Suggestions to participants[edit]

  • You can ask the candidates questions on Stewards/elections 2011-2/Questions.
  • No comments except a simple "yes" or "no" will be allowed on the voting page; all other comments will be removed. If you would like to comment beyond a vote, please use the talk page of the candidate's voting page. Please remember to be civil and avoid personal attacks. Users engaging in disruptive behaviour will be blocked on-sight by any administrator.
  • As some users have disabled CentralNotice, you may also inform other users who might be interested in participate in the voting.



Please read carefully ALL this text before nominating yourself. If you do not meet the following prerequisites you will be automatically disqualified.

Before applying for stewardship, you must:

  • agree to abide by the policies governing steward access, checkuser access, oversight access, and privacy;
  • have a global (SUL) account;
  • have a user account on this Meta wiki (attached to your unified account);
  • have an account on at least one Wikimedia Foundation project where you have been active for at least six months;
  • hold or have held administrator rights on one Wikimedia Foundation project for a period of at least three months.

(You can check the above requirements automatically.)

Also, because steward work can lead to legal consequences and involvement (see the checkuser and oversight policies), you must:

  • be at least 18 years old, and at least the age of majority in your country, before the final day of voting;
  • provide your full name and proof of identity to the Wikimedia Foundation.

Stewards are preferably multilingual, because steward work often involves projects of varying language, but this is not a requirement. They should also be available on a reasonably common basis. The stewards policy sets limitations; for example, stewards may not use their access on projects that they are active on to avoid conflicts of interest, and are encouraged to watch and help on the steward request pages. They can also join the IRC channel #wikimedia-stewardsconnect on freenode to answer requests.

Inactive stewards will have their access removed.


If you want to submit yourself as a candidate, please follow these steps.

Create your statement and vote page[edit]

  • Create a subpage (just open it and click save)

  • 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 like "fr-3" (see {{user language}}).
    • a short summary of your participation in the Wikimedia Foundation. Of particular interest are administrator or bureaucrat access, volunteer work such as membership of the email response team or an Arbitration Committee, or any other information you feel is relevant. You can read other applicants' statements for more ideas.
  • Now create your votes page (no need to do any modifications; just create the page):

  • When you are done with that, add yourself to the statements index page (with {{/YOUR USER NAME}}) and the statements & vote page (with {{:Stewards/elections 2011-2/votes/YOUR USER NAME}}), add a section to the Questions page and list your subpage on the elections page by adding the following text in alphabetical order: "{{se2011-2 candidate indexer|YOUR USER NAME}}". Volunteers will add translations in various languages to it for you.

Provide proof of identity[edit]
