Stewards will take a closer look if your claim is actually true. Wikicology (talk) 12:09, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Not really clear - I see two supports and one oppose by users with additional edits to ab.wiki. It does appear as though there has been canvassing, though, but there is little we can do: Local community approval is indispensable for us granting rights. Savhñ 23:18, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for informing me about stuff I was involved in. It is precisely because the wiki was only created in this month that I am wondering. Usually sysops on a new wiki are temporary for the first time (cf. gomwiki requests which are on this page at the moment as well); especially if several participants in the request do not even have a local userpage. --MF-W 23:33, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Whaledad@nl.wikiquote

In my opinion, Whaledad's administration rights on nl-wikiquote should be removed as he has abused them several times and in multiple ways. The main thing is that he has thrown away some good pages without others who are or used to be active on nl-wikiquote being seriously involved in this issue (see my last remark on this about the deleted pages: nl:q:Wikiquote:De kantine#Verzoek om herplaatsing. More discussion about this can be found in particular on nl:q:Wikiquote:Te verwijderen pagina's and the corresponding talk page, and nl:q:Wikiquote:Te verwijderen pagina's/Aangehouden).

On nl-wikiquote, Whaledad is also creating his own rules regarding specific users including me. On that basis he gave me about 15, in my own opinion completely undeserved, blocks ([6]).

Moreover, and this is perhaps even more serious, he recently allowed user:Graaf Statler, who has been globally locked, to keep on editing on nl-wikiquote with a sockpuppet by unblocking Statler's IP. Concerning the aforementioned point, my main objection is that the sockpuppet kept on nominating pages for deletion in a more or less random way, not to mention the fact that the sokpuppet's editing is of course unpermitted as such as long as Graaf Statler himself has not made a succesful request here on MetaWiki to undo the global lock of his main account. It is Whaledad who apparently made this block evasion by Graaf Statler possible, given this [7] (translation: Whaledad and I have made some very strict agreements).

So in my view he (Whaledad) is also damaging Wikiquote in some way, abusing at the same time his administration rights to lock/unlock users at random, and, which is probably the most important aspect, appealing against the decision made some months ago here on MetaWiki to lock Graaf Statler undefinitely on all WMF projects (see here). Please take that into consideration in particular, as well as the fact that Whaledad was elected about 4 years ago as an administrator on nl-wikiquote while there were actually hardly any active users. De Wikischim (talk) 13:56, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

