While the matter is still hot I would like to remind you all that We are not doing this to get new admins. As Nan-ch asked about if having many admins can harm the wiki? Yes, it can in my opinion. This wiki has being doing great with the number of admins it had. DP and Deva been constant active and kept wiki in order. I do not care what happens to the in-active members and if they want to come back or not cause our wiki already has admins who can hold on their own. I understand how everyone feel that a person who has less edits and contribution then them has higher position and is been in-active for so long. You have every right to be angry but they also have their right to keep their position. Put yourself in their shoes and understand their sitution.

I agree with Jade. If they do not follow through on their responsibilities as admins, they shouldn't be admins. Nobody's banning them from editing here, so it's not a huge deal to remove privileges that they clearly don't use, or in some cases clearly do not want. Admins should be around to help out, and if they aren't helping, they shouldn't be admins.

Also, Jade left out the [[User:Kazuya2070|Founder]] of the wiki who seemed to have a falling out with many of the first users here, and left to edit other websites (Links from his edits to his own page are inactive). All 12 of his edits are solely to user pages, and he is obviously not coming back to help in any way.

From reading the rest of this forum, I've seen the argument "It doesn't hurt to have them as admins" brought up a lot. But, since these users have gone inactive, the rules of the site have changed, and they could potentially come back and make admin-level edits that are harmful by our current standards. Especially if they come back randomly with no notice and just begin editing.

While I do think it's wrong of the admins to be inactive, I think we should also be a bit forgiving in how we remove their power. If we remove their powers, and then in a year, they come back requesting their admin powers back, their should be a process to do so. If they assure us that they have read the rules of the wikia again (in order to check for ones they've forgotten or have changed) and then make a couple hundred edits to prove they are serious about returning, we should give them their powers back. We shouldn't need to re-elect or talk to them in a forum as long as they can prove to the other admins that they are back to help for real.

Forums: Index → Site Problems →  Inactive Administrators and Bureaucrats
Note: This topic has been unedited for 2659 days. It is considered archived - the discussion is over.

Problem

As you can see after you look at the Special:WikiActivity for days, weeks, even months. You will notice that there are only 3 bureaucrats that usualy edit and work on the articles from this wiki.

Those are User:DancePowderer, User:Yatanogarasu and User:MasterDeva.

We have Special:ListUsers/sysop 8 administrators and 6 of them are bureaucrats.

As it can be seen here in the statistics for most main edits, there are bureaucrats that haven't edited an article for a long while. Examples are User:Mugiwara Franky who already said well enough that he will not be active here anymore and won't edit. So his rights as a sysop should have been taken away a long while ago.

User:Justyn has very very few edits. And hasn't edited on this wiki ever since the year 2008! I wonder why is he still a bureaucrat as well. He has done nothing for the last 3 years!

User:BattleFranky202 has not edited an article for 88 days. Even if he logged in 9 days ago. Not editing an article, which should be one of the most important responsibilities for a bureaucrat is not being done.

I understand the case about kazuya since he/she is the founder of this wiki. I'm not sure if it is even possible to strip him/her of his/her rights.

All of the users named don't seem to have done their job well enough to deserve their rights as bureaucrats on this wiki so I believe we should replace them with others. {C   リ チ ャ ー ド   Strong Fist «ℑ» «ℜ» «✩» «☯» Mornin'! ™21:49/11/Dec/2011 (UTC) 

Discussion

Well said.

Yeah, totally agree.. Admins should be active and participate at everything.. It seems that only those 3 are active.. And before that MasterDeva was inactive, so it was only 2 admins.. The others are really inactive. LPKWhat?21:52,12/11/2011

I agree. The inactive administrators should be stripped of their title and give it to more deserving people. Maybe some of the reason against it is if the users come back. You can't be inactive for that many days and expect to still be an admin. There are several people who are quite dedicated to this wiki and deserve to have their hard work rewarded.Dmurray1031 22:04, December 11, 2011 (UTC)

Nothing like a good nonissue, is there? I really don't see why this is a problem. The way I see it, someone should only be stripped of adminship if they do something to deliberately harm the wiki, and none of them have done that. Then again, now that something as completely harmless as this has been brought to the light, you guys will probably start crowing for something to be done about it. How does finding this out affect your activity on the wiki as opposed to before you knew?Ask yourselves, what are those people doing to the wiki that they deserve to be stripped (note that I used present tense)? And being inactive isn't a good enough reason. Just think, if this were brought up maybe only a month or two ago, Deva would be out of a job the way you guys are talking. This issue was harmless, and now that one person decided to have a problem with it, that just creates more problems.DancePowderer Talk 22:43, December 11, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah.. I mean.. If it isnt a good reason to take the admin postion from a user that havent edited since 2008 then what is? I dont actually have a huge problem about it, but now that is on the table I should bring my opinion.. LPKWhat?01:06,12/12/2011

