I request permanent administratorship. I was administrator for 6 years over the pre-wmf version of this wiki, and my current temporary administratorship ends on March 24. I am also permanent admin on en:WV. I am by far the most active administrator and user on pt:, have always used the shiny buttons responsibly, and it's fairly obvious that I won't be abandoning the project or turning renegade. Thanks.

Is this the relevant local discussion? --MF-W 13:45, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
Yes.--Vadgt (talk) 17:45, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
There are only 3 opposing votes on that page. That's the opposite of a consensus for giving you adminship. --MF-W 18:02, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
Now I have the right to admin? --Vadgt (talk) 18:05, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
No, you can only become an admin if other users support you. You got 3 oppose votes so far, as visible here. But requests for adminship normally last at least 1 week. So, since your request was created on 14 March, it can still be kept open until 21 March, maybe you'll still get supports. --MF-W 18:25, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

Дагиров Умар

(I request to a flag of Bureaucrat. Here is the voting page. ce:Википедийа:Requests for bureaucratship Not all of users are active in Chechen Wikipedia, and if you'll deside to not giving me Bureaucrat access, I requesting the Administrator flag to deleting vandalism and spam. Also, I would like to draw your attention to curent situation with Bureaucrats in Chechen Wikipedia. None of them are active now and also I do not understand how many of them even became Bureaucrats: Nohcho - not active since 11 May, 2010 (also have Bot flag!) Girdi - not active since 28 November, 2010 Kade - not active since 12 February, 2011 Mega programmer - not active since 13 June, 2012 (3 edits since June 2011)

What should we do to removing Bureaucrat flags from those users? And can you remove flags without community decision?) Дагиров Умар (talk) 13:43, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

