Requests for permissions
- Requested user-rights: Administrator.
Hello, since i'm on mediawiki, i'm often dealing with vandalism/spam/OFP (out of project) and i imported some warning template from en.wiki (with also custom border). I know i only have 180 edits (without delete edit and with some duplicate edit) but that will be simpler for me (and for the other admin, sometimes i ask clump to block some users).

- Requested user-rights: Interface administrator.
For maintenance works related with supporting old and new JS/CSS code, and also for maintenance around system messages (e.g. local translations). I'm longtime admin in Meta-wiki and in MediaWiki.org. --Kaganer (talk) 08:37, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
- Support. To maintain messages, you can still do this with admin-only rights. wargo (talk) 21:32, 25 November 2018 (UTC)
- I reviewed your MediaWiki namespace contributions and didn't see any edits to CSS/JS pages since ~2012. Are you sure you need the rights? You should be able to edit nearly all MediaWiki messages without them. Legoktm (talk) 19:57, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

Proposal to remove long-term inactive administrators
- Previous discussion on the same topic: Project:Requests/RfC/Removal_of_inactive_sysops.
- Current admin/'crat statistics: https://tools.wmflabs.org/meta/stewardry/mediawikiwiki?sysop=1&bureaucrat=1
I was wondering if the views of the community would have changed since the last discussion took place on whether we should stablish a mechanism to remove long-term inactive administrators. The easiest solution for me would be to add this wiki to the list of projects where AAR is applied. I feel it is quite a conservative policy in which it requires 2 years of absolute inactivity plus one month warning to the community and the user before any kind of removal can take place.

- I see a decent amount of people in the statistics list that apparently haven't edited the wiki in a few years, but are still active on IRC/Gerrit/Phabricator. We shouldn't desysop those people. Legoktm (talk) 19:30, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
- Yes, I agree. The good thing about m:AAR is that for every admin detected as inactive it requires both community and user notification. If the user replies that he wish to keep their rights, policy mandates that rights should be kept unless the community rules otherwise. That's why I think it's a kinda straightforward and conservative policy in that regard. Thanks for your input. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:11, 18 February 2018 (UTC)
