Administrator access

KSFT@jbo.wikipedia

I'm not sure what to put here. Both of the people who replied to my request supported it. Let me know if I'm leaving something out. KSFT (talk) 22:13, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

Please contact the local bureaucrat, jbo:User:PierreAbbat, first to see if he is going to address your request. If it turns out he is inactive and doesn't respond to queries, stewards can step in. --MF-W 02:46, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg: I attempted to contact him about a week ago, but it seems like he's inactive. KSFT (talk) 03:04, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
I have pinged the 'crat at enWP.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:12, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
He responded and has made me an admin, so I guess this can be closed, although he's still inactive on jbowikipedia. KSFT (talk) 12:06, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
Brilliant. It might be a good idea to indicate locally that the request is closed as well. --MF-W 22:45, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

Sergentul@ro.wikiquote.com

I am sysop on Romanian Wikiquote (and also on ro.wp) and I don't consider that Sergentul is fit to have administrator rights as he doesn't seem able to understand and follow the policies. He has been blocked on Romanian Wikipedia recently and he was also warned for using sockpuppets. Also, the local policy says that a candidate must apply here to get the permissions. Even though it's a small community, the users from Wikipedia have voted in the past for worthy candidates, so there is no reason to bypass this step. Firilacroco talk 21:57, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

Fastily@test.wikipedia.org

Hello, could someone please take a moment to accept or decline my request for tools? There don't seem to be any active bureaucrats on testwiki that aren't already stewards. Thanks! :) -FASTILY 01:46, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Not done. Normally I'd be fine with stepping in when the local crats haven't dealt with it, but in this case with past drama there I think it is best for the locals to look over the nomination. Please contact crats through a noticeboard or individually and have them review your case. Sorry, Ajraddatz (talk) 01:59, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: Thanks for the prompt reply. Your instructions confuse me. I am posting here because there don't seem to be any active crats on test.wikipedia who aren't already stewards. Also, I'm not aware of a bureaucrat's noticeboard (that is actively watched) on test.wikipedia. If one exists, could you please point me to it? Thanks, FASTILY 02:11, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
I can't find one. Try going through testwiki:Special:ListUsers/bureaucrat and message active ones. Ajraddatz (talk) 02:46, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: No disrespect, but that is not a helpful suggestion. I have already gone through the list, and I don't see any active crats who are handling tool requests. Regardless, I'm hesitant to mass message the few users who might be active because it could be perceived as forum shopping. -FASTILY 03:49, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
(Edit conflict.) Never mind, request was handled by Legoktm. Thanks anyways -FASTILY 03:52, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Mww113@testwiki

I would like sysop access on the test wikipedia for the purposes of testing changes to the interface in the MediaWiki namespace. I had proposed a change to the interface on the English Wikipedia on en:MediaWiki:Antispoof-conflict-bottom which was discussed and then implemented. However, the page ultimately had to be deleted because the links were shown to users as source code rather than links. I'd like to do some testing to make sure I fully understand the reason why this happens before I file a bug report. If I end up having to report a bug, which is then fixed and implemented into the software, I will need to do testing to verify that the bug fix works as intended. There are other MediaWiki namespace changes that I would like to propose as well, but given this issue, I would like to test them on the test wikipedia before proposing them on enwiki. I am making this request here because the local permissions page on the test wikipedia is backlogged, and if I end up needing to file a bug report, I would prefer to do it sooner rather than later. Mww113 (talk) 06:08, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment Comment Hi. Visit testwiki:Wikipedia:Requests/Permissions for local requests. Alan (talk) 22:36, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
    • I just posted there as well; but as the test wikipedia states it is not a community, I was under the impression that sysop rights there are not predicated upon the normal consensus process. In this case, having sysop access is merely a technical necessity to conduct the testing that I would like to do. Since there are users who have been waiting since August, I figured it would make sense to ask here. There is already consensus on enwiki for the aforementioned interface change, and I'd like to test sooner rather than later as it could take a while to to go through the bug report process even after the testing is complete (should that be necessary). Best, Mww113 (talk) 22:56, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
Not done. This will be handled locally on Test-Wiki. --Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 04:32, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
Done locally. Thanks! Mww113 (talk) 04:37, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

Closing as not done. Despite aknowledgement, no local request has been placed. Should you wish to request adminship on that wiki, please place a request on a visible community page (Travellers pub, ...) and file a new request here after a few days. Since there are no local admins on ro.wikivoyage, we greatly appreciate your offer to help, but please allow for community input. Savhñ 03:30, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