  Comment A discussion in the community that addresses the removal of bureaucrats, AND notifying the relevant people of the discussion. I would expect that such a discussion should be open for a month to get sufficient airing. — billinghurst sDrewth 15:02, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
  Comment addendum. I have removed the bot flag for the bureaucrat. That would seem to be inappropriate as a permanent addition for a crat.
Сейчас для меня главное - приступить к работе, в чевики очень много мусора накопилось, я надеюсь, стюарды не заставят долго ждать с подведением итога. С/ У -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 19:32, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
И как ты собираешься удалять мусор? Или ты хочешь писать статьи со своей грамматикой? Скажи открыто, какие именно цели ты преследуешь?! Что тебе мешает будучи участником вносить изменения?! Что тобой движет, любовь к власти или энтузиазм?Qonax (talk) 02:04, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
I am significantly concerned about this request, as there were complaints lodged at the English Wikipedia about users there being canvassed to support this request. Please see [8]. --Rschen7754 22:12, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
On Chechen wikipedia and there are no such rules, you worry for nothing I do not have bad ends I want to improve Wikipedia invite new members if you can leave the project against. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 06:25, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
I agree with Umar! Rschen7754 - what do you want - to сomply the strange rules in the project without active admins, with admins with 9 edits in 2008 year or just going away in your own project and do not bother to users who really want to help the project? What are you talking about? What are you done for the Chechen Wikipedia to have a right to stopping of its development? Uh? Umar wrote to me also and what? Without that I would not even know about voting. Enough!--Soul Train (talk) 06:40, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
Canvassing causes an unfair election, and the stewards have the right to deny this request because of that. --Rschen7754 06:51, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
Stewards have right to not stop the development of Chechen Wikipedia and I think this is the main thing, not "Canvassing" as your opinion. Opinion of the user of Largest Developed section of Wikipedia, not user of section where when you just write "Russian Federation", you take the threatening letter from admin Sasan700. You know nothing about Chechen Wikipedia, how can you morally write here bad things about Umar who wants to resurrect Chechen Wikipedia from ruins. Disrespect to you.--Soul Train (talk) 08:10, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
Last year, I also applied for half of the year continued the vote and not a single no vote for and not against the tip page has been deleted. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 07:00, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
(non-steward opinion) ce:Special:Statistics tells me that you have 68 active users; that is not enough for local bureaucrats, in my opinion. Meanwhile, the stewards are available to do bureaucrat tasks on wikis without bureaucrats. I realize that you do not have active administrators, but that can be solved through what is known as temporary adminship. --Rschen7754 07:12, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
The project allready have 5 bureaucrats. As I think, all 5 are mitpuppets of one user who is inactive now. And of course it is another issue. And number of active users is not the main indicator for bureaucrats - the main thing is the number of administrators on 1 bureaucrat. And as Umar said, there is a desire to remove the flags from the inactive bureaucrats, to avoid skew.--Soul Train (talk) 07:40, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
Your opinion is clear you want to close this request? Find an active participant in the project and I'll leave. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 07:17, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
Skilled and experienced an ethnic Chechen, locate, and I ask all. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 07:29, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
The bureaucrats are in the article on Chechnya president write that he was born illegitimate and his parents are dirty pigs and that he is traitor of Chechen people, is this normal? See what our people have done for this Kadyrov Do you like to continue the campaign and that the city was once so. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 08:11, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
Are you worried about my posts did not know what happen in the Chechen Wikipedia without knowing the English language I fail to properly convey to you this. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 10:03, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
Umar, I correct your message.--Soul Train (talk) 08:14, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
Good Soul Train. thanks. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 08:27, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
This is the Permissions withdrawal requests page ce:Википедийа:Permissions withdrawal requests. In accordance with the recommendations of Billinhurst, this voting will continue one month. All users from this page were warned by Soul Train on their talk pages. And, by the way, one of those bureaucrat found my page in social network "Odnoklassniki" and said to me that he can find me and it's gonna happen some bad things with me and with my son. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 11:10, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
Comment: I reiterate my support. The user is the most serious contributor to that wiki. I see no problem with canvassing in this case. This is a small wiki, and this request doesn't have a lot of chances to get any more attention otherwise. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 09:35, 28 February 2013 (UTC) ce.wpo
Comment:I would also support this. (Note that this Meta page is on my watchlist for already about five years). The situation on ce.wp right now is that the existing sysops and bureaucrats (most likey, all of them are are in fact the same person) most of the time inactive, and when they become active, they conduct activity incompatible with the Five Pillars. I do not know about canvassing (in fact, I discussed the situation with Umar and advised him to run an RfB, but did not vote myself), but ther is no "other side" in this story. The other side would not come and vote against him, they would just stop the RfB, delete the page and block him indefinitely if they show up in the project and notice the RfB. Luckily, they did not show up for the long time.--Ymblanter (talk) 12:07, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
  Support this request. I fully agree with Amir & Ymblanter. I think, this is key issue for starting re-development of Chechen wiki. I also support for removing Bureaucrat flags from inactive users. --Kaganer (talk) 17:58, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
Our team has translated about 2,000 articles on the Chechen Wikipedia since 2006[9][10]. Including an interface that was in Russian. And you want us to block? Mega programmer (talk) 02:02, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
Oh, yeah, we want to block you, Sasan700 and others for copypasts like that [11] [12] :-) --Soul Train (talk) 10:40, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
If you know the Chechen language, you did not write such nonsense unnecessarily author gave permission to have the text of his book. Additionally available here[13] Mega programmer (talk) 15:14, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
  • I would like to know about the situation with the permissions of Dagirov Umar and how long we can waiting for? There are many problems in Chechen Wikipedia, not only about threatening from currently low-active administrators (I mean Sasan700), but just with the technical part; for example, it needed to adding the Wikificator in MediaWiki space for remove in articles numbers in the middle of texts - numbers that must be Chechen letter Ӏ (Ӏа) also known as Palochka.--Soul Train (talk) 19:46, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
