Wikimedia Foundation Board Election 2006: Announcement of result

James Forrester
We, the Election Officers, hereby give notice of the results of the
2006 Board of Trustees election. The winner is Erik Möller, also known
as "Eloquence" or "Xirzon". Assuming that the Board endorses the
result and appoints Möller, he will replace Angela Beesley, who chose
to resign [1] earlier this year. The term to which Möller will be
appointed will cover the rest of the term for which Beesley was
elected, and will end with the ordinary 2007 election.

In total, 2347 valid ballots were cast and accepted; the specific
results are as follows:

 1st - 987 (42%) - Eloquence (Erik Möller)
 2nd - 702 (30%) - Mindspillage (Kathleen (Kat) Walsh)
 3rd - 648 (28%) - Oscar (Oscar van Dillen)
 4th - 580 (25%) - Arnomane (Daniel Arnold)
 5th - 492 (21%) - Kim Bruning
 6th - 423 (18%) - AaronSw (Aaron Swartz)
 7th - 382 (16%) - Charles Matthews
 8th - 378 (16%) - Arno Lagrange
 9th - 375 (16%) - Cimon Avaro (Jussi-Ville Heiskanen)
10th - 356 (15%) - Zuirdj (Juan David Ruiz)
11th - 349 (15%) - Kelly Martin
12th - 346 (15%) - UninvitedCompany (Steve Dunlop)
13th - 323 (14%) - Improv (Pat Gunn)
14th - 315 (13%) - Linuxbeak (Alex Schenck)
15th - 297 (13%) - alex756 (Alex T. Roshuk Esq.)
16th - 237 (10%) - Evrik (Bruce Andersen)
17th - 109 ( 5%) - Ross.Hedvicek (Ross Hedvicek)

We would like to take this opportunity to give our thanks to all of
the developers, translators, those people who supported and promoted
the election, and all others for their support and assistance for the
election, and especial thanks to Tim Starling.

Congratulations, Erik.  I hope you can be as comprehensive in your
discussions with the community during your term as a board member as
you've been as a candidate, and I mean that without any hint of
sarcasm.  We need to know what's going on with the Foundation - and we
need to know where we can help.

Erik Moeller-3
In reply to this post by James Forrester
Whew. That was quite an exciting election. :-) Thanks to everyone who
voted for me, and special thanks to those who chose to endorse me
publicly. Winning an election is one thing; now the real work begins.

Congratulations to the runner-ups. I think the ranking should at least
alleviate fears that open elections will expose us to a takeover from
outside the community. If I hadn't run, the new Board member would now
be Kat, or Oscar, or Daniel, all of which would have been excellent
choices. Thanks for all the congratulations I have received; I may not
be able to respond to all of them.

For those who did not vote for me, or would have liked to be able to
explicitly vote against me, please give me a chance. I am honestly
interested in everyone's views on what I should or should not be doing
as a Board member, and ask only to be treated with kindness and
respect. I will always make an effort to do the same.

In the coming days, I intend to listen very carefully and accumulate
as much information as I can from many different sources about what
has gone right and what has gone wrong in the Foundation. I will also
send a separate Request for Comments. Rather than saying "I will do X"
right now, I need to get a grip on what will be feasible in the coming
months, and where the priorities should be. I hope you will be patient
with me, but please always feel free to talk to me about WMF matters.

Peace & Love,
Erik

Angela-5
Erik,

I'm torn between sending congratulations and commiserations. I do hope
you know what you're letting yourself in for. ;-)

Good luck, and I hope the result, which was the one I wanted, ends up
being the best result for the future of the Foundation and the
Wikimedia communities.

Angela
