Wikipedia Requests

Wikipedia Test-Wiki is for developers.

Please read this: This wiki does not exist for users to test out random nonsense on an exhaustive basis; it's here for developers to check that changes to the code aren't going to cripple the live sites. See also: WP:WWD and WP:NOT.

As a result, administrator status is still not going to be given out to all and sundry. This isn't an arena for you to play with the tools, or mess about, nor is it somewhere you should be testing your bots, etc. - If you want a place that is for you to test out sysop tools, etc, try these sites.

Having said that, if you do need administrator status for a particular reason, request this status and ensure that your userpage here is linked to your home wiki project.

    @BlackWidowMovie0: An experienced sockpuppeteer, maybe. Your account was registered 26 days ago, the sockmaster account, PhilCoulson20, 4 months ago. You are blocked on the only wiki where you have done more than a hundred edits because of that, and have only now added this request to the appropriate page. In fact, you have not even read the Wikipedia:Requests/Permissions page, or are deliberately ignoring it, as it clearly states "testing out MediaWiki" is completely out of this project's scope. 𝟙𝟤𝟯𝟺𝐪𝑤𝒆𝓇𝟷𝟮𝟥𝟜𝓺𝔴𝕖𝖗𝟰 (𝗍𝗮𝘭𝙠) 23:14, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
  2. Strongest possible oppose On another TestWiki (http://testwiki.wiki) this user has received administrator rights, and had them removed countless times, has repeatedly requested these rights back on there, is currently blocked on there due to long-term abuse, and has been indeffed on English Wikipedia due to sockpuppetry.

    X mark.svg Not done lack of admin access on any other sites, see Wikipedia:Requests/Tools for a list of sites where you can test MediaWiki. Since you are indeffed on enwiki without talk page access, unless your script involves sending emails it shouldn't be possible to screw up anything on enwiki more so that already done. --DannyS712 (talk) 23:51, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

Closing rationale: I don't understand the need for +sysop flag, and you don't also have access anywhere else. The testwiki is for developers, not for third parties.

  • JesusMCarrasco (talkmessageemailcontribs (deletedglobal) • stalkCAmovessummarycountlogsblock logblockrights)
  • Motive for request: To help is the first thing that come to my mind, to help Wikipedia to keep growing and also to help so that Wikipedia keep on being the greatest free encyclopedia, not only for a couple of years but for the next ten, twenty years. As an administrator it would put me on the position to help others to understand how to apply their knowledge and aspirations in most positive way! I truly believe that most of the people that comes to edit, translate or write code at any of Wikipedia sisters sites, they’re here in good faith and a lot of them knows little on how to help but see the good thing is that they’re here, and either we can help them to reach their potential or the can be punished for making an honest mistake. It’s up to you to give me that opportunity, I can also code Python and JavaScript, I’m learning PHP, I hope that you will and I look forward to working along side all of you nice people, blessing and good vibes to you JesusMCarrasco (talk) 01:42, 6 December 2020 (UTC)
  • Requested rights: Administrator
  • Comments: I have had the opportunity to work with good administrators, some are a little to quick to punish with out a good explanation or without the help for someone to improve. Actually I come in contact with more admins because I speak several languages and I have translated in all of them, but is all good, some are good and some are better!
  • X mark.svg Not done @JesusMCarrasco: to just try out administrative tools you can use one of the sites listed here: Wikipedia:Requests/Tools. Xaosflux (talk) 16:58, 22 December 2020 (UTC)

Naleksuh


@Xaosflux: This request was not for "experimenting with admin tools", it is because I am a developer and working on under the scope of Wikimedia. That page is entirely useless here. In fact, I specifically mentioned this in the nomination rationale so I'm not sure how it was missed. Naleksuh (talk) 00:53, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
@Naleksuh: can you use the mw:Beta cluster? Anyone that writes a patch is a "developer" - that doesn't mean they should be developing on the production cluster though. Xaosflux (talk) 02:42, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
@Xaosflux: Not that I am developing MediaWiki-- yes that stuff needs to go to the beta cluster. I am developing a tool that actions on Wikimedia events. That is supposed to be what this test wiki is for, right? Naleksuh (talk) 02:49, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
@Naleksuh: I don't see a linked account for you for any developer work you've done - can you link to your phab/dev accounts? What do you need sysop access for - simply writing an external tool wouldn't normally need that type of access. Xaosflux (talk) 03:01, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
@Xaosflux: As you have requested to see [1] however the account has not been used that much and this only pertains to development of MediaWiki and some of its extensions/skins so this information will not be seen there.. The tool I am writing actions on Wikimedia events such as blasting a particular user or page being edited as needed. I also want to implement information about blocks which requires sysop access on a Wikimedia project (as I do not have sysop access on any Wikimedia projects, I asked here; in addition to Test Wiki describing itself as the appropriate place for this use case on the Main Page).
I hope this has answered your questions. Naleksuh (talk) 03:15, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
None of what you said appears to be Wikimedia specific - only mediawiki specific. I have no idea what "blasting" is, can you point to some documentation of a wikimedia specific implementation of "blasting"? Running mediawiki instances are available on the Wikipedia:Requests/Tools list. Xaosflux (talk) 03:26, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
@Xaosflux: I am refering to things like https://xtools.wmflabs.org/ , https://stream.wikimedia.org , and other stuff specifically ground to Wikimedia. Naleksuh (talk) 03:30, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
@Naleksuh: I'm still not seeing a reason you need sysop access on a production cluster, perhaps another admin will vouch for your need - I'll leave this open for a bit more. Xaosflux (talk) 12:11, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

  • Motive for request: I need to import some templates from cawiki to test. I want to test the templates before importing it to mlwiki.-Gnoeee (talk) 19:07, 1 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Requested rights: Import and Template editor right
  • Comments:
    • @Gnoeee: Hi. I have  granted the template editor right, as it's a valid use case and you're an administrator on Wikidata. You probably need to be an importer to be able to upload things from cawiki, but you should file a request at Metawiki, since local admins/'crats can't add users to/remove them from the importer group.

  • X mark.svg Not done as to importer, you can just copy-paste load those in and request deletion when done. (xmlimport can be dangerous). Xaosflux (talk) 00:05, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

  • Motive for request: Hello! I am an translation administrator on Meta, Wikidata and Commons. Since there are some cases, where translation markup is a bit difficult, it might be helpful to try things out here on test wikipedia. I especially want to use the right for translateable templates that include other templates, because they are not so easy to prepare and mark for translation. Best regards --Ameisenigel (talk) 14:50, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
