Tokvo@frp.wikipedia

There are no active users or speakers on the wiki, there is a bureaucrat, but he only comes there from time to time, mainly to make corrections. There is need for an active administrator. Thank you in advance. Tokvo (talk) 16:56, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Peterfitzgerald@es.wikivoyage

I was an admin and bureaucrat on es.wikitravel, and am happy to serve in the same roles here. It's my understanding that legacy rights apply, and we have applied them to all other language versions prior to the launch of es and pt. --Peter Talk 21:53, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Hmm, es.wikivoyage have developed recently their own RfA procedures and have promoted some temporary admins recently (with no bureaucrats). Setting for review. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 22:52, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
There's an ongoing local discussion about this. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 22:58, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Stefán Ingi@is.wikisource

Unanimous support after seven days of discussion for reinstating Stefán Ingi at least as an admin. It probably made sense to deflag him as a bureaucrat due to inactivity but I think this user was prematurely desysopped. He was given seven days to respond in the middle of the holiday season when many people tend to be preoccupied with other things. Bjarki S (talk) 23:03, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Following a discussion here on the need for more sysops on as.wikipedia, a poll was held to nominate as:User:Gitartha.bordoloi for sysop. The poll was held over 7 days which ended on Jan 17, 2013, with the tally 15 (YES) and 0 (NO). The as.wikipedia community requests that Gitartha.bordoloi may kindly be made a sysop. Thanks.

555@brwikimedia

I was an admin at br.wikimedia until October 2011, resigning without any involvement on controversial actions. Since in the near future a new tool will be enabled at that wiki per approved proposal made by me, I think that is desiderable to get admin access to help on the new feature. The given discussion link is an announcement for that intention.

Please let me known if it is acceptable or if is needed to run a vote on the mentioned wiki. Best 02:42, 17 January 2013 (UTC)Lugusto

The wiki that you nominate is a chapter wiki, not one where stewards would make the decision. Please have one of the principal officers from brWM contact us to approve that right. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:28, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
Hey, guys, you can give that flag, but if you want I can send one email via OTRS. Thank you for your concern. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 21:42, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Aldar Badmaev@bxr.wikipedia

This would have been a temporary admin appointment, but [5] leaves me with great concerns. Personal attacks and vandalism are not acceptable from our administrators. He also appears to be blocked in the only other wiki he's substantially edited [6] for edit warring. Snowolf How can I help? 07:01, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
But... Aldar is the only active native spiker in our wiki, and we need his adminship. And block in other wiki is not the reason for the refusal. For example, I am also permanently blocked in the Russian wiki. So what? I became the administrator of the Buryat wiki, raised activity, brought to the 1000 articles, invited users. Now we have 50 active users and 1115 articles. Thanks for permanently blocked in the Russian wiki man (me). So think.--Gubin (talk) 19:03, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
I would like some input from my colleagues, which is why I haven't marked this request as not done, but the personal attack and vandalism on another user's page that I've linked to which took place during this very RfA is most troubling to me. This is not appropriate for an administrator. Snowolf How can I help? 17:10, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
I am not sure if the users that participated in the rfa were aware of this. How about notify them about it and see if the community has any opinion? --Bencmq (talk) 14:04, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
By the way, I just took a look to the two last accounts who voted, and they are obviously not members of this community, judging on their creation date and their number of edits. Some voting accounts were obviously created to vote, and when you know that Губин Михаил, who is making this request, was involved in sockpuppets abuse and canvassing and tried to get adminship on several projects this way, you can't endorse such a request... -- Quentinv57 (talk) 12:28, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Regardless of the lack of identification as this time, which would be needed and the procedures for that are listed at Steward handbook/email templates#Notification that identification is required, I am declining this request and marking it as X mark.svg Not done. As I have warned on the local page, joint nomination and voting is not proper procedure and it raises a number of questions. Specifically, I do not think it is a appropriate, valid, fair or transparent process. Each candidate should be separately elected. I have already consulted my colleagues and they likewise agree. Snowolf How can I help? 23:22, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
That makes no sense whatsoever. How in the world is it in any way unfair, invalid, or opaque? Unanimous support isn't clear enough? That's absurd. LtPowers (talk) 02:11, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
Hi Lt. It's because the stewards can't be 100% sure that when people were voting support they were voting to elect both candidates. Although it's probably not the case here, someone could have voted to support Peter, who wrote the initial nomination statement for example, but not have really considered whether Inas would be suitable as a CheckUser. Separate voting for each candidate provides the stewards with the assurance that the community does indeed want both candidates elected, and ultimately I can see why this has been done especially because of the nature of the data that Peter and Inas could be handling, extra precautions are quite justified.

