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.


Requests for user rights


All (current and archived)


Tahmid

  • Tahmid (talkmessageemailcontribs (deletedglobal) • stalkCAmovessummarycountlogsblock logblockrights)
  • Motive for request: I would like to test some user scripts that require sysop access. Also I will test some modules of enwiktionary. And I need to import those modules here (need importer right).
  • Requested rights: Administrator
  • Comments:  Done temporary to match term on bywiki (only WMF project with sysop) to 2021-12-18T06:39:52. -- Xaosflux (bar/foo) talk 09:39, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
    • @Tahmid: importer is not necessary, this is a testing site just copy/paste the things you need to test and delete them when you are done testing, if it is just a couple of pages that there is a good need for the revision history (such as if they will need to stay here for a long time) feel free to drop a note on my talk page and I'll xmlimport them for you. -- Xaosflux (foo/bar) talk 09:41, 19 July 2021 (UTC)

The following request has been closed by DannyS712 (talk) 01:24, 10 July 2021 (UTC) as Yes check.svg Done.
Closing rationale: Valid use case for admin rights, requestor already has sysop access on another WMF wiki, granted --DannyS712 (talk) 01:24, 10 July 2021 (UTC)

Closing rationale: See below

Novusistic

  • Novusistic (talkmessageemailcontribs (deletedglobal) • stalkCAmovessummarycountlogsblock logblockrights)
  • Motive for request: User is a student participant in Google Summer of Code 2021 (project is phab:T274635, specific proposal is phab:T279849) and will be creating a guided tour, which requires access to the MediaWiki namespace. I guess I can place a partial block for all the other MediaWiki-namespace pages (besides the page the student will be making) but they're trusted and that seems excessive.
  • Requested rights: Interface administrator (but not administrator; I'll handle cleanup). Fine with temp grant for the duration of the program (estimated to end in late August).
  • Comments: I am making this request for them. Enterprisey (talk!) 04:31, 22 June 2021 (UTC)
@Enterprisey: @Novusistic: just to clarify, the intended use is only for the creation of (and maintenance/changes to) a guided tour? My understanding is that tours are only loaded via url parameter, so this shouldn't affect users by default, and will be done under the supervision of Enterprisey. If this is indeed correct I'm happy to grant iadmin temporarily - seems like a valid use case to me. Please ping when replying (I don't check my testwiki watchlist enough) --DannyS712 (talk) 08:12, 29 June 2021 (UTC)
@DannyS712: yes, this is exclusively for the creation and maintenance of one guided tour. I'm not sure about the URL bit, but I'm just about certain no users will be affected by default. I will be supervising; I forgot to mention (sorry) that I'm one of the mentors for the project. And thanks for the reply. Enterprisey (talk!) 05:09, 30 June 2021 (UTC)
Okay,  Done for 2 months. @Novusistic: please remember to enable 2FA and to only use these rights as outlined above. @Enterprisey: thanks for supervising. --DannyS712 (talk) 05:19, 30 June 2021 (UTC)

Closing rationale: Per below

Tmv

  • Tmv (talkmessageemailcontribs (deletedglobal) • stalkCAmovessummarycountlogsblock logblockrights)
  • Motive for request: I was granted the administrator right a month ago. At that time, I was given the same time limit as the Japanese Wikivoyage admin right. However, my admin right has been extended on Japanese Wikivoyage. So please extend the expiration date of my admin right on testwiki. Thank you.
  • Requested rights: sysop
  • Comments:  Done Extended to 2022-03-31T23:59:00 to match. -- Xaosflux (foo/bar) talk 15:31, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

acagastya

  • acagastya (talkmessageemailcontribs (deletedglobal) • stalkCAmovessummarycountlogsblock logblockrights)
  • Motive for request: I need to test a script which is supposed to be run by someone with admin privs on viwp which will affect !5K files. Just to make sure the script is fool-proof, I would like to perform a small test here, before giving the script to a viwp admin. It should be noted, I am not an admin on viwp, however, I have admin bits on enwn.
