I think he's an excellent addition to wikipedia. His work on the histpry of Puerto Ricans is respectable, and he spends countless hours editing, reviewing or writing his articles. He does at least three articles per day, I think. Antonio El Bello Martin

This editor has not yet accepted the nomination.


  1. Antonio Pink Spot Lover Martin


  1. Not near enough experience. -- Michael Warren 22:40, 30 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  2. Needs more experience (Maybe DarkHorizon overstates it by saying 'Not near enough' however) EddEdmondson 22:45, 30 Jun 2004 (UTC)
    • Maybe so. Still, less than 500 edits on a small area of expertise isn't all that good for adminship, IMO. -- Michael Warren | Talk 22:49, 30 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  3. Sorry, but even with the "Adminship shouldn't be a big deal" policy, (nothing against him personally) this user is far below requirements (-500 edits, barely more than a month as a registered user). blankfaze | •• | •• 23:06, 30 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  4. Not enough time here, especially when the number of contributions is not particularly high. I would give the nomination far more consideration (that is, take the time to evaluate the quality of contributions) if it came from a more disinterested party. --Michael Snow 01:35, 1 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  5. Good work as an editor, but has no activity at all in the Wikipedia: namespace, and no interaction on Talk: pages, so no way of telling whether he would be a good admin or not. —Stormie 01:59, Jul 1, 2004 (UTC)
  6. I'm about of an age with Marine (call me Army 67-69) and I'd be flattered if one of my daughters nominated me so nicely, but this is way too soon in terms of time, edits and variety. Hope he'll be back in a couple of months when we know him better. -- Cecropia | Talk 04:44, 1 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  7. I'm very sorry, but I must agree (not enough edits) although Marine is a good, decent user. MerovingianTalk 07:14, Jul 1, 2004 (UTC)
  8. He seems like a nice person, but just not enough experience to qualify. Neutrality 16:15, 1 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  9. Good user. Try again in a few months. Cribcage 16:22, 1 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  10. Minimal experience in time (3 months min is my guideline to see user interaction, etc) and in edits (only 3 digits). Worries me also that nominator appears to be a family member. Maybe someday, but not yet. --VampWillow 23:40, 1 Jul 2004 (UTC)


  1. David Cannon 22:37, 1 Jul 2004 (UTC) Marine, I like the quality of your work, and would willingly support you if you qualified. I don't think you've been here quite long enough, but I assure you that if you hold on for a few months, your turn will come. I will vote for you then:-)
