Checkuser rights request

Commons

There is an three-week plus vote for the following administrators for Checkuser status at Commons:Administrators:

All three users are very active administrators and have good grasps of policies and procedures. Thank you. User:Bastique ~~ Talk (admin at Commons as well) Bastique 17:21, 19 April 2006 (UTC)

Please note that all three requests didn't reach the minimum of at least 25 supports within more than 3 weeks (normal nomination time on Commons is 1 week). --:Bdk: 19:52, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
Ausir has now reached 25 support votes. Also, note that requests for adminship on the Commons generally get less than 10 votes, so not getting 25 in 3 weeks is hardly surprising. (The last 6 admins to be promoted had 14, 10, 5, 6, and 5 votes, all unanimous.) Dbenbenn 23:33, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
There should be no compromise with CheckUser requests as a matter of principle IMO (the policy was debated in detail, and the minimum number was a part of it). If we don't want to create a precedent by accepting CU requests like this, we really should wait for another better vote sometimes in the future. Of course, you can wait just long enough and you'll crack the "25(-30)" for at least 2 users perhaps in another week, but would that be ok? And please note, that I'm not opposing none of the three users as persons nor CU for Commons generally. But imagine what could happen, if another Wikimedia project, let's say zh.wikipedia asks for CU with a vote of 18 supporters (instead of 20 here and min. 25 given by policy) ... projects where CU normally is seen as a more difficult and perhaps also political issue, and the next project will argue with 17, 16, 15 ... votes and its small community ^^... would you like to tell them, that the Commons vote simply broke ranks? I hope you can follow this consideration, which is thought in a more project wide way, not only focussed on Commons' interests. Anyway, there's no actual problem with not having users with CU access on Commons right now - you can always ask stewards in specific cases.
FTR: At the time of Bastique's above request, Dbenbenn had a number of 20, Arnomane of 21, and Ausir of 23 positive votes, each of them got one opposing vote.
PS: As I said before in some discussions, we definitely do need a clear specification of maximum duration of such votes for the CU policy. --:Bdk: 01:37, 20 April 2006 (UTC)
Just like to point out that there has been significant discussion of extending checkuser rights when the vote cout does not reach 25 users; there is currently a discussion on how to make checkuser available without relaxing standards at Talk:CheckUser Policy.

Finnish Wikipedia

The Finnish Wikipedia has held a two-week vote on our first CheckUser permissions. The voting page is here, and the following people got community consensus:

Hebrew Wikipedia

The Hebrew Wikipedia has decided to enable local CheckUser status. We devised an intricate procedure that will ensure appropriate mutual supervision among the CheckUsers and maximal transparency and visiblity to everyone. We have held a one-week general vote. We held it it in English for the Stewards to understand. You can find it here. The following users were elected for CheckUsers status in the vote:

Please give these users CheckUser status. he:משתמש:Harel 06:26, 21 April 2006 (UTC).

Admin requests

Admins for Wikipedias

nds-nl (Nedersaksisch)

The community voted for admins and sysops, since there isn't yet a bureaucrat we ask someone else to appoint these admins (1 admin and one bureaucrat; see bureaucrat section for details), sysops have a temporary adminship at the moment:

I've tried to assign the right to the users but I get the error Bad interwiki username: Bogus database suffix "nds-nlwiki" --Snowdog 09:54, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

You have to use nds_nl instead. (Both Servien and Steinbach are set to sysops, though it doesn't appear on the log. I assume a developer has done it.) Jon Harald Søby 11:47, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
User:Oscar appointed us as temporary sysops. Servien 11:12, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
and herewith both are officially appointed as sysops, no longer temporary, since there has been a proper vote on this (fyi: no further steward action required: your temporary status now becomes as permanent as the wiki itself) ;-) succes en groetjes! oscar 18:08, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
Pms

I'd like to request sysop status (preferably bureaucrat so other sysops can be appointed later) for the pms Wikipedia (status: approved, setup requested, waiting in queue). Interface translation has started already, will be ready in a few days from now. Thank You! :) bertodsera 13:45, 26 March 2006 (GMT+2)

Could you post a link to the local page where you have requested this? Thanks. (If there is no such page, go ahead and create it!) Jon Harald Søby 10:59, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
No, because we are waiting for the PMS edition to be created by developers, so we have no local pages at all, yet. I actually thought it was better to stand in line early, but probably here things go much quicker than it happens (as I hear) with instance creation :) I'll put in a full request as soon as the instance is up. Thank you! bertodsera 15:25, 26 March 2006 (GMT+2)

Everything is ready! you guys all work really quick :) so here's the request:

May I pls know whether there's anything wrong with this request? We are almost finished with the interface translation, the press is going to announce the pms wiki in a few weeks and we still have no sysops... It might get to be a problem. --Bertodsera 07:58, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
Hi! There's nothing wrong with the request, but we usually wait for a week (and would prefer the request to have some response; you should probably note that on the page). Jon Harald Søby 11:27, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
Ok. I added a note on the local page to call for a public vote. Thanks :) --Bertodsera 12:54, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

Sysop status granted. For bureaucrat status, you should initiate a vote and have decent support. (I take the lack of replies on pdc:Wikipedia:Administrator requests as a sign that there are no objections.) Jon Harald Søby 12:04, 8 April 2006 (UTC)
Thanks. Dischdeldritsch 13:42, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

Can a sysop change the logo? As sysop can I make a logo for the Pennsylvania German Wikipedia? The text would be "Wikipedia: 'S frei Uffguckbichli". Where should I ask? Thanks again. Dischdeldritsch 13:42, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

The community voted for admins and sysops, since there isn't yet a bureaucrat I ask someone else to appoint me as bureaucrat, I have a temporary adminship at the moment:

i have 2 doubts about this request:

  1. the community is still rather small for a bureaucrat to be appointed.
  2. it is in my opinion always better to appoint at least two bureaucrats instead of one on a small wiki.

