Nine stewards elected

By Flcelloguy, January 16 2006

The steward elections concluded this week, with nine of the sixteen candidates meeting the requirements, which included a minimum of eighty percent support and at least thirty support votes. All nine were later granted approval by the Board. The nine new stewards are Jean-Christophe Chazalette, Ausir, Romihaitza, Walter, Paginazero, Jon Harald Søby, Suisui, Rdsmith4, and Ascánder. One current steward, Arno Lagrange, was also demoted after he failed to garner the required amount of support.

In addition, Raul654 withdrew from the race prior to its closure after he faced opposition from users citing that he had little or no interlanguage experience. "While I don't agree with [the users who voted oppose], I can appreciate where they are coming from," he said. "So, I'm withdrawing my candidacy, with no hard feelings."
