Steward election[edit]

Hi! You obviously found your statement now here: Stewards/elections 2011-2/statements/Quadell. Sorry for having confused you. Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 13:18, 23 August 2011 (UTC) P.S.: Don't forget to create the vote page etc. Thank you![reply]

Yes, I apologize for the confusion. I'm working on it now. Quadell 13:19, 23 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]
  • Hey, Quadell. On English version of your statement it is written "I've done work as an OTRS volunteer, and am a member of the Bot Approvals Group."
    Do you mean, "I am a member" or "as a member"?” Teles (T @ L C S) 16:15, 27 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]
I am a member. In much the same way that one can say "I ate the cake and threw the ball", one can say "I have done this and am that." It's fine to omit the subject in the clause after a conjunction if it is the same as the subject in the clause before the conjunction. Anyway, that's just a long way of saying "I'm a member." :) Quadell 20:02, 27 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Ah, ok. I didn't know it is possible to use that verb this way. I was about to "fix" that. Thanks.” Teles (T @ L C S) 04:09, 28 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Steward election questions[edit]

Hey Michael, you forgot to sign your answers here I think. It will be great if you sign those. Good luck! — Tanvir | Talk ] 06:13, 29 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you. I wasn't sure if it was customary to sign in this situation. Good luck to you in the election! It's good to see so many qualified candidates. Quadell 13:06, 29 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

About cross-wiki experience[edit]

Hello Quadell. I just left a comment on your vote page. I would indeed advise you to get some experience on steward-related areas, such as joining the Small Wiki Monitoring Team and learning from the answers to Steward requests to know how to answer them. Unless you're really against IRC, you should also join the channels #wikimedia-stewards, #wikimedia-gs and #cvn-sw. If you need some help or more details, feel free to ask me, it will be a pleasure for me to answer. I wish you a nice week ! -- Quentinv57 (talk) 21:05, 2 October 2011 (UTC)[reply]

This is all very good advice, thank you. Quadell 12:13, 3 October 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Good luck...[edit]


Based on the results of the vote, according to the percentage obtained, ensure that you have been elected as a steward. Hopefully you can carry out the mandate of the international community with the wise and prudent.

Personally I am very pleased and proud with the results you achieve. Let us work to advance the Wikimedia Foundation. Regards. Wagino 20100516 00:54, 7 October 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you very much. I am deeply honored. I will endeavor to move forward with humility and caution. Quadell 11:52, 7 October 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Congratulations and welcome new steward![edit]

Get ready to be vandalized!

Welcome to the team. As you already know great access come with great responsibilities, so lets talk about some of the places you should have access but you may not have yet (yes, that means you need to ask someone). Being a new steward myself, I also do not know all of them or what I know might be wrong. This is just a personal congratulation message from me to you and the purpose is to introduce (yet again, yes!) with my damn good helping intention and irritating sense of humor!

You all have been added to steward list and chart here on Meta by me (please check if I have screwed myself there). You are eligible to make your intrusion to private IRC channels #wikimedia-checkuser and #wikimedia-privacy. You should have the access already, but if you do not have it yet please bother Barras or DerHexer for your bit (and aye, you should have a registered nickname with a cloak for that). You also have the right to have an account on some private wikis like steward wiki and checkuser wiki (to vandalize of course). Pardon me Your Majesty, but I have no damn idea about who to ask for access in these wikis, ask an existing steward instead. And last but not least, checkuser-l (yell at Mardetanha or Matanya for access) and stewards-l (pay Dungodung for the access) are two private mailing lists that you should have access to screw each other privately.

Thank you very much for being patient!
Pardon me in case you already know all of these!

Lets shut up and abuse our gumdrop buttons!

An open call from Tanvir the no0b stew!

Do not think you have been promoted yesterday, actually it is the correct standard time in Papeete! o.O

Thank you so much! This is incredibly helpful. I'm glad to have guidance for my new role. I'll be exploring these links over the next several weeks, I'm sure. (Two new wikis? I had no idea!) All the best, Quadell 11:56, 7 October 2011 (UTC)[reply]

New steward![edit]

I congratulate you! --►Safir yüzüklü Ceklimesaj 08:30, 7 October 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you! Quadell 11:56, 7 October 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Hey, last few days I didn't see you on IRC channel #wikimedia-stewards, so I'm writing here... Please send me via Special:EmailUser/Leinad your e-mail address - then I will subscribe you to the mailing lists (steward and checkuser) and give access to the wikis (steward and checkuser). You are the last new stewards who don't have access :P LeinaD (t) 21:37, 9 October 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, I was away from the internet this weekend, but I've now sent the e-mail. – Quadell 11:51, 10 October 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Hello Quadell. I just wanted to know if you need some help with the steward tools or so. I noticed that you never used your new status, and I said myself that's probably due to a lack of help. Feel free to contact me if true. Best regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 11:48, 3 December 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Yes it can be a bit overwhelming, and thanks for the offer. I was in contact with another long-time steward for a while, trying to figure out how best to use the new tools, but I'm afraid family issues have come up and I haven't had as much time as I'd like for wiki activities. I'll probably be back mid-January and, if you're still willing to help, I'll e-mail you then. Thanks! – Quadell 13:06, 6 December 2011 (UTC)[reply]
You are always welcome Quadell. :-) — Tanvir | Talk ] 13:09, 6 December 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Okay, no problem, I'm waiting for your mail. Hope to see you soon ! ;-) -- Quentinv57 (talk) 14:26, 13 December 2011 (UTC)[reply]
I have returned, and have e-mailed you. Thanks again. – Quadell 13:14, 10 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Removal of oversight rights[edit]

Hi Quadell. I removed the oversight rights of you on lawiki as I assumed you forgot to do so. And ehm, if you need help, feel free to ask! Regards, Trijnstel 23:02, 21 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

I really thought that I had. Thank you for doing that. – Quadell 14:29, 22 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Re: Withdrawing from confirmations[edit]

Frankly it seems a mockery to me. In your shoes I'd probably prefer to ask the Community for confirmation stating, in honest, "I did yet used my tools due to [dunno why] but I'm asking you for a second chance".--Vituzzu 15:04, 27 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

I understand that you feel this way. But nonetheless, I have decided to withdraw from running for confirmation. I believe that's my choice to make. – Quadell 15:05, 27 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
I'll ask other electcom members for comments. --Vituzzu 15:21, 27 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you. – Quadell 15:47, 27 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Superprotect status[edit]

Dear Quadell, since you are an administrator on a wiki from which no user participated in this discussion, I'd like to make sure you are aware of some recent events which may alter what the Wikimedia Foundation lets you do on your wiki: Superprotect.
