Phab:T282624[edit]

FYI: WMF T&S has decided to allow only stewards to grant/revoke interface admin permission, that means the power to grant/remove IA will be removed from you, the bureaucrats. -- CptViraj (talk) 05:24, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

@CptViraj: Thanks for the update. That sounds fine to me. --99of9 (talk) 23:35, 12 May 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, it's fine from security perspective, it will be same as CU/OS, though I still prefer permission in crats hands because of local log stuff, but there seems to be no easy and good alternative. But they should have atleast informed us before submitting the phab ticket/patch, so we could make changes in our policy/procedures before the change goes live. But the good news is they have now stalled/postponed the task for communication with communities after the complaints/feedbacks they got. -- CptViraj (talk) 04:50, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
They wanted to inform the wikis, which is why they added the #user-notice project tag to that task. They just haven't done that yet, because there was a lot of voices against such a change. Creating a phab task does not mean that there is no announcement for the change going to be made. Creating the phab task before making the announcement is quite a common thing to do and I don't really see a problem with that. --Zabe (talk) 14:53, 18 June 2021 (UTC)
@Zabe: I see. Thanks! -- CptViraj (talk) 17:05, 3 July 2021 (UTC)

Request for Translation Admin rights[edit]

Hi, I frequently organize campaigns and events related to Wikimedia Commons (for example: Commons:SVG Translation Campaign 2019 in India) and am also part of the Wiki Loves Monuments international coordination team. Apart from these, as we are prepping to organize another campaign in India in the coming months, translations are quite important, and as I am setting up pages, it would be helpful for me to have the translation adminship rights to mark pages for translation.

Please provide a link to previous translation activities. --Krd 06:35, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
@KCVelaga: ? --Krd 06:57, 4 August 2021 (UTC)
@Krd: Hi, sorry, missed the previous reply. I would actually like to revoke my request for now. KCVelaga (talk · mail) 08:42, 5 August 2021 (UTC)
