  • Personal info: After I was elected last year, I was, I think, quite active in steward areas. I handled requests on all steward requests pages, but especially right requests, global blocks and locks, SUL conflict solving and username changes. I'm also still active in the SWMT, blocking and locking spambots and vandals out of my own initiative or per requests on IRC. Although I have recently for real-life reasons not been able to be online on IRC as frequently as before anymore, I'm still available there and belong to those stewards who run the stewardbot project (soon on Labs, yes, yes). I'm also involved in the Admin activity review and stewards' OTRS queue.

  • Informationen zur Person: Nach meiner Wahl im letzten Jahr war ich, so meine ich doch, im Steward-Bereich recht aktiv. Ich habe mich um Anfragen auf allen "steward-requests"-Seiten gekümmert, aber vor allem um Rechte-Änderungen, globale Sperren, Auflösung von SUL-Problemen und Benutzernamensänderungen. Ich bin auch immer noch im SWMT aktiv, sperre Spambots und Vandalen wenn ich sie selbst antreffe, oder wenn andere es im IRC (z.B. Kanal #wikimedia-stewards) melden. Obwohl ich seit einiger Zeit aus privaten Gründen nicht mehr so häufig wie früher im IRC sein kann, bin ich dort immer noch verfügbar und gehöre zu den Stewards, die das stewardbot-Projekt betreiben (bald natürlich auf Labs...). Ich bin auch bei der Admin activity review und in der OTRS-Queue der Stewards aktiv.

    May I ask why? PiRSquared17 (talk) 23:12, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
    I think that this mistake decision were. --►Cekli829 19:12, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
    @Cekli829: do you know that the "translator" group is only needed if you are going to translate in the MediaWiki namespace? Even though you previously had "translator" privileges, you have 0 edits to the MediaWiki ns. In addition, your nomination and replies to questions did not indicate that you understood that "translator" rights are only for MediaWiki namespace translations. Your answer to a question asking for examples of pages you would use it to translate did not include any MW ns pages. Sorry, but I think MF-W did not make a mistake here; In fact, I think I would have done the same in this situation. Since most messages are on translatewiki.net, where you are already a translator, I really do not see the need for this right. Is there a specific message or group of messages in the MediaWiki namespace of incubator.wikimedia.org that you want to translate? I also think do not think it is good to judge a user based on a single incident such as this. PiRSquared17 (talk) 15:44, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
    OK. Have you been able to convince me. I agree with you. --►Cekli829 06:09, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Remove Remove Rarely active on cu-l, and one of those few emails made it sound like spambot-related reports to the list are annoying to him. Spambot activity is a serious problem, and stewards shouldn't be discouraging the reporting of spambots and their ranges, directly or indirectly, or ignoring them. INeverCry 22:48, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
    I wrote to cu-l once after a day on which you had flooded it with dozens of mails about spambots data; and asked for ways to be able to better sort such e-mails etc. That is because 1.) I often access my e-mail from mobile phone and then can't go to lock the spambots you mail about anyway; 2.) I have found it to be rather pointless to lock most of the spambots, as most of them are of such a configuration that they make exactly one edit and never do anything else again. This I have found to be so after I have checkusered and locked lots of spambots & blocked their IPs since I became a steward. I still do such actions, but many locks are actually of little use. --MF-W 23:04, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
    Dozens? That's not true. I may have posted a few emails and got responses, but I've never posted more than 3 or 4 emails to that list in one day. You're the only steward who posted such an email, and you rarely post or respond there at all. The tone of your email wasn't exactly respectful or considerate either. As for spambots, if you're saying locking IPs/ranges is of little use, you're wrong. I've seen many times when ranges are spammy cross-wiki and over long periods of time. Also, if these get locked, how would you know how many spambot creations that stops? I've even seen quite a few ranges/IPs where spambot activity has continued after blocks and locks have expired. Spambots are going to use available proxies wherever they can be found, so why not lock IPs and ranges with repeated abuse? INeverCry 23:28, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
    It's not possible to lock IPs. I still think blocking abused IPs is of use. --MF-W 23:32, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
    Wow, I said lock instead of block. You scored a point. INeverCry 23:44, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
    Are you sure you think a steward should be removed based on a single disagreement? I think MF-W's dedication to fighting spam is well established, regardless of whatever disagreement on CU-l you two might have had... Snowolf How can I help? 23:37, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
    I do a huge ammount of work with spambots, and I didn't appreciate having my posting to cu-l about it ridiculed and made to look less important by this steward. INeverCry 23:44, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
    I understand that you do a lot of work with spambots and that you didn't appreciate MF-W's comments, but if I may offer you a word of advice, I've often not appreciated comments directed at me by others, including other stewards, fellow enwiki admins, and whatnot, but that doesn't mean that they were any less suited for the job :) The yearly confirmations are a good occasion to offer constructive criticism to stewards, and we all welcome that, but I think you might be throwing out the baby out with the bathwater here :) Snowolf How can I help? 23:49, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
    Having someone make me feel unwelcome on an email list for checkusers by complaining about my emails, and then to have this backed up with an untrue and dismissive response like the one above is concerning to me. INeverCry 23:57, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Keep Keep of course--DangSunM (talk) 23:30, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep but please be mindful of INeverCry's criticism here. I really hope you're not brushing them off as "abusive" (to everyone else - "abusive" is a common SWMT joke that perhaps should be credited to this candidate).--Jasper Deng (talk) 23:33, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
    I have no intention or reason whatsoever to think that constructive criticism of actions of me or of things I wrote is abusive. It's hard however to put up with comments that claim that I am somehow opposed to fighting spambots when I have locked, CUd, blocked the IPs & deleted the contribs of many of them. --MF-W 19:22, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
