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Outdated info[edit source]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)

Page edit, move and protect permissions[edit source]

Could you please set the permissions of this page to "Allow only bureaucrats"? @Dmehus: --LisafBia (talk) 16:24, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

Why should only bureaucrats be able to edit this page? Sei (My changes here | Drop me a line) 18:46, 15 April 2022 (UTC)
 Comment: @LisafBia: - Please elaborate on your question. We would never lock this page to only be edited by 'crats as it is vital everyone has the ability to voice their opinion, just like the Community portal. Trayfel • ( Edits | Talk ) 19:37, 15 April 2022 (UTC)
My point is this: Move, protect permissions for archive can be 'bureaucrats only LisafBia (talk) 23:37, 15 April 2022 (UTC)
