Isabelle Belato (talk · contribs) – It's my absolute pleasure to present to you ‎Isabelle Belato for consideration for adminship. In 2020 all of a sudden their name started appearing all over my watchlist given our mutual interest in children's literature. I quickly learned that they were a highly capable editor, no doubt due to their work on Portuguese Wikipedia where they'd edited for a number of years before switching focus to English. Part of what made them so good, so fast, was not just their previous wiki experience, but their being unafraid to ask good questions to learn and grow combined with a warm and collaborative disposition. They have used their skill to improve numerous articles, including bringing four up to Good Article.

Over the past year I have seen them grow into an incredibly respected closer of discussions doing an excellent job of closing high profile and difficult discussions, including most recently the 2022 ACE RfC. I have had my eye on Isabelle as a future admin for quite some time and I am thrilled to be here today asking you to join me today in supporting them. Barkeep49 (talk) 01:52, 7 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I'm thrilled to be co-nominating an editor who exemplifies what being here is all about — Isabelle has proven their competence both in policy (as Barkeep49 alludes to above) and in the curation of content (to which their GA Julián Is a Mermaid speaks clearly).

Isabelle has kept away from editing content in the more contentious areas of Wikipedia (and this is no bad thing!), yet has shown an ability to keep cool and answer queries civilly in the rare cases where discussions had got heated.

These qualities, along with their need for the tools to more effectively maintain our content, bring me to ask just one final question — will you join us in supporting this wholly qualified candidate for adminship? — TheresNoTime (talk • they/them) 09:26, 7 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Candidate, please indicate acceptance of the nomination here: I'm happy to accept Barkeep's and TNT's nomination, and thank both of them for their kind words. I have never edited for pay. I never edited Wikipedia before creating this account, Before creating this account, I edited with a different one (see answer to question 5 below). but I have a disclosed alternate account which I use to edit while on public networks.

Questions for the candidate

Dear candidate, thank you for offering to serve Wikipedia as an administrator. Please answer these questions to provide guidance for participants:

1. Why are you interested in becoming an administrator?
A: As someone who spends a lot of time patrolling recent changes, the tools would be helpful in preventing vandalism, as well as working on revdel'ing edit revisions and summaries when necessary. Most importantly, I spend a lot of time closing discussions, including more complex and contentious ones, and while non-admin closing is a thing, some can only be closed by vetted members of the community, either due to technical reasons (bans/blocks), or due to perception (eg.: the recent Fox News RfC). As an administrator, it would show the community trusts my ability in assessing and closing these discussions. I'd also help in other areas where administrators might be needed, and offer assistance when I could be helpful.
2. What are your best contributions to Wikipedia, and why?
A: When it comes to content editions, I'm very proud of all the articles I've created, especially those about queer people and their works, as writing these articles is a way to learn about them. A specific article would be The Lodger, which I stumbled upon one day and decided to improve when I learned it was one of the foundational works on the myth of Jack the Ripper. I also loved writing about Scary Stories for Young Foxes, which I ended up reading during my research and managed to improve it to GA status. Outside of mainspace, I've recently closed the "Updating BLOCKEVIDENCE" RfC. A somewhat long discussion that shows consensus is not only about whether editors agree or disagree with the options offered in the opening statement, but also what is being discussed by participants.
3. Have you been in any conflicts over editing in the past or have other users caused you stress? How have you dealt with it and how will you deal with it in the future?
A: The content areas I edit are usually very calm, but I've participated in some stressful discussions here and there. While I always try my best to keep my calm and oftentimes will avoid replying when I know it won't help advance the discussion, I remember being unnecessarily rude to a user in a discussion over userboxes. I apologized to them after the fact and haven't had any altercations like that with any other users, to the best of my knowledge.

You may ask optional questions below. There is a limit of two questions per editor. Multi-part questions disguised as one question, with the intention of evading the limit, are disallowed. Follow-up questions relevant to questions you have already asked are allowed.

