Administrator access

danielquayle@gv.wikipedia

It has come to my attention that the quality of the Manx used on the Manx language Wikipedia is so bad that some of it is incomprehensible. As a native speaker, I feel it is a great shame that the site has come to this, with many of the articles arguably not even in Manx, just Irish with Manx spelling. Many of my students, and learners who I have met, have become confused when trying to read articles on the site, which upsets me as I know it would be an invaluable resource for learners. This is why I am asking for adminship of the Manx Wikipedia - some of the current writers are damaging the quality of the site (albeit in an act of attempted kindness, for which I am grateful) and rendering the website useless. I have, on numerous occasions, had to delete huge chunks of work as they make no sense whatsoever, and rewrite many articles due to their blatant mistakes. I regret having to bring this to your attention, and again repeat my thanks to those who have tried to create a resource.Danielquayle (talk) 21:36, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

@Danielquayle: Have you placed a request/notification to the community? If so, please link to it in the discussion field above. Stewards will assess the request from seven days after the date of the discussion at the wiki. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:21, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Uchup19@su.wiktionary

Thanks --Uchup19 (talk) 03:10, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

@Uchup19: Please submit your application to the community in question, and then place a link here to that discussion at suWikt. From a week after the discussion is started, a steward will make an evaluation of the discussion, and determine whether we can grant an admin right, and any duration.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:50, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: I hope it will be effective to do. Because there's no activity last 6 month, I have a big community of sundanese in reality, I wanna make the suWikt be reformation. But if this request too hard to realized, No problem, may be I'll give some edits to suWikt with my account now. Thanks --Uchup19 (talk) 05:05, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
@Uchup19: It is a matter of process as stewards only do things at a community after the respective community has had the opportunity to view a request and/or to have comment and/or approve. This is a centralised page for requests following discussions at/from communities, it is not a place to originate requests.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:25, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
@Billinghurst:here the moving page of voting (Vote). Thanks --Uchup19 (talk) 03:24, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
Those votes originate from here, with altered candidate (you), result and dates, which indicates it was done intentionally to deceive. Therefore, I do not think we can trust you with holding adminship. There is a lot of work that can be done without admin tools, please focus on that. Savhñ 14:00, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

User Ajeem95@ms.wp

@Ajeem95: thanks for volunteering. Mswiki has its own local bureaucrats, so we cannot grant administrator access there. Please contact one of the bureaucrats and use the local process for requesting adminship. Thanks, Ajraddatz (talk) 03:51, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

Former English Wikipedia Audit Subcommittee member. LFaraone (talk) 01:30, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, can we hold here for a bit? LFaraone (talk) 01:38, 13 November 2014 (UTC)
Sure... for both? -- Mentifisto 01:45, 13 November 2014 (UTC)
(steward hat off) Richwales never went through the local process for OS appointment, so I'm not sure this is proper from an enwiki arb point of view. Of course, we (obviously not me as enwiki is a homewiki for me, but "we") still do whatever the local ArbCom tells us... --Rschen7754 03:37, 13 November 2014 (UTC)
As part of the process to become a member of AUSC, the editor went through a community vetting process that is comparable with that used for appointments to the CheckUser and Oversight teams. A one-off second vetting would not serve a meaningful purpose. I've removed the hold on this request. LFaraone (talk) 18:00, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Seraphimblade@en.wikipedia

I would like to request oversight access to the English Wikipedia to assist with backlogs there. As an arbitrator on English Wikipedia, I have passed appropriate community vetting for these rights and have already identified to the Wikimedia Foundation. Seraphimblade (talk) 03:55, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

(Non-steward opinion since enwiki is a homewiki) You probably should be "formally" appointed by ArbCom at w:WP:AC/N, or at least have another arbitrator confirm the request, since this would fall under the "appointed by ArbCom" clause of the Oversight policy. --Rschen7754 04:04, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
i.e. something like this: [1] --Rschen7754 04:09, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
It is most unusual for an arbitrator to come here and ask for the rights to be given to them. Stewards are customarily advised by the English Wikipedia's Arbitration Committee, in the person of one of their members, as to any appointments that have been made and need to be put into effect by stewards, rather than single arbitrators showing up here on their own authority. While I am not as familiar as Rschen with the Arbitration Committee's internal procedures and the noticeboard matter, I nevertheless agree that this request ought to be made by the Committee as a body rather than by a single arbitrator, as the global Oversight policy invests the Committee as a body with the authority to appoint and dismiss Oversighters on the English Wikipedia, and it is essentially an internal English Wikipedia matter whether arbitrators have ex-officio the OS and CU bits. Regards, Snowolf How can I help? 04:24, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
From my perspective, it's more of a matter that we're making sure that it's on behalf of the entire Committee, as we're the ones who get yelled at if we don't do the checks. But yes, the general procedure (at least when Risker was doing this sort of thing) was 1) post on AC/N, and then 2) come here on behalf of the Committee. I'm told that there were issues in the past when this procedure wasn't followed, and an arb came here of their own initiative. --Rschen7754 04:28, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
Please accept my apologies if I misunderstood the procedures here. It was my understanding that arbitrators could request CU/OS access as required. If this was incorrect, it is not my intent to bypass the proper processes. Seraphimblade (talk) 04:51, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
They can request it as required, but the approval comes from ArbCom, not us; we just flip the switch once they've given us the okay. --Rschen7754 04:54, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

If you could place this on hold, the Committee will post a motion within the next 24 hours. GorillaWarfare (talk) 04:56, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

(non-steward comment) - Liteman, please read Global locks.

Nope, once per year when they fall below a certain level of activity and removal when they have no actions within one year. The request is legit and should sadly be done. -Barras talk 17:38, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
(ec)We have two standards. We have a January 1st one at which point any admin below 100 edits/logs in a calendar year is removed. And we have one where if they have zero edits in a straight 12 month period they are removed. Take a look at simple:Wikipedia:Inactive administrators for an explanation. This may be the first time the zero edits has affected a 'crat but its been used on admins for a long time. -Djsasso (talk) 17:40, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Adville@sv.wikiversity

I have a temporary adminship on sv.wikiversity after writing on the village pump (two following headlines) and starting an admin vote with two positive and zero negative. (I am also an admin on svwp and a board member of Wikimedia Sverige, my user page there. I think sv.wikiversity needs to get permanent Swedish speaking admins to make it easier for the developement of Wikiversity. I have under my short adminship helped to move pages by requests from users because they knew I could and they needed urgent help. I am well known in the sv-comunity so they know how to reach me. Adville (talk) 20:57, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

I have now put up a new vote sesion here. I will also promote it so users will se it.

Miscellaneous requests

Group rights at fr.wikisource

X mark.svg Not done @Zyephyrus: That is a configuration change to the groups that a 'crat can add and as such it needs a bugzilla request to achieve, it is not something that stewards can effect. It will need to be added to the config in the section # wgAddGroups scroll down to the frwikisource bit and it needs to have added 'bureaucrat' => array( 'accountcreator'),. As bugzilla is closing off soon for its migration to phabricator, you will need to be speedy, or we will have to wait until the queue opens in phabricator: about 24 Nov.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:14, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
Addendum. To note that the assignation of the right will be added to the 'crat role itself and be available to all crats, rather than to you as a 'crat. The addition will be similar to the ability to add autopatrolled/patroller rights that admins at frWS have.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:19, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
So I'll wait for the all 'crats addition. Thanks a lot! --Zyephyrus (talk) 13:37, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
We stewards don't handle configuration requests, since we don't have that access. You should go to phabricator: to have this done, though it is currently in the migration process from Bugzilla. Billinghurst meant that the right to add the "accountcreator" group would not only be assigned to you, but to 'crats in general, I believe. Savhñ 13:46, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

RomaineBot

Recently we have a global user group for OTRS members. On Commons, OTRS users had OTRS rights to be able to check whether OTRS templates are added by users who actually have the rights for such and to prevent false/wrong OTRS templates added. There are also some bots with OTRS rights. They have OTRS rights, because they otherwise would flood OTRS logs and tools. As the local OTRS right on Commons is moved to the global one, I would like to request OTRS right on the wiki for my bot account to continue my periodical work. Here the local OTRS right was removed (one of many) on Commons. Thanks. Romaine (talk) 10:40, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

@Rjd0060: this is the right as determined by OTRS, please advise.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:44, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
Hi billinghurst (and Romaine). Currently, here is how things stand: Commons is currently under discussion to adopt the global group and remove their own localized version. There is some minor hesitation at this point but it's too early to determine whether or not it will be enough to stop the proposal from passing. There was a mention at that discussion that perhaps the local Commons bots could/should retain the local group while the human users are in the global group, should Commons decide they want to be a part of the global setup.
But honestly (as an OTRS admin), I don't think it matters either way - we could add them to the group, or not. What I would like to do is ask the stewards to please put this request on hold indefinitely. If Romaine could send me/us (otrs-admins at lists.wikimedia.org) the details of what the bots do with the permissions templates that causes them to need the rights to avoid filters, etc. But really, I don't foresee an issue with adding their bots to the global group - once we figure everything out. Especially if the bots only edit on Commons.
On a final note, we're currently working out the final process for regular maintenance of this group (additions/removals of users as their OTRS status changes). But generally, all requests for global group modifications will be made by OTRS admins. This will be done to keep the list consistent with the users' actual OTRS account standing. More on that once things are finalized - it will be documented here on Meta and elsewhere. Sorry for the elaborate response. Does that clarify, or make it all worse? ;-) Rjd0060 (talk) 10:54, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
Sidenote to Romaine; why was the local group removed from the bot if it is actually not part of the global group?
The local OTRS right is removed from the bot because they want to remove the local OTRS right completely from Commons. At the moment all local OTRS rights have been removed from Commons, no exceptions.
What my bot does is or adding the OTRS template with ticket number to a large group of files which got permission with OTRS, or fixing an issue with the OTRS template. All changes to the OTRS template are monitored and checked to prevent abuse and errors. As my bot has added/changed OTRS templates multiple times, it is considered a must to have the bot OTRS right to keep it workable, otherwise the tools/check pages are flooded by the edits of my bot.
Until so far my bot has done only OTRS edits on Commons, but I can imagine that this can be done at nl-wiki too, and other wikis as well if an OTRS user requests it. I will send this in a mail as well. Romaine (talk) 11:24, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
Oppose Oppose All 5 bots that are active on Commons as OTRS members have been manually excluded from abuse filter 69, including RomaineBot, so no action is necessary here. --Krd 11:29, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
Time2wait.svg On hold until 10 December by when OTRS admins will advise whether to process this request. If discussion takes longer then suggest close as not done, and it can be added by recommendation of OTRS-admins with any subsequent batch to process.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:35, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
@Krd: to note that I have now imported Commons:Special:AbuseFilter/69 to m:Special:AbuseFilter/105 though without the special message. We will need to work out how to get translations of those available, and set them up at meta. @PiRSquared17: can you give some advice, or even run with that component?  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:51, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
Do we have OTRS permissions at meta, or what do we need this filter for? --Krd 11:54, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
It is a global filter, so it applies to small, medium and opt-in wikis utilising global filters. So these wikis will be able to be tracked from AbuseLog here.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:57, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
Ok. Well, I don't think we need the bots inside this filter, as they are hardly active at small wikis, but we need some more expressions for permission templates in different languages. Sadly I cannot edit the filter here… --Krd 12:11, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
OK, sDrewth/Romaine/etc.. After reviewing the information provided we can go ahead and approve this request, please. If Commons decides to full implement the functionality of this global group and the abuse filter the bot will need the flag. Thanks all. Rjd0060 (talk) 17:50, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
