  1. Symbol support vote.svg Support Equinox 15:44, 5 July 2012 (UTC) I know the vote hasn't started but I'll probably be away on holiday before it does. Regardless of the final vote wording, I support the longest possible block. Equinox 15:44, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
  2. Symbol support vote.svg Support SemperBlotto (talk) 15:48, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
  3. Symbol support vote.svg Support with our limited resources, we don't need a misbehaving user who needs to be babysit for every single one of his fucking edits. He's really no different from the likes of Wonderfool. -- Liliana 21:45, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
    Actually I'd say he's a lot like Wonderfool, but slightly worse, as Wonderfool is simply better at editing. Mglovesfun (talk) 09:30, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
  4. Symbol support vote.svg Support, but not a block for infinity. — Ungoliant (Falai) 02:07, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

  7. Symbol support vote.svg Support --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 14:42, 10 July 2012 (UTC) although I'd like him to get unblocked sometime not too long from now. Ditto Ungoliant. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 14:42, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
  8. Symbol support vote.svg Support JamesjiaoTC 01:54, 11 July 2012 (UTC) Too arrogant and defensive to work in a group. JamesjiaoTC 01:54, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
    Symbol support vote.svg Support Too many unverifiable "words" and spellings over too long a period. Collect (talk) 21:01, 12 August 2012 (UTC)
    This is after the vote has closed, so I'm indenting it. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:02, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

    • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose TheghostofWF (talk) 22:25, 17 July 2012 (UTC) and yes, my vote is valid
      • I've indented that vote to strike in accordance with (quoting WT:V) "For a Wiktionary user to be eligible for voting, the following requirements must be satisfied: Their account's first edit to English Wiktionary (made locally rather than transwikied from another project) must predate the start time of the vote by at least 1 week. Their account must have at least 50 edits in total to the main, Citations, Appendix, Rhymes, Wikisaurus, or Concordance namespaces on English Wiktionary by the start time of the vote".​—msh210 (talk) 22:29, 17 July 2012 (UTC)


  1. Symbol abstain vote.svg AbstainRuakhTALK 16:41, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
  2. Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain. The question for me is whether he will contribute more positively to this wiki than he will negatively, regardless of his motives. I think it's pretty marginal. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:34, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
    True, some good editors may be forgiven for their occasional misbehaviour, this may not be the case as far as I can tell. --Anatoli (обсудить) 04:02, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
  3. Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain --Vahag (talk) 16:42, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  4. Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain Was between support and abstain. I'm annoyed with difficult editors as well, value my time but appreciate if they are seriously trying to get better (more cooperative, respectful of other people's efforts and learn to seek agreement) and I also see that we are sometimes too harsh but I'm not too familiar with his edits and the whole story, so decided on abstaining this time. --Anatoli (обсудить) 03:51, 11 July 2012 (UTC)


  • I've changed the block to last for six more days — approximately a one-month block — since the vote clearly shows a lack of consensus for a long-term block, and I think the discussions surrounding the vote suggest agreement that consensus should be required for one. —RuakhTALK 17:26, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
