Administrator access


Small community, almost no bureaucrats. The discussion is simply awaiting closure. TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 04:19, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Almost no bureaucrats? There are three and the first one I checked was active... -- Mentifisto 04:47, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
Already locally handled. --MF-W 14:32, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access


(your remarks) MohandesWiki (talk) 13:33, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

This request was copied over from [2] though I assume "administrator access" is meant. Vogone talk 13:58, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
@MohandesWiki: Could you please confirm whether this request is for Administrator or Bureaucrat. If it is for Bureaucrat fa Wikinews community is not big enough to have local Bureaucrats.--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 14:06, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  Not done The fawikinews community is too small to have local Bureaucrats (This request is for Bureaucrat as confirmed by Mardetanha). And it seems most of the voters are dragged from fa Wikipedia.--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 16:57, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Noting, for archive purposes, that the vote was originally not for him, but for another user. Most of the votes predate his request, see hist, and thus could not be considered a valid request. As far as I can see, these changes have now been undone. Savhñ 10:24, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

CheckUser access


Thanks in advance. Abbas 14:09, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

  Done. Welcome back! Trijnsteltalk 14:29, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks a lot.--Abbas 15:05, 5 April 2014 (UTC)


That comment above is a bit confusing - 'this is the place to request access': does that mean this page or the page just refered to? I'm requesting here so hope that's right. A vote is underway, currently 25 votes in favour, none against. I realise that this is the bare minimum acceptable for a CU vote but more may come in soon. The vote has been advertised on the Site Notice, Reading room and in the mailing list. Xania (talk) 20:10, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

This is the correct venue to put this in, but you would still need to identify before the flag is set. -- Mentifisto 20:17, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick reply. I have emailed with my identification (a few minutes ago). Do I need to wait for their response and then do something with that reply?--Xania (talk) 20:24, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
The flag would be set as soon as the identification noticeboard is updated, so we just wait until someone from the WMF notices the email. :-) -- Mentifisto 20:27, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
Well, it was just added, so the flag was set. Please contact an operator on IRC (see IRC/Channels#wikimedia-privacy) to get access to the #wikimedia-privacy and #wikimedia-checkuser channels. Also, please subscribe to the checkuser-l mailing list. Congratulations and regards, -- Mentifisto 20:38, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
@Xania: I just send you an email. Please look at it and send me a reply and I'll help you further. Trijnsteltalk 20:43, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Inactive admins. Community notification on Feb 9, user notification on Mar 4. --GZWDer (talk) 13:46, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Under what policy? m:AAR is supposed to be performed by stewards. --Rschen7754 18:22, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
Notably, you have not given the local community the option to develop their own inactivity policy if they so choose, or any form of explanation whatsoever. Because global policy was not followed, we cannot act on this request, so marking as   Not done. Please let stewards act as stewards in the process. --Rschen7754 18:31, 5 April 2014 (UTC)


I'm not sure local policy has been followed here: "The bureaucrat must be contacted on their user talk page and via email one month before the removal of permissions and again several days before the request is made." Per [3] that happened on 7 Mar. (Commenting as a local admin) --Rschen7754 00:23, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Please have a local bureaucrat request it as described in the policy you linked. --MF-W 00:25, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, it appears I skimmed over that portion of the text. I'll ask a 'crat to make a post in the next week or so. Mike VTalk 01:00, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

The user never used bureaucratic rights. Community is voted to remove Dcabrilo bureaucrat rights. [4], [5] User is notified fore removing its bureaucreat rights. --Kolega2357 (talk) 15:34, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

The user is inactive for a year and a half year. Community is voted to remove Dcabrilo sysop rights. [6], [7] User is notified fore removing its sysop rights. --Kolega2357 (talk) 15:34, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Wiki has not instated an inactivity policy, and vote appears involving too few users: please compare with previous analogue request from another project. Requesting user is also actively pursuing unusual management requests, many times canvassing users and forum-shopping on IRC. There is an ongoing Admin activity review that will take care of such problems with impartiality. --M/ (talk) 15:08, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
I agree with M7 on this. There are 4 or 5 users involved in the discussion but considering that there are more than 7 active admin's i don't think this is enough. --Shanmugamp7 (talk) 15:14, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
Yep, those rights will be better handled by AAR. --Vituzzu (talk) 16:21, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

He sido nombrado hace unos pocos días administrador durante un año en este proyecto. Yo había solicitado al menos un año y tres meses. Dado que no se me ha concedido el mínimo de lo que para mi es necesario (un año y tres meses), deseo renunciar. Lo siento, un saludo --Lmbuga (talk) 21:32, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

