  • Request bot flag for pl:Wikipedysta:Margosbot. Public anouncement: pl:Wikipedia:Bar#Status bota dla Wikipedysta:Margosbot. I'm inserting new interwiki links to articles. As for now I've put them into over 2000 articles (using regular account). At the moment I've interwikis for next 457 articles. I prepare them offline, and put them using a bot. I'll wait with putting, till I got bot status. Margos 22:55, 22 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Ok, done. However, I prefer a way of working where one first makes some edits with the bot before asking bot status. - Andre Engels 09:05, 24 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Portuguese (pt) version of Wikinews:

Hi! Our recently launched version in Portuguese of Wikinews is currently in need of some other urgent software translations and there is no user with sysop status to change the MediaWiki messages.

So, my question is, can you turn me into an administrator? Because if we keep this way, there will never be someone able to translate the remaing messages (and there are tons of them). My user account there is n:pt:Usuário:Ikescs. The local admin page is n:pt:Wikinews:Administradores. --Ikescs 04:04, 20 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Hello! I am from the Portuguese version of Wikinews. As n:pt:Usuário:Ikescs said we need some sysop so we can finish our work. Would you please promote some of us to sysop? My user account is n:pt:Usuário:Carlosar. The admin page is n:pt:Wikinews:Administradores. Thank you very much. --Carlosar 13:18, 20 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Hi, please give sysop permissions and bureaucrat flag to User e2m, at the portuguese edition of Wikinews, he is a experient admin from the the portuguese wikipedia.
Giving this permission to him, will give us a base to start polls for new admins at the portuguese wikinews and to translate the remaining of the software.
Thank you, Get It 15:49, 20 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Done. Please start a vote for admins and bureaucrats and have e2m take care of any other promotions. --Daniel Mayer 03:12, 21 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Request for Bureaucrat status on Polish Wikinews for pl:User:Adziura. We need a bureaucrat to start the project properly, and he's a respected Polish Wikipedia sysop who is now also active at pl.wikinews. Ausir 21:02, 19 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Done. Angela 21:04, 19 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Also requesting a sysop status on Polish Wikinews for Dariusz Siedlecki. I'm active at pl.wikinews and I care about this project, so I'm sure I won't be a burden. Datrio 21:12, 19 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • I can't do this now that pl has a bureaucrat. Adziura will have to do it. Angela 21:15, 19 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Request for bot flag: "BaluBot" in de.wiktionary -- MichaelDiederich 17:36, 16 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Done. Angela 10:52, 19 Feb 2005 (UTC)


  • As User:Gangleri suggested to me, I request for bot flag on sr: for bot Millbot. General purpose of this bot is synchronizing of Cyrillic, Latin and ASCII Latin pages on sr:. Development of this bot would not be in the way of taking care about interwiki links (even it can do that if there is no other job), but to take care about consistency of sr:. Millbot reports all of it's actions in it's name space. Community approves it (actually, community were waiting for this bot for a couple of months). --Millosh 13:13, 18 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Done. Angela 10:52, 19 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Please kindly grant me bureaucrat status on the Southern Min (Min Nan) Wiktionary (Admin page). Currently no sysop exists there. I am, however, a bureaucrat on the zh-min-nan Wikipedia. My user ID is 2, if it helps. Thanks/merci/danke/arigatô gôzaimasu. A-giâu 11:17, 7 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Please follow the instructions above. Anthere
Hi, I'm not quite sure which part is missing. Please bear with me. So far I've linked to the local admin page, which links back here and does explain what an admin is and can do. It has a null list of admins, plus my name listed as pending. The "large wikis only" requirement does not apply. The language code and project name are in the link. The only thing missing is my user name there (though I did give the user ID, which was previously asked for when I requested sysop status for the Min Nan Wikipedia, probably because of the diacritic in my user name), which is identical to my user name here. Anything else? A-giâu 12:13, 15 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Done. Anthere 21:04, 16 Feb 2005 (UTC)


  • Request for Sysop status on wikipedia in wolof for Yannick Duchesne Thanks ! - Link... 2:34, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Please follow the instructions above. --Daniel Mayer 20:54, 12 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • I just do not understand how 3 people could be listed sysop when the listadmin is empty. Anthere 12:32, 13 Feb 2005 (UTC)
      • Hello Daniel & Anthere, I work in Dakar (Senegal) to promote wolof language on the Net. I know we are not necessarily following the normal path on Wikipedia. However, I would like to have sysop status in order to translate at least the interface and the logo before the promotion in paper and media of Senegal and Gambia... Thanks a lot ! Yannick Duchesne
      • Do you understand what adminship is about? The admins page at wo seems rather confused.
        • Hello, I think you are really new, but I would like to see things get started. So I made you temporarily sysop (3 weeks). Please try to come participate on fr as well so as to understand fully the principles. Thanks and good luck. Anthere
  • Bot status for zh-min-nan:User:Holobot (an interwiki bot) is appreciated. A-giâu 12:00, 8 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • I can't find what code to use. - Andre Engels 14:37, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)
      • It was @zh_min_nanwiki (underscores, not hyphens). Angela 01:47, 14 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Please grant Bot status for WeftBot on pl.wikiquote, I had the authorization of the community. WeftBot already operate on fr.wikiquote. Thank you Weft 12:42, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Please give the interwiki bot no:Bruker:Robbot (operated by Andre Engels) bot status on no.wikipedia. Wolfram 14:30, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Please grant Bot status for NTBot, it will operate only at pt:wiki being its main concern about interwikis — it can change, however, according to local agreement. Nuno Tavares 02:53, 3 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • NTBot was also announced at the portuguese Village Pump version (Esplanada) under the Getbot announce. -- Get It 03:02, 3 Feb 2005 (UTC)


  • Please grant Bot status for RobotSCwikt and FrankC. I already thought it was requested, but it seems as if this did not happen. Both are used to create new words we have prepared in lists. Thank you!--Sabine 08:31, 4 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • I would like to become an administrator for the Punjabi Wikipedia (http://pa.wikipedia.org/). It appears that nobody has really started this and I would like to be able to change things such as the logo (incorrectly transliterated) and help start off the project. Sukh 16:57, 8 Feb 2005 (UTC)


  • I would like to request a temporary bureaucrat status on the Hebrew version of Wiktiniory (http://he.wiktionary.org/), to make some critical changes (Promote active people in the project to a status of sysop, translate the rest of the interface, etc.). I ask for a temporary bureaucrat status because that's what the project need right now. I wish not to stay in this status and only become a sysop after doing the critical changes I have mentioned above. Amitayk 14:59, 7 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Please follow the instructions above. --Daniel Mayer 20:54, 12 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • User rights for "Amitayk@hewiktionary" updated. Opps - sorry, I did't see the link to the vote page. --Daniel Mayer 04:03, 13 Feb 2005 (UTC)


  • I would like to request an emergency revocation of sysop status for קלײנער קעניגל in the Yiddish Wikipedia. He is engaging in inappropriate speedy deletion. He keeps deleting all redirects from titles in different dialects, thereby breaking the links in other articles. In general he does not seem to care about others or their opinions and the democratic process. And being the only permanent sysop on that Wikipedia, he does whatever he likes. Lately, he deleted the Votes for Deletion page. (Without voting on it first, of course) Chaim Zelig Berger 10:13, 2 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • The Portuguese Wikipedia decided new rules to choose burocrats, with these new rules we voted for 3 burocrats here. In this election, the community of portuguese wikipedia decided that Mschlindwein, Muriel and Manuel Anastácio are the new burocrats, and the community decided to revoke the burocrat status of JoaoMiranda. Well, I requested to JoaoMiranda to grant burocrats status for three people above, but he doesn't come to pt.wikipedia since january 18. So, I request to you to grant burocrat status to Mschlindwein, Muriel and Manuel Anastácio, and revoke the burocrat status of JoaoMiranda. Please forgive me for any english error and thank you very much. Gbiten 23:51, 28 Jan 2005 (UTC)
All done. --Daniel Mayer 08:53, 30 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Thanks mav. Just a note: you should change the boilerplate pt: Hello. Você é agora um burocrata. Somente uso Special:Makesysop por políticas dos seus wiki to pt: Olá, você é agora um burocrata. Faça uso de Special:Makesysop somente de acordo com as políticas da sua wiki. :) muriel 212.113.164.100 09:49, 30 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Google translator has failed me. :) --mav
  • Cao Xuân Hiếu would like to become an administrator for the Vietnamese Wikipedia (w:vi:). He has gotten support from three Vietnamese users (including me, a sysop) and "limited support" from a third user. (That's actually an achievement for a wiki of our size.) I think he has addressed any concerns that have arisen from his request, and this request has been sitting around for awhile without any further objections. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, blog) 21:16, 5 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • User rights for "Vietbio@viwiki" updated. Please nominate a sysop on your wiki to become a bureaucrat. --Daniel Mayer 19:45, 12 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Waerth 21:41, 28 Jan 2005 (UTC) would like bureaucrat access at least untill approved by the community on nl.wikinews.
    • Done. --Daniel Mayer 21:47, 28 Jan 2005 (UTC)
      • I think that while the community is big enough, we are supposed to do only what community say, ie, to let them approve waerth first. ant

  • User nl:wikt:FrankC, he donated a major amount of words to wiktionary. I want to upload it using a bot and after that I will turn the user over to Frank. This is to credit him for this work. I have posted a note in "de kroeg" explaining this. GerardM 18:12, 2 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Done. Angela 19:32, 2 Feb 2005 (UTC)

  • Waerth at NL-wikinews on his request. Waerth is an existing sysop from nl: and th:. - Andre Engels 18:27, 28 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • RobotSCwikt and RobotGMwikt for the it: the scn: wiktionary. This is to do things like uploading amounts of words in order to ask people to help completing the content. We find that it is easier to get people to contribute when there is already a small start .. GerardM 19:21, 26 Jan 2005 (UTC) SabineCretella 19:21, 26 Jan 2005 (UTC)

    • What is "Ik"? There doesn't seem to be a RobotGMwikt at ik Wikipedia or Wiktionary. Angela
      • Ik is a Dutch word meaning I :) I was talking en: here..
        • Oh. :) Done now. Angela 18:46, 27 Jan 2005 (UTC)

