I wish to be able to edit in the MediaWiki namespace, in order to add useful editing gadgets to Wikispecies. I did this successfully, before this elevated level of permission was introduced (see for example MediaWiki:Gadget-HotCat / MediaWiki:Gadget-HotCat.js.

I need to be an Interface Admin in order to update badly formatted and/or outdated MediaWiki CSS- and JavaScript files. Tommy Kronkvist (talk) 10:36, 13 December 2019 (UTC)

Close as promoted. Permission set to expire automatically in a year. OhanaUnitedTalk page 00:51, 26 December 2019 (UTC)

  1. Yes, I've been using two factor authorisation (TFA) for all Wikimedia- and Phabricator logins since it was first officially implemented by Wikimedia (i.e. I did not fully trust nor use it during the initial 2016–2018 TFA beta-test period).
  2. As described by our Interface administrators guideline above: "The promotion to interface administrator is time-limited to one year, after which the user is automatically demoted." In other words the time-limit is set as part of granting the interface admin rights, and 365 days later the demotion is automatically handled by the MediaWiki software.

Why you want to be an Interface Administrator TMenang (talk) 07:41, 1 April 2021 (UTC)

  1. Too soon. User has only been posting to his project since yesterday, and while their translations are very welcome, that's all they've done; they have created no original content, taxonomic or otherwise. Nor are they active on other Wikimedia projects. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:15, 1 April 2021 (UTC)
  2. Per Andy Mabbett. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 13:20, 1 April 2021 (UTC).
  3. No reason given, no demonstrated need --DannyS712 (talk) 23:07, 1 April 2021 (UTC)
  4. as above, and no, Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 18:36, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
  5. Justification requested but not acted on. Not enough edits either. Too soon Andyboorman (talk) 19:40, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
  6. It does not deliver arguments why it wants to be an interface administrator. And also per above. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 20:34, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
  7. Ditto to the above - MPF (talk) 19:35, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

I request Interface Adminship user status in order to update outdated and/or non-working MediaWiki CSS- and JavaScript files, so that we can make such edits without having to involve an external Steward. See this discussion at the Admin's Noticeboard for a current example. Tommy Kronkvist (talk) 17:31, 5 April 2021 (UTC)

  • Please confirm that you will enable 2FA once you obtained this role. OhanaUnitedTalk page 06:58, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
Yes @OhanaUnited, I've been using two factor authorisation (TFA) for all Wikimedia- and Phabricator logins since it was first officially implemented by Wikimedia (i.e. I did not fully trust nor use it during the initial 2016–2018 TFA beta-test period). You added me to the interface administrator user group for a period of one year in December 26, 2019, and I confirmed using 2FA already then. Best regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 09:09, 6 April 2021 (UTC).
