@Kharkiv07 and Worm That Turned: Tristanb shouldn't have been on this list because of the edits he made yesterday. Graham87 12:55, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
Well spotted. I have restored the rights. WJBscribe (talk) 13:00, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
Aaaah! Thanks Graham, I hadn't spotted that. WormTT(talk) 13:03, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
Sorry! Missed that! Kharkiv07 (T) 14:04, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
Update Missed crats 1 October 2015 grace period is over ? [1] and this remove adminship from Vanish Rkitko per [2] deletion of Talk with disappeared. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:34, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
Bureaucrats cannot remove Bureaucrat user-right, only add it. Requests need to be made to stewards (I think!). As for Rkitko, I am restoring that talk page, but until he has been away for 1 year, or unless he requests removal of sysop right, it should remain under current rules.

We're awaiting technical support for the bureaucrat activity table and then activity requirement notices will be sent. So the grace period is still ongoing. –xenotalk 14:49, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

Resysoping/Un-desysoping: User:El_C[edit]

Greetings, everyone. A routine bot-post on my talk page has brought to my attention changes in the resysoping policy. I know I sound like a broken record, but I continue to make read-only use of my admin flag throughout my research; and broken record'ly also, returning in any capacity is never precluded.

...So, since having taken my extended (-extended) sabbatical here, every annually-or-so, I would write some version of the above, and usually within less than a day or so, a bureaucrat would automatically either, if late resysop, or if early, un-desysop, me. Well, this time I'm early! What I'm getting at is: if the most recent changes to the resysop policy somehow resulted in effectively removing this (auto-confirm) flexibility from bureaucrats' discretion, please let me know. Undiplomatically put: I'm more than happy to perform a few admin maintenance tasks if it is deemed necessary, but note that that would be a symbolic gesture only, because if given a choice, my priority at this time, is to spend that time doing research (to make clear, a motivation which entirely born of my own present-circumstances and is in no way a comment on anything here whatsoever).

Anyway, as always (and longwindedly, for once!), much, much love to all my friends and colleagues, El_C 21:46, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for checking in. The bot has noted your activity and removed you from its inactive list. WJBscribe (talk) 10:53, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
