Administrator access[edit]

Ryuch@ko.wikisource[edit]

Thanks. Albamhandae 13:57, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Ko.wikisource has local bureaucrat. You should ask him for granting sysop right. LeinaD (t) 15:09, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
The last edit by the only crat on ko.wikisource was made in September 2007 and the last logged action of him in 2006. There seems to be no activity. Barras (talk) 15:18, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
I requested this because the localcrat has been inactive since September 2007. --Albamhandae 16:13, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
Have you at least tried to contact him (talk page, email)? --FiliP ██ 07:54, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
He didn't leave an e-mail address on Wikisource, thus I cannot contact with him through the e-mail. --Albamhandae 12:03, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
As said FiliP, first you should try contact him, leave a message on his talk page. If he didn't respond, we grant sysop right after week. Moreover I would suggest you organize a vote for removing his bureaucrat status. LeinaD (t) 12:23, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
I have just finished leaving a message on his talk page.[1] Last year, the removal vote of his bureaucrat status had been opened, and we determined to reject. [2] --Albamhandae 16:22, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
Ok, we will wait until 27 October. BTW1. Maybe try again organize a vote? BTW2. Your bureaucrat was recently active on en.wiki. LeinaD (t) 18:10, 22 October 2009 (UTC)
Done, sysop status granted. LeinaD (t) 18:57, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Hello. Can you please add a local announcement saying that you intend to get administrator-rights, and give a link to this page. If noone objects within a week, we will grant you temporary sysop-rights. Laaknor 21:28, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Marmzok@ckbwiki[edit]

Hi. I request Administrator and Bureaucrat accesses for our new Wikipedia after the community voting. The election started 16/10/2009 and ended 31/10/2009. Thanks --Marmzok 13:30, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

Half-done - granted sysop status. Ckb.wiki has only one sysop (after that two sysops), relatively small community, in my opinion it's not enough for granting bureaucrat access. Moreover, please look at bureaucrat: "A small community generally doesn't require a local bureaucrat, because stewards can easily handle the low traffic of requests from that wiki with little delay; generally a user with this access is not needed until several local administrators are present.". Other opinions? LeinaD (t) 15:32, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Agreed. No need for crats just yet, I don't think. ++Lar: t/c 17:06, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

I've marked this request as completed.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 18:25, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

J.delanoy@tpiwiki[edit]

I temporarily assigned J.delanoy administrator access on tpiwiki to clear a deletion backlog, there being no active local administrators. He is now done and the access was revoked. —Pathoschild 18:07:07, 06 November 2009 (UTC)

Amdf@mhr.wikipedia[edit]

My sysop access will expire 15-11-2009, please prolong it. амдф 15:36, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Please make a local announcement so if others object they can say so. - Andre Engels 23:37, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
Done. амдф 19:50, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
I support. Azimbaj 11:51, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

SergeyJ@ru.wikiversity[edit]

I was the administrator in betawikiversity. Now the independent Russian section (http://ru.wikiversity.org) is created. I ask to grant to me the constant rights of the administrator that I can technically support the given project. In the beginning it is necessary to transfer the maintenance from betawikiversity in ru.wikiversity.org. And then to keep order and observance to rules. SergeyJ 02:49, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

I would like add to this proposition about temporary "ImportUpload" right to transfert more easier the 300 russian files from betawikiversity tou ru.wikiversity. Allow up to middle-december ?.Crochet.david 17:35, 13 November 2009 (UTC)
If it is not a part of the rights of the administrator, really I ask still the rights "ImportUpload" SergeyJ 17:39, 13 November 2009 (UTC)
  • Note: I would strongly object promoting this user permanent adminship since he has been (re)blocked 11 times on ruwiki. vvvt 13:59, 14 November 2009 (UTC)
It is an individual question - why me pursue on ruwiki !? SergeyJ 14:10, 14 November 2009 (UTC)
If the ru.wikiversity-community wants him, and is large enough to take the tools back if they wish it, ruwiki-history should not be important in the promotion. However, the question is if a new wiki has a stable enough community yet. Laaknor 14:17, 14 November 2009 (UTC)
Well, I'm not sure it's large enough. At least 13 supports wasn't considered enough year ago. vvvt 17:21, 14 November 2009 (UTC)
In the same place just the status has been appropriated ... And the analogy here is completely not pertinent .. SergeyJ 17:59, 14 November 2009 (UTC)
All basic participants participating in development beta wikiversiteta have supported me. Opening of RU Wikiversitet already means that the community is available. SergeyJ 14:44, 14 November 2009 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Sysop granted. Good luck to the ru-community with your new wiki :) Laaknor 22:18, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
Thanks ! SergeyJ 22:26, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

