User:Electron Bot (temporary admin rights for my bot)[edit]

Electron (talk contribs blocks protects deletions moves rights)

I need temporary admin rights for my bot to delete all articles and categories from Category:Беларуская (there are more than 1500 arcicles) which were moved already to Belarusian Wikisource -> [1], more -> here. I am a trusted user on Commons, and an editor on pl-wiki and pl-wikisource. As Wikimedia user I have about 40.000 edits (to sum up on all wikis, see: [2]) and more than 33.000 on Wikia projects). I am familiar with the bots that I use often on my Polish Wikia sites -> Ogród Petenery as Electron Bot user and on Polish PrePedia -> [3]. I suppose that one week (7 days) will be enougth time to do this job unhurriedly. Also please, if this request is aproved, to add the bot flag for my bot. Thank you in advance. Electron Smiley kabelsalat.gif <Talk?> 09:46, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Support - I have no real problem with this, the user has been around since 2009 and is experienced enough to do this. It has been a while since this was proposed and somebody needs a temporary admin bot to do this job eventually; it could be a current admin, several have bots, but if Electron is willing to do the job, I say flag his bot and give him a temporary bit. Electron, how long do you think you'll need the bit from when we give it to you to when you finish the job?--Doug.(talk contribs) 20:42, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
    Sorry for my long delay with the answer. But I did't look here for long time. Thanks for your support. As I sad I think that ca one week (7 days) will be enougth time to do this job unhurriedly.

User:Doug (importer)[edit]

Doug (talk contribs blocks protects deletions moves rights)

I am an an admin and transwiki-importer on this project as well as a bot operator. I am also an admin and bot operator on en.ws, mw.org, and en.wp and a bureaucrat, admin, and bot operator on la.ws. I have experience using import-upload on private mw wikis. I have previously requested importer (import-upload) rights on the Scriptorium for this wiki, but the request was archived after only a few comments (see archives, here). A renewed request received no comments after nearly two months, so on the suggestion of Ooswesthoesbes, I'm starting a thread here.

To summarize the need, there is a bug, which causes transwiki import to the multilingual wikisource to fail (except from sv.wssa.ws last I checked). The only way (that is consistent with the licenses) to replicate templates, etc. on mul.ws is to use the more powerful importupload right. importupload can only be granted by a steward (and steward rights also include the right). We have one importer, who happens to also be a steward (he has the importupload privilege independently for this project), Jusjih. As I am working on multilingual works and works that are here due to subdomain copyright policies, I want to be able to import templates easily without requesting this of Jusjih every time. I have basically stopped work on a couple of projects due to the lack of templates. As an active user, I would gladly do this for others as required.--Doug.(talk contribs) 12:33, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Votes for removal of rights[edit]

This areas is for votes to remove rights, either for inactivity or for misuse of rights (or any other reason). Please vote/comment on whether you think that the users below should keep or lose their respective user rights. Unless otherwise noted, users who have multiple rights will only have the rights under the particular section removed (i.e. a user with both admin and bureaucrat rights who is nominated for removal of bureaucrat rights, will retain their admin rights). However, normally bureaucrats who lose their admin rights will also lose their bureaucrat rights. Removals of most rights require a Steward, after a discussion is closed with a result of removal, the closing editor should post a request on meta.

Vote for removal of administrator privileges[edit]

This section is for removal of admin rights ("desysopping") If you have been listed here due to inactivity, but intend to resume admin duties, please indicate this so that others can re-evaluate whether you should be desysopped. Admins who are desysopped due to inactivity are encouraged to resume administration whenever they wish, either by talking to a crat or initiating a request above. Admins who do not respond may be automatically desysopped after 30 days.

ThomasBot[edit]

ThomasBot (talk contribs blocks protects deletions moves rights) - (last edit 29 September 2010, last log action 7 December 2010) - CrossActivity - YAEC - SUL - Luxo
  • Desyop as nom due to inactivity and lack of current need for an adminbot. I'm nominating all of the long inactive accounts pro forma. In addition, this one was discussed at Wikisource:Scriptorium/Archives/Jan_2011_-_Dec_2011#Stale_bots_and_sysops last October. ThomasBot has not edited on any wiki since last August and has not edited here in 17 months (no log actions in 14 months). The primary reason for being a sysop appears to be related to deleting pages that had been exported to a subdomain - this is the only wiki on which ThomasBot is an adminbot. This could easily be done by any competent bot handler when needed and ThomasBot isn't around to do it any way. If ThomasV comes back with his bot, it's a simple click for any crat to give it the flag. Additionally, although I expect ThomasV has high standards of security, I generally consider an inactive admin bot to be high risk.--Doug.(talk contribs) 04:05, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

ThomasV[edit]

ThomasV (talk contribs blocks protects deletions moves rights) - (last edit 27 June 2011, last log action 21 February 2011) - CrossActivity - YAEC - SUL - Luxo
  • Desyop as nom due to inactivity as pointed out by VIGNERON above. I'm nominating all of the long inactive accounts pro forma. ThomasV announced his (hopefully temporary) retirement last year and his last edit on any wikimedia project was to confirm on this project that he asked Phe to take over for him as part of his vote of support for Phe's promotion to admin. I would of course support his immediate reinstatement if he came back but I see little chance that he's going to just drop by and take an admin action or even be available if we thought we needed him. He hasn't logged an action in over a year [7].--Doug.(talk contribs) 10:46, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Support for desysop, I too will strongly support his reinstatement if he comes back someday. Candalua (talk) 17:25, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

  • Desyop as nom due to inactivity. I'm nominating all of the long inactive accounts pro forma. Nothing against -jkb- and I know that they are active on other projects, but they haven't logged anything in over a year. I have separately nominated this user for removal of crat privileges, noms should remain separate as the circumstances are substantially different. I have notified the user of both actions.--Doug.(talk contribs) 11:21, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
see bellow, I would like to keep the sysop rigts -jkb- (talk) 05:26, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Retain as he's still around at Wikimedia projects generally and would like to remain an admin here. —Angr 11:39, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
    I have no problem with this in principle, but I'd like to see -jkb- actually use the rights now and then.--Doug.(talk contribs) 12:36, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
    ok, shortly I will make an "arbcom break" in de:wiki and so I think I will have some more time for toher projects, but up to now it took much time and energy. Regards, -jkb- (talk) 19:25, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Yann[edit]

  • Keep I think contributors who serve temporarily and very much in sister projects, as Yann or as Eclecticology for instance do, ought not to be desysopped, because they know how to use the tools, having the same tools there, and they show they care for the wikimedian projects who are a whole, and so are neither indifferent nor inactive. --Zyephyrus (talk) 15:46, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Decrat as nom due to inactivity. I'm nominating all of the long inactive accounts pro forma. Nothing against -jkb- and I know that they are active on other projects, but they have never logged a crat action on this project according to pathoschild's tool. They have logged a fair number of admin actions but nothing in over a year but I am intentionally raising the crat inactivity separately (and I'm doing so here because there doesn't appear to have ever been a promotion/demotion discussion on the crat page). Even if the user is lurking and wants to continue to be an admin (like LadyInGrey apparently was), then I still support removing crat privileges. I can't see a discussion of granting these privileges but they were granted after the user became inactiveafter the last admin log action with the justification "to reflect practical need" [9] and the user's last edit was 26 May 2011.--Doug.(talk contribs) 11:08, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
    note there was some sort of discussion at User_talk:-jkb-#Bureaucrat but it was basically the other crats discussing, no other members of the community.--Doug.(talk contribs) 17:13, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
