Request for Adminship[edit source]

Hi Alison, unfortunately I can't actually remember where I requested adminship the last time. Stupid question but would you be able to show me :) --MacTire02 10:04, 14 Jerrey Souree 2008 (UTC)

Here it is --> m:Steward requests/Permissions#Temporary permissions for emergency or technical purposes - you can basically re-paste your old one, change the dates, etc and point to the phenomenal amount of work you've done as temporary sysop here. Indicate that you are running an RfA and that there's still a lot of ongoing sysop work to be done here. Also point to this diff which should help, and indicates my support, being an ex-temp sysop and regular member of the community here. Ádh mór ort ;) - Alison 10:09, 14 Jerrey Souree 2008 (UTC)
T'eh jeant nish. All done now. Just sit back and wait I guess. Thanks for the support on the admin request. Much appreciated! :) --MacTire02 10:20, 14 Jerrey Souree 2008 (UTC)
And you're done! Excellent. BTW - I finished up all the botwork trivia last night, too - Alison 17:04, 14 Jerrey Souree 2008 (UTC)

Clowan:Earroo Gaelgeyryn[edit source]

Hi Alison, I noticed you added a {{Rolleyimraaghyn}} template to the {{Earroo Gaelgeyryn}} template. Is this necessary, as the page the template will be used on already has a references template? I am currently working on an article in my sandbox and I noticed that due to the references template being positioned on the template itself that I now have two references sections, one at the end of the article, and one directly after the content of the section the Earroo Gaelgeyryn template is located in? --MacTire02 08:43, 10 Jerrey Geuree 2011 (UTC)

Oops! Y'know, you're absolutely right. I'd not even noticed that it was being transcluded. Sorry! ^_^ - Alison 23:58, 10 Jerrey Geuree 2011 (UTC)

Forced user renames coming soon for SUL[edit source]

Hi, sorry for writing in English. I'm writing to ask you, as a bureaucrat of this wiki, to translate and review the notification that will be sent to all users, also on this wiki, who will be forced to change their user name on May 27 and will probably need your help with renames. You may also want to help with the pages m:Rename practices and m:Global rename policy. Thank you, Nemo 13:27, 3 Boaldyn 2013 (UTC)

An important message about renaming users[edit source]

Dear Alison, My aplogies for writing in English. Please translate or have this translated for you if it will help. I am cross-posting this message to many places to make sure everyone who is a Wikimedia Foundation project bureaucrat receives a copy. If you are a bureaucrat on more than one wiki, you will receive this message on each wiki where you are a bureaucrat.

As you may have seen, work to perform the Wikimedia cluster-wide single-user login finalisation (SUL finalisation) is taking place. This may potentially effect your work as a local bureaucrat, so please read this message carefully.

Why is this happening? As currently stated at the global rename policy, a global account is a name linked to a single user across all Wikimedia wikis, with local accounts unified into a global collection. Previously, the only way to rename a unified user was to individually rename every local account. This was an extremely difficult and time-consuming task, both for stewards and for the users who had to initiate discussions with local bureaucrats (who perform local renames to date) on every wiki with available bureaucrats. The process took a very long time, since it's difficult to coordinate crosswiki renames among the projects and bureaucrats involved in individual projects.

The SUL finalisation will be taking place in stages, and one of the first stages will be to turn off Special:RenameUser locally. This needs to be done as soon as possible, on advice and input from Stewards and engineers for the project, so that no more accounts that are unified globally are broken by a local rename to usurp the global account name. Once this is done, the process of global name unification can begin. The date that has been chosen to turn off local renaming and shift over to entirely global renaming is 15 September 2014, or three weeks time from now. In place of local renames is a new tool, hosted on Meta, that allows for global renames on all wikis where the name is not registered will be deployed.

Your help is greatly needed during this process and going forward in the future if, as a bureaucrat, renaming users is something that you do or have an interest in participating in. The Wikimedia Stewards have set up, and are in charge of, a new community usergroup on Meta in order to share knowledge and work together on renaming accounts globally, called Global renamers. Stewards are in the process of creating documentation to help global renamers to get used to and learn more about global accounts and tools and Meta in general as well as the application format. As transparency is a valuable thing in our movement, the Stewards would like to have at least a brief public application period. If you are an experienced renamer as a local bureaucrat, the process of becoming a part of this group could take as little as 24 hours to complete. You, as a bureaucrat, should be able to apply for the global renamer right on Meta by the requests for global permissions page on 1 September, a week from now.

In the meantime please update your local page where users request renames to reflect this move to global renaming, and if there is a rename request and the user has edited more than one wiki with the name, please send them to the request page for a global rename.

Stewards greatly appreciate the trust local communities have in you and want to make this transition as easy as possible so that the two groups can start working together to ensure everyone has a unique login identity across Wikimedia projects. Completing this project will allow for long-desired universal tools like a global watchlist, global notifications and many, many more features to make work easier.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns about the SUL finalisation, read over the Help:Unified login page on Meta and leave a note on the talk page there, or on the talk page for global renamers. You can also contact me on my talk page on meta if you would like. I'm working as a bridge between Wikimedia Foundation Engineering and Product Development, Wikimedia Stewards, and you to assure that SUL finalisation goes as smoothly as possible; this is a community-driven process and I encourage you to work with the Stewards for our communities.

Thank you for your time. -- Keegan (WMF) talk 18:24, 25 Luanistyn 2014 (UTC)

Your administrator and bureaucrat status on the Manx Wikipedia[edit source]

Hello. A policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc.) was adopted by community consensus in 2013. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing activity on wikis with no inactivity policy.

You meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for 2 years) on the wiki listed above. Since that wiki does not have its own rights review process, the global one applies.

If you want to keep your rights, you should inform the community of the wiki about the fact that the stewards have sent you this information about your inactivity. If the community has a discussion about it and then wants you to keep your rights, please contact the stewards at m:Stewards' noticeboard, and link to the discussion of the local community, where they express their wish to continue to maintain the rights.

If you wish to resign your rights, you can reply here or request removal of your rights on Meta.

If there is no response at all after approximately one month, stewards will proceed to remove your administrator and/or bureaucrat rights. In ambiguous cases, stewards will evaluate the responses and will refer a decision back to the local community for their comment and review. If you have any questions, please contact the stewards.
