  • Languages: en, en-3, id-1, ms-2, zh, zh-3, zh-yue-1, can read most Japanese Kanji and most English vocalbularies written in Japanese Katakana but I'm still ja-0, can recognise some Chinese and English vocalbularies written in Korean Hangeul but I'm still ko-0
  • Personal information: I was previously known as EdmundEzekielMahmudIsa here. I've been in the English Wikipedia for about 1 year and 3 months, then in the Chinese Wikipedia for almost a year, and then in the Malay Wikipedia for 8 months... I'm now an administrator in the Malay Wikipedia. I've been translating English articles into Malay, and now I'm trying to catch up the Vietnamese Wikipedia. Once I've became a steward, I'd like to help up in mainly changing rights and changing username in a bureaucrat-less wiki. I'd like to be the first Malaysian steward. I'd like to be the first steward who knows Malay, if excluding Indonesian. I hope that you all will support me. Thanks a lot!

Ich kann ein paar chinesische und englische Vokabeln entziffern, die im koreanischen Hangeul geschrieben sind, aber ich bin immernoch ko-0.
  • Informationen zur Person: Ich war hier früher als EdmundEzekielMahmudIsa bekannt. Ich bin seit einem Jahr und drei Monaten in der englischen Wikipedia, dann in der chinesischen seit fast einem Jahr und dann in der malaiischen Wikipedia seit acht Monaten... Ich bin jetzt Administrator in der malaiischen Wikipedia. Ich habe englische Artikel ins Malaiische übersetzt und versuche jetzt, mich in die vietnamesische Wikipedia einzuarbeiten. Wenn ich Steward werde, möchte ich hauptsächlich bei der Benutzerrechteverwaltung helfen und beim Umbenennen von Benutzern in Wikis ohne Bürokrat. Ich würde gern der erste malaiische Steward werden. Ich würde gern der erste Steward werden, der Malaiisch kann, wenn man Indonesisch nicht mit einrechnet. Ich hoffe, dass ihr mich alle unterstützt. Vielen Dank!

  1. Hi... do you think that being administrator of one wiki is sufficient experience to qualify you for steward? Last year my being an administrator of two wasn't enough for some of those who opposed me then, I got several opposes on the grounds of insufficient Meta experience. (I subsequently became admin on 2 more, CU on 3, and 'crat on two, and now I'm getting an oppose for wearing too many hats :) so who can say...) What other things do you think qualify you for the role? Best of luck in any case. ++Lar: t/c 23:06, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
    Erm... not only being an admin in one wiki, but I think also being a Wikipedian for more than one year. As I being a Wikipedian, I keep learning new things. I don't think it is the matter of how many hats do you wear, but whether you have enough experience in Wikimedia Projects, and whether you're really capable to be a steward to serve. In order to be a steward, you must be ready to spot on people's request for steward aid. I used to come here now, so even though I'm actually quite new here (just a few months!), I'm ready to use my steward power to help. Thank you for your question. --King Edmund of the Woods 10:23, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

  2. I don't think this will succeed, this user in my view hasn't the experience needed yet, and there are things I see in their edits here that give me concern, but I want to encourage this user to continue to get involved and help out, and perhaps if still interested, try again next year. The language portfolio is an interesting and useful mix. Let's call this a "moral support". All best wishes. ++Lar: t/c 16:28, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
    Sorry for my late respond regarding my language codes. I put en and en-3 together because I was brought up speaking English, but unfortunately I'm still lacking of idioms and proverbs plus certain vocalbularies due to the English education in Malaysia. For Chinese, I'm Chinese educated and it plays an important role in my life too, but I'm still not up to the standard yet. Thanks for concern and your support! --King Edmund of the Woods 10:24, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

