    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.
    • Remember to update Meta:RecentChanges/Requests with a link to your request.

    Group: Administrator
    Reason: Hello all, I'd like to request for adminship on Meta. I'm an active member of the Interwiki administrator group here on Meta, have enough cross-wiki experience. As I’m frequently patrolling recent changes on Meta (Being a patroller here too), it would be quite useful to be able to speedy delete nonsense page creations & spam or block vandals & LTAs. I am probably not the most active on this wiki, however I hang out a lot in IRC and could help people in more urgent situations there.--  Joseph  TB  CT  CA  12:53, 2 February 2023 (UTC)

    Questions for candidate[edit source]

    Discussion[edit source]

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

    1. Symbol strong support vote.svg Strong support - Already trusted user as global interwiki administrator. by Buehl106 ·Talk·e-mail 13:17, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      This comment has nothing to do with this particular request but as a general note I don't how trusting someone enough to be global interwiki administrator has anything to do with Meta sysop. The two roles are completely different and one has significantly more responsibilities and discretion required. Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:00, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    2. Thank you for volunteering! I agree that you're very active in the interwiki-admin work however, on Meta, there's not really much of a need for additional administrators at the moment. If you're interested in volunteering in another role which requires assistance, I would advise applying for Global rollbacker instead when you've got more cross-wiki vandalism experience as you primarily seek to apply for sysop in order to help in vandalism which is great.

    3. Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg Strong oppose I agree with NotAracham, Naleksuh, Agent Isai and change my vote. If you apply for a Global Rollbacker, I will gladly vote for it, but there are enough administrators in Meta and more seems unnecessary to me.

      @HeyTürkiye: I didn't vote to support Ugochimobi. I just commented that we don't need more admins and to apply for something else instead. Agent Isai Talk to me! 17:58, 3 February 2023 (UTC) Reply[reply]
      @Agent Isai: Hm, I think there was a translation error, I'm sorry. I decided to change my vote for Ugochimobi from Symbol full support vote.svg Strongest support to Symbol strong support vote.svg Strong support, so I changed my vote for Ugochimobi from Strongest to Strong, inspired by your advice. Best regards, Hey Türkiye Message? 18:05, 3 February 2023 (UTC) Reply[reply]
      The templates don't affect the result at all, the strength comes from the discussion. I also don't agree there is "no need" for more sysops (both in the sense that there is no maximum number and in the fact that there is a shortage of action).

    4. I still cannot forget this.--MrJaroslavik (talk) 18:25, 3 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    5. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Not a personal opposition to the requester but as Agent said, we already have more Meta admins than are needed though there's some debate on this point. In either case, help in other roles would be more useful at this time.
      Assessing the candidate's actual merit, I have seen them work well in the interwiki administrator role, but there are also some concerns regarding past behavior with canvassing for a role as well as a leadership dispute on Famepedia that aren't recent but worth considering.
      If there is a proven need, I'll put some thought into what would be necessary to move my vote to support.
