Hi,
My temporary administrator access will expire today. I applied to continue two weeks ago & get enough support without any opposition. In addition to that, I want interface administrator access also.

Hi Stewards. I have been an admin for Chichewa Wikipedia twice. Am requesting that I get given permanent adminship for that wiki site we have one admin and he/she isn't that active. Isaac Kanguya✌ (talk) 11:30, 8 August 2021 (UTC)[]

N.Longo@lij.wiki

N.Longo has long been doing more than simply editing as he is always watching out to stop vandalism and give other users useful tips to improve our pages. Over time he has proven to be absolutely reliable to all admins of this small regional Wiki, that's why we kindly request for him a permanent adminship like the one we have. It is hard to find young people who are able to speak and write the language of Christopher Columbus, and this is what L.Longo is able to do. The election has been publicized on the Wikipedian, the community portal and the site notice. L.Longo got 12 favorable votes out of 12 active users taking part in the election.

  Support Biel talk 12:55, 15 August 2021 (UTC)[]

@Biel8729: this isn't the place for support votes, but rather a place for stewards to process requests. Thanks. SHB2000 (talk | contibs) 08:24, 16 August 2021 (UTC)[]

  Granted for 6 months to expire on 2022-02-16. It is actually very uncomfortable to +sysop a user who is blocked in a certain project due to abuse of multiple accounts. Of course, they can do good editing and behavior, but the fact that they don't get unblock review on blocked wikis doesn't look very good from a steward's point of view. No steward would be happy to take responsibility for the problems that arise from doing +sysop on them. However, it is my view that they have been sufficiently supported in the formed community, and that there is room for the community to control them. Whether or not the formed community can control the sysop is a very important factor. Because if an abuse of the sysop occurs, the community can respond immediately. Considering these factors, I have decided to grant this user a temporary flag of 6 months. I'm not sure if the community was aware of this user's block due to multiple accounts, but if the user's flag should be revoked for that reason, it's up to their community to decide for themselves. It's the same whether the community agree to an extension after 6 months. --Sotiale (talk) 10:44, 16 August 2021 (UTC)[]

No, this user was blocked on the Incubator because they were suspected to contributing in languages they don't know, because it seemed like they were adding Russian words, but the language has a little bit of russian words in it. Also, votes don't go here, they're meant to go on the discussion page. Not sure about ltwiki though. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 03:25, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[]

@Liuxinyu970226: Hello. That was my past mistakes that I made more that a year ago on ltwikipedia. I don't make it anymore. Btw, this account was not my sock on Wikipedia, just the new account so I don't really know why admins blocked this account. I didn't do any contributions there so I can't be the sock puppet. - 7elteven (talk) 04:43, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[]
Also Liuxinyu, have some grace. 7 eleven is still in school, and mistakes are expected. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 04:48, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[]
They never used and thus also never abused the other account on nawiki. Also it seems like they never abused his sysop permissions in nawiki in the past. So could you ellaborate why this is such a big problem? --Zabe (talk) 09:46, 24 July 2021 (UTC)[]
Agree. Additionally, 7elteven was a sysop for three months (and as you said, never abused them), and is one of our only few editors that know some Nauruan here. Also, 7elteven is still in school, so I expect mistakes. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 11:53, 24 July 2021 (UTC)[]
@SHB2000: If both the nominator and processor of that SRCU request @Nomad and Sotiale: agree, I don't oppose any more. Otherwise you should be one that need to "have some grace", not me.

About @Zabe:'s comments like "he never used another account/he never edited Lithuanian Wikipedia", and other comments like "they are in school", those questions are also to be answered by Sotiale or other Stewards, since they can try to confirm the "deleted contributions": Just copied from the {{CU request}}. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 03:15, 28 July 2021 (UTC)[]

Another interesting thing: the requestor edited Lithuanian Wiktionary, Wikiquote and Wikisource, of which the Mikhaliov ~ ltwiki also edited the Wikiquote one, wondering if those edits are problemic or not. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 03:26, 28 July 2021 (UTC)[]
that does seem interesting to me. SHB2000 (talk | contibs) 12:33, 5 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Out of the checkuser policy:

Note that alternative accounts are not forbidden, so long as they are not used in violation of the policies (examples of violations include double-voting, increasing the apparent support for any given position, or to evade blocks or bans).

