Wikimedia:Requests for permissions

From Outreach Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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]

Symbol comment vote.svg Please be sure to follow the instructions below:
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.

@Tanbirzx: You don't meet the criteria above. Do you have a really compelling reason why we should give you these user rights? Koavf (talk) 19:15, 2 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Koavf: i have already said the main reason. I translated some page from English to Bangla and Urdu. If you will give me this right then i can mark some page for translation. Thank you. Tanbirzx (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 23:01, 2 May 2021‎ (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sure but why can't you meet the required criteria first? Koavf (talk) 05:56, 4 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Koavf: sorry sir it was my mistake. I have read the page [translation admin] — Preceding unsigned comment added 06:20, 4 May 2021 (UTC) by Tanbirzx (talk)Reply[reply]
I don't mind you having the rights but these were decided by the community, so I can't overrule them unilaterally. Koavf (talk) 03:35, 6 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Tanbirzx: do you have experience preparing pages for translation, etc? If all you are doing is translating, you don't need the rights - of your 38 edits to this wiki, I count 10 related to this permission request and it doesn't look like you have been active much on this wiki in general --DannyS712 (talk) 08:41, 8 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@DannyS712: Yes i have some experience in preparation pages for translation. Yes you are right that i have not much contribution in this wiki. I couldn't find some proper page for translate, so that this is not my fault. If the community give me this rights then i will be able to translate pages and support on the translation field more effectively. I think there will no problems to giving me this rights and i promise that i will not misuse it.Thank you --Tanbirzx — Preceding undated comment added 14:39, 8 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Koavf: Hello sir. Am i not entitled to this right? --

@Koavf: User is clearly unfamiliar with the translation extension, marked huge chunks of markup for translation when it is still in a mess. Minorax (talk) 01:24, 23 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Tanbirzx: How do you respond to the above? Koavf (talk) 05:29, 23 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Translation admin rights request for Minorax[edit]

Requesting translation admin rights to mark pages for translation after cleaning up, or other maintenance works. I have related experience on other wikis. --Minorax (talk) 12:45, 29 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Koavf: can you take a look at this? --Minorax (talk) 07:51, 2 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Done. Thanks. Koavf (talk) 15:46, 2 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

translation admin rights request for Ameisenigel[edit]

Hello, I would like to request translation admin rights to be able to mark pages from the backlog for translation (some pages on Special:PageTranslation are awaiting to be marked since October) and to be able to mark them for translation again after some maintenance (like adding Special:MyLanguage to links for a better localisation). I already have these rights on some other projects, so I know how to use the rights. Best regards, --Ameisenigel (talk) 15:49, 5 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

YesY Done Trusted user who meets all criteria above and is already doing translation work. Danke, meine Freund. Koavf (talk) 16:24, 5 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
