Administrator access

Seth R@bn.wikibooks

I have 600+ edits. I have experience in Bengali Wikipedia.I Requesting for temporary administrator right for 6 months in Bangla Wikibooks. Sethtalk 02:13, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

On hold till 5 December. --Stryn (talk) 08:06, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
@Stryn already 7 days passed,, in discussion 4 supportss and 2 opposes but I am really hope for this right. If you check then I am most active user in this project. Last 30 days I have made more than 2 months. I have made more than 820 edits and 5000 global edits. I want make this community more strong. This right will inspires me to more work. So please do it. Sethtalk 10:06, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
  Not done. Unfortunately, per the local policy, to get an adminship, you need at least 75% of support. Seems like there's nothing wrong, just that you should be more active before asking the rights. So try to stay a bit more active on the project and then if you want, ask the rights again. Best regards, --Stryn (talk) 10:18, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

Booklety@el.wikibooks

Greek Wikibooks need and more Administrators and robots. There are such eager users, there are useful users who deserved the adminship. Besides Wikibooks never had bureaucrats.--Booklety (talk) 18:02, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

We don't grant bureaucrat rights unless there is an active community; sysop and bot rights can thereby be monitored and granted by us. Savhñ 12:27, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Tulsi Bhagat@ne.wikipedia

  • Just for the record: The WMF has reviewed this users request for CU and at this point determined he is not eligible to hold the position. Because of that he will not be added to the official Noticeboard. Tulsi Bhagat if you have further questions you will be receiving an email from me and can feel free to respond to that. Jalexander--WMF 21:08, 19 December 2016 (UTC)
    • Hi Jalexander, no more any further question. Very thanks to wmf, you and all the users participating here in this request. :-) — TBhagat (talk) 06:03, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

I want to add something that hasn't been considered in this whole discussion, but which is essential here. The CU rights couldn't have been assigned in this case anyway. If this election would have been a normal one and if the user would have been elected by hundreds of users of the Nepali Wikipedia and if this user would have been added to the noticeboard and signed the agreement, then it would still have been a violation of the CU policy to assign just the CU rights to this user (or to any other user of the wiki) in this wiki. The CU policy is very clear, see CheckUser policy#Appointing local Checkusers:

  • "On any wiki, there must be at least two users with CheckUser status, or none at all. This is so that they can mutually control and confirm their actions. In the case where only one CheckUser is left on a wiki (when the only other one retires, or is removed), the community must appoint a new CheckUser immediately (so that the number of CheckUsers is at least two)."

How can it be that there is such a long discussion here about assigning these CU rights or not, but noone in the discussion sees the fact that in this case there is no possibility at all to assign these rights now? I'm wondering. See this list of local checkusers. There doesn't exist one at all in this wiki now. There also doesn't exist any local oversight there. So, the community has to elect at least 2 checkusers (or 2 oversights), if they want some. If they have tried to elect a checkuser some times before and there hasn't been enough users and support, then I suppose that there also will not be enough users and support to elect 2 checkusers in the future. The same is the case for local oversights. If in the future another elected user in that wiki will sign the agreement and will be added to the noticeboard, then the community will have to elect another checkuser/oversight, before they both can get CU/OS rights. Otherwise, there would be no possibility for anyone to control the one elected CU/OS, and that would violate the policy. Please take that into account in future cases, if in this wiki or in another wiki without local CU/OS. Thanks. And as you can see in this list, there doesn't exist a wiki with only one checkuser. I hope that the list is correct. --Bjarlin (talk) 23:44, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

