Stewards (2020 Confirmations)
The 2020-21 Confirmation will begin on 8 February, and will finish on 28 February.

The 2020-21 Steward Confirmations are an opportunity for the Wikimedia community to comment on the performance of existing stewards. To make the process as smooth as possible, the confirmations are organized as follows.

To comment, please log in with an account that has edits (on any wiki) before 8 February. During the 2020 Elections, please mention if you are comfortable or unhappy with the use of steward tools of any of the people listed below and why.

After the election, stewards (including the newly-elected ones) are invited to review the confirmation comments and to give their impression of the outcome (consensus to confirm/remove etc.) on Talk:Stewards/Confirm/2020 for every steward who stood for confirmation. Of course, they are not required to do this for every candidate and will be especially careful to do it regarding someone about whom they expressed strong opinions in the confirmation. Non-steward comments are welcome outside of the "Final Decision" section, subject to the usual expectations of civility. Confirmation discussions will last one week after the appointment of the newly elected stewards. This may be extended to two weeks for one or more confirmations at the discretion of the Election Committee if the committee believes further input is required before concluding. The Election Committee will close these discussions and implement the outcome (which also means making a decision in non-obvious cases).

All stewards elected before February 2020 will undergo this process.

  • Personal info: Hey, revi as usual. I was trying to find a right balance between full-wikimedia mode and full-real life mode. I think I found a good balance, but I am still making changes. This means, I took less time on Wikimedia in general (to focus on real life), but I believe I have maintained the suitable level of activity and thus eligible to stand again for reconfirmation. Last year, I spent most time on responding to immediate help requests on IRC and other venues, responding to OTRS requests (though Trijnstel is the Champion here), dealing with daily SR backlogs, restarting StewardsBots family. I will continue to do this.

    I may have (occasionally) made some comments that would be better not left. I was too emotional at that moments, and I regret what I've done back then. I've learned from the past, and I will do better in future.

    Full disclosure

    Yes, I still work for / provide service to the WMF (see my SE2018 / Confirmation 2019 statements), but my contract is scheduled to end sometime this year, again. However, as I have some anticipated life events beyond 2021 (which won't affect my ability to serve as a Steward, though), I will not extend my contract beyond the end of calendar year 2020, if I am still employed by that moment.

  • Neutral Neutral I originally supported, but after thinking about it for a few days, I find myself here with regret. I firmly believe that there needs to be a much more clear division between staff and volunteers, and I'm simply not comfortable with staff serving as stewards simultaneously, especially in light of last year's controversy involving the WMF. That being said, what stops me from firmly opposing Revi's confirmation is the incredible work that he has done as a steward in years past. But the WMF staff issue is far too glaring for me to support. OhKayeSierra (talk) 11:19, 22 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]

English:
  • Languages: uk-N, ru-4, be-3 (only understanding), en-2.5, fr-0.5, es-0.5, nl-0.5, ja-0.5, ukl-0.5
  • Personal info: Ante scriptum. I am currently at Bukovel with my off-wiki world colleagues, I did not manage to write my statement earlier.

    This is my first confirmation as a steward.

    In 2019, I was moderately but quite irregularly active with some noticeable gaps. During the tenure I responded to some steward queue OTRS, handled some part of SRP and SRGP requests. I also participated in a couple of Steward/Trust and Safety calls, did some maintenance on steward wiki and managed some user rename requests, especially for requests originating from uk or ruwiki as well as participated in some of the discussions stewards had on the mailing list or at IRC. I the list above is not exhaustive, but I did not get involved in other activities notably enough (yet). Not directly a steward activity, but I also tried to make it more clear what stewards are for for the people I interacted with, mostly Ukrainian Wikipedia contributors.

    In my stewardship, I tried to support nominations from the small wikis more, to be more verbose in case of self-removals, I do not like it when we just mention some cryptic "on hold for one day per standard practice" without highlighting what is it good for, I also tried to make as little deal of global IP block exception flag as I possibly could, putting potential help of contributors from censored areas over potential risk of them being LTAs (as in the latter case GIPBE does not give them a lot of merit actually). I am also happy that I have made my own and other stewards' life a bit easier with a small gadget on Steward wiki related to GIPBE flag management.

    I am satisfied with my tenure for all but being able to maintain stable activity. I remember that it was voiced as one of the concerns during my election. I tried to address other things mentioned then, and I am now going to address this one too. I want to believe that I have good baseline to build activity on, that includes being more active with what I already did and also getting involved in some things which I did not cover yet.

