OTRS wrongfully removed

Hi, Tony - I woke-up to a very stressful situation that I'm hoping you can help me resolve. See this, and this where my stress showed, and this. They had the wrong email address, it was the holidays and COVID, and the ArbCom elections and other issues that kept cropping up, but I participated when there were tickets I could handle. Other agents kept taking ownership which left me with not much to do. I even went back to old tickets. I kept apprised on the Otrs list and checked in at my dashboard.

Invitation for Functionary consultation 2021

Greetings SWMT member,

I'm letting you know in advance about a meeting I'd like to invite you to regarding the Universal Code of Conduct and the community's ownership of its future enforcement. I'm still in the process of putting together the details, but I wanted to share the date with you: 10 July, 2021. I do not have a time on this date yet, but I will let you soon. We have created a meta page with basic information. Please take a look at the meta page and sign up your name under the appropriate section.

Thank you for your time.--BAnand (WMF) 03:21, 3 June 2021 (UTC)Reply

UTRS closure

Hi Tony, I'd like to consider if you would be prepared to consider if you are able to progress a close on my UTRS appeal 70412 on the English Wikipedia. Having this open for a long time is causing me mental stress; and I believe it is unreasonable that any appeal should remain open for this long. Please be aware I now mostly edit under the account DeirgeDel (on Wikidata, enWikiquote, Commons, and :ga), but need to use Djm-leighpark for anything related to my unblock on the English Wikipedia. Thankyou -- (now DeirgeDel) User:Djm-leighpark(a)talk 22:09, 28 March 2023 (UTC)Reply

User:Djm-leighpark, is there a reason you reached out to me? Looked through the appeal and I don't see any relation to it. Sorry if I'm missing something, just been real life busy and don't think I'm related to the block. User:Yamla - do you have anything to comment on here.

Hi Tony. Thankyou for taking the trouble to read that appeal and respond here. The reason I reached out to you as I was specifically looking for an admin with wide respect on the English Wikipedia who was not involved in my block; ideally a member of the functionary team. The guidance on W:en:Category:Requests for unblock in the information for administrators Per the blocking policy and block appeals guidelines, unless exceptional or expedient circumstances apply, administrators should not unblock a user without prior discussion with the blocking admin, nor should they review an unblock request where they have a conflict of interest, whether by having set the original block or by participating in disputes relating to it.. You're pretty respected in matters, per RFA's where many look your views and will ofter follow it. And as you've said of many others, loosely quoting, you've "got a clue and not a jerk". I'm a little paranoid at being deliberated censored, concerned any admin unblocking me might be targeted, and concerned many admins who might be willing to unblock me date not touch it. If I was banned rather than blocked I would be eligible for an ArbCom. My current status is limbo. W:d:Q566/W:d:Q270710. I suggest any appeal is a mental stress, possibly equal to an RFA but at least that's a week and almost always allows a editor to continue. Having the appeal open so long arguably breaches W:WP:5P4 respect. If Yamla feels they can close my appeal that's great. I'm hoping to be involved in the virtual meet very shortly and it would have been convenient to be unblocked by then to avoid and proxy edit concerns. That said I understand you are very busy and thank you for your time. -- User:Djm-leighpark(a)talk 17:53, 29 March 2023 (UTC)Reply
