Hello ಕಿರಣ, kn.wikt has a local (& active) bureaucrat, please contact him, thanks, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 07:28, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
Hello geimfyglið, unfortunately the existing bureaucrat HPNadig is not active on kn.wik. There is really no active community yet on kn.wikt (if there were one, the Kannada Wikt would have not have less than 100,000 entries by now - it has only 253). I am building a community from scratch, and need to modify some templates, locked pages, correct some message translations, remove personal details left by earlier editors on some of the locked templates, etc to even communicate effectively with the Kannada community. Hope you can reconsider my request. Thanks.--ಕಿರಣ 09:25, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
Hello ಕಿರಣ, the local bureaucrat answered to that request, so he did see it, it is his duty to promote or not to promote people there, if he does not promote You we cannot do anything, because we are not allowed to grant adminship on projects with active bureaucrats, and yes in my eyes he is active enough if he responds to a local request. Please contact him. Thanks for Your understanding, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 09:40, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

J.delanoy@pswikipedia

According to the find-admins tool, this wiki has no active admins within the past month. The speedy deletion log there is fairly large. There are a few crosswikimalbot creations, but the vast majority of the pages consist of articles that were copied, in English, (I assume verbatim) from the English Wikipedia in 2006 or 2007. None of the ones I looked at have any recent edits, other than by interwiki link-bots, and some of them have been tagged for deletion for around two years. I would like to request sysop rights on this wiki temporarily to clear out this backlog. I don't imagine it would take me more than a some minutes to an hour to finish, so if it is all right, I will not ask for a specific duration; I'll just request removal once I am done. Thank you for your consideration. J.delanoygabsadds 18:55, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done & thanks for your offer to help. Let us know when you're finished.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 20:42, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Please clean up only the blantant vandalism/spam -- the issue with old English articles that are tagged for deletion should be handled by the local community & sysops.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 20:46, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Well, okay. I got rid of those, but it only amounted to seven pages. I wouldn't have requested the permission if that's all I was going to do. I thought that the English pages would be considered non-controversial because they haven't been edited in so long. In any case, I'm done now, so please can remove my flag.

There are currently almost no active admins or bureaucrats in tr.wiktionary and as a well-known admin&CU from tr.wikipedia I'm often called to do the cleaning... so I thought getting temporary adminship would be good - I could visit regularly to revert and erase vandalisms etc. Thank you!

Bureaucrat access

user drbug@ru.wikimedia

I'm chair of Wikimedia Russia, and I need Bureaucrat and Administrator rights for the newly created ru.wikimedia.org Russian Chapter wiki due to vandalism that appeared there.

Also it's reasonable to ask for oversight rights there (I'm OTRS agent and former checkuser, so my identity is perfectly known to the Office).

Thank you! Dr Bug (Vladimir V. Medeyko) 01:27, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

I've granted you sysop and bureaucrat flag, but I couldn't grant you oversight flag, because policy require community consensus. Leinad 09:45, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Editor access (Wikinews)

Vitorbraziledit@pt.wikinews

The following discussion is closed.

I'm the user Vitorbraziledit, from pt.wikinews and wikipedia. I'm requesting the Editor TEMPORARY ACESS here because our 5 Editors (2=active | 3=inactive) are not editing (3 days without them), the Bureacrauts don't edits for 3 day too and the "recents news" are not in Main Page (it only appear on Main Page if any Editor or Critic analise it). I have 1149 edits (more than 400 in main), 32 created articles, no blocks, and i was registered there on November 28 of 2007. Please, view our local policy to give the status (requirements: 300 edits, 30 created articles, 3 months registed and no block logs on 3 moths ago). When they (Editors) came again, my privileges will be removed. Thank you! Vitorbraziledit msg 04:24, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done Any pt.wikinews administrator may add users to the editor group, not just bureaucrats. Three days is not quite enough inactivity to warrant stewards going to that project, giving themselves adminship (as the editor flag can't be assigned from here) and promoting people without the consent of the project. Sorry. Kylu 05:12, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Nakor@fr.wikipedia

