Interesting Vandenberg not running. His term is up, no? Did he just have enough? Can't blame him, if so.

Looking at the eligibility criteria:

(i) has a registered account and has had at least 150 mainspace edits by 1 November 2011.
(ii) meets the Wikimedia Foundation's criteria for access to non-public data or confirms in their election statement they will fully comply with the criteria.[note]
(iii) has disclosed any alternate accounts in their election statements (legitimate accounts which have been declared to the Arbitration Committee prior to the close of nominations need not be publicly disclosed).

I see nothing in there about a nominee being in "good standing", i.e. not currently indef blocked. I also see nothing in there about someone being nominated by someone else. I believe both Greg and Peter fulfill
these criteria (though Greg might run afoul of ii) if he wants to keep his current accounts active). You guys should go for it. Horsey too.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:ACE2011 for the 'good standing' bit. I had thought of standing this year and I suspect this is why Arbcom refused to lift the block, despite (like months ago) earlier having agreed an unblock.

I'm particularly bitter about that, especially about cowardy-custards like Vandenberg who love to talk the talk but cannot walk the walk. Same goes for Iri and 'Cool hand'.

The fact that DeltaQuad is running (and therefore is apparently an adult) surprises me. He's the type who spends all his time robotically playing Whack-a-Mole with sockpuppets, and based on what I've seen, I thought he was a 16-year-old Aspie for sure. In that context, this part of his statement amuses me:

QUOTE
Without the human factor I might as well be a programed bot run on the toolserver. (I’m speaking sarcastically of course) But with the addition of humanity, I think there comes an understanding of what happens.


I give him credit for boldly framing himself as the "human candidate," despite being one of Wikipedia's most robotic admins. An equally bold maneuver was giving up his admin tools (five months after passing RfA, and one month before the election) for a whole month so he could claim to be learning "to understand the position of a non-admin again." What a crock! There will be plenty of people on Wikipedia who lap it up, though.

DeltaQuad seems to be very interested in sockpuppets, while having little to no ability to discern them. A recent example.

Nominations now closed with SilkTork (who I consider to be a very strong candidate), Maxim, and Panyd running.

Could you please elaborate why you consider SilkTork to be a very strong candidate?

How charming. They've got FIVE of their most disgusting patrollers -- AGK, Courcelles, DeltaQuad,
Geni, Hersfold -- running for Arbcom. Plus four people who do nothing but use Wikipedia as a
private Facebook. The remainder are gnomes who use bots to mess with formatting (SilkTork included).
Very few of the candidates have actually written and finished any articles.

It's broken, the whole thing is fucked. That's all I can say.

Final list:
1 AGK (CU/OS, AUSC Member)
2 Coren (i)
3 Courcelles (CU/OS, AUSC Member)
4 DeltaQuad (Former Admin)
5 Eluchil404
6 Geni
7 Hersfold (CU/OS, Former Arb)
8 Hot Stop (Non-Admin)
9 Jclemens (i)
10 Kirill Lokshin (i)
11 Kww
12 Maxim (Crat)
13 NWA.Rep (Non-Admin)
14 Panyd
15 Risker (i)
16 Roger Davies (i)
17 SilkTork
18 Worm That Turned

Cool Hand Luke, John Vandenberg, and Mailer Diablo are the only sitting arbs that aren't running again. There are 3 non-admins (one of which is former), 3 users with CU/OS that aren't currently sitting (2 of which are involved with ArbCom already, one who is a former arb), and one crat that isn't sitting in the running.

Interesting.

Panyd is nice but I don't think she's stable enough for ArbCom...

I was under the impression that DeltaQuad was a child.

I'm expecting Courcelles to be a shoo-in. Risker, Roger, Coren all have good chances as incumbents.

DeltaQuad is young, but likely over 18. Gratuitous outing link number one & number two.
