  •   Not done Only comments were concerns about user's intended use of tools, specifically regarding blacklists, with no meaningful response from user or supporting comments from others. Should Abshirdheere wish to reapply, it would be highly recommended that s/he respond to those concerns raised at the request for adminship. -- Avi (talk) 05:51, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

-- There was no any threat issued by my comment specifically regarding balcklists. If you have decided on this decision do as you like. Thanks. --Abshirdheere (talk) 16:03, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

As Billinghurst still thinks there may be an issue, why don't you discuss it with him. If he is willing to withdraw his concern, we probably can reinstate the temporary adminship for another 3 months or so. -- Avi (talk) 17:25, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Hi, Abshir, it seems that one of the major obstacle was you didn't reply again in so:Wikipedia:Requests_for_adminship#renewal_2. Why don't you reply it, then, and your path will be clear. Also, you might want to attract more users to that nomination page, or ask the other admins to support your renominations. Bennylin 17:36, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

CheckUser access


A few months ago I resigned my CU and sysop status due to health issues. I've been receiving medical treatment on a continued basis, and I believe my health is good enough for me to resume working as a CU. I've asked about this on Commons, and 2 of our most active Bureaucrats, Dschwen and EugeneZelenko have voiced their approval here. Thanks for your time. INeverCry 18:59, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Please file a request for checkuser rights on Wikimedia Commons and report back when it has gained the necessary support levels. Snowolf How can I help? 19:23, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
@Snowolf: I already passed a CU/R on Commons: c:Commons:Checkusers/Requests/INeverCry. At the linked c:COM:BN thread above, your fellow steward Trijnstel instructed me to post a request here. I voluntarily resigned as a CU for health reasons only a few months ago. INeverCry 19:32, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
I've asked the crats to post here once they reached a consensus. Please ask one of them if they can confirm this req. Trijnsteltalk 21:00, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Trijnstel. I've done so at COM:BN. INeverCry 22:05, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
I don't think we can take any guidance from local 'crats on the checkuser policy, it is far outside of their reach. To me, we cannot grant checkuser rights without an election. INC was duly elected, but also duly resigned, and should go thru an election according to the terms of the checkuser policy to obtain those rights. Snowolf How can I help? 23:35, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
It's been 6 months since the rights were resigned, a significant enough time frame, in my mind, to warrant asking the community to validate the right request in the usual manner. One cannot resign advanced rights and come back a significant amount of time later and expect to have them back. What that time frame ought to be, it was never established, but in this case, coupled with the short time served (so far, since being elected, INC has spent more time without the rights than with them), would suggest to me that the community would have to validate this with a new election. Snowolf How can I help? 23:49, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
This is your opinion, and I respect that, but your fellow steward Trijnstel has supported returning my CU flag. I think this should atleast be discussed at the steward's noticeboard. INeverCry 01:58, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Billinghurst also has expressed an opinion that a more clear policy statement, possibly preceded by a local community discussion, would be optimal.

Currently there is no local activity review process for bureaucrats on the Hungarian Wikipedia. Dorgan was an active editor until 2013 (2009), but since then he is mainly inactive. His last three log actions as a bureaucrat were in March 2013, but before these actions he wasn't active since 2009 (user rename log user rights log). He is still a trusted user, but we couldn't reach him in the last years. The community discussion was about removal of his bureaucrat flag. Opposition to the proposal wrote, that there is no reason to remove the flag (or a flag generally) even if the flag holder is inactive and these kinds of processes are unnecessary. Result: 10 supports, 1 opposition and 2 neutral votes. --Samat (talk) 08:10, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Our local community voted and decided to remove adminship from User:Lemonsquash@jawiktionary because of inactivity for almost 4 years.

There is no global policy on SRP (this page) about removal for inactivity. There is one at AAR, but that is a process which is conducted once per year. As you can see here, es.v was already "visited" in the current round. If the community wants inactive people to be removed independently from that, it needs to make a separate decision (a local policy, or a local "one-time-use" vote). --MF-W 21:39, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Temporary permissions (expired and rejected requests only)


Hello. This request for adminship is almost a year old, but the rights were never granted. Since not much has changed in that year, I believe the rights should be granted. PiRSquared17 (talk) 05:11, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Has the user been notified about this? They've also edited less than ten times since that RfA so I wonder if there would still be consensus to promote among the locals. Ajraddatz (talk) 05:20, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

My RfA for renewal has not been opposed for a week, and community is not that big, so I don't expect another vote. Revicomplaint? 08:38, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

@Ajraddatz: only three months after already three months? We usually double it until a year... three months, then six months etc. Trijnsteltalk 15:27, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
Looking at the other temporary request for adminship from kowikinews, 분당선M, they only had their access renewed for 3 months. Plus, with the only supporter being the other admin, I wouldn't mind giving what little community there is another chance to confirm in 3 months. If you think that it's excessive and should be raised to 6 months, I would be fine with that also. Ajraddatz (Talk) 15:40, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
Actually DangSunM voted for Neutral. One supporter, n:ko:User:콩가루 is not sysop. Revicomplaint? 15:43, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
I see. In that case it's okay of course (I didn't look at the vote page you see). ;-) Trijnsteltalk 15:55, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
This is true, Revi, sorry for not noticing that the first time around. Since 분당선M has indicated the appropriateness of this request here, and you had 3 month temporary access before, I will extend it to 6 months.   Granted for 6 months to expire on 2014-09-14. Ajraddatz (Talk) 16:01, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
@Trijnstel: The Steward handbook speaks of granting temporary rights for 6 months on wikis without a real local community to be "too long". Maybe that should be modified accordingly on that page if the steward practice has indeed changed as you discribe. Vogone talk 16:18, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

I request adminship because on local level nobody is there to grant me this status. An Admin is needed as the only local admin is defunct for many years. Kindly grant me the Adminship.-- सत्यम् मिश्र (talk) 09:22, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Please, make a local announcement about this request and post the link here. After a week, if there is consensus or no opposition to your request, you will be given sysop rights. Thank you, M/ (talk) 09:29, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Miscellaneous requests


Status:    Not done

Hi folks,

English Wikisource needs a steward to close an annual administrator confirmation discussion that has turned into a vote of confidence, and to take any consequent action.

We have three local 'crats, but I have recused from closing because I opposed last year, another has voted in this discussion, and the third cannot be reached at this time. Thus we have no 'crat who is in a position to close this. I did consider asking an uninvolved local non-functionary to close, but decided it was best in this case to pass it up to you guys.


Thanks, Hesperian 01:24, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

If I read your policy correctly, this is a purely numerical decision (50%+1 of voters is needed for removal, and the result is 4:8:2, 8/14~57%). In my opinion, it doesn't require anyone to close in the sense of determining a result, mathematics does that. Then you could request removal here, being a bureaucrat. --MF-W 10:57, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes, it is a vote, in the strict numerical sense of the word. I still feel I ought to recuse, but if the message here is that it needs to be closed locally before stewards will act, then I guess I'll have to step up. Hesperian 12:06, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Local close complete. This request moved to section above. Hesperian 05:15, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
