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.

MetaWiki 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.

Dark Eagle@ltg.wikipedia

Hello. Latgalian Wikipedia was opened 4 days ago, and now we need administrator. I was test-admin in the Incubator. So till we don't have big community, please give me a temporary status of the administrator. Thanks! Dark Eagle 16:07, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

granted for 6 months. expires on 22.9.2011 Matanya 16:10, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Strainubot@ro.wikisource

Bot requires adminship for around 3 weeks to replace old diacritics to new ones in accordance with similar procedures on ro.wp and ro.news. --Rebel 09:57, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

can you please start a local discussion? or link to one? Matanya 10:00, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
There is no local discussion, there was one at ro.w but I think it is insufficient. The account has just been created and will also need bot rights. I will start a local discussion and will get back to you.--Strainu 10:08, 23 March 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.

user דניאל ב.@hewiki

idantifiction has been sent. Daniel B 18:43, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Identification received; Yes check.svg Done. PeterSymonds (talk) 20:39, 23 March 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.

==== username@domain ====
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    = 
 |user name = 
 |discussion= <!-- local confirmation link / local policy link -->
}}
Your remarks, etc. --~~~~

LukMak@plwiki

Deadstar@commonswiki

-FASTILY (TALK) 22:11, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. -- Mentifisto 22:14, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

MLauba@enwiki

Self-requested. Going on indefinite wikibreak. MLauba 09:08, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Sorry to hear, thanks for your work. Matanya 09:10, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Jack Merridew, again

Status:    Done

Not sure if this is really the right place, but mebbe someone could flip-off all the 'free-bits' such as autopatrolled and rollback?

Terima kasih, Jack Merridew 07:21, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Done on Meta-Wiki, Commons and En. PeterSymonds (talk) 08:12, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
Done at en_labswikimedia. I see no other rights on this account so closing. -- Dferg ☎ talk 22:00, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

נטע@hewiki

Please remove my sysop rights. Thanks and best wishes, נטע 19:58, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, thanks for your work. -- Mentifisto 20:00, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

extransit@enwiki

Remove all permissions. Extransit 22:48, 26 March 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:

SPQRobin @ltgwiki @kbdwiki @sqwikinews

Status:    Done

Hi. I'd like to request temporary import & sysop access to import pages from Incubator to these new wikis. SPQRobin (talk) 22:02, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, temporary one month adminship to expire 18 April 2011. Please let us know if you need it removed before then. Thanks for your work. PeterSymonds (talk) 22:06, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Shijualex@sawikisource

Placing the request here as per above discussion. Request for admin rights and import rights in Sanskrit wikisource.

The Sanskrit wikisource (http://sa.wikisource.org) is created today. I was the person who proposed it and I am involved in building the community for Sanskrit wiki projects.

A huge amount of Sanskrit source text is available in old wikisource (Sanskrit main page in old wikisource, and Sanskrit pages category). I want to import all these pages to newly created wikisource. Also I am involved in the community building program for Sanskrit wiki projects. Admin rights and import rights in Sanskrit wikisource are a must for these tasks. Kindly approve my request for admin right in Sanskrit wikisource. --Shijualex 16:09, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Temporary sysop and import for one month, expires on 19 April. Jafeluv 17:40, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Prince Kassad@sahwikisource

I'm requesting temporary import rights to import the pages from oldwikisource over to the new wiki (since nobody else seems to be willing to). -- Prince Kassad 18:56, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done temporarily for one month, to expire 19 April 2011. Please let us know if you finish before than, and thanks for your work. PeterSymonds (talk) 19:37, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

You also can enable sources for transwiki import, so any sysop can import pages from such sources without extra flags. You can ask in bugzilla: -- Màñü飆¹5 talk [es] 00:27, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