I don't know it is enough for removing the flags. Korean Wikisource isn't inactive project now. At least 2 administrators are active, at least 4 active users(including 2 admins) exist. Although I edited Sitenotice, just 7 days isn't enough time for removing his flag, IMHO. Would you please give our project more time for considering? --Sotiale (talk) 05:37, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

    Sure, but there was no reasonable discussion. The user was not notified on-wiki. I am editing that wiki every day and I am familiar with the situation.--Ymblanter (talk) 06:27, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
    Why not comment in that local discussion made by Jusjih then? --Bencmq (talk) 11:32, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
    I somehow missed it when it started. I will comment now. However, I do not think it is a good idea when someone without any contribution in the project shows up and open a deadminship discussion.--Ymblanter (talk) 11:47, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
    What's the reason of your oppose, by the way ? I don't understand much because having inactive users with bureaucrat status could be a security issue if the account was hijacked. Anyway, there will be no problems for this user to have his flags back when he comes back if he still have the approval of the community. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 18:11, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
    PCode is a kind of Jimbo Wales of Chavash Wikipedia, a person who founded the project and recruited the editors himself, making it the most successfull of all projects in minor languages spoken in the former USSR. The project is active, there are at least two active admins. If they do not consider his inactivity as a problem and do not respond on the deadmin page, why should Jusjih, without any contribution to the project, single-handedly deadmin PCode? I believe insufficient efforts have been made. Try to contact the admins, ask them whether they know what is going on, they may even contact him off-wiki, ask their opinion, then may be if everybody agrees, deadmin him. But not just like this - first open the discussion, vote for deadminship, then come here and request desysop.--Ymblanter (talk) 18:42, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
    This request was posted here before your local response. Being a bureaucrat means responsibility, not honor.--Jusjih (talk) 07:20, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
    Sure, it is just your contribution to that project is five edits, all of which are related with this deadminship. Compare it to mine contribution, if you wish. You are just not a member of the community.--Ymblanter (talk) 13:59, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
    Ok, now PCode showed up and voted for his deburaucrateship. I asked him a question to confirm it (if I remember correctly, he does not speak English, and this may be an error), but obviously if he does not want to be a bureaucrat I am not going to object.--Ymblanter (talk) 14:06, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
    Could you ask PCode to post that here, or are you certain that he is happy with the removal of the crat bit? -- Avi (talk) 22:52, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
    Yes check.svg Done I will proceed to the removal of permissions per this. If PCode wants to return and to get his tools back, just ask the community opinion and there will be no problem at all for us to give them back.

TariButtar@pa.wiktionary

The wiki needs it's first active administrator as there is much to fix e.g. many articles created with just pure vandalism, many having entirely non-Punjabi text, empty pages and much more. I'm much experienced on en.wiki and have admin's right on pa.wiki and now, also, want to improve the orphan pa.wiktionary. TariButtar (talk) 16:17, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

It's really strange to find my request unanswered on such up-to-date page. Where are you stewards? --TariButtar (talk) 14:01, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
I think some of the hesitation may come from the fact that you've just been promoted to admin on pa.wiki a month ago per your request, and it might seem that you're not heavily engaged in pa.wiktionary at the moment. Pundit (talk) 14:12, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
And what is the urgency? The fact is that stewards require that a notification be made to the community, which we require to be in place for a minimum of a week, and to this point you have not done it. It would seem that there is an implicit refusal, by your not having done so, when you know that it is a requirement. — billinghurst sDrewth 14:40, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
I'm not requesting rights on the basis of my contributions to pa.wiktionary; I've just started there but as being an experienced user of en.wiki I know the dos and don'ts well so not to worry about anything unusual, vandal etc. from me. I just expressed my interest in improving it in a better way. And yes, notified the community about my interest of being an admin at community portal but as the wiki is yet orphan, the response may rare. Tari Buttar (talk) 12:21, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
Why there is no response to my request? Why it is unnoticed on such a highly watched page? I want this to be come to an end. Please at least tell me, this request is denied, on hold or what? I want a response. If you're waiting for the local community response, I wanna tell you that the response may rare as there is no community, for now. --Tari Buttar (talk) 02:56, 7 September 2012 (UTC)
Apologies if it wasn't clear. The request is currently "in progress". You need to provide a link to the community discussion on your request. Pundit (talk) 11:38, 7 September 2012 (UTC)
I've provided a link to the community discussion in the "discussion" parameter, but the response may rare as there is no community yet. The wiki needs it's first admin (better active of course). --tari Buttar (talk) 11:55, 7 September 2012 (UTC)