Steward_requests/Permissions/2016-12#Biplab_Anand.40ne.wikipedia. There was a second user elected Bjarlin. We're not that negligent. —MarcoAurelio 23:47, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for the link, I have been wondering very much here indeed. But as the discussion says, the other elected user got the CU rights temporarily (as the only CU there), so I'm not so sure about your last sentence. :-) Anyway, it's good that it has been reverted, so let's forget it. I had lost a bit of trust in the procedure here in the last minutes, as I read the discussion above, and here has been no link to the other request at all which is in the archive now. So thanks. --Bjarlin (talk) 23:59, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
Another question: Is there a possibility to add a section "Elected users without CheckUser access" (or something like that) at CheckUser policy with the name of Biplab Anand and with a link to the request in the archive? In case that community will be able to elect another CU in the future, it could be easier. What is the procedure for such a case or for the case that only one is left and looses the rights because of that? --Bjarlin (talk) 00:26, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
Those cases are generally the responsibility of the community to track. In this case, though, the other request was also declined for specific reasons. – Ajraddatz (talk) 01:02, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
Ok, then they shall do it. I can't find any "specific reason" in the archived discussion. It has been declined because of being the only CU in case of promoting. He signed the agreement and is identified. "Not done se below" means that as the other request has not been done, he couldn't be promoted. So, if there would be another elected CU in the wiki in the future, he could be promoted as CU later. I read the discussion this way. Otherwise, nobody would have given him CU rights temporarily. And the revert has only been done, because he was the only CU then. Can you clarify, what you mean? --Bjarlin (talk) 01:13, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
Imagine, for a second, that the two requests were archived. Where would "see below" point to then? It clearly means "closed for the same reason as the request below", so look for the initial closing reason of this request. – Ajraddatz (talk) 01:28, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
First, this request hasn't been closed at the time this comment has been written, so it can't mean the closing of this request. How could it? You mean, a comment as of 16:13, 18 December 2016 could point to the closing of this request which has been at 21:08, 19 December 2016, after the last comment in the discussion as of 19:55, 19 December 2016? That isn't possible at all.
It clearly meant that the rights in this discussion still were discussed and not assigned yet (therefore the pointing to the ongoing discussion about the other request, because the archived discussion has been depending on assigning the rights here) and that they were not clear because of the age of this user. And that this means that the other user can't get rights, because then they would be the only user with those rights there. There is no hint at all that it could mean anything else, sorry. There had been 3 comments here at that time about the age of this user. The other user had already been identified, so there has been no doubt about his age. So surely the reason for closing the other discussion has been because of being the only user with CU rights in that wiki, and that means "see below". If there would have been another reason, then there would be a need for a comment about that, but there is none. It doesn't mean "for the same reason", that's clear, because the same reason would have been the user's age. This request had been open at that time, in discussion and not closed. --Bjarlin (talk) 05:30, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
Yes it was. See the hatted out part here? You can open it up and read that. Also, these questions have (at this point) nothing to do with this request, rather bureaucratic concerns with how these requests were held. Please discuss this on the talk page instead; no need to keep this open. – Ajraddatz (talk) 05:34, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
I have read it, it is not gone or "hatted out", just smaller. If you think that the whole discussion about the voters (which began after closing the other discussion) has also something to do with the other election, and that maybe both elections are dubious, then this should clearly be written down in the archived discussion, so that it's understandable for all readers and for the future. I would never have read the discussion in such a way, because the user clearly didn't get the rights because of being the only user with those rights there. This is the only thing that can be read there, as I already explained.
It surely may be now that there is also another reason, but this hasn't been written there and I wouldn't have thought about it at all. If you are sure that the other user will not get the rights, if another user will be elected there instead of this one, then please add that other reason there or write "for the same reason" with a link, so that everyone can understand it. Now it isn't clear at all. If it would be, I wouldn't have had the idea to add the only elected user on the CU policy page for transparence reasons. And as you said, that the user had also "specific reasons", I first thought about anything secret about that user which should not be written down openly (such as the banning reasons of the WMF or something like that which also are secret). Would you please clarify it also in the archived request? Thanks for this. Kind regards --Bjarlin (talk) 06:00, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

INeverCry@Commons

I suffer from Bi-Polar Disorder and Panic Disorder. I don't think that being an administrator is a good thing for me. Doing less stressful work, like category sorting and license reviews is probably a much better and healthier choice for me. I think the community at Commons knows I care and that I enjoy working on the project, but I think they would want what's best for me. I think that a removal of my sysop right at Commons is best thing for my health at this time, and going forward. I don't think I'll ask to be an admin anywhere again. There's just too much stress and conflict involved, and I can't handle it well at all. Thanks for your time. lNeverCry 18:57, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

