Administrator access


(Moved from Meta request for admin) Avi 18:01, 19 March 2010 (UTC)[]

I see you are an admin and crat there, presumably temporary. Has there been a discussion onwiki regarding permanency? -- Avi 18:06, 19 March 2010 (UTC)[]
Rights were granted locally on 2005.
Please state exactly what are you requesting, otherwise we can not help you. Thanks. — Dferg (talk) 18:02, 22 March 2010
Yes, I only get temporary adminship untill now. I want permanency. So far, there have not been not many users, but we can start a discussion about permanency, if needed. But it will be as formel as for last temporary adminship demand. --Lucyin 18:45, 22 March 2010 (UTC)[]
If the project is too small to have a formalized process, that is fine, but you have to have an on-wiki discussion for a respectable length of time (I'd personally say at least 5-7 days) and then if there is a consensus to make it permanent, link that discussion above (in the discussion = section of the tag) and we can get to work. -- Avi 18:47, 22 March 2010 (UTC)[]
So, this is not a request for wa wikipedia but for wa wiktionary as far as I can see. The heading and the template pointed to wikipedia. Is this right? That's why I got confused :) — Dferg (talk) 18:50, 22 March 2010 (UTC)[]
Lucyin, Here is my recommendation: Please create a RfA page, start an election and announce it in site notice as well. Run the poll at least for a week. Lets see how that goes. --Jyothis 18:49, 22 March 2010 (UTC)[]
Sorry for confusion Wikipedia/Wiktionary ! Indeed, I am already permanent administrator on Walloon Wikipedia (granted to me by Mr Sarachaga, the creator of Walloon interface there). I need it for Walloon Wiktionary, which I started nearly alone, after advice of other Wikipedians. Unfortunatelly, I can not create poll pages. Can you do that for me ? Then, we will run the poll with other users. --Lucyin 19:00, 22 March 2010 (UTC)[]
It's easy. Just start a new topic on you community discussion page (wikt:wa:Wiccionaire:Nosse cåbaret) saying that you want to become an administrator and leave it open for a week to gauge community consensus. Thanks, — Dferg (talk) 14:28, 23 March 2010 (UTC)[]

Please provide a link and content that you want to create. Also, Please unify your account too. If it is ok to have a temp adminship, that can be considered too. --Jyothis 12:37, 23 March 2010 (UTC)[]

  Progress report? Hello, how is this going here? Please inform us. Very best, — Dferg (talk) 22:23, 30 March 2010 (UTC)[]

I ask to other people involved in Walloon lexicography (in Wiki or not) :

It seems to be OK

Lucyin 12:33, 6 April 2010 (UTC)[]

Granted. - Andre Engels 01:13, 8 April 2010 (UTC)[]



I request for an administrator - permanency for my.wiktionary as there is no one doing it. I speak, read and write that language very well and it is my mother tongue.

Thank you. --စေတနာ 20:04, 20 March 2010 (UTC)[]

Without a community vote I think that the only thing possible would be temporary admin status. I see that there is an open vote to close this wiki, but a majority favor keeping. Due to your activity I'm inclined to close that vote as a keep but will wait to see what other stewards say. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 17:47, 21 March 2010 (UTC)[]
There should be a local vote, or we can only consider temporary approval.--Jusjih 00:51, 22 March 2010 (UTC)[]

How do one can go about getting an admin rights through a local vote ? Meantime, temporary is good enough to prevent vandalism as present situation is totally vulnerable for that. --စေတနာ 02:07, 22 March 2010 (UTC)[]

if the Current requests page wikt:my:လက်​ရှိ​လုပ်​ငန်း​များ​ is active, you should make an announcement that you are seeking temporary adminship there. That should also be the place to start discussing permanent adminship, unless there is a better centralized discussion area. -- Avi 18:27, 22 March 2010 (UTC)[]

Can you pass this to present admin how did he/she got a ZERO vote to admin this my.wik with ZERO knowledge of the contents in there ? --စေတနာ 21:55, 23 March 2010 (UTC)[]

  Done for 3 months to expire on 2010-07-11 as there is no present admin there.--Jusjih 02:12, 11 April 2010 (UTC)[]


Thanks.) --Reality006 16:44, 7 April 2010 (UTC)[]

Will wait for a week to pass on local vote. On hold until Apri 9 2010. --Jyothis 17:19, 7 April 2010 (UTC)[]

