Incubator:Administrators' noticeboard

From Wikimedia Incubator
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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.

Block request[edit]

Please block User:BrianArroyo35 indef: Spambot-created pattern account, see Special:AbuseLog/14858. --Achim55 (talk) 20:53, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

As long as the abuse filter caught the user, I'd prefer not to put a block. I will watch, though. StevenJ81 (talk) 22:44, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

I would like to request for the following pages to be moved to MediaWiki namespace and change page content model to "CSS". Thanks again.

Yes check.svg Done Sorry for the delay; I've been busy IRL. FWIW, I assumed that in the first case, you really wanted the page content model to be "JavaScript", and acted accordingly. StevenJ81 (talk) 19:28, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

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)
