  • Personal info: Once again, I am pleased to see that the current body of stewards has, in the main, been able to support the corpus of Wikimedia projects relatively efficiently. I would like to continue supporting the projects as a steward, especially with global renames hopefully arriving this year, as I have years of experience with renames on my home wiki. I will also be serving as a member of the m:Ombudsman commission during 2014. Thank you for your past trust, and I hope to be able to continue to deserve it for this coming year.

  • Personal info: This is my third steward confirmation, as I've been elected in 2011. 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. I also dealt with vandalism and spam and locked and blocked many users and IPs. I also did some 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.

Comments about Barras[edit]

Remove Remove Unhelpful at Simple English Wiktionary, with no response to my questions, and has been a bit incivil. --Goldenburg111 17:24, 15 February 2014 (UTC)[reply]

  • Personal info: Hi all, this is my second confirmation as a steward. It has been an honour to serve as a steward for the past two years and a half (roughly). I have been rather inactive during the later part of 2013, overwhelmed with real life commitments. I appreciate the community's trust in the past and I would like to continue serving the community this year. Hopefully I'll be back to active duty in a month or two. Thanks for your support.

  • Personal info: Hi, I would like to continue helping with steward duties for the next year if the community think that I have contributed as stewards for the past year. Thank you. Addendum: My past roles as stewards has been focused on SRs, and I also stand-by on steward's IRC channel on most days until couple months ago. If I'm confirmed again as a steward, I'm in the process of purchasing a new laptop to replace the broken one, and hopefully using my new machine I could be more active on IRC and answering requests.

  • Personal info: I plan to continue in the role of steward, if the community is willing to confirm me. I have pretty much undertaken the tasks I said that I would, the majority of it in global spam defences. My mop has been active and consistent in my areas of strength, and I have undertaken activities in other areas as required. Stewards have worked cooperatively and respectfully; as a team sharing the work, sharing advice and requesting assistance as necessary, some robust discussions, and it continues to be a harmonious and pleasant group with whom to work, and I commend them for their passion, diligence and efforts. — billinghurst  — billinghurst sDrewth

  • Personal info: Since my last confirmation (2013), I've been very active in dealing with spambot accounts and crosswiki vandalism/abuse. I hope to continue working with my fellow stewards (and new stewards) and also focus on more tasks (such as right changes, etc). --Bsadowski1 (talk) 02:41, 12 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]

  • Personal info: Dear readers,

    I'm one of the longest continuously serving stewards as I was elected back in December 2007. With my broad experience in handling steward actions, I'm not only dealing with almost all kinds of them (mostly via IRC) but also advise new stewards and help as a contact person between stewards, communities and developers. For that purpose, I created help pages and reports for the announced Single User Login finalisation in English and German, held a presentation about global administration at the German AdminConvention and about global administration and tools at Wikimania 2013 (last part by Hoo man; slides, video), had meetups with developers and functionaries involved, created a roadmap for that purpose etc. Looking back at my last year's confirmation page, I'm a bit disappointed in the progress of the SUL finalisation on the part of the Wikimedia Foundation but I'm confident that it will happen this year and I want to pull my weight.

    Last year, my lower activity depended on my master thesis and participation in the Board of Wikimedia Germany. As the latter (besides others) frustrated me a bit, I decided to take a break in September and came back much more actively. Further, my Board term expired and I didn't step up again; additionally, I'll finish my master next month. In the last weeks, I occupied myself with CheckUser activities mostly on loginwiki (in what I was not as experienced as in Oversight rights that I hold on metawiki and which were one my main steward activities) and closed a difficult crosswiki CheckUser case in collaboration with German, French and English CheckUsers. Besides, a couple of German administrators requested a removal of their sysop rights on my user talk page and I granted this request according to our policy which caused a couple of uncontroversial steward actions on one of my homewikis.

    Recently, I became a member of the steward election committee again (a job I did in the last couple of years too) and thus hope to approve some new fellows elected by the global community. I'd be happy to serve the community and my venerable fellows with my experience for the next term. Thank you!

Remove Remove I don't think a user who types about other users in a public wiki is an acceptable candidates, per User:Natuur12 --Goldenburg111 22:58, 17 February 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Ironically, everyone commenting here is typing about other users in a public wiki. ;) Can you please explain why this is any different from just leaving a reason when supporting/opposing? Let me clarify: I respect your opinions. but don't see why this is a reason to oppose. PiRSquared17 (talk) 16:46, 28 February 2014 (UTC)[reply]