    • Hi, I am a user in Armenian Wikibooks (hy.wikibooks.org) and would like to become administrator to be able to access protected pages (I want to traslate and change the titles of special pages, but they are protected). Thanks. Ruben 12:50, 6 December 2004 (UTC)
      • Same story with this one. We must really look bad, or atleast lazy. Gentgeen
        • Please first provide an administrator page on hy.wikibooks. Thanks. Anthere
          • Unfortunatly, there has been no activity on b:hy: since 17 December. I think we lost this one. Gentgeen 08:57, 16 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Please add me as an admin on no.wiktionary. Admittedly, there is not very much activity there right now, but we have at least one vanity page which should be deleted, but can't, for the lack of admins. For the record, I'm the same person as w:nn:Brukar:Arj, w:no:Bruker:Arj, w:User:Arj, among others. Arj 17:36, 24 Jan 2005 (UTC)

    • I`d like to apply for admin status ONLY on ro.WikiBooks.org - because the Romanian WikiBooks Project is really down. I worked a lot for the ro.Wikibooks project - and i`m tired of all the vandalism on the main page / and books on ro.wikibooks. I think i`ve proven my devotion to the project. ( the work i`ve done to ro.wikibooks.org - can be seen in Contributions and on tha main page of ro.wikibooks - I`m now publishing 2 books of 400 pages each on C++ / ASM programming - and i want to make sure, that the work i put in publishing those books - stays there ) - D.EVIL

  • I hereby humbly request bot status for HippieBot on the English Wiktionary. I am one of the ones holding the discussion on the Beer parlour and on HippieBot's pages. I am happy to await the outcome of those discussions before being granted bot status but thought I'd like to make my request official now that I have discovered the process. — Hippietrail 13:49, 3 Nov 2004 (UTC)
    • Is there any consensus on Wiktionary about this yet? Angela 03:16, 13 Nov 2004 (UTC)

here in my discussion i received an explicit request from da: and bg: to be marked as bot.


Note for Yurik regarding the Japanese YurikBot account : just ask a bureaucrat to rename the account using Special:Renameuser, then you can recreate it with a different password. I don't think there's any need to find out who did it. It's just one of those silly little things that bored kids do sometimes.

To stewards: Please mark the above as bots, as some sites have complained that their RC lists get swamped. The bot is serving a very important function - balancing out interwiki links. Thanks!!! --Yurik 16:41, 24 July 2005 (UTC)
Speaking for simple:wikipedia , I want to see Yurik create a clear bot account name, and he really should do that everywhere. Using his real user name is confusing and against standard practice. Especially important if we ever move to single login. -- Netoholic @ 16:47, 24 July 2005 (UTC)
I agree that YurikBot everywhere would be more in-line with the guidelines. Stewards, is it possible to rename them all to YurikBot? They haven't exceeded 5000 changes (except for ru:, which is already YurikBot). Thanks! --Yurik 17:00, 24 July 2005 (UTC)
Support. But all bots should have names YurikBot to clarify that it is bot. Maximaximax 08:35, 29 July 2005 (UTC)


  • Please desysop me, cs:Wikipedista:Beren. We are in big trouble with our first bureocrat, that has very bad impact on the community. We failed to solve the situation (about half-year flamewars with some breaks) and our last voting about desysop of cs:Wikipedista:Vít Zvánovec fails too. Althrough I was not the strongest opponent of Vít Zvánovec, I decided to drop my sysop rights to allow another solutions of the situation.

  • Hi, I request bureaucratship for it.quote. We have only one admin there (who is on holiday..) and some problems with a vandal. This request is quite urgent. Thanks!

Strong support for this request --M/ 19:12, 31 July 2005 (UTC)

Set temporary sysop status for Frieda. Please put some sort of an information on a local it.wikiquote page about you becoming a bureaucrat - if no one will oppose in the few next hours, you will be granted permanent sysop and bureaucrat rights. Datrio 19:16, 31 July 2005 (UTC)

Seeing as the project doesn't has a bureaucrat and Frieda seems like a good user, I've granted her permanent sysop and bureaucrat status. Just leave the message about her new status on your project. Hope you won't have any problems with vandals anymore. Good luck on your Wikiquote! :) Datrio 19:29, 31 July 2005 (UTC)

Sorry, but even if it's a simple bot as that, you still have to request a bot status on the local Wiki for it. After you'll post information in the local village pump, or anywhere else it will be requested, that you're running such a bot, we'll be able to set bot rights for it.

  • I'd like to be an admin on nds.wiktionary. Short time ago we spoke on nds.wikipedia about having a Wiktionary and were planning for a structured beginning. As luck would have it, also some people from other wiktionaries had the idea of beginning the nds.wiktionary, they have some wordlists they want to insert automatically, but for my knowledge noone of them speaks Low Saxon. It would be good, if I had the possibility to help sorting the things out. Recently also wikt:nds:Bruker:GerardM became admin, but he speaks no Low Saxon. I'm also admin on nds.wikipedia and de.wikipedia. --Slomox 13:13, 25 July 2005 (UTC)
Could you leave a message on some local page on nds.wiktionary, that you're becoming a sysop? Also, could you leave a message in the local village pump, or some other place, that your project needs a bureaucrat? That could be useful. Datrio 20:32, 27 July 2005 (UTC)
  • I'd like to request bureaucrat status for myself b:User:Aya on en.wikibooks.org, since the existing bureaucrats are rarely active, and the project is becoming far more popular (approching 10,000 pages). - Aya T C 01:22, 27 July 2005 (UTC)
Plese to b:Wikibooks:Requests for adminshipRequests for bureaucrats--Shizhao 07:01, 27 July 2005 (UTC)
There is no "requests for bureaucrat" section on that page, only "nominations", and I'm thinking of removing that. Since bureaucrats can only be created by stewards and developers, and these folks have to sort out every wiki, it would make more sense for these requests to be managed centrally at Meta, otherwise the poor stewards will have to regularly check every wiki (of which there are hundreds), and I don't believe this is what actually happens. I also realize that this page states "where no local means exists", but something you have to realize about the nature of wiki is that even though a page may exist, it doesn't mean aynone reads it, or keeps it up-to-date. Most of our sysops are inactive, and this is a problem. Many users have tried to get sysop status by applying on that page, but found that nothing ever happens, and eventually give up. As a consequence, there is no-one there to combat the ongoing vandalism. I'm hoping the the same is not true of this wiki. Do any active developers/stewards even read this page? - Aya T C 16:44, 27 July 2005 (UTC)
Well... Please list yourself on b:Wikibooks:Requests for adminship, so everyone will be aware of the fact that you're becoming a bureaucrat. If no one will oppose, we'll set the bureaucrat flag for you. Datrio 20:37, 27 July 2005 (UTC)
Done. See b:Wikibooks:Requests for adminship#Aya. Thankyou for your swift response. - Aya T C 19:02, 28 July 2005 (UTC)
Update: When you said, "If no one will oppose", you neglected to specify a time limit for such opposition. The majority of the Wikibooks regulars who even bother to watch that page (there aren't that many) have already cast their votes. I'd prefer this could be sorted out ASAP, since the vandalism keeps on coming. Thankyou. - Aya T C 16:57, 30 July 2005 (UTC)
Done. Good luck on your project :) Datrio 17:04, 30 July 2005 (UTC)
Thanks. :) It's good to know these projects haven't been abandoned. This will be my last post to this section, so feel free to archive it whenever you like. - Aya T C 17:37, 30 July 2005 (UTC)
Update: I'm somewhat concerned by the fact that I can make administrators, but I can't remove them. One of the mechanisms required for the swift granting of admin permissions must be the ability to swiftly remove such permissions, in the event the the user is deemed to have excessively abuse their new-found power. Our wiki runs the 1.5beta with the Special:Userrights page (which I assume would allow this functionality), but I don't seem to be able to access it. Any suggestions? - Aya T C 19:56, 30 July 2005 (UTC)
Only stewards can technically remove the rights of an editor. Not a bureaucrat. When it is necessary to remove rights of someone, it must be first decided on a local wiki, by the whole community (by any mean necessary - typically voting). Only after this has been decided, you may come over here or ask a steward on irc for speeder reaction, and the steward will carry on the request. Remember : sysops are normally trusted editors, they may go wrong, but they will normally not be vandals (unless you give sysop power in a very strange way). Anthere

The IP in question is a proxy server for tunnelrats.org.au, the server in question has a member access list of in excess of 178 people, (access to the members dbase I had provided to David_Gerard) and on polite discussion with him informing him that there is no foul play occuring or intended, he responded with a quip on my talk page that 'he's not stupid'.
I can provide proxy logs and member dbase access to anyone wanting to verify this information is correct and factual, as I explained to him, if it was a case of sock puppetry I'd just cycle the IP address on the proxy server, but I would prefer to do things by the book as there was no instance of foul play or sock puppetry occuring.

  • Interlingua Wikipedia

A bit over two months ago, I requested administrator status at the Interlingua wikipedia's administrator/RfA page. However, there has been no response from the administrators, positive or negative; in fact, only one admin (ILVI) has made any edits since I posted my request, and those were three edits total to two conlang pages. Some administrators there haven't made any edits since 2004. There are a few things I would like to do to help the Interlingua wikipedia grow (for example, fix a glaring typo on the front page, translate some parts of the interface that are still in English, and translate the graphic which is notably not in Interlingua) that can only be done by an admin or a sysop.

