Andre Engels (André Engels)[edit]

English:
  • Languages: nl-N, en-4, de-3, fr-2, most other Germanic and Romance languages-1
  • Personal information: I used to be a Steward already, but resigned after getting into a fight on the Dutch Wikipedia. I now would want to offer my services once again. Through my work with the interwiki bot I come at many Wikipedia languages. I would like to be active for the smaller wikis, mostly by promoting sysops and setting bot bits, but also by having myself or others who volunteer get temporary sysophood on projects without sysops to do the necessary cleanup work.
العربية:
  • اللغات: nl-N, en-4, de-3, fr-2, معظم اللغات الجرمانية بمستوى مبتديء
  • المعلومات الشخصية: لقد كنت مضيفا فيما سبق، لكن استقلت نتيجة خلاف في ويكيبيديا الهولندية. أود أن أعرض خدماتي مرة ثانية. من خلال عملي مع بوت الإنترويكي أمر بلغات عديدة من ويكيبيديا. أود أن أكون نشطا للويكيات الصغرى، من خلال ترقية مديري النظام ومنح أعلام البوتات، لكن أيضا من خلال القيام بأعمال التنظيف الضرورية مع الآخرين الذين يتطوعون للحصول على الصلاحيات الإدارية المؤقتة على المشاريع التي لا يوجد بها مديرو نظام.

  • Información personal: Yo ya era un steward, pero renuncié después de un conflicto en la Wikipedia en holandés. Quiero ofrecer nuevamente mis servicios. A través de mi trabajo con bots interwiki he llegado a Wikipedias en muchos idiomas. Quiero estar activo en las wikis pequeñas, promoviendo sysops y activando banderas de bot, pero también estar disponible para que yo u otros colaboradores tengan sysop temporal en los proyectos que necesiten limpieza.

