Welcome to your mother's basement! Here you can ask for autopatrolled, sysop rights, ninja rights, or tech rights.

Please include your reason for requesting the rights. For example, if requesting sysop rights, one could say: "I've been here for bloody ages and you fuckers forgot to give me sysop".

Please also {{ping|user's name}} a mod or tech -- otherwise, nobody will respond.

Ninja:Readymade (Withdrawn)

I've discovered there's a repetitive job that needs doing, which will flood recent changes all evening-adding Category:Talk pages for deleted articles to shedloads of articles that failed the AfD. I'd write a bot but I never past Hello World I'm afraid. @DiamondDisc1 WilderBicycle 16:21, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

@Readymade It's "passed" not "past". ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 16:23, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
I was aiming for "got past." Do I get extra marks for being wrong in two different ways? WilderBicycle 16:27, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
If you're not technically skilled, it's best not to venture into writing a bot. What Ninja can do for you however is allow you to turn your "Bot" permission on, then manually make the repetitive changes that you want to make, then turn your Bot permission off and go back to normal editing. Bongolian (talk) 19:31, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
What? i just said i wasn't writing a bot because I'm not technically skilled. WilderBicycle 19:43, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
I didn't understand your sentence: poor grammar. Bongolian (talk) 19:52, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
OK fuck it, do the fucking job yourselves. WilderBicycle 19:58, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
Huh? ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 20:22, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
@Readymade Make the bot first, then ask for ninja. :)-DïämöńđDïsc1 (talk) 05:40, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

Sysop: K0rnsbl0d (Done)

Been making a bunch of edits to clean up the wiki, so have I earned my way to sysop? I'm here to be cleanup crew and show you how it's done. K0rnsbl0dLet the galaxy burn!"Kill!Maim!Burn!" 20:14, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

Sysop: Right-wing RationalWiki (Withdrawn)

I've been her for a year and I haven't destroyed anything. Contrary to popular belief I'm not actually plotting to block all the liberals here, just most of them . --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 14:48, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

I think we've done this before, with rather predictable results. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 14:56, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
"Even those who oppose mainstream RW ideas are — and should be — given sysop, as we encourage constructive dialogue", - RationalWiki Sysop policy page. --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 15:16, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
Given that, by your own admission you only want SysOp privileges so you can stage a Coup d'état against anyone who dosen't toe your line in the sand and kiss your ass, I think we can safely rule out constructive dialog as a motive for your request. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 15:21, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
1 single Sysop could never pull off a Coup, and I wouldn't be foolish enough to try it since it. --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 15:31, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
Not only is it possible, but it's disturbingly easy to pull off. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 15:33, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
Then you have my word that I won't attempt it. Besides its well known that I wish to take control of this Wiki through democratic means, i.e the next moderator elections. I have no interest in becoming a dictator or tyrant. --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 15:36, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
@GrammarCommie: I'm inclined to agree with RWRW. One sysop can't overthrow everyone else, especially given the fact that sysops can't take away mod and tech rights, and that most users have a spare sock lying around. Remember how well FAMAS's coup went? That's what happens when one sysop steps out of line. I say he should be demoted. RoninMacbeth (talk) 16:16, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
Off-topic, but do most users really have a spare sock lying around!? :O}0 --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 18:27, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
@LeftyGreenMario I may or may not have a spare sock lying around somewhere. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 18:48, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
Oh, well, I do have a meat puppet, being my sister BabyLuigiOnFire. *wink* --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 19:15, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

Yes

  1. Has earned my...well, I wouldn't say trust, but he has at least demonstrated that he's not going to burn the wiki to the ground overnight. RoninMacbeth (talk) 17:54, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
  2. But only if he changes his name. Ariel31459 (talk) 02:54, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
  3. If they start blocking everyone immediately, lose it. But otherwise, what's the harm? They've already been given autopatrolled, so it wouldn't make anything harder to spot. —Kazitor, pending 05:57, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
    For the record, I don't agree with the auto-patrolled either. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 19:25, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
    So the request has been withdrawn and the discussion should be over, yet you seem to want to kick someone (me) while their down? Charming. --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 19:45, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
    It's no surprise, @Right-wing RationalWiki, that you're thin-skinnned just like your hero. Give this up and move on: either make some sane edits or leave. You're not doing yourself any favors. Bongolian (talk) 19:59, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
    I have been making sane edits, yet you all used your personal dislike for me to discredit me and sabotage my user rights request. Besides I tried to 'move on' but people like you and LeftyGreenMario keep opening old wounds. --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 20:03, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
    Also of note, RWRW's tantrum indicates he's either trolling or doesn't understand how RW works (despite being here for a year). RW is a mobocracy, not a democracy. Any Sysop can make someone else a Sysop unless they've been previously permabanned, but it's generally up to do mob to override such decisions when they turn out to be excessively disruptive (the Chicken Coop). Bongolian (talk) 19:40, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

