Administrator access

Arjunaraoc@tewikisource

I had held temporary adminship on two occassions, when Telugu wikisource did not have active admins or active admins with technical capability to introduce the technology developments or administer the project. Currently also, there are no active admins with technical capability, I have proposed myself for permanent/regular adminship and received unanimous approval from 7 members. I request the stewards to grant the same, so that I can help with supporting Telugu Wikisource better.-- Arjunaraoc (talk) 02:58, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Done. Ajraddatz (talk) 06:33, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Ninjastrikers@mywikipedia

Hi, I would like to request for permanent admin rights for myself on my.wikipedia.org. Thanks! NinjaStrikers «» 02:16, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

Already done, see the removal request. ~ Nahid Talk 04:40, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

Geoleplubo@pcdwiki

Bonjour, I had rights for adminship from 25 december 2012 and I was granted for 1 year to expire on 2016-04-10. I am requesting a prolongation of my adminship statut and if possible for a permanent adminship. Thanks, Geoleplubo (talk) 23:05, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

On hold for a week, to allow for local discussion. Ajraddatz (talk) 23:07, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
Done. Ajraddatz (talk) 03:39, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

Nirmos@svwikiversity

Hi. I would like temporary adminship on Swedish Wikiversity to update old JavaScript. The project does not have any bureaucrats. No one has opposed to this at sv:v:Wikiversity:Café#JavaScript. Nirmos (talk) 08:17, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

@Nirmos: But as far as I understand through google translator, you didn't mention that you're applying for admin rights. Please make an announcement about your adminship and come back here if no one oppose. ~ Nahid Talk 15:21, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
Tagging as not done, no response from initiator. Please start a local discussion and then re-request the permissions here. Thanks, Ajraddatz (talk) 00:56, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
Well, he asked for admin rights on the given link after NahidSultan instructed him to do so. --Stryn (talk) 09:10, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
So he did. Given the rejection of the editinterface request I am not inclined to grant this, but I have no objections to another steward granting it. Ajraddatz (talk) 01:40, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

Дагиров Умар@cewikipedia

I request bureaucrat rights in Chechen Wikipedia. --Дагиров Умар (talk) 19:35, 21 March 2016 (UTC)

I do not think that five votes is enough. Ruslik (talk) 19:52, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
Continue vote? --Дагиров Умар (talk) 20:04, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
You can, of course, continue. Ruslik (talk) 20:18, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Comment Comment I see 16 supporting votes and 0 opposes on the request now. There's no global policy establishing a minimum number of votes as there is for CheckUser and Oversight. If we want to set restrictions for granting bureaucratship on small wikis, I think a RfC should be opened to discuss that. I don't think it is appropriate for stewards to override community consensus without a good reason. Defender (talk) 21:50, 27 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Out of the 16 users supporting the request, only 7 are members of the community there. Unfortunately, I don't think that this is a sufficient threshold to support indefinite bureaucrat access, given the past problems that the project has had. Also worth noting that this is basically a line-by-line repeat of an RfB by the same user a few years ago, which was rejected due to the canvassing of voters to the request. So there really isn't any excuse this time. Ajraddatz (talk) 21:57, 27 March 2016 (UTC)
Yep, from your side I think you are right. CheWiki does not seem to need a B now. If somebody needs admin rights, we will apply here. Ilya Drakonov (talk) 14:51, 28 March 2016 (UTC).
Mean time for me to retire. --Дагиров Умар (talk) 15:08, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
No, Umar, you are a good user:) We'll just continue working as sysops. Ilya Drakonov (talk) 15:27, 28 March 2016 (UTC).
There are many small wiki where there is a bureaucrat. The decision of the Chechen Wikipedia community is not respected. --Дагиров Умар (talk) 21:51, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
The problem is what you define as the Chechen Wikipedia community. Well over half of the votes there are by people who aren't members of that community, who only came at either your or someone else's request to vote for you, and aren't going to contribute beyond that. That said, the number of local users supporting is now up to 8. Maybe that is enough; I don't want to interfere will local project autonomy, but I am concerned with a) the past issues the project has faced, and b) the use of canvassing to gain support, since it has happened before on RfBs and will probably happen again. Ajraddatz (talk) 19:30, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
I will have to grant bot flags because we will have a grammar change from the government. --Дагиров Умар (talk) 20:15, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
Or you can just list them here and the stewards can do them. -- Avi (talk) 14:42, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
  • If the project has experienced participant and there is a consensus, I see no problems. No one will regret if I have this right. --Дагиров Умар (talk) 02:08, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done - I find the points raised by my fellow stewards compelling and agree with them, specially on that half of the voters ain't members of the community who only came to vote. —MarcoAurelio 09:27, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

