  • I hope we continue to 'not really need' ArbCom here on Wikinews; but, without our own "Supreme Court", someone may inflict theirs on us. --Brian McNeil / talk 07:33, 21 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Pi zero (talk · contribs)[edit]

Comments and questions[edit]

He is very active and very helpful and reliable. He does very good reviews, gives good explanations and doesn't seem to forget about any of the journalism pillars. Calusarul (talk) 00:36, 19 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks. (Since there are only six candidates, it doesn't make any material difference to the election that you don't meet the voter eligibility criteria. It does make a material difference to the project that my colleagues on the project think well of me.) --Pi zero (talk) 10:51, 19 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]
If only we had an editor-in-chief like you - at least for a month or two - at some Romanian newspapers or news websites, it would make a big difference in quality. We have some really talented analysts, but real reporters are hard to find. If we only had a guy like you to revise their articles and maintain quality standards moderately high! ;) Calusarul (talk) 14:09, 19 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]
  • I don't think there's any doubt, in my mind or anyone else's, that Pi zero is an invaluable asset to this project and a fantastic reviewer. Thank you for your past work and your continued work in the future. Tyrol5 (talk) 04:09, 23 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]

  4. Support. I think the above comments, wishing Romanian newspapers could 'borrow' Pi zero, say it all. --Brian McNeil / talk 07:30, 21 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Comments and questions[edit]

She is also very active and very helpful and reliable. She also writes good original reports. I'm sorry I can't vote for the others, it's because I'm pretty new here and I don't know them yet. Laura also created a very nice Wikinews guide Calusarul (talk) 00:36, 19 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]

RockerballAustralia (talk · contribs)[edit]

Comments and questions[edit]

  • Slightly surprised not to see more votes for Rockerball. Xe has upped contributory standards, and review standards, throughout their "Wikinews career". We all have room for improvement, Rockerball has taken some flak on that in the past; thus, I'm happy to support and have someone who knows how challenging Wikinews' standards can be to meet. --Brian McNeil / talk 07:40, 21 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]
