Administrator access

हिंदुस्थान वासी@hi.wikipedia

Grant him Administrator flag. There is no oppose and all are in favor-Jayprakash12345 (talk) 22:08, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

As per local policy - "...आवेदन करने के 7 दिन बाद तक मतदान प्रक्रिया चलेगी, इसके पश्चात परिणाम को कोई भी प्रबन्धक मॅटा विकि पर लेकर जायेगा..." voting should continue for a period of at least 7 days. Since the nomination was accepted by the user on 31 March, Kindly put this on hold until the period is over.--SM7 --talk-- 09:13, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

::As per Above policy "कोई भी प्रबन्धक मॅटा विकि पर लेकर जायेगा" Means that any of Sysop have authority to put RfA on meta Wiki. Is this right. Please see here Ashish RfA. A normal User आर्यावर्त Putted here RfA. So as per local Policy which mention by @SM7: The nomination of Ashish is Wrong. And Second thing "Since the nomination was accepted by the user on 31 March" SM7 can you Describe that to Steward. Because I cant find that Rule which says that RfA will started when a nominated User Accept the RfA. Please Describe it Deeply. I can only Find that "आपके आवेदन करने के 7 दिन बाद तक मतदान प्रक्रिया चलेगी". And RfA started when User:राजू जांगिड़ voted in Favor. If a nominated User Don't accept RfA till 1 Year. And accept after 1 year. Then the Nomination will well in good. SM7 you See sanjeev bot RfA. Where you was went when RfA started I see there that you are on 2nd Number in Support Section. Are you Forget this local policy when Sanjeev Kumar who Hindi Wikipedia's Sysop puted RfA on meta Only after 4 Days. He was right. But I am Wrong as per local policy and your View. Well Done SM7 I salute you. You and Your Home wiki Local Policy. You thinks That I am Chinese Wikipedian. --Jayprakash12345 (talk) 21:20, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

I feels very bad from my own comments. This is my fault. Sorry International Community and other members who Hurt by my comments. --Jayprakash12345 (talk) 06:53, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
@Jayprakash12345: Please do your private discussion on your own talk pages. User:SM7 showed the right thing, if you have problem, please discuss first on hiwiki.
@Stewards, please consider this nomination. Nomination was done/accepted more than 7 days ago and there is absolute consensus in favour.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 08:40, 8 April 2017 (UTC)

Абдырашит Сатылганов@ky.wikipedia

I was a Kyrgyz administrator of Wikipedia for 4 months. I would like to continue it for another year or permanently Абдырашит Сатылганов (talk) 11:23, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

@Абдырашит Сатылганов: start a discussion on ky.wikipedia first. Stryn (talk) 13:52, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
@Абдырашит Сатылганов: why are you using socks to support yourself? Matiia (talk) 01:47, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
@Matiia: In the Kyrgyz Wikipedia there are no active participants, not even administrators ... so I used a second user ... At this point, Kyrgyz Wikipedia needs an administrator who will be protected from vandalism
Do you realize that administrators should be trusted users and not manipulate the results? You don't even need any participants in the voting and you will be granted the admin rights. Stryn (talk) 10:17, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
@Stryn: Yes, I understand, but I did not know, without voices, to succumb to the administrator, so I voted .. What are we going to do next? Say advice to me (I do not know English well if I wrote wrong, sorry) Абдырашит Сатылганов (talk) 13:05, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
I have fixed the voting page there.   On hold until April 21. Stryn (talk) 13:55, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
I am concerned here that Абдырашит Сатылганов uploaded copyrighted movie posters (examples: 1, 2, 3) without ky.wikipedia having an Exemption Doctrine Policy. An admin should know that this is not ok. --AFBorchert (talk) 17:03, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

User Smaug the Golden@fiwikiquote

Hi! There a only three admins in Finnish Wikiquote, two of them are active mostly in Finnish Wikipedia and one of them (who is also an bureaucrat) isn't active at all. I've been approved as a new admin so I'd like to get admin tools too. Smaug the Golden (talk - my contributions) 06:28, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

q:fi:User:TJ is a local bureaucrat. Please contact him talk page and email so he can flag you. If he does not reply within a week, then we can review your request, but with that low level of participation we ain't able to grant permanent adminship but temporary up to three months, which can be extended afterwards. If TJ flags you there'd be no such a restriction from our part. Thank you, —MarcoAurelio 10:03, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

@MF-Warburg: Only complication in this case is that regardless of whether his permanent bit should be removed by policy, he has been named as a limited administrator by User:Jalexander-WMF because of his membership on the WMF elections committee. That limited bit expires on 1 July. StevenJ81 (talk) 16:49, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

User samral@az.wikipedia

Hi, please desysop this user for 1 month during the block. He is unblocking himself and blocking me in answer. I blocked him for this edit where he makes personal attack on me, blames me in defending users for being my allies and etc. Samral was blocked many times before by different sysops, but was elected a sysop few months ago. I am not in conflict with him and was not before. I just shared my thoughts on proposal of user Cekli829 about desysoping of user Sefer_azeri. And in answer Samral made a personal attack on me.--Wertuose (talk) 11:28, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

