Administrator access

Shimmin Beg@gvwikipedia

Applying for admin status as recommended by Alison and MacTire02. I have been a temporary admin before, and am a long-serving and regular contributor to the wiki and interface translator. At present we have one sysop and no admin one administrator. This would be useful for handling page and category deletions (a frequent issue as terminology is not settled), and for editing locked CSS files; I work on templates quite a lot, and often imported templates expect CSS from en.wiki which we don't yet have. It would also provide some backup for MacTire. -- Shimmin Beg 18:18, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

sysop=admin. Ruslik 19:10, 27 November 2011 (UTC)
Apologies, I just borrowed the word from the talk page and for some reason assumed it meant bureaucrat. I've amended the request accordingly.-- Shimmin Beg 20:13, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

Hello. Did you open a local discussion to get a community consensus ? I don't really see why you need sysop access on this wiki, you have created your account there yesterday ! Cordially, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 19:11, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
I opened it here, but last discussions were answered after half a year. I don't need personally a sysop account, but I think this wiki needs one (there isn't any), and I'm disposed to help. Regards. Mr.Ajedrez 19:30, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
This is only my mind, but I don't really understand why you need to be a local sysop on a wiki you created an account on only yesterday. I don't see here the absolute necessity for this project to have an admin. Apart from bots and global users, I see no activity there. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 19:54, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

Mardetanha@fa.wikiquote

We are doing the process of desysoping inactive admins on the Persian Wikimedia projects. I noticed that Bureaucrat access was granted to Mardetanha on Persian Wikiquote without any consensus. Here is conversation that User:Sajad has granted the crat access to Mardetanha.
Translation of the conversation:

Sajad: Hi, considering the facts that I'm busy these days and your [good] records [in the Wikimedia projects] and the need of our community to a crat, I grant this access to you temporarily.
Mardetanha: Thank you very much.

This is definitely unacceptable. Persian Wikiquote is a small community that doesn't need a crat at all (although it has) and if it large enough to have two crats, they must be elected and not selected. Why this access has to be granted to Mardetanha without any consensus or appropriate reason? I asked Mardetnaha to make a requst himself and give it back but he refused. I hereby ask you to remove his crat access on Persian Wikiquote. Thanks in advance. Americophile 10:00, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Not done. The link you provide quite evidently does not have any community consensus to remove Mardetanha's bureaucrat access on the Persian Wikiquote. Only with valid community consensus would we remove this access. PeterSymonds (talk) 10:09, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
You mean that it is not important at all that how he has obtained his accesses? I made a request to remove administrator and crat access of User:Kaveh on Persian Wikisource and luckily it was done, but some hours later Mardetanha was talking about granting the removed access to him in case of return. This is obviously a breach of policies. Do you mean that is not important to you that how the administrator and crat access are granted on small projects? You just grant the crat access to the fist user and he makes every user he likes an administrator or crat? That's absolute nonsense. Americophile 10:25, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
I wouldn't put it quite like that, but effectively once a project has a local bureaucrat, they handle the granting of sysop/bureaucrat permisions on that project. We would therefore not intervene without a valid local consensus. Your alternative is to start a request for comment on the issue, but I would suggest talking to the Persian Wikiquote community first. At the moment, you are the only one apparently objecting to Mardetanha having this level of access. PeterSymonds (talk) 10:30, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
Starting an RfC seems to be useless and just waste of time. Thanks anyway. Americophile 10:37, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

First, we decided to have a fixed number of sysops (passed 6x1); then we choose 5 as this number of sysops (passed 3x2); and later we choose the 5 sysops. During the discussion, we choose to have two crats: the most voted candidates (passed 3x0). CasteloBrancomsg 00:06, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Strommops@als.wikipedia

Some crazy person in Hungary calling himself Varga Lajos has been posting various messages on als.wikipedia since August, apparently because he is upset that the inactive admin Strommops didn't respond to some question he had (see here). Long story short: he eventually started stalking Strommops in real life, who apparently happens to have moved to Hungary of all places to learn the language, then managed to hack into Strommops's Gmail and Wikipedia-account, giving us an ultimatum to block Strommops or otherwise he would block all of us. Even though he hasn’t carried out his threat so far, a hacked Sysop-account is obviously still a threat regardless, and the account should be desysoped (but not blocked yet) until it we can be sure that Strommops is back in control. On a side note: Strommops's adminship would be due to expire soon anyways due to inactivity. --Terfili 15:05, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Wikimol@cswiki

