Administrator access

Berko74@yi.wikisource

Time2wait.svg On hold Given there is very little active users, please announce the intention to gain adminship at a village pump or similar place locally at the project, wait a week and then post a link here. We'll grant temporary adminship, provided no opposes were raised. Does that answer your question, Dovi and Berko74? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 08:27, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
Thank you, and yes. They will write about their intentions and request at the local village pump. Dovi (talk) 09:56, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
@Dovi: Has the discussion happened? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 11:04, 20 March 2020 (UTC)

Closing as not done for now. Dovi, please just create a new request when you have someone willing to become an admin there and have a week long vote/discussion about it on yiwikisource. --Base (talk) 02:39, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

NGC 54@ro.wiki

Voting active for 2 weeks. Strainu (talk) 12:09, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

Done. --Sotiale (talk) 12:27, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

Interface administrator access

Joanmp14@ti.wiki

Hello, I am requesting this permission in order to improve the Wikipedia and Wiktionary interfaces but on the Tigrinya [1] wikiprojects and I want to help these projects prosper and be more recognized for their respective speakers. I have created the localized Wikipedia and Wiktionary logos for this language and would like to make them public, I also plan to create them for other Wikimedia projects in the future. There is no one active in these projects or special pages to request permissions and that is why I do it here. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Joanmp14 (talkcontribs) 15:34, 4 April 2020 (UTC)

Joanmp14 You will need to request that access on meta. --Izno (talk) 16:29, 4 April 2020 (UTC)

@Joanmp14: Has the community agreed with the promotion? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 10:02, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: Not at Steward_requests/Global_permissions, because it is very risky for me, so DeltaQuad recommended that I make the requests here since I only need it for those two wikiprojects --Joanmp14 (talk) 12:25, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
@Joanmp14: I mean, did ti.wiki's community agree with your promotion? It needs to be discussed there. Regarding logos, the correct way to change them is to request a configuration change at Phabricator, see Requesting_wiki_configuration_changes (note that also requires a discussion). Maybe some other of your use cases have a better solution as well, I can help if you want. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 10:28, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: There is no community portal or special page for request permissions on these wikis, for that reason I ask them here --Joanmp14 (talk) 12:41, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
@Joanmp14: I understand there is no process for requesting rights at that wiki. However, the promotion needs to be agreed by that wiki. Simply post a message at their Village Pump or similar page, and ask :). Also, I'd appreciate if you could explain for what you need those permissions (which changes you would like to perform). Perhaps there is some better solution instead. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 12:03, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: They also do not have a village pump, I cannot communicate with anyone because either such a page does not exist or is inactive. This is my only method of doing it. I just want to put the localized logos that I create for the Tigrinya Wikipedia[2] and Wiktionary[3] projects without asking someone because I need to test and see how it looks before going public, plus I have to make some modifications to fix some errors --Joanmp14 (talk) 16:06, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
I understand opposes aren't likely, but we cannot grant permission out of the blue. Also, note that being interface admin isn't the good way to do logo updates. Requesting a wiki configuration change is. The logo will look the same as it looks in your image editor ;). --Martin Urbanec (talk) 14:38, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: Okay, so I will create a new task. Thank you! --Joanmp14 (talk) 17:01, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

statement -jkb-

As I really do not work much there since some time and I had the same idea, but I wanted to discuss this with some other colleagues at the project; so I do not oppose the request, but I wander if it would have been that difficult to speak with me first before requesting here, what he didn't. There are users like him who dismotivate other ones. Cheers, -jkb- 13:44, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Per this request and user's response. Inactivity policy seems to be clear, and doesn't mandate notification prior rights removal. Thanks for your service, --Martin Urbanec (talk) 15:02, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
