Hat collector

Hello, today I realized MohandesWiki (talk · contribs) moved RfB of another user (named H.b.sh) in Persian Wikinews [1] and changed it so it would look like it's his RfB [2] (this person has more than 3K edits overall and it can't be considered as newbies' mistake) and tried to get the access in here [3], This person is an obvious hat collector (I can show you at least 5 right requests in just Persian Wikipedia) this user also requested for adminship in Persian Wikiquote, Persian Wiktionary and Persian Wikibooks Amir (talk) 01:08, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Ok... what action would you like us to take? I'm not going to lock someone for requesting rights on a bunch of wikis. Ajraddatz (talk) 01:45, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
This is not even the right venue to request a lock. This page is for "requests for help from a [Meta-Wiki] sysop or bureaucrat". And, besides, it looks like steward intervention is not required in this case; being a "hat collector" is no reason to be locked. PiRSquared17 (talk) 02:08, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
No, I meant this person made a hoax to get the crat right in here (see the first part) and I consider it an act of vandalism, I want a sysop of meta takes action against this not other hat collecting stuff Amir (talk) 02:56, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
Again, what action would you like us to take? The request on SRP was a while ago, so any block would be entirely punitive. Nor do I think that the request fits a common definition of vandalism: "the act of editing the project in a malicious manner that is intentionally disruptive"1.

  • @Ladsgroup: While a person's approach may be taken as "hat-collecting" there is no policy globally to which this is a contravention, and it is really up to local communities to work out a person's motivation, and whether they wish for a person to be granted rights in their community, this is not a steward's role. Stewards are more likely to slow down the successive granting of rights, than to deny them, or, we may be concerned that in a small language set that an individual may be dominating a community(ies) if there are too many rights and onus on the one person with rights.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:03, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Please implement the decision from commons:Commons:Administrators/Requests/High_Contrast_(de-adminship)

Hi, we need a stewart to remove the sysop bit from User:High_Contrasts account. Thanks :-( --Dschwen (talk) 13:39, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Done. Thanks for their prior service. Ajraddatz (talk) 13:41, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
For the record, such requests belong to SRP. --MF-W 15:54, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Inactive admins on ca.wikipedia

After the community notification of admin activity review, the local discussion has concluded with that there will be no local policy by now and you can proceed with the process. Please, desysop deceased Jordicollcosta without further notifications. --Vriullop (talk) 14:49, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for informing us; I have now desysopped Jordicollcosta and we'll soon proceed with the notifications for the other inactive sysops. --MF-W 15:52, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
