Bonjour à tous, j'aimerais obtenir les statuts d'administrateur et de bureaucrate à la suite du vote communautaire, j'estime le résultat légitime malgré le faible nombre d'avis, il y a très peu de contributeurs actif sur ce projet actuellement et j'aurais sans doute dû mettre des messages sur ceux qui sont toujours là mais j'ai pas voulu faire du démarchage, j'ai déjà eu par le passé le statut d'administrateur voici mon journal d'opération sur Wikinews j'ai mis plusieurs messages au bureaucrate Grondin sans avoir eu de réponse. Cordialement. FrankyLeRoutier (talk) 01:08, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

Revenant de vacances, j'ai pu examiner la candidature. Au regard de la prise de décision concernant l'élection des administrateurs et des bureaucrates, aucune des conditions n'a été remplie. J'ai répondu sur la page de candidature.-- Bertrand GRONDIN   → (Talk) 15:23, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
Merci beauccoup, donc dossier clos. Amicalement. FrankyLeRoutier (talk) 21:39, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
Not done. Local bureaucrat is active and can handle this. Matiia (talk) 04:47, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

Mass request@zhwikiversity

Mass zhwikiversity requests were marked on hold. — regards, Revi 07:54, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
I know that communities are generally self-managed. But zhwikiversity is a brand-new project, just spun off from Beta, and I seriously question whether that many sysops are really necessary. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:38, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Based on the discussion with other stewards (this was the reason I put it on hold), I am declining this mass request for A/IA. We are in favor of the (miraculous) growth of the wikis, but this wiki is barely two weeks past the wiki's creation, and our assessment is that zhwikiversity is not yet at the stage where you need 29 admins. I ask that zhwikiversity choose the most trusted candidate, 2-4 preferably, but no more than 5. The same applies to int-admin. — regards, Revi 14:01, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
  • @-revi:can we at least have 10. Many of the candidates have other wiki sysop/patroller duties/school work (these are the strongest candidates). We need every manpower.--Cohaf (talk) 17:51, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
  • @-revi:@StevenJ81:I agree with Cohaf's opinion that we need at least 10 admins. What's worse, 10 may be not enough, because most of candidates are still busy students now. When they start a new term, they may become much more inactive. On the contrary, enthusiastic users mightn't mind whether there were active admins or not, and this must cause a large amount of work for only 5 admins. Mass admins or backlog? If you do want to limit the number, I suggest restart the discussion after 3 months; but before that, can we get the authority to finish early tasks.--Blissghost (talk) 19:09, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
    • Come on. Where do all these users suddenly come from? Did 100 vandals appear suddenly as well? --MF-W 19:58, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
      • I've got to admit: One thing made me nervous about recommending this project for approval: Enormous numbers of edits at Beta had been made by anonymous users. So it's entirely possible that all of these folks are the "anonymous users" from Beta.
That having been said, let me share some numbers here: Currently, v:zh:Special:ActiveUsers gives a list of about 80 users, of whom about 30 had more than 10 actions. (And you're one of them, MF-W.) The most users that the zh test at Beta ever had in any given recent month was about 16, including "Anonymous".
Are any stewards or GS fluent enough in Chinese to look this over? Otherwise, I'm inclined to pick the three people from among the applicants above who were most active while this test was still at Beta and flag them for no longer than 1–3 months—none as IA, and none before 27 August. StevenJ81 (talk) 21:28, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
@StevenJ81: As I can see, no steward know any Chinese. Maybe you may consider picking the first 10 (if possible, or at least first 5) users to be zh.wikiversity sysops. Sæn 00:29, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
Maybe we can flag those (max 5, again) who were active during betawikiversity, but I'm not convinced that the zhwikiversity is different from any other new wikis that this unprecedented 29 admins are really justified. — regards, Revi 02:01, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
Agree. One more number: Not counting the big multilingual wikis like Commons, Meta and Wikidata, there are something like 25 projects in the entire WMF world with that many sysops. StevenJ81 (talk) 03:20, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
@-revi: I disagree with the max. no. of 5: comparing with other wikis, ratio of sysops to other users are commonly 1:10, and you now fixed the no. of sysops to 5, which means the ratio is now 1:16, which means the no. of sysops in the Wikiversity is not sufficient. I strongly recommend to increase the no. of sysops to 8 to 10, to fulfill the ratio of 1:10. Sæn 04:07, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, I'm not willing to negotiate, and actually if other steward closed this, you'd have to choose 1 or 2 among them. — regards, Revi 04:11, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
(withdrawn speech) Sæn 13:10, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
@Sanmosa:  Strong oppose: Currently no consensus have been made over the community. I think Samosa's behavior is inappropriate and confusing.--Panzer VI-II (talk) 04:53, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
(withdrawn speech) Sæn 13:10, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
It's obvious that only a few users have joined the discussion while different opinions exist. Having not joined the discussions (for I'm busy these days) doesn't mean that I haven't viewed the pages on the zh-Wikiversity.--Panzer VI-II (talk) 05:03, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
(withdrawn speech) Sæn 13:10, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
Provided you have community consensus for 5 or less (int)admins, I can flag them subject to usual conventions. — regards, Revi 06:59, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
