    To contact bureaucrats to alert them of an urgent issue, please post below.
    For sensitive matters, you may contact an individual bureaucrat directly by e-mail.
    You may use this tool to locate recently active bureaucrats.

    The Bureaucrats' noticeboard is a place where items related to the Bureaucrats can be discussed and coordinated. Any user is welcome to leave a message or join the discussion here. Please start a new section for each topic.

    This is not a forum for grievances. It is a specific noticeboard addressing Bureaucrat-related issues. If you want to know more about an action by a particular bureaucrat, you should first raise the matter with them on their talk page. Please stay on topic, remain civil, and remember to assume good faith. Take extraneous comments or threads to relevant talk pages.

    If you are here to report that an RFA or an RFB is "overdue" or "expired", please wait at least 12 hours from the scheduled end time before making a post here about it. There are a fair number of active bureaucrats; and an eye is being kept on the time remaining on these discussions. Thank you for your patience.

    To request that your administrator status be removed, initiate a new section below.

    Time to hand in my admin hat. (Marasmusine)

    Sadly I do not think I can be as active as I once was. I am proud to have been a wikipedia administrator for as long as I have - 16 years! I've raised a family of 2 children in that time! A decade ago I was much more involved in administrative tasks but I can't commit the time anymore, I cannot keep up with the minimum editing requirements. The lessons I have learned from my time on Wikipedia have been valuable - assuming good faith, keeping my cool, and so on - traits I have retained as a role as admin in other wikis and online in general. Thank-you to everyone, especially those in the videogame wikiproject.

    Edit: There are still one or two pages that I regularly check for vandalism, vandalism that is particularly targeted towards me, and I have been using the visibility tools to dissuade this. I don't know if it is possible for me to keep that tool? Marasmusine (talk) 19:48, 29 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]

     Done. Unfortunately deletedtext is not available for anyone other than admins. If you need any advanced perms, though, please let us know. Primefac (talk) 19:54, 29 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]
    Okay, thankyou Primefac. Marasmusine (talk) 09:49, 30 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]

    I am being asked to resign adminship. Is it appropriate to request a break? --Ancheta Wis   (talk | contribs) 09:27, 2 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Ancheta Wis, we can desysop you at your request, and according to convention we do not decide at the request point whether the desyop was being done "under a cloud". However, given the circumstances, should you later request the tools back, there would be a discussion as to if these circumstances are "under a cloud". If you comfortable that such a discussion would take place, and that you may not automatically be granted the tools back on request, then I would proceed with the desysop.

    Thank you for explaining, and I trust the process. -- Ancheta Wis   (talk | contribs) 10:01, 2 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
     Done — That's been done for you Ancheta Wis. Enjoy some stress free editing, and thank you for your long service to the community. SilkTork (talk) 10:06, 2 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
