Administrator access


I request permanent adminship on sq.wikipedia. Thank you! Olsi (talk) 00:05, 29 August 2015 (UTC)[]

Have you contacted the bureaucrats about it (one participated in the request, ok)? --MF-W 00:11, 29 August 2015 (UTC)[]
I did, but because of his vote, I'm afraid he will take a lot of time to approve my request. --Olsi (talk) 00:13, 29 August 2015 (UTC)[]
Normally one of the other bureaucrats should handle it. --MF-W 00:16, 29 August 2015 (UTC)[]
Other bureaucrats are inactive. --Olsi (talk) 00:17, 29 August 2015 (UTC)[]
The active bureaucrat hasn't edited since you requested that he approve your request. I think we should give him a few more days to respond to it before taking action ourselves. MBisanz talk 20:14, 30 August 2015 (UTC)[]
It's been a week now since I contacted him and he hasn't replied yet. --Olsi (talk) 22:15, 3 September 2015 (UTC)[]
MBisanz, how long should we wait for him to respond? --Olsi (talk) 00:02, 4 September 2015 (UTC)[]
I just sent him an email. If he does not respond by Monday, I'll flag you. MBisanz talk 00:38, 4 September 2015 (UTC)[]
Ok, thanks! --Olsi (talk) 00:39, 4 September 2015 (UTC)[]
He flagged me, thanks! --Olsi (talk) 16:48, 4 September 2015 (UTC)[]

I do not see that there is a clear consensus, and the community has expressed concerns at some of your actions. I have suggested that you reapply to the community in a minimum of three months.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:31, 3 September 2015 (UTC)[]

Дагиров Умар@cewiki

I ask to give me admin rights. I see no reason to wait. Active members have already voted. And I need to work. Thank you. --Дагиров Умар (talk) 18:25, 13 September 2015 (UTC)[]

  Done. Has gone through several temp admins, now given permanent adminship. Bennylin 11:35, 14 September 2015 (UTC)[]


See Special:PermanentLink/13454593#Doostdar@fawikivoyage, it was granted earlier but was removed after. Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 07:50, 17 September 2015 (UTC)[]

--Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 12:00, 13 September 2015 (UTC)[]

You're at 7/4/0 right now. Thats 63,63%. I don't remember having granted rights to people not having at least 75% of support but will not resolve and instead let this to be discussed. —MarcoAurelio 18:24, 13 September 2015 (UTC)[]
I have to likewise express my doubts that barely two thirds support is enough to grant sysop bits. Off the top of my head I can't think of a project where users are promoted with this low % regularly. Snowolf How can I help? 14:27, 14 September 2015 (UTC)[]
Besides you can see contributions of one of the supporters Only in the RfA (no global edits either, it would be good to CU this and Mjbmr due to bright history of the user) but two 'crats of Persian Wikipedia are among opposes votes and one of them were admin in this wiki (myself) Amir (talk) 16:35, 16 September 2015 (UTC)[]
P.S. I found another user with only one edit too voy:fa:ویژه:مشارکت‌ها/Ali_Saki Amir (talk) 16:39, 16 September 2015 (UTC)[]
If you look at the contributions, you can opt out some oppose votes as well as support votes. But also there was no abuse done prior. Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 07:55, 17 September 2015 (UTC)[]
(Drive-by comment) The user is currently blocked at that wiki. --Rschen7754 22:45, 20 September 2015 (UTC)[]
Not done - insufficient support and ongoing local issues prevent me from granting this request. Sorry :( Ajraddatz (talk) 07:11, 24 September 2015 (UTC)[]

  On hold for one day per standard operating procedure for self-requests. Linedwell (talk) 13:18, 11 September 2015 (UTC)[]
I thought that, since bureaucrats got the right to remove sysop rights on fr-wiki, stewards were no more in charge of it. Shouldn't Ludo29 ask for the removal of his fr-wiki admin rights only on fr-wiki? Hégésippe | ±Θ± 19:04, 11 September 2015 (UTC)[]
Yes, they should be removed locally there then. --Stryn (talk) 19:22, 11 September 2015 (UTC)[]
Nonsense, stewards can remove everything someone requests to be removed from his account, if the right is changeable from Meta. --MF-W 23:29, 11 September 2015 (UTC)[]
They still can do it, but does it mean that, after bureaucrats' powers increase on frwiki, they still are allowed to do it, without any local decision, overstepping their rights and neglecting local bureaucrats' rights? I'm not sure... Hégésippe | ±Θ± 01:33, 12 September 2015 (UTC)[]
No, frwiki has opted for local bureaucrats with desysop capabilities, so frwiki will do the desysop. Same as with enwiki and a few other wikis that have decided that as well. Elfix 05:40, 12 September 2015 (UTC)[]
It is written at the top of this page "This page is for requests to have stewards grant or revoke administrator, bureaucrat, checkuser, and oversight rights on Wikimedia projects which do not have a local permissions procedure." So admin rights should be removed by frwiki's bureaucrats. Mathis B (talk) 08:00, 12 September 2015 (UTC)[]

