Language skills of administratorsEdit
Based on s:Wikisource_talk:Administrators#Language_skills_of_administrators that I initiated there, I would like to suggest admins to voluntarily disclose their language skills. As we have so many translated quotes, knowing the language skills of administrators may make it easier to request translation verification and for inter-language coordinations. My dear fellow admins, how would you think of my idea?--Jusjih 02:30, 28 December 2007 (UTC) (admin here and on English Wikisource)
- Why did you delete the article ... We have repaired the article .. I have to add the sources .. I have also attached files for books PDF format ... I'm astonished by this act???? Is it deleted for deletion only??FALCON-MAN 08:26, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
- The article was deleted pursuant to Wikiquote:Votes for deletion/Hamid Bin Ahmad Al-Rifaie, where the consensus was that the subject is not sufficiently notable. Proponents for keeping the article did not provide persuasive evidence that the works are widely quoted or noted in sources independent of the author's affiliates. ~ Ningauble 15:48, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
- The article was nominated for deletion for certain reasons listed there .... Defects have been repaired and the addition of sources for the article ... As well as the addition of books and files attached to PDF format ..... Question: What is the benefit of the vote if the article had been repaired!!! Voting was on the defects, and defects repaired?? So the vote has no value to him??? In other words: the vote was for some reason ... The reason ended ... So vote for him no value FALCON-MAN 16:05, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
I have removed a newly added "nutshell" from this page (copied from Wikipedia), which read "Administrators are users trusted with access to certain tools. They are expected to observe a high standard of conduct, to use the tools fairly, and never to use them to gain advantage in a dispute."
I am not sure we need one, but I would not object if it accurately summarized the page. However, I think this language places an emphasis on behavioral issues present in the Wikipedia policy but not in the Wikiquote version. One may hope it never becomes necessary to add that particular emphasis here. ~ Ningauble 22:38, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
