Administrator access


Hello, I'm the admin on Vietnamese Wikiquote. User Farewell has many positive contributions to Wikiquote during that time, and he should have sysop rights to manage the work better. Note: This is a Wikiquote project is very small, and the vote could only be a 3 (see RecentChange). Would the steward agreed, thanks minhhuy*= 01:46, 2 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes check.svg Done A completely unrelated note, but Farewell may want to either finish unification or request username usurpation on some of the other projects. German, French, Chinese and Italian Wikipedias all have a user with that name with zero edits (so he should be able to get it easily). There's a Japanese account, but it has 50 edits, so unless he can log into it already, it may be harder. This doesn't affect his getting adminship at all, of course, but might reduce confusion for him in the future. Kylu 02:04, 2 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks minhhuy and Kylu. I will have a username usurpation request on few days. :) farewell…u.t.c 02:58, 2 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sky Harbor@tl.wikibooks

I've put myself up for nomination for this project after calls from several Wikibooks users came for a new administrator. I was once a temporary admin for the Tagalog Wikibooks until my permanent replacement, Felipe Aira, was nominated. However, he is now inactive, and hopefully I can take his place to take care of massive cleanup on the project as a result of his inactivity. --Sky Harbor (talk) 14:33, 4 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There is no active community on this wikipedia and my temporary administrator access has expired. I have been fixing the translations of this wikipedia with the privileges that I was given through MediaWiki pages (some of which were deleted). There is no other active administrator on ig wikipedia and it needs one to encourage dedicated editors to join. There are also other issues that need active administrators. Thank you.

Hi, my 3 months temprory access on bhojpuri wikipedia has been expired today. I want adminship again on bhojpuri wikipedia. Nepaboy 09:04, 2 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Is there a local discussion of this, other than your talk page? You may want to try to arrange an election to see if you can get enough support for non-temporary adminship. Kylu 13:12, 2 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If I do arrange an election to get enough support who will give me vote? there are no any regular user on bhojpuri wikipedia. I would like to show you a list of user who has logged in last 30 days on bhojpuri wikipedia. Please see here. --Nepaboy 12:31, 3 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We really can't offer "deals" like, "if you get X votes in Y days, you can be an admin". We can, however, point you towards the election guidelines as they currently stand. You are, of course, free to contribute to the opinions presented on the page. Also, we do have a set of global sysops who may assist that project with administrative abilities if you'd like some support maintaining the project while awaiting the outcome of your election (or beyond). Kylu 12:05, 5 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have got few support for permanent adminship. see here Nepaboy 03:28, 8 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You might want to get a few more. I don't think anyone will make permanent adminship with only one support. Perhaps just an extension of your temporary access is more appropriate? Also, see Minimum requirements to elect permanent Administrators. Kylu 04:14, 8 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have got 2 support, sir. Nepaboy 06:17, 10 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's still not quite up to the standards requested so far, but it's kind of silly to have you visit every three months, so how about we make this last eight? Hopefully you can pick up five or more supports by 12 April 2011. Good luck! Kylu 01:43, 13 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Beaukarpo's 3 months of temporary access expired few weeks ago. It appears that he is worth getting permanent adminship. Please see a link to the local community approval for mor details. Thanks. Wisconsus 14:14, 9 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You only created the request on the sixth. Please wait until the 14th at least. If nothing else, this gives your request the opportunity to get more votes. Kylu 15:07, 9 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok. Does that mean the approval of this request will be rejected or only postponed? --Wisconsus 18:13, 9 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Postponed at the least, but so far there seems to need to be about five folks to be enough for selecting a non-temporary admin. If you'd like to help assist clarify the debate, the discussion (with the minimal amount of attention it gets) is at Requests for comment/Minimum voting requirements. Keep in mind that at the moment it's fairly difficult to remove an inactive or abusive administrator, which tends to keep the requirements higher. Kylu 18:53, 9 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes check.svg Done for 3 months through 2010-11-15 as 4 supporting votes and your community size may not yet support more permanent adminship. Once your community grows, permanent adminship will be much more likely.Jusjih 04:33, 15 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't understand what User:Betalph actually want. He had requested here days ago adminship ([2]) without any request on local project. With my advises he backed down it and begun to contribute something on ko Books. I didn't want to interrupt him because of good mind principle, though he produced massive trash and copied and pasted free contents. I called his attention to solid editing and said that page account is not really important while editing don't go with quality. He ignored. Someday he (and his probably sock, immediately created account) argued that who contributes must be admin and accused that I am a dictator because I didn't accept anyone and any opinions. As I've begun to consolidate all pages he edited, he said I ought to be impeached. I explained repeatedly why that must be done sooner or later. He has propagated false claim not only on wiki projects, but also on several outdoor sites including slander against me. ([3], [4]) Besides, I'm afraid of more bad propaganda on twitter that he himself created named @wikibook.
To his & his sock status(SUL account Betalph, SUL account Unypoly): infinite blocked on ko WP because of extreme sock puppetry and cunning harassment, former also on ko Wikt, where I'm admin. He just has been blocked also on ko Wikt.
To User:Betalph: All what I can say you is that you should radically change your attitude in order to take part in a wiki project: Harassment and slander are poison. And adminship is not the only purpose for contributing. --아흔(A-heun) 18:06, 1 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm pretty sure you don't want them to make use of their administrator privileges after their expiration of their admin tools.

If these users were nominated again, they would most likely be re-elected. Because of that, I see no reason to hurry.

I am an Igbo speaker who only wanted to translate the navigation box, only to find that special privileges are needed. I do not think there is any valid moderator left on this wiki, and by valid I mean still an active moderator, there are hardly any users, except for bots and people who last visited/edited in 2007. There really wasn't a need for a request for adminship on the wiki, because nobody is there, the last person who applied didn't get any reply. The wiki is dyeing and the main interfaces are a mix of English and Igbo which makes the whole wiki pointless. I think I could make a bit of a change. Ukabia 21:16, 1 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Since then I have increased the number of articles to over 200, including many Help pages. To have admin status would enable me to deal with any vandalism and to protect certain pages e.g. the home page. I also hope to attract more editors to get the site well and truly active.
