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.

  • Motive for request: I'm a sysop, interface admin, and abusefilter manager on the Japanese Wikipedia. I've been using the Test Wiki to try out flag-requiring scripts like MassProtect and MassRevisionDelete, but the version of the mediawiki installed for the wiki isn't up-to-date and there're some things that I can't test there. An admin right here will help me develop those scripts a lot more easily. Thank you for your consideration. --Dragoniez (talk) 19:43, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Done @MPGuy2824: don't break the test wiki! You should limited your administrative tasks to those needed for this testing - feel free to delete/protect pages that you created, but leave other people's tests alone. No blocking users that aren't specifically involved in such a test, etc. -- Xaosflux (foo/bar) talk 01:33, 4 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Agreed. Thanks. MPGuy2824 (talk) 02:03, 4 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

X mark.svg Not done @TTP1233: in general we don't really need recent changes patrolling on this project; if someones edits are disruptive they likely need to be blocked as well. -- Xaosflux (foo/bar) talk 01:36, 4 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Motive for request: I'm a sysop and interface admin on svwiki. Admin rights would help me to try out scripts and gadget changes here before applying them on svwiki.
  • Requested rights: Administrator
  • Comments:
    • @JohanahoJ: Administrators don’t have the right to edit site CSS/JS here either. If for some reason you can’t test in your user space (please explain why!), you’ll need interface admin rights instead of regular admin rights. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 07:25, 24 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • Yes, I do think my user space here will suffice. What I meant was, that I need admin rights to test some scripts here before I make changes to scripts or gadgets on svwiki. / JohanahoJ (talk) 08:10, 24 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
