Spiritia@bg.wikisource - 2

I was granted 4-month temporary admininship, which completed on 2 September. As i was originally voted for a permanent admin and bureaucrat, and in the meanwhile there have been no objections against my work in Bulgarian Wikisource, I would like to reapply for what I have been voted for. During the 4 months, my activities were mainly focused on:

  • Cleaning stale vandalisms (from which I could generate some, hm, useful, I think :) observations and advices for administrators of small wikis in my situation in the learning pattern Grants:Learning patterns/Cleaning the Augean stables: DIY discovery of fermented vandalisms, copyvios and other unwelcome stuff.
  • Serving requests of other Bulgarian wiki admins from other wiki projects, concerning blocking anonymous proxies, IP ranges of disruptive users.
  • Introducing gadgets and improvements in the edit mode interface and other system messages, that would make BG Wikisource closer to the user experience in BG Wikipedia, thus trying to help more WP users to feel "at home" in WS, too.
  • Proactively reaching out to WP community members to help contributing to WS (example: the author of an article on a Bulgarian PD writer, who was preparing it for a feature article in WP, was explicitly asked to improve the WS page about this author, and he immediately contributed).
  • Recruiting another WP editor to help for the translation of some of the help pages from English to Bulgarian, thus making WS a better documented project. (More than half of the job has been completed within this teamwork).
  • Initial attempts of organizing a more detailed category tree, to better correspond to the one traditionally adopted on WP.
  • During Wikimania, I took part in the discussion about Wikisource (contributing with extracts from the learning pattern above).

Hope that this list of contributions are a proof of continuing interest in maintaining the project. Current committments to Wiki Loves Earth, and workload in my offwiki job until mid October are the explanation of reduced activity in the last month, but I am still very eager to bring back life to this prospective wiki project.

Thank you in advance for the kind consideration, Spiritia 18:39, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

Sarrus@dawikibooks

Please give me the adminflag.
- Sarrus (ct) 10:05, 17 September 2016 (UTC)

The request was started in June, but people recently commented. It doesn't seem like there would be harm to giving a year long trial as the user has had admin rights in the past. MBisanz talk 01:28, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
That is true. On the other hand, of the four users who commented, only two have more than 100 edits, and one of them supports, the other one opposes. The other two users have only 1 resp. 2 edits on the wiki, namely on the RFA page. --MF-W 18:42, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
I have been administrator on dawikibooks in two periods before and in the first of these requests one user was (permanent) admin and the others were not active users. In the next request nobody made a comment, but you gave me back the adminflag. Here I have 75% support. Isn't that enough? Besides this I am in fifth term as admin on dawiktionary, plus I am permanent admin on dawiki since 2009.
- Sarrus (ct) 14:57, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
An administrator is needed on the not very active project Dawikibooks. Sarrus is well known from Dawiki. There is no other Danish-speaking relevant candidate. --Madglad (talk) 13:44, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
As I tried to explain, your support is rather 50%. --MF-W 19:30, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg: Three support and one oppose gives 75%.
- Sarrus (ct) 13:58, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
Maybe you should look more globally. The supporters are not unknown users who registered recently just to support me. They are active community members in Danish Wikipedia, where User:Sorenhk has 18.000 edits (23.000+ globally) since 2011, User:Madglad has 6.000+ edits (mostly on dawiki) since 2011, while User:Vrenak has almost 3.000 edits (mostly on dawiki) since 2007. Active contributors should not be ignored just because they are not active on that project.

Can you explain these comment removals? MBisanz talk 01:00, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
@MBisanz: yes of course I can explain, initially the user (Saad107025) - as I wrote in the summary - not allowed to vote, because this account just made 3 edits (3 attempts to vote) then disappeared, also the main reason that he wrote in Arabic that he put "oppose" because I retrieved many time his edits in this page and he wrote also that he think ar.wikiversity follows Saudi Electronic University and the permission must give to the university student just! Thanks--Alaa :)..! 14:16, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
After I talk with the user in his talk page, he withdrawal his vote (see here), and he said in Arabic: "I'm sorry I think "oppose" just a template that I can put, I don't think that it may make a problems to you". Thanks--Alaa :)..! 17:02, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
(User:Nour Alyakine Batoul) who vote "oppose", she is a sock puppetry in ar.wiki and she vote because we blocked her ident. (see Central Auth/Nour_Alyakine_Batoul). The ar.wikiversity contain many mess and it is refuge to sock puppets accounts! --Alaa :)..! 19:45, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

