Please allow English Wikiversity custodians to use mass-delete (nuke)
Closed, ResolvedPublicRequest


Hello, I'm a custodian in the English Wikiversity, and I'm writing this behalf of the community. The current configuration of English Wikiversity does not allow custodians (equivalent to admins in other projects) to use mass-delete (nuke). It is only available to our bureaucrats in the current settings. Many Wikimedia projects allow their admins to use mass-delete (nuke), and we aim to restore this standard configuration.

Local discussion:

The suggestion was made by myself. There were no objections, and 4 different custodians (admins) including myself have agreed. I look forward to hearing from the system admins.

Since all bureaucrats are also custodians, it makes sense to remove nuke permissions from this group. I would like to hear others' opinions on this matter.