What alphabet, dear? If you talking about the page title I've linked to, then I wanna tell you that, it is the local community portal. And, what you mean by advertised? --tari Buttar (talk) 08:56, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

The wiki doesn't have a village pump and for now, I don't think it should have one. I've told earlier that there is no community then which I should satisfied? I just fulfilled the formality by positing there. And, just want this request to come to an end as I'm seeing no one other is interseted in this request and than of stewads I've increased the size more. --tari Buttar (talk) 04:18, 9 September 2012 (UTC)
Dear TariButtar, your admin access is granted temporarily for 3 months. We naturally understand that budding wikis may not have sufficient community to foster a proper discussion. Caution and taking the procedure slowly is also a measure to spot potential discrepancies and concerns, which you as an admin yourself should certainly understand.

Hemant wikikosh@pi.wikipedia.org

I have made several grammatical corrections on Pali wiki main page and other pages, but I see that admin rights are needed for changing many important pages. I would appreciate if you grant me the same. I have good knowledge of Pali and its literature. It would not be out of place to mention that currently sidebar as well as logo of Pali wiki are having serious grammatical mistakes. (To cite the least, logo declares the name of project as विकिपीङिया (=wikipenia) and the tagline declares it as सद्दकोसो i.e. a dictionary. Recent changes is written as नूतन विपरिणामेति (Nūtana vipariṇāmeti), which means 'new modifies' not 'modifications'). Without correction to them it is not possible for a Pali knowing newcomer to stay there for a while, let aside building up of community.
Please let me know if there is any further requirement. For info, I am working as a sysop on Sanskrit wikipedia. -Hemant wikikosh (talk) 07:36, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Avgustos@jbo.wiktionary

Hello. There has been one vote in favor of user AugPi (me) and none against. The vote was weak because "AugPi" is un-lojbanic (either that or because I missed the word "la'e" in the headline... which is needed to make the sentence refer to user AugPi instead of the name "AugPi"...). I created a new account, Avgustos, which is more lojbanic. There is no bureaucrat (or steward) on jbo.wiktionary to make anyone an admin (including me), so I have to recourse to making a request here. (There had been a recent proposal to close down jbo.wiktionary, one of the reasons in favor of which was the absence of any admin on jbo.wiktionary, so granting adminship to Avgustos might help the cause of jbo.wiktionary's survival...) —AugPi (t) 15:14, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi, correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that the linked vote contains only input from 2 of your accounts, and it would seem as if you were thus exclusively self-elected? Pundit (talk) 20:20, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
Wrong. The vote in my favor was from anonymous user 2002:52D3:A7D8:0:213:D4FF:FE60:17EB. My smaller-font message was in order to notify that the voting edit was from anonymous user 2002:52D3:A7D8:0:213:D4FF:FE60:17EB. My pair of messages under that were responses to that anonymous user. —AugPi (t) 16:44, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
By the way, that same Lojban-writing anonymous user made the following edit (to meta-wiki): diff=3855381. —AugPi (t) 17:00, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. Again, pardon my ignorance, but do anonymous users have voting rights on this project? Many apologies for my confusion. Pundit (talk) 20:51, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
There is as yet no voting policy on jbo.wiktionary. —AugPi (t) 14:35, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
The anonymous voter obviously knows Lojban, though, and cared enough to register a vote. No one else has bothered to even register an "Abstain" vote (no'e sarji in Lojban). —AugPi (t) 14:46, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
And, by the way, bende ckupau is not a page for carrying out formal votes; it is rather much more like the "Beer Parlour" in en.wiktionary (my "home wiki"). In 2010, a user named I-20 proposed on the bende ckupau, in English, to become the wiki's admin. No one bothered to register any comment. Two years later the wiki still has no admin. So the fact that that anonymous user registered a comment, and wrote that comment in Lojban — not English — is a lot of progress for the jbo.wiktionary. —AugPi (t) 14:58, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Unanimous support in the nomination for adminship. I am an admin myself in the project and giving the admin rights is ok, but we have not been able to reach our sole bureaucrat in the weeks after the voting ended. Thus, there has been major lag in getting the rights. Therefore, Meta-Wiki is the place to ask for the admin rights, as the usual route to ask from the local bureaucrat has failed.

