Administrator access

Chrisportelli@mtwikipedia

I request for my adminship on mt.wiki. It's the second time I'm nominating myself for this wiki and I wish if a day I would acquire this right. On mt.wiki, although contributors are not that active, we still need an admin which can assist our work. The two "active" admins have made their last action on mt.wiki about a month ago, while Srl has been out for about nine months. I wish to receive any feedback; this wiki cannot continue without any active admin. Thanks. Chrisportelli 11:11, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Hello Chrisportelli, I agree that the wiki needs an active admin. However we can't grant You adminship if there is no support of the community. I would normally have proposed You now a temporary-status but some things should be resolved first:
  • the local bureaucrat was active one month ago (that is not so long ago), he should be contacted first
  • why did he and others oppose Your last rfa?
Thanks, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 14:08, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
In the last rfa the admins thought that an admin wasn't needed atm on the wiki. Although they had been away only for about a month, they still have their duties to serve on the wiki. Chrisportelli 15:35, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, I understand, I wrote an email to both bureaucrats, I think they should be given at minimum a week to respond, if they don't I would propose You a temporary sysop status to maintain the wiki until the community grows again, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 16:43, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Closing this as not done, because at least one crat I have contacted answered. The status will be granted locally now that a local bureaucrat is aware of the voting, he might chose to wait some days still, but that is a local decision now.
Thanks and best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 19:20, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Alifshinobi@thwiktionary

Thai Wiktionary need an active user to be an admin --Watcharakorn 13:49, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Hello, I agree that th.wikt needs an active admin. The voting started today, and I would therefore suggest either: to keep it open at least a week to grant others to vote there, or if the community is too small for votings (looking at the recent changes this seems to be the case) we could grant him a temporary sysop access for 3 months (note this is technically the same, he just drops us a note here a few days before the status expires to prolong it). Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 13:58, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done, expires: 17-02-2009 please remember to translate the interface at betawiki: only and to upload images preferably to commons:, please come back a few days before the status expires to prolong it, I think this can be made infinit after this 3 months period if the situation in this discussion does not change or changes in favor of Alifshinobi, thanks, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 13:49, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

DavidWS@simple.wt

The following discussion is closed.

I have filed a local request at simple WT, but there is not much of a community to gain consensus. I have one !oppose vote...from the person who nominated the project for closure. I agree that I'm very new to this particular project, however, it is in danger of being closed and I do not want to see that happen. If I am not trusted enough to be granted +sysop fulltime, maybe temporary just so I can delete encyclopedic entries and vandal entries. Thank you! DavidWS 06:49, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

American Eagle@Simple English Wikiquote

This is a strange request, for we have a Bureaucrat at Simple English Wikiquote. I don't think this was closed as right, for all opposers were drive-by and every active user supported. I do trust Coppertwig as a b'crat, but I want this to be reviewed and have a Steward look it over and give a final decision for us. Thank you. American Eagle (talk) 01:17, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Hello, the local crat has the final say, we only 'improvise' when there is no local one ;) - so, sorry, there will be no final decision from the stewards, thanks for Your understanding, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 01:27, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Re-opening the request (Spacebirdy said it was OK to add this): This is actually a request from me, the only bureaucrat at Simple English Wikiquote. I would like to find a steward who will volunteer to review my closing of this RfB. I would ask another bureaucrat on the project to do this if there were any. Since the candidate asserts that I didn't close it right, I would like a steward to review it and to either endorse or overturn my closing.(23:38, 7 November 2008 (UTC)) By the way, the earlier part of the page history of the RfB is at Wikiquote:Administrators. Thank you for considering this request. Coppertwig 00:48, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Hey Coppertwig. If the project requests assistance from Meta, it can certainly be given, but we do try to avoid pushing decisions onto projects. You might want to ask the next three stewards that happen upon this section (as an example) to do a review of your closing and offer opinions to you and the simple.wikiquote community regarding said closing. This way, you can get unbiased opinions from globally trusted individuals without sacrificing local autonomy. Kylu 02:29, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for the suggestion, Kylu. OK, how about doing it this way: I would like two stewards to do reviews of my closing and post opinions in the community discussion or on my SEWQ talk page if they prefer. Then I and the community can take those opinions into account. Coppertwig 23:38, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Two stewards needed for opinions regarding the closing, per above statement. Thanks. Kylu 00:49, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
This is a slightly irregular request, but so long as it's clear that we're only giving advice and not making decisions, I see no harm in it. It looks to me as though Coppertwig made the right decision. There's nothing "drive-by" about the opposition -- both Microchip08 and Djsasso participated in multi-turn conversations in response to American Eagle's comments, so it's not as though they voted and disappeared. I see no reason to disenfranchise them. I'd have done just what Coppertwig did. — Dan | talk 05:18, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Thank you very much, Rdsmith4 and Dungodung. This can be closed now, as two stewards have given opinions (Rdsmith4 (Dan) above, and Dungodung at SEWQ. Coppertwig 13:38, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Shijualex@Malayalam Wikisource

