Administrator access[edit]

Soul Train bxr@wikipedia[edit]

I request to prolong my access for 3 more months. For the last 3 months in bxr.wikipedia has changed interface from English to Russian, so this was good change. But I still waiting for changing of namespaces to Buryat language. Untill this, I can't say that my mission is finished. Also, I desided to permanently ban user Gubin Michail because of his constantly violations. Please, let me know if I do it wrong. Soul Train (talk) 08:36, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi, please make a local announcement about this request nevertheless, even if there is no community. --MF-W 00:13, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
Here's the link--Soul Train (talk) 08:10, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
Oppose Oppose. This is not active user in latest week's. In 30 days, he make 41 edits. He remove 700 articles and blocked the most active and promising participant in perpetuity once the ban to edit him discussion page, and send the letter.--Region190 (talk) 19:14, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
These alleged 700 articles seem to be empty pages. --Vituzzu (talk) 16:39, 30 June 2013 (UTC)
In lezgin wikipedia too many there pages, but Soul Train don't remove it.--Region190 (talk) 17:13, 30 June 2013 (UTC)
What? You have no right to talk about this one of the best newly opened Wikimedia project. This is the real Diamond with native users who want to develop their Wikipedia. If I see garbage somewhere, I delete it, no matter if it Russian, Buryat, Chechen, Lezgi, Avar or another language section.--Soul Train (talk) 11:45, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
  • I think that everybody in the Meta knows my good intentions and experience in working to support different sections of Wikipedia in languages of Russian Federation. Also, everybody knows that I never hold for the technical permissions. I'm proud that I deleted this garbage and also I can say that I warned about this possible deletion during the voting. I have done everything to prevent this deletion, but Mr. Gubin done nothing to expand his blanked pages with 1-2 words (I can't call it "articles"). Unfortunately, nobody wants to develop this section and I do not exclude that once Buryat Wikipedia can be transferring back to the Incubator. I want to help to all Wikipedias in languages of Russian Federation, but only if native speakers themselves want to develop their projects. About Region190, I don't even want to discuss this schoolboy (familiar of permanently banned in Russian and Buryat Wikipedia user Gubin) who simply chasing for permissions in almost dead projects.--Soul Train (talk) 11:29, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
Strongly Oppose Oppose. This user became an admin. After that he changet interface to RUSSIAN, and lots of buryats live in China or Mongolia and don't speak russian. Then he deleted more than 300 pages, wich wore stubs. Then he wasn't active AT ALL! I was an admin of buryat Wikipedia before him. I added to a page about russian musition Vicktor Coj link to my translation to buryat his song on YouTube and this vandal blocked me indefinately! NO WAY!--Gubin (talk) 15:31, 4 July 2013 (UTC)
Can somebody globally ban user Губин Михаил, because he indefinitely banned in two Wikimedia Projects at the moment - in Russian and in Buryat Wikipedia?--Soul Train (talk) 08:37, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
  • I need extra permissions immidiately! At the moment all namespaces finally were translated and moved fromm Translatewiki. This paragraph of my program of developing of Buryat Wikipedia was successfully completed. Now I should fix the bags in some system messages and in Sidebar 'cause now it doesn't work correctly.--Soul Train (talk) 08:32, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Or can somebody fix the Sidebar - now Special:RescentChanges and Special:NewPages called in Russian «Служебная:», it needed to fix - «Тусхай:».--Soul Train (talk) 08:42, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Please, close this request. I don't want to take part in the farce, when many users, even if they really want to help another small projects, came in some almost dead project and elect the Administrator. If you don't want to prolong my permissions, well, let it be. Every regular user in Russian Wikipedias knows about vandals like Gubin, Region190 and their band. They don't care about quality of Wikipedia, simply schoolboys who want to socialise in wiki-projects. And I don't want to spend my time in wars with those boys. This is the first thing. Second, Buryat Wikipedia is really dead project that nobody wants to develop. Making pages like "Rwanda - African country" was not developing of project.--Soul Train (talk) 12:30, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
    • Было бы неплохо, если бы вы освободили пространство бурятской Википелии от своего присутствия.--Region190 (talk) 08:58, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
      Было бы неплохо, если бы всякая школота не указывала мне, что мне делать.--Soul Train (talk) 20:49, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

 Not done at this time. Please return this conversation to the bxrwiki and have the nomination process and conversation there. This page is not the right page to undertaken the debate. Please let the conversation run at least a week. — billinghurst sDrewth 16:32, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
I repeat, I don't want to be sysop in this absolutely dead project. At the same time, I'll check that vandal users such Region190 or Gubin Michail never take the power there.--Soul Train (talk) 06:32, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

Also, this user was (mysteriously) stripped of his admin rights, can you tell me the real reason behind it (according to the latest log)? Regards.--Bill william compton (talk) 10:49, 1 August 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification. The reason for the removal in the log is "expired", please see the archive: It seems like there was some confusion whether he was granted permanent or temporary adminship.

Sersan Mayor Kururu@suwikipedia[edit]

Article in need of deletion piling up, anonymous users attacking key templates, featured article and picture templates sometimes don't get renewed, several interface haven't been translated, while no sysop actively solving them. I think finally I am justifiable to be one. :) Sersan Mayor Kururu (talk) 07:31, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

You listed this under the CheckUser requests, but the discussion does not seem to be for CheckUser rights. In addition it does not meet the Foundation requirements for CheckUser access. I presume you are requesting administrator access. If so, there is an active bureaucrat on suwiki who will deal with this QuiteUnusual (talk) 14:25, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
OK, so Sersan Mayor must request his rights to the local 'crat. I'll help him. SpartacksCompatriot (talk) 16:14, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Ayie7791 ace@wikipedia[edit]

I see at this time is really critical the existence of a local admin on the ace.wikipedia, so back I volunteered to be an admin. For the cooperation and his consent I say thank you. Ayie7791 (talk) 19:45, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Seeing no opposition, I recommend temporary administrator first. Having limited active users may make granting permanent flag too early.--Jusjih (talk) 03:11, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
Oppose Oppose to promote any users to admin on acewiki right now. See the previous admin requests here (Ayie7791), here (Si Gam) and here (GabTHAT). Trijnsteltalk 15:31, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
For what reason? And until when? -- Si Gam (talk) 11:43, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
If you accuse for the same reason, please do check user soon! -- Si Gam (talk) 10:40, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
What does it mean we deserve blacklisted users? For what reason we do not have a right to participate more in the places where we contribute in it? -- Ayie7791 (talk) 16:31, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
Please check IP from all our contributions too. -- Si Gam (talk) 17:08, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment Comment I believe that the comment is that there has been general problems with acewiki and administration, and that it is probably prudent to not appoint any admins at this time due to the general issues and disagreements. — billinghurst sDrewth 16:34, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
OK. I suggest this Wikipedia should be closed.. :) -- Si Gam (talk) 07:39, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

There are many projects that do not have admins which work just fine. If the members of acewiki are truly interested in building the project, I am certain there is plenty that can be done without a sysop flag. -- Avi (talk) 00:49, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Hehe, could you tell me who can maintain main page, media wiki etc if there is no native admin? -- Si Gam (talk) 20:31, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Stewards or possibly global sysops. Please see Steward requests/Miscellaneous. -- Avi (talk) 03:43, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Do they know Acehnese so they can know which part should be edited? -- Si Gam (talk) 07:39, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
 Not done due to, once more, high sockpuppet abuse suspicion. Many small wikis have global sysops, and this one is no exception. Elfix 09:12, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
Sockpuppet again? How do you prove it? Please do not accuse us. -- Si Gam (talk) 13:01, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
It can be proven by just looking at this request. Razorflame 22:43, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Please remove these users admin/bureaucrat status:

--DzWiki (talk) 13:30, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Question Question: Demicx is also a checkuser, does this mean he should lose these rights too? (he hasn't used them for 2 years iirc) If so, Kal-El will lose them too (every project should have at least 2 CUs or none at all) and the project will have no local checkusers anymore so maybe you should think about electing new (and active!) CUs. Trijnsteltalk 16:49, 24 August 2013 (UTC)
Correct, he should also lose his CU-rights. Can we put Demicx "on hold", I would like to hear what the bs.wp community have to say about this. If problems doesn't exist with the other users, please remove their rights. --DzWiki (talk) 10:53, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
Sure. Four Yes check.svg Done and Demicx put Time2wait.svg On hold.
Let me tell you that both Demicx and Kal-El (the other CU) haven't used their tools for since 2011. We have also a global CU policy which says that everyone who has not used their tools for 1 year will lose them. In case no new CU will be elected, the stewards will be able to CU per request. Our request page is here. Trijnsteltalk 18:05, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
You can remove Demicx rights too. If the community on bs.wp wants new CU we can "elect" them later, you don't need to wait on us. Thanks for your help --DzWiki (talk) 17:22, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
OK, Yes check.svg Done. Bswiki has no CUs anymore, so request a CU from now on on Steward requests/Checkuser please. Trijnsteltalk 17:39, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Greetings! Please grant me an access to the administrative rights at the Chechen Wikipedia for 6 months. I need it for deleting, restoring and (un-)protecting pages, (un-)blocking users (especially unblocking users, who have been blocked by previous admins for no valid reason), editing MediaWiki namespace etc. Due to decision stated here, I have requested the status locally, and received sufficient support (7 "pro" to 0 "oppose"), mostly from active contributors. I have already received an access previously.--Дагиров Умар (talk) 18:37, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

I saw that, but we need to wait more than one day to see if everybody agrees with your adminship. Usually, it's 7 full days.
