Call for a couple Stewards to close a discussion

Hey all. We're working out how to ratify the Global bans policy on the talk page and at Global bans/ratification. We're likely to hold either a vite ala the one for global sysops, or an RFC. Per one very sensible request, I just wanted to ask in advance for 2-3 Stewards who would be willing to close the discussion (and thus stay uninvolved in the deliberation). Having a couple volunteers in advance will put everyone's mind at ease I think. Steven Walling (WMF) • talk 20:16, 27 April 2012 (UTC)[]

You probably mean "a vote", not "a vite"? Ruslik (talk) 06:42, 9 May 2012 (UTC)[]
The whole "three closers" system is not enshrined in policy even on enwiki, let alone globally. Snowolf How can I help? 09:30, 3 June 2012 (UTC)[]

User violating block

Thekosher is globally blocked, after being banned by Jimbo from all projects, but, without any appropriate discussion on any noticeboard I can see, has had this block lifted on Commons (no search of the Commons administrators noticeboard shows any discussion of him) and a few other locations. Not only does he get people to pay him to edit wikipedia (w:MyWikiBiz), he also has a history of threatening others. A global ban should not be overridden., particularly without discussion. 06:20, 3 June 2012 (UTC)[]

You're rehashing a two-year old event, as Jimbo said on his enwiki talk page. Drop the stick.--Jasper Deng (talk) 06:28, 3 June 2012 (UTC)[]
Also, a global lock is a global lock, that's in effect regardless of local blocks. The account cannot be logged into, even if unblocked.--Jasper Deng (talk) 06:29, 3 June 2012 (UTC)[]
Then how is he editing here? The account is still globally locked. Obviously, something has gone wrong with the lock, because it's not working to keep him from logging on. 09:24, 3 June 2012 (UTC)[]
That account is unattached from SUL. As the block log shows, a local admin removed the local block in the 25 days when the account wasn't globally locked. Snowolf How can I help? 09:28, 3 June 2012 (UTC)[]
Well, then, last question: Isn't that basically block evasion? 10:12, 3 June 2012 (UTC)[]
Not at all. This is the decision of the local sysops. You should contact them, but I'm sorry stewards can hardly do something here... -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:14, 3 June 2012 (UTC)[]

Vandalism raid on tlwiki

No local sysops are available at the moment. See recent changes.--Jasper Deng (talk) 05:19, 23 June 2012 (UTC)[]

Jasper Deng reports that this is done. — billinghurst sDrewth 03:55, 24 June 2012 (UTC)[]
