Creating local user groupEdit

Hello, Sarri.greek. I remember that earlier in elwikt you quickly received my deletion request. It's been a long time no see. How have you been?

I read the message you left in SRM. Lua is not something I can help, but I understand that you want to create a group of local rollbackers. Creating a new user group is possible with local consensus. I think I can help that part if you want it. --Sotiale (talk) 06:23, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

O!! Very, very kind of you Sotiale to notice, to volunteer. Thank you, I'm fine, and staying safe 'at home'! Hope you are well too.
_rollbackers: Of course, we want it. We have two contributors waiting since February, there is no one who disagrees, but no one knows how to do it.
My point, in general, is that some kind of uniform basic, repetitive, standard things should be available for all wikis 'from above'. The small ones are doomed: only by mere chance could we have someone who knows a bit of Lua or a bit of Python for bots. For example, at el.wiktionary, in the past, we had excellent contributors, they were active for many years, but now they are gone. Some tasks are left half-done. I had to read about wikitext and Lua at wikiversity, at wikipedias, at wikitonaries, -at my age!-. Sooo difficult. Sarri.greek (talk) 06:45, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
I'm glad you're safe. Korea is less affected by the corona crisis than I thought, so I am doing well in my daily life. I'm an admin on medium-large wikis, but at the same time I'm also an admin on small wikis, so I understand the challenges you face from multiple perspectives. It is sad that my ability is not so great :( Anyway, creating a group of local rollbackers is not difficult. If there is a consensus between 7 and 14 days in a community space such as village pump, the group can be established.
First, you need to discuss about permissions your community wants to give rollbackers. For example, enwikt rollbackers have only rollback permission. Your community can add other permissions that are definitely needed locally. Once it's set up, open vote between 7 and 14 days to show support and oppose for developers to know. --Sotiale (talk) 07:10, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
Thank you Sotiale, so much. I' ll do as you say, and add some translated notes in English at the vote. Sarri.greek (talk) 07:39, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
Good. Let me know when the process is all over. And if you have any questions, please contact me. --Sotiale (talk) 07:51, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

Currently, the changed site settings are in the code review phase. After passing this step, the settings will be applied to the site :) (However, it is unknown who will press the button and when!) --Sotiale (talk) 10:23, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

Hi! I'm a Global sysop. Sorry for the confusion but I am not hacked. And I was deleting pages marked for speedy deletion. Operator873talkconnect 23:52, 15 September 2020 (UTC)


@Ah3kal: is it true?? Do you know this username? It came 3 o'clock in the morning, and started deleting pages we need to check. We are not familiar with this name at all. Never seen it before in Recent Changes like we do, other names Sarri.greek (talk) 23:58, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
Also: terrifying userpage!!! Sarri.greek (talk) 00:00, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

You can check my Special:CentralAuth/Operator873 if you like. I'm not hacker. You can speak with me directly #wikimedia-gsconnect if you like... Operator873talkconnect 00:03, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
I can verify that Operator873 is not hacked and is a legitimate global sysop. As he is a global sysop, you might not have seen him before as he patrols all of the small wikis. You can see his name listed here and his successful request archived here. Certainly not a hacker. Thanks, --IWI (talk) 00:09, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
Hi there Sarri.greek! As a steward (verify at Stewards#List_of_current_stewards, or, alternatively, at my CentralAuth), elected on this year's election, I am able to confirm that Operator is not a hacker, and is indeed a Global Sysop (verify at Global_sysops#Users_with_global_sysop_access, or, alternatively, at his CentralAuth). If you have any questions, please let me know. Best regards, —Thanks for the fish! talkcontribs 00:12, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
hhhh what a relief. Thank you all IWI, Tks4Fish, and sorry to have blocked this Operator. Thanks and sorry for the inconvinience, but I was really frightened. Sarri.greek (talk) 00:17, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
All good :) --IWI (talk) 00:19, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
I'm sorry I frightened you. I beg your pardon. Operator873talkconnect 00:35, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
