Main page Stewards (2020 confirmation) talk page
This page allows for general discussion and questions regarding the 2020 steward confirmations.

Final decisions (by stewards)[edit]

Confirmation discussions will remain open till 7 March. This may be extended to two weeks for one or more confirmations at the discretion of the Election Committee if the committee believes further input is required before concluding. The Election Committee will close these discussions and implement the outcome (which also means making a decision in non-obvious cases).

This page is for steward discussion only. Please do not comment in this box unless you are a steward.

Stewards: Please leave your comments right below the boxes after reviewing the actual confirmation comments and your understanding of relevant policies. You may summarize the confirmation discussions in individual comments, but no overall summary is given.

Status Candidate Notes

Steward consensus[edit]

According to Template:Steward confirmations, stewards will disuss the confirmations. There is a phrase which baffles me ("which also means making a decision in non-obvious cases"). When is a confirmation case obvious and when not? Is there an approximate threshold, such as 60% or so? Thank you 4nn1l2 (talk) 12:40, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

It might become clearer if you look at what the whole process is: first, "stewards [...] are invited to review the confirmation comments and to give their impression of the outcome (consensus to confirm/remove etc.)"; then "The Election Committee will close these discussions and implement the outcome (which also means making a decision in non-obvious cases)", so non-obvious cases are those where the stewards as a whole are divided in what they see as the outcome. This is an example of a non-obvious case (the decision which ElectCom made in the end can be seen in the table at the top of the page). --MF-W 16:39, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
