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
  • 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.

Abusefilters for archives[edit]

I see that you have a happy vandal stomping in your archive pages. We have a couple of filters at meta that could be migrated and adapted to your needs. Billinghurst (talk) 11:00, 16 February 2020 (UTC)

Incubator:Administrators' noticeboard/Archive/2019-[edit]

Kindly block the IP vandalising the page. Thank you. Minorax (talk) 02:03, 18 February 2020 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Protected for 2 weeks. NinjaStrikers «» 02:34, 18 February 2020 (UTC)

@Minorax: @Ninjastrikers: for checking this--RAChitrali 03:31, 18 February 2020 (UTC)

Increased protection level and duration. NinjaStrikers «» 13:51, 18 February 2020 (UTC)
Whole bunch of the same mess posted to Incubator talk:Administrators' noticeboard/Archive/2019- by the user using multiple IPs. The content is also being sent out by email, I got one from User:Tortillaparty2‬. --Yair rand (talk) 02:46, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
And I just got an alert about multiple failed login attempts from an unknown device, via Incubator. Presumably the same guy.
Somebody should probably go through the various proxies by this individual and lock them all. Some relevant IPs not yet locked include,,,,, ‎,,,,,,, Most of the others were locked by User:Bsadowski1. --Yair rand (talk) 22:15, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
that is nothing, blocking is useless, they have access to any ip they like, they can usurp wmf ip too!. 21:47, 21 February 2020 (UTC)
That's it. They got botnet access, so blocking a few IPs is useless. --Achim55 (talk) 21:55, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
It does slow him down though. We have to do it on other wikis. It is why he is targeting you all now more likely. -Djsasso (talk) 23:18, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
Should probably semi-protect this page as well temporarily. -Djsasso (talk) 23:40, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
There is no slow-down: 15 different IPs during 1 hour. --Achim55 (talk) 15:42, 25 February 2020 (UTC)
Vandalism continues on this page. Please do something. Thanks. --Turkmen talk 00:21, 8 April 2020 (UTC)
Vandalism is not when one wants to speak his/her mind since November but I'd volunteer to intermediate between all the parties involved.Cleanupteam (talk) 21:58, 18 May 2020 (UTC)


Hello. The vandalism of GRP continued today, and I temporarily semi-protected User talk:StevenJ8 for a day. I did not find a local admin that I could contact at the time, so I took a temporary measure. I would like to ask for your generous understanding. And please review the action again and let me know. Thank you. --Sotiale (talk) 23:16, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

Thanks! I've extended it to a week. Ebe123 (Talkabout it|contribs) 19:50, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

Using MediaWiki API[edit]

Hello everyone, I am contributing to Wt/lzz, I created all of my articles in my computer as text files and add them into Wt/lzz with a script via MediaWiki API. @Axel xadolik said it might be prohibited and I need a bot account. But for my opinion, it's very different from a bot, bot works unattended through an algorithm and I only add pages with a script. I'm asking you about this, am I needed to use a bot account or this is ok? Sincerely, --Magurale (talk) 04:50, 9 March 2020 (UTC)

User:Magurale: I am replying a bit late, but if you don't overdo this, there should be no problem. --MF-W {a, b} 20:01, 6 April 2020 (UTC)

Marking for translation[edit]

Can a translation admin please go through and re-mark the following pages for translation:

Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 04:36, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

Done. --MF-W {a, b} 14:31, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

Will not let me make Wp/sencilloes[edit]

I need help please it keeps on showing a message/error saying it has an invalid prefix though it actually does not. I tried to make Wp/sencilloes (SimpleSpanish). Thank you. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Arthurfan828 (discussioncontribs) 13:08, 6 April 2020 (UTC).

Hello. This is working as intended. You need a valid code for the language, which "sencilloes" is not. --MF-W {a, b} 20:01, 6 April 2020 (UTC)

Uyghur Latin Wikibooks[edit]

Hello! Please give me the necessary permissions to create the Uyghur Latin wikipedia page. I am a strict Wikipedia follower. And I want to contribute on behalf of Uyghur Latin. Thanks now :) — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Keimain11 (discussioncontribs) 07:51, 16 April 2020 (UTC).
