No democratic eleccion in Aztec Wikipedia (Huiquipedia .nah)[edit]

Status:    Not done

The user nah:user:Akapochtli was elected as the Huiquipedia admnistrador without an internal election to be admnistrador by people who edit in Huiquipedia [1]. It has a page where you should ask if choice and then proceed to the mandate of admnistrador. Not is valid request a position like this from the Spanish Wikipedia by users in Spanish that never edit Aztec Wikipedia following a conflict between Akapochtli and me [2].

This user is not an active user in Huiquipedia, do not perform maintenance activities, is not a native speaker of the Nahuatl language and not as part of his election to the small community of users in Nahuatl to be supported, which is considered a corrupt act.

I was locked in the first instant that was ceded his position from wikipedia in Spanish, which is considered a revenge because he has not reported on wikipedia my bad behavior with others and the cause of the blockage, he said, is the manifestation that I have on my personal page, which affects him and as I have not given in to remove the blockade justified skipping whole process of legal choice and be a judge at the suggestion of editors in Spanish Wikipedia. Do not confuse the problems of other wikipedias with abuse of authority committed in Huiquipedia following a problem outside Huiquipedia.--Marrovi (talk) 15:02, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

Comment. The comment's user Marrovi is speculative and personal interpretation. He does not understand or accept that it is impossible what sysops from es.wikipedia to name sysops on other wikis. Clearly he's calling me corrupt, if he can not prove it, then he is the aggressor. The blockade is not revenge, it is a consequence for using his mainpage to offend other users. And I sysop since 9 years ago, no recently.By the way, three people aren't a democracy from a community of 100 people.--Akapochtli (talk) 16:48, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

This is the wrong venue for this request. Please start an RFC. Ajraddatz (talk) 17:01, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

The wiki is locked and its content should not be changed. Therefore duplicate is not a valid reason for deletion. The same for absence of tags for obviously public domain images. 02:14, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
previous unsigned comment made by User:Ruslik0. 91.9.111.252 09:44, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
  • User:Ruslik0 said "The wiki is locked and its content should not be changed." - But several users, including Ruslik0, did change content in "locked" projects. Also the wmf:Resolution:Licensing policy makes no provisions for that. Can anyone cite a WMF resolution that allows copyvio in "locked" projects? 91.9.111.252 09:47, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, you are again lying: duplicate ≠ copyvio and "no permission tag" ≠ copyvio either. Ruslik (talk) 13:27, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Photograph of a human face. Could be a living person. Photographer not mentioned. Delete per wmf:Resolution:Licensing policy. --91.9.111.252 09:50, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

km: stub explosion[edit]

Status:    Done

Can someone please delete, with maximum prejudice, the last 5000+ newly-created main-namespace pages at the Khmer Wikipedia? They're all essentially empty (i.e., headings only) stubs for "year articles" that (mostly) will never, ever have any meaningful content added to them. Thanks in advance. - dcljr (talk) 05:10, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

It seems that the same user created also 100+ similar stubs in xmf.wiki and some in lb.wiki [3]. —Ah3kal (talk) 05:46, 16 May 2016 (UTC)
Please note that there are multiple IP addresses involved. The address Ah3kal cites was used for only about 1,500 of the stubs. - dcljr (talk) 06:23, 16 May 2016 (UTC)
I could help with this cleanup, but I am reluctant without consensus against mass creation of this kind of stubs.—Ah3kal (talk) 06:26, 16 May 2016 (UTC)
Obviously these stubs add nothing to the projects, but at the same time, they don't remove anything from it. I'm wondering if the effort would be worth it. If there was some way to batch-delete pages, then this task might be reasonable. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:12, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

not article[edit]

Status:    Not done

Can you delet all in here I'm not admis, and how to become admis. Terimakasih Murbaut (talk) 09:14, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Hello Murbaut, could you provide more context for those delete requests? As I understand tthe pages are in the user namespace, and no such users exist. Are those pages anyway for deletion or one could move them to the main namespace and they could stand as articles (are those people notable?)? You can apply for admin access at the local wiki's relevant page according to local procedures, if they do not exist, nominate yourself in the local village pump and then at Steward requests/Permissions. —Ah3kal (talk) 09:46, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
Why have all those pages been moved to the user namespace by StefanusRA? Savhñ 09:59, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
@Savh: maybe user stefanusRa don't know or made mistake. I also don't know why he move to user namespace, althought the user not register. Murbaut (talk) 14:51, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
Status changed to "notdone" because user has been granted temp adminship. Although I don't agree that small wiki like map-bms have deletionist-type admin. Articles like map-bms:Sumpiuh, Sumpiuh, Banyumas (a local district in the language region) is a perfectly good stub. map-bms:Pilus is another example. Even map-bms:Sepur Banter from 2006's admin was also deleted. Bennylin 10:51, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
Bennylin I want to create, a new artikel. The article is complete(with reference) and neat. Murbaut (talk) 12:45, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

OAuth consumer for ReplacerTool[edit]

Status:    Done

Hi, please approve this OAuth consumer request for *ReplacerTool*.
This is a (still beta) tool to help fixing misspellings in Spanish Wikipedia, for the editions of BenjaBot that must be reviewed manually.
Thanks in advance. --Benjavalero (talk) 12:05, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Is this tool intended to be used only on eswiki? Ruslik (talk) 16:47, 21 May 2016 (UTC)
If you use the oAuth consumer only for your bot, then create a owner-only oAuth consumer which is automatically approved. --Steinsplitter (talk) 17:10, 21 May 2016 (UTC)
@Benjavalero: ^. Matiia (talk) 00:04, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
Well, my intention is that, once the tool is polished (I think is quite usable right now) it can be used by anyone. For the moment it is only intended for the Spanish Wikipedia, as it treats exclusively Spanish misspellings. --Benjavalero (talk) 07:45, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
By the way, the oAuth consumer request was already approved and it works pretty well. Maybe the status should be set as "Done". --Benjavalero (talk) 07:47, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

Request for mass deletion on sdwiki[edit]

Status:    Done

This morning on IRC #cvn-sw channel, I foundan IP user create thousands of year articles on sdwiki, which are without any meaningful context, and he even created to 4102AD, which obviously violates en:WP:FUTURE. However, sdwiki is a small wiki and I cannot find local admins there since I do not understand their language, thus I come here for help. Could someone help deal with this? Thanks!- Earth Saver (talk) at 06:01, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