# For my reasons that are stated above (if I am indeed allowed to vote for myself). --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 18:53, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

No

  1. I don't know what this account is for, it smells like a parody account who likes to draw attention to himself and the users generally play along. I don't generally think parody accounts should get powers, and if the owner of the parody account wants power, then I think he should just create a serious one. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 18:25, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
  2. I don't trust RWRW, as if that wasn't obvious enough. Part of that distrust stems from the fact that RWRW has repeatedly expressed a desire to turn RantionWiki into a Conservapedia clone, and part from certain edits that look suspiciously like trolling. If I had made Tankie style edits defending Stalin when I first signed up, even in jest, it is highly unlikely that I would have been viewed favorably. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 18:46, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
    Out of curiosity, what exactly do you naysayers think will happen if I get Sysop rights? --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 18:53, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
    Not much because anything bad you do is easily fixed. I just doubt that you deserve or need sysop rights though. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 19:08, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
    Then if you acknowledge that I won't cause any lasting damage, surely that means your opposes are based off personal dislikes for me rather than what's best for the wiki. --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 19:21, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
    Don't misrepresent my arguments and don't call me Shirley. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 19:25, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
  3. He's obviously a parodist and, personally, I don't find the joke of people pretending to have political opinions very different from their own funny anymore. It may have been how Stephen Colbert built an entire career but online it just makes you look like a troll. What I don't want to do now is set a precedent for giving sysop rights to someone who has said that their sole purpose here is to cause trouble. The next user that says that might be the new F.A. who really means it. I think RWRW has been like The Boy Who Cried Wolf and only has himself to blame for people not trusting him. He is, however, obviously capable of making some good quality edits to articles. My advice to him would be to ditch the Right-wing RationalWiki persona and start again with a new account. Then he could be made a sysop in a few days, like nearly everyone else. Spud (talk) 01:06, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
  4. Well put, Spud. Bongolian (talk) 01:39, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

Goat

  1. I'm of mixed minds on this. RWRW has a point regarding Sysop policy, but RWRW has also not been autopatrolled after 1 year: so much for the coup possibilities. Where are his socks rising to his defence? On the other hand, RWRW's edits are rather narrow. Troll potential is high, and if RWRW is not a troll, they don't know the difference between authoritarianism and conservativism. Bongolian (talk) 18:18, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
  2. I just got back from vacation and decided to check this out, personally I feel mixed about this. I understand the Sysop policy but always had a suspicion against those who request for the position unless they have some valid reasons. While I was made Sysop though I never requested it officially (I'm actually surprised that Christopher actually made me one just because I had the "I would like to be a Sysop" on my userbox) I have behaved myself and made sure not to deal with anything I had no idea about (though I have been given some advice on how to handle some stuff, thx guys.) So I'm on the fence with this. Untill I hear a valid reason I wont say yes or no.Řïmũŗû ŢèmpéŝţRimuru Slime.png 02:10, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

Tech: Palaeonictis

I meet all of the requirements:

I have technical expertise, I have some knowledge of PHP, and most importantly, I definitely DO know how to google, unlike some people. I've also been on this wiki for years, and have contributed substantially to many articles relating to evolution and religion.--Palaeonictis (talk) 12:28, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

I see no reason why not. @LeftyGreenMario @Bongolian. RoninMacbeth (talk) 20:37, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
OK, done. @Palaeonictis Bongolian (talk) 21:05, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Sysop: Tabula Rasa/ Doublethink (Done)

@RWRW I request the restoration of my sysop rights. I promise to use the talk page before editing and not edit the social justice article. Tabula Rasa (talk) 01:53, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

