Hello, I can't see a voting there, as it seems the community is too small for a regular voting I suggest You apply for temporary adminship, it is technically the same. Thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:35, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

There needs to be a community consensus of some sort for this (preferably voting). Is there such a page on wiki? If not, you may want to request temporary status instead. --FiliP × 12:53, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Symane and Vipuser@ganwikipedia

We request Bureaucrat access@ganwikipedia. We are the site proposal users and the main editors of gan wikipedia in incubator site. When the gan wikipedia built formally in May 26th, we need the founction of bureaucrat rights to authorize the bot request and maintence the interface of the site. so we nominate two users requesting bureaucrat rights in the site and win common sense of serveral users including the acceptence of the native speaker proposal users. So please authorize the bureaucrat access to Symane and Vipuser. The main work of Symane is maintence of the interface, and vipuser is responsible for dealing the request of bots and site maintence affairs . Thanks very much!

Thank you!--Vipuser 14:05, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

  On hold: Now not sysop in ganwikipedia--Shizhao 14:13, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
What should we do now?--Vipuser 17:08, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Shizhao, Note that 1. These two guys are experienced wikipedians. They are supported by the gan: community and they will use these tools well. 2. The English wikiversity started with temporary a sysop and a temporary bureaucrat; it worked well and nobody has complained. 3. These guys have valid reasons to request bureaucratships. 4. Requests for bureaucratship are local affairs. The only question should be whether there is an active community supporting each request. The community should decide for themselves whether it is acceptable for somebody to become a bureaucrat straightaway. Hillgentleman 17:25, 10 June 2008 (UTC) - note: by "strightaway" I mean "without having been a sysop locally". Hillgentleman 17:40, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Not really. Sometimes stewards don't give bureaucratship on small projects — VasilievV 2 17:27, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Hello, please add these bot requests to Steward requests/Bot status, thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 07:13, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

so add them all--Nick1915 - all you want 09:19, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
Yep, You can add also bots of other botowners, temporary bureaucrat status is only given in very very special cases (because making it temporary is rather senseless, since one could then change the rights of other users), rather not, also it is mostly done like: first sysop then crat, in this case please add the bots to be flagged to the request page on meta. But I can see there is no sysop in [1]. Please if You need sysop status, just say so, I would be happy to give You that flag, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 10:40, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Thank you. 20:41, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

