Advice on bureaucrats rights at swwiki

Hi MarcoAurelio I try to contact you somewhat randomly. I guess you may be in a position for advice I need. I look for someone to kindly advise me on some technicalities. At swwiki we have agreed on criteria to remove inactive admins and also have voted a number of new admins in. I am bureaucrat and admin at swwiki. When I open the Special:UserRights which is sw:Maalum:HakizaMtumiaji, I can add the new admins but I cannot remove anyone.

According to the explanations at meta:Bureaucrat I should be able to do that. Is that correct? To whom do we talk about such settings? And we have to remove a bureaucrat who bade us farewell - where would I find the stewards to remove him? Kipala (talk) 07:29, 22 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello Kipala. Sorry for not replying earlier but I am busy. Bureaucrats in Wikimedia wikis by default do not have the power to remove sysop or bureaucrat status, they can only grant it. Removing those permissions can only be done by stewards by request at Steward requests/Permissions. It is true, however, that in some few wikis listed at Bureaucrat, local bureaucrats are able to remove sysop permissions; but those are exceptions to the configuration that are usually not granted due to governance and security concerns. I hope that this answers your question. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:00, 25 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
