It recently came to my attention that the Wikidata administration team is considered understaffed and new members would be welcomed to deal with tedious everyday tasks. I hereby offer myself for that position and request approval by the Wikidata community to service our project with sysop rights.

I became a Wikimedia editor in November 2012 via German Wikipedia and started to work with Wikidata soon after. Statistical details about my contribution can be found here. In all Wikimedia projects I topically work in sports-related fields, but I also do a lot of general maintenance work to keep things clean and useful. In the case of Wikidata this includes covi page supervision, property and property talk page maintenance, occasionally RC patrolling, item merging, and plenty of other smaller tasks. Furthermore I participate in community discussions and helpdesks, such as WD:Project chat, WD:Forum (German equivalent), as well as WD:Request a query, and try to act as a Wikidata ambassador at German Wikipedia, a community which is unfortunately pretty skeptical about our project. With 228k+ Wikidata edits to my account I have of course been involved in some controversial discussions, but my behavior has never been regarded problematic to my knowledge. I have never been blocked or called to admin attention in any Wikimedia project, and I also do not have or had any other accounts besides this one (User:MsynBot is a designated bot account owned by me, without any edits and with no plans to activate it).

The decision to offer my service to the community was made spontaneously within the past two days after I heard about a shortage of administrative workforce. Since I am involved in many (non-sysop) janitorial tasks at Wikidata anyway, I think that I am generally well prepared for this position. In case of a successful RfA I would thus help the administration team to deal with everyday tasks, particularly item deletion and RC/CVN work (vandal blocks, item protection …). WD:Administrators' noticeboard is already on my watchlist for a prolonged time, so I am somewhat familiar with the topics discussed over there. Since this would be my first sysop position, I’d start with simple cases to familiarize myself with the extra tools and dig deeper into the business with time.

I speak German (native) and English (quite okay). In case of questions feel free to ask. Happy voting! —MisterSynergy (talk) 15:00, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

As my previous speaker I heard of the fact, that admins are needed in Wikidata. At Wikidata:Forum we identified many empty items (~ 6.700) which now are flooding Wikidata:RfD. If the community gives me sysop rights, I can help with that and everyday work.

I am Admin at dewiki and wikipedia user for over 10 years. I have started to contribute to Wikidata in the end of 2013. Since then I did over 700,000 edits, mostly with helping tools like Quick Statements, Harvest Template and Pet Scan. Mainly I contribute in the film section. As member of the Wikidata:WikiProject Movies I tested a lot with Mix'n'match catalogs. Further more I am very active in working with constraint violations.

If you support my request, I would be happy about your vote.

Comments[edit]

  • today I marked some 200 deletion requests by you as not done, including some high quality items like no label (Q29974825). If you have the admin rights would you have deleted all these items? --Pasleim (talk) 15:28, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
    The items are taken from WDQ, they are all empty except for some valid items, which are wrong listed. I would, of course, not delete them. Queryzo (talk) 20:45, 22 May 2017 (UTC) PS: I apologize for listing the Civil Parish items, but I couldn’t withdraw them as I recognized they are notable.
  • BTW, how easy it is to undelete page here? d1g (talk) 17:27, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
    @D1gggg: What do you mean with that? Queryzo (talk) 20:45, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Most of your RfDs are fine. However, I am concerned with what Pasleim has said. It is good that you want to help, but I am not sure if you took the time to check the items thoroughly before nominating them for deletion. Accuracy is more important than speed. I have declined some of your RfDs. Anyway, I am striking my support for now. Jianhui67 talkcontribs 18:42, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Currently, there's the notice on the administrator's notice bot to "promote more adminbots or hurry the developers" given the huge deletion backlog. I want to have the permission to help with the current problem and other admin tasks. I joined Wikidata last year and I'm heavily involved in discussions in the Project Chat and the creation for new properties. Before I had proposal creation rights there was often a larger backlog of properties that were marked as ready but which haven't been created and I did a lot of work to create proposal to combat that backlog. --ChristianKl (talk) 12:46, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