My observations as an outsider who has followed the unfolding drama at nl-wikiquote for quite some time. While I think this isn't a case that warrants an emergency desysop (the behaviour is structural and not something that occured overnight) this has turned into a dilemma which can no longer be resolved with the local resources this community has. Whaledad has misused his admin rights on a routine basis by blocking while he clearly is involved. While it is impossible to avoid some involvement at a small wiki, applying this many blocks against the same user often based on a sanction he applied without gathering community consensus is bad practise. Especially when none of the other two local admins where openly consulted and none of them were asked to step in as neutral, at least less involved parties evaluating the situation. Plus local policy doesn't allow admins to apply such sanctions.
Facilitating the socking of a user blocked indef on two different occasions is also bad practise. This way Whaledad is facilitating the violation of local policy. A policy he created without gathering community consensus nonetheless. His attitude has resulted in the harassment of several editors including De Wikischim. (Latest example is this tasteless grave dancing.)
Perhaps the steward who is going to close this one can De Wikischim some pointers on how to resolve this situation if he/she concludes that this case doesn’t warrant an emergency desysop? I hope you are hanging in there De Wikischim. I can't imagine how it feels like to be in the situation you are in now. Natuur12 (talk) 13:57, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Additional remark: on nl-wikiquote, Whaledad just overruled the decision made this morning to block Opruimer 1. See the recent changes on Wikiquote. I believe this is an even more evident example of abuse of his sysop rights. De Wikischim (talk) 15:41, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Is there a process for desysop requests on nlwikiquote? What is the opinion of the other sysops about this? E.g. User:Romaine --MF-W 15:44, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
user:Riki is also a sysop on nl-Wikiquote, so perhaps he can give his view on this. I for my part will make no further objections if he wants Whaledad to remain as an administrator, though the decision made here could, of course, be after all to desysop Whaledad. De Wikischim (talk) 15:48, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg: Their local desysop-procedure is described here. Any user with more than 100 edits and an account registered more than three months ago can start a desysop vote/pol. (Only users with more than 100 edits and an account registered more than three months ago may vote). Someone requires 75% support in order to maintain the admin-status. There are some other conditions as well but those are merely procedural details. Natuur12 (talk) 16:08, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
Given the fact that there are so extremely few users active on nl-wikiquote, I thought this way would likely be more efficient. Moreover, this is something which concerns also a matter with regards to this specific project, MetaWiki (Statler's block/global lock). De Wikischim (talk) 16:16, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
  • I'm marking this as "not done", strictly because this is not a case for emergency desysopping. However, these are serious concerns and they should be addressed. I would recommend a local vote of confidence according to local procedures if needed, but also a formal proposal to globally ban Graaf to avoid these issues in the future. I can help coordinate the latter. -- Ajraddatz (talk) 18:40, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Update. Can someone please reconsider this request, as there are some apparently serious new cases of abuse. Whaledad just put back this vandalism done by Graaf Statler which had already been removed by both me (while I was not logged in) and a little earlier by user:Vituzzu. Besides, Whaledad just gave me an indefinite block. Perhaps a steward here could consider if this block of my account on nl-Wikiquote should rather be made undone (I suppose you are able to do so here)? (Anyway, whatever will happen next, I for my part will no longer contribute to nl-wikiquote as long as Whaledad remains a sysop on it). De Wikischim (talk) 15:40, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Comments from Whaledad
  • De Wikischim:
  • thanks for filing (and refiling) this case without notifying me
  • yes you have a long block log on WQ; these blocks are primarily giving for you rolling back contributions of others (including me as mod) even after numerous warnings
  • this roll back behavior and blocks associated with that is nothing new and not limited to WQ; it also happened to you numerous times on NL-WP: [8]
  • you also have had several AC cases filed against you (two of them currently being considered) - one of these has a currently active ruling prohibiting you from rolling back contributions by others: [9]
  • the block that led you to file this de-sysop was given for you again rolling back my mod actions on the removal-proposals page: [10]
  • today you decided very consciously to continue to undo contributions of others from your IP in spite of your account block: [11] for which I have given you indefinite blocks on both your account and your IP address
  • What you did here was removing (I 'd rather say: mutilating) my comments from the deletion page (for those who do not understand Dutch: the main thing I wrote there was that it is doubtful whether nominations for deletion which are done by a sockpuppet of an indefinitely blocked user can be considered valid). This actually means that you are the one who started undoing somebody else's edits, which means you have blocked me for an editwar which you had actually started yourself. I definitely do not accept this. From a more general point of view, you're just discriminating specific users on Wikiquote, especially me, and imposing your own policy. The only reason you can go ahead with these practices is that nobody else wants to get involved in this matter (which has been going on now for at least half a year). De Wikischim (talk) 18:39, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
  • about this; [...] today you decided very consciously to continue to undo contributions of others from your IP; Whaledad, you're simply LYING here. What I did here was putting this earlier version of Vituzzu back, after which it was YOU who undid Vituzzu's decision to remove Statler's harassing remark from user:Robotjes talk page (while Vituzzu is a steward here) by putting the same remark, which by then had already been removed twice, back one more time. You should be very ashamed to go against so many conventions at the same time, being a sysop on Wikiquote. De Wikischim (talk) 19:09, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Natuur12
  • Presenting yourself here as an "outsider" is very disingenuous, hypocritical and basically false
  • You are heavily involved in this case by the fact that YOU were the one that gave Graaf Statler the indefinite block on NL-WP that helped get him the indefinite global ban
  • That block however was given in a way that violated several rules and was deemed invalid (no mod rights to give that block under those circumstances) by the NL-AC: Graaf Statler was already blocked for a month on NL-WP when you block him indefinitely; you gave him the indefinitely block for contributions on other WM projects, for which he was already blocked on those projects ([12])
  • You were also heavily involved in the (failed) effort to remove the NL-AC and in your communication around that heavily focused on me and on the Graaf Statler case: https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Stemlokaal/Afzetting_Arbcom_2016
Whaledad (talk) 16:24, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Excuse me? The fact that I am involved with the Graaf Statler case is well known. (I placed one of the blocks, I requested a lock.) However, the wikiquote-mess I have little to do with. Don't try to blame me for your sins. Graaf Statler is locked, not banned and he is locally blocked at nl.wikiquote. Regarding the removal of the entire Dutch Arbcom. All I did was casting a vote followed by a clear motivation in a de-arb procedure started by another user. Don't try to pin that on me. And I am not going to discuss a block I placed at nl-wiki with one of the Arbs who might have worked on that specific case. That could damage the position of the Dutch Arbcom as a whole and I don't want that. Though I have to admit that I am a bit shocked that you still get the block reason wrong. (1, 2.) Your personal feelings are clouding your judgement. This is not the Whaledad I know and worked with. Please, show that you are better than this and fix the situation. Natuur12 (talk) 17:06, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Natuur12, learn to read: I protested the fact that you falsely presented yourself here as an "outsider", while you are heavily involved in everything that has to do with Graaf Statler. You are absolutely allowed to post your opinions here and anywhere else, but don't do it under the false pretense that you're an outsider. Whaledad (talk) 17:24, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Outsider as in not part of the nl.wikiquote community obviously. Natuur12 (talk) 19:55, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
@Whaledad: Natuur12 wrote this somewhere above: [...] Whaledad has misused his admin rights on a routine basis by blocking while he clearly is involved. Have at least the guts to address that point, instead of continually devising diversionary tactics like you're doing now. Statler's block on NL-WP given to him by Natuur12 has no connection with the issue discussed on this page. Still apart from the direct misuse of your admin rights which Natuur12 has mentioned, it is about Statler's behaviour and his continual block evasion by means of sockpuppets on nl-wikiquote and especially the way you, being a sysop on that wiki, have tolerated all that stuff, even to the extent that you've overruled a steward's decision. De Wikischim (talk) 21:16, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Comment Comment - This seem like a long-term issue that needs to be addressed once and for all. I am not sure if a RFC is necessary. Any suggestion? Wikicology (talk) 13:28, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