Also the only other user active on that wiki (User:SHB2000) is supporting the request. --Zabe (talk) 14:01, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[]
The main reason is that 7elteven is probably more active than me, but had been away for exams. I on the other hand, mainly revert the well known Jurisdrew, and block accounts when necessary. I do content work there as well, but not as much as 7elteven. (most are about geographic places in Australia). Now since 7elteven hasn't edited ltwikipedia since he's blocked, I don't think that's a violation of the alt account policy. SHB2000 (talk | contibs) 14:12, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[]
@Zabe Yes, the reason why I oppose is just they violated the alternative accounts policy, the 7elteven has to explain what's the actual relations between Mikhaliov ~ ltwiki and him (or otherwise why they can be   Confirmed?), they didn't, hence a violation that support me to against this request. Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 07:25, 14 August 2021 (UTC)[]
I can't see them having violated the alternatative account policy on nawiki. --Zabe (talk) 08:41, 15 August 2021 (UTC)[]
I'm not assuming, I'm getting knowledges. Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 10:26, 15 August 2021 (UTC)[]

@7elteven: are Special:CentralAuth/Sociaken and Special:CentralAuth/Nojucka also accounts from you or not? They were marked as   Possible in the cu request. --Zabe (talk) 17:09, 15 August 2021 (UTC)[]

All in one, I suggest stewards to just reject this for now till the problems regarding 7elteven completely resolved. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 08:23, 15 August 2021 (UTC)[]
@Liuxinyu970226 At worst, maybe waiting three months? I'd wish there was a new group created, just if the rollback tool is needed. SHB2000 (talk | contibs) 05:36, 16 August 2021 (UTC)[]

  Comment Having a history of blocking due to multiple accounts is also an important factor, but in my opinion, the reason why this user was blocked from incubatorwiki is even more important. This makes it difficult to be sure that this user is doing well on the wiki without formed community, in a language project that only a few can use. If you think your block on incubatorwiki is a mistake, it is better to go through an unblock review on incubatorwiki first. Of course, other stewards may disagree with me, and may decide to +sysop for you, but I think the reason this request isn't being processed quickly is because they're not sure they can trust you. --Sotiale (talk) 11:10, 16 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Is it possible for stewards to create a new group called "patrollers" or is that not possible? SHB2000 (talk | contibs) 22:53, 16 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Well.. As Wikimedia recently experienced the Scots Wikipedia incident, we cannot trust him/her solely in your endorsement. Please understand that this is separate from trust in you. And creating a new user group on a wiki requires forming a consensus within the wiki. After the developers review it, they will change the wiki settings if appropriate. However, in my experience they may not accept creating new user groups if the community is not formed or so small. This is not ours, please contact the phabricator. --Sotiale (talk) 23:58, 16 August 2021 (UTC)[]

I am mainly requesting for adminship because I want to be able to delete useless/test pages that are frequently being created on the Wikipedia (and other technical page deletions). I am aware that the role of administrators comes with other rights/powers that can cause problems if abused or used incorrectly. However, if my account is deemed to be not old enough for this role, please feel free to withdraw my request for the time being. Thanks, --Trezoo (talk) 07:37, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Bureaucrat access

AlwynapHuw@cy.wikisource.org

Alwyn is spearheading a long term project and we're already starting to see improvement in adding and formatting text, and bringing new editors aboard. He will be training new editors, therefore Bureaucrat status is preferred (I know as I'm one on cywiki). New Admins will be needed, and Alwyn will oversee that too. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 05:54, 4 August 2021 (UTC)[]

  Not done @Llywelyn2000: Hello, we are happy to see your interest on cy.wikisource, thank you for that. However, bureaucrat is a sensitive permission and is not recommended set it on projects that don't really need. Welsh Wikisource has only one sysop, and almost no admin actions and few active editors, so there is no need for a local bureaucrat. If new administrators will be elected, you can post a request on this page and stewards will be very happy to help and set the permission. Best regards, stanglavine msg 13:58, 4 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Hi, and thanks for quick response. Could you elaborate on your statement that a Bureaucrat is not recommended set it on projects that don't really need (sic) please? Secondly, you're right: Welsh Wikisource has only one sysop - and that's because we have no Bureaucrat! Can't see why we need to go through this central process as we can look after our own affairs, thank you very much. There is only one admin, as you say, and that's because going through this central process is to difficult. We should decided ourselves who administers all cy related projects. Who understand the cy situation : you or me? Llywelyn2000 (talk) 18:07, 4 August 2021 (UTC)[]
@Llywelyn2000 It is the stewards practice to require a certain amount of voters and rights assignment at a wiki before accepting a local bureaucrat. See details in the guidelines.
This was decided on for good reasons and it greatly enhances the safety of smaller projects. Bureacurats are only important on large projects which have a lot of adminship requests to process, or estabilished local guidelines on how to use bureaucrat disrection when processing adminship/etc requests. For smaller projects, it is better if the stewards do that job.

