  • Personal info: Hello, everyone. This is my sixth confirmation as a steward. Quite a long time has passed since I joined this team. As some may already know, I deal mostly with LTAs, cross-wiki abuse/vandalism/spam, but also process other requests like user rights management (both local and global), global renames, privacy related issues etc. I also do a lot of behind the scenes stuff, such as mailing list and IRC administration, and the management of the private checkuser wiki, which includes handling all these specific accesses as users get promoted or removed from their roles, but also other maintenance tasks permanently involved there. Due to the pandemic, I got completely busy in the middle of the year. I work with information technology at a state university; so, when things all went “on-line” in March, I found myself in a turmoil, and had to work around the clock to compensate it. Thankfully by the end of September they managed to hire more people, and things started going back to normal, as well as my activity on Meta. Despite of this, I kept handling some behind the scenes stuff and other private requests even on the lowest activity periods. 2020 was the harshest year for me ever, but I tried my best to stay committed on helping the Wikimedia community. Still, I am interested in continuing serving as a steward for one more year, now on my regular activity level, if confirmed of course. I think I am still useful to the corpus of stewards, and I hope I could get the opportunity to share my views and experience with the incoming stewards. Thank you!

  • Question Hi, the discussion at Requests for comment/Site-wide administrator abuse and WP:PILLARS violations on the Croatian Wikipedia has been pending a close for the entirety of the last term, and has not had any Steward significantly discuss with the participants its status, despite a couple of requests and the more recent passing of the meta closure of rfc policy. Could you explain why a) you and b) the Stewards as a whole, failed to close (and, as applicable, execute, it)? As a connected point to the most likely answers (too complicated, insufficiently clear remedies, not in remit, etc) could you clarify both why it/they apply but also why you/the Stewards didn't make that known to every participant and ask for specific actions taken to make it possible for the Stewards to act on it, despite the insane timescale?

Hello, Nosebagbear. Thanks for participating. As other stewards have already mentioned, given the rowdy situation involving hrwiki, it's unlikely that a steward alone would take any decision on it. There were some discussions over what was going on. However, in the present scenario, I also favor the view that the WMF T&S team is the most suitable instance do handle over it, since as stewards we should not act as a global arbcom. And as far as I know, they are working on the case. RadiX 20:14, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
@Radix: how would you say it is like a Global Arbcom - you'd only be assessing and executing a community consensus, as opposed to actually deciding an outcome? Nosebagbear (talk) 21:00, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
I wasn't meant to compare the closure of a RfC to the commitments of an arbcom; it was just a unrelated example (and to hrwiki situation as a whole). Regards, RadiX 04:24, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
