To contact bureaucrats to alert them of an urgent issue, please post below.
For sensitive matters, you may contact an individual bureaucrat directly by e-mail.
You may use this tool to locate recently active bureaucrats.

The Bureaucrats' noticeboard is a place where items related to the Bureaucrats can be discussed and coordinated. Any user is welcome to leave a message or join the discussion here. Please start a new section for each topic.

This is not a forum for grievances. It is a specific noticeboard addressing Bureaucrat-related issues. If you want to know more about an action by a particular bureaucrat, you should first raise the matter with them on their talk page. Please stay on topic, remain civil, and remember to assume good faith. Take extraneous comments or threads to relevant talk pages.

Requests to hide usernames which are grossly insulting or contain personal information should not be posted here. Instead, send them to the stewards OTRS queue via meta:Special:Contact/Stewards (or stewards@wikimedia.org), or contact a steward privately via IRC (#wikimedia-stewardsconnect).

To request your administrator status to be removed, initiate a new section below.

As I was managing a user talk page at Meta, I noticed that a local admin has been inactive globally for two years. Per our procedure about inactivity, I have left a note about retention of rights during their editing hiatus (see User talk:Bjelleklang#Activity: no edits or actions for over two years.) I will try to come back in a month, though that I cannot guarantee my memory on that one. :-) — billinghurst sDrewth 00:40, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

IAdmin request (Enterprisey)

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Hi everyone! I'd like to request intadmin for myself. I will primarily maintain the AfC helper gadget, as well as script-installer (RfC) and reply-link when and if (respectively) they become gadgets. I'd also like to contribute to a couple of user scripts (e.g. ePH or this). Qualifications-wise, I've been working on scripts here since at least mid-2013, and I've written quite a few myself. Thanks! Enterprisey (talk!) 22:24, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

There is a standard 48 hour hold for this request. — xaosflux Talk 22:43, 29 January 2019 (UTC)
Bureaucrat note: @Enterprisey: please note, WP:2FA is required for this access, if you have not yet enabled this for your account, please do so. Wikipedia:Simple 2FA has a good overview to get going, please take careful note about managing scratch tokens. Best regards, — xaosflux Talk 23:29, 29 January 2019 (UTC)
I have indeed enabled 2FA. Enterprisey (talk!) 01:26, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

  • Comment I don't understand - why are so many non-bureaucrats chiming in here as if it was up to them? This is the bureaucrats board and this is a decision made by the 'crats - isn't it? -- MelanieN (talk) 05:52, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
    MelanieN, Editors may discuss the applicant, but the final decision rests with the reviewing bureaucrat. Hhkohh (talk) 05:55, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
    In this specific case, I'll admit the pile-on support commentary is pretty useless because Enterprisey is such an eminently qualified candidate. However, as this is a pretty sensitive permission in general, I think it's a good idea to allow endorsements and objections from non-bureaucrats in the community during that 48-hour "hold" period between the request and the earliest the permission can be assigned. The quote that Hhkohh referred to comes from the page Wikipedia:Interface administrators. Mz7 (talk) 09:05, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
    I'd say it is really that people don't need an excuse to vote support or oppose on things. Galobtter (pingó mió) 10:50, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
    Support per Galobtter. He sums it up well: wiki[pm]edians liking !voting, especially when it's a lot like voting. I agree that most don't need an excuse. On a more serious note, it's possible that such standardization of bold support/oppose/delete/keep/etc. !votes, while wholly unnecessary here, makes providing dissent more palatable. ~ Amory (utc) 11:31, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
MelanieN It's the bureaucrats' final decision but I don't think bureaucrats have also been tasked with vetting and debating the candidate. For my part I appreciate {{nbo}}s helping us with the decision. –xenotalk 20:07, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
OK. Thanks for clarifying. -- MelanieN (talk) 17:14, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
  • This isn't a hard decision, if I may be so bold, but regardless I do want to point you to to WT:INTADMIN, where Enterprisey was an active participant in initial discussions around interface-adminship. Specifically, archives 2 and 3, where you will not only find dozens of instances of individuals urging Enterprisey to run for RfA ( Done) but also noting that Enterprisey was one of the few editors who made the "Should RfA be required?" question actually worth discussing. ~ Amory (utc) 11:31, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

IAdmin request (Galobtter)

Hello folks, per Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)#Proposed gadget: Shortdesc helper, my user script Shortdesc helper is becoming a gadget, and I'm mainly requesting the rights to be able to fix/update it myself. I can't claim to be anywhere near as qualified as the (overqualified :)) Enterprisey, but I think maintaining the gadget will provide well enough of an ongoing need for the right. As required, I have 2FA enabled (and a strong password). Galobtter (pingó mió) 18:03, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

Bureaucrat note: There is a standard 48 hour hold for this request. — xaosflux Talk 18:05, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Geez, where's the love for Galobtter? Enterprisey is a hard act to follow I guess... --Floquenbeam (talk) 00:00, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
