Mayur@hiwikiquote

Hi, I am mayur a bureaucrat and sysop of hindi wikipedia,I have contributed hindi wikipedia a lot, Now i want to contribute to other hindi wikimedia projects.For smooth activity and ease of access i need sysop flag on these projects so that i may install some gadgets and hindi transliteration tool on these projects.In Absense of transliteration tool no one can contribute to these projects.I hope like hi wikipedia i will make these projects useful for readers.Thank you and Reagards--Mayur 07:10, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Hello, could you please give us a link to an approval from local community? --Mercy 08:36, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
As per RC there is no active users on wikiquote, there is no village pump for this project, also there is no page for adminship right request--Mayur 10:10, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
I think you can create one, or submit a request on the community portal page (as I see that page also used for bot request). It's very important to make a local request, even for temporary acces. I don't even see your user page there. Not good for an admin. — Tanvir • 10:42, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
I don't quite understand why someone without any edits on a wiki would require admin in it. Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 10:46, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
Question Question: (@Mayur) Are you asking a temp adminship or permanent? — Tanvir • 11:10, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
@Pmlineditor, As i said there is no transliteration tool available in these projects,after being as admin i will have to install it first then i would able to contribute:))
@Tanvir, if i would be a steward i prefer temperory access to a user having good admin capability, after that period if i find him imrpoving and contributing the project a lot, i will prefer to extend his temperory adminship into permanent adminship in case of projects having no active user.--Mayur 13:52, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
BTW, i have applied for sysop access on comunity portal page--Mayur 13:59, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

BarkingFish@tpi.wp

Per my previous request here I am reapplying to get Admin status. Since we're still a very small community, local RFA is still not possible, and I would like to request a grant on this basis for 1 year. During this time, should our community grow to a usable size, I will instigate a local RFA and submit for this temporary right to be removed during the process. Vandalism is on the decrease, so this is purely for maintenance and running of the day to day stuff. BarkingFish 23:16, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Renewed until 01 February 2012. —Pathoschild 01:23:17, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Kurniasan@bugwiki

I sysop access to the wiki to clear the translated MediaWiki messages. The Wikipedia so far has no community thus a voting can't be done. I am currently also a sysop on ms:Malay Wikipedia. Thanks in advance. --Kurniasan 13:26, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Has the community being informed & agreed with that cleanup? Even in a small community a local announcement in the local village pump must be done. Also, if it is about MediaWiki messages I think we can ask MediaWikiDefault to make the cleanup. -- Dferg ☎ talk 18:20, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply. I've done the announcement at it's village pump bug:Wikipedia:Warung_Kopi. Besides cleaning the MediaWiki, I also need to edit the wiki's javascript and CSS so that some templates can work properly. --Kurniasan 20:07, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
Another thing, the javascript in the Wiki's Monobook.js is not updated after the interface change. There's a translteration script that change every input from user to Buginese script and there's no option to change it to roman for monobook users (since it's not compatible with the new interface, in the edit page). I need to fix that or change it to a gadget.--Kurniasan 10:39, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Bhawani Gautam Rhk@newiktionary

Sir, I want to install transliteration tools and repair this ne.wiktionary as you see the condition, there is no transliteration system, no one can type phonetic Devanagari to edit or add new articles, If it is not corrected no one will edit or add new articles in future also. I am a sysop on ne.wikipedia and have experience in doing that. I need a sysop flag (either normal or temporary for one year) on this project. I am requesting here as there is no active user to support me on that project. Thanks - Bhawani 16:00, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

I believe you need to file a request locally before a steward can give you sysop. Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 16:36, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Please grant me bureaucrat access as per local vote. Thanks in advance, best regards. Marco 27 (msg) on it.wiki: user pagetalk page 16:44, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done locally :)--Nick1915 - all you want 20:03, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, Nick! I thought bureaucrat rights couldn't be granted locally. But I got wrong! :) --Marco 27 (msg) on it.wiki: user pagetalk page 21:14, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

CheckUser access

Steward requests/Permissions/CU-header

Oversight access

To request to have content oversighted, ask in #wikimedia-stewards, or email oversight-l(at)lists.wikimedia.org for requests regarding English Wikipedia. This is the place to request Oversight access. Note that temporary Oversight access is not permitted and the temporary status is only used by Stewards.

Stewards
Do not grant Oversight access unless the user is identified to the foundation, which will be announced on the Identification noticeboard. When you give someone oversight access, list them on Oversight.

