Discouraging text

Do we really need to write "Your request might be rejected if you don't follow the instructions, and not doing so would reflect poorly on your suitability." on Steward requests/Global permissions/GS-Header? I assume anyone requesting GS would know how to copy the template. It's a bit discouraging. PiRSquared17 (talk) 20:46, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

I guess it's rather targetted at hatcollectors, that at legitimate requestors of GS. --MF-W 20:51, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Editinterface/New wikis importers

What do you think about removing the separate sections for requesting global editinterface and New wikis importer permissions? Since the requests are very rare, the sections are mostly empty, and the requests could be made in the "Other rights" section as well. --MF-W 20:51, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

  • I agree on removing the New wiki importers section. Editinterface requests are IMHO frequent enough to keep a separate section for them. Regards --Iste (D) 12:54, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Support. --Stryn (talk) 15:44, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
I removed both sections. --MF-W 17:34, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. I missed this question, but I support the removal of both as well. Trijnsteltalk 12:21, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
