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


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 promotions page again, the user is asked to make sure that they are making the correct decision when applying for demotion.

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.

  • 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.

he at least this time you gave some. instead of just dropping off the face of the wiki. you will be missed.-- HEY! HANDS OFF MAH BOOBS!   bitch   COBRA!   אמת 11:49, 12 May 2013
Oh, that's brilliant. Another one bites the dust. Fantastic. --Rosslessness 12:09, 12 May 2013 (BST)
Are you also withdrawing from the election? Bob Moncrief EBDW! 17:47, 12 May 2013 (BST)
I think the wiki really needs your say on things, especially since you're one of the few people I trust to offer an unvarnished opinion when something needs to be said. Plus, with almost all of the sysops indicating a lack of interest in one way or another (e.g. I asked for a demotion, Ross asked for a demotion and has indicated he's wanted out for awhile, Rev is largely inactive, boxy is not interested in 'crat any more), your experience will be increasingly beneficial around here. Give it some thought for a day or two, and either Spider or I will follow up with you to ask the question and see if "REASONS" still stand. Aichon 00:55, 13 May 2013 (BST)

C`mon karke... REASONS is not enough for you to ask for a demotion... and if this thrend continues, ima gonna have to ask for my promotion in order to keep this place running --hagnat 01:58, 13 May 2013 (BST)

...into the ground.--Thadeous Oakley Talk 10:34, 13 May 2013 (BST)

Are you certain about wanting to get demoted? Also, what about the current crat election? -- Spiderzed 17:36, 13 May 2013 (BST)

Yeah, pretty sure. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 01:52, 14 May 2013 (BST)

Bye. This place doesn't need but three system operators (8 hour "shifts") these days anyway.-- Son of Sin 06:18, 14 May 2013 (BST)