Keegan@en.wikipedia

Thank you. Risker 23:50, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Removal of access

<translate>

  • If you're requesting the removal of your own permissions, make sure you're logged in to your account. If you have multiple flags, specify which you want removed. Stewards may delay your request a short time to ensure you have time to rethink your request (see [[<tvar|self-discussion>Talk:Steward_requests/Permissions/2011#Self_requests</>|previous discussion]] on 24 hour delays); the rights will not be restored by stewards once they are removed.
  • To request the removal of another user's permissions, you must gain consensus on the local wiki first. When there is community consensus that the user's access should be removed, a trusted user from that wiki should provide a link here to the discussion, a brief explanation of the reason for the request, and summarize the results of discussion. However, as bureaucrats of some wikis may remove users from the administrator or bureaucrat group, please see also a [[<tvar|crat-rem>Bureaucrat#Removing_access</>|separate list of these specific wikis]].
  • See the [[<tvar|usage>#Using this page</>|instructions above]] for adding new requests. Please post new requests at the bottom of the section.</translate>

Adler.fa@fawiki

Please remove my Sysop, Oversight and Checkuser accesses. Please note that according to oversight and check user policy, the access of the other Oversighter, User:ظهیری and the other user checker, User:Huji, should be suspended too, until second users for both two accesses are elected in the local wiki (I don't take any responsibility of those two actions from now on.). I'm so sorry that I have to leave wikimedia projects and I wish you all the bests. 16:58, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

I'm also sorry that you're leaving the projects Huji 17:31, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Stewards: Please wait for further notice until proceding the request. --თოგო (D) 17:33, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Thank you Thogo. A discussion is undergoing on the local admin mailing list. I personally hope Adler.fa changes his decision. However, I just want to clarify that he has the right to decide not to delay this action. In that case, no matter how much I want him not to leave the project, I wouldn't delay completing his request if I was a Steward Huji 21:33, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
According to Laaknor, the request is on hold until two days Mjbmr Talk 21:49, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
Yes. It's a bit of a trouble for the project as it will leave the project without local CU and OS, so we must make sure that there is no other possibility. --თოგო (D) 22:02, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

L.V.@vecwiki

As per his own request, please remove sysop rights to L.V.. Thanks, --Marco 27 (msg) on it.wiki: user pagetalk page 13:41, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Done. LeinaD (t) 13:44, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Abd@enwikiversity

A [6] community vote has determined that he is to be removed. User is a temporary Custodian appointed against community consensus. After a period of abusing ops and bullying, he was put up to be desysopped. His mentor has not responded to any of the concerns from the community so the community deemed it necessary to intervene. 7 blatant supports to desysop (6 in main section, 1 in bottom section - Bduke), 1 says the original giving of ops was "strange", and no opposition. Discussion posted in many places, multiple people were asked to comment, but the low activity of the community makes it certain that all who would respond have responded. Ottava Rima (talk) 00:01, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

