The following request for comments is closed. Excluding my own comment and considering the median of suggestions[1], it turns out there is consensus for removing the global rollback flag from all accounts which have vanished for more than 24 months, i.e. 2 years. --Vogone (talk) 21:45, 24 April 2016 (UTC)


Problem[edit]

Now to obtain the global rollback flag requirements become more stringent, and many have received the flag a few years ago, when everything was simpler.

There are participants who for years did not do the edits, maybe they left the project, and may be a worse option.--6AND5 (talk) 14:04, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Suggested solution[edit]

Offer, those participants who were not active in all the wikiprojects more than 2 years or 3 years to remove the global flag.--6AND5 (talk) 14:04, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

I agree with the proposal and think that 2 years of total inactivity (no logged edits or other actions anywhere) is reasonable for GR flag removal. --Vogone (talk) 17:44, 16 February 2016 (UTC)
As someone that have proposed to modify the global rollback policy so that inactive users loose the flag, I totally support the idea that inactive users loose the flag if they're totally inactive on our projects for 2 years. It is not fair that we demand candidates to meet a series of requirements to get access to the tool, such as high activity, and not a certain level of compromise or commitment to keep it. So while this is not a dangerous tool, it is a tool, and my personal views on tools is that either they're used or should be removed. Regards, —MarcoAurelio 23:42, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

    @Rschen7754: Perhaps you might want to add what you are supporting here. The proposed "more than 2 years or 3 years" seems a bit too vague for a policy to me. --Vogone (talk) 20:09, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
    I support anything >= 2 years. --Rschen7754 20:28, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
