Hello,
Please can my sysop status be reactivated. Actually I am the only luxemburgish speaking member on this project, who can do this task as a native speaker. I can't do all corrections without sysop status. I'm sysop on lb:Wiki since four years.
Best regards Les Meloures 08:21, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

Sysop on Wiktionary lbEdit

Hello Quentin57,

Can my Sysop-acount on lb:Wikrionary be reactivated. There is a lot to do, and playstation is growing. At least more than one third of the articles in exotic languages can not be verified and have to be deleeted. Actually quality is minus 250. Best regards --Les Meloures 15:30, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Les Meloures@lb.wiktionaryEdit

Hello, I request an extension as a sysop on lb.wiktionary. Information for the local community was posted here.

Les Meloures@lb.wiktionaryEdit

Request for adminship.

Hello, I think this is for the fifth time I make a request. Since beginning I was the only real luxemburgish native speaking member. I am an administrator on Wikpedia:lb since five years, and I don't understand why on wiktionary I'm only granted for temporary adminship. If I'm not active, there is no native luxemburgish speaking user. I don't do this work because I have nothing else to do, but as I was requestet to save the lb: Wiktionary. If you know someone who can do this work better, you may name hime as an administrator. I will never more ask for temporary adminship and continue this requests every six months, like a little boy who asks for gifts. I let you be the judge if an adminship is usefull or not. Best regards --Les Meloures (talk) 18:40, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

For the moment the IP 94.224.1.254 is creating wrong, and misswritten articles. As I am no more an admin I cannot delete and actually nobody of all stewards is able to verify what is wrong and what not. I was 15 days in hospital and in this time I could not verify. Afterwards i had a job for ten days to correct. Please hurry up with adminship otherwise the lb:wiktionaty will have bad future. --Les Meloures (talk) 18:40, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Well I think I would agree with this Les Meloures user, especially like the saying: "I will never more ask for temporary adminship and continue this requests every six months, like a little boy who asks for gifts." Or that would look like a puppet or beggar that ask for sysop every 6 months. Trusted users should be trusted and treated with more respect in my opinion. Their contribution are obvious very valuable.Trongphu (talk) 22:40, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Please start a discussion on a central community page (such as the Village Pump), even if the wiki is inactive, and leave it open for at least seven days. Then provide the link to this discussion in the "discussion=" box above. If there are no objections to your adminship after that period, stewards will consider temporary adminship, but these steps must be followed first. The local community must be given an opportunity to voice their opinions before we decide the outcome. PeterSymonds (talk) 20:16, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
This discussion on a central community page for adminship was done allready once on this page, in June and the stewards were informed. Bur I think nobody noticed, an again nobody notices that the lb: community is very little and rather without permanent users. But it grows step by step and the saving of the project needed hundreds of hours, done by less than 3 users. The problem is this: If there is no permanent survey by an admin than lb.wiki will become the playstation op a lot of IP-users, as you may see again on the activities today. Best regards --Les Meloures (talk) 21:04, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
I understand what Les Meloures says and I think we could make an effort, even if it's contrary to our principles. I helped him to start this wiki and know that he is wise and trustable. The best compromise would be, in my humble opinion, to grant a very long delay of temporary adminship, such as two years. What do you (Les Meloures and other stewards) think about it ?
I thought about something to help the luxembourgish community to grow up, because you're the only contributor on this project right now. What abouting welcoming users who contribute for the first time and offering them your help, thanking users who made a good contribution, etc. ? This is done on lots of projects and would not be a waste of time. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 18:03, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
I dont know what can help the community to grow up. Actually two users are working.Some IP-adresses and specially one of the flamish region takes the lb wiktionary as his own playstation. He does experiments in all possible language that we are not able to control, and he does so many mistakes, and so more than 60% of his contributions must be deleted. A weekly survey with noticing other steward to delete is not the best solution. On the request to 3 years ago to help saving lb.Wiktionary I agreed, and a lot of cleaning up was done. A young user helped for some months, but actually he is busy on his studium, but still remains interested. If lb Wiktionary should be considered as as trustworthy there must be no articles that are not controlable and verified by an nativ speaker, and for foreign languages there should exist interwiki to confirm. I do this controls since beginning of the request. As I am a confirmed admin on lb.Wikipedia since 5 years, I don't understand the problem for giving an adminship for longer time. I am an 62 years old man, intrested on helping to grow this project, but i am not willing every 6 months to repeat the same litany to have adminship. Best regards --Les Meloures (talk) 09:25, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
OK. No problem for me, as I said above. Waiting the opinion of other stewards, I want to have your point of view on this MediaWiki extension, which could help you to review the articles. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 12:19, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Superprotect statusEdit

Dear Les Meloures, since you are an administrator on a wiki from which no user participated in this discussion, I'd like to make sure you are aware of some recent events which may alter what the Wikimedia Foundation lets you do on your wiki: Superprotect.