It seems than Nakor wants a sysop flag withdrawn after an user complaint.
Can we defer this request some 24 hours delay to let Nakor confirm its resignation? It's not an emergency. Especially, it's not in agreement with the policy linked, which cover sysop absenteism. --Dereckson 18:58, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
More precisely, Nakor have no warranty to recover automatically its status in the current circumstances, so this temporary removal could be definitive. --Dereckson 19:14, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Stewards can not grant you temporary removal (regranting sysop-rights are up to the local community). If you wish to have it removed permanently, please say so. Laaknor 19:18, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
The situation is cleared now after a talk on IRC. According Darkoneko and Blinking Spirit, local 'crats, it'll can request regrant sysop flag and obtain it. This, not according the ruling cited in discussion but by common sense. So it's safe for Nakor to get a removal, as he have the warranty to recover its flag. My only thought on that is the thing is not useful : if a sysop wants to sanction itself with temporary flag removal, this user can also choose not to use sysop functionalities without requesting one a steward removal, secondly a local 'crat regrant. --Dereckson 19:33, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Cancelled per Dereckson and Clem23 advice. Sorry for the trouble. Nakor 19:52, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Japanese Wikipedia provides as a policy that the sysopship should be taken away from an administrator who is inactive for recent three months. Thus, most users of Japanese Wikipedia don't believe that it is nessecary to leave a message on his/her talkpage prior to request. (Rather, we usually tell him/her after the removal.)

Could you show page with your desysop policy or paste link with local discussion/voting about removal? Leinad 15:56, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
Actually, there is no desysop policy in tt.wikipedia. I thought that having no edits for 1 year is enough for removing sysop access. If it is not, we can vote, of course. --Timming 17:49, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

I'm sorry I don't speak english as weel.

Je demande mon desysopage temporaire, pour quelques temps. Est-ce possible ? Est-il possible de venir faire une demande pour le récupérer par la suite ici même ? Ludo29 08:30, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Non, tu peux seulement demander ton desysopage ici, pour le récupérer tu devrais aller à la wikipedia francophone. Je ne sais pas si ça est autorisé et donc possible là-bas. Mes amitiés, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 09:21, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Hello, you don't have SUL, please confirm this request on your project. Leinad 14:37, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

I hope deletion of the main page is adequate confirmation. --Jackofclubs 07:03, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
How about just writing "I don't want to be a sysop anymore, please remove it", while logged in, at en.wiktionary? That'd fulfill the Leinad's request admirably. Kylu 07:44, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Moon@kwwikipedia

The Cornish Wikipedia is somewhat inactive, and I'd like to be given the chance to change that. With sysop permissions I will attempt to finish translation of the interface, keep an eye on Category:Candidates for speedy deletion, and try to make it easier to link and sort articles. This would be on top of my efforts to increase the site's scope and create the vital articles at w:kw:Wikipedia:1,000 erthyglow. I know I'm not even autoconfirmed there yet, but I've familiarised myself with WP policy, and thought there's no time like the present. Many thanks, w:kw:User:Moon --79.66.147.59 12:42, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Hello, 1. the interface translations should never be done locally but only on betawiki: where all interface translations go, so they are not only locally but everywhere available and where the translations are documented to avoid common errors like translating variables or keywords which would break the interface. 2. please open a local announcement, we cannot grant You adminship whithout that. If there is no local community we could grant You a temporary period, but only if You can assure not to translate locally, but for this You need a local announcement anyway. Thanks and best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:56, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
P.S. The local sysop seems not inactive. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 13:01, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
No problem, I will use Betawiki to translate the interface then. I have posted a message on the community portal [13] and on the current administrator's userpage [14], however a reply may not be left as he is sometimes inactive for weeks at a time. Regards, w:kw:User:Moon --79.66.147.59 13:20, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks Moon, since there is no hurry lets grant local users to comment this for ~ 1 week. Thanks for registering at betawiki and for helping there. If You wish to solve some of Your sul conflicts You could request usurpation for the accounts with no (or sometimes also few) contributions, requestpages can be found via the interwikilinks on the left at SR/SUL or requested there if the local project has no (active) bureaucrats, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 17:32, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Hanberke@tkwikipedia

The Turkmen Wikipedia has two administrators who are in active for more than two years now. I'd like to be an administrator there, because categorizing of pages is necesary. There are some pages to be deleted since they were just copied out from other wikis as they were. Presently I'm about to complete the translation of the Milestone 1 in Betawiki. With the permission I will clean up and arrange Turkmen wiki what I have been trying to do in recent months. As there are no frequent users in our wiki it is major problem to ask for their votes, as well. I'm looking forward for your reply. Best Regards Hanberke 12:13, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Hello Hanberke, there is no local request made by You, please do that and wait for at least one week, if no one objects we can grant You a temporary adminship for 3 months (technically it is the same and can be prolonged easily), with no local request however we cannot grant You access. Thanks for Your understanding, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:24, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Thank You! I have made local request. Best Regards --Hanberke 13:20, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
Dear Whom it may concern! I made the local request at the very same day. And still waiting for local request has been being displayed since then. Is it the real status of my request or just a trivial thing?! Best Regards --Hanberke 12:22, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
Dear Hanberke, I don't understand Your question. You made a local request on 5th, it should stay open at least a week, so locals could comment, that would be not before 12th then. Also it seems that new requests are usually not added to the top of the request-page but at the bottom, and the format of the heading is different too, You probably should correct that too.
