Anything else?[ñɔɔzɩ wikicode]

Is there anything else the system administrators need to do (that can't be done on-wiki by normal users or cross-wiki admins) to configure this wiki properly? - dcljr (ndɔncɔɔlɩyɛ) 28 Hasɩyaɖɛ fenaɣ 2017 à 18:31 (GMT)

Hi dcljr (ndɔncɔɔlɩyɛ), thanks for asking. I'm not quite sure what your responsibilities are as a system administrator, but here are a few ideas:
  • It would be great to have a more attractive home page (Talɩ ɖeu) with featured articles. Any idea how to set that up?
  • On this page, the search box contains the incubator prefix "Wp/kbp" by default, and one incubator article is listed under this (Wp/kbp/Ɛsɔgaɣ ɖɔnɛ lɛɣtʋ). Can both of these be deleted please?
  • On the incubator, I had administrator rights, and am trying to find out how to renew these now we're on the real platform. Is that something you can help me with please? Gnangbade (ndɔncɔɔlɩyɛ) 16 Kɩyɛɛna fenaɣ 2017 à 19:25 (GMT)
Note that I am just an ordinary user, not a sysadmin (who respond to Phabricator requests of various sorts), nor an admin or steward (which this wiki lacks at the moment). Here are my thoughts on each item:
  • Regarding Talɩ ɖeu, I would suggest you look though the Main Pages of the other Wikipedias (especially ones for similar/related languages) and find one you like. Then copy the wikicode over and adapt it for this wiki. (I strongly recommend you start with something simple, though, as this wiki would surely lack any templates or Lua modules required to implement anything too fancy.)
  • I don't see the "Wp/kbp" prefix at Spécial:Index. I'm guessing you followed a link to that page that already contained that prefix. (If so, just edit the page where that link came from.) To be more specific: if you follow a link to Spécial:Index that contains a prefix, that prefix will appear in the search box (and the namespace will be pre-selected if the prefix is, or starts with, a valid namespace name). See, for example: Spécial:Index/CoolNewPrefix and Spécial:Index/Modèle:CoolNewPrefix (and the last 2 links in the previous bullet point).
  • As for deleting badly-named pages, that can only be done once this wiki has a local admin (in the meantime, "emergencies" can be handled by making a request at m:Steward requests/Miscellaneous). Tagging the page with the {{delete}} template is an approach that should work whether or not a local admin exists: stewards can see pages tagged for deletion across different wikis and are able to delete "obvious cases"; anything that requires knowledge of the local language, however, (or may be controversial for some reason) will have to wait until there's a local admin.
  • To become an admin on this wiki, first start a discussion at some local page that is appropriate for discussing picking administrators. (While the discussion could happen here on this talk page, it's probably better to create a dedicated page in the project namespace and just announce its existence here.) On other wikis such discussions might happen at their Village Pump or at a more specific page called, say, Wikipedia:Requests for adminship. (Obviously, the page title should be in Kabiye, if you can do that.) After getting community consensus for making you an admin (permanent or temporary), make a request at m:Steward requests/Permissions. In the future, if someone becomes a bureaucrat on this wiki (again, none yet), then requests to become an admin (following community consensus) can be handled locally by that user (i.e., bureaucrats can add users to, and remove users from, different user groups).
Good luck! [grin] - dcljr (ndɔncɔɔlɩyɛ) 17 Kɩyɛɛna fenaɣ 2017 à 22:23 (GMT)
