I have been talking with a user who has put together some code elements to add some nice Minecraft -themed graphical customization to the wiki, as well as adding some additional tools/options that are not provided by default. We can always revert any changes I make, if we decide we dont want certain things. However, I am wondering what you think of the idea. The discussion I have been having with this user can be found here.
I lost everything! so sorry I haven't been on in forever laptop like disappeared so it took me a while to get another one and now I lost everything!!!! :( please get back to me soon I need help :( everything is gone, please get back to me when you can!!

In wandering around our policy pages, I stumbled upon an apparent policy regarding inactive administrators here. It appears there was, at one time, a policy in place to revoke admin rights from administrators who had been inactive for quite some time. A span of two-weeks of inactivity was mentioned. Although I personally think just two weeks of inactivity is perhaps a little too soon to remove such rights given the activity levels on our wiki, I do agree with the concept. We currently have several inactive admins in our roster, some are still active on other wikis, and some are now missing from the Wikia network entirely.
I am concerned by the possibility of an individual with malicious intent to gain control of one of these former admin accounts and use the enhanced powers to cause serious damage to the wiki. After doing some investigation, it appears this policy has indeed been used on at least one occasion in the past to remove user rights from an inactive administrator. Is there any possibility we can look into revoking these permissions for some of the former admins who have been missing from all of the Wikia network for more than a year, for example?
On a related note, I have been considering requesting bureaucrat rights for this wiki lately, and I am interested in your opinion on the matter. I can formally request it on the adminship request page if you prefer of course, but I believe the decision would be left directly up to you regardless, seeing as how you are the only bureaucrat who is active nowadays.
Ack. That slipped my mind. We would need a community vote then, with the majority in favor of the removal of a bureaucrat's rights, before submitting a request to Wikia staff. I'm sure the three of us active administrators would likely be on board, but I'm not sure if that would be enough, and we would probably need at least a few votes from our more recently-active members.
I'm not sure it is worth the effort for something that has a slim chance of happening. What do you think?
Yeah. It probably isn't worth the effort. I was just thinking of additional ways we could fill in some security risks when it comes to the threat of hard-to-fix vandalism. Like you said though, it has not been an issue thus far. Let's hope it continues to be a non-issue.
I'm wondering if you could possibly take a look at the Minecraft Wiki:Administrators and Minecraft Wiki:Requests for Adminship articles whenever you happen to have free time. I believe there may be some sections of those articles which are out-of-date and/or may need some revision to reflect changes in members' activity which has occurred on this wiki over the last few years. I don't feel right making changes to those articles which affect the rules that I (and other sysops) are to follow ourselves. It seems more appropriate that a user with bureaucrat status like yourself should be the one to update it.
I'm happy to discuss in more detail if you are interested. -Sitb (talk) 16:48, July 10, 2016 (UTC)
Hi Dragonballgtgoku RHino7898 has requested rollback privileges on our request page. I gave a vote in favor, but I am unable to modify the user rights myself, without bureaucrat status. Would you care to take a look at RHino7898's request when you get the chance?

There's a new rollback request, this time from TheFallenOneGOTH. I've already offered my two cents on the rollback request page, but I thought I would give you a heads up to check it out, in case you aren't already monitoring the wiki yourself. Cheers! -Sitb (talk) 18:48, July 8, 2016 (UTC)
