Requests and proposals Requests for adminship on Meta Archives
This page hosts requests for administrator access on the Meta-Wiki; for requesting administrator access on any other wiki, please see the index of request and proposal pages, where a Steward can do the job if required. Bureaucrat, checkuser and bot requests are also made here. Before making a request here, please see the administrator policy.

Requests should be listed here for at least seven days; bureaucrats should only close after this minimum time. Adminship will be granted by a support ratio of at least 75%. If a request hasn't been addressed by a bureaucrat after a lengthy period of time, please leave a note at Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat. Requests may be extended, or put on hold by bureaucrats, pending decision or finding of consensus.

Requests for temporary adminship and bot requests may be less formal and often go for a shorter duration if consensus becomes clear after only a few days of discussion.

All editors with an account on Meta, at least one active account on any Wikimedia project, and a link between the two, may participate in any request and give their opinion of the candidate. However, more active Meta editors' opinions may be given additional weight in controversial cases.

See below for information on prerequisites on submitting a request, and how to add a nomination.

Information

Note that this page is for access on Meta only. See the Steward requests/Permissions page for adminship/deadminship requests on other projects.

Regular adminship

  1. Before requesting admin access, please ensure you meet all of the minimum criteria:
    • Have a user page on Meta, with links to the user pages on other participated projects. This can state that SUL is activated or be provided via a Wiki matrix if that is not possible.
    • Have a valid contact address (either a confirmed email address in preferences, or a valid email address on the user page).
    • Be a currently active contributor on Meta. This is a subjective, not an objective, measure and there is no official post count.
  2. As Meta has a cross-wiki role, admins here are expected to have cross wiki experience. SUL confirmation or a matrix will ensure that editing on other wikis can be easily seen. It would be expected that those seeking adminship here would have both reasonable experience here and on other wikis.
  3. Given the multi-lingual nature of Meta, {{#babel:}} information will be of use to others.
  4. Place a request on this page, by transcluding a subpage, for example {{Meta:Requests for adminship/Example}}. Please put the newest request on the top. Bear in mind that even if you do meet the criteria above this does not mean that the community will automatically approve a request. Please add a minimum ending date to the election, allowing a full 7 day period from the first timestamp:
    ''Ending {{subst:#time:j F Y H:i|+1 week}} UTC''
    

Please note: Ill-considered nominations for adminship can be draining and deflating to both the community and the candidate. Any successful candidate will need to be able to demonstrate sufficient experience within the Wikimedia community, in addition to a familiarity with Meta-Wiki. If a candidate is not already a local administrator or holder of advanced permissions on a Wikimedia content project, he or she is less likely pass a request for adminship here at Meta-Wiki.

Bureaucratship

Add your request below under the bureaucratship section. Please note:

  • Only active administrators can become bureaucrats, and only after at least 6 months of regular adminship.
  • User is endorsed by two current bureaucrats after he/she nominates themselves here.

If you fail any of these requirements, you will not be assigned the bureaucrat flag. For more information see Meta:Bureaucrats.

Other access

For these types of access, create a subpage just as you would for regular adminship and add it to the appropriate section of this page.
  • Temporary adminship: If you need temporary sysop access for a particular reason (such as ability to edit protected pages), you may request temporary adminship on meta. In this case, adminship shall be granted with no requirements and approval, but the user will promise to limit their activity to the necessity of what they asked for. Temporary sysop access will normally be valid for one month.
  • Bot: Please read the bot policy. This wiki allows global bots and automatic approval of certain types of bots; for other bots, add your request below under the bot section, in the same way as an admin request.
  • CheckUser: please read the CheckUser policy and add your request below under the checkuser section, in the same way as an admin request.
  • Oversight: please read the Oversight policy and add your request below under the oversight section, in the same way as an admin request.
  • Translation administrator: please read Meta:Translation administrator and Meta:Translate extension. No fixed time limit for these requests is defined, and there are no particular requirements; if you provide a valid reason your request will be granted.
  • Centralnotice administrator: was added as a way to avoid granting the full administrator rights package to those who primarily only need to edit banner campaigns. Because of the potentially huge impact of banners on the wikis, this should be granted carefully and sparingly.
For these types of access, just ask on Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat.
  • MassMessage sender: please read about MassMessage, and provide a clear reason for requesting access. Specify a duration, or specifically request ongoing if needed.
  • Uploaders
Global renamer permissions are handled at Steward requests/Global permissions.

Uğurkent

Hi Wikimedians! I'm contributing to the 26 wikis. I'm sysop on Wikimedia Turkey and Turkish Wikinews. I'm editor on Turkish Wikipedia and Turkish Wikiquote. Here, too, am a member of the autopatrolled. I think I can do this job as a volunteer. What do you think? Good wikis. --Uğurkenttalk 22:03, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Oppose Oppose. Has only been an admin for a week on tr.wikimedia and a temp admin on tr.wikinews since today proving a lack of experience. Has also not shown any need for the tools here on meta. Savhñ 22:46, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Your edits seem fine, and thank you for your offer to help. However, your lack of edits in the Talk: namespace and few edits in Meta: indicate you have little experience in the "meta-Meta" part of Meta. You also have no deleted edits (speedy deletion requests). What would you do as an admin? I would also recommend you consider helping out as a translation admin instead if this request fails (read the docs on MediaWiki.org), since that seems to be your focus. PiRSquared17 (talk) 22:55, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, Yes it's true that you also. I immediately delete a page I made ​​vandalism and block user. For convenience, I would like to receive a portion of the business. --Uğurkenttalk 22:57, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Per Savh. User has also requested Global Rollback and translation adminship and did not succeed. It is also somewhat hard to understand this user's English. Even though Meta is multilingual, I would want someone who can at least speak some English correctly. Eurodyne (talk) 23:23, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment Comment Why? What are you planning to do? Where are you planning to do it? What is the need for admin tools related to the tasks?  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:43, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per above. It doesn't seem like you have a need for the tools. -FASTILY 06:43, 1 November 2014 (UTC)