See this new discussion (in Dutch) on Wikiquote: nl:q:Overleg gebruiker:Whaledad#De-blokkades. De Wikischim (talk) 07:19, 10 August 2016 (UTC)
I have undone the archivation of this. It would be better if still another steward had a closer look at this request and consider whether it should be honoured after all. Besides, the discussions were still going on, especially between Whaledad and Natuur12. De Wikischim (talk) 11:18, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
The current status of this is not done. Am I allowed to change this back to on hold myself, or would it be necessary to submit a completely new request? De Wikischim (talk) 11:33, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

User IKhitron@he.wikipedia

Hi. Today hewiki decided that only user that was at least 9 months in wikipedia can be a sysop. Because I am the only one that was granted less than this, after only 5 months in wikipedia, I do not want to remain a sysop just because the discussion was before this decision. Please remove my rights so I could ask the community again to be a sysop, for the rest year and 9 months. Thank you. IKhitron (talk) 22:27, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

Hello IKhitron. While I appreciate your decision, I don't think it is really necessary step unless the (new) rules require that (= are they retroactive?). Why don't you simply start a confirmation if you feel necessity to verify your status, which would save the - most likely - mingling with rights there and back? Just a suggestion...
Danny B. 23:06, 14 August 2016 (UTC)
Hi Danny B. Thank you for your words. No, they don't. It's just a matter of conscience. If I am a sysop and expect from the others be "good guys", I can't expect less from myself. And about waiting - no, I do not want the discussion will run when I am sysop, it's not fair. Sorry for your extra work. IKhitron (talk) 23:18, 14 August 2016 (UTC)
No need to excuse. And definitely not to me, since I won't have any work with that. I just threw in my feeling of its being a bit exaggerated to do it this way, but if you insist on it, just have it...

This request for rights removal is valid. We can't force people to have rights if they don't want to. I understand this is an unusual request though, and we've given some extra thinking time. @IKhitron: do you still want us to action this request or do you wish to withdraw it? It seems that you're getting quite a large support for you to remain? Thank you, —MarcoAurelio 20:13, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
Actually, I do not know what to answer. I thought the rights will be removed automatically 24 hours after the request, and I behave as I have not them from the moment that "on hold" is "on hold". IKhitron (talk) 12:25, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
In theory we do remove the rights after 24 hours more or less, but since this generated some discussion, and the discussion yona B. linked seems to be in favor of you + If you're not sure now, I'll take the safest approach and not perform this request.

