  • Personal info: I'm a former WMF staff member (contractor), former intern, current volunteer press-contact, and an admin on English Wikipedia, Meta, and Ten-Wiki, as well as an OTRS volunteer (mostly legal queue). I'm also an attorney. For the past several months I've worked as a community associate for the 2010 fundraiser for the WMF (my contract ends this week). In that role, I did a fair amount of monitoring of smaller wikis, and I'm familiar with modifying user rights (my staff account was flagged to do so), so I'm already familiar with some of the Steward functions. I was also a temporary admin on meta on my staff account. Finally, I am one of few users who handles emergency incidents at emergency@wikimedia.org. I'm also an active editor, with around 19000 edits (primarily to English Wikipedia, but this spans across 30 projects or so between my staff and volunteer accounts). As you can tell from my history, I've been trusted to do a lot of sensitive work for the foundation, and one of the things I found myself consistently needing was stewards to handle various small cross-wiki requests. I would like to give back as a volunteer by helping with those requests for others. Oh, and as a helpful bonus, my new job will be paying for me to go to language school for a year, so I'll have some multi-lingual capability as well.

  • Informationen zur Person: Ich bin Administrator auf der englischen Wikipedia, Meta und Ten-Wiki sowie im OTRS, wo ich mich vor allem mit rechtlichen Aspekten befasse, aktiv. Die letzten Monate habe ich als community associate für den WMF-Fundraiser gearbeitet (der Vertrag endete diese Woche). In dieser Funktion habe ich bereits mitgeholfen, viele kleinere Wikis zu schützen, und bin mit den Konventionen zur Ab- und Zuerkennung von Benutzerrechten (mein Staff-Benutzerkonto war mit der Funktion ausgestattet) sowie anderen Steward-Funktionen vertraut. Zudem hatte mein Staff-Konto bereits einmal reguläre Adminrechte, hier auf Meta. Ich bin einer der wenigen Benutzer, die Notfälle via emergency@wikimedia.org bearbeiten, und aktiver Autor mit rund 19000 Edits; Schwerpunkt auf en.wp (insgesamt verteilen sich die Bearbeitungen beider Konten auf über 30 Projekte). Aufgrund dieser Erfahrungen und der damit verbundenen Wahrnehmung sensibler Aufgaben für die Wikimedia-Stiftung weiß ich, dass deutlich mehr Stewards unter anderem zwecks Abarbeitung diverser kleinerer Transwiki-Anfragen benötigt werden. Ich würde daher gern an diesem Punkt als Freiwilliger etwas zurückgeben und mithelfen, diese Aufgaben zu erledigen. Oh, und als hilfreicher Bonus wird meine neue Arbeit mir zusätzlich einen einjährigen Fremdsprachenkurs bezahlen und daher werde ich alsbald einige multilinguale Fähigkeiten aufbieten können.

  • Henkilökohtaiset tiedot: Olen ylläpitäjä englanninkielisessä Wikipediassa, Metassa ja Ten-Wikissä sekä vapaaehtoinen OTRS:ssä (enimmäkseen lakiasioissa). Olen toiminut yhteisön edustajana WMF:n vuoden 2010 varainkeruuhankkeessa (sopimukseni umpeutuu tällä viikolla). Tuossa roolissa seurasin melko paljon pieniä wikejä ja olen perillä käyttöoikeuksien muuttamisesta (henkilökuntatunnuksellani oli oikeudet siihen), ja olen valmiiksi perehtynyt osaan ylivalvojien tehtävistä. Olin myös väliaikainen ylläpitäjä Metassa henkilökuntatunnuksellani. Lopuksi, olen myös yksi harvoista käyttäjistä joka vastaa hätätilanteisiin emergency@wikimedia.org-osoitteessa. Olen aktiivinen käyttäjä ja minulla on noin 19000 muokkausta (pääasiassa englanninkieliseen Wikipediaan, mutta lukema jakautuu noin 30 eri hankkeelle henkilökunta- ja vapaaehtoiskäyttäjätunnuksellani). Kuten voitte nähdä historiastani, minulle on uskottu paljon arkaluonteista työtä säätiön puolesta, ja yksi asia jota olen huomannut tarvitsevani jatkuvasti ovat ylivalvojat, jotta erinäiset pienet wikienväliset pyynnöt saadaan toteutettua. Haluaisin antaa jotain takaisin vapaaehtoisena auttamalla toteuttamaan noita pyyntöjä myös toisille. Ja vielä: hyödyllisenä bonuksena uusi työpaikkani kustantaa minulle vuoden kielikoulun, joten tulen saamaan sitä kautta myös monikielisiä valmiuksia.