  • New administrator for Aragonese wiki

I an:User:Juanpabl am for the moment the only administrator of the aragonese an: wikipedia. User Willtron an:User:Willtron has been a very active user in the last months, and we think he would be a good administrator for the aragonese wikipedia, which has significantly grown in the last months. I therefore request administrator permission for an:User:Willtron. Thanks. 62.101.191.90 20:33, 29 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Is there any Request for Adminship page on your Wiki? If not, could you create it, and put the request for Willtron to become a sysop there? We need to really see the community accepting him becoming a sysop. Also, please talk with the community about choosing a bureaucrat for your Wikipedia. Datrio 14:59, 1 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Again, there is the constant assumption by stewards that every Wikipedia has a community. In many cases, there simply is no community to consult, and the only reasonable policy is "make sysop now, desysop later if there are complaints". --Node ue 7 July 2005 03:49 (UTC)
I created the page an:Wikipedia:Candidaturas á almenistrador on 3rd July, proposing an:User:Willtron as new administator and myself as bureaucrat. Both agree and another user agreed with the proposal. No user has manifested against the proposal. As Node ue said, it is too optimistic to think that behind the aragonese wikipedia there is a community.62.101.185.121 8 July 2005 17:58 (UTC)

the reason for locking this wikipedia was stated by Andre Engels: "The sh: Wikipedia has been permanently locked because it is not used any more. Please go to the Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian or Slovenian Wikipedia instead."
for what reason should it be unlocked? oscar 21:47, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Could you please specify why you want to work on sh: rather than sr: or hr:? - Andre Engels 22:04, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
This is also discussed at Requests for new languages#Serbo-croatian language. Angela 23:16, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Yes, go to this page, and you will see mine reasons why I want to work on sh Wikipedia. I think that bs+hr+sr language is one language. --Pokrajac 21:48, 16 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Andre, you closed this Wikipedia without asking anybody. It was a little bit active right up until you closed it. Please, re-open it since there are people wanting to work on it now. The simple reason why people are wanting to use sh: is that they do not believe Bosnian, Serbian, and Croatian are separate languages, and want to work in a multinational environment which is more conducive to NPOV than the separate-wikis setup. --Node ue 00:29, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Another possible justification:
All new languages on territory of ex-Yugoslavia are trying to promote there specific usage and speakers often find any alternative usage offensive. It is difficult to contribute if you know that you going to upset or even offend part of your target audience. Serbo-Croatian acts as a shield against this type of problems as any usage is equally correct. --Miramoto 23:42, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)
i am a bit taken aback, being from holland myself. but where are slovenian and bosnian in this nomenclature? excuse me, but i am in doubt. oscar 00:06, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Slovenian is not part of "Serbo-Croatian". Serbo-Croatian includes only Bosnian, Croatian, and Serbian. In fact, between the official languages of Bosnia, Serbia, and Croatia, there are mostly only minor spelling differences. Many international organisations still treat Serbian, Croatian, and Bosnian as a single language to cut down on translation costs, since only about 3% of the vocabulary is any different, and often it's just in the spelling. --Node ue 07:03, 22 Jun 2005 (UTC)
AFAIK serbian and croatian language are basically the same, but serbians use cyrillic alphabeth, while croatian use latin alphabeth. I have no problem if someone wish to write on sh:, i just ask myself which alphabeth they are going to use there. --Snowdog 13:05, 22 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Actually, Serbian uses both alphabets (Cyrillic and Latin), while Croatian uses just Latin. Serbo-Croatian, as a unified language, is usually written in the Latin alphabet. Hmm, I wonder why for nationalistic purposes Bosnian isn't written in Arabic? That would be... more balkanisation. --Node ue 13:34, 22 Jun 2005 (UTC)

  • Mo.wiki adminship: Urgent!

Hi; Ronline, Danutz, and I finally reached an agreement regarding mo.wiki about one month ago, which seems to be echoed across the ro.wiki community.

Recently, a group of Romanian nationalist vandals has showed up, labelling the Wikipedia as "communist", "npov", and "soviet" simply because they don't think that the 5% of Moldovans who use Cyrillic, and the 33% of Moldovans who call their language Moldovan (as opposed to Romanian), have a right to do so. One of them was willing to discuss it at first, but now they have resorted to petty vandalism.

This is an emergency situation as it is a very real possibility that they;'ll destroy the Wikipedia to an extent where it's difficult to repair.

None of the vandals are registered users.

If, after the situation is solved, I do not receive Ronline and Danutz' blessing (which I think I will), I will step down immediately.

--Node ue 15:21, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

  • Please remove my adminship on de: I am almost exclusively writing articles and virtually never using admin rights. By losing the admin functions I hope to become able to ignore the discussions about evil admins and so on.

  • Hello, At Angela's request a vote was taken at the Sardinian administrator page, and the only other active Sard and one foreigner both agreed that it's OK for me to be admin (one user had some reserve, but we discussed in a civil way and it was sorted out, so he changed his vote). I would like to be admin so I can change the interface, and clean up a small mess of redirezion pages we been made. Gràtzias e saludos!! --M64

  • KokoBot: Hi, Can you give me a botstatus for ru: ?? The Russian wikipedians don't think it is a problem, but they ask me to get a botstatus. I only make changes on interwiki-pages, because I don't understand the language enough to edit the pages themselves. ru:Участник обсуждение:KokoBot
    • There are also other wikipedia's I use to correct interwiki-links, I only let the bot make changes when I'm very sure. Do I also need a botstatus there?? --koko 19:28, 2005 Jun 1 (UTC)
    • Koko, of course you need to talk to the local community; running the bot on the Polish wiki and cluttering the Recent Changes page with untranslated messages (while there already are two registered bots doing the job right) and refusing to answer on the talk page was not taken well. So please talk to people, make sure your services are needed, and get the bot status before you launch into mass edits. tsca 19:48, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)
      • First of all, I've granted bot status on ru:, but please announce your bot in the local village pump. Secondly, the same goes with other projects - either ask for bot status there, or announce your bot on the other local Wikipedia projects (the village pumps, preferably). Then just leave a link to them here, and if there'll be no objections, the bot status for your bot on these projects will be granted.
        • And one note - please don't delete other users comments. Datrio 20:03, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)
          • Hi, Thanks for granting me the status! I know about my mistakes, but a did a few things, without reading the instructions well enough, but by now, I've learned it (altough on the less positif way...). At the moment, I made a page on all of the local wikpedias, so everyone can know what I want to do. When there are mostly good reactions, i will ask on both places for botstatus. About your note; I think I didn't delete any comments...When I did so, it was by abuse, and then please put it back... --koko 20:36, 2005 Jun 1 (UTC)
  • Hi, On the Swedish wikipedia, they told me to come here to ask for a botstatus for their wiki. Is there someone who can give it to me? It is once again for interwikilinks. Once again thanks --koko 18:35, 2005 Jun 2 (UTC)

DCabrilo started sr.wikinews (and announced it at Serbian vilage pump) but he is not active last few days, Kaster is now the most active on sr.wikinews and Goran and Sasa are very active Wikipedians which work on Wikinews, too. And this is the list of people who was working on sr.wikinews. If you give bureaucrat right to anyone, it would be good enough (all of that people are or should be admins on sr.wikipedia). I made the page: admin page --Millosh 11:51, 30 May 2005 (UTC)

  • Can you please grant me sysop status on the Gaeilge Wikipedia, their are a huge amount of grammar mistakes on the interface pages. Everytime they are pointed out, the only active admin seems to just say 'Yeah, sure thing', then not do anything. Many applications for sysop status have been made and again, the admin says 'Sure thing' and doesn't do anything. Either he doesn't have beaurocrat status or he just doesn't want anyone else to be an admin. Also, could you give me or someone else beaurocrat status so more admins can be made, there's at least 3 or 4 people who want it and would be good but can't get it. His use page says he's away, but he's edited plenty of articles since then and would've had plenty of time to create admins.

The Bambara Wikipedia hasn't been much of a success up to now, but I still hope that's gonna change. However, Thursday I'll start working with a native speaker of Fulfulde (or Peul). Since most Peul speakers in Francophone countries don't understand English it is important to (start to) translate the interface. For this admin rights at http://ff.wikipedia.org are very handy.

  • Swedish Wikipedia currently has five administrators who has formally asked for their own resignation. Currently it seems we have no way of removing administrator priviliges from an admin; our programmer/developer (the only one, as far as I know) has previously done so in a few cases but does not feel it is his job any more; it should be done by a steward, he says.
  • The situation is to large extent the result of a long series of conflicts with and around an administrator who many of as label as problematic, as an editor and as an administrator. As far as I understand this user has been technically proven - as far as that is possible - to be identical with a user who is currently on a three month ban from English Wikipedia for the use of sock puppets. This user is, by most of us who have been around for a while, considered a true member of the troll species.
  • When for the second time challenged with a poll regarding withdrawal of admin priviledges, this administrator announced that he voluntarily withdrew from the post. It can not be excluded that this was done for tactical reasons; since the procedure of how to remove administrator status on Swedish Wikipedia is not clear, a couple of such requests have been around for a while but nothing has happened with them. Most, if not all, of these other cases of administrator asking for removal of their admin status is a result of this long ongoing situations with continous conflicts, that is wearing and tearing on all of us. The logical thing to do IMO would be to remove the admin status for all five of them. Those who have the trust of the Sw WP public, can always be re-elected later.

  • Following the request of our lb-wiki bureaucrat Briséis, I should be grateful if you could grant bot status to both ChronoBot and LuxBot.
    ChronoBot creates basic chronology schemes to be afterwards filled with content by human users. Being up to ten times faster at this task than any human, this frees a lot of time for the work on the content itself. ChronoBot has already been tested on two centuries and works perfect now.
    LuxBot intends to correct Luxembourg articles with respect to orthography. The spell-check applies only to common spelling mistakes. Currently, LuxBot operates only half-automated, but it is planned to use a full-automated version once a routine excluding external links from the spell-check will have been included in the code. Thank you. --Otets 12:32, 1 May 2005 (UTC)

People who voted already are the only users beside Skuolfi.
Important note: Skuolfi is a fluent speaker of Sámi, and has been the first active fluent Sámi speaking contributor to the Sámi Wikipedia. He should be given adminship because the opinions of all active users on se: have already been given at the vote, both were in favor.

I would like to request adminship for PCode on the Chuvash Wikipedia (cv:. Administrators page is here.

Hi, I'll wait a little bit of time for opinions on cv. Anthere 19:57, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Hi, there is no community there .
In fact, if you will check his edit history, you will find he has made heaps of edits, while other people (such as Untifler, who doesn't speak Chuvash, from the Tatar Wikipedia) have only made 0~20.
PCode is the first to make things at cv. I know the history of that Wikipedia: it's been created according to a message from a Russian boy, who could not do much there because of his poor Chuvash. Since then PCode is the first active user, in fact. It'd be good to grat him adminship so that he could translate the interface and do similar things. Voting for his adminship would have no sense now, for most members of cv are not Chuvash at the moment. -- cv:Amikeco/Slavik IVANOV 16:17, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Important note: PCode is a fluent speaker of Chuvash, and has been the first active contributor to the Chuvash Wikipedia. He should be given adminship because there are no opinions on cv, save two inactive, non-chuvash contributors Slavik Ivanov and Untifler.
Would be grateful, if Admin rights as soon as possible were are transferred{handed} to me. I tried to contact Untifler, could. Rights are necessary for translation system messages and trackings contents (Programm Translate). PCode 11:22, 4 May 2005 (UTC)

        • He is very active and creates many great (and fairly NPOV) articles mostly about religion.
        • Religion questions belong to hot themes, but Dodo keeps wikiquette in all his discussions (even if one user tends to provoke).
        • I saw him at least at one case, when he took the initiative in advocating against breaking copyright law. --RuM 23:04, 24 Mar 2005 (UTC)

No vote will be conlusive at the moment, so it might be a temporary adminship (say, for 2-3 months with more democratic elections afterwards).

