I would also like to nominate Green Giant for CU privs. Green Giant is the most active admin who has been looking after the many various activities which require the mop-and-the-bucket. Green Giant has been a steward, a sysop and a reviewer for many years now, and knows ins and outs of CUing and dealing with the (LT) abusers. In the recent days and weeks, with the increasing spam and abuse received on-enwn, I have been creating various AFs, and requesting CUs by stewards on meta; though Green Giant can't do it, because stews can't CU on projects they are active on. It is a shame we cannot (until now) utilise help of someone who is one of the most competent Wikimedians to deal with this thing, and granting them this privs will really help save too much of friction that happens making CU request on meta, back and forth, and deal with things quickly, and minimise the time lost behind that. I would urge you to support this nomination. Cheers! •–• 14:27, 12 July 2021 (UTC)

You may or may not have stats or numbers, and I do not expect high accuracy for your answer, but can you estimate how much vandalism exists in Wikinews which requires Checkuser tools to manage? Blue Rasberry (talk) 15:06, 16 July 2021 (UTC)
@Bluerasberry: I don’t have stats on vandalism to hand but the largest proportion needing Checkuser attention is spam. A good indicator would be the 75-80 new accounts blocked by the Abuse Filter over the last seven days or so. Also there is a list of earlier accounts which I dealt with a few days ago through loginwiki. --Green Giant (talk) 15:36, 16 July 2021 (UTC)
Support This user has a history of thoughtful on-wiki contributions and meta-wiki policy proposals. Through all of this I have seen this user to be good at managing large conversations and open discussion. With thousands of Wikinews contributions, admin rights here, much more cross-wiki experience, and my personal observations on how they manage discussion, I support this user's rights request.