    I look forward to the end, I many ideas you need to create a lot of things to remove debris. Ask the stewards accepted solution is nothing more to build new states will not know everything. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 19:56, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
  • I am inclined to deny this request on the basis of the major and ridiculous canvassing that has gone on and which makes it impossible for us to determine consensus. I wouldn't mind hearing some opinions on this from my colleagues tho. Snowolf How can I help? 22:40, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
    In any case, with 5 local 'crats, please contact them about this request first, one of them actually edited fairly recently and maybe would reply to an email or talk page message. Snowolf How can I help? 22:44, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
    What are you doing? Do you even understand? Facepalm. You want another voting without "canvassing" (whatta stupid word...)? OK, you'll get it. But this is simply waste of time.--Soul Train (talk) 12:32, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
    By the way, Snowolf, can you show me the discussion in Chechen Wikipedia where, for example, user Shatoidil get his administrator permission? It is very interesting question that bothers me for a long time. Please, show me discussion, according to which its flag is official. And I'll agree with you. But now you are protect the violations. And if this is so, then your permission of steward should be removed. Am I right? Tell me.--Soul Train (talk) 12:51, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
Inactive bureaucrats and administrators are notified. I had to report the vote I take off and do not know they can vote against it if there is a cause and honestly did not know it is wrong. I DO NOT Vandal flag if I confide that I will not let you down. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 23:57, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
  • We are playing by the rules. Notify 1, Notify 2, Notify 3, Notify 4, Notify 5. What else?--Soul Train (talk) 13:48, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
    Propose to close my request for a bureaucrat is a month I will request again in a month and I will not be campaigning all the rules. Unfortunately I do not know that there is such a rule Sorry. Waiting for an answer from the officials? -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 19:46, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
    That seems like a good idea. However, since you are currently not even a sysop, it is probably a better idea to only request sysop rights in your new request. Normally users are sysops for some time first, before they think about becoming a bureaucrat. --MF-W 22:18, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
I agree but to re-vote will take time and the chechns Wikipedia lot of work waiting. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 00:58, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
I am ready to grant you a temp sysop permission for 6 months (taking to account that you already was a temp sysop in the past). In this case you will have sufficient time to file a new request for a permanent adminship. I agree that cewiki does not need bureaucrats as it is currently too small. Ruslik (talk) 06:35, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
I agree to the temporary permission, until the decision on the administrator's voting. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 07:49, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Зачем ему давать временный флаг на 6 месяцев, когда сейчас идёт голосование на статус постоянного администратора, которое завершится уже через 3 дня? Какой в этом смысл? Можно выдать временный флаг на 3 дня. Или если нет такой возможности, выдать временный сейчас, а затем просто не снимать его. Или вы предлагаете опять через полгода голосовать? Человек годами занимается тематикой Чечни, он в Русской Википедии уже свыше 800 статей создал, вы что же, думаете, он вандалить внезапно начнёт?--Soul Train (talk) 08:21, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
"I agree that cewiki does not need bureaucrats as it is currently too small." This is very interesting remark, really :) In such case, the Bureaucrat permission should be removed from the user Sasan700 also.--Soul Train (talk) 08:26, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Today, with no reason, with no warnings at users talk page, Dagirov Umar was permanently blocked by user Dagger who didn't edited the project since 24 December, 2012. After that he reverted editions in the article about en:Flag of Chechnya and placed flag of Chechen Republic of Ichkeria (1991-2004). This article is not about historical flag of Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, but about the present flag of Chechen Republic, and this is another mystification of current administrators. But I'm talking about something else. Dagger blocked permanently user who have 100% support at Request for adminship. With no reason (no, reason is "false information", but he doing it himself), and he done it twice. I want to know the opinion of the stewards about this situation.--Soul Train (talk) 18:43, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Here is a fine example of "objectivity" from user Dagger: "Эта статья о ПРИЗНАНННОЙ тремья государствами Чеченской Республики Ичкерия, о Чечне в составе Рф я ничего незнаю, Чечни больше нет, есть Ичкерия. Dagger 21:09, 28 нажи бутт 2012 (UTC)" - Translation: "This is the article about RECOGNIZED by 3 countries Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, about Chechnya as a part of Russian Federation I know nothing, it is no longer (exist), there's (only) Ichkeria". I don't understand, is he (Dagger) leaving in some kind of dream or computer game?--Soul Train (talk) 18:59, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Если существует государство Ичкерия то где президент и правительство этой страны посмотрите на фотографии в статье о Грозном неужели эта монтаж и где боевики и развалены города эта государство в воздухе. Даже в республиканских газетах пишут о призывах к сепаратизму так называемой в свободной энциклопедии. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 19:36, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Exactly what I mentioned up this thread.--Ymblanter (talk) 20:14, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Note that Dagger him/herself was never elected administrator.--Ymblanter (talk) 20:15, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
  • WHAT WAS THAT?--Soul Train (talk) 06:15, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
    Well, I did not want to vote there since I am just an observer (for many years), not an active contributor, but now I voted for removal of advanced permissions. To stewards: Pls continue monitoring the situation, I would not be surprised if local admins would delete or fully protect the RfA pages, or start blocking at will everyone who voted.--Ymblanter (talk) 07:58, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Candidate has been indefinitely blocked by local user Dagger. Puzzling. --Rschen7754 08:51, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
    This is how they work over there. Dagger was inactive for a long time, and suddenly popped up, created a page, wrote on a number of pages that the candidate will not become an administratot, blocked him indefinitely for vandalism, and disappeared. Another one popped up after a three months years absence and blanked the RfA page. Now we wait what comes next.--Ymblanter (talk) 09:01, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
    Maybe post to the steward noticeboard to start a further discussion on the indefinite block? I get the feeling that it will just get lost here and this page really isn't for extended discussion. --Rschen7754 09:04, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
    Sounds like a good idea, thanks. I will try to move it in the evening.--Ymblanter (talk) 10:00, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

