''There are no active demotions.''
To cut to the chase, '''I'm resigning both as a 'crat and sysop ''effective 23:59 November 30th, 2018'''''. I plan to process my own demotion at that time and will not be a candidate in the resulting 'crat election.

I know this will come as an unexpected surprise to most of you, which is why I'm announcing it now rather than at the last moment, but hopefully it's not ''too much'' of a surprise to anyone. After all, [http://wiki.urbandead.com/index.php?title=User:Aichon&diff=2324729&oldid=2318179 I stopped playing the game well over a year ago], so it was really only a matter of time. And after [http://wiki.urbandead.com/index.php?title=User:Aichon/Announce&diff=prev&oldid=2350299 I very nearly quit earlier this year], which [http://wiki.urbandead.com/index.php?title=User_talk%3AAichon&diff=2350938&oldid=2349665 some of you noticed] at the time, the writing has kinda been on the wall.

My running for 'crat in this last election—despite my six-year tradition of withdrawing from every election—is a way for me to perform one final act of service to the wiki before I bow out for good. So for those of you on Discord and elsewhere who have been wondering what changed and why I decided to run in the election this time, now you know.

Once my term is up, I'm gone, so now's the time to hit me up (on [[User_talk:Aichon|my talk page]]) for assistance with any pet projects you may have on the wiki or whatnot. This may also be the time to push through some [[A/PM]] applications. Just sayin'. ;)

UD has been a part of my life for nearly a decade now, and it's been both my privilege and pleasure to serve the wiki community for the vast majority of that time. It's encouraging to see the wiki being continually maintained, not just by a small team of sysops, but also by an active team of regular wiki users who are routinely fixing formatting, updating danger reports, answering questions, and engaging with one another on talk pages in an effort to improve the wiki as a whole. Keep up the good work, all!<!--

Finally, to the members in the various cabals, shadow organizations, conclaves, and other groups-which-shall-not-be-named to which I belong (the five I can think of off the top of my head, plus any I may be forgetting), I trust that you all know what we must do now that Bob is finally out of the picture. Thankfully, Stelar is one of us and is more than capable of continuing our work.--> {{User:Aichon/Signature}} 18:52, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for always being there Boxy, during the best and worst of times.

I have always said that I wanted to fill my spot as long as the community wants me to hold the buttons, but frankly I am not sure that is much of a "community" left to evaluate my conduct, other than a few fellow forgotten sys-ops still walking the dusty halls and occasionally throwing a switch. I haven't played UD in a long while, I've got plenty of other things to do now, and it is probably best to let it go while there is still a greater fool staying around longer than I do.

As far as my wiki history goes, I think I have done well enough, but I will leave it to others to write my eulogy rather than to bathe myself in stinking self-praise on the way out.

This page is for system operators to request a demotion of status, or for enaction of demotion due to long-term inactivity. The act of demotion is restricted to those with bureaucrat status, and as such system operators will need to request their demotion here.

Guidelines for Demotion Requests

Request

System operators who wish to request demotion must consider these things before applying.

  • Reason for demotion - As demotions cannot be reversed unless the user goes through the promotion process again, the user is asked to make sure that they are making the correct decision when applying for demotion.
  • Effects of demotion - Demotions may necessitate additional action, such as in the case of a Bureaucrat being demoted, which triggers an immediate by-election to fill their seat for the remainder of their term.

After a system operator has submitted his or her demotion request, the active Bureaucrats will review it, and after reaching a unanimous decision, choose to either demote the system operator or deny his or her request. After action has been taken, the request will be moved to the archive.

Inactivity

Crystal Clear app xmag.png main article: Policy Text

  • A sysop that hasn't made any edit in four months will be warned, on their talk page, by a Bureaucrat, that they face demotion of their sysop powers in one week, if they remain inactive.
  • One week after the warning has been placed, dependant on the actions of the sysop, the Bureaucrat will decide whether or not to carry out the demotion.
  • This is to avoid, for example, the unlikely case of a sysop simply making a single edit with the aim of avoiding the demotion.
  • The Bureaucrat is trusted and bound to make a fair decision, and not to demote a sysop who clearly demonstrates a return to activity on the wiki.
  • Any demonstrable abuse of this power by a Bureaucrat, however unlikely, could (as with any other abuse of specific powers) be grounds for a Misconduct case.
  • If the sysop makes no response at all to the warnings, they must be demoted.