There is a consensus (three users, including a sysop) that I should be the bureaucrat, since I've been sending the RfA's to this page for some time anyways. I'm already a sysop at the vi: wiki (username: Mxn). There is currently a poll to decide what exactly to call a bureaucrat in Vietnamese, by the way. Also, there is a user by the name of Vương Ngân Hà who was nominated by a sysop, and has received suppport from two other sysops (including me). No objections have been voiced against either me or Vương Ngân Hà. Thanks for your time. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, blog) 05:53, 3 Mar 2005 (UTC)

  • Request for Sysop status on the Bambara Wikipedia for Guaka. I don't speak Bambara, but I do want to learn it. I want to get the Bambara Wikipedia started while I'm in Mali. I read and write French. I'm sysop of the Limburgish Wikipedia since November 2004 or so. Guaka 16:00, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • We have not had much by the way of luck with giving people sysop status on a wiki whose language they don't speak.... So I'm a bit apprehensive about that. At the very least, please follow the instructions above. --Daniel Mayer 19:45, 12 Feb 2005 (UTC)
      • Could you make these instructions a tiny bit clearer? For instance, a link to an existing "admin page" would be nice. The plan is to set up a competition to get the Bambara Wikipedia started. I'm here for 3 months, working for w:Geekcorps. We very likely won't be able to find someone who writes Bambara, is willing and able to be sysop and do the competition within these 3 months. If the launch and the competition are successful we'll probably have some candidates for adminship and I will be very willing to step down from this function. For the time being it would be very practical to encounter possible vandalism, and possible mistakes. Oh, and IRL I'm surrounded by people who do speak Bambara, whom I can ask what stuff means (once people start adding text). Guaka 09:15, 17 Feb 2005 (UTC)
        • Uhhhhhhhh... if you're surrounded by Bambara speakers, why is the content of the site mostly in French so far? Isn't it as simple as saying "Could you please write this for me in Bambara?"??? (unsigned)
          • No it isn't. Asking what stuff means is so much easier than asking "can you please write this in Bambara". Most people don't write Bambara. They learn reading/writing with French. Many concepts don't have quick'n'easy translations, if there are any at all. Guaka
            • In the whole nation of Mali, there must be somebody who can write Bambara. If there are no words in Bambara as you say, then how can we have an encyclopedia in it? A language without words is like a man without skin, bones, or blood.
              • Did I write that nobody writes in Bambara? Please read more carefully. Guaka 16:01, 23 Feb 2005 (UTC)

And even some serious contributions from that address! :)

Request for adminship in the Ossetian wikipedia, created on 28th of February. My nick is Amikeco there. The reason for the request: we need someone to start translating the interface and just to watch the other things.

I'm asking for adminship status on the bosnian wiktionary. I'm basically the only person on there at the moment. I want adminship status so that I can translate the interface, localize the options that are still in english, fix the translations of things such as "main page", etc. By the way, if anybody could direct me to where I could fix the translation of "main page" for the bosnian wiktionary (I understand it's somewhere here on meta-wiki) and what I'd have to do to update changes it'd be much appreciated. - Live Forever 20:16, 28 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Japanese Wiktionary I request database locking of Japanese Wiktionary. This project is not so inactive, however the basic guidelines have not been established yet and we have many administrative issues and problems. After discussion on the village pump, we decided to lock the DB. This lock is temporal until the policies prepared. We will discuss those issues on 日本語版ウィクショナリーの整備. Regards, e-Goat 22:16, 14 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Britty indicated 8 people supported that, against 1 opposing. For a rather big community (third language), I think this number is quite low. Could more people give their opinion on this ? Anthere
Only three people supported Britty's adminship in Japanese Wikiquote. But this vote was approved and meta considered she met this requirement: "you are a sysop on a local wikipedia or related project." Why aren't 8 people enough? DrFrog 02:32, 15 Feb 2005 (UTC)
This is a very different issue. Regardless of Britty status on ja, we on meta really trust us. So, we see no issue in having her sysop. We need her. But here, we are talking of a whole project, the impact could be tremendous, not something to do just because 8 people ask. The french and japanese communities are basically the same size, I would not do it if 8 people only had given their opinion. Anthere

Thanks for your comment, Anthere, I can understand your opinion. However, now there is no opposing virtually because when I ascertained the locking request again, the oppose did not express opposing argument. And I'm afraid this number is not so low. On the actual condition, the contributors, including sysops, who show an interest in creating administrative documents and effortful works are quite few, even though the Japanese Wikipedia is big. I'm afraid this is the actual state of the Japanese Wiktionary. e-Goat 04:10, 15 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Agreed. And would you let me add another fact: my proposal for temporal closure of Japanese WikinewsWiktionary to wikija-l. There are no responce in the mailingist. If someone opposed, they could express their opinion whether in the mailing list or in the beer parlour of the project. We had only one clear opposition during a week. In my opinion we could conclude there is a concensus for closing. I asked therefore you, Anthere, to react this request. --Aphaia | WQ2翻訳中 | talk 05:23, 15 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Now We got new 2 supports. And I should have told you that the discussion was absolutely open, anyone could express opinions freely, I announced it clearly on the Village pump, Main page and Recentchanges. e-Goat 00:13, 16 Feb 2005 (UTC) p.s. Aphaia, you meant Wiktionary not Wikinews, right?

Thanks, eG, it was my fault. Sorry for confusion, if any. --Aphaia | WQ2翻訳中 | talk 00:21, 16 Feb 2005 (UTC)

None of 10 supporters is active contributor (more than 10 edits in the main namescape in last 30 days) (Brevam: 9, Electric goat: 5, 218.226.208.33: 4, PiaCarrot: 2, Aphaia: 1, Kahusi: 0, Kzhr: 0, Ninomy: 0, NJT: 0, Tietew: 0). But we don't care about that. While Japanese Wiktionary is open, we cannot establish basic guidelines and solve administrative issues. But once Wiktionary is locked, many wikipoliticians will gather in meta and they are expected to boost wikipolitics. DrFrog 01:15, 16 Feb 2005 (UTC)

quite true, anyway, I tried to do it, and could not, as the feature is not unabled on ja wiktionary. I just asked Brion to please do it for you. Anthere 20:51, 16 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Okay, Ja should be locked. If the current message does not fit, please tell us. Anthere

Thank you, Anthere and Brion. Yes, I have to fix the current messages. Before I read this, I sent an E-mail to Wiktionary-l It was still awaiting, so I canceled. I'd rewrite and report it later on somewhere. e-Goat 22:19, 16 Feb 2005 (UTC)

huwiki checkuser status

As we have "discussed" on #wikimedia-tech I hereby request CheckUser flag on Hungarian Wikipedia. The voting page could be found here (including english translation). As far as I see I have the backing of all the admins, too. (Not that it matters, but two "oppose" votes are from editors who are causing nearly all the troubles on huwiki and the reason for the request itself: IGe uses sock puppets heavily [and about to be banned for a longer period of time due to violating nearly everything possible] and Math just came back from having repeatedly banned for personal attacks [and probably looking forward to be banned for a longer period of time].) Thank you. --grin 22:50, 21 September 2005 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm CdaMVvWgS from German and Nauruan Wikipedia, where I'm mainly active and where I'm also a sysop. I'd like to request permission to be a sysop (or bureaucrat, if possible) on Nauruan Wiktionary (http://na.wiktionary.org/). There are 9 registered user, but no admin; just about 5 users ever did some contributions, and the last few months there was no activity.

cs

Hi. Czech Wiktionary is now almost abandoned. There is about one edit a day. The only Czech sysop has 11 contributions during last 9 months, the other non-Czech has no edit during last year. There are some pages to be deleted (vandalisms, redirects after moves etc), system messages to be translated. I'd like to improve Czech Wiktionary and sysop right would help me. (I also have already made some work on cs.wikipedia.) --Zanatic 10:45, 28 September 2005 (UTC)

There was proposal at cs.wiki that we should have also a bureaucrat at cs.Wiktionary, so I also ask for bureaucrat rights. Zanatic 20:52, 28 September 2005 (UTC) Withdrawn by Zanatic 15:58, 29 September 2005 (UTC)
I would recomend granting only sysopship to Zanatic. His work is of good quality. I am, however, concerned by his statement that he has finished negotiations with Zirland (the other candidate) concerning sysopship grant. The reasons why I am against Zirland's sysopship are summarized below. --TMA 08:53, 29 September 2005 (UTC)
As Zanatic pointed out, there is not much of a community on cs:wikt:. I do not think the (virtually nonexistent) community is large or mature enough to justify the existence of a bureaucrat. --TMA 08:53, 29 September 2005 (UTC)

I would recomend against making Zirland a sysop on cs:wikt:. He has only one editation (as of 2005-09-29 8:20 UTC), namely upload of Cnn.jpg file. This file was later marked for speedy deletion by applicant himself. Moreover, Zirland is registered user on cs:wikt: since 11:13, 28. 9. 2005, applying for sysopship only nine minutes after registration. --TMA 08:53, 29 September 2005 (UTC) (sysop on cs:wikt:)

cs:Wikipedista:Tompecina temp. desysop

Completed by Danny. Discussion will probably continue at Requests for comments/Cswiki issues. Archived from Requests by Wikimol 22:24, 20 September 2005 (UTC)

cs:Wikipedista:Tompecina - temporary removal of admin flag is requested (1 day should be enough). Tompecina was blocked after breaking 3RR. Unfortunately he was unable to calm down and deblocked himself. Several blockings and self-deblockings followed - see cs:Speciální:Log. --Wikimol 20:42, 18 September 2005 (UTC)

It should be pointed out that this account of the events is untrue. Regretfully, the whole case seems to be very similar to the recent expulsion of Z. Without going into much detail, I would like to mention that a spelling change that violated an approved rule on cs.wiki was made and my alleged breach of the 3RR was merely due to my legitimate attempt to enforce the rule. I tried to discuss the matter with the other members involved in the dispute, who later admitted that I was absolutely correct in interpreting the rule. Therefore, the ban was wholly unwarranted and it was in order to overrule it. I always try to settle things peacefully, and it was only due to excessive use of reverts by the other members that the conflict escalated, but again, if it were not for my banning (without taking a vote, even without a word of warning), there would be no conflict now. I still hope for things to be resolved by discussion rather than by using (and potentially abusing) formal authorities. --Tompecina 21:20, 18 September 2005 (UTC)

