I've sent the user a slightly modified version of the templated email detailing the process to identify to the foundation as I had no idea if the user was notified of the manner in which to fulfill this requirement.

More or less, this is totally silly. He's now a candidate to admin on itwiki, seconds after the removal. He shouldn't have been desysopped imo. He had the actions to keep it, and clearly intended keeping the admin status, tho accepted more or less grudgingly to be removed and immediately stand for RfA due to some weird intepretation of the policy. This is silly and a waste of everybody's time. Snowolf How can I help? 22:08, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Anyway this is not the place to deal with this kind of matter, local policies are clear and stewards must abide by them, hopefully I plan to reach consensus to make an exception but, again, it's not a meta's matter so please avoid useless quarrels near here too. --Vituzzu (talk) 22:55, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done. I have contacted the user. I would suggest that rather than an emergency desysop, the user be blocked locally instead if the matter requires it. Emergency desysops are and should be rare and only when all other avenues are blocked. The user is in full control of their account, and is not doing damage that cannot be stopped. The block's got some time to go anyway so it has no practical effect at this time. I would suggest that if warranted, a) the user be blocked, admins under blocks are not supposed to perform any action and/or b) desysop procedures be started locally.

Sorry, but you have acted prematurely. A proper demod procedure has not been followed on this wiki, nor based on any accepted policy (there is no inactivity rule on this wiki), the persons involved were not notified per email function there was a procedure going-on. A decision by 3 persons is not a decision. People involved can hardly be described as Wikiquodians and have a history of troubles on Wikipedia. I ask a steward to reverse this action Aventicum (talk) 20:11, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
(answered as a regular user, not as a steward) I think I have to agree with this. Walter (another admin on nl.wikiquote) was just as inactive as Aventicum - even more! - and he wasn't even informed about a possible removal. To me it looks like they want to "get rid of" Aventicum there, see also this response of mine. Trijnsteltalk 20:15, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done I restored Aventicum's flag since a "not so active" sysop cannot damage a project. Please make a better and longer procedure and then (if necessary) ask for tool removal again. --Vituzzu (talk) 13:52, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, but you have not restored the bureaucrate flag. Aventicum (talk) 20:43, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
The restore should be handled by local 'crats, given there are active 'crats on the wiki. Both the admin bit and the crat bit. Snowolf How can I help? 21:07, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
That is absolute not true! I (and the other people) don't have a history of trouble on Wikipedia!! Aventicum is a promoter of copivio and nonsens and a danger for the project. How do we get rid of this moderator? Nobody knows were he or she came from. (out of the air?) There was never any election. Nobody knows him or her. He or she was there out of the bleu promoting copyvio and other nonsens. Please revision. Best regards, Sir Statler (talk) 15:22, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
"Nobody knows were he or she came from. (out of the air?) There was never any election." ~ that's not true (original request). Trijnsteltalk 19:43, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
"There was never any election." Is absolutely 100% the truth, as your link to the Original Request clearly shows. Moreover, Aventicum complaints that "[...] the persons involved were not notified per email function there was a procedure going-on.": an email could not be sent as at that time the email function for Aventicum was not active. "A decision by 3 persons is not a decision." It is if the active community consists of about 6 members and the other 3 chose not to respond. Whether Aventicum likes it or not, the active community at Wikiquote Netherlands has made it clear they no longer have any trust in Aventicum. This has become even more clear upon Aventicum's return (after an absense of more than 6 weeks, where he immediately changed the rules for deletion requests (without any form of consensus), and proposes that nobody will be allowed to do more deletion requests than 50% of the number of new articles they created. Which suddenly would make doing deletion requests a privilege (a privilege that he himself would not even have, because his contributions to the article namespace of Wikiquote Netherlands amount to exactly... zilch) rather than a community duty. Above all else: countless articles on Wikiquote Netherlands currently violate numerous copyright rules and without proper attention Wikiquote Netherlands runs the risk of ending up like Wikiquote French some time ago: blacked out. By (again!!!) halting this process of cleanup that the few really active contributors of Wikiquote Netherlands have been engaging in, Aventicum is a danger to the project. Whaledad (talk) 21:01, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
It was an "election" with one vote! And this was the solution when we were talking aboute the huge copyright violente on dutch Wikiquote. This is not a moderator but a POV pusher. And the POV is copyvio and a lot of nonsens. And I think it is insane we have moderator with you have to send a waking up call (email) to get him in action! (if you can send any) So please, how do we get rid of this moderator? Kind regards, Sir Statler (talk) 21:29, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
So the "real" reasons for removal are not simply inactivity and, so, the former request was right. You (the nl.wikiquote) community are completely free to remove Aventicum but making the request on meta you should use the right reason under clear local policies. --Vituzzu (talk) 21:54, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

I discussed this with a few other stewards and one active user of nlwikiquote. We agreed that a second discussion would be a good idea as Aventicum is now clearly aware of a possible desysop. Please first approve a policy regarding desysops and then request the removal of his admin rights. I could explain this in Dutch as well if you prefer that. Trijnsteltalk 21:57, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

