Mr. man

Hello! I requesting adminship. Require that post because I know that I charge, is already admin on 2 projects. Thank you. (WT-en) Mr. man 07:54, 2 February 2010 (EST)

I'm afraid you haven't been here long enough to understand our policies. For example, Template:Coord, which you created, is a copyright violation taken straight from Wikipedia:Template:Coord. You may be an administrator on two other projects, but we have our own standards. (WT-en) LtPowers 09:24, 2 February 2010 (EST)
I can get used to these standards, learn fast. Can I become a manager on the project size. I did that format because I thought that should put the details, but I promise that I will not copy on en.wp. (WT-en) Mistertalk 10:02, 2 February 2010 (EST)
  • Oppose --(WT-en) Jonboy 11:01, 2 February 2010 (EST)
  • Oppose, of course. User had been a member of Wikivoyage for 59 minutes before nominating himself for adminstrator privileges. Has no grasp of what the site is about nor its policies and procedures. Indeed it would be impossible for anyone to fulfil those criteria after enjoying some 59 minutes of membership. --(WT-en) Burmesedays 11:07, 2 February 2010 (EST)
  • Oppose, reminds me of a certain user on Korean Wikivoyage, hmmmm. --(WT-en) Stefan (sertmann) talk 11:15, 2 February 2010 (EST)
I understand distrust sir, but I know what to do a sysop. I experienced I can handle a project. Is one problem of my name, because this name is must known, and there en.wp this name but I assure you that come from Korea. (WT-en) Mistertalk 11:19, 2 February 2010 (EST)
In any case - You don't qualify under any of the "requirements" for adminship, in particular you lack "a track record of at least a few months" and even then your English is barely comprehensible I'm afraid, which is a real issue when doing janitorial work. Please stop wasting everyone's time and withdraw you nomination. There are candidates way more qualified than you are. Practice your English, do some solid work in your home region, and participate in area's where you are able to comprehend what's going on - and then come back in a years time. --(WT-en) Stefan (sertmann) talk 11:33, 2 February 2010 (EST)

OK...--(WT-en) Mistertalk 11:36, 2 February 2010 (EST)

Globe-trotter has been here for a good two years, and has been busy all across the Wikivoyage globe, creating dozens of maps, making useful contributions to various discussions, organizing content, working on the CotM, and creating a fine star article for good measure. He(?) is a pleasure to work with, interacting well with regulars and new users alike, and I believe he has clearly demonstrated a high level of proficiency with our site's arcane rules. He does an awful lot of organizational and clean-up work for which I think the extra buttons would be handy! --(WT-en) Peter Talk 19:29, 8 March 2010 (EST)

  • Support. --(WT-en) Peter Talk 19:29, 8 March 2010 (EST)
  • Support. --(WT-en) Texugo 19:32, 8 March 2010 (EST)
  • Strong support. He has a good grasp of the way things work around here and is an excellent communicator. And... why do we always assume (I am sure correctly) he eh? :). --(WT-en) Burmesedays 21:26, 8 March 2010 (EST)
  • Support -- (WT-en) Colin Jensen 23:15, 8 March 2010 (EST)
  • Support - I thought g-t was already an admin! Strong support here. (WT-en) PerryPlanet Talk 23:19, 8 March 2010 (EST)
  • Support. (WT-en) Gorilla Jones 01:01, 9 March 2010 (EST)
  • Wow I'm honored! Of course I accept the nomination for admin, I'm glad with the big support in my favor. Oh, and yes, it's true that I am a he ^^ :) --(WT-en) globe-trotter 09:47, 9 March 2010 (EST)
  • Support - I thought you were already an admin as well! :) (WT-en) Nrms 09:56, 9 March 2010 (EST)
  • Support. -- (WT-en) Ryan • (talk) • 10:40, 9 March 2010 (EST)
  • Support (WT-en) jan 11:43, 23 March 2010 (EDT)
  • Support, and the shiny red buttons are now granted. (WT-en) Jpatokal 07:04, 28 March 2010 (EDT)

During the 9 months I have been hanging around here, and probably longer, Claus has been one of the most active Wikivoyage users.

