Zhuyifei1999 is a temporary admin on zh.voy (see here), after our local vote, can any Steward extended or give him a permanent sysop rights?--TianyinLee (talk) 04:43, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Geoleplubo@pcd.wikipedia

I had rights for adminship from 25 december 2012 (3 + 6 + 6 + 6 months) so I was Granted for 6 months to expire on 2014-10-03 ( see = https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Steward_requests/Permissions/Approved_temporary#Geoleplubo.40pcdwiki ). Because of a mistake my administrator rights are closed now. it is wrongly mentioned as 4th August here ? Please can you put again my temporary adminship. At the same time I put a vote on pcd.wikipedia to request for a permanent adminship. Thanks, Geoleplubo (talk) 00:46, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

With the size of the community, I would doubt that we would grant permanent adminship, though would see that we would extend the period of the granting of the right.  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:43, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
According to the last renewal, the temporary adminship should have lasted until 3 October. I reinstated admin rights. --MF-W 17:06, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

AAR was already done for this wiki, so AAR would not be a factor here. Of course, local discussions to remove should be respected as appropriate. --Rschen7754 02:18, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
@Openbk: which means that AAR in normal process won't revisit this wiki in a while. If your community has concerns about your missing bureaucrat, and its effects, that you should escalate that matter within plWN.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:22, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

According to local policy, sysops lose their access automatically if they stay inactive for more than 6 months. We have discussed in the village pump and decided the policy remains on force.

EvilFreD@nlwiki

I feel I can no longer discretefully perform tasks that are associated with administration in a community that propogates it's own interests above the privacy rights of individuals. Even though I respect anybody's opinion on that matter, I can not approve of this act of civil disobedience and therefor no longer wish to be associated to an organisation, in an administrative sense, that believes it's own values are more important than that of the individual.

Rillke@commons.wikimedia

Please remove the sysop bit and assign all rights I had before becoming administrator. It puzzles out that Wikimedia Foundation has intentionally installed a super-mistrust-the-community protection level and I am no longer inclined to carry out administrative activities during my spare time, including maintenance and replacing deprecated functionality. Either the scripts will break over time or they are removed. In the past, the Wikimedia Foundation software department has imposed new edit restrictions on adminstrators, so that we are no longer able to edit all pages (glamwiki namespace), we are no longer able to script Special:Preferences (the security claim is invalid). And at this Wikimania, I experienced that WMF has turned into a commercial enterprise with employees without own opinion (there are exceptions and I am glad I met them) or motivation to seriously test the tools they advertise their own; some even have never contributed an edit to any Wikimedia project. This felt unnatural. -- I believe contributors should help interested parties getting started with new projects, teach them how to use Wikimedia Projects, and not paid professionals.

I came to Commons and became administrator because it gave me great freedom, trust and confidence. I now decide not to tolerate the drop in freedom, trust and confidence; doing the tedious work only and leaving all other decisions to paid WMF agents.

Finally I disagree with Foundation's criticism of the right to be forgotten. This position doesn't fit into my European Culture. Rillke (talk) 22:11, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I enjoyed getting the chance to meet you this past week and believe you should reconsider, or at least wait until this whole situation blows over. If it bugs you that much, just stop editing. Legoktm (talk) 22:28, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
PS, disabling scripting on Special:Preferences is a legit security claim since a user's email is displayed on the page, and was done back in 2007 (rev:22008) by a volunteer, nonetheless.
Hey Legoktm, Enjoyed meeting you as well and want to thank you for the globaluserjs/-css :)
  • Editing and coding: Of course I'll continue to, though I won't do the boring work at Commons as long as this issue is in place. And when the super-duper-protection is eventually removed, it's a good time for checking whether I still have the community's trust through an election, which is also a good place to get feedback. QA process.
  • Security: If one wants a user's e-mail address, one does:
    $.get( '/wiki/Special:Preferences' )
    	.done( function( p ) {
    		console.log( $( p )
    			.find( '.mw-email-authenticated' )
    			.text() );
    	} );
    
    or meta=userinfo&uiprop=email. And if e-mail is considered private, I don't know why MW went for Bugzilla in the first place. I was almost sure site script was disabled later (late 2011/2012) on special:preferences but not so sure about it. Commit messages in this time are too trashy to search them. -- Rillke (talk) 00:18, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
Time2wait.svg On hold for at least 24 hours (per standard practice), possibly more (at the actioning steward's discretion). FYI, we cannot assign any rights on Commons (except CU/OS, but that's not the case here) - you will either need to ask an admin, or add the rights to yourself before the flag is removed. --Rschen7754 01:14, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
I can commit to making sure Rillke gets all the local permissions on Commons that he needs. odder (talk) 08:25, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
I'd say on hold until a statement by WMF on the current situation was published and we all had same time to think about it. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 10:15, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

FeodorBezuhov@rowiki

On 5 April 2014, user FeodorBezuhov announced his retirement from wikipedia clearing his userpage and writing "M-am retras" (en: I retired.) In the same day he also deleted a lot of his user sub-pages, for each specifying in edit summary: "M-am retras" (en: I retired.) Also, you can analyze history og his contributions. Excludin actions on own userpages, his latest edit was on --article "George Scutaru" on 7 Nov 2013. Previous edit was on 28 August 2013. Those was only 2 edits in 2013!!

In 2012 he has 19 actions: 1 in November, 8 in October, 1 in June, 5 in May, 2 in February and 2 in March. Then, his latest stable edits comes from 2011.

His last edit in Wikipedia namespace was on 25 May 2012. Previous - on 17 April 2011.

So, we can consider he is no longer active since 2011 or 2012. In 2-3 years rowiki policy underwent substantial changes and is supposed he is not aware of this. And finally, as i presented at the begginning - in 2014 he himself said he withdrew.

According to those arguments i ask you to remove FeodorBezuhov's admin status on rowiki. 82.77.75.174 10:57, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

@AdiJapan, Andrei Stroe, and Rsocol: Would one of you please confirm the resignation and the stewards to remove the right.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:47, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Technically, FeodorBezuhov didn't ask formally for the termination of his adminship. Second, his last edit was less than 1 year ago, so his admin rights shouldn't be revoked for inactivity. Thirdly, he wasn't dismissed by the community for any other reason. And those three things are the only reasons for removing admin rights on ro.wp. As such, I recommend keeping the status quo until one of those things happen. — AdiJapan 03:21, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
I've actually met him by chance a few months back, and he said he has very little time for Wikipedia right now and he only edits once in a while. That said, ro.wp has a local procedure for removing sysop rights. It may be so that he is not up-to-date with the policies, but this should be decided by the local community. In fact, a local discussion was initiated, but failed to gather enough pro votes.Andrei Stroe (talk) 05:35, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

@Savh:, Has not asked me anything, but he wanted to tell him if there any abuse cases, and for the moment I do not have any abuse cases.

I'm always walking around in the Encyclopedia if I find a good thing i move to our local language, this is why i put titleblacklist bad names Such as who calls himself the names of the tribes.

I followed the basic rules such be bold, I have so many contributions in different, I translated so.wiki, and i have a lot of improvements such template so.Main Page, so far I do not understand why my request was delayed so long.

thanks --Abshirdheere (talk) 00:39, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Done Granted for 3 months to expire on 2014-08-12. Sorry this request took so long to process. Looking at the feedback given by Vogone on the RfA, I would agree that you should not add such blanket phrases to the titleblacklist, and would recommend that you stay away from that area without consulting other users experienced in the area (on meta is a great place to do so!). That being said, good luck, and start another vote or announcement in 3 months to extend your adminship. Ajraddatz (talk) 17:03, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much mr Ajraddatz, I will do everything you had advised me Such as leave away from titleblacklist, I believe Assuming good faith is a my fundamental principle.

CFynn@dz.wikipedia

I'm trying to get people interested in Dzongkha Wikipedia but there is a need to clean up junk, etc. and help new users. There currently seems to be no Admin on this wiki - many of the articles are just stubs or have been edited my users with little knowledge of Dzongkha. I have been contributing to Wikipedia since 2005-02-24, and on Commons (as Cfynn) since June 2007. CFynn (talk) 16:44, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Please note that I haven't considered the votes of any people; one account was created solely to vote on that request, another only had one edit elsewhere on Wikimedia that wasn't voting on that request, and the other two had no local contributions other than voting for you. Please, don't ask that people vote outside of the local community - if there is no local community, then a simple announcement works. Thanks, Ajraddatz (talk) 17:06, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. Are there any steps I can take so that Janezdrilc gets permanent administrator rights? --Domen (talk) 22:59, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
There would need to be a local vote with a local community supporting his candidacy - I tend to look for at least 8 supporting votes from people who are actually active on the project, and that standard is much lower than some. Otherwise, the next period of time will be six months, then periods of one year for subsequent requests. Ajraddatz (talk) 23:35, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
We've never had eight active people on this project. As you can see on q:sl:Wikinavedek:Končane prošnje za administratorstvo I was accepted as an administrator with two votes. Sorry for being so persistent/annoying but I would like to save Janezdrilc trouble of requesting administration access over and over again. I know this is not a painful thing but it's a rare occasion that someone is prepared to contribute to and monitor this project. Vandals will still be active months and years from now. --Domen (talk) 18:42, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
No problem. I'd like him to need to re-seek community input at least once more, but after the next vote in 3 months when his temporary access expires I'd be willing to look at permanent access (or significantly longer than what he currently has). Best practices for stewards have changed somewhat since you were made an admin there - we generally tend to favour temporary over permanent adminship unless there is a large local community.
