Checkuser rights request

Serbian Wikipedia

I request CheckUser access on Serbian Wikipedia:

Would you please at the same time change my bureaucrat status on Serbian Wikipedia down to regular sysop privileges. This is according to the consensus of our community by which our checkusers may concurrently hold admininstrator privileges, but not as bureaucrats. Thank you. Dzordzm 23:51, 24 March 2006 (UTC)[]

CheckUser for Serbian Wikipedia

Millosh on Serbian Wikipedia (sr:Корисник:Милош. In this moment I have 19 votes for and 0 against. I don't think that it is reasonable to wait for more votes. People who didn't vote usually do not vote... The page where people voted is [1] --Millosh 15:28, 25 February 2006 (UTC)[]

According to the policy it isn't possible this. The candidates should have at least 25 votes. -Romihaitza 20:59, 25 February 2006 (UTC)[]

I have 27 votes now. --Millosh 22:43, 26 February 2006 (UTC)[]
28. --Millosh 22:55, 26 February 2006 (UTC)[]
I have 29 votes and I am wandering is Romihaitza fast only when it is possible to give bureaucratized answer? --Millosh 01:24, 28 February 2006 (UTC)[]
I do not like your responds. Being Steward or checkuser is a bureaucratic function. People are expected above all other users to absolutely follow policy. To criticize a user for following policy, especial you in this position is not appropriate.
Do this and I will make you checkUser; put on that vote page [3] by the section of your votes in English that this vote is about the question of may become CheckUser on that wiki.
And write here explicitly that you promise to respect the letter and spirit of the CheckUser Policy. 3 days after you have done that I will make you checkuser --Walter 11:05, 1 March 2006 (UTC)[]
I was talking about one of the essential rules of Wikipedia. After 5 hours of my edit steward told me it is not possible to give me Checkuser permission because I don't have 25 votes; next day I had more then 25 votes and I had to wait three days more to get next instructions. If a person on the position of power (in this case a steward) is able to give a negative answer in 5 hours, (s)he (or any other steward) has to be able to give a positive answer in (similar) reasonable time; otherwise, it is a bureaurcatization of the stewardship. --Millosh 13:01, 1 March 2006 (UTC)[]
I didn't criticize policy, but the exact case of bureaucratization of power (if I want to criticize policy, I would do it on the better place). I don't see anything wrong with the constructive critics of anything related to our project. My rhetoric question was ironic, but I expect that persons elected on the power position do not bureaucratize their position. And this case and this page is very good place for saying that. Also, I expect that my position with Checkuser permission will not be related to my possibility to talk openly about problems in our community. --Millosh 13:01, 1 March 2006 (UTC)[]
I added translation into English (as it affected heading, here is the new link [4]). --Millosh 13:01, 1 March 2006 (UTC)[]
Of course that I will respect the letter and spirit of the CheckUser Policy. --Millosh 13:01, 1 March 2006 (UTC)[]
If you need something more (or if I didn't do something in the right way), please let me know. --Millosh 13:01, 1 March 2006 (UTC)[]
Done, is checkuser. Mailing list request send, added to the list. --Walter 12:20, 6 March 2006 (UTC)[]

Just for the record, Romihaitza was in announced wiki-vacation in that period (from 26th of February till 5th of March). Is still retained in real life. -Romihaitza 20:55, 8 March 2006 (UTC)[]

I request sysop access on project name:

  • Comment: I am an admin in the English wikipedia. I'd like to be an admin in the Bangla wikipedia ( ). Bangla is my native language and I have been trying to promote wikipedia in Bangladesh. Right now, there is only 1 admin in bn wikipedia, and very few users. Therefore, there is no local page for making an admin request, and in the absence of editors, making that request page will not make much of a difference. Thanks. -- 13:37, 26 March 2006 (UTC)[]

Thank you. Ragib 13:38, 26 March 2006 (UTC)[]

Hi! Could you create a page there with your request? You could probably also tell the two existing admins about it as well. Thanks, Jon Harald Søby 17:10, 26 March 2006 (UTC)[]
Thank you. I've created a page on RfA (in general) for bn-wiki (bn:উইকিপেডিয়া:প্রশাসক হওয়ার আবেদন, and created the first request nominating myself. I also mailed one of the 2 admins (Zaheen) about this. Thanks. --Ragib 07:43, 27 March 2006 (UTC)[]
I just want to mention that I had created the page yesterday, but there are really almost no editors working in the bn-wiki right now, so I don't see any vote feasible there. I did contact one of the existing admins yesterday. Thanks. --Ragib 07:48, 28 March 2006 (UTC)[]

Yes, this Wikipedia needs a sysop, but this is the Ewe Wikipedia and the current candidate has not indicated any interest in working in Ewe.

