Hi there!

  1. Please remove my sysop bit from test.wikipedia.org; I was given them to deal with the fundraising campaign for Wikimedia Polska, and now as my responsibilities have been taken over by Leinad (talk · contribs) and the campaign finishes, I will not need them anymore. I have cleaned up all test made on the wiki for the purposes of the campaign.
  2. Additionally, please remove my translationadmin rights here on Meta; I received them to help with setting up translations here, but due to my limited time and some real-life issues I would not be able to use them, and would like to focus on other aspects of my activities in the Wikimedia world.

Swift@en.wikibooks

I'm not seeing anything in the policy about the edits per 6 months, only about the one year thing. Snowolf How can I help? 07:25, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done --FiliP ██ 07:28, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
To answer Snowolf - usual Wikibooks policy stuff - this isn't Wikipedia so you can't expect precision!
The two relevant sections from the policy page are in two separate paragraphs:
"Sysops who do not meet any activity expectations (detailed below), or those who break policy, or those who abuse their powers, can be nominated for de-adminship at the Wikibooks:Requests for permissions page."
"Administrators are expected to be active (see Sysop activity on Wikibooks). There are no hard and fast definitions on what it means to be "active" but a good guideline is to have at least 20 edits in the last year and 1 edit within the past month. Even this might not be enough, if administrator privileges have not been used (or not been used correctly) within the past year."
The reasonable interpretation of that is that inactivity is a combination of 20 edits in the last year AND 1 edit within the last month AND some use of the sysop bit in the last year.
Me, I don't care that much and have no problem letting Swift keep the bit forever. However, after a couple of emails and no response to the talk page I'm following normal practice of de-privileging accounts that may be at future risk of compromise due to an inactive owner. Cheers QU TalkQu 07:33, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
As I understand it, the policy mandates automatic desysoppal without notification and need for consensus only for accounts completely inactive for one full year, which, with 11 edits during the past year, Swift is not. Now he's clearly inactive, hasn't used the tools in forever, etc., but my impression was that there was a requirement for consensus to remove for inactivity without the automatic clause ("Sysops who are especially inactive, specifically for at least one year or longer, can be removed without a consensus discussion."), which a simple notice by yourself without anybody else commenting on it clearly cannot fullfill. That said, as Dungodung clearly interprets the policy differently and has performed a desysop, it's a mute issue. Snowolf How can I help? 07:41, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
I do think it is important actually. The smaller projects (and I'm sure this is generally true) haven't spent years and hundreds of editors contributions to writing policies that would stand up in a court of law. For this reason you do have to rely somewhat on previous interpretation of the policy instead of trying to create a new interpretation every time. In this case (and I got bored at three) you can see previous de-sysops one (...while this user was active as recently as September, they have made less than 20 edits in the past year and not used the tools in a year, fulfilling both definitions of inactivity according to the policy) and two (...the below administrators / bureaucrats have been inactive for one year or longer besides a few spare edits.) and three (...'Fewer than 20 edits in the last year, no edit in the last month. Admin tools used only once in the past year) as examples of previous application of the same policy. Two of these had one "supporter" only by the way which was me. It's pretty normal for nobody to oppose or support an inactivity de-sysop. Incidentally, we're probably going to need to tighten up a load of the policy wordings at WB simply because this issue of "intepretation" keeps coming up. Cheers QU TalkQu 08:06, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

User Juandev@cs.wikiversity

Upon the community consensus (4 agree ("souhlas, souhlasím"), 1 disagree ("nesouhlasím")) I would like to ask for importer's rights on cs.wv. I would like to help with importing pages from wikies, for which transwiki import is not enabled. Within the time, I would like to cooperate with developers in enabling such import to transwiki import.