I have advised Dagger of this discussion here. Russavia (talk) 10:22, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Umar, can you comment on [Декъашхон_дийцаре:Дагиров_Умар#.D0.A2.D0.B5.D0.B1.D1.8F_.D0.B2_.D0.B0.D0.B4.D0.BC.D0.B8.D0.BD.D1.8B_.D0.9D.D0.95_.D0.BE.D0.B1.D1.81.D1.83.D0.B6.D0.B4.D0.B0.D0.B5.D1.82.D1.8C.D1.81.D1.8F.21 this]. They are saying that you vandalised the project with pornographic images. And that you are also unable to speak/write in Chechen language? I find the claim on not speaking the language quite specious, given that Umar wrote ce:Юрт-Аух. Russavia (talk) 10:28, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
I can swear on the Koran that I did not do vandalism with a photograph. And on account of knowledge I can say this they just do not say what the main reason is that block that I do not live in the past and do not say about that at the image do momet Chechen nation They also say that does not speak the language of the Chechen. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 10:43, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
And what about this? Sometimes I also ask to translate some articles in the Russian Wikipedia, because I have no time for this, for example. I don't think that it is indicate that I don't know Russian language ;) And, yes, I agree with idea about the steward noticeboard.--Soul Train (talk) 10:45, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
The reason for my block is the fact that I do not support the separatists and is convinced that the Wikipedia encyclopedia and not a site of Ichkeria. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 10:54, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
I was sitting in the Chechen wikipedia as a bomb what good for me to write something tomorrow if I can block as well as participants from Chechnya are not eligible project if they do not write that today there are Chechen nation and its prizident Yandarbiyev and mayor of Grozny is also a man which does not work in the city for many years. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 11:11, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
It has long been said administrators do not know about the main rule wikipedia not preloaded photos of another person without the consent of the author. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 11:23, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Then he went into the meta wiki and complained that administrators on the Chechen wikipedia do not work, and asked to put themselves administrator, for which he was blocked. Umar could not write on chechen language, in which we have seen. There is no useful changes which he made. This is a war for power corrections and the Chechen Wikipedia, started with the insidious purposes, otherwise I can not imagine. It all comes down to the fact that we are "extremists," but it is not so much about it, said one of the participants in those discussions.

