Administrator access


This user have sufficient conditions to get 3 months admin rights.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 17:36, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

  Granted for 3 months to expire on 2015-11-01. I would be willing to change this to 6 months too if so desired by the local community. Ajraddatz (talk) 01:11, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: This is my fault but the actual discussion is for permanent sysop. I didn't read the discussion carefully and wrote here for 3 months only. Now, I came to know that it was for permanent adminship. So, can you please grant permanent sysop writes to user:Manojkhurana on hiwiki? Thanks for help.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 08:05, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: Please consider, because this user have sufficient conditions to get permanent admin rights. Results are summarised in a table at the bottom of the discussion.Mala chaubey (talk) 08:36, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
You claim there is a table (also for the request above), but I dont see one (or two). --MF-W 10:41, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
I think she wanted to point out the conditions of hiwiki. But at present a candidate requires 80% consensus and some other experiences. User:Manojkhurana has those experience and got sufficient consensus also.Satyam Mishra --talk-- 18:14, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
I would be fine granting permenant access with a 9/1 result. Are there existing permenant admins on hiwiki? If not, I would prefer to go for temporary but an extended time, such as a year. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:42, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
Afaik all sysops on hiwiki are permanent; the most recent one given by me above. --MF-W 22:30, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: Yes! Presently all sysops are permanent; user:Manojkhurana and me were granted 3 month's temp access, and after the expiration of this period both the proposals (this one and the above one) were for permanent access (स्थाई/स्थायी = permanent). user:Manojkhurana is now eligible to get this access as per local discussion by 9/1 results and we request to grant him the same! We are sorry for miscommunication above. Hope this will be now granted. Thanks a lot! --Satyam Mishra --talk-- 07:16, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz and MF-Warburg: We are sorry for miscommunication, user:Manojkhurana has a successful RfA with the 80% support of Hindi Wiki community during 1 week discussion. please grant him permanent sysop writes as per discussion on hiwiki. Thanks for your cooperation.Mala chaubey (talk) 08:20, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
At present hi:user:Mala_chaubey, me and hi:user:सत्यम्_मिश्र are active and permanent sysop at hiwiki (We all 3 have given our views above). But we need extra members which can handle the whole work we have to do. Since, this user get more then 80% support and fullfill all requirements at hiwiki. This misunderstanding came because of my fault. So, we will be happy if you can give him permanent rights on hiwiki.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 14:49, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Илья Драконов

Hello! I am requesting for Administrator rights in cuwiki. There are 0 active users and we need to save cuwikipedia! I am an Editor, Rollback and Supresredirect in Russian Wikipedia and Admin in wikimedia incubator. I work also with the test Old Russian wiki, so I know the language. With respect, Ilya Drakonov (talk) 17:04, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

  On hold until 10 August 2015. Ilya Drakonov, we still need to fullfill the formalities. Please announce your intentions at this page and wait a week. There's a sysop there and some active users in the past days. Thanks for your understanding. —MarcoAurelio 18:10, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
Ok, thank you. Ilya Drakonov (talk) 06:19, 4 August 2015 (UTC).
  Oppose. New user without any meaningful content contributions, language proficiency is questionable. Also, his statement "because there is nobody there" is false. I am active local sysop there, and the global ones are also enabled and sufficient enough to fight vandalism and spam. ОйЛ (OiL) (talk) 19:33, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
Addition. And so I went to TranslateWiki to check on MediaWiki CU localisation, and found there the user making mass edits where he just copypaste phrases from Russian language locale with literary just replacing letter Е with Ѣ. I have to suspect it to be some kind of prank if not vandalism. So,   strong oppose. ОйЛ (OiL) (talk) 20:14, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
@ОйЛ: Thanks for your comments. However we do not carry on votes in this page. If @Илья Драконов: has opened a discussion at cuwiki, please voice your opinion over there, which we will review after a week. Thanks for your understanding. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio 11:42, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
MarcoAurelio, I think mr @ОйЛ: thinks I am a vandal. The main rule in the Wikimedia Projects is to be friendly with all contributors, but ОйЛ is not friendly, he doesn't work himself in cu.wikipedia, and he does not want anybody else to work. He must know, that if there will be no users working there, the wiki can be moved back to the incubator. Best regards, Ilya Drakonov (talk) 13:10, 5 August 2015 (UTC).
Please don't make such nonsensical claims about moving back to Incubator, and rather link to us the local request you made (if it exists). --MF-W 17:21, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
User:MF-Warburg, here you go. I think we'd need Russian speaking steward to review this. And I would like to request steward action to prevent meatpuppetry attempts. ОйЛ (OiL) (talk) 17:26, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
I don't need it any more, I will continue working hard in other wiki's. Ilya Drakonov (talk) 07:21, 6 August 2015 (UTC).

