  • Personal info: As per previous years, I would like to express my gratitude for the community's continued trust in my contributions, and I would like to continue in this role for the upcoming year. While not the most active steward, I believe I contribute value in almost all steward areas, especially in discussions and decisions which may not always be visible on-wiki due to privacy issues. While I have reduced my Wikimedia-wide activities this past year (having voluntarily relinquished Oversight on the Commons) I think that the experience I bring from various janitorial positions across the projects will continue to help the corpus of Stewards in the coming year. Thank you. -- Avi (talk) 16:30, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Informationen zur Person: Wie in vorherigen Jahren würde ich gerne meine Dankbarkeit ausdrücken für das fortgesetzte Vertrauen der Community in meine Beiträge und ich würde gerne diese Aufgabe im kommenden Jahr fortsetzen. Obwohl ich nicht der aktivste Steward bin, glaube ich, dass ich in fast allen Steward-Bereichen nützlich bin, besonders in Diskussionen und Entscheidungen, die aus Datenschutzgründen nicht immer onwiki sichtbar sein mögen. Obwohl ich meine wikimediaweiten Aktivitäten im letzten Jahr reduziert habe (und freiwillig die Oversightrechte bei Commons aufgegeben habe), denke ich, dass die Erfahrung, die ich aus verschiedenen Hausmeisterpositionen projektübergreifend einbringe, dem Steward-Team im kommenden Jahr weiterhin helfen wird. Danke. -- Avi (talk) 16:30, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Προσωπικές πληροφορίες: Όπως και τα προηγούμενα χρόνια, θα ήθελα να εκφράσω την ευγνωμοσύνη μου για την συνεχιζόμενη εμπιστοσύνη της κοινότητας στις συνεισφορές μου, και θα ήθελα να συνεχίσω με αυτόν τον ρόλο και τον ερχόμενο χρόνο. Ενώ δεν είμαι ο πλέον ενεργός επίτροπος, πιστεύω ότι συνεισφέρω ποιοτικά σχεδόν σε όλους τους τομείς δραστηριότητας των επιτρόπων, ειδικά σε συζητήσεις και αποφάσεις οι οποίες δεν είναι πάντα ορατές εντός wiki λόγω ζητημάτων ιδιωτικότητας. Παρόλο που έχω μειώσει τη δραστηριότητά μου σε όλο το Wikimedia τον περασμένο χρόνο (παραιτήθηκα εθελοντικά από Oversight στα Commons), πιστεύω ότι η εμπειρία που έχω λόγω των διαφόρων διαχειριστικών θέσεων σε διάφορα εγχειρήματα θα συνεχίσει να βοηθά την ομάδα των επιτρόπων και τον ερχόμενο χρόνο. Σας ευχαριστώ. -- Avi (talk) 16:30, 16 Ιανουαρίου 2017 (UTC)

  • Información personal: Como en años anteriores, quisiera expresar mi gratitud por la continua confianza de la comunidad en mis contribuciones, y me gustaría continuar en este papel para el próximo año. Aunque no soy el steward más activo, creo que el valor de mi aporte en casi todas las áreas de steward, especialmente en discusiones y decisiones que no siempre son visibles en las wikis debido a cuestiones de privacidad. Aunque he reducido mis actividades en Wikimedia durante el año pasado (habiendo renunciado voluntariamente el permiso de Supresor en Commons), creo que la experiencia que traigo de varias posiciones de limpieza a través de los proyectos continuará ayudando al cuerpo de stewards en el próximo año. Gracias. --Avi (discusión) 16:30, 16 ene 2017 (UTC)

