You are absolutely right, and that is oblivious requirements, but all 
the time I trying to tell something different.

I just wanted to show part of his appeal on that request page:

*I would like to receive sysop privileges so that I can help translate 
the Commons to Hebrew. I would also like some informtaion on the 
translation process.*


As you can see, he didn't know the translation process, and the reason 
for asking is to translate - assuming that he need (someone told him ) 
to have that privilege.

It's seem to me quite clear, that here is miss-understanding problem, 
and still some people don't see it.
