Administrator access

Selvasivagurunathan m@tawikinews

Hi, I'd like to request for a permanent administrator/sysop status to User Selvasivagurunathan m, as a result of the voting process that has taken place in here. Selva joined ta.wikinews in 2013, and actively participates in maintenance since 2013. At present, I'm the only active admin there. I'm sure, Selva would be able to help me to maintain the project in good standard. Thank you.--Kanags (talk) 07:51, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Not yet transcluded do you mean?--Bacria Andrei Catalin (talk) 18:52, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
@Bacria Andrei Catalin: I believe that Ruslik is indicating that wherever you have your nomination is that it is not clearly visible to your community for voting. Usually if your community has one page for nominations, and individual nominations are on subpages, they are transcluded onto the main nomination page. If you don't know how to transclude pages then please let us know and someone will come and assist.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:27, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I meant that without transclusion users may not have been able to notice an obscure subpage. The votes actually appeared just after it was transcluded. Ruslik (talk) 14:05, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

User Liridon@sq.wikipedia

The reason why I request here is because our three bureaucrats are inactive. The voting stared 2 months ago (27 August 2015), and if a Steward dont take action, this will take months until a bureaucrat return in sq.wikipedia. I'm administrator since 2009, and in voting process for bureaucrat, I have support of four administrators.--Liridon (talk) 22:04, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

I think I'm ok with a 6 month approval here? Anyone else have thoughts? MBisanz talk 01:14, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
Temporary bureaucrat rights isn't really common practice. Honestly, I'm not sure if there is enough support on that request to grant a bureaucrat flag at all. Ajraddatz (talk) 01:44, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
@MBisanz I'm not asking for temporary rights, I'm asking a steward to act in absence of local bureaucrat. @Ajraddatz you can see also other candidatures for admin and bureaucrats rights with 5 or 6 votes at sq.wiki, we are small wiki, and rules say you need "at least 5 supporters".--Liridon (talk) 12:21, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
Your wiki should either discuss whether to keep or remove these 3 bureaucrats, or decide how many days of no bureaucrat activity will allow us stewards to step in.--Jusjih (talk) 01:59, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
@Jusjih thanks for suggestion, as a small wiki that we are is clear that we dont need 3 nor 4 bureaucrats, we just need one who will be active. I just started a discussion in our Village pump, and waiting for ideas, maybe will vote for new rules.--Liridon (talk) 13:24, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
@MBisanz: I think that this should be moved to the admin section above, granted with absence of local crats, and let sqWP resolve their crat issues internally.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:39, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
Liridon is already an sqwiki admin, which is why I assumed this was a request for crat rights. MBisanz talk 12:16, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
Solved. Thanks for tips and recommendations. Local sq.wiki Bureaucrat gave me crat rights. --Liridon (talk) 19:09, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Str4nd@fiwikisource

According to the global policy on inactivity (see Admin activity review), which applies when there is no local policy, Inactivity -- is defined as zero edits and zero administrative actions on the wiki in two years.
For user Str4nd on fi.wikisource, he has made his last edit in June 2010 and last log action 6 November 2013. Both are over 2 years old. Str4nd is completely inactive as an administrator and as a user, and his sysop status should be removed. --Pxos (talk) 14:08, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done. The Admin activity review is a process that is done systematically. This permits for instance having the assurance that the user has been notified and given time to reply. As soon as there is a new review for 2015/16, Str4nd@fiwikisource will be adressed and consulted. Should you want to help, see Admin activity review/2014, which is currently being processed. Savhñ 14:25, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
Well, it doesn't seem to work according to policy. When str4nd was reviewed back in 2013, he didn't inform the community at all, but made instead a pro forma action (by deleting an empty category). The community could not discuss the matter according to policy. I have now contacted the user on fi-wikisource and I am waiting for his response. If he decides to make another single log action, do you say that this guarantees his sysop status for the next 2 years? It's against the AAR policy, isn't it? The policy states that the local community should decide whether an inactive sysop can keep his rights after two years of inactivity. --Pxos (talk) 14:52, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
Then do so. Make a local policy or hold a local vote on the particular user's rights. His activity will next be reviewed by our process in a month or so here when I set up AAR 2015 (assuming nobody has done it before then). Ajraddatz (talk) 18:13, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
This is not the correct place but still I want to write my question again: The AAR policy tells me that when a sysop is detected, who has been inactive for two months, the sysop himself must notify the community and the community then will decide the matter. Now it seems that if the sysop fails to do that but instead makes a pro forma action every two years, this trumps the community every time. Is that the normal procedure that stewards follow when deciding the matter that they ought not to decide? Please answer this. --Pxos (talk) 19:26, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
Never mind, I have started a community discussion on local policy at the Finnish Wikisource. I hope that things sort out by the end of 2015. --Pxos (talk) 15:16, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
AAR is mainly oriented at removing sysops who are inactive and unresponsive. If he performs a log or responds, we will not remove them. If you want to set stricter criteria, feel free to discuss them locally. Savhñ 15:24, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

