Requests for comment/Include interface administrators for AAREdit

Are we at a point where this can be closed (presumably before AAR2019)? --Rschen7754 22:35, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

While it is a procedural comment, this proposal has not been widely advertised. With the impact of such changes, we need to be better and directly overt with promoting/advertising RFC that have global impacts.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:01, 4 January 2020 (UTC)
Actually, I have already prepared a review of inactive users for this year's edition -> Admin activity review/2019/Data. But as interface administrators were introduced in 2018, I suppose the review for holders of advanced rights does not apply to them this year because it has not been two years since the permissions were granted.

Please keep s:fr:Utilisateur:Phe's admin's rightsEdit


after discussing the subject on fr.wikisource, following this message on our Scriptorium from User:Linedwell, the community of fr-wikisource has a consensus for keeping User:Phe's admins rights active.

Please, do not remove those rights. Thanks ! --Hsarrazin (talk) 12:29, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

IMHO by the lecture of the policy, Phe should at least be posting something (4.2.- "[t]he notified users should then post information to the local community about the notice of maximum inactivity they received from the stewards in order to discuss the matter", "the messaged user could provide evidence to the stewards about the local community's decision"). Point 4.3 allows us, however, to evaluate on a case-by-case basis. I do not hold strong opinions in this case though but this has been subject of discussion in the past. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:50, 13 January 2020 (UTC)
Or locals could simply set up their own policy to avoid it? — regards, Revi 13:44, 13 January 2020 (UTC)
How do we set up our own policy, and control tools, please ? --Hsarrazin (talk) 08:44, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
@Hsarrazin: The policy AAR was set so that advanced rights holders were not "set and forget". So a community needs to come up with a reasonable policy and approach to manage advanced rights holders who do not edit and interact with a community for 2 years (considered the maximum allowed.) What a local policy entails was left to local communities as stewardry was more concerned with having a good outcome rather than describe the input. The policy gives some examples of existing processes, and the list supplementary to the policy should link to each community's prescribed policy.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:44, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

Please keep bat-smg:Nauduotuos:Zordsdavini's admin's and bureaucrat's rightsEdit

Hi, we had small discussion in freed about my permissions on Samogitian wikipedia. Two main admins have been proposed to leave permission and nobody against. Zordsdavini (talk) 21:16, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

@Zordsdavini Hello. Thanks for the reply. We've noted this so your permissions ain't removed after this inactivity check. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:47, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
Thank you :) Zordsdavini (talk) 06:25, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

Please keep Willtron's admin and bureaucrat rights in Aragonese WiktionaryEdit

Hello, after a voting (see here) our community has decided (3-0) that I should keep the permisions. Best regards --Willtron (talk) 16:37, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

Done. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 20:03, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

mrwitionary missed from AAR?Edit

According to this tool, the 2 sysops of mrwitionary did not make any logged actions / edits in the past 2 years, however, they are missed from the AAR data. I don't see any local inactivity policy that is more stringent than global. Is this an omission on the bot? Regards,--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:07, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

See Admin activity review/Local inactivity policies. I don't like their inactivity policy but the way AAR is currently written not much we can do about it. --Rschen7754 19:35, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
