Sockpuppetry[edit source]

Should we check users, who have been blocked, that may create another account... for example, if a guy called "james123" was banned then a nother user called "lolz99" asks for admin, should we check their ip's?-- JJBullet | Talk To Me 💬 18:08, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

Good idea. Hope that’ll be standard. Brownlowe.2 (talk) 17:38, 5 February 2020 (UTC)

Outdated info[edit source]

I noticed that some users that have been granted various rights need to be updated because of a ban or unban (etc). Should we get around to updating this? Brownlowe.2 (talk) 17:48, 31 January 2020 (UTC)

I might do that before we archive the page. I guess we will see. KylieInTheSkylie (talk) 16:26, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

What are the requirements? :P[edit source]

What are the requirements? :P Abraham236 (talk) 13:34, 21 August 2020 (UTC)

If you're talking about requirements to be an admin, I don't think there are any. As for bureaucrat, the only requirement is that you already be an admin. Valkyrie dimension (talk) 17:02, 21 August 2020 (UTC)
Oh, okay :) Abraham236 (talk) 23:25, 21 August 2020 (UTC)

Can I have my bureaucrat permission back please?[edit source]

What the title says. I would have posted this to the main page but due to some testing I can't. Thanks! Val (My changes here | Drop me a line) 11:01, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

Did you block yourself to test? Checking the MediaWiki says people who can block can't block/unblock if the user is blocked. Abraham236 (talk) 15:27, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
I blocked myself from editing some pages here, and then I was messing around with the user rights management and accidentally removed my admin and bureaucrat abilities. Val (My changes here | Drop me a line) 15:55, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
um, uhoh, I'm not a bureaucrat so I can't restore your rights :( Abraham236 (talk) 16:06, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
BTW, why did you block yourself? Abraham236 (talk) 16:31, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

I was testing the blocking ability of administrators. That's what people do here-test things that admins and bureaucrats can do. Like deleting and protecting pages, and changing user rights and blocking themselves (not other people). Val (My changes here | Drop me a line) 16:48, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

Oh, okay. I have a question. Would it be abusing admin power if I unblocked you? Abraham236 (talk) 21:52, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

No, it wouldn't be abuse of admin power. I would really appreciate it. Thank you! Val (My changes here | Drop me a line) 23:00, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

Ok. Unblocked! :D Abraham236 (talk) 23:29, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
