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.
 —Restricted access policy


admin since February 2017 (see previous discussions), currently active (contributions · logs · count · crosswiki · crossactivity). Mukkakukaku will be reconfirmed automatically unless at least three established users oppose, which will trigger a vote of confidence with decision by simple majority.

Nominations for adminship[edit]

Xover (talkcontribs) • enWS activityGlobal

Xover has been part of enWS since 2008, and has been very active and involved here in recent months. They have a strong understanding of how we operate here; their work edits are consistently high quality; their contributions to discussions are insightful and helpful. Our project would benefit greatly from having Xover among our admin team. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 15:11, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for the vote of confidence, and I accept the nomination. Happy to help where I can. --Xover (talk) 15:44, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