Umar arrogantly and wrongly accuses dastardly deed administrators Chechen Wikipedia. In cases like this, I can say that this blog with your photo created himself Umar to come here and complain abaut admins.Qonax (talk) 02:01, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

See who wants to develop definitions, and who drives a black power. I've been watching this dispute saw Umrah invited participants from Russian Wikipedia itself in support Qonax (talk) 02:15, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Funny, but those sysops - all of them - talking about porno photos, but the simple analysis shows that it wasn't Umar. They doing their proclamations without check-users, without links and proofs. According of their point of view, every vandal editions are editions of Umar, other Chechen people "who sold to Russians" or Russians themselves :) It is just the remark, later we will show more comprehensive picture of the situation.--Soul Train (talk) 10:08, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
  •   Not done, other issues at cewiki indicate that bureaucrat rights will not be given at this stage. — billinghurst sDrewth 15:04, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

In about four months before I request to be permanent Bureaucrat in the fa.wikinews. Then i agreed with other active users there and the local consensus has been reached. But because our last bureaucrat remove his permission there. Now in fa.wikinews we do not have any bureaucrat. I know that requests that need this access could done in Meta but in most of the times in special requests, it is necessary you know Farsi (Persian) and for all request that need bureaucrat access the users sholud come to Meta that we can do it there more easily and some times better (For example concluded request because of same language "Farsi"). So if possible conclude request and grant this to me. We need your help. (talk) 05:22, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, but the result is 6:0. Even this number of votes is insufficient to elect a bureaucrat. However among the votes 3 have only few contributions to fawikinews therefore the real vote is 3:0. Ruslik (talk) 18:42, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
  Not done Sorry, but we wouldn't even be granting permanent adminship with that sort of vote, plus the wiki has too few active users for a local bureaucrat to be elected (we're talking exactly 1 user with more than 5 edits in the last 30 days). Snowolf How can I help? 09:00, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

I'm user ArnoLagrange and I commit User:Tlustulimu, an other bureaucrat in the Esperanto Wikipedia, to send my demand forward. I was happy to contribute in Wikimedia projects for more than ten years and I hope I could contribute again after few years. But right now it just will be not possible."

  Done User:ArnoLagrange announced his retirement two weeks ago. a×pdeHello! 21:34, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
I think I shall express my disagreement. Announcing a retirement is not the same as requesting the removal of the rights, which should be explicity said. I don't mean that Tlustulimu is lying but looking at the links provided I see ArnoLagrange's retirement notice but not a clear rights removal request (and since he's been a steward I doubt he didn't remember the procedure for removal of the rights). I'm not going to reverse this unless the majority of the fellow stewards agree, but this request is based on weak evidence (at least not with easy verification) and I'd have abstained from performing it as it is; and would have asked for more information. Thanks. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 00:23, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
Agreed, this has to be reversed. Snowolf How can I help? 00:27, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
The reason for him to declare his retirement the way he choosed is unclear to me, too. But in case there has been something dubious about this request, I think it's better to remove the flags and wait if the user shows up again to correct the misstake.

  • I am asking for the removal of this user's bureaucrat flag. Coming off an inactivity of a year, he has removed administrator rights from 3 administrators [17] quoting a section on inactivity that was removed a year ago following a discussion in which he himself took part. The user is also unreachable on testwiki due to his talk page redirecting to his user page. This is just silly. Admin rights have been removed by another 'crat but we cannot remove 'crat rights locally. Snowolf How can I help? 23:22, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

I am a sysop at Zazaki Wikipedia. I'm since the beginning of the project actively there. Xoser was virtually absent for over two years (from 03:16, 24 December 2010 to 17:30, 9 February 2013). There is a conspiracy theory against Zazas, which is operated there, is a political assimilation propaganda. The actual Kurds (like Gomada & Co.) influence our youth in order to misuse them for their own political purposes. They start with a supposedly fair voting and quit it again theirselves. Where is there in the world, something sneaky? They are not into the Zaza language (Zazaki), but they try all align with the Kurdish wherever they can. --Mirzali (talk)

  Not done Please stop this. As Takabeg said on the request above, Wikipedia is no battleground. If you want Xosere's sysop status to be removed, you will need to get a local consensus about it.

