  • Support Support ,he has contributed a lot to Indian football which is the area Im also interested.So I support him—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Shahoodu (talk) 14:06, 10 September 2020
  • Neutral Neutral User certainly has hat-collecting issues. User is self nominating and self supporting (also has a previous RFA, and a self-nom for it in the wrong place at en.wp). The two supports here also appear to have been requested see here [2] and here [3] (not sure if this is canvassing). The user was also taken to en:ANI for CIR issues a few months back. The only reason I'm not opposing this is, there's nothing wrong with someone getting merchandise. Bingobro (Meta-Chat) 10:18, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
Ah, now a 3rd support has been requested and achieved [4] if this is acceptable then good luck to Shishir otherwise I'm leaning towards opposing.Bingobro (Meta-Chat) 15:45, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg Strong oppose As mentioned earlier user has hat collecting issues,a failed RFA self nom in the wrong place, self nom along with a self support, CIR issues (which went to ANI) and requesting supports (canvassing) [5], [6] and [7]. Now that Usernamekiran has brought up the friendship and flirting issues I'm moving my opinion to strong oppose. User probably fails to understand how WP and WMF projects work but wants to become a sysop (even now there is an open thread at en:TH regarding this user wanting to become a sysop). Bingobro (Meta-Chat) 04:18, 11 September 2020 (UTC)
Ah, look folks what I bumped into, Shishir even removed my thoughts when they were "neutral" [8] probably because it didn't look good on a nomination page. Also, the nomination sort of reads like it was made by another user and not Shishir. Bingobro (Meta-Chat) 05:12, 11 September 2020 (UTC)
  • I was not fully aware of the history of the user. I was blinded by the support from two trusted users above. With the issues listed below, I will have to strong oppose this nomination. Asking out a 14-year-old girl is not ok. This platform is not a social media nor an employment website and it should not be treated like one. ~~ CAPTAIN MEDUSAtalk 10:53, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

  • Oppose Oppose, speedy close, and remove. This is abuse of the platform, and puts off other genuine nominations. Rehman 18:02, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg Strong oppose I came to know about this nomination from their canvassing on someone else's talkpage at enwiki. Apart from hat collecting, user is selectively "easy to work with". He has been trying to flirt, has been asking girls for their Facebook/Instagram accounts, and lying while hat collecting. Even after User:Swarm had sternly warned Shishir, they soon requested for the most advanced perm: the template editor flag; and after that, just a couple of days ago, they tried to substitute their user subpage on their userpage. By the way, the page they were trying to substitute didnt even exist. That shows their lack of understanding of technical aspects of wikipedia, "I dont hear it" concerns (asking for the most adanced perm, soon after getting warned). Not sure how a seasoned editor edited like User:Megalibrarygirl ended up supporting them. For the candidate's behaviour/work, they borderline deserve a barnstar; nothing more than that. I had requested them to try to avoid "difficult" or "unusual" vocabulary. I know its not mandatory, I am okay if they continue to do so, but they havent even responded to that comment in any manner. Like I said previously: they are selectively collaborative. I dont know about others, but if this nomination doesnt get closed soon, it will certainly put me off. I am not speaking for myself, but hundreds of other editors like me who edit on random articles; but their contributions go unnoticed because they are not in on particular wikiproject, or because they dont show these edits off. —usernamekiran(talk) 22:55, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
    regarding their claim about commons, all their uploads have been deleted except for one, and their talkpage is full of deletion notices, and warnings.usernamekiran(talk) 00:40, 11 September 2020 (UTC)
  • I'm striking my support. I wasn't aware of the other issues brought up by Usernamekiran. I will say that I have had a good experience working with SHISHIR DUA and I'm changing to nuetral. Megalibrarygirl (talk) 16:42, 11 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Just going to note for the record that the behavior raised here is legitimately concerning but to my relief it looks like it's already being handled appropriately. This user is currently blocked on the English Wikipedia for two weeks, with a final warning that their next block will be indefinite. Concerned users should report future issues so that the warning can be enforced if necessary. Swarm (talk) 03:15, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg Strong oppose per concerns over hat collecting (including requesting GR with no crosswiki experience, and asking for template editor on English Wikipedia to revert vandalism, defeating the whole point), and most importantly this and his block log.