P.S. As you can see from the block log first I blocked him for 1 week, but as he opened his block I changed it to 1 month, and he opened it again.--Wertuose (talk) 11:33, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
Do you still have problems with this case? I would suggest that if someone attacks you personally you will let someone else to block or warn the user. Stryn (talk) 16:05, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

NB, if you intend to remove these rights you also (at least temporary) have to remove the OS-rights of User:Hannibal too! -- Innocent bystander (talk) 17:06, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
FYI: A discussion regarding if we at all should have local OS on svwp is discussed on sv:WP:KAW. Local policy tells you need 90% support to get elected as OS. It could therefor be difficult to find any new OS today. No new OS is nominated at this moment but the discussion is still active. -- Innocent bystander (talk) 06:04, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
At this point we don't have other choices than to remove OS rights from both of those users, and if you choose to select second oversighter again, we can give them back to Hannibal then. Without local oversighters the community of Swedish Wikipedia can contact stewards, either on IRC at #wikimedia-stewards channel, sending email to User:Wikimedia Stewards, or by contacting some of stewards personally. Stryn (talk) 10:34, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
User:Julle is running an RfOS. The vote will end april 24 if it does not have to be extended a day or two. Currently he has support, but that can quickly change since you need a 90 %-support on svwp. -- Innocent bystander (talk) 19:40, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi @shanmugamp7; sysops and bureaucrats at eswiki cannot remove this flag. Regards, Banfield - Reclamos aquí 20:13, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
There seems to be some bug phab:T163167. We can't remove it from meta as well. We could add steward locally on es wiki and try removing it, but lets wait and see if this bug is getting resolved.--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 17:13, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

@NNW:   Done. I'm missing, however, a rights request for your new oversighter He3nry. Was that intentional or did you forget it? Trijnsteltalk 22:39, 29 April 2017 (UTC)
He3nry has to confirm that he is 18 or older and he has to sign the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information. I don't know when he is going to do it, so I think it is better left to him to ask for the rights. In my opinion it is senseless to ask before it is okay that he can have them and, of course, he is able to do it for himself. (Obviously Dschungelfan has got a different opinion, see above.)

Temporary permissions (expired and rejected requests only)


Hello, my sysop status is going to expire on 2016-10-07 and I'm asking for a renewal.

During the past 4 months of my adminship, I initiated and implemented some gadgets that should make "Victionarium" more attractive for users and easier to handle for editors, as there are

  • the Gadget extension itself, allowing the user to enable and disable functions and tools (created and modified the respective MediaWiki files, imported legacy scripts and style sheets from en.wiktionary)
  • an Editor to enter translations (module and template framework imported from en.wiktionary and adapted to the local needs)
  • NewLook, a gadget that adds icons to mark the principal sections of content pages, realized by style sheets (MediaWiki:Gadget-newlook.css) and scribunto modules.
  • Forms to create new pages (Paginam novam addere, modified the MediaWiki sidebar)

I'd like to continue my work to improve Victionarium. The admin flag would be a great help when MediaWiki files have to be modified, or additional tools be imported.

Since I'm the sole administrator now on Victionarium, there's nobody else to do maintenance jobs like observing SPAM and vandalism, protecting or deleting pages, if necessary. Thanks for your assistance.

The project has some activity, but the only admin on the project has not been active for more than a year and does not reply to my messages. I am already sysop on eo.wikipedia and cs.wikipedia and have a history of contributions on eo.wikisource since 2011, although it is not my main project. But the project needs maintenance (such as the "generate EPUB" link prominently placed in the main menu still dead-linking to the long discontinued Toolserver) and another contributor has invited me to request adminship, help solve those urgent issues and also make sure in the future that there is still a contactable admin on the project. My self-nomination has been out for a month now and has received support from two other users, nobody is against. The only sysop has not expressed any opinion, although I have explicitely asked him to do so, and he remains completely inactive on the project. Blahma (talk) 17:03, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Although I am not active on Esperanto sites, I know Blahma personally and he is very active Esperanto guy in the Czech community of Esperantists as well as active Wikimedian in general. I support this adminship request, Esperanto Wikisource will only gain from it.

Hi, I'm requesting sysop rights on Armenian wikisource, for duration of half a year, to work on some gadgets/Scripts/AF related issues, mainly related to Wikisource tools project. I have 7 years of sysop experience on hy.wikipedia. Xelgen (talk) 10:28, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

Miscellaneous requests

Alch Bot@pt.wikimedia

The chapter's wiki has been recreated and content from the old one needs to be imported via a modified xml dump because of username conflicts, and that's why sysop flag isn't enough. The bot will perform a series of automatic imports, while personal accounts will perform specific imports. Me and Waldir (talk · contribs) will be working on this task, and it would be useful if both our accounts would be flagged as well. Both of us are the chapter's primary tech contact. Regards,

Waldir (talk) 10:12, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
So, you want import for Alch Bot and both of your accounts, right? Would one month be enough of time? —MarcoAurelio 11:03, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
Yes, for the bot and both accounts. One month should be enough, thanks. Alchimista (talk) 11:36, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
  Done, importer group granted for 1 month to Alch Bot, Alchimista and Waldir. Regards, Linedwell [talk] 09:09, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
