Administrator access[edit]

Snooker@lt.wikibooks[edit]

I am sysop in lt.wikipedia project. I came up with the fact that lt.wikibooks project is very abandoned, 3 sysops available are not active, busy with other projects, the project lacks in any simple order, it's being attacked by vandals. Due to the small number of users in lt.wikibooks it's impossible to have even some kind of small vote. I request sysop rights in this project. Thank you in advance. 193.219.94.176 14:39, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

ssr@ruwikinews[edit]

Please consider giving Ssr sysop status per the discussion linked to above. The request has been open for almost two weeks now; there are only three supports, but that should be enough in this case as there is practically nobody editing there actively. Thanks - Tempodivalse [talk] 01:48, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Granted temporarily for half a year; expires December 5. - Andre Engels 17:27, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Gaeser@abwiki[edit]

Hello, can you please grant me admin rights on this wiki once again? This time for a week or two. The situation hasn't changed since this request, but if necessary local administrator, Temur, will support this request. Regards, --George M. 19:31, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

3rd temp. adminship (1st: October 15, 2009 - December 15, 2009. 2nd: December 15, 2009 - June 15, 2010). Ahéheeʼ. Seb az86556 09:18, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done extended for 6 more months. expires Dec 14, 2010 --Jyothis 19:55, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Diego Grez@aywikipedia[edit]

Diego Grez return fire 01:22, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Unless there is an emergency, I'd like to wait a week to allow community input. Might as well make status permanent if we wait a week. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 23:21, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
Okay. --Diego Grez return fire 01:31, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
Comment Comment Although it may appear that the boy tries to help, not long ago he was locked in more/less half of the projects, plus, this wasn´t long ago. The global rename, seems more like an strategy to cover the past and hide the problems he was involved on, clearly not an attempt to redeem himself. The search for flags in certain wikis without much contributions (and therefore vandalism), doesn't help the project, really seems more like a pray to gain any kind of global status in order to achieve a reduction and/or forget the locks that he currently has on en@wiki and es@wiki. Saloca 08:03, 16 June 2010 (UTC). P.S. Vandalism? Wich one?. Saloca 08:07, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
Comment Comment He claims that knows inusual languages as chamorro or in this case, aymara. But the really he has a several problem with the grammar of these languages, perhaps uses a computer translator. And also, the history of Diego Grez (previously MisterWiki) is for a serious analysis. --Taichi - (あ!) 08:08, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
Comment Comment BTW, skin doesn't means máscara, means piel, we're fixing something he should know as a near native speaker and if he's gonna play like this. Saloca 08:28, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Demmy@yo.wikipedia.org[edit]

I am requesting an extension to my adminship which expires today. Thanks Demmy 14:19, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

It's the nth request of an extension by Demmy. He's trusted by the local community and long time experienced. I think we could grant him a permanent access, any different opinion?--Nick1915 - all you want 10:51, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
Any development??? Maybe you can grant a temporary adminship while you decide. I am the only active admin and there are sysop duties to perform in the mean time. Thanks Demmy 17:00, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

HI, can you please grant me adminstrator rights on Abkhaz wiki? I was an administrator for three months. Definitely Abkhaz Wikipedia began to work. I would like to extend the status of administrator. If it necessary local administrator, Gaeser (whitch become an Admin yesterday), will support this request. Thanks in advance -Temuri 11:52, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Al Silonov@be.wiktionary[edit]

My temporary admin's status has expired, so now there are no admins in that Wiktionary. There are only a couple of active users there, since June 8th all of them have voted suport (against - 0). Al Silonov 15:15, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Well, I've had some slight suspicion that nobody cares about be:Wiktionary, but I could not imagine the degree of that indifference. Indeed, nobody gives a damn - nor Belorussians themselves (the only 3 active users there are from Russia or from Portugal - and the same users took part in voting for my adminship), nor the stewards here - I posted my request on 17 June and within 5 days nobody stirred to react. Now, this is really impressive! --Al Silonov 07:58, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Thank you for your patience. --Mercy 08:52, 21 June 2010 (UTC)


බිඟුවා@siwikipedia[edit]

This request is X mark.svg Not done, due to the request requiring at least 75% voter approval, and a CheckUser conducted because of oppose-reasons, confirming enough users as sockpuppets of eachother to not meet the minimum requirement. Laaknor 13:25, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
I'm having 75% voter approval, 12 supports, 4 oppose. please recheck this issue? -- බිඟුවා සාකච්ඡාව 14:25, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
At least 6 of the supporters where confirmed sockpuppets, so the 75% voter approval-requirement is not met. Laaknor 15:20, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

ThurnerRupert@bm.wikipedia.org[edit]

Would like to edit css, like http://bm.wikipedia.org//w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Common.css, and there is only one admin, who recommends taking this way, see http://bm.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Discussion_utilisateur:ThurnerRupert ThurnerRupert 23:54, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

what is the recommended proceeding for not very active wiki's, or for wikis with inexperienced users? see http://bm.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utilisateur:Emijrp/List_of_Wikipedians_by_number_of_edits. --ThurnerRupert 19:01, 2 June 2010 (UTC)
just start a local voting and, if in the next 2 weeks you will not reach any negative comment, we could grant you a temporary sysopship.--Nick1915 - all you want 01:23, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
for the request below: we usually don't grant temp 'crat access, so, if the community is too small, consequently the project doesn't need a bureaucrat and we (stewards) are able to substitute them for the required tasks--Nick1915 - all you want 01:31, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Please note that 3 of the voters are already sysop on that wiki and also 2 of them are seem to be active who voted in favour of him. --User:Parthava 04:12, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Nomination March 18. No opposition, 18 supports, one ambiguous. en.wikiversity Bureaucrat Cormaggio suggested waiting one more week for comment on April 15, and another bureaucrat, Mu301 (mikeu) agreed. Attempts have been made to contact both bureaucrats since then (see [2], [3] and email was sent. Please close the request with respect to Jtneil as local Bureaucrat so that he can handle the remaining adminship requests. Thanks. Abd 12:28, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

