english articles. My last reason is a mere statemet: We are a few but we are good, i don't want to say that we have only 10 active translator, but we have only, picard, sackzement, t-wayne, and thedoctor. That's not a reason but a consideration to you guys about what he does and all of us, we have a lot of viewer but not so much translator. He would have voted for Obama: Change!!! Hope!!
I believe T-Wayne deserves the cap due to his many contributions to the slowly progressing but highly demanded german section of the wiki.

2011-11-26 2011-12-04 There is a lot I can say about Evaldas. So I'll start from the beginning. Evaldas is an excellent contributor this grand base of TF2-based knowledge. Although he doesn't contribute in the most traditional way, one doesn't have to go far to see what he has done for this Wiki, visually speaking. While he has come under some controversy regarding uploading images that didn't need replacing, one cannot say that his quality of work isn't far better than most and doesn't deserve to be showcased on all pages, thus, in my opinion, making the previous point moot. Secondly, Evaldas is undeniably a wonderful person. He is constantly smiling, at least virtually, and is always a pleasure to speak to. He is constantly seen on the IRC and is a calm approachable person; should one have any questions regarding his area of professions (that being HLMV, Source SDK and Images). Truly, if one is deserving of a Wiki Cap it is unequivocally Evaldas himself, not only for his appetence and strong work ethic toward improving the Wiki, in his own ways, but also for being the kind and generous person we all know and love.

Seconding that I don't think my previous complaint about image replacement should be in any way held against Evaldas. Like I said before, he makes great images for the wiki at a consistently high standard and is also a very nice person, that's what he should be judged on.
Same as before. My reason can be found in the archive of past nominations (below).
Just take a look at Evaldas's contributions. He's uploaded a huge amount of really great images for the Wiki, and spent a lot of time adding them to their respective pages. It takes a certain type of person to have not just the patience, but also the artistic talent to take pictures like this, this and this. Evaldas is also a genuinely great character, and has helped several users - including me - with many aspects of imaging, from getting Source SDK installed, to fixing minor glitches with imaging software. He's helpful, friendly, and a high quality contributor. What more can you ask for?
Evaldas is not your average image creator. He's also one of the kindest editors I've met, always cheerful and willing to oblige. He participates heavily on the IRC, giving everyone compliments and pats on the back. His images are very high quality at a very consistent level. I find that Evaldas' work towards the Wiki has been very beneficial and nominate him to the pinnacle of wikidom.
He does some of the best images I've seen, he's always working hard to improve the existing wiki content, and is also a really nice guy, always worrying about others and trying to help and cheer them up. He even helped me learn how wiki code works when I was clueless. He has shown great commitment for a long time.
Very kind fellow, usually see them in Source SDK making new and improved images for the wiki. No jaggies on this front! Re-Nomination.
A number of veterans on this wiki have trouble being friendly and approachable, but that's something you know that you never have to worry about with Evaldas. Exceptionally kind, exceptionally talented, and just so darn cute to boot.
Evaldas has been doing some quality work (and particulary with that SDK tool). While he's also very kind, he's also very present on the IRC channel and deserves to be rewarded.

Helps significantly with our Wiki's photos, including additions and improvements. Displays a kind and helpful demeanor to everyone, and frequently chats in the IRC.

Same as before. My reason can be found in the archive of past nominations (below).
Lots of good image uploads, and weapon demonstrations are always highly sought after here. His list of wikichievments sort of speaks for itself, in my opinion.
Doesn't neglect older, less looked at hats such as older hats that need galleries and new images. He's a great asset to the Wiki.
Magoolachub's got this vibe to him that I can only describe as a valor to improve the wiki. Doesn't exactly makes sense, but it feels right. Videos, photos, damn impressive 3D models... this guy.

2011-11-29 2012-01-08 ? Shows an extraordinary amount of enthusiasm for the wiki and Team Fortress in general. Goes above and beyond what is usually expected; investigated paint splotches and the paint system, and published his results; even though they weren't used, they could have been and may be useful for further reference. Joined on November 17th, 2010, and since then has made several key renovations of major pages; Advanced Weaponiser being one of them, and hundreds of minor edits that could be considered noteworthy. When Dr Grordbort came crashing into TF2, he was one of the first to implement the new weapons onto the wiki, apparently neglecting to sleep. Though people sometimes get the wrong end of the stick with him, and he has been known to lose his temper, he is generally a nice person to talk to and one of the people who can fluently understand wiki formatting and therefore pick up on the mistakes of others. Said that "it'd be nice to be acknowledged for the amount of work I cram into the short amount of free time I have". Well, this is my official acknowledgement; even if he doesn't get a Wiki Cap, I'd like him to know his work is appreciated.

