  • Personal info: I was nominated and elected as one of the original stewards back in 2004. From mid 2004 to mid 2006 I was Wikimedia Chief Financial Officer and helped with the 2007-2008 drive. Because of that, many of my steward actions were related to fundraising drives. After the 2007-2008 drive I took a long - and much needed - wikibreak from Wikimedia activities. Since coming back in November 2008, I have helped comment on requests and set user rights on a sporadic basis due to the inconvenience of editing under one global account and performing steward actions under another. That is now fixed. If confirmed, I promise to maintain a higher level of steward activity.

  • Informações pessoais: Fui nomeado e eleito como um dos stewards originais lá em 2004. Do fim de 2004 ao fim de 2006 fui chefe do escritório financeiro da Wikimedia Foundation e ajudei a unidade entre 2007 e 2008. Por causa disso, muitas das ações como steward depois de 2007 estão relacionadas com a Fundação mas muitas delas também eram ações padrões de steward. Depois disso tirei uma longa - e muito necessária - wikiférias das atividades da Wikimedia. Desde então, tenho ajudado comentando nas requisições e na definição de direitos de usuários esperadicamente por conta da incoveniência de editar usando o nome mav e nas ações de steward sob meu nome real Daniel Mayer. Muito recentemente alterei meu nome de usuário da minha conta de steward para o mesmo da minha conta de edições para tornar as transições entre wikis mais fácil. Se confirmado, prometo manter um alto nível de atividades.

  • Личная информация: Я был номинирован и избран как один из первых стюардов в 2004 году. С середины 2004 по середину 2006 я занимал должность Wikimedia Chief Financial Officer и помогал с движняком 2007-2008 годов. Из-за этого большая часть моих действий как стюарда до конца 2007 года была связана со сбором пожертвований, но были и прочие действия. После этого я взял долгий - и очень нужный - викиотпуск. С тех пор я нерегулярно помогал комментировать запросы и устанавливать пользовательские права; нерегулярность была связана с неудобством из-за необходимости редактировать из-под учётной записи mav, а совершать стюардские действия под моим реальным именем Daniel Mayer. Я совсем недавно сменил имя моего стюардского аккаунта, объединив имя с моим аккаунтом для редактирования, чтобы облегчить переходы между вики. Если я пройду конфирмацию, я обещаю проявлять более высокую стюардскую активность.

Comments about Daniel Mayer (mav)[edit]

  • Extremely inactive - you should have handed steward rights back in at the end of 2007, or when you went inactive. I'm not sure based on your activity record you'd be suited to continue. Majorly talk 00:29, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
    NOTE: Inactivity for a Steward is defined as "no steward action in the past 6 months and less than 10 steward actions in the last year." Most of what I've done since coming back from my Wikibreak is comment on requests and be on-call in the IRC channel, which of course is not in the user rights log. I'm back for certain now that my global account is the same as my Steward account. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 01:04, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
    Hmm, I'll AGF that you'll be around more this year. Majorly talk 01:06, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
    Thank you for assuming good faith that I'm telling the truth and will do what I say. :) --Daniel Mayer (mav) 04:08, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
  • I'm sorry, I consider you to be inactive despite your showing up a few weeks before the confirmations, and I think you should be removed.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 01:07, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
    Actually, I came back from my extended Wikibreak in November 2008. Before that, I was busy editing the English Wikipedia - which was surprisingly therapeutic. :) If you like, I will place myself on permanent confirmation and thus be subject to faster recall if my activity drops again --Daniel Mayer (mav) 01:18, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
    Just to note that mav and I had a quick conversation about this, and I concluded that my initial "remove" was correct. Thanks  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 16:49, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
    And even though I don't agree with you, I don't fault you for taking that stand. Perhaps I should have set the steward flag to my account to null before my Wikibreak. I honestly never thought my break would last as long as it did. But that is the past; I'm back now. Good luck with your own bid to become a Steward. :) --Daniel Mayer (mav) 20:02, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Too inactive I think, not everything is defined by that simple definition Prodego talk 03:21, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
    Please look at the recent activity, especially in regards to commenting on requests and getting feedback on IRC on those requests. I plan to maintain a similar level of activity going forward. -Daniel Mayer (mav) 04:08, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
  • I like what I see, and I'm glad you've come back. Institutional memory is another plus. I'd just ask you, if you think you're going to have to drop to completely inactive again, to seriously consider giving up your bit. But on balance I think we'd be worse off without your considerable experience and skills. Keep. ++Lar: t/c 05:32, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
    Thank you! I can't make any promises if I'm hit by a bus, but if I go inactive again I will de-steward myself. Besides, I've been around since the first year of Wikipedia and was at one time super active in Wikimedia activities; wild horses could not drag me away from this completely. :) We are really changing the world for the better - who wouldn't want to help make that happen? --Daniel Mayer (mav)
  • Trustworthy, says he'll become more active. Keep. Cbrown1023 talk 15:48, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support Support Excellent steward, concerns mentioned above do not convince me. — Aitias // discussion 19:23, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Trustworthy, hasn't broken the wiki. If he says he'll be more active in the future, let's let him. NuclearWarfare 20:09, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Confirm, of course. — Dan | talk 01:41, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Per mav, keep. Regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 12:32, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
  • He says he will be more active in the future, and has not given any indication in the past that he s anything but suitable and trustworthy. I am more than willing to extend the benefit of the doubt and trust that he means what he says and will follow through. -- Avi 15:56, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Support Support. The stewards policy considers "inactive" as no steward action in the past 6 months and less than 10 steward actions in the last year. 170 rights' change look fine to me.--Jusjih 02:59, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support Support renewed activity, willingness to serve, and more than qualified. Please stay. bastique demandez! 19:00, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Keep, per above and renewed recent activity. Kylu 03:50, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Fine, states will be more active and thus is deserving of our continued support fr33kman t - c 04:08, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support retention. MBisanz talk 04:25, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Keep - trustworthy and experienced stewards should not be removed because of inactivity, once their intention is to become active again. Woudloper 11:15, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support Support, have a great experience. Alex Pereira falaê 15:50, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support Support Inactivity is indeed a concern, but when a user with great experience who has proven himself trustworthy and competent wants to continue contributing as steward, I say keep and thanks for volunteering. Regards, Finn Rindahl 20:57, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