I am a sysop at Zazaki Wikipedia. We had a discussion session on Mirzali's most recent sysop practice and decided to proceed to voting, which started on March 6 and ended on March 15. He has been consistently blocking users whom he has disagreements over article content and using abusive and curse words. The result of the voting is: Support: 5 and Oppose: 1 (disregarding Mirzali's own vote). --Xoser (talk) 07:00, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

It's all set and planned. They (Xoser, Gomada & Co.) formed a pseudo group, provoked me to collect alleged facts from this result, started a voting, stopped it to their own pleasure, and get away with it for request here. Isn't that a sneaky and evil conspiracy? -- Mirzali (talk) 04:57, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

  Not done There are obviously two approximately equal camps of editors in this Wikipedia, who are engaged in a long lasting conflict with each other. Both camps include administrators, who do not always behave well. However removing sysop access from a user belonging to only one camp will tip the balance of power in the direction of another camp. So, I think, absent a clear consensus for removal it is better to keep status quo. Ruslik (talk) 09:41, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
@Ruslik You have said, there are 2 camps of editors. If you really want to have the balance, then why one side has 2 admins? And i think, you missed the point too. Coz, the problem is sysop abuse, not camps. You didnt even have a warning to Mirzali. That means, you let him to insult and block users freely.

(There's not much of a community in the wiki and nobody has made an edit since last year. There are many articles that only have one word and a picture, therefore qualified for deletion but there are no administrators to initiate the deletion. The user(who couldn't speak Kashmiri at all) that had created these unhelpful one-word articles had gained temporary adminship over the wiki and had the script completely altered, Although Kashmiri is also written in Sharda, it's more widely understood in Devanagari -and these major changes also need administrator access. I need temporary access until the community grows.) फ़ाराह् देसाईं खान (talk) 20:24, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

With more thought and checking the history of the Wiki, I'll leave and continue to contribute in the script that is already set up in. For Devanagari Kashmiri, I think its best to create another Wiki for the Kashmiri in Devanagari script (like what happend with the Gurmukhi and Shahmukhi Punjabi Wikis).

Hi, I have already been administrator of this wiki for a year, and I would like if it is possible a permanent adminship on this wiki because the community is very small, there is much work to do and we need someone to check the wiki where the community there isn't all the time. I also need to have admin rights to continue those projects that were carrying out on this wiki. Thanks, Reder 11:43, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

How about a year extension? Hopefully the community will be large enough by then to generate the votes needed for permastatus. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 12:53, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
Ok, no problem. For now I can not guarantee a greater number of votes given the small size of the community. But if they are not enough for a permanent adminship I accept gladly a year extension. --Reder 06:54, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

My opinion is that while indeed 11 people voted, almost all of them have only single digit contributions to that project. While I don't doubt your suitability for the role, there isn't really community there... --Bencmq (talk) 18:16, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
  • I understand... But, we have a little community - here - Soul Train, Russavia, MongolWiki, Kaganer, Varlaam are really active! I am going to invite other users! I want to raise the Buryat wiki! I want to delete articles - mystifications and create 1,000 new articles there! I want to block vandals! I want to support the active users! But for this I need a permanent flag. --Gubin (talk), 7 September 2012 (UTC)
You now have admin rights and can delete articled and block vandals. It just that you have to come back after 6 month, after a new announcement locally, and your adminship will be extended.

  • Yes, I have read. But I can not understand You! Why I have to come back after 6 month to extend my adminship? We had choices of administrator to get permanent flag. And I satisfy the requirements. Why do not you want to give me the permanent status? Is it a great problem? No! What's the matter? --Gubin (talk), 8 September 2012 (UTC)
    Presumably the steward reviewing the request does not believe that there is sufficient size and activity to the community to yet grant permanent adminship. Note that after reviews there is generally a longer duration for subsequent following applications. — billinghurst sDrewth 08:24, 9 September 2012 (UTC)
You do not work on this wiki, and I work. There are 10 active users and 20 active bots. We have a community, and at the last time it was created almost 50 new articles! I do not have enough time and enough opinion of 6 months to do all that I want! And I do not want to apply once more. It is just a waste of time. --Gubin (talk), 9 September 2012 (UTC)

