Wikimedia:Requests for permissions

From Outreach Wiki

Use this page to request to be a translation administrator, administrator, or a bureaucrat. All requests should be made below, instead of at the Village pump, which has traditionally served as the rights request page, in addition to user talk pages.

Note: Staff of the Wikimedia Foundation are exempt from this page, as their work automatically qualifies them for the role of Administrator on this site.

Requirements for administrators[edit]

As of 3 August 2017, the following are minimum qualifications for users who wish to become administrators on the Outreach Wiki. Note that the "administrator" flag is different from the "translation administrator" flag, and this change only affects the "administrator" flag.

  • 10,000 global edits under all registered accounts
  • At least 1 year as a registered user under the account which the requester proposes to use for admin activity on Outreach
  • No more than 1 active block across all Wikimedia projects on all of the user's accounts
  • The account which the user proposes for administrator activity on Outreach already has administrator permissions on at least one other Wikimedia wiki, with
  • at least 3,000 edits on that wiki
  • at least 1 year as an administrator on that wiki
  • at least 300 logged admin actions on that wiki
  • no blocks (other than self-requested blocks) within the past 5 years on that wiki. (The account doesn't need to be 5 years old.)

Requests for permissions[edit]

Your request might be rejected if you don't follow the instructions, and not doing so would reflect poorly on your suitability.
Please also review the appropriate policy for your requested user right.
Instructions for making a request

Before requesting, make sure that:

  1. You have sufficient activity to meet the requirements to be allocated the user right that you are asking
To make a request
Copy the template below to the bottom of this section and explain of why you need the access and why you're suitable.
=== [INSERT RIGHT HERE] rights request for [[User:Foo|Foo]] ===
 |status    = <!-- don't change this line -->\
 |user name = Username

The request will be approved if consensus to do so exists after a period of consideration of no less than 3 days (no exceptions are allowed no matter how obvious the result may seem). This is not a vote, and all input is welcome. Bureaucrats will determine whether consensus exists; when doing so it is likely that the weight given to the input of those involved in other project work will be most influential.

Administrator rights request for xaosflux[edit]

Hello, I'm a new P&E dashboard admin. Requesting admin access here for any useful maintenance I may come across. Running the checklist from above:

  • 60000+ global edits
  • 10+ year registered account
    • 0 active blocks globally
  • Current sysop on: enwiki, (also at metawiki)
Thank you for your consideration, Xaosflux (talk) 22:37, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
  • I've interacted with Xaosflux a few times for several years and even when we've been on opposite sides of a discussion, I've always known him to be a reliable and trustworthy editor. In principle, support but User:Xaosflux, can you tell me more about what you want to accomplish on this wiki in particular? Your editing history here is very liteweight. Koavf (talk) 23:13, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
    Hi @Koavf: really just technical maintenance as needed (such as cleaning up Special:LintErrors, mopping up obvious items in Category:Deleteme, fixing broken translation pages). I don't envision using block unless there were some blatantly obvious vandals. In working with the outreach dashboard group, there has been some initial discussion to move the integration away from the English Wikipedia (and here or metawiki are the obvious choices) for account generation - so I can expect some testing may be coming in that area. Additionally, I'm fairly experienced with edit filters, so may be able to make some improvements there as well. I understand if this is a "too soon" situation. Xaosflux (talk) 23:39, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
    Thanks, User:Xaosflux. I personally don't mind, as (again), I know and trust you. You've been on WMF projects for a long time and are an asset globally, so it's not a problem as far as I'm concerned. For some context, it used to be that advanced user rites were given out here like candy on Hallowe'en (even unsolicited!) and the community decided to impose some basic guidelines and best practices a few years ago. Asking the question is more-or-less perfunctory for me but others may be concerned or at least interested in what you have in mind. I think you're a totally trustworthy editor but as one of only three active bureaucrats here, it seems like a question the community should have answered. Thanks.

+1 trusted user with long history of responsible tool usage. Quiddity (talk) 04:11, 8 February 2019 (UTC)
  • No oppose for more than two weeks, sysop access granted. --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:20, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

Administrator rights request for Mohammed Galib Hasan[edit]

Hello, I am already translation admin in Outreach wiki. Requesting admin access here for doing some technical maintenance over edits. Here i have the following details:

  • 10000+ global edits overall.
  • 3+ year registered account.
  • No Block at any wiki.

Why needed: As i mainly work with Education Projects like in newsletter,Bookshelf,Resources sometimes technical maintenance needed like cleaning up,fix the broken translation by others. So if i got this access it will help to do faster this works. Hopefully it will be considered positively. Mohammed Galib Hasan (talk) 15:35, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Sounds good to me. Koavf (talk) 17:32, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose at this time but open to future reconsideration. Hello Mohammed Galib Hasan, you appear to be a good contributor with some very helpful language skills, but at this time you appear not to meet the requirement to already have administrator permissions on one other Wikimedia wiki, and the associated requirements for administrator activity on that wiki. I will gladly reconsider your request for administrator permissions on the Outreach wiki after you meet these requirements. In the meantime, I encourage you report any issues that need the attention of an Outreach administrator to a current administrator and/or at the Outreach Village Pump. Thank you, --Pine 03:51, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Not done. Sysop access cannot be granted at this time because not all requirements are meet and there is no community consensus to overwrite those requirements. --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:24, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Translation admin rights request for DannyS712[edit]

I recently discovered this site and would like to help clean up pages for translation. I know how to use the tools and am familiar with the translate extension. I'm happy to answer any questions. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 05:03, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

  • Do you anticipate doing any actual translations? If so, what do you have in mind? Koavf (talk) 06:00, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
    @Koavf: yes, basically all of my 300+ edits here have been translations. But, my focus for the tools is cleaning up translations. Is that what you are asking? --DannyS712 (talk) 07:39, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
    There's no wrong way to answer. Thanks. Koavf (talk) 03:00, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
Hello DannyS712, can you explain what you would like the translation admin permission to do that you can't do without that permission? Some examples would be useful. I'm not an expert in the translation tool but I know that translations can be done without being a translation admin. Thanks, ↠Pine () 07:24, 15 November 2019 (UTC)
@Pine: its true, you don't need the rights to do the translations, but I want to clean up the source of the translations and then be able to remark the page for translation. Eg my edits to Case Studies education brochure won't take effect until the page is remarked by a translation admin. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 08:55, 15 November 2019 (UTC)
OK, DannyS712. Taking into account your extensive permissions on other Wikimedia sites, I will Symbol support vote.svg Support this request. ↠Pine () 20:30, 15 November 2019 (UTC)
@Koavf: can you take a look? Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 06:24, 19 November 2019 (UTC)
@DannyS712: ? Koavf (talk) 10:41, 19 November 2019 (UTC)
I mean as a bureaucrat - its been more than 3 days. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 17:12, 19 November 2019 (UTC)
Oh, you mean pass this request? I'd prefer to let it run a little longer as there is not a strong consensus here. Koavf (talk) 18:46, 19 November 2019 (UTC)
Its been another week... --DannyS712 (talk) 01:32, 27 November 2019 (UTC)

YesY Done No objections and not a very controversial or dangerous request. Koavf (talk) 03:11, 27 November 2019 (UTC)