Skalee@pl.wikipedia

Due to our policy, I hereby request removal of administrator access due to lack of edits in the main namespace during a 1 year period. Tar Lócesilion (queta) 17:13, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Does this count as an edit https://pl.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Antoni_Wery%C5%84ski&diff=prev&oldid=47800773? -- Avi (talk) 17:22, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
In my opinion, it doesn't, as one year had passed before this edit was done. Tar Lócesilion (queta) 17:31, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
By one hour and 53 minutes.  . Yes, it seems that the edit was done just to keep the privileges, but if it was done one hour and 55 minutes earlier… It's your community's project, so if you are in agreement the privileges will be removed, but personally, I'd let the 2 hours slide. Can you please confirm that your community still wants these privileges removed, please? -- Avi (talk) 17:19, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
One hour and 53 minutes? The previous edit was done at 01:10 (AM) and this one was done at 21:02, which means 9:02 PM. So it's about 20 hours later. Tar Lócesilion (queta) 10:42, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
  Done Yoiks, probably a differential due to time zone. Sorry about that. -- Avi (talk) 16:32, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
@Avraham: as for Please follow common practice and reapply. Thanks. - I didn't notice that, sorry. I'm discussing the issue with @Nedops:. He's not sure what's the right/better solution. Our policy says 1 year = 365 full days. Full day would mean that the edit you linked to does count. But it's explicitly only 365, not 365 or 366. I'm a lawyer, so when I read 1 year = 365 full days, I understand that the will of our community is to count a leap year as more than one year. Otherwise, that definition would be superfluous, and as a rule, no part of any definition is to be treated as superfluous. On the other hand, WP:UCS+WP:LOVE, but who defines common sense and love in this case? I don't want to act like a judge. Anyway, I have doubts. I might have made a mistake. Nedops and I are waiting for @Openbk:'s response. Openbk deals with the majority of cases related to the inactivity policy, but he hasn't edited for 3 weeks.

{{onhold}} @Tar Lócesilion: I've changed the status to on-hold so this doesn't get archived. Let me know what the local community decides, and if it is to retain access, we'll gladly flip the bit back. Thanks! -- Avi (talk) 22:03, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

(stalker) For what it's worth, I would encourage the project to change the rule from 1 year = 365 full days to 1 year = the same date and time the following calendar year, or something like that. I'm not sure people would ordinarily keep in mind that they really have to act by the day before their anniversary if a leap day has passed. StevenJ81 (talk) 22:18, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

There is not a valid reason for requesting a removal of sysop and bureaucrat rights. You have been blocked on eswiki due to insults, and te solution is not requesting a removal of access. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 20:56, 24 December 2016 (UTC).
My editions aren't vandalic. I added information in the article 2017 year, but this sysop has blocked me. In this project there is many users with insults, but the sysops blocker them by some days. 181.61.83.227 20:59, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
Disculpa pero tiene que haber primero un consenso de la comunidad para pedir la remoción de los permisos, ya sea por Revalidación o por inactividad. En cambio, tus razones son inválidas para solicitar la remoción de los permisos. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 21:03, 24 December 2016 (UTC).

Artomo@iowikt

I am here to report admin abuse going on on the small Ido Wiktionary (iowikt) and to request the removal of Artomo's admin rights. He is the only admin of the project and he acts like he is the boss of the project. There are no rules or policies at all on the project. This admin has blocked me for 2 weeks with the reason "me vartas diskuto pos 2 semani" ("I expect discussion after 2 weeks"). He also banned the user "TheLazyDog" because he thinks he is me. We both can't edit any pages anymore on this Wiktionary. The admin also created a new section without a signature on the general discussion page where he mentioned that "TheLazyDog" critized this Wiktionary on his own blog. I don't think an admin should ban multiple people based on blog posts of a single person outside of the project. Users should have a right to free speech. – Algentem (talk) 15:30, 25 December 2016 (UTC)

  Support TheLazyDog (talk) 16:08, 25 December 2016 (UTC)
Non-steward closure. This pettiness has to stop. This is NOT the place for a removal of permission. You need to start a discussion on wiki or address the block with the admin. MechQuester (talk) 09:57, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
@MechQuester: How am I supposed to discuss this on the wikt if I'm blocked there? The only place where I'm actually able to write is on my own talk page, but he has not started a discussion there. - Algentem (talk) 12:30, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
Of course this is the place for requesting the removal of permissions. Of course, a discussion must happen first. If it's impossible to do so on the wiki itself, an RFC here on Meta can be opened. --MF-W 17:23, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
As I blocked out these two guys I wrote in the info-box that we will discuss about the event after two weeks. I thought they will have time to calm down but it seems that two weeks is too long period of time for impatient ones. Instead they are gathering more and more anger. I opened their access in advance so the discussion may begin. --Artomo (talk) 15:12, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
@Artomo: You wrote that you would discuss it with them after 2 weeks in the reason box. That is not a valid reason. You blocked them because one of them criticized you and the project on his own personal blog. Robin van der Vliet (talk) 15:43, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
@Robin van der Vliet: Sorry, that was not the reason. The reason was that they made changes which were not correct in Ido-language although they claimed that their opinion is widely accepted. I found the blog afterwards, and I thought to collect everywhere such criticism in one place, because it seems useful to let pressure out. --Artomo (talk) 16:18, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