Optional question from OrgoneBox
4. Would you agree to participate in some form of recall process if the community felt it necessary to pursue it?
A: I'm not sure if this will answer your question satisfactorily, but I'd be "willing to stand for 're-confirmation' of adminship" if any number of editors I look up to and respect asked for such in my talk page.
Optional question from Genericusername57
5. Did you use another account to edit the Portuguese Wikipedia between 2007 and 2009?
A: As far as I remember, I've only ever edited with this account, though I did edit under a different username for a lot of my tenure in the Portuguese Wikipedia until I asked for the account to be renamed in 2020.
I'm striking my original answer to this question since I was made aware that I, indeed, edited the Portuguese Wikipedia under a different account at that time period. While I didn't remember its existence, I can confirm it was mine. At some point in early 2009 I decided to abandon it and utilize a different account, which is the one I have now (though it went through a rename request in 2020). I apologize for this lapse of memory.
Optional question from LindsayH
6. What do you consider the most important of our priciples ~ pillars & PAGs?
A: To me the most important concept has always been neutrality. While I do have strong opinions and views on a variety of topics, as all people do, I've always done my best to not let that influence my editing of Wikipedia, especially in content space, and obviously when closing discussions. While I don't think some people understand what NPOV means in Wikipedia terms, this is what has allowed us, as a community, to cover a huge range of subjects, contentious or not, while also respecting reliability and our policy on BLP.
Optional question from Bilorv
7. Your signature reads "Isabelle", but doesn't make clear your full username, which can confuse newcomers. Would you consider changing it?
A: Thanks for the question, Bilorv. I've been reading the discussion below and I can see how not having one's full username in their signature could become an issue at times. I appreciate all those who participated in it, but I think Gusfriend makes a good point about newcomers possibly having issues with this (or even mobile users, as some mentioned), even if it's a small one. Since there is absolutely no cost to me in changing my signature to ensure these kinds of issues don't happen, I went ahead and changed it.
Optional question from Idoghor Melody
8. As an admin, it's often expected or requested to help other editors especially new users, by dealing with disputes, either resolving them or pointing the participants to proper venues for resolution and also editors who requests some permissions outside RFP(Rollback,IPBE etc). How do you see yourself in these aspect of an Admin's role?
A: Even before moving to the English Wikipedia I used to mentor new users and help at the Portuguese Wikipedia's equivalent to the Help Desk. Here, not only did I continue this work, I was also an early participant of the mentorship system introduced by the Growth Team. I've always tried my best to inform greenhorns about how to edit, create articles, where to go to find more information on what they are seeking, or how to proceed during a dispute. I don't see that changing if I were to become an administrator. I hope that answers your question.
Optional question from GeoffreyT2000
9. Will you be closing controversial AfDs or requested moves? I see that the last (and so far, only) AfD you have closed was Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Book of Imaginary Beings.
A: While I do intend on helping around with the various administrative tasks, I imagine not at first, no. Just as with any other activity I've done on Wikipedia, I will start by learning the tools and, as I grow more confident and used to them, will participate in these tasks to help keep the queues clear or as the need arises.
Optional question from 78.26
10. You state in Q1 that access to revdelete is one of the primary reasons for requesting the toolset. How or why would you judge something should be hidden from readers and editors as opposed to just reverting?
A: Most of the time, obvious vandalism need only be reverted and reported, but every so often the edit should be hidden from public records, usually because it violates our WP:BLP policy, as the edit contains offensive material or other kinds of inappropriate content (in less common occasions, RD#2 is also required outside of the mainspace to remove "grossly insulting" content, as it happened in this very RfA). I take the BLP policy very seriously, and I've requested deletion under criteria #2 a number of times at the IRC channel whenever I felt it was needed, usually when it involves libelous, unsourced/poorly sourced statements or extremely offensive and disparaging language. Sometimes I'll also request RD under criteria #1, for obvious copyright violation. There are also cases where information needs to be hidden due to WP:OUTING reasons, in which case a full revert is not often needed, but the relevant information needs to be removed and the original revision hidden before being WP:OS'ed (though I don't believe I've ever needed to request this).
Optional question from Red-tailed hawk
11. One of your noms mentioned that you switched from mainly editing the Portuguese Wikipedia to mainly editing the English Wikipedia. Out of curiosity, what factors played a role in your decision to switch your main wiki?
