  • Personal info: Hello, I am Eptalon; I have been active mostly on the Simple English Wikipedia, where I hold the status of checkuser, oversighter, bureaucrat and admin. I am a well-experienced editor there, with over 30.000 edits in about four years. I regularly use IRC, and I think I could put my language skills to the benefit of the project as a whole. For this reason, I would like to nominate myself as a candidate for the 2011 steward elections.

  • Informationen zur Person: Hallo, ich bin Eptalon. Ich bin bisher vor allem in der Simple-English-Wikipedia („einfaches Englisch“) aktiv, wo ich die Rollen Checkuser, Oversighter, Bürokrat und Admin habe. Ich bin ein erfahrener Editor und habe in etwa vier Jahren etwas über 30.000 Edits auf Simple zusammengebracht. Ich bin öfters im IRC anzutreffen, und dachte, ich könnte meine Sprachkenntnisse dem Projekt als Ganzem zur Verfügung stellen. Aus diesem Grunde kandidiere ich bei den Steward-Wahlen 2011.

  • Información personal: Hola, soy Eptalon. Estoy mayoritariamente activo en la Wikipedia en Inglés simple (Simple English), donde soy administrador, burócrata, checkuser y oversighter. Me considero un editor muy experimentado con más de 30 000 ediciones en 4 años. Uso el IRC habitualmente y pienso que puedo usar mis dotes políglotas para beneficiar a los projectos. Por esta razón, me nomino para las elecciones a steward de este año 2011.

  • Henkilökohtaiset tiedot: Hei, olen Eptalon; olen enimmäkseen aktiivinen selkokielisessä Englanninkielisessä Wikipediassa, missä toimin osoitepaljastimen käyttäjänä, häivyttäjänä, byrokraattina ja ylläpitäjänä. Olen kokenut käyttäjä siellä ja tehnyt yli 30 000 muokkausta noin neljän vuoden aikana. Käytän IRCiä säännöllisesti, ja uskon että kielitaidostani voisi olla hyötyä hankkeelle kokonaisuudessaan. Tästä syystä haluaisin asettua ehdolle vuoden 2011 ylivalvojavaaleihin.

  • Renseignements personnels : Bonjour, je m'appelle Eptalon, et jusqu'à présent, mon activité etait focalisé sur le projet "Simple English", où j'ai les privilèges de "checkuser", "oversight", "bureaucrat", et administrateur/sysop.

Je pense que je pourrais mettre mes connaissainces de langues á disposition du project; pour cette raison, je postule pour les élections "Steward" de 2011.

Pictogram voting oppose.svg No[edit]

  1. Lolsimon 23:59, 7 February 2011 (UTC) Trusted, but a little bit more steward-related experience (ie on meta and crosswiki vandalism etc.) would be appreciated in my opinion.
  2. Oppose Oppose - Per Lolsimon. Neelix 17:13, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
  3. Oppose Oppose after the discussion in the "comment" section below, I've some serious doubts about his capacity to self-evaluate. Boasting a level of "almost native speaker" of French is not compatible with committing basic grammar mistakes, besides boasting an "advanced" level of Italian, Spanish and Portuguese implies being able to write in those languages. An user with "de-M, en-4, fr-3, it/pt/sp-1" as language skills can still be a good steward, but I think a more honest and mature approach is necessary in a good-faith-based community.

  5. Per Lolsimon and Noieraieri. odder (talk) 17:07, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
  6. Oppose Oppose I find this user's steward statement to be too short and his self-description on his Simple Wikipedia page to be an insufficient description of his work. I oppose due to his intentionally presenting a small amount information about himself as I would prefer a steward who is more open, self-descriptive, and presenting of whatever community ties he has. Blue Rasberry (talk) 16:15, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
  7. Oppose Oppose, as per Bluerasberry's statement above. –Tommy Kronkvist, 20:30, 27 February 2011 (UTC).

