Requests and proposals Steward requests (Permissions) latest archive
This page is for requests to have stewards grant or revoke administrator, bureaucrat, checkuser, and oversight rights on Wikimedia projects which do not have a local permissions procedure.

Old sections are archived by a bot. Click here for a list of archives.

  • If you are requesting adminship or bureaucratship, and your wiki has a local bureaucrat, submit your request to that user or to the relevant local request page (index).
  • For urgent requests, such as to combat large-scale vandalism on a small wiki, contact a steward in the #wikimedia-stewardsconnect IRC channel. In emergencies, type !steward in the channel to get the attention of stewards. Otherwise, you can type @steward for non-urgent help.

Other than requests to remove your own access or emergencies, please only make requests here after gaining the on-wiki approval of your local community.

Meta-Wiki requests

Using this pageEdit

1. Place the following code at the bottom of the appropriate section below:

==== User name@xxproject ====
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    = <!-- such as en.wikibooks -->
 |user name =
 |discussion= 
}}
(your remarks) ~~~~

2. Fill in the values:

  • domain: the wiki's URL domain (like "ex.wikipedia" or "meta.wikimedia").
  • user name: the name of the user whose rights are to be changed (like "Exampleuser"). In case you're requesting access for multiple bots, leave this field blank and give a list of these bots in your remarks
  • discussion: a link to the local vote or discussion about the rights change (for example, "[[ex:Wikipedia:Requests_for_adminship#ExampleUser]]").

3. If anything is missing from your request, a steward will request more information.

Confirmation of signing confidentiality agreementEdit

Certain permissions (notably CheckUser and Oversight) additionally require users to sign a confidentiality agreement. Users requesting these permissions must make a request below, and must also sign the confidentiality agreement with the Wikimedia Foundation. The request is placed on hold temporarily, until the receipt has been formally confirmed by the Office.

RequestsEdit

COPY THE FOLLOWING CODE to the bottom of the appropriate section below:

==== User name@xxproject ====

Administrator accessEdit

See administrator for information about this user group.

  • MediaWiki interface translations are done at translatewiki.net. Please do not request administrator access solely for that purpose; your request will be declined.

  • Stewards: Please use {{Systmp}} for approved temporary requests.

Requests for removal of access should be posted at the section below.

For permanent adminship, please provide a link to the local community approval. For temporary adminship please state for how long and for which tasks you need it, and link to a local announcement.

H78c67c@yuewiktionaryEdit

Either temporary or permanent is fine; and I forgot to make the request last week :(, please let me know if I need to initiate a local vote again.--H78c67c (talk) 15:08, 3 October 2019 (UTC)
H78c67c, yes, kindly initiate a local vote again, please. That is the standard process we follow. --Base (talk) 23:12, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
@Base: Thanks for your reply. Is there a particular threshold for getting permanent adminship? Thanks! --H78c67c (talk) 08:11, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
H78c67c, I am afraid that given the current activity in the project permanent adminship is not possible. That being said for temporary adminship it is okay if no one votes at all, also normally each subsequent temporary adminship is given for a longer period unless there are reasons not to do that. --Base (talk) 22:06, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
@Base: I see. So obviously I could only get a temporary adminship, could I just leave a note in the community noticeboard (or relevant pages, just as I did a few weeks ago at wikt:yue:Special:Permalink/14742#管理員權限)? --H78c67c (talk) 03:37, 6 October 2019 (UTC)
@Base: Hi. Not sure if you overlooked my last message. I would greatly appreciate it if you would leave a quick response so that I could know whether the process is necessary or not. (As a matter of fact I forgot to renew my rights, please accept my apology if that caused any inconveniences)--H78c67c (talk) 10:17, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
H78c67c, hi, sorry I had little time to address the backlog here. It is better if you hold a vote just as though you would be obtaining the permissions for the first time. --Base (talk) 12:48, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

Mirzali@diq.wikipediaEdit

We need an admin in Zazaki Wikipedia, who will hep us. Mirzali is cut out for this job, he helps a lot and he is doing a very good job. Vuzorg (talk) 19:28, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

Mirzali is editing the articles of Zazaki Wikipedia for years with diligence and accuracy. As an admin he would be a great help for us other admins. --Asmeno (talk) 20:52, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Please, start a local discussion and place a link to it here. Ruslik (talk) 08:48, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Vuzorg, do you have an explanation on what is going on in that discussion? While I think it is valid in general, as there are genuine contributors voting, I also see it being overwhelmed by people who seem to have specifically registered to leave their vote on that page. Was there some call on social media given? In general it is a very discouraged practice. It is absolutely fine if there are few voters, but those voters should be community members. --Base (talk) 02:10, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

Eihel@ukwikivoyageEdit

Hello,
Dimon2711 propelled me autopatrolled and rollbacker in June of this year after a patrol (SWMT) on this wiki. I have no idea why he did this, but now that I have these rights on this wiki, I try to go there from time to time to make small corrections, to help. For vandalism, there is not much movement. So I was interested in lint errors, but there are protected pages. I'd like to make these small changes in the coming month, let's say late November. There are no active administrators on this wiki, but I have already made changes about these errors on unprotected pages. As you have understood, these are not administrative actions as conceived, but only to edit pages that are inaccessible for the good of WM. With thanks. —Eihel (talk) 21:02, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

