Sadly, for some time now I have been unable to contribute enough time to Wikipedia. In the interests of security and avoiding user confusion when people request me to wade into "drama", it's best all around for me to not have the sysop flag, at least until I have more time and can use the local wiki's procedures to regain it.

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 wikis which do not have a local permissions procedure. Please check the sidebar to the right to see whether your request belongs better elsewhere. Specifically, bot requests, requests for CheckUser information and global rights requests belong on their respective pages.

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).

Interface translations are done at translatewiki. Please do not request administrator access for that purpose; your request will be declined.

For urgent requests, such as to combat large-scale vandalism on a small wiki, contact a steward in the #wikimedia-stewardsconnect IRC channel (web client). In emergencies only, type !steward in the channel to inform stewards that you need help. Otherwise, you can use @steward to gain attention if the channel is quiet.

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.

Quick navigation: Administrator | Bureaucrat | CheckUser | Oversight | Removal of access | Miscellaneous | Global permissions | Unexpired temporary access

Cross-wiki requests
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= 
    }}
    (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 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 the receipt has been formally confirmed by the office.

Requests

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 access

See administrator for information about the position. Requests for removal of access belong in another section. Admins doing cross-wiki work may wish to see IRC/wikimedia-admin for information about joining #wikimedia-admin.

If you are requesting administrator status to translate the wiki interface, this should be done at the translatewiki.net 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 Steward requests/Miscellaneous.

Stewards
Currently-active temporary permissions are listed at /Approved temporary; please use {{Systmp}} for temporary permission. Please invite new sysops to the admin IRC channel.
Archiving
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. Users who archive requests on that page, please check if the request was correctly added to the temporary subpage before removing it from this page.

For permanent sysopship please provide a link to the local community approval. For temporary sysopship please state for how long and for which tasks you need it, and link to a local announcement.

user name@Phased_array_ultrasonics

Hello, I would like to translate this page in french. I try to read the notice but I lost myself on the documentation. I just want to know how I can translate this page : http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Phased_array_ultrasonics To improve my knowledge in wikipedia editing and creating documents. Thanks a lot Xavier Faure

Hello, This is not a valid request. -- බිඟුවා සාකච්ඡාව 16:15, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Hello, Why this is not a valid request. -- User Xavier Faure 20:45, 15 February 2011
The request doesn't pertain to user group rights, so this is really the wrong page. Have you looked at en:Wikipedia:Translation and fr:Projet:Traduction yet? You can ask for help on the discussion pages there. Have a nice day! Kylu 21:11, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Gazeb@rue.wikipedia

Hello, I would like to be temporary administrator at Rusyn wiki for 6 months. There are some things to do (protect pages, corrections in namespaces ...). I created most of the Rusyn pages in the Incubator where I am test administrator. --Gazeb 19:23, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

I see one opposition against your local request. I am putting this on hold for a while.Jusjih 10:26, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
Please consider that this opposition is against any request for administrator. The user does not want any administrator. I do not see any relation directly to my person. --Gazeb 11:07, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
Indeed, I've seen opposes from that user to adminship requests on numerous wikis (e.g. here). --MF-W 18:24, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
So, what we are waiting for? --Gazeb 21:32, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done, expires Aug 12, 2011. I do recall that user as well... Shanel 21:39, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Bhawani Gautam Rhk@ne.wiktionary

Could you add a link to the local discussion, please? Wutsje 13:17, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
Yes, two user have voted after 6th February, after temp sysop-ship was granted on 6th Feb.this is the link, Thanks--Bhawani 13:33, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

schoolcraftT@commons

 Not done While you're not clear on if you're asking for en.wikipedia or commons, both projects have bureaucrats, so stewards can not grant you temporary sysop status. Thanks anyway. Kylu 21:03, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

See bureaucrat for information about the position. In principle, requests for temporary bureaucrat access are not granted.
General note
There is an ongoing discussion regarding the minimum number of votes and overall participation to promote users to bureaucrat at Talk:Bureaucrat/2010-02#Minimum number of votes (see also this RFC). Users are encouraged to assist in the development of a policy that allows stewards to not decide on whether a promotion is valid or not. Thank you.

CheckUser access

To request CheckUser information, see Steward requests/Checkuser. 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 before giving the status. There is an email template to request identification from the new CU. Do not grant CU access unless the user is identified to the Foundation. 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-owner-at-lists.wikimedia.org so the listadmins know the person is allowed on the mailing list, and make sure they contact an op for access to #wikimedia-privacy and #wikimedia-checkuser.