CheckUser access

Ajraddatz@meta.wikimedia

Noting promotion here for transparency. Granted Ajraddatz CheckUser permissions per the above mentioned vote (26/0/0 → 100%). —MarcoAurelio 18:32, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

Oversight access

RadiX@ptwiki

As per local policy (which sets oversight terms at one year's length), please turn off and on the bit in order to register another term (it's also been done here). RadiX 20:41, 21 April 2016 (UTC)

EdwardsBot@global

Hi! I noticed my talk page got listed at User:MarcoAurelio/BotOps and EdwardsBot got listed at User talk:MarcoAurelio/BotOps. EdwardsBot can be removed from all user groups on all Wikimedia wikis, as far as I'm aware. This includes the "bot" user group and the "autopatrolled" user group. Global message delivery (and local message delivery) is now handled by MassMessage, of course. :-) --MZMcBride (talk) 23:33, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done The bot is not in the global group, has 'bot' and 'autopatrolled' status in the wikis where local groups can maintain these rights. You need to request individually on those wikis. ~ Nahid Talk 08:51, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
Hi @MZMcBride:. That list was a simple experiment because I wanted to propose a cleanup of bot flags on inactive accounts at this project. However I've not managed to post that proposal yet. Anyway, as local bureaucrat, I have removed Edwards bot's flag here at Meta. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio 10:00, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
Hi MarcoAurelio. Thanks for the local flag removal. Can you please also remove the other user groups listed at Special:CentralAuth/EdwardsBot? This is a self-request, basically. --MZMcBride (talk) 00:39, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
Hi MZMcBride. I'm sorry but all the projects in which EdwardsBot have local bot flag have local bureaucrats which can remove it, thus policy does not allow me to remove such permissions. This is a pretty annoying task, and maybe policy should allow us to act in this cases. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio 16:36, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
If ever IAR was meant to apply, I think it would be here. Thanks to MF-W for actioning this. Ajraddatz (talk) 17:54, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done My opinion is that stewards may remove all rights upon self-request. If only for the reason that it is better than to have someone wanting to lose his rights going "rouge", allowing removal by stewards to avert damage. --MF-W 18:00, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, MF-W. Looking at Special:CentralAuth/EdwardsBot, I see no.wikipedia.org still. Can you remove that group as well? I think it's the last one.
I'm pretty liberal about users staying in user groups (way more liberal than Meta-Wiki or Commons allow, to be sure). But keeping bots in the bot and autopatrolled user groups after the bot is no longer running seems silly. MassMessage is the wholesale replacement for what EdwardsBot was doing (message delivery to wiki pages) and I think any wiki community would want me to re-request a bot flag to do other bot activities there. Thanks again for your help! --MZMcBride (talk) 23:54, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
Done as well. --MF-W 21:14, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Various bots @ pl.wikipedia

Please remove bot rights due to more than 1 year of inactivity according to local policy. Local bureaucrats didn't answer to my request. The Polish (talk) 17:46, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

