I'm assuming admins should unflag themselves when they're done. Should non-admins report back when they're done? --Bequw τ 05:54, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Administrators should always remove the flood flag once they are done using it. Non-administrators should just message one of the administrators on their talk page when they need the flood flag taken off. There is no need to for them to report back here when they are done, as it could be very easy for them to message an active administrator to have it taken off. Razorflame 06:12, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Comments triggered by first request[edit]

Moved from WT:RFFF#Little known abbreviations

Let's try out a request to see how it goes (Bequw (talkcontribsrights))

  • Using AWB to convert "cf." to "compare".
  • WT:Todo/obtuse abbr contains page list
  • There's about 2k words, so at 10/min that would take several hours. Let's call it a day and I can unflag myself when I'm done.

--Bequw τ 05:52, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Would you also change "Cf" to "Compare", capitalized? If so, I'm glad to second this.​—msh210 16:16, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
Yes. I'd also handle those with and without periods and the French version (cfr.). --Bequw τ 17:14, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
Okay. So I seconded the nomination, above. (Conditionally, yes, but the condition is being met.) That means that, according to the above-listed procdure, which was authored by Bequw himself and has not yet met with any consensus, Bequw can have the flag. That does not seem to me to mean that he actually can have the flag. Anyone want to weigh in on this? We need a procedure.​—msh210 (talk) 19:53, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
I'm not really sure, but perhaps we could say two admins, besides the nominator if they're an admin, have to approve it? I'm not really sure. I can see reasons why a streamlined version would allow us to get more done, and reasons why too little caution could result in an enormous mess. In any case, I support this motion as well. -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 14:24, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
If needs be, I support this as well. Perhaps we should set up a WT:WL-type page, but with a minimum of say 48-hours between the request being made and the request being granted. Thryduulf (talk) 21:49, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
I've put in both suggestions. I hope that there are sufficient admins watching this page to make the two admins requirement painless. As both new requirements have been met, I think I'll take the FF out for a test drive. --Bequw τ 23:53, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
I figure that it should be at least two days since the administrators give approval for the flag, not two days since the start of the request, but that's just me. Razorflame 23:56, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
I imagine the 48 hours is to allow sufficient time for negative opinions. What purpose would it serve to have it be 48 +