It has been a hell of a ride, I really enjoyed working with you all but all recent actions including the Jimbo Wales story and the Dutch Wikipedia re-welcoming a person (MarkMu) who stalked and harrased me in real life is enough for me to quit.

Thnks for the trust I had and thanks for the great time. Huib talk 17:43, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Sumivec@cswiki[edit]

Please remove user's admin rights. His self-resignation (rezignace na funkci správce in Czech). After his resignation user declared "wikiholiday". Thanks. --Dezidor 22:46, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Sounds like a rage quit from a deletion conflict. Should we give a day or two for them to think over it? --Jyothis 22:52, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Please hold on, I'll contact Sumivec about this first. --Mercy 07:40, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
I wonder a bit about this request by a third party though my home wiki is not the Czech one. The wording of Sumivec linked in the second source is rather an emotianal announcement not a decision [11] (immediatelly after a small crash over there). -jkb- 08:19, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
He wrote that he resign and in another comments that his resignation is necessary [12] (translation [13] - In traslator I changed mou and svou that are synonymes in this case but svou can also mean "his" in different cases) and that he can not be admin [14] (translation: [15] ). --Dezidor 08:35, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Innv[edit]

This user turned out to be a bad-faith social experiment on how much power can a sockpuppet of banned user gain. Needs to be revoked of all priveleges and probably locked. vvvt 17:46, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

I think we need a little more information than this. Removing all rights across all wikis (where most of the wikis are big wikis with their own desysop-policies) would be against policies... Could you post more information here, or email me or another steward with more information so that we could take a look at the situation? Laaknor 21:01, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
Has Innv been notified of this request? Also, is this really the proper venue for this type of discussion? Tiptoety talk 19:54, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
There is indeed not much to do across-the-board, but a review of global sysop-rights is warranted. Seb az86556 01:09, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
I will note that [16] states any Steward may remove a users GS flag if they feel the tool has been misused. That said, I am not sure there has been any evidence that the GS tool specifically has been abused or misused. I feel that the other option listed, a request for comment, would be a more appropriate venue. Tiptoety talk 01:21, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
Well, first of all, I asked. Seb az86556 01:23, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
When you give me the chance to note something: user Innv is working and involved on more projects with some rights, just like on sourceswiki where I am admin and would like to know something precise; the first ominous notice in this chapter above is very irritating because it says nothing but too much. Either it should be cleared or deleted here. Thanks. -jkb- 16:20, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Update (after the fact) - this is being discussed in more detail here. Innv's account may or may not have been hacked, but he seems to have asked to be blocked on ru, and was voting on meta a week later. SJ · talk | translate 12:55, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

Well, if you consider, that behaving like this will be better for the project, so let it be so. My main aim will be bringing the project to life back. I hope I'll be able to do this. P.S. Because sometimes I need to edit the MediaWiki and I can not because I am not admin. In the Abkhazian Wikipedia to do very much. I began translating in Betawiki, I want to connect the Abkhazian speaking people. I think we need to block some of the pages, some erase, because poem or silly not needed. People come under the hidden IP and proofread and contaminating debris on Wikipedia. Sometimes sorry for this project, because write silly, without neutrality, addressing various conflict issues. I hope you all also take into account. Thank you:) -Temuri 18:17, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Ikatz@euwiktionary[edit]

Hello, I'm Ikatz. I am the most active user of the Basque wiktionary and I want to be administrator. Now there are two administrators, but one of them never accesses to wiktionary and the second adminstrator accesses a little bit. Sometimes when there is vandalism, often spend days or even weeks before they are deleted and punished. Moreover, in the Basque wiktionary there are many things to do but some of them I can not do because I am not an administrator. I have not presented at the cafe to be adminstrator because there are only the second manager mentioned above and me. Besides the second administrator is who recommended me introduce myself just to administrator and I thought it wouldn't be necessary to vote in the cafe because it has already offered their support. Forgive me for my bad English. Thanks. --EH-Ikatz answer here 22:59, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Please do go to your local discussion area and mention that you'd like to help out. If there are no objections after a few days we can make you a temporary admin but we do like to see you ask for community input. After you do, come back and link to the discussion. Thanks. ++Lar: t/c 23:11, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

As per a similar situation involving the user Bengoa on the same project, I'm applying parity and emulating Birdy's decision on that case, from July 25, 2009: adminship is granted for six months, expiring June 15, 2010, with the possibility of conversion to permanent adminship provided a minimum community input can be secured by then.

Jagwar at mg.wiktionary[edit]

I would like to have importer rights on mg.wiktionary. No, it's not for transwiki importation but it for XML-file importation.

Thanks ! --Jagwar 交談 homewiki 10:53, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
