  • Support Support I'm inclined to support Drini (based on the overall good performance as steward). Nonetheless, I should say that I was dissatisfied by the way Drini handled this (I think if Drini wasn't too fast in defending Dungodung's mistake, we wouldn't see other mistakes like this ).

  • Remove. Due to this steward´s recent activities with capricious blocking for his friend Netito 777 of User JMundo and myself and abuse of sysop priveledges on the English Wikipedia, I have no faith that he can be trusted with any position on the projects. His mendacious mischaracterizations of what was said show a disdain for the truth and honesty.Die4Dixie 21:28, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
And sir, oh please explain me the high moral ground on canvassing? [1] [2] [3] es:Drini 21:44, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
Ad hominem attacks only serve to highlight your lack of suitability for the position. These users have a unique knowledge of your actions. Would you expect me to open a Request for comment on your actions and link to it here? Exactly what would you say was the ideal way to let people know about abusive behavior and the forum to comment on it? Perhaps leave a messgage on every user´s page on all the projects? Notifying three people of this election without suggesting what they say is hardly canvassing. I believe my friendly notification falls under [[4]]. It was sent to three people(limited number) and neutrally worded. Please explain how this is a violation of WP:CANVASS or is this another mendacious twisting of something that you cannot not know is not canvassing. If you do not understand the policy on canvassing to correctly identify it, then I realy question on more grounds you ability to serve as a steward.Die4Dixie 22:28, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
None of this has anything to do with stewardship. Drini is probably one of the best stewards we've ever had. You're essentially saying you're opposing him continuing his good work because he blocked you. Canvassing to people to get them to attempt to come and sabotage this discussion in your favour hasn't helped you one bit either. Please consider your future actions more carefully. Thanks, Majorly talk 22:49, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
(edit conflict)I'm not familiar with meta-wiki or non-English projects but I seriously doubt Die4Dixie's incident is going to overturn anybody's candidacy for anything - the other comments are universally in support. Thus, I suggest all parties keep some decorum here and not get into wiki-arguing. I think the handling of Die4Dixie's block on English Wikipedia was unfortunate (a block for reasons poorly stated and seemingly mistaken, possibly not as a neutral party, followed by being unavailable for a day). Also, even though as Majorly points out Stewardship is very different than adminship, because of the increased authority it should be even more important that one keep a calm head, not play favorites, not get into grudges or matches with individual editors, etc. It is normal that the target of a block will be upset and make accusations, reasonable ones and otherwise, and perhaps even speak out of turn. Turning the other cheek and dealing with that in a firm but dignified way so that the blocked party can, hopefully, cool down and rejoin the editing process is also part of the job of administering blocks. The strong protest against alleged canvassing seems defensive, and piling on. Having said all that, and with all due respect to D4D and his (in my opinion) reasonable upset, I don't see this as anything to disqualify a candidate. No lasting harm done on either side, so please let it go. Wikidemon 23:06, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
Btw sometimes Drini you yourself are soft with canvassing, so we're all to blame anyway--Vituzzu 20:23, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep Per Die4Dixie, if you're going to canvass I'll make it work backwards Alexfusco5 23:28, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep Without Pedro, we would need 10 more hard working stewards to replace him :) --Millosh 13:06, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep--Shizhao 13:59, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
  • keep --FiliP × 17:38, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Remove Remove I don't question his vandal fighting work, but he lacks experience in conflict resolution. Without entering into detail about my personal case, Drini has refused to mediate after my request, 1 and defended the actions of the other party involved, 2. I hope that my posting will catch the attention of another Spanish speaking steward, any help is welcome. Thanks, --J.Mundo 19:02, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
    • May I just bring to your kind attention that steward's role is not meant as "super-administrator"; a Steward is not a sort of mediator, nor decides but always conforms to the relevant policies. Thank you for reading. --M/ 19:09, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
