Applicants must meet the criteria (see Stewards/Application guidelines) and obtain at least 30 votes in favour with an 80% support ratio.

  1. This is not because I don't trust Bastique or think that he is not a great Wikimedian (he is); it's simply because I would prefer more experience on Meta for stewards. Bastique has less than 100 edits here on Meta prior to this month, and because stewards will have to be primarily active here, I would like to see more time and activity on Meta. You have my full confidence, however, and I will gladly support you if elected. Thanks for your understanding. Flcelloguy (A note?) 01:23, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
  2. Strong Oppose - recent events at en.wik have made me uneasy, but it doesn't seem as though it's going to make a difference anyway. I am also uneasy about calling people bigots. Even if you are correct, it's undiplomatic and shows poor judgement. Moreschi 21:47, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

    I, Zlatko Krastev, moved this discussion back here where it was held and where it belongs!

    • This is a unusual vote against me considering what I've done and where I've contributed. Essentially, you are voting against me because I'm American. Never mind that I contribute to other language Wikipedias, speak French fluently, have contributed toward the Haitian-Kreyol wikipedia. You're only reason for voting against me is because I am American. This seems bigoted. Bastique 20:23, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
      OK, from all candidates your name is the one out of two which rings a bell. I've seen it here and there on en.wiki but nothing memorable. Lets see what have you done so much then? Visiting French Wikipedia I find that you've made 250 edits since May 2005, and the total is less than 500. The toolserver is down desperately waiting for new DB dumps, so I cannot check how many of them are in main namespace. Your contributions to Spanish Wikipedia is between 50 and 100 in total (counter opt-in does not help too), and on Haitian/Portuguese the mileage is less than 50 edits. Only on Gaelic WP you can meet the suffrage criteria. The conclusion - the topmost position you can get support from me is admin or bureaucrat on en.wp. You have the admin rights, call me when you apply for bureaucrat.
      Given the vast number of edits on your personal page on fr.wiki, it seems that you managed to forget a simple fact - Wikipedia is not a webspace provider. On your home wiki the case is even worse! I do not see the need to comment further.
      As for the "bigot" (later "softened" to bigoted) - I dunno! Till now I was under the impression that I am the center of the world and held the corresponding MPOV. Till now it was me being the victim of the Cabel, and now thanks to Hillgentleman I might be accused of becoming a member of a Cabal against you. Feel free to accuse me in anything you like, any time you like, and using any words considered most suitable by you!
      Going back to the main topic: you speak English (language), you live in English (culture), your mindset is English, ... so you are redundant - there are 6 more of that same stuff in the current stewards list. You have no chances of getting my support before living several years outside East/West Coast (of whatever you call America). Given that you are writing and not reading, talking and not listening, I've reconsidered my vote indeed! -- Goldie ± (talk) 11:18, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
      Please accept my sincerest apologies (here, as you prefer, and on your talk page). As I mentioned to HillGentleman on his talk page, I was in shock that I was considered Anglo-American centric in spite of what I have accomplished on Wikimedia Commons in involving other language projects and cultures. Therefore, I apologize for my choice of words and regret that I cannot get you to change your mind. Bastique 15:39, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

    Quit making ad hominem attacks against me. Who I am and what I have or have not been involved in doesn't matter to this discussion, and because of that I am not going to waste anyone's time here, defending myself against any such irrelevant accusations or insinuations. What matters is that I believe that you shouldn't be trusted with the powers as a steward, when you are unable to use your admin powers in a reasonable and neutral way, dealing with editors that you personally have had a disagreement with. Here is another link to discussion, this time on AN/I, where several editors are questioning Bastique's actions as a ordinary editor and in his role as an admin: [4] -- Karl Meier 22:32, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

  7. Weak Oppose based on the threats to block users and persistent defence of a troll made on en: ANI. I will not have such a user as a steward. recent events at enwiki that have been disappointing and have slightly compromised what trust I had in Bastique. I hope this is simply a one-off incident, hence, changed to weak oppose. Chacor 02:08, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
  8. With regret - I like Bastique, he has made substantial contributions. However, accusing people of bigotry because they hold the position that we need people from a wider range of backgrounds in order to conter inadvertant bias via societal conditioning shows an unhappy difficulty in seeing things from others' perspectives - precisely the concern these people had, which only confirms their concerns. This is too troubling to overlook. KillerChihuahua 15:06, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
  9. Strong Oppose based on recent actions on English Wikipedia. 日本穣 Nihonjoe 17:26, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
  10. Oppose now. I don't oppose because he is anglo-centric. Even I am sometimes anglo-centric; I tend to begin communication with someone in English without question if it is the best language we are going to talk with, and in my opinion it is an anglo-centric attitude. In another occuasion, I am japano-centric or christianity-centric but I wouldn't argue about that. My own view and attitude should not be in NPOV, even if I long for not being so. People are necessarily influenced by their cultural background, and it is inevitable. However it is different that someone is influenced by his background and that someone is unconscious about that. And from my view, his attitude is still anglo-centric even if weakly and he himself tries to take it over. Specially when he accused someone who pointed it out with a harsh word. I had a good impression on his apologies about that, but rushing people who pointed out and accused them showed his vulnerability. He seems good, but I expect him maturity and self-conciousness in much a higher level appropriate for multicultured community. --Aphaia 20:08, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

  13. Moved from neutral. Oppose per my previous concerns. With the above statement of mentoring Cool Cat, I have to oppose based on his siding with Cool Cat and blocking another user Cool Cat was in conflict with on en:Wikipedia.

