Wikiquote:Requests for adminship

(Redirected from Wikiquote:RFA)

Here you can make a request for adminship and other special user rights on English Wikiquote. See Wikiquote:Administrators for what this entails and for a list of current admins.

Instructions

Current English Wikiquote policy is to grant administrator status to anyone who has been an active Wikiquote contributor for a while and is generally a known and trusted member of the community. Most users seem to agree that the more administrators there are the better.

Administrators should register a valid email address and allow other users to send them messages in preferences, or give an email address on their user page.

If you want to become an administrator, please use the box below, filling out all the required areas and replacing "USERNAME" with your user name. Any user can comment on your request -- they might express reservations (because, for example, they suspect you will abuse your new-found powers, or if you've joined very recently), but hopefully they will approve and say lovely things about you. If this is not your first RfA, put a 2 (or whatever number RfA it may be) after "USERNAME" in the box.

Once you have saved your RfA page, add it to the Nominations for adminship section. Adminship nominations must be posted for at least one week, to provide opportunity for comments and voting, before a bureaucrat will make the promotion if warranted.

For closed votes, see #Past discussions.

Current time is 17:16:10, 29 June 2022 (UTC)


Votes of confidence

See WQ:VP#Vote of confidence

Restricted access depends on the continued support of the community. This may be tested by a vote of confidence, in which a simple majority (50%+1) must support the user's continued access for it to be retained. (What access a discussion concerns should be explicitly noted in the discussion's introduction.) Any user may propose a vote of confidence, but at least three established users must support the need for one before it can be called.

In the case of a called proposal, the user may not use the restricted access for any non-trivial action at any time until the vote is closed. A bureaucrat will eventually archive the discussion and, if so decided, request removal of restricted access by a steward.

Nominations for adminship

Note: Nominations have to be accepted by the user in question. If you nominate a user, please also leave a message on their talk page and inform them about their listing on this page, and ask them to reply here if they accept the nomination. You may nominate yourself (in which case you have automatically accepted the nomination).

Requests for checkuser

Wikiquote does not currently have local checkusers. Requests for checkuser actions can be made on the noticeboard and a steward can be notified if needed.

Requests for bureaucratship

Note: Discussions in this section should last at least 14 days.

Requests for importing right

The import function allows editors to upload specially formatted text into Wikiquote, or to transwiki such material after it is exported from another Wikimedia project. Only a Meta steward can add or drop any user's importing right. After requests are approved here, they will be reported to m:Steward requests/Permissions.

I would like Template editor user rights because I edit templates a lot and if given these rights could improve templates further. – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 19:51, 18 May 2022 (UTC)

@Ilovemydoodle: Do you have this right on other wikis? If so, how have you used it? What are examples of templates that you would modify with this right locally? —Justin (koavf)TCM 00:28, 19 May 2022 (UTC)
I don't. I near exclusively edit here, and I don't have particular articles in mind, I would the ability to request templates to be locked and still be edited. Also I would like to marked as a "Template editor." – Ilovemydoodle (talk | e-mail) 10:31, 20 May 2022 (UTC)
@Ilovemydoodle can you give an example of a template that you have a specific edit in mind for, or have made an edit request for because it was protected? Also, wanted right simply to have them ('I would like to [be] marked as a "Template editor"') is called hat collecting and generally frowned upon. You should ask for rights to use them to improve the wiki, not because they confer status or something. DannyS712 (talk) 06:27, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
Oh, also we just don't have a template editor group on this wiki, so what are you requesting? That a group be created for you? DannyS712 (talk) 06:28, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • The only thing the template editor flag does is allow you to edit through template protection. We don't have template protection enabled on this project, and so even if I could give you the flag (which I can't) it wouldn't make any difference. The only levels of protection enabled here are all users, autoconfirmed users, and admins.
The template editor flag was created/imported on large projects to give access to highly technical users, who may not otherwise have a need for the admin flag, which grants access to mostly everything, outside crat, oversight, and check user...and...some other even more esoteric permissions. A full list can be found at Meta:User groups, but most of these, like Template Editor, are not enabled on Wikiquote. GMGtalk 11:42, 21 May 2022 (UTC)

Requests for Rollback

  • Hi, I would like Rollback here to better revert vandalism, mainly using SWViewer. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 01:00, 18 June 2022 (UTC)
Ilovemydoodle  N Not Done for technical reasons. Rollback is not a right that can be given, rollback hasn't been separated from admin here yet. --Ferien (talk) 20:36, 18 June 2022 (UTC)
@Ferien: Can you request it be added? – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 20:37, 18 June 2022 (UTC)
I think it is best to have a community discussion about rollback as a whole first. I'll start one now. --Ferien (talk) 20:39, 18 June 2022 (UTC)
Thank you! – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 20:41, 18 June 2022 (UTC)
@Ferien, Koavf, UDScott, GreenMeansGo: The right has been added (T310950). – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 19:38, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
Ilovemydoodle, there is still no option for me to grant it to you. --Ferien (talk) 19:41, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
@Ferien: Why? It says that the commit was made. Also don't you need to be a Bureaucrat to grant rights? – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 19:43, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
@AKlapper (WMF): Could you provide more information on this? – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 19:52, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
Hi, not sure why I was pinged specifically? https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T310950#8026911 states that a software change is up for review in Gerrit. Once that change got reviewed and once it got merged, it can take up to a week to see a change deployed on Wikimedia servers. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 08:39, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
@AKlapper (WMF):

Hi, not sure why I was pinged specifically?

Because your the only employee I know. Also, because you deal with stuff specifically.

Also, could you review the code? – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 08:48, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
I am very sure that also non-employees know answers to questions. :) --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 09:14, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
@AKlapper (WMF): Could you review the code? – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 09:27, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
@Ilovemydoodle: No I cannot, and again I do not know why you're asking _me_ specifically, about a proposed change that is up for less than 24 hours, a change which does not look supoer urgent at all, on a weekend? Please avoid such individual pings - thanks for your understanding. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 09:57, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
Sorry. – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 10:00, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
It is not yet listed. All that admins can do is add/remove IP block exempt. Of the other user rights, rollback does not display yet. —Justin (koavf)TCM 19:46, 25 June 2022 (UTC)

I'll start one now.

@Ferien, where did you start a discussion Ottawahitech (talk) 10:50, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
@Ottawahitech: He started it here but it doesn't matter because it's already been implemented.Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 12:28, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
@UDScott: Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 12:31, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
  • It's not a crat issue. It just hasn't been added. GMGtalk 04:48, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
    @GreenMeansGo: It has!Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 04:53, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
    No, it hasn't. GMGtalk 14:36, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
    @GreenMeansGo: Why can’t you make someone a checkuser or suppressor? – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 15:05, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
    Oversight (suppression) and checkusers require at least 25 people in support on the local project, meaning many smaller project simply don't have enough active users to appoint one. Also the right is granted by Stewards. GMGtalk 18:08, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
    @GreenMeansGo: What about importer and checkuser? – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 12:23, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
    Ilovemydoodle, GreenMeansGo already gave the reason for checkuser. Importer I don't know why. --Ferien (talk) 15:23, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
    @Ferien: Now that the right has been implemented, can I have it? – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 15:32, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
@UDScott: Could you please respond to this now that it has been added? – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 21:27, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
See my reply on my talk page - I am not inclined to grant this right at this time. ~ UDScott (talk) 21:51, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
Already seen and responded. – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 21:58, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
@UDScott: Could I re-submit this request so the actual votes don't get cluttered with the original comments about the phab request? – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 01:05, 29 June 2022 (UTC)
