Stewards (2021 Confirmations)
The 2021–22 Confirmation will begin on 05 February, and will finish on 26 February.

The 2021–22 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 05 February. During the 2021 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/2021 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 2021 will undergo this process.

  • Personal info: I was quite sick early 2020, to the point that I had to get a COVID testing just to be admitted to the hospital (tested negative though) - later when I was recovering, the "Wikipedia Foundation" saga happened and my activity in Wikimedia dropped to near-zero. (I was also busy with IRL event that suddenly emerged with COVID.)

    After few months, I started to edit again, but at a lower frequency. I am not sure if I am still needed at the WMF projects, given WMF's "We don't care about community" attitude. I actually thought of resigning, but decided to stand for renewal this year because I think community still benefits from having one more steward from Asian timezone.

    Only excuse I have for this year's low activity is COVID (yeah, easy excuse, but that's the largest hit around the world.). At least I expect my IRL pressure to (sorta) drop, so I will be more active this year. I've still processed some OS request and global locks involving suppression of usernames, in addition to what is publicly visible.

    These days, I am not sure if I want to be a part of this movement, but I still believe in the community, not the WMF.

    Full disclosure

    My contract with WMF is over, as indicated by SE2020 statement. (See also: SE2018 / Confirmation 2019 / Confirmation 2020)

Comments about -reviEdit

  • Keep Keep. I'm going to get preachy for a second and draw attention to a brief conversation -revi and I had with WMF representatives here. Over the next few years, if the WMF continues along the path it is going, we all will have a decision to make. Quite frankly, the WMF has the capability to run the entire movement into the ground if they continue to ignore what the community (read: the people who write the content) has to say. At some point, there will be a number of high-profile departures of key community talent that will accelerate the process. But yet, especially today there is a need for accurate and free information, and Wikipedia still remains a top 15 site. And real people still face harassment on Wikimedia projects and need assistance from administrators, functionaries, and stewards. These are all things that we have to have to think very carefully about going forward. --Rschen7754 14:03, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

  • Personal info: Hello, this is my second confirmation as a steward.

    Last year the main issues that were brought up about my stewardship were low activity that also had a large gap in it. This time I have managed to be active quite evenly throughout the year. The total quantitative statistics of my stewardship aren't great, but if you discount global blocks and locks which were not the areas I have focused on, you will find me somewhere in the middle of the list actions wise.

    What I did focus on was primarily permission management on SRP and SRGP, communication with WMF in the monthly calls (I've attended roughly a half of them) as well as with the fellow stewards via our communication channels. The most uncommon actions I have taken this tenure were a couple of bigdelete usages in some major Wikipedias, requested at SRM. I've also been doing some user renames, being one of the two Ukrainian and one of the few Russian speakers with the access, as well as an amount of GS domain actions. Actions aside I was trying to be active in Wikimedia Stewards User Group, in particular making sure we do not stand asides regarding branding open letter. I've also done some outreach explaining the role of the stewards to other users, especially Ukrainian community and to lesser extent Russian community and just individual Wikimedians or groups of them on various formal and informal platforms (chats, regular virtual meetings, a Wikiconference)

    The challenges I've faced mostly are related to being conscious with the boundary I have to keep regarding my home community while also being helpful to deal with LTAs originating from it. I do act when I need to, and try to inform the community members on where the boundary shall lie, but if this ends up being uncomfortable I plan discussing it at a relevant administrator forum.

    If I am confirmed for another tenure I will continue doing at least the same, I do also hope to login to OTRS more, potentially dedicate some more time to do some counter-vandalism work I mostly prioritise low for myself. I hope to also work on some technical tools. It is heart-warming for me to see that many stewards are using my GIPBE logging gadget created last tenure for instance. I am also looking forward towards WMF figuring out the procedure to verify people's 2FA statuses proactively, I plan to get involved in this if there is room to help. If not confirmed I still plan to eventually work on the technical things, will stick around the usergroup and will probably eventually request permissions necessary to do some of the actions I've been doing as a steward, such as global renames.

