Incubator:Administrators/Archive/Test adminship 2012

From Wikimedia Incubator


Hi All, I want to apply for adminship on incubator Hindi Wikinews project. Currently this project is in incubator and probably there are no users to contribute on it. So to protect it from vandalism and to make it more active so that the project ultimately becomes a separate project I need adminship. I am already an admin on Hindi wikipedia so there should not be any doubt on my Hindi language skills and my adminship. My Hi wiki user page is here रोहित रावत 17:05, 17 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

You seem to be the only one there, and there is rarely any vandalism here. What is there that the current administrators couldn't do? Ebe123 (Talkabout it|contribs) 20:49, 22 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Currently there are no admins there. Also if I become admin I can install various tools which are needed to create articles in Hindi. An admin can delete pages, can rerename pages, can rename categories etc which a normal user can't. Okay there might not be any vandalism there but it is not gauranteed that there will beno vandalism. There is no vandalism because the incubator project was inactive from the last 3 years or so. So I hope I've answered all your queries. If you are still doubtful you can further put your queries and I'll be happy to answer. रोहित रावत 16:52, 25 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Installing various tools... do you mean gadgets. I was not talking about test-sysops but sysops listed here that can act on any test. Ebe123 (Talkabout it|contribs) 01:36, 26 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]


Sir, please continue my test-adminship for wp/khw which is going to expire on January 22nd. I want to plan to stay active in the project, therefore I am re-applying for adminship on incubator Khowar Wikipedia project. Rehmat Aziz Chitrali 05:21, 25 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

The policy states to request after the rights have expired. Ebe123 (Talkabout it|contribs) 10:49, 25 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
They have already, so this request is valid. --MF-W {a, b} 11:00, 25 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Good day, I would like to request test-adminship on the Wikipedia project in Mi'kmaq (mic). I'm already an administrator on the Wikipedia in Cree (cr) if you need to see some references and I'm mainly involved in the Wikipedia in French (fr). It is mainly to be able to delete pages created by mistake or useless redirect without creating any more burden on the actual Incubator's administrators. Amqui 17:03, 28 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Tu as de l'éxperience et je pense que tu ferais du bon travail. Mais la plupars des articles pouvent être supprimé à cause qu'ils sont juste un image avec le nom de l'article, et (pour l'article Wp/mic/Kaqtukewéj) "Kaqtukewéj (english: ant, french: fourmi)" Le "liste de participants" ne devrait pas exister de mon avis, et il y a pas la catégorie du wiki. Finalement, le wiki a juste 2 jours (pas à dire que la pluspars entre eux ont été créé aujourd'hui). P.S. Que le peuple des Mi'kmaq aidait les acadiens. Je suis acadien. Ebe123 (Talkabout it|contribs) 22:21, 28 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
"Mais la plupars des articles pouvent être supprimé à cause qu'ils sont juste un image avec le nom de l'article" Il faut laisser le temps, ce sont des ébauches, c'est à ça que sert l'incubateur. Et pourquoi ne devrait-il pas y avoir de liste de participants ? Bien entendu, cela ne se retrouvera pas sur le Wiki une fois terminé, mais pour le moment il s'agit d'un projet et la liste des participants est très utile à la coordination. Cependant, il s'agit d'un autre sujet, vous êtes invités à discuter du wiki en Mi'kmaq ici. Merci, Amqui 19:57, 29 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
I honestly don't see a great problem here, as it's not important if a test has a lot of stub or not when discussing giving test-adminship. It is rather important if it would be useful for the requesting user and Incubator admins, as the user could then do housekeeping deletions etc. by him/herself. --MF-W {a, b} 23:36, 29 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Ils sont moins qu'on ébauche, ils ont juste 6 mots (deux entre eux en d'autre langues) et un image. Comme j'ai dit un couple de minutes passé sur en.wiki, Quantity is no substitute for quality. Ebe123 (Talkabout it|contribs) 02:06, 30 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Tu es conscient qu'un Wikipédia en langue amérindienne et le Wikipédia anglophone ne seront jamais comparables ? Amqui 14:32, 30 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Bien sûr: la qualité est vachement importante, mais cela n'est pas une discussion sur the final approval by Langcom. Je pense, quand il y a un utilisateur qui contribue régulièrement à un test wiki et a besoin de supprimer des pages quelquefois, il peut bien recevoir le statut "test-administrator". --MF-W {a, b} 16:24, 30 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Having admin tools would also let me merge pages on the same subject that different people create with a different spelling. Amqui 19:58, 29 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Merging does not require admin rights. Ebe123 (Talkabout it|contribs) 02:06, 30 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
I'd like you to show me how to do it then. Please, Amqui 02:27, 30 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
So you may copy-paste, but state the main contributor(s). Ebe123 (Talkabout it|contribs) 10:27, 30 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
That's work when one page is pretty empty, but if both are developed, it is preferable to merge pages' history as well in order to keep track of the authors and comply with the license. Amqui 14:28, 30 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Absolutly, but as the pages are small (and you're the only contributor, then history-merge is not needed. Ebe123 (Talkabout it|contribs) 10:46, 1 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
I'm not the only contributor, we are two already and more are coming. Amqui 14:06, 1 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Fine. Test-adminship granted. Ebe123 (Talkabout it|contribs) 19:56, 5 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]