Permanent adminship requested this time. Satdeep Gill (talk) 02:59, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

  Done - IMHO the user has got enough community support for permanent adminship. Those who disagree feel free to change at will. —MarcoAurelio 10:49, 8 August 2015 (UTC)



Hi. Today I got the message on voy/sv that my temporary admin right has expired. But this adminship was based on an election on voy/sv (see link to the archiv). So I am not aware that this adminship was temporary. Was it a mistake? I am not really sure why the right was revoked today.-- DerFussi 08:59, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

@DerFussi and Ajraddatz: Your request was granted for 4 months. If this was intentional or a mistake I don't know. Ajr has been pinged. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 11:47, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
It may have something to do with the 1 week running period instead of 2 weeks, which is ususally required for a permanent adminship. You have a local bureaucrat, Riggwelter, who was active 3 days ago. What is his view? Can he grant the right? Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 10:11, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
"2 weeks, which is ususally required for a permanent adminship" - what is that supposed to mean? Is that a steward policy? --MF-W 23:17, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
In my view, there was not enough of a local community active at the time to warrant permanent adminship. If the local bureaucrat disagrees and is willing to grant permanent access, then I would not object at all. Ajraddatz (talk) 21:40, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
@Riggwelter: has been notified. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 10:43, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! Ajraddatz (talk) 04:34, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
If DerFussi would like to keep his adminship on svvoy, he is welcome to apply on the relevant page. Please note that, according to the local policy on svvoy, failure to login in and display any activity for three months will lead to the loss of the adminship. Riggwelter (talk) 10:39, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
I have applied again. The wiki was abandoned for a while and seems to be slightly more active in August. Hopefully it will become more active soon. -- DerFussi 14:39, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

I'm closing this request since the RfA at sv.wikivoyage is ongoing and there's a local bureaucrat who can take care of granting the permissions once it is closed, if successful. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio 11:28, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

  Comment User's temporary access just recently expired, I would like to vouch his request for renewal of his temporary access Mardetanha talk 22:26, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Just fixed it Mardetanha talk 15:23, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
The discussion linked is from February 2015. We can't renew your access without assess that there's no opposition. Please open a new RfA or announce the community that your intent to renew access. —MarcoAurelio 13:22, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
User was an admin for many months in good standing and had had no issue and no complaints, I see no reason to why can't that be enough for renewal Mardetanha talk 13:42, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
Mardetanha, as much as I trust you and your words, rules should be the same for everyone. I can't in good faith renew this user's adminship while I've been asking other users under similar circumstances to announce their intentions to their communities, and have even denied some of those requests for lacking such announcement. I know that in the past the procedure on rights renewal was sightly different, but that's the current practice followed by the majority of us. There's no mistrust on you nor on Kasir, it's simply about what I think it's fair and just. Thanks for your understanding. If other stewards disagree with me, feel free to proceed upon it. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 13:57, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
I will ask the user to do so, but generally speaking, user even had enough vote for permanent adminship but since the change of practice, it is now temporary, anyway for me that voting or such for votings while is has no issue and complaints is enough for renewal Mardetanha talk 14:12, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
With 5 or more support votes from regular users of the project I'm granting permanent adminship, as somewhat agreed here. However I did not handled Kasir's original request. Thanks. —MarcoAurelio 14:16, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

  Done.The CheckUser policy does not mention a process of regranting rights without community vote or ArbCom motion, and we can find recent discussions about this here and here. However arwiki does have a local policy which allows rights restoration upon request of the user, if no more than a period of time elapsed, ranging from 3 to 9 months. Based on that and the past precedent of this, I am granting this request. Welcome back, Antime. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 10:02, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

DARIO SEVERI@pt.wikipedia

On August 1, Dario was blocked by edit warring and disruptive editing. According to the bureaucrats policy, the bureaucrat status should be removed immediately after a block. The block was considered correct by the community and sysops. Érico Wouters (msg) 23:40, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Though It makes no sense to remove bureaucrat flag because of single block, Can I ask for second local bureaucrat to confirm this request ? Mardetanha talk 06:04, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
I think unnecessary. The bureaucrat policy of Portuguese Wikipedia is enough clear about blocks involving bureaucrats. See this sentence: "Qualquer outra ocorrência que resulte no bloqueio do usuário (parcial ou total), como, por exemplo, ataques pessoais, levará à remoção imediata." Érico Wouters (msg) 06:20, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
sadly I can't read Portuguese and Google translation is vague for me, that is why I need second crat confirming this request Mardetanha talk 06:28, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
@Mardetanha and Érico Júnior Wouters: I can read Portuguese. Under Remoção imediata (inmediate removal) I see that "Qualquer outra ocorrência que resulte no bloqueio do usuário (parcial ou total), como, por exemplo, ataques pessoais, levará à remoção imediata" which roughly/crappy translated means that anyother violation that results on the user block, such as for example personal attacks, will carry the inmediate removal. The block review discussion ended with the result that the block was correct on the grounds of edit war and disruptive behaviour.Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 11:37, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

