The system currently recognizes 233 administrators. If that is not the last number in the list above, there is an error in the list.

This page explains the role of administrators (sometimes called admins or sysops) on Wikimedia Commons. Note that details of the role, and the way in which administrators are appointed, may differ from other sites.

If you want to request administrator help, please post at Commons:Administrators' noticeboard.

There are currently 233 administrators on Commons.

What is an administrator?Edit

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

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 do I become an administrator?Edit

First, consider whether becoming an administrator is the best way for you to contribute to the project. Experience shows that outstanding contributors of content often reduce their contributions because of the maintenance overhead after they become admins, and this is what we want least. So please contribute your best skills and understand that there are many ways of getting community credit besides being an admin. Admin status on Commons is not an honour for outstanding content contributors, but just provides an additional set of tools for people who show that they want to clean up.

Consider whether you actually need the admin tools for the work you would like to do. The community does not hand out the tools to those who do not need or who are not likely to make use of them. So, if you need the tools only for a limited period, or in order to clean up your own contributions, please simply ask an existing admin to help you out.

Admins are expected to remain reasonably active here, and if after appointment you cease to use the tools for an extended period you will automatically lose them under our de-admin policy. You should expect as a admin to make yourself available on Commons to a reasonable extent (a userpage that asks people to leave messages for you on some other project is not considered acceptable practice for an admin).

We do not have any hard and fast rules setting out the minimum period you should have been active on Commons in order to apply for adminship, nor any minimum number of edits. However, the requirement that you be a experienced and trusted member of the Commons community typically means that prior to applying you should have had sufficient breadth and depth of experience here to be able to demonstrate that. If you are an admin or an experienced user on another project, by all means mention that, but bear in mind that off-Commons experience is on its own not normally enough.

Although not mandatory, it is often a good idea to talk to existing admins to get feedback about your experience and approach. You may be able to get another admin to nominate you, although self-nominations are also allowed.

When you request adminship, the community will consider your ability to fill the admin role. Individual Commons contributors may have varying expectations of candidates, and you may wish to review some archived RFAs to get a sense of what people are looking for. As a practical matter, users often want to see a reasonable level of involvement in admin-type activities such as deletion requests, accurately tagging images as copyright violations, new user patrolling, and so on. Users often want to be satisfied that you are an integral member of the Commons community and will look at the way you interact with others, on user talk pages and elsewhere.

The request for adminshipEdit

When you are ready, make sure you have a userpage, enable email in your preferences, then apply, or ask your nominator to apply, using the box below:

Use the box below, replacing username with your username:



Next stepsEdit

  • 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.

The public discussion and voteEdit

Adminship nominations usually remain open for seven days, for votes and comments. The period starts when you posted your nomination (if a self-nom) or when you posted your acceptance (if somebody else nominated you). At the end of that period the nomination will be closed by a bureaucrat who will either grant or decline promotion. The nomination may be left open for more than seven days, or a longer period specified, should a bureaucrat consider that desirable.

As a guideline, promotion normally requires at least 75% in favour, with a minimum of 4 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. Among other things, the closing bureaucrat may take into account the strength of any arguments presented and the experience and knowledge of the commenting users. For example, the comments and votes of users who have zero or few contributions on Commons may at the bureaucrat ‘s discretion be discounted.

If the nomination is successful, the closing bureaucrat will grant the applicant admin rights.

Requests for permission to run a botEdit

Use the box below, replacing botname with your bot's username:



See Commons:Bots/Requests for the whole process.

Next stepsEdit

  • After creating the subpage, you must transclude it on Requests and votes, at the top of the section.
  • If someone else nominated you, rather than you nominating yourself, please "accept" the nomination by stating "I accept" or something similar, and signing below the nomination itself. This puts you on record as accepting, and the timestamp of the acceptance is how we determine when the request started (so we don't close early by mistake). The subpage will still need to be transcluded by you or your nominator.

CandidatesEdit

Please note 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   Support votes or   Oppose ones as this will help the closing bureaucrat in their decision. Greater weight is given to argument, with supporting evidence if needed, than to a simple vote.

Any user may comment on the merits of the request to run a bot. Please give reasons, as that makes it easier for the closing bureaucrat. Read Commons:Bots before commenting.

Geograph Update Bot (talk · contribs) (locations)Edit

Operator: Bjh21 (talk · contributions · Number of edits · recent activity · block log · User rights log · uploads · Global account information)

Bot's tasks for which permission is being sought: Adding and amending geocoding templates on files from Geograph projects.

Automatic or manually assisted: automatic, unsupervised

Edit type (e.g. Continuous, daily, one time run): One-time run initially, thereafter every few months or when I find a new kind of problem.

Maximum edit rate (e.g. edits per minute): 12 edits per minute

Programming language(s): Python with pywikibot

This is an addition to Geograph Update Bot's existing authorisation.

There's more detail of what the bot will do at User:Geograph Update Bot#Location correction. Initially, it will be fixing co-ordinates supplied by GeographBot, as discussed long ago at Commons:Batch uploading/Geograph#Imprecise Geotags. Later I'd like to tackle Geograph images that have never had a location and those with location but no heading. The task description above is intended to cover all of these and more.

As presently coded, the bot will not edit pages if the change of location is small, but this loses the opportunity to record the source and precision, so I'd be quite open to overwriting all of GeographBot's locations if that were desired. That would increase the number of edits from a few hundred thousand to about 1,700,000.

I'll start a test run in a few hours.

