Your input soughtEdit

I am considering another RfA in 2019. Next year is an Olympic year, so by this time next year I need to make a firm decision whether to participate as a media representative, as I did in 2012 and 2016. This will affect my personal and work commitments in 2019 and 2020. Given past experience of what is involved, I do not think I should accept without the admin bit. Before I even go to ORCP, I am seeking the input of a small number of people who gave well-reasoned opposes at my last RfA. I am seeking constructive feedback on my editing, and whether you feel I have addressed the concerns that you raised. I take criticism very seriously, and assure you that I will act upon it, regardless of whether I ultimately decide to initiate another RfA. Hawkeye7 (discuss) 03:33, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Despite being first to oppose you last time I was wavering a bit on where to put it. When I first wrote my comment I originally did so in the neutral section. It was only after I typed it out that I decided it belonged under oppose. That was over three years ago and I was basing a lot of it on interactions I had four years before that. I did notice that during the RFA you acknowledged the block of Thivierr and I can even understand the thinking regarding Racepacket. At the time my main worry was that some of your decisions as an admin would be based more on who your friends are rather than what is the right course of action for the encyclopedia. However, I don't think anyone can doubt your commitment here and you must have some pretty thick skin; these seem like pretty good traits for a useful admin. Seven years is a long time, more than enough to ease even my long memory. I guess as far as advice goes I would suggest being open, honest and early in acknowledging your previous issues, in particular the desyopping. You are going to have opposes based on that no matter how much time passes, but you don't need a hell of a lot of new supports to succeed. I can't recall any recent issues from you and the few times we have crossed paths recently have been very pleasant. My default position would be to support you in another run this time.

Genetically Modified Virus page question- about sandbox proposalEdit

Hi Aircon I should say that I am rather a newbie to Wiki and am rather unsure about a lot of things. There were a significant number of things that I thought could be improved on page you had perviously made major contributions to  Genetically modified virus. These changes are all ones that I would agree with. Because of my personal uncertainty with Wiki etiquet I worked in my sandbox. Would you be willing to take a look and say if and how I might best proceed. Thanks Maxj27 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Maxj27 (talkcontribs) 11:08, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