A: Thanks for the question, and I will try to be short as there isn't much benefit in dwelling in the past. While I was very content in simply creating new articles or translating the ones from the English Wikipedia, I became more involved in the internal parts of the project, but was eventually alienated by the community due to negative experiences with some editors, both off-Wikipedia, in their official Telegram group, and on-Wikipedia. As I interacted with the more respected and older users of the community, the more I became disillusioned, and, during the discussion that led to IP banning, I was disparaged, so I took that as my cue to leave.
Optional question from Saturnrises
12. Can a user remove a CSD tag from a page he has created?
A: Yes and no. The WP:CSD policy is quite clear that, for most cases, the page's creator can't remove the tag, and should instead use the talk page to explain why they disagree with it. It also explains that, for some specific criterias, the creator may remove them, either because they were the ones who requested the deletion, or because they deal with more advanced areas (ie. dabs, categories), where the creator is oftentimes an experienced and trusted user.
Optional question from MdaNoman
13: Suppose X is a new user in enwiki and started contributing here. But unfortunately they made pupetry in a CFD discussion as they don't know about law. What will you do then?
Optional question from Robert McClenon
14. Extended-Confirmed Protection is a relatively new feature. It is now commonly used on articles that are Contentious Topics. My question has to do with Extended-Confirmed create protection. When, in your opinion, should titles that have been repeatedly recreated, or redirects from titles that have been repeatedly recreated, be subject to Extended-Confirmed protection, as opposed to semi-protection or full protection?
A: Similarly to edits to existing articles, it would depend on the kind of disruption around those articles/redirects, and sometimes other factors (eg.: when WP:BLP is involved). ECP can either be used when autoconfirmed was not sufficient, or as a first measure when the page was repeatedly created by editors with the EC rights.
Optional question from Robert McClenon
15. What experience have you had in resolving or trying to resolve disputes between editors, either article content disputes or conduct disputes?
A: While not a common occurrence, due to the nature of the areas I edit in, I've attempted to resolve disputes whenever I thought I'd be able to course-correct a user who as bit too gung-ho, or who might not fully understand our policies on how to deal with other editors during an argument. At Talk:Bored Ape, for example, I explained the editor one should attempt to assume good faith, and exchanged some ideas on how to improve the article. At Kiwi Farms I've directed users how to best behave in sensitive areas of the Wikipedia, to varying degrees of success. While some do listen to the advices I give and things de-escalate, others aren't as receptive.
Optional question from
16. Hello, last year you commented in an ANI case against Darknipples. At that time, you called the block good. How would you try to resolve the dispute now?
Optional questions from NYC Guru
17. Aside from vandalism, under which conditions would you be willing to block someone indefinitely without a warning?
A: Well, I guess there are times where a bright-line rule is breached and a block is warranted with no need for a warning, such as grossly offensive messages at highly visible pages or sockpuppets that are WP:!HERE. Oftentimes, accounts that are created just for spamming and with a name that clearly connects it to what they are spamming.
18. What is your take on the Here essay? Should people be blocked just because their contributions are not building the encyclopedia despite not being harmful?
A: WP:!HERE is marked as an explanatory essay, meaning it falls somewhere between full essays and P&G. It is meant to supplement WP:NOT, and it does so by giving a list of behaviors that are usually seen by the community as signs that someone is a net negative to the project, and they should either course-correct themselves after proper warnings and discussions, or be shown the door. So, to answer your question, it depends on the kind of behavior, but even if they are being directly harmful, they are sometimes wasting editors' time that could be better used elsewhere.
Optional questions from Valereee
19. Would you like to comment on your willingness to do admin work in contentious areas?
A: As mentioned by Barkeep below, I have no issues editing in contentious areas, (ir)regardless of the subject. While I focus my content creation time on areas that are of my interest, such as children's and queer literature, I'm no stranger to editing articles under DS, especially gender and sexuality and modern American politics. While I don't do much content creation in that area, I do try to resolve content disputes, whether by commenting in or by closing discussions. As some examples, see Warsaw concentration camp RfC, Alchemy RfC, List of most expensive artworks by living artists RfC, Aghdam RfC and so on and so forth. I'd like to believe this shows my ability to remain neutral in these areas, as well as my willingness to give assistance whenever needed, administrative or otherwise.