Question from Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington

  • Looks like several candidates have got oppose votes and neutrals because of "limited activity/experience on Meta". Do you think it is mandatory for a steward to have a high editcount on Meta? Why or why not? 12:06, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
Thanks, Nicholas, good question. While I don't believe it's mandatory, I feel that it's highly beneficial. I don't have a high amount of edits on Meta, but my edit history goes back considerably. This is notably do to my involvement with other cross-wiki projects such as Wikimedia Commons (I have over 6,000 edits at Commons) and my involvement with the OTRS correspondence system. I consider that my involvement on those projects makes up for a reduced edit count directly on meta.wm. Bastique 14:32, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
I myself do not oppose you, Bastique, but I would like to point out a meta convention; stewards act as meta bereaucrats, I don't know it is de facto or de juri, but past stewards did so without argument. From this reason I can understand a meta regular may feel uneasy to have a steward who is not filled meta admin criteria. --Aphaia 22:59, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
I am more than happy to step into this role. I'm quite familiar with the layout and administration of Meta, even if I don't have an overwhelming edit count directly on Meta itself. Bastique 23:39, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

  25. I don't know him, but after looking through his contributions I think he'd make a good steward. He maintains an unfailingly polite and friendly attitude; I know of many users who would be more agitated than he was if someone removed their bureaucrat and administrator access without explanation, for example. He does seem to be in touch with the wider Wikimedia community despite his little activity on Meta; he reports relevant developments to his home projects and is idling in #wikimedia at the moment of this post. Various comments demonstrate an unusual enthusiastic friendliness, a good respect of privacy, and an understanding that policy should be enforced in spirit rather than to the letter. I'd like to see him become more active in inter-project coordination, but presumably he will when he becomes a steward. :) —{admin} Pathoschild 06:52, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

    That's the silliest worst comment I've read. Stewards are precisely asked not to change status of people from their own wiki to avoid biaised POV. guillom 17:22, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

    I can read one more time on a wiki media what can be considered as a personal attack from guillom. But I am not surprised to see that this user is definitely unable to consider that people which are not of his "wikifriends" can on one hand READ and UNDERSTAND the rules and recommandations of wikiprojects, and, on the other hand, can proceed with fun. Should I have to add warnings next time ? This confirms my vote on his appliance. By the way, good luck, Darkoneko ! Grimlock 08:20, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
    I don't think that comment silly but meaningless and somehow funny, since 1) Wikimedia community is not going to assign stewards to a specific project, so it cannot happen either he is elected or not, 2) Each french project is enough big to have its bureaucrat so there is no need to have a steward for this purpose and 3) for one exception and sysop only priviledge, their ino steward is considered to be permitted to use his or her priveldge of desysopping on their project. If Darkoneko desysop a French project sysop, he will lose his whole priviledge. That comment expects so what cannot happen. --Aphaia 08:38, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
    Sure, I knew the conditions :). What I (really) meant is that WP is big enough to give the whole wikicommunity a steward. But the humoristic form of my remark seems to be unclear for some people, that is why I "suppressed" it. Grimlock 08:51, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

  3. His trolling and incivility against me here makes it obvious to me that he shouldn't have be trusted with the power and responsiblities the comes with being a steward. -- Karl Meier 19:38, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
  4. Oppose - the diff that Karl Meier points out above is troubling; it is never acceptable, regardless of what you think of the person or situation, to mock another user by saying "blah blah blah" in response to their comments. I expect a steward to be able to respond and comment on situations, no matter how frustratring they are, civilly and reasonably. Thanks. Flcelloguy (A note?) 22:51, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Question from Gribeco

What is it that stewardship will enable you to do? Typically, it allows to help out small projects with few admins, but you're not claiming to participate in them...

Well, it's exact I'm not much on small projects... but it can't really prevent me from helping them, since they only need to ask on the IRC channel (I'm often on IRC) or on the dedicaced meta page if they have a problem. DarkoNeko 16:40, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
answer to the recent "oppose" votes

it's just I don't find a good idea answering just after the vote line, so...)

  • User:Karl Meier : I assume you didn't say that just because I took Bastique's side, so please explains me : what exactly on the words I said is "trolling" ? I merely disagreed with your argumentation. DarkoNeko 13:10, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Flcelloguy, Hillgentleman : I did not intend to "mock" him (at least not according to the definition I found of that word in my bilanguage dictionary), simply disagreing with his argumentation (also, as of yet I don't think anything in particular about that person). DarkoNeko 13:19, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
    Darko Neko, Using bla bla bla to express disagreement is immature. To express disagreement without being able to explain one-self is immature.--Hillgentleman|User Talk 13:37, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

  35. Since we're both from tr.wiki, you may think that i'm advertising, but i'm gonna be pretty honest about his qualities a person and a wikimedian. He is the most devoted Wikimedian i've seen yet and i've seen noone more (including myself) loyal to the wikiphilosophy than him. He sticks to it so much, he becomes even annoying time to time. He cares for the small projects, watches out for them and as an organizer (yet another word for sysop) he always tries to resolve the disputes, instead of slapping both sides and telling them not do repeat it. He has done more than enough for meta and cross-project relations. Although there are wonderful candidates, i strongly believe that giving him the job is a right thing to do.--Vito Genovese 15:32, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Question from Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington

  • Looks like several candidates have got oppose votes and neutrals because of "limited activity/experience on Meta". Do you think it is mandatory for a steward to have a high editcount on Meta? Why or why not? 12:08, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
I think the point of view is wrong. Certainly stewards will have to be involved on meta much more than before, but raw numeric count is not the way to determine if a candidate will be able to help or not, but the disposition and quality of the edits, the willing to help the foundation, etc. Besidesm stewards should also remain active on their native projects, meta shouldn't be an isolated island, but should be deeply connected to the local projects, and people on the local projects should be more aware of meta work. drini 17:51, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

    Comment: I do not understand the opposes, I have been told perhaps they are people who hold a grudge over an RfA vote, or some vandalism reversion, or something similar. I think oppose votes should if possible give some reason so that the candidate can improve, or at least understand the issues... Lar 19:39, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

