Administrator access

OlegCinema@ruwikiquote

6 people supported, one against. The support level is 85% Bureaucrats in the community is inactive, so I write here. At the moment I am temporarily managing two projects, closer in ruwikipedia. --OlegCinema (talk) 23:30, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

Request page created 2018-06-03.   On hold until 2018-06-10. — regards, Revi 13:00, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
@-revi: five votes in favor is enough to get a permanent flag? OlegCinema (talk) 05:17, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
I do not think so, but that's up to deciding steward. (That could be me, or someone else if I forget it.) — regards, Revi 09:02, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
@-revi: In fact, active administrators are needed there, and I think 6 votes shows that the community needs an active and permanent administrator. For example, only today the project went a whole wave of vandalism (please check, by the way), and there are no active administrators and no one can do anything about it. --OlegCinema (talk) 11:06, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

please close this discussion by not done. I am not interested to open any discussion on home wikivoyage right now. Because the community isn't enough active to discuss on a issue. And already we get three temporary sysop. ☺. Thank you. Ferdous • 04:32, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

Ninjastrikers@mywiki

Hello! May I request Bureaucrat access for myself on mywiki. Regards, NinjaStrikers «» 04:30, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

No official rule about it, but I think it's worth having multiple stewards look at a request for a first bureaucrat. There are only four local admins and ~120 users with edits in the last month, of which only about 10-20 are very active. That said, there is at least 8 supporting votes from legitimate contributors and the wiki does have multiple permanent admins, so I would be inclined to grant the permissions. There's consensus and enough of a community to monitor the actions. – Ajraddatz (talk) 05:17, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
It can stay open a bit longer. Ruslik (talk) 20:44, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
  Comment As Burmese Wikipedia summary in May show 21 active editors (7 Very Active Editors) with 3 new editors and 9 new articles per day. There's 4 sysops (One of them inactive since 10 months), probably I agreed with Ajraddatz --Alaa :)..! 04:35, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

Miscellaneous requests

Global account

Status:    Not done

Hello guys!

Since we have SUL, I thought that accounts were automatically unified through the whole Wikimedia farm. I just saw that our legal advisor, User:Mister pod, created his account/user page on Meta but it is not reflecting on other wikis, except for Wikimedia Canada, WMCA:User:Mister pod.

Is it possible to at least have his page reflected at least on wp.fr and wp.en?

Thank you in advance for the answer,

Benoit Rochon (talk) 15:22, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

@Benoit Rochon: The reason why they're not reflecting is he never visited these wikipedias while he's logged in. The reverse is the case, WMCA is reflecting the page because he visited the wiki and even made edits. Technically, now he don't have account on en-wiki nor on fr-wiki, although the account is now reserved for him globally. In short, the only thing he needs to do is to visit these wikipedias while logged in; that will automatically create local account for him and display the global userpage from here Meta. –Ammarpad (talk) 17:37, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