Benoit Rochon@atj.wikipedia

Hello. Wikipetcia Atikamekw (atj:Otitikowin) just got out from the incubator, where I was a test-admin for several months. StevenJ81 put me sysop on the new wiki (atj:User:Benoit Rochon), which is ending in 3 days. But I would like to know if I can be sysop again for another 6 months, until the new Wiki community gets organized better.
While we are there, we started a vote for new sysops on atj.wp a week ago and there are two persons that are elected: atj:User:Nehirowisiw and atj:User:Bilbo40. Is it possible to grant them at the same time? We plan that I will train them Wednesday 28th. Thank you in advance. Benoit Rochon (talk) 14:04, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
For the record, I did not do that, because I am not a steward and do not have those rights. MF-Warburg did that. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:33, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
Also for the record, User:Nehirowisiw and User:Benoit Rochon were both test-admins on the project at Incubator, so have some experience using the mop. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:40, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
You need to make a request for adminship on the wiki for yourself as well. I created separate section for the other two candidates below. --MF-W 15:38, 27 June 2017 (UTC)
Thank you MF-W. But I don't want to become permanent admin, neither I want to ask the local community to vote on my case. Only thing is that new namespaces just kicked in few hours ago, and there's a lot of cleaning that need to be done... and I only have 2 days left on the initial sysop, would it be possible to extend for at least couple weeks ? Best, Benoit Rochon (talk) 20:43, 27 June 2017 (UTC)
(stalker) @Benoit Rochon: The initial two weeks he gave you were extraordinary; that doesn't usually happen. Maybe MF-W will just give you two more weeks. But I'd encourage you to go through the process, get approbation from the community, keep the mop three months just to get the wiki off on the right foot, and then you don't need to renew the rights when they next come up. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:19, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
Hello MF-W, you can see the request for adminship here: atj:Wikipetcia:Ke nanakatisitc#Benoit Rochon. Also I created separate section for two more local candidates. Thank you. Best Benoit Rochon (talk) 13:58, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

Wintereu@rowikisource

As mentioned on the local discussion page (see link above), ro.wikisource has been subject to constant vandalisms (see recent changes page). That also includes obscenities and vandalism pages. As a long time patroller on this project, it seems that most of them are made by school kids. And for some reason or another, there some pages that were constantly vandalized. And they are always anonymous and almost never the same IPs. Anyway, there are two admins at ro.wikisource. Unfortunately, one of them is inactive for over 2 years and the other one inactive since October 2016. According to local policy, they should probably have their rights removed... But that won't solve any issue. Thanks Wintereu 00:09, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

Hello, I'm an active user of Portuguese version of Wikipedia, and I always try my best to help contribute with the Mirandese and Portuguese versions, collaborating on the articles, recommendations, templates and also in other Wikimedia projects. The tools would be very useful to help in the editions of the protected domains, in the fight against vandalism, in the pages of elimination and in other administrative activities. Unfortunately, the Mirandese version of Wikipedia has only one active administrator, in my request for adminship there is no against votes and have 1 support vote. Currently, there are few editors in the Mirandese version to judge and vote, that's why I'm request here.

After reopening nl.wikinews.org we yet had begun with the regulatory procedure, starting from June 29th at 18:00 h CEST = 16:00 h UTC.

After reopening nl.wikinews.org I was given temporary "adminship for 2 weeks to deal with stuff that comes up"[3] by MF Warburg. He added: "Please put the adminship requests voted upon by the community". At that very moment we had begun with the regulatory procedure yet, starting from June 29th at 18:00 h CEST = 16:00 h UTC. This procedure yet existed and we did follow the official procedure of 14 days. At 18:00 h CEST I (Ymnes) was elected administrator (3 support (=100%) - 0 oppose / a minimum support of 75% is requisite). Just for the record, we have rules how adminships end / can be ended. I ask you to change my temporary administratorship into a permanent one. During the same procedure, Huhbaker was elected (see here below).

Ymnes (talk) 17:49, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

So, basically you elected yourselves as administrators. Ruslik (talk) 19:53, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
To be fair:
  • The election started while the wiki was still in Incubator, but after the creation of the wiki was approved by LangCom.
Approximately half of the two-week period occurred after the wiki moved into its own subdomain.
  • The members followed the rules they set up as a community (which as far as I can tell are similar to nlwiki's rules, and stricter than the minimum required by the stewards).
  • The members worked on the wiki seriously in Incubator, and continue to work on it seriously in its own subdomain.
Given the situation, I personally would recommend a six-month starting term, which is at the longer end of usual practice for administrators in new wikis. Once the community becomes a little more established in its own subdomain, you and they can figure out what the proper term should be. But this election is certainly every bit as legitimate as any other RfA in a new subdomain. StevenJ81 (talk) ('crat on Incubator) 20:31, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
What is "a little more established"? 3 regular editors? 10 regular editors? 50 regular editors? The Banner (talk) 21:01, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
The short answer is: if it's 3 regular editors, future administrators will remain temporary. If it's 50, they may become permanent. That's why I say "once it's established, they can decide". It's up to the stewards, not me. StevenJ81 (talk) 21:29, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

