LuK3 (talk · contribs) – Today it’s my honor to nominate LuK3 (not to be confused with Luk3) for adminship. LuK3 first came to my attention as the guy who was asking for revdel multiple times a day on IRC. Wouldn’t it be easier, I thought, if we just gave him the toolset so he could perform those revision deletions himself? The answer is yes and I think LuK3 has more than shown himself ready over the past 12 months to be an asset to the community not only with revdel but other parts of counter-vandalism patrolling including page protection and handling blocks.

LuK3’s skills range beyond this one area, however. He has shown himself to be skilled at content creation having worked to help two lists to featured list status and he has a GA which earned him a million award. LuK3 has also participated in other areas of the project including third opinions and as a member of the volunteer response team (OTRS). His is a calm presence and one that remains ever open to feedback. You can see evidence of this in the various ways he has improved himself in the last 8 years since his first RfA. He is someone I expect to continue helping our readers and editors in a number of ways in the months and years to come. I hope you will join me in supporting his candidacy. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 19:11, 12 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Anyone who has worked with LuK3 is familiar with his industriousness and dedication to the project. As my colleague Barkeep49 has discussed, LuK3's project experience is broad and deep; his contribution history spans Featured and Good content creation and extensive behind-the-scenes maintenance. Among the contributions that he’s made that aren’t as visible on Wikipedia itself, LuK3 is a 9-year member of the ACC team, processing over 1,000 requests, and in just the last year he has submitted over 75 requests for suppression to the oversight queue (a small portion of his total revdel requests). The broadness of his experience will make him a more empathetic administrator when working with editors in every corner of the project; the depth of his experience will no doubt make him a particularly productive administrator, with no end of tasks in sight.

What is, in my view, equally as impressive as LuK3's contribution history is his sheer kindness and patience in interacting with others. During the time that I’ve been following his work, LuK3 has exuded a calmness and good temperament that has impressed me. LuK3 doesn't cause trouble and possesses the skill and judgment to be one of our best. I have every confidence that LuK3 will make a terrific administrator, and I hope you agree.

Candidate, please indicate acceptance of the nomination here: Thank you both Barkeep49 and L235 for the nomination and co-nomination. I accept the nomination. For disclosure, I have not and will not edit for pay and have one legitimate alternate account for security reasons, see User:Luke (alt). -- LuK3 (Talk) 21:35, 12 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Questions for the candidate[edit]

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

1. What administrative work do you intend to take part in?
A: Since most of my Wikipedia work has been in counter-vandalism, I intend on using the administrator tools at WP:RFPP, WP:AIV, and WP:UAA. I find myself in the revdelete IRC channel quite often asking for revision deletions, so having the tools to deal with those problematic edits would be extremely beneficial. In addition, I have prior experience in speedy deletion so that is an area I would like to work in as well. Those are the areas in which I would participate in as an administrator.
2. What are your best contributions to Wikipedia, and why?
A: I believe my best contributions are my anti-vandalism and janitorial work. While not the prettiest or glamorous work, keeping articles clean and free of disruptive material is an essential part of the project. With more than 7 years of fighting vandalism, I believe I have the knowledge to help out in the administrator side of anti-vandalism work. As a member of the Account Creation team, I also take pride in helping editors create an account so they can contribute constructively.
For content creation, I'm proud of the television-related articles that I brought to either good or featured status. I helped bring Emilia Clarke and List of awards and nominations received by Emilia Clarke to good article and featured list status, respectively. I am also in the process of bringing Game of Thrones to FAC. In addition, I helped promote List of awards and nominations received by Game of Thrones to FL.
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: I have been in a few edit disputes over the course of my Wikipedia career. Some are editors who I either reverted or tagged their article for speedy deletion. I am a firm believer in assuming good faith and always try to help editors and guide them to make constructive edits in the future. In addition, as a member of the Volunteer Response Team, I often have to work with readers who are not aware of the full list of Wikipedia's policies and guidelines and their intricacies. When dealing with tickets, I always try to explain these policies and guidelines in a non-judgemental and neutral way so readers have a better view on how Wikipedia operates. I never try to let on-wiki disputes or attacks affect me personally. At the end of the day, we are all here to build an encyclopedia and having ill-feelings or a negative attitude will only cause consequences which might reflect in my editing.

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.