  • מידע אישי: כמו שנים שעברו אני רוצה להגיד תודתי על האמונה הקהילתית שנמשכת בתרומותי, ורציתי להמשיך בתפקיד זה בשנה הבאה. אני יודע שלא הייתי הדייל הפעיל ביותר, אבל אני חושב שיש ערך בתרומתי בכל תחומי דייל, במיוחד בדיונים והחלטות שלא היו בגלוי על-ויקי מפני בעיות פרטיות. בעוד שצמצמתי פעילותי בארגון וויקימדיה הרחבה בשנה שעברה (ויתרתי מהיות מסתיר על ויקישיתוף ברצון) אני חושב שניסיוני בעמדות ניקיון שונות ברחבי הפרויקטים ימשיך לסייע הדיילים בשנה הבאה. תודה רבה לכולכם. -- אבי (שיחה) 16:30, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

Comments about Avraham[edit]

  • Keep Keep Active enough (barely) and actions were reasonable. --Rschen7754 14:05, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Remove Remove 11/12 months with less than 5 steward actions and 4/12 months with 0 actions do not leave much of a basis for prolonged access. Little visible use of access has been criticised by many in the past years as well and now claiming to have reduced Wikimedia-wide activity even more does not look promising at all. Anyway, thanks for the past valuable service. --Vogone (talk) 14:11, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep Keep I am prepared to believe him when he says that he "contribute[s] value in ... discussions and decisions which may not always be visible on-wiki due to privacy issues". Counting "steward actions" (which I assume refers to actions recorded in logs) would miss these types of contributions to private discussions among stewards. This, that and the other (talk) 09:50, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep, while he is not the most active steward, he seems to have the right experience and make good contributions to the functioning of stewards as a group. I don't see any problems with him keeping the rights — NickK (talk) 13:45, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep Keep--Archenzo (talk) 16:10, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Remove Remove Really too little use of the steward tools. Global renames can be done with Global rename rights only. And I don't agree with the argument about his contributions "behind the scenes". I didn't remember anything interesting from the past year, so I now searched my mail archive, and sorry to say, but I found no valauble contributions to difficult "discussions and decisions". --MF-W 17:08, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
  • I'm still neutral on this for now, but I don't think that Avraham is very active in our internal discussions. He has made it to a couple of the calls, but there is almost no activity on the list - especially on the difficult cases where his input could really be valuable. – Ajraddatz (talk) 22:05, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
    • @MF-Warburg and Ajraddatz: Avraham has no global rename rights. If he loses steward rights, then he can't rename anyone anymore. Besides that, he also used the steward rights for 2 CU cases in April ("second opinion") and in Decembre and did a lot of other right changes (see Special:Log/rights/Avraham) which he all can't do anymore without steward rights. Then other stewards certainly have to do more. I don't see a logical reason for that, if he does things well, and there is noone doubting that. I don't see another reason for removing here but only "inactivity", but he's not that inactive. --Bjarlin (talk) 13:45, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
      • As I said, I'm neutral on this request. I generally don't agree with inactivity as a valid rationale for removal, without some indication that such inactivity is causing errors. Or if the person is totally not here anymore. – Ajraddatz (talk) 19:38, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep Keep - While not the most active steward of the bunch, Avi is among the most thoughtful and level-headed (but you guys are all great, don't get me wrong!). He's highly experienced in dealing with difficult and sensitive issues related to Wikimedia projects, and can be relied upon to provide a voice of reason when needed most. I agree that we shouldn't keep inactive stewards around indefinitely, but Avi is still present enough to be useful. –Juliancolton | Talk 02:35, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep Keep --masti <talk> 22:07, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep - No concerns, experienced and overall a quality steward. I personally am not overly concerned about the activity level as Avraham's judgment is sound and in my estimation it cannot hurt to have more qualified stewards (the work has to be done by someone, why not spread the burden as much as possible.) Mifter (talk) 01:55, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep - I believe his presence as a steward will be a net positive for the team. While his activity is low, that should be possible to fix, and there were no issues with his actions pointed out. --Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 02:11, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep While Avraham's activity levels are never particularly high, I've always noticed that he brings a different perspective to most steward issues, and is an excellent "bridgebuilder" in thorny situations. I see that some stewards above have noted that there's been little input from Avi behind the scenes, which is a pity and I hope you can take part more in the future! Snowolf How can I help? 09:29, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