This request was annouced on cs wiki on Village pump --Zirland 21:02, 18 September 2005 (UTC)

the editor is not sysop according to our interface. So I did not remove the status. Anthere
Actually it was made by Danny on 18 September 2005 at 22:07, not bothering noticed that. I point out Wikimol asked only for temporary removal of admin flag (1 day should be enough), although even that is controversial. -- V. Z. 07:39, 19 September 2005 (UTC)
This is not a problem anymore. I left cs.wiki with no intention of coming back. Basically, as I said earlier, these people are bullies, knowing very little about what making an encyclopaedia is about (most of them posses no recognisable expert knowledge or skills they could contribute - some of them writing in hideous, semi-illiterate Czech at that). Their only concern is the POWER they can exert over those who actually work for the community, telling them how to do things they cannot do themselves, correcting their alleged spelling errors (which are no errors at all) and flexing their egos by punishing them for non-existent infractions. The prognosis is bleak: either the community is going to summon enough strength to get rid of the wimps who are terrorising it (which is unlikely to happen), or cs.wiki will become a quagmire run by worshippers of mediocrity, which it more or less is now. --Tompecina 09:07, 19 September 2005 (UTC)
The problems with Tompecina in this case were breaking three reverts rule (six reverts!) and misusing of administrator's rights in his own case. It is a bit funny if he says our only concern is power. BTW, on Requests_for_comments/Cswiki_issues Tompecina says he was expelled from cs.wiki which is not true at all. --Radouch 09:24, 19 September 2005 (UTC)
As I wrote on Requests for comments/Cswiki issues#cs.wiki, Radouch and others fatally failed to punish Cinik's provocations, because he shares with them the membership in the same clique. 3RR is not a dogma, you should have tried IAR instead to find a compromise. That's why I must emphasise that the Group of lynchers is thirsty for power and lacks any common sense. -- V. Z. 15:53, 19 September 2005 (UTC)

No only have I been suspended, but I was not even allowed to post a short statement on my own talk page, and a completely unrelated article I wrote - Výklad (právo) - was deleted as a punishment. I rest my case, nihil habeo cum cs.wiki. --Tompecina 09:37, 19 September 2005 (UTC)

Now is more than one day when stewards were asked to desysop Mr. Pecina for one day. I see no restoration of his rights: Special:Log/rights and cs:Special:Listusers/sysop. -- V. Z. 07:19, 20 September 2005 (UTC)

cs:User:Ludek was in conntact with Tompecina. Before removal Tompecina wrote him he didnt want to be sysop. Tompecina also twice announced leaving cs wikipedia. There is probably nobody against return of rights if Tompecina announces change of his decisions. --Li-sung 08:19, 20 September 2005 (UTC)

It is absurd to set new and new conditions for restoring Mr. Pecina's rights. The application for temporary desysopping was unconditional. The term is now over, it's time to return his rights. -- V. Z. 08:45, 20 September 2005 (UTC)
Yep, a farcical end to a farcical story. Of the several explanations why my access rights cannot be restored, this one is my favorite: It is necessary to protect me from spoofers. What if someone used my (presumably poorly protected) password and harmed me by doing mischief in my name!? Fun, just pure fun... --Tompecina 08:58, 20 September 2005 (UTC)
I tried to explain to Beren & Malý čtenář unreasonableness of this claim, but in vain. I am sorry for that, but those who don't wish to hear they don't hear. -- V. Z. 12:21, 20 September 2005 (UTC)
@Tompecina: Stop laughing and give clear answer, please. Do you want to be sysop on cswiki (yes/no)? --80.250.18.19 09:03, 20 September 2005 (UTC)
Wrong question. I don't intend to go to Italy in order to use up the balance on my Viacard highway-toll prepaid card before it expires. Still, I am entitled to the balance. --Tompecina 09:42, 20 September 2005 (UTC)
As bureaucrat on the Czech Wikipedia I feel to write some short explanation.
On the 18th September in reaction of Tompecina's messages in summaries of his contributions I asked Tompecina by mail if he really wants to give up sysop rights. He answered me by mail: "Yes." It was before action of stewards. Tompecina later also wrote on his own page (as new user Tomáš Pecina, because account Tompecina was temporarily blocked), that he will not work on the Czech Wikipedia. He also wrote on meta: "I left cs.wiki with no intention of coming back."
It means that Tompecina once wrote he does not want to be a sysop. He twice wrote he does not want to work on the cs Wikipedia. So now I am surprised what he writes here. Detailed description I already sent to steward Datrio (including parts of mails with translation to Datrio's mother tongue). I promissed him that I can send whole mail correspondention if he ask for it.
Today morning I sent mail to Tompecina, that if he changed decision, then he himself has to write it and in that case let he himself ask stewards for sysop rights back. --Ludek 09:52, 20 September 2005 (UTC)
In my view this is meaningless. Tomáš Pecina was desysopped temporarily, there is no valid reason to be desysopped for ever. -- V. Z. 12:21, 20 September 2005 (UTC)
Most likely "Rule Tompecina": temporary measures are permanent if the offender is unpopular with the sysops. --Tompecina 13:10, 20 September 2005 (UTC)

It seems the cs.wiki is busy disciplining another user (Jvano) who happened to vote against he majority on the issue of blocking V. Z.. No, nihil habeo... --Tompecina 11:06, 20 September 2005 (UTC)

Yes, I have already noticed much earlier (23 August 2005), Mr. Vaňo is often victim of the clique of lynchers. I am very sorry that no steward did any effective action. -- V. Z. 12:21, 20 September 2005 (UTC)

Hello! I am User:Juzeris and I am mostly active on English Wikipedia (w:User:Juzeris) and Latvian Wikipedia (lv:User:Juzeris). I have been an admin on Latvian Wikipedia since November 2004 and have translated most of the user interface. From time to time I have been contributing also to the English Wiktionary (User:Juzeris). The community of Latvian Wikipedia is finally ready to start working on its own Latvian Wiktionary. Therefore, I kindly ask you to grant me administrator/bureaucrat status there. Thank you! --Juzeris|talk 09:28, August 22, 2005 (UTC)

Sorry for the wrong order of procedure. Now I have informed the community of Latvian Wikipedia (since there are no active users in Latvian Wiktionary to inform). If you're interested in getting the opinions of Latvian administration, the other two Latvian admins are Tail (she's a bureaucrat as well) and Feens. --Juzeris|talk 19:59, August 22, 2005 (UTC)
I see that Juzeris is sysop now, so I guess this has been handled. - Andre Engels 09:00, 1 September 2005 (UTC)
Yes, I am a sysop in Latvian Wikipedia, but I was asking about Wiktionary. --Juzeris|talk 16:17, September 1, 2005 (UTC)
Well, the Latvian Wiktionary hasn't had any edits in some time. Please first:
  1. Make some edits to it, so we can see you're interested in this project
  2. List your request for adminship on some local page on Wiktionary, so the community users in the future will be aware you have been made a sysop in that way.
After that, you'll probably be granted sysop/bureaucrat status. Datrio 09:45, 4 September 2005 (UTC)
If you look at a broader span of recent edits, say, more than a week, you can see that I had been contributing to it even before this morning.
I have placed a separate notice on Latvian Wiktionary as well.
Is there a issue concerning the language of those notices? Is that the reson why it is taking so long? If it helps, my interest in this whole project in long-term could be seen, e.g., from my contributions to English Wikipedia.
Frankly speaking, I'm quite confused. What else should I had done to be granted adminship? Should I had become more involved in the English speaking community of Wikimedia? --Juzeris|talk 14:13, September 4, 2005 (UTC)
  • Done. Actually in the last month the only edits on lv.wiktionary are from Juzeris. I don't see any point in making him waiting any longer, and he informed the lv.wikipedia community on august 22. Seems there are no oppositions. --Snowdog 23:46, 5 September 2005 (UTC)

May I request the CheckUser flag for myself on enbooks? It would help us greatly with our attempts to stop the ongoing AP vandalism. - Aya T C 17:46, 14 August 2005 (UTC)

I do not support that. There is currently a privacy policy very little respected by anyone, and supposingly, this tool is only accessible to one arbcom member and Tim. We are far from the account. So, if we change this, we must absolutely change first the privacy policy not to claim we do not do certain things that are in reality done routinely. Either way will be fine by me, but claims on our privacy policy should be respected. Aya, this is not personal, this is policy. Anthere 07:01, 15 August 2005 (UTC)
This seems a little more contentious than I originially supposed. My reasoning for requesting this is, as per Privacy policy: Where the user has been vandalising articles or persistently behaving in a disruptive way, data may be released to assist in the targeting of IP blocks, or to assist in the formulation of a complaint to relevant Internet Service Providers. If you wish to U-turn this policy, that is fine also, and I shall withdraw my request. In the past I had been taking each case of AP vandalism (which happens quite regularly) to Brion VIBBER (or another one of the admin-dudes) who released the IP info as per this policy, but I got the impression he was getting a bit fed up with my frequent requests, so it was suggested by another one of the admin-dudes (I forget which), that I should apply for this flag. Also, I don't consider this a personal attack at all, and you are right to be concerned, since the page CheckUser seems to read more like a discussion page than a policy document, and is thus unclear as to when this flag should be granted, and under what circumstances it should be used. It might be suggested to wait until this document is more clearly defined, but since no-one is actually personally responsible for maintaining this document, it may never happen. - Aya T C 16:54, 15 August 2005 (UTC)
Can you please list examples where the privacy policy is not respected? I do not remember any cases, since the privacy policy became official, where information was given out in violation of it. -- Jeronim 08:57, 15 August 2005 (UTC)

Let me explain more. Here are some bits of from the privacy policy which are currently of my concern :

When using a pseudonym, your IP address will not be available to the public, but it will be stored on the wiki servers for a relatively short amount of time. Thus it will be available to developers and may be released under certain circumstances (see below).

Below mentions It is the policy of Wikimedia that personally identifiable data collected in the server logs will not be released by the developers who have access to it, except as follows: In response to a valid subpoena or other compulsory request from law enforcement

  • With permission of the affected user
  • To Jimbo Wales, his legal counsel, or his designee, when necessary for investigation of abuse complaints.
  • Where the information pertains to page views generated by a spider or bot and its dissemination is necessary to illustrate or resolve technical issues.
  • Where the user has been vandalising articles or persistently behaving in a disruptive way, data may be released to assist in the targeting of IP blocks, or to assist in the formulation of a complaint to relevant Internet Service Providers
  • Where it is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of the Wikimedia Foundation, its users or the public.

Wikimedia policy does not permit public distribution of such information under any circumstances, except as described above.

