I'm sorry but We will not grant any rights to anybody without prior community consultation. Why you can't open a request for adminship for yourself? Who forbids that? -- Dferg 12:24, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

Community consensus could not be established yet, and it will never be possible to show on-wiki whilst admin BBKurt manipulates and deletes and hides votings and voting requests and arbitrarily denies users their rights to vote and threatens to block users who speak up against him and another sysop.

Sorry, I do not know to make a better request and a better place for it. If you do know one, please move it. Thank you. -- 01:00, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

After a good couple of years waking up this once-near-death wiki, I'm regrettably handing back my admin privs. I've had a lot of fun, and hope I've been of some use, but I'm involved with a lot of other things nowadays, including packaging for a major linux distro in preparation for their next release in about 3 weeks time. I've not visited the site or worked on it in excess of 8 weeks, and I would rather say goodbye to it now, than watch it fall into disarray with an inactive admin.

User Beria@brwikimedia

The user has the permission to use the administrative tools, only to avoid conflicts, since it made ​​the request for use of the tool and there were dissenters to this and discussions, not to create more animosity because of she, we accept the use of the tool . But today she shows more attitudes that are not consistent with the environment. To participate in the Wikimedia Brazil is required to sign and follow the Statement of Principles, as she has not signed and she does not follow those prescribed in the Statement, she can not represent the group, so she can not have the administrative tool. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 14:45, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

  •   Comment You first made the request in the place to request admin rights? and then I guess, Beria moved it here. Beria is an admin on Meta and commons. The project you are asking for removal (if indeed you are) is not a content-project but a chapter wiki. Either way you might want to read above that stewards can not remove access without local consensus. There seems to be little here for stewards to do and should be handled locally or in an RfC or something?? someone please correct me if I'm wrong. Theo10011 14:57, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
  •   Comment The consensus is that if you do not follow the precepts of the Statement, you is not voluntary Wikimedia Brazil, so can not have administrative tools on the website. We already knew what it was like Beria, so that some had tried to prevent her administration, but generated much discussion, because this attitude of banning someone is not consistent with the Wikimedia Brazil. So we left her there. Now it moved three years, and she not changed her attitude, it's time to quit. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 15:24, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
To quote you "Now it moved three years, and she not changed her attitude, it's time to quit." If you haven't made a request for deadminship on br.wikimedia within this time, then we simply don't remove the right. Get a local consensus and come back here. I see no link to an RfdA.
