Steward requests/Permissions

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. 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.

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.

Zulf@suwiki

hello, after I waited seven days for the administrator's rights request on Suwiki but no one visited it. I have previously made a previous request here but it was not granted for the reason that it is unfortunately too old in our standards at this point . the same as today's requests, as before, they are neglected and untouched, I will work there, such as editing mediawiki or importing and so on, which prompted me to ask for administrator rights because, for example, I want to move here to here but restricted. I hope my request can be understood and granted. Thanks 🍃Zulf🍃talk 01:02, 13 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

The local bureaucrat has edited the wiki since I last contacted them, therefore I will email them again and come back here in a week if there has been no response by then. EPIC (talk) 01:05, 13 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I have also contacted the bureaucrat kumincir but did not respond when he was active [1]
🍃Zulf🍃talk 01:10, 13 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
If a project has local bureaucrats, we usually defer to them for granting permissions. If local crats are inactive and/or don't react to talk page messages and mails for a couple of weeks, stewards can grant permissions instead (e.g. recently [2]). Given that you've done <250 suwiki edits before requesting adminship I'm not convinced you've got the necessary experience on that project.
Therefore I would personally ask you to wait and get a couple of months more experience on suwiki, before I would consider granting admin permissions on a project with a bureaucrat. Of course Kumincir might choose to handle this differently if they do react to your message, but I tend to decline this from a steward's perspective. Johannnes89 (talk) 18:18, 16 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Johannnes89 Thank you for the explanation and opinion. but I defended it by saying that I have enough experience at IDwiki, because Suwiki is part of Wikimedia Indonesia so I think I am qualified enough to manage Suwiki. because Sundanese is complicated. 🍃Zulf🍃talk 00:03, 17 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
It has been more than five days, i.e almost a week, there has not been any response or action from Kumincir (the local bureaucrat), and I doubt that there will be, considering that they have still not responded to my initial email regarding the last adminship request after one month. Therefore, given the concerns raised by Johannes along with concerns regarding the past numerous failed rights requests which were also raised by other stewards privately, I would like to hear the opinion of one of the active local sysops before possibly processing this from the stewards' side, so pinging @Ariandi Lie and RXerself:. EPIC (talk) 14:43, 18 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for pinging me. I'm not sure about this user's reasons for gaining administrator status on suwiki. Does this user only want to have administrator tools or how, only he himself knows. In fact, you don't have to be an administrator to contribute.
Regarding on this user's experience. Yes, this user is very experienced as a reviewer, rollbacker, CVU (id:SPV) member in idwiki.
Actually, there is one advantage that this user has that not all administrators may have, unfortunately this is not mentioned as a strong reason for obtaining this administrator status.
This user said "Sundanese is complicated". I see this user editing in suwiki is like a translation where a lot of inappropriate language is used. But It's okay. this can be learned. Weak oppose for his reason. Ariandi Lie Talk with me 16:15, 18 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  Not done per internal discussions with the stewards, weak oppose by suwiki admin Ariandi Lie and my reasoning above. As described above local bureaucrats may of course decide to handle this differently, but stewards cannot grant the permissions at this point. --Johannnes89 (talk) 08:30, 20 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I request temporary administrator access on Assamese wikisource for a period of 6 months. Pranamikaadhikary (talk) 13:52, 13 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  On hold until 20 July 2024. EPIC (talk) 13:54, 13 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
  Granted for 1 year to expire on 2025-07-20. 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.
I see this as enough votes from users involved in the project to grant for one year, so I am doing that here, unless you explicitly wanted a six month tenure? EPIC (talk) 16:11, 20 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thankyou. Pranamikaadhikary (talk) 15:48, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I have been working as admin since long. I may be granted adminship permanently. Sraiki (talk) 03:00, 20 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  Granted for 1 year to expire on 2025-07-20. 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.
Note that in accordance with MVR, permanent adminship is not granted on wikis without sufficiently large communities - therefore, also given past tenures, granted temporarily for one year again. EPIC (talk) 03:35, 20 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

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.

  On hold until 20 July 2024. I moved this request to SRP; Meta:Requests for adminship is meant for requesting local rights at Meta. EPIC (talk) 11:26, 13 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Ariandi Lie@suwiki

edit

I actually applied for this right at the same time as the previous request for administrator status. But at that time I had not asked for this right. My application for status as temporary administrator was received on July 5 yesterday (Evidence). Currently, I want to ask for permission to obtain Interface Administrsator rights temporarily until 5 October 2024. I will include several gadgets on suwiki such as QuickEdit and Twinkle to make it easier for users on Suwiki. Also includes AdvancedSiteNotice and XTools. Even as a suwiki administrator, I can't edit MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition just to include the definition. For now that's all that will be included. Currently, Suwiki does not have an IA. Thank You. Ariandi Lie Talk with me 18:25, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  Done with the same expiry as admin rights. Given that the local bureaucrat has still not responded to neither of my queries I'm going to grant this as it has already delayed these requests quite a bit. EPIC (talk) 18:35, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

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.

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.
