Administrator access

Thank you! --Marbot 12:08, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
There's just one vote. We can't give out permanent sysop with just one supporting vote. It'd propose to give him temp sysop for three months. Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 12:26, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
  Support. Alex Pereira falaê 17:40, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
I think Alex's judgement and decision was and is correct. The community, which is indeed not very large at pdcwiki, had three weeks to comment or oppose (announcement was made on main page). Sadly the only vote was from me, the current admin. However a re-election is compulsory on this wiki. Please have a look at the preconditions for adminstatus, too. Thus I do not see any problems. Taking also into consideration that stewards have the power to stop misuse right away at any time it occurs, makes the risk of misuse even smaller. Apart from that, I think that it is better to have two admins on this wiki than just one. A compromise I see at this stage is that he gets temporary adminstatus for three months which is then automatically transferred into permanent adminstatus thereafter. Best regards --Marbot 18:05, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
No, sorry, I disagree. Sysops should be elected by more than one user. There are dozens of other wikis with just one sysop. Xqt could start another regular election in three month. Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 18:13, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
I agree with DerHexer. After three months, make a new election. Best regards. Alex Pereira falaê 18:17, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
I respect your decision. --Marbot 18:30, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello I would like temporary sysop access at this wikipedia the wiki has just been created and there is much maintenance work to do. Thank you! ZaDiak 22:44, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Hello, there is no local request/announcement for this, nor do You have any contributions to this wiki, please feel free to contribute to the project first, most things can be maintained without sysop buttons, and to help translating the interface at betawiki:, thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 22:47, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
I have contributions but the pages haven't yet been imported and I have helped translating the interface but this data isn't yet available because nothing has been imported. Ner mind I will wait until the import is done. Thank you.--ZaDiak 23:08, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Hello, thanks, still, there should be a local announcement/request, if there will be no objections we can grant You temporary adminship then until the project is big enough for a voting, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 23:10, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Comment: we clearly need a better manual for how to get started with a fresh, clean wiki and a half-dozen editors. It makes sense for any such group to start out with temp sysops, for instance. -- sj | help translate |+ 01:11, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
It's different now, though, because we work with the Wikimedia Incubator. Technically they can hold their own elections on the test project before their "real" project gets created (I've seen this done in the past). I think some sort of Manual exists on Incubator. If not, that's probably where it should be created instead of here. :-) Cbrown1023 talk 02:44, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
The incubator & betawiki are great for interface translation and initial work. Small wikis don't tend to get underway with temp sysops, all the same. We should have a "small wikis guidebook" that shows people how to do the typically overlooked things : renaming special pages; translating core pages that are linked in headers/footers; bootstrapping by creating administrivia pages (community portal/cafe, bot policy, administrators page, deletion policy & templates); when to ask for countervandalism or steward help. And that itself should be translated into at least the core languages. If there is such a thing it needs better publicity... -- sj | help translate |+ 03:00, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
If that is so, we would need a link to that voting and need to know if it was a voting for rights on incubator or for the upcoming project. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:11, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
I have made a request I will wait for a while and if there aren't any objections I will notify you. Could you please tell me how long should I wait?--ZaDiak 12:51, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
We usually let it rest for a week at least. --Thogo (talk) 13:24, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
Hello Thogo, I think this is an unusual request, I would say: granting the rigths now, but temporary for a week and if there are no objections locally, prolonging the rights to the usual three months after that one week (without any burocracy, just leaving this request open as a reminder). So he can already start to import the pages from incubator, what do You think, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 13:33, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
Ah, ok. I just saw that it was created only yesterday. --Thogo (talk) 13:37, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
I am for with birdy's comment , we can grant him temp for a week then we can prolong it --Mardetanha talk 13:49, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
  granted for one week, as proposed, if no objections locally after that one week the status will expire: 06-06-2009, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 14:15, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
It's been roughly one week since you've granted this user temp sysop status on the pnt.wikipedia, and I've seen his work there. His work on the pnt.wikipedia is very helpful towards it, and I could see this user being a great sysop. Just thought that I would add my 2 cents here. Thanks, Razorflame 14:24, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
Hello Razorflame, please note this here is no voting, there is a local request where users can submit their thoughts, this request will be closed tomorrow, because the local announcements usually stay open one week and afterwards the status is granted but due to this unusual situation (newly opened wiki) we granted the status before that and wait that week if there will be any opposes, details of this solutions can be read above, thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 14:28, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
Everything looks fine, closing this, :  Done, expires: 06-06-2009, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 08:38, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Permanent Sysop access, Discussed and community consensus gained.
Sorry for adding these notes below
But, I don't know why it expired in april 09, while i asked you permanent sysop, And why everytime i must come here to request, it costs my time, We have no problems with each other, The only problem that we have is with you for your transl*tewiki, it is about 3 years that i am requesting for changing the local name of mzn.wp, still not resolved. --Ali 02:42, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello Ali, I don't see a problem here, last time we had agreed to review his status in april and make it permanent then due to the few votings. @translatewiki: I don't see a problem there either, I imported the messages from manually for You and the name change of the interwiki code of mzn bugzilla:11457 is not a translatewiki-issue but something the developers should do, please consider bugging them at #wikimedia-techconnect, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 14:38, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Sysopship Request प्रचालक नामनिर्देशन