  Done (transwiki import rights; import is enabled from Wikipedia, as well as a number of other wikis). --MF-W 14:51, 14 March 2013 (UTC)


Tomorrow (15th march) I will hold a Wikipedia workshop, and need to mass create users (about 15). If we hit the create limit I will need the accountcreator rights to create them. Regards. MikaelLindmark (talk) 15:06, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

MikaelLindmark is a trusted user, a former sysop. This userright is no big issue, and no objections has been rised on the central discussion of the project, and I do not expect any to come. -- Lavallen 18:56, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
I am very skeptical about granting this userright. I have granted it now on about 4-5 occasions and it has not once been used. I suggest that the lifting of the account creation limit on the IP be instead pursued, tho that should have been requested with some time to spare on bugzilla. This is merely my opinion and experience with handling most of these requests and other stewards might differ and grant this request. Snowolf How can I help? 18:58, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
A bug is normally not responded within hours. (I have waited for months for some of them, without any response worth noting.) This userright is normally discovered to be usefull when it is to late, when the limit already has been triggered, and the Stewards are busy somewhere else. In this case, it has been requested a day in advance. -- Lavallen 19:13, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
The workshop went well. I guess the users didn't hit the limit or the network gave them real IP-numbers. I didn't had the time to investigate. /MikaelLindmark (talk) 13:37, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
Great! --Vituzzu (talk) 17:47, 15 March 2013 (UTC)


Base has enough support for the translationadmin flag. Regards, Vogone talk 20:38, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

What was the incident that Rschen7754 refered to? Ruslik (talk) 18:22, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
It came to my attention at OTRS/volunteering#Base; also [39] and Vituzzu desysopping at [40]. --Rschen7754 18:55, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
Since Wikidata has an active community nihil obstat to me. --Vituzzu (talk) 20:07, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
  Done since nobody else joined Rschen in opposing and indeed I hope the community will surely complain if abuse happens. --MF-W 22:57, 18 March 2013 (UTC)


Grant me, please, the user right "delete". The discussion was in portuguese. Thank you. Garsd (talk) 00:30, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

The "delete" user group doesn't exist on mwl.wikipedia. On mwl.wikipedia it's only administrators that can delete pages. And I can't see that you have the needed support from the local community. -- Tegel (Talk) 00:42, 23 March 2013 (UTC)


Can I get translation administrator flag? I'm already admin so I request myself.--분당선M (talk) 23:40, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

  Done --MF-W 00:12, 26 March 2013 (UTC)


I want to import enwp templates correctly (not by copy/pasting). Moreover I'm cleaning up lowp since a few weeks tagging pages and moving pages to the correct places, adding images from commons, etc... The right would help me, the community is defacto dead (ony a few users working on the actual content, see recent changes) and thus nobody was responding to my request. mabdul 11:47, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Let's give the community a moment to comment in the discussion there. Pundit (talk) 12:45, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
The request was posted on 15 February. --MF-W 23:56, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
You'd better request setup of import sources. Ruslik (talk) 18:13, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
Yep, you should file a bug for that. Currently, lo:Special:Import doesn't allow import from any sources. πr2 (t • c) 18:18, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
Well, the import status would of course allow uploads from XML files. However I agree that here probably it is best to give the transwiki status, as only pages from one wiki are planned to be imported. Additionally, while I trust the user to handle the importupload permission in a way that won't break the wiki (which it can!), with only the transwiki import possibility the potential problems would be lower (Mabdul is not a sysop there, so he can't clean up mistakenly imported stuff directly). --MF-W 19:18, 4 March 2013 (UTC) — This made me have an idea: Wikimedia_Forum#Idea:_standard_import_sources. --MF-W 19:27, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
Uhm, I never checked that because I thought the importing is turned on by default on every WMF wiki. o.O
I will check the forum thread shortly... mabdul 06:42, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

  Granted for 3 months to expire on 2013-06-27. (continued interest confirmed via mail). --MF-W 14:30, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
