This week, no candidates either joined or withdrew from the race. Meanwhile, the straw poll set up by Jimbo Wales continued. As of press time, 22 people supported Jimbo's second proposal, 16 supported an open election, four for Talrias's proposal, and three for Jimbo's first proposal. In addition, two people indicated that they were unsure, and one Wikipedian expressed his feelings under the "Don't care" section.

It is uncertain when the straw poll will end and when elections will begin.