    Thank you for the feedback and I am looking forward finally hitting 10 years as a Wikimedian this year either as a steward or not :) And for those reading the same day I wrote this, Happy Wikipedia Day! --Base (talk) 10:14, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Personal info: Hello everyone. A lot of unexpected things happened last year, and my activities decreased significantly in the later months. I am still trying to recover, but the progress is slow. I think I will only be able to be back by the end of this year, so I am not standing for confirmation this year. I will occasionally be active in other areas so that I could still keep that wikimedian feeling alive within me. Thank you :)

  • Personal info: I have been part of the steward team now for 10 years and hope to continue working with my colleagues. I have been primarily focused on handling vandalism and spambots across the projects. One of my goals for this year is to do other tasks that I have not spent more time on (such as rights changes).

Comments about Bsadowski1Edit

  • Keep Keep Hope you can move into rights management as you said, but well blocking/locking is enough work for you, don't burn out. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 14:07, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
  • Remove Remove It is concerning enough that this steward seems to be incapable of doing anything other than locking accounts. They also violate Communication is required as well. If you try to talk to them on-wiki, you won't get a response. The only way to contactt them is on Freenode. That alone is bad enough. Most of the time any messages are sarcastic/unhelpful and not what I would expect from a Wikimedia Steward. Locking the occasional spambot every now and then does not really excuse that, someone else can do that. Naleksuh (talk) 14:14, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

      • Naleksuh, my keep votes in steward confirms are just my saying nice things about people I’ve interacted with. If I’ve interacted with them more, I make a bit of a joke in them, hence the video game bit. On a serious point, Bsadowski1 is prolific at fighting LTAs and one of the best we have at that. It’d be a loss for us if he were removed. TonyBallioni (talk) 14:44, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

  • Remove Remove I have experienced communication issues with this user where they are hard to get hold of anywhere, including IRC. This is problematic when often, getting hold of a steward is very important and time-sensitive. I also found myself repeatedly harangued and belittled in an uncivil manner any time I made a rookie mistake when I first started out cross-wiki last year (and still continues), which is not what I want to see from a steward.

  • Question Hi, the discussion at Requests for comment/Site-wide administrator abuse and WP:PILLARS violations on the Croatian Wikipedia has been pending a close for the entirety of the last term, and has not had any Steward significantly discuss with the participants its status, despite a couple of requests and the more recent passing of the meta closure of rfc policy. Could you explain why a) you and b) the Stewards as a whole, failed to close (and, as applicable, execute, it)? As a connected point to the most likely answers (too complicated, insufficiently clear remedies, not in remit, etc) could you clarify both why it/they apply but also why you/the Stewards didn't make that known to every participant and ask for specific actions taken to make it possible for the Stewards to act on it, despite the insane timescale?

I couldn't be as active as I wished to be in the past year due to personal circumstances and the pandemic, but I'm confident I will be more active this year. I'm looking forward to your feedback.

  • Personal info: I was elected a steward in 2007. 2020 has been a tough year for many of us. I had to find some onwiki activity to cover the many offwiki activities which used to keep me motivated. I found it in categorization and structured data on Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata. Hence, also my activities as a steward dropped a bit. However, I found some more motivation for steward activities some months ago. My main focus of steward activities changed a couple of times, and so I still help fight some long-time vandals and be available for various tasks. I try to help out in the background with my long-time experience and reach out to our partners. For example, I am one of the co-organizers of the Wikimedia Stewards User Group which I helped set up, and wrote the report for our 2020 activities. Since I got my IRC client fixed, I returned to a more active level there, too. With having these things on my table, I still think that I can enrich this group. I still enjoy playing a part in the stewards group although I am not anymore one of their most active members and I would like to provide my service once again. Thanks in advance for your feedback.

