Administrator access


Hello. I was elected administrator (since 2018, I am temporary admin in Korean Wiktionary) and interface administrator in election as per vote rule on Korean Wiktionary. Thanks. --Garam (talk) 11:01, 1 December 2019 (UTC)

  Granted for 1 year to expire on 2020-12-01. — regards, Revi 13:15, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
Wait, I requested interface adimistrator right, too. --Garam (talk) 16:19, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
Whoops, you're right. Bundled to adminship. — regards, Revi 16:37, 1 December 2019 (UTC)

I am regularly working on the digitization of books for Punjabi Wikisource. I need adminship to review some pages or especially to upload some books via local uploader. You can see discussion as well. Please give me access to the adminstrator on Punjabi Wikisource. - Satpal (CIS-A2K) (talk) 13:46, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

Hello, this is the third nomination of فيصل on arwikinews (his last both temporary adminship for 6 months and 1 year, respectively), so I don't know if you can give him permanent adminship (There's already permanent sysop there). If not, please give grant him flag for 2 years. Best --Alaa :)..! 17:00, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

Greetings, User:Sintakso was elected on 03. 12. 2019 03:14 SET, but beaurocrat User:Tchoř did not apply any action for it til now, although he edited on cs.wiktionary 7. 12. 2019, 11:07 and also was pinged. Could someone help resolve this proposal? Thank you. --Kusurija (talk) 11:47, 7 December 2019 (UTC)

  Wait Thank you for your initiative. However, please note that the local voting policy (section 26) allows to pass the vote to stewards only after it has not been evaluated by any bureaucrat in at least 10 days. --Sintakso (talk) 12:32, 7 December 2019 (UTC)

Please remove my sysop flag on nl.wikipedia. Due to time constraints and other interests, I haven't contributed much to the project lately and rarely use my sysop permissions. Xxmarijnw (talk) 10:49, 1 December 2019 (UTC)

Only sysop/bureaucrat flag in eswikivoyage can be removed by steward. Other rights should be handled by local administrators.--GZWDer (talk) 01:56, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
Partially done. Per Matiia. Sysop and Bureaucrat status from es.wikivoyage were removed per your request. Other permissions to be handled by local administrators (autopatrolled, rollbacker, etc.). Regards. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:48, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

Edgar has had admin removed from his enwiki account per Arbcom decision. Concern has arised about his admin permissions at Commons; a discussion was opened at Commons:AN and the user has agreed to have his rights removed without drama. ~riley (talk) 06:54, 6 December 2019 (UTC)

Now blocked on Commons by Krd ~riley (talk) 07:23, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
I have cublocked the user at Commons, see c:Commons:Requests for checkuser/Case/Edgar181. While desysop formally requires community consensus, I think the ongoing abuse over years on two large wikis requires a global lock. --Krd 07:24, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
I don't think this is how global locks should be used (usually global locks are used for socks, vandalism/spam-only users and any users potentially spreading issues in multiple wikis after local blocks; main accounts should not be locked unless they are ongoing disruptive xwiki that can not be handled by local blocks). A global ban may be considered if new issue occurs (but not now).--GZWDer (talk) 10:22, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
Had it been more unambiguous resignation I think it's pretty fine to act on (not that I will — Commons is one of my 'homewiki') I am honestly not sure if that is a resignation or just 'eeek screw it, do whatever you want' situation. — regards, Revi 09:22, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
