Note: Modeled after existing process at Wikimedia Commons, Commons:Administrators/De-adminship, and existing Policy for administrator access on Meta.


As with the policy for administrator access on Meta, inactive Wikiquote administrators (including those holding bureaucrat, checkuser and oversighter privileges) will have their rights removed. An "inactive admin" is one who has made zero edits on Wikiquote in over two (2) years.

However if an admin places a message on the administrators' noticeboard stating that they will be away for a period and giving an intended return date, then no action should be taken over inactivity until two months after that date.

De-adminship process as a result of inactivity[edit]

  1. A notice must be placed on the inactive admin's talk page linking to this policy and explaining that admin rights may be lost. Another notice should also be placed on their user talk page at English Wikipedia. An email should also be sent.
  2. If there is no response from the admin requesting retention of rights as required by the notice within 30 days, the rights will be removed.
  3. If the admin responds to the notice as required but then fails to make five edits to Wikiquote within the period of six months starting at the time of the notice, the rights will be removed without further notice.

Administrators who have lost admin rights through inactivity but who expect to become active again may re-apply through the regular process.