--Jacob 02:34, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

I had some trouble deciphering which section of the discussion page was the 'crat election, I am sorry to say. Can someone give me some pointers to the section I should check? Thanks. ++Lar: t/c 02:20, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Translation added. --Jacob 18:57, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Thank you Jacob. This wiki appears to only have 3 sysops: [1] and it already has one 'crat: [2] although Peringz appears not to be active for a while now... at least 2 of the 10 supporters of Shijualex appear to have supported Shijualex as their only contribution to this wiki. This wiki may not yet be active enough for another local 'crat. Let me consult with my fellow stewards (or they could also comment here). Sorry for the delay. ++Lar: t/c 21:57, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
First, ml.wikisource is an active wikisource. I believe this page doesn't offer a true comparison of the level of activity due to the issue cited here. Still, it is among the top 30 Wikisources when ranked by total no. of pages in wiki. Second, Malayalam wikipedia has the 3rd largest depth among wikipedias that have at least 1000 articles. Considering the level of "activity" (including the level of vandalism — to prevent which I bug you folks in IRC), I feel Malayalam Wiki projects have been quite conservative in granting sysop status; wikisource is no exception. Wikisource doesn't need as many sysops as a wikipedia needs - due to lesser need for maintainance. Third we need an active bureaucrat.
Not to divert the focus of discussion, but just FYI, each of those voters with lesser contributions are active in ml.wikipedia. You may confirm their activity using SUL Tool. --Jacob 02:00, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Very helpful clarification. Let me consult further. Again, sorry for the delay. ++Lar: t/c 14:44, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
With the above said, I'm inclined to accept the request but will give some time (at least 48 hours) to other stewards to comment. --Daniel Mayer 15:32, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

I informed the user about this request per email. Just now I have got an answer where the user declares she agrees fully with this. I can forward this mail to OTRS if somebode want to see it, but it is in Czech. -jkb- 17:41, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Can't you just ask the user to make a tiny edit on cswikisource confirming she doesn't want her rights anymore? Otherwise, you can fw her email at stewards(_AT_)wikimedia.org. --FiliP × 09:04, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Oh well, sure, I'll do, but this is a request due to inactivity... :-), But I've just sent you the mail to otrs. -jkb- 09:56, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

See here, thanks, -jkb- 11:18, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

There is no rule on s:cs: that longer inactivity is a reason for removing the rights. There is no consensus for obligatory removal of the rights in this case nor in any general user's inactivity case. -jkb- did not consult this step on wiki with anybody.
Danny B. 14:53, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

I do not have to consult sonething when the user agrees with it. This is in the confirmation, and it is also the sense in the email I forwarded to stewards. Secondly, Danny_B., beside that you do not have to say anything on the domain acording to your contributions, some one year ago you requested desysop for somebody else on a Czech project, without beeing there a sysop, and without informed about this step the active bureaucrat.

Thank You Kanonkas, I have seen that later today, however, the user should give the confirmation link himself, or he can even sign this if logged to a SUL-account, we do confirm users via centralAuth too, but searching for confirmation links ourselves usually not (even less in removals, in requests for permissions I help the user linking to the local site if I find that).

According to the de-adminship policy of Chinese Wikipedia, if a sysop/bureaucrat hasn't edited wikipedia for six months, he/she could be requested to remove the authority. And if there is still no edits for the next month, he/she will be released from duty. Bureaucrat Yacht has been requested to de-adminship for one month, and there is still no edits. So please remove his bureaucrat and sysop status. Thank you! --PhiLiP 16:56, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

  • List of local bureaucrats: q:hr:Special:Listusers/bureaucrat (none)
  • Local User Page: q:hr:User:Dalibor Bosits (sys hr.wiki)

Thank you. Dalibor Bosits 18:13, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Hello, I have seen that Treecko was active recently (end of last month), also that there are other active users in that wiki, therefore I would like to see a local request too, in case someone would like to object. Also I saw in hr.wiki, that You translated some interface messages [10], therefore I would like to use this also as a reminder to translate the interface at betawiki: only (where You would be most welcomed, if You want to help out). Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:26, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
hi ;), Treecko is sporadicaly active, and other two admins not at all; there are only two active users in the last 30 days, and one of them is only changing categories, there is no in fact active comunity. This with mw mess. was just to fix some things, i'm regular contributor to betawiki, but thanks for invitation ;). Can i get sysopaccess for removing vandalism? Thanks ;) --Dalibor Bosits 18:41, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Hello, thanks for the answer, glad to hear You are at betawiki :) Please open a local link though, I explain my reasoning for insisting to You: some users are "active" there, also a sysop sometimes drops by, if there is no local announcement they could (imho rightly) claim that they did not know and complain... At the moment I can't see no emergency there, so announcing this in the village pump and waiting some days would not harm, but backup Your status there, thanks for Your understanding, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:57, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Snakesteuben@fy Wikibooks

I request temporary sysop access on the West Frisian wikibooks.

We have no sysop on the site. Tasks: broken sidebar links, pages in the wrong place to move and delete.

Folks, since I'm the only human who has contributed in the past month is it truly necessary for me to wait a week? (I'm scared to upload pictures on any site with no admin, just in case I mess up and get the wrong copy without adequate copyright info. So I'd have to wait a week on testing/developing a new project I just now started, too.)

Thanks much! Snakesteuben 14:35, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

No, waiting one week is not necessary (only for permanent sysop requests, in wikis with small communities where others are active as well it is also wise to wait a while to allow the others express their opinion).

Hello Thuvack, there is no voting and the community seems too small.

To say the truth, there are only 3 active users in Tibetan wiki including me (and only one of them can speak Tibetan).

Hi. I'm Alison, aka w:en:User:Alison, sysop from gawiki and gawikti. There is currently no sysop over on gdwikti yet there's still a lot of work to do.
