Request[edit]

The following discussion is marked as answered (matter seems resolved now, with the thread closure). If you have a new comment, add it just below the box.

can you please speak to 82.149.127.22 to stop calling me "abusive" and keep fussing on a closed case? I'm sick and tired reading this false things about me. My contributions all over the project speak another language. Alternatively, how can i report this IP? Thanks in advance --Saviour1981 (talk) 14:56, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

A ctrl+f on Steward Requests shows no use of those words. In any case the matter seems closed to me. Snowolf How can I help? 18:56, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
Problem solved. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 19:57, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
They didn't stop arguing. Did you check the revision immediately prior to my attempt to archive the thread? The anon wished to continue the argument. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 20:00, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
I had not notice that, thank you for pointing that out. I have stuck and archive top and bottom on the request now. Snowolf How can I help? 20:03, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
You're welcome, and thank you for understanding and helping. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 20:14, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Thank you everyone. I'm glad we had this conversation :) --Saviour1981 (talk) 08:18, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Is it possible that i can report this IP? It's not just bullying me for being "abusive" (i never was and never will), it calls two stewards as "disqualified" due to the fact that the IP can't accept the final decision. This IP wasn't active in some Wikimedia projects but is foul mouthed on a discussion that's nothing to it. See here, here, and there. The behaviour of this IP is not acceptable --Saviour1981 (talk) 10:14, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Remove urwiki from gs list[edit]

Hi Snowolf :) We would like to remove urdu wikipedia from that list of wikis where Global sysops can use their rights, So how it will be done? :) --Muhammad Shuaib (talk) 11:23, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Hello Muhammad. First of all, with only two currently active admins on the project, I think it would be most unwise to remove the wiki from the global sysop set as global sysops can provide valuable help with vandal and spam attacks at time where local admins might be otherwise unavailable. From a quick peak at the logs, I also see only one GS action this year, so I'm curious as to why you feel like this is required. Anyway, the procedure would involve community discussion and vote on the local village pump. Snowolf How can I help? 14:36, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decitions[edit]

The following discussion is marked as answered (not really directed at me). If you have a new comment, add it just below the box.

The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.

If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on change.org.

I'm notifying you because you participated in one of several relevant discussions. -Pete F (talk) 22:21, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Self-unblock by a custodian[edit]

Thanks for your prompt action on my request for emergency desysop. Yes, ordinarily, there is a strong tradition that a sysop may not unblock themselves. We do have some possible exceptions.

  • If a block is an emergency measure to stop abusive sysop actions, and is accompanied by an agreement to be made in order to remove the need for the block, we will sometimes allow self-unblock. It is superior, of course, if the sysop agrees to the restriction and is then unblocked by the blocking admin. On Wikipedia, with a huge number of active administrators, an unblock template would be far more appropriate. But on a very small wiki, it can be necessary to cut corners. In this case, there was self-unblock, showing notice of the complaint, and then continued recusal failure with no emergency.
  • If the continued activity of a sysop is crucial to the wiki, self-unblock may be allowed. On large wikis, this is much less important, but, again, on a small wiki, it can loom large.
  • If a probationary custodian blocks a permanent custodian, in a retaliatory way, self-unblock may be allowed, but, again, with referral to the community as described below. In this case, the permanent custodian blocked the probationary one, clearly for violation of block policy. Then the probationary custodian unblocked himself and blocked the permanent one, without asserting any violation of policy, only that the actions were "bad."
  • Self-unblock should *always* be referred to the community. It's an emergency action, where what is ordinarily inadvisable or even prohibited, is done out of concern for the welfare of the wiki. Just as with a police action that, say, results in injury to a person, there should be a review if there is any possible suspicion of impropriety.
  • The permanent custodian in this case was acting in full consultation with the community, both on and off-wiki. There is a bureaucrat involved, and he was clearly becoming aware of the situation, and had started to address it, but was possibly not realizing the depth of the problem, he was assuming ordinary, reasonably cooperative behavior. He was aware of the problems, and was giving the probationary custodian an opportunity to explain himself.
  • The probationary custodian was not consulting the community at all, and was actively rejecting community input, which he took personally, calling it "harassment." He was violating policy routinely, giving excuses of hazard to the community, which can legitimate drastic action, but which would always, with one exception, require community consultation. Does the community want to be protected in this way? (The exception has to do with child protection. There was no present child protection issue in this case, as to anything recent, nothing that would require revision deletion, for example. Child protection issues are reviewed on private mailing lists or the like. -- globally, stewards-l.)

I've seen many emergency desysop actions over the years. Your action was not outside the envelope, except for one thing: normally, this will be requested by a bureaucrat. Normally, if there is no available bureaucrat, there will be a community discussion. As can be seen in this case, the probationary custodian was attempting to prevent community discussion. That's untenable. If that is seen, and even if the sysop is the last local one available, the tools should be yanked. Global sysops may help, stewards may help, and temporary sysop tools can be given to trusted users, committed to facilitating local process to resolve the conflict. The removal of tools is without prejudice. It is not a finding that the sysop was bad or wrong. It is simply that a community review cannot take place if the community is being suppressed. It's like an injunction, with teeth.

(An alternative would have been to warn the sysop and prohibit him from taking certain actions, and only desysop if he violates the prohibitions. That is something that would make sense if the sysop was actively maintaining the community. Here, the loss of this sysop will have very little effect, from his history.)

This user will not be abused here. His mentor will decide how to proceed. The only major problem, so far, was in his arbitrary and often clueless use of sysop tools, and his refusal to learn. So, thanks. There are processes open that can, if needed, continue examination of this, but there is no longer any emergency that cannot be handled locally. --Abd (talk) 18:48, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
