Checkuser rights request

I am here to request check-user permissions for wikibooks:User:Derbeth. He has received 26 votes from people in our community since the start of the vote. He is also an active and exemplary vandal fighter, with whom our project has had no problems. We were trying to start a vote to find a second user worthy of check-user permissions, but agreeing on a good second candidate is a slow process (but we can all agree on wikibooks:User:Derbeth). We would like this user to gain the permissions ASAP, because we have had an influx of suspected sockpuppetry, especially on our VfD votes.

Thanks. --Whiteknight 16:48, 15 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Request on hold There is now no checkuser on your wiki. According to policy (CheckUser#Access) there must be at least 2 checkusers or none. --Walter 13:44, 17 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Okay, we were able to get a second user with 25 votes. I would like to re-request checkuser rights for Wikibooks:User:Derbeth, and request checkuser rights for Wikibooks:User:Whiteknight. Both candidates have received 25 votes or more on the local RFA page

desysoping at Serbian Wikpedia

User:Славен Косановић (Slaven Kosanović in Latin), an administrator and bureaucrat has been forced to block himself for abusing admin powers (discussed here). He has done so, and blocked himself for 3 months (link) as a preliminary measure to the removal of Admin powers; under strict rules not to unblock himself.

After 7 hours, he has indeed unblocked himself (link), and stated that he changed his mind (link). I request for his admin powers to be removed. Thank you. --WIKI SERBIA 01:15, 6 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]

I can not grant this request. You do not indicate who you are. I can not find a user "WikiSerbia" on sr-wiki. I can not read anthing there. 1) indicate who you are and linkt to your userpage 2) write on a suitable page on the also in English that you request de-sysoping of this user. Make a saperation between sysops, bureacratas and users and ask some of them to support this. When I know who is requesting it and that it gets support by serious people of your wiki then I can desysop that user.--Walter 09:53, 6 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
First of all, I have given the neccessary links for the reasons on why this user needs to be desysoped. He had to block himself for 3 months (in the block reason, he himself has listed: "троловање пројекта и позивање на лични рат" (translation: "trolling of the project, and calling for a personal war")). We did not have a vote, because he didn't want one, and agreed to block himself for 3 months (but was basically forced, I have also provided a link), under the strict rules not to unblock himself. He has unblocked himself, I have provided links. Now, the question is whether you want us to go through a lengthy process of removing his powers through voting, or just remove his powers, as has been agreed. Furthermore, I do not see the reason for listing my identity, I am just the messenger, the links are here to demonstrate what we are requesting. If you want confirmation from other administrators, I will request for them to do that here, thank you. :) --WIKI SERBIA 17:42, 6 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
We have been waiting for a while, if there is noone to do what is requested, I propose we close this case. --WIKI SERBIA 20:01, 8 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done I have enough of this trying to explain this to you. The status of sr:Корисник:Славен Косановић is changed to user. If your request was invalid then you have many bureacrats who can restore his user rights. --Walter 21:46, 10 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
A trusted Serbian bureaucrat (Filip Maljkovic) told me that this request was invalid. I restored bureaucrat/sysop status of sr:Корисник:Славен Косановић. Ausir 22:35, 10 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]

I am Filip Maljkovic and I'd like to say something on this matter: Boris was recently desysopped and this can be seen as his vendetta: He's just made an account Slaven Kosanović but there existed a genuine account Slaven Kosanovic (notice the ASCII c) which is way older. WikiSerbia is, of course, Boris which can be easily proven with the checkuser tool. Moreover, Boris gathered a couple of his confidants to "confirm" the allegations. Whereas these allgations might be true (I still haven't read the whole discussion), the desysopping procedure should have started at sr: wikipedia, if at all, and not here. Thank you --Filip (§) 23:07, 10 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]

There are at least two issues here. Original, concerning Slaven Kosanovic who has blocked himself (after a fierce discussion in Serbian wiki concerning his past behaviour) and then unblocked himself after few hours. There is three confirmation of that fact (not counting SerbianWiki who reported about that issue), and there is no any doubt that that has happened. It is beyond any dispute and that could confirm Dungodung and every user of Serbian Wiki. That's why Slaven was desysoped by Walter. Boris action (pretending to be Slaven) is completely another issue, not endorsed by other (myself, Verlor, FEAR) who confirmed Slaven history of blocking and unblocking himself. I suggest that those issues should be splited. --Manojlo 19:42, 11 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
There was no discussion - let alone agreement of either kind - on srwiki about Slaven's actions. What I as an admin/checkuser on srwiki can confirm is 1) that the whole charade was preceded by desysoping of the user posing here as "Wiki Serbia" and a long, heated and devastating debate that followed, 2) that Slaven was most certainly not forced to block himself, 3) that he as a consequence was not obliged not to unblock himself nor to do or not do anything else, 4) that srwiki has no established penalties for admins who unblock themselves, and (what is perhaps most obvious of all) 5) that this Meta request was made in bad faith. I suggest that this discussion, if deemed needed by some of our editors, be first taken to our local village pump. Thank you. --Dzordzm 23:21, 11 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
I have confirmed that sr:Корисник:Бормалагурски, User:WikiSerbia and User:Slaven Kosanović have indeed edited from the same IP. Both meta accounts have been blocked. Ausir 23:37, 10 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Wikipedia Incubator & Meta

I request temporary admin rights on the Wikipedia Incubator and the Wikimedia Meta-wiki because of moving the test-wp pages to the Incubator for several reasons:

  • the test-wp pages on Meta have already been moved, but new ones are coming here - instead of Incubator. This needs to be solved quickly (eg. move the pages and delete them from Meta) because of growing mess.
  • on Incubator, there has been a new proposal to change the name formats of the testwikis, and several testwikis have already moved; there's a need to unify the name formats and delete the useless redirects
  • there are some pages in the deleteme category in the Incubator
  • the only current admin of Incubator is Brion, who stated he doesn't have interest in the Incubator issues.

Latin Wikibooks

I request sysop access on la.wikibooks:

To be honest the Latin Wikibooks is in a shambles, and I want to be able to fix it all up. This Administrator request is mainly because almost none of the MediaWiki messages are translated, and this needs urgent doing. Also, there are currently no users with any status on the project.

Thank you very much. -b:la:Usor:Dbmag9

Usually for localization work a temporary adminship is granted. How about two months for customizing the interface?
Should in the meantime a regular votation take place, the adminship can be made permanent. --Paginazero 08:25, 29 May 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Zulu Wikipedia

I request temporary sysop access on zu.wikipedia:

  • Language Code: zu
  • Local Request Link: none
  • Local User Page: zu:User:Jose77

I intend to translate the Zulu interface from English to Zulu.

I have managed to obtain a list of zulu words here (with the help of a native speaker).

Thankyou very much. --Jose77 03:51, 26 July 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Tempory sysop status granted. Expires on 2006-10-26. Please also look at the BetaWiki-project. That is for making a neutral MediaWiki translation that then will be default for all wikis. Making the default Zulu translation is more usefull then only local on the zu.wikipedia Support irc:// or --Walter 12:29, 26 July 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Turkish Wikipedia

I request temporary sysop access on tr.wikipedia:

  • Language Code: tr
  • Local Request Link: none
  • Local User Page: User:Cool Cat

There is ongoing vandalism and all admins seem to be away. I'd like to have admin access for a day (more like half a day until admins show up) to deal with a few persistant vandals.
