Wiktionary:Requests for permissions

From Wiktionary
Jump to: navigation, search

This page is used for the requesting and removal of all tools on the Simple English Wiktionary. Please place whichever tool you want to request permissions for under the appropriate headers.

Administrator tools are there to better help the community. They are not a power. They also do not make certain users better than others. Jimbo Wales, the founder of the Wikimedia Foundation, said that adminship "should be no big deal".

Requests for adminship[change]


Hi. I am Nirmos. I would like to update JavaScript here. JavaScript pages are in the MediaWiki namespace. Only admins can edit in the MediaWiki namespace.

If this is not done, things will break in November.

I have done this at other projects. You can see which projects on my user page. --Nirmos (talk) 12:17, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

  • Support. --Brett (talk) 12:32, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Support. Do you plan to stay around here and help out when you're finished, or are looking to take the flag for a temporary period. (I ask only because that's what we should tell the stewards at the end of all this.) StevenJ81 (talk) 20:36, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
Hi, StevenJ81. All projects need to be updated before November, so unfortunately I don't have time to stay around and help. When I'm done, I'll ask the Stewards on meta to remove my rights. Of course, if the community insists that I stay in case anyone might need technical help in the future, I don't mind, but I can't offer any help with the usual admin tasks like deleting or protecting pages, or blocking users. Nirmos (talk) 03:16, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
Hi back to you, Nirmos. That's fine. Just wanted to know what your plans were. We certainly appreciate the help. StevenJ81 (talk) 03:49, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

Done.--Brett (talk) 12:49, 14 June 2016 (UTC)


I would like to become an admin on Simple English Wiktionary because I meet the Criteria for adminship. I have been actively participating at Wiktionary for a while, I understand the basic policies, I have a good understanding of the formatting structure, I always learn from my mistakes and make an effort to not make them again and I get on well with the users and contributors. I also made more than 250 edits here and I understand the basic policies. I also made more than twenty entries on the main space. Pkbwcgs (talk) 21:13, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Support.--Brett (talk) 21:38, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Support. Hiàn (talk) 02:15, 9 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Meeting the criteria for adminship is only a guideline. However, looking at the contributions that you have made to this wiki, a majority of them are just simple cleanup edits and you have created less than 20 entries manually (which disregards plural forms). It's a good start to understanding our policies and formatting structure, but I can't see if you are applying your understanding correctly. Please contribute more to this wiki first before asking for adminship again. Thanks! --Hydriz (talk) 08:24, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
I'd beg to differ. While his entry creation is low, he does manage to catch pages that require deletion; obviously, manually asking each time would be tedious. Hiàn (talk) 18:43, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Although it shouldn't influence my vote here and isn't in the criteria for adminship, the fact is that you are blocked on the Simple English Wikipedia (and were previously blocked on the regular English Wikipedia). Unless you can address that somehow, I'm not sure that you are trustworthy enough. J991 15:55, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
Hydriz, thanks for your reply but in what way am I not 'understanding policies and formatting structure'? Pkbwcgs (talk) 12:30, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
J991, I don't think that block is needed anymore. Especially, when I am behaving and contributing to other Wikis better. I have made a query on my talk page for unblock but there has been no problems. Pkbwcgs (talk) 18:56, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for your comments. However, I still think another active administrator will be useful. Pkbwcgs (talk) 20:45, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

Requests for bureaucratship[change]


Now that Barras has stepped down, we are only left with just one bureaucrat. I believe I should step up and help out with handling bureaucrat tasks (of course, not like we have much of it) just in case. Though not the intended use of the permission, having the bureaucrat flag will be useful in dealing with mass deletions via the bot flag if we are to be hit by a spambot. Thanks! --Hydriz (talk) 12:43, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

  • support, a second (active) crat will be good! -Barras talk 21:27, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Support Jianhui67 talkcontribs 00:56, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Support, sure. Happens so rarely, I never remember the protocol. How long would you like me to wait? --Brett (talk) 01:07, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
    • Probably about 2 weeks or until most of the active users have given their input. :) --Hydriz (talk) 01:18, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
      • Seven days is the normal RfX time usually, at least when there are enough votes and three votes now looks quite good. I only prolonged requests when there were too few votes. -Barras talk 11:08, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Support mhm. Eurodyne (talk) 23:30, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
  • @Brett - I guess you can close this one now. :) -Barras talk 21:00, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

Closed as successful. I'll make the rights changes.--Brett (talk) 21:13, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks! --Hydriz (talk) 01:01, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

Hey I've been an active user on simple wikip and also a temporary admin at Swahili confirm here. I would use my knowledge on the wikis to transform the site. Regards. Trunzep (talk) 14:32, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

X mark.svgN Not done With only 8 edits to this wiki and very limited number of contributions across Wikimedia projects, I am declining this task. Please contribute more using the undo button first before requesting for the rollback rights again. Thanks! --Hydriz (talk) 09:32, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Requests for removal of rights[change]


Tempodivalse (talkchangese-mailblocksprotectsdeletesmoves)

Hi all! I would like to propose to remove Tempodivalse's admin and crat rights as per his inactivity for over one year. His last actions/edits on this project where in February 2014. I've informed him on his talk page right now. Keep in mind, there is no need rush this, the request can kept open for a week or two and if necessary even longer. -Barras talk 00:57, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Looking here, it seems that all usually active people voiced their opinion, so I'm going to close this now as successful request to remove the rights. The last comment here is nine days ago and I doubt we will get much more input. Tempodivalse's rights are beeing removed now. I will handle the admin bit locally and request the removal of his crat rights on meta. -Barras talk 18:29, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Crat right has been removed, see diff. -Barras talk 18:44, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

Inactive bots[change]

I propose removing the bot status of the many bots that are currently inactive. Based on the database report, they are:

Looking at the tasks that they do on Wiktionary:Bots, I can safely say that they are being handled by the more active bots, so it is safe to remove the bot flags on these bots. Its better for us too, in case they make accidental edits that are unintended, causing large scale disruption. The respective operators have been contacted on their talk pages. --Hydriz (talk) 13:02, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Support - However, I wonder if we really need to vote on that. Bot flags are usually granted per bureaucrat discretion without real need for input from outside. As such the flag should be allowed to be removed the very same way. I know I did that on other wikis already, not sure if we also use that common sense rule, which probably isn't written down here. -Barras talk 13:12, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Currently, I don't need the flag for my bot BOTijo. You can remove it. Emijrp (talk) 19:02, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

  • I now removed the flags from all listed bots as they are inactive. If any of the bots wants to run the bot again, they can just ask for the flag back. -Barras talk 19:04, 1 May 2015 (UTC)


Eurodyne (talkchangese-mailblocksprotectsdeletesmoves)

Dear Community, I regret to inform you that I would like to step down as an admin from this wiki. I currently don't have the time to contribute to simplewikt anymore, as I get busier with school and other activities. Please remove my rights. Thank you. Eurodyne (talk) 03:06, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Done -Barras talk 07:56, 28 May 2015 (UTC)


Tygrrr (talkchangese-mailblocksprotectsdeletesmoves)

Hello, Tygrrr has been inactive since July 16, 2014 and his last logged action was back in 2012. I propose removing his admin status on grounds of inactivity. Also, this request will remain open as long as deemed necessary. Thanks! --Hydriz (talk) 13:51, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

  • support removal - I've never been a fan of people holding rights they never really use. -Barras talk 22:25, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
  • support --~~Goldenburg111 14:24, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
Yes check.svgY Done I believe this is open for a lot longer than it should. --Hydriz (talk) 16:41, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
