Promotion to sysop, translation admin, bureaucrat or anything not above (which can be assigned by bureaucrats)
Requests for comment and other miscellaneous requests
Any new flagging to +sysop should have an associated subpage here, except for well-established developers, where a developer is someone who has had changes accepted to the MediaWiki core or a MediaWiki extension where the total number of changed lines in the relevant whitespace-insensitive diffs exceeds 100.
One thing to keep in mind is that unlike most Wikimedia sites, this site is controlled by the MediaWiki developers, not the other users in this community. Being a developer (someone with merge access who uses it to maintain code that runs on Wikimedia sites) automatically entitles you to at least administrator status, and a long-time developer won't find it hard to become a bureaucrat. If you're not a developer, you do have to give some good reason to get any privileges; you should not expect to ever be made a bureaucrat. Something like a third of administrators and a quarter of bureaucrats are non-developers, however, so it's not like you shouldn't bother asking.
That said, there aren't really any formal policies on what's required: you just have to convince a bureaucrat. Use common sense―if you're trustworthy and your services are in need, there's no reason not to promote you to administrator at least, but don't ask for administrator without giving a concrete reason (unless you're a developer). Being personally known to a developer or having administrator or higher status on a major Wikimedia project are two ways to be deemed trustworthy.
Hi there, I'm in the process of translating many things to French but sometimes I can't create some pages because of the AbuseFilter... I hope that this right could help me to get rid of this limitation, but of course if it is not the case, feel free to give me some feedback :). I'm sysop on Commons and am translating lots of things there and on Meta too. -- AlNo (talk) 14:03, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
Hi, I can't seem to find any abuse filter log entries that indicate that a filter is troubling you, can you provide an example of a page that is causing you trouble? Typically, you shouldn't need to have translation administrator rights for just translating. —Mainframe98talk 16:05, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
Please keep an eye on Calvin. He's doing pretty much the same things here that got him blocked on Commons and enwiki. (Commons block just expired, but I imagine that won't last long..) Alexis Jazz (talk) 15:16, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
I deleted a few pages on impulse because they were added to Commons, but now I’m not so sure if there is consensus (by the Commons regulars) to have those files imported over there. Sorry, I wasn’t aware about this situation until an hour ago. Tropicalkitty (talk) 06:34, 6 October 2019 (UTC)
IMO, no issue here deleting the local files (screenshot of a web page of a Wikimedia Foundation project) which are already available on Commons and is acceptable. Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 07:38, 6 October 2019 (UTC)
I know @MarcoAurelio:. Like you, I'm subscriber of T235027 and T221119. I thought that I had already answered. Surely I haven't been explicit enough myself. A temporary solution was found by Shirayuki (topic link in Phab) and transcribed by Wargo, 7 days ago (he also add the task the same day). This is the "null edit". 6 days ago, this solution was repeated by Wladek92. He adds another solution: a 100% translated page shows the link of the language. Tacsipacsi adds a comment to this temporary solution.
@Dinoguy1000: For the technical staff of the site (admin, crats and TA), seeing the archives, it is apparently the right place to make this request. The other Project doesn't contain any such requests. Cordially. —Eihel (talk) 11:07, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