    You'd better saying nothing than such things. I personally asked Ant to desysop me because of personal attacks aimed at me, which you were not unknown (ie mostly responsible for), and this had absolutely nothing to see with guillom. Manchot 17:35, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
    This assertions are incredible. Once again, an user from WP fr dares to give this type of biasful interpretation of a vote against a appliance. I strongly suggest him (because it's not the first time I can see that) to go down to read his friend comment on my vote, which is unacceptable. You can not assume that an user does not agree with your point of view. For my own case, you can see that I support the Darkoneko appliance ... And he has voted against my appliance on WP fr. You should think about it before writing such thing. Grimlock 18:35, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Optional questions from Shyam Bihari for the candidate (not necessary to answer)
  1. Do you have enough time for stewardship?
    Thanks for your questions. I devote much time to Wikimedia and currently I'm quite much active on meta, where requests for permissions happen. I am also much available on IRC for emergencies and stewards tools would be useful for fighting/cleaning vandalism on small projects (see #wikimedia-swmt on freenode).
  2. If a bureaucrat does not follow the proper procedure for sysoping a candidate and the candidate gets the tools, even he does not deserve them according to RfA procedure. What would you do? You will de-sysop the user? You will take action against the bureaucrat? or any other action, please mention.
    What would I do? Nothing. Stewards are not cops. If the sysop starts mass-deleting content, then there would be an emergency and if someone from the local project asks it, I would desysop him. If there isn't any emergency, this is a local problem. The local community has to organize a vote or something to decide if the bureaucrat has abused his powers, if his bureaucratship should be removed, if the adminship should be removed, and so on. Stewards apply decisions from the local comunities, they don't make decisions. guillom 10:13, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Question from Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington

  • Looks like several candidates have got oppose votes and neutrals because of "limited activity/experience on Meta". Do you think it is mandatory for a steward to have a high editcount on Meta? Why or why not? 12:06, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
    Hello. I don't think it's mandatory, I think it's a good thing for a steward to be aware of what happens in the Wikimedia community, and Meta, as a coordination wiki, is a good place for this. Meta is also a good place to deal with multilingualism. This said, bastique's editcount on meta isn't high but I know he will be a good steward because he is a very active user and bureaucrat on Commons, which is also a good place to deal with users from many projects. guillom 12:32, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
    And i would like to add that I had written this answer before Bastique did ;) guillom 08:25, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

  63. I know Lar on IRC, but I was never particularly aware of him on-wiki. After looking through his contributions, though, I do believe that he would be a good steward. Various comments show willingness to discuss and recognize others' efforts and help others, empathy for others' frustrations and the ability to cheer them up, and a good enough sense of humour to welcome cacti. His unilingualism isn't necessarily a disadvantage. I idle in the steward channel, and very often someone who speaks English needs help when there is no steward active; ergo, we need many more English stewards. Although I'd prefer experience with inter-project coordination beyond Commons, presumably he'll get more of that doing his steward duties. :) —{admin} Pathoschild 08:26, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

    I'm sorry, but I don't see the relationship of an admin willing to stand for voluntary deadminship versus being forced to do so by policy. The statement doesn't appear to mesh with his statement of "I embrace the idea that stewards seek out and act on community consensus and do not decide things for themselves" nor does his position seem to violate Steward policies, as voluntary desysops have been requested in the past and are rather routine. Would you be willing to clarify your position? ~Kylu (u|t) 05:22, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
  3. I would like to see both more experience and activity on Meta (you have less than 30 edits prior to this month); stewards are going to be heavily active on Meta, and time and experience is critical. Also, being able to communicate (through writing) in multiple languages is considered a "bonus" for stewards because of the global nature of the project, and I don't think this role will suit you at the present time. This vote isn't because I don't trust you, it's simply because I prefer more time and experience for stewards. Thanks for your understanding! Flcelloguy (A note?) 01:35, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

    I oppose threaded talk in voting. My user page says it all. IRC is the social networking that is alien to an encyclopedia, especially Wikipedia: favourable for cults of personality and basically untraceable. IRC regulars normally evolve in the direction of "everything untraceable on IRC so you can be as mean as you want" philosophy. A closed chatroom is poison of every encyclopaedic effort. It is the heartworm of Wikipedia. --Ghirlandajo 14:39, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
    You seem to be opposed to everything that makes wikimedia great :-( Kim Bruning 17:20, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
    So, you think that it is IRC that makes Wikimedia "great"? If so many people suppose their spending day and night on IRC (rather than tackling admin backlogs on WP) is imperial for moving the project forward, I advise to shut IRC down for a week and two and see what happens. I suspect that we'll see backlogs eliminated, civility improved, and quality of the articles advanced by scores of IRC regulars who now engage in chit-chatting there all day long. --Ghirlandajo 09:13, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
    Actually, this is not Wikipedia. This is Wikimedia Meta-wiki, which supports Wikiquote, Wikinews (which is quite up-to-the-minute responsive), and other projects. The Stewards are functionaries involved in making decisions requiring, at times, immediate access to them. Stewards don't generally make edits on Meta constantly, nor do they continually refresh their Meta talkpage to see if anyone wants them. I'd suggest that anyone wanting to be a Steward who does not have IRC access and the willingness to use it should at the very least subscribe to the RSS feed of their talkpage and keep a weather-eye upon it. If you want to make sure IRC isn't abused, your best bet is to join and watch, not ignore it and tell everyone else they shouldn't be involved either. What people do outside of the Wiki is quite frankly not anyone else's business, nor should it be. ~Kylu (u|t) 00:57, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
    So Kelly Martin insulting fellow wikipedians from her blog is quite OK now? I find this approach deeply hypocritical. Furthermore, the channel is regularly (ab)used to slander on-wiki opponents and to incite their blocks, a situation which you and Lar know better than anyone and seem to approve. For instance, I know that my name was repeatedly abused on IRC, since the channel is not subject to stringent civility requirements that are in effect on-wiki. Unlike many (most?) others here and contrary to your advice, I don't want my IRC logs to be longer than my WP contributions and I don't wish that to Lar. --Ghirlandajo 09:09, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
    I'll reply to this on your talkpage, the threading is getting a bit deep. (Anyone who wants to read it, though, feel free.) ~Kylu (u|t) 06:06, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
  16. Oppose: Language limitations, also I am concerned that so many of his IRC friends above are challenging voters. This may be of sign of things to come if he were elected.

