Comments about MentifistoEdit

  •   Keep Good. --Vogone (talk) 14:09, 8 February 2017 (UTC)[]
  •   Neutral Barely active, and also this was unimpressive (though to his credit, he did admit his error later). --Rschen7754 14:09, 8 February 2017 (UTC)[]
    • To clarify: this is more of a neutral leaning remove. As a violation of the global CU policy, this could have been reported to the Ombudsman Commission (and rightly so, as it could have provided unauthorized access to CU data). Why I (barely) didn't vote remove was because he admitted his error. --Rschen7754 01:36, 15 February 2017 (UTC)[]
      • It was indeed an error made out of haste... as the situation was superficially the other candidate had enough support, so it didn't look complicated... and only one candidate seemed to have issues, so technically the other had sufficient support to get the data since they were also identified... -- Mentifisto 02:32, 15 February 2017 (UTC)[]

  •   Remove, not active enough to keep up to date of the steward practices. I am particularly concerned by the granting of advanced rights on en.wiki which is one of your home wikis. Even though they are unlikely to be erroneous, they should be left to other stewards per the stewards policy. Additionally, the other incident linked by Rschen, where you granted CheckUser rights to a user on a project without any other checkuser, seems to confirm that you are out of touch with the role of stewards. Since you mention a list of steward request pages in the above statement, it is worth noticing that SRUC and SRSUL since 2014 redirect to the same page, and that you have performed 1 edit on SRG, 11 on SRP, none on VR, and none either on SRUC/SRSUL since your last confirmation. I'd also appreciate some greater effort in creating said confirmation statement instead of copying it from previous years, starting by updating the year. The steward toolset is a rather extensive one which should be handled with all possible care. Savhñ 23:10, 8 February 2017 (UTC)[]
    • To be fair, some stewards view ArbCom directives as uncontroversial. I feel that we would need further backing to consider this a violation of steward policy, or at least a discussion. --Rschen7754 00:32, 9 February 2017 (UTC)[]
      • Some stewards might view them as uncontroversial (though that's new to me, and this is really a slippery slope), but I believe them to be potentially controversial as a conflict of interest could exist when performed by someone whose homewiki it concerns and additionally has also been appointed by the ArbCom to such a position himself. I would consider a clearly successful RfCU on es.wiki to be equally uncontroversial, but would equally expressly refrain from acting on it per the policy. Savhñ 00:47, 9 February 2017 (UTC)[]
        • I've always assumed COI would exist if the person used the tools directly, rather than simply ticking a box on a decision made elsewhere and collectively... it would be odd then if it was declined due to some personal reason, but ArbCom might as well be able to assign them themselves if they already do so sociologically on the wiki, but as suggested perhaps a discussion is needed to clarify consensus? -- Mentifisto 01:35, 9 February 2017 (UTC)[]

  • I'm not concerned with the technical implementation of an ArbCom mandate, as was the case with the first +CU incident. There's clearly no conflict of interest in your action there, anyone would have implemented it the same way. That said, it's soooo easy to just not take actions on your homewiki - there are so many other stewards! We shouldn't need to have these debates. I am more concerned with making only one CU on a wiki, since the CU policy is one of the core policies that we deal with. Those types of mistakes shouldn't happen, though we're all human, so I'm willing to look past that too. What I am even more concerned about is the lack of overall activity, the total absence from any internal discussion, and the apparent out-of-touchness displayed here as mentioned by Savh. SRSUL hasn't existed in a long time. If you are going to continue in this role, which it seems like the consensus is going towards, then it would be nice to see some activity and effort to not only stay up to date, but effectively enforce the core policies that we deal with. – Ajraddatz (talk) 01:25, 15 February 2017 (UTC)[]

  •   Keep. I vaguely recalled such issues about Mentifisto's actions. Although these concerns are legit, there are not enough to plenty justify opposing his confirmation as a steward, given his other skills. As Ajraddatz pointed out, it's highly recommended some effort to stay up to date with our main procedures and policies, in order to avoid this from happening again.