  Not done, sorry, if the community is too small to vote, please apply for temporary status. Please make a local request link anyway to grant readers and maybe watching people to give their opinion. Many thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 20:43, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
Comment: please remember that Wikipedia is not a bureaucracy -- what would be different if all people who voted on would have created accounts on Wikisource just to vote for the guy? I think you should consider his application on its own merits instead of declaring mistrial on technical grounds -- in my opinion his course of action shows that he's an upstanding user who has chosen to withstand the scrutiny of his peers instead of applying for this position based on the known unresponsiveness of the non-existing community at ro.Wikisource. --Gutza 22:59, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
Please read my rationale below, this is not about bureaucracy, this is about respecting a local community, even if it is very small. There is no local request on ro.wikisource, but there are users in the recent changes even a sysop. This request here is closed, thanks for Your understanding, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 23:05, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it is there, but closed ;( still
Thanks for the local request, lets give it some time to see if someone responds, I'd say a 3 months period to start would be fine then, what do You think? --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:50, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
the last activity is marked on had been put for closure but i motivated the position of this wiki. it's a long term project; there is a lack of contribution but things are going ahead.i'm looking for contributions and documents, medias freely available, distribuable or donations for the library :-); i do think things will go better when all needed translations will be done (availability for wiktionary, wikiquote and wikversity); closing them is a heavy damage for our emerging language.
i'm yet an administrator (for 2 periods yet :-), 6 months ago ) Masterches 12:53, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
@ht.s: See Proposals for closing projects/Closure of Haitian Creole Wikisource and bugzilla:13967, please consider to contribute to oldwikisource until there is some activity to revive that project. The articles are then not lost, but can be imported easily.
@ht.w: I see, You have temp-status on still, I would suggest 6 months this time then. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 13:25, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
Ok, allrights; i continue my contributions, notably to translations; that's not easy, there's so much to say and to do and so little contributions for a community larger than 15 millions haitian creole spoken persons (Haiti-Canada-USA ..etc) ,that's a pity; but things are going ahead. thank you Masterches 13:34, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
  Done (ht.wikipedia) expires: 12-12-2008, I have removed Your temporary rights on ht.wikisource, since it makes no sense, it is not possible to edit there right now, please consider to contribute to old wikisource until the project can be revived, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 09:21, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Ah, good. I can extend your sysopship by another 6 months, if you like. Always welcome anonymous users and offer them to create an account for easier communication or the like. That often helps to get people to creating an account. --Thogo (talk) 19:25, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
i've adopted some strategies to motivate anonymous contributors (discussion panel,opening other articles by new links,intra-wiki links or else, categories, correcting their own contributions with better format, or check some users from forums of the haitian community; after an announcement, there is an increase of anonymous contributions, we discuss hard but always a lack of permanent contribution; i contact researchers, teachers, professors, students, engineers, physicians, natives...they all say the project is interesting but most of them require something finished, completed to go further and others require financial grounds;it's a bit difficult but i'll try to continue my efforts, gradually, incessantly, steadily (particularly the translation task); they are some sections that could bring more contributions and i'll promote them (religion, medicine, history). Other projects that could bring more contributions, according to what i see on the web concerning haitian creole, are the wiktionary and wikiquote projects; i've started them on incubator but it lacks the translation of all mediawiki messages (most-used yet done); i hope those projects will open soon also. Cordially,Masterches 20:05, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
Cool! A big problem is probably that only few people in Haiti have internet access... :( Ok, so I guess you can live with another 6 months term. Extended until June, 12th, 2009. --Thogo (talk) 20:11, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

Vpovilaitis@lt wiktionary

I request bureaucrat access.

Thank you. Vpovilaitis apt. 13:51, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

The request has been open a while, and there are no opposes. No current crats to grant the request so it's a steward matter. However there are only a very few supports, and only 2 admins: [2] ... is this community big enough to need a 'crat? I held off promoting because of that. Thoughts? ++Lar: t/c 15:29, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
I would say grant the status, even though the voting seems to go on very long. Two sysops supported him and the other votes are also not 0 edit accounts. The first vote I did not count, I believe he voted for himself :o) But that still makes 5 positive votes. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 20:38, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

I don't agree with this this request nor this removal, there's a huge precipitancy and mistake here. MachoCarioca 18:00, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Traditionally, users who have requested removal of their own rights in uncontroversial circumstances are allowed to re-request them if they change their minds. In the event that Spoladore decides otherwise, the policies of Portuguese Wikipedia should be considered and, if allowable by the community, reversal may be performed by a local bureaucrat. Spoladore requested the removal[9] and is the same user as on Portuguese Wikipedia (CA), so this should not be a case of mistaken identity. You may be able to convince Spoladore otherwise, however there is little decision-making when a user requests their rights removed. Sorry. ~Kylu (u|t) 01:51, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Thank you. Kjetil r 12:17, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

Not sure if nine votes are sufficient for a deadmin. This is way belove our current limit for adminship. I think this needs considerations on the project as there are implicitt changes of the present policy in the discussion about this deadmin process. Jeblad 12:54, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
I'm inclined to   Not done this. Reach a consensus on-wiki and only then come here. Thanks. --FiliP × 19:58, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
The internal discussion was about two things at the same time, if the admin should loose his sysop status due to inactivity and if such actions could be undone without further notice. As I read the discussion about this I am fairly sure we have consensus for removing the actual users right due to inactivity, but there are no consensus for changing our policy for desysop in general (Ie. there are no such policy). The user is given due notice on email, and there are no response or activity from the user. As I see it the admin status can be removed without further notice for Stianh@noiki as an administrative measure. [12] [13] Jeblad 22:01, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

I request removal of access.

