    BTW, are we in specific need of a new bureaucrat, or is this is a might-as-well thing? (Not that that affects my vote either way.) —RuakhTALK 15:22, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
    Most of our crats are currently sporadic or practically inactive. My informal understanding has been that we should have at least two regularly available crats, and we currently have only Semper and Hippietrail. I accepted on those grounds, although I couldn't find any specific statement about how many are supposed to be around. The crat is needed to grant admin rights, handle bot flags, and deal with user renaming requests, but neither Meta nor Wikipedia seem to have any additional guidelines or recommendations beyond the process for approval of a new crat. --EncycloPetey 15:38, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

    Tho, just out of curiosity, won't it be kind of strange having a Wiktionary 'crat with a username homophonous with the word encyclopedia?!? Sort of traitorous, wouldn't one think - no offense, though, all in good fun, and it shouldn't affect anyone's votes . . . . . . . Logomaniac 19:38, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

    • Two votes were made after the 07/10/09, and one vote from a permanently banned user. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:00, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

OpposeEdit

  1.   Oppose Knepflerle 02:40, 5 July 2009 (UTC) - had an unpleasant interaction with this user as a new editor, and I gather this was not an isolated incident. Unsuited to dealing with requests from inexperienced users.

AbstainEdit

DecisionEdit

  • Motion passes 24-1 (excluding one permanently banned user, and two votes after the official close (me and User:Rising Sun)). Mglovesfun (talk) 11:58, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
    • This has been effected.​—msh210 22:44, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