  • Persoonlijke informatie: Ik ben moderator op de Engelstalige Wikipedia, Meta en Ten-Wiki, en ook OTRS-vrijwilliger (vooral juridische zaken). De afgelopen maanden ben ik werkzaam geweest als community associate voor de WMF-fundraiser (mijn contract eindigt deze week). In die rol heb ik aardig wat kleinere wiki's gemonitord en ik ben bekend met het wijzigen van gebruikersrechten (mijn staf-account had die rechten), dus ik ben al bekend met de meeste stewardsfuncties. Ik was met mijn staf-account ook tijdelijk moderator op Meta. Tenslotte ben ik een van de weinige gebruikers die incidenten op emergency@wikimedia.org behandelen. Ik ben ook een actieve gebruiker, met ongeveer 19.000 bewerkingen (vooral op de Engelstalige Wikipedia, maar ze omvatten zo'n 30 projecten met mijn staf-account en mijn vrijwilligersaccount. Zoals u aan mijn geschiedenis kunt zien is me veel gevoelig werk voor de Foundation toevertrouwd en een van de dingen die ik steeds weer nodig bleek te hebben waren stewards om verschillende cross wiki-verzoeken af te handelen. Ik zou graag als vrijwilliger iets teruggeven door anderen bij zulke verzoeken te helpen. Oh, en als nuttige bonus, mijn nieuwe baan gaat een jaar lang talenschool voor me betalen, dus ik zal ook enige vaardigheden in meerdere talen hebben.

  • Личная информация: Я бывший сотрудник WMF, бывший стажер, в настоящее время доброволец, работающий с прессой, и администратор английской Википедии, Меты, Ten-Wiki и OTRS-агент (в основном, занимаюсь правовыми вопросами). Я - адвокат. Последние несколько месяцев я работал над сбором пожертвований 2010 для WMF (мой контракт истекает на этой неделе). В этом качестве я достаточно много следил за малыми языковыми разделами, и я знаком с изменением прав (мой рабочий аккаунт был для этого предназначен), поэтому я уже знаком с некоторыми функциями стюардов. Я также временно был администратором на Мете. Наконец, я один из немногих участников, которые обрабатывают экстренные сообщения emergency@wikimedia.org. Я также являюсь активным редактором с 19000 правок (в основном, в английской Википедии, но также в 30 других проектах). Как вы видите из моей истории, мне доверяли заниматься большим количеством важных задач для Фонда, и в чем я постоянно нуждался, - так это в стюардах, обрабатывающих кросс-вики запросы. Я хочу помочь с этими запросами в качестве добровольца. Кроме того, моя новая работа оплачивает мне годовое изучение языка, так что я буду обладать определенными языковыми навыками.

  • Лични подаци: Ја сам администратор на Википедији на енглеском језику, на Мети и на Ten-Wiki, а такође и ОТРС волонтер. У протеклих неколико месеци сам био запослен током кампање прикупљања средстава у 2010. години за Задужбину Викимедија (уговор ми истиче ове недеље). Обављајући ту функцију, доста сам пратио мале викије, а упознат сам и са променом корисничких права (мој налог је имао ту могућност), тако да сам већ упознат са неким стјуардским функцијама. Такође сам био привремени администратор на Мети. На крају, ја сам један од неколико корисника који решава хитне случајеве на emergency@wikimedia.org. Такође сам активан корисник, са око 19.000 измена (углавном на Википедији на енглеском језику, мада се то односи на 30 пројеката или тако нешто). Као што се види из моје историје, поверено ми је да обављам много осетљивих послова за Задужбину и једна од ствари које су ми стално биле потребне су били стјуарди да реше различите захтеве. Волео бих да се вратим као добровољац и да помогнем око тих захтева. Ох, као бонус, на новом послу ће ми бити плаћено да годину дана похађам школу за језике, тако да ћу располагати и одређеним знањем других језика.

Barring him in favour of someone less experienced just because they are bilingual seems a false argument... some one who is bilingual in English and Latin is going to be more useful exactly how? Is there a particular language that we agree that we need more stewards able to speak: Or do these objectors each have preferred languages (probably their own) which they would like stewards to have?

  50. In the absence of editors who can speak every language I think it inevitable that sometimes stewards will be operating outside a language that they speak.