Done Granted for 6 months to expire on 2013-07-11. Since we are processing this through Meta, we have to take into consideration that there are too few comments to grant permanent adminship at this time. This is in-line with all promotions which are considered by stewards. Therefore I have set this to expire in six months; if in that time the local bureaucrat decides to make it permanent, that is their call. Please inform us if that happens so we do not inadvertently desysop him later. If there is still no comment from the local bureaucrat after six months, please ask for an extension here if needed.

Avgustos@jbo.wiktionary

Hello. There has been one vote in favor of user AugPi (me) and none against. The vote was weak because "AugPi" is un-lojbanic (either that or because I missed the word "la'e" in the headline... which is needed to make the sentence refer to user AugPi instead of the name "AugPi"...). I created a new account, Avgustos, which is more lojbanic. There is no bureaucrat (or steward) on jbo.wiktionary to make anyone an admin (including me), so I have to recourse to making a request here. (There had been a recent proposal to close down jbo.wiktionary, one of the reasons in favor of which was the absence of any admin on jbo.wiktionary, so granting adminship to Avgustos might help the cause of jbo.wiktionary's survival...) —AugPi (t) 15:14, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi, correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that the linked vote contains only input from 2 of your accounts, and it would seem as if you were thus exclusively self-elected? Pundit (talk) 20:20, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
Wrong. The vote in my favor was from anonymous user 2002:52D3:A7D8:0:213:D4FF:FE60:17EB. My smaller-font message was in order to notify that the voting edit was from anonymous user 2002:52D3:A7D8:0:213:D4FF:FE60:17EB. My pair of messages under that were responses to that anonymous user. —AugPi (t) 16:44, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
By the way, that same Lojban-writing anonymous user made the following edit (to meta-wiki): diff=3855381. —AugPi (t) 17:00, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. Again, pardon my ignorance, but do anonymous users have voting rights on this project? Many apologies for my confusion. Pundit (talk) 20:51, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
There is as yet no voting policy on jbo.wiktionary. —AugPi (t) 14:35, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
The anonymous voter obviously knows Lojban, though, and cared enough to register a vote. No one else has bothered to even register an "Abstain" vote (no'e sarji in Lojban). —AugPi (t) 14:46, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
And, by the way, bende ckupau is not a page for carrying out formal votes; it is rather much more like the "Beer Parlour" in en.wiktionary (my "home wiki"). In 2010, a user named I-20 proposed on the bende ckupau, in English, to become the wiki's admin. No one bothered to register any comment. Two years later the wiki still has no admin. So the fact that that anonymous user registered a comment, and wrote that comment in Lojban — not English — is a lot of progress for the jbo.wiktionary. —AugPi (t) 14:58, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

To clarify, that's translation admin. --Rschen7754 03:45, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
It has 7 supports and is a self-nom. I see the d:Wikidata:Requests_for_permissions page requires 8 supports for normal adminship, but I'm not sure if translation adminship is handled with a lower threshold. MBisanz talk 03:47, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
The guidelines say nothing about that, but I think someone has passed with fewer than 8 supports before. --Rschen7754 03:51, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
Well, it now has more than 8 supports, so it passes, but it would be great to shove a line in RFP about it. MBisanz talk 04:14, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

There appears to be no such "interface administrator" right on this wiki.--Jasper Deng (talk) 05:26, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
Shiju, It might be easier to ask Stewards to do what you need to get done or ask for temp adminship if community agrees. --Jyothis (talk) 06:00, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

Not sure whether this is the correct to place this message. A similar request for Telugu wikisource was placed here last year

If stewards can make the proof read extension work like it is working in the telugu Wikisource site then no need of this right for me. I do not remember the exact steps required for this. But from my experince with Telugu Wikisource it is mostly edits in Mediawiki namespace. Also see a similar request for Telugu wikisource earlier. --Shijualex (talk) 06:15, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