  • Langues : nl-N, en-4, de-3, fr-2, la plupart des autres langues germaniques et romanes-1
  • Informations personnelles : j'ai déjà été steward, mais j'y ai renoncé après avoir été en conflit sur la Wikipédia en néerlandais (nl.wikipédia). Je voudrais offrir à nouveau mes services. J'interviens dans beaucoup de wikis grâce à mon bot interwiki. J'aimerais être actif dans les petits wikis, surtout pour sysoper et activer des botflags, mais aussi pour me sysoper temporairement, ainsi que d'autres personnes volontaires, sur les wikis sans sysop pour faire la maintenance nécessaire.
Deutsch:
  • Sprachen: nl-N, en-4, de-3, fr-2, die meisten anderen germanischen und romanischen Sprachen-1
  • Informationen zur Person: Ich war schon mal Steward, bin aber nach einem Streit in der niederländischen Wikipedia zurückgetreten. Jetzt möchte ich meine Dienste wiedermal anbieten. Durch meine Interwiki-Botarbeiten arbeite ich auf vielen Wikipedia-Sprachen. Ich möchte meinen Steward-Status für die kleineren Wikis anwenden, erstens indem ich Benutzer zu Sysops oder Bots mache, aber auch indem ich mich selbst oder andere Freiwillige kurzfristig auf Wikis ohne Sysops zu Sysops mache, damit er oder sie die nötige Aufräumarbeit erledigen kann.
Nederlands:
  • Talen: nl-N, en-4, de-3, fr-2, de meeste andere Germaanse en Romaanse talen-1
  • Persoonlijke informatie: Ik was al eens Steward, maar ben na een conflict binnen de Nederlandstalige Wikipedia als zodanig teruggetreden. Nu wil ik mijn diensten opnieuw aanbieden. Door mijn werk met de interwikibot kom ik op Wikipedia in vele talen. Ik zou graag actief willen zijn voor de kleinere wiki's, in de eerste plaats door sysops te maken en botbits te geven, maar ook door mezelf of andere vrijwilligers tijdelijk sysop te maken om het noodzakelijke schoonmaakwerk aan te pakken.
Bahasa Indonesia:
  • Bahasa yang dikuasai: nl-N, en-4, de-3, fr-2, most other Germanic and Romance languages-1
  • Informasi pribadi: Saya dahulu pernah menjadi Steward, tapi mengundurkan diri setelah terlibat dalam sebuah perselisihan di Wikipedia bahasa Belanda. Saya sekarang hendak menawarkan pelayanan saya kembali. Melalui kontribusi saya dengan bot interwiki, saya tiba di banyak versi bahasa Wikipedia. Saya akan aktif pada wiki-wiki yang lebih kecil, khususnya untuk mempromosikan opsis dan mengeset akses bot, serta memberikan saya sendiri atau pengguna sukarela lainnya akses opsis sementara di proyek-proyek yang belum memiliki opsis untuk melakukan pembersihan yang diperlukan.
Italiano:
  • Lingue: nl-N, en-4, de-3, fr-2, pressoché tutte le altre lingue germaniche e appartenenti al gruppo neo-latino-1
  • Informazioni personali: Sono stato uno Steward in passato, ma mi ero dimesso in seguito ad una disputa sulla Wikipedia in lingua olandese. Ora desidero offrirmi di nuovo per questo servizio. Attraverso il mio lavoro con il bot per gli interwiki vengo in contatto con le versioni di Wikipedia in molte lingue. Mi piacerebbe essere attivo con le wiki più piccole, in particolare per la promozione degli amministratori e l'attribuzione del flag ai bot, ma anche rendendomi disponibile e aiutando gli altri che già lo sono per l'amministrazione temporanea di quei progetti che sono sprovvisti di amministratori che svolgano abitualmente il lavoro di manutenzione.
日本語:
  • 言語: nl-N, en-4, de-3, fr-2, 他のほとんどのロマンス系・ゲルマン系言語-1
  • 候補者の情報: 以前スチュワードだったことがありますが、オランダ語版ウィキペディアで争いに巻き込まれた後で辞任しました。いま再びスチュワードとしてお手伝いしたいと思ってます。わたしは言語間リンクボット(interwikibot)を通じて、ウィキペディアで使われるいろいろな言語に接しました。小規模のウィキでの活動を活発に行い、具体的には管理者の昇格やボットフラグの付与を行うとともに、管理者のいないプロジェクトでは臨時の管理者として必要な整理作業をお手伝いしたいと思います。
Suomi:
  • Kielet: nl-N, en-4, de-3, fr-2, useimmat muut germaaniset ja romaaniset kielet-1
  • Henkilökohtaiset tiedot: Olin jo aiemmin steward mutta jätin tehtävän vapaaehtoisesti ajauduttuani kiistaan hollanninkielisessä Wikipediassa. Nyt haluaisin jälleen tarjota palveluksiani. Interwikibotin kanssa tekemäni työn vuoksi olen tekemisissä monien Wikipedian kieliversioiden kanssa. Haluaisin toimia aktiivisesti pienten wikien hyväksi, pääasiassa ylläpito-oikeuksia myöntämällä sekä bottimerkintöjä säätämällä, mutta myös antamalla joko itselleni tai muille vapaaehtoisille väliaikaisia ylläpito-oikeuksia tarpeellisen siivoustyön tekemistä varten sellaisissa hankkeissa, joissa ylläpitäjiä ei ole.
Polski:
  • Języki: nl-N, en-4, de-3, fr-2, większość innych germańskich i romańskich-1
  • Informacje o mnie: Byłem już stewardem ale zrezygnowałem z funkcji po popadnięciu w konflikt na niderlandzkiej Wikipedii. Teraz chciałbym ponownie zaoferować moje usługi. Dzięki pracy z moim botem obsługującym interwiki pojawiam się w wielu Wikipediach. Chciałbym być aktywny zwłaszcza w małych Wikipediach głównie promując administratorów i ustawiając flagi botów, ale także przez przyjęcie tymczasowej flagi administratora na projektach bez administratorów by wykonywać konieczne prace porządkowe.

