X mark.svg Not done it is imo really too soon to have a bureaucrat on ur: at this point - at the moment there is only one sysop: you. the mediawiki interface has not been translated yet, the recent changes do not show an active community yet [3], etc. the first thing the project needs is more active sysops, elected from a larger community of active (native-language) contributors. oscar 07:36, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia Scots[edit]

I have been a Wikipedian since 2001 and I am an administrator on the English Wikipedia, an administrator and co-founder of the Scots Wikipedia and a bureaucrat on the Scots Gaelic Wikipedia. Once again I am requesting bureaucrat access on sco.wikipedia for sco:User:Mendor. This was previously refused because we are too small despite unanimous support for him and despite the fact that size has is only loosely correlated with level of activity or the need for a bureaucrat. However we have been swamped by bots for the last few months and can do nothing about them because we lack a bureaucrat. It is essential that we have one. Thus I am making this request again:

Thanks -- Derek Ross 22:09, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

You can block users as an administrator, too, and both of you seem to be active (sco:Special:Listusers/sysop). As explained on bureaucrats, a bureaucrat does only have the ability to grant bot status, sysop & bureaucrat status and can rename users. At the moment, there seems to be no special need for that; if such things are required, you can ask here. I'd recommend you to make a vote, as far as I can see there has not been a bureaucrat vote for you yet. Greetings, —Pill δ 05:50, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
I understand that I can block people but the bots do useful work so I don't particularly want to block them. They just need to be hidden and there definitely is a need for that as you can confirm if you look at the recent changes for the last few weeks. -- Derek Ross 19:03, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
I've understood so far but nevertheless you could make a vote for bureaucratship, I guess. The interwiki bots that are operating right now should be granted bot status, but I don't think this is really urgent so you should make a new vote. Greetings, —Pill δ 20:33, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
I don't mean to be difficult and I completely agree that the need for a bureaucrat is not urgent but I must point out that I have already organised a vote, received unanimous support for the candidate, and still been refused (because, apparently, the Scots Wikipedia is "too small"). Nothing much has changed on the Scots Wikipedia in the intervening period, so if I organise another vote, and receive unanimous support for the candidate again, I doubt that we will have any more participants in the vote than last time. Thus I would expect that once again we would be refused. Even if we were to have more participants than last time, I have no idea what the minimum number is supposed to be (because none has been specified on this page). Yet the need for a bureaucrat on the Scots Wikipedia, urgent or not, still persists. In this situation is it really surprising that I wish to appeal to the common sense of the stewards rather than relying on a process which has proven to be time-consuming, arbitrary and unpredictable when I have tried to follow it to the letter on a previous occasion ? -- Derek Ross 05:45, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
Required number of votes for bureaucrat elections is fixed by the local project community, very small projects often do not even have a minumum number of votes required for granting the status, the decision whether the candidate is given the status required is made by the stewards then. Nevertheless, since community seems to be quite small so far, possibly he will be granted (temporary) bureaucrat status. —Pill δ 14:50, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
So what's the status on this request?drini 21:55, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Please hold a new election to make sure consensus has not changed. Bureaucrat access will be granted promptly upon confirming consensus, barring no unforeseen circumstances. Thanks. —{admin} Pathoschild 22:21, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia Kapampangan[edit]

I request bureaucrat access for pam:User:Katimawan2005 and pam:User:Val2397 on pam.wikipedia. The Kapampangan Wikipedia has neither sysops nor bureaucrats. These users are native speakers of Kapampangan. pam:User:Katimawan2005 is the one who proposed this project and pam:User:Val2397 is one of the most active contributors to this project. Here is the other relevant information:

Thank you. Harvzsf 01:05, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

The bureaucrat flag enables a user to appoint sysops and bots, but it does not automatically imply the activation of sysop functions for the user him/herself. I suggest these users to be given a sysop access first. --Paginazero - Ø 12:58, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
Please obtain consensus clarifying whether these users should be granted administrator access as well. There is no precedent to my knowledge of users having bureaucrat access without administrator access, and a potential conflict of interest may arise if they wish to give themselves this access without a clarification that there is consensus to do so. —{admin} Pathoschild 06:35, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
Just for the record, there were cases in which bureaucrat flag was granted without admin one with the mention that they can give themselves. There were not so many cases, but usualy for small wikis electing for bureaucrat involve adminship, but - at least myself - when I was granting for bureaucrat-elected only bureaucrat flag granted. I repeat, not so many cases. -Romihaitza 15:53, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Please, please, no. Don't let English-speaking people tell you how you should write your name. That's really sad. guillom 15:00, 20 December 2006 (UTC)
I agree. The English Wikipedia will have to change their policies anyways, because of SUL, so you should rather ask them to change your username there back to っ. Jon Harald Søby 15:03, 20 December 2006 (UTC)
I believe that the SUL process will be clever enough to spot if you create an account on enwiki with the same email address. Try doing that, and when SUL arrives and you get a query as to which account you want to use, reply accordingly ;-) FWIW, we currently have people with accounts named in Japanese, as far as I know, and they seem to work out OK. HTH HAND —Phil | Talk 15:10, 20 December 2006 (UTC)
I've left a message on your talk page at en and the request at Commons. As well as begun a debate on en.wikipedia now. Bastique 15:10, 20 December 2006 (UTC)
Thank you for your kindness. -- 01:06, 21 December 2006 (UTC)
I'm trying to get the guideline changed on en.wikipedia. Please don't change this username on every other wiki, just because en guidelines are broken. Kim Bruning 22:00, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