  66. Support Support Competence and trustworthiness are more important than a huge number of cross-wiki contributions in multiple languages. It seems to me like part of the role of a Steward is being able to use your best judgement even if you're not totally familiar with a particular language or situation. I think Swatjester has great judgement, and thus I trust him to be a Steward whether he speakers four languages or not. Steven Walling (talk) 22:38, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

I'm not very convinced about the lacking crosswiki thing either, so I have to convince myself a bit because having a bit more experience with other language wikis would be helpful. So let's just give him a chance since he seems to be a trusted, experienced and also engaged user (and we need engaged people here) with the capability of reading other languages and with difficulty also writing them. There are less stewards now in comparision with earlier times, and we need more though there also are global admins helping out now. I think he can help with the work that surely isn't getting less with more wikis and more sides on every one of them and I'm convinced that we really need more helping hands and also more stewards with that. I also think he's tearing language borders down ;-) with automatic translators help at the time and he'll manage that cause he seems to be able to communicate in different languages despite of not speaking them well enough and he promises to learn more of that in a few months. And if you won't get through this election come back half a year later and run in the next elections again.

    Support Support I would like to offer not just a support but a ringing endorsement of Dan for Steward. I've been contributing to en.wiki for most of a decade now, and one of the most consistently helpful users and admins around is Swatjester. Not only on wiki, but through our shared participation on the unblock-l mailing list, Dan goes above and beyond the call of duty not willing to pass the buck should something require a bit of sweat equity to make sure the job gets done. --Mask 15:15, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

  77. Support Support I think I was a bit hasty in my oppose vote. After looking into it a bit more and thinking about it further (after a note from Swatjester) I find myself thinking along the same lines as Abd above. We do not gain a multi-lingual steward by opposing Swatjester. The judgement calls I have see from him have been spot on in my opinion and that is what we need in a steward, excellent judgement and experience, something he has.

  5. Very little cross-wiki work, edits only on english-speaking wikis which needn't stewards (on Drosenthal account, contribs to other wikis consist only in setting up its userpage). Besides, we've enough english-speaking stewards for meta/global work. Cenarium 18:47, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

  15. Teles (Talk @ C G) 00:45, 9 February 2011 (UTC) - O conhecimento de outras línguas não é pré-requisito, mas é importante e isto não resolve esse problema (Google tradutor?). Pouca atividade crosswiki no combate ao vandalismo. Além disso, eu acho que é conflito de interesse um candidato votar em si mesmo, o que deveria ser evitado.

  40. Sorry, I firstly wouldn't vote at all in this election, but this self-supporting is a clear no-go for me, even if there is no rule against it. Voting for yourself in such an election doesn't really look good and gives people not really the best impression. This self-supporting is the only reason I vote here at all. -Barras 23:49, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting neutral.svg Neutral[edit]

  1. seems good candidate , but never seen you around and being only English speaker is another concern which makes me hesitant to support Mardetanha talk 00:36, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
  2. Neutral Neutral Hi, Swat. I'd like to pass on the same sage advice I received in 2009, and explain why I am abstaining from supporting you this go-round. You are a good EnWiki sysop and you volunteer in many ways behind the scenes. However, each project in the wikimediaverse has its own "flavor" and style, as it were. The vast majority of your wikiverse edits come from from EnWikiP. Someone coming, as I did, from what is perceived as the w:800 lb gorilla project does need to demonstrate that they are comfortable in understanding the climate and adhering to the guidelines of multiple other projects. Showing significant cross-wiki activity, even on another English-speaking project such as the Commons or Wikiquote, demonstrates that one can be a member of differing communities and will not let the mores and climate of one overwhelm the other. I'm not opposing, because I don't think that there is anything that you would do that would be inimical to the projects, but I would be more comfortable supporting if over the next year you showed a significant contribution to Meta and other projects. As for multilingualism; it certainly would be a plus in my mind. Personally, I give extra weight to knowing other languages, as the stewards job is made much easier when one is fluent in one of the languages of our larger projects (Spanish, Chinese, Portuguese, etc.). I do not think that stewards must be multilingual, but having that facility would certainly have helped, and will help in the future. -- Avi 03:45, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

  10. Neutral Neutral Swatjester is known for great work on en:wp, but has little crosswiki work to judge by, and I had a concern similar to Jyothis's about recent crosswiki work which gives me pause. More involvement with projects with different policies and cultures, including smaller projects, would make me more comfortable supporting, and I second Avi's comments above.