CheckUser_policy#Removal_of_access says that Any user account with CheckUser status that is inactive for more than a year will have their CheckUser access removed. Only one edit (!) in last year and few edits since the end of 2009 (or 2007) is example of inactivity. Somebody with "activity" like Wikimol is not able to control another checkuser and understand context of checkuser requests. --Dezidor 15:43, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Hello. I'm about to process this request, but please note that the second checkuser, Mormegil‏‎, will also see his checkuser status removed since a wiki must have at least two checkusers or none at all. On the contrary, you should elect a new checkuser. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 16:05, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
For more transparency, I asked for community input here. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 16:09, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
I would probably vote for Mormegil and other good candidates in next election but current state is simply a long-term violation of our rules. --Dezidor 16:14, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Comment Comment - If Wikimol is removed, Mormegil does not loose permanently his/her CheckUser status; it's only suspended till another CheckUser could be appointed. Is Wikimol also inactive as CheckUser (no checks performed in a year)? Thanks. —Marco Aurelio (Nihil Prius Fide) 16:32, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Mormegil is active. He answers all requests (not always performing the actual check). Last check has been performed yesterday, two checks in September etc. --Pavel Jelínek, 17:10, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Mormegil is active and useful. Problem is that Wikimol is not active and we have discussions about transparency because nobody can´t control Mormegil. I trust him but doubt that confidence of me and the majority of editors may be valid reason for the violation of rules and having only one active checkuser. --Dezidor 17:15, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Thanks Pavel Jelínek. I was refering to Wikimol, as Mormegil is obviously active. Sorry if my wording above was unclear. I've corrected it. Thanks. —Marco Aurelio (Nihil Prius Fide) 17:13, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Comment Comment I have not much to say, it’s on Wikimol to comment, I guess. The only comment I can provide is Wikimol’s own (though a bit outdated) statement that even though he is not actively editing Wikipedia, he monitors it, including watching the CU log (but would be happy to resign as soon as a new checkuser gets elected). And no, he is not actively using the CU tool to check anything (his last check is from the beginning of 2010), reading CU logs is not logged.
--Mormegil (cs) 16:41, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Would it not be possible to elect a new CheckUser in the near future? I think we can hold off until then, but it would be nice to have a new election sooner rather than later. PeterSymonds (talk) 18:49, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Comment Comment Well, my position is still the same - I'd myself like to resign as soon as new checkuser is elected. (I've initiated an checkuser election last year, but no candidates.) Regarding my activity I'm still generally watching Checkuser-l, sometimes I look what's new under 'Pod lípou' and sometimes check the logs. (Mormegil is using the tool very reasonably.) From the above discussion I'd like to counter the statement that "nobody can´t control Mormegil" - if anybody wants second voice, it's quite easy to use sitemail and ask me to check some results - even if I'm not editing Wikipedia, I can check the logs in matter of hours. (And btw I actually got such private communication.)
So to summarize, I'd propose new elections are held, and once a new checkuser is elected, I'll resign (or my permission could be removed per this request, whatever :-). In my opinion immediate suspension of Mormegil's rights as a result of removal of mine would do more harm than than good. As a last point, I find it a bit odd that Dezidor didn't bother to contact me before creating this request - even if I have just one edit I'm alive and replying to mails quite fast. --Wikimol 10:52, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

Piero Montesacro@it.wikipedia

Following an indefatigable libelous "campaign" pushed ahead for years against me as an admin (I served for five years) and a user on itwiki, I am here to ask for my deflag. The campaing has involved, among others, "anonymous" blogs posing as "independent improvers" of Wikipedia (sic!) and counted even on an article by a newspaper, citing almost verbatim the formers. For the sake of the Project, I have always ignored, and have never reacted, to such campaign, being reconfirmed four times in a row as sysop (by about 80% of voters each year). During the last year, however, users of "thematic projects" on "war" (and the like) on it.wiki (counting also on the pivotal involvement of users previously blocked - or warned - on en.wiki as pov pushers, but left quite free to act on itwiki), have enthusiastically joined the campaign, which is currently very active. As a result, the it.wiki community is quite divided about my adminship, and during the current, yearly scheduled vote to reconfirm my status, more than 33% is calling for my deflag, at least to "remove" - removing me - a "pretext" to perform external attacks against the whole Project. At this point, I see no other option than asking myself for my immediate deflag as the best I can do for preserving my honour and my Home Project. Thank you for your continued support to Wikimedia Projects. --Piero Montesacro 02:02, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

  • Comment Comment I think that if you're resigning influenced by a "troll campaign", you're giving them victory. As we're (probably) not aware of the situation, I'd appreciate if you could provide some links to the places where it occours. Striker talk 02:16, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
This is not a place for a discussion of these issues as it clearly has no bearing on the removal of the flag. Snowolf How can I help? 02:31, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Peterb@mediawiki

Petrb requested admin rights on mediawiki.org (link), only the bureaucrat who did the request made the wrong user admin (log). The admin rights have been given to the right user now by another bureaucrat, but the admin rights of Peterb still need to be removed. Thanks in advance.

Obelix@da.wikibooks

Have you tried to reach the two bureaucrats there? Please note that we may only grant temporary adminship as per the one comment only. -Barras 18:25, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
The bureaucrat Bisgaard has not been active since April 3 and and is not possible to contact by email. The other bureaucrat, Christian S, has not been active since December 13 2005. Temporary adminship would be quite acceptable. (Sorry för my bad english) Obelix 18:39, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

One question. Is the permission temporary? We'd like it to be permanent also for future uses. Is it possible? Thanks. -Aleator (talk) 17:58, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
Afaik importer rights are always not permanent, but I'll ask others about it. Trijnstel 13:21, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
I'm not really comfortable with granting a permanent import flag. For the transwiki import right, it's safer, but I would prefer to see a larger consensus before. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 14:02, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