Additional question from Vanamonde93
4. It's been a while since your first RFA, so I don't think any reasonable person would hold it against you. I'd be interested to hear if (and if so, how) your approach to anything has changed significantly since then.
A: I would characterize my first RFA run as nervous and hesitant. In hindsight, having WP:ORCP around when I ran would have probably been beneficial to see where I stood as a nominee. Over the following years of editing, I stepped out of my normal editing routine and explored other areas of the project, including 3PO and more content work. -- LuK3 (Talk) 17:12, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Additional question from Dolotta
5. What area or areas of the English Wikipedia are you the weakest?
A: I think I am weakest in the template namespace. I have the utmost respect for editors who work and develop intricate templates for wider community use however I do not picture myself getting involved in template development or maintenance as an administrator. -- LuK3 (Talk) 18:59, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Additional question from SilkTork
6. You nominated Yankees–Red Sox rivalry for GA, and then handled the review, dealing with all the issues raised, for which you were complimented. Yet you don't list this article as one you helped bring to GA status. Why is that? SilkTork (talk) 09:41, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
A: Most of my work on that article to bring it to Good Article status involved small changes (copyediting, reference/source changes, etc.) and not large content additions. I did not feel it was right to list that article because I was not one of the editors to significantly contribute to the prose. -- LuK3 (Talk) 10:54, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree with you. I like that you have that perspective. SilkTork (talk) 13:34, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Additional question from Ktin
7. What in your view is the role of an Administrator in making Wikipedia a friendly place for new editors? What specific actions will you take as an Administrator to go over and beyond that to make Wikipedia welcoming to fresh editors? Ktin (talk) 16:05, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
(edit conflict)A: All editors, not just administrators, should have a hand in assisting and welcoming new editors. As stated in my answer to question 3, I always try to explain Wikipedia policies and guidelines in an easy to understand way. One administrative area to help and assist new and inexperienced editors is requests for undeletion. It is always good for an editor, especially new editors, to improve an abandoned draft or AFC submission for possible publication. Lending out a helping hand to new editors and assuming good faith is extremely important to editor retention and making Wikipedia a pleasant place to edit and participate. -- LuK3 (Talk) 16:39, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Additional question from SilkTork
8. You've been made an admin (congratulations!) and you're closing AfDs that are over seven days old. You come upon one where the nominator simply says "This should be deleted", and there are 10 Keep !votes which are saying "No, it shouldn't", "Keep it", "No harm", "I like it," etc. And you look at the article and notice three solid (though not Speedy) policy based reasons to delete (perhaps unsourced spam copied from a company website, though it could be anything). What do you do? SilkTork (talk) 07:43, 19 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
A: Articles for deletion is not a straight vote process. In this situation, I would participate in the deletion discussion and base my argument in the applicable policies and guidelines. Since all of the keep !votes, in addition to the nominator statement, do not cite or reference any policies and guidelines, my argument should carry more weight than the WP:ILIKEIT keep !votes. I would also hope my argument would persuade others to base their reasoning in policies and guidelines as well. -- LuK3 (Talk) 13:53, 19 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Additional questions from Robert McClenon
9. What experience have you had in resolving or trying to resolve disputes between editors, either article content disputes or conduct disputes?
A: I have provided multiple third opinions over at Wikipedia:Third opinion. One that specifically stands out in my mind was an issue regarding too many images on the FOCSA Building article back in May. I agreed that there was too many images and should be cut down, given the size of the article. The discussion was reignited last month, see Talk:FOCSA Building#Too many images. I bought up the user conduct issue to AN/I, see Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/IncidentArchive1046#OWN and IDHT issues on Talk:FOCSA Building. Fortunately, it looked like the editor did get the issue and removed images so no further action was needed. -- LuK3 (Talk) 21:31, 19 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Additional question from Nalbarian
10. This question is on BLP (biography of living person). Important personalities from remote areas of a country experience significantly less and different media coverage than their other places' counterparts. Eventually, they are viewed as less significant. What's your view on this? Do you have any idea to implement tertiary sources for an article in future? Nalbariantalk 06:04, 23 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Please keep discussion constructive and civil. If you are unfamiliar with the nominee, please thoroughly review his contributions before commenting.

  1. As nominator. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 15:08, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  2. Not a jerk, has a clue. TonyBallioni (talk) 15:12, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  3. As co-nominator. Kevin (aka L235 · t · c) 15:13, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  4. Support. Per nominators. I think the candidate has the right temperament and attitude, and need to be an administrator, with both content creation and anti-vandal work. epicgenius (talk) 15:21, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  5. Definite support from me. I actually asked LuK3 a couple months ago whether anyone had talked to him about doing an RfA. He shows up frequently in the admin areas I watch (UAA, RfPP, CSD, and revdel requests on IRC). More importantly, his requests in those places are almost always correct - I may have declined a couple of his revdel requests as not quite bad enough to merit deletion, but that's an area where we'd rather someone ask if they're unsure. As such, he has clearly demonstrated his need for the tools and competence in those areas. On the personality side, LuK3 is level-headed and unfailingly polite. He will be a solid addition to the admin corps. GeneralNotability (talk) 15:22, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Just to add I also appreciate LuK3 bringing up marginal rev del cases and have every expectation that he'll continue to discuss rather than act on such matters, as you and I both do GeneralNotability, should he get the toolset. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 15:28, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  6. Support. This candidate has an admirable skillset, and more than enough activity since his return to assuage any concerns I might have. I might bring up his deletionist nature, but if that's the case, I've really reached the bottom of the barrel. Nosebagbear (talk) 15:26, 16 September 2020 (UTC) And yes, after an edit clash I accidentally duplicated Epicgenius' !vote, apologies to both!Reply[reply]
  7. Support - in past encounters LuK3 has been willing to discuss his actions & consider alternatives. The sort of consideration it's good to see in an admin. Cabayi (talk) 15:27, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  8. Support Good mastery of CSD, writer of some large articles, good at Afd. What's not to like. scope_creepTalk 15:29, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  15. Support – it's a full time job keeping up with LuK3's revdel requests and it's definitely time for us to let him handle them himself. As with the nominators, my interactions with the candidate have always been positive, and I trust his judgement. – bradv🍁 16:37, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Too bad the RfA didn't run a week earlier, otherwise we could force him to apply for OS too! GeneralNotability (talk) 17:32, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  16. Support – I'm very pleased to support. LuK3 is one of our most helpful editors in the behind-the-scenes maintenance areas of the project where the admin toolset is most needed, and his content work is quite good as well. Let's give him the mop. Mz7 (talk) 17:08, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  19. Support I most frequently see LuK3 at IRC asking for revdels, and he seems to have very good judgement for them, and is always very courteous.