नमस्कार:। मम नाम: माहितगार।इदम् मम प्रचालक नामनिर्देशन विनंती अस्ति। Myself(sa:User:Mahitgar) wants to become sysop here at Sanskrit lanuage wikipedia.I am actively involved contribiting to support pagesMy Contributions at sa wikipedia.I did put a request for sysopship at local page and is supported by 3 votes in fovour and none against.Previously I used temporary sysopship productively for same sa wikipedia] and I do have experience in sysop support to Marathi and Hindi Languge wiktionaries,I have actively and substantialy contributed in development of main pages of sa wikipedia and did begin localising sa interface too; also support mr:wiktionary,mr:wikibooks,mr:wikiquote,mr main page at commons and mr main page at mediawiki also considerably contributed to translation to en to mr at beta wiki.

I would like to continue providing first level support to further development and adding utiity value to users at Sanskrit language wikipedia's main page, wants to help evolve a policy consensus about further development of sa wikipedia, and wants to support first level help pages structure which is stll missing at sa wikipedia.Kindly approve my request for sysopship at meta itself since burocrat of sa wikipedia is inactive since ages and previously for sa wikipedia temporary access I tried to cntact him every possible way but had no avail.since it is language of importance but very old classical language requires special linguistic skill level hence this is a direct sysopship request

Thank you! Mahitgar 13:37, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

  On hold. The only bureaucrat there is inactive there for long time. I am asking and holding on this request.--Jusjih 19:13, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
Hello Jusjih, the user had temporary sysopship and it just expired, since there are no votes nor it is plausible the bureaucrat will show up (inactive since july 2006 and iirc he did not respond the last time either), I would suggest to prolong his sysopship, 3 months and Mahitgar, next time You prolong it just leave a short note You are prolonging, this can be handled without much worries for You, a steward just looks at the contributions and logs, also better leave a note shortly before the status expires, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 20:47, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello I am requesting admin rights for the ie.wikipedia. The current two administrators of the Interlingue Wikipedia are both inactive. None of them answered my request. Since the community is not very active there were no discussions and votes on my request. See and Please help because some changes of the project can only done with admin rights. Feel free to ask me for further information. Thank you! Valodnieks 10:46, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello, since the community is not active and there are no votes we can only grant You temporary sysopship (e.g. 3 months), note that it is technically the same and can be prolonged easily, also please note that interface translations should never be done locally but only on translatewiki: (just saying that in case You are planning to translate the interface), are You ok with that, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 10:00, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello. Thank you for the quick reaction. I have no problem with that because this means an important progress for the Interlingue Wikipedia. I will try to activate the community of Interlingue speakers. Do you need any identification or something like that from my side? Valodnieks 15:15, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello Valodnieks, perfect, thanks, no I don't need an identification since the accountname "Valodnieks" was the one who asked for sysop rights locally and was the account which was sysoped. Note that You could unify Your accounts via ie:special:mergeaccount, see SUL.
  Done, expires: 24-07-2009 please remember to translate the interface at betawiki: only and to upload images preferably to commons:, please come back a few days before the status expires to prolong it or hold a local voting if the community grows, thanks, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 16:37, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Status:    Done