    It's called meatball:DefendEachOther, is it not? --pfctdayelise 13:44, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
    The above response is typical of the behaviour of Lar and his IRC friends on English Wikipedia. I had decided not to vote but the behaviour of certain IRC members here altered my mind. I do not intend rising to their bait here. I advise other voters when challenged to similarly ignore, and remember this is an election not a place for threaded comment. People must not feel too intimidated to cast their vote freely. Giano II 14:07, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
    Giano, I respect your contributions to wikimedia projects greatly, but I think that in this case you're giving terrible advice; for two reasons: Firstly because a steward who isn't also available and has good standing on irc really isn't going to be very useful, and secondly because threaded discussion is what allows us to form consensus. Kim Bruning 17:20, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
    Apparently it's a poor man who has friends. What about those of us who are only his friends through wikipedia talk pages? Are we evil too? Do we really want to elect a steward who is a complete unknown to the community? Furthermore, while we're on the matter, do you have any reason to believe that Lar will abuse his position because he uses IRC? I see people a little bit further up on this oppose list who use IRC, and I'm not aware that her judgement has suffered any for it. Mackensen (talk) 02:20, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
    This post came about because someone on IRC pointed something out to me. Was that a bad thing? I don't think so at all. But it got me an oppose. I'll stand by my use of IRC anyway. ++Lar: t/c 03:08, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
    How urgent this was? How was IRC needed? There was no urgency whatsoever and the user could have posted the question right here. IRC is needed in very few limited set of instances. It is used and abused for stuff of which vote canvassing and harassing the opponents is not even the most threatening. --Irpen 10:29, 14 December 2006.
    It wasn't necessarily urgent and I agree it could have been communicated a different way. It was just an example of two things... 1) where IRC is useful... someone mentioned it to me that way and I acted. and 2) my approach. Standing up for Giano's right to vote was the correct thing to do for the projects, regardless of the personal impact to me as I had no delusions that doing the right thing would suddenly convert Giano into a supporter. Hope that helps clarify.

  19. Funnily enough given Aaron Brenneman's comment, "puzzled" was just the word that came to my mind too (mutatis mutandis). Very little meta: involvement, near-monoglot, rather contentious metapedian (in the other sense) track-record on en:. As his pitch seems to be largely "trust my judgement": generally speaking I do not. Take for example, his involvement in the en:Wikipedia:State route naming conventions poll, which was in my view heavy-handed, and potentially very-poor-precedent-setting; and his repeated insistence (contrary, and continuing subsequent, to the clarification of intent by the creator of same) on the "serious concept" behind the weak BOFHish humour page "rouge admin" and associated "self-identifying" category. (This latter, as best as I can make it out, seems to be "hardcore IAR", which is also not something I'd especially value in a steward.) Alai 05:34, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
  20. Sorry Lar. I supported you for admin on En:Wiki with the caveat to avoid becoming too political. Advice you politely accepted yet outright rejected.

Question from Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington

  • Looks like several candidates have got oppose votes and neutrals because of "limited activity/experience on Meta". Do you think it is mandatory for a steward to have a high editcount on Meta? Why or why not? 12:06, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Excellent question, I'm glad you asked it. Obviously I don't personally think it is mandatory for a steward to have a high edit count on Meta (which presumably is what is meant by "activity/experience") since I do not. Why not? The Steward role requires watching some pages where requests come, but it is not, in my view, primarily a Meta centric role like, for example, Sysop on Meta ... What I think is more important is whether the candidate has a history of contribution that indicates dedication to the cause of the WMF, positive engagement with other stewards, and committment to monitoring the few pages where requests do come. None of those things are necessarily demonstrated by having a lot of edits or time on Meta, or disproven by not having a lot of edits or time on Meta, in my view. If I didn't think I had already demonstrated that committment or wasn't prepared to spend the time necessary, or couldn't act with the highest integrity and dispassionateness, putting aside my own personal views, I would not be standing for this position. ++Lar: t/c 12:37, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Question from User:Spacebirdy

  • In my personal opinion it is important that stewards know more than one language because we have a lot of projects where English is not the main language and there are people who do not understand English. (I have the impression this topic was more important at the last election). I know, You are not the only candidate this time who does only speak one other language at level 1, but I would like to hear what You have to say about this, thank You. Best regards --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 16:31, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Excellent question, thanks. (If I had my life to live over, I would have paid much better attention to my parents so my German would be better... it still does get better with practice when I use it consistently... but I won't claim it is better than it is.) I think it is mandatory that we have a mix of stewards that, in total, cover all of the major languages. I think it is beneficial, but not mandatory, that any given steward have more than one language that they are proficient in. I don't think it is an insurmountable handicap to only speak English proficiently, given the number of volunteers (such as yourself, thank you for translating my statement in to de for me!) that help translate things, the prevalence of English as a second language especially among those that are in important positions in non english wikis, and the expected workload. (although I can't do stewardy things on en:wp or on commons, as those are my home wikis where I am an admin, there are still a large number of english wikis that need help) If I had thought this was an insurmountable issue I would not have stood. I am confident that we will end up with a good mix of new (and old) stewards to give good coverage of non english as well as english wikis. Hope that helps. ++Lar: t/c 18:12, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
      • Are you going to improve your command in German? Are you willing to learn another language? If so, which would you prefer? --Hillgentleman|User Talk 12:04, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
        • I'm 47... (that's how I got 20+ years of experience in online communities, after all...) and that is rather old to learn new languages well. I have found that using my German (I've done projects in Germany and Switzerland) made it get better, but the improvement was temporary. I'm certainly going to try to start using my German more (I do have an userid at de:wp and have posted there a little) but I can't promise it will get better enough that I can talk about technical matters successfully. That's why I have my de marked as de-1. Hope that helps, thanks for asking.++Lar: t/c 21:13, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