@Tabula Rasa I have had quite a hectic few days so I haven't really checked RationalWiki as much as usual. Before restoring your Mop, I intend on thoroughly reading through the Coop discussion that recently took place. I have some stuff to do this morning so I will get back to you in a few hours. --RWRW (talk) 07:49, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
It's only been a couple of days since the Coop case. I'd say that you need to wait at least a couple of weeks. It won't hurt. Bongolian (talk) 07:55, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
Yeah the timing isn't great, though its worth remembering that I was made a Sysop shortly after being denied it by the community. I have now looked over the Coop discussion. @Tabula Rasa hypothetically speaking, if you were given the Mop would you pledge to never edit war and to never permaban IPs? --RWRW (talk) 09:02, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I do pledge that. Tabula Rasa (talk) 16:20, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
You aren't permanently barred from being demoted, but I'd give it another week or two before putting your foot in the door again. It's all a matter of timing, and while I would personally vouch for you, I`m not sure others would be so keen on demoting you so quickly after you got promoted. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 16:25, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Personally, I think you should be re-mopped today. However, I appreciate that other members of the community may not share that view. I won’t demote you just yet, but I will do so by early January. I will also remove you from the ‘Sysoprevoke’ bin now, so any other admin can give you back the tools in the next couple of weeks if they see fit. --RWRW (talk) 17:10, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
Understood, I will be continuing to work over winter break. Tabula Rasa (talk) 17:17, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
I don't have any objection to the sysoping of Tabula Rasa, given that they have been a sysop before and haven't totally bungled everything up. although simply renaming their account would have been easier than creating a new one. Just saying. — Dysk (contribs) 17:41, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, but I don't know how to do that. I would have if I had known how to, I should have asked. Tabula Rasa (talk) 17:47, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
I should probably add a helpful note somewhere, because it isn't possible to rename your own account, only to ask a tech/mod to do it. — Dysk (contribs) 17:51, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
I've reconsidered my position, I advocate for the reinstatement of Tabula's sysop rights. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 18:21, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
That was my gut feeling, but I went against it believing it would open a can of worms. I’d happily endorse another Sysop restoring his rights, or do it myself myself if I made a mistake in assuming the community’s position. —RWRW (talk) 18:32, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
I also don't see a reason not to restore sysop. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 18:38, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
So I`m guessing the consensus is to reinstate sysop rights? Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 18:42, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
You can go ahead and do it. RWRW and I will probably be the ones taking the heat if the community is pissed. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 18:46, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
Done. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 18:48, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
Thank you, I promise not to disappoint everyone . Tabula Rasa (talk) 19:15, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

Request to restore Tech role

I'm asking to be re-teched. I was appointed to Tech some time ago when my username was EK, and over the last year did various site maintenance stuff, such as maintaining the mediawiki name space, writing edit filter things, site election related work, sitenotice edits, etc. A week ago I quit the site over an editorial dispute, at the time it was intended to be permanent and I asked for my roles to be removed, which was done. Various people here subsequently convinced me to return, which I did two days ago and asked @RWRW to restore my roles, which he did. I was subsequently removed from Tech by @Bongolian who told me on me the Saloon Bar that I was required to post a request here as a "formality" before I could have the Tech role restored again, so here I am. — Z 02:31, 5 July 2020 (UTC)

No (1) part of a cabal who does all kinds of wiki stuff off-wiki in one or more discord channels and doesn't communicate any of this on the wiki. Scratch that, there is no cabal. (2) instability and drama and making LANCB a joke. Scratch that, too. EK made good contributions to the wiki's health in the past and is a good tech who uses the tools appropriately and does not abuse them. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 02:51, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
Done. Thank you for your cooperation. Bongolian (talk) 02:54, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
thank you! — Z 03:11, 5 July 2020 (UTC)

@RWRW Mind undoing your latest "preemptive strike"? Consider me the messenger. — Dysk (contribs) 02:17, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

I've seen nobody really object to Ze getting tech back so sure. --RWRW (talk) 17:21, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, it's really unfair to punish someone because of their sibling's behavior. Bongolian (talk) 18:28, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Autopatrolled: Kiko4564

@LeftyGreenMario I've been here a while, and no one gave me autopatrolled yet. As I haven't done anything majorly wrong, is there any chance that I can be demoted please? Kiko4564 (talk) 22:35, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, sure, why not. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 22:50, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

Tech: The Crow

We need more techs. We lost three in the past few months. I nominate myself. Requisite skills I have:

  • I know how to use HTML/CSS.
  • I know, but really don't like JavaScript and PHP since I believe they're fundamentally flawed languages.
  • I've been using MediaWiki on and off for about 7 years for personal sites.
  • The Edit Filter is simply regex, I know how to regex, and in doubt I can pull up regex101.
  • I have Google-fu, and did recently do research on Echo (the notification system).