Due to local policy, has not started a re-election process within 30 days as requested by a quorum of 25 members of the community on 28th July 2016, dewiki-bureaucrats cannot remove sysop rights.
Some background information: Beginning of July I have reactivated a four year old evaluation of the activity level of admins in dewiki. Its outcome has revealed around 25 admins being basically inactive throughout the last year. In the wake of publishing those figures the number of requests for a re-election has increased significantly. According to the rule set of dewiki an admin has to start a re-election process, if 25 members of the community in one month (or 50 in six months) are requesting for it. If an admin is not meeting this request within 30 days, the loss of sysop rights is provided in the rule set.
All those requests are carried by a sufficient number of community members, in full accordance with the rule set of dewiki community and documented at de:Wikipedia:Adminwiederwahl/Kurzstatistik. For three admins the period of 30 days (= "Laufende Frist") has ended yesterday or the day before yesterday. For a further 16 this will happen within the next four weeks. -- Dschungelfan (talk) 22:01, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

Interesting, so admin rights get revoked automatically after 30 days if the admin decided not to seek re-election, however he is also forbidden to seek re-election if he is not eligible to vote?

For your information, this is not Dschungelfan's private business. Due to community policy on dewiki, every user is entitled to ask for the removal of sysop rights if the required conditions are met. This is not a reason to block user:Dschungelfan on Meta. I think it is unfair to raise this claim as you insinuate he is behaving in an irregular way which is not true. It is up to the stewards to check whether a request is justified or not.--Aschmidt (talk) 00:35, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
if the required conditions are met: Well, from what I can see, there are not conditions when to ask for removal of sysop rights. People can arbitrarily, i.e. without any reasoning, ask for removal. whenever they feels so might be a better subordinate clause. Nevertheless, the lack of criteria should not invalidate votes. Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 22:19, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
The conditions I referred to in this case are the local rules for inactivity and requests for sysop re-elections. I expect the Stewards not to act on request only, but to check for the community consensus first. AFAICS, Dschungelfan's requests for removal of sysop flags are in compliance with our local policies. If you doubt that, please tell us why so we can discuss how to proceed from here.--Aschmidt (talk) 00:57, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
Ah, now I got what you meant: as for the removal of sysop rights here on this very page, I thought you meant on the Adminwiederwahl pages. Technically, everything is correct, yes. I did not indicate any doubt about that. Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 22:03, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
@DerHexer: On the AWW pages, nobody asks for removal of sysop rights, but only for reelection of sysops, that's the difference and that's also the misunderstanding. Removal of rights can only be asked for on this page and only under specific conditions and never without any reasoning. --Bjarlin (talk) 00:29, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
@Bjarlin: With the current policy that admins definitely lose their rights when they either do not notice this request for re-election, do not have the required amount of edits to start it, are not willing to follow this process, or anything else that would prevents users from requesting removal of sysops rights here, voters also implicitely approve a de-sysop. These edits are not just nice requests for re-elections but also imply negative consequences if the admin does not take any action. And from what I know, Wikipedia is a volunteer project where nobody should be forced to take any action that might have negative consequences like going into a re-election they did not want to or didn't consider to be necessary. Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 09:52, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
It's a difference, if someone votes specifically for a deadministration (as in the reelection itself) or if someone thinks that a reelection is or could be needed for whatever reason and votes for this reelection - with the possibility of deadministration, if the sysop doesn't want a reelection at this time or at any time anymore because of inactivity or another reason. That's always possible, and if that would not be wanted, AWW would never have been implemented by the community, because that always means forcing either reelection or desysop. That's what I'm saying. And every desysopped user always can candidate later again. The rest of the discussion would be better at dewiki on any other page but not here, where only the conditions for deadmin are relevant, but not the discussion about the whole procedure. Your first comment here has been really misunderstandable especially on this page, where this other discussion is not relevant for the conditions for removal. Best wishes --Bjarlin (talk) 14:27, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
I do not see anyone who misunderstood my comment, in fact, nobody reacted on it at all. Instead, Aschmidt clarified what he meant when I was wondering what he meant and I was completely fine with that; until my interpretation was questioned here (and I stick to my word: the process turned out to be partly a disguised de-sysop process due to some misconception of the re-election process in the beginning which hardly were intended). But indeed, that's not the right place to discuss this. And it was never my intention to do so here (nor to support the block request in any case). Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 22:15, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
@DerHexer: Just one last short answer: Not anyone is not true, because I definitely misunderstood your first comment. I thought you meant that you questioned the procedure on this page (when to request deadmin on this page and by whom) and I have the impression that Aschmidt also misunderstood it. That really has not been clear (for me until your comment at 22:03, 28 August 2016 which changed that misunderstanding). Just to let you know. The rest of it not here anymore. --Bjarlin (talk) 21:13, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
Well, you later revealed that you were also confused. I never got in touch with your confusion before his and my clarifications. —DerHexer (Talk) 21:18, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
That has been one of two reasons (jkb and you questioning this request here and discussing it: "lack of criteria" when and who may make a request here) for my comment at 15:09, 28 August 2016 with quoting the text of the MB / AWW page, even though I've put it below. --Bjarlin (talk) 21:39, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