  • @-revi and StevenJ81:we got to know about the project based on the notice on the centralized discussion noticeboard on zhwiki and will like to lend a hand. I cannot speak for others but to label us as anon, I did not anon edit before, am a patroler at zhwiki, etc. Since zhuniversity is so prominently, even the recent changes at zhwiki included a link to zhuni, vandals , lta can follow the same and appear. I will hope for 10 or not least 8. --Cohaf (talk) 07:29, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
    • @Cohaf: Thank you for that explanation. I was simply speculating about where all of you might have come from, and whether or not any of you ever contributed to the zhwikiversity while it was still at Beta Wikiversity. No insult was intended, by any means. But the fact that a big announcement was made at zhwiki explains a lot.
@Sanmosa: Ordinarily, consensus is the most important piece of this. But given that the wiki and community are brand new, I think you are actually correct that steward trust is going to be a component of the decision at this stage of the game. (Put another way, is there a real, functioning community yet whose consensus we can accurately measure?) Given that, then ...
@-revi: You're the steward, not me. But let me suggest the following four individuals as representing a reasonable place to start for now:
  • User:Stang. This user is one of the five users who were very active on the zhwikiversity test project at Beta from the beginning of 2018 until the project was spun off. This user, in fact, is the only applicant who is a sysop (custodian) on Beta Wikiversity; the user is also a 'crat and sysop on zhwiki. So this user knows how to use mops.
  • User:夢蝶葬花. (In case I miscopied, that's the first person on the list above.) This user is also one of the five users who were regularly active at Beta. This user is sysop and IA on zhwikivoyage.
The other three of the five active users from Beta have not applied so far. Among everyone else who has applied, several have light rights like patroller and rollbacker on some zh projects, and a couple made a handful of edits at Beta. But only two others have sysop experience somewhere:
  • User:Xiplus. This user is sysop and IA on zhwiki, and sysop on zhwiktionary.
  • User:Kanashimi. This user is sysop on zhwikinews and on test.wikipedia.
So unless the community has a real problem with any of these four, that's probably where I'd start, were it my decision to make. (All applied for sysop; all but Stang also applied for IA.) StevenJ81 (talk) 16:04, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
  • @StevenJ81:please hold for community discussion. For information, the patroller flag on zhwiki is autopatrol, patrol, file mover as well as page mover combined into one. For roll backer it's page mover, rollback as well as abuse filter private. Each application will undergo a mini RFA where questions are asked as well as votes tallied, community play a role. it's not the enwiki PERM where no community input is allowed. These are not minor rights but important rights and we are listed on the list of administrative personal online chart at zhwiki. I will personally be contended with a curator flag but then this must be on hold. Early community consensus does not tally with your recommendations totally although Xiplus is definitely in. If need be, can grant him the flag.--Cohaf (talk) 16:14, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
No worries, I'm not going to grant the permissions overnight, and I trust other steward not to do so. — regards, Revi 16:18, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
In any event, it's -revi's decision to make, not mine. I was providing information. (Side note: the one applicant I would suggest is not eligible, even if the community supports, is User:UserZx. That user has a grand total of 156 edits across all projects. So unless there is editing history under a different name somewhere, in general that user would be considered too inexperienced.) StevenJ81 (talk) 16:23, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
  • @Cohaf: Mea maxima culpa. No rant necessary. I'm convinced that the trust level involved with those two rights sets on zhwiki is just about the same, if not exactly the same, as RfA. There's still the issue of experience with the toolkit itself. After all, patrollers and rollbackers cannot delete pages, block users, revision-delete, and other such things. In that sense, even on zhwiki, patrollers and rollbackers do not have experience with the full toolbox.
Look, ultimately, the decision here is -revi's, and the community's, not mine. But if my opinion is worth anything, I need to point out that Stang and 夢蝶葬花 worked hard to get zhwikiversity to the point where it could be approved and spun off. In my opinion—and it's only my opinion, of course—your community is not established and stable enough to decide that they don't deserve a role. Remember: you would not have a zhwikiversity now if it weren't for them. StevenJ81 (talk) 21:23, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
  • (edit conflicted)@StevenJ81:I fully support them and was in the process of removing the rant with this edit summary "removed rant as it's a little too much retrospectively and does not help in discussion, sorry for inconveniences caused" pardon me for carrying local issues here and sorry for the one additional nonsense ping you have to bear. I collapsed my discussion to prevent this being too long (I would like it removed but can't since it is replied to).To be crystal clear, I'm fully in support for Stang/夢蝶葬花, the former I interacted very frequently in CAT:CSD and AFD as well as numerous admin requests and is one of the zhwiki admins I am closest to and I enjoyed seeking help from him. As the latter, we participated in AFD, policy making together and there is no one ounce of doubt they can be a good sysop. In fact, the community is trying to nominate 夢蝶葬花 also. The rest of the proposed nominees are, for clarity is -Zest/WQL. (i.e. 4 additional sysops proposed now are 夢蝶葬花,Xiplus,WQL,-Zest).And to be clearer, the level of trust for rollbackers/patrollers is much lowerthan RFA, I'm just comparing the application process vis-a-vis other project, in fact, no RFA succeeded for a year already--Cohaf (talk) 21:28, 16 August 2018 (UTC)


