Proof of identity[edit]

"For some ideas regarding valid proof of identity, see the Kansas Department of Revenue's Proof of identity or search Google." - This is very confusing. What do you mean by that? Is it a test for the candidate? Hillgentleman 04:58, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

It was what was used last year. It is supposed to give you an example of items that you can provide to Cary that would prove your identity. i.e. on that page is lists a scan or your driver's license or a scan of you passport as valid proof of identify. Cbrown1023 talk 05:20, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
If we can we should find somewhere for people to go for more info rather than sending them to Mike Godwin first... he's rather busy I would expect... I think the mailing list post reference Majorly removed wasn't bad but there certainly might be better ones. Maybe in the CU/Privacy policy stuff there is something to lift? ++Lar: t/c 16:26, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
Passport/driver's license would be fine. I have spoken with Anthere who will hopefully be posting an announcement to the mailing list soon. Majorly (talk) 16:32, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
Great! Then we can reference that, well done. ++Lar: t/c 17:17, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
That was just a quick-fix, we don't want them to send it to Brad because he is no longer general counsel, I find no problem with it being altered. Cbrown1023 talk 03:16, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Reduandant requirements[edit]

"# have a user account created on or before 01 January 2009;

  1. have made at least 600 edits before 01 November 2008;"

Aren't 600 edits before 01 Nov 2008 implies account created before 01 Jan 2009? 77.253.83.199 17:08, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Theoretically. See Talk:Stewards/elections 2009 (which has a LOT more discussion) for why this is worded this way. (i.e Blame the Board requirements writers :) ) ++Lar: t/c 14:29, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Stewards/elections 2009/Guidelines#Prerequisites[edit]

"active account on Meta" - How are we measuring activity? I don't think we would require as much activity as Meta-sysops. Hillgentleman 03:26, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Probably not. However, note that some people created their account only seconds before creating their statement. We need some measure of familiarity with Meta.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 20:11, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
I think it would better if we change the line "have an account on Meta with userpage linked to your homewiki" to have an account on Meta with userpage linked to your home wiki before beginning of the election .--Mardetanha talk 20:47, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
Automatic eligibility checker is wrong?! As far as I know I don't "have an account on Meta with userpage linked to your homewiki" (whatever the heck that means) but the eligibility checker says that I'm fine to vote. 68.251.43.220 06:36, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

Out of date translations of guidelines[edit]

In a lot of translations of guidelines needs updating, missing information about "have an account on Meta with userpage linked to your homewiki". Leinad 11:36, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Block requirements[edit]

Assume that a user meets all requirements, but is blocked on their home wiki. There is no wiki where they are unblocked and meet all the requirements. I am assuming that such a user should not be able to vote. Any reason why this should not be the case? ST47 01:09, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

It seems that the block requirement is only technical - to vote you would have to not be blocked on meta. Since many blocks are temporary, such as 3RR, being blocked on your own wiki really should not affect voting requirements. Apteva 13:57, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

page location[edit]

This page has existed since 2006, yet it has been placed under the 2009 election. Should it be moved each year (i.e. under the 2010 election when it happens, then under the 2011 election, etc), or moved to a more permanent location (e.g. under Stewards/Elections) ? --John Vandenberg 23:43, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

This page was previously "Stewards/Application guidelines", and it was used for the 2007 election. --John Vandenberg 23:59, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
A new page has been created for the 2010 election. Stewards/elections 2010/Guidelines. --John Vandenberg 23:52, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
