(I'm one of those few Pashto Wikipedians who has been active 24 hours since 2017, and has been admin three times. Now I want be admin for the fourth time and ned access to Interface adminship too, because I'm quite good in working on MediaWiki pages, and have quite a lot to do there too.)

have a nice day: The Amjad (talk) 17:47, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
Hello. I don't see previous adminship under your account. Were you renamed or did you use a different account? Also, did you mention interface adminship in your pswiki request page? --MF-W 18:58, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
"11:43, 19 August 2018 Ladsgroup (talk | contribs | block) globally renamed Bloch khan to The Amjad (per request)" --Alaa :)..! 22:23, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

@MF-Warburg: Sir, you know me, I was the one who was working on Incubator for Pashto Wikivoyage.

  • Yes it's true that I changed my name, and I have done this just for a simple reason ; Amjad Khan is my favourite actor, and i was trying to get his name "Amjad Khan" as username, but it was unavailable or taken by someone else.
  • I didn't knew that we needed to make a special request for it interface adminship, but I have mentioned in request in pswiki from before, that; I'm going to work on everything in Pashto Wikipedia, which includes MediaWiki sites too. But if it's not enough reasons then its alright its enough for me to be administrator and help others, even though I know that Pashto Wikipedia need more work in MediaWiki too.

Thanks a lot :-) The Amjad (talk) 14:32, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

Vermont@so.wiki

Originally posted on SRM, but I was redirected here by Ruslik. I'm requesting 48 hour sysop on sowiki to deal with unattributed, machine-translated pages being added by about a dozen IP's and one user. There are hundreds of pages in question, and require manual sorting as some of the pages created by these users and IP's are suitable for Wikipedia. At the time of this request, I just finished sorting through the first IP on my list, and the pages that need deletion are listed here. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 21:07, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

While I have no idea why Ruslik sent you here (this is certainly the wrong place to discuss adminship requests), I don't really see why you need adminship. You seem to be able to sort the pages into the delete category already and clearing that is a trivial task which can be done by any GS/steward upon request on SRM. Kind regards, --Vogone (talk) 21:31, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
Okay. I was under the impression that, in the event of a lot of pages needing deletion (like this), it is better to request temp adminship and deal with it directly than to tag it for stews/GS's. If that is not the case, I'll just continue tagging and request on SRM for it to be cleared. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 21:33, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
Vogone Thanks for deleting those (almost 400, wow!) pages. There's 150 remaining tagged for deletion, many more that have yet to be tagged (of the list of IP's I have, which isn't complete), and many edits to existing pages that I haven't gone through yet which require removal and possibly RevDel, as it's a violation of the CC BY-SA 3.0 license the text is under. I'm expecting to get to the edits this weekend, and am hoping to sift through all the pages by Friday. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 00:37, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Iliev@bg.wikinews

In connection with the proposal to close the Bulgarian Wikinews, could you please grant me sysop rights on the project for one year. While this isn't the usual practice, considering the case specifics, LangCom's clerk, Steven, was very kind to offer his endorsement. My initial intention was to (unusually) ask for indef rights, but I agree that one year may indeed be the reasonable compromise. Many thanks in advance.

I was the first test-admin of the Cantonese Wiktionary project and I did a lot of the grunt work from developing a standardised page format to establishing categories. (Of course, I fully acknowledge that there are also other users who contributed a lot.)

Hello. I was elected administrator in re-election (3:0:0) as per vote rule during a 2 weeks on Korean Wiktionary. Thanks. --Garam (talk) 10:48, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

Hello, I am inclined to grant your request but would it possible for you to tell me why did you block this ip? Mardetanha talk 07:58, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
@Mardetanha: There are many reasons for this block. First, the mobile IP want to cause trouble. Please see wikt:ko:분류토론:한자 부수 (wikt:ko:special:diff/3965486/3965491). As you can see, first time this IP had rude attitudes. And wikt:ko:special:diff/3967600, wikt:ko:special:diff/3967601 and wikt:ko:special:diff/3967602 look like normal contribution. But please add the article titles. Then, it is slander my name "Garam" (가람). Above all things, I suspect this IP is one of some mobile IP address ranges who blocked in Korean projects (ex: #1 and w:ko:위키백과:관리자_알림판/보존문서/보존2#2017-12-03 대역 차단 알림 etc), because this IP's pattern in Korean Wiktionary is similar to the IP address ranges.