  • Keep Keep According to logs and loginwiki statistics, the least active steward in 2020 (there are around 100-200 actions). But he tried to be an active user on Meta and other wikis. I can ignore his low performance this year, because he is a long-term steward. I hope he can catch up with his old performance as a steward next year. --Uncitoyentalk 20:02, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
    • Being a good steward is more than just about numbers. Legoktm (talk) 06:00, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
      • I have already made my comment by logs and statistics. It is clear that DerHexer is 2020's the least active steward. Already I support him in my comment. Inactive stewards, normally close to the number of transactions DerHexer made as a steward, they weren't supported in the past years. see Stewards/Confirm/2020/There'sNoTime There'sNoTime had made 100 actions and 113 loginwiki CUs in 2019 as a steward. DerHexer has 68 actions and 19 loginwiki CUs from March 2020 to today as a steward. --Uncitoyentalk 08:09, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
        • It's crazy because it feels like much (!) more activity. But maybe my feelings are irritated by the bunch of emails which I've send to stewards-l since last election, the plenty of video calls I have joint to interact with the group, the co-maintenance of the IRC bots and such. I'm not a huge fan of spambot fighting anymore in a proactive way because it consumes so much time when the actual harm is not very clear. Instead, I try to step in when I see actual abuse happening but due to an increased load at work and challenges with my IRC client, I couldn't monitor as in previous years; quite often, other stewards who do not seem to be covered by such workload, tend to be a little faster then. I do know that the blank log numbers are an indicator for activity but not only. It's not untrue that I prefer to work more in the background where I am still quite responsive but my activities are less visible. However, I would try to give some additional emphasis on log actions for next year (ironically, I just had the chance to do that some days ago). Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 10:47, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
          • As I said, the statistics are clear. Also everyone was surprised last year because of this coronavirus. This affected most stewards either negatively or positively (free time for on-wiki, off-wiki or real life). Since you are a good steward for years, I can ignore your low public activity as a steward this year. As you said, you can be an active steward in the background. I hope you will be more active steward next year. :) --Uncitoyentalk 12:29, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

  • Personal info: This is my second confrimation after reelection in 2019. This year was in many ways unusual. I have been active in the first part, later I was inactive. There are some pros of working from home, alas, there are some cons as well. I have been thinking about stepping down. But I realized that I still can be useful in some ways. I still can help in AAR, in some elections as scrutineer or in some everyday work. If you think that this kind of activity will be valuable enough - I am ready to do the job. On the other hand, if you think that this is not an asset - I really do understand. I can offer my willingness to serve for another term. einsbor talk 20:31, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Personal info: Hello all. Sorry, I am late with this statement. Apologies to those who have written kind words in response to my possible resignation. This has been a very difficult year for me. Sadly I have lost members of my immediate family to the accursed coronavirus. I had the virus for several weeks in the autumn (fall) and my health has not recovered to the same level as this time last year. On a less important level, my time has been additionally curtailed with working to counteract the effects of our beloved Brexit. I was thinking of resigning late last year but I have changed my mind. If I resign over this, it will feel as though COVID19 and Brexit have won. I believe I can still contribute and with your permission I’d like to try one more year as a steward.

  • Personal info: I have been a Wikimedian since 2008 and a steward since 2014. On top of that, I am or have been active in various other areas around Wikimedia, most notably by working on Wikidata and by doing various tech things (user scripts, MediaWiki extensions, ...).

    Besides my volunteer activities, I'm employed by Wikimedia Germany as software developer for Wikidata.

    After reduced activity in the second half of 2020, I will increase my activity again. I plan to continue helping out with both on wiki work and by tackling steward related technical issues. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 22:39, 4 February 2021 (UTC)

Comments about Hoo manEdit

  • Remove Remove - entirely absent from May to January, that's most of the year and is not active enough to retain stewardship. Rschen7754 14:04, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
    • I find the comments below bizarre. Hoo man's activity has been on the low side for several years, and they had Wikidata and Meta administrator rights removed earlier this year for inactivity. I don't really care whether he was on IRC or not (I don't go on IRC much anymore so I don't know) - the main purpose of being a steward is using the tools. --Rschen7754 01:54, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
      • Personally, I think being a steward is more than just using the tools. I'm also happy to give anyone a pass on being inactive because just about everyone had a disastrous IRL this year, and that's okay. Legoktm (talk) 06:12, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
        • I have to push back on this trope, because it promotes the notion that being a steward is a status symbol, which is against how Wikimedia works. I'm not opposed to breaks during the year (I even took one myself), but when you spend 2/3 of your term almost inactive and the remaining 1/3 with a few spambot multilocks a month, that's a problem. --Rschen7754 06:24, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
          • I meant there are plenty of other things stewards do besides just performing logged actions (how I interpreted "using the tools"). Legoktm (talk) 11:09, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep Still acceptable as I seen them here and there, but this is a weak keep. If confirmed I hope you will be more active this year on. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 14:12, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

  • Keep Keep - acceptable - -jkb- 14:37, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
  • Question Hi, the discussion at Requests for comment/Site-wide administrator abuse and WP:PILLARS violations on the Croatian Wikipedia has been pending a close for the entirety of the last term, and has not had any Steward significantly discuss with the participants its status, despite a couple of requests and the more recent passing of the meta-rfc policy. Could you explain why a) you and b) the Stewards as a whole, failed to close (and, as applicable, execute, it)? As a connected point to the most likely answers (too complicated, insufficiently clear remedies, not in remit, etc) could you clarify both why it/they apply but also why you/the Stewards didn't make that known to every participant and ask for specific actions taken to make it possible for the Stewards to act on it, despite the insane timescale?