Please, remove my following userrights:

  • @plwiki:sysop, bureaucrat, checkuser
  • @plwikibooks: sysop
  • @Meta: sysop, steward
  • OTRS access

I would like to thank the Wikimedia community for the last 28 months, which were quite strenuous on me. Family obligations, the responsibility for my growing son as well as a career change, where I now work on a much less flex-time schedule have necessitated this decision. Thus, being able to devote only scraps of time for Wikimedia and not wanting to be "dead sentry on duty" I kindly ask one of the available stewards to remove the abovementioned rights, together with a request to the checkuser, OTRS and steward mailing lists to remove my mailing address from those.

Thank you.

Temporary permissions (rejected and expired requests only)


I request the extension of my period as a sysop by six months from January 1, 2009. During the past three months some progress has been made on this wiki. However with the expiry of my access there would still be no active local admin left, since the other admins' last edit was still on June 11, 2008 (only 43 edits this year so far). To my experience somebody with admin access should be active on this wiki. Vandalism is rare but still occurs undetected. In addition I have not completed to streamline appearance and naming of articles. An other field to be taken care of is the copyright status of files which were uploaded. Thank you for your consideration. --Marbot 23:02, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Seems reasonable to me, barring any objections... ++Lar: t/c 23:07, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
Only think I would like to ask You, please can You make a local announcement of You asking for sysop status, just in case anyone would like to object. Since You did not make a local announcement (note it does not have to be a voting, just leave it in the village pump), I would like to ask You for it this time before we prolong the status. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 05:30, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
Hi, no problem at all. I have made an announcement in the village pump (Gmeeschafts-Portal). In addition I have made an announcement on the main page. I have set the time for objections for a fortnight from today. I think, this should be ok. Best regards --Marbot 21:52, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
Hello Marbot, that is just great, thanks, we can leave this here open until then if this is ok with You, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 22:21, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
Hi birdy, I do not think that this is a matter of choice. :-) Just have a look at the comments on December 30. If there is a serious problem *fear* I will inform you right away. Best regards --Marbot 22:24, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
@ Spacebirdy: Do you mean a voting on pdc: for temp sysopship or the permanent one? I'd recommend Marbot to do the last one. Regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 22:26, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
I think permanent adminship should only be granted after a vote. However, we should wait at least a year until a vote to give Dischdeldritsch time to return (his last action was an June 11, 2008). Best regards --Marbot 22:35, 16 December 2008 (UTC) This is the reason why I asked for 6 and not 3 months.
Yes, I agree, permanent should it be only after a voting, I asked only for an announcement, so other local users could object if they wish to, 2 weeks is maybe a bit long but I don't see a problem here because Marbot has adminstatus now already until then anyway.