  1. I trust Eptalon a lot, but the lack of crosswiki experience prevents me from supporting. Just increase your crosswiki activity, and I'll definitely support you. Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 14:02, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
  2. per Pmlineditor. 98% of edits in simplewiki... --MF-W 18:46, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
    despite his claim to speak 7 languages at advanced or native level, he only published his statement in English, German and French, the latter with a grammar mistake. I would like him to clarify on this matter Noieraieri 11:28, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
    Let me first clairify: There was a revision of French orthography in the 1990s. The result was a change of many forms of the French language; If the "grammatical error" is what I think it was, I would rather label it a "typo" (Yes, I know, connaître (know, vb) -> connAIsance (knowlede, noun, I wrote connEsance). The reason I didn't write my statement in Spanish, was that the Spanish language uses many accents; and that I haven't figured out how to create some of these with my keyboard); As to "some" of the "languages", they are in fact dialects of German; all speakers of these languages also speak German.--Eptalon 21:02, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
    I'm sorry to insist, but that's not what I'm referring to: in the sentence "avec plus de 30.000 modifications dans un peu plus de quatre ans" you have used the preposition "dans", which I feel is not correct. I'm not very proficient at French myself, so I could easily be wrong. This are skills you claim: "de, en-4, fr-4, la-3, es-3, it-3, pt-3".; I'm no less than astonished to discover that Spanish, Italian and Portuguese are dialects of German. Noieraieri 09:54, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
    The other option there is in this case is en, however, since the apposition is qualified, dans is probably correct; en may be correct, however, we are not talking about en quatre ans; en un peu plus de quatre doesn't sound right; however I do not have a grammar handy, so I may be wrong. As to my knowledge of Italian and Portugese: it is passive, those people usually understand Spanish; for this reason, I did not write my statement in those languages. And yes, Alemannic is a dialect of German... --Eptalon 22:03, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
    Actually "en" is the correct option, "dans" is not correct here. Capsot 11:13, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

  4. Almost no cross-wiki activity even in the wikis in the languages user knows on 3 or 4 level looks strange — NickK 17:21, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
  5. Neutral Neutral After reading Noieraieri's comments, I have to admit that he made a real interesting and good point since Eptalon insists with some kind of bad faith in order to explain his mistakes, which are recurring since "connaissance" needs two -s- and even though the sentence "en un peu plus de quatre" might not sound correct to you, it absolutely is (the rest is not at all!)! So, my conclusion is that your skills in French should be 3 and not 4, but most importantly you do not seem to accept corrections from others and I do not like at all the following statement "those people usually understand Spanish" which in my opinion is quite far from courteous, what do you mean with it, that Spanish is more important than their languages (an underlying conclusion is that your skills in Spanish are higher than in Portuguese (with a -u-) and Italian which should then deserve 2 or less)? Capsot 11:25, 10 February 2011 (UTC) PD: After this I would normally vote no, but since you seem to show interest in languages and that so many users trust you, I won't be so negative, good luck!
    If you classify "language skills" into six levels, what exactly constitutes the difference between two such levels? Suppose an editor is able to determine his or her mother tongue, what about editors who are bi-lingual? - One of the two languages will be worse than the other. As to my French skills, I have actively learnt the language in school, have lived in the French-speaking part of the country for many years; I have done half of my "higher education" in that language. - So rest assured, I know French. As it is not my native tongue, it is certainly not fr-N; as to the other levels, who/what determines the difference between the levels? --Eptalon 21:38, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
    As to the difference between languages: When written, Portuguese "looks very similar to" Spanish - there are extra letters or accents here and there, but someone speaking Spanish should have no trouble understanding Portuguese; note: I say "when written" - this is not the case for spoken Portuguese; similarly someone who learnt Portuguese should have little trouble understanding written Spanish. As to Italian: someone who learnt Latin will have no toruble recognising the written forms, even though Latin is a language that works with suffixes, and Italian is a language that works with prepositions. A word about French perhaps: In France, there is a body that regulates the language; the French-speaking communities in Belgium, and Switzerland do not recognize that body. "Septante","Huitante", "Nonante" (70;80;90) are perfectly fine forms (in Switzerland, and Belgium, but not recognised by this regulatory body); besides "quate-vingt-dix-neuf" (99) is harder to parse than "nonante-neuf"...--Eptalon 10:14, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
    This does not change the fact that "dans quatre ans" means "starting in from years" while "en quatre ans" means "during four years"; it's the same in every flavour of French. You could have checked it yourself in any grammar. I see that admitting you have made a honest mistake is not part of your nature. Noieraieri 09:21, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
    Man, I live in the French state and I am a native speaker so please don't try to patronize me/us with a few linguistic thingies (I think I could teach you a few things...), just recognize overtly you made a wrong statement once and for all! Is this beyond your capacity? It is not the end of the world to be wrong from time to time, not being able to recognize it, well... no comment... especially for a Steward (you are lucky I don't change my vote...). Bye now!

  6. No matter how I trust you, you don't seem to have much cross-wiki experience. Maybe next year. --Mercy 14:39, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
  7. The language problem explained by Noieraieri and Capsot is, to me, an important handicap. --Demonaire Rai 17:09, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