Could one or another please stop suggesting that "admin rights should be removed" as long as the request is on hold? Thank you. --Krd 08:06, 12 September 2015 (UTC)[]

Erm, this is a Steward request page. Do you mind if we discuss the requests that are submitted to us? Elfix 08:09, 12 September 2015 (UTC)[]
sysop@commonswiki and oversight@frwiki have been removed. For the frwiki sysop flag, the request have been transfered to frwiki bureaucrats. Linedwell (talk) 08:30, 12 September 2015 (UTC)[]
@Linedwell: You forgot to add a reason while removing OS@frwiki :) Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 08:53, 12 September 2015 (UTC)[]
@MarcoAurelio: Woops, I probably missed my copy/paste. Sorry. Linedwell (talk) 08:54, 12 September 2015 (UTC)[]
As much as I dislike bureaucrat removing sysop and other rights and the bureaucracy behind all this, if frwiki got transfered that power I think it should be them who removes the rights; unless obviously in emergencies and the like. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 08:53, 12 September 2015 (UTC)[]

Tracked in Phabricator:
task T111847

Per Global renamers#Removal_of_access. Right not used for +1 year. Steinsplitter (talk) 12:02, 8 September 2015 (UTC)[]

Done. —MarcoAurelio 17:33, 8 September 2015 (UTC)[]
I used my access back in March of this year when there was some sort of big event involving user account renaming. Since then it's been difficult for me to find accounts to rename, especially since I wanted to focus on Danish ones. - Kaare (talk) 17:52, 8 September 2015 (UTC)[]
Your global rename log shows 0 renames since you were given access. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 17:58, 8 September 2015 (UTC)[]
Then the log is incomplete. On dawiki I see four of my renames (but there were many more). - Kaare (talk) 18:14, 8 September 2015 (UTC)[]
You used the local Special:RenameUser page (but this page should be disabled by default)? If yes, then they are local but not global renames. Best --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:20, 8 September 2015 (UTC)[]
I also did a bunch of renames on elwiki as witnessed by my contributions there (resulting page moves). In inclusion, don't trust the global rename log, at least not for entries from back then. - Kaare (talk) 18:21, 8 September 2015 (UTC)[]
Indeed: Special:GlobalRenameQueue/request/3902/view. I think that they won't be seen in the logs because they didn't have an account on Meta, would it be? --Stryn (talk) 18:25, 8 September 2015 (UTC)[]
Global rename log will be created even if there is no account on meta. --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:34, 8 September 2015 (UTC)[]
No, that would not matter. The global rename log should be triggered, and we've now discovered a pretty serious bug where, or things were not logged, or if logged they've dissapeared. Sorry Kaare, I'm regranting you the rights and reporting this straight to Phabricator. Will do a review for all accounts below too. —MarcoAurelio 18:36, 8 September 2015 (UTC)[]
Thank you, Marco. If anyone still want proof of my participation this year, check the mailing list or even IRC backlogs. - Kaare (talk) 18:40, 8 September 2015 (UTC)[]

What do you mean by "Common Forum"? Also, the checkuser request you linked to was not yet carried out. --MF-W 19:28, 10 September 2015 (UTC)[]
Common Forum, user talks. Oleg3280 (talk) 19:31, 10 September 2015 (UTC)[]
FTR, just as in the previous case (Special:Diff/12195657), there was no formal discussion (or, rather, no vote) of revoking my permissions on the project. Thus, I suggest that Oleg3280 starts one first (perhaps by just adding the usual “support”, “oppose”, “abstain”, “comments” subsections to the discussion just started b:ru:Special:Diff/121465?), while this request is put on hold until the vote is over. Thanks in advance. — Ivan Shmakov (dc) 19:45, 10 September 2015 (UTC)[]
  Not done - We won't remove rights without consensus, that means a community vote or the process defined in local policies. I think you both have to explain things (why Oleg blocked Ivan, and why Ivan is being accused for sock puppetry by Oleg). See SN for further details. —MarcoAurelio 11:19, 16 September 2015 (UTC)[]

