Incubator:Administrators' noticeboard

From Wikimedia Incubator

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
  • use the built-in rollback functionality

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

  • Exception: As rollback is only appropriate to use in cases of vandalism, test-administrators can use that feature anywhere they see vandalism.

Bureaucrats can do all the above, as well as:

  • grant administrator/bureaucrat status
  • grant/revoke test-administrator status
  • grant/revoke bot flags
  • rename users [now mostly obsolete in favor of global accounts and unified login]

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.

User:Sebutei is actively proposing deletions of articles at Rejang Wikipedia providing "No meaningful content or history" as their reason. Could someone review it? Thanks. David Wadie Fisher-Freberg (talk) 16:28, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

I already asked him on his talk page 2 weeks ago but received no answer. I will ask again. --MF-W {a, b} 16:33, 30 December 2020 (UTC)
Also, I reverted the requests. --MF-W {a, b} 16:35, 30 December 2020 (UTC)
Thank you. I am not sure they are acting in good faith. Seems to be another Relly Komaruzaman (already globally locked) sock. dwf² (talk) 16:36, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

Mass moving requests in Wt/ba[edit source]

So many entries in Wt/ba with initial letter "a" using a wrong Cyrillic one "а" and need to be moved to their correct names. The whole list can be seen in Special:PrefixIndex/Wt/ba/ from Wt/ba/аfet to Wt/ba/аşılama, and please also delete the redirects of them.--Sayonzei (talk) 04:46, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

Oh, it's actually been a while this request was posted. Thanks for your concern, @User:Sayonzei. --Comp1089 (talk) 23:29, 13 February 2021 (UTC)
@Sayonzei: Yes check.svg Done. Sorry if it took too long. --Comp1089 (talk) 11:14, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

I report the vandalism of the user AntoniusWiki[edit source]

Yesterday the wiktionary in lombard (ISO 639-3 : lmo) was vandalized by the user AntoniusWiki. Luckily the changes have been reverted. Anyway looking at his contributions (https://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/AntoniusWiki) it seems that the account has just been created in order to vandalize.--Gat lombart (talk) 22:29, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

Blocked. --Sotiale (talk) 03:14, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Edit mediaWiki common.css[edit source]

Hi, I would like to kindly ask an admin to fill MediaWiki:Wp/rmc/Common.css with the content of User:Adehertogh/vector.css.--Adehertogh (talk) 12:45, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

Done. --MF-W {a, b} 18:41, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

Vandalism in Middle English Wikipedia[edit source]

Hello, there’s an anonymous user 75.52.94.231 vandalizing Middle English Wikipedia. -Gifnk dlm 2020 (talk) 21:21, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

Seems like he already stopped. --MF-W {a, b} 02:13, 6 March 2021 (UTC)

Creation request for MediaWiki pages in Swedish[edit source]

Details on the I:TP talkpage by Sabelöga (diff). - Xbspiro (talk) 04:45, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done --Comp1089 (talk) 14:41, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Template rename[edit source]

Hi, could you please rename "user:Joseph/Template:Localisedwikiname" to "Template:Localisedwikiname" or something shorter? I want to use it on Incubator:Featured wikis as {{Localisedwikiname|Wp|mnc}}, so that the localized versions (if translated in UniversalLanguageSelector, else English is shown.) will be shown instead English ones. Thanks.--Joseph (talk) 21:28, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Hello. Is the reason you request page move because something is blocking the move function? --Sotiale (talk) 11:46, 5 April 2021 (UTC)

@Sotiale: the new pagename is unprefixed. That may be the reason. --Comp1089 (talk) 08:40, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

Hi, I want to use for localisation at main page. Currently, main page is translated except Incubating news and current events. This template will show "만주어 위키백과" instead of "Manchu Wikipedia" for Korean interface. Code is copied from Template:Test wiki/core. And yes, I cannot create unprefixed templates.--Joseph (talk) 06:57, 8 April 2021 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done @Joseph: I also thought of specifying the template as a translation, but I think your template is more versatile than that. --Sotiale (talk) 12:39, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Does this template work at all?

(both linking to the info pages). --MF-W {a, b} 18:51, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Oh. It needs to be modified so that the template can recognize lowercase letters as well. {{localisedwikiname|wq|de}} is German Wikiquote, but {{localisedwikiname|Wq|de}} is German Wikiquote :( --Sotiale (talk) 02:10, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

@Sotiale:: in the first case you shouldn't have added "Tetum Wikipedia" as the last parameter. As for lowercase variants, I've just Yes check.svg added them. --Comp1089 (talk) 09:25, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

@Comp1089: Thanks! And where did I use Tetum Wikipedia as a parameter? --Sotiale (talk) 09:55, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

Oh, it's not you, it's @MF-Warburg:, my bad. --Comp1089 (talk) 10:22, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

So what does "Default Language Name" mean in the example in the documentation? --MF-W {a, b} 16:18, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
I'm also not sure what the name of that parameter meant.. Looking at the template, it seems that it can be used in this way: mfw Wikipedia({{localisedwikiname|wp|mfw}}) / MF-W Wikipedia({{localisedwikiname|wp|mfw|MF-W}}). Yes, obviously mfw is not an ISO allocation code :p --Sotiale (talk) 12:17, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

StevenJ81 and their bot[edit source]

If our admin policy said right, administrators are removed their rights if they have neither edits nor log actions for a year, per Special:Contributions/StevenJ81 and Special:Log/StevenJ81, both are ended at 18 Dec 2019, which is 15 months past, any ideas? See also Special:Contributions/StevenJ81bot and Special:Log/StevenJ81bot --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 00:35, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

Now removed. --MF-W {a, b} 16:05, 8 April 2021 (UTC)

SPQRobin and their bot[edit source]

Like above, Special:Contributions/SPQRobin ended at 2018, Special:Log/SPQRobin at 2016, and both Special:Log/SPQRobot and Special:Contributions/SPQRobot 2012. Remove or not? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 00:38, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

Now removed. --MF-W {a, b} 16:05, 8 April 2021 (UTC)

Request block for sockpuppet user[edit source]

Adding irrelevant and sexual images at Wp/ryu/ジャニーズ事務所(en:Johnny & Associates). It may be a sockpuppet of User:Mintou89a (globally locked), who did same vandalism at same page before. Please block it indefinitely. (Is the reporting vandalism page here? If not, please guide.) --Y-route (talk) 06:00, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Blocked. --Sotiale (talk) 12:06, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
Thank you. --Y-route (talk) 13:24, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

Special:Contributions/W0I4K1I8W1[edit source]

Can someone please take a look at Special:Contributions/W0I4K1I8W1? It looks like nonsense to me, but I could be wrong - is "wp" a valid language code, and is the content being added correct in that language? --DannyS712 (talk) 01:11, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

It's a joke from a friend traveling on xwiki. Everything is gone, thank you for reporting. --Sotiale (talk) 01:47, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
