User:Surjection for admin[edit]

Nomination: I hereby nominate Surjection (talkcontribs) as a local English Wiktionary Administrator.

Surjection has been around since February this year and is very active, mostly working on Finnish, but also reverting serious amounts of vandalism. Since s/he is not an admin, this tends to lead to tiresome vandal revert wars until an actual admin turns up. Please see a little prior discussion at User_talk:Surjection#Admin?.

    • I think it's customary for admin votes to run for two weeks. Per utramque cavernam 05:58, 4 August 2018 (UTC)
      OK, changed. I used the default; maybe that must also be changed? Equinox 21:04, 4 August 2018 (UTC)
      I've done so at {{vote-sysop}}. Per utramque cavernam 09:55, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
      I should have kept my mouth shut. Can't we give him the admin tools already? Per utramque cavernam 19:27, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
      No admin is on, so probably no bureaucrat either. SURJECTION ·talk·contr·log· 19:28, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

  6. Symbol support vote.svg Support. For anyone who noticed and is curious, I see that Surjection was suspected of being a sock of long-term problematic editor Diabedia over at en.wiki, but they don't seem to have been very careful — every indication to me is that Surjection was reverting various Diabedia socks. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 06:53, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

  1. Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain One particular admin I supported this year couldn't be trusted, and caused me a lot of trouble. Once bitten, twice shy. DonnanZ (talk) 16:07, 4 August 2018 (UTC)
    @Donnanz I advise not to base all admin votes on the perceived problems with one particular admin. Each person is individually different, so they should be evaluated on an individual basis. PseudoSkull (talk) 01:22, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
    I haven't voted against, this is just a shot across the bows. DonnanZ (talk) 07:09, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
  2. Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain for a few missing edit summaries. Otherwise, I would support. Jusjih (talk) 01:31, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
    I think that I actually make fewer edit summaries as a result of your bizarre criterion. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 03:27, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
