GorillaWarfare[edit]

2013-05 admin[edit]

GorillaWarfare (talkcontribs) • enWS activityGlobal

GW has been editing with us for a couple of years, amassed 4½k edits locally. GorillaWarfare has recently submitted a project to the Google Summer of Coding with a direct relationship to the work of Wikisource. Having more people who are coding capable is a benefit for the wiki, and I see benefits will flow from the admin access and the project. GorillaWarfare is already an admin at the big house, with 21k edits there, so comes trained in use of the tools and the system, and has demonstrated the trust and the right capabilities of when to, and not to, use the tools. — billinghurst sDrewth 07:36, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for your kind words and consideration. I accept this nomination. GorillaWarfare (talk) 12:50, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

2014-06 confirmation[edit]

Administrator since May 2013 (see previous discussions), currently active (contributions · logs · count · crossactivity). GorillaWarfare will be reconfirmed automatically unless at least three established users oppose, which will trigger a vote of confidence with decision by simple majority.
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Calling him "active" is a bit of a stretch, as he's only edited on three days since last August, and all of those were for the Introduction to a new work. --EncycloPetey (talk) 02:51, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
    Just FYI, GorillaWarfare is "active" per the definition at Wikisource:Restricted access policy#Inactivity: "An 'inactive administrator' is one who has not edited during the past six months and has not made more than 50 edits during the last year." Hesperian 08:09, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
    Calling her a him is inaccurate. Molly looks nothing like a him.
    I'm not going to judge people by looks.
    Looks like at least one person doesn't...

2015-07 confirmation[edit]

Administrator since May 2013 (see previous discussions), currently inactive (contributions · logs · count · crossactivity). GorillaWarfare will be removed automatically unless a simple majority of established users support continued access.
Note: 1 edit in the last year, on 25 July 2014. Very active at the English Wikipedia, where she currently sits on the Arbitration Committee.

    I would agree except that the Wikipedia Arbitration Committee is a misnomer—its members do not arbitrate. --EncycloPetey (talk) 19:23, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Hi all! I am unfortunately extremely inactive here, largely due to the workload over at enwiki. Although I am an administrator here, I'm not sure I've ever used the tools. Though I do hope to come back when I get more time, it will be to work on transcriptions, and I don't foresee needing the admin tools. I certainly feel I'm trustworthy enough to use them (or not use them, as it were), but I don't personally think I'm liable to use them much or at all. GorillaWarfare (talk) 00:57, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - although GorillaWarfare may not intend to use the tools, there is no reason to distrust their having them, and I respect their forthrightness in saying so, and their attention to the discussion. BD2412 T 17:18, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Not confirmed. Hesperian 04:03, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

admin since May 2013 (see previous discussions), currently active (contributions · logs · count · crossactivity). GorillaWarfare will be reconfirmed automatically unless at least three established users oppose, which will trigger a vote of confidence with decision by simple majority.
Provisionally listing as active, but see discussion here. Hesperian 00:35, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
  • I'm really not active enough on this project these days to be an administrator, so I'm going to request my rights be removed. I will hopefully become active here again one day, but unfortunately it probably won't be soon. GorillaWarfare (talk) 15:39, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Absent the above statement, I would support retention due to this admin's excellent record of service and the utter lack of any concerns about misuse of the tools; however, I respect their request for removal of rights. BD2412 T 21:01, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
