People who publicly endorse my platform include the following:


  1. I am honored to be the first to endorse Erik Moeller's campaign. I wish him good luck for the election and his future in Wikimedia. Messedrocker 19:41, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
  2. I think that Erik can provide great leadership for the Wikimedia organization. I definitely support his candidacy. -- IlyaHaykinson 00:31, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
  3. I am and always have been deeply impressed with Erik's knowledge, vision, drive and broad range of activities. Wikmedia would not have been what it is without him. He matches Antheres candidness, if not quite her tactfulness, but noone is perfect. Wikimedia needs people like Erik to keep the momentum going. I wish him best of luck in the elections. Erik Zachte 03:49, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
  4. Erik gets my whole support. I endorse Eloquence's platform. Hégésippe | ±Θ± 04:12, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
  5. Although I'm torn between him and another great candidate, I've decided to endorse Erik in his campaign, as I believe his take on the issues facing Wikimedia currently is quite astute and to the point, and I believe his serving on the Borad of Trustees will prove to be of great profit for the project. —Nightstallion (?) 06:27, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
  6. I have not always agreed with Eloquence/Erik, but he disagreed with me respectfully, intelligently, and with conviction. If I were on a board, he's exactly the kind of person I'd want to be on the board also. Rholton 03:27, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
  7. I cannot imagine a finer candidate. Erik is a model of integrity and openness, and combines these traits with a creative mind, fine technical skills, and a deep desire to learn from others. This is an outstanding blend of characteristics for a Wikimedia board member. Dovi 06:35, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
  8. I strongly support Erik's platform in this election and I believe he is the best candidate to represent the community in the development of the Wikimedia Foundation over the coming year. Erik has shown a continued commitment, not only to Wikipedia but to the Wikimedia Foundation as a whole. Erik's commitment to the sort of openness that will ensure the community will have an influence in ensuring the Foundation meets its goals makes me happy to endorse him as the person to replace me on the Board. Angela 16:45, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
  9. Erik has perhaps the most comprehensive understanding of the Wikimedia universe -- from its philosophy, to its projects, to its technical and organizational infrastructure -- of anyone involved with the Foundation. I support his candidacy and endorse him for the Board. --Evan 04:43, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
  10. I've always been strongly impressed with Erik's work, his commitment and his creativity and many great ideas, and am delighted to support his candidacy. Erik is a great resource for the community. He was nearly elected to the first Wikimedia board, and lost only narrowly by 11 votes. Kph 11:59, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
  11. Sometimes I am not happy about Erik's way, but I see his actions as having a really positive effect on Wikipedia, therefore I fully support him (Fest Daumendrück ;-) Fantasy 06:59, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
  12. I'm happy to endorse Erik. We've conversed on various topics on wikien-l, and on occasion we've happened to edit the same article. I've always found him reasonable, thoughtful and willing to converse amicably even when there is disagreement. He has extensive knowledge of the Wikimedia community at multiple levels: as a programmer, as an active editor, and as an active participant in discussing and setting policies and norms. I think he would be a great board member. --Sheldon Rampton 03:55, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
  13. Of all the candidates, Erik is the most involved as a Wikimedian. He was instrumental in the creation of Wikinews and Commons. He is currently actively involved in Wikidata and therefore in WiktionaryZ. As the emphasis is slowly but surely turning away from en.wikipedia there will also be an increased emphasis on the other Wikimedia projects. Erik has creditably championed the good cause of the Wikipedia, he has been extremely relevant for the other projects and this is what makes him a perfect candidate for this office of board member for the Wikimedia Foundation.

  14. For having such a cool platform page and for making the word competency blush. GChriss 17:52, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
  15. I am very happy to see Erik's candidacy for this election. I trust his personal judgement and I believe he is one of those who fully gets what Wikipedia is about. I will vote for Erik again. Sverdrup 02:30, 26 August 2006 (UTC)
  16. Erik's enthusiasm, commitment, and organizational and technical expertise make him the ideal candidate for the Board. -- NGerda 22:22, 26 August 2006 (UTC)
  17. Eloquence is a tireless developer and moderator on multiple projects. He will make a great contribution to the board. Ŭalabio 07:13, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
  18. I feel that Erik knows what he's talking about and has ideas that could change Wikimedia for the better. I'm happily endorsing him. -- AndreniW (or see en:User:AndreniW) 09:27, 30 August 2006 (UTC)
  19. Erik combines a value for worldwide development, especially for those communities that most need development, with technical expertise and experience in Wikimedia. I am proud to have people like Erik represent me. r3 01:38, 31 August 2006 (UTC)
  20. I am not new in this site, unfortunately, I cannot vote because I just signed up. Well, I see Erik as a great person based on his platforms. I hope his creativity will be recognized now. cuagoo, Philippines
  21. Ah! Just 395 edits in en.wikipedia! You will have my support but unfortunately not my vote! Good luck Erik! Miguel Andrade 04:07, 10 September 2006 (UTC)
  22. Better late than never I suppose. Eloquence has my unequivocal support based on both his illustrious past involvement in Wikimedia, and his admirable platform. the wub 12:59, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
  23. While my endorsement may be seen as a negative by some, I have to say that Erik has been one of the most open-minded, constructively inclusive individuals to address "conflict of interest" issues within Wikipedia. --MyWikiBiz 15:28, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
  24. Erik is an open-minded person and I like his professionalism which is sometimes missing in WP/WM/MW. He is courageous enough to try something new, that's what I like most.
