I would like to nominate Skenmy as an additional checkuser. He is one of the newly elected ArbCom members, I believe already identified to the Foundation, and as I said when voting to support his ArbCom membership, mature beyond his years. I have every reason to believe that he has the best interests of the project at heart, as well as the technical knowledge to interpret CU results and take appropriate action. I trust him to keep up to date with the checkuser mailing list and block open proxies as they are discovered, as well as share findings from locally prompted checkusers with the list as an aid to keeping cross-wiki vandalism under control. --Brian McNeil / talk09:47, 2 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Comment As an aside I would like to thank the various stewards and CUs from other projects who have rallied round and endorsed myself and BrianNZ. If you want to be utterly cynical about it, they simply don't want to see the required work land in their in-tray.
Moving on from that, I would again urge these people (Stewards, non-en.wn CheckUsers) to support Skenmy's candidacy. I feel that the wide community support given in the below votes clearly demonstrates that this candidate has the community's endorsement and trust. I would hate to see him lose out on a technicality. --Brian McNeil / talk11:58, 3 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am not excessively active on Wikinews but I do edit occcassionally and read a fair bit. Feel free to not count this vote if it goes against any local policies for activity. Support. giggy(:O)04:55, 3 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Support Sorry to get in so late on this. I have been mostly away from my computer for the weekend, and when I have been present, it's been involved in some other checkuser vote drama. Skenmy has my full support (and since he ran for board, he's identified). Cary Bass (talk) 16:18, 4 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Abstain Although I support this user as a Check User, I'm not sure if the MWF policy requires age of legal majority in the nation of residence. If legal majority is required, I'm not sure if the user would then qualify. (Am interested in changing my abstention to support following clarification by MWF legal team.) - Amgine | t 03:58, 4 August 2008 (UTC)striking as per original abstention, will vote support) - Amgine | t02:54, 5 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
