Requesting for Adminstration

I would like to be a Administrator here for having access to Special:ReplaceText, I think after near one year activity here and near 2k edit I have enough experience for using this extension wisely. I don't know granting access in translatewiki is community based or not but I think the Persian translators community can trust me for having this access. Special:ReplaceText is very good for finding exact instance of one Regex template in texts and I think I know needed Regex sufficient.

      Sorry to step in here. ReplaceText is not to be used by users with the Administrator/sysop role; we reserve usage of this functionality to staff. I am removing this right for administrators. We suggest using a pywikipediabot.

        ops, pywikipedia for crawling near 2milion pages? really? okay, I want to know read-only ReplaceText is not applicable for you? (for manually editing)

            Please explain your problem. I can provide a list of pages in a particular language.

              This is good, but the thing that I really need is having a tool for finding occurrence of a regex (and chars) on that pages. I know with list of my language translations I can do that with pywikipedia (I used pywikipedia in my wikipedia for a lot propuses). But this can done better and easier without that.

              For example we have some hidden character in Persian (zwnj, zwj and direction control chars that is common in RTL languages). If I had a tool for finding misused occurrence of them in translation, I could easily fix them. For example this regex needed for my language (and some languages with Arabic script): s/([ازرذدژوة])\u200c/\1/g also finding non-standard chars (for my languages) with Special:Search is not possible because Special:Search only yields occurrence of words and not chars.
