Bug fixed[edit]

The bug with null rights changes causing log entries should be fixed in rev:29526. Test.wp is currently running: 1.38.0-wmf.17 (6971d10) (purge to re-check) Splarka (talk) 07:28, 12 January 2008 (UTC)[reply]

That's what I wanted to know, thanks! Kylu (talk) 04:10, 13 January 2008 (UTC)[reply]
now fixed. Splarka (talk) 04:35, 13 January 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Hi there[edit]

Hi Kylu! Only me :) Not sure if you can (if it's like the other test wiki, but could I possibly get a sysop bit (pretty-please!). JtV was on here earlier today and I kinda feel somewhat powerless to react. Congrats on Meta 'cratship, BTW - Alison (talk) 06:38, 4 March 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Sysop status[edit]

Hi, I would like sysop status in order to edit MediaWiki:Monobook.css and MediaWiki:Common.css for this site. I can be of use here. --Kelsington (talk) 10:43, 4 March 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Err, I'm not a bureaucrat on testwiki at the moment, but Alison (above) is. Check special:listusers/bureaucrat for a list of them. I'll probably pester her for b/c so I can handle these sorts of requests. Alternatively, you could submit the changes and we could perform them. Whatever works. (We totally need local stewards for some of this...) Kylu (talk) 01:42, 5 March 2008 (UTC)[reply]
Got your message. Lemme check in with SB in the morning here ... I'm guessing it should be okay ;) - Alison 07:51, 5 March 2008 (UTC)[reply]


I see in irc your page [1] I found very interesting because this will not be necessary to disturb the stewards with that kind of thing. Sir Lestaty de Lioncourt (talk) 05:27, 18 March 2008 (UTC)[reply]

My thoughts exactly. Kylu 16:19, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

SUL temps[edit]

  3. User:Porthos
Reminder to self: drop when SUL migration ends. Leave Kim, he's useful. Kylu (talk) 06:39, 28 March 2008 (UTC)[reply]
Hi, please don't do that, I would like to point You to this discussion, thanks, best regards, --Spacebirdy (talk) 18:58, 1 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]
Requested rights removal here. Kylu (talk) 00:42, 2 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Sysop request[edit]

Please can I have sysop status in order test out the SUL extension and to edit some pages within the MediaWiki namespace?? I hope I can be useful here! Thanks, AP aka --Kelsington (talk) 14:27, 29 March 2008 (UTC) --Kelsington (talk) 14:30, 29 March 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Perhaps you should try Xyrael's Test Wiki instead. Prodego (entalk) 18:37, 29 March 2008 (UTC)[reply]
If you have specific MediaWiki pages that need to be updated, please let me know. You may wish to avoid editing Xyrael's MediaWiki pages... they're quite (um) unique, and I'm sure he's got it set up just the way he has it. A legitimate request for sysop rights on here is limited to those who develop software or are assisting those who do: Betacommand (who I gave sysop to recently, for instance) would prefer to test possible wiki-breaking changes here rather than on Wikipedia. Others test Wikipedia-specific javascript or MediaWiki extensions. Lastly, anyone on the SVN commit list ( is welcome to request sysop or bureaucrat rights at-will. People who want sysop to reserve the username globally without some use for it, however, shouldn't request it. Kylu (talk) 21:58, 29 March 2008 (UTC)[reply]


Hi Kylu, I am sorry for removing the rights from Maximillion Pegasus again, I did not mean undo Your decision, it is just temporary. I was contacted by a concerned user about the rights he gave to another user and would like You to talk to Maximillion Pegasus not to grant rights if he needs the cratship for testing the interface only. Please feel free to regrant Maximillion Pegasus the cratship and syop if You have talked to him and or if You decide it.

Thanks and best regards, --Spacebirdy (talk) 02:41, 4 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]

See here for my explanation. Sorry. Maximillion Pegasus (talk) 02:43, 4 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]
No problem, birdy. Maximillion: If you want to do interface testing, let me know and I'll set up an account for you on my private wiki where you can test functions without worrying about disrupting other users. Kylu (talk) 02:49, 4 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]
I did not mean to disrupt other users. If I had known it would be controversial, I would never had done it. What testing can I do on your wiki? Thanks for the offer. Maximillion Pegasus (talk) 02:56, 4 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]


Please take a look at my request for adminship for abuse filter testing, thanks. AC --Sunstar NW XP (talk) 19:01, 21 February 2009 (UTC)[reply]

reply (Request wasn't transcluded, hence nobody saw it. Fix that and we'll see who replies.). Kylu (talk) 11:02, 22 February 2009 (UTC)[reply]
Fixed. And congratulations on being promoted to checkuser on You've done great work as a Wikimedia admin, hopefully your great work will continue! AC --Sunstar NW XP (talk) 11:53, 22 February 2009 (UTC)[reply]
Hey, thanks. I've pointed out to another bureaucrat or two that there's a request up here from a couple people. I wouldn't want to promote under a COI, of course. Kylu (talk) 20:11, 22 February 2009 (UTC)[reply]


Hey Kylu. :) Would you mind giving your opinion here? Further opinions are needed to reach consensus. Thank you. — Aitias // discussion 06:38, 28 February 2009 (UTC)[reply]
