  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - Good Wikimedia contributions and we need more Associate Editors. --Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 20:07, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - Despite minimal academic publishing experience, I think that they have a very useful perspective coming from a Food and Drug administration background. Their broad experience across multiple wikimedia platforms is also clearly useful. I think they'd be a fine fit with either WikiJMed or WikiJSci. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 23:59, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose there is little to go on here - one publication - so I do not support this one. Posted on behalf of user:Rwatson1955 (currently unable to post from China) 05:30, 21 November 2019 (UTC)
Rwatson1955, thanks for your feedback. In addition to my academic publishing experience, I have served in various management, administrative and leadership capacity in the Wikimedia movement which I believe are plausible and would be valuable to either WikJMed or WikiJSci if elected. I'd be happy if you could review your position. Regards. T Cells (discusscontribs) 09:39, 21 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - for Associate seems to have an adequate grounding in this, and as noted by others has a useful perspective. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 11:59, 21 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I agree that there's little to go on, but at the same time I we have enough to support an associate editor position. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 04:43, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
