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 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.

Using this page

When requesting permissions, copy and paste the following text into the correct section. Please fill in all the required fields -- language code, link to the local request (or other means of confirming that the request has approval), and link to your local user page. Without this information, a steward cannot process your request.

Please summarize your request in the "summary".

==== Username@language-code project-name ====
I request sysop access.
*'''Language Code:''' xx
*'''Local Request Link:''' [[:xx:Project:wiki]]
*'''Automatic List of local bureaucrats:''' [[:<xx:project>:Special:Listusers/bureaucrat]]
*'''Local User Page:''' [[xx:User:Example]]

Thank you. ~~~~

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.

Jordz@ceb-wp

I am requesting that ceb:User:Jordz be made a bureaucrat of the Cebuano Wikipedia. I had already made him a sysop and he had been one for a long time now, and had helped the community in countless ways. I think it is proper to make him a bureaucrat by this time so that he can do more for the community. Currently there is only one bureaucrat at ceb-wp (yours truly).

Thank you. --Bentong Isles 06:08, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

I was under the impression that some sort of local discussion had to take place prior to a bureaucrat being locally appointed? Anthøny 07:43, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
I thought the local bureaucrat is able to grant those rights himself. Is the steward action really neccessary here? --Zirland 07:45, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
 Not done. Exactly. Bentong Isles, please use ceb:Special:UserRights to make Jordz bureaucrat yourself. Steward action is unnecessary. --FiLiP ¤ 08:05, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
My bad. I thought I could not do that myself. Thanks, I've promoted him myself already. @Anthony: There are only virtually four users at the Cebuano Wikipedia today (Jordz, Edgar Godin, s.o. who always forget to login, and yours truly). My main reason for the request was the fact that I got involved in a project which is taking too much of my time (discussed in my user page) and I could not deal with some matters efficiently. --Bentong Isles 11:24, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

CheckUser access

To request CheckUser information, see Request for CheckUser information. This is the place to request CheckUser access. Note that temporary CheckUser access is not permitted.

Stewards: When someone asks for CheckUser status, please check the current policy regarding bestowal of status before giving the status. Do not grant CheckUser access unless the user is identified to the foundation, which will be announced here. 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@wikipedia.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 here. When you give someone oversight access, list them on Hiding revisions.

Removal of access

If you want to request that your own status be removed, please don't forget to place a note on your local user talk page (preferably with an English translation). This is required to prove your identity. And then add the request here. You should add the difflink 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.

Copy and paste the following text into the correct section. Fill in all the required fields -- language code, link to the local request, and link to your local user page. Without this information, a steward cannot process your request.

==== Username@language-code project-name ====
I request removal of access.
*'''Language Code:''' xx
*'''Local Confirmation/Request Link:''' <!--Difflink of the local confirmation edit (for own requests), or link to the community decision-->
*'''Local User Page:''' [[xx:User:Example]]

Thank you. ~~~~

Please summarize your request in the "summary".

Coredesat@en.wikipedia

I request removal of sysop status, as I'm retiring from Wikipedia.

Thank you. Coredesat (en.wp) 18:20, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Temporary permissions for emergency or technical purposes

If you are requesting administrator status to make a translation of the wiki interface, see also the BetaWiki project, which seeks to make a neutral MediaWiki translation that will then be default for all wikis. That is more useful than only making a local translation. You can ask questions in the IRC channel or in the mailing list. See also MediaWiki localisation. 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.

Copy and paste the following text into the correct section. Fill in all the required fields -- language code, link to the list of sysops and bureaucrats, local request link, link to your local user page, and the preferred duration with a reason. Without this information, a steward cannot process your request.

==== Username@language-code project-name ====
I request temporary sysop access.
*'''Language Code:''' xx
*'''List of local sysops:''' [[xx:Special:Listadmins]]
*'''List of local bureaucrats:''' [[xx:Special:Listusers/bureaucrat]]
*'''Local Request Link:''' [[xx:Example]]
*'''Local User Page:''' [[xx:User:Example]]
*'''Preferred duration and reason:''' 
Thank you. ~~~~

Yes check.svg Done no active bct there, granted sysop status until April 03 --Zirland 08:01, 27 March 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.)

Melancholie@als.wiki

The following discussion is closed.

I request a temporary import user status in order to import all pages from the Alemannic Wiktionary, Wikibooks etc. into the Alemannic Wikipedia. This has to be done according to a community decision to merge Wikipedia & Co., read more there. I was voted for getting a temporary import right, see this vote. After everything is done, Wikibooks & Co. will have to be closed and deleted, see this vote (requests will follow then).

Yes check.svg Done, right set, please let us know when You have finished. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 15:50, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
