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.

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 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 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.

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

Ani_ttbr@aswikisource[edit]

I'd like to re-apply for an adminship on as.wikisource as this wiki doesn't have any administrator this time. So, please grant me administrator right for 6 months. Ani ttbr (talk) 13:23, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Please first post a request on the local village pump or admin requests page - then wait 7 days and we will grant you the right. Trijnsteltalk 13:33, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Implicit within Trijnstel's statement is that as long as the community does not object, then we can grant the right.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:07, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Hym411@kowikinews[edit]

My third (First on Dec 2013 (1st), Second on Mar 2014 (2nd and SRAT)) RfA has 2/0/1, and since community is still small, I don't expect any more vote. Revicomplaint? 03:53, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

You know that your current temporary rights are still ongoing? --MF-W 09:55, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes, but it's expiring in 3 weeks, so I want it to be extended. Revicomplaint? 12:18, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
the clock starts on the period whenever we process it, would you like this to be on hold for a couple of weeks, and we do it closer to the cutoff?  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:30, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes, please. Revicomplaint? 09:32, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. --Janezdrilc (talk) 09:21, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access[edit]

See bureaucrat for information about the position. In principle, requests for temporary bureaucrat access are not granted.
General note
There is an ongoing discussion regarding the minimum number of votes and overall participation to promote users to bureaucrat at Talk:Bureaucrat/2010-02#Minimum number of votes (see also this RFC). Users are encouraged to assist in the development of a policy that allows stewards to not decide on whether a promotion is valid or not. Thank you.

CheckUser access[edit]

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.

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.

Callanecc@enwiki[edit]

Please issue checkuser rights to this user, who we have appointed to the English Wikipedia Audit Subcommittee. He has already identified.

Thank you. For the Arbitration Committee, AGK [•] 19:17, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. I'll arrange the other stuff too. Trijnsteltalk 20:58, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Joe Decker@enwiki[edit]

After identification has been received by the WMF, please issue checkuser rights to this user. He has been appointed to the English Wikipedia Audit Subcommittee.

Thank you. For the Arbitration Committee, AGK [•] 19:17, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. ID was received. I'll arrange the other stuff too. Trijnsteltalk 20:58, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Oversight access[edit]

To request to have content oversighted, ask in #wikimedia-stewards, or, for requests regarding English Wikipedia email oversight-en-wp-at-wikipedia.org. 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.

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.

Callanecc@enwiki[edit]

Please issue oversight rights to this user, who we have appointed to the English Wikipedia Audit Subcommittee. He has already identified.

Thank you. For the Arbitration Committee, AGK [•] 19:18, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Removal of access[edit]

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

FeodorBezuhov@rowiki[edit]

On 5 April 2014, user FeodorBezuhov announced his retirement from wikipedia clearing his userpage and writing "M-am retras" (en: I retired.) In the same day he also deleted a lot of his user sub-pages, for each specifying in edit summary: "M-am retras" (en: I retired.) Also, you can analyze history og his contributions. Excludin actions on own userpages, his latest edit was on --article "George Scutaru" on 7 Nov 2013. Previous edit was on 28 August 2013. Those was only 2 edits in 2013!!

In 2012 he has 19 actions: 1 in November, 8 in October, 1 in June, 5 in May, 2 in February and 2 in March. Then, his latest stable edits comes from 2011.

His last edit in Wikipedia namespace was on 25 May 2012. Previous - on 17 April 2011.

So, we can consider he is no longer active since 2011 or 2012. In 2-3 years rowiki policy underwent substantial changes and is supposed he is not aware of this. And finally, as i presented at the begginning - in 2014 he himself said he withdrew.

According to those arguments i ask you to remove FeodorBezuhov's admin status on rowiki. 82.77.75.174 10:57, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

@AdiJapan, Andrei Stroe, Rsocol: Would one of you please confirm the resignation and the stewards to remove the right.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:47, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Technically, FeodorBezuhov didn't ask formally for the termination of his adminship. Second, his last edit was less than 1 year ago, so his admin rights shouldn't be revoked for inactivity. Thirdly, he wasn't dismissed by the community for any other reason. And those three things are the only reasons for removing admin rights on ro.wp. As such, I recommend keeping the status quo until one of those things happen. — AdiJapan 03:21, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
I've actually met him by chance a few months back, and he said he has very little time for Wikipedia right now and he only edits once in a while. That said, ro.wp has a local procedure for removing sysop rights. It may be so that he is not up-to-date with the policies, but this should be decided by the local community. In fact, a local discussion was initiated, but failed to gather enough pro votes.Andrei Stroe (talk) 05:35, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Per above, Marking this as  Not done--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 06:40, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Excluding actions on own userpages, his latest edit was on --Template:Selectedpages on 19 Feb 2013. Previous edit was on 12 January 2013. There were only 2 edits in 2013. --Good afternoon (talk) 11:36, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Considering you are the proposer and only voter, it would maybe be better to leave this as AAR. Savhñ 11:01, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Miscellaneous requests[edit]

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:
