Administrator access

Adminship request for Wikisource on Macedonian

Hello, I am not quite familiar with the process of making request here, so I am asking some of the stewards to explain me how can I get administratorship in the Wikisource on Macedonian? I am admin on the Macedonian Wikipedia and I have decided to reorganize and fix the Wikisource on Macedonian since it is in bad condition. There are no admins and in order to fix it I need that rights. Regards--MacedonianBoy 12:43, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello MacedonianBoy, please make a local announcement on mk.wikisource to inform locals and give them the chance to object (e.g. in the village pump or if there is none on the main-page-talkpage. After ~1week make a request on srp, if there is no local community or if it is too small, that is no problem, we can grant You temporary adminship for 3 months then, which is technically the same (don't worry) and which can be prolonged of course. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:48, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
There is no community at Wikisource, thats why I am writing here. That is the problem that I am facing with, the community that edits on Wikisource is too small and they are basically people that accidentally have the materials and put them as they are, without any corrections and such things. What should I do next?--MacedonianBoy 12:51, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
As an example of the small community, you can see only my edits there on the resent changes and my new design for the Main Page. People that are editing on the Macedonian Wikisource prefer to edit on the Macedonian Wikipedia and they rarely visit the Wikisource.--MacedonianBoy 12:54, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Yes, no worries, as said, that is no problem, just open a local announcement about You wanting to get adminrights there, just in case someone is reading mk.wikisource or rarely contributing we always ask for local requests too, because locals should not be excluded from the process, and then after about one week open a request on srp and You will be granted temp adminship for 3 months, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:55, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
OK, I will make a request for a full adminship and after a while I will inform you. Regards--MacedonianBoy 12:57, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
(note: copied from talkpage to requestpage: [1] --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 10:47, 6 May 2009 (UTC))
The voting looks fine to me for permanent adminship, all pro-voters (4) have contributions over a longer timespan the opposer has only 3 contributions 1st one was the oppose, but 4:1 is ok. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 11:24, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
Therefore Yes check.svg Done. --Thogo (talk) 11:26, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Wyvernoid@iowikt

Only one user (the current only administrator) commented so far, but iowikt has few active users anyway. Also, the current administrator (Artomo), who is adept at the language Ido but not really experienced with the MediaWiki system, needs assistance in wiki managing. Wyvernoid 09:37, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello Wyvernoid and thanks for your helping but voting just begun 1 day ago and there is just only support and 1 vote is not enough for permanent adminship .please hold the RFA at least for one week (though i suggest two weeks) then make another request here .Also you can request for temporary adminship which is technically same as permanent adminship and it is more suitable for wikis without lots of active users --Mardetanha talk 09:48, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
Hello, please note that the interface should only be translated on betawiki:, if You wish to help translating the interface to Ido please register an account there, create an userpage and request translator status at betawiki:Betawiki:Translator, see also betawiki:Translating:How to start, many thanks, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:26, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for paying attention. @Mardetanha: As I said, there aren't a lot of users active on iowikt and they probably will just focus on editing instead of even taking a look at the community portal. But of course I can wait some more time. @birdy-geimfyglið: I don't really intend to just edit the interface (since I do have an account at betawiki), but there are a lot of other things like sidebar, site css/js and so on that need to be edited. Wyvernoid 09:55, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
Alright this sounds perfect, we just wait for one week to make it fair if anyone would like to object (which is not expected, but just in case). You don't need to make another request we just leave this one here open, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 09:11, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done, expires: 06-08-2009 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 or hold a local voting if the community grows, thanks, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 11:28, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

seha@bs.wikiquote

I would like to request a temporary adminship for bs.wiqiquote for reverting vandalism. At the moment there are no active ´crats and admins. If possible shorter than 3 months, if not I would request changing of rights when I have done it. Thank you! --Seha 21:04, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Hello Seha, please can You make a local announment (for example in the village pump, community portal, mainpage talkpage) so local users could object to this request and add a link to it here, if no one objects I don't see a problem with a temporary period of three months, which can be prolonged of course or made permanent if the community grows and a local voting would be held. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 20:55, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
Yes I can. But there will be no answer :). The ´crat who have been active is not longer aactive, even at bs.wiki. The admins have gone. User Pearl who was the last active admin is also gone (as i can see on recent changes). Thats the only reason I need it. I have start manualy, and there are just some pages to delete. If you have time to help me, I don´t need the admin. I can put the deleting template and you can delete it. Best regards --Seha 21:04, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
Ich dachte mir schon, den Namen kenne ich von wo, also lieber auf Deutsch. Ich habe gesehen, dass in den letzten Aenderungen nicht viel los ist, dennoch bitten wir eigentlich immer (auszer fuer ganz kurze temporaere Geschichten) um lokale Ankuendigungen, einfach um lokalen Benuetzern die Möglichkeit zu geben Einspruch zu erheben und um uns nachher nicht anhören zu muessen, dass sie davon ja nichts wussten und den Adminstatus des jeweiligen Tempadmins anfechten (alles schon dagewesen).
Natuerlich kann ich Dir auch helfen, aber meiner Meinung nach waere es besser Du haettest die Adminknöpfe, dann waerest Du unabhaengig und könntest ab und zu mal ein wachsames Auge auf das Projekt werfen, noch dazu kannst Du die Sprache :) LG., --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 21:09, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Und ich werde dann den Admin beantragen. Ich weiß nicht was mit Pearl los ist drum wollte ich nur temporär. --Seha 21:12, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

CheckUser access

Checkusers@ptwiki

Ruy Pugliesi and Nuno Tavares were elected here. Alexanderps lost the status when Beria was desysopped, and must receive the local checkuser status too. At least Alexanderps and Ruy Pugliesi are already identified (according to identification noticeboard).

Thank you! Bisbis 03:44, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Ray Pugliesi is identified but Nuno Tavares has not done so yet. Once there are two identified users for the position, we will grant the checkuser status. Have you explained the identification need to Nuno Tavares yet? Kylu 07:31, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I sent an e-mail notifying him. Bisbis 23:23, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Once there are two identified users for the position, we will grant the checkuser status

— Kylu

Alexanderps and I (since February) were identified for the position, but we didn´t receive the status. Alexanderps only lost the status when Beria was desysopped, bus he´s also a checkuser identified here. Thank you. Ruy Pugliesi 18:33, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

So, could you please grant us the checkuser status? Thank you. Ruy Pugliesi 18:43, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm inclined to do just that but would like to hear from Alexanderps that he is both aware of this request and willing to be CheckUser on ptwiki again (he is already a Steward). Alexanderps has been notified. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 20:47, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
Ok, but, in fact, Alexanderps didn´t "lost" the status: his access was temporarily removed only because Beria (one of the two checkusers at ptwiki) lost the checkuser status two weeks ago when was desysopped. Ruy Pugliesi 21:08, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I'm steward, too. But I'm a checkuser on pt:wp, since April 2008. My status was removed because this, after I was checkuser alone there. And, I and Ruy was identified (two checkusers). Thanks, Mav. Alex Pereira falaê 03:15, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

He requested remove of admin access on userpage[4]. And, he does not used wiki before 2 years ago.

--2 years ago, he leaved a message--
ko : "위키백과의 옛 관리자 중 한 명입니다. 활발한 활동을 하고 있지 않은 관계로, 관리자 권한을 놓는 것이 좋지 않을까 싶습니다. 다른 활동은 천천히 다시 시작하겠습니다."

en : I am one of oldest admin. I can not use wiki, easier than old, so, I hope remove admin access. Other acts will be restart slowly...

We are amended about it. Mhha 01:04, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Comment Comment I don't think we must remove his flag, This statement is very old, his thought might change.--Kwj2772 () 02:33, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
Comment Comment I tried to send email to him, but his email address is not related with his account. So, I asked on his user talk page before 1 month. but, no answer. We must respect to his last message on wiki. Mhha 03:31, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Sorry for comment without logging in. Mhha does interpret 최종욱's message arbitrarily to English. The statement on 최종욱's userpage does not mean he requested the removal of his adminship, but mean he just considers(he is not confirmed in his belief decidedly whether he would retire from sysop.) that he would quit the adminship on korean wikipedia someday. In this situation that we cannot assure 최종욱's final choice, a request by the other users for the removal of 최종욱's admin access is a preposterous thing against 최종욱's intent.--115.23.143.172 06:49, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

최종욱 hasn't even requested his removal of sysop for himself. Why do you try to remove privilege of just inactive member? --Klutzy 07:51, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

