I believe that failures are an integral part of one's life (especially mine), and hence list down my (obviously good faith) attempts, especially failures, at getting advanced permissions across Wikimedia projects.
N.B: This is NOT an endorsement at hat-collecting. I mention this primarily for transparency reasons - when I apply for advanced permissions, I think it's the right of the community to consider past issues with me.
|en.wikibooks (admin)||en.wikibooks (CheckUser)||accused of hat-collecting amongst others|
|MediaWiki (admin)||en.wikinews (admin)||requested it for spam-catching purpose which the community did not feel was enough of a reason|
|Meta-Wiki (admin)||accused of mishandling filters, lack of collaboration and concerns about experience (?)|
