Well, let's see. I started helping this project a few weeks ago when Pmlinediter mentioned it on IRC (heh, if this was RfA i'd be slaughtered for saying that word. ;)). I'd never worked on Wikibooks before, and as there's so much here to be written, it looked great. So I started contributing. I've written a few pages on topics such as card games, Cookbook, music, and intend to continue. I've got about 130 edits and contribute frequently, and would use the extra tools mostly for some page moving where a redirect is really not required (suppressredirect). Another admin to help fight the small amount of vandalism we receive would be helpful too, I monitor the rc feed on irc.wikimedia.org and can usually pick up vandalism edits as they are made.

Hi, i'm requesting bureaucrat access at this wiki. The SEWB community has expanded considerably over the past few weeks, now with about 7-10 active users, and i think we've gotten to the size where we could do with some bureaucrats, instead of being dependent on the stewards at Meta for things like +sysoping and bot requests. I'm among the most active users here (i usually check the RC at least a few times a day), so I would likely be able to respond to any bureaucrat tasks in a timely manner. I have bureaucrat access at SEWQ and the English Wikinews, so i already am familiar with what bureaucrats do. :-) Regardless of this RfB's result, i'm here to stay. Thanks for your consideration, Tempodivalse [talk] 00:42, 14 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]

  • Support - We need a bureaucrat. Maximillion Pegasus (talk) 00:47, 14 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]
  • Support a local bureaucrat. If needed I can run for this right as well. –Juliancolton | Talk 00:48, 14 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose I really hate to oppose anyone, especially someone who's helped so much with the WB namespace of this project so much. It's really not that I don't trust you, I truly do believe that you'd be a good judge of consensus and trust you and everything. It's really your lack of mainspace contribs. I don't intend to sound like a certain anger-filled page, it's just that in all seriousness, to save this project (it's up for being closed), we need contributions in the mainspace, new books/pages and the like. You just don't have those, you make spelling corrections and other gnomey things (that's extremely helpful, btw) but at the moment we need our active contributors to get into building our content rather then worrying about our project side. Meta can handle our requests for the moment, we have no active bots and everyone here has SUL so no one will really need renaming atm. A week or so of full, mainspace contributions and I'd have absolutely no problem supporting you. Just my two cents. GrooveDog (talk) 01:12, 14 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose Well really per GrooveDog. Please contribute to the mainspace first. This vote might change if you do such work. Pmlineditor  08:12, 14 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]
    Okay. Groovedog brings up a good point that mainspace expansion, rather than admin-related maintenance, is needed to help save the wiki from closure. I'll try to create some new books, thanks for the suggestion. :-) Cheers Tempodivalse [talk] 13:28, 14 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]
    No hard feelings or anything. :) Just that atm we really don't need to be worrying about new sysops/bureaucrats, we need to worry about how long this project will last. We have 400 pages in the mainspace, and I just feel as if the people representing this wiki as leaders (bureaucrats) need to demonstrate that we are indeed trying to help. Thanks, GrooveDog (talk) 20:48, 14 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose per GD. Razorflame (talk) 03:43, 19 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Result: Not promoted. Sorry, but there is no consensus to promote. Pmlineditor  07:54, 25 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Maximillion Pegasus

Maximillion Pegasus is an active editor here, and i think he can be trusted with admin privs, being an admin at SEWT and SEWQ. As such, i'm nominating him for the position - and we can never have too many admins. :-) Tempodivalse [talk] 18:27, 14 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Do you accept my nom? Tempodivalse [talk] 18:27, 14 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Hi all, I'm requesting access to the sysop tools so I can help with various maintenance tasks, including blocking open proxies and simplifying MediaWiki pages. I'm somewhat active here, and I check in once or twice a day to look for unproductive edits. I'm an admin at multiple wikis, including the English Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons, so I do have quite a bit of experience with adminship. Thanks, –Juliancolton | Talk 00:29, 14 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Well, TDV said most of it for me. I'm sufficiently active in the mainspace (48% of my edits) and have been simplifying the MW interface. I'm a sysop on simplewp and a crat on simplequote, and I'd like to help out. Thank you, Pmlineditor  08:33, 14 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]

