Administrator access


Hello, again. I have requests for temporary adminship in Russian Wikibooks. Our community is very small because of that we have problems with amount of votes. I hope it is not big problem. Best regards. - Iniquity 14:10, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Mistake, I requested for "permanent" adminship. Sorry. Best. - Iniquity 13:09, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

I am Teele Vaalma (global username Adeliine), a board member of Wikimedia Estonia. I am asking for sysop rights to change wiki interface (i.e. links on the sidebar should be suitable for the organization - contact, membership etc.), manage pages (delete, protect from editing), blocking vandals if necessary.

Ganesh Paudel @


I have been working with Nepali Wikipedia since 2006. I have edited more than 4000 pages and created more than 3000 pages in Nepali Wikipedia pages. I have already edited some pages in English and Sanskrit wiki pages too.

I have applied for sysop last year. I was granted a temporary sysop flag for six months. Now it is expired. So I request for permanent sysop now. Thank you. --गणेश पौडेल 07:10, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

You started the local request on 2010-11-09. I would like to wait for a few more days. To become permanent sysop, I am waiting for a few more solid votes, better 5 to 10 votes minimum.Jusjih 04:36, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

I request admin access on the newly created Venetian Wikisource. Regards, Candalua 21:56, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Ehm... excuse me, but I've got a lot of things to do on the new wiki, when can I have the flag? I'm already sysop on oldwikisource (where the content of the new wiki was hosted before the creation of vec) Candalua 17:48, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Well the discussion has only been open for a few days, no? I would prefer to leave it open for a week. Shanel 16:17, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Honestly, I don't understand... This wiki will not be fully functional until I've created the necessary css and js, fixed the links on the menu bar, created some system messages needed by the proofread extension etc. etc. etc. I know that a week isn't long, but in the meantime we can't do almost anything on this wiki... Candalua 21:50, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

A week has passed. Can I have the flag, please? Candalua 17:13, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

<humour>You better close this project for disfunctionality</humour>. Either, you should announce a creation of a project some weeks ago and the community could vote the admins on the incubator or oldwikisource. Or you should NOT create a project. -jkb- 19:23, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Huh! I didn't know that such elections could be run before a project is created: Candalua actually announced the impending creation of vec.source some weeks some weeks ago, but we all waited for this creation to actually take place, and in the meantime it's been self-explanatory that Candalua was the ideal candidate to administrate it. I'll remember this particular feature: on Incubator and Oldwikisource admins can be assigned to a project before the project itself is created. And however... Candalua was already elected sysop on OldWikisource. -jkb- is active on Oldwikisource, and he surely know this so I don't really address this message to him, but rather I don't want anyone to have the wrong interpretation of Candalua's words. εΔω 22:58, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
This is not the problem of wrong interpretation, but another one that should be discussed on another place. The fact is: in the last time there were created some more projects (frr:wiki, pfl:wiki etc.) that have been paralysed because of an absolute lack of admins, and this is an unsustainable situation. The vec.source has been created on Nov 14, Candalua got his right on Nov 22. See above his remarks. -jkb- 11:59, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Maybe the project's proposer could be given temporary rights immediately at the project's creation, just for the time it takes to organise an election? Candalua 20:30, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Please get the interface translations completed in translatewiki at the earliest. --Jyothis 19:51, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Er... Candalua has patiently translated almost every single message involving* interface, and if he states so it means that some messages, mediawiki js and css are peculiar in the Wikisource interface and aren't included in translatewiki set. Candalua was elected sysop on Oldwikisource also because of this. εΔω 22:58, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Orbilius, technically speaking, Jyothis is right: some messages are not translated, because were added or modified just in the last weeks. But I'm afraid I'm not translating them, unless they're very important messages. The interfaces messages are simply too many, if I was a MediaWiki developer I'd think about shortening the messages, reusing the same message when it's possible, and using simpler words that everyone can understand and that are easier to translate.

