    Hi. I'm DannyS712. I spend a lot of my time dealing with spambots and LTAs, both as a global sysop and as a local sysop on a number of wikis. If you want to know which wikis I have advanced rights on, see my user page here on meta, or my global account info (Special:CentralAuth/DannyS712). Xtools says I have over 2400 edits to Steward requests/Global, where I frequently report accounts and IPs for stewards to lock/globally block.

    I know that stewards often have to deal with sensitive information; I have experience dealing with sensitive information as an OTRS agent, an Oversighter on Wikidata (though I've only been an OS there since December 2020), and as a member of the account creation team on enwiki.

    When I'm online, I can usually be reached on IRC, and #wikimedia-stewards is one of the channels I idle in. I have noticed times when there is an ongoing cross-wiki vandal and no stewards are available, and while this is perfectly understandable (stewards are volunteers) I think it would be beneficial to expand the steward ranks.

    I am a volunteer MediaWiki developer with +2 rights, and if I become a steward I can look for places where stewards' workflow can be improved either via user scripts or improvements to the relevant MediaWiki core/extension code.

    I'm happy to answer questions.

  2. Leaderboard (Eligible, checked by ZabeMath)2021   A very capable user, and in particular they have demostrated very good technical skills which I think would help the community a lot (from their "uniqueness" answer), and I can attest to the anti-vandalism work they do at my homewikis. Also handled Revi's challenging question about CU very well, and I'm satisfied with his response to that question. Their answer to the "bizarre situations" problem was fine as well. My main concern is honestly activity, you seem to be doing a lot and I'm not sure how you're going to maintain it as a steward. Leaderboard (talk) 14:03, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

  52. MusikAnimal (Eligible, checked by Miraclepine)2021   I agree DannyS712 has moved up the ladder almost uncomfortably fast compared to your average Wikimedian. I used to be concerned with how they would manage their ever growing list of responsibilities. But, as far as I can tell, with each new position of trust, the results were at least a net positive and more often outstanding. Somehow they still have enough energy to stay true to their commitments and produce quality work, be it in the form of counter-vandalism, technical contributions, or otherwise. Enough time has passed that I can say DannyS712 has earned my trust, and my fandom. I for one think they would be a highly productive steward, and judging by their requests for steward intervention that I've responded to, I believe they would know how to use the tools judiciously.

  61. ProcrastinatingReader (Eligible, checked by ZabeMath)2021   Per MusikAnimal. Adding: Imo the CheckUser situation has been drastically overblown. If folks have an axe to grind with the WMF, do it with the WMF. Most of that situation is on pure principle, I’m not sure there were really any pragmatic concerns, especially given log access, and if there were then people failed to make those clear. The question about RfA on enwiki was somewhat bait. The answer was unsatisfactory, sure, but I’m not sure how much better he could’ve answered the question. Don’t really see any competence issues, as far as it relates to the role of steward. I do agree with Tony’s point on the algorithmic approach to communication; I hope that improves, but even if not I guess it doesn’t really factor too much into locking spambots etc, and most regular steward tasks.

  72. Levivich (Eligible, checked by Fitindia)2021   I don't think homewiki adminship should be a prerequisite to cross-wiki advanced permissions (as long as there is other experience, which there is with Danny). There are lots of reasons why someone might not want to run for RFA or be an admin on enwiki; Danny avoiding getting into the reasons why not is an example of politeness that shouldn't be held against him. Similarly, getting CU on testwiki as part of WMF dev work doesn't strike me as any kind of problem. Danny has shown he can have advanced perms and not abuse them and that's what matters. He is competent to assist the many wikis we have that don't have a large admin corps if he has steward rights. Trust + competence meets my criteria. Levivich (talk) 08:20, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

Pictogram voting oppose.svg No[edit]

