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.

कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया@hi.wikiquoteEdit

Hello

Sir,

I request the administrator after Focusing on the present time,I would like to connect the new veins to make the Wikiquote much better as well as activate smoothly. Recently, I came to know that there is currently no active any sysop on this project.I have been nominating this to improve the basic structure for a variety of general maintenance work on hi wikiquote. -- कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया (talk) 15:07, 2 July 2021 (UTC)

  On hold until July 9th. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 00:26, 5 July 2021 (UTC)
There is still a comment from an IP that has not been responded to. MVR requires any opposition to be fully discussed out. I think at least a response is in order. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 19:02, 13 July 2021 (UTC)
I probably can't please everyone sir maybe that's why this ip is dissatisfied with me. I think this discussion should be decided now. Whatever the decision of the jury amongst themselves, I will accept it unanimously.-- कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया (talk) 05:37, 24 July 2021 (UTC)
{Non steward comment) Off topic, but please don't call AmandaNP as "sir". I think you know the reason why. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 07:33, 24 July 2021 (UTC)
ji, apologize of this. -- कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया (talk) 09:04, 24 July 2021 (UTC)

Mirzali@diqwiktionaryEdit

My administrator rights will soon expire. I want to continue to contribute to this project as an admin, so I want to have admin and interface admin rights. I have a lot of templates and modules to import, gadgets to improve and a lot of admin tasks are still pending. I would be really grateful if the admin rights were granted permanently. Many Thanks! -- Mirzali (talk) 17:36, 12 July 2021 (UTC)

Brazal.dang@bclwiktionaryEdit

Hello! My administrator rights will expire soon. There are still a very few active administrator in the project. I would like to extend my help as an administrator for another cycle. Imelda (Talk) 14:48, 14 July 2021 (UTC)

  On hold until 22 July. stanglavine msg 00:03, 17 July 2021 (UTC)

Several users@smnwikiEdit

A vote was started on June 22nd about who should be the administrators on the Inari Sámi Wikipedia (smnwiki), which resulted in the following six users being elected:

--Muotâ (talk) 18:04, 17 July 2021 (UTC)

How would someone oppose in the election if they wanted to? It seems like this is only meant to record support votes. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 18:38, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
They can leave a message in the discussion. And it's not mandatory to vote for all candidates. If someone doesn't support certain candidates, they simply don't give their vote to them. --Muotâ (talk) 19:23, 18 July 2021 (UTC)

HuwacBasaw1234@trv.wikipediaEdit

7elteven@nawikiEdit

After ending of my adminship, the only active admin (and in general a participant) was SHB2000. I didn't have any time because of exams. As soon as the time came, I decided to become an admin again and help SHB2000 to revive the Nauruan Wikipedia. --7elteven (talk) 14:43, 21 July 2021 (UTC)

@7elteven: Welcome back SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 22:44, 21 July 2021 (UTC)
  Oppose The requestor has spam-only edits on both Incubator and Lithuanian Wikipedia, and hence blocked on both sites. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 03:19, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
No, this user was blocked on the Incubator because they were suspected to contributing in languages they don't know, because it seemed like they were adding Russian words, but the language has a little bit of russian words in it. Also, votes don't go here, they're meant to go on the discussion page. Not sure about ltwiki though. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 03:25, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
@SHB2000: Then how do you explain Steward_requests/Checkuser/2020-12#Mikhaliov_~_ltwiki@lt.wikipedia, especially
  •   Confirmed Group 1: Mikhaliov ~ ltwiki, 7elteven

--Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 03:27, 22 July 2021 (UTC)

Thanks. Makes sense for ltwiki, but not the incubator. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 03:30, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
@Liuxinyu970226: Hello. That was my past mistakes that I made more that a year ago on ltwikipedia. I don't make it anymore. Btw, this account was not my sock on Wikipedia, just the new account so I don't really know why admins blocked this account. I didn't do any contributions there so I can't be the sock puppet. - 7elteven (talk) 04:43, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
Also Liuxinyu, have some grace. 7 eleven is still in school, and mistakes are expected. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 04:48, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
He never used and thus also never abused the other account on nawiki. Also it seems like he never abused his sysop permissions in nawiki in the past. So could you ellaborate why this is such a big problem? --Zabe (talk) 09:46, 24 July 2021 (UTC)
Agree. Additionally, 7elteven was a sysop for three months (and as you said, never abused them), and is one of our only few editors that know some Nauruan here. Also, 7elteven is still in school, so I expect mistakes. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 11:53, 24 July 2021 (UTC)

abuluntu@nowikibooksEdit

I’d like to continue my adminship. The discussion has not attracted any attention, but has been open for 7 days. I have also notified other contributors at the “busiest” forum. -- Abuluntu (👨🏼‍💻💬) 15:49, 21 July 2021 (UTC)

