Administrator access

Irish Wikipedia

Hi! I'd like administrator access on [Wikipedia as Gaeilige]. My userpage can be found here. I submitted a local request many months ago and the page hasn't been edited since. I'm a native Irish speaker, and have had some experience on other Wikimedia projects. I'm currently an admin on the English Wikipedia and am also an OTRS volunteer. Thanks in advance for considering my request! Gaillimh 18:38, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Spanish wikiquote

Requesting sysop for q:es:Macalla, local page at q:es:Wikiquote:Candidaturas_a_administrador, the candidate passed after finding out that the oppose was from a disruptive banned user and thus voided. So it turns out that the user did manage to reach the approval threshold drini [es:] [commons:] 22:24, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

  Done.--Shanel 05:59, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

English wikipedia

I've recently changed usernames on the English Wikipedia, and would like admin permissions activated for my new account, en:User:Sethant. I don't really care whether my old account, en:User:Seth Ilys keeps the admin flag or not.

Thanks. Sethant 16:48, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Why you don't ask a local Bureaucrat? -- MichaelFrey 16:59, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Arabic wikibooks

I request administrator access. The vote took place here.

Thank you. --Mimouni 16:03, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

It looks like your request is only a day old. The vote should go at least a week, after which you will become and admin.--Cspurrier 23:18, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Inuktitut Wikipedia

I would like to request permanent sysop status for iu:User:Qrc2006. He has recently revived the Inuktitut language edition and is the only active user who speaks Inuktitut. He has since put great efforts into turning what was a collection of sub-stubs into something that could one day become a real encyclopaedia. At present, the only other sysop iu:User:Thogo is absent and this situation might continue for a while, during which spam keeps accumulating on that Wiki. I have asked him, whether he would agree to volunteer as admin [2], and he has agreed. [3] Since he is the only active user (except for Thogo, Steinbach and me, who just help a little bit but do not understand any Inuktitut), holding regular admin elections makes very little sense.--Johannes Rohr 21:06, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Language Code: iu
  • Local Request Page: (none)
  • Local User Page: iu:User:Qrc2006.
  Done - for three months. If no other active fluent speakers turn up in that time, we can consider making him a permanent sysop. Regards — Dan | talk 16:04, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Aromanian Wikipedia

I request admin acces.

The Aromanian wikipedia is oftenly vandalised and there seems to be no admins present, to block vandalisers and to protect some pages. I've developed recenty a work of reorganising the pages and it is quite uncomfortable to work in vain.

I am a at Romanian Wikipedia as well as the English and Aromanian one. The latter also with IP.

  • Language Code: roa-rup
  • Local Request Link: (none)
  • Local User Page: ro:User:Alex:D

Strong oppose - POV pusher and no vandalism (he's claiming adminship under false pretext). See also the discussion here. He can't even speak the language.--Slavomakedonec 23:23, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Your only contributions were REI-ing the pages, so you shouldn't be so brave. At least i'm trying to do something there. And take a look at other wikipedias don't POV
REI is the correct Aromanian usage as specified by a native speaker. Pushing Romanian agenda on the Aromanian Wikipedia is the last thing anyone needs.--Slavomakedonec 23:31, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
  Not done Please first gain consensus within the community. Effeietsanders 23:28, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
The only little problem is There is no community!!! All you can see there are bots and
Then why's an admin needed bearing in mind that the problems you claim adminship for are non-existent?--Slavomakedonec 23:31, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
When you come and do repeated POV changes in original pages there is a problem (called vandalism). I don't care if you do it 100 times. That is not a constructive mode to build that wp. I don't know some words in aromanian but I can fully understand the texts (obviously,. I'm a romanian) and it will be no problem to use it. Plus, that is Aromanian wikipedia. Not vlach or other nicknames. Example of vandalism: [4] Still, the macedonian constitution speak about Macedonian language, as oficial one. You are just trying to make them bulgarians (sort of).ro:User:Alex:D
You have been told before, I shall tell you again. There is no such thing as "machedonica" in the Aromanian language. Confirmed by a native speaker. Aromanians call that language vurgãreashce, and call the language of Bulgaria vurgarica (I'm suprised you're not trying to impose the Romanian bulgară word for that as well). Aren't Aromanians entitled to their own vocabulary??? Only foreign Romanian words must be used. Sorry, edits you disagree with are not necessarily vandalism.--Slavomakedonec 00:03, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Klingon Wiktionary

tlh.wiktionary (users <admins, bots, bureaucrats, checkusers, oversight>, edits, log)

I request sysop access.

There are currently no sysops (other then Brion) and no bureaucrats on this project. We have over 600 articles, and growing, which is more than some other constructed languages. Please give us a chance to prove ourselves.

I am a sysop on English Wiktionary.

