Playing Devil's Advocate, I dispute that number.

I don't think that all 500 are *active*.

We could try it out for Bureaucrats first...

Re: Terms for adminship

Ok, but they would still have to be reconfirmed all the time under a
proposal like that...

On nl: re-elections are done en masse 4 times a year; this might be
too much for de: (50 re-elections at once), but a system where all
re-elections are being combined once a month could work out.

Information in advance about mowiki happenings

Hi all,

Currently there is a sysop election on mowiki, where 3 candidates are
pitted against each other rather than being voted on separately: Me,
Dmitriid, and Jeorjika.

I have 131 contributions in the main namespace, Dmitriid has 10, and
Jeorjika has 0.

Now, there are a number of issues here which I wish to consult with
the wider community over.

First of all, who is allowed to vote.

As it stands now, everybody who has already "expressed an opinion"
about the Wikipedia may vote. The majority of people who have
"expressed an opinion" are ro.wikipedians, with a minority of
Moldovans and others (including people such as Oleg Alexandrov,
Landroni, Dmitriid, Jeorjika, Gabix who are Moldovans, OldakQuill,
Monedula, who are from elsewhere).

This has always seemed unfair to me, since most of these people have
less than 10 contributions total, and only a few of them have any
contributions in the main namespace.

When suggesting that only people with a certain number of
contributions prior to a certain date (say, 10) be allowed to vote, I
was labelled as antidemocratic. When an "outsider", Christopher
Sundita, attempted to vote, his vote was deleted on the grounds that
he had not previously "expressed his opinion".

Aha!  Was it you who put the bug in his ear?  Once Wikimentary gets
added to the OED, etymologists will want to know.  Talk has largely
been by email and phone with Rory, as part of an older discussion of
how progress with their own short documentary is coming.  I've
transcribed the relevant parts of all private conversations to that
meta-page, so you can see there hasn't been all that much talk yet.

I'm trying to get Rory to edit wikis directly, but it's difficult.   --Sj

Date and time-formats

Dear all,
My name is Dennis Dikkerboom and since a couple of days I'm the new
ambassador of the Frisian Wikipedia. Since the new version of wikimedia (3th
of July) changed the format of dates and times to an American style, like
this: 22:10, 2005 jul 4 (UTC). We wondered if we could change it somehow
back to the original style, like this: 23.02, 1 jul 2005 (UTC).

Best regards,
 Dennis Dikkerboom

I'm not sure why it's changed, but the best way to request it be
changed back would be to file a request at bugzilla.wikimedia.org

Heh. Well, thanks for confirming it's not. But that's weird to not get
any email for so long. Did someone ban some trolls?