  8. One of the most thoughtful, clueful editors I have had the pleasure of interacting with. Even when we've disagreed, I have found them to approach things from a position of caring deeply about the encyclopedia and the community that creates it, and to express their disagreement civilly and courteously.

  214. A few weeks ago, I mentally compiled a list of editors that could get adminship "at will", without need for nominators and with little opposition due to their competence and reputation. I am unsurprised to see half of that list here at RfA. While unthrilled by the lack of answers to Q13 and Q16 at the moment, I believe that the answer to Q7 shows an appropriate amount of consideration for others. One hopes that Isabelle will continue this approach in their adminship. Sdrqaz (talk) 01:32, 14 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

What really persuades me, however, is the linked complex ACE closing, which is impressively succinct and clear. I'd love to see them continue their work as an admin.

@Unbroken Chain:, would you consider moving to "neutral" because the objection is not very strong and it would be nice to have a unanimous result. Thank you for considering it, Jehochman Talk 03:00, 12 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Jehochman:Sounds like they had a hell of a day and some goodwill might help, even if it is a gesture. It really was my only concern because the process of creating an account and email etc to me would be a memorable event, you get different emails and such that remind you of various things. On a secondary note I see you are working on a PhD, best wishes on that, I'd like to earn one of those myself but paying for it an altogether different matter. I hope you stay well and glad to see you stuck around after experiencing a rough go of things yourself. Unbroken Chain (talk) 03:21, 12 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  1. Oppose Based on the candidate's afd participation. In addition, based on discussion above I do not see any clear need for tools. TheresNoTime states that "Isabelle has kept away from editing content in the more contentious areas of Wikipedia". I am afraid that is not a quality that is needed in an administrator. FYI: it seems rather un-Democratic that an oppose ivote was completely wiped off the board. An admin could leave the ivote and strike the rationale. A WP:PA or offensive material can be revdelled without a complete strike of an ivote. Lightburst (talk) 23:16, 12 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    This is not an attempt to get you to change your vote because there is more to it than this. But Isabelle does a fair amount of recent change patrolling, which has been noted by several supports, where tools can be helpful for revdel, protection, and blocks. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 23:23, 12 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Thanks Barkeep49. I just do not think we need more admins who avoid contentious areas. I appreciate you messaging me about it. I may reread the board. Lightburst (talk) 23:29, 12 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    That's also fair. I hope you'll indulge me then, in noting that I think TNT's comment was about where Isabelle edits. I think Isabelle has more of a willingness to get into contentious areas when they are UNINVOLVED. In question three Isabelle notes that they would have liked, for instance, to help close the Fox News RfC but felt that they couldn't because editors indicated (fairly I think) that it needed admin closer(s). In terms of a close they did perform, I think closing BLOCKEVIDENCE shows they're willing to get involved in high stakes issues that people feel strongly about. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 00:49, 13 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Per the second part of your comment, Wikipedia is not a democracy, and RfA is a consensus process like any other (hence why it's a "!vote" instead of a vote). Striking an oppose that was purely a personal attack with no substance seems uncontroversial. Dylnuge (TalkEdits) 04:46, 13 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I first met Isabelle when they were clearing a backlog of unclosed discussions. From what I saw they are perfectly willing to get into highly contentious areas, and they do a good job being neutral, objective, and fair. Maybe you could ask them a question about this and see what they say. Jehochman Talk 12:25, 13 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Neutral I think that their contributions are good and they have been nominated by users who's judgement I trust. Unfortuately I cannot support anyone for Admin whilst their signature does not contain their full username. Having the displayed signature being different to the user name makes things just that little bit harder for newcomers (and even more experienced users sometimes). It means that when editors look at a talk page conversation there is a disconnect between how the user may be referred to and how their signature is presented. This can become more acute as admins are often dealing with situations where editors will already be stressed or frustrated. I realise that this may seem somewhat arbitrary and having signatures like this is supported by consensus but that is how I feel.

