I was poking around and clicking on links (you know how it goes on the interwebz) and I ended up on one of your blogs and I started thinking (dangerous for me to do, I know).
From what I have observed, the community seems to be doing well and is stable, and guessing based on looking at your contributions, you haven't needed to intervene recently. I know the goal of you stepping in to help out our community was for our community to be stable and more friendly, and I feel as if this has been accomplished. Recently, I have seen some talk about wanting to add more admins, so I was wondering if you thought we were ready for you to add Bureaucrat Rights back to our wiki so that we could manage on our own again.
As the first bureaucrat in a while, my recommendation would go to Liberkhaos. He seems to be the most consistently active admin at any given time, and is well involved with the community.
Trellar: I don't know where you are in terms of making staffing decisions on this wiki, but we need attention. Preferably, we need to re-add bureaucrat rights so that more admins can be added. We have wonderful admins, but very few are able to spend much time on the wiki and I think we are suffering because of it. If you are actively observing the site and feel we are still not ready, please work with the current admin team to find at least 2-3 more admins who can supplement the existing staff, and look at deleting admins/chat mods who are not actively participating.
Thanks for any immediate assistance you can provide.
I've recently been having some technical issues in chat, and Liber reccomended that I should talk to you!
Basically, for the last 4-5 days, lots of weird things having been going on with my chat (it doesn't seem like anyone else is experiencing the same issues). Firstly, a lot of my messages in chat haven't been posting, and when they do post, I often can't see them on my screen. Other people say they can see them.
Early on when this first started, I would sign in and out of chat randomly, but without the window closing. This happened on numerous browsers, so I doubt it had something to do with my PC.
Other issues include extreme lag, me having to refresh for chat to update, and messages not popping up automatically, leading to m having to scroll down to see new messages.
The trouble is that this has happened on 3 different wi-fi networks, dotted all over the UK! Either this is an issue with my account, or something very bad is going on with chat and it's only affecting me...for some reason!
The user 'Abuse filter' is an account used by the Abuse Filter Extension. The extension is enabled on this wiki to help cut down on spam and other un-wanted things such as bad language, and when it was enabled it automatically gave 'Abuse filter' administrator rights to block users if they trigger a spam filter which is configured to do so. The account itself is harmless and you don't need to worry about it :)
