I think this greatly summarizes the problem. If Yonidebest had
accepted that the community consensus was that for translating Commons
sysop rights are not necessary, had translated on talk pages, his next
RFA would have probably succeeded. Instead, he started arguing about
the procedure.
I cannot speak for the rest of the community, but I think his behavior
has greatly reduced the communities trust in him. Which is a pity,
because it will mean that if he tries to regain adminship again, it is
likely to fail again.