Now, the line might be between what we qualify as "public release" to "release to some editors". But I already witnessed myself one case where an ip check was made on a user who was hardly disruptive and did not qualify as vandal, he was not told an ip check was made on him, and the request was simply done by an admin. This is frankly very borderline with our privacy policy. So, I think that before giving any check user rights to ANYONE (and this include stewards as well) we must clarify what is okay to do and not okay to do and under which circonstances. Or we need to update the privacy policy to indicate ip checks may be done with very limited restrictions. If the community is okay with this, then why not, but we should not write something and do another. Please see what is currently written on the check user page as well. Anthere 09:42, 15 August 2005 (UTC)

Strongly oppose. After a discussion on IRC I got the impression that Aya is misunderstanding the purpose of checkuser and is not (yet) able to handle this feature in a responsible manner. --Elian 14:58, 17 August 2005 (UTC)
You can hardly blame the misunderstanding if you take the time to read how vague the page CheckUser actually is. But since your strong opposition would imply that this page makes perfect sense to you, perhaps you wouldn't mind clarifying it for the rest of us. See also Brion's first comment on bugzilla:1 - Aya T C 00:54, 19 August 2005 (UTC)

Datrio agreed to make a draft of a policy under which a group of editors from one project could ask to a steward to check an editor ip. I think this could be a good solution Anthere 15:41, 17 August 2005 (UTC)

Perhaps, but I can get this infomation more quickly by asking for it in #wikimedia-tech. At least one of the people in there is actually paid money to take on the responsibility for providing this information, whereas (as far as I am aware) stewards are merely volunteers and have no responsibilities at all, thus they can all go on an indefinite Wikibreak if they like. But I could be wrong. - Aya T C 01:11, 19 August 2005 (UTC)
Brion's is absolutely not bound to give you this information and is not paid for this task. I also trust he will give it to you only for cases of vandalism. Which is precisely the problem at stack. Brion or stewards (who are just as trusted than Brion) can at least ensure this tool is not abused and used strictly to fight vandalism. Anthere 06:58, 19 August 2005 (UTC)
I would only ask in cases of vandalism (this is the whole context of this thread). I don't care about sock-puppetry (which was the original, rather pathetic, reason for introducing this feature). We have far more sane ways of dealing with this, which is to judge disagreements not by the the number of "votes", but the reasoning behind said "votes". A "me-too vote" which is merely "I agree with Bob", is not weighed very highly. We never claimed to be a "direct democracy". I'm making this request to help prevent vandalism, thus your hinderences on this request encourage vandalism. I submit that this attitude makes you a vandal by proxy. - Aya T C 15:28, 19 August 2005 (UTC)
Aya, while the logic and reasoning about Anthere being a vandal by proxy is somewhat sound, I think it's ridiculous anyhow, and it certainly isn't helping you to accuse a member of the board of the foundation of being a vandal, even if only by proxy. --Node ue 00:24, 24 August 2005 (UTC)

  1. Hi, I have known Chaos from ar.wikipedia.org for some time, he is very dedicated and I think he will make a good administrator or bureaucrat. Currently we are the only two persons working in Arabic wikisource. And I hope we will continue to work with others also to improve it. I strongly recommend him for this position. --Tarawneh 19:21, 2 September 2005 (UTC).

Administrator's Page on AR_Wikisource : Ar_Wikisource:Administrators

Hi , Actually there is no big number of Active users in the Arabic sister projects , most of active users give attention now for growing the wikipedia project up , but we need Adminship in Wikisource and WikiBooks especially for organizing some pages and setting up the rules , we will repeat the Election after few monthes when the number of active users increase .--Chaos 09:04, 3 September 2005 (UTC)
  • I can see some support, so that's okay. You've been made a sysop on ar.wikisource, good luck on the project. Datrio 09:41, 4 September 2005 (UTC)
  • After this Wikipedia will be created, please make a page that would list all the administrators, and put a special information there saying you've requested sysop/bureaucrat status here, on Meta. Datrio 09:34, 4 September 2005 (UTC)
  • Please make me Sysop for the Malayalam Wikipedia. I find only myself as an active user there. I have made so many modifications in the Main Page and would like to make the entire place a standard one. Also I have saved the main page from vandalism many times. At times I waited for someone who does care about our page. But I'm sorry to say, no one was there to protect the pages.

Look out the following links. [[29]] [[30]] Hope my intensions are clear.

We have elected Admins in nds.wiktionary.org, see [33]. ("xy is mit 4:0 Stimmen as Administrater wählt worrn." translates into English as "xy has been elected to be Admin with 4:0 votes") The result is that the users "Slomox" and "Heiko Evermann" have been elected Admins. (SabineCretella missed the majority of votes.) Please adjust the access privileges accordingly. Besides there is the user "GerardM" who was granted temporary sysop privileges before we had the election. (He was running a robot and needed the possibility to delete pages.) He did not run for sysop election and was not elected. Now that there are elected Admins in nds.wiktionary.org, his temporary sysop privilege is no longer neccessary and should be removed, as he was not elected.

Since also some Admins voted for De-Sysop, I see this as a clear vote of distrust for this user and take away his Sysop rights. I would recommend to this user that he tries to get again to an election for sysop. If he gets his rights back by just complaining everywhere he shows that he does not care about the trust of the community in his work... Sorry :-( Fantasy 21:26, 4 August 2005 (UTC)
Erm.. Fantasy, why did you put that here, after you took down his sysop flag? ;) In any case, I talked with the cs community - they agree that this decision is legitimate, even though there's a bit of controversy on the vote - 67% of people should be for his desysoping, but only 65.8% are for (...or 69%, if you'll ignore the two other votes). Anyway, I'll try to be up-to-date on this situation, as Czech and Polish are pretty common. Datrio 22:05, 4 August 2005 (UTC)
I got an email with the request to do it, and the right place to put the request would have been here, so I have put it here, that is why. I also don't like to do things without comment. Therefore I wrote here why I did it, and that it can be undone, if the one is crying too loud...

  • - the request was set there at the 29th of november.
  • - the comunity was informed on the general talk page.

Thank you. --Tarawneh 23:37, 24 December 2005 (UTC)

Can you please summarize briefly why you need check user rights and why four people need it on a relatively small wikipedia. I will be happy to grant it once that is answered. Danny 23:18, 26 December 2005 (UTC)

The arabic community is growing fast, (too fast in the last month), with a ratio of almost 900 users per admin. Main Problems is the voting process, we live within a very hard minded culture, that takes every thing personally, almost all new users tries to force certain POV in the articles, especially the conflicts and religion articles (Edit-Wars in the middle east, is almost on all articles),forcing a POV, or playing a vote. In the last month we had a serious problem with C.V.s where people just voted to keep C.Vs for unknowns, which made us feel that Sock puppets were running lose , we translated the Sock puppets policy into Arabic. It was discussed, then the community started talking about checkuser. It was felt that having checkuser power withen the community, was important, since it would make the community more self-dependent, and secure. Three admins where named in order to vote for two, but the community had a tendency to have more. It was felt that it would be safer to have four admins, (each checks the other three, more secure, and safer); reveling user ID's in the middle east could mean hard time for the owner. My name was added by the community, and the four of us were given the same number of votes. (the four selected are all admins, and are the top four contributes in ar.wikipedia). --Tarawneh 06:58, 27 December 2005 (UTC)
Done, though with some hesitation. Please let me know immediately if there are any problems with this. I share your concern that revealing IP's in the Middle East and the potential problems it could cause. Danny 09:30, 27 December 2005 (UTC)
Thanks. The activation was announced in the V.P., we will keep you informed with any relevants --Tarawneh 16:35, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

hi, next is editors on hy supporting your request on hy. oscar, nov 15 2005
But actually there are only 3 users (and I think they even don't speak Armenian) without ANY contibutions. I even suspect some of them, because the page [[[:b:hy:Wikibooks:General_disclaimer|General_disclaimer]]] was modified on 28 October 2005 and was all filled with links to an external adult (maybe illegal) site and after that the next day a user "Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason" registered. Of course I cleared that page (you can learn it from history), but I cannot make any actions against that. I am also sure that I will receive no support, because all these users just registered and are not intended to make any contributions. -- Ruben, 15 November 2005

Czech Wikipedia

Hi! We have created a brand new system for adminship voting on cs: Wikipedia recently. Now we'd like to ask for deadminship of those admins who chose not to reapply for their privileges (or, simply, are long gone), in accordance with the transitional provisions of the accepted rule. (You can see the new rules at cs:Project:RfA (in Czech, of course ;-) ), the voting results are archived at cs:Wikipedie:Žádost o práva správce/Archiv.)

So that we ask to desysop (and in one case, de-bureaucrat) the following users: Daniel Mayer (see a note below), Malýčtenář, Michal Jurosz, Miroslav MALOVEC, Mojza, Tompecina.

Note: I know that Daniel Mayer is a steward and an official of Wikimedia Foundation. He made a sysop himself in order to post a sitenotice about a fundraising drive. I don't know if this is common; I believe our community is big enough that we can post that notice ourselves, so there is no need for an "external admin". (I don't think it would be a big problem if Daniel Mayer kept the sysop rights, just I don't think he needs them and he has not received them from the community in a proper RfA vote.)

