Requests and proposals Steward requests (Miscellaneous) Archives
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 (but above the See also section) using the format below:

=== Very brief description of request here ===
{{Status|In progress}}
Give details about your request here. --~~~~

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.

When reporting cross-wiki vandalism, the following template calls can be used to link to a user's contributions across all Wikimedia content wikis (these are for logged in users and non-logged-in users, respectively):

* {{sultool|Username}}

* {{luxotool|IP.address}}

Template {{LockHide}} can also be used in appropriate cases.

To request approval of OAuth consumers please use {{oauthapprequest}} (see the documentation before using).

Old requests are archived by the date of their last comment.

Manual requests[edit]

Please see a list of pages nominated for speedy deletion via {{Delete}} and/or the local equivalent. You can also filter by wikis whose admins are less than X or have not delete since Y.

Bot activity in Turkish Wikinews[edit]

Status:    In progress

Over in the Turkish Wikinews, GrondinBot has created thousands of empty "daily" project pages and categories, and apparently will continue to do so forever into the future, despite the fact that the wiki has almost no editing community left and no admins, the bot was seemingly only explicitly approved to maintain interwiki links, and the users who were involved in the approval process (AFAICT) have not edited the wiki for about 5–8 years. See n:fr:User talk:Grondin#Daily pages, where I challenged the bot's operator on the necessity and validity of this bot work and was completely unsuccessful (the discussion includes more links to evidence — although to understand all of it, it would help if you read French as well as Turkish [I read neither]). I believe the work this bot does is no longer needed on that wiki and that the vast majority of pages it has created there should be deleted. Steward opinions on this? I posted a comment nearly identical to this one on the wiki's equivalent of the VP two weeks ago, and have gotten no response. - dcljr (talk) 20:46, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

You argument is basically that trwikinews is dead and should be closed. Ruslik (talk) 20:07, 8 August 2018 (UTC)
Um, no, my argument is that the wiki has no real editing community and no admins, but has a bot that will be filling the wiki up forever with useless, empty pages. The bot should be stopped and the worthless pages deleted, but the wiki can sit there inactive forever, as far as I'm concerned. Inactivity is not a valid reason for closure, anyway. - dcljr (talk) 05:30, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
Well, IMO, "no real editing community and no admins" are sufficient to close a wiki and bring them back to the incubator, but langcom won't buy my arguments, so... back to the discussion, if there is no community as you describe and there is no objection for few weeks (or a month), I guess bot can be blocked (to stop them). Deleting the debris will take more time than I want to, so if someone wants to do it, they should do it after getting temporary adminship. — regards, Revi 05:45, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
Despite the fact that no one has commented on my n:tr:VP post (mentioned above), I know that won't be sufficient evidence for some people that the bot is no longer needed there. So I have notified several users on that wiki directly on their talk pages (namely, a handful of users who have edited in the main namespace in the last 30 days, as well as the three I linked to in my comment above who seemed to have something to do with getting the bot approved in the first place, years ago), pointing them to the VP discussion about the bot. We'll see if anyone comments, and if so, what they have to say. - dcljr (talk) 22:00, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
OK, well, I have not been able to drum up any discussion at all on that wiki about the bot activity there in the intervening 2 months. I have notified the bot's owner about this and again asked him to stop the bot's work on that wiki. - dcljr (talk) 00:56, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
@Dcljr: Any update on this? The archival of emptiness indeed seems useless to me, albeit not necessarily harmful. That being said, I do not think an intervention should happen if the bot operator indeed believes continuing his bot's operation is beneficial, considering the absence of protest by any local user. --Vogone (talk) 01:21, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
Crickets. Next month (December 2018) will be the next time the bot is due to add hundreds of new useless pages, BTW. I can't help thinking that the bot owner is more interested in seeing his bot work on wikis than in determining whether that work is actually helpful. - dcljr (talk) 03:35, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

Pending speedy deletion requests on nahwiktionary[edit]

