Hello @سمير تامر: I'm waiting the action from another steward, because I'm a sysop in arwikinews so I can't handle this request --Alaa :)..! 08:36, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
  Granted for 1 year to expire on 2019-09-14. The wiki is in my opinion too small to grant permanent access at this time. To prolong your (interface) adminship, please start another election a few days before your temporary access expires, and after a week post your request again to this page. Thanks. -- Trijnsteltalk 12:47, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Trijnstel for granting me the adminship. Arabic Wikinews is now much better than the past years, and I guess we have at least one permanent admin. But anyway I'll try to make Arabic Wikinews better than ever. Thanks again. --سمير تامر (talk) 14:32, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Ananth subray@kn.wikisource

Currently, we don't have admins on Kannada Wikisource. Which is becoming a problem for all the community members to work on this projects. Because there is a need for many templates to be imported and delete some of the troubling pages. As many new editors are coming, we have a need of protection for few pages to avoid the vandalism. As I am a Trusted, active user with a vast technical knowledge community has selected me to be a sysop. Hence I request you to give the rights to do the needful.

Hello, Currently Santali Wikipedia has no Admin, I was the admin on temporary basis to fix some things for the newly made Santali Wikipedia.

Raju Babu@bh.wikipedia

At present there are two permanent admins on bh.wikipedia, i.e. User:Eukesh ji, and me (SM7). Because Eukesh has not been active for a long time, we need a helping hand in admin related works. Raju Babu has previously been admin (even before myself) twice (last temporary duration for a whole year) and is a trusted user. As we are a very small community please don't expect a lot of votes. Kindly grant him permanent sysop rights. Thanks. --SM7--talk-- 20:01, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Is there any issue or concern regarding this request? --SM7--talk-- 13:50, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
I can only grant for 1 year. Ruslik (talk) 20:38, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
Ruslik Ji, Last time he was granted with 1 year duration, but could not continue after expiration. That's why we were looking forward for permanent duration this time. Anyway, if only 1 year's duration is possible than that too will do. Thanks in advance. --SM7--talk-- 10:46, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Interface administrator access

Wargo@pl.wikivoyage

Trusted, active user with a vast technical knowledge (interface-admin on plwiki and pl.wikinews, mediawikiwiki admin). So, despite the small number of voters (project is basically dead), please grant these rights permamently, or for at least a couple of years. Granting these rights for just a couple of months is utterly pointless, because you may not even use them once. Someone with the ability (and knowledge) to edit sitewide css and js is always needed, even if it's just in case. FYI: @Wargo:. tufor (talk) 18:16, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Wouldn't the same argument apply to "normal" admins? --MF-W 22:43, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
I think it would. Now, as we have this question answered, can I have one of the stewards to honor my request? I'd really really appreciate it. Truly yours, tufor (talk) 15:14, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

I want to see a clean discussion for each candidate. Ruslik (talk) 20:10, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
Dear Ruslik there is consensus to keep this permissions for 3 out of 11 sysops. Those 3, including myself are one with technical skills needed to work with JavaScript and CSS. Absolutely everyone involved in discussion approved candidacy of Emptyfear and ԱշոտՏՆՂ, and with my candidacy there was one wikipedian who opposed because of my low activity. So there is absolute consensus for the first 2 request from hy@wp and absolute majority approval for my candidacy.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but there was no prior requirements to urgently develop new policies and have new voting for existing sysops for this role so your requirement comes as a surprise. Trying to meet your requirement would take about 2 moths for us (week or two to draft it,at least a month for discussion, and voting would take 2 more weeks). Currently Armenian Wikipedia is left without anyone onboard, able to modify it's JS/CSS. If we try to fullfill your wish for separate voting we won't have it for another 2 months. At same time there's consensus which outweights voting anyway.
If you still have doubts about this I would suggest to make checks through trusted members of Armenian projects and/or I would give temporar permissions till the end of the year, so we can develop new policies and have a voting, without the rush this situation creates. --Xelgen (talk) 18:52, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Take Notice - As you see in the above example, the fact that I am unable to edit the MediaWici:Vector.css template on our very own cywiki, on which I'm an Admin and Beurocrats, means that this error continues to appear on around 20,000 Wikipedia articles!!! I've given an example above. Please authorise immediately! I shall raise this issue elsewhere, as Admins / Beurocrats from xx-wiki should be able to edit ALL pages on that wiki.

@Llywelyn2000: Note that I removed the rights bot, account creator and confirmed user. While you might be able to add all rights, it doesn't mean you are allowed to do so in all cases. You should not give bot access to a regular account, and account creator/confirmed user is redundant with your admin rights. Please be a bit more careful, thank you.

The problem is that your adminship expired more than two years ago but was not removed. I have not still decided what to do. Ruslik (talk) 20:36, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
Hi @Ruslik0:, I guess, that was due to some unintentional mistake from the part of the stewards, I also completely forgot from my side that I was granted temporary adminship, as I was not removed after 6 months. But the point is, community didn't object at all before and still is not objecting against continuing my adminship and granting the interface editor rights to me, that denotes they trust me. I would also like to let you know, that I am not hungry of these rights, as you can find in the archives, that I have resigned my admin rights from Bengali Wikipedia from my own. The interface-admin right is extremely necessary for small wiki projects like Bengali Wikisource, as all our maintenance works and feature enhancements have been stopped for last few weeks after the js/css editing rights have been stripped from the admins. My request is to take this into consideration and take decision as soon as possible. Thanks, -- Bodhisattwa (talk) 22:17, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

علاء@ar.wikinews

This RfA opened since 6 September 2018, and there's 8 supports (4 more than 100 edits -1 user with more than 5000 edits-). Per Wikinews Statistics, arwikinews is the 11th largest edition of Wikinews, with more than 7,330 content pages, more than 35 active users, 4 sysops, 17 bots, 32 rollbackers --Alaa :)..! 09:01, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

I don't know... there are four sysops, yes, but three of them have temporary admin rights at the moment. I feel this wiki is too small for local bureaucrats. Trijnsteltalk 12:49, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
@Trijnstel: we (arwikinews community) discussed about that, and we found that we need a local bureaucrat to deal with bots + admin interface issues, also some users mentioned that cswikinews (12th largest edition of Wikinews) and cawikinews (13th largest edition of Wikinews) have an active local bureaucrat. Also, "almost" all first 10 editions of Wikinews have at least one local bureaucrat. Finally, we opened this request based on arwikinews community opinions --Alaa :)..! 13:01, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Leaderboard@enwikibooks

As a sysop, I already have the standard import interface (transwiki import) where I can import from other en wikis. However, I need the importupload permission as well. This is because I often need to import from non-English projects (such as fr.wikibooks, for which the standard import option isn't available), and occasionally handle complex import cases for which the standard import facility does not suffice. Please let me know if this isn't possible. Thanks. Leaderboard (talk) 13:51, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

Have you considered adding projects such as frwikibooks to your wiki's import sources (requires a short community discussion + request at phabricator)? In any case, you will need to provide a link to a community discussion prior to being granted any further user rights by stewards. Kind regards, --Vogone (talk) 14:00, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
