user:Kurtelacić, hr. wiki

Hello there. This is me, one of inactive admins at hr. wiki. Whence the idleness? I've lost my password and e-mail details long time ago, not to mention disillusion regarding the whereabouts of our project back in the day. Before I go on, I'd like to express my willingness to fully cooperate on establishing my identity. Some of the fellow senior sysops could vouch for me, namely Roberta F., Kubura and SpeedyGonsales.

I haven't exactly conducted any serious action to get my rights back as of yet, this being the first one. I assume that it would have been business as usual had I been able to access my old account. Since I can't log in as of many a year ago, and I still possess my sysop rights, I'd like to know what the chances are for me getting the adminship on this account?

Kind regards,

User:Kubura has, unexpectedly, challenged my claims. I hereby restate my full willingness to disclose whatever is necessary in order to get my privileges back. Splićanin (talk) 08:17, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
The only means to have access to that account, and its rights, is for you to log into that account; we have no means to give you access to that account. Re rights to this current account, that can only come from your community approving the rights, it is not something that stewards can do without the community's authority and as hrWP has their own bureaucrats they manage that aspect anyway.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:17, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
Fair enough. I'll be making my case elsewhere then. Cheers. Splićanin (talk) 14:34, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
I am just very cautious. Please, do not remove the admintools of user Kurtelacić, since the reactivation of the adminstatus is in the process. I have some indications that user Splićanin is user Kurtelacić. Kubura (talk) 04:17, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
Well, if he cannot access the Kurtelacić account, then having the admin tools on it is pointless... but it will be a month before we take any action anyway. --Rschen7754 04:22, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
There is no clear consensus at the discussion at hrwiki regarding the matter. Also, removal of the administrator tools on the old account does not prevent restoring them on the new account, and only the latter can be done by bureaucrats. Therefore, I will be removing the rights as an exercise of discretion. --Rschen7754 05:42, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
