Wikinews:Arbitration Committee/Elections July 2008/TUFKAAP Questions
From Wikinews, the free news source you can write!
- Question from Anonymous101: You are not currently editing that reguarly. Will you have time to deal with the long, complex arbitration cases that could (but will hopefully not) occur --Anonymous101 (talk) 11:10, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
- Right now, there really isn't anything interesting in the news for me to write about, I've been thinking of hopefully getting more Presidental canadiate interviews, but I have a job currently with the TSA, however, it is part-time. Anyways, that's not what this is about. I believe I can handle the ArbCom caseload, although I will be absent on afternoons from 1 to 6pm EST/EDT but for the most part I sit in front of this computer constantly so I can check up on ArbCom constantly, heck, I check Wikinews every day more then once. So yes, I do believe I am more then active enough to handle cases. --TUFKAAP (talk) 02:06, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
- Question from GW_Simulations: There has recently been some controversy on the English Wikipedia about the extent of ArbCom's power and influence. Do you feel that it is ever ArbCom's place to dictate policies, even against community consensus, or just to make rulings on individual cases, on a case-by-case basis? I am asking this question to all candidates --GW_SimulationsUser Page | Talk 11:23, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
- IANAL and I don't get invovled in EN WP wikipolitics, but for the most part, I perfer to rule on case-by-case basis, on top of that, Wikinews is small enough that policy doesn't need to be dictated by a cabal, and if there is a cabal, WHICH THERE ISN'T, it is primarily made of up active contributors. --TUFKAAP (talk) 02:06, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
