This page allows for general discussion and questions regarding the 2018 steward confirmations.

Final decisions (by stewards)Edit

Confirmation discussions will remain open till 13 March 2018, 01:00 (UTC). 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).

This page is for steward discussion only. Please do not comment in this box unless you are a steward.

The summaries below only provide a very strict overview of the most relevant confirmation comments. Stewards: Please leave your comments right below the boxes after reviewing the actual confirmation comments and your understanding of relevant policies.