Hi Martin, and thanks for referencing what you say on policy.
This policy of centralising each language is wrong.

  On hold Thank you for making this request. Unfortunately, the requirements set by the global CheckUser policy don't look to be met. According to that policy, if a community decides to appoint checkusers directly, the appointment must be supported by at least 25-30 editors.

Note that you can request the stewards to carry out investigations at any time: open a request at SRCU, naming accounts that are allegedly connected and providing evidence suggesting that connection.
More realistically, this request is indefinitely on hold, as considering the af.wikipedia community size, I don't think it's realistic to expect 25-30 support votes. I will likely change the status to   Not done within a couple of days – I only set it to   On hold to prevent automatic archival.

Mihail Lavrov@ruwiki

Please, remove my sysop flag. Thanks. --Mihail Lavrov (talk) 13:43, 3 August 2021 (UTC)[]

I have to add, just for stewards' information, that User:Mihail Lavrov was, by our Arbitration Committee ruling #1179, declared behaving in a severe conflict of interest, abusing administrative powers, losing the community trust, using open proxies and so on. And, by this ruling, he had to initiate his adminship confirmation in 2-week interval after the ruling was issued. In case he won't do so, the flag had to be removed automatically after two weeks (the end date is 05 August 2021). He refused to undergo confirmation, and now is asking to remove his admin flag "by his own will", possibly to pretend that he's nice and benevolent former administrator :) He didn't agree with ANY of the moments declared in Arbcom ruling. Total refuse of truth. Роман Беккер (talk) 14:44, 3 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Dear User:Mihail Lavrov, please explain: why didn't you ask our local bureaucrats to remove your admin flag? We, as a big wiki, have several bureaucrats, which are empowered to do so. Роман Беккер (talk) 15:34, 3 August 2021 (UTC)[]
  • In short, it was a little different. A lawsuit was filed against Mihail in ArbCom, in which he was accused of not existing and that he was allegedly a virtual. This unfair accusation was rejected by the Arbitration Committee, but the accusations themselves created a very toxic atmosphere, for which the colleague decided not to go through confirmation under the current conditions. Роман Беккер, as one of those who supported these accusations, is non-neutral in his assessments and presents the situation much darker than it really is. Unfortunately, Роман did not even apologize to Mihail after ArbCom ruled and rejected the unfair accusations of Роман and the group that supported the accusations. --- Eleazar (talk) 15:58, 3 August 2021 (UTC)[]
    Dear Eleazar, don't worry: there will be an appeal on #1179, and we'll see what's the evidence. For now, we can't surely know if A.Vajrapani, Morihei Tsunemori and Mihail Lavrov are three distinct persons or two. We'll see. Роман Беккер (talk) 16:18, 3 August 2021 (UTC)[]
    My dear Роман! At the present time, such accusations have been prohibited by the solution of the Arbitration Committee you are referring to. It seems to me not very optimal that you write this here, bypassing the solution of the Arbitration Committee in the Russian segment. With regard to the appeal, it is your right, I have no comments, and will not be until it is filed and a decision is made on it. --- Eleazar (talk) 16:39, 3 August 2021 (UTC)[]
First and foremost, my dearest Eleazar: this is Meta, and no one Russian ArbCom ruling applies there (at least, directly and "as is"). Second, and not least important: where did you see any "accusations of sockpuppetry" or virtuality? :) I have said that we can't know for sure, if there is meatpuppetry or sockpuppetry in Mihail Lavrov's case. But anyway this question is not relevant to the question discussed. Both such behaviors are anyway prohibited by the rules of project Wikipedia. So, be it sockpuppetry or meatpuppetry on the Mihail Lavrov's side - it is PRO-HI-BI-TED. So this question is not relevant to the question discussed. What is relevant is the severe and long-standing (for YEARS) abuse of community trust, YEARS of abuse of administrative powers, YEARS of acting in the severe conflict of interest, supporting A.Vajrapani and Morihei Tsunemori everytime, everywhere, in every situation. This, and ONLY THIS, did cause the severe losing of community trust to the Mihail Lavrov - HIS OWN BEHAVIOR, not the alleged "toxic athmosphere". Pe-ri-od.