Note Note: that local bureaucrats should be involved in the process as well. (If possible.) Trijnsteltalk 21:57, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
I already agreed with this idea when I couched it :D --Vituzzu (talk) 22:03, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
Even in het Nederlands Trijnstel. Het punt is dat Adventum een grote beschermer is van het werk van Mdd wat ritselt van de copivio, lappen tekst die geen citaten zijn, achterdeurtjes naar Wikipedia, enz. Nu zijn we al tientallen uren bezig de troep nauwkeurig op te ruimen. Maar nu is geloof ik het geval bij Walter neergelegd en die is een groot voorstander van onze manier van aanpak. En Walter is OK. Klopt dat zo ongeveer? Vriendelijke groet, Sir Statler (talk) 22:15, 28 May 2012‎ (UTC)
Het eerste kan kloppen (ik volg nlwikiquote niet zo), maar ik begrijp niet zo goed wat je met het laatste bedoelt m.b.t. Walter. Trijnsteltalk 22:18, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
Op een dag hadden we met Mdd slaande bonje om zijn Ency-artikelen.(Verkapte Wikipedia-artikelen in de vorm van samengeraapte l(gejate) lappen tekst, copyvoi). Adventum archiveerde toen de kantine en begon die troep te beschermen. Walter heeft toen ingegrepen en tot nu hebben we van Adventium niets meer vernomen. Behalve weer een verhaal dat er te veel wordt weggegooid. We proberen van hem af te komen maar dat lukt niet zo. En Snowolf heeft een verzoek op de OP van Walter gezet er eens naar te kijken. Sir Statler (talk) 22:26, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
Hmm, ja, dat klopt. Maar het lijkt me handiger om lange lappen tekst te mailen (dan kan ik het - indien nodig - met de andere stewards delen). Trijnsteltalk 22:28, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
OK. Sir Statler (talk) 22:30, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done as a local bureaucrat I have restored the bureaucrat status of user Aventicum@nl.wikiquote . This because the removal of the status was reverted by the steward it is only logical to restore also the bureaucrat status. If the community wishes to remove the status of user Aventicum then the need to do so in a way that is acceptabel for the steward. --Walter (talk) 08:06, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
OK. One month and an email. And announcement in De Kantine. Is that acceptabel? In my opinion absolute nonsens because we have only three active users. And Adventum is chosen with one vote (user left years ago) and not actif. Anyway, thank you for your work Walter. Sir Statler (talk) 08:34, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
Yep, that sounds good. Good luck in advance with it. Hopefully all ends well. Trijnsteltalk 19:48, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

Miscellaneous requests

User Benjism89@commons.wikimedia

Request for account creator right on Wikimedia Commons: Benjism89 regularly host Wikipedia/Commons workshops and hits the account creation limits. I endorse this request as a Wikimedia Commons sysop. Jean-Fred (talk) 13:53, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done to expire in 24 hours. Please not this only allows your account to bypass the account creation limit, not the underlaying IP, hence all accounts would have to be manually created from the Banjism89 account. Please remove this tomorrow morning or this evening if nobody comes here to say it's a two days workshop. Snowolf How can I help? 13:58, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
I believe this is a more permanent request Snowolf, "regularly hosts workshops" - coming back to request this user right every time it's required would be a bit unnecessary I think. If a Commons sysop is endorsing the request then I see no reason why it should not be permanent - I'd trust the user to not abuse it if they're regularly hosting workshops and thus need to make accounts for new members of our community. The Helpful One 15:07, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
Indeed, this is a very trivial flag, even less important than autopatrolled although not assignable locally for some reason. --Nemo 15:11, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
I don't think it's that dangerous to give this kind of status permanently. Anyway, the sysops have the same rights included in their default pack. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 15:14, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
For removing steward: It does not seem to be using the flag at all yet (checked at 15:26, 5 May 2012 (UTC)). [I endorse temporary status fwiw]. —Marco Aurelio (audiencia) 15:26, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
First, this is a hackish solution. The proper one would be, when he needs the limit upped, he, *in advance* pokes the devs on bugzilla or in -tech, and they will remove/up the limit (been done before). Second yes, everytime I grant one of these they never use it, I don't get it. Third, there's no basis in policy for us to grant a permanent account creator flag without any local discussion of it or even a request from the user himself. This should be removed, and if he wants permanent account creator, he should discuss it on commons and then we can implement it following that :) Snowolf How can I help? 18:24, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
I've been told that the userright ended up being granted after the workshop was already over hence explaining why it was never used. I would suggest that in future the matter be sent to the devs for proper handling, tho obviosly the user can choose to simply request a permanent right on commons. I have removed the userright.

Benjism89@commons.wikimedia

Hi,

Two weeks ago, Jean-Frédéric asked for an account creator right for myself on Commons, as I was hosting a Commons workshop in Nanterre (France). I'm sorry for not having asked for it before the workshop (I had forgotten about the account creation limit), and I'm sorry for not having answered to messages on this page right after the workshop (I didn't have internet access right after the workshop).

Now I'm hosting a new Commons workshop, tomorrow Saturday from 2pm to 4.30pm CEST, so I'm not making the same mistake again : I'm asking for this account creator right before the workshop :-) Thanks in advance. Benji 07:11, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. -- Mentifisto 08:53, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
A request on bugzilla asking the devs to lift temporarily the account creation limit would be the best avenue, as I think I wrote last time. But you would have to file a request for that with a bit more advance warning. Snowolf How can I help? 00:42, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