His status had been extended to April 2009 Steward_requests/Permissions/Approved_temporary#mzn.wikipedia (permalink), I'd suggest to look into this then, he has only 3 votes in favor and looking at the rc the wiki seems to have a small community. I would be open to extend his sysopship in April 2009 to a permanent status. Other opinions are welcomed, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 21:05, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
He has been as admin for about one year, I thought Stewards are confident about him --Ali 07:28, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
Hello, a temporary status is not given, because we are not confident, but because of too small or not existant local votings as some sort of quality control which is normally achived through votings by the local community. The reason is, that in growing communities there are often disputes and envy between sysops who had to go through a full election process and sysops basically appointed by stewards.
He had been granted (an unusally long) period of temporary sysopship, and I would suggest to review it when this period ends, what do You think? Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 11:49, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

It should be wikipedia, according to my talk page on - all you want 12:01, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
Ok, thanks Nick. Well, 9 months imho definitly is too long. This is just a quality control, since there is none from the local community (there is no local voting, where people judge someones aibilities) and prolonging is fairly easy, You just drop us a line here. I suggest another 3 months for now and lets wait some days if someone wants to object to Your notifications on You wrote yesterday, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:09, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
Uhm, the RC page doesn't seem to be full of user edits (just some bot and ripepette, an user in agreement; -see my talk-). Elcaracol was temp admin 2 times, 3 months x2. I think it's a good idea to "extend" his adminship for a (little) while. Anyway, I suggest you to wait some day for reaching a potential consensus as well--Nick1915 - all you want 12:36, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
According to [7] he was tempadmin only once and besides the bots there are some other users in the rc there and they should get a chance to object if they want to, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:42, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

There is a deletion backlog of 22 pages tagged as far back as August 2008, and the latest sysop to be active made their last edit on March 23. Could I have sysop there to clean up the backlog? Thank you! Techman224Talk 03:43, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello, do You speak that language, there are pages that are not clear cut cases for speedy deletion. Also there are active users there so without local request this is a nogo. Leaving the local sysop a message would be much more helpful because in often this drags the local users to their wiki again and they start editing again (besides 23 March is not long ago and not really inactivity).

Thank you! Hercule 08:09, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, you created your account on March 19 and have made exactly 3 edits to the wiki. I don't think that's experience enough to support the wiki with sysop tools. I'd welcome input from other stewards here.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 17:37, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
I agree with Mike. Alex Pereira falaê 17:45, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
My request is just to make simple cleanup, such as renaming the Main page to it's MediaWiki name, or deleting duplicates images. There is no communauty on this wiki, I don't think I'll make more edits there as I don't speak the language...
I am requesting the admin tools for short time, just to give a ponctual help. If you think I'm not enought trustable just forget this request.
--Hercule 20:10, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Hello Hercule, I think they wanted to point out that it's not a question of trust, but of necessity, but IMHO a temporary period up to three months (or two weeks as You asked for) is ok if You wish to watch after this wiki, You made a local announcement of this and if You agree not to translate the interface locally I see no problem (also please do not delete the redirect from "Main Page" after You moved the main page, because it could break links from outside).

I noticed while doing some cvn stuff that there was a cut and paste merge on nahwiki, which I felt probably ought to be fixed. I could do it myself, or if any steward wants to do it, here are the links:

There are editing (but not "logging") administrators on nahwiki, and I am unsure whether if I should ask them first if they want to do it, because it is such an uncontroversial matter. If you feel that I should probably ask them first, then of course I would do so.

Cheers, NuclearWarfare 23:22, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

The best thing to do would be to explain the problem to them and find out what they'd like to do about it. If the community there has no objections, let us know, otherwise it's a problem that the local administrators will have to deal with. You may wish to mention that you only want to fix this one problem, and that your rights will be removed after it's dealt with. Good luck. Kylu 02:43, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Kashmiri Wikipedia has an administrator who has been inactive since January 2005. I'd like to request for a temporary 3 month sysop priviledge there because the Main Page has been locked from all editing and needs to be improved in order to attract new Kashmiri users. (I also intend to translate the interface into Kashmiri, through the help of competent native speakers, in Betawiki.) With the permission, I will be able to rearrange kashmiri wiki to make it more user friendly and enable users of both scripts to contribute there in harmony. As there are no frequent kashmiri users (if any) in it is a major problem to ask for their votes.

Thankyou very much. --Jose77 03:17, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
