I think I should be Deputy because I've had experience from WWiki. Even if I haven't had any chararts approved yet, I practice all the time. I can do all types of cat colouring. I think I'm fairly knowledgeable towards this; and I can give advice. I'm fair and kind and well, I guess that's it.
As for a inexperienced user, I'd say,
"Sorry, but someone already has this reserved/has it up for approval. I'll decline it. Keep working on the chararts!"
