Jon Harald Søby (talk contribs blocks protects deletions moves rights)

The Translate extension has been enabled here now, but for it to be used we need some translation administrators that can mark pages for translation. I have many years of experience with it on Meta and on Wikimedia Norge's wiki (under my work account), so I feel bold enough to nominate myself for this.

For those who don't know, a translation administrator can do the technical marking of pages for translation, so that normal users can actually translate them. Despite the name "translation administrator", one does not have to be an administrator to do this. If we were to discuss criteria for who can be one, I suggest simply (a) users who have experience with this from other wikis or (b) established users (maybe 100+ edits or so?) who are willing to learn how to use it. It's not very hard, and there is an easy tutorial available here. Jon Harald Søby (talk) 12:27, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

Votes for removal of rights[edit]

This areas is for votes to remove rights, either for inactivity or for misuse of rights (or any other reason). Please vote/comment on whether you think that the users below should keep or lose their respective user rights. Unless otherwise noted, users who have multiple rights will only have the rights under the particular section removed (i.e. a user with both admin and bureaucrat rights who is nominated for removal of bureaucrat rights, will retain their admin rights). However, normally bureaucrats who lose their admin rights will also lose their bureaucrat rights. Removals of most rights require a Steward, after a discussion is closed with a result of removal, the closing editor should post a request on meta.

Vote for removal of administrator privileges[edit]

This section is for removal of admin rights ("desysopping") If you have been listed here due to inactivity, but intend to resume admin duties, please indicate this so that others can re-evaluate whether you should be desysopped. Admins who are desysopped due to inactivity are encouraged to resume administration whenever they wish, either by talking to a crat or initiating a request above. Admins who do not respond may be automatically desysopped after 30 days.

  • Desysop per over two-year inactivity (however he is still active in English Wikipedia). Ankry (talk) 14:12, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
  • On hold. Let's await whether he responds. Otherwise, desysop. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 15:26, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
  • On hold per Ooswesthoesbes.--Jusjih (talk) 04:10, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

It's been two weeks and I've seen no reaction, so I'll go ahead and make a request at meta to desysop this user. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 09:53, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
