Slipknot1[change source]

Slipknot1 (talk · contribs)

End date: 18:54, 4 March 2010

I would like to be granted the import tool so that I can import necessary pages from the English Wikipedia for article work. I have been editing here for a long time and have considerable knowledge of the tool. Regards, —§ stay (sic)! 18:54, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

Candidate's acceptance: self-nom —§ stay (sic)! 18:54, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

Optional Questions[change source]

Q: What are your current plans for the use of this tool? NonvocalScream (talk) 17:56, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

A: I have worked in creating and expanding weather-related articles in addition to briefly working on this article. With the tool, I might continue working on weather-related articles and anything else that may come up on my todo. —§ stay (sic)! 18:39, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Support[change source]

  1. fr33kman 19:01, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
  2. At the rate we are going, a lot of people are going to have this tool. The more articles the better I guess.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 19:02, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
    My thoughts exactly. fr33kman 19:11, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
  3. Per Gordon; the more the merrier. :) Lauryn (utc) 19:14, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
  4. The tool is a very good help to those who work in translations. The more willing to use it and expand simple the better. Ottava Rima (talk) 20:35, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
  5. I don't see why not :-) Classical Esther 02:22, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
  6. No probs. Maybe it would be nice if we could let 'crats handle flagging users as transwiki? Pmlineditor  10:04, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
    Not a bad idea! fr33kman 14:52, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
  7. Article work justifies this tool.–Juliancolton | Talk 16:37, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
  8. I support anything that can help improving simple wikipedia.--Sinbad (talk) 13:58, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
    I am very pro-importer. What's the risk? If he does something wrong, it can be reverted. Kansan (talk) 20:57, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
    Have you tried it? It took scream hours to fix one bad import he made. Imagine several. Griffinofwales (talk) 20:59, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
    Oh dear God yes, it was hell. I even had to get outside help. NonvocalScream (talk) 21:08, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
    I never made an import action during my entire time here at simplewp. Are you refering to me or someone else? —§ stay (sic)! 21:52, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
    I was referring to NonvocalScream. Griffinofwales (talk) 21:53, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
  9. Support: no concerns here. Airplaneman talk 01:31, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

Oppose[change source]

  1. Where is the article work? IMO you haven't yet shown a need for the tool. Griffinofwales (talk) 14:34, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
    There is major history here that is long before your time, but suffice to say that Snake more than qualifies for importer! fr33kman 15:58, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
    Right. There's something wrong if it happened before my time. Does he need it any more? He's not very active in article space (I count 2 articles this month). Griffinofwales (talk) 17:33, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
  2. Can't help but agree with Griffen. We wouldn't give rollback to someone not currently fighting vandalism. Why would we give importer to someone not currently working on articles? -DJSasso (talk) 17:53, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
  3. Great contributer! However, there is no firm commitment or task in mind that I can tell with the proposed use of this tool. In the future, develop a task. Best! NonvocalScream (talk) 18:59, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
    Right now I'm thinking on continuing to work on articles related to 2009 AHS. Simplewp could use more articles related to weather. However it takes time to form a task, especially on a busy schedule. —§ stay (sic)! 19:08, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
    Well, form one... than come back. No issues here. You won't be using the tool without a plan, so it makes no difference if you don't get it not, versus getting it after you have a plan. I'm not too keen on just giving the flag to have it sit. Best! NonvocalScream (talk) 19:09, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
  4. Agree with Nonvocal Scream and Griffinofwales... Slipknot1 is not being very active these days. I rarely see his name in the New Changes list. :( Sorry, Slipknot1, but not yet.... Try to be more active and we'll think about it. Belinda 08:49, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
  5. μ 18:53, Sunday February 28 2010 (UTC)
    Any reason for opposing? —§ stay (sic)! 20:48, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
  6. Oppose No clear task set out here. Either way (talk) 02:13, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