? In case you happen to run into his not-so-friendly side, you most likely have yourself to blame. His temper doesn't show up often, but when it does, he has clear, good reasons as to why he disagrees with the stubborn.
? He's an excellent member of the wiki, helpful, friendly and hard working. He really deserves it. He understands what should and shouldn't be done on the wiki.

2011-12-28 2012-01-22 TheDoctor has been a significant help on the german Wiki pages in the past. He is a member on the TF2Wiki since June 2011 and up until now, he has reached an edit count of 1087 [[4]]. We are not that many translators in the german wiki, not as much as you would expect us to be. Worth mentioning about his work is his ability to work together with others and his open-minded attidute, where he is open to wait for decisions and discuss stuff out, rather than being stubborn and do it his way. He's only striving for the best so far. TheDoctor has been creating a handful of community match-up pages and, while others of us were either absent or on vacation while Christmas, taken care of the Christmas 2011 Update, almost all alone as far as I saw. That's a pain in the butt of work for a man alone to handle. TheDoctor has, since November, been regularily visiting the IRC and created contacts between other translators and himself. He is also able to edit Templates, create anchor links and many other stuff! I mean, just take a look at his contributions, this guy must've skipped Christmas O.o!!!. For all his devotion and contribution and struggling and else and stuff, I do believe he is worth being rewarded with a Cap by now. He undoubtly is one of the most hardworking german translators.

TheDoctor is an amazing Wiki editor who has contributed large amounts to the German Wiki. Not only that but he is also an amazing guy to talk with and he's a regular on the IRC channel, always in for some casual talk all the whilst making (be it big or minor) edits. He has helped me aswell and I am grateful for that. His editing also extends to the Dutch wiki, always keeping an eye out for possible bad links/weird edits etc. He is just a great contributor that definately deserves a reward for his work!

Welcome to the wiki. All arguments said. He earned himself the right to be nominated.

He is a very active Russian translator, he also greeted alot of people and helped them out right away (including me) by telling them how to improve or the style of translating, I think Pin deserves to have a wiki cap

2012-01-18 2012-05-20 Warlike, in a nutshell, this user has contributed to one of THE most out of date parts of the wiki. He contributes to community discussion and is easy to approach. Warlike has shown a strong desire to help better the dutch wiki for users to read and has taken into consideration a lot when translating. Warlike I believe, deserves the cap for his major contribution and overhaul to the dutch wiki, not only that but he is a very kind person.

Warlike is the most active dutch translator(okay there are only 2, still the point stands...), he improves after each edit. He uses his acquired knowledge to make the dutch articles reliable and long lasting(use of good templates(item name etc.). He has already done >XXXX edits, and most of them are creating new (translation) pages. He get's his first year citizen medal for living in wikitopia very soon, so let's get him a little reward. Also he listened to everything i told him and knew, and he didn't complained :) .
What can I say? Warlike has made and fixed many Dutch articles on his own, due to the absence of Dutch translators until assistance on his workfield arrived. He has helped me with several coding issues when I first started contributing to the Dutch Wiki, and notably strifes for a better Dutch TF2 Wiki. If someone silently deserves the Wiki cap, it's certainly him.
Warlike has shown impressive improvements during his time on the Dutch Wiki. While his first edits were not all that great, he rapidly improved and produces high quality Dutch pages nowadays. His rapid pace and enthusiasm allowed him to quickly translate the most important missing pages: weapons, updates and hats. No task is too big for him and for that, he has my support.
Warlike is one of the most helpful wiki user considering he has done a lot of work for Dutch and other langauages for people around the world.Even though he joined near Janurary 2011,he did edit some articles,adding things to it,and fixing up some grammer.He then,realized that the Dutch Section was getting enough work on,so he took the privilege to do it.He was the one to do it and plus,he is one of those people you can count on.Also,he adds strategies or tips on improving gameplay which is really useful and is focused on the Dutch Wiki.Just one little error,he'll fix it before you can say "Team Fortress 2!" He has done a major job in the TF2 wiki and should be rewarded because he is the one that helped me while i was going through problems understanding the other languages on the wiki.Minute by minute,he improves editing and will sooner later become a boss!He is a kind,smart,and active person and should be knowned for his work.Please take consideration and vote for him.