Please remove admin because of a local discussion. Biel 12:09, 27 July 2021 (UTC)[]

I can't find the minimum length of removal process anywhere. Could you point me to respective local policies? If there is no policy, I'll let the removal running for at least a week (meaning this would be   On hold until 2021-07-29). --Martin Urbanec (talk) 13:36, 27 July 2021 (UTC)[]
@Martin Urbanec Unfortunately, I haven't yet found any local policy that sets the minimum duration for a removal request, but it looks like this request will close on July 29, 2021. Biel 17:48, 27 July 2021 (UTC)[]

@Biel8729:, keep in mind that this votation it about all votations of Wikinews. There's no clearly duration of removal process, unlike the approval process (7 days). So, in a case of absence of this specification, the general rule it's applied. Unless that the stewards has an different interpretation. --Eta Carinae (talk) 19:32, 28 July 2021 (UTC)[]

Hi @Martin Urbanec: as informed by Eta Carinae (and on the talk page itself), the time is 15 days. Edu! (talk) 19:39, 28 July 2021 (UTC)[]
The deadline for voting is 7 days, not 15. The rule is clear: O prazo limite para as votações é de sete dias. Érico (talk) 20:26, 28 July 2021 (UTC)[]

@Martin Urbanec: On Wikinotícias Lusófono, it has always been customary to close the polls after a week, but now with this request for removal, DARIO SEVERI states that the polls should last at least 15 days and threatens to block anyone who closes before this deadline! I affirm with TOTAL certainty that removal requests last a week. Biel 02:49, 29 July 2021 (UTC)[]

There was never a vote or consensus to decide 7 days. The text Erico mentions was written on the 8th of February [4] and on the 20th of February the discussion that decided that the votes should last 15 days was ended with unanimity deciding for 15 days (please see [5]), so I believe what counts is the last vote. DARIO SEVERI (talk) 06:41, 29 July 2021 (UTC)[]
@Martin Urbanec: DARIO SEVERI himself filed this removal request after 7 days because the result was unanimous, but now, he insists that his removal request can only be closed after 15 days and even threatens to block anyone who closes before that period, please close this request immediately, it is unanimous and the result will not change in the next few days.

Eldarion@trwiki

After 1 month of discussion, community consensus was reached on removing Eldarion's CheckUser rights. Thanks. --ToprakM 12:55, 19 August 2021 (UTC)[]

  • I would like to explain my opinion for this subject. Nanahuatl requested on trwiki because Nanahuatl said that Eldarion is inactive as a checkuser for about 5 years and misused rights. About 10-11 users supported to this request on the grounds that Eldarion isn't active and few users stated misused uses. Elmacenderesi and I, 2 present checkusers, have noted that Eldarion use actively rights and I said that strong evidences of misuses needs to be present. Also Eldarion was chosen with the votes of 30 users. We don't have a local policy on revoming checkuser rights on Turkish Wikipedia. Our local policy is to remove the rights of only admins. Those rules include resignation, use of sockpuppet, current AAR's 2 year inactive rule and death of admin. For your information. Regards. --Uncitoyentalk 15:12, 19 August 2021 (UTC)[]

We don't even use in those templates nor we have to. The discussion was open for a month, comments were made by many and enough number of users to have a consensus, a decision (consensus) was made, the disccussion is closed by an uninvolved admin. Anyone can nominate any user or himself/herself for CU rights, after the removal of the rights. The user hadn't even made one single comment during the process... There's a community decision, the responsibility of here is to realize it, that's all :)--Nanahuatl (talk) 03:58, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[]
The discussion was not closed; you should see the difference between summarization and closure. Closure is to discourage users from joining the discussion; however, I can see that more that 20 new messages were posted to the discussion in the same section after the summarization.--Visnelma (talk) 12:30, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Jusjih@zh.wikisource