CheckUser access

User:viztor

Status:    Not done

Request for CheckUser access. Since a WikiMedia Foundation action in March, the CheckUser permission has been disabled site-wise. I'm actively working a proposal to establish an Arbitration Committee on zh-wiki, hoping its formation will prevent certain admins with different political beliefs will not enter a ban/unban war, and after relevant policy is enacted by the community, the foundation will lift such ban. While during such period, there is a need for someone from the community to have CheckUser permission, until the ban has been lifted. I joined Wikipedia around 2010 and has been active on Chinese Wiki, recent work involves translation of articles and reorganization categorization, and I hope to contribute to the community in more ways.

Courcelles 02:00, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Not done. The user has clearly made the required 10 log actions as required by policy; ""Inactivity" is normally defined as fewer than 10 logged actions in the past six months". If the policy doesn't make sense (which it doesn't) then please participate in the discussion to clarify it. – Ajraddatz (talk) 15:48, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Discussion there has shown that the removal needs to be done in accordance with the policy. So please proceed. --MF-W 10:22, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
Note that I have no concerns with removal. My initial concern was that the Meta policy was not being correctly implemented, and that concern has been resolved through discussion. I would remove the permissions myself, but fear that might be considered a "conflict of interest" according to another one of our nonsensical policies. – Ajraddatz (talk) 17:22, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
Regarding Meta actions, probably most, if not all stewards, are affected. So since someone needs to do it, it should e.g. be you rather than me, since I am also a Meta bureaucrat. --MF-W 14:08, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

  • The removal policy for Oversight is Any user account with Oversight access that is inactive for more than a year will have their Oversight access removed so that doesn't apply. I would expect upon the conclusion of Courcelles re-RfA (assuming it to be successful) that the Oversight permission would be restored. I don't hold out a great deal of hope that this would be the case, but I'll happily endorse a re-RfOS request too should one be forthcoming, and then I'll work on dismantling the entire bureaucratic clusterfuck that Meta has become.

Yes check.svg Done --Alaa :)..! 08:38, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
Please revert this action. Danny B. has made 10 log actions in September 2018 which meets the policy requirement on Meta:Administrators of ""Inactivity" is normally defined as fewer than 10 logged actions in the past six months". If the policy doesn't make sense (which it doesn't) then let's discuss changing the policy rather than removing people in silly situations. – Ajraddatz (talk) 15:50, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: Doesn't that policy also include an explicit removal for "Users who have made fewer than ten edits in the six months immediately before the removal date (April 1 or October 1) are desysopped without notice."? I see there is a discussion about possibly updating the policy open at Meta_talk:Administrators and personally I think that line should say "ten edits or logged actions" but is this page the right forum for this discussion? — xaosflux Talk 18:04, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Plushy@pl.wikipedia

Due to our policy, I hereby request removal of administrator access due to lack of edits in the main namespace during a 1 year period. Openbk (talk) 22:34, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

What about the deletions on 1 Jan and 17 Feb? It seems to me that the policy also requires a lack of log actions? Also, was he notified as described there? --MF-W 10:25, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
According to our policy, the permissions are removed if there is a lack of log actions OR a lack of edits in the main namespace. This case and that are the same. The user has been notified on his user talk page and via e-mail. Openbk (talk) 21:28, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
I confirm what Openbk wrote above. To keep their rights, plwiki admins have to have both at least one logged admin action and at least one edit in the main namespace in the last 365 days, which unfortunately isn't the case here – so Plushy should have his rights removed.

Temporary permissions (expired and rejected requests only)

Ruhubelent@tk.wikipedia.org

I ran for TKWIKI administratorship on the 23rd of July. A week ago. No objection raised. I want to establish rule of law on Turkmen Wikipedia and am currently translating Wiki guidelines and policies as we do not have anybody to form ours. We have almost no one to vote. Turkmen Wikipedia has too many flaws, please grant me administratorship so that I can establish a system there. Why should you grant it? 1) I will administrate the site according to the policies, worst system is better than no system. If we establish a system, people may be encouraged to participate in Turkmen wiki. Lack of system maybe discouraging. 2) I intend to use social media to ask for help and participation for certian important topics. 3) I am creating and locating needed templates which may encourage participation. 4) There are too many unencyclopedic article on Turkmen wiki, if you can check my contribution that include the {{delete}} template, you will see I have requested too many delete requests on the last week itself. Turkmen wikipedia has so many such pages and our admin is busy. I will eradicate this problem. Thank you in advance. Ruhubelent (talk) 21:43, 30 July 2018 (UTC)
