User:Koavf for admin

Nomination: I hereby nominate Koavf (talkcontribs) as a local English Wiktionary Administrator. Friendly, polite and experienced contributor; I believe he'll put the admin tools to good use.

See User_talk:Koavf#Adminship for previous discussion.


  • Vote starts: 10:59, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Vote ends: 23:59, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Vote created: Rerum scriptor (talk) 10:59, 20 January 2018 (UTC)


  • Languages: en-N, es-2, de-1, pt-1 (and 1 on other Romance languages)
  • Timezone: UTC+ 4
Thanks to Rerum for the nomination. @Equinox, PseudoSkull: who commented on my talk regarding this. Also @AryamanA, Daniel Carrero, Donnanz who may have opinions on this topic pro- or con- and @Metaknowledge, DTLHS, wikitiki89, xbony2, Andrew Sheedy, Victar, Robbie SWE, Mahagaja, Vahagn Petrosyan since they voted on me before for another issue. I would encourage everyone to take a look at this unsuccessful CheckUser vote and the recent discussion of de-sysopping 19 admins for context, and this cross-activity tool or Special:CentralAuth/Koavf to get an idea of what I do around the WMF projects and how I've used advanced user rights elsewhere; I've been on this project since 2005 and have become much more active since 2013 or so. If anyone has concerns, questions, etc. I'll be happy to address them. —Justin (koavf)TCM 14:49, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

  2. Symbol support vote.svg Support We did have a serious clash a while ago, but since then we have been able to co-operate. So I'm prepared to give Justin a chance, he would probably be a better admin than I ever would (I have no ambitions). DonnanZ (talk) 16:57, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
  3. Symbol support vote.svg Support, you had me at "ping" :-) --Robbie SWE (talk) 19:46, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
  4. Symbol support vote.svg Support I know this user to be extremely nice and happy and positive. Also, Koavf is a very trustworthy editor both here and on other projects, and has been here a long time. He really knows his way around and knows what he's doing, and clearly enjoys to do what he does. PseudoSkull (talk) 18:22, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
  5. Symbol support vote.svg Support I have encountered Koavf across several Wikimedia projects and though we have had disagreements, his manner is polite and respectful. Green Giant (talk) 23:54, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
