Requests and proposals Steward requests (Miscellaneous) latest archive
This page is for requesting that a specific administrative action (such as page deletion) be performed by a steward or global sysop on a Wikimedia wiki having no active administrators. (If the wiki does have active administrators, file the request with one of them.) If the wiki has an active editor community, any potentially controversial action (deletion of actual content, edit to a protected page, renaming of a protected page, etc.) should receive consensus from the wiki community before being requested here, and a link should be provided to that consensus in the request.

To add a new request, create a new section header at the bottom of the page (just above the categories) of the form:

=== Very brief description of request here ===

Then describe your request more fully below that. It is helpful if you can provide a link to the wiki (or the specific page on the wiki) in question, either in the header or in the body of your request.

To report vandalism issues, please use Vandalism reports instead.

Bot-reported speedy deletion requests[edit]

This section is for reports filed via Kimberley-nia Bot on the SWMT's IRC channel #cvn-sw (bot's irc nick is Dellieplagiat). They are submitted on this subpage. Please watch this page separately if you are a steward, a global sysop, or a local administrator.

It is possible to manually edit this list if you follow the bot's formatting. If you feel a request is inappropriate, please remove the lines containing that request entirely. (Leaving comments, modifying the header line, and striking out reports will confuse the bot.)

Example for the correct formatting:

* {{msd-link|ie.wikipedia|Talk:Europa}}
*: spam - IRC user DerHexer ~~~~~

Properly-filed requests that point to pages that have already been deleted or do not exist will be automatically removed by the bot. Note: It is unnecessary to remove requests for wikis where local admins "can handle it by themselves". If that is really so, the pages will surely be deleted within a small period of time and then be automatically removed from the list by the bot.


Manual requests[edit]

Please see this tool for a list of pages tagged with {{Delete}} and/or the local equivalent.

Check suspicious User-namespace activity on wikt:om:[edit]

Could someone check out this recent IP-editor activity on the (adminless) Oromo Wiktionary and respond appropriately? By way of explanation, see my comment on the editor's talk page, which has not garnered a reply (possibly because their IP address has changed). - dcljr (talk) 07:45, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

I deleted the user pages. The templates and articles created by the IP don't look too useful as well... --MF-W 10:04, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

References to toolserver.org in site-wide JS[edit]

Hi, I created a list of JavaScript pages in the MediaWiki namespace that mention "toolserver.org". If someone could look through those and figure out which ones need to be updated or just removed that would be appreciated. Legoktm (talk) 23:38, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

  • wm2008 is done. --Rschen7754 23:52, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Jack took care of all the Gadget-CodeEditor.js ones, thanks! Legoktm (talk) 05:54, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Fixed or locally reported the Italian wikis'. --Nemo 06:25, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

JavaScript errors on main pages for anonymous users[edit]

Status:    Done

Hi, I ran a script to find errors being thrown by JavaScript on a site's main page for logged out users. Some of these are syntax errors, and others might be a bit more complicated. The list is here. Legoktm (talk) 23:38, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, I will try to fix them. Ruslik (talk) 06:45, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done (except private and fishbowl wikis) Ruslik (talk) 17:31, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Legoktm (talk) 18:52, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

oc.wikipedia and my.wikipedia[edit]

The oc and my Wikipedias have quite long lists of speedy deletion candidates. Particularly the oc.wikipedia as seen here, many listed for deletion since December. The my.wikipedia list is here. Cheers. Delsion23 (talk) 21:24, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Both projects have recently active local administrators, User:Jfblanc for ocwiki and User:Mmthinker for mywiki. Considering this, I don't think here is much left for global sysops/stewards to intervene and please consider to make them aware of the situation. Kind regards, Vogone (talk) 21:28, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Norfuk wikipedia[edit]

The pih.wikipedia speedy deletion category needs emptying thanks. [1] 130.88.141.34 11:28, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

This happened (not by me). --MF-W 01:46, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
