Wikipedia:Requests for adminship and bot approval

  • en: Requests for the bot flag should be made on this page. This wiki uses the standard bot policy, and allows global bots and automatic approval of certain types of bots. Other bots should apply below, and then request access from a steward if there is no objection.

    Requests for the administrator flag on the Tigrinya Wikipedia should also be made on this page. Anyone can add a request here. The request will be granted if there are more support than oppose votes. In perspective these rules will be hardened. You must be a native speaker and you must have at least 100 edits in Tigrinya Wikipedia to be an Admin. For more information, see Wikipedia:Administrators.

Requests for adminship[edit source]

Administrators[edit source]

ብላይክ [edit source]

  • candidate's words:

I edit in Tigrinya. I would translate the entire interface.

Support (+)[edit source]

Oppose (-)[edit source]

  1. Oppose. I do not think you would make a good admin at this time. Looking at your contributions, I see that you have put profanity on your user talkpage. You also put profanity on an IP's talkpage, then replaced it with a request to vote for you. Admins especially have to be more sensitive and diplomatic than to use profanity for no apparent reason. You also cast three votes for yourself, but all three in the name of User:YonasB, who is another user besides you, with only 3 edits to his name, the last being over a year ago. Aside from all this, it is not evident from your contributions on this account, that you have ever written one word in Tigrinya.
    1. Now, we might assume that you are the same as User:Blake who has indeed edited in Tigrinya, because your name ብላይክ is a rough approximation of the pronunciation of Blake (though not an exact one), and it also matches the signature for that account. But we cannot even know this for sure, other than to assume. There have also been some perplexing edits from both these accounts (Blake and ብላይክ) on the Amharic wikipedia, although I realize you probably do not know much Amharic. At any rate, for the moment I have more questions than anything else. Regards, am:User:Codex Sinaiticus

  3. Strong oppose. --ቶጎሩባ 13:08, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Neutral ( )[edit source]

  1. Neutral because someone was cracking my password because my password is weak and I couldn't log in. I chose another user name. Regards, Blake.

Thank you! --it:User:Pipep 17:57, 26 ነሓሰ 2007 (UTC)

Not done, local policy described at the top of this page requires that "You must be a native speaker and you must have at least 100 edits in Tigrinya Wikipedia if you want to". If that only applies to adminship, that needs to be clarified before further bot requests on this wiki can be granted. 207.162.58.44
Done, policy fixed with local implementation of the standard bot policy. Pathoschild 01:13, 21 መስከረም 2007 (UTC)

Bot policy[edit source]

Hello. To facilitate steward granting of bot access, I'd like to implement the standard bot policy on this wiki. This will involve creating a redirect to this page from Project:Bot policy, and adding a line at the top noting that it is used here. In particular, this policy allows automatic acceptance of known interlanguage linking bots (if this page says that is acceptable), which form the vast majority of such requests.

Note that, unless explicitly stated otherwise, this policy will remove the requirement that bot operators be native ትግርኛ speakers (that requirement will only apply to administrators).

Please read the text at m:Bot policy before commenting. If you object, please say so; it will be implemented in one week if there is no objection, since it is particularly written to streamline bot requests on wikis with little or no community interested in bot access requests. Pathoschild 21:12, 12 መስከረም 2007 (UTC)

I know an over-literal interpretation of the first paragraph might suggest bot operators must speak Tigrinya, but this hardly could have been the intended meaning. 70.105.30.46 13:15, 15 መስከረም 2007 (UTC)
That is why I'll correct that unless somebody objects. Pathoschild 17:19, 15 መስከረም 2007 (UTC)
Beat you to it... 70.105.30.46 14:06, 16 መስከረም 2007 (UTC)
Implemented. Pathoschild 23:47, 20 መስከረም 2007 (UTC)

Global bots[edit source]

Hello. The standard bot policy was updated to allow global bots, which are now technically possible. These are trusted bots that will be given bot access on every wiki that allows global bots (the local policy or request page must explicitly allow them, or they won't get access on this wiki). The current requirements for global bots are:

  • a global bot must only maintain interlanguage links or fix double-redirects;
  • a global bot must have already been active on several wikis, with long-term contributions demonstrating its trustworthiness.

Does anyone object to allowing global bots on this wiki? I'll update the local policy in a week if there are no objections. Thanks. —Pathoschild 18:03:34, 28 ሓምለ 2008 (UTC)

Done. —Pathoschild 07:48:27, 10 ሚያዝያ 2009 (UTC)
