Do we really need this noticeboard anymore?Edit

  1. Renaming of usernames are nowadays Stewards and/or Global Renamers' work (-> m:SRUC)
  2. Requests for bot status are always handled at Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot
  3. For granting new administrators after elections, how can't this be done by just pings, pings, pings...?

As far as I am concerned we can shut it down (merge into Administrators' noticeboard)--Ymblanter (talk) 19:06, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
Agree. Lymantria (talk) 20:36, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support. Seems this is no longer useful. Esteban16 (talk) 21:53, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support. Good idea. Regards, ZI Jony (Talk) 10:24, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
I see no need for removing this venue. Relying only on pings is certainly a bad idea, since not everyone has enabled them necessarily, and AN is crowded enough so that it is probably an even less efficient way to get attention than a ping/direct talk page message. On top, WD:RENAME redirects here and this is the venue where users find a convenient link to request a user rename (see the info box at the top of this page). Recently, we even used this noticeboard during the transition period of the interface administrator flag introduction, not impossible that other such uses may arise in the future. What is the motivation behind this request, has the very existence of this page caused any trouble? --Vogone (talk) 17:01, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
@Vogone: you’ve good point and this page not trouble, but we talking about merge into AN not a redirect. Remane redirects will be appear also AN top. Regarding interface administrator flag users may apply at Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Interface administrator. Regards, ZI Jony (Talk) 05:41, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

Flooder flag for swapping qualifiersEdit

Hello! May I get the flooder flag to quickly swap represents (P1268) with parliamentary group (P4100) on candidacy in election (P3602) statements that I have made on Canadian politicians? ~1800 edits to go. (or on User:EbeBot - Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot/EbeBot point 3) Ebe123 (talk | contributions) 21:07, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

@Ebe123: Flood flag granted. Please indeed stick to "statements that [you] have made on Canadia politicians". Also, I would like to ask you to remove the flood flag after you are done with this task. Thank you. --Vogone (talk) 22:32, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
