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.

Qualifying actions[edit]

  • 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

Process[edit]

  • 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.

Safe harbor[edit]

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[edit]

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)[edit]

All current bureaucrats and all former bureaucrats who did not resign under a cloud shall be deemed to be current bureaucrats for the purpose of this process.

Current activity[edit]

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.
