Doug[edit]

2011-03 admin[edit]

Doug (talkcontribs) • enWS activityGlobal

Doug has been extremely active since the beginning of December 2010. In a few short months he has learnt a lot, and is busy doing whatever obviously needs to be done. He has started operating bots DougBot (talkcontribs) and Interwiki-Bot (talkcontribs), and has a few edits on a number of the other language subdomains. He is active in community discussions on the project and is also frequently participating in IRC discussions.

In addition to demonstrating suitability for sysop here for English Wikisource, Doug is also getting involved in Latin Wikisource, and I see sysop in his future there. It will be helpful for him to work among our sysop ranks here to gain a bit of experience before being left to his own devices on Latin Wikisource, where the infrastructure is less developed and there are fewer peers to call on.

p.s. he is also an admin on English Wikipedia, but I am sure he will be happy to resign from there if anyone holds that against him. John Vandenberg (chat) 12:35, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Support, a very enthusiastic contributor, quickly adjusted to and became part of our community, and has a lot of good ideas for the future. Often present in IRC and happily helps others there. Always after my lucky charms scripts. Inductiveloadtalk/contribs 14:16, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Support, per John; --Zyephyrus (talk) 18:21, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
  • support/promoveatur He won't speak twenty languages, but I like his approach. He's willing to work on la.source and I'm very glad to collaborate with him. - εΔω 18:30, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose (at this juncture) - While Doug has been a good contributor and has gone out of his way to be helpful and provide his input, I don't feel comfortable with way DougBot was lobbied for, actively persued secondary support for when the approval was in question and then after securing approval, the urgency for its use has gone silent and lays dormant for about a month now. I'm only speaking up here because I'd like to see Doug continue to provide en.WS specific support - not just, in my view, collect pins and badges acrosss the Wiki foundation. — George Orwell III (talk) 22:13, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Support participates across the space and would do no damage with tools, which is my criteria. Doug can have a level of (WP over-) urgency at times, and could well to equate WS with OktoberFest rather than Daytona, and that we truly want to give people time to participate. His beatings will continue as we redesign that WPishness though that can be with tools. — billinghurst sDrewth 23:17, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Support, per John. His interwiki bot did good work on de.ws. with iw-Links. Alkab (talk) 18:43, 27 February 2011 (UTC) (de.ws)

2012-04 confirmation[edit]

Administrator since March 2011 (see previous discussions), currently active (contributions · logs · count · crosswiki). Doug will be reconfirmed automatically unless at least three established users oppose, which will trigger an election with decision by simple majority.
Note, I have been somewhat light on my activity the past few months due to a need to focus on getting a new job and going away to training and probably will remain so due to a job change and international move; however, I intend to continue to lurk and check e-mail notices and will take admin actions when I see a need but my log actions will likely be low for a while. Hopefully, I'll be back to some editing and more active admin work by mid-summer.--Doug.(talk contribs) 18:13, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
