2010 elections Stewards (application guide)

This page guides users interested in voting or being a candidate in the steward elections. Please read each relevant section below.


Chun bheith in ann votáil, ní mór:

  • nach bhfuil cosc ort ar Meta (an vicí seo)
  • ar vicí ar bith den Foundation:
    • 600 athruithe a bheith déanta agat roimh 01 November 2009
    • 50 athruithe a bheith déanta agat idir 01 August 2009 agus 31 January 2010
    • nach bhfuil tú i do róbó.

Is féidir leat deimhniú go bhfuil tú incháilithe.

Suggestions to participants[edit]

  • If your home wiki doesn't have a notice that this election is under way, consider posting to your public noticeboard there to encourage participation.
  • Ask questions of the candidates if you like. Deeply threaded conversations may be refactored to the talk page for the candidate statement if necessary. Please leave a note behind so other participants know where to look if they are interested.
  • Feel free to make a short (one or two lines at most) statement explaining your vote. Again, deeply threaded conversations (responses to the votes of others) may be refactored, and again, please leave a note behind for other participants to know that there is something to read if they want.



Before applying for stewardship, please make sure that you:

  • agree to abide by the Steward policies;
  • have an active user account on this Meta wiki;
  • have an account on at least one Wikimedia Foundation project where you have been active for at least three months.

Also, because the work stewards can become involved in can lead to legal consequences and involvement, you must be:

  • at least 18 years old before the final day of voting;
  • willing to provide your full name and proof of identity to the Wikimedia Foundation.

Stewards are preferably multilingual, because steward-based operations often involve projects of varying language. They should also be available on a reasonably common basis. Among other limitations, stewards are discouraged from using their access on projects that they are active on, to avoid conflicts of interest, and are encouraged to watch and lend assistance at the Meta request pages (such as permissions, bot status, and checkuser information). If you use IRC, please join #wikimedia-stewardsconnect on freenode to answer requests.

Inactive stewards will have their access removed.


If you want to be a steward, follow these steps.

Create your statement page[edit]

  1. Create a subpage at a page named "Stewards/elections 2010/statements/Your_username_here".
  2. Save it with the following text, which will place your initial nomination:
    {{subst:sr-new statement 2010}}
  3. Edit the page with the following information:
    • Your real name (optional);
    • a link to your user account on Meta, and a link to a second active account that meets the prerequisites.
    • a list of languages you can read and write, using the language-independent Wikimedia shorthand (see w:Wikipedia:Babel).
    • a short summary of your participation in the Wikimedia Foundation. Of particular interest are administrator or bureaucrat status, volunteer work such as membership of the email response team or the Wikipedia Arbitration Committee, or any other information you feel is relevant. You can read other applicants' statements for more ideas.

When you are ready, list your subpage on the elections page by adding the following text in alphabetical order: "{{Se2010 candidate indexer|Your_username_here}}". Volunteers will add translations in various languages to it for you.

Provide proof of identity[edit]
