From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki


I wonder if a bureaucrat can remove someone's sysop status. Or we should contact some developers in that case? Tomos 23:59, 8 Feb 2004 (UTC)

I rephrase, it is not resignation, it is forced resignation I wish :-) May a bureaucrat unsysop people ? If so, I apply :-) Anthere

Some people resign, I suppose. We indeed just had the first such (peaceful) announcement at Japanese Wikipedia. It was not because frustration, disappointment, or ungrounded criticism, it seems.

Anyway, I guess bureaucrat can "desysop" somebody based on what's said since I asked that question. Good to know. Tomos 22:30, 27 Feb 2004 (UTC)

A bureaucrat cannot remove another user's sysop or bureaucrat status on Wikimedia wikis at this time. Rob Church (talk) 20:40, 22 April 2006 (UTC)
