Okay, I spent some time as advanced contributor, and now I can be promoted.

I guess the same conditions like for getting an advanced contributor aplly: http://tatoeba.org/eng/faq#advanced-contributor

However, I remeber that they were voting on new advanced contributors in the IRC channel, but i'm not sure. I guess you'll have to contact Trang.

What is your motivation to become a corpus maintainer?

Actually sometimes ago we decided for transparency reason to make the promotion to the corpus maintainer grade a public process made here on the wall, so that other people can express their support or their reserve against a candidate.

Je suis totalement opposé à ce que Corvard soit Gestionnaire du Corpus pour les raisons suivantes :

1) il n'est pas particulièrement doué en langues.
2) Il traduit dans des langues qu'il ne maîtrise pas
3) il est très agressif et m'a gravement insulté à de nombreuses reprises sans raison (mais il est vrai que arcticmonkey fait ça aussi...)

Et indiquer dans son profil qu'on est de l'Antarctique n'aide pas spécialement à établir une quelconque confiance...

personally, if possible, I'd request that his "Advanced Contributor" status be turned back to "Contributor",
since "advanced" is a status you'd normally give to trustworthy contributors.

My guess is Corvard is no more than 12 years old...

For now according to his behavior on the wall i back this request.

The initial demand for more power already seemed strange to me but i thought that it might have language reasons.

I would personally object to granting Corvard corpus maintainer rights.
He has been advanced contributor for just about a month and I think it is quite a short term to pick up on it.
Furthermore I believe that higher possibilities require higher responsibility -- сorpus maintainer should be very punctual and careful person, and no less important is to be attentive to people. As I see it, Corvard sometimes is quite abrupt in his actions and words.
I honestly believe that he have good intentions requesting for promoting, but this time I would vote to leave his status as it is. I hope he won't have hard feelings about me after that.

Like you, corvard, I am an advanced contributor, and in my eyes there is a lot that can be done in this position. What I want to say by this is; it's good to know that you are ready to support the team of the corpus maintainers, but maybe there is no need to hurry. In a later moment of time you will probably have much more support, especially if in the mean time you continue to contribute so actively like you do now - thus becoming known by more people - and say a bit more about you motivation and the work you want to accomplish being an c.m. As far as I am concerned; today I still don't know you enough to recommend you, but I highly appreciate the work you are doing now by adding very many Russian sentences. In order to make Tatoeba really useful it is very important to increase the number of sentences in those languages which at the moment are not (yet) in "leading positions".

as long as they accurately translate the sentences they are meant to translate...

I'm not particularly interested in who is right and who is wrong in this case, but I'm quite convinced that Tatoeba _sentences_ ARE NOT the place to wage such flame wars as here:

http://tatoeba.org/pol/sentences/show/1575954

It's nothing personal (it doesn't matter whom it concerns), but I consider such behavior UNACCEPTABLE.

I completely agree, specially in the case of a moderator or advanced user, someone who has earned the trust of the community. That's why I agree with Marcelo that he's not trustworthy, so he shouldn't be given special powers. Sorry corvard, it's nothing personal, it's just that I like this site and I want the best for it.

Was there any discussion on this sentence? I dont see any angmore. The sentence on its own is not insulting unless conected to someone.
