Support I would be hard pressed to think of anyone else more deserving of such a pain in the ass (except SB, of course, who has already been burdened with it). :-) -Atelaesλάλει ἐμοί 01:40, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
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)
Support Definitely, a great contributor with plenty of history. A lot more than me anyway, that's for sure ;) 50 Xylophone Playerstalk 20:13, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
SupportLogomaniac 22:01, 30 June 2009 (UTC) I echo Neskaya's comment above - definitely yes!! :) Logomaniac 22:01, 30 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)
SupportRobert Ullmann 15:43, 4 July 2009 (UTC) sure we could use another 'crat.

OpposeKnepflerle 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.