  3. - I don't like this. [1]. User Edmundwoods doesn't get what is separate cultural development (a millenium long) of peoples and how severe consequences had the policies of violent merging of "mutually intelligible" languages round the world ("suffocation" and extinguishing of whole cultures). I cannot expect from such a user to be neutral on the high wiki-position, especially when related questions arise (and these problems and heated discussions and edit wars are daily thing on Wikipedia). In fact, it'd fair to show that section [2] to all admins (at least to them) from Wikipedias mentioned there, to give you their opinion about dissolving their Wikipedias. Kubura 21:39, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
    If you're worried about him possibly militating for merging projects, stewards have no authority over requests for new wikis (processed by the language subcommittee) or requests to close wikis (processed by the community). —{admin} Pathoschild 02:05:43, 03 December 2007 (UTC)
    Yeah, that's not in the field of a steward's job. And that is only my hope, and this kind of process takes a very long time, because there must be a lot#~~ to do for two similar languages of Wikipedias to merge. Probably my dream of this is quite unrealistic, and that was what I've written long time ago. At that time I was lack of Wikipedia experience. I even found that there was once Kowey suggested to merge the Malay Wikipedia and the Indonesian Wikipedia, but unfortunately the two languages are not similar enough to merge. For Kubura saying that show the admins, in my opinion if it happen that two similar Wikipedias are to merge, all admins from both wikis should continue their job automatically. And about "separate cultural development", Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a culture farm. It is for people to gain knowledge, not for editors to "show off" nor "protect" their own culture. All cultures should coexist in each wiki. --King Edmund of the Woods 10:35, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

  5. This guy thinks that replacing article with text “... is a homo sexual” is really funny. 'Nuff said. –Ejs-80 02:50, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
    Yeah, that is patent vandalism, but whether it is funny, it is just my opinion. Only that Wikipedia is not the appropriate place for such thing, but maybe starting another wiki for such. --King Edmund of the Woods 10:35, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
    It's your opinion, but I think that it shows immaturity. –Ejs-80 13:43, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
    You call it immaturity. But do you think that having such characteristic means that I'm really not capable to be a steward? Anyway, now I don't seem to find it funny anymore. I'm going to remove that link. --King Edmund of the Woods 14:54, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
  6. Lacks sufficient experience for the job. As this is the first I've learned of the user, I suspect he doesn't get around much. AmiDaniel 05:54, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

  11. John Vandenberg 02:35, 6 December 2007 (UTC) Doing a good job currently, but not ready for the role of steward this year. Keep helping out with translations, especially here on meta and on commons, to become more involved in the community.
    Thank you for your advice, unfortunately I'm quite busy in the Malay Wikipedia and real life :-( --King Edmund of the Woods 06:42, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
    John V. speaks wisely. Being a steward is a very significant time commitment, and many voters perceive that it's fair to ask you to first spend some considerable time gaining experience. In my case after getting significant numbers of opposes last year for insufficient Meta experience, I started editing here actively, became an admin, did more work, became a CU, did more work, and became a 'crat. (and meanwhile also gained CU and 'crat on Commons to help out and to improve my cross wiki experiences) As it turns out we have a very very efficient 'crat here in Majorly (HI Majorly!) so I don't do much crat work here, (I'm waiting for him to slack off, but I may have a long wait! :) ) but the point is that if you aren't willing to devote considerable time and effort in learning about multiple wikis, helping others, gaining trust, and improving things wherever you work, then perhaps stewardship is not for you. No offense intended, and I hope you find this advice helpful. ++Lar: t/c 04:38, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

  1. I put myself here, but I fully endorse Lar's word about this user. --M/ 21:36, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
  2. I would oppose for now, because of the lack of experience, but I would really like to see more Asiatic stewards, so in summary it is a "neutral". --Thogo (talk) 21:50, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
  3. Man, Patience! (I saw your cross-wiki demands for name changes.) Hillgentleman 02:02, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
    Erm, excuse me, what impatience am I having? --King Edmund of the Woods 10:50, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
    For example, here [3]. The bureaucrats are there to help you, but they are not obliged to do everything you ask. In a wiki everybody contributes voluntarily. Be cool, man. Hillgentleman 11:18, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
    OK OK, now I have already realised how foolish I was at that time. So Aphaia came and lecture me. Then I have removed that message. It was my immaturity. I was impatient. Yes, you're right! --King Edmund of the Woods 14:52, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
    Anyway, I hope that you understand why I was impatient. You know the Unified login? I was worried that I couldn't have my name changed everywhere before the programme launch. Then I'll end up having unwanted multiple accounts throughout the whole Wikimedia, and I really don't want the old account (old name). --King Edmund of the Woods 15:28, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
