Number of new stewards[edit]

"The Board of Trustees will select stewards from the applicants in this election (expected to be about 10 to 20)." Is 10-20 the number of applicants, or the number that will be selected? Either way would not be accurate: we don't know how many applicants there will be, and 10-20 new stewards seems excessive in my opinion. Majorly (talk) 01:54, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

According to comments from the last election: the more stewards the merrier. Hillgentleman 04:40, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
Let's just dump that parenthetical if we can. I started this by taking an exact copy of the previous one, to reduce the amount of retranslation needed, but that isn't to say that last years wording should be considered perfect! Dumping the parenthetical may take some surgery skill, though, if one can't recognise it in a given language... or we could cut away all the lang's we're not sure about? That is what I did elsewhere for a few things, I kept only en and de. Thoughts? ++Lar: t/c 08:54, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Application guidelines[edit]

The application guidelines linked to are from 2006, and so are probably redundant one way or another. Fresh subpages need to be formulated. --Anonymous DissidentTalk 02:00, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Didn't see this post until after I cleaned them all up. ;-) I did the major fixes, replacing Danny with Cary for identity confirmations (this is not confimed with him, but it fits his job description and is what he already does for CheckUser & Oversight permissions) and replacing Brad with Mike as legal counsel (routine update; Brad no longer works for the Foundation, Mike is the new general counsel). I also hid a line that I did not think was valid anymore, Cary can update the rest later depending upon what he would like done with the identity confirmations (if not just sending them to him).

Good work there! I see several of us are digging in to various areas. Maybe we should coordinate much of the cross page stuff in one place as some of this stuff interlocks (which pages are subpages changed over the course of the last election) and changes in one place can affect others... A comment on this page, we probably should acknowledge that some candidates will have already confirmed identity (because they were CU/Oversight users, or because they had a failed candidacy previously or whatever) and won't need to reconfirm. Presumably. All up to Cary and the board I guess. ++Lar: t/c 08:39, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
Of course, but I think this is covered by the fact it says "contact" and this could include anything from sending the actual confirmation or forwarding whatever Danny sent you originally or just a message saying "I'm already confirmed for CU". :-) Cbrown1023 talk 03:10, 12 November 2007 (UTC)
