English:

The 2012–13 Confirmation will begin on February 8, and will finish on February 27th.

The 2012–13 Steward Confirmations are a good opportunity to check if we are still happy with our current stewards. To make the process as smooth as possible, here is how things are organized.

To comment, please log in with an account that has edits (on any wiki) before February 1st 2012. During the 2012 Elections, please mention if you are comfortable or unhappy with the use of steward tools of any of the people listed below and why. For example, you may mention inactivity. Inactive stewards, as stated in the steward policies, will lose their steward access.

At the end of the elections, the current and newly elected stewards will consider complaints left on this page, and choose to remove stewardship as necessary taking into account both the comments left by community and their own perspective and understanding of the job. All stewards elected before February 2011 will undergo this process. Confirmation for stewards elected in October 2011 is optional this year because they have not served a full year in their role. They will undergo a compulsory confirmation during the next regular steward elections in 2013.

  • Personal info: Definitely not the most active of Stewards, but every now and again I do come across some Edgar sockpuppet or other situation where Steward action is needed. Since the beginning of 2012 I am a contractor for the Wikimedia Foundation (working in data analysis).

  • Personal info: I am very happy to note that in the past year or so we have had an influx of new stewards from various projects, and as I hope that trend continues, I believe I can still be of use to the greater Wikimedia community as a steward for this coming year. I am reasonably active in steward-related activities, with the majority of my focus on checkuser. I am reachable, and respond, on IRC, meta, and via e-mail. Thank you for your past support, and I hope I remain deserving of your continued trust and support.

  • Personal info: This is my first steward confirmation, as I've only been elected one year ago. I think I've been quite active during this year of services. I've used the steward tools for various purposes, such as helping with crosswiki deletions and blocks (see my global sysop stats). I also dealt with vandalism and spam and locked and blocked many users and IPs. I also did many right changes, mainly to my own account to prevent more abuse and to remove abusive things, but also changed many other people's rights. I usually help everywhere, where help is needed, on IRC and also on-wiki. If you've any question, just ask me.

  • Personal info: Hello. This is my first steward confirmation as well. I have been fairly active in my role as steward (links: steward activity, Meta logs) by doing anti-vandalism/antispam actions such as global locks and global IP blocks. I regularly communicate on IRC responding to requests related to crosswiki vandalism (in the stewards channel). I hope that I can continue working with the current stewards and helping out.

  • Personal info: My general statement isn't that different from last year's : as a steward, I sometimes make a few mistakes but I think I'm not doing a bad work overall.
    For those not aquainted to me yet:
    • My home wiki is frwiki, the french Wikipedia. I arrived in nov. 2004 and became a sysop there in march 2005. I also worked there as a bureaucrat for 3 years (jun 2006 - sep. 2009) but gave up the bit so I could spend more time on other things.
    • I manage a bot named Loveless (see [2] and [3])
    • I became steward at end of 2006. I don't really do steward requests on wiki but rather use my availability time to take care of the emergency people tells us of on IRC (#wikimedia-stewards). My public steward activities (everything but Oversight and Checkuser) are viewable on this page ; those local to meta (like right changes) on this one.

  • Personal info: Still being one of the most active stewards, I could not have been as active as in the last years. On my part, that's mainly caused by a lot of stress at the university and in my real life. I also decided to organize the very successful conference Wikipedia trifft Altertum, worked a bit more on my now featured article de:Laokoon, became a member of the community project budget of Wikimedia Germany and later also a member of the Board. But the main reason because I couldn't be as active as before are my wonderful fellows who did so many useful things more efficiently than I could do in my scarce free time. I'm proud that I could organize the 2011-2 election where we found more helpful fellows who still ask me, as an experienced steward, several times for help. Thank you, my fellows! I'd be happy to serve the community with my experience and free time for the next term, thanks.

