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: 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. Ahmadtalk 11:07, 2 October 2020 (UTC)
  • 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)
