Stewards (2009 confirmations)
English:

The 2008-09 confirmation has begun.

The 2008-09 steward elections are a good opportunity to check if we are still happy with our current stewards. To make the process as smooth as possible, here is how things are organized.

To comment, please log in with an account that has edits (on any wiki) before February 1st 2009. During the 2009 elections, please mention if you are unhappy with one of the persons listed below and why. For example, you may mention inactivity or negative behaviour. Inactive stewards, as stated in the steward policies, will lose their steward access.

At the end of the elections, the current and newly elected stewards will consider complaints left on this page, and choose to remove stewardship as necessary taking into account both the comments left by community and their own perspective and understanding of the job. All stewards will go through this process after each election.

  • Personal info: I've been a steward since 2004 and I hope to continue being useful in this area. I also chair the Wikimedia:Advisory Board and help with Wikimania (jury and program). I'm an admin on meta, the English Wikipedia, and the advisory and foundation wikis. I haven't been as active as I'd planned to be this time last year due to spending all my spare time on planning my wedding! Since that happened (in November), I have been more active within Wikimedia generally and plan to continue this. The steward areas I focus on are changing rights and deleting cross-wiki spam (example). I'm happy to do other steward tasks as well like SUL requests and global blocks but at least in the past couple of months, there have been no requests that weren't already handled immediately by a few super-active stewards! I'm in #wikimedia-stewards if I'm on IRC and can easily be reached by email in emergencies as I'm online 16 hours a day.

Anthere[edit]

  • Personal info: I have been a steward since the first election. I am also admin on fr.wiki, en.wiki, and commons as well as bureaucrat on fr.wiki. I am a founding member of Wikimedia France and a past trustee (and chair !) of Wikimedia Foundation. I currently mostly edit on fr.wiki, as well as a bit sometimes commons and fr.books (though often unloggued). And I do quite a lot at the chapter level. To be fair, my activity as steward in the past year has been low (hmmm, very low). First because as trustee, it was simply not a good idea to use these tools. And then I took a psychological break. But I'll be happy to help more in the coming year. I am usually available on irc as well for urgent needs. Cheers

  • Personal info: I was elected steward in 2006, and while I'm not as active as some other stewards in general duties, due to my role as Volunteer Coordinator for the Foundation, I still feel I have something to offer as a steward and believe I can still be trusted with the steward buttons. Thanks.

  • Personal info: I have been a steward since Dec 2006. I started grad school this year, which has reduced my activity a good bit. I am still about and I regularly follow the mailing list, and keep an eye out for new requests on wiki (though they are almost always done before I see them, some of the other stewards are doing too good of a job :) ). I expect to be much more active in the next few months and I will always be available for emergencies.

  • COI - I'm also up for confirmation. No actions in the last six months but more than 10 actions in the last year. Not technically inactive per our definition. I think we need to change our definition of inactivity after this election so everybody is aware of what is expected (simply changing and to or would suffice). But any definition change should not be applied retroactively. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 15:16, 1 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I'm sorry, I don't consider you active enough to continue. Steward tools are meant to be used.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 16:47, 1 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • when he says that he keeps an eye out for requests but they're usually done before he sees them, it seems a little hypocritical to revoke access based on "inactivity" -- I think there's a place for more "inactive" stewards that can serve as backup. Dedicated to the projects. -- phoebe 04:40, 2 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Daniel Mayer (mav)[edit]

  • 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.

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)Reply[reply]
    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)Reply[reply]
    Hmm, I'll AGF that you'll be around more this year. Majorly talk 01:06, 1 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    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)Reply[reply]
  • 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)Reply[reply]
    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)Reply[reply]
    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)Reply[reply]
    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)Reply[reply]

    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)Reply[reply]
  • 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)Reply[reply]
    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)

  • I am inclined to support, as you do a lot of good work, however I would appreciate it if you could please explain why you have been using steward tools for your home wiki (fr.wiki) such as doing a Checkuser and desysoping accounts? Also I am concerned that you sysopped user:Pmartin on frwikisource when they have very active crats and sysops, and Pmartin only has 11 edits on that project. Pmartin previously raised a discussion at their discussion board, and it would have been more appropriate for the user to alert the community of the problem again, rather than it be fixed[5] and noted after the event[6]. John Vandenberg 04:52, 3 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Hello
    • The few checkusers I did were either due to emergency (large scale vandalism and no regular checkuser online) or cross wiki ones (several wiki, which make asking the local CUs of every of them very tiedous). I tend to avoid the later whenever possible.
    • About the desysoping, Stewards_policy#Avoid_conflicts_of_interest states that it is not a problem when it's a clear cut case (self request from aoineko last july) or emergency (sebleouf, last november), tho it's not too recommmended. Since it seems to raise a few concerns, I'll avoid doing so from now on.
    • PMartin is the founder of Linterweb, the company that made the search engine Wikiwix. He had previously been given global editinterface to maintain the javascript that point to that search engine. I must admit that I am not used of creating/affecting global groups, so giving him a very temporary sysop right so he could correct the bug seemed the best solution back then. Also, you have probably noticed he was given back that global right by another steward., some hours after I gave him the temp sysop.

Comments about Drini[edit]

And sir, oh please explain me the high moral ground on canvassing? [7] [8] [9] es:Drini 21:44, 18 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
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 [[10]]. 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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
(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)Reply[reply]

    • 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)Reply[reply]

  • Personal info: Well, I've been a steward for a year now. A quite active one, at that. Not much has changed since I was elected. My statement from roughly a year ago pretty much sums it all. Moreover, I enjoyed serving the community as a steward and hope to be able to keep contributing in the following period.