  • Personal info: Hi there. I've been a steward since December 2007, so I've got a lot of experience. Now, I know I haven't been using the tools that much lately, but that is mostly because I've had a shift in my life: I'm moved to the capital, got a job and changed my life completely, so I had little time left for much else. Once I fully adapt, I hope I'll be able to enhance my activity as a steward. I had long thoughts about whether I should quit or not, but several wiki-friends dissuaded me. I'll be thankful if I'm given another term to humbly serve Wikimedia and its projects. Thanks.

  • Keep Keep Dungo is a very kind and helpful person, even with those who were not so kind with him in the past. Always careful and with lot of selfcontrol. In situations of great tension, he always stayed calm and objective. He is young, but many older people can learn a lot from him. Strong support. --Maduixa (talk) 09:36, 25 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose Oppose Regardless of such an opening above, I also have experienced a totally opposite approach of Dungodung. We did not have had much conversation for some time and one could say he might have changed in the meantime, of which I would not be as certain as someone who occasionally sees his comments on sr.wiki. I do not expect this vote to have much impact on the confirmation outcome, but I also would make remark that if the voting outcome was all that matters, we would never advance and become better wikipedians. I intended my vote to be warning that certain improvements can be made in the approach, which can be initiated either by the environment, or by the candidate himself. When I notice such improvements, my vote will change. 本 Mihajlo [ talk ] 07:50, 23 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
    I honestly don't know what you're talking about. Can you outline briefly what problems you have noticed in my behaviour/wikiing? You say "improvements", but how can I improve if I don't know what it is that needs improvement. Thanks --FiliP ██ 07:16, 24 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
    For quite some time yet there is a trend that addresses not only the necessity of a fine work that can be measured through the protocolar and other logs on Wikimedia servers, but also makes more demands on existence of strong ethical norms built within a person that has taken the role and acts as a steward not only on the projects but also on other occasions that are of importance for presenting the community under a steward's hood. I would remind the whole auditorium that I only supported Dungodung before 2007 2011, so it would be safe to assume he did a few very wrong moves in the meantime to earn such a vote. I must make remark that, in my very belief, his personality has changed in the way I would take the liberty of finding ethically dislikable. Reading this, I do not really feel encouraged to post here about the things that would be helpful in making my point. Although it does not really surprise me Dungodung *does not remember* what he did wrong when presenting himself as a Steward -- of course, here he can deny every mistake that is not really linkable, and I am not about to give him that joy -- I would assume good faith and offer him simple live talk. There is a whole year till the next vote.本 Mihajlo [ talk ] 22:49, 26 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
    OK, I understand that you have unresolved personal issues with Dungodung, and you voted the way you voted. But why you called a blocked sockpuppeter and his friends to come here to support you?Isn't that pathetic?--Wikit 19:39, 27 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
    I am really displeased there are assumptions tending to reduce my partake in this vote to some low personal level, totally diminishing the need to assume I am acting in best faith -- for which I gave enough space to the best of my belief. As such, those assumptions speak rather of the ones who made them. But this comment above has gone even further to the level I shall classify as irrational shooting in the dark. Oh, I am getting it! The sockpuppeter guy below insults the whole lot of people and then I am the one to be addressed back by the ones who do not only fantasize I called him here, but also are trying to insult me back. I am just not getting how could *I* be called *pathetic* then. :D To elaborate: Thank you for the comment; it tells me how you are thinking and what you are probably doing on the sr.wiki project. 本 Mihajlo [ talk ] 08:11, 29 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
    Како то тврдиш да су дошли по позиву само они који нису изразили сагласност, а ти си дошао спонтано? Зар није доказан супротан пример да су позивани гласачи и са друге википедије? Та „технологија” ти је много блиска. Ово смо гласање пресликали на излед гласања на ср вики и то захваљујући оваквој необјективности.--Sahara (talk) 20:45, 27 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