  99. Dear sir, I am happy I   Support you. This is due to a simple equation: helping to build Sicilian wikipedia+Pippu's support+Belinzona's support= Clamengh's support.

    I hope you will honour me by reading the following little note. I would be honoured as well by any user who will decide to spend some minutes of her/his time to read it.

    Lombard community is seeking collaboration with both CH and ITA chapters (no matter whatever idea each user may have about the concept itself of national chapter), without making damage to its own tongue: and with appropriate counterparts, it will eventually succeed. So, the correct approach to discuss this issue is starting a calm discussion here on meta. I am afraid there will be a lot of disagreement (or maybe there will not: but we should be ready to this) in this discussion, so I trust you as a steward. Also, there are some obstacles more along this way: the way to cope with them will have to be found, in a collaborative spirit. I do appreciate your statements about recently created projects, so I will submit you the following issue about the recently approved (but not yet created) Ladin wikipedia.

    Ladin speakers are about 30.000, fragmented into five dialects. Probably, LLD wikipedia will be small for a bit, and there will be a little number of edits. This is a simple matter of numbers, i.e., e.g.:

    • Lombard tongue has a basin of potential speakers consisting in 10.000.000 people. Due to language devastation, you should count around 10% of them. All in all, that's always 1.000.000 fluent speakers, i.e. more then 30times Ladin tongue.
    • Linguistic self consciousness of Lombard people is much lower than Ladin's: so, please, count about 300.000 fluent and Ladin-equivalent self conscious speakers: 10 times more than Ladin (BTW, I am not happy of this, for both Lombard and Ladin).

    This community will need a lot of help, even much more than Cisalpine wikipediae.

    But they are likely to refuse any explicit link with the Italian chapter, since they traditionally refer to the German-speaking area, and since they have undergone several attempt of assimilation to Italian culture, alas, duri--Kemmótar 15:09, 13 December 2006 (UTC)ng the fascist period: so you can guess by which kind of methods. All in all, at the moment LMO community refuses such a link as well, though for different reasons. (At present collaboration with the CH chapter seems to be made difficult by this obstacle: the portal [www.wikipedia.ch www.wikipedia.ch] dos not even mention Francoprovençal and Lombard: either this is a careless-mistake (and thus it should be soon corrrected) or it is explicit discrimination: in this case this should be soon reported to the board.) But LMO community seems to be strong and compact, even to a larger extent than one could have expected. Needless to say LLD.WP community is likely to be weak instead, even if much more self conscious. So a particular surveillance against vandalism should be set up (needles to say, I am ready to help). And the notion of vandalism should be clearly stated: i.e. I think we should state that, given the existing approved 'XXX' project, one could criticise it on meta or everywhere appropriated, but saying, within that project (and only there)

    • "the language XXX does not exist"
    • there should be a wikipedia for each one of the YY dialects of XXX

    should be considered vandalism (On the contrary, the last sentence should of course be allowed here on meta as a request for new languages). Why? Well, that's simple: users will be in general attempted to reply, and the situation will be likely to degenerate, so users will not be writing articles or they will get bored or annoyed with the project, which will die.

    It should be also stated that each project is meant in a specific language (even if most users are likely to speak another language), while for multilingual collaboration the correct place is meta. Thank you for the time you spent. Best regards,--clamengh 13:37, 12 December 2006 (UTC), sorry I did not sign.

  •   Neutral I could transform this neutral vote into a support if I knew that you explicitely support wikiprojects in minority languages, and that you are aware that many mistakes (in good faith, even raising flames) could be done by everybody while a minority is defending itself from attempts of assimilation. Thank you.--Moch 18:14, 9 December 2006 (UTC) Really a posh answer. I feel honoured by your attention and your behaviour. M7 for president! Thanks to Pippudoz as well. I will add a personal note: probably people like you allow a bit of optimism about the future of Italy (which at present, in my view, is short, due to compression of wages. Short, with respect to the historical scale of course.)
    I support Wikimedia projects in minority languages. I felt necessary, in order to avoid speaking up for myself, to ask for a word by one of the bureaucrats at scn.wiki. Thank you for your attention. --M/ 01:06, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
    Hi Moch, as M7 has said above, he left a message with me to speak directly to this issue. I helped set up scn.wiki just over 2 years ago. I did so as someone who was completely new to wikipedia, so I remember to this day most of the users from around the traps who were very helpful in those bewildering early days. Speaking from my own experience, I have found M7 to be extremely supportive, being very generous with his time to provide both technical and moral support, and also being welcoming to the project as a whole. It should be understood that the concept of a Sicilian language wikipedia was, and in some circles remains still, a controversial concept. So I can assure you that M7's support meant a lot to me, and my colleagues, at the time. We have now grown to over 7,200 articles and pretty much are self-contained these days. There are about 10 wikipedians from outside scn.wiki who helped us reach this standard, and I definitely include M7 amongst that number. Thanks. pippudoz - (waarom? jus'b'coz!) 05:13, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
    Yes, it would be interesting to know something more explicit about M7's attitude towards Wikipedia projects such as the Ladin, Friulian, Ligurian, Lombard or Piedmontese Wikipedia.--Kemmótar 02:15, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
    M7 loves all Wikimedia projects indistinctly. --Snowdog 12:15, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
    These projects are even more recent, so I think that they deserve a high level of support from the whole Wikimedian community. --M/ 12:23, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
    I agree with you. You have my support (but I'll write it in the proper place :-) )--Kemmótar 15:09, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

