Import of dates parsed from wikipedia military conflict infoboxes[edit]

Please, take a look at my request. Discussion seems not too hot. Magnus Manske and Navino Evans support my request, Wojtek (aka Wostr) doesn't support it because these data has wikipedia as the only source. – The preceding unsigned comment was added by VorontsovIE (talk • contribs) at 4. 4. 2018, 16:36‎ (UTC).

Flagging three bureaucrats as interface administrator[edit]

As of today, administrators can no edit css/js files MediaWiki namespace anymore. Following Wikidata:Interface administrators and the need for crats to edit MediaWiki:Gadget-markAdmins.js when a new admin is promoted, I will grant the flag to myself, Lymantria, and Vogone, since we are all eligible to get it according to the transition rule.--Ymblanter (talk) 13:21, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

  • Shouldn't admins/bureaucrats ask for it rather then be granted it by default nor grant it to themselves?
    --- Jura 13:34, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
    I asked myself, and if Lymantria or Vogone object I am sure they will let me know. I am not going to give any more flags without explicit requests. I do not see anything in the policy about not granting the flag to myself.--Ymblanter (talk) 13:35, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
    Well, it's says "request" not grant, contrary to staff.

    "As a transitional rule, any administrators elected before August 27, 2018 (and who have not lost adminship before requesting interface adminship) may get interface adminship speedily before February 27, 2019."--Ymblanter (talk) 13:51, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
    Speedily is quicker than 7 days. I thought the whole point of having this is that it isn't added by default to any account.
    --- Jura 13:55, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
    Here, we have a clear need for the tools - for example, on Thursday we might need to promote a new admin, and I might be not available - then someone has to do it. For other users, I will indeed require a request (though with the transitional rule if a request is valid we can just grant the flag).--Ymblanter (talk) 14:00, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
    Consider my flag requested. Lymantria (talk) 15:05, 27 August 2018 (UTC) P.S. And most likely I will be available next thursday. Lymantria (talk) 15:06, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Please grant me the flag as well. Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 15:37, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
