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

Contents

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.

Gilles2014@ht.wikipediaEdit

Hello, I am an administrator until 26 March 2019. I want to continue to be an administrator to avoid vandalism. In addition, we also want to refresh the homepage (a 10 year old page) and portals in the haitian wikipedia. Please, can I have the permission?--Gilles2014 (talk) 23:36, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

Tn4196@vec.wiktionaryEdit

Hi, I was active in this project since it was in Incubator in September 2011, then as the wiki was opened in June 2013 I was elected by the local community to be an admin with a temporary status, our later request to get the definitive status was rejected as the wiki was thought to be too small as for its contributors. In the last months some new contributors arrived and we have an increase of contribution and, obviously, also an increase of work for sysop. So now I request permanent adminship, as for the results of the election held in our Wiki. --Tn4196 (talk) 14:18, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Tn4196 is already a temporary sysop (until december 2019). Last month I was elected administrator and I obtained a permanent flag. So we (vec.wikt comunity, with the local vote) decided to request to transform this temporary adminship in a permanent one.--GatoSelvadego (talk) 20:28, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
Permanent adminship usually start with at least 5 votes. Ruslik (talk) 20:41, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
The user has been a temp admin there for six years now, and there are other permanent admins on the project. I think it is worth remembering why we assign temporary rights: to avoid small-wiki admins being able to take over their project. After such an extended period of time, surely the risk of that is low and permanent permissions can be assigned? – Ajraddatz (talk) 21:21, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
Actually there is only one permanent admin. Ruslik (talk) 20:31, 28 February 2019 (UTC)
We know that a new admin needs 5 votes for a permanent adminship, but Tn4196 is already a sysop. Anyway, what sould we do? Reopen the voting until the fifth comes?--GatoSelvadego (talk) 23:07, 28 February 2019 (UTC)
I think that you should re-open. Ruslik (talk) 20:14, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

@Tn4196 and GatoSelvadego:? --Alaa :)..! 17:06, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

I've re-opened the vote and we are waiting for the fifth... A few more days should be enough, I think.--GatoSelvadego (talk) 22:37, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

  On hold until 27 March --Alaa :)..! 15:13, 23 March 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.

Joachim Mos@nds.wiktionaryEdit

(deine Erläuterungen) Joachim Mos (talk) 07:55, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

@Joachim Mos:, do you have 2FA enabled? einsbor talk 09:51, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
No, must I do so? --Joachim Mos (talk) 08:41, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Yes, it's now required. Leaderboard (talk) 10:03, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
I don't know how. My English is not good enough, to understand without a dictionary, how to do. And generelly: Since years I'm the only one, who works continue for nds.wiktionary, get no help from Wikipedia, if their is a problem, problems, I would not have, if not often someone, I do not know who, makes changes, and nobody looks, that it will not make problems, they make changes and I can make the rest, do not know, what was changed, and so I need often hours, to find, what's going wrong. At time, I cannot use the Edit-Help, someone has change something and I do not know, what. And so I have many work, that has nothing to do with to make a Dictionary, many times, I do look, what's going wrong. And then, I can as an Admin not longer open for example https://nds.wiktionary.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Edit.js to do something, that it will run again in future, after Mr. Unknown had made a change, and if I will do it, there is a first problem, suddenly I must become a special Admin, a interface administrator, who is allowed to make changes in MediaWiki-Files, and that is not enough, a little second problem, now you must install something on your computer or so, a Password is not enough, and the page, where is written how to do, is a mix of German and English, before I can install, I have to do a hour or more, to translate. I have work years on nds.wiktionary.org, but now it is enough. You can close the nds.wiktionary, in future there is nobody, who will do anything continouisly, no Admin, no one who makes templates, and no one, who will look, that every thing is okay, nobody, who will look, that the shit, what someone makes, so that their are errors and bugs, will be become okay. And clear, a Interface administrator access I do not need in future, shall the one, who has made the problems for example with the https://nds.wiktionary.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Edit.js do something, that the problem will be no longer be. I will do in future other things, things, that make sence and make fun. nds.wiktionary maks both no longer. For me is that, what is going on on nds.wiktionary, only a form of sabotage and that's not all, I have look many hours on Wikimedia and so on for someone, who helps me, to correct errors, nobody will do so, no, but make errors is no problems. Now for me it's more than enough, call the troubleshooter, they have made the problems, let them correct it. I not longer will do so, and so I also not need to be a shit interface administrator. --Joachim Mos (talk) 11:33, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
I know you might be in a hurry, but whoa, watch your mouth. --Super Wang hates PC You hate, too? 12:18, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
@Joachim Mos: calm down, please. 2FA is mandatory to get the permission you're asking. Go to your preferences site (click here), now on first page you got button "Enable two factor autentication" (or Die Zwei-Faktor-Authentifizierung aktivieren). Then install Google authenticator or other app on your mobile. It's simple and easy to use. I asked for it not because I want you to get mad, I asked because I cannot grant the permission wihtout 2FA enabled. einsbor talk 15:03, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Die Anleitung von Einsbor stimmt, allerdings musst du dafür die Einstellungen auf ndswiktionary besuchen, nicht auf Meta. :-) --Vogone (talk) 12:47, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

Zdenekk2@skwiktionaryEdit

Thanks.

Please, start a local discussion first. Ruslik (talk) 17:50, 22 March 2019 (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, 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.

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
