Steward Elections.Edit

That's funny.. I thought all stewards were re-elected every term? But when I went to look for your name, it wasn't there :/ Oh well.. I would've voted for you, if you were on the list.. purely because you're awesome :D Take it easy Deon555 10:49, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Hehe, thank you very much. I'm impressed you still remember me.   The stewards are reconfirmed at m:Stewards/confirm, but it's not a vote, more like a...discussion, I guess. Thanks again. Jon Harald Søby 11:43, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Wow.. I'm impressed you remember me! I'm just a single user out of over 8,000,000 registered users on en:WP. Well, I've made some comments over there. Good luck and thanks for remembering me :D --Deon555 07:53, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Thanks for your vote, for or against, and your constructive comments, in my own nomination. My guess is that no matter what I thought being a steward was I would think differently after becoming one. Apteva 18:03, 23 February 2009 (UTC)


Hi, I am an English Wikipedia editor. Somebody took my name on the Norwegian Wikipedia but made no edits. Can you please help me usurp it for my unified login? Chedorlaomer 08:07, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Please drop a request at no:Wikipedia:Overtagelse av brukernavn, it's normally dealt with quite fast. Best regards, Finn Rindahl 10:29, 15 March 2009 (UTC)


Could you please take a look at my request about Mari Wikipedia, and post a comment on it? --Сай 16:27, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

EddieSegoura ban appeal on en.wpEdit

Hello, Jon. en:User:EddieSegoura has requested to have his community ban on the English Wikipedia reviewed. It was mentioned that you were one of the users who frequently dealt with the disruption leading to and following his ban. As an involved party, your comments are invited in the review of his ban, located at en:WP:AN#EddieSegoura Ban Appeal. Thank you for your time. For the English Wikipedia Arbitration Committee, Hersfold (talk) 05:55, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

That's a long time ago, and I don't remember that user at all, so I can't help you, I'm afraid. Jon Harald Søby 13:27, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Mari Wikipedia in IncubatorEdit

Please, take a look at Talk:Language_committee#Requests for approval Meadow Mari Wikipedia. Nobody has answered yet on my last post week ago. --Сай 09:01, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi there! I am glad to inform you, Language committee, that now Mari Wikipedia Incubator commutity has three active not-grayed out editors for last three monthes (look at statistics). So, the last requirement is meet now.
Also I want to add, that there will be a big conference in July, 10. There would be around 150 young mari. I will take part in this conference and intend to talk about Mari Wikipedia to involve more people to contribute. There are more chances that new participants will contribute to Wikipedia than to Incubator. So, I am asking you to consider approval of Mari Wikipedia before the start of conference(before July, 10). As for me, I have some technical skills. I can help you, for example in creating subdomain or in moving pages, etc. And of cource, if you think that mari wikipedia don't have something for final approval, please, write it here immediatly, so we can fix and solve all the problems before July 10.
Please, post your answer here --Сай 05:57, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Steward resignationEdit

I am resigning as a steward. I was elected in January 2006, and was for a time one of the most active stewards, but lately I have come to be more and more inactive. There are a lot of good, new stewards who are doing a tremendous job, and I don't feel that I have that much to contribute with on the steward team ony more. The steward role has also changed quite a bit since I became steward (w:Boiling frog), and I no longer feel confident with the steward tasks. I am also having less time to contribute to the Wikimedia projects (studies, work, social life), and would like to focus my attention a bit more on the projects I enjoy most, instead of having spreading it over too many different roles. This is no goodbye, I'll still be around, just less prominently.   Jon Harald Søby 19:55, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

wish you best in whatsoever you have in mind and again thanks for all your efforts --Mardetanha talk 20:00, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Jon, thank you so much for all your hard work. You are greatly appreciated and I do look forward to working with you more in the future in whatever capacity you are willing to provide. --bastique demandez! 20:07, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Echo what everyone else is saying.... Your advice on the stewards-l mailing list will be missed. Thank you very much for your hard work. Best wishes ++Lar: t/c 20:21, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks guys. I'll stick around.   Jon Harald Søby 22:41, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
You were, and still are one of the better stewards imo. Thanks for serving us as long as you have, and I hope you do well in your studies/life. Majorly talk 22:55, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Hear, hear. Your eloquence and advice on tricky topics has been great, and I hope to see you in other parts of the projects. -- sj | help translate |+ 02:04, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
Silly me.. I missed this :).. anyway, Congratulations for your many years of service. You've been a steward longer than I've been a Wikipedian. Anyway, not to sound like a broken record - but all the best for on (and off)-wiki commitments and your life. Hope to see you again around the tubes! Deon555 14:26, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
I missed too (then I was on a holiday). You were one of the best stewards I've worked with. Happy to learn you've enjoyed life and extend your activities to many good things. I just would like to say thank you for your long time work and let you know I'll be happy to see you in other parts of the projects. Best wishes --Aphaia 03:42, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
Thanks to all of you, you're very kind. Hope to see you in Gdańsk! Jon Harald Søby 14:34, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

Planet WikimediaEdit

Hi, I see that you are a Planet Wikimedia maintainer. Would you like to set up the Italian Planet? I put the list of feeds here, and I expect that almost no changes will be necessary, but since we don't have an official Wikimedia Italia blog such an aggregator would be very useful for us in Italy. Thank you, Nemo 12:43, 21 November 2009 (UTC)


Please, could you do my petition in Meta:Changing username? Thank you--Ula 17:58, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

And here, please. Thank you for all--Ula 18:07, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Notice of removal of adminshipEdit

I regret to inform you that you have been stripped of your administrator access, because you did not indicate your wish to retain it at confirmation page during a week. I'd like to thank you for all great work you have done both as admin and as steward. Kind regards, vvvt 17:40, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Oops. I didn't use it much anymore, so I don't mind. But next time the confirmation shouldn't be in the Easter vacation time – I just got home from my Easter vacation a few days ago, so haven't been able to clear my backlog on stuff to check. I probably would have noticed if I had had Internet access. Jon Harald Søby 13:58, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
If you find you will need the tools again, I'm quite sure a new RfA would be successful, I would vote   Support ;) Finn Rindahl 17:00, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
