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. The list of archives is below.

  • Requests for bot flags are handled at SRB, and requests for global permissions are handled at SRGP.
  • 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 page edit

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]]"). This should normally be for at least one week, but no more than three weeks (if so, you'll need to restart the process).

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

Confirmation of signing confidentiality agreement edit

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.

Requests edit

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 access edit

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.

CapitainAfrika@kgwikipedia edit

I want to become Administrator access and Interface administrator access on wikipedia in kikongo (see here) CapitainAfrika (talk) 20:44, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  On hold until 1 April. Like above your request doesn't seem to say anything about the interface admin part, so I'm not sure about granting that. EPIC (talk) 20:57, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
for the interface, there are many words that do not agree with the true meaning of the words, this is the reason for this need.CapitainAfrika (talk) 21:07, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
It has now been one week since the request was opened, but still, given that your userpage says you are kg-0 makes me hesitant about granting here. I will leave this to another steward for that reason. EPIC (talk) 11:16, 1 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@EPIC, @CapitainAfrika: Interface administrator rights are not necessary at all for general improvements in interface translation. It's much better to do it on https://translatewiki.net, which has its own accounts.
Interface administrator rights are necessary for advanced interface customizations, only in cases when the translations that come from translatewiki.net cannot be appropriate for some reason, and as far as I can see, this is not the case with kg.wikipedia at the moment. Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 13:39, 16 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, well, yes, the IA request was already declined a while ago, I'm just waiting for input from another steward regarding the sysop bit. EPIC (talk) 13:51, 16 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Zulf@suwikisource edit

I ask permission to request sysop rights, take care of various things and must have sysop rights. because there are no bureaucrats and only sysop bots, it makes me difficult. thank Zulftalk 01:37, 9 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I'm a bit hesitant about granting adminship here. You made your first edit the same day you opened the discussion and your only edits on the project have been today and 10 days ago, a large amount of them in userspace. Also, the only supporter in the discussion was an IP whose only edit on the project was supporting in that discussion. I'm not really inclined to grant this for those reasons, but I'd like to hear opinions of another steward. EPIC (talk) 05:05, 9 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@EPICDue to the lack of attention local wiki, it has been neglected, I rarely go there, so I mostly go to idwiki. but I'm thinking about developing more. there are many tasks that need to be fixed. Zulftalk 05:16, 9 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I have no bad intentions, so don't hesitate Zulftalk 05:16, 9 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I'm not saying you have bad intentions, but due to what I've mentioned above this feels a bit too weak for me to grant here. I'd probably grant if someone from the local community supported, but that isn't the case here, so I'm still going to leave this to another steward for them to decide. EPIC (talk) 05:21, 9 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
OK, I appreciate it. I beg you to be given rights, the local community is very small. and also there are only admin bots.
bots are not the same as humans! Thanks Zulftalk 05:37, 9 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Agree with EPIC, the number of requests for admin and other permissions across many projects without the necessary experience [2] is worrying me. @Zulf if the local community needs help with some administrative tasks, they can use GSR or SRM and ask global sysops / stewards.

NGC 54@rowikisource edit

My rights will soon expire (6 May). --NGC 54 (talkcontribs) 13:11, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  On hold until 22 April 2024. EPIC (talk) 13:13, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

ຮັກຊີວິດ@lo.wiktionary edit

Discussion since 11 April. --Lookruk 💬 (Talk) 06:40, 17 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  On hold until 18 April. EPIC (talk) 06:49, 17 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@EPIC --Lookruk 💬 (Talk) 05:17, 19 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Hmm, I just noticed that this user registered quite recently (just 18 days ago), which makes me a bit hesitant about granting adminship. But, on the other hand there is an endorsement from the local admin on the project. I don't know how to weigh in on this, so I will discuss this with some fellow stewards first. EPIC (talk) 12:07, 19 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Okey. --Lookruk 💬 (Talk) 04:44, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

787IYO@hawiki edit

(I am happy to apply for adminship and I hope my request will be granted) 787IYO (talk) 18:11, 19 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  Granted for 6 months to expire on 2024-10-19. To prolong your (interface) adminship, please start another election a few days before your temporary access expires, and after a week post your request again to this page. Thanks. EPIC (talk) 18:17, 19 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for finding me worthy of this task. I will utilize this chance by making effective ways to ensure Wikipedia is sanitized. 787IYO (talk) 09:42, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Гусейнага@tly.wikipedia edit

Interface administrator access edit

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.

Bureaucrat access edit

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 access edit

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.
  • One-time CheckUser access is not permitted and temporary access is only used by Stewards or when the mandate of the CUs has an expiry date specified in local policies.

Nux@plwikipedia edit

After a 168-hour voting (80 votes for, 0 against and 0 abstained), based on local rules (at least 25 votes and 85% in favor), please grant Nux a indefinite access to checkuser tools, as soon as he sings Confidentiality agreement and is listed on noticeboard. Thank you in advance. Ptjackyll (talk) 12:39, 14 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  On hold pending on the candidate's signature of the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information (see instructions) and Wikimedia Foundation confirmation of the same. EPIC (talk) 12:44, 14 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Signed, awaiting confirmation on the noticeboard. Nux (talk) 14:07, 14 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Oh, also I subscribed the CU list. I confirm that wiki-at-enux.pl is my alternative e-mail (it should work with a mailing list better then my base/primary e-mail). Nux (talk) 14:10, 14 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Great! Then all there is to do is to wait for T&S to confirm and then proceed with granting. EPIC (talk) 14:16, 14 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  Done @Krd fyi regarding CU wiki, mailing list... --Johannnes89 (talk) 07:21, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Msz2001@plwikipedia edit

After a 168-hour voting (68 votes for, 0 against and 0 abstained), based on local rules (at least 25 votes and 85% in favor), please grant Msz2001 a indefinite access to checkuser tools. He already signed the Confidentiality agreement and is listed on noticeboard. Thank you in advance. Ptjackyll (talk) 19:37, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  Done, congrats and best of luck checking! Forwarding this to the listserv admins to assist with the complimentary accesses. EPIC (talk) 19:39, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Oversight access edit

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.

Miscellaneous requests edit

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

Removal of access edit

  • 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.

Bekiroflaz@trwikibooks edit

Hello @EPIC, in the Turkish Wikibooks, this sysop has been inactive for 1 year. According to the policies, the sysop rights must be taken away. 176.55.193.33 02:48, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

This is your duty, you need to be active 24/7. You are the best steward. 176.55.193.33 02:53, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
  Not done, trwikibooks does not appear to have a local inactivity policy so they will therefore go under AAR instead. EPIC (talk) 03:40, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Filter penyalahgunaan@banwiki edit

Unused abuse filter account, please remove sysop access. —MdsShakil (talk) 09:37, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  Done. EPIC (talk) 09:50, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
