Request for bureaucrat and syadmin (Status:  Done)

I know this is a bit early considering I've only been here for a couple of hours, but I think I can help with managing the wiki, extension requests, debugging issues, and anything else that needs to be done here. I think I meet all the requirements on the sysadmin page, and I can confirm that I have GIT knowledge and that I know how both SSH and FTP work. This wiki has great potential and I think I can do well. Feel free to ask me any additional questions and I will be happy to answer. Andrei (talk) 18:09, 19 July 2017 (UTC)


  • You seem to know what you’re doing MacFan4000 (talk) 18:25, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
  • I agree and think you should be given these permissions. Kiko4564 (talk) 18:31, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

AlvaroMolina for sysadmin (Status:  Not done)

I'd like to formally nominate the user AlvaroMolina for the post of sysadmin. He has shown the community that he is very active and knowledgeable about wiki usage (see his miraheze profile @ https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/User:AlvaroMolina for details). He will also enforce the mutual confirmation clause by being a voice on decisions (1 sysadmin does something and the other 3 can review/vote on it). I believe he will be a valuable asset to both the site and team and hereby nominate him for the post.

Joepayne (talk) 14:37, 9 September 2017 (UTC)

Please indicate your acceptance of this nomination below:

@Joepayne: Hi, I think him work good in steward, if you know sysadmin is different with a community social group, however sysadmin work in code and mediawiki system administration (such as git). :)Mbrt (talk) 16:07, 9 September 2017 (UTC)
At the moment I think I feel comfortable being steward, I might be able to help as sysadmin at some point since I have some experience in managing a server with MediaWiki using FTP and installing extensions both by this method and in console. Regards. —Alvaro Molina ( - ) 19:44, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

 Not done Bingobro; Steward and Checkuser

Id like to request Steward and Checkuser rights. I'll use them responsibly. Bingobro (Chat) 08:40, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

I've been waiting quite long now MacFan4000 (talk) or anyone else kindly help. Bingobro (Chat) 03:41, 26 September 2017 (UTC)


1. Done Strong Support: I'd support this user as he has approved a few requests for adminship (including me).He has also blocked unruly/rouge users. Me Contact 08:16, 29 September 2017 (UTC)


  • Weak Oppose I like if you get one year here and actively. Mbrt (talk) 02:20, 30 September 2017 (UTC)


  • Netural I think we have enough stewards for right now, maybe if the site becomes more active. MacFan4000 (talk) 14:54, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

@MacFan4000:Well could I get Check user since no one is voting I think you are the only one active to do such things.Bingobro (Chat) 12:08, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

CheckUser is only given to Stewards/Sysadmins. We have currently got four stewards (including me). MacFan4000 (talk) 13:30, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

Respect, your opinions guys. Guess I'll have to wait a little.Thanks.Bingobro (Chat) 05:13, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

New feature request -Page forms

Hello User:MacFan4000 I would like to request a extension https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Page_Forms for testing purpose. Thanks in advance Anoop/ಅನೂಪ್ . © 06:10, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

Per miraheze reasoning for disabling it, it seems to not work right now. MacFan4000 (talk) 20:02, 2 October 2017 (UTC)

Why this strange condition while asking for permissions


Its a good idea to have admin rigghts easily for testing purposes. I found last part of second condition bit strange while asking for permissions it says "I agree that I am entirely responsible for all actions done under this account, including actions performed under this account by someone other than myself. Why does some one should take responsibility for action not performed by himself ?

Mahitgar (talk) 14:11, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

because every person who does vandalism can say that they didn't do it and escape from their blocks.Since nobody would have access to your account unless you disclose your account details or use public connections and forget to logging out, which is also your fault. Anoop/ಅನೂಪ್ . © 21:46, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
I suppse this is just private/personal -non wmf- a test wiki . You can heve filters that will apply to users with admin rights too. Any content beyond tests can be removed deleted periodically. Why one needs to punish the user. and If any unlawful thing at all happens there are enough legal protection for website owner. If any case oes at all before any court then It is for investigation agencies and courts to determine whether a specific person was in his control of the device or no. It would be against natural justice if some ones device realy gets stolen and a mis did happens. At times a theft can really happen under durace at such times such condition informs the user that you ought to be looser even if you did not make a real mistake. I do suggest site owners to revisit their contention and take advice from a lawyer and put in reasonable conditions.
I wanted to divert some users to use this site , but under the given conditions it is difficult to advice any one to use the site.
If site owners do not feel need to revisit the policy then there is no pint continuing the membership and I request to remove me from your site membership
Thanks any way and regards
Mahitgar (talk) 10:11, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

@ Mahitgar I would like to say as it your choice to maintain account,
this wiki does not entitle for any legal procedures nor accommodates(ex:theft) those you explained above
so its choice of Stewards/Staff/System Admin/Owner of this wiki to set rules against spam/vandalism/disrupting other users. This Wiki alongside any MediaWiki sites uses similar Rules and Regulations & Further if you wish to disable your membership please create Phabricator task regarding closure of account, We are sorry to see you go.

Flood flag

I am proposing a flood flag like on meta wikipedia. This right should only have the bot right to stop actions from flooding Special:RecentChanges. A short description is here https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Meta:Flood_flag . This is based off the principle of least priveledge and differentiates between real bots and quick flooding bot flags easily. --Joepayne (talk) 13:51, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

Well, least privilege doesn't really apply, since the only right that bots have that admins don't (besides bot) is nominornewtalk. I don't know if it's really needed, unless we really want to seriously separate legitimate bots from users performing flood actions. -- Void Whispers 00:26, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
Actually I think we should separate legitimate bots from flooders just so its quicker and hey you don't really need nominornewtalk unless you are a real bot/user testing bot. Thanks Joepayne (talk) 08:37, 18 October 2017 (UTC)

 Not done /User denied proposal AlvaroMolina for sysadmin

Due to the recent removal of sysadmin and steward rights from Mbrt (thank you for your service by the way), we need to fill in the void (no pun intended). I therefore support AlvaroMolinia's ascent to the post of sysadmin so he may continue on in Mbrt's legacy. Joepayne (talk) 00:14, 22 October 2017 (UTC)

Candidate please indicate acceptance of the nomination here:

  • Thanks for the nomination, however being sysadmin is the same as being steward (in the wiki) and also Mbrt admitted that he would return in a few months. I would have no problem getting promoted, but for now with the tools I have today I feel comfortable, it's not an urgent need for me. Regards. —Alvaro Molina ( - ) 16:06, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
It is a bit different since you get access to the backend (Via FTP/SSH). MacFan4000 (talk) 12:27, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
 Request WithdrawnAlvaro Molina ( - ) 17:22, 2 November 2017 (UTC)


Support as nominator. If Mbrt comes back we can discuss this again and maybe change stuff but at least temp perms until he comes back so everything is well maintained. Thanks. Joepayne (talk) 08:05, 24 October 2017 (UTC)



  1. I was told by Mbrt via Talk Page that they were busy, and that they could return in January. MacFan4000 (talk) 16:13, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
