Current administrators[edit]

Administrators are given access for one year per the Restricted access policy. Regular votes are held to confirm each user's status. Other languages indicate the areas in which the administrators might be able to converse with outside project members, or help provide public domain translations.

Confirmation discussions[edit]

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 August 2015 (see previous discussions), currently inactive (contributions · logs · count · crosswiki · crossactivity). Captain Nemo will be removed automatically unless a simple majority of established users support continued access.

Removal requested.[1] Hesperian 04:03, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

Reverted self. There has been an error here.
According to our restricted access policy,
"An 'inactive administrator' is one who has not edited during the past six months and has not made more than 50 edits during the last year."
Captain Nemo may not have edited since November 2015, but they made around five thousand edits in the months preceding, and therefore they are not inactive under our policy.
Whoever started this discussion at the start of the month has erred in listing Captain Nemo as inactive. The vote has been held under a misapprehension. As an active administrator, Captain Nemo cannot be removed unless a vote of confidence is called. No such vote of confidence was called, though the criteria for one was met... but again, under a misapprehension. What a mess.
I am going to close this without an outcome, and relist it.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose A sensible reaction, and in response may I register my opposition to their continuance. You cannot win them all. AuFCL (talk) 04:29, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
Can you vote in the "Captain Nemo" section below please? Hesperian 04:47, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
@AuFCL: I do not see how an administrator becoming inactive and therefore being removed from administrator status is a "win" for anyone. BD2412 T 13:18, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