I like to add: before Dutch Wikinews went to Incubator, there was an active admin team. In Incubator there was an active admin team. I can imagine when a new community is formed, adminship is temporary. However here it is an existing team that likes to continue, and does not want to be put back in time. There has been an active admin team (not just temporary), so it should be implemented here too. Romaine (talk) 15:58, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

There was an active admin team on the wiki at some time in the past: yes, possible. But irrelevant. The wiki would not have been closed if they had been active at the time of the closure. Also, there was no "active admin team" on Incubator. Wn/nl had 0 test-admins. --MF-W 19:20, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
Of course you are. Ubi societas, ibi et ius. I do not dispute that the election happened in accordance with your rules. I also do not understand why Ruslik wrote that comment to which I did not make a reference (as seen by the indentation). I gave you temporary adminship because of our (stewards') policies. --MF-W 19:20, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
But our community has composed rules for our project. Can you please re-look wether you may be held to ours? The current situation doesn't help our project, because we need to be able to appoint bureaucrats and bot bits as well. Ymnes (talk) 20:25, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
@Ymnes: This is normal procedure for a new project or a newly started project. That doesn't make a difference. And whether there are local rules or not doesn't matter either. The only thing that's been looked at is the size of the project, that means how many active users are on it. Right now the Dutch Wikinews is still in it's early days and then we always appoint temporary admins. That doesn't mean you will never become a permanent admin. Just that you need to re-apply after six months; then we will look at it again and see if the community has grown. Right now you have admin rights and can do whatever admins need to do. I'd advice you to focus on creating new articles and establishing a community. Your response that you need to be able to appoint bureaucrats and bot bits as well is nonsense. You don't need to appoint bureaucrats right now; the stewards serve as bureaucrats when a project doesn't yet have any, and they can also add bot bits when needed. The request page for that is SRB. Should you have more questions, do ask please. We're always happy to help. With regards, Trijnsteltalk 12:35, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
I don't talk nonsense when I say that we don't want to be dependent on a foreign language stewart page. People come here from all kind of projects and don't know anything about the project at all. There is activity enough and we are far better off without Meta than with Meta. A lot of instruments overhere don't work so perfectly as they are presented here. Look alone the language committee. But a remark as Ruslik made, is also very untrue, and your statement that our project is new is as well. We have restarted, not started. Yet 3 people are back from then and around 26 people have come to edit in the last 10 days (see here, 10 days because we restarted at 5 July). We are adults. Please let us decide without this English page of Wikimedia. Ymnes (talk) 12:42, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
On a foreign language stewart [sic] page - you know I'm Dutch, so if that's the problem, just approach me. Trijnsteltalk 13:33, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
Well, if you advice to write articles (and to be silent?), I really don't get your point. Being Dutch is just half of the story. Dutch Wikipedians didn't understand the project before the relaunch when it was presented to the language committee. The negativity was even sickening, and that's where we want to stay out. The project has had 12 administrators and 2 bureaucrats before. In the last days it's getting really populated again. What is your point anyway? Is it a matter of losing power of the stewards? Than it's not a fair process... This isn't a new projects here, but an existing one that restarted. We have a set of rules and are being overruled by other language stewards (you just came in). Please stop this arguing and accept that Dutch Wikinews is running again. Ymnes (talk) 14:18, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
And the necessity of more self dependence was not even expressed by me, but are written here by an experienced Wikimedian. The words are "in Dutch", what nearly no-one can read here. Other Wikinewsers do better understand, and even wrote an article on the reopening op Dutch Wikinews[4] Ymnes (talk) 16:04, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
Like I said: this is normal procedure for any new project or newly started project. It has nothing to do with you or this specific project. And I'm not even going to respond to your insinuation that the stewards might fear that they lose power. As if we're bored. Right. Trijnsteltalk 16:20, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
There are some responses here that I don't like either. And why you write 'new' twice in one sentence, where this is untrue is incomprehensible. The fact that it isn't new, is the case. Are the regulations written down or a kind of common law? It looks like no real argument counts. Ymnes (talk) 16:41, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
Speaking as a former steward who already "lost power": in the past when stewards used to hand out permanent administrative rights to very small / new wikis with little community scrutiny (few voters), quite often the newly elected admins either became inactive after a few months and were never seen again, or it turns out that they started misusing their tools. In both cases it is then hard for stewards, or really anyone, to do anything about it; in the latter scenario, that is why RFC is full of complaints about broken small Wikimedia projects. Temporary adminship gives the community a chance to reevaluate after 6 months. --Rschen7754 17:17, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