  • Oppose Oppose Zašto mislim da Dungodung ne zaslužuje mesto stjuarda: - Nezaineresovan je za poboljšanje, dalji razvoj i unapređenje sr.Wikipedije, - krši Wiki pravila u cilju održavanja statusa kvo, - nekorektan je: priča jedno, radi drugo a misli treće, - zloupotrebljava ovlašćenja. Sve u svemu vreme mu je za abdikaciju.--Dusanbasic (talk) 19:22, 26 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
    • Heh, lies said by a user currently blocked on srwiki. --FiliP ██ 19:26, 26 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
      • I could agree with the word 'untrue', but 'lie' sounds too hard. Not only too hard, but it also might be incorrect, in case that the user believes all those allegations are true. Further diplomacy would lead us to the state of weak shock: 'I really do believe those allegations are untrue, and caused by the block you have on sr.wiki. I did not block you, so I would feel so free to assume you might be wanting to further damage sr.wiki by this vote and nothing more. Thanks.' 本 Mihajlo [ talk ] 18:26, 27 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
    • To što je Dusanbasic blokiran je tvoja sramota, istorijat je malo duži. Tvoja prethodna rečenica je jeftin način za diskreditovanje neistomišljenika. Ti i tvoja kamarila dovodite do ratnog stanja na sr. wikipediji. Na sve pozitivne predloge idete đonom a ovde se vajkaš da nema predloga. Ovde vidim ima reizbora, zašto se kod kuće ne založiš za to, nego pravite nedodirljive, a pokušaje uvođenja reizbora blokirate. Pravite od Sr. Wikipedije cirkus. Zar ti glavnu reč i politiku na sr. wikipediji vodi "žena u crnom". Odgovori mi samo na jedno pitanje ako sve ovo ne znaš zašto ne znaš, a ako znaš zašto to činite.--Dusanbasic (talk) 07:34, 27 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
      • It would be nice if you can explain what this has to do with his use of the steward tools, because this is not the place to discuss sr.wp problems as Dungodung doesn't act as a steward on that project. mickit 16:38, 27 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
    • Kad je čovek čestit on svaki posao može čestito da uradi, ako nije onda nastaju problemi. Ovo o čemu pišem, je moralna kategorija što verovatni ni ti, ni on, ni Bokica ne možete da shvatite jer vam to nije blisko. Svoju blokadu strpljivo podnosim pa kad se to završi sve vaše marifetluke ću izneti u javnost ako vas u međuvremenu čestiti korisnici ne počiste ili se sami međusobno ne "pojedete".--Dusanbasic (talk) 17:08, 27 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

  • Personal info: Hello, there. This is my first re-confirmation as a steward, as I was only elected last year. As to my actions, I haven't been quite as active as I would have liked, but nevertheless got together a few steward actions. One of the first actions I did was nudging the people from Portuguese Wikipedia to elect their own bureaucrats, as a project of their size ought to have some. My professional situation has changed recently, which should give me more time to devote to stewardry on Wikipedia. I still believe that as a steward I can be of help to the many small wikis out there.

Comments about Eptalon[edit]

Trijnstel, could you explain why you consider both of these cases to have been emergencies? The dewiki community did not share this judgement. Also the criticism wasn't so much that Eptalon did something that local Checkusers would have done as well, but the clueless way in which he/she tried to reign in in a very complex and high profile case whose eventual completion triggered wide media coverage in German media for weeks and months (this section alone lists 20 press articles).
And yes, we are all human and mistakes happen, but what is important is an ability to learn from them. Contrast this case, where I was happy to vote "support".
I don't question Eptalon's good intentions, but one of the most powerful user rights in Wikimedia projects should not be handed out based on AGF alone. There is a myriad of other ways to contribute which do not require the same level of diligence. Regards, HaeB 22:22, 8 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

  • Personal info: I am very sorry for creating my statement late. I have just returned from active duty with the British Army and have had zero access to the Internet for long periods over the last few months. I am hereby confirming that I am asking for reconfirmation as a steward for another year. I am a strong crosswiki abuse monitor and have many blocks/locks and other protection actions. I have also served the community by doing other steward actions including many checkuser actions. I have also had the opportunity to stand up for members of the community over the past year when incorrect or rash action has been taken against them. I am not liable to be called back to active duty at all over the next 365 days so I will be as active as I used to be. :) Thanks for partaking and understanding!