P.S. if someone points me to the "right place" for these things, we can continue the discussion there. Candalua 20:30, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

On 16 October 2009, voting page was created to desysop Ruben, as community though that Ruben was inactive for long time. The very next day, logs were rechecked and we've noticed that Ruben actually performed sysop duties, but we looked though his contributions not logs, so we missed that. After that, that voting was cancelled, and Ruben remained sysop, and performed his duties several times later. Year later, in October 2010, user 6AND5 placed his vote, on very same page. In Village pump, when he asked to vote, I explained that he used a wrong place to vote for that. That was a reason for rest of community not to participate in voting. Nor did anyone replied in support of that idea. User 6AND5 didn't took any actions to create new voting, but month later, he posted here a request to desysop Ruben, providing link to that old voting. I believe stewards didn't notice that all but one vote, were from 2009 year, and couldn't understand that there was a notice, that voting is cancelled, as it was in Armenian. As Ruben was desysoped because of series of misunderstandings, and without actual community decision, I request his flag to be brought back. --Xelgen 23:00, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Since I was the steward performing the desysop I would like to apologise for the error. Since I do not speak Armenian myself I used several translators so that I could figure out what was happening there. If the vote was cancelled indeed the rights should be restored as the wiki do not have local bureaucrats. Thanks for bringing this to our attention & sorry for any inconvenience that I may have caused. --dferg ☎ talk 23:19, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. Language issue is natural and understandable. There's also my fault, not to take care of this earlier, and not being active recently, so I can guide new users. I believe user had good intentions, he just doesn't clearly understand how projects work. Thanks for fixing this in a timely manner. --Xelgen 01:01, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
Xelgen tells a lie. On the same page was opened on the second ballot. 1 vote, 0 votes against, why did he only remembered about it now?[2] 6AND5 13:07, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

Zawthet@Myanmar Wikipedia

I would like to request for Bureaucrat access in Myanmar Wikipedia as there is no active local Bureaucrat. Zawthet 09:36, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Um, while it's awfully nice of you to pre-decline the request diff, you should probably wait at least a couple weeks first and see if you get some votes. Kylu 02:14, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

On wikt:gl:, Albert galiza was elected as a new bureaucrat. Grant him the status, please. Thanks. [ Furagaitas * ] 18:50, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

I'm tending to decline this request. The RfC is setting that we need 10/15 votes to promote somebody to bureaucrat status. Two votes is not even enough for promoting somebody to permanent sysop status. Comments welcome. --dferg ☎ talk 23:02, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done Kylu 16:59, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
so this RFC is policy now? Seb az86556 15:22, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
The RFC is not policy, but I doubt that you will find a steward who will promote someone to bureaucrat where there are a total of two votes and the existing bureaucrat was not, as far as I can tell, contacted at all. This is, of course, exactly the reason I started that RfC to begin with: So we'd have a firm policy and when "obvious" declines like this come up, they can be handled with a minimum of fuss. Kylu 15:33, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
OK, I was just making sure; I don't oppose this request's being declined, I was just stunned by the reason given. The RFC ain't over/done yet and I'm still not sure about a lot of the stuff that's been said there. Thanks Kyulu. Seb az86556 15:58, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Akishin D.@ruwikinews

Sorry, I don't understand how many votes I should have. Thank you.Дмитрий talk+ 13:30, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Well, I imagine it's safe to state that one isn't enough. Usually we want to see a minimum of 15, but that number is rather variable and nobody's much been involved in the discussion about it lately. Want to keep your vote open longer? Kylu 03:07, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
In our project we can not have so much votes. I get only 9 votes. Do Meta have some time limit for voting?Дмитрий talk+ 14:37, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
To avoid violating "meatpuppetry" guidelines, it'd be preferable that the teenage voters don't have enough time to meet eachother, get married, have children, and those children have grandchildren, all of which are voting on the same issue. Other than that, there's not really any huge guideline, so let's say a maximum of ten years, to be on the safe side? Kylu 13:12, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
I'm noting that the diffs for the first six votes are on n:ru:Викиновости:Заявки на статус бюрократа by the way, as Akishin D. copied them over to the new page without linking to the source in the edit summaries. Kylu 16:55, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
I am copied them from n:ru:Викиновости:Заявки на статус бюрократа. Look at the history. Дмитрий talk+ 13:46, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
Yep! Was just noting that for readers who might look at the history of the page and say to themselves, "Um, why did Akishin add all these votes signed by other people?" -- Just trying to save you from having to answer that question yourself, potentially. :) Kylu 17:08, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
I write comment about it. Дмитрий talk+ 14:46, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Murma174 @ frrwiki