  On hold until 27 July 2021 Ruslik (talk) 20:04, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

Turkmen@az.wiktionaryEdit

Thank you.--Turkmen talk 22:41, 22 July 2021 (UTC)

  Granted for 1 year to expire on 2022-07-23. Ruslik (talk) 20:02, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

updateshark312@szy.wikipediaEdit

-- Update.shark (talk) 08:17, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

Comment - the vote looks a bit suspicious too me. There was a support from Special:CentralAuth/Updateshark312 in their first and only global edit so far, that account was registered earlier today. Note the similarity in username between that supporter and the user requesting adminship. There was also w:szy:Special:Diff/119992 from Mecytan in their first edit on the wiki, and users `Mkpn` and `Lamtou` both supported in their third edits on the wiki, and while those accounts are not brand new, they are still fairly inactive. Just wanted to bring this up - I don't know the language so I can't really investigate further. --DannyS712 (talk) 10:43, 23 July 2021 (UTC)
@DannyS712: looks like sleepers to me, but regardless, an admin can't be socking and IMO, definitely Updateshark312 is a sock per the duck test. Not a candidate for admin and looks like hat collecting to me... SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 07:39, 24 July 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.

ShiminUfesoj@bcl.wikipediaEdit

(your remarks)   ShiminUfesoj 🌏 (🦜)  12:28, 22 July 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.

Leaderboard@enwikibooksEdit

As of writing, 25/27 users supported. I've signed the NDA a long while back. Leaderboard (talk) 05:03, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

  On hold Not enough support. 24 votes, and policy requires at least 25-30. stanglavine msg 21:40, 23 July 2021 (UTC)
@Stanglavine: There are 27 (25 support + 2 oppose) votes as of writing, not sure where you are getting 24. (update: someone moved theirs to oppose, so you're now right, apologies for the premature request) Leaderboard (talk) 04:37, 24 July 2021 (UTC)
Leaderboard, you should have waited after the voting has ended, IMHO, Best. —Nnadigoodluck 10:48, 24 July 2021 (UTC)

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.

Azerifactory@azwikiEdit

Please remove sysop right as a local discussion. Thanks in advance. eldarado 04:35, 21 July 2021 (UTC)

@Eldarado: I moved your discussion below since that is not where your request goes!!! That section is for getting rights, and this section is for removal of rights. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 00:03, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
@SHB2000: oh, Thanks this is my wrong. --eldarado 09:51, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
Sorry for my harsh tone as well. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 09:52, 22 July 2021 (UTC)

Edu!@ptwikinewsEdit

Remove permission sysop and interface administrator. Thanks. Edu! (talk) 00:22, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

on hold for 24h per standard practice. einsbor talk 07:27, 23 July 2021 (UTC)
  Comment appears that the user has withdrawn (see edit history) - stewards may want to set the appropriate flag. Leaderboard (talk) 11:46, 23 July 2021 (UTC)
marking as withdrawn as the user removed this request with the comment 'canceled'. I actually think we could have just left it removed. --Zabe (talk) 20:51, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

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

扎姆@zh-classical.wikipediaEdit

Please grant him reviewer right. This user is good at Classical Chinese and familiar with the policies on Classical Chinese Wikipedia. The vote has been held for a month, and there are four supports and no objections. --WAN233 (talk) 04:12, 22 July 2021 (UTC)

Can't all admins just give the reviewer right? Or does this wiki not allow that? SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 04:15, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
Editor could be grant by admin but reviewer must be grant by bureaucrat in lzh wiki.--WAN233 (talk) 04:19, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
that makes sense. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 04:22, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
