Result: All listed rights removed.

We have 14 inactive admins, which is nearly half of the total. The following users are proposed to lose adminship for inactivity. 75% support for removal is needed for removing. This will be closed after a week by an active bureaucrat.

This is for removal of bureaucrat right only. Only rights change ever was in December 2006. Made 9 renames, the last over a year ago, and 11 bot flags, the last nearly a year ago. Is inactive as an administrator as well, but only for 2 months.

Comments[change source]

Why not de-sysop everyone in this collapsible box? The arguments above adhere for all within, not just those mentioned above. --Gwib -(talk)- 21:48, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Because they've only been inactive a few months. People are allowed to take a break once in a while. However, the above users seem to be on indefinitely long breaks. Majorly talk 22:41, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Agreed. We shouldn't set the precedent of desysopping inactive administrators as soon as they become inactive. Some of the below are away for too short a period to consider desysopping at the moment, and some of them have genuine reasons for being away. With the exception of Phaedriel, some of the above users are actively editing on other projects, and one of them even has his talk page as a soft redirect to another wiki! If the below are inactive on this project for longer then further clean-out should occur, perhaps reconfirmation of inactive administrators after 8 months to a year of inactivity is a reasonable precedent? PeterSymonds (talk) 09:05, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
As to Phaedriel, I am sure she has good reasons for not editing; As to the others my (personal) understanding is that when they come back the then bureaucrats to be will probably not have much trouble re-setting the flag. --Eptalon (talk) 15:12, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
I think it should be looked at on a case by case level. If a user is inactive across all of WMF then perhaps 6 months, but if they are active elsewhere ping them after say 8 months, wait for a response for a further month, and if no response remove after 9 months inactivity. Imho that then gives them enough time to respond but also doesn't leave an admin flag on an inactive account. BG7even 17:55, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Looks pretty clear to me: Desysop, the resp. users can ask for reinstatement, if they like.--Eptalon (talk) 21:13, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
