User:Erutuon for admin

Nomination: I hereby nominate Erutuon (talkcontribs) as a local English Wiktionary Administrator. Erutuon does a lot of valuable work with templates and modules.

See User talk:Erutuon § Administrator?


  • Vote starts: 12:14, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Vote ends: 23:59, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Vote created: 12:14, 15 September 2019 (UTC)


  • Languages: en, grc-2, la-1, de-1, fr-1, ar-1 (except for English, not much conversational ability)
  • Timezone: UTC-6 (winter), UTC-5 (summer)
I refused a few times before, but this time I accept because I think I could do useful things with some of the admin tools, such as moving and deleting incorrect titles, protecting vandalized templates and modules, and improving or adding abuse filters. — Eru·tuon 18:33, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

    Support I obviously support Erutuon, but are Wonderfool votes even valid? Seems to me a permablocked user shouldn't be allowed to create votes. --{{victar|talk}} 22:36, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
    Well, I suggested creating the vote and asked for help. The anonymous IP obliged. I didn’t know who it is (how did you know?). — SGconlaw (talk) 02:23, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
    I'm aware. It's rather obvious that it's Wonderfool. --{{victar|talk}} 03:43, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
    The IP only created the page and didn't cast a vote (which they obviously can't), so I don't know if there is anything we need to determine if it's "valid". Nardog (talk) 13:52, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
    Again, as I just said, I'm aware of the situation. You don't need to repeat it. --{{victar|talk}} 17:46, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
    If by "Wonderfool votes" you meant "a page under Wiktioanry:Votes created by an IP which appears to be the same person behind Wonderfool" and not "votes on this page cast by Wonderfool('s socks)", yeah, that was not clear at all. Nardog (talk) 17:57, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
    Who are you even quoting now? Strike that too, I don't care. --{{victar|talk}} 18:03, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

  19. Symbol support vote.svg Support. We need admins like Erutuon, although I disagreed with the change to {{der3}} etc, (since redirected by Benwing in another "great improvement", an admin I have had trouble with in other changes). We don't need admins like Koavf, whom I regret voting for. DonnanZ (talk) 17:20, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

  21. Symbol support vote.svg Support Seems like a perfect candidate, from the impression that is available. On a general note, the English Wiktionary still lacks easy-to-desysop policy, and Wiktionary:Votes/2019-09/Replacing de-sysop votes with confirmation votes does not fare well so far. Something should be done, but I don't know what that would be. I think a superminority has a de facto power to enforce an easy-desysopping policy via conditional admin supports, but seems unlikely to wish to do so. --Dan Polansky (talk) 18:01, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

    It doesn't matter who created the vote. SGconlaw suggested it, that's what matters. DonnanZ (talk) 10:41, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
    Wow, someone else to tell me what happened. Thanks. --{{victar|talk}} 12:00, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
    The IP seems to belong to a block assigned to Megafon, a Russian telecom. Yet another example of Putin trying to influence Western elections! - TheDaveRoss 12:11, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
    I don't think Wonderfool has migrated to Russia. As long as it isn't Johnson or Trump. DonnanZ (talk) 12:55, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
    Konichiwa, behold, the power of a VPN. But as I say above, I'm abstaining because of it being an IP created vote, regardless of the actor. --{{}} 02:57, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