  1. Using wrong reasons to blame me in s:zh:Wikisource:写字间#2021年5月29日Zhxy_519禁封用戶妥善否. Jusjih never listened to my explain. And when another sysop s:zh:User:Gzdavidwong stated Jusjih's mistake in this discussion, Jusjih used an impeachment as a weapon against Gzdavidwong. Of course, Jusjih is using the same threat against me now.
  2. As above, Jusjih seems to consider him or herself as the sysop of sysop in zh.wikisource. Jusjih don't listen to others and always acting big like saying "I'm sysop for 13 big wiki projects, I don't care."[6].
  3. Now Gzdavidwong has opposed Jusjih's impeachment against me, and Jusjih is threating again: "Stop in 24hrs or I will send you both to urgent removel in meta." [7] While I was just asking other sysops opinions as in their talk pages, Jusjih said "Meta won't deal with urgent request" [8]. What a double standard.

As these, Jusjih is seriously and continuing w:WP:POINTing and became a threat to all other sysops in zh.wikisource. Zhxy 519 (talk) 01:29, 22 August 2021 (UTC)[]

FYI: Jusjih is the nominator of RFDA of Zhxy 519 s:zh:Wikisource:申请成为管理员#User:Zhxy_519_2. Also admin User:Midleading disagreed with emergency removal of administrator right for Jusjih s:zh:Topic:Wecpdtyy4bkll5a0. SCP-2000 01:45, 22 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Please know that the requestor has a conflict with the requested person. They are all sysop in zh.wikisource. Now they are threatening each other, because of the ban of @user:Longway22 by the requestor and some other things about the discussion.落花有意12138 10:03, 22 August 2021 (UTC)[]

A steward needs several conditions to trigger an emergency action, which is not fully explained in this request. First of all, it must be a situation that cannot go through the normal process of your community, and it must be urgent; For example, wheel warring using admin bit (when user blocking and unblocking are repeated), blocking the community users opposite the admin during the normal process and interrupting normal process by using admin bit (deletion of RFP). Although not all of the circumstances have been accounted for yet, it is generally assumed that the policy violations presented by you are situations in which it is possible to revoke the admin's flag through the normal process. --Sotiale (talk) 11:36, 22 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Hi Sotiale, thank you for your confirmation. What we are having in Zh.wikisource are mainly 2 issues for a "normal process". 1st is we need 25 votes, which is high and also a rule imported by Jusjih; 2nd is by doing above, I can say now Jusjih gained support from potential trolls and avengers, not coming to decide right or wrong but only for impeachment. If you can, please share your opinions.--Zhxy 519 (talk) 16:31, 22 August 2021 (UTC)[]
If the policy violation you are claiming actually exists and is accepted by the community(I haven't verified that your claim is true yet, so I cannot say whether it violates local policy.), I think they can handle the desysop guideline as well. And since the admin is not currently abusing the admin bit's button, it's not urgent at this point. --Sotiale (talk) 22:00, 22 August 2021 (UTC)[]
As you may know that in many small projects like us, the policies or rules won't be as complete as the Wikipedia. Do you think the local policy can be directly cited from like zh.wikipedia?--Zhxy 519 (talk) 23:35, 22 August 2021 (UTC)[]
That seems to be something I cannot answer(that's the part you can answer as a user familiar with the local wiki, not me; Some sister projects community accept Wikipedia's policies and guidelines as de facto one, but others do not), and this emergency action request cannot be realized unless the urgency is accounted for. If your local wiki's normal process doesn't work, you can consider global RFC as a last resort, not an emergency action. I mark this request as not done. --Sotiale (talk) 00:28, 23 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Thanks so much for rejecting this hateful request. Last time in late 2020, I would like to give Zhxy_519 a chance, only to see repeated violations of conflict of interest.--Jusjih (talk) 04:02, 24 August 2021 (UTC)[]
@Zhxy 519 Please also note that zhwikisource, unlike zhwikipedia, don't require 25 votes for de-sysop, the request can finally be transferred here if enough supporters are more than oppose users, IMHO 50% is just enough. PS: a proposal to run zhwiki policies and guidelines on zhwikisource has no supporters, and 3 opppose users. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 04:25, 25 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Feel free to ignore this request, because this request did not pass the required threshold of "more than 50% of 25 valid votes" (Wikisource:管理員的離任#發起對管理員的解任投票: "至少25張有效票的50%以上"). No other sysop has supported this request except Jusjih. Jusjih initiated this request and brought it here despite the fact that it did not pass the threshold.--Roy17 (talk) 15:31, 24 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Please beware that though other sysops don't support the vote, one of the sysops, User:Hat600(达师) actually confirmed Longway22's block by Zhxy 519 was like WP:INVOLVED(避嫌).
Please also beware that INVOLVED(避嫌) is the main point of this desysop vote, which is also one of the reason of Zhxy 519's first desysop vote, in which some of the users didn't vote yes at that time. EdwardAlexanderCrowley (talk) 01:50, 25 August 2021 (UTC)[]
s:zh:Wikisource:管理員的離任#發起對管理員的解任投票 is our *guideline* (指引), not a policy, so Midleading would advise me to post here.--Jusjih (talk) 02:53, 25 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Since (1)this is a guideline, (2)zhwikisource is not a big community, (3)below 25 votes, stewards may ask us to extend some days. EdwardAlexanderCrowley (talk) 04:03, 25 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Please, do not bring to stewards anything that should be discussed on your wiki. And I have one question for processing your request; Is having 25+ votes a policy or guideline for your wiki? If such content exists, do not let stewards judge its appropriateness. All you have to do is to discuss and modify the guideline on your wiki, as if you had formed a consensus. --Sotiale (talk) 12:14, 25 August 2021 (UTC)[]

