Confirmation discussions[edit]

Restricted access depends on the continued support of the community. This may be tested by a vote of confidence, in which a simple majority (50%+1) must support the user's continued access for it to be retained. (What access a discussion concerns should be explicitly noted in the discussion's introduction.) Any user may propose a vote of confidence, but at least three established users must support the need for one before it can be called. Such a proposal is made automatically one year after the last scheduled or called proposal (concerning all restricted access).

In the case of an unscheduled (called) proposal, the user may not use the restricted access for any non-trivial action at any time until the vote is closed. A bureaucrat will eventually archive the discussion and, if so decided, request removal of restricted access by a steward.

Resignations[edit]

Pathoschild[edit]

Hi! Since I'm no longer active on-wiki, I've requested the removal of my admin flags. I'll continue lurking and maybe take up editing again sometime. :) —Pathoschild 02:18, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Thanks for many years of great service to the project, Pathoschild. You'll always be a Wikisourcerer! Hesperian 05:34, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Yes, as Hesperian states, thank you Pathoschild for your many years of service to en.wikisource and other wiki areas you have worked on. The future will be a better future because of what you have done. From the realm of bookworms and silverfish, Kindest regards, —Maury (talk) 05:40, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks for all the contributions, and please come back soon. — Ineuw talk 07:45, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Thank you for everything you have done, and all the best in your future endeavours. Hope to see you around sometime. Best regards,—Clockery Fairfeld (ƒ=ma) 08:43, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks for all that you have done for Wikisource over the years and please come back whenever you get the urge.

    PLEASE take the time out to review and/or revise any of the tools and/or scripts you were once involved in developing here before you go - there is a good chance much of it is still in use by many but little has been done in the way of keeping them current/relevent. TIA. — George Orwell III (talk) 20:51, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Four-leaved clover Good luck in your IRL activities, Pathoschild; thank you for so solid building here during many years; you'll not be forgotten. --Zyephyrus (talk) 21:13, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Nominating User:Ineuw for adminship.[edit]

Ineuw (talkcontribs) • SULYAECenWS activityGlobal

I am nominating User:Ineuw (myself) for a variety of reasons which have become timely. The reasons are:

  1. Having more understanding, experience and confidence in carrying out the responsibilities of adminship.
  2. The number of active admins is diminishing due to demands of life.
  3. Myself being one of several "retired" Wikisourcians with more time "on hand" to help with essential maintenance tasks.
  4. As the number of older (but not necessarily more mature) "baby boomer" WS editors is slowly increasing, I would like to provide a more detailed "on hand" support to those who know less than I. — Ineuw talk 20:27, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support — as wanting to have nominated him once before. Fully support now that the "time" is right for him -- George Orwell III (talk) 21:22, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support--Mpaa (talk) 22:12, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support AuFCL (talk) 22:17, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - I personally think Ineuw should have had someone else nominate him because his own statements both about himself as well as others seem a tad bombastic. However he is exceedingly good at what he does, and even better than what he has stated. What he has not stated is that he helps people via private mails. I fully believe he can easily handle an administrator's position. He will get enough support and that I can promise. —Maury (talk) 01:20, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - I like Canadians. Moondyne (talk) 01:57, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Of course. There are some very active users on enWS who imho could do good work if they were given adminship (Ineuw being one of them). It's good to see at least one of them asking for it. ;-) Best wishes,—Clockery Fairfeld (ƒ=ma) 05:48, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - Ineuw contributed most of the Popular Science material, which, over time, has become one the greatest institootions of which this website can boste. ResScholar (talk) 10:51, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - Kathleen.wright5 (talk) 13:22, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Support, seems like I tried to nominate Ineuw back in July of 2012. JeepdaySock (AKA, Jeepday) 14:45, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support — Very happy that you join us. --Zyephyrus (talk) 15:47, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support—Having done my usual due diligence on contributions and logs, I'm more than happy to support this nomination. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 09:36, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
