Steward request pages are not votes[edit]

Stewards do not generally want anyone but stewards monkeying with request pages. They want minimum disruption and churning there. They don't want arguments, just whatever facts they might need to make a decision, generally not anything other than the clearest and simplest of analysis. Stewards want quick and simple, generally, and they are overworked and underpaid.

Removing an edit creates another notification for their watchlists, for no purpose. Even gross sock edits, IP crap, etc., will be left there. It does no harm! Obvious vandalism is removed on sight. Recent changes patrollers handle it.

We now have tons of fun on Wikiversity. All best handled by w:WP:RBI. These are trolls and they want to create arguments. They will deliberately say stupid arguments that tempt others into refuting them. There, RBI is okay. Notice that Tegel -- a steward now -- quickly reverted edits to my talk page and also globally locked accounts. We should no longer be creating steward requests unless a substantial period elapses without action. I may create an LTA meta page for this troll. Stewards have seen it all before. They handle spammers with higher spam volume, routinely. I'm not creating documentation at this time. If I want to study something, I will be doing it off-wiki -- and not in public. I am expecting global attack. This troll has done it all before. I know the real name, and will respond as necessary in the real world, but I will make no threats. This user is very, very dangerous, but some of his targets are not easily bullied and he may already be in legal hot water. Every move he makes tightens the noose he has created. From what I know, he escaped, in the past, global steward response. Had he let go, what he is getting now would not have happened. These guys, in order to defeat global attacks like this, will tolerate substantial collateral damage. (i.e., range blocks, and there is a case where a steward blocked the entire eastern seabord of the U.S. to stop a banned user. But we get to sit back and watch. The troll is calling down the thunder, not us.

Heh! may have used nuke. One command, takes seconds. I did not request Tegel do anything. However, if I were going to do so, I'd do it by email or email to the steward request list. The massive disruption, and especially when accompanied by threats of disruption, insured that the stewards would take on the task. And there are people in the community with nothing better to do than watch stuff like this and report where necessary. I don't have to do it. Instead, I will quietly continue research at this time. because I want to create no new incentive for them without necessity. I know much more about them now than I have revealed in public, from independently developed evidence that confirms what others have found. Communities are far stronger than any individual. --Abd (talk) 23:11, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

Didn't know that but steward/checkuser Ruslik0 reverted my deletion of potentially libelous comments from illegal sock puppets, so I hope they are legally okay with having those comments visible. I'm not sure why they referred to it as voting. But, I was overjoyed to see Tegel beat me to reverting all those illegal sock puppet edits! Both recent socks have been globally locked! --Marshallsumter (talk) 23:28, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

Hi Marshallsumter,
I am reaching out to you because you signed up to receive updates about the Global Wikimedia survey.[1]

The event will take place on Tuesday, October 10, at 9:00 am PST (1600 UTC), and the presentation will be in English. You can watch the livestream here, and ask question via IRC on #wikimedia-office.

Old post[edit]

Hey there, I removed an old post from your talk page - it was made by a spamming banned user who abused multiple accounts. Thanks for your Wikiversity work! ~riley (talk) 00:53, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

  • Hey there, I am seeing your steward votes. Just a heads up that for new steward votes, you need to use # {{Se-vote|2020|Marshallsumter|checked=|cb=}} before your vote rationale. Thanks for participating in the election process. ~riley (talk) 01:14, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