Status:    On hold

Please check wikt:nah:Neneuhcāyōtl:Para borrar en breve (edit: 28 subcats, 42 pages ATOW. 18:58, 13 August 2018 (UTC)). The only administator there has not been active in the last year (edits, logs). CC User:Marrovi as the author of most (all?) of those requests. Kind regards, Peter Bowman (talk) 18:53, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done, the "only administrator" you mentioned as well seems to be the author of most of these articles. I suppose it's best to wait until he returns. In the meantime, a ping (@Frank C. Müller:) should suffice. Regards, --Vogone (talk) 00:45, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
He really is the only one right now, no need to quote. I agree with you, though - it looked to me like he had left the project, but now I see he's still active elsewhere. Would it make sense to put this request on hold for one week or two until he responds? Peter Bowman (talk) 12:43, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
If you prefer, sure. I used quotation marks just to make it clear that I referred to someone whom you had previously mentioned. I am sorry if this has been misunderstood. Kind regards, —Vogone (talk) 15:11, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Hi! Thanks for pinging me and informing me via my german Wikipedia-user-page!
Yes, I still am an admin at the nahuatl Wiktionary, and I think even I still am a bureaucrat. But I retired from this project in about 2014. In the years between 2011 and 2013 except Marrovi I was nearly the only active user in the nahuatl wiktionary.
In contrast to me Marrovi is a native nahuatl speaker, and he was a studious author in many of our projects.
But also he is a bit special, and in the meantime he is blocked on many projects. On the one hand he edits a lot, but on the other hand he often ignores the rules and even the manifold advice of his co-authors, and he nearly never explains or justifies his actions.
In the nahuatl Wiktionary I had established a certain system in building the Wiktionary and representing the language. Marrovi was adding a lot of words, and I nearly always had to correct or complete his entries. I could accept his knowledge of the language, and he accepted my way of structuring the language in the Wiktionary.
But we only were two! And we stayed only two! After three years of activity I began to doubt, if it was so meaningfull to write a dictionary with only two authors: one who thinks, he knows how to write a Wiktionary, but without any deeper knowledge of the nahuatl language, and one native language speaker who not actually is able to contribute as a member of a team, of a community, which has certain rules. So I gave it up and concentrated on german Wikipedia, Commons, and german Wiktionary.
I had a look on Marrovi's deletion requests (Neneuhcayotl:Para borrar en breve). Obviously he tries to reorganize the nahuatl wiktionary. I don't know if his intention is meaningfull or includes a methodical plan, and - pardon me - I have no desire to clarify this. I guess, Marrovi nowadays is the only human user in the nahuatl wiktionary, and I also guess, this is a rather dangerous situation.
So, I actually don't know, what do do!
gruß, fcm. --Frank C. Müller (talk) 11:26, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
Hi, @Frank C. Müller:, thank you for your comments (and thanks @Vogone: for reaching him on dewiki, I should have done that in the first place!). I have advised Marrovi to specify the sources he based his edits on, hoping it's a starting point to work on. mfG, Peter Bowman (talk) 11:03, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

I show you my photographs about my works and meetings at the University of Warsaw, in Poland [1], at UNAM (my mother university) and in Wikipedia about the Nahuatl languages, because now you can prove that I'm not an ordinary user as you were led to believe, many years of work guarantee me, is bother for me that you get ripped off. See you.--Marrovi (talk) 01:27, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

Taller sobre lengua náhuatl en archivos, Universidad de Varsovia y Archivo General de la Nación.jpg
Your questions have been answered, can you read my answer in my user talk, they never make a message on my user talk, about questions. Obviusly I need help with a new changes over the Nahuatl languages. --Marrovi (talk) 12:05, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
Frank C. Müller, Are you understand Nahuatl languages? What is dangerous situation? No is the same Classical Nahuatl to Central Nahuatl or Huasteca Nahuatl, the words are differents, by this reason is neccesary to delete many articles. The Nahuatl laguages convention was the next month at INALI Institute; the standard alphabet for Nahuan languages is now A, B, CH, E, G, H, I, K, L, M, N, O, P, S, T, U, W, X, Y. Now they are making researchs about linguistic seasons, to connect ideas between comunities and to know the idioms or variants. --Marrovi (talk) 12:04, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

The Nahuatl variants are a rich heritage for Mexico, Now I have a standard language (Nawatlahtolli), but we have got many Nahuan languages very interesting as Tetelcingo Nahuatl, Mecayapan Nahuatl, Pipil, Durango Nahuatl, Huasteca Nahuatl, Tlaxcala Nahuatl, Texcoco Nahuatl (all languages are diferents) as soon as Hochdeusch (Deutsch), Bavarian, Palatine, Low German, Swebisch, Swiss or Tirol.