NehalDaveND@sawikipedia

Here I read about Patrolled edits. For this I want Recent Changes Patrol Rights. Because in sa.wikipedia so many changes are vandalism and wrong. Since 2 year I am seeing in recent changes for this vandalism etc. But it is very difficult if I don't know which edit should be seen or not. This right will be helped me for this and my work will be fast and easy. Here I put in village pump and sa.wikipedia admin said that, "This is behind his rights" So I am asking here. NehalDaveND (talk) 07:50, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

here you can see what is difference between Patrol and autopatrol. I want patrol rights which are different. If not please guide me. Thank you. NehalDaveND (talk) 09:38, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
I am asking for This right. NehalDaveND (talk)
(edit conflict) Commonswiki (same as enwiki) uses a different set of rights than sa.wiki. As you can see here, sa.wiki does not have this right and so we won't grant it to you. -Barras talk 09:48, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
Okay! but if I want to enable this right is sa.wiki can I do so or that right is only for commanswiki and en.wiki ? NehalDaveND (talk) 09:51, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
You'd require community consensus to get this right enabled on sa.wiki. -Barras talk 09:52, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

Jayantanth@bnwikisource

Please give me the access as discussed by local community consensus. Thank you. Jayantanth (talk) 04:50, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

On the projects with such small editing communities we do not usually grant bureaucrat permissions. Ruslik (talk) 19:05, 21 October 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Ruslik, I know the small wiki classification, But our bnws is growing day by day. As of now there is less than 10 admin,but community needs a minimum one bureaucrat. So what kind of consensus from the the local community you need to grant this permission? If small wiki community wants one bureaucrat/ maintain it from local ( you can monitor from global),what is oppose here? Jayantanth (talk) 04:07, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done. In the past, bureaucrat access was granted on very small projects. This has not been the practice for several years. At the moment the community is far too small to support a bureaucrat particularly as, in effect, the only role now is creating administrators. It isn't a question of getting X number of supports to create a bureaucrat, it's a question of the size of the community as a whole. QuiteUnusual (talk) 14:45, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
So What is the WMF plan? Not to grow small wiki? Where is the policy, not to grants bureaucrat access for a small wiki? What is the plan with one or two bureaucrat in small wiki? Should you remove their access? The meta community just through out local community decision. Please explain. Thank you. Jayantanth (talk) 16:33, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
You do not need to be a bureaucrat to "grow" your wiki. Ruslik (talk) 16:23, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

According to the local re-election rules the user has to start a re-election after 30 days of request (15.09.), which is now over. Please remove the sysop rights. Thanks. Der Umherirrende (talk) 16:34, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

According to this page (February 2015) he has developer rights, so he has the rights now as a developer (like Cirdan who has the sysop rights for his work as a checkuser and also hasn't been elected as a sysop and like most of the members of the Schiedsgericht, see here). --Winternacht (talk) 17:31, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
There is no concept of developer on dewiki. If he needs the rights for this work as MediaWiki developer, there should be a global groups (Special:GlobalGroupPermissions) to have the rights on all wmf wikis and not dewiki. MediaWiki Developer usually working for all wikis and than needs rights on all wikis. Der Umherirrende (talk) 18:59, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
That’s right, but up to now, there is no such global group. And in the past, there have also been other developers at dewiki which only had the sysop rights because of being developer, see for example here Domas Mituzas and others in the past. This has been and is now the way of handling this issue, if developers have the sysop rights for their function as developer. And therefore, it should also be this way now, until Magnus says, he doesn’t need the rights anymore for his work as a developer or until there is such a global group. I noticed him about this discussion, so if he wants, he can say something about this from his own perspective. As long as he is a developer, he should remain the rights as long as he needs them and as there is no global group for the developers. --Winternacht (talk) 19:55, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
This is a matter which should be resolved on dewiki before stewards can action it. That said, there is no reason for a developer to have sysop access on any wikis (in that capacity); the two roles are not related. Please start a local discussion and come back when it is resolved. Ajraddatz (talk) 20:01, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
Domas Mituzas was system administrator and not developer. For a system administrator it could be more relevant to have sysop rights, but for this reason the global group was created (or could be used). A developer does not need the rights in advance, he can get it global or ask for temp local rights, if needed. There is no fast needed rights in case of imminent danger. Der Umherirrende (talk) 20:14, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
Question: Is it possible for stewards to create such a global group for developers now, where they can get all the rights needed for all wikis? Or what has to be done for that? --Winternacht (talk) 20:04, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
Technically yes, but we probably won't do that. There is no need for volunteer MediaWiki developers (in that capacity) to have any sort of advanced access on Wikimedia, as the roles are entirely unrelated, and those who do need access are system administrators.

