Incubator:Administrators' noticeboard

This is the page to request attention from test administrators, administrators and bureaucrats. Note what they can do.

Administrators can:

  • protect and unprotect pages
  • delete and undelete pages
  • delete images and other uploaded files
  • block and unblock users
  • edit the interface and other protected pages

Test administrators can do the same (expect protecting and unprotecting pages), but only within their tests (therefore they cannot edit the interface).

Bureaucrats can do all the above, as well as:

  • grant administrator/bureaucrat status
  • rename users
  • grant/revoke bot flags

Note: Only Stewards may remove adminship or bureaucratship. If you want this to be done go to Requests for permissions at the Meta-Wiki.

If there is no response, you may wish to try the IRC channel, #wikimedia-incubator.

  • For deletion requests, use I:RFD for test deletions and {{delete}} for speedy deletions.
  • For user rights (admins, test-admins, bots, ...) or renamings, see I:A.

Creating a previously deleted test[edit]

Hello. Is it possible to create a new Wp test of a language that was created by another user and has previously been deleted? (In this case, Etruscan). Or can it only be created in the Incubator Plus? I see that it was deleted because it had no meaningful content, but shouldn't it have another chance to be in a Wikipedia test again? Best regards, and thank you in advance. --FirePolyglot (talk) 02:11, 16 February 2019 (UTC)FirePolyglot

If it had no meaningful content, there is no reason why it can't be recreated. --MF-W {a, b} 21:44, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
It can be recreated if you wish, and I will edit the info page accordingly. Keep in mind, though, that most projects in historical languages stay in Incubator indefinitely, as historical languages are generally outside of the current guidelines for allowed independent projects.

XML Dump[edit]

Would it be possible to get the XML dump and the link files for scientific purposes? — The preceding unsigned comment was added by 141.2.108.253 (discussioncontribs) 16:42, 20 February 2019 (UTC).

Would you mind elaborating? StevenJ81 (talk) 14:53, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

Incubator wikis are missing[edit]

Dear all in this list Special:SiteMatrix some incubator wikis are missing, can any body look into this, thanks --RAChitrali 05:52, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
@Rachitrali: Incubator wikis do not show up here. The site matrix only shows independent projects.
For other problems in the site matrix, the place to bring this up is probably m:Wikimedia Forum. Nearly always, problems on pages in the "Special" namespace come from either (1) a problem in the MediaWiki software causing the page to render incorrectly, and/or (2) a problem in the databases that the special pages are calling information from.

Two requests[edit]

I would like to point out two issues that needs attention from the admins.

Firstly, Please change the content model of the page Wp/khw/Module:Yesno from Wikitext to Scribunto.
Secondly, please check the page [Community Portal] and check if you can suggest an alternative solution.Adithyak1997 (talk) 17:25, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
User:Adithyak1997: Wouldn't the first page need to be moved to Module:Wp/khw/Yesno in order to function? --MF-W {a, b} 14:07, 22 March 2019 (UTC) - I see it already exists, so can we just delete the first one? --MF-W {a, b} 14:07, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg: I am sorry. I didn't see that page. So I think the page Wp/khw/Module:Yesno needs to be deleted. I cannot perform that deletion.Adithyak1997 (talk) 14:46, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
Done. --MF-W {a, b} 14:48, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
What about the second issue?Adithyak1997 (talk) 14:50, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
I have answered there. --MF-W {a, b} 17:28, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
