2008-01 admin[edit]

Hesperian (talkcontribs)

Since registering in early July, 2005 Hesperian has been diligently contributing texts about Australia and botany. In addition to that, he is an admin on Wikipedia, with 30,000 edits on similar topics.

The only "problem" here was the first work, My Life's Adventure by Author:John Kirwan, contributed June 5, 2005; it was raised at WS:COPY on November 19, 2006, Hesperian chimed in within 24hrs, explained why he had presumed it to be PD, and acknowledged that it should be deleted.

In addition to 1300 contributions here and ~100 to the Latin Wikisource, he has also taken up the task of patrolling the RC feed since it was recently available to non-admins. John Vandenberg 20:44, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

2011-09 bureaucrat[edit]

Hesperian (talkcontribs) • SULYAECenWS activityGlobal

Wikisource currently has two bureaucrats [1] and my reflecting on existing needs indicates to me that we could do with a third, and to that point I would like to nominate Hesperian for that role (role explanation at m:bureaucrat). To my view, our bureaucrats are in space where they are judging and acting on the will of the community, so generally they are among our more senior editors and administrators, though probably moved out of the more activist mode and into the contemplative mode. I believe that Hesperian fulfils both of those criteria, and has exhibited required abilities to undertake this role on behalf of the community. He first edited both Wikipedia and Wikisource back in the mediæval period, has achieved sysop mop level at a few sites and has approximately 200k edits across the Wikimedia properties. — billinghurst sDrewth 11:20, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, billinghurst; I accept.

I share billinghurst's view that the role is to humbly enact the community's will, and is therefore best suited to someone who has stepped back from actively driving agendas and moulding opinion. I seem to have drifted that way over the last year or so, so I am happy to serve as bureaucrat if you guy's'll have me. Hesperian 12:05, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

  • Seems like a great suggestion, lots of things to consider here, first impression is support. Wanted to post something positive while I think about it and before I make my formal recommendation. JeepdaySock (talk) 16:51, 8 September 2011 (UTC) Support, as I look back through old discussions, I am reminded of all the level headed comments and actions Hesperian has made. JeepdaySock (talk) 10:49, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Support entirely.--Zyephyrus (talk) 21:15, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Support I was going to nom Hesperian myself. I think we need several more crats and could stand to have many more. Of all the experienced participants, Hesperian goes to the top of the list for experience, trustworthiness, and judgment.--Doug.(talk contribs) 05:13, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Support - AdamBMorgan (talk) 14:46, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Support - Holy crap 200k edits! I also support the idea we get him another keyboard. I am guessing he wore out his original one he used for editing the Wikimedia projects! :) With the number edits and years of experience, I give him my full backing. --Mattwj2002 (talk) 21:57, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

  • Support. As we have so many administrators, having the third bureaucrat will much better justify why we always need our own bureaucrats. Some wikis with just two bureaucrats have both of them inactive. [2]--Jusjih (talk) 10:33, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Support. Concur with billinghurst on the nature of this role, and Hesperian's suitability for this role. John Vandenberg (chat) 21:07, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Only 2 bureaucrats?!?! C'mon, wikisource has 41 admins! Surely more than just 3 bureaucrats would be better so there won't be any backlogs to crat-related matters (i.e. renames, promotions, bots, etc). —stay (sic)! 12:08, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
    • I agree, stay, I was originally intending to nominate at least two people but got preempted by Billinghurst on this one.--Doug.(talk contribs) 04:08, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Hesperian has been promoted to bureaucrat.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 15:47, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