  1. Rschen7754 (Eligible, checked by -revi)2021   Stewards are supposed to insist that community consensus and global policy are to be followed by the WMF - not to take advantage when the WMF decides to go against the community, as seen at phab:T268090#6630726 when the candidate got CU rights on testwiki against the global CU policy. Sad to say, I do not think this incident reflects well on his ability to stand up to the WMF in situations like this. Rschen7754 14:00, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

  3. TonyBallioni (Eligible, checked by ZabeMath)2021   I have serious concerns with his ability to interact with community members in a way that is human and not rigid and formulaic. His responses to the questions (particularly Nick’s and revi’s) dodged what they were actually asking and provided answers that amounted to little more than “I have answered your question and I am right.” That is not the correct temperament to be a steward. TonyBallioni (talk) 14:06, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
  4. Tks4Fish (Eligible, checked by ZabeMath)2021   Per Rschen, -revi, Tony. He has problems dealing with people which is not fitting for a steward. His responses to the emergency actions and to the homewiki questions were awfully bad, and his reply to the CU granting on testwiki did not respond to the issues there presented. —Thanks for the fish! talkcontribs 14:08, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

  7. Martin Urbanec (Eligible, checked by Blablubbs)2021   Danny's answers to questions are unsatisfying to me. They seem to recite policies rather than show how the candidate feels about the topic. As Nick put it, his answer to the enwiki RfA question was "disappointing and uninformative". In addition to that, his answer to my emergency situations cases doesn't satisfy me. It doesn't unravel how the candidate understands emergencies at all. I'm also concerned by the candidate's fast promotion track. Most of the permissions the candidate now has were granted in 2020. I don't think that gives him required experience. Maybe next time, Danny. Martin Urbanec (talk) 14:24, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

  15. Barkeep49 (Eligible, checked by ZabeMath)2021   I approached Danny in July 2020 suggesting a possible enwiki RfA in a year. They responded to me that they had thought about it but were reluctant at that time given their recent enwikquote adminship. Could this be true and also it's true that they hadn't given it "much thought" which they told Nick? Maybe but it's confusing at best. Given how many permissions they do have it would be very surprising to me if they hadn't given thought about RfA on one of their homewikis. Barkeep49 (talk) 16:18, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
    @Barkeep49 I am confused by your opposition to DannyS712 as a Steward. Do you believe DannyS712 will not be a good Steward because DannyS712 chose not to apply for an Adminship at en-wiki? This is particularly confusing since others have rejeted DannyS712 as a hat-collector. How can he be a hat-collector if he turned down an an opportunity to be an admin at enwiki? Sincerely, Ottawahitech (talk) 00:01, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
    I had believed Danny would make a good enwiki admin which is why I talked to him. I believe his answers when asked about enwiki RfA by Nick were misleading. I do not want that from a Steward and so I am opposing. Barkeep49 (talk) 05:31, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

    Hi @Davey2010: I just want to tell you that there are many participants in these elections who have no idea who Revi, Tony and Capt Eek are. I have become familiar only with the first one on your list of three, who happens to be a Steward running for re-confirmation, but I have no idea who Tony and Capt Eek are, nor can I find their comments on which you base your vote in the list above. Could you please clarify what the "CU issue" is? Thanks i advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 17:36, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
    Hi Ottawahitech, There is only one Tony here and only one Capt Eek here - Please use CTRL+F to find said people. CU = CheckUser. CU issue = Revi's question at Stewards/Elections_2021/Questions#DannyS712. Cheers, –Davey2010Talk 17:42, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

    Ottawahitech, you have an F on your keyboard at the very least, and there's very likely a control key somewhere. Regardless, as you've noticed it's unlikely that users will link every person, program, entity, organization, page, etc. that they refer to. It is not helpful for you to ask these users for direct links and explanations every time you see something you are not familiar with, especially when it is very often easy to find answers yourself (here, simply by scrolling up).

A year or two of continued (and perhaps, greater) scrutiny, and perhaps as importantly, ongoing editing at a sensible rate (you're not Superman, don't try to be) will put them in a good place to support.
