ThomasV[edit]

2005-11 admin[edit]

Initially I did not plan to be strongly involved in the English wikisource. However, I do check its Recentchanges page almost everyday, and it looks like I could revert some vandalism that goes unnoticed. ThomasV 11:30, 26 November 2005 (UTC)

2009-01 confirmation[edit]

  • Support A very useful admin; responsible for ProofreadPage, so how can we say no! Suicidalhamster (talk) 16:35, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Neutral While ThomasV' contributions as developer are very useful to Wikisource, his behaviour as admin on French Wikisource has been rather controversial. He has repetedly been aggressive with old and new contributors, and as a result, two very valuable new contributors left the project shortly after they joined. He is not an active contributor of English Wikisource, and as activity is not a formal requirement for adminiship here, so I can't judge if his behaviour would be different here than it is on the French Wikisource. Yann (talk) 17:09, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Support ThomasV has given lots of his time and of his energy to making wikisource. He is very busy out of ws but he finds time to visit his discussion pages and ws chan every day. I don't agree with all of his opinions and choices but I agree with a rather important part of them. - --Zyephyrus (talk) 19:45, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

2012-04 confirmation[edit]

The following discussion is closed: Not confirmed
Administrator since November 2005 (see previous discussions), currently inactive (contributions · logs · count · crosswiki). ThomasV will be removed automatically unless a simple majority of established users support continued access.
Note: No edits here or on any other Wikimedia Foundation project since 15 April 2011. Hesperian 11:44, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
This is not technically correct, ThomasV edited on mul.ws on 27 June 2011, though granted it was merely a vote and confirmation that he had asked Phe to take over.—Doug.(talk contribs) 09:10, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
Right you are. I missed this because mul.wikisource does not appear on global contribs. Hesperian 11:34, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Remove — for inactivity. How do you go from developer to zero just like that? Wonder if a new account was easier than dealing with the coding. -- George Orwell III (talk) 15:19, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Although removal is automatic a simple majority can overcome it, so I am commenting just in case. Concur with GO3, per inactivity policy.--Doug.(talk contribs) 15:34, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Support (in blithe hope) — billinghurst sDrewth 17:18, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

  • Support hoping ThomasV comes back. ----Zyephyrus (talk) 23:05, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Remove Consistency with recent removal of tools for others means that we need to do the same. However, he would only have to tap lightly on the door to be welcomed back with wide-open arms. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 09:05, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
  • 'Remove for inactivity, no objections to re-granting with a return to active status. Jeepday (talk) 13:25, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Comment—I don't have enough experience 'working' with ThomasV to cast a vote one way or the other. AKA Londonjackbooks 16:09, 9 April 2012 (UTC)


Not confirmed. Removal of access requested[1] and fulfilled.[2]. Hesperian 00:20, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