I promise hereby to also not wield my power in any way that would run contrary to that of the mob, nor will I parade around with my power as if I were a moderator. Sirius (dog star) 22:03, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

I endorse you for what it's worth, but we recently went over the fact that the rules explicit state Trent, and I guess Gerard, create techs. This vote is a nullity. Having votes for techs has been raised and rejected multiple times. Nutty Roux (talk) 18:24, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
Please reference our current CS, as well as a fairly long voting and suggestion period about these things (and David approved the changes). The rules don't explicitly state it's just Trent or Gerard, given that the only techs who were instated by Trent or Gerard were you and Bertran, and Bertran isn't active as far as I can tell. In the light of both not having to bother mostly inactive users as well as to prevent them from becoming a cabal, I proposed that new process for appointing techs and it was generally lauded. Unless the RMF bylaws say anything about techs (and a quick glance at the wiki page on them suggests no such thing), as far as I'm aware, the rules in general sense reflect the process that we underwent here (mostly, technically the vote is open for 2 weeks as per process, but unless a bunch of ppl suddenly vote against me, I doubt it'd change the outcome). Sirius (dog star) 18:34, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
I didn't see that part get tacked on. Wow, that's a dumb rule now. Carry on. Nutty Roux (talk) 18:41, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
It's less than ideal in a few ways, but techs have the sort of control-the-horizontal-and-vertical that sysops do on lesser wikis. And I'm actively doing my best to be as absentee as is feasible. So having non-idiots endorsed as non-idiots by the Mob (praise be) at least minimises my presentness - David Gerard (talk) 18:56, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Endorsement

Any tech/mod/Operations Manager can endorse me. Please leave your signature below if you do.

  • I endorse Crow for tech. He's well trusted, knows what he's doing (as seen in his statement, and his creation of a pretty useful bot). And in my opinion we could use a couple more techs. --RWRW (talk) 22:10, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Hey I just like to remove red links and tidy up my user page. I was about to go on a massive Jihad against red links for various deleted pages but figured I should check if I can get these rights before shitting up the whole ass recent changes. Thanks WHAT a "KNEESLAPPER" F R I E N D I O 11:15, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

Request granted. Sally forth. Nutty Roux (talk) 12:21, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

Request

Please add +Sysop, +Staff, +Ninja, and +Autopatrolled to this account. Remove corresponding rights from User:D when done. Thanks. Judge Dredd (talk) 09:57, 22 September 2020 (UTC)

1) This is the wrong place to request rights. 2) We don't hand out and steal rights like candy. Bongolian (talk) 16:42, 22 September 2020 (UTC)
The sheer idiocy of that statement makes me suspect that you aren't paying attention. 1) This is RationalWiki:Requests for user rights, 2) I'm asking for my userrights to be transferred, it's not rocket science. Judge Dredd (talk) 17:42, 22 September 2020 (UTC)

All I can add is sysop and autopatrolled. The rest you're gonna have to annoy somebody else for. Oxyaena Harass 19:58, 22 September 2020 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Reinstated staff (it's a pure vanity role and only grants edit access to the MW namespace). I'm hesitant to reinstate ninja, given the coop incident, which makes me wary of giving Dredd/Dysk the option to somewhat obscure his actions. Another tech can do that if they want. Removed all rights from User:D. Sirius (dog star) 20:02, 22 September 2020 (UTC)

I agree, it would be inadvisable to give Ninja to D's socks given what has transpired. @Ace McWicked, RWRW, Scream!!, and Spud I fail to see the point of yet another sock from D unless it is more of throwing people off the trail. Bongolian (talk) 01:48, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

Well, there's no sockpuppetry as such going on. We know who this user is (as much as we ever know who anybody is). We're just seeing the consequences of another hasty LANCB and a forgotten password. But, yeah. I'd agree that's enough rights for now. No ninja. Spud (talk) 05:53, 23 September 2020 (UTC)
Alrightly thanks mate. I can't personally see why Ninja is sensitive now for me to lose that right, but I can ask a tech for a bot flag later. @Bongolian Tsk tsk, another sock implies that I previously used more than one account... to which I say, Proof?

You've got a lot of gall asking me for proof, when 1) you've had a number of socks documented on WP during that dramafest and 2) You're well-aware that the only way that I could provide solid proof on RW without your cooperation would be to commit the same offense for which you're likely to lose tech status.
