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.

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.

Vuzorg@diq.wikipediaEdit

I'm a native speaker of Zazaki and active user of Zazaki Wikipedia. I know nearly all dialects and accents of Zazaki. I want to help our administrators. Vuzorg (talk) 21:19, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

  On hold until 18 July --Alaa :)..! 10:43, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

  Granted for 6 months to expire on 2020-01-18. 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. --Alaa :)..! 12:28, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi, I requested it for permanently in Zazaki Wikipedia and the community accepted it as permanently. May you correct it please?. Best regards... Vuzorg (talk) 15:13, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

Snsqr@km.wikipediaEdit

Hi, I'd like to request sysop or possibly bureaucrat rights on Khmer Wikipedia. This wiki administrative group seems inactive quite a long time and the Khmer wiki too has been under no control (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Meta:Requests_for_help_from_a_sysop_or_bureaucrat/Archives/2018-01#Administration_of_Khmer-wiki_pages). Though, I may have limited capacity and time, I hope I can help when I'm free to keep the Khmer wiki alive. Thanks, Snsqr (talk) 06:16, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

You should request the rights locally by starting a discussion on the appropriate local forum. Ruslik (talk) 20:34, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
@Snsqr:? --Alaa :)..! 12:30, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
Because no active bureaucrat to grant.Snsqr (talk) 00:12, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
You still need to announce your intention to be a sysop on your wiki to allow people to voice their opinion. — regards, Revi 13:13, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Babooneh@fa.wiktionaryEdit

per local discussion please grant 1 year temporary adminship for the above-mentioned user,discussion was on village pump for more than two weeks Mardetanha talk 09:58, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

  Granted for 1 year to expire on 2020-07-18. 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. --Alaa :)..! 12:25, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

DARIO SEVERI@pt.wikivoyageEdit

This is the third time that I request Administrator access in this project, the last one I got 18 months. Is it possible get longer or permanent adminship? I am a permanent global sysop with over 109,000 editions [1] distributed in four hundred projects of the Wikimedia Foundation. I am also a sysop on Wikinews (pt) and Wikipedia (pt). In addition to the normal editions as editor I have more than 25,000 administrative editions as sysop in two hundreds of projects.

I also announced my application here [2]. Thank you. DARIO SEVERI (talk) 06:49, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

  Granted for 3 years to expire on 2022-07-19. — regards, Revi 13:12, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Luensu1959@lij.wikipedia.orgEdit

I am requesting adminship for the third time and hope to receive a term longer than one year. As a user I have been supporting Wikipedia Ligure since 2014. I am active also on translatewiki and wikisource (wikivivagna) with regard to the Genoese (Ligurian) language. Thanks in advance --Luensu1959 (talk) 13:05, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

  • 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.

Tiven2240@mrwikisourceEdit

I am the only administrator on that project and needed the temporary technical admin userrights to update/repair/install gadgets on this wikisource project. Please extend the same untill my temporary administrator userrights expire on 2019-09-24 20:04. more info Thanking you in advance. --Tiven2240 (talk) 11:49, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

I do not see any discussion regarding your interface admin rights. Ruslik (talk) 20:52, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: There are just a few number of people active on that project. And so it was notified on AN that the gadget Hotcat is not working by @सुबोध कुलकर्णी: at subsection of AN साहित्याचे वर्गीकरण. Since I am the only active administrator there I have been working for maintaining that project. Almost every gadget is being installed by me in my first tenure of technical administrator. Hope this helps --Tiven2240 (talk) 01:26, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
@Ruslik0:
  • No advance rights should be given to them, as their earlier requests never had community support. Their sysop rights were removed on mrwikipedia by community. Whatever gadegets they ever brought to mrwikisource were only because other active editors like user:Jayantanath, user:सुबोध कुलकर्णी, requested them to do so, and even in that, they had to be reminded several times.
  • So I don't think there is any point in even continuing their sysop rights and definitely no use of new rights. As any advance rights would result in arrogant misuse like they did on mrwikipedia.
  • Their answers to my questions on evaluation of admins page on mrwikisource tells it clearly.
  • Additionally calling community inactive is blatant insult of active editors.(As they only mentioned that, there are requests from community to work on hotcat!) There was no indication to community that, tiven is requesting technical admin rights here. Another proof of the fact that they are keeping community in dark. QueerEcofeminist "cite! even if you fight"!!! [they/them/their] 06:15, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
Thank you QueerEcofeminist for your brief explanation and it was expected and it would be great if you would do a more research and have yourself clear about the problems at the Stewards noticeboard. Just for my explanation on the above mentioned things. I didn't find any instance of me getting de-admined by @अभय नातू: you can check the same on my history at mrwp. Soon after jayanthanth asked me to install gadgets it was done by me on the same day and a few were done in period of 10 days as I was busy in my personal life and they were not on priority. The history of my talk page says it all [3]. By citing another project and evaluating on another doesn't actually makes any sense. As my contribution speaks it all. I would like you to again go through my above request and find out where I have mentioned the community as Inactive. Hope this helps. Thank you. --Tiven2240 (talk) 07:59, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
You should still start a local discussion about your interface admin rights. Ruslik (talk) 20:36, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: you have been always doing a good job. But I don't feel I can continue in a unacceptable volunteer environment. Sorry but I withdraw my nomination. Thank you. --Tiven2240 (talk) 10:00, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

  Request withdrawn --Alaa :)..! 12:28, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

NMW03@azwiktionaryEdit

I need this right for fix templates and gadgets. Can it be permanently? (I am sysop and interface-admin of azWP.) Thanks. NMW03 (talk) 00:45, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

  On hold until 23 July 2019 Ruslik (talk) 20:24, 17 July 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.

Tiven2240@mrwikisourceEdit

Persistent harassment and flyblown volunteer environment. Unacceptable defamation caused by harassers due to it everywhere. Thanking you in advance. --Tiven2240 (talk) 09:58, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

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

FR30799386@hifwikipediaEdit

Would it be possible to grant me the rollback right at hif.wikipedia ? I would like to use it primarily to revert vandalism on that wiki.  — FR 06:06, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Rollback right does not exist on hifwiki, so it cannot be assigned. — regards, Revi 13:16, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
I didn't realise that hifwiki wasn't configured to have a seperate rollback user-right. Sorry for the inconveniences caused.  — FR 17:04, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
