Administrator access

Obaid Raza@ur.wikiquote

This is my 5th request, The first three times I was selected for 6 months and last time 1 year۔ Kindly now، give me a permanent Administrator authority.Obaid Raza (talk) 07:31, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

  Granted permanently. masti <talk> 11:18, 12 July 2017 (UTC)


As you can see under the above-mentioned links, I was elected by our small community with a relatively high number of votes, almost every vote was actually a user in our community. I am currently supporting the "leading" admin Giromin Cangiaxo, whom I contributed electing in the past. As you can see from my records, I am probably the most active user (but not the best) in our community, which has been suffering for the lack of admins and, unfortunately, users. As the Genoese language is at a risk of extinction, I am actively looking for new users and encouraging old users. I also have a second user name that I correctly never used in any election whatsoever, which I mainly use whenever I write on other Wikipedias: Luenséin. I do hope to get a one-year term this time as three months just flew and are not enough to start with new ideas. We need continuity and support. Thank you in advance.

MF-W I'm active now and need access to take actions on some pressing issues. Could you please grant access? Thanks. Omshivaprakash (talk) 18:54, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

I am afraid you should open a new discussion. If you haven't been active on since the last attempted granting of sysop rights until now, surely these pressing issues can wait some more days. --MF-W 19:02, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
@Omshivaprakash: ? Stryn (talk) 11:20, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
MF-WLooks like the privileges were not granted at all. I was wondering why I couldn't protect pages etc. I think there is an active admin around this project. If needed I will come back once again for the rights when I have enough time to contribute around technical issues. Omshivaprakash (talk) 20:10, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

CU wiki account now created and subscribed to the CU mailing list. (Apologies for the delay; I've been busy lately.) Trijnsteltalk 22:11, 5 July 2017 (UTC)


  • Request: Transferring CU rights Bináris2@huwiki → Bináris@huwiki
  • Explanation: hu:user:Bináris is my main account. Several years ago, when I got elected CU, I requested the rights for my sockpuppet, hu:user:Bináris2. See the previous entry at Steward requests/Permissions/2007-12#Bináris@huwiki. Ten years had come and gone, and new features were developed that may be used with combined admin and CU rights, and I need these tools. On the other hand, my habits have changed, I virtually never log in to Wikipedia from public computers, so the reason for which I requsted this solution, is no more valid. Using two accounts is pretty complicated. (Currently I should mass block a suckpuppeter from CU results page.) Therefore I would like to have set my CU rights back to the main account and removed from Bináris2.
  • Additional todo: granting account for Bináris to CU wiki. There is nothing to do with the mailing list, for these accounts share the same address, and I have used the list as Bináris by this time.

Thank you in advance! Bináris tell me 18:39, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

@Bináris: Apologies for being bureaucratic but could you confirm with Bináris2 this request, and can you also prove Bináris2 is your account? As for the CU wiki account I'm going to ping @Trijnstel since she can take care of that. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 20:25, 25 July 2017 (UTC)
Sure, but I thought it was proven 10 years ago at the linked discussion. :-) Please have a look at this evidence. Bináris2 (talk) 20:53, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

@MarcoAurelio: and @MBisanz:, the automatic requirement to remove sysop/adminship right is being stated here ms:Wikipedia:Penyelia/Polisi#Langsung

Apabila YBS tidak menyunting sama sekali dalam tempoh 1 tahun, YBS akan langsung diproses perlucutan statusnya tanpa melalui proses pengundian.

correct me if I'm wrong, but according to logs: Etrusko25 deleted a page in February, so 5 months ago and performed rollback of that edit in June, so (if I understand the policy correctly) is active. einsbor talk 14:04, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
You are right for the time, I counted wrong 6 months instead of 5, you are not right for the rollback which doesn't count as admin action. Please cancel my request and accept my apologize for my mistake. Thanks. --НУРшЯGIO(beware of the moose) 14:34, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

Requesting an emergency desysop for MechQuester. He is blocked on en.wikipedia indefinitely for abusing multiple accounts: [5] Also note that several of the sock accounts are globally locked. Over the last few days he has made several test.wikidata blocks including blocks of the CU who ran the check against him: [6] and other prominent enwiki admins.

I am an admin on both wikidata and test.wikidata, and am making the request here as test.wikidata has no real community or RFA process. Rschen7754 18:15, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

Ehmm? Admin actions yesterday is not enough. It's not a rule at all.. According to nlwiki's rules [13] each admin should have its rights removed if less than 250 edits were done by him or her during the last year, which is the case in Warddr's case. (Een moderator die in de laatste twaalf maanden minder dan 250 bewerkingen heeft gedaan, zal de moderatorstatus worden ontnomen. (Zie Wikipedia:Regelingen rond moderatoren/Activiteit moderatoren) Opnieuw moderator worden gaat volgens de normale procedure.) Please read the in this case important rules, and/or contact a trusted nlwiki member. MennoZeeland (talk) 21:07, 28 July 2017 (UTC)