  33. Wulfson 07:41, 26 November 2006 (UTC) As far as I can see, many of the current votes against MaxSem come from RuWP users that at one time or another happened to break certain rules and received a warning or were blocked by MaxSem, who acted in his capacity as sysop and was supported in his actions by the overwhelming majority of the RuWP sysop community.
    Overwhelming being an apt term. Well put, Wulfson. But perhaps the Wikimedia Foundation would not like to see one of their stewards trying to overwhelm his or her opponents every so often, and in a habitual manner of the RuWP sysop community, too. --Dart evader 08:17, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
    I'm glad to see, dear Dart, that you happen to be able to make yourself understood here without using as many obscenities as you were apt to do in RuWP before you were blocked indefinitely for a second time within a year. Oh yes, I recall - it was MaxSem that did it. Perhaps this is the true reason for your activity. Wulfson 17:55, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
    Yes, yes, of course. My true reason is not worse than yours. Tell me: why, oh why would the RuWP sysop community so fervently desire to make one of their own a Wikimedia steward? I daresay I know the answer: a pocket steward, with his absolute IP-checking abilities, is an ideal weapon for tracking down opponents, and, perhaps, even pursuing them, legally or illegally. I can remember that you, Wulfson, personally threatened to find some user at his home and, perhaps, punish him somehow. I can even remember the word винтовка (a rifle) having been blurted. Dart evader 21:37, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
    We have many good sysops here, so I would support any of them as our representative. MaxSem was simply the first one that came forward. Assume good intentions, my dear Dart! As for the "rifle" - that was a figure of speech. Or can you produce a dead body to match my declaration? You are going to make reasonable public scared. Wulfson 18:31, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
    I cannot "produce" a dead body, of course. However, the threats looked very ugly. And Maxsem is not so good as a sysop, I'm afraid. The problem is that he just likes to exercise his sysop powers. He likes to block people for a week or a month for petty (or even non-existent) offences. He likes to look bold. And all these qualities are not good for a steward, in my opinion. Dart evader 19:06, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
    It's true Wulfson is well-known as check-user who makes checking without any reason ) If RuWiki sysop's gang will have a pocket steward then RuWiki will be branch of KGB-FSB :-) Nevermind 22:25, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
    It's funny to see you both hiding here after you appeared to be unable to live in peace with other RuWP users - but I think you are wasting your resources, for it is not me or my character this voting is about - by the way, ask your buddy Dart Evader how it happened that he, of all men, proposed me for a sysop last August after all the bad things about me he seems to be recalling now - human memory is a strange thing, isn't it? Wulfson 18:31, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
    Firstly you and sysop's gang are not "RuWP users". Secondly, "Cujusvis hominis est errare; nullius, nisi insipientis in errore perseverare"("каждому человеку свойственно ошибаться, но только глупцу свойственно упорствовать в ошибке" =) Nevermind 19:31, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
    Yes, yes, I was assuming good faith, as usual. And I know now that I was mistaken. And I'm not going to assume good faith in the case of MaxSem. It would be too stupid of me to repeat such a cruel mistake. Dart evader 19:14, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
    The picture that Wulfson is trying to paint is misleading. According to the Arbitration Committee judgement, MaxSem clearly violated the rules by blocking a user for one week without any reasonable justification. Wulfson himself and user Codemonk (see above) were recently pronounced guilty by the Arbitration Committee for violating the privacy policy. In addition, Wulfson, Codemonk, MaxSem and Andyvolykhov are the fans of "Spartak", so they always vote for each other. SA ru 05:51, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
    Applause. Sorry I didn't catch your first name - but the last time I recall anyone accusing me for being a fan of the same team with anyone else it was someone known in RuWP by the name of Smartass. The similarity is too obvious. As for being pronounced guilty by the Arbitration Committee for anything, that's a lie, intended for people who are not aware of what is actually going on. Produce a diff or take back your words. Wulfson 17:55, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
    Wulfson, there is no need for guessing his name. Look at his personal page. He is Smartass, and he makes no secret of that. Dart evader 21:53, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
    For those who are interested in the details, here is the ruling of the Arbitration Committee that clearly warns Wulfson and CodeMonk that the next time they organize illegal investigations against the users they will be out: [11]. --SA ru 15:18, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
    And here is the ruling against MaxSem: [12] . This story is actually quite revealing. MaxSem blocked me for "agitation" in favor of an Arbitration Committee candidate. (Someone whom he personally did not like.) The Arbitration Committee concluded that he clearly violated the rules. --SA ru 15:25, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

    It's standart manner of "the most reasonable and reliable members of Russian wiki community" :-) Opponents are accused as "xenophobic" to stop a discussion, yeah...