--Mormegil 14:56, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

I strongly oppose this. The voting was not regular; some users were banned (including myself) to prevent them participate in voting. -- V. Z. 15:26, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

Please see [37]. Thank you for your explanation. This is now official one? Or will it be another soon, as always? -- V. Z. 16:54, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

This debate may continue at Requests for comments/Cswiki issues. It has absolutely no relevancy to the RfA rule and voting. --Mormegil 15:42, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

This is a debate about hostile desysopping. I warn every steward to meet wishes of the clique which took over cs:, because otherwise the hostile takeover of cs: will be completed. -- V. Z. 16:50, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
I agree with Mormegil that this debate has no relevancy. Just to explain some statements made by V. Z.:
  1. There were no users banned "to prevent them participate in voting".
  2. There was just one user - V. Z. - banned during the whole period of voting; all other bans were for short time only.
  3. "The hostile takeover" is simply nonsense: no one from "old" admins refused to accept legitimacy of this voting. --Radouch 17:57, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
Radouch is one of the leaders of a group which at first deceitfully desysopped me (I won the elections, even they were irregular as well) and then even banned me till the end of my life for nothing. He is personal enemy of mine from reasons I don't know. He didn't hold his word, that's why his comments are not sound.
This debate has a big relevancy, because it is about whether involuntarily desysop very good sysops like Tomáš Pecina or Malý čtenář, or not. I am strongly against desysopping, because gang of Radouch should not prevail.
I was banned for my whole life, others were banned temporarily, I agree. The reason why they were banned was to intimidate them not to vote against the clique which now rules cs:.
Legitimacy of this voting has been refused by me (long time bureaucrat of cs:), Tomáš Pecina and maybe even Malý čtenář. -- V. Z. 08:56, 8 December 2005 (UTC) I understood position of Mr Pecina incorrectly and had bad presumption of Malý čtenář's views. Sorry. -- V. Z. 17:25, 9 December 2005 (UTC)
No, I accept legitimacy of the voting process at the Czech Wikipedia. --Maly ctenar 09:30, 8 December 2005 (UTC)
Maly, I would be happy to know what each of the people desysop think. Do they all accept the legitimacy of the vote ? Can you relay their opinion ? Thanks in advance. (Daniel Mayer can be excluded from this survey, he likely just forgot to unsysop himself last time he changed a mediawiki message). Anthere 09:36, 8 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Mojza wrote that he has no time now and sysop status is therefore useless for him [38]. --RuM 09:52, 8 December 2005 (UTC)
Miroslav MALOVEC hasn't been active on cs: since March 2004.
As noted above, all sysops appointed (by V. Z.) in the previous oligarchic/consensus/godking era could have asked to be confirmed in the new formal voting process; all those who did, were (see cs:Wikipedie:Žádost o práva správce/Archiv, "zvolen" means elected, "potvrzen/a" confirmed). Several didn't wish to do so (and Wikimol asked here explicitly to be de-sysopped already on 7 Nov; I wanted to save myself the bother :-) having not exercised the sysop rights/duties much lately anyway (see general decrease of activity of Michal Jurosz and Mojza). There might be some wiki-stress or disgruntlement present, but all were notified in due time and they certainly haven't questioned the legitimacy of the vote.
This leaves Tompecina, who is fully capable of speaking for himself and would probably object against my summary below as POV. He has been a supporter of V. Z. in his conflict with the overwhelmingly large part of the active community; after a rule on orthography (which was the original spark of the conflict) was passed in a form not allowing for their minority view, he founded a "fork" server for their articles on legal topics they had specialized in and since then has participated only in discussions on the cswiki. I don't recall his exact statements; he has never expressed interest in running for a sysop again, but whether because it's very probable he'd lose or that he refuses the whole process as illegitimate, I can't say.
--Maly ctenar 13:30, 8 December 2005 (UTC) (BTW, it's not a name, so better don't shorten it)
It is a little bit surprising for me. Malý čtenář was recently banned for 7 days in completely unsound verdict. I protested against it in my blog and I asked one sysop who I trust to unban him. (Since I am now banned forever I could not do it at cs:.) My actions had no impact. Tomáš Pecina acted independently and without him Malý čtenář would be banned even today. Now Mr Pecina is desysopped and nobody else will protect Malý čtenář against despotism of today rulers of cs:. His choice, I wash my hands. -- V. Z. 14:52, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

OK, I will write a letter to the Foundation, because this situation is no longer bearable. -- V. Z. 09:29, 8 December 2005 (UTC)
After the comment of Malý čtenář my intention seems to be useless. -- V. Z. 14:52, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

I don't think it to be a good policy to desysop anyone involuntarily, except in cases of serious misconduct, I believe it to be very impolite to do so without even asking their opinion (it may come as a big surprise, but not all Czech sysops are completely uncapable of speaking English), but I am rather indifferent on this issue. It was a majority decision and I accept it as such. --Tompecina 11:20, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

two things. Several projects chose to desysop people for other reasons than blatant misconduct. Here, on meta, people are desysoped if inactive. On the german and dutch wikipedia, there is an annuel confirmation for sysop, if not reconfirmed, sysops are removed their status. So, it does not seem strange that cs chose to do this
the other point is related to language; We (well, I in this case) did not *choose* to desysop you. The cs community did. It is not my job to inform you, but the job of the cs community, or at least of the one who made the request here. So, if you think you have not been informed, I am sorry, but it is not my role to do so, so language is not an issue. Anthere
I said that in my opinion it was not a good policy, not that it was illegitimate. The more so that given the highly tense atmosphere at cs.wiki, sysop status becomes part of the power-structure rather than a service to the community. Those who have the coveted admin status can block or ban others, and they often do. The last 7-day blocking of Maly ctenar was a case in point. Secondly, if you view yourself just an operator of the Desysop button rather than an officer with enormous powers and responsibilities, I see no point in arguing with you: one does not discuss the court verdict with the executioner, does he? The choice is always yours. --Tompecina 11:41, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

I would like to add, I am not against voting new sysops as a principle and it was my fault it was not implemented in cs: when I was a bureaucrat. But I am strongly against desysopping in situation when I am banned forever and others are targets of FUD to make them not to vote against the wishes of the clique. Therefore I consider desysopping of these victims as plainly illegitimate and voting about new sysops as doubtful. -- V. Z. 17:21, 9 December 2005 (UTC)



I do recommend the stewards to archive this section or to lock this section, the community of cs:wiki is not very amused to read such comments here every three or five hours, which do not belong to the normal business of the wiki. Sorry to inconvience you. -jkb- 18:59, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

Stop injustice in cs: and you won't read such polemics. It is not normal to misuse your rights for banning Mr. Vaňo, Malý čtenář, me, and others. -- V. Z. 19:28, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

I have given you sysop status on Azeri (but not on Turkmen). Let's see how it goes here first. Danny 02:49, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. User does not speak language well. Has politicised the WP already by changing it from "Azeri Wikipedia" to "Azerbaijani Turkish Wikipedia", which no Azerbaijanis call the language. He's locked the mainpage so it says "Azerbaijani Turkish Wikipedia". I feel his status as a non-Azerbaijani should be emphasised here -- although Turkish is closely related, there are still many differences between the two which he is very bad with. I say we wait for a real Azeri, or somebody who is fluent in the language at least. --Node ue 01:16, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
First of all there is no advantage for me to be a sysop in Azeri wikipedia. This is from my talk page az:User talk:Ugur Basak Sizin çalişmalarizdan təşəkur elirəm. can be translated I thank you, for your works. az:Talk:Main Page Bir dağidici istifadəçi ön səhifəni xarablayıb, "bu Rus sozü du" filan səhifəyə artirib. this sentence is the reason for protecting main page, that sentence translates,"Don't take advantage of main page for your self purposes like 'This is a russian saying". (Also i had already said, below being a sysop in this wiki is better) Thanks--Ugur Basak 09:30, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
it's better for me. if you've askes me to choose one of them, i chose this. I hope i can attract more people to this wiki. Thanks--Ugur Basak 23:37, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
By the way i didn't write "Azerbaijani Turkish Wikipedia". This was there since i've edited Main Page.--Ugur Basak 19:05, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Agree I believe Ugur can be a valuable help to revive activities in Azeri Wikipedia. There has been no real work on Azeri Wikipedia for months. I noticed a vandalization on the first page that was not fixed for days; it was obvious that there was no Admin. He was the only one that did something about it by removing the comment and protecting the Main Page. Although Ugur may not have the best fluency in Azeri, but has necessary understanding of the language to help us with administration and adding new materials. Please note that he is bringing a lot of knowledge from another well-established Wikipedia (Turkish). Calling Azerbaijani language ""Azerbaijani Turkish" in Turkey and up to a point in Southern Azerbaijan (Iran) is a norm and Ugur can not be accused of bringing his political views here based on that argument alone. I am glad that Ugur is showing interest to work with Azeri Wikipedia and I back his request. My Best regards to you all for working on this project. Mehrdad 15:55, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
If Azeri is your native language, as it seems to be, I think you would make a much, much, much better sysop than him. And Turkey is not Azerbaijan -- what the language is called in Turkey is irrelevant. --Node ue 19:32, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Dear Node ue I understand your concern, about a non native speaker having an Admin status, but I can assure you that in this instance there is nothing to worry. I as a native Azeri speaker completely support granting the Administrator status for Ugur. He has already done enormous help in making the Azerbaycani Wikipedia more readable, by translating the titles and messages. He has done so, while consulting with the native speakers and users. As a result of his recent activity there are more participations and registrations in Azeri Wikipedia. Mehrdad 09:13, 17 November 2005 (UTC)

Interlingua Wikipedia

  • (I've since learned that I was wrong in some assumptions and received more information as to the real culprits in this deletions matter, my apologies to Jcb, sincerely User:ILVI 05:08, 25 November 2005 (UTC))
    At the ia.wiki there has risen a great outcry over the article deletions by user Jcb who was granted admin status there despite not knowing the language or seeming to care how many times he was asked to stop deleting articles without discussion. I've blocked his IP on ia.wiki until the matter is resolved. Several strong contributors were disgusted to the point of giving up on the project and I found this situation intolerable. There has been quite a history of malicious deletions on the ia.wiki and I would ask that any further granting of priviledges to folks requesting adminship at ia.wiki be asked that they at least be able to use the language and communicate with other users of the wikipedia. This user in question kept making comments in Dutch despite being asked several times to use Interlingua which is the language of the wiki or English which many know. Looking at the article number counts will confirm that at times the ia.wiki has undergone hundreds of deletions at a time. Some have called this "purges" of articles that didn't belong there, but how can someone make this decision without speaking the language and without regard for the contributors who in many cases had spent hours of editing on articles of interest to the community. There are several theories as to why this abuse of the ia.wiki is going on, I won't post those here, only to say that this behavior wouldn't be tolerated in other wikis either. I'm sure. ILVI 11:28, 23 November 2005 (UTC)
    • i responded here. oscar 12:37, 23 November 2005 (UTC)
      • I responded here as well. Just a few comments here: I did not delete hunderds of articles. I normally communicate there in English (not Dutch), and I can read interlingua most of it. In contrast to what ILVI states I've never been asked to stop deleting articles. Ilvi blocked me infinite WITHOUT even trying to contact me in advance. Ilvi accused me of mass deletion from certain IPs, but those IPs are definitely not mine. This must be a misunderstanding. I unblocked myself to participate in the discussion as linked above. Waiting for an explanation I will temporary not edit elsewhere in IA.wikipedia. Jcb 18:07, 23 November 2005 (UTC)
        • Please, Jcb accept my apology in this regard. I was trying to get the answer as to why many articles were blanked out, deleted, and at times new articles disappeared. One user called it "purges" of articles. I've found out that it was actually a matter of prejudice and had nothing to do with you. Perhaps for the future if you post article titles in an "Articles for deletion" page there would be a warning that these would be deleted soon. This may dispell any doubts about whether the deletions are warranted or not. I should also mention that your valuable help in the ia.wiki with undoing vandalism attacks and spam attacks is very much appreciated. Sincerely, User:ILVI 05:08, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

Esperanto-vikipedio (Sysop)

I posted my request for sysophood in Esperanto-Wikipedia on October, 12 [41]. During the appointed 2 week period 6 persons voted for me (among them one of currently active administrators). One person, who initially voted against, withdrew his negative voice. The main reason for me to become a sysop was to improve the Esperanto-translation and retranslate some technical pages and messages (since I am a native speaker of Esperanto, it could help much). Unfortunately our beaurocrat is not here at the moment and I would like to start improving the pages right now, if it's possible.