Hi everyone! I wanted to make a request to become a bureaucrat on the Bosnian Wiktionary. I've checked out if there is one there already and I've found that no user is a bureaucrat on that Wiktionary. I've also found out that there's only one sysop there that does not even have a talk page nor has he made contributions in more than a year (Live Forever's contributions). I am a native speaker of that language (Bosnian). I'm requesting this permission because I've noticed that there are many problems on the main page, such as the navigation links that do not lead anywhere and the structure of that Wiktionary itself. I only have a few contributions on that Wiktionary for right now, however I hope that you will overlook that for right now and will grant me requested status based on my status and contributions on English Wiktionary (I'm a sysop there). --Dijan 02:56, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

Commons:User:Arnomane

There is no "community" on Commons, as Commons is an aggregate of several communities. Therefore the sentence "please gain consensus on this on your own wiki first" cannot apply to Wikimedia Commons.

Arnomane is having an aggressive behaviour by removing French pages without respecting the Commons:Commons:Deletion guidelines, and without trying to discus the issue with the French community beforehand. See also Commons:Commons:Village_pump#Irregular_speedy_deletion_of_Category:Demandes_de_suppression_rapide. I ask the Wikimedia Foundation to enforce the Commons:Commons:Deletion guidelines and to show respect for the minority rights of the French community by removing Arnomane's sysop access.

I disagree. As a sysop on Commons, I think that I can say that there is a community albeit a difficult one to get to do anything as it takes a bit of translation. ;-)
I think that this would best be discussed there.
James F. (talk) 13:32, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
Please ignore this request. I'm a bureaucrat on the Commons (as is Arnomane). We certainly do have a community there. Furthermore, we even have a place to discuss removing sysop access: Commons:Commons:Administrators. Dbenbenn 15:00, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
Removal of access is to be decided by the Commons community before being brought to stewards. villy 05:45, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

cs:User:Dodo

I, cs:User:Dodo, request removal of my sysop rights on cs:wikipedia. Since there are not at the time other sysops active at cs:wikiquote, I'd like to keep my sysop status there as it is. --Dodo 19:00, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Is there anything else I should do cos maybe nobody noticed this request for removal of sysop rights of w:cs:User:Dodo on cs:wikipedia? Thx. --Dodo 05:42, 12 April 2006 (UTC)
Could you confirm on your user page that you wish to be desysopped? Thanks. Jon Harald Søby 10:20, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

Temporary permissions for emergency or technical purposes

On April 9th I gave myself bureaucrat status on lmo.wikipedia and pms.wikipedia to fight back a vandal atack and to rename the vandal because he/she stole my nickname. --Snowdog 09:42, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Today I gave myself temporary sysop status on 18 different Wikipedias, to deal with the "Dragobyte" vandal. Jon Harald Søby 16:37, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Zh-yue Wikipedia

I request temporary sysop status on Zh-yue Wikipedia(粵語維基百科). The reason is to edit pages in the "MediaWiki" and "Special" namespaces for /zh、/zh-cn、/zh-tw、/zh-hk、/zh-sg, Thank you! --Jasonzhuocn16:28, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

As the person who've tried to test the possibility by creating some encyclopedia style articles at Wikicities, I'd also like to apply for temporary sysop status. I myself am a speaker of the language. - CantoneseWiki 18:13, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

请先到zh-yue注册用户,并且最好之前在其他语言版本上做过编辑(请给出用户名),对wikipedia的政策有大致了解再申请--Shizhao 19:42, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

另外,请创建一个wikipedia:管理员页面--Shizhao 19:43, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

I have already registered at zh-yue. With the experience at WikiCities Cantonese, and as a regular reader and occassional editor of a few versions of Wikipedia, I am sure I have the basic understanding of the official policies. - CantoneseWiki 21:21, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
In addition to my previous message, I myself is the founder and sysop of cantonese.wikicites.com. I was responsible for translating, though partially, the interface. - CantoneseWiki 18:53, 26 March 2006 (UTC) (UTC)
Wikicities并不是wikimedia计划的一部分,如果你在wikimedia计划上没有做过一些贡献,很难了解你对wikipedia的认知程度。--Shizhao 07:59, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
I'm the one who kicked off the Cantonese versions at Meta-Wiki, Wikimedia Commons, Wikisource and Wikispecies. My user name is always the same. - CantoneseWiki 21:10, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

I would like to apply for temporary sysop status to translate the initial set-up of the Cantonese Wikipedia. My username is the same as in English Wikipedia, namely HenryLi, and other wikipedia. I'm regular reader and editor of English wikipedia. I translate some articles from Chinese wikipedia into English and make cross references between two. HenryLi 22:57, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

Currently holding about 4300 edits in English Wikipedia and 100 edits in Chinese Wikipedia, and as a native speaker of Cantonese, I believe I'm certainly capable for this job though I've never been a sysop on Wikimedia projects. --Deryck Chan 00:12, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

I would like to apply for the temporary sysop privillege to setup the initial contents for the Project page and Help page, and remove the pages that are copyvio-ed. And need to setup the initial policies and guildlines for the zh-yue Wikipedia. My user page at Zh-yue is zh-yue:User:Shinjiman and currently I have 2717 edits at en_wikipedia and 5915 edits at zh_wikipedia. Also, as a native Cantonese user, I will help to translate some articles and the templates into Cantonese. thanks --Shinjiman 02:25, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