Removal of bureaucrat access (I do not wish to withdraw my admin access at this moment) per own request. I feel that the bureaucrats should be the more active moderators on the wiki, and the task should mainly be simply/bureaucratic. Currently I'm one of the lesser active admins on nlwiki, I hope that in the near future there will be some more active editing periods from my side, and at this moment I do think that helping out someday with small admin tasks could happen during those periods. I do however feel that the current bureaucrats overall are not the most active admins and hope that my withdrawal will bring some of the more active users to the idea to request bureaucratship. In light of the upcoming reconfirmation it is a good time to withdraw my bureaucratship. Basvb (talk) 23:11, 24 September 2015 (UTC)[]

User:Katxis is the new user account for the user who has previously been known as User:Chabi and User:Chabi1. Please see, for example, lad:Messaje de Usador:Katxis#Shalom. Katxis is in touch off-wiki with User:Universal Life (who is an admin and bureaucrat on ladwiki), and Universal Life was sufficiently convinced of Katxis's identity that he flagged Katxis as administrator and bureaucrat, in place of the Chabi/Chabi1 accounts. Katxis can no longer use the Chabi/Chabi1 accounts, and agrees to have them de-flagged here. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:59, 25 September 2015 (UTC)[]

Hello. I ask to give me a permanent flag Administrator. Sorry that is not waited two weeks I just need to work. Thanks! --Дагиров Умар (talk) 17:35, 5 September 2014 (UTC)[]

Quite a few of the accounts that voted for you have no other edits than to RfA/RfB pages. I am not comfortable granting permanent adminship based on the few votes of people who actually edit the project. However, I could grant a year of temporary access if you'd like based on that request. Ajraddatz (talk) 17:47, 5 September 2014 (UTC)[]
No it is not necessary. I'd rather leave this job. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 18:22, 5 September 2014 (UTC)[]
Are you sure? All you would need to do is create another week-long request after a year to continue being an admin after that. From what I can tell you do good work on cewiki, but per our own operating procedures I can't give you unexpiring access to the bit. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:33, 5 September 2014 (UTC)[]
Ok. It was a long time ago. I'm tired of the voting. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 20:19, 5 September 2014 (UTC)[]
We will try to meet the conditions. Then please summarize the results at its discretion. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 09:42, 6 September 2014 (UTC)[]

  Granted for 1 year to expire on 2015-09-06. To prolong your (interface) adminship, please start another election a few days before your temporary access expires, and after a week post your request again to this page. Thanks. --MF-W 11:44, 6 September 2014 (UTC)[]

...ok. @Дагиров Умар: you can get permanent access if at least 8 users who are actually active on the project vote for you (i.e. not people who you asked to vote for you). Also, given the past issues on the project, further votes might be a good idea, as much of a hassle as they can be. Ajraddatz (talk) 00:08, 7 September 2014 (UTC)[]

I have recently attempted to contact both administrators and the community for a variety of issues. See Steward requests/Miscellaneous/2015-07#Request for edit of Ladino Wikipedia Home Page template. The administrators and community have been quiet recently.

This morning, I just started a project to try to improve formatting on ladwiki pages written in the Hebrew alphabet. Almost immediately, I ran across this article, lad:אלכס אוונס a non-notable biographical article written in Hebrew, not Ladino. (See there, where I placed an English synopsis.) Given the possibility of my running into more such articles, I thought I would request temporary administrator status for one month so that I could delete such pages myself, instead of running here each time I need a deletion. I would hope to finish this exercise within one month, but might allow for the possibility of requesting renewal for a second month. I doubt this will take longer than that. I am reluctant to request permanent administrator status because my mastery of Ladino is not very good. I believe my record across wikis is strong enough to be able to justify a temporary grant of the "mop". Thank you. StevenJ81 (talk) 17:51, 5 July 2015 (UTC)[]

Please, put a note at a local discussion board on ladwiki. Ruslik (talk) 20:41, 5 July 2015 (UTC)[]
Well, I'll give it a try. I'll write it in Spanish (machine-translated) and Hebrew, as well as English, because that will probably give me the best chance to be understood.
It's hard to know where to try to do that, though.
I haven't been able to find a more active discussion board than those. Unless you prefer me to try something different, I'll try the last-listed of these four. Does that work for you? StevenJ81 (talk) 21:03, 5 July 2015 (UTC)[]

{{Inprogress}} Until July 12. -- Avi (talk) 14:17, 6 July 2015 (UTC)[]

I suppose I'm about eight hours short of the full week here, but I'll be traveling the rest of today. There have been no comments one way or the other at the local discussion board, and in fact only around 3-4 edits on the entire wiki at all that weren't (a) me, (b) global sysops or (c) bots.

