LangCom has recommended the closure and deletion of this project, but some of the rationale relates to the alleged abuse of admin permissions. --Rschen7754 18:44, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

I think we may make notes of it but I don't think we are going to do something given that the site is going to be wiped anyway... — regards, Revi 00:33, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Steward Closure Requested[edit]

Hello. A community consultation on the use of partial/temporary bans is scheduled to open shortly. At that page, a steward closure is explicitly suggested. I'd like to get an uninvolved volunteer willing to close that discussion. Such a closure will likely minimize drama, especially on If this request is in an incorrect location, please move it to the correct one. Thanks, Tazerdadog (talk) 10:50, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Are you asking for a volunteer to close it in the future, or are you asking for a volunteer to close it now? Vermont (talk) 23:42, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
It is not open so it cannot be closed now - I take it as they are asking for someone to close it in the future. (NOTE: Not me.) — regards, Revi 00:35, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
I am asking for a volunteer to close it after the discussion has finished. Tazerdadog (talk) 15:29, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
I think it's unlikely any steward would volunteer that now, prior to the actual discussion. It's probably best to just wait, as the stewards are aware that they are being asked to close it. Vermont (talk) 17:44, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
If WMF wants us to close it before they do it themselves, they know where to ask for our closure and the door is open. (Whether any of us decide to do the work is a different story but anyway) If they think they want to clarify this before the consultation begins, I think they would ask us before then. — regards, Revi 14:43, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
