BrandonWM added a comment to T10931: [ACCESS REQUEST]: New access for AmandaCath.

Note that an non-disclosure agreement is a required prerequisite before this request can even be evaluated

Actually per previous discussions with Owen via Discord, an NDA is not required for the Software Engineer position.

Technically, this is true, yes, assuming the Software Engineer is not requesting shell access. This is also true of the MediaWiki Engineer position. However, I do not see much point in this, given the low level of recent GitHub PRs/commits and the fact that any user could do software development for Miraheze without a title.

BrandonWM updated subscribers of T10935: [ACCESS REQUEST] New access for OrangeStar.

Naleksuh was a generally globally disruptive user (particularly on Meta Wiki and Phabricator), who Stewards should've globally locked as such prior to the events getting out of hand, so I can appreciate they have a tendency to ruffle peoples' feathers and cause them to act with some degree of irrationality. As such, I can partially forgive Orange Star for that irrationality, but at the same time and given the recency of the events, we're handing a lot of significant technical access with the MWE role, it does give me pause as to consider the likelihood for similar actions, either community or technical. So, while I would not necessarily oppose this request, perhaps only weakly, at the same time, I cannot support it, either

This is just not appropriate.

"Well, back in 1912 this user wrote "fuck miraheze" on their userpage, so I'll never trust them at all and I will always remind them of their past".

As we all know, people are just unchanging objects, and it's perfectly appropriate to always hunt them by reminding them of their past, no matter how much time has passed. After all, no one deserves chances, they all deserve to forever be reminded of their mistakes and never be able to break free from them.

I guarantee whatever Amanda did back then is nowhere near bad enough to still talk about it to this day. What, did they kill a person? I'm sure not.
