Stewards needed for the enwp ArbCom elections

The following discussion is closed: English Wikipedia has actioned their requirements

The annual Arbitration Committee elections on the English Wikipedia are coming up, please see en:WP:ACE2013. A set of Stewards is needed as scrutineers to check that voters are eligible, count votes and perform other duties related to the mw:Extension:SecurePoll interface. Please see en:Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee Elections December 2013/Coordination/Instructions for scrutineers for more detailed information. It is prefered to have Stewards whose home wiki is not enwp and that did not participate in last year's elections (i.e. Stewards other than User:Pundit, User:Teles. User:Quentinv57, User:Mardetanha) in order to preserve the integrity of the process. Thanks. 23:09, 2 November 2013 (UTC)[]

Did it two years ago, so maybe could do it again. (Though not sure how much spare time I have, can't promise anything.) Trijnsteltalk 23:11, 2 November 2013 (UTC)[]
I want to vote. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 23:14, 2 November 2013 (UTC)[]
  • I'd be happy to help as a scrutineer for these elections. Mathonius (talk) 23:51, 2 November 2013 (UTC)[]
  • I'm an admin there (though it isn't my true home wiki) which pretty well excludes me. — billinghurst sDrewth 07:30, 3 November 2013 (UTC)[]
  • Here I am. --Vituzzu (talk) 10:07, 3 November 2013 (UTC)[]
So if I understood it well enough, there are three stewards for now: User:Trijnstel, User:Mathonius and User:Vituzzu. Trijnsteltalk 11:48, 3 November 2013 (UTC)[]
Good point. We do need new Stewards each year. I've added the Stewards to en:Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee Elections December 2013/Coordination#Scrutineers. Please update as needed. Thanks. 05:43, 7 November 2013 (UTC)[]
When there is no need for so many people, I'm also fine to not do the job this year. It was just an offer, nothing more. If I have enough time I can do it next year. Just take three or four of us instead of all. -Barras talk 09:10, 7 November 2013 (UTC)[]
You can remove my name. There are enough volunteers. :) Trijnsteltalk 09:20, 7 November 2013 (UTC)[]
I've removed us two from the list on enwiki. -Barras talk 09:27, 7 November 2013 (UTC)[]
4 should be good... thanks for understanding. :) --Rschen7754 09:29, 7 November 2013 (UTC)[]

'templateeditor' right for global editinterface

Hello, could a steward please add the 'templateeditor' right to the global editinterface group? enwp has a new protection level, which means that while editinterface editors can edit sysop protected pages and MediaWiki: pages, they can't edit a lower level of protection, which is stupid. gerrit:94051 has been deployed, so this should be possible now. Thanks, Legoktm (talk) 21:42, 6 November 2013 (UTC)[]

Major VisualEditor rollout in the wings

I'm going to link to Whatamidoing's more detailed post, but the short version is that VE will be rolled out to a large number of smaller Wikipedias (detailed list at MediaWiki) next Monday. Although we don't expect it to result in anything that will require your skills, I thought I'd leave you folks a note for information's sake. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
