Hi I'm Fabexplosive, a Wikimedian since Jenuary of 2006 but in my local project (Italian wikipedia) since June of 2005. I am an administrator on the Italian Wikipedia, where I have somewhere 4700 edits. (for verification click here and look the red message on top of page.) I have become more active here on Meta, especially on RfP (I receive a Barnstar) and other translation or put a vandalism template into vandal account. I request sysop status here to aid in helping out. --Fabexplosive 13:15, 28 May 2007 (UTC)withdrawal the voting --Fabexplosive 15:06, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
Oppose - Archiving permissions requests doesn't require the sysop status. I don't trust him enough, nevertheless. --Massimiliano L. 13:57, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
Oppose: poor knowledge of english language (IMHO, fundamental on meta, above all for sysops), no need for sysop status to archive permission requests, no relevant patrolling activity, nothing about spam black list: I think he doesn't need this permission now. Sorry. --Tooby 15:47, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
Good knowledge of English is not fundamental at all. I'm talking to Fabio right now and we're understanding each other perfectly, so it's not like he doesn't understand a word. Majorly (talk) 15:58, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
I don't say he doesn't understand a word: but english language is full of "false friends", and there could be dangerous misunderstandings only because one word (I think to know both italian [Fabex and my native language] and english enough to be conscious of what I'm talking about. I just want to say that he is not ready now, and that he has to improve himself and his english to be a good meta sysop, not a mediocre one. My criticism is for him, not against him. --Tooby 16:55, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
Neutral - Whilst I have nothing to say about the candidate, I am convinced that meta adminship is quite sensible since write access to some global portal and to meta blacklist is given. At this time it seems that there is not a demonstrated need of this tool. --M/ 16:18, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
Neutral, i don't see why he need the adminship here in meta-wiki but i think that he won't kill anyone with the addition-bottoms... after all, i quote M/ 18.104.22.168 16:21, 28 May 2007 (UTC) it was me unlogged, --Filnik 16:22, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
I regretfully oppose.
I've checked his contributions here on meta: apart from the number, not even 250, they are all minor, nothing that request particular judgement or so. None of them are in admin-related tasks.
The user hasn't demonstrated his need for the tools.
The user has pointed to his editcount on the Italian Wikipedia, which isn't that high, and doesn't mean too much here. He has given, in my opinion, too much relevance to a simple numeric data which doesn't mean anything.
If you haven't noticed, all the users that have already taken part in this discussion, except for Majorly, are italian. Why? It's very simple, take a look at Fabexplosive's userpage on itwiki and you will notice a big red announce, which means "My request for adminship on meta has begun!" with the appropriate link. If he put this on his meta user page, I would had no problem. But this request for adminship is about meta, not itwiki, and the users should judge the candidate mainly by what he did or did not here. I see a notice on another wiki as canvassing.
Previous interaction with the user has shown that valepert's comment is somehow true, unfortunately. However it's not a reason to oppose, for me. Not alone, at least.
Trust: apart from my previous interaction with this user (not always good), I haven't got any way to see if the user can be trusted or not. Here on meta, he didn't do anything that can show that the user can be trusted. Of course he hasn't shown that he cannot be trusted either. This is the problem, the user isn't ready for Meta adminship, as his contribute to meta has been only archiving and voting (yes, voting, because he just supported 5 users without stating why).
In conclusion, the user is still too new here on meta to run for adminship, no doubt about it. Snowolf 17:09, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
Oppose virtually active on it.wikipedia only; I agree with previous comments about his need of additional functions. --Brownout(msg) 17:19, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
Oppose - Notwithstanding his really poor English (which, quite frankly, hasn't earned the right to be classified as en-2), I don't really think he'd be fit for the role. Being an administrator on any Wikimedia project requires special qualities (such as calm, moderation, impartiality) that do not really belong to Fabexplosive as of today. Being an administrator on Meta requires twice as strong qualities as a "regular" project, and having known him from his work on the Italian Wikipedia, I understand that there's no real need for him to become a sysop here. So even if he had such qualities as the aforementioned calm, moderation, and impartiality, there would be no absolute reasons for supporting his candidature. Still, it's obviously up to him to prove me wrong. --Emc2 17:25, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
Neutral now. I don't know what he is doing on meta closely, and he seems not to give the reason he needs those tools. In my personal opinion, he'd better to withdraw his request for now; it is noteworthy no meta admin from Italian speaking community support his request. --Aphaia 22:10, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
Neutral I don't have any personal interactions with this user, but the reasons provided in the opposition above are quite substantial. There's no way I can support this RfA at the current time. Nishkid64 (talk) 21:04, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
Neutral, IMHO he doesn't need the adminship. --Frieda 13:35, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