    I would like to clarify for those who do not know Russian well enough that the above Russian phrase represents a personal insult (slightly changing the family name to get a word with a suggestive connotation) - this is exactly the kind of personal attacks (using obscenities against GLBT users) for which our free-thinking Nevermind was banned from RuWP. When using English, he appears (or tries being) more civilized than he truly is - Wulfson 11:18, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
    Really? I have been assured it's him native last name, maybe I'm wrong. But why did you lie, Wulfson(кстати, Ваш ник кажется можно перевести как "сукин сын" ))? Who is GLBT user - Boleslav1 or CodeMonk who blocked me because I had changed title in discussion page? Nevermind 20:30, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
    Your assumptions are wrong - Wulf is a wolf, and not a dog. Anyway, I don't care about what you call me - I've already been called too many different names to care about one more. As for personal attacks in RuWP, I think you are aware what I'm referring to. 195.16.63.126 13:34, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

  17.   Oppose, because of associated history of what looks very much like repeated administrative rights abuse at ru-wiki (it may be considered okay there, and it's their right, but I'd rather not have such trigger-happy people granted adminsitrative power on other wiki projects). --int19h 11:16, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
  18.   Oppose because of his support vote in RfA request on ruwiki for user OckhamTheFox who seriously violated privacy policy by publishing private information about another user Asp in Wikipedia (OckhamTheFox was not indefinetly blocked only because Asp agreed not to demand block for this). So, MaxSem thinks that privacy policy violation isn't serious? We needn't such a steward. Edward Chernenko 12:23, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
    That is lie, that was not personal information, he linked at this project himself, and no administrator wanted to block him. --AndyVolykhov 16:55, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

    To make things clear, AndyVolykhov is one of the supporters of Wikipedia in so-called "Siberian language", which is vandalism and stupid joke. That means he simply doesn't know (or don't want to know) basic Wikipedia policies. Edward Chernenko 19:57, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
    I think we should forget about conflicts of ruWiki on Meta. Это уже слишком. То, что Волыхов поддерживает Сибиропедию, ещё не позволяет характеризовать его однозначно отрицательно. --Altes 18:49, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

  5. A very potential new user. I have worked a bit with him/her in fi-wiki and have had absolutely no problems whatsoever. However, virtually nonexistant experience in any larger project makes it impossible for me to vote support. The stewardship is, after all, one of the most crucial roles in the whole Wikimedia universe. The user will most likely become a good steward in the future, probably already in the next elections. --Jannex 22:13, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Comment: I think Tbone and Joonasl has no valid reasons to vote against Mzlla. Their votes is placed only because Mzlla found evidence of Joonasl's personal attacks in fi.WP. Mzlla is more active in other finnish projects. --Taulapaa 17:17, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

I agree with Taulapaa. Wikipedia is not only wikimediaproject--Tigru 06:14, 3 December 2006 (UTC)
I am an admin, byrocrat and check user for fi.wikipedia. I want that the Finnish steward will have knowledge of using fi.wiki. For me, it means that for stewardship one must be at least as qualified as an admin. Other Finnish Wikimediaprojects have their own merit but unfortunately those projects have totally only a handful of contributors. As said, Mzlla is a good user, possible future steward.

Mzlla is an admin at least in 2 fi.wikis, and a bureaucrat in one, so I think that Mzlla has enough experience as an admin in these projects. They are smaller than fi.wikipedia, but with users like Mzlla, they can be at least as succesful as fi.wikipedia. --Icepenguin 18:47, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

  1. Oppose - generic vote against Anglo-American focus of all wiki-projects. -- Goldie ± (talk) 04:50, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
    Moved here from User talk:Bggoldie (please do not split the discussion into multiple pages)
    • Hello Bggoldie. Could you please explain your vote about 'Anglo-American focus of all wiki-projects'? I'm a bilingual Canadian from the francophone province of Québec. Although I am North American (the continent), I don't consider myself to be American (the nation, which I assume you mean). Canada is a very multicultural country, and I do not think living here provides a bias towards any one culture. Shanel, whom you've also voted against, is an anglophone Canadian. :) —{admin} Pathoschild 05:15, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
      Common, lets use common sense. In the beginning of the voting section I read "Languages: en, fr-3" (bold text preserved). So you are native English-speaker, right (anglophone, sorry). Quick lookup at French Wikipedia returns 10 (yes, ten) edits, and 7 of them (wow, that's 70% ;)) are in your userspace. Unless you prove somehow a First Nations descent, the multiculturalism is caried by someone else, and not by you.
      As per the term "American", I see in your post only a proof for that twisted mindset. For me, living on the other side of The Great Pond, "American" means any citizen of the Americas. In that aspect the Canadians are rather funny - it seems that you try to deny all the time any influence by US-culture, and at the same time the equation "American=U.S.A." is engraved in your minds. So living in Canada, which AFAIK is in N.America, you ought to be American, and not some sort of FSM (I hope you will understand the latter as a friendly joke, and will not get so offended as from the discussed term).
      For me, "Anglo" is the main carrier of the meaning, and it includes all countries where English language is a major cultural influencer. Beyond UK and US, for me it is as wide as the British Commonwealth. I am adding the redundant "-American" part just to complete the name of that familiar topic in Wiki-projects. -- Goldie ± (talk) 09:55, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Question from Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington

  • Looks like several candidates have got oppose votes and neutrals because of "limited activity/experience on Meta". Do you think it is mandatory for a steward to have a high editcount on Meta? Why or why not? 12:06, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
    Activity on Meta often shows an interest in multi-project and multilingual coordination, since most pages are intended for that, and that is a very useful trait in a steward. However, it's quite possible for a user to have many edits on Meta yet have no experience whatsoever with multi-project or multilingual coordination (for example, users editing extension pages). Similarly, it's quite possible to have no edits at all on Meta yet have much multi-project or multilingual experience (for example, a user active on the Wikimedia Commons). Much like edit counting in general, it's a good indication only if it is considered intelligently rather than as a simple metric. —{admin} Pathoschild 17:58, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

