|This is a failed proposal. Consensus for its implementation was not established within a reasonable period of time. If you want to revive discussion, please use the talk page or initiate a thread at the village pump.|
Bureaucrats who fail to perform at least one action associated with the bureaucrat usergroup during a calendar year and fail to invoke the safe harbor for retaining bureaucrat privileges shall be de-bureaucrated by a steward at Meta.
- Closing a WP:RFA (or RFB) proceeding that is not closed early per WP:SNOW, WP:NOTNOW, or candidate withdrawal, as a non-bureaucrat can handle those 3 types of closures.
- Extending the time of closure at an WP:RFA (or RFB) proceeding
- Promoting someone to the administrator or bureaucrat status
- Re-promoting of someone to administrator status who had previously resigned it
- Denying re-promotion of someone to administrator status who had previously resigned it, or determining that someone has resigned administrator status "under a cloud" and must seek WP:RFA to regain it.
- Participating in a bureaucrat discussion
- Assigning of the bot status to an account
- Removing of bot status from an account
- Refusing to assign bot status from an account approved at WP:BRFA
- Closing a Requests for BAG membership
- Renaming an account
- Declining a request to rename an account
- January 1, 2009 - December 31, 2009: Any bureaucrat who performs at least one qualifying action during this period of time is considered active and shall retain their bureaucrat status.
- January 1, 2010 - January 15, 2010: Any bureaucrat who is considered inactive for the prior calendar year may invoke the safe harbor (see below) by indicating they wish to remain a bureaucrat.
- January 16: Any bureaucrat who is inactive and has failed to invoke the safe harbor shall have their bureaucrat status removed. All other userrights they hold shall remain intact.
A bureaucrat who fails to perform at least one of the actions listed above during a calendar year may invoke a safe harbor by expressing their intent to continue as a bureaucrat during the safe harbor time period.
Re-promotion to bureaucrat status
Any bureaucrat who loses their status as a result of this process may regain it by applying through the normal manner.
Transition (for 2009 only)
This table was compiled on July 28, 2010. The last log event and last edit dates are derived from the Steward activity monitor. Log events include renaming using Special:RenameUser, user rights changes (of any sort) using Special:UserRights, or bot flagging using the now-deprecated Special:MakeBot. The middle column, manually derived from user contributions, lists the date of each bureaucrat's last edit to the Bureaucrat's noticeboard. Where a bureaucrat has not contributed to the noticeboard in 2010 but has commented in a bureaucrat discussion or updated their status as a bureaucrat since their last contribution to the noticeboard, this is indicated in a footnote.
|Bureaucrat||last log event||last contribution||last edit|
|The Rambling Man||20100716||20100603||20100728|
- Please note that my position is a fluke / anomaly. This chart was compiled during an unusual short burst of activity. For various unpleasant reasons, I've been pretty inactive for the last few months and sadly anticipate that continuing for a good while. --Dweller (talk) 10:15, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
