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.

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 ====
     |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
     |domain    =
     |user name =
    (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.


COPY THE FOLLOWING CODE to the bottom of the appropriate section below:

==== Username@xxproject ====
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    =
 |user name =

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.

Currently-active temporary permissions are listed at /Approved temporary; please use {{Systmp}} for temporary permission. Please invite new sysops to the admin IRC channel.
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.

MalTsilna @ tt.wikibooks.org

Good day! Not if you could extend the term of my administration in the Tatar Wikibooks another 3 months. --MalTsilna 13:52, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Hello MalTsilna. Can you please post an advisory notice on the local village pump first? - Even if there's no community it's the standard procedure. I see that you've been granted 6 months temp. adminship this time, therefore we can grant you temp. adminship for another 6 months. Regards, -- Dferg ☎ talk 17:40, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
OK! I'll try to do it, but so far I have exams and I need some time to get it all organized. -- 19:30, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Stephen G. Brown & Seb az86556@nvwikipedia

  1. October 15, 2009 - December 15, 2009
  2. December 15, 2009 - June 15, 2010
  3. June 15, 2010 - December 14, 2010
  4. December 15, 2010 - June 15, 2011

(It would be nice if some longer time-frame could be considered; we've been doing this for almost 2 years now.) Ahéheeʼ. Seb az86556 04:48, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done I simply archived notification for access removal. Almost two years have passed in temporary access, users are trusted, native speaker community is small; two admins. --Millosh 15:28, 11 June 2011 (UTC)


Could you please extend my adminship? It seems expired today. Thanks. @=={Lionslayer> 13:44, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Even if there is no community, please post a note at the local village pump saying that you're requesting temporary adminship there. We will wait a week more or less and if there's no opposition, we can grant you again temporary adminship. Regards, -- Dferg ☎ talk 14:08, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
Since I was granted adminship on 15th of Mar, I thought it will expire on 15th of May. It seems the date start counting from the date of request. @=={Lionslayer> 15:47, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
That's right, it should have expired on 15 June. [1][2] However, you still need to post a local note for extension (which I see you've done now). Jafeluv 15:53, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

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 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.

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.

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.

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

Blunt.@dewiki, Catfisheye@dewiki, Gustavf@dewiki, Hei_ber@dewiki

Yes check.svg Done - All removed. -Barras 15:06, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, you are very fast, faster than me. :-) --Geitost diskusjon 15:19, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Your remarks, etc. I did not volunteer my valuable time and work my tail off to become an administrator only to have to (a) block the same idiots time and time again and (b) be the subject of off-wiki attacks. I have been in touch with Maggie Dennis at the Foundation over this and while she hopes I'll reconsider, I am requesting desysoping so that I won't be tempted to return. Perhaps someday,when th Foundation rethinks itsposition on things like rangeblocks and real action against potentially dangerous individuals who single out administrators, I will return. In the meantime, I just want to get gone. PMDrive1061 03:15, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

 Not done Requests should be from la logged in user.. Thanks--Jyothis 03:15, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

I am logged in. I tried logging into Wikipedia locally and I didn't realize I could do so here. Thanks for being so diligent, however. PMDrive1061 03:16, 14 June 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:
