For bureaucrats' attention

We should have started the inactivity session 24 days ago. I've started the October 2010 inactivity removal and created a provisional list of administrators that may fall under the removal criteria in this page. Please do review the stats page and the list I've created and feel free to add/remove those missing/incorrectly added.

Please note that admins elected less than 6 months ago, and temporary administrators do not follow this process acc. previous runs.

I hope that we could start the session on Monday 25 October 2010 so your help is appreciated.

Thank you,

Inactivity session has started. It will end in November, 1 2010. --dferg ☎ talk 14:39, 25 October 2010 (UTC)


Inactivity session has ended. I request another bureaucrat to have a look, close it and take care of those users that did not signed. Regards, --dferg ☎ talk 17:43, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

What is the standard procedure for those with both 'crat and admin rights (ie: Lar)? Tiptoety talk 23:34, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
They get both removed. All admins who behave automatically get crat if they request it, so we can take it away just as easily due to inactivity. Cbrown1023 talk 23:39, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. And Yes check.svg Done. Tiptoety talk 23:49, 2 November 2010 (UTC)


Hi. I would like to know how to request for Autopatroller flag on Meta? I am an Autopatroller on and Commons. I would like to be flagged as one to reduce creation of unnecessary review tasks. Rehman 14:30, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

You can request it by any sysop on his talkpage, but first we would like to see some more contributions and there will be no problem. --WizardOfOz talk 16:25, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
I understand. Thank you for your reply. Kind regards. Rehman 04:20, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Request to unprotect the Bengali version of meta home page

According to new design, I would like to update the Bengali version of meta home page. Please unprotect that page for at least a week. That page has no vandalising record, so I think unprotection won't be a problem. Thanks for you understanding. — Tanvir • 10:12, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

I've stepped it down to semi-protection. Please update the page and let us know when you are done, so we can re-protect the page. Thanks, -Barras 10:22, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, will inform you soon, I hope. — Tanvir • 11:08, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
On Talk:Main_Page#Main_pages there seems to be a consensus on unprotecting all main pages. --Nemo 11:46, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
Done with updating. — Tanvir • 17:04, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
Protected again. THX --WizardOfOz talk 18:05, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