I would like to request to be an admin at the Chi-Chewa Wikipedia to fix basic things, translate the main page of the site and also import stuff. I posted on our local discussion but there's hardly anyone active there. If you check the last edits you see that its mostly me making edits at the moment am very active on simple and english and i really want to help this grow as well.

DARIO SEVERI@pt.wikinews

Hi, please could you assign permanent adminship as per consensus in the vote? This is the third time that I request. I am a permanent global sysop with over 100,000 editions [1] distributed in four hundred projects of the Wikimedia Foundation. I am also a sysop on Wikivoyage (pt) and Wikipedia (pt). In addition to the normal editions as editor I have more than 25,000 administrative editions as sysop in two hundreds of projects. Thank you. DARIO SEVERI (talk) 05:09, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

Done. NB that I didn't give you permanent adminship because of your numerous qualities, but because numerous users who regularly seem to contribute to pt.n supported your request. --MF-W 19:36, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

  • Both candidates were approved by the community by 4/0/0.
  • Both recently completed three-month admin terms. However, I believe they can be granted one-year terms this round, for the following reasons:
    • Chabi has experience as a sysop not only here but also on jamwiki and (using the account Katxis) on ladwiki. He was test-sysop on Incubator for both jamwiki and lfnwiki. He knows how to use the tools.
    • Cgboeree has less sysop experience. But he is literally the world's leading expert on this language (having created it). The community respects his opinions and decisions. Moreover, FWIW (and I've looked), I see no evidence whatsoever that lfnwiki (or any other project here) reports on him in any other than a neutral POV. So I see no harm to the project, and plenty of benefit, to allowing him the stability of a full-year term. StevenJ81 (talk) 22:18, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
      •   Granted for 1 year to expire on 2019-08-30. I daresay I ignored your comments about why these users can be given one-year terms, as stewards should not grant shorter or longer terms depending on what they think of the candidates' merits, but based on whether or not the participation in the RFAs justifies permanent adminship. --MF-W 22:41, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

Klein Muçi@sqwikiquote

I've been a member of Wikipedia sq for more than 5 years and lately I've been participating in other projects too, like Wikidata and Meta-Wiki. Unfortunately, a lot of our communities in Albanian aren't exactly thriving with activity. Wikiquotes sq hasn't had new articles since many months ago (the only new one is the one I created when I first joined it) and all its bureaucrats have been removed from their position a long time ago because of their inactivity for more than two years.

Yes, I would like to edit CSS/JS on ja.wikiversity, as well as I did on ja.wiktionary and ja.wikibooks. Recently I feel that we need several input-aiding gadgets and related styles for some kind of educational materials, such as for math equations. I speak JS (of versions defined as ES5.1 -- ES2017 only) and CSS (up to level 3).
Of course such a small wiki as ours need not edit CSS/JS pages very often. However, as the meta page “Interface administrators” writes, we discussed that we should have at least two interface-admins. Thank you. --Kanjy (talk) 11:14, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

Local bureaucrats refused to remove flag from my account at ruwiki. Please, just do it. Vlsergey (talk) 06:25, 10 August 2018 (UTC)

