Steward requests/Permissions

(Redirected from SRP)
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.

Nehaoua@arwiktionaryEdit

Please give her sysop flag on ar.wiktionary for 1 year. --Ajwaan (talk) 18:23, 24 November 2022 (UTC)

Could you please highlight where the user accepted the nomination? -- Amanda (she/her) 23:12, 25 November 2022 (UTC)
Hey, here's the page here. --Ajwaan (talk) 12:00, 26 November 2022 (UTC)
No, i'm looking for the spot where Nehaoua agreed to take on the role of administrator. Like where has Nehaoua shown they want to be an administrator. -- Amanda (she/her) 12:07, 26 November 2022 (UTC)
Once you click on the link above, you get to the community vote.--Ajwaan (talk) 12:52, 26 November 2022 (UTC)
@Nehaoua: Could you confirm here that you would like to become an administrator? AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 18:22, 26 November 2022 (UTC)
@AntiCompositeNumber yes, I confrim to become an administrator in arwiktionary Nehaoua (talk) 20:40, 26 November 2022 (UTC)

Aishik Rehman@bnwiktionaryEdit

This is my third request. If possible, I would ask to think about making it permanent. -- Aishik Rehman (talk) 21:49, 26 November 2022 (UTC)

  On hold until 11 December 2022 Ruslik (talk) 20:41, 29 November 2022 (UTC)

Vipz@sh.wikipediaEdit

I am requesting sysop rights for User:Vipz (sh:Korisnik:Vipz). The voting started on 29 October 2022 and ended on 28 November 2022, with 10 users in favour, none opposed and one neutral. Our single active bureaucrat, User:OC Ripper (sh:Korisnik:OC Ripper) was last active on sh.wiki on 26 October 2022, so we're hoping that a steward can grant sysop tools to User:Vipz. Thanks in advance and, if there are any questions, please let me know. Best wishes, --Igor Windsor (talk) 19:31, 30 November 2022 (UTC)

@Igor Windsor: Hello! I write a message on OC Ripper's talk page. Thanks! AlPaD (talk) 08:00, 3 December 2022 (UTC)
@AlPaD: Excellent, we did the same by pinging him on the pages with votes etc., but the guy has simply decided to take some rest from wikipedia or to go on a travel around the world. :) How long will stewards now wait for OC Ripper to (not) respond before granting sysop rights to Vipz, as per above, and interface admin rights to Aca, as per below? Cheers, --Igor Windsor (talk) 08:56, 3 December 2022 (UTC)
@Igor Windsor: I have talked to the stewards on IRC, and apparently it is technically not possible as long as there are users with bureaucrat rights on the wiki. They are currently discussing internally whether we can find a solution, as I have informed of the importance of getting these roles assigned before you become a bureaucrat on the 30th. I will let you know as soon as I hear more. / Deni (talk) 09:25, 3 December 2022 (UTC)
@Deni: Oh, OK, cheers. The voting for my bureaucrat rights ends on 20th Dec, by the way, the 30th was a miscalculation. --Igor Windsor (talk) 09:27, 3 December 2022 (UTC)
Even better. / Deni (talk) 09:44, 3 December 2022 (UTC)

PirjanovNurlan@kaawikipediaEdit

Hello, I am here to request an extension in my Adminship which will expire on 6th December. I want to ask you to solve this matter before the deadline, thank you in advance. PirjanovNurlan (talk) 18:10, 3 December 2022 (UTC)

Inosham@kaawikipediaEdit

Hi there! I have recently submitted my nomination to the Karakalpak Wikipedia. The goal is to fill Kaawiki with high-quality articles and show my leadership as well as management skills in the development of Karakalpak-speaking community, as it seems in Central Asian and European language wikipedias. Inosham () 18:35, 3 December 2022 (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.

TumbukaArch@st.wiktionaryEdit

Hello, discussion took place 7 days ago. I am the only active native speaker working there. There will be no vote there, as literally I am the only person active adding and editing entries there. I would like to request temporary Interface and Regular adminship. 2FA is always activated as I have similar (Interface) rights on other projects. Thank you. Tumbuka Arch (talk) 20:30, 30 November 2022 (UTC)

Aca@sh.wikipediaEdit

Hi there,

Aca has been waiting months for Interface Admin privileges, since the three bureaucrats on sh.wiki are inactive. An election is taking place for a new bureaucrat (User:Igor Windsor, election on sh.wiki) who has great support, but will not be concluded until 30th of December. As many changed need to be made after we got the language converter merged (on Gerrit), this is too long to wait and would be a considerable blocker.