This is a good point. Although I may find myself in the Support column soon, I hope Isabelle takes note of the issue you raise here. CX Zoom[he/him] (let's talk • {CX}) 22:18, 7 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Just to be clear, you're objecting to them signing with Isabelle instead of Isabelle Belato? Valereee (talk) 22:48, 7 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I can see where this comes from, but I don't think this would be a reason for me to be neutral or oppose especially as this shortening is just removing what seems to be to be a last name. Dreamy Jazz talk to me | my contributions 23:29, 7 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am not objecting to them signing with Isabelle rather than Isabelle Belato, that is acting within consensus and a perfectly reasonable thing to do. I am however choosing to be Neutral rather than Support for their application for administratorship based on it. In the last month I have seen the wrong people pinged due to this and it has caught me out several times where I have followed a link to a user talk page and then had to go back to confirm that I am in the right place. I have no trouble with use of colours, etc. or clever talk page link text but this is where I have the concern. I realise that my reasoning may put me in a minority of one and it is a quixotic approach and otherwise they look like an excellent choice but that is where I am coming from. Gusfriend (talk) 00:01, 8 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Would a simple correction to a signature change your stance on this candidate, Gusfriend? I agree that some signatures I've seen are indecipherable but I usually leave a comment about this on the editor's talk page and they make a change. Liz Read! Talk! 00:03, 8 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't think it's fair to call Isabelle's signature indecipherable. Obviously they're going to see this discussion and can, as CX Zoom suggests, decide if they wish to tweak their signature. I do appreciate Gusfriend noting that what Isabelle has done is well with-in current community consensus for signatures. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 00:09, 8 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Certainly Liz and if I hadn't been giving it some thought over the last few weeks I would have been really happy to support such a strong candidate. Overall they appear to be an excellent candidate and are receiving broad support from a large number of trusted editors. Gusfriend (talk) 00:09, 8 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I must say I struggle to understand why this would warrant an oppose !vote. Many administrators and experienced users shorten their signatures, or put their real names in instead, because they are able to be personalised and as such people will have their own unique ways of doing this. Plus, they have only removed their surname, and one can simply hover over the username/look in the signature in the source code to see the full username. If the signature had clashing colours that were difficult to read, I would understand, but this is not the case. Patient Zerotalk 02:12, 8 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't think the signature is a problem, but I do a lot of editing using the desktop site on my phone, and the hover-to-see-full-username thing doesn't work when using a phone (or a tablet I assume). There's a growing share of editors that edit from mobile, so hovering shouldn't be seen as a workaround. ScottishFinnishRadish (talk) 02:18, 8 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Then you could always look in the signature code instead - for example, say I decided to go by "PZ" in my signature, when editing a Wikipedia page you can see the user's full username in the signature code, so you would be able to see my username is in fact Patient Zero. I understand it may take a while to get used to for newer editors, granted. Patient Zerotalk 02:24, 8 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@ScottishFinnishRadish: when using desktop view on the phone, leaving a link pressed for a few seconds makes the navigation popup pop up (heehee Face-grin.svg). –FlyingAce✈hello 03:27, 8 October 2022 (UTC) Reply[reply]
Neither of these is good, as one requires opening a different page and looking for the signature to see the username, and the navigation popup seldom displays the full length of the url, and you can't copy the username to ping. ScottishFinnishRadish (talk) 11:50, 8 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
What is needed here is neither a neutral !vote nor a pile-on condemnation, but a question to the user, which I have now asked (#7). — Bilorv (talk) 07:30, 8 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There are around a dozen user names that begin with 'Isabelle', if not more. What is needed is a good faith minor tweak to the signature. In any case, as far as this RfA is concerned, it's not a dealbreaker. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 08:38, 8 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