please wait at least 2 weeks for a complete community response. Thank you.--Nick1915 - all you want 16:07, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks, Nick1915. Wikiversity has policy on this, see Problems with Custodians; the process requires a 'crat close and request here. There are active 'crats, Jtneill and SB Johnny, both of whom have my permission to request desysop immediately if they think it necessary. The process is not broken. --Abd 16:32, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
thank you Abd, so this request is closed due to local policy. Thanks--Nick1915 - all you want 17:05, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
That policy is for full Custodians, not temporary Custodians. This shows that Stewards were willing to desysop after 3 days when the whole process was called into question via unanimous vote. Putting up a double standard is not the place of Stewards, especially when it is unanimous among a community. Seeing as how confirmation is around the corner, this is an egregious abuse of authority Nick1915, especially when Drini made it clear that filing on Friday was enough time to pass. Ottava Rima (talk) 21:43, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
There is no double-standard. The previous request you point to was filed by a local bureaucrat, as described by the local policy. If you feel that local community policy or bureaucrats are unfair, you should attempt to resolve those issues locally. —Pathoschild 22:49:06, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
No. Reread. The procedure says: 1. "you must gain consensus on the local wiki first." which was not followed for the previous one and 2. "a trusted person" not a "Bureaucrat". If you are wanting to continue as a Steward you must follow Steward procedures instead of making up your own. Ottava Rima (talk) 22:51, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
The en-Wikiversity de-custodianship policy states as follows: "Loss of custodianship involves a process that establishes community consensus. [...] Wikiversity bureaucrats will review the discussion. If a bureaucrat decides that there is good reason for removal of a custodianship, that bureaucrat will go to the meta-wiki and request that stewards review the community discussion. If a steward agrees that the Wikiversity community has reached consensus about a problem custodian, then that steward can terminate the custodianship of the custodian."
This policy explicitly places responsibility for such decisions in the hands of the local community bureaucrats. Please ask the local bureaucrats to review the discussion, as required by the policy. If you feel this is unfair or insufficient, you may propose changes to the policy. —Pathoschild 23:27:10, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
He is not a Custodian. He is a Probationary custodian. That was explained multiple times above. He was not voted in by the community, which that recall proceedings assume. Furthermore, as multiple Stewards have pointed out, stewards cannot "agree that the Wikiversity community has reached consensus". They can only see if someone trusted from the community posts that there is consensus, which the unanimous decision so far shows. Ottava Rima (talk) 23:38, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
I've closed this request following the local policy literally, not misusing any position/power.This is the only policy about custodian I've seen, and it's pretty clear, so, in the first instance, I cannot decide if community consensus is reached or not, but a local 'crat should review and make a request here. Ottava Rima, as I see, is not a local 'crat and the voting/discussion is open from less than a week and it has not been checked by any 'crat. So, yes, in this case I can point out that this request is not valid--Nick1915 - all you want 11:47, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
This is factually incorrect: "the local policy literally" He is a probationary custodian, not a Custodian. He has his own separate page. Furthermore, Meta policy does not require a local crat. Drini and othes in chat said to file it on Friday. Are you really going to contradict other Stewards while showing your inability to read the appropriate policy, ignore unanimous consensus, and do something Stewards are not allowed to do by making false claims about policies? Ottava Rima (talk) 14:28, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
Any other steward can revert my "inappropriate" action whenever. Anyway your tone is offensive here and in my talkpage. Please remember that meta is not the right place for exporting local drama or for threating people. This request is already closed, unless a wikiversity 'crat asks a removing or another steward wants to do something else. If you consider my action dishonest, please open a request here. Thanks--Nick1915 - all you want 15:49, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
A couple of users have asked for further input on the conflict on Wikiversity. From the stewards' point of view (as I see it), this is an internal conflict that should be handled by the community if at all possible. There is majority but no consensus about desysoping Abd, and the discussion is ongoing. The local proposal needs to be closed one way or another before we implement it. We will not close the proposal for you, since that's up to the community.
In typical cases a bureaucrat closes the proposal and forwards the decision to the stewards for implementation. That does not seem to be happening this time. The problem here is not that stewards are unwilling to arbitrate the conflict, but that there appears to be no local mechanism to do so. If nobody but stewards can resolve local disagreements, there are implications beyond this particular desysop request. Whether this case is decided by a bureaucrat or through another local decision-making process, you may want to think about how future disagreements will be resolved. —Pathoschild 02:40:36, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Just for the sake of FYI (and perhaps easing minds), the 'crats are quite aware of this discussion, but our policy is: "Community reviews should be closed when it is clear that there is a consensus, or when it becomes clear that a consensus will not be reached.". We don't seem to be quite there yet, and the ongoing discussion is still quite active. Thanks. --SB_Johnny talk 16:11, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
It is a unanimous decision, that is clear consensus. There has been no movement except in discussions to close for 3 days now (last vote was 07:10, 28 January 2011). Additionally, SB Johnny is making an odd claim seeing as how a previous Community Review in defiance of an unanimous motion was to stop the whole thing and start over to allow discussion. Ottava Rima (talk) 16:59, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks, Pathoschild. Your analysis is as expected from a steward. The flap at Wikiversity is caused by one seriously disgruntled user, backed up by one or two others with similar resentments, and with the small active admin core of Wikiversity, almost all are either involved or so disgusted as to stay away. However, the process at Wikiversity is not broken, it is merely turgid. I see no reason for steward involvement at this time. There are potential "cross-wiki issues," and if those become significant, steward action that is respectful of the local community could become appropriate. It isn't there yet. --Abd 13:56, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
"here is majority but no consensus about desysoping Abd" It is unanimous, not a majority. If there was even one oppose you might be able to make some tiny but outrageous claim to a lack of consensus. Ottava Rima (talk) 15:08, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Reopening this request: please remove Abd's sysop tool access per closure of discussion. I can only offer my own apologies for the silliness, but I do sincerely apologize to those who have been put in an awkward spot or two in relation to this. --SB_Johnny talk 23:55, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Done. —Pathoschild 23:59:13, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