I therefore create my request here, and hope that a steward can help us by processing this ASAP.

Thank you in advance. Deni (talk) 23:03, 2 December 2022 (UTC)

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 .

Боки@sr.wikipedia.orgEdit

Serbian community has voted me for new checkuser as per link above. There were more than 25 votes (41 in total to be exact) Боки 00:02, 27 November 2022 (UTC)

  On hold pending on the candidate's signature of the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information (see instructions) and Wikimedia Foundation confirmation of the same -- Amanda (she/her) 00:48, 27 November 2022 (UTC)
Hi @AmandaNP
I have not received anything as of yet so I was just wondering if you have an update on this matter.
I did receive an email few days ago where they have asked me to confirm my email address and that was all I have received from @Krd
Please, advise
Боки 22:48, 1 December 2022 (UTC)
Stewards are waiting for your signature to appear on Access to nonpublic personal data policy/Noticeboard. This has to be done by WMF office and usually takes an undefined while. --Krd 07:30, 2 December 2022 (UTC)
You have placed your signature as described in Access to nonpublic personal data policy, don't you? --Krd 07:32, 2 December 2022 (UTC)
@Krd I did not receive any document whatsoever. The only information I have received was your email earlier last week. Боки 22:49, 2 December 2022 (UTC)
@Боки: Please follow these instructions. After that, we will wait for your name to show on the board noted above by Krd. -- Amanda (she/her) 23:46, 2 December 2022 (UTC)
@AmandaNP I just did sign both of the agreements. Боки 23:57, 2 December 2022 (UTC)

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

Mohanad Kh@arwikibooksEdit

Temporary Importer, Needed for importing migrated wikibooks content from another sister project Mohanad Kh Talk 21:37, 11 November 2022 (UTC)

  Comment The Arabic Wikipedia community (which includes all active members of the Arabic Sister Projects at the time) agreed (on 17 January 2019) that any discussion/nomination/policy involving the Arabic Sister Projects should be brought up on this page, in order to notify the community, as there are no active communities on these projects. The policy states "Any discussion/nominations in sister projects must be announced in Sister project village pump, and any discussion that has not been announced on it, it's summary is unofficial". Since the announcement of this policy until now, all of discussion/nomination/policy it is announced in this village (Please see Archives). But I can't found any link of above nomination on previous mentioned village. (I'm commenting as a sysop in Arabic Wikibooks). Best --Alaa :)..! 10:42, 12 November 2022 (UTC)

Thx @Alaa for comment, I really respect that, but correct me if I'm wrong, this consensus will be mandatory, if it's approved and documented in these projects as mini-policy or guideline (or even as discussion consensus), which didn't happen actually, except that, it has no any consideration (Just an objective point-of-view ) --Mohanad Kh Talk 16:00, 12 November 2022 (UTC)
Please, notify the community as suggested above and allow the discussion to run for a week. Ruslik (talk) 20:16, 13 November 2022 (UTC)
@Ruslik0 I don't really understand, I already did that (I mean ar.wikibooks community), so that's actually weird and confusing. Let's suppose that the same users community have the same discussion on en.wikipedia, and they have agreed on the same consensus, but you have to notify them on some en.wikipedia page, should I do it there also? Is that a common thing? And all that happens without any policy or guideline terms on those projects?!Note To be honest with you, I don't really care about request as much as I care about answer to this question, cause it will change my view literally and make me thinking twice about developing sister projects --Mohanad Kh Talk 21:34, 13 November 2022 (UTC)
Note: I mean those users community agreed on some wikimedia space and that's enough, they don't need to document this consensus on every related project to be official. --Mohanad Kh Talk 22:10, 13 November 2022 (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.

1997kB@wikidatawikiEdit

1997kB has not made the required five admin actions within the last six months (see stats). Please remove admin and checkuser per policy. Ameisenigel (talk) 10:31, 1 December 2022 (UTC)

You are only considering the logged action. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 10:54, 1 December 2022 (UTC)
