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.

  • 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.

Rpel@dz.wikipediaEdit

I endorse RPel as an admin for Dzongkha Wikipedia. I have known RPel, a native Dzongkha speaking IT graduate, who has been working in the field of Dzongkha language computing and computer security, for over 10 years. CFynn (talk) 07:55, 23 October 2021 (UTC)

Please, supply a link to a local discussion. Ruslik (talk) 20:48, 24 October 2021 (UTC)

Request filed 2021-10-23, so   On hold until 2021-10-30. — regards, Revi 21:32, 25 October 2021 (UTC)
It would be unusual to grant sysop access to a new account with few edits. Ruslik (talk) 20:25, 31 October 2021 (UTC)
Hi, There are only a handful of us trying to get the Dzongkha Wikipedia going. To get mor people interested and participating, we need to make it more attractive - by fixing the CSS, making a few simple Templates and then putting up some more useful articles. But it seems we are very limited in what can be done on our own without the necessary rights - unless there is someone with those rights we can contact who can do it for us. CFynn (talk) 09:14, 24 November 2021 (UTC)
@CFynn: Fixing CSS actually requires the Interface administrator rights. Ruslik (talk) 20:20, 29 November 2021 (UTC) RPel
@Ruslik: We also would like to import a few basic templates. If either RPel or I cannot get the neccessary right to do these things. then is there someone with those rights who could help us with this?. While I appreciate and understand the need for security, there seem to be a lot of hurdles in the way of getting an underused Wikipedia for a language like Dzongkha with a very small userbase up and running. CFynn (talk) 10:37, 30 November 2021 (UTC)
I think that you can get admin rights. I also want to note that creating templates does not require admin rights. Ruslik (talk) 19:06, 2 December 2021 (UTC)

Nehirowisiw@atj.wikipediaEdit

  On hold until 19 December 2021 Ruslik (talk) 20:27, 19 November 2021 (UTC)

ParittoAme@zh.wikibooksEdit

Admin rights for one month (user has his/her name changed). Sorry for postponing the poll for such a long time.--Sayonzei (talk) 08:35, 22 November 2021 (UTC)

MONUMENTA@es.wikiversidadEdit

I wish I was still an administrator at es.wikiversidad.--MONUMENTA (talk) 15:14, 28 November 2021 (UTC)

  On hold until 1 December 2021 Ruslik (talk) 20:22, 28 November 2021 (UTC)
  Not done NO consensus. Ruslik (talk) 19:03, 2 December 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.

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

M.ottenbruch@de.wikipediaEdit

I would like to kindly request importer rights for the german wikipedia. Allthough there are currently 14 users with importer rights in de-wp, only five of them have done imports within the last six months, only three of them within the last six weeks. Currently there are about 25 requests that require importer rights on our page for import requests. I would like to assist the few active importers in fulfilling those requests. TIA M.ottenbruch (talk) 16:00, 29 November 2021 (UTC)

  On hold until 2021-12-05 I do not see a dewiki policy setting how long discussion for importer promotion, so setting this on hold for a week since request creation, to allow interested people some time to look at the request. If I missed such a policy, let me know. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 16:11, 29 November 2021 (UTC)

Chewbacca2205@de.wikipediaEdit

I'd like to request importer rights for the german wikipedia, too. We have few active importers at the moment, but many import orders to process. Having imported for a few years with regular admin rights, I'd like to get importer rights, to be able to finish more requests. Greetings Chewbacca2205 (talk) 08:10, 1 December 2021 (UTC)

The discussion lasted only one day? Ruslik (talk) 21:04, 1 December 2021 (UTC)
Yes, we don't have any rules there about how long such motions have to be discussed because they happen so infrequently. Some of those most affected by the proposal, other importers, have agreed to it. --Chewbacca2205 (talk) 07:59, 3 December 2021 (UTC)

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.

Iniquity@ru.wikibooksEdit

Hi! Remove my AI permission on Russian Wikibooks, plz. Inactive in the project. Iniquity (talk) 18:29, 2 December 2021 (UTC)