I was the only admin on this wiki, and my sysop rights expired November 3. I started a discussion thread November 3, and there is no activity there as of now. I request to grant me a 1 year temporary sysop status. Elvonudinium (talk) 05:54, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

  • Done Granted for 1 year to expire on 2015-11-12. No meaningfull opposition, has had two previous runs as temporary sysop, so 12 months should be acceptable. To prolong your (interface) adminship, please start another election a few days before your temporary access expires, and after a week post your request again to this page. Thanks. -- Avi (talk) 15:07, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Wertuose@azwikibooks

We have just few users on az.wikibooks and our admin was globally banned 2 months ago. So I need admin flag till we elect new admin. I need it for technical issues and to delete this and some other broken pages which were renamed by Phabricator team to make it easy to find and delete them. I am a sysop in az.wikipedia since 2009. Thanks. Wertuose (talk) 19:11, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

I'm inclined to temporarily grant for 3 months to facilitate a permanent request. Any objections? MBisanz talk 23:39, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Granted User is trusted and well-known, Granted for 3 month till 17-november-2015 Mardetanha talk
I do not understand what is going on here. Why are you, MBisanz and Mardetanha, suddenly digressing from the normal practice of always at least requesting a local announcement, even if it's clear that there will be no reply (as it is the case most of the time)? --MF-W 18:42, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, Mardetanha. I can write an announcement at the Village Pump, but there is very poor activity in this project, so no one will react to it. If you check last 30 day activity, you will find just 4-5 useful edits. But I will inform active users of azwikipedia.--Wertuose (talk) 13:21, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
It would be great, I also checked the edits for past month and no useful contribution or contributor were found Mardetanha talk 18:46, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Jimmy Xu@zhwiktionary

Requesting for importer right. I'm not sure whether this right would still be assigned, but we currently have a backlog of AfD needing to be imported over to wikt or other projects, and apparently the community prefers to do the move through Transwiki. The discussion has been open for more than a month. Thanks. Jimmy Xu (talk) 01:22, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

user:Shizhao is interwiki importer and admin on zhwiktionary and importer on zhwikisource. He is active. Can you not ask him? Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 10:13, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

This is an announcement that I have been granted a temporary adminship at the Finnish Wikiquote by the local bureaucrat for three months. This temporary agreement will last until 21 February 2016. Please add my username to the list of temporary administrators and remove my rights at fi.wikiquote when the time is up. Thank you. --Pxos (talk) 12:33, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

I added it to SRAT. (I would personally prefer, however, if for such adminships simply removal would be requested when the time comes). --MF-W 12:45, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Abuse of power by a Commons administrator

Status:    Not done

@steward I was blocked on Wikimedia Commons earlier today by Commons:User:Christian Ferrer (CF). I have no means of appealing this block through channels on Commons, so I am posting my request here. I request that

  • this block be lifted
  • CF be warned for abusing of his powers on grounds that he was too closely involved in the situation to act impartially
  • CF be warned that he wrongly accused me of vandalism.

The sequence of events involving CF were that as part of a dispute he accused me of having made https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Commons%3AValued_image_criteria&type=revision&diff=148687569&oldid=137537633 this] amendment to the VI criteria without consulting the community. (The amendment was made nine months ago). He undid the amendment. When I pointed out that I had consulted the community three days earlier and that nobody had responded he accused me of vandalism and blocked me. All the changes that I made were done in absolute good faith with absolutely no hint of vandalism. Since he was closely involved in the original argument, I submit that he abused his power by blocking me. I find this type of behaviour unbefitting for anybody, let alone an administrator.

Will you please also advise CF that if he behaves in this manner in the future (or has behaved in this way in the past), he could lose is administrator privileges. Martinvl (talk) 21:20, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not for stewards' attention. If you feel that your block is not appropriate, you can appeal it by writting at the bottom of your Commons talk page {{unblock|1=Blurbl blah --~~~~}} being "blurbl blah" the reasons that make you think that the block is wrong, etc. A Commons administrator different from the one that blocked you will review the block. We can do nothing in this case, as stewards are no arbitrators nor super-administrators. Thanks for your understanding. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio 00:54, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
