  • Personal info: I would like to nominate myself for stewardship. I was elected as a steward in 2009 and I resigned in 2010 in good standing (without controversy) because I didn't have enough time to contribute back then. Now I have more free time. I have been elected for many positions of trust within Wikimedia wikis. I am a checkuser and admin on Arabic Wikipedia and admin on English Wikipedia. I am also a former bureaucrat and admin here on Meta and admin on Commons. (Again, I gave up those rights in good standing because I didn't have enough time back then.) I started contributing to Wikipedia in April 2006 and I have made about 250K manual edits and more than 900K bot edits using my two bot accounts (MenoBot and MenoBot II) for a combined total of more than 1.1 million edits. My work is spread over many projects: I have made more than 1000 edits on 12 wikis and more than 100 edits on 21 wikis. Since I am a native Arabic speaker, my contributions here on Meta are mainly about translating pages to Arabic. I believe that I will increase the cultural and linguistic diversity of stewards since there are currently no stewards from the Arab world or Africa. I am an OTRS volunteer since 2007 (replying to messages in queues info-ar and info-en). Since 2007, I have reported 125 bugs to Bugzilla. I also submitted about 150 commits to the old code repository hosted on (mainly maintaining Arabic localization. I haven't coded anything serious.) In 2008 I was given an account on the Toolserver that I used to operate my bots. In 2013, I switched to using Wikimedia Labs for operating my bots. I attended one Wikimania (Wikimania 2008) where I enjoyed meeting Jimbo and other Foundation officials like Brion Vibber, Tim Starling and Florence Devouard. Over the years, I also participated in many Wikimedia related events in Egypt, such as this 2009 college workshop in Alexandria University and the 2012 Cairo meetup. On 13 July 2012, I created the 4 millionth article on the English Wikipedia (Ezbet el-Borg). On 31 December 2012, I received a T-shirt as a gift from Wikimedia Foundation.

  134. FeralOink (Eligible, checked by LlamaAl)2014   I am Ellie Kesselman. I am Jewish and female and a widow. Meno25 showed good judgment and sensitivity, in dealing with me during my early days with assorted Wiki's, unlike others <glower> who shall not be named. Note that Meno25 was given an account on the Toolserver, used it, and didn't do anything that resulted in loss of privilege for 5 consecutive years. He has prior experience as a Steward, which should be perceived as a feature, not a bug, despite the brevity of his tenure. Last, but not least, it seems essential to have at least one Steward with Arabic language fluency. FeralOink (talk) 12:40, 24 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  1. Snowolf (Eligible, checked by Alan)2014   Meno25 was essentially active for only two months in his past term as steward, and not even particularly so. He has not been active in the SWMT or on meta requests page. The statement by this user gives a lot of details about their activity on Wikimedia, but it does not address my concern that if their activity dropped so low after just two months it might do so again this time, despite their best intention. If they had shown their intention to be active by taking an active role in the SWMT since deciding to run for stewardship, I would gladly be supporting their candidature but they have not done so. Also per MF-Warburg. Snowolf How can I help? 18:00, 8 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  3. MF-Warburg (Eligible, checked by Snowolf)2014   I don't think that the way to „get more involved in Meta-Wiki affairs“ is running for steward. Also I see no merit whatsoever in attending Wikimania and meeting people there and getting t-shirts. I find it very unapt and reflecting badly on the candidate's suitability if you mention that in a steward candidature. MF-W 18:01, 8 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I'm simply just an observer and happened to come across your comment. Are you saying Wikimania is useless? I agree that there is no merit in attending but that's not the point at all. There are tons of "extremely important" discusses going on during Wikimania. take a look here. They are not some random topics. All of the discussions are directly concern about the future of Wikipedia or related issues. To me, those discussions are far more important than writing articles or any stewards' tasks. I'm not saying writing articles and stewards' tasks are not important. Sure, they are, but the difference is you can do it any time and Wikimania is only once per year. Plus the impact of those discussions are huge, not yet, but in the future. I would applaud anyone who spent the time and resources needed to attend a Wikimania. Have you ever been to one? If not, then you shouldn't have judged anyone that went. I'm shocked to see that a steward like you can utter such a statement regarding Wikimania, the most important off-line activity in all Wikimedia Foundation. 22:03, 15 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I didn't want to give an opinion about the importance of Wikimania here. In fact I plan to go to Wikimania this year and have made a submission for it. What I wanted to say is that I don't see how attending Wikimania "where I enjoyed meeting Jimbo and other[s]" is relevant to steward elections. --MF-W 20:22, 19 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    It's your own opinion to think that it is not relevant to the steward election, and there is nothing wrong with that. What was wrong is this "I find it very unapt and reflecting badly on the candidate's suitability if you mention that in a steward candidature." In my point of view, it shows his passion about Wikimedia project. I would consider that passion is one of the great traits any steward should have. Even if you think going to Wikimania doesn't help the steward election, but surely it can't hurt. The only way it can hurt the steward candidate is if going to Wikimania is considered as a bad activity by many people. Note side: Good to know that you're attending Wikimania. That would be an eye opener. 03:55, 24 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    If you don't elect this guy elected as a steward, then he can not be an active steward anyway. However, if he is elected as a steward, may be he is going to be an active one. The more trusted users we have as stewards, the more likelihood that there will be more "active" stewards. On a positive note, he resigned when he couldn't be active.
