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.

The following request has been closed by --Az1568 (talk) 01:43, 12 May 2019 (UTC) as Yes check.svg Done.
Closing rationale: See below
  • Jeropbrenda (talkmessageemailcontribs (deletedglobal) • stalkCAmovessummarycountlogsblock logblockrights)
  • Motive for request: I'm an Outreachy intern at Wikimedia working on documentation improvements to the MediaWiki Action API. Part of my work is to include Python code samples in the documentation to demonstrate the usage of the API and we query Test Wikipedia for that. I need the admin rights because most of the API modules require special permissions in order to get the intended response, which needs to be included in the documentation. My internship ends on 20th August, and I'd probably not need the administrator rights after that.
  • Requested rights: Administrator
  • Comments:
@JSutherland (WMF) and Kbrown (WMF): Can one of you confirm this editor is working for the foundation as an intern and needs access? Thanks! Cameron11598 (talk) 16:48, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
@Jeropbrenda: Yes check.svg Done. Verifed membership in Outreachy Round 18 and rights granted until August 20th. --Az1568 (talk) 01:41, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

The following request has been closed by Xaosflux (talk) 11:28, 15 April 2019 (UTC) as Yes check.svg Done.
Closing rationale: See below
  • Aldnonymous (talkmessageemailcontribs (deletedglobal) • stalkCAmovessummarycountlogsblock logblockrights)
  • Motive for request: Hello, I want to compare usability of langswitch when being compared with Translation extension for transclusion. I also need Admin bits for deletion of translation subpages. Thank you.
  • Requested rights: Temporary-Admin, Temporary-Translation-Admin (preferably 1 month)
  • Comments: Yes check.svg Done @Aldnonymous: I've set to indefinite, if you don't need anymore let me know and I'll remove (or if you are trying to test something with expiration). Xaosflux (talk) 11:28, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

SD0001

The following request has been closed by MusikAnimal talk 20:38, 16 May 2019 (UTC) as Yes check.svg Done.
Closing rationale: Per discussion. No cause for concern
  • SD0001 (talkmessageemailcontribs (deletedglobal) • stalkCAmovessummarycountlogsblock logblockrights)
  • Motive for request: I am requesting this right to work on a script for admins to undelete pages per requests at w:WP:RFUD, for which I need access to Special:Undelete. Though I do not have any advanced rights on other wikis, English Wikipedia interface administrators Amorymeltzer and MusikAnimal can vouch for my work on the Twinkle gadget (25 PRs merged till now, 9 pending), including on its sysop-only batch-delete and batch-undelete modules. The admin bit would be of help in this work as well.
  • Requested rights: Administrator
  • Comments: Absolutely endorse this — SD0001 has been hugely productive contributing to Twinkle, writing some of the most complex and involved additions lately and generally being very involved. Their lack of ability to test and develop as a sysop usually just means more work for me. SD0001 may not have sufficient en-wiki experience to justify the tools there, but they're trying to do good work and I trust them not to abuse or break test-wiki. ~ Amory (utc) 09:50, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

G(x)

  • G(x) (talkmessageemailcontribs (deletedglobal) • stalkCAmovessummarycountlogsblock logblockrights)
  • Motive for request: Thai Wikipedia is currently discussing the implementation of some editing restrictions with users and IPs, such as abuse filter and partial block. I am looking to test the feature in the controlled environment. Although I relinquished my sysop flag several years ago, I still participate in some discussion with the Thai Wikipedia community, and I hope the test results could contribute to such discussion. Thanks. --G(x) (talk) 04:37, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Requested rights: Administrator
  • Comments: @G(x): I'll add you for temporary access based on your prior sysop access. Xaosflux (talk) 00:05, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
