Warning

The 2017 steward elections are finished. No further votes will be accepted.

The 2017-18 Confirmation will begin on 8 February, and will finish on 28 February.

The 2017-18 Steward Confirmations are an opportunity for the Wikimedia community to comment on the performance of existing stewards. To make the process as smooth as possible, the confirmations are organized as follows.

To comment, please log in with an account that has edits (on any wiki) before 8 February. During the 2017 Elections, please mention if you are comfortable or unhappy with the use of steward tools of any of the people listed below and why.

After the election, stewards (including the newly-elected ones) are invited to review the confirmation comments and to give their impression of the outcome (consensus to confirm/remove etc.) on Talk:Stewards/Confirm/2017 for every steward who stood for confirmation. Of course, they are not required to do this for every candidate and will be especially careful to do it regarding someone about whom they expressed strong opinions in the confirmation. Non-steward comments are welcome outside of the "Final Decision" section, subject to the usual expectations of civility. Confirmation discussions will last one week after the appointment of the newly elected stewards. This may be extended to two weeks for one or more confirmations at the discretion of the Election Committee if the committee believes further input is required before concluding. The Election Committee will close these discussions and implement the outcome (which also means making a decision in non-obvious cases).

All stewards elected before February 2017 will undergo this process.

  • Personal info: Hello everyone. I've been a steward for three years now, and with your permission I would like to continue in that role for another year. I've maintained a reasonable level of activity since being elected, and you can view a breakdown of my activity this year at this page. Most of my work in this role deals with responding to cross-wiki abuse, assigning local permissions through Meta-Wiki, and participating in discussions with the group as a whole. If confirmed, I will continue to be active in these areas. Outside of the steward role, I am still an active member of the Wikidata community, and I occasionally write some articles on the English Wikipedia. As always, if you have any questions, I would be glad to answer them. Thanks, – Ajraddatz (talk) 07:18, 27 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

  • Personal info: As per previous years, I would like to express my gratitude for the community's continued trust in my contributions, and I would like to continue in this role for the upcoming year. While not the most active steward, I believe I contribute value in almost all steward areas, especially in discussions and decisions which may not always be visible on-wiki due to privacy issues. While I have reduced my Wikimedia-wide activities this past year (having voluntarily relinquished Oversight on the Commons) I think that the experience I bring from various janitorial positions across the projects will continue to help the corpus of Stewards in the coming year. Thank you. -- Avi (talk) 16:30, 16 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

  • Personal info: Hello all! It's been a great time since I've been made a steward back in 2011. I've since then been usually around. In the past year, I suffered from serious health issues from which I currently try to recover. That is the reason why I was not really active in the last term. I'm currently not sure how much my activity levels will rise. I already dropped a few rights in November last year and I guess it's simply about time to also drop my steward rights. I really enjoyed the time and I'd certainly love to keep my rights, but I'm currently not really helpful and have no clue when I will be able to return to some more stable activity. After thinking a long time about it, I decided to not seek confirmation this year. I will, however, try to stick around. -Barras talk 13:27, 30 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

  • Personal info: Hello again all, and Happy Chinese New Year! I'm here to ask for your support for another year of stewardship. I'm mostly working with blocking spambots, and also sometimes requests via IRC every now and then need immediate response. Also I've started helping with steward's tickets starting last year. In 2017, there will be some major changes in my personal life, but I'm still aiming to be more active month-per-month basis from last year. Thank you. Bennylin 11:45, 28 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

  • Personal info: I have been a steward for over 6 years now and have had many good experiences with the current/past stewards and would like to continue to do so. Although I haven't been active as I used to be, I am still around to deal with people who use the wiki to vandalize, spam, and the other kinds of abuse. I look forward to working with the current and future stewards this year.

  • Personal info: It feels a bit strange to look at Stewards and realize that you are now the oldest still active steward since M7 left close to his tenth anniversary. Although I usually only have little free time left after mostly very long working days (at Wikimedia Deutschland), I still try to be as present as possible as a steward, be it onwiki or in chats, and try to help wherever I can (for example, once again in the Election Committee). In particular that means to be available on IRC (also to restart bots which I co-maintain on ToolLabs), on the mailing lists, and on OTRS or Skype, where users who were affected by some of my global range blocks ask for support. Most of these blocks are caused by a long-term troll that I've grown to handle well, which also explains my high and constant activity on loginwiki and the huge amount of accounts I've locked.

    Unfortunately, I'm not as active anymore in cross-wiki vandal fighting on smaller wikis or handling global rename requests (in fact, I stopped the latter after I spent much time helping to establish it), but I'm still happy that the SUL finalization, realized collaboratively with the Wikimedia Foundation, continues to make new tools possible and our work more effective. My good connection to the Wikimedia Foundation is, so I like to think, in many ways quite valuable to the steward group. Therefore I try to attend as many monthly calls with the Foundation as possible, where I contribute my experience, mainly on the topic of global bans with which I became quite experienced in the last couple of months. Some of the banned users also directly attacked me and have even denounced me to my former employee. I find it highly important that we convey very clearly, that vandalism and personal attacks are unacceptable. I also gave a presentation on that topic at the German WikiCon (German slides), as well as a presentation introducing metawiki to the broader German community (German slides), as I also understand the steward role as a bridge between the local and global communities.

    I want to continue serving to the same extent, helping my dear fellows as well as my local community with global matters, and would be very glad to celebrate my tenth anniversary as a steward this December. Thanks for your patience, and please feel free to ask questions.
