Requests for adminship[edit]

Important notice: Please do not request sysop status on this site if you plan to request a subdomain, and to mainly participate in that subdomain. Please wait until your subdomain is created, and request to be an admin there.

SWilson (WMF)[edit]

SWilson (WMF) (talk contribs blocks protects deletions moves rights)

I would like to ask for admin rights so that I can maintain Wikisource:Google OCR scripts that are used on various indic-language Wikisources. I don't envisage that I'd do much other editing here (I'm mainly active on ENWS, where I'm an admin as my personal accout User:Samwilson).

Thanks. SWilson (WMF) (talk) 22:45, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done --Zyephyrus (talk) 00:11, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks everyone! :-) —SWilson (WMF) (talk) 11:23, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Aleator[edit]

Hello! It's been some months since I tag Gujarati pages for deletion, previous verification of the page in gu.source. Still 434 pages are pending deletion (plus its redirects). I was thinking that some admins may be hating me every time I tag a dozen of such pages (I can feel it! ;D) So what about giving me a temporary adminship exclusively for deleting Gujarati pages? That would give you more time for other things (those deletions do not worth the consumption of double, golden, time). Once that all of them are deleted (and transfered to gu.source if they still are not there), then I'll ask for the removal of adminship. I don't want a permanent one because I'm already sysop at ca.source and es.source and that's too much yet. Thanks! -Aleator 23:08, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

  • Well I wasn't "hating" you for your deletion requests of gujarati pages at all (at least, the log of my admin activity doesn't seem so bad), but anyway: Aleator is a trusty member of this community and does much usefull work.

Well, Aleator's request has been made two and half weeks ago, time enough. I see no objection, but would like to hear what @Ooswesthoesbes: is thinking about it. Then - I would say - we could grant the rights, as said above, to this trusty user. Regards, -jkb- (talk) 17:53, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Clear consensus. It's about time those pages got deleted. I agree with -jkb- though: we don't hate you ;) --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 12:12, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Well my friends, that's all done. I request for my desysoping in Multilingual Wikisource. There are still a few Gujarati texts that may be deleted, but are still pending on comments from Gujarati comunity. So when feedback comes, I'll tag pages as usually, with {{delete}}. And... yes, love wins ;DD Smiley bouncing.gif-Aleator 23:26, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

Well, as for me, Aleator did a great work, and he is a very trustfull user, so I would propose he keeps his admin rights just to help here with the business as usual :-) -jkb- (talk) 00:19, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Satdeep Gill[edit]

Satdeep Gill (talk contribs blocks protects deletions moves rights)

Hello everyone, I am Satdeep Gill. Here on Wikisource I have been mainly working on Punjabi (pa) language but now I have found some texts in other languages and Google OCR is also somewhat these texts now. I will be working mainly on Hindi, Urdu and Western Punjabi languages here. I am testing Google OCR on these languages here and I would like to request temporary adminship. Thank you. --Satdeep Gill (talk) 10:18, 31 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi, Satdeep Gill! Let me ask you which are the functions of sysop that you would like to use more? Thanks! -Aleator 12:41, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
Hi User:Aleator, As a sysop I would delete some useless pages if created while testing Google OCR on various scripts. I also see that only one of the current sysops knows a South Asian language. I can keep a check on the work being done in language communities such as Hindi, Urdu, Western Punjabi and Nepali and also help them if required. I have also started importing some useful templates to this Wikisource.--Satdeep Gill (talk) 12:57, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
While I have no objections concerning the candidate's skils and responsibility, it is still unclear to me what temporary work the adminship rights are requested for (or for how long). The presented above justification for the request (at least its second part) suggests rather request for permanent, not temporary, adminship. Also, while it is likely for Hindi Wikisource to be separated soon, I don't think that about Punjabi, so I hope Satdeep Gill will not leave us soon. I would suggest @Satdeep Gill: to be more precise about purpose for his adminship, or to start a new request for permanent adminship. Just for clarity: we should know what exactly we are voting for. Ankry (talk) 12:13, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
@Ankry: I am importing some useful templates to Wikisource as well and some times during such work and OCR testing , there is an error. I would be using my rights to work efficiently in that direction. Besides that I will be working to facilitate other small communities. Even if Hindi Wikisource is created, that will not stop me from working on Nepali, Punjabi, Tibetan and other languages. I hope i have made myself clear. I would surely like permanent rights but after a temporary period. --Satdeep Gill (talk) 01:43, 5 November 2016 (UTC)
  • I would like to know the oppinion of @Yann:, -jkb- (talk) 00:12, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I think that most of sysops functions can be delegated to the present sysops (e.g. adding {{delete}} and so on); checking to other users edits and helping to other users can be achieved without sysop privileges. But, IMHO, Satdeep Gill is a trusted, helpful and influencer user (I've looked to his crosswiki edits ^_^, e.g. he's sysop in 3 more wikis and very active in a lot more, including Wikisources). I think that his language skills make it a great opportunity for this wiki to widen and strong the sysop spectrum of capabilities, and in a long term way (because sysoping a user, usually makes him/her to stay longer in the wiki). So yes, support. -Aleator 14:01, 31 October 2016 (UTC)

Requests for Bureaucrat rights[edit]

-jkb-[edit]

-jkb- (talk contribs blocks protects deletions moves rights)

-jkb- is well known to the community as a long-term admin and former bureaucrat here (he resigned in 2012 due to inactivity). He is quite active now, taking much care about the project. After we have lost our coleague-bureaucrat, we have only two bureaucrats. I think it would be good to have more than the standard minimum. Particularly since sudden bureaucrat action requirements happen here sometimes and everybody (even our current bureaucrats) should have the opportunity to be inactive or not to take a decision that they do not feel comfortable with. I hope -jkb- will accept my nomination. Ankry (talk) 19:03, 17 September 2016 (UTC)

I thank you you Ankry for your trust and your nomination. Yep, I would gladly help the project as bureaucrat, since I am an admin and partly a bureaucrat here since 2005, as far as I remember. In the last years I was quite active and I would like to be it in the future as well, with the same focus, but a bit more concerning the huge amount of probably copyvios here. It is true, that the role of the bureaucrats, after we finished the big SUL renaming, decreased a bit, but anyway I thing as well that one more bureacrat would be good for this project. As I know the other two bureaucrats - Zyephyrus and Ooswesthoesbes - from here and from other projects very good I guess we could cooperate in full harmony. Thus I accept Ankrys nomination - thank you for it again. -jkb- (talk) 20:55, 17 September 2016 (UTC)

Requests for other rights[edit]

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.