  • Лични подаци: Већ сам био стјуард, али сам дао оставку после сукоба на холандској Википедији. Сада бих поново желео да понудим своје услуге. Кроз свој рад са интервики ботом стигао сам до многих језичких издања Википедије. Желео бих да будем активан на мањим викијима, углавном промовишући администраторе и постављајући ботовске битове, али исто тако да се бавим неопходним сређивањем уз друге добровољце који добију привремена администраторска права на пројектима без администратора.

  • 個人資料: 我本來是一名監管員,但因為捲入荷蘭語維基百科的爭執而辭去監管員的職務,而現在我希望重新為維基社群服務我透過跨語言維基 百科的機器人進行協調工作。我將會在一些較小型的維基服務,主要工作是處理管理員升遷及設置機器人的事務,我也會在其他一些尚沒有管理員的維基計劃頁面中進行設立臨時管理員來進行清理工作。

Questions / Frage / Domande / Pertanyaan / Kysymykset / Perguntas/ أسئلة[edit]

  1. Could you elaborate on the circumstances of your stewardship resignation? Nishkid64 (talk) 18:29, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
    • It was a conflict about blocking policy on the Dutch Wikipedia, either about longer blocks for repeat vandals (the other person was in favor of longer blocks for repeated vandalism, I was in favor only if they seemed to come from the same vandal or group of vandals, not if there were different vandals at the same ip) or about unblocking (I was in favor of unblocking if the block is considered incorrect or much too long, the other person was against any unblocking unless the original blocker had had their chance to give their opinion first). The discussion got heated, and we both resigned as sysops. I also resigned as Steward. - Andre Engels 23:15, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
  2. Resigning as a steward must have been very regrettable and impacted negatively on the running of WMF projects. What have you learnt from the incident that would prevent a re-occurrence of such a situation where you felt it inappropriate to remain in your position as a steward. Adambro 22:58, 17 November 2007 (UTC)
    • I think what I've learned is to not react in place A when there's a problem in place B. More specifically, to not resign Stewardship over something else than problems that I'm involved in as a Steward. What I should still learn, is to wait longer - not 10 seconds, not a day, but more like one or two weeks, before taking an irriversible action. = Andre Engels 17:10, 19 November 2007 (UTC)
  3. Do you consider it should be within the role of steward to make such decision as blocking or unblocking people ? Such as perhaps being a central group overviewing blocking mecanisms ? Do you think we should have that role locally ? Or should we have that role globally ? (in case of a vandal running wild on several projects) . Or should we have that role in small projects ? What are your views on this ? Anthere 10:23, 24 November 2007 (UTC)
    • Stewards, even more than local moderators and bureaucrats, are there to aid the existing community, not to make decisions. Basic policy should be to only block people if there is such a decision by the local community (and they don't have the power to do it themselves). Cross-wiki vandalism might indeed be the exception, but in cases other than clear and large scale vandalism, when there is no request by the local community or no community to make the request, I would only block with explicit request or at least permission from a higher authority (like the board or the language committee)
  4. At the recent arbitration committee elections on the Dutch Wikipedia you said you said not being elected was the best result for you since you would not have to endure the stress of being a member. Don't you think being a steward again would also be stressful? - Dammit 13:20, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
    • It might be, but I think less so. It's a rare case that Stewards disagree among themselves or with the wider community. - Andre Engels 10:05, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

  1. In my humble opinion, stewards should be absolutely and long term trusted people. The previous incident has broken this trust ; that's gives me some hesitation to approve the candidate as steward. --Dereckson 08:23, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

  5. Annabel 17:55, 8 December 2007 (UTC) Andre Engels is certainly a good candidate. However, I'm afraid that he must be protected from himself.
