spam[athraigh]

This and this should be deleted. Please either delete them or give me the rights to do so. Thank you. Llwy-ar-lawr 22:34, 26 Bealtaine 2013 (UTC)

Nolok has moved these pages and replaced them with something translating roughly to 'write new article here' but they should just be deleted. Please...? Llwy-ar-lawr 21:11, 31 Bealtaine 2013 (UTC)

block???[athraigh]

You blocked Nolok for vandalism. He didn't do any, not knowingly at least depending on your definition of it. Please unblock him. I would have given him admin or rollback rights, personally - he's an Irish speaker and he's making an honest effort to improve the wiki. I don't understand at all.

And for a year! You don't do that. You tell the person to stop doing what they're doing and explain why it's wrong. If they don't let up, you block for a day or something. Not a year. Never a year unless you have to. Why so long and all of a sudden?
Sorry, I'm yelling at you. I have to go to bed actually. Good night. Llwy-ar-lawr 02:09, 6 Meitheamh 2013 (UTC)
Ok, now I've cooled off somewhat...
I usually respect your administrative actions but this block just appalls me. I suspect that you considered Nolok's moving of the spam pages to be vandalism, or at best unconstructive. I see what he (she?) did as settling for second best - the pages obviously needed deleting, but since he hasn't got the permissions to do so, he renamed them to 'new page' and replaced their text with 'write new article here'. This is why I say I would make him able to delete pages. He should have been able to because that's what needed to be done and he seems to realise that quite well.
As for his other edits, I think he was trying to put pages in certain categories but didn't know how. That was not vandalism. In short, I can't see any valid reason for the block and would like you to either remove the block or make me an administrator. I would be very happy to take on that role but of course the first thing I will do is to remove that block.
Why would I like to be an admin? I am willing and able to clean up really bad messes, for starters. As well, my knowledge of Irish may be next to nonexistent but I can say quite a few sentences and have enough passive knowledge to be able to tell roughly what a piece of text is saying. I believe this is enough to justify putting me in charge of the wiki; I am also trying to learn more so one day I may be able to improve our number of articles.
For future cases like this block, I'd like to propose a new policy for all tiny minority-language wikis: administrators who do not speak the wiki's language should never block someone who does and has used that language exclusively in their edits. You don't know what the person is doing, so blocking them is a bad idea. Llwy-ar-lawr 01:54, 7 Meitheamh 2013 (UTC)
Oops, just looked through Nolok's contribs again and realised I was wrong about the pages in categories - he had put the Oliver Cromwell article under category names in error, then realised his mistake and moved it to where it belonged, leaving a link in the category pages to where the article now was. That is not vandalism, but rather a new user slowly discovering how a wiki works.
Nolok has also done some quite useful things: he has translated a good chunk of the Saint Patrick article, which used to be entirely in English (see this edit for example), and he reverted vandalism to the main page. The main page is unprotected, you see, so anyone can vandalise it. (So did I, just to prove the point.)
Anyway, since you do not seem to be around here just now, I will be contacting you on your talk pages on other wikis. Please reverse the block if you find time, and admin rights for me would be nice as well. Or at least rollback. Llwy-ar-lawr 13:40, 7 Meitheamh 2013 (UTC)

Give an explanation of why I did it. For a long time that all wikis (or most) users have been attacked by robots and the pages that were created were his friend with similar titles. Unfortunately, my task in many uncys has been deter this kind of thing and apparently realized he was a novice user vandalizing and because of that I gave this lock time. The lock will be removed immediately. Rhubella Rat.jpgRhubella Marie, an preppie stanca francach {{#ec:Rhubella Marie}} preppieditsRhubella.jpg 22:56, 8 Meitheamh 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I agree with the idea. And I confess that it is not the first time that I make a mistake assuming block a bot or an alleged vandal potential. I believe that as there are more users in these wikis these small errors can lead to conflicts that can not produce counter the growth of wikis. And at the moment we have powers of administration in 2 wikis coincident. Tomorrow I will suggest this kind of thing in UnMeta.
The page was protected so... for a period of one year. ¬¬ Rhubella Rat.jpgRhubella Marie, an preppie stanca francach {{#ec:Rhubella Marie}} preppieditsRhubella.jpg 23:03, 8 Meitheamh 2013 (UTC)
Thanks much. Now I would really like you to go to Speisialta:UserRights/Llwy-ar-lawr and check a box or two, if you trust me enough; sorry to keep pestering you about this. (You may also want to go to Speisialta:Block/Llwy-ar-lawr and set the expiry to two weeks, seeing as it's already been done on English, Welsh and Belarusian uncycs. I have a lot of homework...)
Lastly: Please do stop marking your talk page posts as minor. They are not. The box by 'Mionathrú é seo' should be unchecked. Thank you. Llwy-ar-lawr 18:41, 9 Meitheamh 2013 (UTC)
I can only do the second thing because I'm only admin here. In the case of their powers as administrator or bureaucrat will have to ask directly Cartoonist. Possibly I can conversasr to him about it.