There is nothing wrong with them. The wiki needs active admins, so if the active ones are too few, we nominate new ones, but the inactive admins (who are the same of inactive users) still remain trustworthy, if they will come back (like Deva) they'll continue to provide their help like they did in the past, nothing more. Stripping the admin rights should be done only when the users become untrustworthy or goes against the wiki's good. I understand your logic, but it's not a problem as it seems, this happen on other wikis as well. Moreover there is one problem in doing what you ask, you can't demote a bureaucrat, only Wikia' Staff can do that. leviathan_89 01:20, 12 December, 2011 (UTC)

I see. And the fact that you can strip the position of an admin is basically out of the list, cause they only have to vandalize to get their position off, and not if they are not paying attention to this wiki at all.. LPKWhat?01:32,12/12/2011

Just to be clear, you cannot demote a bureaucrat but an "admin only" can be demoted by a bureaucrat like DP. leviathan_89 01:55, 12 December, 2011 (UTC)

Here's an idea: let's ask these inactive admins to see if they want to return to help edit anymore. If not (or if they remain silent) then we remove their admin status. Yata Talk to me 02:05, December 12, 2011 (UTC)

Sounds good.. LPKWhat?02:13,12/12/2011

Then let's ask, and if we don't receive a respond in 7 days (or some other timelimit that you guys want), then we remove them and give their positions to some other editors: that would lead to a new forum opening for voting and debating.

As a suggestion for the future, if an admin decides to be inactive for an extended period of time (like 2-3 months) and still wishes to maintain their status, they should put a notification on their user page beforehand. Does it sound good? Yata Talk to me 02:17, December 12, 2011 (UTC)

It's the right thing to do, yeah nice. LPKWhat?02:19,12/12/2011

Set the timelimit at a month but in the meantime I think Two More ADMINS should be approved can someone possibly make a nomination section. If so my votes go to LPK and Levithan Tuckyd 02:41, December 12, 2011 (UTC)

The month is fine. But this isn't about looking for new admins. This has to do with the admins who haven't been active for some time.DancePowderer Talk 03:12, December 12, 2011 (UTC)

As DP said, this is not about getting new admins. This wiki already has enough admins. It is true that those listed about in the list of In-Active Admins are little at fault but its not upto use to decide to give them a second chance or not, they deserve it for the contribution they have given to this wiki. They were the one who shaped this wiki to what it is now and we must appreciate their work. A month notice sounds fair and if they do not reply or say that they can't be active anymore then active admins will take action. Again, we don't need new admins. Monkey.D.Me 03:29, December 12, 2011 (UTC)

This sounds pretty good to me, if they don't want the position, or if they are never gonna use it, then they can forfeit their titles. As for current admins, they are doing a damn good job, so we dont really need any more right now. PX15|What's up?|3:32 12/Dec/2011 UTC 

I fail to understand why we need to demote them...If the other admins decide that they need more help than we'd elect new admins, but demoting them for the sake of demoting them seems a bit pointless.  Fanta Talk  09:02, December 12, 2011 (UTC)

Exact same thoughts as Panda. sff9 10:13, December 12, 2011

Sounds reasonable.. Let Yata leave them a message though, and we'll see how it goes. If they dont answer then we'll see what to do.. LPKWhat?11:32,12/12/2011

Erm.. just gonna ask.. will it hurt the OP wiki if we have lots of admins..?? I mean if we need new admins .. just elect. We don't have to strip other users just to give their position to others.                     ●๋•Nacchy●๋• 12:55, December 12, 2011 (UTC)

I find it a little disturbing in myself to see that we have an admin that has fewer edits than most of the active users here. Two of the inactive admins left this wiki. I can call that betraying their position and running away from responsabilities. I see it this way: In a bussiness, if you do nothing, you get fired or get lower in position. They have become admins for editing and doing something on the wiki and they don't do it while others work their ass off. Its unfair, truly unfair to see this kind of thing. An admin working really hard at editing and one does not, becomes inactive and still has the same rights! Are you so lazy to demote them. Not for the sake of demoting, but for showing that an admin on this wiki edits and has some standards. I don't see how admins such as Mugiwara Franky will come back to edit. As you can see in my link about the sysop list, Battle Franky logged in just yesterday! But I see that he has done nothing in regard to what his responsabilites as an admin are.  リ チ ャ ー ド   Strong Fist «ℑ» «ℜ» «✩» «☯» Mornin'! ™13:32/12/Dec/2011 (UTC) 

Log in, means log in Wikia's network, so he could just be logged in another wiki or just come to take a look (through cookies Wikia will remember you if you don't log out, so if he visited any wiki under Wikia, it will results as a "log in"). For what I know he moved to One Piece Wikki. The admins with few edits are probably those at the early days of the wiki. If the main problem is having them in the list of admins, then we can simply categorize users, many wikis do that, like make a category for the active admins and one for non-active users, this way it's easy to find an admin for new users. leviathan_89 16:19, 12 December, 2011 (UTC)

Rici, you're acting like they're committing some kind of crime by not showing up. There is no obligation here. They are allowed to work for a bit and then leave. People have lives, things change. There is nothing wrong with keeping them there. Anyone who can read will clearly see that they are inactive due to their last login and edit dates. Sometimes they leave and come back. Sometimes they don't. It's not something to make a huge deal about. I think we really don't need to delve into this any further, since I still see no overarching issue here.DancePowderer Talk 16:28, December 12, 2011 (UTC)

