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.

Demotions in process

There are no active demotions.

Boxy technically hit the four-month mark on Wednesday, but I just poked his talk page, so the official week starts now. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 00:13, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

You basically shot an old, but very well loved dog. Ugh. --  AHLGTG 18:30, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for always being there Boxy, during the best and worst of times. For what it's worth, I probably wouldn't have been able to do the years of work I did in admin without you being the rock of the team for those years. I won't forget the work you did. Thanks for it all. A ZOMBIE ANT 07:12, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

Dear lord. Miss you box! Come back, before there's just me left. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 18:24, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
