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.

  • JPxG (talkmessageemailcontribs (deletedglobal) • stalkCAmovessummarycountlogsblock logblockrights)
  • Motive for request: The ultimate cause for this request is that I want to be able to test out various advanced-permission tasks without setting up my own local MediaWiki instance (and on a wiki with settings as close to en.wp as possible). The proximate cause is that I want to test a modification to en:MediaWiki:Movepagetext that uses {{PAGENAME}}.
  • Requested rights: Administrator
  • Comments: For testing various permissions see this list of sites: Wikipedia:Requests/Tools that are dedicated to that sort of testing. We generally only +sysop developers or admins of other projects here, but I'll give to a temporary grant for your immediate testing. Be sure to clean up any tests that you add that can affect other people (such as to a system message). -- Xaosflux (foo/bar) talk 23:31, 29 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
