Well. After all Matthew Edwards controversy, and that finally this has settled down, and we are going to get a bunch of nice oversighters, I'm nominating myself for adminship. I like to revert vandalism and with the admin mop it would be much easier (to delete them). I'm not really sure if the Wikinews community trusts me enough for this, after some failed attempts. I have done my best. I have +3000 edits, and I'm a sysop at MediaWiki.org. Also, I'm being mentored in Wikiversity on how to take appropiate decisions as admin. I did that voluntarily because I think I do rushed decisions and later I remorse. Anyway, vote! Thanks in advance for this (once again) opportunity :) --Diego Grezreturn fire 02:51, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
Neutral *sigh* You seem to be quite hot-headed sometimes; maybe the language barrier is preventing you from showing off your nicer side??? :-/ Perhaps it shall suffice to say that I doubt you have the ability right now to be diplomatic. However, I shall wait for other Wikinewsies to opine before I make my final vote. Benny the mascot (talk) 03:11, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
Yes. Maybe I can't find sometimes nicer words to tell things. After all, I want this to do vandalism cleanup, Y'know ;-) --Diego Grezreturn fire 03:14, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
But that's my main concern. Diplomacy is very important in vandalism cleanup, especially when we are dealing with potentially helpful contributors. Your wording here is quite discouraging. Benny the mascot (talk) 03:27, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Oppose. I appreciate your current work, Diego, and I know you mean well, but I'm not comfortable having you as an admin ATM. Specifically, I'm concerned you don't have the judgment necessary for a sysop. For instance, this wasn't exactly an insightful or helpful edit; additionally, your comments at AAA over the Matthew fiasco leave me somewhat disconcerted over your ability to act appropriately. It's not like we are in dire need of extra admins, and one can fight the little vandalism that we do have with other tools (like rollback, which you have). I'm also not comfortable with your comments to Mchris' talk page Benny linked to above; it's not against our policies to focus extensively on one specific topic, in fact that's usually a good thing. Sorry. No hard feelings Tempodivalse[talk] 03:30, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