I'm not really sure how RfP works here, but I oppose the username change, as this case has exceptional circumstances: the enwiki policy has to be changed. Titoxd(?!?) 22:05, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

I propose that a steward declairs to suspend this request until the community agree on reopening. And I ask the global community not to process relevant requests on their wikis. As Japanese Wikinews admin I asked him to let me do nothing for a while and he nodded. I believe he is not unhappy to see his request placed in epoche. --Aphaia 23:13, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

Please also consider the amount of work involved for a steward to to process this request:

  1. make an account on all these wikis with the captcha on
  2. change user rights here on meta for that account to make that user there bureaucrat
  3. do the rename of that account on that wiki
  4. change user rights back to user for that account
  5. ... and this for all those wikis. Fun :-(

--Walter Do you have news? Report it to Wikizine 01:11, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

No user but the one making the request should have any direct input (i.e. 'support' or 'oppose') into a username change request, except in the case of a disruptive user or vandal or other such. For routine cases this is entirely the user's own decision. Furthermore, the stewards' opinions on the enwiki policy are not relevant to the performance of steward duties, and we cannot deny requests solely because we disagree with a local policy. Walter's objections are much more to the point: this is an enormous quantity of work for what amounts to one user's convenience. On that basis I will not fulfil this request. I have no opposition to it in principle, as long as the user himself still wants the change and can find a willing steward. — Dan | talk 03:35, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

While true, this request is due to a problem with en. If there was no problem, then the user would likely not have made the request, right?
We're working on fixing the problem on en, and my personal apologies for the trouble. Kim Bruning 15:54, 22 December 2006 (UTC)
On Japanese Wikipedia, he complained his username change had been actually compulsory to other editors who could hardly have believe Enwiki had enforced such policy unilaterally. You may find this at ja:Project talk:ユーザー名#英語版Wikipediaで非ラテン文字を含む名前のアカウントをお持ちの方へ. (Section: Notice for editors whose username on English Wikipedia contains non-Latin characters). There was no responce for two months, and I suspect if someone would have been aware of his complaint, he wouldn't have come to this page in this way. Aphaia 16:22, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

Is there any possibility to discuss this in another page? We are trying to follow the conclusions. If everybody starts talking here, we'll never answer quickly to thowse who really request something to stewards. More, there is a notice at the beggining of the page stating clearly that discutions are forbiden here. -Romihaitza 18:34, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

Sure, how about Requests for comments subpage? Or just Talk:Requests for permissions. --Aphaia 04:52, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Wiktionary Finnish[edit]

The Finnish wiktionary requests CheckUser status. I apologize that this request is a bit verbous and detailed, but I try to explain the reason behind the length of this request.

