Yes, I suppose it doesn't matter who made the nomination or why, and the nominee being slightly uncertain is not necessarily a bad thing because it suggests a good sense of caution.

  7. Symbol support vote.svg Support if my count is correct, this will be the second female admin. That is always worth supporting! -- Liliana 00:27, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
    I don't think it is.​—msh210 (talk) 01:07, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

    Among current admins, we have CodeCat, yourself, and Pharamp‏‎ who list themselves in their preferences as female; among former admins, Logomaniac does. There are two other current admins who I suspect may be female (but whom I don't wish to mention, since obviously they don't want to list themselves as such).​—msh210 (talk) 19:47, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
    You forgot to mention User:Hekaheka. --Anatoli 22:11, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
    Actually I don't know if she is an admin, I don't see her on the list. --Anatoli 22:24, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
    She's not, but I think she should be. — [Ric Laurent] — 00:21, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
    CodeCat and female? Haha. I've seen him in person, so I know better ;) -- Liliana 00:10, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
    User:Dvortygirl is not very active, but is a female bureaucrat (I've seen her picture) and more importantly in my view, she's an engineer...not that either fact has anything to do with being a good admin or bureaucrat. --Enginear 02:02, 22 November 2011 (UTC)
    Incidentally, how did you determine which of your sentences I was responding to?​—msh210 (talk) 21:06, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
    My guess: Benefit of the doubt. Had you said what you did to one of those sentences, it would've made you appear to be sexist. lol — [Ric Laurent] — 21:36, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
    Should this pass, I might as well be the first autistic admin (or is it?). --Lo Ximiendo 01:07, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
    Or at least the first admin formally diagnosed as autistic -- for those of us who left school many years ago, it was never considered as a possibility except for very low achievers. I suspect there are others of us here who are at least borderline autistic, but have never been diagnosed. Compared with 'pedia, we have here a much stricter format for entries, and visiting 'pedia editors are forever criticising our "poor social interaction". But most of us are happier here than there. I think that's a clue that we're not quite normal, but all that matters here is that we are good at editing a wiktionary! --Enginear 02:02, 22 November 2011 (UTC)
    I've been (formallly?) diagnosed as autistic in at least 1995 and visiting doctors (or workers, I don't remember) monitored me in at least the early years of my life. --Lo Ximiendo 10:38, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

  1. Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain Equinox 18:32, 13 November 2011 (UTC) Nothing wrong with Lo Ximiendo, but she seems very uncertain [1]. Nominator Rockpilot, who has admitted to being Wonderfool, has a habit of starting large numbers of arbitrary bad-faith nominations. I suspect he picked her as an easy target for persuasion [2] because of her autism. Equinox 18:32, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
    Ouch — [Ric Laurent] — 18:37, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
    I don't know if I see anything wrong. --Lo Ximiendo 18:39, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
    I think it's a bit rude to say she can't think for herself. :/ —CodeCat 18:42, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
    Don't say it then! I didn't either. Equinox 18:45, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
    You're saying that she might be more easily persuaded because she has an autism spectrum disorder. I read that as meaning that because you consider her to have some kind of weakness she should be protected against Wonderfool. —CodeCat 18:49, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
    I didn't know she was autistic before starting the vote, and even if I had, I still would've nominated her. As for these "arbitrary bad-faith nominations", I don't consider myself to have started any so please inform me of an example (except for perhaps Razorflame, I concede that one). And I picked her because she is a long-standing reliable contributor, above all else. --Rockpilot 19:05, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
    I agree that the nominations Rockpilot has made don't seem to be "bad faith". --Mglovesfun (talk) 19:13, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
    So... what are you arguing about, again? Surely she'll still make a good admin. -- Liliana 19:19, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
    Ehh, okay then :) Equinox 00:08, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
