TechnicalEdit

Administrators are users with the technical ability on Wikimedia Commons to:

  • delete and undelete images and other uploaded files, and to view and restore deleted versions
  • delete and undelete pages, and to view and restore deleted revisions
  • protect and unprotect pages, and to edit admin-protected pages
  • block and unblock users, individual IP addresses and IP address ranges
  • edit the MediaWiki namespace
  • rename files
  • add and remove usergroups
  • configure Upload Wizard campaigns
  • delete and undelete specific log entries and revisions of pages
  • import pages from other wikis
  • merge the history of pages
  • modify abuse filters
  • not create redirects from source pages when moving pages
  • override the spoofing checks and title or username blacklist
  • send a message to multiple users at once (massmessage)
  • use higher limits in API queries

These are collectively known as the admin tools.

Community roleEdit

Administrators are experienced and trusted members of the Commons community who have taken on additional maintenance work and have been entrusted with the admin tools by public consensus/vote. Different admins have different areas of interest and expertise, but typical admin tasks include determining and closing deletion requests, deleting copyright violations, undeleting files where necessary, protecting Commons against vandalism, and working on templates and other protected pages. Of course, some of these tasks can be done by non-admins as well.

Administrators are expected to understand the goals of this project, and be prepared to work constructively with others towards those ends. Administrators should also understand and follow Commons' policies, and where appropriate respect community consensus.

Apart from roles which require use of the admin tools, administrators have no special editorial authority by virtue of their position, and in discussions and public votes their contributions are treated in the same way as any ordinary editor. Of course, some admins are influential, but that derives not from their position as such but from the personal trust they have gained from the community.

How toEdit

Further information: Commons:Administrators/Howto

Suggestions for administratorsEdit

Please read Commons:Guide to adminship.

Removal of administrator rightsEdit

Under the de-admin policy, administrator rights may be revoked due to inactivity or misuse of sysop tools.

Apply to become an administratorEdit

First, go to Commons:Administrators/Howto and read the information there. Then come back here and make your request in the section below.

  • After clicking on the appropriate button and creating the subpage, copy the link to the subpage, e.g. "Commons:Administrators/Requests/Username", edit Commons:Administrators/Requests and paste it in at the top of the section, then put it in double curly brackets (e.g. {{Commons:Administrators/Requests/Username}} ) to transclude it.
  • If someone else nominated you, please accept the nomination by stating "I accept" or something similar, and signing below the nomination itself. The subpage will still need to be transcluded by you or your nominator.


VotingEdit

Any registered user may vote here although those who have few or no previous edits may not be fully counted. It is preferable if you give reasons both for Symbol support vote.svg Support votes or Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose ones as this will help the closing bureaucrat in their decision. Greater weight is given to an argument, with supporting evidence if needed, than to a simple vote.

Promotion normally requires at least 75% in favour, with a minimum of 8 support votes. Votes from unregistered users are not counted. However, the closing bureaucrat has discretion in judging community consensus, and the decision will not necessarily be based on the raw numbers.

Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral comments are not counted in the vote totals for the purposes of calculating pass/fail percentages. However such comments are part of the discussion, may persuade others, and contribute to the closing bureaucrat's understanding of community consensus.

1989Edit

Vote

1989 (talk · contributions · deleted user contributions · recent activity · logs · block log · global contribs · SULinfo)

Scheduled to end: 15:38, (UTC)

I don't nominate people unless I genuinely believe they would be a real asset to the team. Multiple times I came across User:1989 and I wondered why he wasn't been an admin here already. After I asked him to consider applying, he immediately replied enthusiastically. :) 1989 might not be active for too long (only three months), but he's been incredibly active. Within those three months he had more than 137,000 contribs, with activity in the complete every admin area and has a few buttons which help him with that (file mover, image reviewer etc). Though, with admin buttons he could do the things himself, like deleting copyvios (for which he now frequently requests help from admins). It would be in the benefit of Commons if 1989 would become an admin. Hopefully you agree with me. Trijnsteltalk 15:38, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Acceptance - Thank you for your kind words. I'll accept. 1989 15:49, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. I don't like such renames. You don't know Chinese (according to userpage), are you? According to Commons:LP, every file "can be named in any language" (even in Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Russian, Persian and other non-latin languages). --Brateevsky {talk} 16:15, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Will be a great assert to the project as an admin some day, but still need more experience so you don't mistake such as point out by Brateevsky. -- KTC (talk) 17:05, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose not now --Michael Kramer (talk) 17:47, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Uploads logos of companies (more examples) and describes them to be "own work" and self-CC-BY-SA instead of {{PD-textlogo}}. This one is even too complex for PD-textlogo (I'm going to RfD this one and check all other uploads by 1989, fortunately there are not so many by now). Uploads out of COM:SCOPE pictures, too; of course with poor categorization. All that makes me suppose pretty poor knowledge of COM:Licensing, COM:SCOPE, COM:Categories and other policies an admin must be familiar with. --A.Savin 19:33, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Youth to the front--Kopiersperre (talk) 19:53, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

CommentsEdit

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Although doing useful edits, I reverted several inappropriate speedy deletion requests. I am not against you getting the admin tools, but you need to be more careful with speedy deletion requests. What do you think? Regards, Yann (talk) 16:03, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
I'm sorry if some of the speedys I made were inappropriate, sometimes when I look at an image that has something that is not in the public domain, I just leap into speedys, in which I have stopped doing. Now I mostly either put a no permissions tag or make a deletion request to see what the community has to say. 1989 16:08, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
Reply to BrateevskyEdit

The reason I renamed the file was because I did the translation of the previous file name, and the result I had was Xie Jin Yan. The person who requested the renaming was trying to claim that was the wrong person, and claimed that Jeannie Hsieh was the identify of the person on the file. 1989 16:25, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Problem is that in Chinese 謝金燕 is correct (see: zh:謝金燕). Still, I see this as a good faith mistake. Google translate does translate it differently than her transliterated name, and an effort was put in to check. Unless there are more examples it seems a pretty weak reason to oppose adminship. ColonialGrid (talk) 16:35, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
    • If one can't be 100% sure, then it should had been left to someone who understood the language. We have en:Jeannie Hsieh, which could have told even someone who don't know Chinese that the name was correct. -- KTC (talk) 17:05, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
Reply to A.SavinEdit

All of the photos I uploaded were converts of SVGs, and all that was back when I first signed up, so I don't see how my beginning is a valid argument. Plus, I don't see how my uploads are out of scope, you didn't provide examples, and the poor categorizing is from the Flickr2Commons, the tool automatically puts in random categories, so that's not entirely my fault. 1989 19:55, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Using Flickr2Commons does not prevent you from adding appropriate categories afterwards. --A.Savin 20:37, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