Background
Fi.wiktionary has pbeen pested by a devouted vandal (Levykevandaali), who has vandalized all Finnish language Wikimedia project: Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikiquote, Wikisource, and Wiktionary. In fi.wikipedia, where I am an admin, the only workable solution has been the use of CheckUser information – quickly (asking help from stewards would be too slow to be effective).
Stage 1 – suggestion
Knowing the situation in fi.wikipedia, I suggested that we apply for CheckUsership in fi.wiktionary Village pump, "Kahvihuone". The result of the poll was 12 in favour, 0 against. [4] Already at this point we knew that there aren't 25 of us, which is the reason for all this explaining. That is why I asked this question: Talk:CheckUser policy#CheckUser with greater consensus, less voters.
Stage 2 – voting
An approval voting lasting for 2 weeks was arranged to select 2–3 CheckUsers [5]. To be approved, one would have to get 75 % approval and one was not allowed to vote for oneself or put oneself forward as a candidate. It was also agreed unanimously that the community would ask for CheckUsership even if 25 votes wasn't cast.
If more than 3 people was to get more than 75 % approval, clear rules were set on how to resolve the order of candidates.
Stage 3 – results
15 people turned up to vote. Only three active users (two weren't active during this period) did not vote. The results are as follows [6]:
  User For Against Approval rate (abstained) (approval among all who voted for any candidate)
1. Hartz 11 0 100 % 3 79 %
1. Samulili 11 0 100 % 3 79 %
3. Aulis Eskola 9 0 100 % 5 64 %
4. Skorpion87 5 4 56 % 5 36 %
Request for permission
We are painfully aware that the formal limit for approval is set to 25 votes. However, we ask that you consider the logic behind this number, rather than the number itself. On the talk page [7] Anthere explained the logic: "CheckUser is an important stuff, it is important that the tool is not given by anyone asking for it and supported by his 3 buddies." No one can disagree with this. But one can ask, whether the limit should be at 25 or maybe lower. Grin suggested 10 users (ibid.). The discussion on the number of votes stopped there and I'm not sure if it has been discussed anywhere else.
Another uncontestable argument put forward by anthere was the size, and maybe age, maturity, of a project. Fi.wiktionary is the 12th largest wiktionary project which has dedicated and experienced users.
In the light of all of the above, the community of fi.wiktionary asks the stewards of Wikimedia to consider giving Hartz, Samulili and Aulis Eskola CheckUser privileges. Sincerely, Samulili 21:55, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
Given the explanation reported by Samulili, I'm personally for granting the requested C.U. flags. Should this not happen, I remind fi.wiktionary people that on-line stewards can be quickly contacted via the dedicated IRC channel. --Paginazero - Ø 11:17, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

The reason for my request is that the Kalaallisut Wikipedia attracts English speaking spammers and Danish speaking vandals with no one to clean up afterwards. I have unsuccessfully tried to get in touch with the apparently former kl: sysop, and the user base at large. My local request for sysop permissions resulted in only one reply (positive), from a user with a basic knowledge of Kalaallisut - hence I fear there are no users left with Kalaallisut as their first language.

Unfortunately I don't understand Kalaallisut myself, but this is not needed to fight the majority of spam/vandalism on kl:. My local sysop request was in Danish, which is an official language in Greenland, understood by most of the population. If granted, I will of course limit my sysop work to activities not requiring Kalaallisut language skills.

On a temporary basis I've twice been given sysop permissions, but in order to save time when fighting spam and vandalism, I'd like to be given sysop permissions on a permanent basis. However, it is my hope that a Kalaallisut Wikipedia free of spam and vandalized pages will attract new users (I have an idea for this), some of whom I can teach the skills and then step down myself.

Sysop experience: Since 30 January 2004 I've been a sysop on the Danish language version of Wikipedia, where I'm also a bureaucrat.

Wikipedia Kapampangan[edit]

I request sysops access for pam:User:Katimawan2005 and pam:User:Val2397 on pam.wikipedia. The Kapampangan Wikipedia has neither sysops nor bureaucrats. These users are native speakers of Kapampangan. pam:User:Katimawan2005 is the one who proposed this project and pam:User:Val2397 is one of the most active contributors to this project. There is a consensus in the Kapampangan Wikipedia that these users be given bureaucrat status and a request for bureaucrat status for these users has also been requested (see below this page in the Bureaucrats requests subsection for the bureaucrat access request). However, it was suggested that these users be given sysops status first. Hence I'm also filing this concurrent request for sysops access for the said users. Here is the other relevant information:

Looks good, now a matter of waiting a bit. There is also one other sysop there; w:enUser:Zanimum, it a very small wiki there. You could ask him to vote. If you are requesting sysop status to make a translation of the wiki interface, see also the BetaWiki-project. That is a project for making a neutral MediaWiki translation that then will be default for all wikis. That is more useful than making only a local translation. You can ask questions in the IRC channel or in the mailing list of MediaWiki translation. --Walter Do you have news? Report it to Wikizine 11:36, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

I see that the project has a community of 41 users (at the time of this post). Considering the nature of Bureaucrat tools, it is indeed difficult to see a need for a local Bureaucrat at this point. You should, however, appoint one more Administrator; mostly because if you have one, it is best to have two, since administrative actions for the most part can only be undone by another administrator.

Removal of access[edit]

Wikibooks English[edit]

According to the defined policy at en.wikibooks, sysops with extreme amounts of inactivity will have their rights removed. This policy was applied on 21 November and after 30 days action should be taken (that day is today). Consensus was achieved with the enforcement of the policy, as well as specific discussion of the sysops being removed here. The following users should have their sysop rights removed:

In addition, the first three users listed above were bureaucrats and need those tools removed as well (although I believe this process achieves both).