Obviously I try to reorganize the nahuatl wiktionary, because this Mexican language is the most studied in the Americas with Maya, Quechua and Guarani. I'm to studied Nahuan languages by 15 years ago with Native people and Nahuatl institutes, as other persons, I know and I speak this language, but I am not Native speaker.--Marrovi (talk) 12:29, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia projects are not atractive projects by indigenous communities, is very complicated but is the reality, User:Tepoxteco is only the Nahuatl Native speaker in Wikipedia projects.--Marrovi (talk) 12:55, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

I continue here.
@Marrovi: Thanks for your comment! You asked me "What is dangerous situation?": Dangerous is a wiki-project with only one user. Normally the wiki-projects are based on a community of many co-authors with a mutual supervision. This is the structural base of our quality. But a project with only one author has actually no supervision at all, and hence no proved quality. The quality is not proved: that's the danger.
@Peter Bowman: Where did you advise Marrovi to specify the sources?
gruß, fcm. --Frank C. Müller (talk) 12:47, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
@Frank C. Müller: I gave him my advice on eswiktionary, and his original request for help (several pending speedy deletions on nahwikt) is here. Regards, Peter Bowman (talk) 14:55, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
@Peter Bowman: Thanks for the links!
It's a bit complicated to keep together in mind all these edits in all these projects, all of them concerning the nahuatl languages and their representations in the different wiktionaries!
gruß, fcm. --Frank C. Müller (talk) 18:10, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

Frank C Müller invented many words in different nahua spellings, it's a chaos to eliminate that incorrect material in nahwictionary.--Marrovi (talk) 04:19, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Large pagina merge at nl-wiki[edit]

Status:    In progress

Dear stewards, Per this request I kindly request that you merge two page history's. Leftovers from a mess created by Masti who seems to be unable to understand how to clean up the mess/what is aksked of him. I kindly request that you merge the page history of nl:Overleg gebruiker:MoiraMoira/OverlegArchief51 with the page history of nl:Overleg gebruiker:MoiraMoira. “Overleg gebruiker:MoiraMoira” should be the target page and “Overleg gebruiker:MoiraMoira/OverlegArchief51” the “source” page.

As a local sysop I concluded that the original request made by Jeroen N to our local administrators has merit and should be fulfilled. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them.

Regards, Natuur12 (talk) 20:30, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

Natuur12 Is steward action still required? Thank you, Vermont (talk) 14:18, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
Vermont yes, steward action is still required. Natuur12 (talk) 15:21, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

Upload XML on Punjabi Wikisource[edit]

Status:    In progress

We need this feature to import templates into Punjabi Wikisource.

Discussion: here

--Gurlal Maan (talk) 10:59, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

It is not clear what you are requesting? Ruslik (talk) 21:00, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
@Gurlal Maan: do you know if this is a MediaWiki feature that needs to be enabled on your wiki (i.e., currently no one can do this, so a configuration setting will need to be changed to allow it), or whether the feature is already enabled but there are simply no users on your wiki who have the correct "user rights" to perform the action? If it's the former, then I think you need to submit a "task" at the Phabricator to request this configuration change. (See mw:Phabricator/Help for general info and Requesting wiki configuration changes for more specific instructions about submitting this kind of task.) If it's the latter (a user-rights change), then I guess this is indeed the correct page to ask a steward to grant those rights. Just clarify what you need. - dcljr (talk) 00:02, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
Small correction: User rights have to be requested at SRP and require prior community consensus on your wiki. --Vogone (talk) 00:13, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
Import has already been enabled (see phab:T185982). So you don’t need any additional permission or configuration; simply go to s:pa:Special:Import and select the page to import. (It requires admin, importer or transwiki importer rights, but you are already an admin.) —Tacsipacsi (talk) 11:52, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Yes, Special:Import has already enabled but on this page there is no option to upload XML (templates) file. On bengali wikisource there is a option in special:import to upload XML files. I request to add or enable this option in s:pa:Special:Import-Gurlal Maan (talk) 15:35, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
    @Gurlal Maan: And do you really need it? The currently available import options also include importing templates used on the page to import. While I think it’s more convenient to skip the download and upload of the XML file, it’s also safer from Wikimedia’s point of view, as it can be used to import only from other WMF wikis. Currently import from XML is only available for members of the importers group (search for “importupload” on s:pa:Special:ListGroupRights), so if you need it indeed, you can either request importer rights or request to have this right given to administrators too (of course backed with community consensus in either case; I don’t know whether the one linked above will be accepted by the bureaucrats/developers, as it’s not specifically about the change you will ask for). —Tacsipacsi (talk) 17:13, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
Importupload is, as I said on SRP, 'super duper hyper' sensitive right. It probably won't be granted to sysop by default. — regards, Revi 06:11, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Deletions on sowiki[edit]