Note that this request was here about month ago. When I realized I don't have rights, I started to search what happened. It can be seen here: User talk:PeterSymonds#Rights removal. Basically, user:Danny B., who doesn't like me, probably manipulated steward to remove my importer rights. After discussion with PeterSymonds, I would like repeat the request. As I don't see objections presented "somewhere" by Danny B. Danny B. presented his non-supportive point of view on cs.wv, which was discussed by community (if you like, I will translate that discussion to English). Juandev (talk) 17:03, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done PeterSymonds removed the right [5] due to local concerns. I understand those concerns and stand by PeterSymonds' actions and endorse the removal. You will have to run a completely new request local on cswikiversity that includes more of the community, addresses the decenting opinion and has at least a two-three week run period. As such, this request is denied. fr33kman 19:26, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
Well, this is really "interesting" situation and bureaucratic step. PeterSymonds removed the right upon private request of Danny B. on IRC (which is not even log it anywhere!), which is in personal dispute with Juandev (or Juandev is in personal dispute with Danny B., just make it politically neutral). The result of election on cs.versity is relatively easy. 4 people are supporting, one is again (and "surprisingly" is the person which was asking out of official canals). So because of private and non-official request of Danny B., you are ignoring results of local community and trying to make a new election. Yes, it makes sense... And again, I do not really care if Juandev will have or not the rights, however this procedure of ignoring local community and private request without logs is strongly unethical and contra-productive. --Chmee2 (talk) 07:48, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
Well if the user who is editing 2,5 month (user:JKoci) is not a community for you. Tell me, who is a community for you? Without that we can't move forward. On Czech Wikipedia it is enough to be editing one month and have 30 edits. For you 2,5 month is not enough. There is also a very small community, so I notified users, who had recent activity. So could you list me here usernames of people, who will be recognized for community consensus please? Thanks.--Juandev (talk) 07:49, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
Acquaintances and informal contacts are therefore more than the decision of the community? --Tlusťa (talk) 08:03, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Fr33kman, please, could you be more specific? What are the "local concerns" and "objections"? --egg (talk) 00:03, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Basically the election needs to be redone from scratch. The original election took place in January, then the flag was removed, under some controversy. I have nothing to say about the removal or reinstatement of the flag, however I do think that a new election needs to take place to avoid controversy. fr33kman 15:49, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold Notice posted yesterday and in wrong place. I've moved the notice so the request can get more visibility. fr33kman 15:11, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
How is the new page more appropriate ? The intro only talks about bot requests and if you look at the interwikis you clearly see this is a page for bot permissions. I'm not even talking about the more "visibility" aspect, and I wonder if the previous ones to request something on this Community Portal even visited the Tsétsêhéstâhese Wikipedia since the local url to to the Community Portal was different until yesterday. I don't understand why you make such a big affair with that, I could have just copy-pasted the templates without respecting the original authors and nobody here would have ever find out... What you should really ask is "What harm giving this user import rights on this Wiki can cause, and is there a real risk ?" and "Assuming good faith, is there a benefit in giving this user those rights, and will he really use those to contribute ?" I understand there are rules in place to protect the projects, but it looks to me this is only for the bureaucracy principle now. Amqui (talk) 19:25, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
The new location is where more people look for notices etc. As to what harm import can cause, if you don't know that then I'd say you are not ready to have it. AGF does not come into play when requesting a right such as import. The candidate must show they need it and know how to use it. I think you should just use copy & paste frankly. fr33kman 21:31, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
As I said in the first message, I have used this tool before on another Wiki, and never had any bad comments from it. Secondly, I didn't say it couldn't cause any harm, but that's the questions one needs to ask himself when looking at the requests on this page. Copy-pasting is a way more tedious process for templates using a lot of sub-templates (you can look at the Import log for the aforementioned template, and it's still missing some sub-templates and the ones they use), or maybe you could come help us by copy-pasting what we need then. Finally, I'm pretty sure the concept of founding principles is that they are applied at all times, and I really don't like to be treated as if I will vandalize something after having showed with time that I'm here to contribute. Amqui (talk) 22:58, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
No one has treated you like you will vandalize something. Sorry but you are wrong about "founding principles" they do not apply everywhere for everything. Some wikis have no concept of AGF, others allow personal opinions and still others permit original research, for instance. en-Wikipedia's policies don't apply everywhere. fr33kman 16:14, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
Anyway, that's another debate, you are diverting from the initial subject of this request. You could change the question I mentioned higher to "Is there a benefit in giving this user those rights, and will he really use them to contribute ?" to be more general. While we are diverting from the subject, where can we ask for minor global sysop actions to be performed on a Wiki without any sysop or bureaucrat ? I don't see a page for that in the Crosswiki requests list and I would have needed it more than once in the past including now. Amqui (talk) 18:33, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
There is Stewards' noticeboard. Use it. Ruslik (talk) 19:17, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

I would like get rights to transwiki pages from other wikis as a part of my work on centralizing the manual pages for software to one central wiki, at this moment, per discussions on wikitech it's not clear if meta or mww is better for this, so result is that most of mediawiki related sw is on mediawiki and other software is being moved on meta, I on am already a sysop on mediawiki.org so I can import there, but I would like to be able to transwiki to this site as well.

I don't see that we need a consensus. To note that there is only a limited set of wikis turned on from which import can occur, so we may need to have those added to via bugzilla. I believe that I have seen that you have a level of competence there :) billinghurst sDrewth 15:48, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