  • 2 have been limitedly active recently (Beeyan has 3 edits, the other two in May 2014; Rahmatdenas' previous edit to voting was in December 2014 and the edit before that was in November 2013)
This leaves only 2 actively involved users voting, you and Naval Scene. On projects with these levels of limited activity, we rather give temporary adminship to limit the impact of inactive admins on the development of a project. Savhñ 12:01, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
I have to admit that our community is still struggling to find a stable base of editors, but Algazel has been a very active member that deserves to be given appropriate adminship status. Then again, what are the reasoning behind this, this, and this? Muhraz (talk) 13:33, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
He is an administrator now, and his current access will last for three months. After that, if there are no concerns, then he can be granted temporary access for periods of 6 months or 1 year. Those previous requests involved significantly more users who were active members of the community. Ajraddatz (talk) 21:59, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Comment Comment @Ajraddatz: Not that it particularly matters for this event whilst they await Commons decision-making processes, however, temporary adminships haven't required a week's consensus previously, in line with the text above For permanent adminship, please provide a link to the local community approval. For temporary adminship please state for how long and for which tasks you need it, and link to a local announcement. This is a situation where they need a Commons admin to have rights to transfer files, and it is not a case of standard adminship.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:51, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
Two years doing this and I've never heard of automatically granting temp access after just the announcement. The week lets the local community give comment, and if there is support then temporary access can be granted :) Ajraddatz (talk) 02:01, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

Hello, I would like to request administrator rights at the Jamaican Wikipedia. I've already been it here and I would like to continue with my work in the new Wikipedia. --Katxis (talk) 17:14, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

There is still work going on to get this wiki fully up and running. But Katxis was a test administrator on Incubator and was one of the key people in getting this wiki populated and approved. There has been some vandalism on this wiki already. Perhaps stewards would be willing to approve a 3-month initial term for Katxis while everything finishes getting set up, and we'll organize a discussion to try to secure a longer term going forward. StevenJ81 (talk) 19:32, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

Please remove the administrator flag with this party for the systematic violation of the fundamental principles of Wikipedia.

Here is an example of its response to a warning, which it will continue to ignore the rules of ethical behavior and the neutral point of view when writing articles.

