There are three circumstances in which I will resign a userright that I have:

  1. If it becomes clear to me that I do not have the time to use the right effectively, and my inactivity in that role is causing problems.
  2. If I feel that I have made a serious error in judgment, and/or it becomes evident to me that I have lost the trust of the community.
    1. The issue should be discussed in the appropriate forum, such as on my talkpage, or on the relevant noticeboard.
    2. If the issue is not resolved, the appropriate community rights removal process should be followed:
      1. On the English Wikipedia, for adminship, I will honor a recall process (details listed here), or you can file a request with the Arbitration Committee.
      2. Otherwise, the community request for removal of permissions should be followed. Of course, I will have my rights removed if it meets the required threshold, but if it is close, I may still consider resigning anyway.
  3. If by keeping the right, I would be forced to compromise my integrity, or to be associated with something that would compromise my integrity, or would call my trustworthiness as a person or to hold other advanced rights into question, or would result in unjustified risks to my personal privacy.
    1. I do not generally do this without warning.
