GreenReaper (candidacy statement)[edit]

  • Support Support - Not just the best candidate, but for now, the only candidate. GreenReaper (talk) 12:39, 9 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  •  Weak support - Because GreenReaper is the only candidate. Myst (talk) 15:53, 9 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support Support Generally very active ·addshore· talk to me! 14:14, 22 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support Support I think GreenReaper is a very good candidate for this position, because of: 1) pro-active involvement with various Wikibase user community channels (Telegram, mailing list, monthly community calls etc); 2) awareness of ongoing Wikibase-related development issues as well as state of community efforts; 3) proven capacity to provide detailed assistance to newcomers to the community through track record of interactions in Telegram. As an active member of the user community since 2018, I am happy to support this candidacy. Loz.ross (talk) 14:41, 22 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support Support, I was convinced by the candidacy statement and by what I directly saw from the candidate on various places. Cheers, VIGNERON * discut. 15:14, 22 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support Support - responsive & active - (RShigapov (talk) 15:46, 22 July 2021 (UTC))Reply[reply]
  • Support Support - Involved in the user group and in the Wikibase community, helpful and constructive. Envlh (talk) 16:06, 22 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support Support - I have only positive experiences with this user. Saarik (talk) Saarik (talk) 16:40, 22 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sadik Shahadu (candidacy statement)[edit]

  •  Weak support While Sadik hasn't been very active within the Wikibase community in the last year, what he's done during that year is relevant to this position. He'd bring experience of the affiliate role that I lack, and he's expressed the desire to introduce Wikibase to communities in Africa, which aligns with Wikimedia movement goals.

  • Support Support ·addshore· talk to me! 14:14, 22 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Neutral Neutral not fully convinced but no reason to oppose either. Cheers, VIGNERON * discut. 15:35, 22 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Oppose Oppose - No involvement in the user group. Their candidacy statement doesn't even use the word Wikibase. Envlh (talk) 16:10, 22 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