Its my way of seeing against yours. So I don't think I will be able to change your opinion. Yata said that he'll send them a message asking if they still wanna be admins. I just told you my opinion and Levi, if it comes to them keeping their rights. I think we should really do such a thing. Even now, it is a great idea.   リ チ ャ ー ド   Strong Fist «ℑ» «ℜ» «✩» «☯» Mornin'! ™16:47/12/Dec/2011 (UTC) 

I get that they aren't harming us at all, but the fact of the matter is, if they aren't coming back, then do they really need their positions? Think of it as a clean up or an update, and not like firing people. Like we said before, we will ask them what they want, and if they don't respond or don't care, we will remove their admin rights. I don't really see how this is a big deal anyways.  PX15|What's up?|16:55 12/Dec/2011 UTC 

Well there is no real point in mantaining them or removing them! It's all about their opinion anyways. Yata is going to send them a message if they don't want to remain then we strip them if they wan't to remain then we atleast should ask them to contribute more if they don't! Let's wait yata's response   MJ  AHEM what do you want?    17:00 12/Dec/2011 (UTC)

The amount of edits isn't the only thing admins are judged on, and even if they were then the one with the most edits on this wiki is still MF, who also is an admin...anyways i agree with Panda, I see no use for demoting them and I believe we should just leave the admin status as some kind of honorific title. (It doesn't hurt to leave it, does it?) The Humaniod Typhoon Talkco

Hey, here is a link for the wikipedia admin definition: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Administrators I know this may not be how our wiki operates, but it says that admins must lead by example and fulfill their administrative duties. While I appreciate the service they have given, these unactive admins are no longer doing this in my opinion. Just a thought.  PX15|What's up?|17:06 12/Dec/2011 UTC 

The thing is there is nothing wrong with having those admins, even if they are inactive, maybe we can demote some (like Justyn...?) but not the ones who have contributed on this wiki to make the wiki as big as it is today. As I said, we should leave at least some of them as a honorific title. (btw PX, you should make your signature into a template, since it's a bit confusing on the source mode) The Humaniod Typhoon Talkco

Wikipedia is not Wikia so that definition isn't valid. SeaTerror 17:47, December 12, 2011 (UTC)

So we are talkin about 2 admins.. Justyn and BattleFranky.. Justyn is a bureaucrat...

  • I get what DP is saying, like they didnt do anything 'bad' to strip their position.. But it doesnt hurt really if we actually sent them a message to see if they are gonna return. Leave Yata sent them messages and then we'll see whats going on..
  • About the fact that they may be active and dont edit at all shows that they dont care about this wiki anymore, and want to just keep that position for ever. BattleFranky was asked by Yazzy back in September if he wants to keep the sysop position and he said 'yes, im active now'.. His last edit is back at Semtember.. LPKWhat?18:31,12/12/2011

While the matter is still hot I would like to remind you all that We are not doing this to get new admins. As Nan-ch asked about if having many admins can harm the wiki? Yes, it can in my opinion. This wiki has being doing great with the number of admins it had. DP and Deva been constant active and kept wiki in order. I do not care what happens to the in-active members and if they want to come back or not cause our wiki already has admins who can hold on their own. I understand how everyone feel that a person who has less edits and contribution then them has higher position and is been in-active for so long. You have every right to be angry but they also have their right to keep their position. Put yourself in their shoes and understand their sitution. Monkey.D.Me 18:54, December 12, 2011 (UTC)

Damn sig, gotta fix that stupid thing......anyways, I don't really care about edits or anything, these people are no longer fulfilling their obligations as admins, no matter what type of wiki or wikipedia we are. PX15|What's up?|19:40 12/Dec/2011 UTC 

Discussion 2

I'm bringing this up, because this is an issue that need to be resolved.

We have 8 admins. 6 of them are not active, or ignoring this wiki. We have only two active admins. That had been the way for almost an entire year. User:Mugiwara Franky stated that he will not be editing on here anymore, and moved to his own One Piece wikkii. User:YazzyDream is active on other wikis, such as this wiki. User:MasterDeva edit on here just once, every few months, but do not do his responsibilities as an admin. User:BattleFranky202 never come on this wiki. He do check this wiki, although not often.

We have let them be inactive for too long. I believe that this is the time to decide whether to strip all of the inactive admins of their rights or let them keep their rights.

I also have a suggestion, we can give them two weeks to a month to come back and start taking up their responsibilities as admins, as they should be doing, and if they do not come back within the time limit, we strip them of their rights.

Thoughts on this?  Jademing  Talk   22:37, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

Well... This matter again... It has no use to deadmin them, but leaving them also has no use at all. So it's all about preferences. Personaly I think they once deserved their title, so to deadmin them just seems a bit unrespectful to me. But once again, this is a matter of preferences. The Humaniod Typhoon Talkco


I agree with Jade. If they do not follow through on their responsibilities as admins, they shouldn't be admins. Nobody's banning them from editing here, so it's not a huge deal to remove privileges that they clearly don't use, or in some cases clearly do not want.