As CU LOG in ar.wikipedia the last using of cu tools is more than a year ago then as a bureaucrat in ar.wikipedia and because of this request based on global check users policy I ask CU rights removal of Antime. I notified [2] him a week before this request. Thanks in advance.--Abbas 11:16, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

The global policy has, as far as I'm aware, always been interpreted as "any activity" and not "CU activity". A limit based on CU activity could encourage unnecessary checks to comply with the inactivity criterion. Of course, it can be established as a stricter local guideline to expect that. I'll wait for input from other stewards. Savhñ 11:23, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
The CheckUser policy says that any inactive user account will have their CU access removed. The interpretation of such clause that we use is that the account must be totally inactive (no edits, no log actions and no CU actions). Unless local policy mandates that the CU will loose its status because the user does not perform CU actions, I think we should decline this request. The user has been active on june, 2015; so it is not totally inactive. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 11:23, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
please keep this request in hold for 24 hours. We will discuss it locally. Thanks again.--Abbas 12:03, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
this is local policy at arwiki, the CU must use the tool during one year at least, otherwise his CU access would be removed --Ibrahim.ID »» 20:31, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
The local policy do state that checkusers who haven't used their checkuser access for more than a year will have their rights removed. (Point 1 of section 2.3 in the policy linked above. Original discussion about this point was here.) So, the question here is: Does the global CheckUser policy interpretation override the local one or not? Personally, I am fine both ways. --Meno25 (talk) 05:52, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
@Meno25: If local policy is stricter and non contradictory to global policy, then I'd say it's valid. Please add a summary of local guidelines at CheckUser policy/Local policies for future instances. The inactivity clause is a recurrent discussion I've tried to clarify in three instances now. —MarcoAurelio 21:52, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
  Done; please thank Antime for his work. —MarcoAurelio 21:56, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
Hello, Steward
For some reason (probably technical) this is the first notification I've received. My CU activaty is minimal but I check the CU logs frequently and respond to ar-CU mailing list. Nevertheless to mention this request conflicts with our local policy, I left comment in ar-wiki for further discussion. I'm kindly request to withhold this, for more discussion. regards --Antime (My Talk) 23:42, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
Hello Antime. Yes, please take back to your local community. Under the policy you cite, a bureaucrat (Elph) and an administrator (Meno25), both concurr that you should have your rights removed. If you say that this request conflicts the local policy please explain why too. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 23:48, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
@Antime: I will hold off the remaining parts of removal. Please promptly discuss with your colleagues and community and get back to us.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:25, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
Although I understand ar-wiki local policy allows me to claim back CU rights within 3 months of removal without further nomination (3.2.5) local policy also stated "Email and talk page notification shall be sent 14 days prior removal requests"(3.2.3). Moreover we discussed a few CU policy issuss on last May,8Th and none has argue any lack of activity or cues.
A couple of users probably driven by enthusiasm are lobbying lately to spread a new wave of rapid rights removal. Fortunately I'm addressing all these issues with our local community [3]. Surely will keep you/Stewards updated and informed. Best regards.--Antime (My Talk) 02:54, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

In the initial post I asked opinions about all old admins but not Candalua, who is no longer involved in the project.

Even if there is no community to discuss it, our own best practices require that some announcement be put up which specifically identifies itself as a request for adminship for a specific user. After a week, if there is no opposition or comments, then I will grant him temporary adminship.

Hello there. The reason why I would like to do an admin request is because I have studied several Gothic grammar books and due to the number of mistakes in the Wikipedia interface of the Gothic language I decided at a certain point to simply stop contributing, instead, I would like to an admin request now to clean up the mess, one of the reasons is that I have enough time to do this. The main page for example contains several sentences which are incorrect and misspelled words. If I get adminship (or a temporary one), it's possible for me to remove all mistakes which I spot and apply the correct grammar to them. Another thing which I would like to change are the language proficiency texts for Gothic (got-1, got-2 etc.), they contain sentences like: This person speaks Middle Gothic. I would rather like to change that to "Gothic at an average level", but with correct vocabulary, as this sentence reads like there exists some kind of Middle Gothic. I also need to change some of the system messages which currently aren't good, and the things from translatewiki don't get exported to anymore too. I know that users at Wikipedias in ancient languages usually don't have the knowledge to contribute, but I also think that possible contributors are scared away by the grammar mistakes from users at the Gothic wikipedia which have good motivation and positive intentions, but which create texts which aren't of good quality. I also would like to change the current transliteration system. The current one requires users to copy-paste a javascript at each page, I 'm sure that I and the other users can find a better way to do it like an automatic javascript at every page.

