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 projects which do not have a local permissions procedure.

Old sections are archived by a bot. Click here for a list of archives.

  • 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).
  • For urgent requests, such as to combat large-scale vandalism on a small wiki, contact a steward in the #wikimedia-stewardsconnect IRC channel. In emergencies, type !steward in the channel to get the attention of stewards. Otherwise, you can type @steward for non-urgent help.

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[edit]

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[edit]

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 Wikimedia Foundation. The request is placed on hold temporarily, until the receipt has been formally confirmed by the Office.

Requests[edit]

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

==== Username@xxproject ====
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    =
 |user name =
 |discussion= 
}}

Administrator access[edit]

See administrator for information about this user group.

  • MediaWiki interface translations are done at translatewiki.net. Please do not request administrator access solely for that purpose; your request will be declined.

  • Stewards: Please use {{Systmp}} for approved temporary requests. Approved temporary access requests are listed at SRAT. Requests are moved to that page by a bot.

Requests for removal of access should be posted at the section below.

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

Ivan Shmakov@ru.wikibooks[edit]

I’m not the only (and not even the most active) administrator at Russian Wikibooks these days. Still, I believe my involvement there in this capacity is beneficial to the project, so I hereby request that my privileges be prolonged for another 12 months. TIA. — Ivan Shmakov (dc) 06:37, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access[edit]

See bureaucrat for information about this user group.
  • In principle, requests for temporary bureaucrat access are not granted.

Requests for removal of access should be posted at the section below.

User Joxemai@EuWiki[edit]

Five months ago, after a voting in Basque Wikipedia, two users (Joxemai and Xabier Armendaritz) were granted bureaucrat rights in that wikipedia. Local bureaucrats are inactive and have not enforced that decision in all this time. --Xabier Armendaritz (talk) 14:36, 23 March 2015 (UTC) [Putting into proper form -- Avi (talk) 00:18, 24 March 2015 (UTC)]

These requests were placed on hold in order for the stewards to discuss it further. In general, and for years, the stewards have felt projects need to have a certain critical mass of activity in order for them to have local bureaucrats. There is no "hard-and-fast" rule, and different stewards may apply slightly different metrics, but the consensus amongst the stewards is that a project of the size and activity of EuWiki—and the activity around, and the response to, the two RfBs—would not qualify for implementing local bureaucrats on EuWiki. We understand that there are local bureaucrats on the project already, although they are rather inactive. Kabri has been inactive since 2011, with one sighting in June 2014. TXiKi has been more active, but has still been missing for over four months and has not made a bureaucratic action since September 2013. They are within their rights to act on this request should they return to activity. However, in light of the above, the consensus of the stewards engaged in the discussion up to this point is to declining these requests until EuWiki grows in activity. There may be stewards who have not engaged who may differ; in that case, they should please post here. Thank you. -- Avi (talk) 19:39, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

In the past it was the standard practice was assigning some bureaucrat flag in order to start a new project. It was due to the global aspect of Wikimedia being at its beginning. Now the standard practice is to manage most of userrights for smaller wikis via meta.

CheckUser access[edit]

See CheckUser policy for information about this user group and the policy governing the use of this tool.
  • To request CheckUser information, see Steward requests/Checkuser. This is the place to request CheckUser access.
  • Temporary CheckUser access is not permitted and temporary access is only used by stewards.

  • Stewards: Before granting this permission to a user, please check the current policy and make sure that the user has identified to the Wikimedia Foundation. An email template is available for requesting new users to identify. Breaching these rules may be the cause for removing your steward access.

Oversight access[edit]

See Oversight policy for information about this user group and the policy governing the use of this tool.
  • To request to have content oversighted, ask for a steward in #wikimedia-stewardsconnect and contact a steward privately. This section is for requesting access to the Oversight tool.
  • For contact details about oversighters across the wikis, refer to this page.
  • Note that temporary Oversight access is not permitted and temporary status is only used by stewards.

  • Stewards: Before granting this permission to a user, please check the current policy and make sure that the user has identified to the Wikimedia Foundation.
  • When a new user is assigned to this group, please add them to this list.

Removal of access[edit]

  • If you're requesting the removal of your own permissions, make sure you're logged in to your 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 permissions, you must gain consensus on the local wiki first. When there is community consensus that the user's access should be removed, a trusted user 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. However, as bureaucrats of some wikis may remove users from the administrator or bureaucrat group, please see also a separate list of these specific wikis.
  • See the instructions above for adding new requests. Please post new requests at the bottom of the section.

H.b.sh@fawikinews[edit]

A member of stew crew must leave him a message and if didn't respond within a week, remove his access. Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 00:41, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

You mean that the local policy wants stewards to send messages? If so, it would be good if the policy could at least be translated to English. --MF-W 21:05, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg: The policy says the admin must be informed before removal like AAR but we don't have a 'crat. On a AAR case on same wiki I personally left a message but it was not acceptable by stewards Rschen7754 left a message for the other admin. The consensus link I put in here (above) says everything. I don't need to put another time to translate the whole pages. why you keep making me move around? Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 21:23, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
I just left him a message about his inactivity, please remove his access if he didn't become active within a week per local policy which I linked above. Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 20:55, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
Hi Mjbmr, thanks for the link and posting a heads up on his talk page. I am putting this on hold until March 24, 20:53 (UTC). All the best, Taketa (talk) 21:35, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

La demande de FrankyLeRoutier, juste avant qu'il ne démissionne, n'est pas recevable car il n'a pas respecté notre prise de décision. / The demand from FrankyLeRoutier, just before he resigns, is not admissible because it did not respect our decision policy. Gfsas (talk) 17:06, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Are you saying that the above requests are not in accordance with FrWikiNews's local activity policy? -- Avi (talk) 18:29, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes, it's that I said, for example, we have to inform the user and wait for a response during 3 months before doing a request to steward. « Sans réponse de l'administrateur inactif dans un délai de trois mois, le bureaucrate demande l'intervention d'un Steward afin que ce dernier retire son statut à l'administrateur concerné, en se référant à la présente prise de décision. » Gfsas (talk) 11:17, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Closing as not done. Please follow the established local procedure before reporting here. Savhñ 12:05, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Abuse filter@gdwikitionary[edit]

I'm removing the administrator status of this account as long as this was added automatically by the system when global abusefilter #99 was set to issue blocks. Now that this filter is disabled and there's an agreement that for now no global filters should issue local blocks IIRC, this "fake" administrator account is not needed, as there's also no local filter enabled nor the filter is configured locally to issue blocks, so this is useless by now. Thanks. -- M\A 09:25, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