2012-03-13 2012-06-17 In a nutshell, this man really too long wait his own wiki cap and he really deserve it as the one of the best German contributor. He worked hard over 2 month since reviewed on this nominee and I think he made too much good-contributed wiki pages. So let's make his dream come true! :)

TheDoctor is an active regular both on the Wiki and the IRC. Not only do I often see him working on the German pages, I also see him regularly reaching out to new editors and help them. Helpful, friendly and hardworking, I was quite surprised to find out that he didn't have a Wiki Cap yet. Ergo, I am of opinion he deserves a Wiki Cap.

Doctor is a perfect translator, he translates everything that could be translated to German, also he helps new users to find out what to do on the Wiki. Of cource, he deserves a Wiki Cap. :D

Active. Dedicated. Community minded. Those are the three words that come to mind when I think of Doc. He has edited and translated so many German pieces (and as far as I can tell they seem relatively high quality aswell) and is always on the IRC chat to contribute to discussion or help out other people/correct others. They say the third time is a charm...

I've definitely seen TheDoctor around on the IRC quite a lot. He/she/it's an incredibly nice person who is always there to offer advice or give criticism when needed. I've also seen him sending newcomers messages on their talkpages, which is a great touch. All in all I'd say if anyone were to receive a wiki cap, it'd be him/her/it.

As a newcomer to the Tf2 wiki, i was welcomed by TheDoctor. He/she/it was extremely nice to me and above all helpful. TheDoctor gave me suggestions in a nice way, not in a way that had a tone of "im better than you listen to me newcomer".Also i saw the many contributions that TheDoctor has made. TheDoctor is really a community-minded person who deserves the Wiki Cap.

Although I do not follow his contributions to the Wiki due to not having a clue about German, I can tell he has done a lot of valuable additions to the Wiki. TheDoctor has shown to be active and helpful on the IRC and to be someone who deserves an award for his efforts.

I am in the IRC often, and I see him often too. He helped a lot with fixing the Item-sets split bug. He also helped me with learning how to use the Wiki. taught me about invisible titles - A truly good guy that deserves a wiki cap.

Sometimes I didn't know things that was remove by him isn't fit with wiki guideline. I didn't saw him often because I didn't log in too many but I saw him edited most recently and most of his edit are critical change.

TheDoctor is IRC regular, he is active and main or one of the main contributors of the German version of the Wiki, and he edits English pages/has ideas for English pages of the Wiki every now and then. He deserves his cap in my opinion.

Helpful. Friendly. Funny. Efficient. Knows what he's done and what needs to be done. Isn't this enough to be called useful contributor?

For everything above. Nothing else needs to be said.

TheDoctor helped me when I was new to the wiki, he is often in the IRC and he is an active contributor. More reasons above.

About what most of the others said. Helped me on numerous occations A helpful and dedicated person to say the least.

Doc is passionate about his projects to improve the wiki not falling by the wayside. This shows commitment and dedication.

Similar to Xenak, Doc has stood out to me in my 3-or-so-days of being back as a humorous yet hard-working individual who is autonomous and shows great flair towards editing and improving the Wiki. He, too, is almost always seen in the IRC and is a wonderful person to speak to. Another fantastic nomination.

Pictogram minus.png  Does grammar work and is undoing edits. Most is copy+Paste or even less work.

Although I've had slight conflict with him in the past, it does not negate Hinaomi's extremely visible dedication to making the Team Fortress Wiki into a utopia. He prominently looks out for something to edit, and when he catches a problem, he corrects it, no questions asked. Hinaomi works excruciatingly hard to make the wiki a professional, consistent, and polished place. This is impressive, especially due to his lower-end skills of the English language (which I am sure he will improve). There is no intermittency or even the slightest slack in his work. All these things reward more than just a nomination; he has earned my personal respect, and this is the biggest award I can give.

Hinaomi is an excellent editor, restlessly patrolling pages and carefully scrutinizing each reported bug to ensure that the bugs' style and importance are consistent with all the other pages. Hinaomi also adds and removes sections (such as "see also", for example) to a large amount of pages so that the consistency and format of the wiki is equal throughout all the pages. The quality of Hinaomi's edits are top notch, and I believe Hinaomi deserves a Cap for his contributions.

Pictogram minus.png  Hinaomi has always shown a strong urge to undo edits for either illegitimate reasons or because it's easier than properly fixing the edit. Hinaomi has also been very hostile toward other editors many times in the past. I strongly believe he should not be rewarded for this behavior.

