  • Wish to translate some things, fix the sidebar and the main page. Also enable an edit filter. (Temp. Adminship) Tomtomn00 (talk) 11:58, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

Discussion[edit source]

  • Do you know Kirundi? -- Tegel (talk) 12:48, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
I know some words, however most content is in English and all code is understandable. I have my own wiki and know all the admin things. ~ ⇒TomTomN00 @ 16:38, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
How can you translate "translate some things" if you only know some words. What do you really need the flag for? Please note that this obsession to get rights across various projects won't do you any good. Savh (talk) 17:22, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
  • How do you want to translate something if you don't know Kirundi at all? And in which way do you want to "fix" the sidebar and Main Page? --MF-Warburg (talk) 17:23, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
Looking at the main page myself, it needs serious cleanup and needs protection. Sidebar needs some redirects moved. ~ ⇒TomTomN00 @ 17:47, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
And how are you going to do that, with the few words you know? The main page does not need protection, because if it would be protected no very few users could edit it. Savh (talk) 17:49, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
One is: Wikipedia:Current_events on the Sidebar, it redirects to the Community Portal. ~ ⇒TomTomN00 @ 17:53, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
  • What an edit filter do you want to create, and why? --MF-Warburg (talk) 17:23, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
The filter I wish to upload is one that I have already created. It revokes users adding <noinclude></noinclude>, <includeonly></includeonly> and <nowiki> </nowiki> tags around an image, then could warn the user. Source Code: fr:Utilisateur:Tomtomn00/filter/4(general) ~ ⇒TomTomN00 @ 17:36, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
Is that a problem here that need to be fixed? -- Tegel (talk) 17:38, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
One is on the sidebar, Wikipedia:Current events just redirects to Wikipedia:Community Portal
  • So, you create an English-language page for requesting adminship here. You clearly do not speak the language, and I see no intention of actually helping out around here. Anything I missed? Ajraddatz (talk) 17:26, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
However, the wiki formatting is still the same, and I want temp. access just for filters and the sidebar, probably around 2 weeks/1 month for the work I am thinking of doing. ~ ⇒TomTomN00 @ 18:02, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

Should I request on meta now? ~ ⇒TomTomN00 @ 19:20, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

No, as you still haven't shown a real need for the flag. Savh (talk) 19:28, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
I basically want to create some filters, fix the redirects and blank page links in the sidebar and improve some MediaWiki namespace notices. ~ ⇒TomTomN00 @ 19:31, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
I'd also need to revert edits like that recent one on Help:Contents. ~ ⇒TomTomN00 @ 19:38, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
Don't you have an "undo" button? Mathonius (talk) 19:39, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
I have that and it's now fixed. -- Tegel (talk) 19:40, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
My undo button is now working. It normally brought up a blank screen, or the homepage on my browser. ~ ⇒TomTomN00 @ 19:42, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
  • I'm sure you could ask a user with appropriate global rights to fix the redirect issue. As for your cleanup on the main page, you can do that without the rights, and as for protection, it is currently protected. Hmm., what else have I missed? Oh, the abuse filter isn't an issue for concern. Basically, you have no read need. This is a content project, and since you couldn't use the native language to make this request, I wonder how much you really know.  Hazard-SJ  ±  19:42, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
I guess so. Note: I said I wanted to be sysop temporarily. ~ ⇒TomTomN00 @ 19:48, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

Vote[edit source]

  • Oppose - Lack of experience on this project, hat collecting attempts at various other projects. 2 requests for Global rollback, 1 request for Global sysop, [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8] and [9]. This is funnily enough not the first time "cross-wiki hat collection" is mentioned, please keep in mind that rights are not the purpose of getting active, but just a help. Please refrain from requesting more rights, and use the ones you have (edit, move, etc.). For the time being, stewards and current global sysops can take care of the maintenance need of this project. This wiki isn't and shouldn't become your personal playground, please use your own wiki. Savh (talk) 19:53, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
Please withdraw my request. ~ ⇒TomTomN00 @ 20:28, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
Not sure who can do that, since you created this process entirely for requesting adminship here... and it's in English, rather than the native language... Ajraddatz (talk) 20:53, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
