Venda wikipedia

I request sysop access on "ve.wikipedia":

Although I do not read or write Venda, I am volunteering to serve as an interim sysop until a person fluent in Venda can be found. --Dario vet 08:11, 14 September 2006 (UTC)[]

i can see no local request of yours, could you please add it to what i think is the local request page? thanks, oscar 13:14, 14 September 2006 (UTC)[]
Since there is no administrator for ve.wikipedia to implement any changes in privileges, wouldn't a local request on Venda amount to pissing in the wind? (This might be just my ignorance of the way the system works, but it would be useful information as we try to recruit competent sysops for other un-administered African languages.) Malangali 21:59, 14 September 2006 (UTC)[]
There seem to be no active Venda speaking users on now, but we should always assume someone may show up at any time. So the request is not wasted. Venda is a South African language and has the potential to quickly take off. FredBauder 13:21, 16 September 2006 (UTC)[]

Gaeilge Vicipéid - Irish Wikipedia

I request sysop access on ga.wikipedia:

The request was made at ga:Plé Vicipéide:Riarthóirí on 30 July 2006, but no one has responded to it. No votes in favor or against Hoopydink becoming an admin at ga:. Considering he applied for adminship his very first day at ga:, though, and that this is his only edit to article space, I'd be inclined to vote against. Angr 07:33, 30 September 2006 (UTC)[]
That's fine, actually. Though I am a native Irish speaker, I don't really contribute to the ga.wikipedia. I had planned to start concentrating there after I finished up a project on the en.wikipedia, but then I became an administrator there and that has been taking up much of my time on Wikipedia. Vicipéide:Riarthóirí is inactive (there's really no pressing for more administrators at this point, so it's not really a big deal or a page to watch), so when I become a bit more experienced in the ga.wikipedia, I'll resubmit a request here if I still feel that I want admin access there.

You'll have to explain that to me. Our rules (currently) are that bureaucrats/sysops are elected with 51%. So why ask notafish ? She has got no special rights on wikinews (except she is sysop, but that's a long story). Anyway, I don't get this. Faager 15:21, 6 October 2006 (UTC)[]
The main problem about wikinews is not whether it needs a bureaucrat or nor but if it will survive the dictatorship of Faager who has not created new entries for months but destroys with an apparent pleasure most of mines. Today, after I used not a single word of personal text but just paraphrasing sources in French, he had denied the right of publication of my article about w:Fabien Barthez retirement and I was even expelled from the French wikinews few hours later.

And I second that. There is no "strong support" and more importantly, with 4/5 active users, I have reasons to doubt the need for a bureaucrat on fr:Wikinews altogether. However, Walter, it is your job, not mine to say whether you grant this access or not. I have nothing against Jacques as is, he has indeed, proved his attachment to the project and will probably be a good bureaucrat.

According to present situation, voting about removal of his admin rights will be ended at Monday (in this moment 15 users are for removing admin rights and 4 are against [9]), but his obstruction is making a lot of harm to Serbian Wikipedia and community there. I would like to say that this user also supported troll en:User:Bormalagurski (a number of times blocked on English Wikipedia; indefinitely blocked on Serbian Wikipedia; on Meta he is using sockpuppets like User:The SrWiki User) in false representation of sr:User:Славен Косановић self-asking removal of sysop rights, including false representation that consensus on Serbian Wikipedia is made to remove Slaven's rights ([10]). --Millosh 21:10, 5 October 2006 (UTC)[]

Umm, no! The user got desysopped for violating his rights and he constantly kept adding himself to the admin list. He wouldn't stop trolling, so he was blocked - something which was inevitable.

Hehe, the bureaucrats are the ones who voted to remove his powers and they're NOT going to restore them, they're not stupid, they just got a free favour from an inexperienced admin at Meta. Check for yourself, the voting ends on October 9th. What day is it today? --The SrWiki User 22:51, 5 October 2006 (UTC)[]
Actually, we don't have many bureaucrats now, but this user (User:The SrWiki User or en:User:Bormalagurski) is a troll who made a lot of harm to our community, including, for example, abusing en:wiki admin "in the name of Serbian Wikipedia community". As I am involved party in this issue, I will not ban this user for trolling Meta again, but I suggest to other admins to do so. --Millosh 22:48, 5 October 2006 (UTC)[]
User Millosh voted against Verlor and it is understandable that he wants Verlor to stay desysoped, but THE VOTING IS NOT OVER YET, anyone can check this here. Please give Verlor his priviledges back. Thank you, --The SrWiki User 22:51, 5 October 2006 (UTC)[]
SR has now 39 sysops. And 6 are bureaucrats from my POV that is realtive a lot of bureaucrats. In any case engough to do something if needed about this. --Walter 22:54, 5 October 2006 (UTC)[]
Well, almost all the admins and bureaucrats voted to REMOVE Verlor's admin powers. Why should they return it when they don't want to? i.e. THEY ARE BREAKING THE RULES BY REQUESTING A DE-SYSOP BEFORE VOTING HAS ENDED, THE PROOF IS THERE, look for yourself. --The SrWiki User 22:56, 5 October 2006 (UTC)[]
This is something that has never happened in the history of all Wikipedias - the desysoping of a user in the middle of the voting. I hereby request the desysoping of ALL admins on sr wiki that support this illegal move. --The SrWiki User 22:58, 5 October 2006 (UTC)[]
That’s happened because Verlor is completely out of reason trolling project all this days. He was talking about conspiracies with "West" money against users of Wikipedia and similar stupidities. That was absolutely stupid and insupportable for everyone on Serbian Wikipedia community. And I confirm MIllosh and Filip and confirm that we are doing the best with this urgent desysopyng. Now he is blocked and over of the story. --Slaven Kosanovic 23:10, 5 October 2006 (UTC)[]

blocked for 1 week (i will move this discussion to the talk page of this page). oscar 23:55, 5 October 2006 (UTC)[]

Desysop on vo.wp

Hello, I request de-sysop on vo.wp. I was sysopped (at 20:56, 14. Okt. 2006 (UTC)) only temporarily to clean up there. I'm finished with that now (deleting 111 unneccessary wrong-spell redirects and vandal-nonsense pages. And I found a user who is active there permanently (but has no sysop rights unfortunately). It's better he/she(?) is sysop there than me who is not active on vo.wp. (Cf. #vo.wikipedia (point 4.1.7.) on this page here.) Thank you. :o) Grtx, --Thogo 22:36, 14 October 2006 (UTC)[]

Recently created Wikipedias

Hello, I'm from the Incubator. Due to a recent wiki creating, I request a temporary adminship on these wikis to fix errors imported by TimStarling's Incubator import bot for a very short of time - three days should be enough. The wikis concerned are: wuu, mzn, new, eml, hsb, nov, pag, bar, bpy, diq, roa-tara, cbk-zam, zh-classical, cu, ru-sib, cdo. My username is Timichal on all these wikis. Thank you very much! — Timichal 18:08, 2 October 2006 (UTC)[]

I'd like to clean up those Wikis which still include many old (partly blanked) spam pages and I'd protect the Wiki relevant pages like the main page.
