Administrator access


Please give the sysop access to Mohamed Slim, Best Regards -Orango speak! 02:34, 22 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

hello Orango as i see there is only two support vote which is not enough for permanent adminship so i suggest you Temporary adminship which is technically same as a permanent adminship , whenever your community grew enough for permanent adminship you can request for permanent adminship and please hold the RFA at least for one week --Mardetanha talk 02:43, 22 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello Mardetanha, I think I rushed :) . Overall the number of voters is sufficient because the project is not very very active. Please consider the request tomorrow (The end of the one week). Thankyou --Orango speak! 03:43, 22 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello Orango, I agree with Mardetanha, we can offer adminship for a three months period, note that this can be prolonged easily, just check back here a few days before the status expires. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 08:12, 25 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello Spacebirdy, Now I think that there is a consensus in the ar.wikinews to give him a sysop access, the wiki is not big, the number of contributors is very limited. Better to give him full access, Thanks --Orango speak! 15:58, 28 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello Orango, I am sorry, but 2 votes are too few for a permanent status, temporary status is full access, this is only a quality control, he can prolong it easily shortly before the period runs out by leaving a short notice here, if everything is alright it will be prolonged without any bureaucracy. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 19:52, 29 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Per discussion with Orango , Yes check.svg Temporary flag granted for 3 month , will expire on 30 October 2009 --Mardetanha talk 19:43, 30 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mardetanha, Spacebiry: Thanks :) I think this time there was a sufficient number of voters. Perhaps there will be many more after 30 October, Thanks alot --Orango speak! 19:49, 30 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, I'm Kanags, and I am an active sysop in Tamil Wikipedia since Feb 2007. Now I am actively involved in Tamil Wikinews as well and wish to become an administrator. As Tamil wikinews has no Bureaucrats or sysops, I am unable to do some tasks which I needed, specially deletion of unwanted files, vandalism etc. Thank you in advance.--Kanags 10:24, 26 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello. I'd like to ask for permanent administrator/sysop status to User b:ca:User:Xavier Dengra, as a result of the voting process that has taken place at b:ca:Viquillibres:Candidatura_a_administrador#Xavier_Dengra. Voting finishes August 1st., but I don't know if I'll have connection next days. There is still no bureaucrat at ca.books. He wants this user right for deleting garbage, importing from Wikipedia and those kind of things, because other administrators are a bit inactive. Thank you. -Aleator (talk) 23:21, 29 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Can you get feedback from some of the other editors currently using the wiki? There aren't that many of them. But it is unusual to grant temp sysop rights to an editor who hasn't started to edit the project. (For instance, if you tagged the files you want to delete, and left a message for Aidabishkek, and he didn't respond - that would be inactivity on his part.) -- sj | translate | + 21:21, 1 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, I am not active in kywiki. Because I mostly do edit Turkish Wikipedia. Lastly I left a message to Aidabishkek, and if he don't respond, when is it going to be accepted my request? Thank you.--Captain Jones 08:12, 2 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please do a local request anyway, this way no one can say afterwards they hadn't known or hadn't had the chance to give their opinion (we had that in the past).

Hello Spacebirdy and Chris, I am Sarvaturi from Sicilian wiktionary and wikipedia, I hope both of you are fine. I must say that there is not really a "local community" on mt.wiktionary: I am the main contributor (I create articles, and I wikificate other ones). Chris does a very good work on mt.wikipedia and I remember that he helped me for some Italian to Maltese translations (which were useful for creating new templates and categories on mt.wiktionary). I think Chris will be a good administrator on mt.wiktionary. Best regards. --Sarvaturi 17:11, 31 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you, Sarvaturi, and it's great that mt.wikt has a new active contributor! Our policy is to wait roughly a week after the local request is made; it's okay if there are no other comments, and leaving yours on mt.wikt was all that was necessary. -- sj | translate | +
The 7-day period given for the administration nomination will pass today. Due to the project's not-that-active period, I think I should receive the adminship (even on temporary basis) so as I can go on to make some changes to the site. —Chrisportelli 14:46, 6 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We have been waiting roughly one week :) The Limburgish Wiktionary only has two admins (one is a little bit much inactive and the other one am I) and we definitively need one more to clean up everything.

Hello dear lar , i think two vote is not enough for premanent adminship , i think temp adminship for any period is better option --Mardetanha talk 17:17, 4 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
On further review, and as you say Mardetanha, there were only 2 supports (although there were no objections)... that's rather low, so it probably makes sense to make this a temporary assignment. What do people think? Unless there are strong objections, let's mark this as temporary, 6 month term, expires 4 February 2010. Meanwhile if the community can be built up a bit that would be great. Also ... 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. ++Lar: t/c 18:06, 4 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think number of pages and number of tasks to do for admins is far more important than number of contributors (a good community doesn't need an admin if it functions well). But of course 6 months is one half year so that's - hopefully - long enough to do some of those tasks. --OosWesThoesBes 13:02, 6 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I can't see you have had a voting about your bureaucrat access. You can't be given 'crat-access without a voting. Until a big enough community exists, the stewards will perform the work of giving sysop and bot-flags. Marking as X mark.svg Not done Laaknor 19:55, 13 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The voting is on progress. Isn't it too soon to say "not done"? •• ivanlanin 00:52, 14 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I would suggest you request only sysop permission. New projects should first have a few active users (including administrators) and than request a bureaucrat flag for one of them. On projects with no bureaucrats, users can request a bot flag on Steward requests/Bot status and for other permissions users can request here (Steward requests/Permissions).

Hello ivanlanin, You can request temp-adminship until there is a local community for a fair vote (most of the voters there right now have only the vote as contribution...), if You wish we can do this right here, for bots I would recommend to implement the bot policy, see Bot_policy/Implementation#How_to_implement_the_policy.

In fact, it does not only seem to be a policy, If you read above I said that "it is a local policy" and many admins have been adminshiped according to it. if you are interested to see the discussion of the policy please check the discussion page here. good luck. --Ciphers 01:02, 19 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I can't read Arabic, sorry. If the page says "deadminship is automatic, 6 months with no activity and that's it"... then that's clear cut. If it says (such as, for example, something like Commons) "deadminship can be proposed and if the discussion doesn't find a reason not to deadmin, then it happens" then it would be good to see the discussion, if there was one. I'm sorry I don't know your local policies and I apologise if my question seemed ill formed to you. Best. ++Lar: t/c 01:18, 19 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

inactive admins@svwikiquote

Wait Wait. I would wait a little more; although inactivity is pretty clear, only 3 people voted on this page, and none of them is admin. My view is that it wouldn't hurt to wait, say one more month, to gather more opinions. guillom 09:01, 22 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree the discussion was short, but I'm not sure how much sense a month makes. It's up to the local community to come to a consensus. I agree the current discussion seems insufficient, but I don't think we should mandate a minimum length the discussion must run, in particular if it will be so long. Perhaps in a week Fredde 99 can let us know if he feels the whole community at svwikiquote has been consulted and if consensus still exists to do this it'll be done at that point.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 02:40, 23 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I mostly agree with you. If it was a request for adminship, and the wiki badly needed active admins, I wouldn't mind. But a desysopping because of inactivity isn't really urgent. Since sv.wikiquote is a relatively small wiki and it's Summer holidays, I would argue we should wait at least 2 more weeks. That said, I won't object if another steward wants to go ahead and proceed with the request (and the two others below). guillom 05:42, 23 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
