From a phabricator discussion, user rights were discussed and assigned under the auspices of WMSE's hosting of 2019 Wikimania.

The following rights were issued

Jon Harald Søby (WMNO)

Hi, I'd like to help out here with what I can. Therefore I would like to request translatiom administrator rights, and perhaps also administrator and interface administrator rights (with which I have extensive experience from various wikis). They can be set to temporary until a little while after Wikimania 2019 ends, I don't think I will be involved in any work capacity (i.e. this WMNO account) for Wikimania 2020. Jon Harald Søby (WMNO) (talk) 10:46, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

I am comfortable giving translation admin rights Yes check.svg Done and supporting your experience in administration and interface administrator, though leaving those decisions with WMSE representaives.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:59, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
Returning section from archiving, for consideration.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:18, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
In support. I can give you administration and interface administrator rights. Eric Luth (WMSE) (talk) 08:05, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

User:sDrewthbot, bot of user:billinghurst

Bot to be used to create language/translation subpages of Wikimania:Mediawiki pages with translations and to avoid flooding Special:RecentChanges, and may be used for similar language creation requirements, where envisaged.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:28, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Self-granted rights for what should be a non-controversial task, and hope that doesn't cause a ruckus.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:28, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
Hearty +1, for the record. ;-) Quiddity (talk) 05:16, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

Brackenheim

Hi, I would like to request sysop & TA flag. I had such flags on wm2015, wm2016, wm2017, wm2018 and I want to help on this wiki as well. Maybe I also can help as bureaucrat? Kind regards, --Brackenheim (talk) 13:26, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

Yes check.svg granted for translation admin.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:52, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Thank you! This wiki is quit new, so do you think I could get sysop flag one day? I would like to translate parts of MediaWiki:Sidebar ... --Brackenheim (talk) 12:26, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
The current process is that the organising Chapter/organising committee is setting the parameters for rights assignation; so WMSE currently is controlling assignations of the higher rights.

With regard to the sidebar, I believe that I am up-to-date with the terms, and there is a method in place to collect terms through Wikimania:Mediawiki pages with translations .  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:34, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Quiddity

Requesting Interface-admin per Billinghurst's suggestion, and so that I can stop pestering him to do things for me :) I'm fully-familiar with the level of caution that needs to be used when utilizing these rights. Quiddity (talk) 07:43, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

Revi

I used to have admin/TA on wikimania17 and wikimania18wiki for combating spam/vandalism/helping with Translate. Now that this wiki will be the permanent home for future wikimanias I think we can avoid future re-adminships on each wiki / each year by getting an admin/TA for once (and for all)? — regards, Revi 11:44, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

@Eric Luth (WMSE): Can you have a look at ^ and Quiddity's one? — regards, Revi 12:30, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
I will approve your and Quiddity's. Eric Luth (WMSE) (talk) 12:38, 5 July 2019 (UTC)

Exec8

I propose that exec8, as one of the core persons in the organizing committee of Wikimania 2020, becomes an administrator on this wiki. Eric Luth (WMSE) (talk) 13:17, 10 December 2019 (UTC)

It is the purpose of the organising committee to appoint its admins, and set the approach for the next cycle, so I believe we shall tick this one, and move on. I had tried asking WMF staff at meta to no avail, so glad that someone has the contacts. @Exec: do you also want 'crat rights so that you can assign rights to those assisting you, or will you utilise this page to get us to undertake the process on your behalf? (noting that it is open question allowing for any future decision).  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:38, 10 December 2019 (UTC)