  • He is one of the small handful of us who tirelessly patrol edits on a daily basis
  • He has done a great deal of organisational work for various China articles, for London, and I am sure elsewhere
  • He has recently started making Wikivoyage maps
  • He is is a polite, friendly and well-informed communicator
  • He has demonstrated a good grasp of the way things work around here, and is not shy to ask when he is not sure

All-in-all I struggle to think of anyone who would make better use of the extra buttons. --(WT-en) Burmesedays 05:04, 30 March 2010 (EDT)

  • Support Good understanding of policies, regular patroller and plus for the community. (WT-en) jan 05:21, 30 March 2010 (EDT)
  • Support Good user with good contributions. (WT-en) Mister(talk|contribs) 11:11, 30 March 2010 (EDT)
  • Strong Support Provided he wants the extra buttons, of course. -- (WT-en) Ryan • (talk) • 16:01, 30 March 2010 (EDT)
  • Support. I can't think of a better way to put it than the way (WT-en) Burmesedays did. --(WT-en) inas 18:39, 30 March 2010 (EDT)
  • Support(WT-en) cacahuate talk 02:08, 31 March 2010 (EDT)
  • Support - (WT-en) Texugo 02:49, 31 March 2010 (EDT)
  • Support. I was about to nominate him ;) --(WT-en) Peter Talk 20:22, 31 March 2010 (EDT)
  • Support, always nice to have more skilled hands for the routine cleanup. - (WT-en) D. Guillaime 21:47, 31 March 2010 (EDT)
  • Support, great contributor to Wikivoyage. --(WT-en) globe-trotter 04:54, 1 April 2010 (EDT)
  • Accept, thank you for trusting me the more powerful tools, I will strive to use them wisely, --(WT-en) ClausHansen 05:42, 1 April 2010 (EDT)
  • Support. Always impressed when I come across his work. (WT-en) Gorilla Jones 18:27, 1 April 2010 (EDT)
  • Support, and switch toggled. (WT-en) Jpatokal 07:04, 28 March 2010 (EDT)

User:(WT-en) Wrh2 (for Bureaucrat)

We could use another (or rather, an active) bureaucrat. IMO, the only qualification needed for this position beyond those of sysop is that the person is around often and/or easy to contact when the odd name change or status switch is needed. Many of our admins fit this bill, but Ryan has done so for a longer period of time ;) As an added bonus, this might give him extra reason to spend more time here, and any increase in his activity on-site is unequivocally a good thing for Wikivoyage! --(WT-en) Peter Talk 21:08, 19 April 2010 (EDT)

  • Support. Consistent, level-headed and fair, perfect bureaucrat material – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 21:38, 19 April 2010 (EDT)
  • Ironically a nomination based partly on the fact that I'm "around often and/or easy to contact" came up while I was at the bottom of the Grand Canyon for a weekend, but I'm happy to help out with extra button flipping as needed. Additionally, the kind words are very much appreciated. -- (WT-en) Ryan • (talk) • 00:01, 20 April 2010 (EDT)
Further justification, I say. You were easy to contact even when at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. --(WT-en) Peter Talk 00:04, 20 April 2010 (EDT)
Watch out for falling rocks. We don't want you bumped on the head and then claiming to forget you accepted the nomination. --(WT-en) Burmesedays 00:19, 20 April 2010 (EDT)

I've considered nominating Vidimian several times over the years, but wasn't sure if he was terribly interested in using the buttons! But in the past several months he's been hard at work on patrolling and cleaning up (in addition to all sorts of other very useful tasks), so I think he would now find them useful. His wiki-etiquette, understanding of policies, and track record overall are excellent, so I'm happy to follow through on Mr. Yurkin's suggestion and hope Vidimian is interested! --(WT-en) Peter Talk 19:37, 11 May 2010 (EDT)