    Be it that I am confirmed or not, I hope I was an asset to the steward team and I thank everyone for the support and criticism they have shown me at different stages of my stewardship from the election last year to the confirmation now. It is important for me. I also intend to help the stewards group regardless of me being technically one or not, be that with some technical (e.g. one needs a script for something) or social (e.g. steward usergroup needs some help) things as long as I am welcome to do that.

Comments about Base[edit]

  • Hi Base. I'd like to vote keep because you did a fine job, but absent a statement from yours saying whether you want to prolong your stewardship or not it is difficult to cast a comment one way or another.

    • Keep Keep Seen some good work around at SRP, I will say activity needs to be more but sufficient as per normal confirmation needs, although 1st year stew is a little low. I am glad for their statement.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 06:57, 9 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]

  • Remove Remove as much as I hate opposing people due to activity, I don't see a need for someone to retain tools specifically in the Steward set when they have't been used in 3.5 months and prior to that, an almost 7 month gap which is the bulk of the 2019 term. A statement, I do not feel would change this for me. Sorry. Praxidicae (talk) 18:19, 8 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • I want you to keep your steward right, but since there's no statement I'm remaining neutral. Keep Keep --Stïnger (会話) 18:32, 8 February 2020 (UTC).[reply]
  • Keep Keep This is a tough call as activity is a bit below what I expect from a first-year steward (usually they are more energized and low activity now often indicates a further drop in future years) but I'm willing to give Base another year to increase activity. --Rschen7754 00:16, 9 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]

  • Personal info: I was elected in 2017 and, since then, deal with cross-wiki abuse/vandalism/spam/LTAs and process steward requests. I would like to serve as a steward for another year if the community is willing to confirm me. Comments and suggestions about how I could improve my work are always welcome. Thanks for considering and don't hesitate to provide feedback.

  • Languages: de, en-3, es-1
  • Personal info: I was elected a steward in 2007. Since then my main focus of steward activities changed a couple of times. I still help fight some long-time vandals and be available for various tasks (like serving in the ElectCom again) but I am now more focused on outreach of the stewards. I am one of the co-organizers of the Wikimedia Stewards User Group which I helped set up, and I co-organized one of the Spaces at Wikimania about “Thriving in Safety”—a topic which will become even more relevant in the future in company with the WMF. I do support the group with my good contacts to the Wikimedia Foundation. All in all, I still enjoy playing a part in the stewards group although I am not anymore one of their most active members and I would like to provide my service once again. Thanks in advance for your feedback.

  • Personal info: This was the first term after re-joining the team. I do not have any special area of activity, just trying to do what is needed (locking of spambots, x-wiki vandalism, but also ArbCom elections scrutineering). Since August I am less active than before, due to private issue. I will keep this level of activity on different fields. I am ready to do the job for next year, if the community wants me to do so. einsbor talk 07:44, 20 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]

English:
  • Languages: en-N, fr-2, de-1
  • Personal info: Hello all. This is my second confirmation. I have been active in tackling cross-wiki abuse/vandalism/spam (through both SRG and the abuse filter logs), and attending to the OTRS queue, which is often quite backlogged (I’ve answered over 700 tickets in 2019). Compared with last year I have had an easier time at work because the build-up to Brexit was paused for political games. With Brexit almost certain to happen by the end of January, I anticipate that over the next year, my workload will ease off considerably (I’ll probably be unemployed!). I would like to continue as a steward for the coming year, with the intention of tackling crosswiki abuse and the backlog on OTRS. Thank you for reading this far (again). --Green Giant (talk) 12:24, 18 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]

  • Personal info: Hello, this is my third confirmation. As previous years, this year I've worked on protecting Wikimedia projects against crosswiki vandalism/spam and LTA activity. I'm available on IRC most of the time and also monitoring OTRS queue along with onwiki requests. I wish to serve another year with same level of activity.

  • Personal info: I have been a Wikimedian since 2008 and a steward since 2014. On top of my steward activities I serve as Wikidata administrator and volunteer by helping to maintain MediaWiki extensions. Also I have access to the Wikimedia foundation's servers which I also occasionally use to support steward actions.

    Besides my volunteer activities, I'm employed by Wikimedia Germany as software developer for Wikidata.

    In 2020 I plan to increase my activity in tackling incoming stewards requests and hope to continue helping out with technical matters. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 19:06, 26 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]