I am Brazilian, and my native language is Portuguese (hence the pt-N in my nom). I learned English as a foreign language, same as with the other 9 languages (other than Portuguese) that I have knowledge of (on various levels). Redux 14:38, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
Congratulations, you are the the only person smart enough to hold the discussion public, replying here instead of stealthy tactics on talk pages!
Unfortunately you've passed successfully only the minor test but failed on the main one: you donated between 250 and 500 edits to Portugese Wikipedia, less than 50 edits to Spanish one, and have negligible contributions to all other projects. Honestly I was surprised to see in your matrix the rows about Portugese Wiktionary with 1 edit to your own user page and Romanian Wikipedia with 0 (zero) edits. It is even weirder that your pt.wikt page is formatted as a good dictionary entry while there is no article for redux/Redux!
I really admire your devotion to learn many languages. However my conclusion is that out of over 180 mln. Brazilians we got one striving to be English. It seems that Hillgentleman and I share the same view what American means, and hopefully you will understand why I am accusing you of being Anglo-one. Sorry for saying anything about personal details but to achieve (and maintain) near-native level of English you have to live somewhere outside Brasil. -- Goldie ± (talk) 12:13, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
I respect your opinion, but not being heavily active on certain projects, or not being highly active on many projects, or even regularly active on said projects, doesn't mean necessarily that someone doesn't relate to them. I'm quite familiar with many smaller projects, particularly with those in languages where I have X-2 or higher proficiency (and especially with all the projects in Portuguese, with which I'm very well acquainted, even if not editing regularly).
About the accounts you mentioned, they are in the Matrix because they exist, even if inactive. I created accounts on many projects where I would be able to understand and move around in case I should ever want/need to do any kind of work there. I was laying the ground for a cross-project identity. Naturally, this was made somewhat obsolete by the perspective of the Single Login specification, but by then, I had already created most of the accounts.
Finally, I do not live outside of Brazil; if you check my userpage on enwiki, you'll see that I inform that my timezone is GMT −3, which is Brazil's timezone (or rather, one of them). Redux 17:18, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
I am very satisfied with Redux's openness and politeness, and am considering him a rather good candidate for a steward. My objections of him being Anglo-centric still do apply, and I hope he will not increase the inevitable bias of the stewards team. So am changing my vote to neutral. -- Goldie ± (talk) 16:03, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Question from Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington

  • Looks like several candidates have got oppose votes and neutrals because of "limited activity/experience on Meta". Do you think it is mandatory for a steward to have a high editcount on Meta? Why or why not? 12:06, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
I believe that an edit count is being used by participants as a possible indicator of the candidates' acquaintance with their prospective place of work, and with the work itself. Whether or not the candidates know the place where they would be working is a question that is part of a larger question, which is whether or not the candidates understand the job, what it entails and how to perform it well. In answering that, experience on Meta can be important, since it is the place where all projects meet, and it is a place for coordinating efforts that can affect a larger number of projects. But this is a part of the equation, and other factors are relevant, such as trustworthyness, experience and commitment to the Foundation. In light of that, I do not believe that the editcount itself should be mandatory, rather it is an element that participants may or may not use to decide. Redux 14:26, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

    No. I want more stewards whose native languages are not English. I do not want more stewards from the English Wikipedia. Five of the 16 active stewards are from the English Wikipedia. If we take the hypothetical analogue of united nations security council, then I would vote against Canada if Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Great Britain, and the United States were already represented. See my discussion page.--Hillgentleman|User Talk 06:34, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

    Yann, I am not sure what your anti-English Wikipedia POV means. I am not sure if it refer to my position. But let me clarify my position: I love the English Wikipedia. I appreciate all the contributions. I use it often. However, the English Wikipedia is already well represented in the team of active stewards. We need more representatives from elsewhere.---Hillgentleman|User Talk 14:58, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
    Denying English speaking stewards will not bring more non English speaking stewards. To me, this kind of requirements is a discrimination against English speaking candidates, just because of their mother tongue. Yann 15:01, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
    • No. For example, Shanel is an Indian. If her language proficiency said "English-N, Hindi-4" (or even better, "English-N Hindi-N") then I would have voted for her. I want more point of views represented in the team of stewards. Lacking the language profiency makes the candidate incapable of understanding other cultures deeply. If some of the active native-English stewards resigns, I would reconsider.--Hillgentleman|User Talk 15:08, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
    • As you know it well, the stewardship is not a prize for outstanding achievement. It is a job to be done. It should go to competent hands. I consider language as an important indicator of competence.--Hillgentleman|User Talk 15:10, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
    It is not about discrimination, it is about value. I personally deny that increasing the number of English-speaking stewards will bring in any significant value. Moreover, from my POV it would provide fake impression of having enough stewards while there is actually a lack of them. Theoretically (and only in theory) if the stewards were supposed to be some sort of bookkeepers just counting the icons with plus and minus signs, IM(nsH)O the Foundation is having no need for more stewards (please avoid to assume I am accusing the stewards in anything). I assume the stewards have to understand, sometimes even investigate, before taking any action. To understand something a person needs knowledge, experience, and a way to communicate. So the obstacle is in the latter - how can one knowledgeable in English-only communicate with non-English speakers. I hope you do not proclaim that the only official language is English, and all comments expressed in other languages are void!? -- Goldie ± (talk) 15:34, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

  63. While I'm not sure copious use of oversight is a great qualification, especially given that we necessarily can't verify their necessity and appropriateness, record as a 'crat seems OK. (Am also curious as to what the long list of terse opposes have as a concern...) Alai 22:34, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Question from Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington

  • Looks like several candidates have got oppose votes and neutrals because of "limited activity/experience on Meta". Do you think it is mandatory for a steward to have a high editcount on Meta? Why or why not? 12:06, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
  • I've always thought edit count is at best a moderate indicator of experience; quality of edits and intangibles such as trustworthiness are much more important. But also many if not most other types edits on meta don't translate very closely to the activities of a steward. Bureaucrat activities on active projects have a bit more correlation so that helps, but those also do not have full overlap. Trustworthiness and dedication to furthering the foundation's causes is much more important. - Taxman 20:38, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