2012-06-12 2012-11-04 Flying_Furry is a great contributor of virtually flawless, high-quality images. Whenever we speak, it's readily apparent that his motivation is excellence - always either proud of doing the best job possible, or asking for advice and opinions for improvement. (Getting there, but please provide specific examples, this was already a problem in his initial review. How are his better than the next person's? -Lagg)

Flying_Furry is a great contributor, I like reb have experienced him asking me for advice on how to do various things that he didn't know or was unsure of how to do, so it's obvious he cares about what he puts out to the wiki. Not only that, but he is also a very helpful person, helping me solve a problem with my hlmv that appeared out of nowhere and seemingly for no reason. The solution was equally baffling, so I'm very thankful to him for looking in to that. A great contributor who cares a lot about what he puts in.

Flying_Furry has uploaded many, many Steam Workshop image thumbnails, a project which he undertook entirely himself. I think that shows dedication on his part.

For what it matters, i've been talking to Flying_Furry quite enough lately, and he explained me quite a few wiki-related things i would have prolly took time to find out by myself, apart the fact he has shown to have a pretty good attitude at it, too. So, behavior-wise, i see no problem at all and i gladly nominate him.

2012-08-22 2012-12-16 R4wrz0rz0r, commonly known to the community as rZ, has definitely had his share of mishaps during his time here. That, however, was before. After rZ took and returned from his wiki-break, I've noticed he's acted much differently from how he'd acted earlier. I believe with his helpful and supporting attitude he now possesses the qualities to properly represent the Wiki. His work for the Wiki is also of excellent quality, and his role on the Wiki is a jack of all trades of sorts. You can give rZ any job about anything on the Wiki and he will do it diligently. He does drone work, janitorial work, template work, and he watches the Recent Changes feed keenly and consults with other users on talk pages whether it be asking a question or collaborating with them, among many other jobs. Because of both his positive, helpful attitude and his continuous work for the wiki, I believe rZ would represent the wiki well with a Wiki Cap. (give examples - Lagg)

Pictogram plus.png  rZ definitely had a bit of a tough start, having some issues with various things, but then, something changed in him and he became a damn good editor. Going through his contributions list, it is obvious that he does his best in whatever he does - he constantly fixes and maintains various templates and dictionary's (something a lot of editors don't seem to do!), he checks the recent changes and purges bad edits, does "taskmonkey" edits such as pushing new versions of templates, and so on. He also seems to have a vast amount of knowledge regarding internal Wiki issues, and is willing to answer most people's questions should they need it. In addition, he is almost always seen in the IRC and is very fun to speak to.

Pictogram minus.png  He's the guy that have many conflicts with another users like me. example case: Conflict with Askarmuk about icon images.

2013-03-13 2013-08-31 Pictogram plus.png  I came across this user's edits during my recent attempts to get in to comp TF2. Turns out, he has contributed a lot to that side of the Wiki and it has sadly gone mostly unnoticed. It doesn't stop there, however. December makes edits to articles with no partiality, contributing to maintain a clean, easily-understood environment on this wiki. Please review this user's contributions for Wiki Cap consideration.

Pictogram minus.png  Although December does good work with some of the competitive articles, he is not highly active and has not made any large-scale changes to these pages. The majority of the edits are minor legibility edits or small standardization changes.

Large number of "Abstain" votes, and long review duration, removed from nominations until re-nominated.

2013-12-26 2014-02-15 Pictogram plus.png  As far as I know, he actually have helped much for the Brazilian-Portuguese Wiki. For example, he started with bugs when he came here and had to left the Wiki for a year for personal stuff, but then came back with alot of work and then he translated the Robotic Boogaloo Update. He also Uploads nice good pictures about items. Even if I am not following pt-br pages and neither his translations since I don't understand portuguese, I think he should earn a Wiki Cap, since he is working hard after a 1 year hiatus from the Wiki.

