< Steward requests(Redirected from Rfp)
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.

Cross-wiki requests
Meta-Wiki requests

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.

RequestsEdit

COPY THE FOLLOWING CODE to the bottom of the appropriate section below:

==== User name@xxproject ====

}}

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.

Requests for removal of access should be posted at the section below.

For permanent adminship, please provide a link to the local community approval. For temporary adminship please state for how long and for which tasks you need it, and link to a local announcement.

Bikarhêner@kuwiktionaryEdit

Hi. Could you give me permanent adminstrator, Interface administrator and bureaucrat access. --Bikarhêner (talk) 22:11, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
Hello, this request is for an administrator and Interface administrator access , like here: Steward requests/Permissions/2019-03#Bikarhêner@kuwiktionary. A new vote is not necessary. Thanks--Ghybu (talk) 23:44, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
Please make a new local announcement in village pump or similar place and link it here--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 04:21, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
Hello, that's new local announcement: https://ku.wiktionary.org/wiki/W%C3%AEk%C3%AEferheng:D%C3%AEwan#Maf%C3%AAn_R%C3%AAvebiriya_Da%C3%AEm%C3%AE_ji_bo_Bikarh%C3%AAner:%22Bikarh%C3%AAner%22 --Bikarhêner (talk) 20:45, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

Please give me these rights. --Bikarhêner (talk) 11:41, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

Icem4k@nywikipediaEdit

Hi i hope this finds you well. Could you give me permanent administrator, Interface administrator and bureaucrat access. My community is small you check the discussion page here and also the community village announcement here. Most of the of actions are done by users that are not part of the community set up or a Global sysop you can check the log here. Thank best regards--Isaac Kanguya✌ (talk) 20:47, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

@Icem4k: we can only grant temporary admin/interface admin permissions at this point of time as your community is small. Also could you please let us know why do you need interface admin permissions?. --Shanmugamp7 (talk) 04:14, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
@Shanmugamp7: I think it fine if you will not give me permanent admin-ship then don't give me interface admin just grant me the regular admin-ship thank you. I wanted Interface administrator in order to edit Jave Script pages. --Isaac Kanguya✌ (talk) 09:56, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

Zylbath@got.wikipediaEdit

Hello, since the main admin from the Gothic Wikipedia is probably taking some time off, he asked me to jump in to take care of the Wikipedia and I am planning on becoming more active since the Gothic scene is in a change and I am taking a bigger role in it. I have been admin there already several times. If you would consider a permanent adminship, that'd be great, but a temporary one would of course be fine, so that I can apply for it again. If you have any questions before giving it a final decision feel free to ask me. Thank you a lot. Zylbath (talk) 18:56, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

  On hold until 15 September 2019 Ruslik (talk) 05:24, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Benipal hardarshan@pa.wikisourceEdit

I was previously "Admin" and "Interface-Admin" On Punjabi Wikisource. I imported some new gadgets and also designed a new home page for paws and done other works those I mentioned in my previous requests for rights. This time I am requesting for permanent rights "Admin" as well as "Interface-Admin" Community approved for those. --*•.¸♡ ℍ𝕒𝕣𝕕𝕒𝕣𝕤𝕙𝕒𝕟 𝔹𝕖𝕟𝕚𝕡𝕒𝕝 ♡¸.•*𝕋𝕒𝕝𝕜 17:13, 13 September 2019 (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.

For permanent interface adminship, please provide a link to the local community approval. For temporary interface adminship please state for how long and for which tasks you need it, and link to a local announcement.

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.

Svlioras@el.wiktionaryEdit

Hi! I would like to request that you give bureaucrat access to User:Svlioras, because our only bureaucrat has been missing since March and we need a new bureaucrat. Thank you in advance! Τυχαίος Χρήστης (talk) 16:29, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

I do not think that the community is large enough to have local bureaucrats. Ruslik (talk) 20:18, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
We need a bureaucrat so that he can grant bot status and adminships. At the moment there is not a lot of traffic, but we usually have a lot of activity. When can we have a bureaucrat? Τυχαίος Χρήστης (talk) 18:46, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
Bot and admin status can be granted by stewards. You do not need bureaucrats for that. Ruslik (talk) 05:26, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for your response. Just one thing though. When can a community have a bureaucrat? --Τυχαίος Χρήστης (talk) 09:04, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

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.

Diagramma Della Verita@mswikiEdit

All, request to remove adminship for both users above. Reason due to inactive for more than 1 year. Emails sent also got no reply. Zamwan (talk) 06:58, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

If I am reading the policy right, you probably need to go through a voting for this User since the user did do some actions on Sept 5th? --Jyothis (talk) 11:36, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

Noted with thanks. I will create voting page for this purpose. Zamwan (talk) 08:58, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Iliev@bg.wikipediaEdit

Dear Colleagues,

Please remove my sysop privileges on the Bulgarian Wikipedia. There's a lot of wikistress accumulated around the closing of the Bulgarian Wikinews, and some users on that project have been suggesting that I was acting in bad faith. Accordingly, I feel that I need to step back from the projects for at least some time. This should help me better reflect on the service that I've strived to provide to the Bulgarian wikicommunity for some years, and I've also already asked the community to possibly re-elect me as a sysop on bgwiki. The latter also means there's no need to wait, not to mention that in case of on-wiki emergencies I could still use my sysop bot, PSS 9 (I'll ask separately for its and JSS 9 privileges to also be revoked if the community decides to not entrust me with such responsibilities again). And just to make sure no miscommunication happens: I'm asking to have revoked only for my personal sysop privileges on the Bulgarian Wikipedia; please do keep these on the other projects (for now), as it would be impractical to ask the community to vote there too.

Thank you very much,
— Luchesar • T/C 11:01, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

  On hold for 1 day, standard for resignation of advanced permissions. — regards, Revi 16:29, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
  Done, with thanks for the past work.--Wim b 11:25, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