  • Support Trusted. Tempodivalse [talk] 13:28, 14 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]
  • Support - Yes, we definitely need a local bureaucrat. Maximillion Pegasus (talk) 18:24, 14 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]
  • NeutralFor the sole reason that imo at the "stage" our community is at we don't really need a bureaucrat. This is really the "other half" of my oppose to TDV, imo Meta can handle requests that crats do if we need them. We have the standard bot policy (automatic approval pretty much), no one needs to be renamed and sysops are few. I like that you've contributed more to the mainspace but at the same time we need more pages written then sysops promoted. As with TDV as well, I fully trust you to not abuse this tool but I can't support because honestly we don't need a crat right now. GrooveDog (talk) 03:31, 15 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]
Just one thing, we currently have 4 RfXes. In the past 2-3 weeks, we've had 7 RfXes compared to about 1 previously, ie, the number has doubled. Being a crat does not create problems in article writing. If we have RfXes, then if a crat closes it, it will be easier than going to meta - making a request etc. etc. I like keeping things local. Pmlineditor  10:08, 15 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]
Well done on answering the hidden question. :) Change to Support. GrooveDog (talk) 12:57, 15 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Hello friends. I am requesting +sysop here. I am an administrator at the English Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, Simple Wikiquote, am a member of the foundations OTRS team, and have rollback rights on a number of other simple projects. I am requesting the tools primarily to assist with responding to cross-wiki vandalism, along with blocking open proxies. Thank you for your consideration, Tiptoety talk 02:35, 4 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, I'm Pmlinediter and I'd like to request sysop here. I'm a sysop at SEWP and SEWQ and have got experience with the bit. I'm fairly experienced here to and would like to assist the other sysops. Also, on a side note, I wonder WHY 2 others requested sysop exactly when I was going to :P Pmlineditor  05:17, 4 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Hallo, i'm requesting administrator status here. Although there's no current pressing need for extra sysops, there have been several times in the past when either I or another user have needed administrator attention, but could not get a response from either of the two semi-active sysops for a long time. I check in here at least a few times a day, and could easily react to vandalism and other admin tasks that the other sysops might miss. I'm a bureaucrat at en.wikinews and simple.wikiquote, and an admin at several other wikis, so i can probably be trusted not to abuse the bits. :-) Thanks for your time, Tempodivalse 02:50, 4 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]

This discussion has finished. The result was rollback granted


I'm not by any means the most active editor here, and I don't plan on becoming one. However, I would like access to the rollback tool to use during the occasional vandalism attacks. I have prior experience with adminship on three WMF projects. If rollback is ever locally enabled (doubtful), I'd likely resign adminship. Thanks, –Juliancolton | Talk 05:22, 24 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]

  • I never said I wanted to block new "users". I said we should block automatically-created malbots. Moreover, I don't intend to do any blocking here; I simply want rollback. –Juliancolton | Talk 16:07, 24 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]
I just gave you rollback rights :-) Are still running for admin? Abigor 17:50, 26 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you! In that case, I withdraw this request. Cheers. –Juliancolton | Talk 17:52, 26 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Adminship restored by a steward. Juliancolton 19:16, 21 April 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Hello friends,

I would like to ask you to restore my rights here on simple.wikibooks. I am back for a month or so and missed my tools multible times when reverting vandalism or tagging test articles for speedy delete.

I let a steward remove my right beter a period of inactitety and I was in that period not thinking about coming back. I am still a administrator on Commons a administrator and bureaucrat on Incubator. I hope nobody opposes in restoring my flags (admin and importer)

Best regards, Abigor 08:59, 21 April 2009 (UTC)[reply]

American Eagle

Hello all! I am User:American Eagle ( talk edit watch contribs history links logs localspace delete block ), I am requesting to be granted the +sysop flag, firstly, because I know how to be an administrator, and have much experience in that field (with hundreds of deletions, tens of blocks, etc.). Secondly, I plan to help fight vandalism (with rollback, especially), delete pages, block vandals if needed, etc. on Simple English Wikibooks (as there are only two active admins currently), and also to work on protected/MediaWiki: pages. Finally, I am doing this because adminship isn't a big deal. I hope to help this community grow, and the Delete|Block|Protect buttons will only help in that expedition. Thank you. :) TheAE talk 23:34, 24 March 2009 (UTC)[reply]

  • Support Sure, why not? No reasons not to promote this user. Cheers, Razorflame 23:38, 24 March 2009 (UTC)[reply]
  • Although there's no big reason to deny the flag to AE, there is virtually no third-time-vandalism needing a block, pages are deleted often, and rollback isn't really needed (it's only one click more!). Although I am not very active on-wiki, I monitor the Recent Changes feed, and delete pages as soon as I come across them. According to vvv's edit counter (with a replag of 5 or so days), you only have 75 edits. Maybe you should expand them first? Regards, Microchip08 (talk) 17:52, 25 March 2009 (UTC)[reply]
On Simple English Wikiquote, which receives even less vandalism than Simple English Wikibooks, I have over 440+ deletions (see here), as well as many other administrative actions (totaling 687). I did this with virtually no vandalism at all. Even though I may not only use it for vandalism, MC8, I still have much use of the tool. And I also had a low edit count when I became an administrator on Simple English Wikiquote, but it gradually added up. TheAE talk 18:50, 25 March 2009 (UTC)[reply]
Personally, I feel that I have the deletions front covered (although I may be wrong). Other admin actions are rarely needed, so why do we need another administrator? Regards, Microchip08 (talk) 19:12, 25 March 2009 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, you do a good job of keeping on top of things. But that wasn't really my point. I mean, I use the administrator tools for non-vandalism as well. I use it to delete and protect projects I work on, and it would be such a waste to add {{delete}} to all 440+ (as above) deletions. It is just a few tools that I use fairly often, and can help with if needed, not really that another administrator is desperately needed. TheAE talk 19:41, 25 March 2009 (UTC)[reply]
A quick CTRL+F search of your contribs shows that "delete" only comes up once in an edit summary... so it's not fairly often that you use it on this wiki. Regards, Microchip08 (talk) 19:44, 25 March 2009 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry, re-reading that it sounds very cold. Regards, Microchip08 (talk) 19:45, 25 March 2009 (UTC)[reply]
I don't mind. My point is, adminship truly isn't a big deal. It really only is a few buttons given to those who will use it properly. Before becoming an administrator on Simple English Wikiquote, I didn't have many QDs (or Fast deletions) either. I just use it from time to time, and it would only be a benefit to the community, not a harm. TheAE talk 21:44, 25 March 2009 (UTC)[reply]
  1. Oppose you are to new, and there isn't a big nead for a new admin. Abigor 22:30, 25 March 2009 (UTC)[reply]


