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.

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.

Inactive admins for July 2022[edit]

The following admins can be desysopped for inactivity:

Thanks to both of them for their service to Wikipedia. Graham87 04:31, 1 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

 Done. Primefac (talk) 08:33, 1 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Updated pages, did the notifications. — xaosflux Talk 13:09, 1 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Updated admin highlighter .js page. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 11:14, 4 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Note to any admin highlighter script maintainers, I maintain a list of users with advanced perms at User:NovemBot/userlist.js that is updated daily by a bot. So it stays up to date without needing manual updating. –Novem Linguae (talk) 19:44, 4 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Would it make sense to replace/merge Amalthea's script with yours? Primefac (talk) 20:03, 4 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
There are a variety of candidates for such a merge: Amorymeltzer's (maintained by bot), Theopolisme's (not updated), and Ais523's (maintained by bot but deprecated). There are probably quite a few more. Sdrqaz (talk) 21:52, 4 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
As far as I can tell, none of these are gadgets, and none of this requires bureaucrats to do anything. With my intadmin hat on, we'd be very unlikely to include one personal script in to another - but if a script owner is long-term inactive we may put a notice (even a user-visible notice) on their script that it has been deprecated with a potential replacement suggested. If these are very popular, a possible longer-term fix may be to write a gadget, source it from some admin-bot-maintained .json page (which of all those, Amorymeltzer's being a bot-op for would be my early-leaning suggestion). — xaosflux Talk 21:59, 4 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
none of this requires bureaucrats to do anything - true, but it came up and at the very least gets us pointed in a direction. I do agree, though, that a more in-depth discussion can probably be shifted further afield. Primefac (talk) 06:45, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

RIP Desysop (Anthony Appleyard)[edit]

Per Wikipedia talk:Deceased Wikipedians#Anthony Appleyard (permalink), and with reasonable evidence of his death, I have removed his admin rights (and fully-protected his user page). Posting here for review. Primefac (talk) 12:38, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Condolences should be left on Anthony's talk page. --Izno (talk) 20:47, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
