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.

Requests for CentralNotice adminship

Kai Nissen (WMDE)

Hi,

I need a renewal of the CentralNotice adminship for the Fundraiser 2014.

Cheers, Kai Nissen (WMDE) (talk) 10:36, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Requests for bot flags

SteinsplitterBot

Bot's tasks for which permission is being sought: Getting auto-archiving on stewards' pages on (SN)

Automatic or manually assisted: automatic

Edit type (e.g. Continuous, daily, one time run): every hour (?)

Maximum edit rate (e.g. edits per minute): mw:API:Etiquette

Programming language(s): php (quentinv's script from ts-svn)

--Steinsplitter (talk) 18:11, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

  • QuentinvBot is inactive so we need a replacement to do the archiving of the pages which it had done so far (SR/... pages, WM:SBL & WM:CHU (CHU won't be needed in the future?). QuentinvBot didn't have the bot flag due to its low editing rate but it did have the sysop flag for the purpose of editing SRAT. Instead of granting SteinsplitterBot the sysop flag, I suggest to set up an abusefilter to protect SRAT. What do others think? --Glaisher (talk) 11:49, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Also, QuentinvBot's sysop flag should be removed? --Glaisher (talk) 11:57, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Oppose Oppose Strongly oppose to SteinsplitterBot. Already QuentinvBot is a bot for archiving. --Kolega2357 (talk) 20:22, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

  • That is ok, the user already a bot running on other wikies and the other bot is not active at the moment. Furthermore, two different people may well share this task. --M/ (talk) 20:24, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
    • This is a revanche because i removed userrights of this users on other wikis and banned him from irc channel. --Steinsplitter (talk) 20:28, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
    @Kolega2357: did you miss the bit about Q's bot being inactive? We have tried to discuss with him about getting the keys to numbers of tools, and he has yet to respond, so we are doing that manually which is such a waste of effort. So I asked Steinsplitter to see if his bot was functionally capable of archiving those pages, and that is a yes. So that is where we are, and now Steinsplitter has offered his bot to share the task.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:56, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    Kolega can't respond, because M/ blocked him for his oppose (or, as M/ always puts it, "Intimidating behaviour/harassment"). ~ DanielTom (talk) 11:17, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
Approved. I'll not archive for a day for the rest to see this approval. Matanya (talk) 17:20, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Special:AbuseFilter/93 setup and SRAT protection modified. --Glaisher (talk) 17:36, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Works. Improvements are difficult, imho it need a rewrite (for which i have no time). --Steinsplitter (talk) 20:01, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