"reach 25+ votes" is a guideline in zhwikisource. However, an uninvolved admin User:Midleading (i.e. did not vote in the RFDA) modified the required threshold that only needs 50%+ support votes, since active user in zhwikisource, who may vote in RFDA, is below 25 ppl ("因为维基文库现在可能投票的活跃用户不足25人,所以本次投票只需要支持票占有效票的50%以上。") . SCP-2000 13:12, 25 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Are there any policies and guidelines on zhwikisource that allow uninvolved admins to modify required threshold? --Sotiale (talk) 13:16, 25 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Literally, this guideline allow uninvolved admins modifying the required threshold in the vote based on the level of abuse power and judging the consensus whether is formed or not. ("解任共識是否達成由非當事管理員或行政員決定,如果該共識需由投票決定,其支持解任所需票數的指標可由非當事管理員或行政員視肇事管理員濫權程度或違反事實衡量")
Furthermore, before User:Midleading modified threshold in 08/22, another admin User:Gzdavidwong had paused RFDA in 08/10 (the reason why paused), which Midleading disagreed their decision and continued the RFDA, and then declared the vote invalid in 08/18. Also, Gzdavidwong voted oppose in 08/12 and had expressed their opinion 1 2 in the RFDA related discussion about User:Longway22 had been blocked by User:Zhxy_519 before RFDA started. SCP-2000 14:58, 25 August 2021 (UTC)[]
SCP-2000's presentation is basically no problem. As SCP-2000 presents, Midleading modified the rule with the reason with no enough active users, which not only against reason: level of abuse in the guideline he or she should follow, but also against the fact that zh.wikisource got more than 100 active users. Midleading even had declared that his or her only standard is being trust or not, while the guideline asked abusing power or not. (我認為管理員被解任只需要社群不再信任其擔任管理員這一個理由。)
Please allow me to share this, to prove the Procedural injustice occuring. --Zhxy 519 (talk) 18:51, 25 August 2021 (UTC)[]
I guess now Sotiale is allowing people to say something, right? I think SCP-2000 should cite the part more longer, until “based on the level of abuse, and the general standards should be at least 50% of 25 votes”. Because until so, even an uninvolved admin’s modification should generally follow the 25 votes guideline. ("其支持解任所需票數的指標可由非當事管理員或行政員視肇事管理員濫權程度或違反事實衡量,此通過指標通常為至少25張有效票的50%以上。")--Gzdavidwong (talk) 04:56, 26 August 2021 (UTC)[]
The vote that made s:zh:WS:管理員的離任 a guideline only got 6 votes. EdwardAlexanderCrowley (talk) 13:49, 25 August 2021 (UTC)[]

  Note: This does not mean that your vote has been invalidated; it just means that I have not made any judgments on this. The reason this is marked as not done is that you are still discussing here without agreeing on what should have been discussed on the local wiki, so hold it so that you can clearly agree on the guideline. On the interpretation of the guideline, admins form a consensus and request again, otherwise amend the guideline. We hope you all come back after you have a consensus on your local wiki.
