Steward requests/Permissions

Requests and proposals Steward requests (Permissions) latest archive
Shortcut:
SRP
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.

Cross-wiki requests
Meta-Wiki requests

Using this pageEdit

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

==== Username@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 ====
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    =
 |user name =
 |discussion= 
}}

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.

Please start a new discussion about requesting the permission on the local village pump, administrators' noticeboard or a designated page for requesting permissions each time you request or renew adminship.

  • Discussions should be open for seven days. Please request adminship here seven days after discussions started. This page is not the place for any discussions or votes. (For wikis with few active users, it is OK to have no comments.)
  • If you only want adminship for specific tasks, please state for how long and for which tasks you need it. Otherwise stewards will decide whether to assign permanent adminship and the duration of adminship. See Steward requests/Permissions/Minimum voting requirements.

Katariq@qu.wikipediaEdit

Seven months ago, I get admin rights in the Quechua Wikipedia, my period ended, and I ask the community for a prolongation. I would like to request both admin and interface admin grants. I am a native Quechua speaker, and I made a lot of improvements in that Wiki. I would like to continue with this work. Thank you very much--Katariq (talk) 04:36, 5 June 2021 (UTC)

I have done the administrator flag, but you need Help:2FA enabled for interface administrator. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 13:30, 5 June 2021 (UTC)
@Katariq Please see Amanda's note above. Martin Urbanec (talk) 06:43, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
  Done for admin,   Not done for IA (not meeting WMF policy on interface adminship). --Martin Urbanec (talk) 10:30, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
Excuse me , I just saw today this. I needed to reply this, but it seems too late: "I would like to inform you that the oathauth user right is not enabled for me". Thank you for your consideration anyways.--Katariq (talk) 4:11, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
@Katariq: Given that you're an admin at quwiki now, you may enable 2FA at qu:Special:OATH. Please take a look at H:2FA first though. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:21, 12 June 2021 (UTC)
Setting status to   On hold to avoid archiving. Please let us know when you enable 2FA. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 12:52, 13 June 2021 (UTC)
@Katariq Can you please enable 2FA? Martin Urbanec (talk) 12:12, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

Erokhin@ru.wikibooksEdit

We need a permanent administrator. There is a lot of admin's work to be done in this project. Last. --Erokhin (talk) 14:32, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

Erokhin can`t be permanent administrator - only temporary.According to the rules of Wikibooks:
  • He needs 3-5 votes in support for temporary administration and 6 votes for permanent. According to ВУ:ЗСА.
Kylaix (talk) 06:48, 13 June 2021 (UTC)

Kunokuno@bcl.wikipediaEdit

I would like to extend my administrator rights and help secure and provide assistance for new users on our local wikipedia. Kunokuno (talk) 10:58, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

  On hold for one week until June 21, 2021. Local announcement posted on June 14. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:38, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

Tahmid@bpy.wikipediaEdit

I was granted adminship for three month. That period will end next sunday (20 June). So, I am requesting to prolong my adminship.

Note: The local discussion started on 9 June however no one commented. And discussion ended yesterday. T@hmid (T@lk) 06:37, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

Yumeto@zh-classical.wikipediaEdit

Per voting. If possible, please grant a permanent permission. Konno Yumeto 12:02, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

Interface administrator accessEdit

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.

Please start a new discussion about requesting the permission on the local village pump, administrators' noticeboard or a designated page for requesting permissions each time you request or renew interface adminship.

  • Discussions should be open for seven days. Please request interface adminship here seven days after discussions started. This page is not the place for any discussions or votes. (For wikis with few active users, it is OK to have no comments.)
  • If you only want interface adminship for specific tasks, please state for how long and for which tasks you need it. Otherwise stewards will decide whether to assign permanent interface adminship and the duration of interface adminship. See Steward requests/Permissions/Minimum voting requirements.

Fierodelveneto@vec.wiktionaryEdit

The user in question would like to become an interface administrator as well as an administrator. A regular vote was held with a favorable outcome. Thank you --- Vajotwo (post) 18:40, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

@Vajotwo Please note that @Fierodelveneto will have to have enable two-factor authentication to become an interface admin at vec.wiktionary (see Interface admin). Could that be done please? They should already be able to turn on 2FA vec.wiktionary as they're a regular admin there. Martin Urbanec (talk) 14:52, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec Good morning. I am already an administrator of vec.wiki. I have some experience in the field. Today Wiktionary in the Venetian language has been without administration for more than a year and there is the absolute need to import scripts useful for its development and the absolute urgency to update the antispam and vandal filters. Thanks for the advice.--ꜰɪᴇʀᴏᴅᴇʟᴠᴇɴᴇᴛᴏ (Talk)-(Scrìvame in vec.wiki)-(Contributions) 16:10, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
@Fierodelveneto You still need to enable two-factor authentication in order to be able to be an interface administrator. This is a requirement on all wikis imposed by the Wikimedia Foundation, see Interface administrators. Please enable 2FA to be an interface administrator.
Thank you, Martin Urbanec (talk) 12:20, 17 June 2021 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec But is it not possible to get the code by email or SMS? it's quite annoying to have another application on your smartphone! Either way I did !. --ꜰɪᴇʀᴏᴅᴇʟᴠᴇɴᴇᴛᴏ (Talk)-(Scrìvame in vec.wiki)-(Contributions) 12:29, 17 June 2021 (UTC)
Unfortunately, Wikimedia's 2FA setup does not allow SMS codes at this point. The application is however a standard one (not Wikimedia specific) -- you can use it with 2FA at many other services if you wish.
Anyway, 2FA confirmed,   Done (with same expiry as your sysop flag).
Best, Martin Urbanec (talk) 12:38, 17 June 2021 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec and why could i have an expiration date? --ꜰɪᴇʀᴏᴅᴇʟᴠᴇɴᴇᴛᴏ (Talk)-(Scrìvame in vec.wiki)-(Contributions) 12:56, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

Bureaucrat accessEdit

See Bureaucrat for information about this user group.
  • In principle, requests for temporary bureaucrat access are not granted.
  • A small project does not need bureaucrats. Currently whether a promotion is valid or not is decided by stewards. See here for a guideline.

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, provide a link to the discussion, with 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.
  • To request the removal of another user's permissions for inactivity, link to your local inactivity policy. If your site does not have inactivity policy, the global policy Admin activity review applies.
  • 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
