Hi, I would like to request permission for English Wikipedia since whenever I try to do something it is changed by an administrtor and the administrators are not always doing everything perfectly.

Spanish and Catalan Wikinews[edit]

I am requesting sysop access to both the ca and es Wikinews projects. I know neither language, but seeing that both Wikinewses have satirical articles on the Spanish front pages, and in both case are mainspace articles, these projects are clearly are in need of help. I am an admin at the en wikinews, and en/iu wikipedias.

Request denied. December 28 is Feast of the Holy Innocents, which is the Spanish world's equivalent to April Fool's Day, explaining the satirical articles. Bastique 16:17, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
That's no reason for mainspace satire. Unless they explicitly say in their policies that verifiability is not required on a particular day of the year, they are nothing but an shame. -- Zanimum 19:45, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Breton Wiktionary[edit]

Hi, Finally the Breton dictionary is on its way (nearly 200 articles). I am the first Sysop which has been elected on the Breton Wikipedia a year ago and I am now requesting sysop status for the Breton wiktionary (Wikeriadur). I need the status to complete the Interface translation and to clean old pages or pages created by mistakes. We are only two on this new project right now and my colleague has "voted" for me!. If we want to attract more users we have to make it look better. I've also translated many pages to Breton on Commons and Meta since 2005.

Thank you in advance. Fulup 18:15, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, sysop rights granted. But you did not provide a link to your request for adminship, and one voter is hardly enough for election. So it's temporary for three months, but please continue the election and report back when more people voted. Happy editing! MaxSem 18:32, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
Great, thanks. There was no link because we discussed it on our talk pages since there were only the two of us. I've set up an official vote page now, you can go and have a look here. Thanks again. Fulup 21:07, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

I request bureaucrat access. I am an admin on mr as mr:User:अभय नातू

Marathi wikipedia has seen very good growth in the past year or so and that has brought bots, tons of them. Now, Marathi wikipedians are also getting ready to start bots of their own for housekeeping and maintenance tasks. There's no user with bureaucrat access that can flag/control these bots. I'd like to do that.

I have posted an election on marathi wikipedia polls page, with a link on the village pump and waited 7 days for users to log their support/opposition at नामनिर्देशन Bureaucrat Nomination Poll. Please grant me bureaucrat acces.

CheckUser access[edit]

Wikipedia English[edit]

Regarding wikipedia english; I am requesting CheckUser access. I am currently concentrating on clearing as many backlogs as possible, and I believe that CheckUser would be useful for me to continue this trend. CheckUser access would be strictly in line with my personal neutrality policy (link available upon request at my English user account), and the privacy policy of the Wikimedia Foundation. Experience has already been gained in this area - I am a current standby clerk for the Requests for CheckUser page at Wikipedia en.

User:Warszk@plwikibooks[edit]

This user has requested that his rights be removed back in August 2006. Since he didn't know proper procedure, he posted to the local RfA page instead of meta and isn't active right now to correct that. It doesn't seem necessary to make him go through this after so much time, so please just remove the rights. --TOR 17:44, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

I'm an administrator on persian wikipedia. fa:User:Meelad is a proffesional translator and also the main contributor of GNOME translation into persian. I know him very well. Until now he has translated huge number of messages in their talk pages and administrators copied them into main mediawiki namespace so the process was very slow. Being familiar with BetaWiki project, He needs 48 hours for finishing interface translation on persian wikipedia. We always benefited from granting temporary permissions to trusted people on persian wikipedia. Thanks in advance. Hessam 12:43, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Miscellaneous requests[edit]

Wiktionary and Wikiquote Catalan[edit]

I do not know how to request this. If it does not fit here, please say me where it should it be. I would like to request the change of the names of these projects, which currently are in English. This is, when you write {{SITENAME}} in these wikis, it appears "Wiktionary" and "Wikiquote" instead of its Catalan names, and these implies that the namespace "Project:" is also in English. Their Catalan names are these: Wikiquote=Viquidites; and Wiktionary=Viccionary.