Sindhi Wikipedia

I request sysop access on

Thank you. Aursani 21:47, 25 February 2006 (UTC)[]

You seem to be the only person active on that wiki. It is good that you take interest in that wiki. But I have checked your edits there and you give me the impression that you are not very familiar with how a wikipedia works. Also when there is only one sysop on a wiki that is not very good. In this situation only temporary sysop-access can be granted. I make you temporary sysop for 3 months. Your sysop rights expire on 2006-06-31. After that you must apply again. If your where active, and no complaints about it or there are other users active who support you it can be made definitive. --Walter 14:17, 1 March 2006 (UTC)[]

Azerbaijani Wikipedia

I would like to request sysop access for az:User:Sed on the Azerbaijani Wikipedia:

Comments: Sed would be the first sysop from Republic of Azerbaijan with advanced command of Azerbaijani as his mother language. His knowledge of Azerbaicani is dearly needed to bring in line the system messages, titles and configurations according to contemporary Azeri usage.

Voting Results: So far 3 sysops (ot of total 4) provided their supports for his application, with no objections.

Armenian Wikipedia


Currently there are two sysops at Armenian Wikipedia hy:User:Lilith and hy:User:Toxic, but both of them are not active for a long time (Lilith is inactive since May 9, 2005 and Toxic: since October 26, 2005). Now I request sysop rights at this Wikipedia, because there are many things to be done there: re-translate and translate some system messages, change the content of the Main page (it was last modified on April 26, 2005, because it is protected and none of the admins are active to modify it) and clean-up spam.

Currently I'm sysop at Armenian Wikibooks.

Thank you. Ruben 12:18, 17 February 2006 (UTC)[]

I can not find on the page hy:Wikipedia:Ադմինիստրատոր դառնալու դիմումներ your request to become sysop there. Put there very clear your request in the local language and English and make clear "yes" and "no" headings and wait if there comes any reponds. --Walter 22:45, 17 February 2006 (UTC)[]
The structure of the page is completely incorrect and there is nowhere to place your name. It's said there that you should request sysop rights here. Should I remake the page? --Ruben 06:49, 18 February 2006 (UTC)[]
Yes, please do. That can be a very basic page. Put on it that it is the page for requests for adminship, that you would like to become admin there. And make yes and no heading. Because it is a very small wiki I would say wait 2 weeks. --Walter 09:28, 18 February 2006 (UTC)[]
Done! Btw. hy:User:Lilith is bureaucrat there. --Ruben 11:58, 18 February 2006 (UTC)[]
He is not active since 2005-05-09. That is not good. I have send him an email to ask of he still is intrested in that wiki. --Walter 14:49, 18 February 2006 (UTC)[]
10 days already passed. I think hy:User:Lilith is no more interested in this project. Can you please tell me how was she granted bureaucrat access in this wiki? At the time she was granted bureaucrat access there were too few members there. Thanks. --Ruben 17:59, 27 February 2006 (UTC)[]
Done; user Ruben is now sysop on HY Wikipedia --Walter 12:05, 1 March 2006 (UTC)[]
I suggest that you start a de-sysop and de-bureacrat procedure on HY for hy:User:Lilith for not being active. And put it here after some weeks in the request for removal of access section. --Walter 12:05, 1 March 2006 (UTC)[]
Thanks. --Ruben 12:47, 1 March 2006 (UTC)[]
In the past (some) stewards seems to grant user rights more easy than now it seems. User Lilith should not be made bureaucrat on that wiki. --Walter 13:53, 1 March 2006 (UTC)[]

Can someone explain what happed with my request for admin access to simple.wikibooks? Can I ask for it again? Thanks, Gerard Foley 18:56, 16 February 2006 (UTC)[]

I don't see any community support there… You should note on the page that a vote is needed. Jon Harald Søby 19:01, 16 February 2006 (UTC)[]

But there is no community to give support. Gerard Foley 19:42, 16 February 2006 (UTC)[]

If he needs community support, my vote is given. Simple English Wikibooks has 1 admin at the moment and really needs somebody else to help. I would also voice support to simply make him a Bureaucrat as well, but that is another story and something else to work with. Considerable vandalism is taking place there due to the complete lack of anybody able to police the content, although it appears as though b:simple:User:Michael has been doing some work. b:en:User:Gmcfoley is well known on English Wikibooks, and frankly I would support his nomination as an admin on that project. Certainly it would be useful to have at least another admin on a small project like Simple English Wikibooks that is willing to develop content there as well, including perhaps the Adminship nomination forum? --Roberth 23:18, 16 February 2006 (UTC)[]

