Theres 27 admins out of 195 active WS users, and it would be great to have more admins, who speak other languages than English. Hector has been with us almost three years, has made over 5 000 edits, and is very active creating and editing at an acceptable quality level all the > 3500 species plus genera, families, and so on of neotropical birds at the Spanish Wikipedia and also maintain the taxonomic dynamic update; his work at Wikispecies is a natural complement to that.

  1. Not that I'm against Floscuculi becoming an admin, nevertheless I puzzle over the question whether we don't need some added value to ameliorate a person who's making an abundance of good edits yet fails to participate in discussions or raise his hand to vote on important issues, not that there are many such persons around to choose from unfortunately.

Comments

A point I would like to make here. @Mariusm: Of course you can have your view and vote the way you feel you should and I am not asking you to reconsider. But here is the thing. We need a selection of Admins with different abilities, different knowledge sets. We do need some that are more administrative in their knowledge and understanding of Wikimedia. Are all well intentioned admins without a taxonomic background of use to Wikispecies, no of course not. It is an issue to be kept in check. However, there are many functions on a Wiki that are not taxonomic, we need people to do these things and advise those of us who are taxonomists. None of our admins are experienced in translation, I think it is negligent to not fill that void. Our primary focus is taxonomy, and that needs to be respected. But there are other jobs to do here. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 23:49, 4 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I would also like to clarify that in case of being chosen, my functions would focus on dealing with cases of obvious speedy deletion (for example: pages that are obviously not taxonomical like Wikipedia biographies or spam), block users who perform repeated vandalism or spam and continue working with translations; all following the corresponding policies. For the tranquility of Mariusm and the other users, I will not participate in discussions where I do not know or know the background issues, Wikispecies has several experienced administrators with the purpose and main objective of this project and always in case of doubt I will let them act. Regards. —Alvaro Molina ( - ) 00:45, 5 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I want to clarify that my vote wasn't a personal repudiation of Alvaro Molina adminship or my doubting of his qualifications which may be considerable, but that it reflects a disquiet of a non taxonomy-oriented admin-majority affecting the WS direction-moving in undesirable ways through votes, proposals, schemes, projects etc. (a case in point was the proposal to translate "References" and "Name" section-titles). Mariusm (talk) 04:42, 5 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Mariusm: At no time have I thought that, his arguments are valid and I have no objections with that; my intention as indicated above will not be to participate in discussions or aspects related to the taxonomy, I do not rule out in some future that I can internalize in that aspect, but if I do not have clarity on what should be done in a certain related subject, always I will let the other administrators who dominate the taxonomy or who have more experience take care of that. My focus will be on the maintenance that any administrator of a Wikimedia project does (delete, block, (semi)-protect, etc.) and manage the translations of the pages as I have done the last months. —Alvaro Molina ( - ) 13:47, 5 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Kaganer (talkcontribsblock logall projects)

For improving translatable help pages and categories. Requested "administrator" and "translation administrator" rights (both flags at once). As example, for improving translation markup in Wikispecies:Localization etc. I have admin rights on Meta-wiki and MediaWiki.org (mainly for these same goals), and also translation admin rights in Wikidata, Commons, Meta-wiki and MediaWiki.org. --Kaganer (talk) 09:32, 17 September 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

PS: Reasons for regular adminship:
  1. In Wikispecies some project pages is (or may be in future) fully protected (Wikispecies:Localization, Wikispecies:Oversight etc.); for any small improvenets needs requestings to other administratrs.
  2. MediaWiki messages (related with Wikispecies:Localization) is available for editing ('editinterface' right) for regular administrators only (but not for translation administrators)
  3. Special:PageTranslationDeletePage (for deletion incorrect translations) is currently available for regular administrators only (but not for translation administrators without sysop rights);

DannyS712 (talkcontribsblock logall projects)

