request for adminship removalEdit

Dear Thogo. Guten Tag. I choosed to contact you since you are the only steward listing arabic language in your ability. :)

I'm a SysOp on Arabic Wikipedia, a months ago we have discussed a policy for removal of Adminship of inactive Admins on Ar Wikipedia whom have not performed any admin action for more than 6 months.

You can find out the policy here, and you can find a copy of the discussion for setting the policy here, (the original discussion was done in village pump), sorry all texts are in Arabic.

I am contacting you in order to put this policy in action and deadmin the inactive admins. Please advice me, since it is my knoledge about stewards' work is still very limited.

You may contact me on my discussion page on meta or Ar wikipedia.

Best regards. --Ciphers 10:21, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the fast responce. We still have one problem, the policy says that inactive sysops should be contacted at least 2 weeks before deadmin, shall we contact them locally or stewards should do this? Best--Ciphers 10:45, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Danke for the kind explanation. --Ciphers 17:06, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Klär mich mal aufEdit

Thogo änderte die Benutzerrechte für „User:Thogo“ von „Bürokraten, Flood flag, Stewards und Administratoren“ auf „Bürokraten, Stewards und Administratoren“.

Heißt das, daß Du Dir die Lizenz zum flooden entzogen hast? War mich noch gar nicht aufgefallen, daß Du ein Flooder bist. ;-) Hab Dich eher für wortkarg gehalten. --Obersachse 13:56, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Huhu. Das ist ein temporäres Botflag, das sich Metaadmins selber geben und nehmen können. Das wird verwendet, wenn wir Sachen zu tun haben, die die Recent Changes fluten würden (daher der Name). --Thogo (talk) 13:04, 25 January 2009 (UTC)


... is done. :) Regards, Dorgan 11:38, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

As soon as Cary wakes up and gets to his mails he will add you to the identification noticeboard. :) --Thogo (talk) 13:46, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Re: voting disqualificationEdit

Apologies, that was a mistake. I do know the rules, I have them pasted up in my third tab. I think you will find the others I have disqualified are well within order. This was a genuine mistake and I am following the guidelines. If you have any issues with me carrying on this work, please let me know. Thanks! Iceflow 00:36, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Help neededEdit

Double Standard? (Thogo and Shizhao)Edit

Thogo, Would you please explain why you weren't having double standard when you can think of nothing wrong in your using steward tools and oversight tools on your home wiki and then voiced strongly against Shizhao on his use of stewards tools on his home wiki? What do you mean by "Having access to a log where no local users with that user right exist cannot be a COI."? Hillgentleman 03:47, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

I already explained that. --Thogo (talk) 10:34, 4 February 2009 (UTC)


Wikipedia is to Wikipedian as Meta-Wiki is to _________?--Agricoleur 00:04, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

members of the Meta wiki community. --Thogo (talk) 00:06, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
Wikipedia an' Wikipedian is to „pretty good name“ as Meta-Wiki an' members of the Meta wiki community is to „lame name“. I suggest Wiki-Mediagician or suchlike. --Agricoleur 00:11, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
nobody cares. --Thogo (talk) 00:18, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
Meta-Wiki is to Wikipedia as yellow pages is to encyclopedia, meta-wiki-community is to wikipedia-community as post office is to hotel, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 00:26, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
boo-hoo. I like making up names as I go. --Agricoleur 00:31, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
Maybe you should join the advertisement industry then. --Thogo (talk) 10:27, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Please delete my uploaded fileEdit