  28. Support as one of LuK3's "revdel bitches" I can say hand on heart (rumours I don't have one being unsubstantiated) that they've got the necessary experience, skill and expertise in understanding what to delete, what to keep and what to get a second opinion on. I went through their contributions and looked at other admin-y type stuff and when I could find nothing of any concern, I begged them to run months ago. If I wasn't such a lazy fucker, I would have offer to nominate them, in fact. Nick (talk) 20:38, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

So far, the answer is no, so I will go with my initial impression. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 05:50, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  83. Support. Has demonstrated plenty of clue since the 2012 nomination, clearly can be trusted with the tools. Good luck! — sparklism hey! 08:17, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  85. Absolutely – A highly tenured editor with a good head on his shoulders. LuK3 should definitely become an administrator. Kurtis (talk) 11:34, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  87. Support I've seen LuK3's good work and trust that the tools will build upon it. Airplaneman (talk) 16:48, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  88. Support I've run into LuK3 quite a few times "behind the scenes" at ACC and OTRS. From what I've seen, he handles those extra buttons carefully and well and has been open and responsive to discussion about his actions when I've had occasion to do so. No doubt that will continue to the admin buttons. ‑‑ElHef (Meep?) 17:00, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  89. Support for the counter vandalism work. Eatcha 19:02, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  90. Support I trust the conominator, and if they can trust that LuK3 can be trusted with the tools I can too. Furthermore, I see no issues which would lead me to oppose. One of the arguments made by the neutrals are that they have had editing hiatuses. I would counter that real life happens, so having editing hiatuses is not necessarily a bad thing. Also their last hiatus was September 2019, so they have been consistently editing for more than a year. Dreamy Jazz talk to me | my contributions 19:51, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  105. Support - I've spotted LuK3's reports at AIV and RFPP many times, and without exaggeration I don't think I've ever had cause to disagree with one, to the point that I've deliberately picked his report first out of a backlogged AIV before, just because I know it'll be actionable. Giving him the admin bit would significantly reduce the backlog of these damn correct reports that other admins need to do stuff about. ~ mazca talk 19:59, 19 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Their work over the last 12 months is alone enough to qualify , and Amanda makes a pertinent observation with: Carelessly and being aware that we are all humans and that super dedication (addiction) to the project burns people out which makes them bad admins, are two very different things. - not likely to be any more careless than the admin who stained an otherwise clean block log.

  118. Belated support.

  1. Neutral low article creation and main space participation. High delete !votes at AfD and many speedy noms. The only thing that kept me from opposing at this time was the fact that the AfD !votes are not just drive-by. My criteria for an administrator involve protecting content and content creators and I am not sure this candidate would do both. Lightburst (talk) 20:36, 16 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Any one of the admin corps could take a long break right now without warning or explanation. That's just how things go. I think a year of constant editing is more than enough to show that LuK3 is at least actively engaged right now (and so isn't likely to disappear right after getting the bit). GeneralNotability (talk) 23:01, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I guess you have a point, but I still think my point stands. Foxnpichu (talk) 13:33, 19 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  3. Neutral, leaning oppose. Same as User:Lightburst, I am rather disappointed by the candidate's delete-bias at AfD and low non-automated mainspace participation. The only things that are stopping me from going to the oppose section is that the nominators are editors I hold in very high regard and there are no allegations of misconduct since this candidate's last RfA. Deryck C. 23:20, 17 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Deryck Chan, re 'delete bias' I suspect that LuK3 shows up at AfD the same way I do - either they're nominating or they find a page already nominated for deletion while patrolling and decided to chime in. That usually leads to an editor's stats favoring "delete" (as opposed to people who show up at AfD via Wikipedia:Articles for deletion).