Microchip08 (talk)

Hi there, I'm User:Microchip08 ( talk edit watch contribs history links logs localspace delete block ), and I'd like to apply for administrator status on Simple English Wikibooks. I understand that there has already been a recent suucessful request for adminship, but there are several reasons I would like the flag/think I deserve the flag:

Please bear in mind that when using toolserver tools, there is a replag of around three or four weeks, so edits are pretty much out of sync! The replag should be fixed by mid-Febuary, according to the toolserver people.

I'm not an admin on any Wikimedia project, but I am trusted with the flag on various other wikis: Mibbit, SoGeekItHurts and YourWiki. I have c.5000 edits on all Wikimedia projects combined, and am trusted with rollback on English Wikipedia and Simple English Wikipedia, so I know how to use the flags (although I'm still going to test the tools in my userspace before I 'go live'!). I'm active on many IRC channels, so I can be reached quickly in an emergency.

Please consider my application, and please remember that this isn't a vote. Give reasons for your support, or your oppose. Thank-you. Regards, Microchip08 (talk) 10:18, 30 January 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Requested at meta. Regards, Microchip08 (talk) 21

Done, I am now an administrator. Thankyou for your support. Regards, Microchip08 (talk) 17

* Support - I am not inactive, my goat broke my finger and it hurts like hell so I am not able to type a lot on the moment. But you have my full support. Abigor 21:53, 1 February 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Is this a fair vote. I see voters with only 2 edits, with the first one here. And this wiki is very inactive. But you have 10 voters. We don't have so much different edittors here. Why did the come to vote here? Did you ask them? Abigor 21:35, 5 February 2.
Urgh. There were a few "go edit Wikibooks, please" in IRC, but some of these users (Ryan, Chenzw, Abigor, Ezra) weren't even on IRC at the time. Even if these users were discounted, we'd end up with BG7 [edited before RfA], Ezra, Maximillion, Abigor & possibly RyanCross. Therefore, it's still a pass, although it may push me down to a temp. adminship. You'll notice that a few of these tiny-edit editors also voted for Abigor. Regards, Microchip08 (talk) 21:40, 5 February 2009 (UTC)[reply]
I don't think the votes from three persons can count.
Malory : 1 edit this year on the rfa none edits in 2008.
Shapiros10  : First edit is your rfa, second one talkpage message.. No edits after that.
Chenzw : Inactive for almost a year, comes back and vote and no real edits after that.

You will stil pass the vote. Abigor 21:51, 5 February 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Utterly pathetic, Abigor. Seriously. I found this on my own. Majorly 22:12, 5 February 2009 (UTC)[reply]
I am not utterlu pathetic, I just find it very hard to believe that you will not edit for more than a year and than return to only make a vote. He will get the admin rights, I have no problem with that. But people who are not active on a project shouldn't vote on something. Abigor 22:22, 5 February 2009 (UTC)[reply]
That particular comment, Majorly, was a bit... harsh. Regards, Microchip08 (talk) 22:22, 5 February 2009 (UTC)[reply]
I didn't say you were pathetic, I said the comment was. What's wrong with supporting people? Like my vote will even change anything. Majorly 22:32, 5 February 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Result: A non-admin can close this because a steward has already promoted Microchip08. Congratulations on becoming an administrator MC8! Razorflame 17:22, 6 February 2009 (UTC)[reply]


This request was closed and the result was: Administrator status was granted. Sj 01:57, 22 January 2009 (UTC)[reply]


I am requesting administrator right on this nice wiki. The wiki is very small and there are not many edits a day. I am active here on a daily basis. And can react soon in case of Vandalism.

The lack of admins can cause problems for this wiki. I have requested steward help lattely because the speedy delete category was still full after 3 months. I hope the community grant me this extra rights, I am already a admin on Commons. Abigor 21:42, 14 January 2009 (UTC)[reply]