Just any volunteer MediaWiki developer? I doubt that very much: en:Magnus Manske#Development of MediaWiki. --Winternacht (talk) 20:42, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
This is untrue, we have enough global groups for those who need access (especially Special:GlobalGroupPermissions/sysadmin), and Domas merely had local user rights due to a SUL conflict. Nobody will ever be allowed to circumvent right removals enforced by the community, except maybe WMF employees with their separate WMF role accounts. Vogone (talk) 20:09, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
Brion Vibber also had local sysop rights because of being a developer and had no regular rights at dewiki, and there hasn’t been any SUL conflict. Then I don’t understand this anymore, or has there been a big change in the last years? --Winternacht (talk) 20:39, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
Is or was part of the global group, see log. Der Umherirrende (talk) 20:46, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
Please don't use that list for giving people rights. Ajraddatz, there are reasons to grant volunteer developers rights (in fact, a few Wikimedia wikis do it explicitly in that capacity) just as there are for staff. There are currently volunteer developers in the sysadmins group (some with actual shell access and some with just the on-wiki global group thing), for example. Winternacht, has dewiki actually decided to give this user indefinite sysop because they're a developer? If not, I suggest this removal should go ahead. --Krenair (talkcontribs) 20:49, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
This request is about taking a right which can be needed also as a developer. So, why take a right which a person has for two reasons, just because one reason is gone? There are more people that have the right because of other reasons. Then put Magnus in the sysadmin group instead, so he can use these rights as developer. User:Hoo man is also a System administrator (comment there: "Volunteer, WMDE?", not WMF). Or User:JeLuF , he also is in the sysadmin group. Are they all paid? I don’t think so. Is it possible to give Magnus sysadmin rights then? I think this would be a good idea. He isn’t just any developer. When someone doesn’t want to have the sysop rights anymore, but still is a checkuser or arbcom member or bureaucrat, then he also holds the sysop rights and there is no reason to take them, just because he is no regular sysop anymore. --Winternacht (talk) 20:59, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
Krenair, there has never been the question that he shouldn’t have the rights as a developer. So, why should there be a decision, when there is no need for it, because he always had the sysop rights? Dewiki had never decided about the sysop rights about Brion or Domas either, but they had the rights. If there shall be a discussion or decision about it, then it’s necessary to know about it. That hasn’t been the case up to now. Telling that there has to be a discussion about that, is completely new. --Winternacht (talk) 21:05, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
The community asked for a(n) (re-)election and he didn't start it. There is no evidence that sysop rights are needed even only as an developer (btw that was your (Winternachts) opinion just four weeks ago, too). And if he really needs such rights as a developer then it would be sensible to have them globally, not only in one project. NNW (talk) 22:58, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
Surely it was (what else? it has been standard by now this way), and there has been noone saying that it wouldn't be so. So, you see that one of the 25 Wiederwahlstimmen needed for this request is based on the fact that in case of no election after the 30 days, he still can hold the sysop rights as a developer, but not as regular sysop without an election. And you also see that there has been noone that had another opinion about that up to now (I didn't read something like that anywhere), so I'm very astonished about this now. Here on the talk page of his AWW page are some more opinions that he should have the rights as a developer, so that's surely not only my opinion, Gruß Tom 2012: „Wie bereits bei Raymond vorgeschlagen[1] wäre ein Status wie etwa "Systemadministrator der Wikimedia-Server, daher keine Wiederwahl" für diesen Account angebracht.“ (Hey, you can find Gruß Tom also on this page despite the fact that he has been for the system admin rights for Magnus.) I've read that more often in the past. And noone told, that he shouldn't have the rights as developer. There has been no such opinion on the talk page either. It seems that there are different opinions now, and the question is, if he can get the system administrator rights now, then this discussion can come to an end. If not, we have to discuss it at dewiki first and see, what other people mean, for example on de:WP:AN.
So first the question here for the stewards: Can he get the system administrator rights instead (like other volunteer developers) or is there any problem with this (if yes, what would it be)? If not possible (for whatever reason): discuss it further at dewiki, before doing something here, because there is no hurry. Then the decision would be based upon something. --Winternacht (talk) 02:54, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
Requests for adding and removing sysadmin rights come from WMF staff usually. I suggest @Magnus Manske: to approach @Jalexander-WMF: so he can tell us to add him or not. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 09:06, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
I don't see a reason why two seperated aspects should be mixed. 1) Following de:WP rules for re-election he lost his sysop rights. There is nobody who disagrees. So his sysop flag for de:WP has to be removed by community consensus. 2) If he should have developer/system administrator/whatever rights (regardless if he needs them or if this would be honoris causa), then he might ask for them or the foundation/whoever might grant them. And de:WP community will be fine with this. But this is a completly different question and has got nothing to do with his lost of sysop rights in de:WP. NNW (talk) 10:24, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
Nobody on dewiki disagreed with the fact that Magnus holds now the sysop rights only for his work as a developer (do you think that it has to be or do you only think that the community might want that, but you don't think this way? this is not clear to me – then the community should be asked, how the opinions about that are, and not here, but there). So there is no reason to remove the rights. I don't think that there is a consens about removing the rights from a developer just because of AWW. Other developers hadn't even a AWW page, they were out of this system. They were also out of the system of removing the sysop rights because of inactivity. Domas was more than 3 years inactive as user (no edits or logs) and didn't lose the sysop rights because of inactivity, because he had the rights as developer. So you see, that this is no reason for removing the rights from developers. If – as in this case – someone has the rights not only as a normal sysop, but also in another function, then he holds the rights in this other function. If the WMF would give him system administrator rights, then he wouldn't need the sysop rights locally for that reason. But if not, then they should remain there. For example: He never had bureaucrat rights at dewiki, but he once even gave other users sysop rights with shell access. So that's the prove that he had not only normal sysop rights, otherwise that wouldn't be possible. He shouldn't lose the rights as a developer because of AWW. AWW has never been the way to decide about access to sysop rights as developer. Yes, I think the dewiki community will be fine with the access to system administrator rights (or something like that). And it also will be fine with holding the sysop rights as developer instead. There's no problem with that. It's just the question about the way that is best for that. Removing the sysop rights now just because of AWW would be one step before the other instead of after another, in my opinion. How about asking the Foundation and Magnus, what they think about that? They already got a ping above. I don't think that we're in a hurry, are we? Nobody disagreed that Magnus is a great developer. So why removing the rights (for this purpose) without an alternative user group or something like that? --Winternacht (talk) 19:02, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
This can result in the same discussion about Jimmy and his founder user group which can take forever. The result is a global founder group, this is also possible here. We should honor the work, but there is no need for extra privilige, just for honor. Privilige needed for work. Der Umherirrende (talk) 21:58, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