  • Support (assuming he wants the buttons). Excellent communicator with a good grasp of the way things work around here.--(WT-en) Burmesedays 02:28, 12 May 2010 (EDT)
  • Support obviously :) --(WT-en) globe-trotter 19:03, 18 May 2010 (EDT)
  • Support, but can we get a yea or a nay from the man himself? (WT-en) Jpatokal 20:40, 18 May 2010 (EDT)
  • Thanks for the nomination, trust, and support. I prudently use the buttons I already have, but I guess having an extra few would not harm. So, accept, given there is no opposition. – (WT-en) Vidimian 15:59, 21 May 2010 (EDT)
  • Support Great work on Turkish articles and kind person in communication. (WT-en) jan 07:24, 22 May 2010 (EDT)

Nomination complete. -- (WT-en) Ryan • (talk) • 16:41, 25 May 2010 (EDT)

Since it would be good to have at least two active bureaucrats I'd like to nominate Mr. Fitzgerald to the post. For the twos of people unfamiliar with him, he has been instrumental in the very successful Project:Mapmaking Expedition, defined a good number of the regional hierarchies on the site, published a few books, and pushed numerous articles to star status. In addition, since (WT-en) Evan left Peter has been as close to a benevolent dictator as we've had, so giving him the red rubber stamp of bureaucrat-ism seems only fitting. I'd have nominated him sooner, but I wanted to get to be the one to update his account permissions so I selfishly waited until my own nomination finished :) -- (WT-en) Ryan • (talk) • 16:55, 19 May 2010 (EDT)

Thanks for the kind words. I'm willing to accept this, but only with the very explicit caveat that I think it comes with zero additional "authority" or "respect" or what have you. That being clear, I would be happy to add redundancy to switch flipping and name changing. --(WT-en) Peter Talk 17:05, 19 May 2010 (EDT)
With (WT-en) Jani moving on to other pursuits we really do need another bureaucrat, so redundancy is definitely a primary motivation here, although if it's any reassurance I'll do my utmost to respect you less if the nomination succeeds :) -- (WT-en) Ryan • (talk) • 17:44, 19 May 2010 (EDT)
  • Strong support, I could not think of a better candidate :) --(WT-en) globe-trotter 17:52, 19 May 2010 (EDT)
  • Strong support; although you already have more of my respect than any other person here, Peter. (WT-en) PerryPlanet Talk 18:02, 19 May 2010 (EDT)
  • Who? I've never heard of him, but if you guys trust him, then I guess he has my support too – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 18:12, 19 May 2010 (EDT)
  • Disrespectfully Support. --(WT-en) inas 20:40, 19 May 2010 (EDT)
  • Support The right person for the super powers ;-) (WT-en) jan 03:14, 20 May 2010 (EDT)

Nomination complete. -- (WT-en) Ryan • (talk) • 14:53, 2 June 2010 (EDT)

Excellent work in getting Kununurra to star status, and valuable contributions to many other articles. Patrols regularly, detouting etc, with a demonstrated good knowledge of our policies in this area. Could surely be trusted with the extra buttons, and I'm confident could be a great help with mop in hand. --(WT-en) inas 21:05, 5 December 2010 (EST)

  • Support • • • (WT-en) Peter (Southwood) Talk 13:37, 6 December 2010 (EST)
  • Support. Doing a great job as one of the most regular patrollers lately. – (WT-en) Vidimian 18:42, 7 December 2010 (EST)
  • Support. What Vidimian said - has been doing a lot of good work lately. (WT-en) PerryPlanet Talk 17:53, 8 December 2010 (EST)
  • Support! --(WT-en) Peter Talk 18:44, 10 December 2010 (EST)
  • Support. I recognized the user name but didn't know the contribution history. Browsing Special:Contributions/Cardboardbird shows a lot of good edits with solid reasoning provided, so definite support from me provided this user wants the extra shiny buttons. -- (WT-en) Ryan • (talk) • 18:49, 10 December 2010 (EST)
  • Support! - (WT-en) Texugo 00:21, 11 December 2010 (EST)
Thanks everyone for the nomination and your support. I enjoy contributing to WT and I think I would be able to make good use of some extra tools. - (WT-en) Cardboardbird 23:22, 12 December 2010 (EST)