欅@jawiki

Please CheckUser access, discussion of local election on Japanese Wikipedia. I send identification information to User:欅 via an e-mail message. Thank you. --Carkuni 15:24, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold, awaiting ID. -- Dferg ☎ talk 12:14, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
Comment Comment I report that the identification was completed. --Chatama 22:33, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done --FiliP ██ 12:32, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Oversight access

To request to have content oversighted, ask in #wikimedia-stewards, or email oversight-l-at-lists.wikimedia.org for requests regarding English Wikipedia. This is the place to request Oversight access. Note that temporary Oversight access is not permitted and the temporary status is only used by Stewards.

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 Oversight.

Removal of access

If you're requesting the removal of your own status, make sure you're logged in to a global 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 status, you must gain consensus on the local wiki first. All discussion must take place 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 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). Please post requests at the bottom of the section.

However, as the bureaucrats of a few wikis may remove users from the administrator or bureaucrat group, please see also a separate list of these specific wikis.

Mosesofmason has been desysop according to a community poll. Please remove his sysop access. --PhiLiP 14:39, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

martinp23@enwiki_p

Sadly, for some time now I have been unable to contribute enough time to Wikipedia. In the interests of security and avoiding user confusion when people request me to wade into "drama", it's best all around for me to not have the sysop flag, at least until I have more time and can use the local wiki's procedures to regain it. Cheers for the experience :). --Martinp23 19:24, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Miscellaneous requests

Requests that don't fit in other sections belong here. Import rights can be granted on most wikis by stewards only, not bureaucrats, so the automatic list of local bureaucrats is irrelevant for this. Please gather community consensus before placing a link to the discussion here.

Note that the following types of requests belong on separate pages:

2011 Ombudsman Committee

The following users have been appointed to the Ombudsman Committee and need to have their rights suspended for their term:

Done. --M/ 00:18, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Done. --M/ 00:18, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Done. --M/ 00:18, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Done.
Please check, user has Oversight permission that was *not* removed. --M/ 00:18, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
It's my view that oversight permission should not be removed. It wasn't removed in my case last year. FloNight's OV permission should be retained, or turned back on if it's off. ++Lar: t/c 01:06, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
Done. --M/ 00:20, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

The following users have finished their terms on the Ombudsman Committee and will need their rights restored:

Done. --M/ 00:25, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
For the record, my rights should be
  • Admin, CU on en:wp
  • Admin, crat, OV, CU on Commons.
and no others. I gave up all my Meta rights, and it is asserted that I was not reconfirmed as a steward. ++Lar: t/c 16:11, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
OK, that means that only CU@commons needed to be restored, which I've just Yes check.svg Done. --FiliP ██ 16:15, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Done. --M/ 00:25, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Done. --M/ 00:25, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Done. --M/ 00:25, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Additional discussion: The announcement of the new Ombudsman Committee is here: [1]. Please let me know if there is additional information needed. Thank you!! Christine (WMF) 00:00, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

All done, please check Oversight permission on en:User:FloNight.
Thank you, M/ 00:25, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Thank you! However, i seem to have made an error. I requested Lar to have steward permissions restored, however he was not reconfirmed as a steward, and should not have had that bit replaced. Can it be removed again? Thank you and again, I'm sorry for the confusion! Christine (WMF) 00:37, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
don't worry, it's not a big problem Yes check.svg Done :)--Nick1915 - all you want 00:48, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Okay, I've also set and removed global permission accordingly. --M/ 00:56, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Thank you again! Last change, sorry! FloNight does have OS permissions on en.wiki and will need to also have that suspended for her term on the Committee. Okay. I think that's it this time. Thank you again, again! Christine (WMF) 01:00, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done--Nick1915 - all you want 01:04, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Reviewing the recent changes it looks like one permission has not been removed? If you look at the global rights it seems Palnatoke's rights from last year have not been removed. Thanks --Herby talk thyme 08:54, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

And that is Yes check.svg Done now. --FiliP ██ 09:18, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks :) --Herby talk thyme 12:40, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Comment Comment Mwpnl was appointed to the commission though nobody has granted him yet the global ombudsman permission. I've asked Christine if it can be added or not. -- Dferg ☎ talk 21:16, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Oversight removal?

Discussion moved to the talk page. --Dferg 21:20, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Discuss this.

Temporary importer access

Huji 00:29, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Please report back when you're done. --FiliP ██ 12:35, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
I'm done; please remove my importer access. Thanks a lot Huji 22:52, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
Removed. --FiliP ██ 22:56, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Temporary sysos access

Have you asked locally? Laaknor 16:43, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
There is no local bureaucrat on kmwikt. I just need it for Temporary 3 months. Thanks --Dictuser 16:49, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
You still need to ask on a local village pump or other page, and wait for around a week so others can comment on your request.  Not done for now.Laaknor 16:52, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