Thank you. Jonathan Webley 21:25, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Hmmm, I dont know whether this wiki should be closed though... (like tlhwiki) Effeietsanders 23:18, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
Hello Jon. Please reach a consensus with the local community first; create a request page at the appropriate place and notify any active users (there is at least one other active user). —{admin} Pathoschild 08:03:10, 04 March 2007 (UTC)
qay'be' (no problem) Jonathan Webley 09:47, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
Klingon is the property of Paramount Pictures; this entire wiki is a copyright violation. Jimbo closed tlhwiki by this principle; this wiki should probably be closed as well. — Dan | talk 20:37, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
Exactly what is copyrighted? There are many articles about Star Trek, including within Wikipedia, including about the Klingon language. Do they too fall foul of copyright? All editors of all Wiktionaries use dictionaries. We are just doing the same thing. Consider a scientist who devises a new chemical, coins a word for it and publishes his method. His published work is copyright and can’t be copied, but the new word is not copyright and could be included in any dictionary without attribution or threat of legal sanction. Has there ever been a legal challenge to the use of Klingon? Jonathan Webley 14:22, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
It was not closed on copyright grounds. It was closed because it's a joke to have this in what is supposed to be an educational project. Angela 01:28, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Klingon Wiktionary

tlh.wiktionary (users <admins, bots, bureaucrats, checkusers, oversight>, edits, log)

I request sysop access for myself and the other main contributor, MInDu'Donbe'.

This is a resubmission of my earlier request. We now have had a local request page, clearly linked from our main page, for over a week.

There are currently no sysops (other then Brion) and no bureaucrats on this project. Without a local sysop our site is exposed to vandalism and spam.

Thank you. Jonathan Webley 14:13, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Aren't Klingon wikis going to be dropped due to copyright concerns? drini [es:] [commons:] 14:14, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
It's not possible to copyright either words or grammar. For example, there seems to be no issue with words such as Muggle or articles such as Klingon. Even Google approves. Jonathan Webley 14:38, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
I thought it was going to be moved to Wikia, such as with the Klingon Wikipedia? Titoxd(?!?) 19:31, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
  Done - A while ago I mentioned the issue to Kat and she said she would ask the board about the fate of the Klingon wikis. In the meantime, I've fulfilled this request, as there seems little reason not to do so. — Dan | talk 19:39, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

OK. I will email him to tell him that he needs to make more edits and contributions on Uyghur Wikipedia in order to qualify as sysop. (He was the one who gave me the Uyghur translations for interface System Messages)--Jose77 02:50, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

Technical glitch. drini [es:] [commons:] 03:45, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the response. Just to clarify and make sure that it is indeed not updated: the log shows that Jon Harald Søby changed group membership for User:Essjay@metawiki from boardvote, sysop to boardvote . Is there no log for showing removal of boardvote? Thanks for the clarification. Flcelloguy (A note?) 03:52, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
The boardvote level has been removed from the interface (it is presumable archaic? I don't know why), so it was impossible for us to do it; brion removed it manually. Jon Harald Søby 03:56, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Temporary desysoping an admin on the french Wikipédia

Further to this decision of the Arbitration Committee of the french Wikipedia taken today, it has been decided that the sysop rights of Manchot were to be suspended for a duration of two weeks.

We could of course ask to the relevant sysop to just not make any use of its sysop rights for that period, but we would prefer that his sysop rights be actually suspended. Did I give you sufficient information to take this demand into account?

Can you take care of this? Can you suspend its sysop rights on the franch wikipedia as from for instance tomorrow, 6th March starting 01:00 am (i.e. now), and give the rights back 2 weeks later, on the 20th of March at 01:00 am ? Or should we come back in 2 weeks time to ask you to give him its sysop rights back? Bradipus 23:48, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Darkoneko mentionned on the fr:sysop bulletin board that he would take care of it. Thank you. We do not need any further help. Bradipus 00:03, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Danny Wool on various projects

As it appears that Danny is no longer working for the foundation, I would think that his self-granted rights on other projects should be removed:

  • User:Danny@hewiki
  • User:Danny@tpiwiki
  • User:Danny@hewikisource
  • User:Danny@klwiki

Self processed, but after election:

  • User:Danny@enwikisource
And likely this non-self granted permission on commons:
  • User:Danny@commonswiki ([6])

Access on other projects appears to have already been removed (either by himself before de-stewarding himself or by other stewards).

Manx Wikipedia

I request a week of sysop access at this Wikipedia. There are no sysops there, and a considerable backlog at gv:Wikipedia:Articles for deletion and gv:Category:Articles for deletion. I will create a list of protected articles to prevent recreation of spam pages, and delete the articles that appear to be nonsense.

--M/ 16:41, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
I requested a week because I thought nobody would grant permission until Monday (can only work on weekends with other wikis). However, since it was done this fast, I was able to clear the backlog, delete some empty articles, and create the protected titles page. It is safe to remove the bit now, as the wiki is now as clean as one could have it. Thanks again. -- ReyBrujo 20:15, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

Fake accounts on several wikies

Someone (probably using openproxies, in order not to be traced back, which could be interesting to be checked anyway) is creating several fake accounts on several wikies in my name with the purpose of provoking, vandalizing pages and to troll around. So far, I have found three of them made on wikies other than the italian one, where I am an admin:

There might be others, or they might be created shortly. At the moment I have legitimate accounts on commonswiki, eswiki, itwikinews, itwikisource and itwiki. I do kindly request to declare any other account fake and to block them. Thank you in advance for your kind help --Piero Montesacro 00:25, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Update. At the moment I own and control the following legitimate userid's: cowiki, commonswiki, dewiki, eswiki, frwiki, itwikinews, itwiki, itwikisource, metawiki, ptwiki. Again my thanks! --Piero Montesacro 23:38, 6 March 2007 (UTC)
