We may as well have two oversighters. I had it before as a steward and I know how to use it. I am already identified to the foundation from then as well. We have used oversight a handful of times in the past. I believe we can respond faster when its needed with local OS--Cspurrier (talk) 21:50, 6 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Question I see from your contributions that you haven't been consistently active. Is this going to continue over the next year or so? Do you intend to be available to perform your oversight duties? Benny the mascot (talk) 14:39, 7 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]
The big reason for my inactivity (working on my MA) is gone (I graduated), I expect to be able to maintain a reasonable activity level for the foreseeable future. --Cspurrier (talk) 15:36, 7 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]
I have experience using the tools, having used them both here and on other Wiki's as a steward. I believe (like all of the other candidates) that I have a good grasp of what would be an appropriate use of the tools.--Cspurrier (talk) 00:34, 12 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]
weak oppose Craig vanishes for prolonged stints, and has given no indication this will not happen again. I do trust Craig to do the job, I just don't trust him to be there when needed, nor to have been suitably active in any on-wiki role to be less-useful than a steward. The whole principle is about having, on-tap, our own oversighters. --Brian McNeil / talk 19:24, 11 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]
weak oppose I have to agree with Brian on this one. Congrats on graduating, but who knows if you'll be gone again. --Calebrw (talk) 20:17, 11 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Abstain - I've not been on wikinews too long so I can only vote for members whom I've had experience with and since I have not yet met this candidate, I can neither vote yea or nay - but I did feel I should explain why, hence the abstain. Turtlestack (talk) 06:18, 12 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]
