I manage my talk page with the following guidelines:

  1. Please start new topics at the bottom of the page, even if it is related to a section above. Otherwise it is difficult to find the posting.
  2. I will reply to your posts on this page to keep threading unless requested or unless it is extremely urgent.
  3. I don't check Meta as much as I used to; for urgent matters, please contact me on the English Wikipedia.

wikibreakEdit

From your userpage: Rschen7754 is taking a short wikibreak and will be back on Meta August 25

Presumably you forgot to update this. — Alexis Jazz (ping me) 01:37, 28 April 2020 (UTC)

removal of accessEdit

Dear Rschen7754,
I moved in another town and had not so much time. You asked for removal of my admin rights. My workspace for admin in Wikidata is cleaning up discussionpages of vandalism. I will continue this work, for me changed nothing. I always follow rules and live wikidata with my heart - how can I continue my work now? Regards, Conny (talk) 20:25, 5 November 2020 (UTC).

@Conny: The expectation that the Wikidata community has set is that administrators are supposed to make at least 5 admin actions every 6 months in order to retain the tools. If you feel that you are able to do this in the future, you are welcome to reapply at RFA. --Rschen7754 00:55, 6 November 2020 (UTC)

About Georgian WikipediaEdit

Dear Rschen7754, I am asking you to help us the users of Georgian Wikipedia as much as possible. I respect stewards and rules and realize that interfering with a local project is not normal. But I do not believe that the injustice that is going on in KaWiki is not visible from the outside. Any user who resists is either blocked or threatened. Unwanted discussions are closed and users are not allowed to comment. According to the rule introduced by David1010 and MIKHEIL with procedural violations, both of them should not be administrators for a long time. Many users have requested unblocking me and Zangala on Georgian Wikipedia and are still requesting it, but the discussion is either closed or deleted altogether. I can not believe that all this is legitimized by the whole Wikimedia, while users from KaWiki on the neutral field repeatedly express their opinion against the abuse of the admin rights (here, here, here, here). If direct interference is ruled out, can anyone in any way remind the Georgian Wikipedia admins that users have the right to express their opinion and that admins should not make individual decisions against the wiki community? Providing a free discussion space in Georgian Wikipedia would be the best solution in this situation. Deu. 07:51, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

As just a FYI, I'm no longer a steward so I cannot directly intervene. I am still thinking as to what can be done in this situation. --Rschen7754 07:54, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
And just a thought, please try and whenever you comment, keep it simple and short. It is hard enough to motivate stewards to do anything in this sort of situation, and walls of text don't help. --Rschen7754 07:56, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
@Deu: I have started an essay at User:Rschen7754/Help, my wiki went rogue! It is still under construction but I hope this helps. --Rschen7754 18:49, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
@Rschen7754: Many Thanks! it's really helpful. The case history is also reassuring. Deu. 05:33, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

Misuse of quotationEdit

At Requests for comment/Ombuds Commission inactivity, you wrote out the following: Recent months have seen no activity reports at all, as apparently that consumes too much time. As a supporting basis for your comment, you linked to a comment that I wrote, in which I said Summaries take quite a while to prepare, so we are waiting for a volunteer to become available. […] tackling [the case backlog] is taking up most of our time, alongside inducting the new members.

On any clear reading of my comment, I did not say that producing activity summaries would take up "too much time" in the normal course of events. However, readers will infer as much from your comment and its phrasing. Please strike and re-word your comment to make clear that summaries are only considered difficult to do right now because of the choice by past members to not participate, creating a backlog. --AGK ■ 07:45, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

I'm afraid I don't see the problem, especially since this state of affairs has gone on for 2 years and has become the new normal. --Rschen7754 19:37, 3 March 2021 (UTC)
