Voter eligibility for SEEdit

I noticed that the voter eligibility criteria do not mention a situation where someone might be blocked on Meta-Wiki but otherwise meets the criteria. What would be the procedure for such an event? Vermont (talk) 13:47, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

Being blocked is a function of meta administration and actions on this wiki, so it is not particularly an issue for stewards. While eligible to vote they cannot due to their behaviour; eligibility to vote is just that, it is not a right to vote. The blocked user should have thought of this when they were undertaking whatever got them blocked. [Remembering they have the right to appeal a block on their user talk page.] I could see that through an act of generosity that an administrator could suspend a block for a short period to allow a user to vote, though that would be the generosity of the meta admin.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:57, 9 February 2020 (UTC)
There's previously a discussion about this: Talk:Stewards/Elections 2018#Donald Trung votes.--GZWDer (talk) 14:35, 6 March 2020 (UTC)


Hi all, according to the tool, there is an admin who did not make any logged actions/edits in 3 years. From Admin activity review/Local inactivity policies, it states that sysops of sv.wikibooks are removed for inactivity if there is no edits/logged actions in a year. In addition, that user is also a crat.

Notified the community about this thread as well. Minorax (talk) 11:42, 25 March 2020 (UTC)
If you want that sysop removed, you should follow that local policy. Ruslik (talk) 20:41, 25 March 2020 (UTC)