(non-steward comment) Is there a discussion on-wiki for your request for adminship? Do you speak Ukrainian? Vermont (talk) 22:27, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
Disregard the discussion question; we edit conflicted when you added that. Vermont (talk) 22:28, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

Rectification: Since, I went around. In fact, there are only 3 protected pages that I would like to modify. Based on this observation, I only ask you 2 weeks after the decision of the Ukrainian community. Thank you. —Eihel (talk) 03:29, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Saimawnkham@shnwikipediaEdit

My adminship at shn.wikipedia expired at 16th October 2019. So I want to request for adminship. I hope you could give me a long term adminship. Thanks.Saimawnkham (talk) 02:22, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Saimawnkham, please start a new request for adminship on shnwiki and provide the link to it here. Thanks. --Base (talk) 17:24, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
Saimawnkham,   Granted for 1 year to expire on 2020-10-23. . Thank you for doing what you do :) --Base (talk) 01:46, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
Thank you so much Base. I will do my best.Saimawnkham (talk) 05:00, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

Theklan@euwikisourceEdit

The voting was both for administrator and bureaucrat, but as bureaucrat can't be done for a small community I ask for the permanent administrator part. Theklan (talk) 22:14, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

I do see a consensus to grant you a permanent adminship status. Only 3 editors with a significant number of contributions have voted for you. Ruslik (talk) 20:26, 20 October 2019 (UTC)
@Theklan: Ruslik (talk) 17:45, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
Yes, the community is small yet. -Theklan (talk) 17:56, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

kaganer@inhwikipediaEdit

For help to improve infobox templates (adding lost classes into Common.css). Either temporary or permanent. If temporary, that at least 1 month. NB: I'm have this access in some wikis, and also experioence in the helping admins of this wiki in past ;) This request has been initiated by the current wiki admin. --Kaganer (talk) 19:16, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

See Interface admin for information about this user group.

  • If you are requesting adminship and the interface admin at the same time, you can file one request in administrator section and state you want interface adminship as well.
  • MediaWiki interface translations are done at translatewiki.net. Please do not request interface administrator access solely for that purpose; your request will be declined.
  • Since the end of 2018 all interface administrators are required to have two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled. Please, enable it before posting your request here.

  • Stewards: Please use {{Systmp}} for approved temporary requests.

Requests for removal of access should be posted at the section below.

For permanent interface adminship, please provide a link to the local community approval. For temporary interface adminship please state for how long and for which tasks you need it, and link to a local announcement.

H78c67c@yuewiktionaryEdit

Pending local vote just as with the admin flag. --Base (talk) 23:26, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
Hello Base. it's worth noting that local discussion was started on Sept. 18 and no one has voted since. I'm just curious about whether that would affect the applictaion. Thanks. --Super Wang hates PC You hate, too? 08:47, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

ויקג'אנקי@hewikivoyage and DL3222@hewikivoyageEdit

Our interface admin permissions were expired about a month ago. Please extend it by another one year. DL3222 (talk) 17:32, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Adam-Yourist@inhwikipediaEdit

I am the administrator of the Wikipedia section in the Ingush language. I need permanent interface administrator rights. For help to improve infobox templates (adding lost classes into Common.css). Adam-Yourist (talk) 19:58, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

Bureaucrat accessEdit

See bureaucrat for information about this user group.
  • In principle, requests for temporary bureaucrat access are not granted.

Requests for removal of access should be posted at the section below.

CheckUser accessEdit

See CheckUser policy for information about this user group and the policy governing the use of this tool.
  • To request CheckUser information, see Steward requests/Checkuser. This is the place to request CheckUser access.
  • Temporary CheckUser access is not permitted and temporary access is only used by stewards.

Oversight accessEdit

See Oversight policy for information about this user group and the policy governing the use of this tool.
  • To request to have content oversighted, ask for a steward in #wikimedia-stewardsconnect and contact a steward privately. This section is for requesting access to the Oversight tool.
  • For contact details about oversighters across the wikis, refer to this page.
  • Note that temporary Oversight access is not permitted and temporary status is only used by stewards.

  • When a new user is assigned to this group, please add them to this list.

Removal of accessEdit

  • If you're requesting the removal of your own permissions, make sure you're logged in to your account. If you have multiple flags, specify which you want removed. Stewards may delay your request a short time to ensure you have time to rethink your request (see previous discussion on 24 hour delays); the rights will not be restored by stewards once they are removed.
  • To request the removal of another user's permissions, you must gain consensus on the local wiki first. When there is community consensus that the user's access should be removed, a trusted user from that wiki should provide a link here to the discussion, a brief explanation of the reason for the request, and summarize the results of discussion. However, as bureaucrats of some wikis may remove users from the administrator or bureaucrat group, please see also a separate list of these specific wikis.
  • See the instructions above for adding new requests. Please post new requests at the bottom of the section.

Miscellaneous requestsEdit

Requests for permissions that don't fit in other sections belong here. Importer rights can be granted on most wikis by stewards only. Please gain local community consensus before posting a new section here.

Note that the following types of permissions requests belong on separate pages:

  • SRB — Local or global bot status
  • SRGP — Global permissions

User Sushant_savla@guwikisourceEdit

  Done, although you would better define necessary sources for interwiki import. Ruslik (talk) 17:44, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