The current community consens is defined by votes, that means: No poll after a forced re-poll within 30 days needs remove of sysop. If the community want the sysop rights for other reasons than the need as sysop, than that is still possible after removed. That would also have the benefit of clear reasons in the log. Please close this section as rejected/invalid, if no steward would do the requested remove of the user right or close it as done by removing the user rights. Thanks.

Der Umherirrende simply asked for removing a flag according to the usual de-admin process and just because another user brings up something about "developer" &c with no context to this removing process this isn't done? Ridiculous. NNW (talk) 21:55, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
Citing from the instructions above "To request the removal of another user's permissions, you must gain consensus on the local wiki first". Community consensus is that the rights are to be removed a month after the recall quorum is reached and no reelection is started. There is no community concern at all concerning developer privileges as this is nothing the community ever had to decide. → «« Man77 »» [de] 13:13, 18 October 2015 (UTC)

The job of the stewards in this case is to determine if consensus exists and, if so, implement it. The opposer raises a valid point in that a number of the ostensible supports come from accounts with little-to-no experience on the project and do not explain why they are supporting, having either been just created or having had long absences from project. As there are only a handful of accounts, it isn't that hard to tabulate and analyze all the participants:

Name Opinion Local edits Kn-space Edits Global edits
Vikashegde Support 4 759 864
రహ్మానుద్దీన్ Support 67 97 9910
Vishwanatha Badikana Support 3 398 1728
Vidyu44 Support 4 616 672
Anithacav Support 1 7 7
Prashant Pandit Support 0 (Performed by IP) 0 1
Thejeshgn Support 1 3 103
Omshivaprakash Oppose 128 5113 8881

While it is true that the most active local participant opposed, I think it is reasonable to say that there are at least 4 supports from people who participate in Kn-language projects and would understand the needs of KnWikisource from their activity there and KnWiki sister projects. As such, I believe that there is a consensus at this point to allow access to the toolset for the minimum three months, and the project can reassess when the term expires. -- Avi (talk) 17:18, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Miscellaneous requests

This, that and the other@test2wiki

I would like to be added to the sysop and importer groups on this wiki. I am an active MediaWiki developer working on import-related bugs (among other things), and would like the rights on this wiki in order to test the importation of ProofreadPage data ("importer" group) and delete pages in order to reimport them ("sysop" group). I already have these rights on testwiki so I know what I'm doing :)

Re sysop rights, yes, technically there are bureaucrats on test2wiki who could grant me that right. But this wiki is a special case - most of the users with the bureaucrat right are busy developers with better things to do than grant rights on test wikis. So I hope you can make an exception in this case. This, that and the other (talk) 05:14, 10 October 2015 (UTC)
