Geo Swan[edit]

2008-05 admin[edit]

Geo_Swan (talkcontribs)

Geo_Swan migrated to Wikisource as a place to host Department of Defense documents related to the extrajudicial detentions in the War on Terror over a year ago. With nearly a thousand edits to WS, I haven't seen a single questionable judgment call - he deals almost exclusively in Department of Defense documents and using them as sources in corresponding WP articles - and has single-handedly created Wikisource:Guantanamo as one of the greatest online repositories of this information. I have no qualms about his continued vigilance if given Admin tools, and think it could only help the project to have such a dedicated presence.

  • Support. Wikisource:Guantanamo is a fantastically impressive reference resource—comprehensive and well organized. Geo Swan’s attention to detail will serve the project well. Tarmstro99 13:29, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support - Wikisource:Guantanamo is incredible and really shows what Wikisource is capable of. I'm sure he will be a great admin. Suicidalhamster 10:15, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support—Active yes, but recent sysop activities apparently nil? AuFCL (talk) 01:01, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose current contributions have not generally been to our expected standard or style, and I believe their edits should be patrolled, as such removing admin rights so edits can be patrolled — billinghurst sDrewth 02:26, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - perhaps we should ask this editor about their intended level of activity in the future? BD2412 T 21:09, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose; pending reply to above question. due to foreseen low activity and low use of tools— Mpaa (talk) 23:25, 5 January 2016 (UTC)
    @Hesperian, Mpaa, Zhaladshar: I believe that we should be putting notice to the community about this confirmation, it has three negative votes, which changes its position and process. — billinghurst sDrewth 14:15, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
    Done. Hesperian 03:44, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
    I have added a note to the user's talk page. — billinghurst sDrewth 06:06, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
    Maybe they should be contacted over at en Wikipedia, where the user is regularly active? Hrishikes (talk) 06:43, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Geo Swan here. Thanks to User:Mpaa, whose note on my talk page triggered an automatic email heads-up.

    I am grateful for my wikisource access. Thanks!

    With regard to my future level of activity. In recent years most documents I would once have uploaded to wikisource, I have instead uploaded to commons, so I don't anticipate my participation rate rising to a high level again, in 2016. ¬¬¬¬

So will you be more or less active in 2016? (Just asking as I am not sure if this message and the one on your talk page are aligned).— Mpaa (talk) 18:37, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Honestly, I do not anticipate being very active in 2016. Thanks! Geo Swan (talk) 22:09, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
