Main page Stewards (2021 confirmation) talk page

This page allows for general discussion and questions regarding the 2021 steward confirmations.

Final decisions (by stewards)[edit]

Confirmation discussions will remain open from 27 February 2021, 06:00 (UTC) till 06 March 2021, 14:00 (UTC). 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.

The summaries below provide a very strict overview of the most relevant confirmation comments.

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.

  • After carefully reading the concerns raised here, I am not inclined to 'confirm' due to the loss of confidence caused by the incidents. Although I personally trust Rxy and admire his work as a Steward as well, I feel the exhausting controversy has ruined this confirmation. Rxy is a competent steward and also a tech-skilled one. One may say it could be dealt with differently, but others wouldn't give him a pass on mistakes like these, regardless of what could have been done afterwards. Time heals all wounds. RadiX 06:00, 27 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Remove, with regret. While confirmations are a very different process from elections, rxy lost all of his advanced accesses at all content projects, and was blocked for a considerable period of time. I cannot reasonably vote Confirm for a candidate who would likely not pass regular elections, were they running for the first time (and not merely seeking confirmation).

  • Regretful remove per Radix. Rxy is clearly competent and skilled, but has unfortunately lost the community's trust, and thus can't be confirmed. Thanks for all your work! —Thanks for the fish! talkcontribs 23:23, 1 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