Hi Can you please renew my test adminship for another year. Girmitya 23:40, 29 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

with pleasure, Done - However I'd like to recommend you to do translation work (or ask in hif.wikipedia for volunteers) on the interface, which is a requirement for the approval of wt/hif so that it could become a full wiki [1] [2]. --MF-W {a, b} 21:18, 30 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Janthiemen (talk | contribs)

Hello, I would like to become test admin on the dutch wikinews test wiki, because I think it's a project with verry much potential, but with verry less activity. And I think that it is possible to get it active again. Janthiemen 07:24, 9 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for your contributions to this wiki! I would like to point out that you just started editing on 3rd February 2012, and you are requesting for test adminship. There is no requirements for length of time of activity, but it would bring about concern regarding your experience here on the Wikimedia Incubator. --Hydriz 14:29, 10 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Done --MF-W {a, b} 18:42, 15 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]


I would like to be made a test-administrator so that I could do my wiki work with more authority. RMizo (talk) 19:24, 7 March 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Please don't forget to mention which is your test wiki. Also, please note that being a test-admin doesn't give you any special authority, for example about the content or so. --MF-W {a, b} 20:07, 7 March 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Cekli829 (wq/tt)

Amqui (wp/shh)

A test-sysop on shh is not needed right now, but, since I already have test-sysop admin rights on another test-wiki, I may use the tools by reflex if I need to perform a quick delete or something like that, so I prefer asking for test-adminship on wp/shh as well ahead of time. Thanks you, Amqui (talk) 03:06, 14 April 2012 (UTC)[reply]

This is not needed, but the 5 days could go by and I add Wp/shh to you. You may already use the tools there. Ebe123 (Talkabout it|contribs) 17:13, 14 April 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Omnipaedista (wp/grc, wq/grc)

I would like to re-apply for test-adminship in Wp/grc and Wq/grc. Best regards. --00:01, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Done Thank you for your devotion to your test wiki! :) --Hydriz (talk) 12:05, 24 May 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Btw, our policy says "Users are given 5 days to place comments. After this period, requests will be reviewed by a bureaucrat (...)" So maybe better to wait a few more days in future requests :-) SPQRobin (talk) 20:24, 24 May 2012 (UTC)[reply]
If you're waiting for comments, then I support this request. Amqui (talk) 21:08, 24 May 2012 (UTC)[reply]

I offer my services as Permanent Administrator of Khowar Test Wikipedia, My test adminship for wp/khw is going to be expired this year. I am aware of the fact that test-adminship is not avaiable as a permanent status, but only given for one year terms. I am regularly contributing to khowar test Wikipedia by creating khowar articles, editing, translating and researching. therefore, i am applying my services as Permanent Administrator of Khowar test Wikipedia i.e. wp/khw, please consider my request and grant me Permanent Administrator for wp/khw.

