    To demote an inactive bureaucrat, it must be done through community consensus. Bureaucrat Menara has not edited since August 28, 2013 though with notice of inactivity only till September 21, 2013.

    Comment "aye" if you support this demotion.

    (You can basically skip down to the conclusion for the basic summary of it if you don't have time/don't want to read this "how-to" guide)

      • There are 943 content pages. Then there's 943 pages out of 51,555 pages that are considered Shortpages/articles marked with a stub. Completed.
