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 April 2017

Removal criteria[edit]

  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.