There should be a formal request of de-adminship? Please, provide a link if it exists. Ruslik (talk) 12:37, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
Open discussion on de-adminship a local project at this stage is useless. 5-6 months ago grouped 4 people who know each other in everyday life, three of whom work at the Institute and one member of the above participant. In voting as practice has shown they connect students to lobby for their interests. Three of the participants as well as their staff familiar institutions are the heroes of the articles due to lobbying and one of them is a major manipulator, who is also the administrator. In private correspondence, he repeatedly asked to amend rule Wikipedia:Notability (people), since according to this rule, they, their friends, and more than 2,000 articles that they have created to be removed. A striking example of inept protection one of these articles (their friend). I deliberately published his athletic achievements on my personal page, and this implied that the rules in many large language Wikipedia sections have the right to be a hero article, but for many years I did not write the article about yourself and do not worry. However, the request to amend the rule to scientists continued. In order not to demoralize the project, I went to a compromise and agreed to amend rule. A striking example of solidarity scientists and students. They never undelete error pages or insignificant articles to each other, never do not do each other remark. This means that they do not go against their man. The other two administrators are speakers of other languages, one of which is a long time absent, the other from time to time engaged in MediaWiki pages and submit our project Fabricator. When I assigns administrator flag, I thought that in the future it will become a bureaucrat, as a young, but soon realized that he was mistaken (an example of censorship porn industry). I do not have time to collect diffs, but if needed I will find. Thanks. AryanSogd (t) 12:02, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
Well, I don't think this undermine the local request for de-adminship and I doubt any steward will grant your request without the local de-adminship process. The local community consensus is important. Please, start a request for de-adminship in your local wiki and if there is any clear evidence of canvassing, you can bring it to stewards attention here. Wikicology (talk) 08:56, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
In private correspondence, there is evidence not only of agitation, but also a violation Wikipedia:Sock puppetry. Publish private correspondence, not ethical. To experience and not sleep at night that the project turns into a billboard for the affirmation of unknown candidates sciences, as well as the propaganda of Sunni Hanafi sense - I do not want. Thank God I am a Muslim, Sunni Hanafi, but I'm a Muslim adequate. If it had not become a bureaucrat, I would not know about dolls. I'm sorry that was the bureaucrat because this tool makes it impossible to protect the project. I also understand the stewards, who have no right to be dictators. Please withdraw from my account the following tools:
@AryanSogd: I will write a bilingual English/Russian comment to make it easier for you to understand.
First of all, I am not a steward and have no influence on decisions here, but I want to try to help you. What are you writing about VASHGIRD's actions sounds like serious violations. In particular, misuse of Wikipedia articles (example) and sockpuppetry (per your emails) might be serious reasons for desysopping. However, Tajik Wikipedia has a rather significant community (a dozen of active users), and in this case removal of access should be decided by local community, stewards will only do the necessary action.
  • If you are aware of sockpuppetry cases by VASHGIRD, please submit a request for checkuser at SRCU.
  • If you think that pages on Candidates of Sciences (PhD) are not notable, please discuss this in Tajik Wikipedia. Stewards are not supposed to decide on this, moreover, even if user VASHGIRD will be desysopped he will still be able to vote against deletion of articles about PhDs, thus in any case you need to discuss this with other Tajik Wikipedians.
  • If violations of rules by VASHGIRD (in particular sockpuppetry) will be confirmed, please open a vote on removal of his administrator's rights in Tajik Wikipedia. Please try to explain all violations of rules in detail so that the situation is clear for other users.
  • And please do not make emotional decisions on giving up your sysop/crat rights. Similar situations with sysop abuse already happened in many other projects, for instance, Chechen Wikipedia had a way more complex case, thus your problem is not unique, and such problems can be solved. In the meantime you can be much more helpful for the project if you keep sysop rights — NickK (talk) 00:27, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
Прежде всего, я не стюард и не влияю на принятие здесь решений, но хочу попробовать вам помочь. То, что вы пишете о действиях участника VASHGIRD, похоже на довольно серьёзные нарушения. В частности, использование статей Википедии не по назначению (пример) и кукловодство (согласно вашим письмам) могут быть весомыми основаниями для лишения прав. Однако в таджикской Википедии достаточно большое сообщество (есть десяток активных участников), и в таком случае решение о снятии прав должно принимать местное сообщество, стюарды же лишь выполняют это решение. В данном случае я бы советовал вам следующее:
  • Если вам известны случаи кукловодства участника VASHGIRD, пожалуйста, подайте заявку на проверку на страницу SRCU
  • Если вы считаете, что статьи о кандидатах наук незначимы, пожалуйста, обсудите это на страницах таджикской Википедии. Стюарды не могут принимать решения об этом, более того, даже если участник VASHGIRD будет лишён прав администратора, он всё равно сможет голосовать против удаления статей о кандидатах наук, так что вам в любом случае надо обсудить этот вопрос с другими участниками таджикской Википедии
  • Если нарушения со стороны участника VASHGIRD (в частности, кукловодство) подтвердятся, откройте голосование о лишении его прав администратора в таджикской Википедии. Постарайтесь подробно объяснить нарушения, чтобы другие участники также поняли всю сложность ситуации.
  • И, пожалуйста, не надо принимать эмоциональных решений о добровольном снятии прав. Такие ситуации со злоупотреблением других администраторов уже были во многих других проектах, например, в чеченской Википедии был гораздо более сложный случай, так что ваш случай не уникальный, и такие проблемы можно решить. В то же время, вы сможете принести намного больше пользы проекту, сохранив права администратора — NickK (talk) 00:27, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