    Like most other stewards, my activity and availability has been affected by the pandemic. I would still like to help out where I can, as there is plenty of maintenance work and improvements we can make to improve processes and tools used to protect projects from LTAs.
    Separate from the pandemic, I have been a bit discouraged by the lack of response from the Foundation to address a language/translation issue which would greatly improve accessibility for those who don't speak English so they can understand why they cannot edit a page or why they are blocked, and the necessary steps to get an exemption etc. if necessary.
    Despite there being 11 Wikimedia Foundation staff on the Language and Translation team, no substantive action has been taken on this task since October 2020, nor the closely related task filed in January 2020. Should this still be a problem next year I can say with near certainty that I would not stand for re-confirmation on the basis that the Foundation does not adequately listen to or support the communities which produce and maintain the integrity all of the content that make the WMF relevant.

  • Personal info: Fellow Wikimedians, 2020 was certainly an interesting year for the whole world and that has certainly affected many of our activism here in the wiki world. We have made progress as human race in the fight against pandemic and hoping to be back to normal a bit in 2021. It has been my privilege to support the community and project in this role since 2010 and if the community still trusts me with the tools, I am happy to continue for another term.

Comments about JyothisEdit

  • Remove Remove - so sorry about this but I think a complete break from May to August and then another from August to January, plus minimal activity in between, is not active enough to retain stewardship. --Rschen7754 14:04, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

For Jyothis, we can't say that it was inactive within last 6 months per steward policy. There is a 4-5 month period between August and January.

  • Personal info: Dear community,

    I would like to request renewal of my steward permissions.

    After one year my activity was nearly as intended one year ago, i.e. a little bit of everything with some focus on OTRS tickets, where I created around 6000 answers in the Stewards queue, with is around 75% of the total amount. As this was quite a lot of work, my onwiki steward actions may appear a bit lower than they should.

    Regarding my other roles, I think I'm still active above average in each of them, so I would like to ask for being confirmed.

    Thank you, yours --Krd 08:49, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Comments about KrdEdit

  • Remove Remove. Krd unfortunately is not suited to be part of the team. He has problems dealing with opposition to his actions, while also reverting fellow colleagues without talking to them. Has a track record of poor responses/handling of them on stewards OTRS, granting GIPBE for LTAs in multiple instances, and replying to the emails with templates that are not accurate for the incoming email. —Thanks for the fish! talkcontribs 14:05, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

  • Question Hi, the discussion at Requests for comment/Site-wide administrator abuse and WP:PILLARS violations on the Croatian Wikipedia has been pending a close for the entirety of the last term, and has not had any Steward significantly discuss with the participants its status, despite a couple of requests and the more recent passing of the meta-rfc policy. Could you explain why a) you and b) the Stewards as a whole, failed to close (and, as applicable, execute, it)? As a connected point to the most likely answers (too complicated, insufficiently clear remedies, not in remit, etc) could you clarify both why it/they apply but also why you/the Stewards didn't make that known to every participant and ask for specific actions taken to make it possible for the Stewards to act on it, despite the insane timescale? Nosebagbear (talk) 14:59, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
    Hi Nosebagbear, thank you for the question. I think there are a lot of factors that come together. To keep it as short as possible: A case of such size likely should not be evaluated by a single steward, and stewards as a group failed to agree on any reasonable solution. In the end my personal opinion is that the discussion should be closed without a result, and perhaps started from the beginning, not least because the situation changed a bit since the discussion started. --Krd 15:17, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
    @Krd: thank you for your quick answer - was there a reason the group didn't let the participants know that no closure was going to be forthcoming, along with some suggestions that might perhaps have helped a resolution be found as opposed to now having to recommence the whole thing and chuck a huge amount of editor hours?

