A beer for you![edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png Belated thanks for your work on the Morning277 SPI. —rybec 07:27, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
I have to agree, thanks for everything. --Rschen7754 07:36, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for the hard work and dedication you've shown to the Wikipedia community. Sad to see you go. —Tom Morris (talk) 08:05, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
I too was stunned to see this, and am sad to see you go. Hope all is well with you and that this won't be the last time we meet. Steven Zhang Help resolve disputes! 12:47, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
  • I've known this day was coming for some time now, and I certainly understand why. Thanks for the tremendous amount of support and assistance you've given me over the last year. Don't be a stranger off-wiki. Dennis Brown |  | WER 15:27, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Seriously? Yet another loss to the project.—cyberpower ChatOnline 15:30, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
  • I've known you for a long time and you have been an all round great editor. Thanks for all your hard work and hope to see you someday back on Wikipedia. Goodbye. ~TheGeneralUser (talk) 17:46, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Thank you for what you have done. You've been a tremendous asset to the community and will be missed. NativeForeigner Talk 02:38, 3 September 2013 (UTC)
  • I haven't known you for very long, but you seemed like me to be a good administrator and checkuser, as well as an all-around nice guy, and I'm sorry to see you go. I understand, however, that there may be real-life reasons for your retirement that I don't know of. — SamXS 14:04, 3 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Thank you for all the tremendous work you did here. You became one of the most exemplary Wikipedians and this is a very big loss to the project. I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavours. Cheers! — ΛΧΣ21 01:35, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Unblocked Queens Library IP[edit]

I've unblocked, at least for now, 207.159.196.253 (talk · contribs), which is used by staff and patrons at the Queens Library. They're having a wiki-workshop training session tomorrow (requiring several new accounts to be registered), and besides that there have not been any bad edits from that IP recently.--Pharos (talk) 01:08, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi Pharos. As WilliamH has retired, I'll take the liberty of responding. Since the abusive user has returned to that location a number of times to register and use sockpuppets, please let me know when the workshop has wrapped up so that the IP can be reblocked. I don't like blocking public library IPs like this, but sometimes we don't have a lot of choices. Thanks ​—DoRD (talk)​ 03:54, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

24.19.234.62[edit]

Can some talk page watcher identify the sockmaster for 24.19.234.62? The same user has returned to trolling & harassment as 50.174.76.70 and was blocked again. Looks like a WP:LTA case already. Someone not using his real name (talk) 03:33, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Implementation of Wikipedia:Bureaucrats#Bureaucrat activity requirements[edit]

You are receiving this message because you are listed at Wikipedia:Bureaucrats#Former bureaucrats. Writ Keeper pointed out that these users were not directly notified of the community discussion ending August 2015, where consensus was reached to remove the bureaucrat permissions of users who have not participated in bureaucrat activity for three years.

As of 1 October 2015, any former bureaucrat who has not participated in bureaucrat activity for three years that wishes their bureaucrat permissions restored will need to request reinstatement at RFB.

If you intend to return to bureaucrat activity, please request restoration of permissions before 1 October 2015 or three years passes since your last bureaucrat activity, whichever is later.

To assist with the implementation of this requirement, please see Wikipedia:Bureaucrat activity. Modeled after Wikipedia:Inactive administrators and similar to that process, the log page will be created on 1 September 2015. Bureaucrats who have not met the activity requirements as of that date will be notified by email (where possible) and on their talk page to advise of the pending removal.

If the notified user does not return to bureaucrat activity and the permissions are removed, they will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFB. Removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon the affected user in any way.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. –xenotalk 20:53, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
