Steward requests/Permissions

(Redirected from Rfp)
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. 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 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.

Jphwra@ukwikivoyageEdit

--Jphwra (talk) 21:33, 7 February 2023 (UTC)

  Not done Discussions must be open for seven days before requesting. Feel free to re-request after meeting the requirements. -- Amanda (she/her) 04:20, 8 February 2023 (UTC)

Gwikor_Frank@kwwikiEdit

  Not done No request linked, plus all votes must be active for at least 7 days before requesting. -- Amanda (she/her) 04:18, 8 February 2023 (UTC)

KWiki@bs.wikiquoteEdit

The admin has not been active for more than four years. I don't have time to work daily on BS Wikiquote (I am an admin on BS Wikipedia), but the admin rights would be handy for reverting and deleting vandalisms and other non-useful changes. The voting has been held. -- KWiki (talk) 08:18, 27 January 2023 (UTC)

  Granted for 3 months to expire on 2023-05-08. 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. -- Amanda (she/her) 04:24, 8 February 2023 (UTC)

Suyash.dwivedi@hif.wikiEdit

Hi, I am requesting admin access to hif Wiktionary as this wiki has no admin and there are many pages that are many outdated and non-relevant name pages that need to be fixed also there are many missing templates that need to be imported. So I request to grant me admin rights to perform needful actions, Thanks Suyash Dwivedi (talk) 16:21, 8 February 2023 (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.

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 .

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.

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

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.

ruslik0@allEdit

Please, remove both local and global steward access. Ruslik (talk) 11:34, 7 February 2023 (UTC)
@Ruslik0:, it's your freedom to leave. But I hope you know that many users still support you(please see your confirmation) and don't deny what you've done. What you have been doing for over 10 years is not meaningless. In all that time, there must have been things that sometimes seemed inappropriate to other users. Or maybe it was a mistake you weren't aware of. Then you can explain it! And I believe it is possible even now. --Sotiale (talk) 12:25, 7 February 2023 (UTC)
This user's checkuser flag in login wiki should also be removed once the user resigned.--GZWDer (talk) 21:36, 7 February 2023 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: While the 24 hours have already passed, are you sure you still want to proceed with this request? Sincerely, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:42, 8 February 2023 (UTC)
@Ruslik0 during my checks on de-wp I saw many trolls and vandals who tried to edit from proxies that were already hard blocked by you. You prevendet a lot of vandalism in de-wp (and probably other wikis) Der-Wir-Ing ("DWI") talk 18:49, 8 February 2023 (UTC)
@Ruslik0 Please don't leave we need you -- Suyash Dwivedi (talk) 19:44, 8 February 2023 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: We all need you. Please see your confirmation page and this page. Most users want you here as steward. AlPaD (talk) 20:34, 8 February 2023 (UTC)
Sadly, done. Thank you for your work after all these many years of service. All the best, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 00:19, 9 February 2023 (UTC)