There were only 7 pro's received, but considering, frr is a minority language, this is an acceptable quote IMO. --Murma174 09:57, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Comment Comment There's an ongoing (if slow) discussion at Requests_for_comment/Minimum_voting_requirements#Minimum_requirements_to_elect_Bureaucrats which you may want to join regarding the subject of how many votes are required to prove that a local community is active enough to qualify for local bureaucrats. To protect your project, you may want to consider implementing an inactivity policy of some sort, along the lines of "If I'm inactive for X months, people with access may perform bureaucrat related tasks in my stead". Just a thought. Kylu 16:21, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Personally I agree with you. To my mind local sysops should lose their flags in case of inactivity, just for security reasons. -- Quentinv57 20:42, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
We do not have any policy allowing us to remove rights just because users are inactive. This needs to be discussed locally (and a user talk-page isn't a local discussion, it's a discussion with one local user). X mark.svg Not done Laaknor 20:45, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

At the top of this page I see : « This page is for requests to have stewards grant or revoke administrator, bureaucrat, checkuser, and oversight rights on Wikimedia wikis which do not have a local permissions procedure ». As there is no local permissions procedure it seem the right place to ask for a flag revocation.

I also see : « Please only make requests here after gaining the on-wiki approval of your local community. ». The approval of the unique active user (ie unique member of the communauty) is the approval of the local community.

How do you think we should establish a local consensus on a wiki with no users ? What is the global policy about removal of flags, considering that the flag was granted after a consultation of 3 days, with 2 opinions ? There is now the same number of users to ask for the removal localy (me and Natsubee) and you could add Quentinv57 who also edited there :p

It's very strange to be very permissive on the acquisition of a flag, and so strict for it's removal. Furthermore on an inactive account.

--Hercule 21:01, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

It's what I've been saying all along, but policy is as follows: permanent admins get to keep their flag even if they don't do anything while those who are actually active must run to meta every 3 or 6 months, because they don't have enough votes; if you want to change that, you need to hold a vote, which you cannot because you don't have enough votes.

Dear stewards, after 3 years of adminship I feel it's time to begin rediscovering the "other side" of both this project and its community. I feel it's in the interest of the project to leave the job to a new generation, who may seek for different solutions. This may also rejuvenate my own feelings and enthusiasm. I also consider standing candidate in our local arbcom election. In such a case I don't think it's good for the project or myself to fill two responsible positions at the same time.

angwiki is a very small wiki that has two inactive sysops. I found it needing some administrative action which I took and found a small but active community. Wōdenhelm emailed me asking for admin rights because he had an old RFA that passed but was never acted on. I reran a new RFA for him (and one other who is yet to accept). Wōdenhelm's passed 3-0 (very small wiki). So could a steward review the RFA and the old RFA and decide to give the mop to Wōdenhelm at angwiki? Thx :) fr33kman t - c 02:08, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

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)

In view of the fact that bureaucrat right has been granted as an exception to the policy, it must be on special condition: temporary access. Bureaucrat right has been turned into temporary access, expires: 8-11-2010. Please come back a few days before the status expires to prolong it or hold a local voting if the community grows.

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.

Yes, is apparently not yet accessible. I'll have to wait a few minutes before I can create an account. SPQRobin (talk) 20:01, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
It's still not accessible. There's apparently something wrong with the setup... SPQRobin (talk) 23:45, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
Those who tried to access it before the DNS entry was created, need to flush the resolver cache. Execute ipconfig /flushdns. --Arseny1992 00:10, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Kayau@zhwikibooks for import

This user applied for importing right on 2010-10-03 and received 3 supports without objections. I am referring this to any disinterested steward. Jusjih 04:03, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

I would like to have the confirmed-flag on recently started sv.wikiversity to help with page-moves. At present, a lot of pages are positioned as they were on Beta. --Lavallen 13:44, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, rights will expire in a week (28-11-2010). By that time you'll probably have autoconfirmed status. If not please poke us again. Archiving copy in SR/AT shortly. --dferg ☎ talk 21:59, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