Status:    In progress

Please see so:Category:Tirtir, as well as the contribs of the following:

All pages in the category need deletion, as well as all the pages created by the IP’s, which are copyright violations copied and machine translated from the English Wikipedia. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 14:40, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

Why are they copyright violations if they are copied from enwiki? Ruslik (talk) 20:33, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
The main concern here is the poor quality of the machine translations. The attribution issues could surely be fixed. --Vogone (talk) 20:39, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
The Share-alike part of the CC BY-SA 3.0 license, which is why xwiki attribution is a thing. Also, see above; I would go through and attribute, although it's useless as the pages are of terrible quality. Vermont (talk) 19:46, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
Found another one: [2]. Also please nuke contribs of this user; the vast majority of pages created are machine translated from enwiki, and the others are copied graphs and charts. Vermont (talk) 20:09, 15 November 2018 (UTC) User dealt with by Rxy Vermont (talk) 20:39, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

New created accounts on rmwiki[edit]

Status:    In progress

Since several months a huge amount of new accounts has been created on Romansh Wikipedia. None of these new accounts has been editing on rmwiki. It seems that somebody creates myriads of sockpuppets - perhaps per script. Is it possible to stop this? --Holder (talk) 16:52, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

Those look like are (mostly) spambots. Praxidicae (talk) 16:54, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
Hi Praxidicae. Thanks for your answer. Could these spambots be stopped? --Holder (talk) 08:44, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
It is not easy to stop those accounts from being created. It'd require a combination of IP blocks and rangeblocks. This is happening daily on all wikis but on wikis with few or no activity it looks like the problem is bigger. I can take a look but I cannot promise much. We've been fighting this for years unsuccessfully. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:37, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
I've locked a bunch of accounts. Will continue with the investigation later today. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:10, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
Thank you very much. --Holder (talk) 13:29, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

┌────────────────┘
I see the spambot registration continues. I'll take a look again. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 08:39, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

  • Comment Comment @Holder: Spambots appear to be something that seem to be a low priority for WMF developers to manage as part of their security operations. Stewards in the past, and presumably in the present, have tried to get attention to this matter to no particular avail. Until the broader community is affected sufficiently to raise the roof, and to get it prioritised then expect it to continue. I have given up raising the matter, and now tinker around the edges to hopefully lessen the burden of their impact, however, I can do nothing about their account creation, that solely lies with the developers.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:35, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Global sysop stats tool[edit]

Status:    In progress

Quentinv57's globalsysopstats is broken. As the user seems to be inactive since 2015 I want to ask if somebody could fix this tool. Thanks. --Holder (talk) 06:40, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

The tool has had their database access banned by WMF because as it was coded it performed several expensive queries that made other tools to break (cf. https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T194343#4200496). It has no maintainer and I don't know how to fix it. I'd say the best is to shut it down completely. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 08:45, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

Potential copyright infringement at Bosnian Wikinews[edit]

Status:    In progress

I was looking at articles from n:bs:Kategorija:Novembar 2018., and I found a few (if not many) of them to be copied from sources. One article n:bs:Darko Mrđa i Zoran Babić proglašeni krivim za počinjenje krivičnog djela Zločini protiv čovječnosti is apparently copied mostly from portions of one government article. Another article n:bs:Austrija usvojila zabranu ustaških simbola is also probably copied from Al-Jazeera article written in one of Slavic languages, i.e. probably either Bosnian, Croatian or transliterated Serbian.

Unsure about articles from n:bs:Kategorija:Decembar 2018. and ones from other date categories. Nevertheless, I found n:bs:Boško Dević osuđen na kaznu zatvora u trajanju od 10 godina to be copied mostly from one source and another. --George Ho (talk) 00:34, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
