Filtering user account creations by following long-term abusers

Hi everyoune! Can also someone of admins please resolve with these main problems following LTAs creating abusive accounts? That example of these keys for user accounts are F'uerdai, Cruisir, WhenDatHotlineBling or etc.. That they are blocked/locked from preferring these actions, also Special:AbuseFilter is the way to take these options. 2A02:2F01:620F:3D00:4958:F5F3:239A:D51B 16:40, 13 January 2019 (UTC)[]

  Comment Thanks for your sage though unhelpful advice. You must be new around here. Please don't bother with gratuitous advice or suggestions.  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:47, 13 January 2019 (UTC)[]
  • Until the stewards haven't own ability, they must advice that criteria options about LTAs: creating these of abusive or offensive usernames, also for impersonation or trolling is underway, but just also very worst doubtful facts ever. This maybe adjust the successive the effort to focus on those who swear, creates horrible accounts, or that it appeals to contributors who want to help whether they are from Wiki projects, or that some work here. 2A02:2F01:620F:3D00:4958:F5F3:239A:D51B 03:34, 14 January 2019 (UTC)[]
    With all due respect, we (the stewards, meta administrators and global sysops) know our roles, the tools available to us, and have the experience in undertaking the tasks, and I think that we know them better than you. I understand that this is a well-meant request, it is, however, ill-informed, patronising, and unhelpful.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:43, 14 January 2019 (UTC)[]

Admin activity review policy for simplewikt

Per the Admin activity review/Local inactivity policies page, this a note that I've added the relevant policy for simplewikt. Thank you, Hiàn (talk) 21:18, 26 January 2019 (UTC)[]

Thank you. SimpleWikt was usually exempted because their 'crats can desysop. But in any case if there's a local policy then it's fully exempted as per the current AAR wording indeed. Thanks for letting us know. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 22:23, 26 January 2019 (UTC)[]

Requesting retention of admin and/or 'crat rights on gv.wikipedia and ga.wiktionary

Hi Stewards,

Just requesting retention of my rights on the above two wikis. Basically, there's nobody else over there, and I'm still semi-active. Community notices here and here, the latter being posted in late 2018 with no community feedback - Alison 19:22, 31 January 2019 (UTC)[]

Hi Alison, so long as you've made an edit or logged action within the last two years, your permissions will be retained. Replying to the notice is sufficient for that. Regards, – Ajraddatz (talk) 19:26, 31 January 2019 (UTC)[]