The problem of Meta is the lack of affinity with this reopened project. It was revived in the incubator in 2012, in 2016 and again from January 2017. Until the start, two users worked 6 months, one 5 months and one 2 months to revive a news project. The definition of news is that it is old after one week. They all worked in vane during this time, to really understand the eager to restart it. In the last period since the application to get it reopened, it took two full months to produce news of which was known to be old when it would be reopened. The slow mode of the Language Committee took me to motivate two users to stay because they had really had it with the whole system. Don't tell me that quitters are born in the incubator. I know that you didn't say it so cruelly, but all the replies here show a lack of affinity with this project.
Looking back of what happens here at Meta again and again, is to meet the blogging society, like Wikipedians nagging - as if they have a magic glass sphere: "´we know that this is not going to work´" (if you had known him, you would have known he is multi blocked in English and Dutch, and just ruining our appetite). Another one nagging about things that can actually be said about him. Again another one that is hardly there any more on the projects.
Than at the reopening the whole project should be refixed, and gladly after ten days another heavy editor came to help us. Since we have to do it all by ourselves, and still we make it.
Meanwhile the project was edited yet by 26 different users, our articles are being translated to other Wikinews languages and a Amsterdam programmer asked about the possibilities to use the news on organization websites he develops. Be sure, our project is sexy! You don't quit such a thing.
So is it justified that we don't want to be here anymore on Meta. We don't want this negativity around of people that don't know how well it is functioning. 6 frameworks of news, filled on a regular basis, and all kinds of issues other Wikinews editions didn't even think of to bind readers and writers. This is what it is and what has been achieved. No, this project has not been built by quitters.
So far the motivational/emotional plead. But now the rules. I can understand that you hardly see reopened projects, but this Wikinews has its own set rules and they existed when the applications begun for the adminships. Whatever jurisdiction you may have, it doesn't apply here. One can say, why does it matter to apply after six months again...: the answer is just because no-one likes to be overruled by someone that doesn't have the right. Ymnes (talk) 19:23, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
The case is closed and you are welcome back in six month with a new request. If you want to change the practice regarding small wikis and temporary status you are welcome to bring that discussion to a more suitable location. Please don't change the status on closed cases. -- Tegel (Talk) 19:31, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
On the basis of what rules do you decide? They don't exist here, do they?! Ymnes (talk) 19:47, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
Yemnes - Since you seems to be unhappy with this whole process, here is what our handbook advises on this situation "If the wiki has no community, or if it has too few active users to hold a meaningful discussion of the issue, it is probably advisable to grant temporary rather than permanent rights. Three months is a common period for temporary rights.". Here is the section you can read it from. Now, please stop pushing for it and build a good community on the project you have taken upon yourself to maintain. Please do realize that the project is still a wikimedia project and the governance and support that applies to such a project will always apply to your newly built project as well. --Jyothis (talk) 01:15, 16 July 2017 (UTC)
Apparently it's normal to give commands to others over here, but please understand that the willing are not the trolls. The behaviour over here should really change. At least you gave a link to the handbook. Thank you at least for that. Ymnes (talk) 06:48, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

I did not count two users who post numerous articles that are not eligible for wikibooks as it is their original theories and are not educational. I tried to bring attention of existing admins to this on 2 Jan 2017 nominating those articles for deletion, however, only one of four sets of pages where deleted, other 3 sets where ignored. And these users continued to fill ukwikibooks with such pages without any reaction from admins.

Iliev@bg.wikisource

Our Bulgarian community is dealing with a particularly persistent cross-project vandalism and harassment, chiefly from the PavelStaykov and Modernator-related groups, the latter operating for as long as 7 years now. The introduction of an AI anti-vandalism bot and the (semi-)automated blocking of open proxies (currently at over 300,000 individual IPs and almost 8,500 ranges) have almost completely curbed the abuse on bgwiki, but some of the vandalism then spilled to other projects, notably the BG wiktionary, quote, and source. The first two have already been taken care of, so amongst the important local projects for the Bulgarian community wikisource remains the only vulnerable one. It is going to need constant attention, so in perspective I'll be seeking a permanent adminship, but a temporary one for a start would do just as fine, knowing what's the usual procedure. I'll also be trying to cover as much as possible of the other typical sysop activities that I already take care of on bgwiki, bgwikt and bgquote.

Many thanks in advance,