I would like to nominate DannyS712 for administratorship. As of this writing he has made 26,627 edits to Wikispecies, and 543,094 edits to Wikimedia as a whole. (The equivalent values for our present admins are 136 to 492,144 edits for Wikispecies, and 9,276 to 2,403,084 for Wikimedia, though that data is a few days old.) He is active in dealing with vandalism and LTAs on many of the Wikimedia sister projects. He is currently a so called "abusefilter-helper" and "accountcreator" on Wikipedia, and administrator on Meta-Wiki, Simple English Wikipedia, Wikidata (where he's also an oversight), the Wikidata Test instance, Wikimania, Wikiquote, Wikiversity, and Wikivoyage. Furthermore he is a bureaucrat (+ of course also admin) on MediaWiki and the Wikipedia Test wiki. His global account information for all of Wikimedia can be found here: meta:Special:CentralAuth/DannyS712.

The poll will be started after DannyS712 approves this nomination, should he accept. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 03:20, 7 July 2021 (UTC).Reply[reply]

I accept this nomination. I would use the rights primarily to help cleanup after LTAs and other vandals, which I have experience with both on other wikis (as mentioned above) and here on wikispecies. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 03:23, 7 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bureaucrat note: The Wikimedia user account was registered at login.wikimedia.org at 18:37, 25 March 2022, less than 1.5 hours before making this request for adminship. The user has only made two edits to Wikispecies – namely when applying for adminship. The user has only made a total of 25 edits to the entire Wikimedia community. The first 22 of those were made to Wikimedia Commons, where the user account is now blocked indefinitely. Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 22:09, 25 March 2022 (UTC).Reply[reply]

While I might not be as active on Wikispecies, I think I could help with administrator tools here. I am quite experienced with the translation extension, and have been a translation administrator on Wikispecies since June 2021. In that role I have responded to a number of requests regarding the translation extension, but without admin rights could only do as much as attempting to explain solutions for problems, like Special:PermanentLink/8996066#Turkish Wikispecies:Localization subpage or Special:PermanentLink/9047115#Speedy delete translation pages, to administrators, with varying success. Apart from that, I plan to work on internationalisation, for which I have already been submitting edit requests from time to time, and would be able to respond to run-of-the-mill abuse, since admin-wise this project can be quite inactive occasionally (cf. my undos). As a global sysop and already an administrator on two projects, I think I can be trusted for this role. 𝟙𝟤𝟯𝟺𝐪𝑤𝒆𝓇𝟷𝟮𝟥𝟜𝓺𝔴𝕖𝖗𝟰 (𝗍𝗮𝘭𝙠) 21:00, 14 December 2022 (UTC) 𝟙𝟤𝟯𝟺𝐪𝑤𝒆𝓇𝟷𝟮𝟥𝟜𝓺𝔴𝕖𝖗𝟰 (𝗍𝗮𝘭𝙠) 21:00, 14 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Kaganer (talkcontribsblock logall projects)

I wish to nominate User:Kaganer for adminship. He's been a registered Wikimedia user since 2005, with a well documented Wikimedia experience in regards to for example localization, MediaWiki tools and Modules. Paul is already a translation administrator here at Wikispecies, but I think that his contributions as a "regular" admin would be even more beneficial to the whole community, for example when editing Wikispecies:Localization and other fully protected pages which are available for regular administrators only (but not for translation administrators).

He is currently an administrator at MediaWiki, Meta-Wiki and the Bashkir, Udmurt and Russian language versions of Wikipedia, and interface administrator at Meta-Wiki, Wikimedia Incubator plus the Bashkir and Udmurt Wikipedias. He is also a translation administrator at a total of 8 wikis, including here at Wikispecies, and used to be a member of the Arbitration Committee of the Russian Wikipedia.

@Kaganer has already unofficially accepted this admin nomination, however the poll will only be started after he also officially approves the nomination here at this page. Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 12:24, 16 December 2022 (UTC).Reply[reply]
