  3. Symbol support vote.svg Support Atelaes 00:01, 22 January 2008 (UTC) While DAVilla makes a good point, the fact that the user has made so many edits without receiving a lot of hate mail seems to indicate an ability to follow the rules and such. Not every good admin is overly chatty.
  4. Symbol support vote.svg Support per Atelaes. I haven't encountered this editor very much, but given how much he's contributed (see http://tools.wikimedia.de/~river/cgi-bin/count_edits?user=rsvk&dbname=enwiktionary_p), that's probably a good sign. —RuakhTALK 01:13, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

  • Clearly this is a knowledgeable editor, but I do not see much in the way of discussion, nor particularly any instances where the editor gave in to an argument. With such a long history, would it be possible that RSvK is active on another wiki where such interaction could be judged? Otherwise I would have to oppose abstain.

    Thanks for the kudo. Sorry if I haven't been in many discussions. Holding a full-time job can do that. If you want an argument, I would argue for dropping the "to" before verbs--I don't know of any other dictionary that puts them in, and "to" doesn't even work for all verbs, e.g., can. I've enjoyed making contributions and will continue to do so. Cheers, guys. RSvK 03:44, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
    Frankly I agree with you. Why give the infinitive form of the verb, but not the base form? Having the infinitive form using "to", shouldn't we also give the future form using "will", and a slew of others? However, it's not the arguments themselves that I was looking for, but conciliation. I've given your talk page another skim, and have less objection now. DAVilla 15:54, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Thanks, DAVilla. Not that it matters much, but per a (s)he elsewhere above, I'm a he. --Robert Steven van Keuren, a.k.a. RSvK 05:20, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