Thank you. --SB_Johnny|talk|books 13:47, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

To request the removal of another user's status, you must gain consensus on the local wiki first. OR if you have different policies, could you point to that? --Dbl2010 14:16, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
I realize the links may look strange, but we don't use the typical RFA method on that project. I am Terra's "mentor", meaning I am responsible for his actions for the duration of his probationary custodianship. I am not at this point still willing to be responsible for him, so request removal until he either finds another mentor or passes an "RFC" (a.k.a. "RFA" on most other wikis). For confirmation of probationary status, see en:v:Wikiversity:Support staff
I am a b'crat, and can reinstate the tools if need be. --SB_Johnny|talk|books 14:22, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
Oh, no very good policy link (we have very few policies on WV), but the original mentorship discussion should explain it: . If it were an RFA, it would have failed. --SB_Johnny|talk|books 14:41, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
As far as I understand there is 4 weeks of probational custodianship under a mentors supervising. After that, evaluation starts. And if mentor does not agree on his custodianship, he should find another mentor in 48 hours. If he cannot, then is user right will be revoked. That is what I understood from the Wikiversity policy pages. Am I right? If yes, we need to give him time and I guess he needs to know that you are not his mentor anymore. Sorry for so much bureaucracy but we should play along with the policies. Of course I may not see the whole picture, if so please direct me to the right policy pages so we can justify our move. Thanks. --Dbl2010 15:03, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
Well, it's actually been 3 months :). I had asked around for an alternate mentor after the 4 weeks, but no-one stepped up so I let him extend for another 2 months... bad idea in retrospect, but it's hard to know what to do when policies are lacking. --SB_Johnny|talk|books 15:55, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
OK. Lets do it this way: Announce on a suitable page that you are not supporting him anymore, so others get informed (If you haven't done yet). Also tell him about this on his talk page and also mention him to find another mentor in 48 hours if he wants to continue. And we see what happenes 48 hours later and we go from there. What do you think? --Dbl2010 16:04, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
Ah, good thinkin :). I've more or less said as much on both his talk page and on the first link provided, so no problem waiting a couple days. --SB_Johnny|talk|books 16:16, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
I've had a little involvement with the Terra case and am (just a) sysop at Wikiversity with very little knowledge of policy. Thinking about the people perspective here, rather than policy, I don't see the harm in putting it to the vote on WV. --McCormack 15:05, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
Please don't get me wrong. I am not requesting a voting. I am just requesting some sort of justification. It can be vote, it can be a policy, it can be consensus, etc. Something that your local wiki policies accepts and agrees. Removing other users user right is a delicate thing. --Dbl2010 15:36, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

I asked, and am waiting for an answer, but he avoids to give it, wihout making a clear position. And furthermore, he doesn't give attention to my suggestions regarding different needed updates of the .css, which if they were listened, or given more attention (prove me they are not needed), I wouldn't have asked for adminship. How long should I wait for his answer, before asking here again? diego_pmc 12:54, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Huji@fa Wiktionary

I request temporary sysop access.

I'm not sure if my reasoning is satisfactory here. When I was talking with User:Aphaia today about adding Wikimania 2008 site notices to the Persian ("fa") wikis, I noticed that Persian Wiktionary doesn't have a "community" as I find it, but is edited by a few anonymous and registered users every day. There may be a chance that adding the sitenotices to such low activity wikis can be helpful. Local administrators, however, are not available to handle this. That is why I'm requesting for temporary adminship on this wiki, so I can handle the site notices stuff.

Hi, I had been granted a temporary Administration access for gu-wiki for a month, which is expired today. May I ask you to review the edits/activities on gu-wiki by me and grant me more access [19]? As you can see, though it is a small project, but it is growing fast. When I started contributing a couple of months ago, it had hardly 400 odd pages, the number has now grown to 475. We need a lot of efforts for the Gujarati portal, but unfortunately the existing Administrators don't seem to be available as much as required. I would appreciate if my access is reviewed and renewed.
