My VRT account has been closedEdit

Hello. I received an email that I was unsubscribed from the VRT mailing list. I also cannot login to my VRT account (User:4nn1l2) because it "has been closed, most likely due to inactivity." I have been active as recent as 5 June 2021. I was also active in both mailing lists discussions and the VRT wiki itself. My SUL account still shows that I am a member of the team. I couldn't find anyone asking the removal of my access in Steward requests/Global permissions/2021-08 or Steward requests/Global permissions/2021-07 either. What has happened? Thanks 4nn1l2 (talk) 19:41, 23 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Dear 4nn1l2, this has been done on request of the WMF, related to Special:Diff/21925170. Please contact WMF legal for details. --Krd 06:38, 24 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Thanks. Just one more question: Do you require the VRT applicants to announce their country of residence when they apply to become VRT agents? 4nn1l2 (talk) 12:32, 24 August 2021 (UTC)[]
As far as I know, we don't. But it may happen that this will be required in the future. Please note that this is a sole WMF decision. I believe they have good reason, but I don't know the details. For anything further I suggest to ask them directly. --Krd 12:35, 24 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Possible inactive VRT usersEdit

There are two users, User:Tommyang and User:范, which is listed in Volunteer Response Team/Users, but not active on-wiki for several (about two) years. Are they still active in VRT? Are their NDA still valid (which may be affected by recent policy changes)?--GZWDer (talk) 15:28, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Good point. There are a few roles that are exempt the from VRT internal activity monitoring, because the related queues are in very good standing and it may be difficult for an agent to catch a ticket they can work on. But this of course leave some real inactivities undetected, so I will change this now accordingly. Thank you for the heads-up.
Of course I cannot make any public statement about NDA issues. --Krd 15:38, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Note 范 was formerly an OS but is desysoped and deoversighted in January 2017 (4 years ago). Also there are possibly much more users affected by policy change (see zh:Wikipedia:志愿者回复团队#名单, but I can not point out anyone that is surely living in Mainland China; many are mainland Chinese citizens living abroad). --GZWDer (talk) 15:56, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[]
The policy change enforcement is currently done by WMF directly. In this respect VRT admins are acting on their order only. --Krd 16:03, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[]