    This year again, I would like to request renewal of my steward permissions for a sixth term. During last year I was mainly active on SRG and SRP requests. This year, due to some schedule changes outside of the Wikis, I haven't be active in small wiki monitoring at all.

  • Personal info: Hello. On 2020 I've been active on various areas, focusing mainly on cross-wiki countervandalism, maintenance/housekeeping and anti-spam activities as well as responding to on-wiki requests of various types. I've also helped with the yearly admin activity review checks and the bot policy implementation, among other miscellaneous stewards' tasks (e.g. renaming users, clearing some backlogs, discussions, etc.). I think I can still be of service, and I'd like to volunteer for another term if the community think that's okay. Thank you. Best regards.

Comments about MarcoAurelioEdit

BACKGROUND: on 2 December 2020 you globally locked a user as an LTA (long term abuser). The Global account information indicates that this user registered an account on 3 November 2020 and has contributed a total of 50 edits and was blocked only on Meta.
This user came to my attention when they asked a newbie-type question on 5 November 2020 at the Village pump of the en-wikiquote. The same user posted a follow-up question on my user-talk on 12 November 2020.
It was only by a coincidence that I discovered this user was globally blocked as an LTA within less than a month of registration. Since I thought this was a potential new contributor I was curious to see what this user did to deserve the reception they got from our community.
According to the Global account information which is linked from the newbie's contributions page, you, MarcoAurelio, were the only admin involved in the blocking of this user on META, where the user made only one contribution to Wikimedia Forum on December 2 shortly before being blocked by you.
QUESTIONS:
  1. What is the definition of LTA ?
  2. Do stewards consult the documentation in regards to LTAs before blocking users for this offence? If so where is the documentation?
  3. Where can the community view and participate in discussions about blocking particular users for Long Term Abuse?
  4. What is the appeal procedure?
  5. Can any concerned user start an appeal procedureon behalf of a globally locked user?
Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 18:11, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
Happy to answer.
Regarding the account FCoonerBCA, they're far from being a newbie, because they're another sockpuppet account of Huik01, which has been abusing multiple accounts since 2009, that is, 11 years. The sockpuppetry was confirmed based on non-public tecnical evidence after a request, so I cannot share more details on that specific.
There's no formal definition of what an long-term abuse[r] is. We have to use our judgement to decide when a global lock is or is not appropriate, usually based on precedent and common practice. Of course, global blocks are there to stop vandalism/abuse so if there's no abuse, no global lock will be issued. The same is true if the abuse does not ammount to a level where individual communities can manage the case themselves. There's an information page with common reasons that have been used to request global locks but it's not a closed list. People can request global locks and unlocks at Steward requests/Global, and a steward will consider the request. Global locks can also be the result of a global ban, but those are always after community discussion and consensus (except those done by the Wikimedia Foundation pursuant the WMF Global Ban Policy and the Terms of Use; the community plays no role in those although some of those may be eligible for review). Locked users can inquire and appeal their global locks by email to our OTRS queue. Any user can ask the stewards to reconsider a global lock in the Steward requests/Global page. While Meta does not have any formal prohibition against proxying, it's best if the locked user themself addresses their concerns directly to us as usually we'll have questions that are best answered by the concerned user.
Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 19:48, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio: Thanks for reponding. I have checked some of the links you provided, and am wondering if it is possible a mistake was made somwhere along the way?
Here is what I found so far:
  • USER:Huik01 was globally locked 11 years ago. This means he cannot even log in to any WMF-wiki. Before being globally locked Huik01 was indef-blocked on enwiki in 2009 as a 'Vandalism-only account and his talk-page access was removed immediately. The admin who single-handedly carried both blocking actions (User:Tnxman307) is "Retired" according to their enwiki userpage.
  • On enWikinews Huik01 was indef-blocked because of: Abusing multiple accounts: Sock of banned troll" by User:Blood Red Sandman who according to their enWN userpage is no longer an admin.
  • On enSimple Huik01 was indef-blocked because of: blocked on other projects as well as other reasons by User:Juliancolton who is no longer an admin on ensimple but is still an admin at both enwiki and commons.
Can you shed more light on this situation? Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 17:22, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
I am sorry, but I cannot really know what motivates somebody to either keep contributing or not for any period of time, or keep infringing upon community rules and sanctions for so long either. Huik01's enwiki talk page was not removed immediatelly as you claim: only after abusing their talk page posting homophobic edit summaries and racist slurs the admin revoked their talk page access. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 19:10, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for responding, MarcoAurelio. Yes those edits which you have linked to are pretty bad. As far as talk page was not removed immediatelly according to my calculation only eight minutes elapsed between the time Huik01 was blocked and the time his usertalkpage access was removed. According to the enwiki block log: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Log/block?page=User:Huik01 Huik01 was blocked on 18:37, 28 December 2009 and their user-talk-page access was removed on 18:45, 28 December 2009.