MacTire02@gv.wikipedia[edit]

I wish to apply for admin status on the Manx language wikipedia. We currently have no permanent admin on the project but we were informed that if we could get a vote from Alison as well as two other users we would be able to gain a permanent admin. The discussion for this proposal is listed as the first discussion in the template above. If we are still unable to obtain a permanent admin we have already had a vote on temporary admin status which can be seen at the second discussion listed above. Currently User:Shimmin Beg has temporary admin status until 16th November as part of an agreement between us, balancing on 6 months admin status for me, 6 months for him. But we in the community would be grateful if we could have a permanent admin. In the last few weeks we have seen a "flurry" of activity on the project and we feel it is necessary for us to be able to concentrate on managing this as well as maintaining pages, patrolling for vandalism, having the ability to delete nonsense pages, as well as general maintenance on the project. Kind regards, --MacTire02 13:06, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

I only see strong community support and no opposition after multiple temp admin runs. Permanent admin status granted per community vote. Please keep up the great work! :) --Daniel Mayer (mav) 03:22, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
Thank you very much Daniel. Our community will greatly appreciate the permanent admin status. --MacTire02 08:13, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access[edit]

Борислав@bg.wikinews[edit]

The following discussion is closed.

The lack of bureaucrat hinders some projects for attracting news submitters, and we decided that it will be useful to have one. Borislav is the creator of the Wikinews in Bulgarian, and is an active bureaucrat in bg.wikipedia, and we agreed that he is the natural choice. -- Григор Гачев 17:26, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

Refused, bg.wikinews has only one sysop and too little community (and not enought supporters in provided link). Moreover, please look at bureaucrat: "A small community generally doesn't require a local bureaucrat, because stewards can easily handle the low traffic of requests from that wiki with little delay; generally a user with this access is not needed until several local administrators are present.". Please do not feel discouraged. Regards, LeinaD (t) 17:38, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
OK. As the projects for attracting news submitters, mentioned in the request, do require the presence of a bureaucrat, they will be suspended until one is present. (Unless the interest in implementing them is lost before this.) -- Григор Гачев 20:38, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Are you sure about what you want? Bureaucrat is a user who has only technical abilities, here you have listed bureaucrat rights. I don't understand you what "projects" you couldn't realise without bureaucrat access. LeinaD (t) 21:37, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
I have installed about a dozen MediaWikis, and on most of them happen to be the only bureaucrat, for 2 to 4 years. Have modified some of them (rewriting at places the PHP source). Should be hell dumb to still not know what exactly any user group is in a typical MediaWiki. :-)
bg.wikinews is almost dead. To have a thriving community we need people, but people don't go to dead places. The projects mentioned are meant to break this vicious circle.
First, we are going to submit some news to bg.wikinews via a bot (I participate in a news site project, and obtained an agreement to release some news under CC-BY-SA 3.0). I know also several other sites who will see this as a clever advertisement of ours (news from us will contain a reference to the source, as I believe news ought to), and some of them will follow the suit. After bg.wikinews starts getting more than 20-30 news per day, it will start attracting readers, and with them will come the editors - maybe not many, but certainly more than now.
For this, we will need first to get a bot status for my bot (and maybe play with its specific rights, if wikinews projects allow a bureaucrat to manipulate them). Maybe the bot status will have to be stripped and given anew several times to allow for some experiments (I see, for example, that some autoconfirmed accounts meet a captcha when submitting a text with links, while other ones don't - this, and some other things may need experimenting to fine-tune the things). And this rock'n'rolling will have to be done promptly and conveniently for the people who will make the tuning, even if it has to be done a dozen times.
Next, we will probably have to create some more bot accounts, as other sites may like to start submitting news, too. Some will probably have to learn the difference from news and spam the hard way - blocking bot accounts, stripping bot rights, giving them again on agreement, all this very promptly (bots tend to be productive). Also, the first editors attracted by the opportunity to create news typically need a lot of admin-level sweeping after them. At this point we will need at least one, most probably more additional administrators: Borislav will probably be too busy to watch for all minor stuff that needs admin rights.
Of course, we could nag at you with bureaucrat-level requests until all comes to the point where we will have several admins, and The Rules will justify getting a bureaucrat. However, things will go far smoother and faster if bg.wikinews gets a bureaucrat now (from my experience, about one human month of work will be saved for the first six months). And Borislav has been a bureaucrat in bg.wikipedia since its creation, and has a sterling record at it. So, I believe that giving him a bureaucrat status will make the things easier for everybody around, and will save a lot of extra work and time.
Sorry for the long explanation; hope it was satisfactory. -- Григор Гачев 23:50, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
For experiments I would like suggest you use your dozen installations of MediaWikis. If you really need a bot flag, please submit your request on Steward requests/Bot status. Granting the user bureaucrat status in a very small community threatened that no one will control the user. The rest said Kylu below. LeinaD (t) 12:02, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
I'm sorry to get involved since I'm not a steward, but in your discussion about becoming a bureaucrat you told the other user you wanted to grant him autoconfirmed and bot, but a bureaucrat cant grant autoconfirmed, I don't think you really know what a crat can do. Huib talk 22:01, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
I don't think that you have really understood our discussion - we said nothing like this. However, you seem really convinced you did. No wonder you believe so easily that the other people are clueless. -- Григор Гачев 23:50, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done Stewards may only promote people who have been selected by a consensus of the local community and when there are enough local sysops to merit the promotion (typically five or more). Regardless of the personal merits of the individual, we can not grant bureaucrat under these conditions. This is not even a case of our deciding the matter: We're simply unable to do so, under the policy that our stewardships were granted. Sorry, but Wikimedia Stewards are simply unable to help you on this point at this time. Kylu 02:32, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

As the policy your stewardships were granted states:

Stewards do not make decisions, such as whether a user should (or should not) be promoted. Their task is to implement valid community consensus.

You either implement the community consensus, or are in direct breach of your obligation as stewards - that is, Kylu resorted above to a plain and direct lie. As we have a consensus of all users who care at all on the topic (want a voting?), you should be obliged to carry it. However, you didn't.

Also, as one of the oldest wiki rules states:

If a rule prevents you from improving or maintaining a project, ignore it.

In this case it is clear that a guideline - not granting a bureaucrat status without having at least five sysops - prevents you (and through you the editors) from improving a project (bg.wikinews). So, you should break it. However, you didn't this, too.

In short: You have the discretion (actually, the obligation) to allow what is needed for bg.wikinews to improve and grow, but decided to break your obligations in order to obstruct it. Sorry: this is the bare fact. Hope you get an award for your work.

Enough said. -- Григор Гачев 03:12, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

You missed a linked page: Steward_handbook#User_access. I'll note some points, however: 1) Stewards, like any other volunteer on any other project hosted by Wikimedia, are not obliged to do anything, nor do I see myself as obstructing your ability to do anything (you can ask another steward if you'd like, though I'd advise you to do so one-at-a-time.) 2) See Steward_handbook#User_access. Your project has neither enough local users discussing the matter. Two users on a talk page isn't going to generate a meaningful consensus on that project. Actually, a paranoid mind may say it looks suspect, in fact. 3) IAR is decided by the individual, and I don't think that the greater wikimedia community would support me giving your friend bureaucratship, only based on your say-so. 4) If you wish to continue the discussion, please make a subpage at MW:RFC. This page is neither a forum for voicing your disapproval of my denial nor a place to attack other users. Continuance of such may well result in action by a local administrator. Please reconsider your position on the matter. Kylu 03:58, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Borislav@bg.wikinews[edit]

Excuse me for reviving this discussion so soon after it was archived, but I feel that certain details were not well explained which led to some haste and waste. Since I am also in touch with these details, I'd like to mend the matters and explain again why is this request for an exception of the general rules.

The Bulgarian contributing community is relatively small, not enough human resources to cover all sister projects and most of the people who voluntarily contribute to Wikimedia are those who contribute to Wikipedia. Another reason, especially concerning BG Wikinews, may be that, to the best of my knowledge, we don't have in Bulgaria a news media that originally releases news under free license, so we don't have such a free data source, while using non-free media (paraphrasing texts, access to images) consumes more efforts than those available.

Now, one of our wikipedians Grigor Gatchev (Григор Гачев, check SUL, a local user, bot operator, holder of several own wikis, programmer and active promoter of free software) used his personal contacts and managed to convince one relatively small but flexible Bulgarian news media to release some of its content under CC-BY. He also programmed a special bot to wikify and import this content on a daily basis, roughly 20-30 articles per day. Which already comprises a big resource, at least big for our humble standards; and freely licensed, which is no less victory :)

So, he will need bot status. But before he leaves the bot running, he will need to first make some tests which require the flag be changed on, off, on, off... (due to some already encountered problems with captcha and other fine tunings). Which means either constantly bugging stewards with such requests (which would take much more time, efforts) or the other option is that we have a local bureaucrat on BG Wikinews, and so far there is only one admin, Borislav, the person who once requested the opening of all BG projects and has been given either bureaucrat or admin rights in all of them (check his SUL and user rights). This is why Grigor used the phrase "natural choice" in his first request.

Our point is that presently there is nothing in BG Wikinews, around which a community may be built, while Grigor's efforts to run the news bot may very soon break the vicious circle and bring readers, and of course editors. An explanation was given that the wiki must have at least 5 admins in order to apply for crat, but with a *currently* active and interested community tending to zero this simply cannot happen in reasonable time.

So a community may start forming, only when there is *something* around which they may gather, a resource, which has lacked for about 6 years, and only now we have the chance to have it. Once we have the content, admins and crats will be very soon really needed to clean after the (inevitable) vandals, to help operating the bot (giving and removing the flag when needed) and do maintenance which is not accessible to regular editors. One admin will not be able to do all the job, while the lack of a crat to facilitate the bot operator's job will hinder its initial fine-tuning which may affect the quality of the bot job. It is not a good idea to make the project's progress constantly dependent on stewards for decisions of purely operational nature.

In other words, it is really an exceptional request that we'd like to be granted more trust than the usual procedure provides, but the idea and the expected result is really promising and the people involved (Borislav and Grigor, after writing you - me too :-) ) are not going to abuse this trust, as we haven't done it so far in all other sister projects where we actively contribute. Thank you in advance. Spiritia 20:01, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done I've spoken independently to Spiritia. Given the user involved and the nature of the request, as the local project is intending on granting and removing the bot flag, and that I'm convinced that doing this supports the growth of the nascent Bulgarian Wikinews project. bastique demandez! 20:05, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
Does that communication address the reasons it wasn't done originally?  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 20:11, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
Yes, it addresses the fact that the reason it wasn't done before was per policy, and that I've granted it as an exception to the policy, in my position, because I'm convinced it will foster the growth of the project. I've also acknowledged that it was declined before per policy, as was appropriate. bastique demandez! 20:16, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
OK, you granted him bureaucrat flag (I'm bit confused), but who will control what happens on bg.wikinews? If this is an exception, it should be somehow controlled. In my opinion permanent bureaucrat should be turned into temporary access - on one year period with possibility of prolongation. It's too small project for permanent bureaucrat. LeinaD (t) 11:06, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
who will control what happens on bg.wikinews? -- what this has to do with bureaucrat privileges? --Петър Петров 10:46, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
Granting administrator access by bureaucrat have to base on decision of community, but bg.wikinews is a very small community, so it should be controlled. LeinaD (t) 14:48, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Amdf@mhr.wikipedia[edit]

