Important: Admin activity review (2023)

MarcoAurelio (talkcontribs)


A global policy regarding the removal of advanced permissions (i.e. administrator, bureaucrat, interface administrator, etc.) from inactive users was adopted by community consensus in 2013. For this policy, inactivity is defined as having zero (0) edits and zero (0) administrative actions on the wiki for the last two years.

According to this policy, the stewards will review the activity of users with advanced permissions on public wikis without a local inactivity policy. This wiki opted-in per consensus in August 2020.

To the best of our knowledge, the following users with advanced permissions are inactive (data as of January 1st, 2023):

The users listed above will receive shortly a notification on their local talk pages, asking them to respond here if they wish to keep all or some of the advanced permissions they hold. If the users do not respond by 2023-03-26, their advanced permissions will be removed by the stewards without further notice.

The following users, although inactive per policy, have been excluded from the list as they are current WMF employees and may be in need of advanced permissions. Please check with them if they still need them or if they shall be transfered to their work accounts instead:

  • Brion VIBBER
  • Guillom
  • Varnent

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. You may also post a message in the stewards' noticeboard.

Yours sincerely.

Hello. Since there has been no user or community reply after one month, I have removed the advanced permissions from all the users listed above with the exception of Brion VIBBER, Guillom and Varnent.
