Current administratorsEdit

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.

Admin since February 2014 (see previous discussions), currently inactive (contributions · logs · count · crossactivity). Clockery will be removed automatically unless a simple majority of established users support continued access.
  •   Question I would like to ask Clockery how they see their future in the project and whether they think they would need the admin tools. --Jan Kameníček (talk) 11:18, 3 September 2021 (UTC)
    •   Oppose I guess that every admin who has to take some time off wiki has at least all the notifications sent to their email, including notifications of being mentioned. Having not received any response to my question, I am voting for the removal of rights for inactivity. I do hope that nothing serious happened to Clockery and that they just decided to devote their time to something different. --Jan Kameníček (talk) 11:09, 8 September 2021 (UTC)
  •   Oppose adminship for inactivity.--Jusjih (talk) 16:54, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
  •   Support --Zyephyrus (talk) 18:57, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
  •   Neutral --DannyS712 (talk) 22:03, 9 September 2021 (UTC)
  •   Oppose with no prejudice for return of tools if/when they choose to return Inductiveloadtalk/contribs 09:31, 10 September 2021 (UTC)
  •   Comment Hi all! I've been busy in real life and haven't been able to contribute as much as I'd like to, so I'd like to have my rights removed. Hopefully I'll be back at some point when it's easier for me to contribute. Thanks so much, it's been really great working with all of you. :) C. F. 15:44, 10 September 2021 (UTC)
    Thanks for noticing us. Hope you will be able to join us again one day :-) --Jan Kameníček (talk) 15:50, 10 September 2021 (UTC)

Nominations for adminshipEdit

Older nominations are archived.


PseudoSkull (talkcontribs) • activityGlobal

I would like to nominate PseudoSkull for adminship. They have been a Wikimedia since 2015, and currently is an admin at English Wiktionary, so know the tools. They have been active with us since April 2020 and amassed a significant number of edits with us in the past year. They have participated in all of our namespaces and have demonstrated their competence and compliance with the style guide. They have been making requests for functions that can only be undertaken by administrators and I think that they have the skills to undertake these admin tasks themself. I like their communication approach and discussion for consensus, and if admin tools are provided I hope that would continue. I put this nomination before the community. PseudoSkull it is tradition here that you accept the nomination here prior to voting starting. — billinghurst sDrewth 01:01, 10 September 2021 (UTC)

I accept the nomination, and am thankful for the opportunity. PseudoSkull (talk) 01:15, 10 September 2021 (UTC)