MZaplotnik, Xyxyx & Hladnikm@slwikiversity

I request for the prolongation of admin rights (after first and second approval). After one week of discussion being open no user has responded. There has been more than one year now with no admin in slovene wikiversity although the need to have them exists. --Janezdrilc (talk) 12:55, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

  Comment MZaplotnik and Xyxyx have been inactive on slwikiversity for quite some time (since 2012 / early 2013 -- though both seem active on slwiki)... only Hladnikm is currently active. Just a note... Personally I'm not fond of promoting rather inactive users to admins. Trijnsteltalk 22:05, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

As I am informed there was some lack of inactivity on Wikiversity due to the loss of adminship - the zeal for cooperation in some way went down with posting new requests (they were initiators of the project). If I may suggest I would try once more for all of them to get them back to Wikiversity and help the community. I think that in case of temporary rights it's better to try then not to try. --Janezdrilc (talk) 22:59, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

  CommentThe whole conversation at slWV is a construction. The dates on the requests are 2012, and the page has been built in 2014. I do not think that we have evidence of people requesting rights, and a community having a reasonable chance for conversation. If rights are required, we need a proper conversation where someone nominates themself, or agrees to being nominated, and the community having the chance for comment. The purpose of rights is to allow active people to fulfil a role.  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:24, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

I understand. I have created the page for admin requests (link above) in 2014 for the reason of standardization of request pages across all sl: wikis. It also contains archive of 2012 requests (from the old page). The v:sl: community is very small so the actual voting can't be carried out - this is the situation of all sl: wikis except Wikipedia. There is no other way to become admin (again) than this way. They are highly trusted users and all of them are admins at least on one project. --Janezdrilc (talk) 11:31, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

I sent them a notice to confirm their agreement on promotion. --Janezdrilc (talk) 12:15, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

They all confirmed. I'am sorry for procedure inconviniences. --Janezdrilc (talk) 17:25, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

You are missing my point. This is not a suitable process. If they wish to be admins, there is a process to be followed, and they should follow it. I do not see that it is proper for these users to be nominated by proxy, and not confirm their nominations on a page. If they canot do that, they are not worth having as administrators. So unless they are going to be active as administrators, it is better that they do not have the rights. They are real, not party decorations.  — billinghurst sDrewth 19:58, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

In slovene community the selfnomination is understood as kind of "less hygienic" (of course, such cases are completely acceptable). So it is common in our praxis that someone - if possible - nominate you and manage then the further process for you. I was nominated for admin on q:sl: by User:Dbc334, I agreed and got promoted. No problem with that. I am an admin for 7 years on w:sl: and 6 years on s:sl: and I think I know the whole slovene community quite well. What can I say more. --Janezdrilc (talk) 20:53, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

You are still missing my point. I covered both scenarios in my previous reply. And your niceness in process or not, stewards require this certainty of activity to comply with our due diligence, and our duty of care.  — billinghurst sDrewth 21:13, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Hm, I don't know if I still follow you... they confirmed the nomination but didn't request for themselves here neither on v:sl:, am I right? (Is there any page in Meta where I can read about the whole procedure and conditions about adminship?) --Janezdrilc (talk) 21:42, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

There is some admin work to be done at SL WV and noone can't do it because of the lack of sysops at the project. I understand my almost 2 year inactivity at SL WV might be a problem. Give admin status at least to Hladnikm but please consider he almost never used admin tools while Xyxyx and me did use them. @Billinghurst, previous requests for adminships are not a construct, they can be seen here, Janezdrilc simply moved them to more appropriate page title (RfA) and made a local announcement there so other members of local community can express their opinions. And yes, self promotion is not an ususal practice in Slovene wiki community. MZaplotnik (contribs) 10:41, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
On a construct there is no evidence that the candidates are requesting the rights, so please get them to confirm their candidature on the page linked, as I have asked above. It is that simple.  — billinghurst sDrewth 15:08, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

All three of us confirmed the request for adminship here and there hasn't been no objections from other members of WV commnutiny for almost two weeks.. See top of the linked page, here's my brief translation:
