Administrator access

User Aleksandr19@mzn.wp

Please clarify what is requested. Temporary adminship for 20 days? For what reason? Preferably a community discussion should happen first, certainly for stuff that is "extended". --MF-W 22:33, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
Temporary adminship for 20 days, I have indicated it here, Decision for extension will be available at the end of 20 days, thank you --Parthava 11:16, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
@Parthava: Still do you need the rights to be granted for Aleksandr19? If yes please state your reason clearly and provide link to local community decision. Community discussion should happen in a central place like Community portal or village pump, not on user talk pages.--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 14:06, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done Your account has been blocked in en wiki for abusing multiple accounts. Although the en wiki block is not related to this request, seems users voted here are your socks. So marking this as not done --Shanmugamp7 (talk) 10:51, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Mjbmr@fawikinews

Temp access for three months, thank you.  Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 07:58, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

The user has history of misusing the tool and being blocked in multiple projects, and in This RFA most of the votes are loan votes from fawiki and most of voters have no edit in faWikinews, I would like to mark this request as not done, but I would like to another steward take a look to this request Mardetanha talk 05:33, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
Vote page has been open since 12th Dec to 19th Dec and is locked by local admin, no objection in this time has been made. btw no misusing has been done by me.  Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 06:44, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
There is an existing problem between this user and a steward at the home wiki of the steward. This has resulted in statements, maybe accusations being made, and that are not relevant to a wikiworld; and noting that this user was blocked here for an extended period for continuing on that matter. I wish to know that in granting rights that these contentious matters are not going to occur in conversations on faWN.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:28, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
I'm good at avoiding issues like this happen but sometime the person don't like kisses and hugs, if you don't think this grant should not be done, you better have a good excuse for local community.  Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 13:02, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
That is called avoiding answering the question. The request was for a reassurance of how you would undertake the role and to not undertake contentious conversations/matters, not an inflammatory comment.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:22, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
Of course I'll refrain from occurring issues of conflict. But I didn't mean to avoid answering your question, I meant this request is for a community not only myself, 'cause I'm looking to help the project.  Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 08:28, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
I won't let the contentious matters happen in fawikinews, if is that what you asking, you have my word.  Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 10:18, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
The poll was unlock by billinghurst on 27th and is accepting new votes, please close this request, I'll open a new request if I felt it's ok to request otherwise I'll withdrew. Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 20:41, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

I marked this as not done. --MF-W 04:49, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

NickK@ukwiki

For the Arbitration Committee, Yakudza (talk) 23:19, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

I have sent the identification email to secure-info — NickK (talk) 01:08, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
I have received a confirmation from Philippe that ID process is completedNickK (talk) 01:49, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
just for the record (so that the decision is made knowing all (not) important facts and this matter cannot be brought to light as an unpleasant surprize): the Arbitration Committee has not followed the established procedure. the details are here (in Ukrainian) --アンタナナ 01:26, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, but this discussion is at leat partially an attempt to mislead the others. The procedure is here: uk:Вікіпедія:Арбітражний комітет. The two threads on the discussion page are about the following:
  1. Per policy, arbitrators should accept or reject the arbitration request. In this request, arbitrators have just placed link to the previous discussion where they accepted their submission instead of copying their votes once again.
  2. All arbitrators have signed the decision with just --~~~~, while User:Base wants them to sign with Support--~~~~. There is no reason why arbitrators should sign the decision in a particular form, and it has never been a part of the established procedure.
(The comment above is in my capacity of ex-arbitrator of ukwiki, not as of a checkuser candidate) — NickK (talk) 01:45, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
But why the arbitrators removed Base's and my comments? It looks like they want hide abuse. It is not difficult to put Support near the signature. But they did not do it, and remove comments instead.--Anatoliy (talk) 01:55, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
I think the main reason is that this page was not an appropriate place for comments, as comments were ultimately moved to the talk page. While I agree it is not that difficult to put Support near the signature (except that all arbitrators have to go back to this page and make this edit, while they probably have other things to do), is there a fundamental reason for doing this? Should arbitrators make one more edit and write, for example, <span style='color: green'>Support</span>--~~~~ instead of just Support--~~~~ if someone asks them? — NickK (talk) 02:05, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
So, if you agree, let wait when they put 'Support' or 'Oppose' and then put this request.--Anatoliy (talk) 02:07, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Why do they need to do it? This comment from an arbitrator makes it clear that all four available arbitrators supported this request. If you like gaming the system and assuming bad faith — yes, you can go ahead and ask arbitrators to confirm, but I don't see any point in it — NickK (talk) 02:11, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
I am initiator of this Arbcom request, and I want that my request will be processed according correct procedure. And I see no reasons to remove comments from request page. It was allowed in previous cases like here or here. That's why I consider that arbitrators here want hide their abuse and removed comments. Arbitrators abused procedure two times but did not correct themselves and removed comments instead. You say that it is not difficult to put votes, so let arbitrators do it. And please restore removed comments on the request page (it is allowed as I confirmed by links above).--Anatoliy (talk) 02:18, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Dear Anatoliy 1) It is not true. Formally, I am initiator of this request. 2) According to CheckUser policy#Access to CheckUser CheckUsers can be appointed by the Arbitrators only. After agreement, a member of the Committee should simply list the candidate on Steward requests/Permissions. Arbitrators agreed among themselves? Yes! What do you want more? --Pavlo1 (talk) 08:05, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
For reference, here is the first request for CUs for ukwiki: [1] (and the only request) --Rschen7754 06:04, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Please take your discussion elements back to your community and resolve there. I will put this on hold while you hold your discussion. Time2wait.svg on hold while community resolves the discussion around their valid process until 2 January  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:53, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Could you please confirm what exactly is needed from the community? It seems to be clear that all arbitrators supported the decision (and two of them, Pavlo1 and Yakudza have commented above), the discussion is primarily around the very important issue whether they arbitrators are to sign it with --~~~~ as they have done or with Support--~~~~ as User:Base (and now also User:Ahonc) want. As this discussion could last for ages, could you please confirm what exactly is needed as a decision of local community? Should all arbitrators sign here, for example, should they sign a new decision or what else should happen? — NickK (talk) 13:07, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
And why they cannot sign on ArbCom request page? I did not get answer yet.--Anatoliy (talk) 13:22, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Is there any guarantee that this would be enough for User:Base and he will not request, for example, changing text colour to green or translating their comments to English or Japanese? There is no rule requiring arbitrators to sign in a particular form, so this can last for ages — NickK (talk) 14:28, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
What I asked them is not decoration of their votes but clarifying whether they are voting with "Support", "Oppose" or "Neutral". The section the vote is being held in is named "Votes of arbiters concerning approving the decisions' project". Concerning. Not pro the decision, not against but just concerning. Perhaps you have some paranormal abilities, but I can't read arbiters' minds and know what option do their votes stand for unless they write it down using any understandable way. I prefer textual way in Ukrainian, but if you like colours more I don't mind as long as it's common set of colours used in voting templates/icons. Japanese and English are also fine with me. But I can't see why you think I'd require several ways of saying the same thing when I'm just asking for one. --Base (talk) 15:15, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
There at least three reasons why your requests do not make sense:
  • If a person signs a decision without any comments, it means he or she supports it. A common sense says that if a person does not support the decision, he or she will sign it clearly indicating his/her opposition
  • A comment from an arbitrator Zlir'a in response to your request states that this decision was supported by all four arbitrators who participated in discussion
  • A comment from an arbitrator Pavlo1 (who initiated the request and did not participate in discussion) states that this decision was consensual.
I don't see any reason for gaming the system and assuming bad faith here and requesting anything else — NickK (talk) 16:19, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
@Rschen7754: @Billinghurst:: as my question to stewards got lost in comments by Ahonc and Base, I'm repeating it again: what exactly do you need from a community? What proof do you need that the discussion was resolved? — NickK (talk) 16:19, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
I'm personally of the mind that we should go ahead and grant this request. --Rschen7754 16:26, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
I agree. --MF-W 04:49, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
I have no issue with the decision, it was that the community was disputing its own decision so I was giving them time to discuss and understand their issue. The application of CU rights was not urgent, so could wait out a discussion at the local wiki. Either way, THIS page is not the place for your discussion. Your local community is where YOUR discussion over YOUR processes should take.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:11, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
The main issue is that there is no ongoing local discussion as User:Base (who opened the thread asking arbitrators to sign the decision in a different way) was blocked for trolling and edit wars. That's why I wanted to know what stewards will consider as the resolution of the issue — NickK (talk) 11:00, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
NickK lies, the issue is not block of Base (it will not resolve block), the issue is dealing not according procedure. It is not hard to put votes in decision, but NickK decided to go by other way - convict stewards to agree with him. If going according procedure, NickK may got CU rights 2 days ago. And he can already ask arbitrators to add his votes. But he selected another way…--Anatoliy (talk) 16:48, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
Please do not make groundless accusations. I can repeat my statement once again: The main issue is that there is no ongoing local discussion as User:Base (who opened the thread asking arbitrators to sign the decision in a different way) was blocked for trolling and edit wars. User:Base opened the thread, there was some sort of discussion, he is now blocked, and there is no discussion since yesterday morning. I have never stated that Base's block has any impact, simply there is no active discussion and topicstarter is now blocked (and thus can't revive it). Once again, there is no procedure requiring arbitrators to sign decisions in a particular way, and I am not going to impose any invented procedure to arbitrators - it's up to them to decide how they sign their decisions. And in no case I want to convict anyone. However, it's you who want to make me convince someone: either convince arbitrators that they have to sign decisions in a different way (completely groundless claim, and there is no reason why they should follow), either convince you and Base that you are wrong (almost impossible as your goal is clearly to give the ukwiki ArbCom the runaround) or convince stewards that your accusations are false (much more realistic as your actions lack reasons). I really do not like the choice between these three options, nor I do want to become a plaything, but you force me to get involved in this — NickK (talk) 17:36, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
@NickK: I consider you as clever user, so you should understand that solving of this discussion is putting votes in decision. After it there will be no more arguments about abusing procedure.--Anatoliy (talk) 16:58, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
I don't see any point in it. I do not know what else you and Base will want to do to give ukwiki ArbCom the runaround, thus I don't want to act as an intermediary between you and ArbCom — NickK (talk) 17:36, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
The community can dispute the decision all it wants, but it's the ArbCom's decision that matters. There was a recent case on enwiki where enwiki ArbCom violated their own internal procedures: [2] but we still granted the rights, because it was by motion of the Arbitration Committee (I'm not saying that has necessarily happened in this case). If they are not following their own procedures, then that's a local issue and the arbitrators can be removed in the next election, or the community can indicate that they prefer elections instead. We should be consistent, and not treat ukwiki any differently just because we can't read Ukrainian. --Rschen7754 15:15, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
In the past arbitrators did not always put "support" or "oppose" before their signatures. See, for instance, w:uk:Вікіпедія:Запити_на_арбітраж/Блокування_Ffederal. So, I think this request should be granted. Ruslik (talk) 18:05, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
This even seems to be a common practice since 4th ArbCom convocation: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. That's why I don't understand why the format used by ArbCom is considered by Ahonc and Base as invalid — NickK (talk) 00:26, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Yes check.svg Done - Firstly, that page is not a good place to discuss local stuff. Secondly, the ArbCom may appoint CUs as they wish as long as they arbitrators have been elected with the standards needed for CU/OS elections (25-30 support votes), see CheckUser policy#Access to CheckUser. Some stewards already stated above that this request should be granted and I also see no reason to keep that on hold any further and discuss the issue here any further. I've now set checkuser rights for NickK on ukwiki as per this request. -Barras talk 00:48, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your work. Happy New Year! --Pavlo1 (talk) 06:35, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

@Asger: does the rule of 210 days of inactivity apply to edits and/or logs? Because Fredelige deleted a page on 1 June 2014... Trijnsteltalk 22:16, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
Good question. The rules about inacitivity does not state, whether logs should be taken into account or not when deciding that a admin is inactive. I do not think that this scenario was taken into account in the vote on inactivity. I will open a discussion about the matter on the Danish Wikipedia. --Asger (talk) 17:18, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

Cycn@wikidatawiki

Goodday,

Because of the changed Wikidata:Deletion policy after the closure of Wikidata:Requests for comment/Redirect vs. deletion I wish to request the removal of my administrator rights. I am categorically opposed to this scheme and I won't be a part of its implementation, but as it has become policy it would be best to disable me from deleting items and this violating this policy.

I will remain active in other ways, as far as the policies allow me to.

Scrutineers to enWP elections

Status:    Done

Removed the checkuser rights for Barras, Trijnstel, and Matanya at English Wikipedia following their temporary assignation to undertake scrutineer duties there. (Email request to stewards).  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:55, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Aren't you a local sysop on enwiki? --MF-W 23:35, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
Yes, and I was also the reserve scrutineer, which indicated that I was sufficiently removed from the process. To also note that they were rights granted via Stewards' noticeboard, rather than here, and not present in our temporary permissions archive. All things that we can look to improve next year.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:05, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
The latter is not true: Steward requests/Permissions/2014-11#Matanya@enwiki. Trijnsteltalk 11:54, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
Trijnstel, I said the temporary permissions archive, where I would expect to see them, though it is good to know that they were separately requests here.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:16, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
IMO, it falls into an exception for being a non-controversial removal, as described in our policy. Though not self-requested, it is clear that it should be done the way it was after the scrutineers' participation was ended, thus there was no decision taken by Billinghurst. It would have been better though, if this request had been started by a commissioner/coordinator.—Teles «Talk to me ˱C L @ S˲» 00:55, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
For transparency, I was the one who sent the email to the list; in the past the scrutineers have removed the rights themselves following the elections. I know some people have viewed CU/OS granted by ArbCom to be okay for homewiki actions, but as we recently had a case where enwiki ArbCom didn't follow their own procedures recently regarding CU/OS granting, I'm not so sure that this is a good practice for stewards from an ArbCom homewiki to be granting permissions on that wiki moving forward, as it could be controversial. --Rschen7754 05:20, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Look how many times it's linked, you're just denying local policy as a steward. He is a great guy I'm sure he can collect votes if he really wanted to be active again and help the project. I just don't wanna inactive users have a sysop access, @Nemo_bis left him a message in the September 'cause he was in sysop list but he didn't respond and that's how we lost local uploads.

As I said, local policy exist but there is not discussion made about it since 2011, so now I'm asking local community to comment and vote about it 'cause you guys don't accept that. Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 11:02, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
We accept local policies, but for it to be a local policy it should have local community consensus. Since it's you requesting this based on a "policy" you created, and without any proof of community consensus (either now or in 2011, when that was created), we will not act. That the community hasn't said anything is an argumentum ex silentio, and does not form approval. If consensus is reached (or has been reached in 2011), please provide proof. Savhñ 14:59, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Do you guys read anything I write here. I said I'm on it that means there is ongoing discussion, you can close this for now. I'll open a new request after we reached a consensus. Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 16:42, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

Cant it be proceeded per AAR? --Base (talk) 10:26, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
Yes, Mjbmr, we do read what you write. You write "there is not discussion made about it since 2011", implying that it was discussed in 2011, yet you now say that the discussion is ongoing and fail to provide a previous discussion (which i what I asked). Hadn't there been previous community consensus, then it wouldn't have been a local policy, while you claim it was. It is in both our and your interest to keep this process as clear as possible. Regarding AAR, it would not apply if there was (or is) local consensus, which we will not override. Otherwise, it will be handled with the process. Savhñ 11:39, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Not for anything lower than administrator. --Rschen7754 23:56, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
Hello,
Actually giving the rights to Mjbmr is too risky, because of the all the issues he have had before, with some admins in fa.wikinews & also fa.wikipedia, BUT as this user is not blocked definitely, so, now if he do proper edits & contributions then he may be granted any user editor rights, I just have told him that I can not gave him back the rights which is taken from him by other admins previously BUT he may go throw the normal process of gaining access just like any other normal editors.
The user has history of problems with Wikipedia and being blocked in multiple projects,
As an example:
When one of the Stewards told that, in his "RFA most of the votes are loan votes from fawiki and most of voters have no edit in faWikinews", he emphasize on that's because RFA have been open from "12th Dec to 19th Dec and is locked by local admin"!...
Here is the poll which he made for his adminship[9], Good, No problem. BUT what is interesting is one of his supporters puts a start and an end time for the poll [10]. Here the same user just ended the poll[11]. And here Mjbmr himself also finished this poll as a <<<"successful request for adminship">>>. [12]. So Of-course this is considered as an end... Then also after that, in the same day, he made this request [13]. SO, his RFA votes problems, is not because a local admin locked the page!
Best Regards, --KhabarNegar 08:54, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
@KhabarNegar What do you mean, look at your own block log in fawiki, I though you're familiar with the wiki. also I asked Florance not to close that page I just fixed the template, putting a start and a end date is per policy but I asked him also not to so I can collect more votes for permanent adminship. btw you're not doing anything with your sysop right your just deleting pages. you don't wanna help the project. Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 09:25, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
KhabarNegar being blocked in fa.wp is not related to this case. Why are you holding this against him/her? The way you talk is not civil. About the case: Mjbmr is right that فلورانس (Florence) closed the RfA as successful but I can't understand why. Is he a 'crat? Not even admin (Florence is a cross-wiki hat collector, see his edits in small Wikis) and closing a RfA with 5 supports (and mainly loan from fa.wp) is weird for me but it's up to stewardsAmir (talk) 09:40, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
I know what you all trying to do, do your thing, I'm out. Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 09:46, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
hi, for all- Mr KhabarNegar- Sorry for writing, your comment has no capability of documenting, if I requested for him because there is no active admin in that project . and this user Mjbmr I didn't know him that this much and I didn't know him before and you're an admin and I don't expect you for not recognizing this. and if I put date for it and closed it because if a poll cross it date it's not acceptable in meta and I didn't do anything wrong. and if I closed it was because there is no active admin in that project and edit on it its not approving or denying qualification of that user.
Mr Aminr , my activities shows for what I'm editing, from you as a bureaucrat I didn't expect commenting like this . i,m like save project and help to this big encyclopedia colection and admin or other right tools for me. I don't need hat or admin right so I will be unable without them. where ever needed and I can cooperate with wikimedia I'm ready. but I laughed hard for you calling me a hat collector. I hope you don't loose your hat!!. --Florence (talk) 23:13, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
