Requests and proposals Meta administrators (removal) Archive
This page concerns the process by which Meta administrators are removed, as mandated by prescribed criteria. It was created in response to discussion at Meta talk:Administrators/confirm—see here—and replaces the former administrator confirmation process.

The next formal administrator review takes place on: 1 October 2019

Removal criteriaEdit

  1. Users who have made fewer than ten edits in the six months immediately prior to the designated removal date (April 1 or October 1) are desysopped without notice.
  2. Users who have made more than ten edits but fewer than ten actions requiring admin privileges (remember this includes edits to protected pages etc.) in the same period are given a week to indicate they would like to retain their access. Users in this category are to be notified on the first day, and adminship is removed without notice on the seventh day if there is no response.

Signature: I could be editing articles, but instead I'm here signing my name :P Kaldari (talk) 23:23, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
You know, it's very easy not to be listed here: making at least 10 edits and 10 admin actions each six months. Not a very hard criteria, ain't it? It is not that we're short of work and backlogs on Meta to achieve that. Of course every person have different interests and that's absolutely okay, but the community expects administrators to use the tools they were given, and if such interest decreases or disapears, I'd find myself in the moral obligation to tender my resignation. Your last logged action dates back 2017. How can you be complaining or dare to be sarcastic here when many of us are overwhelmed by the ammount of job we've got to do every day? I find the above rather insulting. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 17:50, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

  Comment this administrator is active in abusefilters, so maybe we need to adjust the inactivity measures.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:41, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
