I think it is unnecessary. Sure arbcom is rarely needed, but it does not hurt anything having it “active”. --Cspurrier 00:48, 14 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Do you consider yourself active enough as a contributor to run for this position? --Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 22:44, 14 July 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I am most definitely not nearly as active as I once was, but I still skim RC daily and read the WC as well as doing the print edition nearly daily. I believe I am active enough for the demands of arbcom. --Cspurrier 23:55, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
  • What is the status on getting on Google News?--Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 00:02, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

I was going to try to fix the remaining tods/bugs and then try to convince someone from the foundation to get involved. I am sure I can find someone with Google connections at Wikimania :). --Cspurrier 20:47, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
