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.

If you are here to report that an RFA or an RFB is "overdue" or "expired", please wait at least 12 hours from the scheduled end time before making a post here about it. There are a fair number of active bureaucrats, and all of them keep an eye on the time remaining on these discussions. Thank you for your patience.

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

Resysop request (Siroxo)[edit]

Hello! I was a Wikipedia admin for many years, through waves of high and low activity. In 2019 I was desysopped due to inactivity. Over the past years I've returned to being an active editor including improving existing articles and starting new articles.

The primary reason I am requesting resysopping is to continue to use tools such as accessing deleted article edit histories, as they occasionally contain useful references and citations that can be used to improve existing articles. I also anticipate once again being involved in various maintenance activities as my editing takes me there. I've contributed to maintenance and !votes in the past, and have been and will continue familiarizing myself with the updated norms.

Wikipedia has been a big part of my life for nearly 20 years, I'm proud of my contributions, and I'd like to be able to continue to contribute as effectively as possible. Thank you. —siroχo 10:37, 27 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Last 100 edits go back to 2011, and as near as I can tell the last logged admin action was in 2008 with an undeletion, so unless I am mistaken the inactivity rules (particularly the "5 years with no admin action") preclude you from this request and a new RFA will be needed.

I just did the same calculation and came to roughly the same conclusion that this request would need to go via RfA. SilkTork (talk) 10:46, 27 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks, both, for the reply. I'll do that at some point in the future. —siroχo 10:51, 27 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That's the kind of attitude I love to support in RfAs. Please drop me a line when you've got a few months active editing back under your belt because I'd like the opportunity to consider nominating you. --Dweller (talk) Old fashioned is the new thing! 15:13, 27 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you! Will do. —siroχo 18:51, 27 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Abuse of power by the admin Maile66[edit]

First of all, I am not sure if this is the appropriate place to post. All I know is that bureaucrats rank above administrators in the "WikiHierarchy".

When posting my opinion on English Wikipedia policy regarding administrators and the rules affecting them, the admin @Maile66 apparently felt so personally threatened by it that he INDEFINITELY blocked me under the ridiculous pretext of me being blocked for ONE SINGLE WEEK on the English Wiktionary – an in my opinion unjustified block I've appealed. Apparently I am not there to build an encyclopedia, even though I near 3000 edits, over 80% of which in articles.

This is the most poetic, the most symbolic argument in favor of holding admins to account for their actions, that I have ever seen. I'm not even sure if this request is correct, as a part of me believes Maile66 is a subtle genius trying to help me in my cause.

But in doubt, I have to request the competent people to take a look at this, and judge whether such impulsive behavior is worthy of someone with administrative privileges on the – by far – most consulted encyclopedia in the world. I wonder how many fellows have received such "treatment". And once again, this all because I posted in favor of a more direct procedure to hold admins to account for their actions... what is so foul that warranted me an indefinite block?

P.S. If this is not the right place, please move it to the right spot, instead of removing it. Thank you! Synotia (moan) 21:04, 5 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Synotia, you should cut and paste this to WP:ANI, which is the correct place for your complaint (to start with, at least). Izno (talk) 21:13, 5 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you. Let's hope there will be no clannish defense. Synotia (moan) 21:18, 5 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
