Manual requests

Move User talk:Kty Dexter to User talk:特克斯特/Flow in Chinese Wikipedia

Status:    Done

Dear stewards, can you move User talk:Kty Dexter to User talk:特克斯特/Flow? Because he has changed his username to 特克斯特. --Dabao qian (talk) 18:01, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Why the local administrators can not do this? Ruslik (talk) 19:00, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
Because this is a Flow talk page, only global flow creators can do this.--Dabao qian (talk) 16:59, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
Stewards lack this permission either. So, I can not help you. Ruslik (talk) 19:39, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
Ok, Yes check.svg Done Ruslik (talk) 19:53, 4 March 2017 (UTC)

test.wikipedia.org: request for translation and import rights

Status:    Not done

Is it possible to grant translation administrators rights at test.wikipedia.org? I don't want to do all my testings at Meta and working with sandbox is possible, but sometimes nutty due to namespaces. Additional I want to tryout import of translated content, so I haven't to input all the content for different languages. If import rights are not possible, I can live without it. --Plagiat (talk) 21:06, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

I was blocked in ha.wikipedia for the reason of using multiple accounts by QuiteUnusual. He told me that //You used multiple accounts to try and get an administrator appointed on ha.wiki. I therefore blocked those accounts for abusing editing privileges.// But I was supported my brother, Shrikarsan and we were using a same computer those days. I think QuiteUnusual has blocked me according to the IP address. But please unblock me from that Wikipedia and If you want to verify whether me and and brothers are differnt and not one person, you can see us in this images. Also you can ask the users Mayooranathan, Sivakosaran, Aathavan jaffna, Mathavan, Ravidreams in their talk pages. And you can check my profile and my brothers profile in Facebook also (if needed). So, please unblock me--Shriheeran (talk) 16:26, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

Even though I've heard that before, I have gone ahead and unblocked your account. Please refrain from making it appear there is greater community consensus when it concerns your brother, as you two cannot solely represent the community. Savhñ 12:00, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Unlock user page

Status:    Not done

I'd like to update my user profile on Wikinews NL but it's locked. Could someone please unlock it for me? ---- Redge (Talk) 10:07, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Blank pages on vi.wikibooks.org

Status:    Locally handled

I've filed a request here because the administrators on vi.wikibooks.org haven't been active in the past three months. I've looked through vi.wikibooks and I've observed several pages with 0 bytes (Check out all of them here). I need a global sysop to delete all the blank pages that have been rightfully blanked (not by blanked by a random IP, but blanked by the contributor/editor of whatever page it is). I put in a request in #wikimedia-gs, but alas, no one seemed to respond/act upon my request. Thanks! --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 02:49, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

In addition, there seems to be an ip who randomly blanks some of the pages that have no content (listed in the list I've linked). What action should be taken there? --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 02:54, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
Are you sure that all pages were correctly blanked? Ruslik (talk) 19:16, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
No, which is why I stated: "In addition, there seems to be an ip who randomly blanks some of the pages that have no content (listed in the list I've linked). What action should be taken there?". I feel like reverting all the incorrectly blanked pages would suffice. --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 19:21, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
  • What a weird case, all those IPs are belong to same range, all those subpages of book are belong to same book and it's book about physics, the last seen action from MXN as local sysop is at February, it's better to ask other Vietnamese speaker for it's contents first. Also I couldn't judge if the owner of said IPs are actually same person despite being in the same range, but if it is, this can be deleted as "blanked by author".--AldNonymousBicara? 22:16, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
Would it be wise to list each and every page and their history here? made different request in the comment below --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 22:58, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
dang... over 300+ pages! https://vi.wikibooks.org/w/index.php?title=%C4%90%E1%BA%B7c_bi%E1%BB%87t:Trang_ng%E1%BA%AFn&limit=500&offset=0 Thankfully there are some pages that were blanked by the author of that page (https://vi.wikibooks.org/wiki/%E1%BB%A8ng_D%E1%BB%A5ng_%C4%90i%E1%BB%87n - https://vi.wikibooks.org/wiki/Quang_Tuy%E1%BA%BFn_Ph%C3%B3ng_X%E1%BA%A1_Ph%C3%A2n_R%E1%BA%A3_Nguy%C3%AAn_T%E1%BB%AD_%C4%90i%E1%BB%87n; definately should be more pages) Would it be good to make a folder that documents each and every page to see if we should delete the page or revert the blanker? --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 23:33, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

Why is it that global sysops are not sharing their input here? I'd like for this to be done for. --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 18:21, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

Because it is not clear if these pages should be deleted. Ruslik (talk) 20:36, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
I offered to create a folder [of these pages] and then I asked if that would be useful. --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 18:32, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

I guess this can be resolved. The community and I are working on cleaning up the rubbish that has been added to the vi.wikibooks (including all the blank pages). --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 12:18, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Marked as locally handled, there are local admins managing this.--Syum90 (talk) 09:16, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

Page deletion at NL-wiki

Status:    Done

Can a steward please delete nl:Wikipedia:Links naar doorverwijspagina's/Artikelen? Because the page has more than 5k edits I cannot delete the page myself. The page is listed at the Dutch variant off articles for deletion and in my capacity as local sysop I decided that this page should indeed be deleted. Please use the following deletion rational:

“Per [[Wikipedia:Te beoordelen pagina's/Toegevoegd 20170226]]. Afhandelend moderator: Natuur12”

I know that there is not much input but this is pretty much how it always goes. Someone nominates something, there are no further comments and the closing admin decides if the page should indeed be deleted.

If you need any more information please don’t hesitate to ask me for more information. Thanks in advance. Natuur12 (talk) 18:35, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Done. Matiia (talk) 21:59, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