I don't understand why you want to make your laudable engagement, which surely is not motivated by gaining admin rights, dependent on the length of your adminship term. But of course that's your decision. On hold for the usual 24 hours for resignations. --MF-W 21:37, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
(Spanish) Pregúntele usted a User:Savh. Él sabe sobre el pobre seguimiento que se ha hecho sobre mi situación pues él es el responsable de haberme nombrado administrador por un año estando yo en total desacuerdo con ese nombramiento. No se ha dignado a responder en su página de discusión (he esperado su respuesta durante tres días, a pesar de haber él editado). He perdido la fe en wikimedia gracias a él. Acabo de ser nombrado por un año cuando he solicitado al menos, como mínimo, un año y tres meses. No acepto menos, él ya lo sabe. Si alguien tiene a bien solicitarme explicaciones de por que no acepto menos, se lo explico. Un saludo. Mientras tanto, lo que ocurre es que siento que no hay confianza en mí, y, por no haber confianza, deseo no ser administrador donde antes ya he sido burócrata. Jamás volveré a solicitar permisos: Aquí no se respeta debidamente la dedicación que se ha tenido (es unicamente mi opinión)--Lmbuga (talk) 23:13, 27 April 2014 (UTC).
Aceptaría ser administrador por un año y tres meses, pero por un año, no. Si alguien quiere saber el motivo, puedo explicarme en castellano, gallego o portugués. User:Savh debería entender el motivo--Lmbuga (talk) 23:20, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
He llegado a la conclusióm de que no me hace falta ser administrador en un espacio en el que no hay administradores ni usuarios. Como usuario (como único usuario), puedo -siempre con buena intención- hacer lo que considere oportuno para conseguir que este proyecto tenga futuro--Lmbuga (talk) 23:38, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
I am not aware of any special reason why the 1 year adminship is not sufficient, and am sorry that the user is not satisfied and wants more. I decline from participating further in this thread seeing the gratitude shown for my actions, and the impossiblility to properly celebrate a national holiday without being told to be the cause of the loss of trust in the whole of Wikimedia. Thank you. Savhñ 23:47, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
(spanish) Si no se me retira la condición de administrador o se me extiende tres meses como he solicitado, juro que no la voy a ejercer. Ustedes mismos. Yo no me merezco esto por tres míseros meses. Tres miserables meses. --Lmbuga (talk) 01:02, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Our community requests appointment of a permanent administrator. --Санюн Вадик (talk) 10:33, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
I doubt that we will apply permanent administrator rights. The community is too small so in this case we would generally do repeated, extending rights application. — billinghurst sDrewth 10:33, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
Our community is small, but a few years before we elected a permanent administrator. Stewards Ruslik0 and MF-Warburg gave earlier flag permanent administrator. --Санюн Вадик (talk) 05:05, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

… is not sufficient for permanent administrators and that has been the general approach by stewards. — billinghurst sDrewth 05:53, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
41 is a nominal number. Real community is much smaller. Those who understand the language - there are about 10 people. They participated in the vote and called for a permanent administrator. Our Wiki has always been about 10 active users.--Санюн Вадик (talk) 05:45, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

Miscellaneous requests


I request the permission of importer transwiki importer rights. Unapersona (talk) 14:34, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

What are you going to import? Ruslik (talk) 18:21, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
Here we are asking from which wiki, what amounts, and have you considered whether transwiki import rights are not sufficient?  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:10, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
I'm going to import from Catalan Wikipedia.--Unapersona (talk) 18:05, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
@Unapersona: it seems that transwiki importing would be sufficient. Do you need the rights temporarily to import those few pages, or would you like to keep it for longer to import future pages as well? Ajraddatz (talk) 17:42, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: I would like to keep it for longer to import future pages. Thanks.--Unapersona (talk) 17:48, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
  Granted for 1 year to expire on 2015-4-23. Thanks for your patience. Please re-apply for this right after a year, or become a local administrator (who have this right by default). Ajraddatz (talk) 17:53, 23 April 2014 (UTC)


Please give me importer flag. To import (importupload) some books more easily in project namespace (for the Collection extension). No exact timeframe agreed, you can make it temporary for e.g. 6 months if you so wish. I have experience with the import tool since 2006 on several wikis including it.wikt and Nemo 17:09, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

  Granted for 6 months to expire on 2014-10-23. Ajraddatz (talk) 17:27, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
