Confirmation discussionsEdit

Restricted access depends on the continued support of the community. This may be tested by a vote of confidence, in which a simple majority (50%+1) must support the user's continued access for it to be retained. (What access a discussion concerns should be explicitly noted in the discussion's introduction.) Any user may propose a vote of confidence, but at least three established users must support the need for one before it can be called. Such a proposal is made automatically one year after the last scheduled or called proposal (concerning all restricted access).

In the case of an unscheduled (called) proposal, the user may not use the restricted access for any non-trivial action at any time until the vote is closed. A bureaucrat will eventually archive the discussion and, if so decided, request removal of restricted access by a steward.

    Thanks. I am an administrator on 13 wikis, not a steward anymore.--Jusjih (talk) 13:41, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

ZhaladsharEdit

admin since April 2005, bureaucrat since September 2006 (see previous discussions), currently inactive (contributions · logs · count · crossactivity). Zhaladshar will be removed automatically unless a simple majority of established users support continued access.
  •   Oppose remaining a bureaucrat and an administrator for long inactivity.--Jusjih (talk) 02:37, 2 September 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose. Inactivity has now run to over two years. The tools can always be reinstated if he returns to active editing. BD2412 T 01:22, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose per inactivity. Ankry (talk) 10:29, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose both per above. I didn't want to be the first one to oppose, though. Zhaladshar has historically made greatly important contributions to this project, but it's been two years with no edits. That's just a few too many. –MJLTalk 04:16, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose since we're spelling stuff out… I'm not opposed to Zhaladshar being an admin/bureaucrat; just opposed to the user account Zhaladshar having advanced bits while inactive. I think removing bits after even shorter periods of inactivity than this is a good idea, and no removal of bits for inactivity should in itself in any way reflect on or prejudice against regaining those bits on return to editing. Which is, aiui, both current policy and practice, modulo waiting a little too long to remove bits in my opinion. --Xover (talk) 05:54, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose I agree with the rest of you. --Josephina Phoebe White (talk) 23:26, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