Pictogram plus.png  He always stays in pt-br sections to translate the things that Valve added, even though he's translator, but can do a lot of jobs like class image, category fix, and much more. this is him
Pictogram plus.png  Metroid7 is primarily a pt-br translator, and a dedicated one at that (examples: Sniper_Robot/pt-br, Magic spells/pt-br, Public Enemy/pt-br) As of late, he has been spamming making tons of little consistency edits (examples: 1, 2, 3) and top-notch images (examples: File:Bountiful Bow.png, File:Bozo's Brogues.png, File:Snaggletoothed Stetson.png) All of this combined should qualify him for the shiny hatte.
Pictogram plus.png  Metroid7... his performance amazes me. I feel a warmth inside my heart, because he reminds me that there are angels. He deserves all the recognition he can have! How quickly he translates full item pages, the precision of the images... I would hate to see him not get this hat. Metroid... You are a gift to this wiki! Never stop what you do, Because it is what you do best. Better than most on this wiki! I have many cousins from Brazil. The chances that they have benefit from YOUR edits are there, if they do, that makes their lives easier, which makes mine easier too! You also have rarely to never have demonstrated negative attitude to anyone, on this wiki, at least, you are a great friend, editor, and a awesome person.
Pictogram plus.png  Ever since I joined the TF2 Wiki, most of the translations I see in recent changes have been by Metroid7. He's been a great contributor, and even though I don't speak or read the language he translates, he does a lot for that side of the wiki. He isn't just translating every other page, he works hard to make sure that he translates over half of them. If you don't believe he makes that many useful translating edits, then you should definitely check out this.
Pictogram plus.png  I could go on and on saying good things about metroid, but I'll just say he's just an amazing, quick, and excellent translator and editor that definitely deserves acknowledgement for the things he has done in the Wiki, he's one of the nicest and most humble people I've met on IRC and he has encouraged me and others to make worthy edits and be less shy around other editors. He's a pretty cool guy.
Pictogram minus.png  I have decided to take my time to review Scotty's (aka Metroid7) translations myself. And even though several other users have praised his efforts by the huge amount of work he has done (even though this very page clearly states that "edit count is not relevant to eligibility"), I'm afraid the quality of his translations does not correspond to that. Though, I do not know anything about his other contributions – images, talk page discussions, IRC, etc. –, but I do know that his texts do lack a bit more of revisions, corrections, and dedication. His errors consist mostly of misspellings, grammar incoherencies, and untranslated texts (i.e. terms from the official translation). A few mistakes in some of his pages can be found here (every [!] indicates specially severe errors). I know Scotty is fully committed to contribute to the Wiki, but I feel his translations lack dedication. I hope to see some improvement on his part from now on, mostly on his grammar and orthography – but I don't think he is deserving of the Wiki Cap just yet.

Jew Koira 2015-10-06 2016-08-30 Pictogram plus.png  Well, as you can see, Jew has done a lot work on /fi. 490 translated articles, all are translated with pretty good quality, and only in year.


This user, quite the amount of translations under their hand however activity is kind of on and off. However taking out activity, the translations on the Finnish side of the wiki seem great. Keeping it up to date, though the quantity of translations may be true, the quality is what the kicker is.

STS mod input too uncertain. Vote status made it impossible to proceed fairly this cycle.
Wiki Pan Dr. Scaphandre 2016-08-24 2017-01-16 Pictogram plus.png  I have been closely monitoring Wiki Pan for a while now, and he has been one of the most active and hard working editors on the wiki. He primarily works with the Danish translations, but he also does a lot of helpful English work as well. He's active everyday on the wiki and IRC, always helpful and bringing a smile to everyone's face. His actions should not go unnoticed. N/A

SpaceGuy987
2018-10-31 2019-01-24 Pictogram plus.png  I feel like TheRilonh's contributions have gone a bit unnoticed, so let's change that. Mainly focusing on the most active years from 2014 to 2016, they not only contributed to the fast translation of new updates and their associated pages, but also many tournament medals, lots of patches, and also entire comics because why not. What also impressed me is their dedication to the translation of the more obscure articles (which kinda is a necessity since /ru tends to be at a high completion rate all the time, thanks to translators like Rilonh), for example competitive maps, community strategies and responses. And it doesn't even stop there, a majority of their work consists of updates to existing pages, an often neglected aspect of translation. And even though the quantity of their contributions decreased over the years, I feel like the total amount is more than enough to warrant a Wiki Cap. Oh, also this 193k update just recently.

Pictogram plus.png  Upon inspecting the candidate, he's done a great deal on the /ru side of the wiki - his contributions ranging from translating articles about medals, patches, cosmetic items, community strategies and other minor stuff to updating other articles and templates. Based off the talk page, it can be argubly said that the quality of the translations seem to not be an issue - although it can't be exactly verified by me. Though, as TidB have noticed - his activity has gone down - that's clear, but the impact that he had on the state of /ru can't be underestimated.
Pictogram plus.png  As Goodjob previously mentioned, TheRilonh has done a very good job to the /ru portion of the Wiki. He has edited and contributed over 500 edits, most of them being positive. At least half of the edits are still current, such as Casual, Competitive, and the ConTracker pages, all in Russian. He has been noticed being very friendly to numerous users, including myself. I would cast my vote for him in regards to his Wiki Cap.
