Theory of Eternity (Admin)

Theory of Eternity (talk) 14:11, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

Not done I'm not satisfied with your apparent confirmation edit on an account created just today and which has zero edits. Moreover, given the outstanding outstanding concerns related to abuse of multiple accounts on Test Wiki, restoration of rights will not be considered at this time. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 14:16, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
When I become an admin here again? Theory of Eternity (talk) 18:48, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
Theory of Eternity, I think it is too early for us to grant the flag. You should follow the advice given by Dmehus and reapply after a while (probably months later). -- Jusl¡t (talk) 19:26, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

Why do we need it? I think you should copy that code first to your own common.js page. There is almost no vandalism on this wiki for which that script is intended. --Anton (talk) 06:42, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
Anton, that script will not only help to revert vandalism. It will restore any version that is archived in the page history. Take the example of your own sandbox/test page (if you have), only you make edits on that page and you cannot use rollback on that page. In that circumstances, this tool will help to restore any version of the page. -- Jusl¡t (talk) 06:56, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
Yes, I know what is Restorer. I can make Restorer to Gadgets, if you want. But I don't know why. --Anton (talk) 07:04, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
Anton, wait! Don't make. Let me do it if I will be granted the bit. -- Jusl¡t (talk) 07:15, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
Okay, good luck for requesting! --Anton (talk) 07:40, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
Not done I am not convinced that the script is needed, or needed sitewide. Therefore no need for the user right to be granted Zppix (Meta | talk to me) 14:00, 8 April 2021 (UTC)

 Done Please continue to make sure you are following all policies and know that bureaucrat is, ultimately, a more senior, trusted testing permission. Ultimately, Consuls are the de facto non-test administrators on TestWiki and they, together with the community at TestWiki:Community portal, guide this wiki. If granting permissions, please try and link to the diff page of the given user's request when granting rights, and only grant rights upon request. Anton (talk) 13:37, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

Lava Spire Can you tell me how you found TestWiki, or who referred you to us? Is there any particular aspect you are keen to test? Dmehus (talk) 22:13, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
I found this through a Google search for "test wikis" because I was wanting to test things admins can do on wikis like protecting pages, translating pages and blocking users. Lava Spire (talk) 22:15, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
Lava Spire Alright. I'm going to grant you sysop rights only for now. Should you wish to test bureaucrat rights, you may apply for that and any Consul only may grant that in there discussion. To make granting bureaucrat more likely, please ensure you create, and delete, a sufficient number of test pages with actual text and messages in the body of the pages, reverting your test page creations in the reverse order performed, of course. Alternatively, if you have an existing Wikimedia account in existence for the past several months, please feel free to create a confirmation edit on a Wikimedia wiki stating your account name on Miraheze. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 22:34, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
All right, will do. Thanks. Lava Spire (talk) 22:38, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
Lava Spire noting this very similarly named Wikimedia account, have you ever had any prior Miraheze accounts? I would remind you that you would do well to be upfront, honest, and candid, as honesty is always the best policy. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 22:41, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
No, this is my first Miraheze account, and I do not have any Wikimedia accounts. I chose my name based on my favorite level in Super Mario Galaxy, The Sinking Lava Spire. Lava Spire (talk) 23:36, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
Thank you. Interesting, that was that user's inspiration for creating their account as well. Dmehus (talk) 23:41, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

 Done. Please ensure you follow our policies, especially Testing policy and Main policy, reverting every test administrative action in the reverse order performed. As a best practice, test blocks should be done on User:Example or yourself. --Dmehus (talk) 19:58, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Lava Spire (Bureaucrat)

Lava Spire (talk) 21:04, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Not done per my comments in your above request, as I'm not satisfied with the number and quality of your testing edits. If you're able to confirm your Miraheze account from a Wikimedia wiki account in good standing, I'm open to reconsidering this request. Dmehus (talk) 21:07, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
I don't have a Wikimedia account so I guess I will test here more before asking again. Lava Spire (talk) 21:09, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
Yes, or you can also test at Test Wiki, as the Special:Nuke feature may be included within the sysop toolbkit, though it may also be within the bureaucrat toolkit. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 21:13, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Turtle84375 (Admin)

  • Status:  Done by Brewster239
  • User: Turtle84375 ( talk · contribs · deleted · logs · rights · CentralAuth )
  • Requested group/permission: Admin
  • Reason for requesting: To test further privileges with the Flow and WikiForum extensions. Additionally, I would like to test the capabilities of the Translations feature as an Admin. Administrator is also a prerequisite for the Bureaucrat role, and while I have no real need for 'crat at the moment, Admin experience could prove handy if I ever needed the higher permission, not just here but on other wikis as well.

Thank you :) Turtle84375 (talk) 08:28, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
I'm not protesting this, but I just want to say that you can test the translation, Flow and Forum extensions without administrator rights. --Anton (talk) 08:46, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
Well, it's hard to know what Turtle84375 was looking to test, but most likely, they were looking to test certain Flow and WikiForum functions that are only available to the sysop group. Also, we have to remember that this is a TestWiki and sysop is essentially akin to user whereas bureaucrat is akin to autoconfirmed users who are trustworthy. (Credit to Naleksuh for the apt analogy.) Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 17:27, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
