I have long held the opinion that rights should be granted on an as-needed basis, and that it should be no big deal to grant or remove them. Given my utter lack of activity on Wikinews I think it is time to resign the advanced permissions that I no longer need. --Alexandr Dmitri (talk) 19:11, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
Alexandr, I'd be delighted to see you active again. Are you requesting all rights removed, or just a specific subset? --Brian McNeil / talk 19:21, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
I think the reviewer, accredited reporter (never used and not technically an advanced permission but it is something I don't need) and admin rights are the only three I have and no longer need. --Alexandr Dmitri (talk) 10:14, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
Partiallydone Per that, I've stripped out the actual userrights - admin and reviewer. Are you wanting your accredited reporter's email address shut down, then? If so, that would be Brian's job. Sorry to see you go. Blood Red Sandman(Talk)(Contribs) 10:27, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
I'll get round to dropping you from the email list Alexandr; really sorry to see you go. You contributed a much-needed non-Anglocentric perspective; you "got" the humour around the production of news, and - to boot - wrote great copy. You've most certainly not resigned privs under a cloud, so they would be speedily restored should you ever come back. --Brian McNeil / talk 11:39, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
