Requests and proposals Steward requests (Permissions) latest archive
This page enables stewards to handle permissions requests, including the giving and taking of administrator, bureaucrat, checkuser, and oversight rights, for all Wikimedia wikis which do not have a local permissions procedure. 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 (see the index of request pages). Requests for bot status, URL blacklisting and whitelisting, and CheckUser queries belong elsewhere.

Interface-translations are done at Betawiki.

For urgent requests, such as to combat large-scale vandalism on a small wiki, contact a steward in the #wikimedia-stewardsconnect IRC channel (see a web-based IRC client). In emergencies only, type !steward in the channel to inform stewards that you need help.

Please only make requests here after gaining the on-wiki approval of your local community.

Meta-Wiki requests

Using this page

  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    = 
     |user name = 
     |discussion= 
    }}
    Thank you! ~~~~
    
  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"). Leave it blank and list them yourself if you're requesting access for multiple bots.
    • '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 identity

Certain permissions (notably CheckUser and Oversight) additionally require users to confirm their identity. Users requesting these permissions must make a request below, and must also submit the relevant identification to the Foundation. The request is placed on hold temporarily, until receipt has been formally confirmed by the office.

Instructions for how you can confirm your identity can be found at: Steward handbook/email templates.

For stewards: Identification noticeboard.

Requests

Administrator access

See administrator for information about the position. Requests for temporary permissions and removal of access belong in other sections.


Bureaucrat access

See bureaucrat for information about the position. In principle, requests for temporary bureaucrat access are not granted.

CheckUser access

To request CheckUser information, see Meta:Requests for CheckUser information. This is the place to request CheckUser access. Note that temporary CheckUser access is not permitted and the temporary status is only used by Stewards.

Stewards: When someone asks for CheckUser status, please check the current policy regarding bestowal of status before giving the status. The current mail template to use to request identification from the new CU can be found here. Do not grant CheckUser access unless the user is identified to the foundation, which will be announced on the Identification noticeboard. Breaching these rules may be cause for removing your steward access. When you give someone CheckUser, please list them on CheckUser, ask them to subscribe to checkuser-l, email checkuser-l-ownerAt sign.svglists.wikimedia.org so that the listadmins know the person is allowed on the mailing list (the list may contain confidential information), and make sure they contact an op for access to #wikimedia-checkuser.

Oversight access

Do not initiate an oversight request here. The Arbitration Committee will make the request once there is consensus on the local wiki (this process is currently for en-Wikipedia only).

Stewards: Do not grant Oversight access unless the user is identified to the foundation, which will be announced on the Identification noticeboard. When you give someone oversight access, list them on Hiding revisions.

Removal of access

If you're requesting the removal of your own status, make sure you're logged in to a global account or place an English note on your local user talk page to prove you own both accounts (and add the diff link of your local confirmation edit to the request).

To request the removal of another user's status, you must gain consensus on the local wiki first. All discussion must be kept on your local wiki. When there is community consensus that the user's access should be removed, a trusted person from that wiki should provide a link here to the discussion, a very brief explanation of the reason for the request, and summarize the results of discussion.

In either case, copy and paste the following text into the correct section (see instructions above).

====user name@xxproject====
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    = 
 |user name = 
 |discussion= 
}}

__Summary of discussion here__. Thank you! ~~~~

thatcher@enwiki

Please remove (temporarily) my sysop and checkuser access. I need a holiday. Thatcher 02:10, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Hello, please note, that we can't temporarily remove it, if You request removal, You will have to ask on wiki to get the rights back, still want this or make hollidays by just logging off a bit? Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 02:23, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
That's fine. I know the process when I am ready to come back. Thatcher 02:26, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Yk Yk Yk@mswiki

He has not been active for about 4.5 months! According to the rule & regulations in the Malay Wikipedia, a sysop who is inactive for at least 3 months shall be brought to consensus of desysopping. So I've brought up the matter here, but I was instructed to send Yk Yk Yk an e-mail to come and solve the problem. Later, Yk Yk Yk turned up and say that he/she/it wishes to resign. I wonder whether he/she/it knows about resigning here, so again, I sent an e-mail, but I didn't receive any reply, so I hope that any of you being a Steward please desysop him/her/it. Thank you! --אדמוןד ואודס自分の投稿記録 10:28, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

No. He needs to resign here personally. Otherwise there must be a community consensus made by active members of the community to desysop him. --Thogo (talk) 11:28, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

As I said, I've asked him/her/it to come here. But I wonder how long should I wait, so I request here. --אדמוןד ואודס自分の投稿記録 12:00, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Temporary permissions or emergency or technical access

If you are requesting administrator status to translate the wiki interface, this should done at the BetaWiki project instead (see mw:localisation). You can ask questions in the IRC channel or on the mailing list.

If you are requesting adminship to handle one-time vandalism incidents or clearing a deletion backlog, please see Vandalism reports and Multilingual speedy deletions.

Stewards: Currently active temporary permissions are listed at /Approved temporary. When granting a request, please copy the request to the appropriate section there, and clearly state the date of removal. Requests only need remain listed below for a few days, and may afterward be removed as long as they have been copied to the subpage.

PhiLiP@zhwikinews

Hello, I am a sysop of Chinese Wikipedia. Recently in Chinese Wikinews, there are some college students submit their homeworks of journalism. Most of those works were copyright violated or just not news. As a result, I need to request a temporary sysop permission of Chinese Wikinews for one month, to help wikinews deal with those inappropriate edits. Thank you! --PhiLiP 15:31, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

zh.wikinews has local active crats, please contact them, thanks, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 15:37, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
There is no active sysops on Chinese Wikinews now(see toolserver). And I can't contact any local sysops at all. --PhiLiP 15:49, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
Hello, this tool seems not to work correctly, please see [1], there is one active crat You can contact and also some admins. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 15:58, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
Sorry for yours...I'm busy right now. And birdy you saw that, it is my bot's action (for protect old news articles). I think you can give Philip a temporary permission for clean spam.(Useing my sister's laptop now, My books is broken)--Alex S.H. Lin 16:18, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks Alex S.H.Lin, Yes check.svg Done now, PhiLiP, please just leave a note in #Removal_of_access when You don't need the status anymore, thanks, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:09, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
Thank you. --PhiLiP 18:53, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

Miscellaneous requests

Requests that don't fit in other sections belong here. Note that the following types of requests belong on separate pages: bot status, URL blacklisting and whitelisting, and requests for CheckUser queries. If you want to have your Meta username changed, please go to Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat. If you want to have changed a username on a Wikimedia wiki without bureaucrats, please go to Requests for username changes.(Existing requests have been moved to the appropriate page.)

Reminder

  • Import rights can be granted by stewards only, not bureaucrats, so the automatic list of local bureaucrats is irrelevant for this; please show a link to a consensus if the wiki has a community.
  • Usurpation requests should be placed at Steward requests/Usurpation.
  • Username changes should be placed at Requests for username changes.