As per retired user's request. Jennavecia|Talk 19:13, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Hello, the user may request that either directly from a steward himself or here on this page, I don't see why someone else should make this request for him, leaving the status there does no harm, and maybe he rethinks this what he wrote in some days or weeks. Therefore marking as not done. Removals are either selfrequests to stewards directly, on this page or removals due to policy reasons, votings or for emergency reasons. Thanks for Your understanding, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 19:16, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
(edit conflict) I have desysopped him. I am willing to reinstate him in the next 24 hours if he wishes. --Meno25 19:19, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
I have no problem with this. If he returns within the next 24 hours requesting the bit back, the RfC would undoubtably go through. Thus, I want to get clarification on what would happen in 2 months should he return. IMO, his resignation now is under a cloud, and he should not get the bit back without going through the community as a whole. If this is what you intended with the 24 hour notice, then I don't think there is a need to proceed with the RfC. If, however, he can come back in 2 months and avoid the RfC and get the bit back, then the RfC needs to proceed.Balloonman 19:35, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
Birdy, he quit because Jennavecia was preparing an RfC against him and discussions at WP:ANI were very critical of his behavior/actions. The fact that he didn't come here himself, but has left in a huff, should not negate the fact that he has requested a desysop to avoid a Request for Comment.Balloonman 19:40, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
For clarity, as the stewards here won't be up to speed with the situation. Spacebirdy, in response to your "do no harm", this one isn't just a simple retirement. There's more to it. As Balloonman noted, there is a looming RFC is he has he bit or can easily get it back. Jennavecia|Talk 19:41, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
You did not say so in the request and You seem to be involved in that dispute and therefore the wrong person to do such a request anyway, if he retires himself he requests himself, if he is devoted by the community the request is done by a representative of that community. IMHO this request was handled unwise and hasty without knowing all the circumstances. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 19:48, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
(edit conflict) @Balloonman: He will get the admin bit back if he requests it in the next 24 hours only. After that he will have to follow the local process (ask a local bureaucrat to resysop him/undergo an RfA). --Meno25 19:41, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
I have zero problem with that. Thanks for the clarification. Balloonman 19:47, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

This is not a discussion zone. Only requests by the user or an Arbitrator should ever be considered here, unless it was a clear emergency. Majorly talk 19:56, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

There was a request by the user: "Oh, and desysop me please just in case this account gets hacked or something)." Cbrown1023 talk 20:34, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
I don't see any request on Meta. And I really don't think that quote sounds sincere do you? It's not a light decision, asking to be desysopped. Majorly talk 20:52, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
So you want to force and RfC on him, wherein we force him to come here, and we force him to make the same request that he made when he walked out the door? He retired under a cloud to avoid an RfC. The fact that when he picked up his toys and left he didn't drop by here does not exhonorate the fact that he left under threat of an RfC. There is no need to kick the boy when he is down. His giving up the bit is no different than your giving up your bit when there was an RfC against you and a threat to go to Arbcom. The only difference is that he did so before the RfC began. As for it being serious, he retired and protected his page on his way out, so yes I do see it as a serious request.Balloonman 21:27, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
But I came here myself to do it. It doesn't bother me particularly though. I just think that only the user should be the one to request, not someone else (who was clearly on a particular side in the conflict). PS While I'm here, would you like a rename? See Meta:Changing username if you're interested. Our bcrats are normally very quick :) Majorly talk 21:34, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Considering this page and its protection I'd remove the sysop bit, but I'll defer to User:Spacebirdy, since he asked for a further verification, that - if necessary - could be achieved via meta.wikimedia account unmerging.

As the wiki isn't yet active, it would best if you applied for temporary adminship (usually 3 months). If you want to do this, please add a message to the Arabic Wikiquote so that new users are informed of this and then leave a link here. Angela 14:19, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi. I received notification yesterday that my Meta Sysop permissions on the Tok Pisin Wikipedia have expired. I am in the process of building this site to bring it back to life, and doing a good job at the moment even if I do say so myself. :) Could I please request a re-grant of my sysop permissions to extend for a further 3 months.

Ciphers@ar.wikiquote

There are no much users to vote (only one for the time being), and we still do not have local adminship policy, i had a temporary access for 3 months on the same project, but it is expired. I wish for a perminant access. Thank you! Ciphers 15:18, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

In this community, have 25 active users [6], and you have only one vote, supporting your name. I propose more 3 months for temp status. Alex Pereira falaê 16:49, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
25 active users (if they truly are active) is a big enough community to have a vote, and avoid the need for temp sysophood... I propose pinging all the users that have been active in the last while and urging them all to make their views known. ++Lar: t/c 22:53, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
"25 active users"! this is the first time i hear such an answer from a steward. Would you please list these "25 active users" for me? users those you are refering to as "active" (officially defined: Users who have performed an action in the last 30 days) themselves make the need to have a sysop there because of there vandal edits. If you are not convinced with the one vote, It is alright give me the temporary one, however i am not sure to be patient to have the same argument every 3 months --Ciphers 00:47, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
Hello Ciphers, I do understand You. However, we cannot grant permanent adminship if there is just one vote, the votings, as You know, usually are a quality control, so that only users trusted by the community, who are doing (from the community pov) constructive work to the project, are elected sysops. On smaller projects there is no such control and there were some bad incidents in the past which is why there is temp-adminship. But please note, that the prolonging process is not having arguments, people just leave a note here like "I wish to prolong my status" (and link the project with the sr-request template) and a steward takes a look into their contributions and prolongs the status if there are no problems locally.
Therefore I would recommend to leave the voting open meanwhile and proceed with temp-adminship. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 04:07, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your opinion. no problem for prolonging from more 3 months wishing to have enough voters till then. Thanks in advance. --Ciphers 04:49, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
