The admin voting was done a few months ago with 100% support. Isn't the 1 year policy global? --Juhko 08:29, 1 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Voting is still in effect because no any policy says no. I see its difficult to understand so do I have to receive comment from 2-4 (?) active users, or renew teh voting? --Juhko 08:58, 1 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A lot can change in several months. For example, Juhko has been blocked on fiwiki (home wiki) since the vote ended: "Yes (on 20:06, 01 June 2010 till 22:44, 02 October 2014 by Otrfan; Reason: jatkettu estoa neljällä vuodella)" Given that, another vote is absolutely needed on acewiki, IMO. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 23:42, 7 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bureaucrat access


I am very active in the Karachay-Balkar Wikipedia and will continue so. Unfortunately, there are not many users in our Wikipedia. But we will continue to work. If I get a bureaucrat access, then our Wikipedia will become an independent and will not disturb anyone else. I hope for your understanding. Thank you. --Iltever 12:44, 14 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We tend to like to see a wiki have two bcrats. You are currently the only admin. I think Stewards can easily continue to deal with rights on the krc wiki for the time being. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 12:51, 15 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I totally disagree with Daniel. When a community asks for a bureaucrat they gain independence. It is good when stewards are not needed. Iltever has shown repeatedly to be a champion for his community, he has the trust of his community and this is more relevant then a fuzzy preference for two bureaucrats. GerardM 14:34, 15 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
In the project should be more active users (and admins). If there is only one user, who is the admin and bureaucrat, it threatens to take over the project. I would suggest mark request as refused, the same as other similar requests. LeinaD (t) 14:44, 15 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
According to Ethnologue, there are around ~100,000 of speakers of Karachay-Balkar language (yes, numbers are confusing, but the most precise one says somewhat more than 100,000). Counting that Internet access in Karachay-Balkar region is significantly lower than in, let's say, Lusatia (where Sorbian languages are spoken), we can't expect more than 10 active users for a long time. Thus, I would give to Iltever bureaucrat permissions. If something goes wrong, we can remove his permissions. The only requirement should be a clear explanation at Administrators page on krc.wp (in Karachay-Balkar, Russian and English) that any user can come here and report abuse of admin and bureaucrat permissions (in Russian or English). Before giving those permissions, I would like to hear other stewards that they feel convinced :) --Millosh 00:02, 16 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There are more than 300 thousand (Russian Census 2002) Karachay-Balkars just in Russia, and 97% of them use the language. :)
However, you're right, unfortunately we can't expect many active users for a long time. Of course I'll perform your requirement, and thank you for your confidence. :) --Iltever 01:54, 16 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I want to give one more note: With admins who are able to give bot flags, bureaucratship in such circumstances wouldn't be necessary. However, this is not yet solved and we [stewards] should solve this issue in the future. --Millosh 07:55, 16 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just to say that Iltever made requested page krc:Википедия:Администраторла and I may confirm that Russian and English version are the same (which matters, as the most of Karachay-Balkar speakers also speak Russian). I would ask Mav and Leinad to reconsider their positions :) --Millosh 05:36, 17 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Iltever is doing great job at The bureaucrat access will help him much as he will no longer need to go to meta for every minor task like bot flag or similar, the task always painful for us, non-natives in English. There is no much danger of his „overtaking“ the project, since he has proved to be a very adequate wikipedician with strong concerns about neutrality and quality. He does much not only in the Wikipedia itself but also in popularising it and generally the use of Karachay-Balkar in written form on the web; he also helps with useful advice and his newly acquired experience to other smaller wikipedias within the Russian language region (notably for me, to Amikeco 06:38, 17 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'd like to see what other stewards think, since what I said is still my understanding of our best practice. I'm willing to be convinced that this is a special case. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 01:18, 24 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

