Requests for Permissions

This page is for requesting permissions that can be granted on this wiki.

  • For rights that don't add advanced permissions (like autopatrolled and confirmed) please just leave a note on Meta:Administrators' noticeboard.
  • For rights on another wiki, please take up the matter with the local community.

Here you can leave requests for the following permissions. The community will discuss your request and then a bureaucrat or Steward will close the request, granting rights upon closure of successful requests.


  • In most cases, Rights may only be granted after a request lasted for at least 7 days, and no less than 70% of the votes (only support and oppose are votes) are support votes. Some permissions have their own criteria.
  • Although anonymous users may express their opinions, logging out to leave additional comments or otherwise abusing multiple accounts (including IP addresses), is not allowed.
  • CheckUser and Oversight rights will not be granted except under exceptional circumstances. Please leave a note on the Stewards' noticeboard if you would like more information.

Dmehus - Revocation of Sysop Rights[edit source]

うざっきー (sysop)[edit source]

WikiJS (Wiki creator) - 2[edit source]

MarioMario456 (Wiki creator)[edit source]

うざっきー (Wiki creator)[edit source]

User: うざっきー (contributionsCAblocks logrights logglobal rights log)
Group: Wiki creator
Reason: Since there are few wiki creators who understand Japanese, we will run for wiki creators.

Once you become a wiki creator, we will create a wiki with the following in mind.

  • On wikis that sometimes write about people, make sure you don't write about people who aren't famous.

I check this site more than 3 times a week, so I think it will be a little faster than it is now (especially for applications by Japanese people). Everyone, please vote and comment. --UzakkytalklogMWpedia(my cite)) 10:20, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

Additional comments:


Other users feel free to support/oppose/abstain from this RfP but please state your reasoning below.

  1. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose You have not demonstrated your understanding of the CP and "check[ing] this site more than 3 times a week" is nowhere compared to existing Wiki Creators (at least the ones who are still active). This is your second RfP and I feel like you are busy hat collecting. R4356th 3,323 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 11:31, 1 May 2021 (UTC)
    • R4356th How can you make that assessment of the user's understanding of Content Policy without asking them questions? Why not ask them questions first, prior to just putting up a templated !vote, as you have done in the past? This seems like a failure to assume good faith by pointing at English Wikipedia essays (which, interestingly, is the documentation for when to use a hatnote in an English Wikipedia article).

      • I do not get why I need to ask questions before commenting here when the reason clearly states this- "Once you become a wiki creator, we will create a wiki with the following in mind. On wikis that sometimes write about people, make sure you don't write about people who aren't famous." I do not get what "we" is supposed to mean here (my guess is they are not fluent in English and that is understandable) but obviously that is not what the CP says. We are not Wikipedia, we allow wikis to write about infamous people and entities. Regarding the WP essay, it is blindingly obvious that I meant to link w:WP:HATSHOP. Now, to sum all that up, could you please refrain from attacking me with nonsense because of your personal grievance regarding me speaking up against you? Regards.

        • I have no personal grievance, and did not "attack" you as you claim. I'm just curious why you put up a !vote comment before asking the user some situation-based or other relevant/pertinent questions that help assess whether the user understands Content Policy and can interpret requests accordingly since, as you note, English is not likely first language, so it holds that they would not necessarily demonstrate their understanding of Content Policy in their initial wiki request. I'm not saying, either, that this is something unique to you or anything, but rather, just an observation and a comment that it would be nice if we could see a period (of a day or two) where users ask relevant/pertinent questions, wait for the responses from the requesting user, and then proceed to the casting their opinions on the candidate.

  2. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't really believe you are ready for this right. DuchessTheSponge (talk) 15:33, 1 May 2021 (UTC)
  3. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Checking 3 times a week is not really enough. Currently some requests are handled in seconds as the current wiki creators are checking meta multiple times per day.. Also, it seems like this is possible hat collecting.