Thanks for the words of support. As I said to wikt:simple:User:Cromwellt when he suggested I look for Bureaucrat access to simple.Wiktionary: I don't think we really need a bureaucrat at the moment. I would be happy to do it if it would take the work load of the stewards, but it will probably be a long time before that happens. I check the wiki regularly for vandalism but b:simple:User:Michael has been very fast and usually beats me to it! Gerard Foley 23:50, 16 February 2006 (UTC)[]

Request withdrawn My English is crap and I don't have much interest in the project, b:simple:User:Michael has done a great job so far and there has been very little vandalism, even less that require admin tools to fix. Sorry for wasting peoples time with this. Gerard Foley 23:12, 18 February 2006 (UTC)[]

To stewards : please wait a little, until Hégésippe calms down. We really need him as sysop on FR. Actually he got the better RfA vote ever done on FR. I think he's overreacting to a personal attack, and I hope he'll remove his deadminship request soon. Guillom 06:17, 31 March 2006 (UTC)[]

This is Hégésippe Cormier. I resign adminship on French Wikipedia. Please help me to go far from this project, because I can't accept that a steward, Yann, says that French laws have no importance (copyright violations on French Wikisource). This request was already made by private messages to Jean-Christophe Chazalette and Anthere, but I'm not sure they will accept it, and I WANT to be far from Wikimedia projects. Hégésippe | ±Θ± 21:47, 14 March 2006 (UTC)[]

I see no reason why the will not accept it is that is really what you want. But please put a little note on your user or talk page on FR wikipedia that you request to be de-sysoped. --Walter 23:44, 14 March 2006 (UTC)[]
As a rule of thumb, French stewards should not deal with requests related to the French project. It has nothing to do with refusing, even if I find it a really strange reason to resign. villy 07:55, 15 March 2006 (UTC)[]
Bon, je n'insiste pas, mais pas question pour autant de me servir des « pouvoirs spéciaux » en ce moment. Et je déspprouve qu'on m'ait par deux fois débloqué alors que j'avais choisi de me bloquer indéfiniment. :D Hégésippe | ±Θ± 14:22, 15 March 2006 (UTC)[]
OK, Hégésippe drops his request. Case closed :) villy 16:23, 15 March 2006 (UTC)[]

I request desysop action against en:User:Mikkalai who blocked me without any evidences.Excaliburo 20:35, 19 March 2006 (UTC)[]

With all due respect, stewards do not desysop except if the user requests it, or there's significant community consensus (in fact, the English Wikipedia has no formal de-sysop policies, though the Arbitration Committee can do so.) Ral315 (talk) 02:24, 20 March 2006 (UTC)[]

Commons' sysop policy states "As with the policy for administrator access on Meta, inactive administrators may have their access removed. According to this policy, any sysop inactive on Commons will be desysoped. "Inactive" means no edits in the past 6 months and fewer than 50 edits in the last year. Inactive administrators may re-apply through the regular way". User:CryptoDerk has no edit since 7 August 2005, 21 edit in the last 12 months. Please withdraw his sysop rights - being a bureaucrat on the project, I don't want to do it myself. villy 21:59, 10 March 2006 (UTC)[]

Hi! Please de-sysop and de-bureacrat Lilith as she was inactive since May 2005 and is definitely not interested in this project any more. I told about this to our community and received no objections starting from March 1, 2006. Thanks. Ruben 12:13, 19 March 2006 (UTC)[]

Walter, there is also another sysop Toxic there, who was idle since March 7, 2005, then she logged in on October 26, 2005, made 7 changes and was not seen any more. Do we have to desysop this user too? Ruben 20:10, 19 March 2006 (UTC)[]
She is no bureaucrat. It is because Lilth was the only bureaucrat and inactive that I think it was good to de-sysop that user. But with this one I see no problem. Put a notice on her talk page to ask of she is still interested in that wiki. --Walter 23:40, 22 March 2006 (UTC)[]

Temporary permissions for emergency or technical purposes

Yi Wikipedia

Hello, I request temporary sysop status on the Sichuan Yi edition of Wikipedia. The reason is to edit pages in the "MediaWiki" and "Special" namespaces, especially to increase the font size, as it is set too small to be adequate at the moment.

Requests for Steward acting as Admin Moderator

English Wikibooks

I am requesting some general assistance from some stewards to help moderate a rather heated discussion over deadminship procedures on English Wikibooks. There are several names that have been noted for various reasons to be de-sysoped, and a steward needs to evaluate each of these requests independently for merit and cause. This is not a call to arms or a general Wikimedia community request to join in the fight, but a general request to some 3rd party to help with the moderation of the discussion, and to take action as necessary, preferably from somebody who has experience in moderating heated flame wars. As the actions being discussed are also going to require some sort of Steward intervention as well, this would serve both purposes. An appeal to admins for moderation isn't working because it is admins that are squabbling in this case. --Roberth 17:05, 9 March 2006 (UTC)[]
