Can all membrs of the community vote here?[edit]

Yes I know one needs to have x numbers of edits to participate in this vote, but... What is the point of getting voters to spend time figuring out how to fill in the complicated Template:Se-vote?

I won't even try to explain my objection to the use of Template:Sr-heading at the top of each section. 14:18, 14 February 2021 (UTC) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ottawahitech (talk) 14:18, 14 February 2021 (UTC)

Ottawahitech, no one needs to fill out that template. There's a big "Vote" button at the top, as I pointed out to you here – it's hard to overlook. The voting requirements are here – they are prominently linked at Stewards/Elections 2021. Blablubbs (talk) 14:27, 14 February 2021 (UTC)
Hi, as mentioned below the vote button is not working so you have to vote manually but as said before the Se-vote template dosen't needs to be filled, you can just put # ~~~~ and the formatting will be done by someone else. However you can fill the template by yourself which is what I've did, the template is filled as follows:

{{Se-vote|2021|(your username here)|checked=|cb=}} , replacing (your username here) with your username, but leave everything else just as it is. Anyway thanks User3749 (talk) 04:40, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

Why can others modify what I write, but I cannot do the same?[edit]

Why are some users not allowed to change comments made by others.Example. while other are permitted to do so. Example. Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 14:35, 14 February 2021 (UTC)

@Ottawahitech The simple answer is that you aren't supposed to change candidate statements without their explict approval. Like when you request for permissions, someone alter your request, will you be happy with it? Please ask candidates before editing. As of adding the template, the instructions are very clear it is needed for a vote, hence, someone adding the template is proper. Thanks. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 14:39, 14 February 2021 (UTC)
I didn't modify your comment, I fixed your vote. The alternative would have been to just revert it entirely. Blablubbs (talk) 14:54, 14 February 2021 (UTC)

Issue with Vote Button Script?![edit]

Wondering if there is an issue with the Vote Button, voted now 3 times from different browsers (yesterday and today) and Vote ("Yes") is not being inserted?!? --CommanderWaterford (talk) 07:39, 18 February 2021 (UTC)

@CommanderWaterford: If the script isn't working you can always just manually edit the section and put # ~~~~ and someone will format it for you. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 18:34, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
Hi, I am having the same issue, I just tried to vote yes but I tried it and it doesn't do anything, even when I tried multiple times. I will try to manually vote, thanks User3749 (talk) 04:20, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

Hi again, and I was trying to vote with the button again and that time it did work. I found that that only happens when you are not autoconfirmed, because the se-vote template will add external links which requires a verification which can't be done with the tool. You should have no problem with the tool if you are autoconfirmed. Thanks User3749 (talk) 12:08, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

  1. To clarify, you the person who was blocked for blatant anti-Semitism on enwiki, are opposing someone for using a gender neutral, inclusive term? Praxidicae (talk) 16:37, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
    Yes. Beaneater00 (talk) 16:39, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
