Candidate Statement: I have a long track record of using tools in an appropriate manner here and on en. I believe I can help support the wiki in this manner as I am used to dealing with sensitive information on a daily basis through my occupation which deals with highly confidential product information at times. I am well over 18, and will identify myself to the WMF should this succeed. I am available a large chunk of the day so am able to respond quickly to requests. -Djsasso (talk) 14:04, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Q:Okay, I'll ask the first question then will I? What makes you think you are a good candidate for this position? What is your experience on-wiki and why should we vote support for you? Kennedy (talk • changes). 20:45, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
A: It's hard to have on-wiki experience for this specific position as there isn't really much equivalent to it. The closest would be vandal reverting of which I obviously do when I see it. I have been known to do a "poor mans oversight" from time to time where I hide the offending edit using the delete and restore method. I have been an admin here for a number of months and a little over a year and a half on en. So it I think that shows I don't abuse tools because I have a wide open track record that anyone can see. I have never been in any drama concerning my use or non-use of tools. As for why you can support me? Because I have common sense. I know what is oversightable and I know how to not disclose confidential information. And that is really the most important part of this particular flag. -Djsasso (talk) 22:14, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
A. Without getting too specific with examples its boils down to the following times basically. Any non-public personal information such as home addresses or anything that "outs" a user. Any potential libelous information when there is no clear reason to keep the edit. And copy vios on the advice of the WMF legal eagles. As for inappropriate really anything that doesn't fall into those categories such as minor vandalism. Those are the only 3 things that should ever be oversighted. -Djsasso (talk) 21:45, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm not going to support or oppose, not that it will make any difference, due to my views that these elections are being improperly conducted. We should not be extending any time periods to get a required amount of votes - that's why we weren't going to start until September. I think we have some power hungry people wanting to get these started early...Goblin 13:05, 10 August 2009 (UTC) I ♥ Fr33kman!
I will not !vote either. I don't want to support, but I don't think it would be right for me to oppose either. Cheers.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 18:43, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
