User:ObsequiousNewt for admin

  • Nomination: I hereby nominate ObsequiousNewt (talkcontribs) as a local English Wiktionary Administrator. He does a lot of work on Ancient Greek, and would be facilitated in that by being able to edit certain protected pages (e.g. Module:languages/data3/g) and being able to delete others (see, for example, WT:RFDO#More superfluous grc templates). In my experience, he is reasonable in discussions and produces high-quality, reliable contributions. He has edited here since October 2012, and has been very active since the beginning of this year; accordingly, I think he has the sufficient experience and has displayed the appropriate competence and dedication that warrant this nomination for administratorship. — I.S.M.E.T.A. 22:19, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Vote starts: as soon as the nomination is accepted
  • Vote ends: 24:00, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Acceptance: Accepted in general per nom. I haven't been (and would prefer not to start) patrolling RC or making vandalism efforts—my work is solely in content editing, and I have not yet had a reason to get involved with other users except for policy questions—but when it comes to that, I am willing to carry out what is agreed upon, and I hope I can serve Wiktionary well. I'd also like to ping @JohnC5 and @Atelaes as they are essentially the only other editors I have spoken with. ObsequiousNewt (ἔβαζα|ἐτλέλεσα)
    • Languages: en, grc-3, la-2, de-2, es-1, ine-pro-1
    • Timezone: UTC-6 with DST

    @Fsojic: Technically speaking, your vote is invalid because you cast it before the nomination was accepted. I hope that no one will object on such pedantic grounds, but it may be best for you to recast your vote, just to make sure. — I.S.M.E.T.A. 00:29, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

@Stephen: As the only bureaucrat who cast a vote here, would you care to do the honours of conferring this administratorship? Thanks in advance. — I.S.M.E.T.A. 10:57, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Done. —Stephen (Talk) 00:02, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
