Hi, @Rschen7754: You may recall our discussion at la:Disputatio Usoris:Andrew Dalby#Inactivity policy. It's time for me to withdraw sysop rights from 5 long-silent sysops. I find I can't, although I'm a steward (the only one now active). I go to the special page "Usorum potestates" (same as English "User groups management"). For each of the magistratus the relevant box is ticked, but in grey and in the left column, meaning that I can't alter it.

Perhaps I have to go somewhere else to do this, but if so, I don't know where. Sorry to trouble you. Andrew Dalby (talk) 14:04, 28 January 2023 (UTC)

@Andrew Dalby: You can file a request at SRP so that a steward can take care of it. Generally bureaucrats cannot remove admin rights for security purposes and to ensure additional review (i.e. making sure policy was followed) when admins are removed. --Rschen7754 19:52, 28 January 2023 (UTC)
Great. I'll do that tomorrow. Andrew Dalby (talk) 22:04, 28 January 2023 (UTC)


Hello. Sorry to bother you again. I was wondering if you could check Bot policy/Implementation#Notification after content wiki creation and see if there's anything that needs to be added/removed/reworded? If so, feel free to just DIY and thank you in advance for your time. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 16:30, 29 January 2023 (UTC)

That looks good, thanks for setting up the new message. --Rschen7754 17:34, 29 January 2023 (UTC)