Mathonius (wn/nl)

I'm interested in reviving the Dutch Wikinews. A problem, apart from the lack of activity, are the copyright violations on this project, which already was a problem when nl.wikinews wasn't closed down yet. Being a test admin would make it easier and more efficient for me to clean this up. I also expect to use this test adminship to do general maintenance on wn/nl. I have experience as a global sysop and as an admin on nl.wikipedia, en.wikiversity, meta and commons (see sulutil:Mathonius for more information). Mathonius (talk) 02:50, 1 July 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Would support this request. User is somewhat active on the test-wiki, and is trusted globally with sysop rights (although in such instances having global rights does not mean anything) --Hydriz (talk) 13:04, 1 July 2012 (UTC)[reply]
We do not have to state support for test-administrator. Just say why you oppose if you do. Ebe123 (Talkabout it|contribs) 13:48, 3 July 2012 (UTC)[reply]
It might not be necessary, but there is no reason why one should not voice supports. --MF-W {a, b} 00:16, 6 July 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Päivüd (Wp/vot)

I want to request for test adminship in Votic Wikipedia. First, I can speak Votic and I'm ready to be helpful here (I did 140 edits to time; have translator's rights on TranslateWiki...). Secondly, I want to clean up and correct the orthography (it can be hard to do it without admin-rights). Best regards,--Päivüd (talk) 20:20, 23 July 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, one question: In which cases do you need test-admin rights for correcting the orthography? Thanks --MF-W {a, b} 14:26, 26 July 2012 (UTC)[reply]
For example, this category has incorrect name. I could delete it and create a new category with right name... Of course, in other cases admin-rights won't need for simple fixes.--Päivüd (talk) 15:02, 26 July 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Very well. One note: You can already now - before your test-adminship will be granted - request such fixes from administrators on I:Administrators' noticeboard. --MF-W {a, b} 15:30, 26 July 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for the tip, but I prefer to do it by myself. :-) It just convenient for me.--Päivüd (talk) 18:42, 26 July 2012 (UTC)[reply]

May I ask what you mean by "I mostly active"? Do you want to say you are the most active contributor there or that it is the test wiki in which you make most of your contributions? --MF-W {a, b} 14:19, 17 August 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Of the two projects I have been working as an active, someone could understand the other mother tongue languages.Already you can see when you look at data from the last six months.For the first time I wanted to management. You missed my enthusiasm, you can cancel.--Erdemaslancan (talk) 21:34, 20 August 2012 (UTC)[reply]
I understand that Zazaki is your mother tongue, and I also see that you make contributions to these test wikis. However, I did not understand what you exactly meant by your request text "I mostly active on <Project>". Especially because we both are no native speakers of English, I asked for a clarification. --MF-W {a, b} 10:55, 21 August 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Mathonius (Wn/nl) - removal

I've finished deleting the copyright violations on Wn/nl. I don't think I will be spending much more time on this test project, because there aren't any other contributors, creating new content takes a lot of time compared to the Wikipedia and Wiktionary projects, and there's little motivation to try to revive the Dutch Wikinews. I probably won't be needing this test adminship anymore, so please remove it. Thanks, Mathonius (talk) 23:56, 17 August 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Ohpuu (Wp/liv)

I would like to request for a test adminship in the Livonian Wikipedia project. Although I am not a native speaker of Livonian (but speak the closely related Estonian as my mother tongue) I can read and write Livonian (and have access to printed resources on Livonian to aid me further should my inherent competence fail me). Also, I have a few years of experience as an admin from the Estonian-language version of Wikipedia. The Livonian Wikipedia project seems to gain some activity so that the necessity of cleaning up something is all the more likely. -- Ohpuu (talk) 09:43, 22 August 2012 (UTC)[reply]
