  • 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!

  • Informationen zur Person: Liebe Leser,

    seit meiner Wahl im Dezember 2007 bin ich einer der am längsten durchgängig aktiven Stewards. Meine große Erfahrung mit Stewardaktivitäten ermöglicht mir nicht nur, mich in allen möglichen Bereichen zu engagieren (vor allem via IRC), sondern ich unterstütze auch gerne meine Kollegen, vor allem die neuen, und stehe als Kontakt zwischen den Stewards, den Communitys und den Entwickern zur Verfügung. Aus diesem Grunde habe ich Hilfeseiten und Berichte für die angekündigte Single-User-Login-Finalisierung in deutscher und englischer Sprache erstellt, eine Präsentation über die globale Administration bei der deutschen AdminConvention und über globale Administration und Tools auf der Wikimania 2013 gehalten (letzter Teil von Hoo man; Folien, Video), habe mich mit verantwortlichen Entwicklern und Funktionsträgern weltweit ausgetauscht, einen Ablaufplan dafür erstellt usw. Mit Blick auf meine letztjährige Bestätigungsseite bin ich etwas enttäuscht vom Fortschritt der Finalisierung seitens der Wikimedia Foundation, bin jedoch zuversichtlich, dass dies in diesem Jahr geschehen wird – und ich möchte meinen Teil dazu beitragen.

    Meine geringere Aktivität Anfang letzten Jahres erklärt sich durch meine Masterarbeit und mein Engagement im Präsidium von Wikimedia Deutschland. Da mich letzteres (neben anderen Sachen) doch ein wenig frustriert hat, habe ich mich für eine Pause im September entschieden und kam erheblich aktiver wieder zurück. Außerdem ist mein Amtszeit mittlerweile beendet und ich bin nicht erneut angetreten; zudem werde ich nächsten Monat meinen Master abschließen. In den letzten Wochen habe ich mich vor allem mit CheckUser-Aktionen auf loginwiki beschäftigt (mit denen ich noch nicht so viele Erfahrungen wie mit Oversight-Rechten gesammelt hatte, die ich auf metawiki besitze und die eine meiner Hauptaktivitäten als Steward waren) und einen schwierigen internationalen CheckUser-Fall in Zusammenarbeit mit deutschen, französischen und englischen CheckUsern. Daneben haben mich eine ganze Menge deutscher Administratoren auf meiner Diskussionsseite um die Rückgabe ihrer Adminrechte gebeten und ich diese gemäß unseren Richtlinien entfernt, was zu einer gewissen Anzahl an unkontroversen Stewardaktionen in einem meiner Heimatwikis geführt hat.

    Kürzlich wurde ich erneut Mitglied des Stewardwahlkomittees (wo ich in den letzten Jahren schon öfter helfen konnte) und hoffe daher, einige neue von der globalen Gemeinschaft gewählte Kollegen bestätigen zu können. Es wäre eine Freude und Ehre für mich, ihnen und der Gemeinschaft mit meiner Erfahrung im nächsten Jahr dienen zu können. Vielen Dank!

Comments about DerHexer[edit]

  • Keep Keep DerHexer's extensive experience as a steward is very much needed on the team, he has provided historical insight on past practices and their evolution over time many times in the past and is active and very competent. Snowolf How can I help? 18:21, 8 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

      • Just read through it with Google Translate and didn't see any problems. Each candidate was presented neutrally, and then with some pros and cons, and there were no personal attacks. What about this made you change from keep to remove, exactly? Is it the idea, or the actual text (which does not seem to be attacking anyone)? Is your decision based in policy or your own opinion?

        • To me that doesn't seem any different from giving a detailed rational when voting, and is often done by people in large elections. I prefer to give my rational on the voting page (or not at all when there's a closed ballot), but I'm not sure how this is so different. Ajraddatz (Talk) 16:43, 28 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    I agree: the eagerness to vote "Oppose", and his offensive "You're kidding us, aren't you?" comment, is both shocking and disappointing coming from a steward (not to mention a member of the Election Committee). ~ DanielTom (talk) 16:22, 15 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I agree: Barras has done that offensive comment before, the "You're kidding" comment, which sickens me, but does not that much. I feel DerHexer has covered that comment. --Goldenburg111 17:22, 15 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Apologies for once having lost my countenance when I saw this unpromising candidacy for the fifth time. Even though it's the truth, I should not have told it so rudely. —DerHexer (Talk) 16:24, 15 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    How can a sarcastic question be "the truth"? Vogone talk 16:30, 15 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    There was no sarcasm albeit impoliteness: It was as clear as mud that he would fail again, for the fifth time, as he still disrespects the community's unambiguous decision of the past years. I adhere to this view but regret my behaviour in edits and wording as this cannot change anything either. Which is why I am going to propose a limitation of candidacies. —DerHexer (Talk) 17:00, 15 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    All the issues which were brought up in the past were fixable and 1 year isn't that little time to do so. Thus, I don't understand why one needs to oppose without even awaiting the candidate's questions to possible answers etc. to see whether those issues have been fixed but rather to react in a bugged and impolite way. Whether a candidate has changed towards a good direction is something which should be evaluated by the community and not by eligibility limitations, in my opinion. And I clearly don't believe Cekli829 is trying to kid us but rather has some problems to understand the concerns raised and I don't think you have the right to constitute your assumption to be "the truth". Vogone talk 18:10, 15 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I disagree with your view on his candidacies (and by renominating right after the last election he obviously has not fixed one issues which was raised the years before which I critized in a very rude, very impolite way on the wrong place, at the wrong time, in the wrong position) and kindly ask you for accepting my opinion. Besides, this is not the place to discuss limitations or Cekli's candidacy but my work in the past year and whether you trust me for another year. I can see my stupid mistake and regret my misbehaviour. Best regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 18:25, 15 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
