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.

@Xaosflux: yes I have multi-factor authentication enabled on my global account. thank you --Omar2040 (talk) 11:08, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
 Done @Omar2040: please edit with care - if you make new gadgets they should not be on by default; if you must test something in a global js/css page (e.g. MediaWiki:common.js) be sure to remove it when you are not actively testing (it is almost always better to use a user-scoped page for these tests) - and don't edit other people's user scoped js/css pages without good cause.

@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)

Pseudo Classes

  • Pseudo Classes (talkmessageemailcontribs (deletedglobal) • stalkCAmovessummarycountlogsblock logblockrights)
  • Motive for request: I need to import template from zhwiki to test. By the way, I have these rights in zhwiki.
  • Requested rights: Transwiki importer and template editor
  • Comments:
    @Pseudo Classes: I don't think 'crats and admins can grant the transwiki importer right (per Special:UserGroupRights); I think you should ask stewards.
    I have  granted the template editor right, since you have it on zhwiki and you intend to work with templates (and templatestyles - template editors on testwiki can edit the content model of a page). Ahmadtalk 00:37, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
    @Ahmad252: Thanks. Pseudo Classes (talk) 05:11, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
  • @Pseudo Classes: you don't really need to go through the transwiki process here, just copy-paste your templates and leave an edit summary where they came from. Tag for speedy deletion if no longer needed. Xaosflux (talk) 16:08, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
    @Xaosflux: I see. However, sometimes I need to use the "Include all templates" function and thus the efficiency of copying and pasting may be slower than using this function. Pseudo Classes (talk) 16:28, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

PythonSwarm

  • PythonSwarm (talkmessageemailcontribs (deletedglobal) • stalkCAmovessummarycountlogsblock logblockrights)
  • Motive for request: I am requesting this right to use Huggle, AWB, and other WMF projects freely for debug. I am also requesting access to the translation admin toolset to be able to debug the translation function. I am active on enwiki and made over 400 edits, and on mw site. I am also a developer of Huggle, and ORES which requires rollback and AWB.
  • Requested rights: Administrator
  • Comments: X mark.svg Not done, to experiment with administrator tools please see this list of sites: Wikipedia:Requests/Tools. Xaosflux (talk) 17:59, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
What contributions have you also made into Huggle or ORES? I don't see anything on a quick look and as you've been previously told planning to become one does not count. Majavah (talk) 18:39, 1 September 2020 (UTC)
@Majavah: I am working on the isRevPatrolled function in ORES.

Awesome Aasim

  • Awesome Aasim (talkmessageemailcontribs (deletedglobal) • stalkCAmovessummarycountlogsblock logblockrights)
  • Motive for request: I would like admin rights so I can import templates for testing. I am not an admin on the English Wikipedia, and I do not intend to experiment with the tools on this test wiki. I am only using it so I can test API calls and my own user scripts (and maybe system messages). I would also like to test scripts that use "Rollback".
  • Requested rights: Administrator
  • Comments: X mark.svg Not done you can just copy-paste scripts to test and flag for deletion when done, just leave attribution in the edit summary. I've added rollback for you. Xaosflux (talk) 17:58, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

Jackmcbarn

  • Jackmcbarn (talkmessageemailcontribs (deletedglobal) • stalkCAmovessummarycountlogsblock logblockrights)
  • Motive for request: To test changes to gadgets and global CSS before they're implemented on the production wikis
  • Requested rights: interface administrator
  • Comments: @Jackmcbarn: we don't normally extend this to those that are not otherwise int-admins on production projects already, the mw:Beta Cluster (for final-stage testing of new features) may be a better choice for you. (Please ping if replying). Xaosflux (talk) 17:56, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
    @Xaosflux: We don't? Of the 22 users who are interface admins here, 7 of them (Eugene233, Frimelle, Hadyelsahar, Nikerabbit, RadiX, SBassett (WMF), and SD0001) aren't on any other wiki. Jackmcbarn (talk) 18:07, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
    @Jackmcbarn: like I mentioned, "normally", considering from your list: 3 of those are working on a specific project with another int-admin, 1 is a steward, 1 is an WMF employee, 1 is a bureaucrat on a content wiki working on a specific phab ticket, that leaves 1 person that has temporary access for some gadget development. Will leave open if for additional review. While waiting, please note that as this is part of the production WMF deployment, all int-admins require 2FA to be activated on their SUL accounts, do you have 2FA activated? Xaosflux (talk) 18:23, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
    @Xaosflux: Yes, I have 2FA activated. Jackmcbarn (talk) 18:24, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
     Done @Jackmcbarn: I've added temporary access for gadget development, do not add any new default-gadgets or edit other users css/js pages (other than alt-accounts you control). Be sure to clean up after yourself for any site-wide css/js tests (e.g. to common.js, vector.css, etc). Feel free to request a renewal if you have been using this when it is coming up for expiration.

Dmehus

  • Dmehus (talkmessageemailcontribs (deletedglobal) • stalkCAmovessummarycountlogsblock logblockrights)
  • Motive for request: I need to request temporary translation administrator user rights for the limited purpose of testing something in my sandbox, to determine if the bug that displays the <translate></translate> tags in Firefox is a bug within part of the MediaWiki software or Miraheze's local implementation of it. One or two days should be sufficient.
  • Requested rights: Translation administrator
  • Comments:  Done Xaosflux (talk) 01:20, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
    Thanks, @Xaosflux:. I've mostly completed my testing. Using Google Chrome or a Chromium-based web browser, such as Vivaldi, the <translate></translate> tags do not appear when I have marked User:Dmehus/sandbox for translation and, on here on the Test Wikipedia, they do not in the latest Firefox version as well. However, the test is not conclusive yet because on Miraheze's Public Test Wiki, for this deleted talk page, the tags do appear in Firefox yet on the interface message in MediaWiki: namespace, they do not. I'm wondering if you can either (a) temporarily grant me interface administrator privileges on Test Wikipedia for a short time (expiring no later than July 20th, 2020) so that I can create a new page notice and mark it for translation (also extending my translationadmin permissions for the same timeframe), or (b) create a new page notice, mark it for translation, so that I can call up that page notice on a non-existent page (say, User:Dmehus/sandbox2)? After that, I should have all the data I need for the purposes of tracking down this bug. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 20:37, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: IAdmin shouldn't be required, I've added admin and extended tadmin. Xaosflux (talk) 22:52, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
@Xaosflux: Thanks. I didn't realize editinterface was included within administrator on Test Wikipedia. That should be sufficient. Thanks again. Dmehus (talk) 01:34, 13 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi, on bnwiki we have 3K of non-free files' revision that needs to be deleted. It's impossible to do that by hand, so I requested user:Nokib Sarkar to write a script for that. He wrote a script but it's giving some error. For debuging purpose & testing, please give him sysop right. --আফতাবুজ্জামান (talk) 00:29, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
