Suppressions on Commons[edit]

Please do not perform suppressions on this wiki. These actions are only reserved for the 6 local oversighters and certain Wikimedia Foundation staff. Thank you. odder (talk) 21:38, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

@Odder: The suppressions were performed as part of a series of 10-15 such edits for an individual from the stewards's work queue, as stated in the summary. They were non-controversial, on a user's page, edits of the user, and involved privacy issues, and were not particularly the business of any wiki, and completely within scope of the duties of a steward. Rest assured that matters that relate solely to the wiki will not be undertaken. So please just let me get on with my tasks, and please consider that we look to make things easier for our users.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:57, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
@billinghurst: Commons has opted-out of the global sysop system for a reason; we like to manage our internal affairs by ourselves. Your suppressions were not performed as part of an emergency, so you should have contacted a local oversighter or, best, filed a request for oversight on our mailing list. Instead, you decided to perform the actions yourself, which resulted in me having to clean after you, so in the future, please do not undertake tasks that you are not competent enough to perform. Thanks. odder (talk) 05:05, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
Stewards are not global sysops. Yes, Commons does manage its own affairs. I acted within the scope of my allowed tasks as a steward for a crosswiki issue.  — billinghurst sDrewth
@billinghurst: Thank you for recognizing that Commons is able to manage its own affairs. Please also recognize that the oversight policy states that "local oversighters should generally handle local oversighting, when they're available." Commons has 6 local oversighters living in multiple time zones, who are perfectly capable of dealing with non-emergency oversight requests, generally within a few minutes or hours' time.

The OTRS ticket that you processed was not an emergency, and according to the policy, oversight actions relating to this ticket should have been left to local Commons oversighters. You have not contacted either myself or, as far as I know, any other oversighters with regards to this issue, despite the global policy's clear instruction to do so.

In future, please do not ignore the policy and leave Commons suppressions in the hands of Commons oversighters; you can reach us either over IRC or by writing to Thanks in advance for following long-standing procedures, odder (talk) 17:58, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

@Odder: The policy continues with the statement Stewards may perform local oversighting in emergencies, during crosswiki oversighting, or if there are no local oversighters available and as I have stated this falls under the second of the three during crosswiki oversighting. So I ignored no policy, and in fact was compliant to the policy (was clearly annunciated in the suppression statement), and I stand by the fact that this was within policy for a non-controversial set of removals requested by the user on their user pages over many wikis.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:50, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
