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 ===
{{Status|In progress}}
Your request --~~~~

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., requests[edit]

Status:    In progress

At [] there are requests for words which should be added. Some of those requests got fulfilled, so please remove the words mentioned at [].
Maybe it would be better to replace "Rogatus", "Per thema", "Nexus rari", "Describendae" by link to a page like [] which can be edited by everyone. A Latin name could be [] ("Wiktionary:Requests").
Also I'd like to repeat this request: [] (the one entry now in the deletion category was a miscreated user page and no Wiktionary word entry; deletion category: []).
Thanks for the fulfilment of the last request and thanks in advance regarding this request. - 15:20, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Done for wikt:la:Categoria:Delenda.--AldNonymousBicara? 15:33, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
I've updated MediaWiki:Recentchangestext, but I'm not sure about the second part of the request, I think that should be done by a Latin speaker. Matiia (talk) 20:51, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
I deliberately left it alone because same reason as yours Matiia, I hope someone will do the request.--AldNonymousBicara? 19:07, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Broken styles on pswiki[edit]

Status:    In progress

As reported on my talk page:

on Pashto Wikipedia there are several problems i.e. The Navboxes are not appearing (see example) and Infoboxes has also technical problems (see example).So therefore please copy the data from this page and paste it into ps:Mediawiki:common.css.Please do it as soon as possible, its very important because all the navbox and infobox are not appearing correctly.--UsmanKhan (talk) 03:51, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Pathoschild 03:55, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Before re-adding, can someone please go through that code and fix it? It was causing quite a few problems, including making text quite a bit larger and breaking some pages (that I saw anyway). Ajraddatz (talk) 04:19, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

kowikt speedy queue[edit]

Status:    partially

kowikt speedy request queue has backlog. kowikt has no local sysop. Please clean it up. --Thswnstjr123 (talk) 00:47, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Actually there is a local sysop. --Stryn (talk) 05:30, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
I pinged him to do this task, so we will wait for a moment for a likely reaction because he seems very busy. Should we mark this as not done? or Will be locally Handled?. Regards--Grind24 (talk) 19:25, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
I've deleted some of these pages, the most obvious cases, because the local sysop is not active since 2015/05/11. I leave the rest of the pages for the local sysop because of his better knowledge of the language and local policies.--Syum90 (talk) 11:06, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
This user is no longer admin, and now the project does not have any local admin.--Syum90 (talk) 07:55, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
I've deleted some more pages, but not all.--Syum90 (talk) 09:39, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Import 2[edit]

Status:    In progress

First of all thanks to User:Stryn for the last import. Could you also please import w:de:Wikipedia:Beobachtungsliste to Help:Watching pages/de? Thanks, Impériale (talk) 16:36, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

This should be definetly imported Mediawiki because the link "Hilfe" on this page links to this page on Mediawiki. --Impériale (talk) 12:32, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
Hi @Impériale: - So, do you need an XML import of that dewiki page over here, right? Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 10:27, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
I don't know, what is a XML import? --Impériale (talk) 15:46, 29 July 2015 (UTC) deletions[edit]

Status:    In progress

There are some old redirects in the main namespace hanging around from the addition of a namespace years ago, see [1] for the titles. These should all get cleaned up. There are two admins there but a bit sparse during the late summer. -- ArielGlenn (talk) 13:04, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi ArielGlenn, I see Ah3kal is somewhat active. However, which is the list of pages that need deletion? I see various tables in the Phabricator ticket, all of them? Maybe we can go with a bot and have them deleted, or make you a temporary sysop there for technical reasons and have you delete them yourself :-) Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 10:26, 21 July 2015 (UTC)


Status:    In progress

I request to delete all pages nominated for deletion in this category.--UsmanKhan (talk) 11:13, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Unfortunately I am unable to verify the validity of many of the deletion requests, since they are much related to content. Could you please let another Pashto user confirm all of these pages are no longer needed and wanted? Thanks in advance, Vogone (talk) 14:06, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
Also it can be a good idea to write the delete reasons in English since there are no local admins.--Syum90 (talk) 14:34, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

My userpage on minor wikis[edit]

Status:    done just on tkwiki

I have requested speedy deletion of my user pages on the wikis, where I am not active. I've used local templates for the requests on every one of them. However there are several, where there is probably no one to fulfill them. So, please remove the following pages: (1) th:ผู้ใช้:Eugrus, (2) tk:Ulanyjy:Eugrus, (3) mk:Корисник:Eugrus and (4) yi:באַניצער:Eugrus. --eugrus (talk) 00:28, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Done on tkwiki, the other wikis have active local sysops, so we can do nothing. Matiia (talk) 00:51, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
Ok, thanks! --eugrus (talk) 15:05, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