Please hold this request on 3 days, this a emotions. Thanks. // Просьба отложить решение на 3 дня, это на эмоциях на фоне конфликта в рувики. Спасибо. [2] -- dima_st_bk 06:38, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
Being a member of Arbitration Committee (ru:Википедия:Арбитражный комитет), I would like to ask for putting this particular request on hold, as well as any similar requests coming from ruwiki within next a couple of weeks. The thing is there is an active conflict between some sysops, engineers and bureaucrats in ruwiki, which is related to the new technical flag (interface-admin) to be given to a couple of non-technical sysops, and which results into emotional reactions. A couple of active editors already requested to remove their flags in ruwiki, and local bureaucrats indeed refused to do that. Vlsergey is only one of them, and the only one who decided to get in touch with Stewards. But just so you know the order of magnitude, 5 out of 10 existing engineers in ruwiki requested the flags to be removed, so you can only imagine what would happen to the technical side of ruwiki if all of these requests were executed. I believe we will address the issues with the interface-admin flag within next 2 weeks, have the community to approve the related rules and policies, and after that engineers and sysops will be able to make well thought-out decisions. --Good Will Hunting (talk) 06:44, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
6 of 10, and 2 more on hold. --Serhio Magpie (talk) 06:49, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
  Not done there's 5 bureaucrats, so it should be handled locally --Alaa :)..! 07:20, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
Additional explanation: Stewards do not perform actions on wikis with ability to self-manage, unless there is emergency ("crat says no" is not an emergency) or all the crats are gone for a long time (at least 6 months - 1 year). Not the case here. — regards, Revi 10:59, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
@-revi and علاء: The following is not meant to suggest that you act contrary to an explicit request from ruwiki's ArbCom at all. But if @Good Will Hunting had not appeared, I do not see where policy would allow anybody to force a user to hold rights that s/he does not want to keep.
We have a 24-hour hold rule here for resignations of rights, and for good reason. But if someone wishes to resign rights on a self-managing wiki, and bureaucrats fail to act within (3 days?)(7 days?)(surely something longer than 24 hours), then in my opinion stewards actually should act. This is not like most other situations where we normally don't want stewards to act when 'crats can. This is a case of a user not being permitted to voluntarily give up rights. And as long as we're satisfied there has been a cooling off period, we should facilitate that. StevenJ81 (talk) 21:22, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
Policy(+"If there are any doubts as to whether or not an action should be performed, stewards should not act unless it is an emergency or there are no active local users to do it.") is that we do not intervene on the projects with active crats, so it's unactionable. — regards, Revi 01:00, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Question is "What is an active local crat?" I'd argue that if crats are missing from a project for a week (and, let's just say, haven't left a return date on-wiki), that constitutes "no active local users to do it" for this purpose. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:24, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
I agree and have said so already several times in this section, although mostly with regard to sysop resignations from wikis where bureaucrats can remove sysops. I find it ridiculous to refer resigning sysops to such a local bureaucrat, no matter whether active or not. A resignation by itself cannot be controversial (it may very well be "under a cloud", as enwiki likes to say, but it is by definition requested by the affected user), so there is no harm if a steward executes it. On the contrary, a user who really wants to get rid of a usergroup (while the community is trying to convince him to stay and delays acting on the request) can simply start to act rogue to force stewards to remove him. Before going into such childish games, I'd prefer if the rights are simply removed... --MF-W 13:33, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
How comes there is no harm in getting the request executed by a steward, if both local crats and local arbitrators do explicitly confirm they are active, and do confirm they are working on addressing the issue that caused the resignation request, and the user has been active in ruwiki and has not been playing any childish games (at least before you suggested that brilliant idea)? --Good Will Hunting (talk) 06:48, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
If local users want to try to convince someone who wants to resign to change his mind, that is of course a very good thing. But if the user comes back to insist to lose his rights (which he didn't do here, to be clear), what I said applies. --MF-W 01:12, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
I would add: no one was suggesting a time period in such a situation as short as the ordinary 24 hours for routine resignation of user rights. We're talking here about a situation where (a) resignation has been requested, then (b) stewards are told that local sysops and 'crats are trying to address issues, then (c) a reasonable period has passed to allow for the possibility of both (i) getting the local issues addressed and (ii) letting the resigning user have a chance to cool down and change his/her mind; yet (d) the user still wants to resign, and the local bureaucrat refuses. That's a problem. Assuming the period for (c) is at least one week, I think a steward is entirely justified in fulfilling the user's request to resign.
I reiterate what MF-W just said: part of the discussion has been a more general discussion. In this specific case, the user did not come back to insist on resigning, and the stewards properly did not act. StevenJ81 (talk) 16:33, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