We generally don't step in when there are local bureaucrats unless it's an emergency, which this isn't. Have you tried asking on their talk pages, or pinging them on that page? Ajraddatz (talk) 18:33, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
As you can see quite well, The Polish pinged all of them, and was waiting for 5 months until the request was closed by a non-bureaucrat due to lack of reaction. All bureaucrats know about the issue, at least some of them were asked privately for any intervention. Tar Lócesilion (queta) 18:56, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
All bots requests should go to SRB. Ruslik (talk) 01:33, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
Yes, I do see that, but clearly they did not see it if they haven't answered either way. Some of those users are demonstrably active including on meta, so I don't want to step in if they have a reason for ignoring the request. Ajraddatz (talk) 02:28, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
It's a tough situation. Look, Pundit wrote he's thinking and he'd come back after a consultation with masti (ping). They saw it, at least Pundit and masti did. When this request was open, they answered to several other ones (maj = May, lip = Jul, sie = Aug, wrz = Sep, and paź = Oct). Let's ping them once again: @Masti, Matma Rex, Maire, and Pundit:. Tar Lócesilion (queta) 13:01, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
Hi. Either I did not get that notification in July, or I assumed someone else will handle it (it seems you can't see notifications older than 6 months, so I can't check). Local policy states that the flag may be removed after 12 months of inactivity, not that it must, and I am personally opposed to removing user rights merely due to inactivity. If everyone very much wants to strip these bots of their rights, I suppose I could do it. Please ping me in a week or so if no other bureaucrat responds. Matma Rex (talk) 13:18, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
The request is closed. Ruslik (talk) 15:24, 29 April 2016 (UTC)

Helmoony@arwikibooks

Arabic Wikiboks has currently one admin whose last edit was in July 2015. As a result, Arabic Wikibooks is flooded by pages created as test pages or spam that are currently handled by Global sysops/stewards. However, sometimes a native speaker is needed to judge whether a certain page should be deleted. (Such as when a certain page is not vandalism but out of project scope.) Helmoony and مصعب (see below) have volunteered to serve as sysops on Arabic Wikibooks. Both users are admins on Arabic Wikipedia and both are native Arabic speakers. An Announcement was made nearly 3 weeks ago in the Arabic Wikibooks Village Pump but only 2 users commented. I am requesting temporary adminship for both users for 3 months (that can be extended later). Thank you. Meno25 (talk) 14:42, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

(According to VP:VQSV, quote:

"Regardless of a user's status he/she can edit rules of Wikipedia that were not officially adopted, create articles related to the rules and hold elections to officially adopt rules." 

Users prepared rules regarding Arbitration Committee and held a discussion about it. Approximately 20 users took part in it. When 4 days were left before the end of the elections one of the administrators deleted, which goes against the rules. Please, restore the elections.) Aydinsalis (talk) 17:05, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

You are wrong: that page has been never deleted. Ruslik (talk) 19:13, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

But this is a local matter. Stewards have no role in closing such discussions. Ruslik (talk) 18:39, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
Ruslik, the question is not about discussion. The question is about voting and the election. Aydinsalis (talk) 01:01, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
Stewards also have no role in voting and elections of an arbitration committee. Ruslik (talk) 17:03, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
Of course you do not have any role. But you ought to control. Sysops do it: great vandalism, a huge fraud. You will not do anything? You can not do anything against vandalism and fraud? Aydinsalis (talk) 17:15, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
A team of stewards closes the elections and confirmation discussions. Further documentation can be found in the steward policies, election process, and handbook. - meta.wikimedia.org

Importers @itwikiversity

In Italian wikiversity there is no active bureaucrat. We want to ask if it is possible to have transwiki import permission (module already enabled) for the users:

Sometimes some imports for templates are needed. We ask the permissions for more than one user because none of us contributes steadily during the year, and one doesn't have to wait to another user's return to import something. Also I think that transwiki import is not a very powerful permission, so it can be assigned to more than one user. Thank you --Samuele2002 (talk) 21:20, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
