Note: This topic has been unedited for 2687 days. It is considered archived - the discussion is over. Do not add to unless it really needs a response.

Since my admin account appears headed for that big "no edits in forever" in the sky, I was wondering if there could be a way we could mark admins via their level of activity. Maybe if an less than 20 edits in three months, have them listed as inactive, and less than 50 edits in a year have them listed as dead (which could include deadminning... I'm not sure at them moment if I wanna do that). I was also thinking about giving any dead admin undead status if they want it (so that they can be reopped any time they want to, but more quickly go to dead status). What do you guys think about this? It'd give us a way to judge how many admins we REALLY have at any given moment. Discuss.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 12:54, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

Yes. Inactive admins or admins who are make only sporadic edits should be marked in some way. We don't want people who need help picking a random admin from the list only to never get a response. I'm in favor of deopping extreme cases of inactivity and tagging more moderate cases as inactive. It only makes sense, and deopped or inactive admins could always get their regular status back if they return full-time. —rc (t) 00:14, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
Right. Well, since we both care and nobody else does, does it count as "unilateral"?--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 00:19, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
Not that it matters, but it sounds like a good idea to me, just as long as a certain admin is given permanent undead status. Icons-flag-au Sir Cs1987 UOTM. t. c 00:25, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
I'd like to see people retain their status rather than deopping, everyone needs to take time off now and again, and I know loads of Admins who have returned after 6 months inactivity. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
Well, I'm thinking of having it be after a year, not 6 months (I can't recall anyone returning from being deadmin a year), but I DID set up a way for them to be quick re-opped if they're planning to be active again.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 01:22, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
Tis a good idea. I need to know who my current colleagues are, so I can steal their office supplies. I like HGG's idea below of having a proper active admin list too though, because under this system there'll still be a load of inactive admins on the auto-list. --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 07:17, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
I think we need pretty pictures. Something like a graphical representation of how active an admin is, thus allowing users to see the difference between "once a day" admins and "once a week" admins. Maybe something like 5 green bars for admins who are really active, 4 green bars for less active, 3 yellow for even less, 2 yellow for those who went to the store and never came back, and 1 red bar for the deopped admins? I dunno. I just kinda like pictures of stuff, I guess. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 18:04, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
I like Zombie's color-coded homeland security system.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 18:17, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
Homeland security? Psh. I stole the idea from was inspired by Starcraft. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 18:22, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

{{Inactive Sysop}} and {{Former Sysop}} exist already.

I would love to be an undead bureaucrat. You know, walking around all zombie-like, randomly rising from under people and grabbing them, you know, the usual. It increases my effectiveness because even though they never see it coming when I come along, they would be even more surprised then. Dawg.gif » Brig Sir Dawg | t | v | c » 2007.08.04.06:32

We do this.

[1] Except we just list them, instead of making subpages. --Lt. High Gen. Grue The Few The Proud, The Marines 01:31, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Or we just make a couple categories and swap people around when their status changes.

Active Admins - multiple edits in the last week
Semi-Active Admins - edits in the last month
Inactive Admins - no edits in the last month
Dead Admins - no edits in several months
Undead Admins - Zombiebaron

Sure, it could be semi-automated, but a template or two with the categories in them would work fine. If you're an admin and planning to take off for a month or two, you can slap your own category in. Otherwise, there are plenty of people here who could manage to do so if they don't see you in a month or so. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 08/3 19:40

That, plus pictures, and I'm all for. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 21:15, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
