This part of the discussion was started prematurely, before I transcluded this request.
You do realize that your last request was a 6 month extension right..which means it expires in late December.. ?--Cometstyles 00:20, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
Sure I do, that's why I didn't transclude this subpage. I just had a couple of minutes to kill and prepared this one so that it doesn't hit me as cold as it did last time, when I lost admin rights for a couple of days. --Dschwen 00:09, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
ahh, so you are hoping this page stays for another 3 months before its transcluded ;) ...--Cometstyles 00:20, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
Uhm, yes. Does that make me look very naive? ;-) I wouldn't have guessed that some people are monitoring the creation of sub-pages here. Darn! There goes my plan. Instead of saving time I'm creating even more of a fuss now. Sorry! :-) --Dschwen 14:24, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
I won't make a remark yet, but this request needs to be transcluded. This is a request for adminship, and it should be viewable at the page where requests for adminship are conducted. —Anonymous DissidentTalk 23:35, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
You are right, and it will be transcluded in 2.5 months. Please note that I have actually not made the request for adminship yet, as that would require transclusion. --Dschwen 00:01, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
I really don't see the point in requesting every six months for the exact same thing. Majorlytalk 00:14, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
How about I write a bot to make the requests every six months and provide a sign up page where people can put their name down to have the bot add their support/oppose votes automatically. The request would only have to be closed by an admin. ;-) --Dschwen 00:40, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
Please continue down here.
Just get permanent adminship and be done with. These requests are just going to go on forever aren't they if you don't. Majorlytalk 18:48, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
Can someone explain to me:
Why the code is on Meta instead of, say, Commons (where Dschwen has permanent adminship) or the toolserver (where Dschwen has an account)?
Why we can't give him indefinite-but-restricted-to-this-task adminship so we don't keep wasting time?
I'm certain I asked the second question at some point. These requests for the same thing, which could just be granted indef, are becoming rather tiresome, at least for me. Majorlytalk 20:59, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
Uhm.. ..ok, sorry. Did that sound frustrated?! --Dschwen 23:57, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
I think what point I'm trying to make at least is, I'll always support you for working on the code. But I don't want to have to keep supporting you every six months, or however long your adminship lasts. You should just get permanent adminship, that's restricted to the map, so you don't have to keep running back here for no real benefit. Majorlytalk 00:01, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
If that were possible that would be great. All I need, all I want. It just seems to me that there are only tow categories of adminship here on meta: Full admin, or temporary admin that has to renew every N months. A task-specific adminship does not seem to be planned for. --Dschwen 00:07, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
User:Aphaia has such rights. Even if we didn't, we can always create it. We are flexible :-) I'd be happy for you to continue indefinitely as a task-specific admin. Majorlytalk 00:08, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
I think she may have misunderstood what was meant by permanent. Either way, I don't think it matters too much. Majorlytalk 00:26, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
The problem with getting a permanent adminship is that you are not that active on Meta so there is a good chance that you will lose your adminship at your next confirmation and thus may be forced to apply for a new temp one, so it will be better if you try to fulfil the criteria of being an active admin if you do go for a permanent adminship..--Cometstyles 20:46, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
Why can't he have permanent adminship, but just for this task? Majorlytalk 20:59, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
Again, that would be fine with me. Maybe you should direct that question at those who opposed before. --Dschwen 23:57, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
Support giving him adminship for this task (only) for as long as he needs it with the requirement that I don't want to see another one of these silly things from him :D — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 15:18, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
Support - support permanent adminship, since all adminship on meta is valid for 1 year and after a year he will have to go through confirmations like every other admin so its fair and really, I can't wait for request number 5..NOT :P ...--Cometstyles 08:44, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
Nope. Limited adminship specifically does not go through confirmation, because it's a specialised task that does not necessarily require n edits over x months of activity. Majorlytalk 13:45, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