  Done--Shanel 21:02, 10 April 2010 (UTC)[]


Local community is small, so I think 3 votes are enough. Beaukarpo is the top contributor and currently the only one ethnic Tibetan who is active in this project. Kind regards. Wisconsus 09:56, 14 April 2010 (UTC) 4 votes already. --Wisconsus 09:23, 15 April 2010 (UTC)[]

We can grant only temporary rights, since the community is too small. --FiliP ██ 10:37, 15 April 2010 (UTC)[]

If there were 5 votes, would it be enough for indefinite sysop rights? --Wisconsus 18:57, 15 April 2010 (UTC)[]

Usually not, since We have global sysops to fill that shoe mostly. We usually approve temp sysops for the active members of a small community to do project/lang specific work, provided there are no objections for about a week's vote on RfA page or Main talk page of the project. When a project has considerable size of users and activity, community can elect a permanent sysop on their own. Hope this helps --Jyothis 19:32, 15 April 2010 (UTC)[]

  Done Three month temporary adminship granted; set to expire July 16, 2010. -- Avi 18:39, 16 April 2010 (UTC)[]


Hello. On March 18th, 2010 I've created a request for adminship at the Bashkir Wikipedia using this page. The vote has finished on April 1st, 2010. But due to inactivity of the only bureaucrat of the Bashkir Wikipedia I'm unable to get admin status locally. Thus, I request it here. There are very few active contributors on this wiki, so I got only 2 votes. Hope that's enough. Best wishes, 231013-a 12:20, 14 April 2010 (UTC)[]

Done. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 00:29, 15 April 2010 (UTC)[]
Thank you --231013-a 03:59, 15 April 2010 (UTC)[]
Sorry for disturbing once again but as an admin I'm able to join #wikipedia-admin IRC channel (as it's written here). I've just tried to join it but it says I must have an invitation from an actual member. Could anyone of this channel members give me such an invitation? As soon as it is done please tell me about that at my Bashkir Wikipedia talk page as I'm unable to look through this page very often. Thanks in advance, --231013-a 09:39, 16 April 2010 (UTC)[]

As Stewards-l Digest, Vol 84, Issue 1 on 2010-04-09 (content closed to the public) has concern of permanent flag with just 2 local votes, I am granting 3 months to expire on 2010-07-20 and notifying the user.--Jusjih 01:10, 20 April 2010 (UTC)[]


Local community is small, so I think 3 votes are enough. Aturantekin is the top contributor and currently only one of two ethnic Uyghurs who are active in this project. If you believe the community there is not large enough, then you can grant him temporary three-month sysop rights for the meantime. Kind regards. --Jose77 06:26, 18 April 2010 (UTC)[]

Done. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 01:30, 19 April 2010 (UTC)[]

Bureaucrat access


Thanks--Reality006 15:06, 25 March 2010 (UTC)[]

Was there another candidate? There has been recent talk about requiring that any wiki needs a minimum of two bcrats. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 23:49, 27 March 2010 (UTC)[]

Unfortunately, no other candidates for the bureaucrats. Moreover, the user already bureaucrats Wikipedia. In addition, the project now that it did not remain active sysop.-- 09:52, 28 March 2010 (UTC)[]

  • Hello,
    Since this wiki is so small, there is no active sysop, and no bcrat at all. The voting was initially aimed for sysop authorization, but some of the users agreed to change the voting to sysop+bcrat. If bcrat permission is not possible because there is no other bcrat candidates, I would like to have the sysop rights for the moment, so that I can start cleaning up immediately. Currently there are some serious copyvio's to deal with. İyivikiler... [ho? ni!] 18:50, 28 March 2010 (UTC)[],,

No we can not. If the community wish all admins to have the right (not recommended), hold a local discussion and file a request on Bugzilla. If you wish to have local import-rights, request the permission locally (like you would do if you asked for admin-access(?)), and come here and we can grant you the permission. Laaknor 09:17, 28 December 2009 (UTC)[]
I have already put a request on bugzilla (see bug #21762), but there, they says that there is no problem for importing (the person who replied me is a staff member on wikimedia) whereas I have a problem when trying to import... I understand according to this that importation function is enabled for staff, but not for administrators ? If it's really that, I will write a request on and if nobody replies to this, can I get rights after 10 days or I must absolutely have a positive reaction before having importer rights over there and on mg.wikt ? --Jagwar 交談 homewiki 18:28, 31 December 2009 (UTC)[]
