You have a global IP block exemption, পরস, so that should work for the English Wikipedia. What errors are you getting when you try to edit there? --TheSandDoctor Talk 15:57, 16 May 2020 (UTC)Reply

Request for longer-term interface adminship[edit]

Hi ~riley!

We have an ongoing discussion at v:Wikiversity:Candidates for Custodianship/DannyS712 (interface administrator) that seems to be stalled regarding granting v:user:DannyS712 longer term interface administration. Of our four bureaucrats only two seem to be interested in the situation who can grant this approval.

I am not familiar enough with users at meta who contribute to Wikiversity to ask for them to comment on this request and it appears our generally active community either isn't large enough or perhaps isn't interested enough.

If you know those here at meta that might be willing to comment or perhaps mentor DannyS712 or help out with this, could you ask them to have a look or let me know and I can ask them?

Thanks in advance for your kind consideration of this request. --Marshallsumter (talk) 23:53, 17 May 2020 (UTC)Reply

The reality is that no intervention from myself or another member of the Meta community will have an impact on this request. This comes down to community culture and the involved 'crats have already spoken. Their community does not appoint long term interface admins; there is just no precedence. While I think they are failing to recognize Danny's worth, he should have recognized this lack of precedence and provided more of a case for long term permissions. While I think no use case should need to be presented considering many wikis hand out interface admin like it's candy to their regular admins, this isn't the standard on that wiki. Trust me, I did spend time considering this. I wrote out a full paragraph for that request and nearly posted it but I do not think an outsider can help this situation. Danny should accept the limited offer that has been provided by the 'crats, hit them with half a dozen requests over the period of one to three months, and then revisit the conversation once the 'crats have realized how counterproductive their process is. I laughed when I read that they suggested using a global interface admin. Danny is 10x smarter than I am, and I am more likely to break things inserting his code because he is the one familiar with it, not me. It also means that if his code doesn't work, or I make a mistake, there will be a delay in it being fixed. Using global interface admins as an expendable resource when a qualified competent admin is offering their services is inappropriate. ~riley (talk) 11:36, 18 May 2020 (UTC)Reply