  •   Granted for 3 months to expire on 2015-10-12. Discussion open for sufficient length of time without significant opposition. Three months is usually the standard minimum, and with Steven suggesting that one month may be insufficient, I see no problem with a three-month term for now. If longer is needed, please repeat the requets in about 2 months and 3 weeks. Good Luck.

Miscellaneous requests

User Tchoř@cs.wiktionary

During the vote on Milda's desysop on Czech Wiktionary, I was asked by several users for voluntary reconfirmation. Because of the atmosphere of suspicion at that time (e.g. possible sockpuppeting; admins and bureaucrats being wildly accused of being biased) and rules on adminship still only in preparation, I have agreed with the community on two step reconfirmation (first reconfirmation of sysop rights, then in case of success reconfirmation of bureaucrat rights) with the voting evaluation being done by the stewards as an independent authority. The sysop rights voting has been evaluated, now the bureaucrat rights voting has ended, so I ask you if you could evaluate linked reconfirmation. Thanks in advance.--Tchoř (talk) 20:36, 29 August 2015 (UTC)[]

  •   Comment All the users who supported the confirmation show no sign of being canvassed. One user who voted against it does (given the amount of support, not sure it actually matters anyway). Elfix 06:38, 30 August 2015 (UTC)[]
  • As things stand now, Tchoř has 75% of support, which is the percentage used at most wikis to perform rights promotions. I'd say confirmed. —MarcoAurelio 16:26, 30 August 2015 (UTC)[]
  • I agree that Tchor should be confirmed. The level of support is more than what most projects expect their administrators to maintain. Ajraddatz (talk) 03:51, 1 September 2015 (UTC)[]
  • I concur as well -- Avi (talk) 05:38, 1 September 2015 (UTC)[]
  Confirmed reconfirmed. The level of support of 75% is close to 80%, which is often required for promotion to a functionary status (for stewards, for instance). So, taking into account into account all controversy, the level of support has remained remarkably high and is sufficient for reconfirmation. Ruslik (talk) 17:07, 1 September 2015 (UTC)[]

Motoko C. K.@kowiki

User needs Accountcreator for his/her GLAM activity. Temporary rights until September 20. Rejected on local because local sysop lacks technical permission to grant/revoke accountcreator. Please give him/her accountcreator and revoke it by September 20.

Thank you. — regards, Revi 17:47, 10 September 2015 (UTC)[]

Done. On a side note, wouldn't it look better to the user to say "I will make a request on Meta that this gets done, as I cannot do it locally" instead of "not done, because it's not possible locally"? --MF-W 19:33, 10 September 2015 (UTC)[]

Import permission DerFussi@vi.wikivoyage

I am importer (including XML-import) on de/wikivoyage already and yould like to setup some of our features on vi. So i would like to apply for the import permission:

  • XML import (I have quite a lot of modules and templates)
  • transwiki import - sources: Wikipedia/vi for importing (articles on request) and Wikivoyage/de and Wikivoyage/en (for importing articles or other templates)

I am aware that there is a not big community, only one active member, a Vietnamese that fortunately speaks German as well. He helps with the features and translations. -- DerFussi 05:11, 17 September 2015 (UTC)[]

Do you think you'll need it permanently? --MF-W 20:04, 18 September 2015 (UTC)[]
Not easy to predict. Of course, there are many uploads at the beginning. But on voy/de we still use both imports and will have to use in the future ase well. Not often, but we use it. -- DerFussi 04:30, 23 September 2015 (UTC)[]
  Granted for 6 months to expire on 2016-03-24. 6 months should give you enough time :). Let us know if you need less/more time with it. Thanks, Ajraddatz (talk) 07:08, 24 September 2015 (UTC)[]

Change of status as administrator (temp to permanent): StevenJ81@lad.wikipedia

My administrator status was made permanent at ladwiki, so I should not be de-sysoped on October 12 (when my grant of temporary right would have ended). Thank you. StevenJ81 (talk) 20:20, 24 September 2015 (UTC)[]

I am not sure that three votes are sufficient for the permanent. Ruslik (talk) 20:35, 25 September 2015 (UTC)[]