just my 2 cents I think that bureaucrat' flag should not be regarded as reward, but just as tech role... in a small community of 10 members, every bureaucrat' tasks could be easily carried out by stewards--Nick1915 - all you want 16:29, 5 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
But, we shouldn't treat bureaucrat permissions as a big deal. At least in the cases where no significant number of users are expected. --Millosh 18:36, 14 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Even when no significant number of users are expected to the wiki, the one/few users that do exist on the wiki can become dictators and scare away the rest of the (future) users. The reason for not giving out bureaucrat-rights if the wiki isn't large, isn't about "the big deal" of 'cratsship, but making sure we don't create "a big deal" for one of the users, before the rest of the users have arrived on the wiki, and can learn that it isn't a big deal. Also, this has been discussed a lot of times in the last months, when people ask for 'cratsship, so I think we should get it into the policies soon. Laaknor 07:30, 16 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
But, he has already made a page for administrators where it is clearly explained what someone should do in the case of admin/bureaucrat permissions abuse. I think that this is enough clear for any reasonable person if they recognize abuse. Besides that, it is not the most important reason for making a dictatorship at one wiki. We have numerous examples of wiki-dictatorships based on community decision to give to someone some permissions. We should assume good faith especially because it is always possible to remove any permission. --Millosh 04:41, 23 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As this is still in process, I would probably tend to give bc access to Iltever, although I don't feel very good with that. There is however no reason to mistrust him, and we don't yet have a policy to not giving rights to small communities. We should of course start the process to make such a policy very soon (maybe we can discuss that here in Gdansk in the next two days... ;) ) --თოგო (D) 12:56, 9 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

After a long discussion with Thogo and Millosh here on Wikimania, I have comed to the conclusion that this should be granted, as we do not currently have a policy against it, AGF and the fact that the community is working as good as it can. So Yes check.svg Done Laaknor 21:47, 11 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes check.svg Done for 3 months to expire on 2010-07-11 as there is no present admin there.--Jusjih 02:14, 11 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Local community is small, so I think 3 votes are enough. Beaukarpo is the top contributor and currently the only one ethnic Tibetan who is active in this project. Kind regards. Wisconsus 09:56, 14 April 2010 (UTC) 4 votes already. --Wisconsus 09:23, 15 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We can grant only temporary rights, since the community is too small. --FiliP ██ 10:37, 15 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If there were 5 votes, would it be enough for indefinite sysop rights? --Wisconsus 18:57, 15 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Usually not, since We have global sysops to fill that shoe mostly. We usually approve temp sysops for the active members of a small community to do project/lang specific work, provided there are no objections for about a week's vote on RfA page or Main talk page of the project. When a project has considerable size of users and activity, community can elect a permanent sysop on their own. Hope this helps --Jyothis 19:32, 15 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Miscellaneous requests

Devunt@testwiki for Import

re-request but exclude povwatch--Devunt 16:08, 4 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Testwiki has their own method of handing out permissions (1) - Hoo man 16:12, 4 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm crat of testwiki, but import per only can handle by steward. --Devunt 12:39, 7 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
X mark.svg Not done As sysop you have default permission to "transwiki" pages. Import permission (import by upload)is very sensible and not recommended by developers per security reasons. Anyway I don't see any reason to grant this permission. Regards - @lestaty discuţie 22:47, 7 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

MedaWiki:Proofreadpage index

Status:    Done

Could not find a good place for this request!

Change s:da:MediaWiki:Proofreadpage index namespace from "index" to "indeks" according to this. The project has one active sysop with <50 edits this year. -- Lavallen 17:39, 12 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Interface translations should not be done locally. I have changed the message in translatewiki: and it will be updated on all wikimedia-wide projects in one day or so. If you are interested in doing interface translations you can join that project. Please advice if something more is needed. Regards, --dferg ☎ talk 06:49, 13 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanx! But I do not think I will be authorised to translate to danish on translatewiki, when it's not my own language. -- Lavallen 07:59, 13 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's really not all that hard to get translator access there, and it can come in handy if you want to do this sort of work in the future. You may want to check, but I don't think they bind you to working on a specific language. Kylu 20:25, 19 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Status:    Done

Please grant confirmed flag to per request even for 4 days only (then user will get autoconfirmed), I'm a local bureaucrat and I would have done it by myself if possible since there's enough consesus to do it. --17:44, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