English wikipedia (checkuser)

Anthere recently announced that the checkuser policy had become official [43]. The checkuser policy allows arbitration committees to designate users whom they wish to utilize checkuser. The en arbitration committee has had lengthy discussions on this matter, with Jimbo's full knowledge and participation. We have selected the following users, all arbitrators, as our initial group:

I will be happy to do this provided that no one opposes granting these admins these powers. As in any steward move, it should be open for discussion here. Remember, we are not discussing the rule, but rather if, given that Checkuser rights exist, these people should be granted them and for how long. Danny 02:40, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

I think that this new priviledge should be used very conservatively. With that in mind, I would like to suggest that instead of large group of five new editors with the capability to use Checkuser rights, that the en.wikipedia should start of with just two new additional editors with the capability. As a suggestion for which ones, the two who have been ArbComm members the longest. BlankVerse 10:20, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
I oppose. I suggest waiting for the Arbitration Committee elections (or appointments) in December, and granting it to people who become arbitrators. Two of the people mentioned above (Kelly and Jayjg) have only temporary positions (as they were appointed by Jimbo Wales), out of process with how the other arbitrators were chosen. I think the English language Wikipedia can survive until the new Arbitration Committee members take their seats. Talrias 12:15, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
Agree with Talrias. Two out of those 5 people I do not trust to use the privelege responsibly. --Node ue 01:18, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
I quite agree with Talrias. — Dan | Talk 19:58, 10 November 2005 (UTC)
I agree with Talrias. (insert substantial reasoning here). I'd like to see the "kinks" in the policy worked out too, but that's more of a wish, I suppose. WhiteNight T | @ | C 02:29, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
Despite the fact that there is Board-approved policy on this (meaning that this request should have been procedurally granted without delay instead of creating yet another discussion of a matter that is supposedly already completely resolved), I am withdrawing my name from this request in the hopes that doing so will perhaps accelerate the process of getting someone to help David Gerard deal with the huge tide of work to be done on en. If and when you people actually agree to follow policy, I'll resubmit the request. Kelly Martin 15:30, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
But Kelly, that's silly - only Raul has actually been "elected". Either we strike four of the five names, or none at all.
James F. (talk) 09:44, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
The chief problem with this request that I see is that we haven't yet published the 3 months in the past and longer logs of all the previous requests (requests, not results of the check), so the community can't see how the ability is being used or misused. Many of our problem areas are where we don't have broad oversight (deletion, visible to only admins, deletion of images, visible to nobody, because the image is gone). Broad community oversight and ability to correct is the core of how the wiki social controls work and it's absent here. Jamesday 16:25, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
Public logs? YMBJ. These are not wiki controls; they are not wiki tools at all. They are for very very highly trusted individuals to take some slack from the developers. They are nothing to do with the wikis per se.
James F. (talk) 09:44, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

I'm unstriking Kelly Martin. Following our current policy, please link to the local announcement of the Arbitration Committee on en.Wikipedia, that en:user:Raul654, en:user:Fred Bauder, en:user:Kelly Martin, en:user:The_Epopt and en:user:Jayjg, all members of the ArbCom, should be granted this status. Please move all the relevant discussion to the local village pump. Datrio 15:39, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

What local discussion? The policy says that the arbitration committee is to decide who gets it. We agreed on our private mailing list (prior to the finalization of the policty) which 5 people to include in the initial batch. Once the policy announcement was made by Anthere, I put in this request in here, and announced it on IRC and w:en:goings-on, and the signpost tip-line. Raul654 00:19, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
I'll also add that I agree completely with Kelly Martin - this request should have been granted as a matter of procedure, and instead the stewards are enforcing policy as they see fit instead of what it actually says. Raul654 00:21, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
So you admint you made your descision before recent events. I would suggest reviewing it in the light of the current situation.Geni 00:42, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
Yes, of course we discussed and decided things before the policy was finalized. The policy has been under discussion for something like 2 months now. We started discussing things weeks ago when peopel were yelling at us because of vandalbot attacks that could not be stopped without David Gerard running check. People were screaming more people to have permission to use it. The fact that it took them so long to officially announce policy should not be an impediment for us figuring out what to do when it finally did pass; to say otherwise is just plain dumb. Raul654 02:03, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
The situation two months ago is not the sitation now. People may have been asking for more people to have cheackuser but they were not asking for all the people on your list. You must deal with the situation here and now. This means accepting Kelly Martin's withdrawal. Any other course of action is less than optimum. You know as well as I do that you can get by on less than five.Geni 02:47, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
I have no qualms about Kelly withdrawing her name from consideration; why Datrio restored it is beyond me. However, the point remains that there is a request for 4 users on the english wikipedia to be granted this power; a request which follows policy to the letter and which should already have been granted with little fanfare. Raul654 03:01, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
heh going by my past experence on requests for permission a delay of a few days is nothing out of the odinary although that was quite a while ago.Geni 04:08, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

Here is what CheckUser Policy#Access says, "On a wiki with a (Wikimedia-approved) arbitration committee only editors approved by arbitrators may have CheckUser status. They should be at least two so that they can mutually control their activity. After agreement, simply list the candidate on Requests for permissions" FredBauder 03:42, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

stewards are allowed some leeway. However it seems fairly simple. At least one memeber of the comittee who wrote that policy is a steward. Ask them to sort it.Geni 04:08, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
There is? Please point to him.
OTOH, this is not the point. The Board has written a policy, and asked for it to be implemented. It seems... incongrous to have to find a "tame" Steward to ask them to carry out their own policy.
James F. (talk) 09:48, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
Argh ;). The only problem with me right now is the fact, that the en.Wikipedia community might not be aware of who will be granted CheckUser rights. Just please write it somewhere on en.Wikipedia, that the members of ArbCom will be given CheckUser status. That's all I want, and it's neither against the policy, nor against common sense. The very moment the English Wikipedians will be notified about this, these users will be granted CheckUser status. Datrio 09:52, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
Okay, done it by myself. Raul654, Fred Bauder, Kelly Martin, The Epopt and Jayjg have been granted CheckUser access at the English Wikipedia. Informed the community on this fact over at en:Wikipedia:Goings-on. Datrio 10:10, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

I would also be more comfortable with an announcement of these changes on en:Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee at least, and ideally a moratorium (except for in pressing emergencies) of the use of the privilege for the "temporarily appointed" members until the upcoming election. dab 11:42, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

First I want to thank Datrio. With only one person, who was not always available and didn't have much time to do it, we were being forced to guess about a number of situations (based on editing style, etc.). Some of us need to do quite a bit of work to get up to speed on using checkuser anyway, so this is just a start on having this resource available as needed. As to posting to Wikipedia, feel free to post and discuss this in any forum you think it is useful, including any criticisms of policy. As to our status as arbitrators, almost all of us are either temporary or due to be reaffirmed in December. However, we will probably still be available to do this work even if not reelected as we do not simply exile an arbitrator who resigns or is not reelected. Being an arbitrator is both hard work and liable to get you into trouble and we are aware of this from personal experience. I know our actions, or inactions, can sometimes be dismaying, but we are all trying very hard to serve you. FredBauder 13:34, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

I noticed that Raul mentioned the Signpost (en:WP:SIGN) above. I'll make sure a story gets in about this when the Signpost is published on Monday. Thanks! Flcelloguy 15:33, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

Cree Wikipedia

I would like to request sysop/bureaucrat or admin access on cr.wikipedia

  • language code: cr
  • local request page: none exists
  • My userpage on that wiki: cr:User:Nickshanks

There are no admins on the Cree wikipedia, and nor are there any registered users who speak the language (!). I would like to do some housekeeping (deleting junk pages), and try to recruit Cree speakers from other websites who can contribute. Could I be given admin or preferably bureaucrat powers on that wikipedia? I'm not sure how to go about that given that there are no existing admins nor place to ask, so I ask here. — Nicholas Shanks 20:03, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

I'll fulfill this request, just please put the following (translated) notice on some local page (prefferably your translation of [[Wikipedia:Administrators]]:
[[User:Nickshanks]] has been made a sysop on the Cree Wikipedia. If you oppose this idea, please notify Wikimedia stewards at [[m:Requests for permissions]].
Well, that's all. You're now a sysop, good luck on the project. Datrio 20:11, 3 November 2005 (UTC)
I think you should have waited for the user to have created the page and made the request Datrio. I think, as a matter of respect for editors over there, that if the page is not created and his name added in the next few days, I will unsysop him. So, please do not archive this page. Ant
  • Oppose. User does not speak language. Simple "housekeeping" isn't a valid reason to request adminship -- pages needing deletion can be reported on Meta. Previous cases where people who speak little or no of the language have been sysopped have sometimes been very bad (na: w/Belgian man, mi: w/Perl and later Robin Patterson). --Node ue 01:16, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi, I would also like to contribute as an administrator on Azeri Wikipedia, I'm one of the oldest contributers in Turkish Wikipedia, I have also a few edits in English. I'm currently adding and editing basic templates Alperen.

Here are my user pages: http://az.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Alperen http://tr.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Alperen

  • Oppose. User does not speak language well. I feel his status as a non-Azerbaijani should be emphasised here -- although Turkish is closely related, there are still many differences between the two which he is very bad with. I say we wait for a real Azeri, or somebody who is fluent in the language at least. --Node ue 01:16, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
I oppose Node ue's opposition, becuase every individual in Turkey may speak and understand Azerbaijani language, because they're actually very close languages like Britain English and American English. There're very little differences. I also do not appreciate his/her opposition if he's not a Turkic person, becuase if he/she's not a Turcolog he shall never know, how close these languages are. I also do not appreciate his copy/paste comments, and I do not understand the logic here. Because an opposition which is valid for an individual is not necessarily valid for the other. Thanks.

P.S. I should also note that a German person who continuously makes grammatical errors became Administrator in Turkish Wikipedia, isn't it a logical contradiction from Node ue's point? --Alperen 14:34, 19 November 2005 (UTC)