Hello. After the local voting our community decided to remove administration access of user Amdf. The election started 10/11/2009 and ended 19/11/2009. 50% has voted agains this user, while the user needs 2/3 of all votes to become an administrator. Thanks. ПешСай 17:48, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

Isn't clear to us. Amdf did have your temp sysop flag extended to May 15 2010, make a local announcement here. Alex Pereira falaê 12:44, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
Amdf post a message to prolong his administrative access. But we begun a local voting. The result of the voting is to give administrative access for user ПешСай, and to remove access for user Amdf (because two of four votes are agains). I have made an announcement here. --ПешСай 18:02, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
You are doing very strange things, I think. I don't know why you want to remove my temporary sysop access after all my work in mhr wikipedia. I want to havem my temp sysop rights until May 15 2010, and I will not ask to prolong it after. амдф 18:06, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
The voting have made such decision. It is not comfortable for our community to have administrator, who don't know native language at all. And I have told you(Amdf) that you have made you work with mistakes, after which we spend a time to fix them.--ПешСай 19:08, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
Are sure that having two administrators is not better than just one, at least for a limited amount of time? If you abstain, User:Amdf has 2/3 of votes. As you know, Stewards will not decide for your community, but given that it's a small one, I think that most of us will feel much more confortable if you decide to cooperate in order to achive the best results. Thank you, M/ 12:34, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I am sure. Mhr wikipedia is not too big to have several administrators. One admin will be able to watch and track whole activity in project. I don't want to abstain in the vote. I wouldn't be so insistent if Amdf's work was definitly good. Amdf have made mistakes, and doesn't know language at all. This two points let down development of Mhr Wikipedia. Stewards, please make attention to the fact, that this is the wish of community and the result of voting. Thanks. --ПешСай 17:10, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

I will fullfill this request, after having jotted down that the only other user opposing User:Amdf had 83 edits at the date of the poll. A CU was negative. Any comments from other stewards? --M/ 17:23, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

If Amdf don't help mhr:wp, he don't need tools. Don't speak local language, to me, isn't a problem... Alex Pereira falaê 18:28, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
What is the problem, Guys? This is the local voting. The rule in the voting says that participate may anyone, who had made at lease one edit in Main namespaces before the start of the voting. --ПешСай 19:40, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
Don't afraid that I'm a spamer or any other bad guy. I'm don't. I have translated the whole most used messages for Mhr:wp, and have made a lot of affords in incubator. So, it is my interest to make Wp:Mhr better. And I don't understand why you are delaying the decision made by the community during the voting.--ПешСай 19:49, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
I'm taking the time that I think is needed, please don't pressure! 32 other Stewards have the same right that I have, but this is not an urgent matter and the community vote involves 4 users, and I'm wondering also if this may be a really small number for granting and also for removing rights.

Seagull.Stefanos@el.wikiquote[edit]

On March 27th you gave me admin permission for three months, which are almost to expire. For this reason I'm asking you either to renew my temporary permission or to give me permanent adminship, as (probably!) no one else has express the will to help Greek Wikiquotes. I'm planning to make some more changes & addings in the project, during the next (summer/holiday) months... Thanks in advance! Thank you! Seagull.Stefanos 07:12, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done - OK, let's renew this for next 5 months. Expires November 25 2009. --FiliP ██ 08:55, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
Changed to permanent access. Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 13:38, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Bot flags on mgwiki[edit]

Hello,

Many bots doesn't have the bot flag on mg.wikipedia. Indeed, the 48 robots that are categorized as such (which excludes the robots that have no user page), only 20 are classified as bots on wikipedia malagasy. That's why I'm requesting here, to give them an official bot flag. If you have another questions about this request, you may ask them in my home wiki --Jagwar 交談 homewiki 14:53, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done. Your wiki allows global bots, and the bots are probably global bots doing interwiki only. If you wish to give them local flags, you should discuss it and file a request on SRB. Laaknor 16:24, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
OK, thank you! --Jagwar 交談 homewiki 17:59, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
