When discussing, please do not set up or participate in a "vote" as this is not an election. If you wish to participate, write a short explanation of your opinion. Try to avoid repeating the same arguments made by others, instead just state that you agree with them. Try to avoid namecalling and personal attacks.
I still don't think that a nomination system is the right way to go in such a relative performance competition, but since you apparently need to have such a page in order to participate, I'll open up this nomination for myself.
I'm a relatively new member (80 edits so far, not counting this one), but I think I proved my worth (or at least gave a good impression of what I'm capable of).
I seem to get along well enough with users and sysops, and one of my fields of interest (economics) is in an area that's not exactly overcrowded with sysops from what I saw so far, so I would be able to do some maintenance work in this area as I go along.
My major contributions can be found on my user page. On the more technical side, I have a good bit of experience with templates and their application (like my correction to the use of the Sysop Nomination Discussion template used on these pages, which I silently fixed before the major discussions started) and know my way around the MediaWiki markup and structure. --JLindon 13:31, 10 May 2007 (EDT)
- I endorse this nomination. --Ed Poor 19:45, 10 May 2007 (EDT)
- I assume this is about me voicing my disapproval of Flippin's block and the following discussion on my user talk page where I said that your addition to CP:Civility is apparently being used to erase all traces of criticism of CP, thus driving away productive contributors? If so, I would hardly call that a "lack of judgment". I just happened to have an opinion that didn't echo yours. --JLindon 07:08, 12 May 2007 (EDT)
- I support JLindon's nomination. I think ASchafly could side with Ed Poor in this. Leopeo 07:20, 12 May 2007 (EDT)
You don't seem to cause too much trouble, and you're good with templates - we techies must stick together in such a technically desolate wasteland, you know :) - and I feel that you would make a fine sysop. --Liπus the Turbohacker(contact me) 10:14, 13 May 2007 (EDT)
