  • Kindly refer my sysops request above on the same page. In this regard I would also like to remind that I was elected Bureaucrat on 16 June, 2010 & have been on the post with responsibility till then. This election was with consensus & can be seen on this Archive page. So I request you to please restore the Bureaucrat position rights for me, so that hi.wikipedia also has its one local Bureaucrat & everybody or anybody has no need to call up the stewards for the matters, that can be resolved there and then. --Ashish BhatnagarPlume pen w.giftalk 15:16, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
(Copied from above) According to RfC related to user-rights on Hindi Wikipedia, no one can be assigned bureaucrat privilege for a year on Hindi Wikipedia and all assignments of admin flags will be considered by stewards only.--Bill william compton (talk) 14:08, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

I would agree with Vituzzi that we probably should just remove the two existing crats. MBisanz talk 23:35, 12 November 2012 (UTC)
You'd probably need to propose that locally. I don't think policy allows removal of unused bureaucrat rights without community approval. Who's Vituzzi? :) Jafeluv (talk) 13:07, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
I have reminded both inactive bureaucrats if they are still interested in being bureaucrats. If no response, both of them will be locally proposed for de-flagging. Meanwhile, I do not consider this wiki big enough to have its own bureaucrat yet.--Jusjih (talk) 09:35, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done 2 active admins means no need for 'crats and far too small of a community to appoint one. If the current crats are inactive, stewards are empowered to act as local 'crats as they do on wikis without 'crats; Vituzzi = User:Vituzzu with a typo; local communities can draft policy to have inactive 'crats removed, it's their wiki and up to them.

Are you certain? Perhaps you would rather just take an extended wiki-break? -- Avi (talk) 05:16, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
But this wiki-break would have to be longer then a year. And according to pl.wikipedia rules a sysop inactive for over a year looses his or her status anyway. Marcgal (talk) 10:16, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done per your request. There are no global blocks at this time, only global locks, which are not suitable to this and so that part of the request is declined. Best of luck in your wikibreak and thank you for your contributions. Snowolf How can I help? 10:20, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

ThomasBot@wikisource

On wikisource (multilingual) four votes is substantial; we did take a while to process this but there were no objections; furthermore ThomasBot is an admin bot of a retired user (ThomasV may still be an active or occasional dev but has not edited on any project in over a year; even longer for his bot) so the existence of an admin bot is a security risk. --Doug.(talk contribs) 16:29, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

I don't see any notification to the user, which seem like a sensible thing to do. Snowolf How can I help? 16:44, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
I understand the principle but that hasn't been historically required on mul.ws and this is a bot of a retired user. ThomasV has no valid arguments to keep bot status even if he cared. ThomasV himself was separately nominated and did not reply with regard to his own account! oldwikisource:User_talk:ThomasV#Sysop. To expect him to respond regarding his bot is a bit overly hopeful. :-\ --Doug.(talk contribs) 16:50, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
I see a consensus on the talkpage, tho dating from some time ago, that notification should be required: oldwikisource:Wikisource_talk:Administrators#Consider_removing_inactive_administrators_after_long_time.2C_such_as_six_months. Snowolf How can I help? 19:13, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
OK, that was discussed, there is no policy and that wasn't a discussion about admin bots but about admins, they are not the same. This is a bot, it can't be notified except by notifying ThomasV who did not respond to a notification about his own desysop and hasn't edited on any wiki in over a year; the bot hasn't edited in over two years. AND admin bots are special, they are rare and high risk and we don't want this one. What exactly is the point to notifying ThomasV that we want to desysop his bot other than a principle of courtesy? It's unnecessary process.--Doug.(talk contribs) 19:46, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
Done; to me, a simple notification to the master account suffices. The local community seems to agree that they should have their admin bit stripped off. They didn't even respond to the first notification anyways. Elfix 20:13, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

Maximillion Pegasus@wikisource

On wikisource (multilingual) historically two unopposed votes is sufficient to desyop after a period of somewhere between 30 days and six months (see, oldwikisource:Wikisource_talk:Administrators).

I have had this idea but the community asked me to nominate all the inactive admins. If they are still interested in retaining this flag then it would be much better if they make an local announcement.--Bill william compton (talk) 00:13, 12 November 2012 (UTC)
Well, 2011. He obviously simply forgot to remove it after the task was done. Btw., doesn't he have sysoprights with his staff account anyway? Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 00:15, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

Why on earth were the rights removed? Snowolf How can I help? 13:02, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
To expand on that, the users didn't voice any opposition at all on mrwikisource, vaguely referred to "we discussed this on mrwiki". This is clearly not a valid complaint, and to remove +sysop from a user based on some vague complaints about their activity on a different wiki is ridicolous. I ask that the rights be reinstated until such time as the complaints have some substance. Snowolf How can I help? 13:04, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
I prefer not to continue with adding and removing admin rights, so I'd like to do it well now. What do you advice me? Trijnsteltalk 20:11, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
Seriously, if you take a closer look to the two users who complained, you will see that they are likely to be socks of the troll group attacking sysops at mrwiki. Just read again the messages on Trijnstel's user talk page, where शंतनू is qualified of most unwanted person or a lier (he has given wrong information to you). Plus this is totally unfounded : what's the wrong informations he has given to Trijnstel ? That's simply attacking without any proof ! That's why, when Trijnstel asked him to provide some evidence of what he's saying, no answer came. Then, an other one appears, saying that the sysop is not experienced enough. Easy to say when you don't even have an account on the concerned project... All this makes me think that this user belongs to the trolls attacking sysops at mrwiki. That's not because of such an unfounded attack that we should remove the sysop rights of a user. Did somebody find any abuse when checking the sysop operations this user has done ? -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:08, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
I'm re-granting the user the +sysop flag. I stand by my assessment that unfounded allegations without any evidence are not basis for removal of +sysop, despite what Jusjih said above. They might be grounds for discussion on the local wiki tho. The user has never ever received a complaint on his talk page, as such any allegations are baseless if they do not even engage the user in discussions.

Doug@wikisource

This is a request for importer rights. The discussion has been up quite a while without any comment for several months (you'll note the last post to that page was in June and before that me in April; mainly because there are not that many regular participants. We need this ability for two reasons, 1) as stated there is a bug, though it is being fixed at this time supposedly, 2) mul has a lot of interwiki work and sometimes large amounts of works (or more frequently templates) need to be imported.
