Ikan Kekek for Bureaucrat

As I'm the only active bureaucrat at the moment, I would like to nominate Ikan Kekek to assume the same responsibilities. Even though we can always fall back on stewards for bit-flipping tasks, I think it's nice to have local bureaucrats who understand the community and local consensus. Ikan is undoubtedly trustworthy and probably the most level-headed active editor here, myself included. His record as an administrator is sterling and I absolutely trust him with the power to add and remove admin status. What say you? -- Powers (talk) 17:10, 10 May 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Time to flip the bit @LtPowers:? --Saqib (talk) 13:56, 2 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]

User:Ground Zero quickly established himself as a valuable user and has continued to be very active and helpful ever since his first edit last January (user contributions here). He's shown a strong commitment to improving the site in the interest of travelers and has been involved in just about every aspect of the discussion and activity that take place here. He's had some disagreements with me and one or two other folks on just how much content to cut in streamlining articles; that's well within the normal range of differences among people of good faith (I consider the disagreements between the two of us not much more than marginal, myself). You can see at User talk:Ground Zero#Admin? that he has agreed to serve as an admin if the rest of us want him to. Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:31, 14 May 2017 (UTC)[reply]

In consideration of the fact that Ground Zero giving more time to Wikivoyage instead of his home wiki Wikipedia where he's admin, I am comfortable with giving him mop and bucket. He's an experienced Wikipedian and I am pretty sure he will make a great Wikivoyager as well. Until we see some sort of opposition in this nomination, we shouldn't be hesitant to switch the bits. --Saqib (talk) 16:30, 26 May 2017 (UTC)[reply]

As you can see from looking through User:DaGizza's output, he has been an extremely helpful and prolific editor. Most of his edits have been of the "wikignoming" type, though a more thorough search will show participation in policy and organizational discussions in the Pub and in vfd. I would think everyone would trust him to use admin tools wisely, and he has expressed enthusiasm about helping to combat vandalism and picking up the slack from the admins who have resigned.