  • Personal info: Dear WMF Community, it has been a great pleasure for me to serve the community for the past 10 years as a steward, like the past couple of years I was mainly active in the field of fighting and long-term abusers and spambots, I was regularly available on IRC for emergency occasions and monitoring Small wikis and helping urgent requests. Given my stable status in life, I would like to serve the community for another year. Mardetanha (talk) 15:54, 27 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Question Hi, the discussion at Requests for comment/Site-wide administrator abuse and WP:PILLARS violations on the Croatian Wikipedia has been pending a close for the entirety of the last term, and has not had any Steward significantly discuss with the participants its status, despite a couple of requests and the more recent passing of the meta-rfc policy. Could you explain why a) you and b) the Stewards as a whole, failed to close (and, as applicable, execute, it)? As a connected point to the most likely answers (too complicated, insufficiently clear remedies, not in remit, etc) could you clarify both why it/they apply but also why you/the Stewards didn't make that known to every participant and ask for specific actions taken to make it possible for the Stewards to act on it, despite the insane timescale?

  • Remove Remove. I do not trust a Steward who not only closed an RFC contrary to consensus, they admitted receiving a financial package dependent upon closing in that manner. The RFC was Meta Do something about azwiki, the closing diff, and the close briefly alludes to the financial package where they say they will be traveling to Azerbaycan this month (with WMF support). Anyone with a direct financial conflict of interest has absolutely no business selecting themselves as closer - if they disagreed with consensus or they wanted to propose a different solution then they should have posted as a participant. Anyone who would preform a financial-conflict-of-interest close has no business being a Steward. Alsee (talk) 13:37, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
This is comment is both insulting to me and to Wikimedia Foundation, The Foundation's travel grant process is completely separate from T&S or any other part of the Foundation. The assumption that it is one giant, a homogeneous organization is wrong. Mardetanha (talk) 14:56, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
I never said the Travel Grant was part of T&S. I never said the Foundation was homogeneous. I said I don't trust you to be a Steward, because you should have known not to close the RFC when you had a direct financial conflict of interest. You would not have received the grant $$$ had the RFC been closed in accordance with consensus.
If it was simply a mistake and you failed to notice the conflict of interest, you should have immediately withdrawn the close when that conflict was brought to your attention. Instead you refused, arguing that grant $$$ "was/is not something of value".[2] Alsee (talk) 16:57, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

  • Personal info: Dear community,

    This is my first confirmation as a Wikimedia Steward. As I still enjoy doing the stewardry work, I would like to continue in a next term. I don't have a dedicated area of stewardry work to focus on, and I always try to help wherever I can.

    Outside of my steward role, I'm a Czech Wikipedia administrator, bureaucrat and checkuser. In the last year, my list of homewikis got expanded, as I'm now also a Wikidata administrator. I'm also active at Wikimedia Phabricator.

    Disclaimer: I'm a Wikimedia Foundation contractor, working as a Czech Wikipedia community ambassador for the Growth team. For more details, see my staff userpage.

How should that work responsibly? Many other critical things also got through to me. In the position completely untenable. 30,000 CU are misuse of this tool. -- Marcus Cyron (talk) 23:08, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
    @Marcus Cyron I would like to explain why the number is so high. Right now, global locks do not have any autoblock-like mechanism, like it exists for local blocks (this was suggested several times in community wishlist, but still is not implemented). To prevent spambots and vandalbots from simply creating another account, locked accounts are usually CU'ed at loginwiki, to globally block the IP. In the last year, I locked thousands of spambots, and blocked thousands of heavily abused IPs, thanks to LWCU. Without CU'ing the spambots, it would not be possible, and they would probably just bot-create another account and continue their vandalism. Martin Urbanec (talk) 00:13, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