--bjh21 (talk) 16:30, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

Test run complete. See Special:Contributions/Geograph Update Bot. Note that the first few edits are unrepresentative as I debugged the edit-constructing code. --bjh21 (talk) 19:10, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

It occurs to me that people involved in the 2010 discussion may have opinions. @Multichill:, @ClemRutter:, and @Nilfanion: are all still active on Commons. --bjh21 (talk) 10:23, 9 October 2017 (UTC)

  • Is it possible that some of the photographs show a subset of the actual location and already contain precise location data (perhaps manually corrected), so that updating to the defined coordinates of the general object will worsen the situation? (I ran into such situations when updating coordinates of Austrian monuments.) Maybe the bot should check the file page history for possible manual edits which are not categorization only and skip these files? I know this improves complexity a lot, but it may save some mistakes that are not detected otherwise. Thoughts? --Krd 07:07, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
    I think you may have misunderstood precisely what I'm planning. I'm going to be updating the camera co-ordinates (mostly: see next paragraph). The new co-ordinates will be based on the camera co-ordinates for the same picture on Geograph Britain and Ireland, which is where both the pictures and the existing co-ordinates came from. To handle cases where the co-ordinates have been updated since upload, I compare the {{location dec}} template in the latest revision of the page to the one in the first revision, and check that the first revision was generated by User:GeographBot. That should mean that I leave alone any page where the co-ordinates have been changed by hand.
    There is one occasion where I plan to add {{object location}}, and that's when I can't derive a decent camera location from the Geograph database. Your question has made me realise that I need to avoid doing this where there is already an {{object location}} recorded for a picture. In that case, I think I should just delete the GeographBot-derived {{location dec}}. --bjh21 (talk) 11:34, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
    Ok, understood. I think the task should be approved. --Krd 16:34, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Please make edit summaries similar to MediaWiki:Gadget-HotCat.js.
I think will be good idea to use English there.
Please ask request for other task separately.

Bot's tasks for which permission is being sought:

  1. On files listed in the Category:Pictures of volleyball players from Legavolley (2017), descriptions will be uniformed to a more consistent «[Name] [Surname], [italian] volleyball player» (+ italian) instead of only something in italian (  «Immagine del giocatore di Lega Pallavolo Serie A»). The personal player category is added to the file. (e.g. Special:Diff/262356268)
  2. If the personal volleyball category doesn't exist it will be created. It will be into the best national category available (e.g. in Category:Men's volleyball players from Australia) and, if possible, with the {{Wikidata person}}. (e.g. Special:Diff/262356175)

Automatic or manually assisted: manually assisted

Edit type (e.g. Continuous, daily, one time run): daily (In spare time until task is done, you know)

Maximum edit rate (e.g. edits per minute): 7

Bot flag requested: (Y/N): Y

Programming language(s): Python (Pywikibot)

    --Valerio Bozzolan (talk) 11:30, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
    Seems OK for me, but I would like to suggest to also refer to Wikidata item (if exists) and try to fetch descriptions from there instead. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:45, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
    @EugeneZelenko: You mean copy-pasting the description from Wikidata? Or is there a template/module for that? (I've added a 2nd related task.) --Valerio Bozzolan (talk) 11:20, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
    Sure, template with reference to Wikidata item is proper solution, but I'm not aware of such general one for person or just object. May be @Jarekt: could suggest? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:40, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
    If you mean the Template:On Wikidata in top of the page, I think that it's possible. --Valerio Bozzolan (talk) 21:45, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
      Question Should the bot avoid to create the personal category of the volleyball player if that personal category will contain only a single file? --Valerio Bozzolan (talk) 21:45, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

I created a new template {{Wikidata person}} that adds a {{creator}} template and interwiki links based on Wikidata. It also adds Category:People by name and birthyear/deathyear categories. Maybe something like that would be useful here. I also think it is a good idea to create category even for a single person if it is a notable person. Notability is a tricky business, but for people category if you can imagine that someone might upload more pictures of a person that is good enough for me. --Jarekt (talk) 01:08, 9 October 2017 (UTC)

  Question Do you think that we should also add the DEFAULTSORT surname, name after that template? --Valerio Bozzolan (talk) 10:09, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
yes, the Category:People by name and birthyear/deathyear categories will have proper sortkey, but it will be handy for other categories. --Jarekt (talk) 13:05, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
I found existing {{Depicted person}}, may be we could just extend its functionality to use Wikidata? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:30, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
That template is used in an individual file to list people depicted in the specific photograph. It has a different purpose. --Jarekt (talk) 20:33, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
This is what this request is about as far as I could judge from test run. Of course, it may be widened. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 22:45, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
You are right. I got confused. This is about file descriptions not category descriptions. I think it might be a good idea to add categories for a lot of those guys but that might be outside of the scope of this request. --Jarekt (talk) 00:19, 10 October 2017 (UTC)
So, are these differences respecting your suggestions? file, cat --Valerio Bozzolan (talk) 08:40, 10 October 2017 (UTC)
The diffs look good. The infobox would look better if you add "Country of citizenship" and "occupation" properties to the wikidata item. But that is just a detail. --Jarekt (talk) 11:35, 10 October 2017 (UTC)
Good point, that would be the next bot proposal in Wikidata. --Valerio Bozzolan (talk) 12:33, 10 October 2017 (UTC)
TL;DR: We are ready :) Waiting for a kindly available bureaucrat. --Valerio Bozzolan (talk) 13:05, 15 October 2017 (UTC)
In Wikidata or Commons? IDepicted person: doesn't support Wikidata yet :-( --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:10, 15 October 2017 (UTC)
Commons :) I will work in Wikidata when I end here. --Valerio Bozzolan (talk) 14:17, 15 October 2017 (UTC)
