  1. Symbol support vote.svg Support Conrad.Irwin 23:32, 30 December 2008 (UTC) Would use the tools correctly. I have slight reservations about attitude, but hey - we're here to build a dictionary.
  2. Symbol support vote.svg Support for the same reason as here. But if you are WF, and this vote passes, could you maybe try to be a better admin this time around? :-P   —RuakhTALK 22:08, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
    Seeing as I don't exactly know who "WF" is, that'll be hard, but I could try. Teh Rote 15:02, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
    According to Wiktionary:Votes/sy-2008-12/User:Equinox_for_admin#Discussion this is a user called Wonderfool and when I tipped User:Wonderfool I came across a page which was deleted twice by its own owner. Facetious, isn't it? Perchance it is interdicted to delete one's own page, so do not do it and I shall also cast my vote. Bogorm 16:19, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

    Can you clarify your comment? Are you opposing just because this is a self-nomination? If yes, I believe the policies page permits self-nomination.

    • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose pending vetting by a CheckUser. (I've got a feeling. My apologies if I'm wrong.) —RuakhTALK 15:54, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
  2. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. Teh Rote is a great contributor who has learned a lot about Wiktionary practice, written and unwritten. Can't comment on what constitutes a "solid" contributor, but he's certainly more active than myself. Neither do I doubt his intentions. Certainly any and all contributors who have a positive impact are welcomed as part of the community. However, that isn't sufficient justification for adminship, and I don't yet see any reason why he should be trusted to this role. I'm not saying that any qualities are lacking, just that the evidence is insufficient when it should be overwhelming. The nomination is premature. DAVilla 10:56, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
  3. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Premature, per DAVilla. --Neskaya kanetsv 22:13, 5 January 2009 (UTC)


  1. Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain \Mike 23:38, 1 January 2009 (UTC) Normally I would simply pass a vote like this without bothering to edit, but... even I have seen that things have happened around this user, but I have no idea about how it came to happen, so I cannot make any fair judgment in either direction. Hence the explicit "abstain".


  • Vote fails 3–3–1, meaning only that Teh Rote (talkcontribs) will not be made an administrator at this time. —RuakhTALK 00:25, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
