Call for a couple Stewards to close a discussion

Hey all. We're working out how to ratify the Global bans policy on the talk page and at Global bans/ratification. We're likely to hold either a vite ala the one for global sysops, or an RFC. Per one very sensible request, I just wanted to ask in advance for 2-3 Stewards who would be willing to close the discussion (and thus stay uninvolved in the deliberation). Having a couple volunteers in advance will put everyone's mind at ease I think. Steven Walling (WMF) • talk 20:16, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

You probably mean "a vote", not "a vite"? Ruslik (talk) 06:42, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
The whole "three closers" system is not enshrined in policy even on enwiki, let alone globally. Snowolf How can I help? 09:30, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

User violating block

Thekosher is globally blocked, after being banned by Jimbo from all projects, but, without any appropriate discussion on any noticeboard I can see, has had this block lifted on Commons (no search of the Commons administrators noticeboard shows any discussion of him) and a few other locations. Not only does he get people to pay him to edit wikipedia (w:MyWikiBiz), he also has a history of threatening others. A global ban should not be overridden., particularly without discussion. 86.179.74.155 06:20, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

You're rehashing a two-year old event, as Jimbo said on his enwiki talk page. Drop the stick.--Jasper Deng (talk) 06:28, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
Also, a global lock is a global lock, that's in effect regardless of local blocks. The account cannot be logged into, even if unblocked.--Jasper Deng (talk) 06:29, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
Then how is he editing here? http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Thekohser The account is still globally locked. Obviously, something has gone wrong with the lock, because it's not working to keep him from logging on. 86.179.74.155 09:24, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
That account is unattached from SUL. As the block log shows, a local admin removed the local block in the 25 days when the account wasn't globally locked. Snowolf How can I help? 09:28, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
Well, then, last question: Isn't that basically block evasion? 86.179.74.155 10:12, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
Not at all. This is the decision of the local sysops. You should contact them, but I'm sorry stewards can hardly do something here... -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:14, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

Vandalism raid on tlwiki

No local sysops are available at the moment. See recent changes.--Jasper Deng (talk) 05:19, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Jasper Deng reports that this is done. — billinghurst sDrewth 03:55, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
