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.

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.

Hi Biplab Anand, we can only grant permanent adminship if there are at least 2 permanent admins. Therefor this will have to be a temporary adminship until such time that there is a second candidate. We can however grant temporary adminship for 12 months. I am putting this on hold until 30 March, so the election has been a full 5 days. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 08:12, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

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.

FeodorBezuhov@ro.wikipedia[edit]

On 5 April 2014, FeodorBezuhov announced his retirement from wikipedia clearing his userpage and writing in summary "M-am retras" (English: I'm retiring). In the same day he also deleted a lot of his user subpages, for each specifying the same reason in edit summary Excluding those actions on own userpages in 2014, his last edit was on 7 November 2013, and previous edit was on 28 August 2013. Those was his only 2 edits in 2013!

You can remove his admin flag now, or you can wait one more week, when, according to ro.wikipedia local sysop policy his admin rights expires by inactivity.

It says literally that administrators and bureaucrats loses their spacial permissions in case of inactivity more than 1 year.

The withdrawal request in case of permissions expiry may be submitted by anyone on Requests for permissions (this page). As justification, request must contain a link to the policy page. ([13]).

All bureaucrats@zh.wiktionary[edit]

After asking on 2015-03-05 the other bureaucrats, Shizhao [14] and Wjcd [15], with no answer and no emails readily possible, I started a local vote on whether to remove all bureaucrats on 2015-03-22 with no objection so far. Considering very limited needs to add administrators and bots, please remove all of our bureaucrat flags, but keep our other flags, like sysops and imports. Thanks.Jusjih (talk) 01:42, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Shizhao was active on 9 Wikimedia projects outside Wiktionary last week. Last edit two days ago. I have asked for their response. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 07:07, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
Wjcd is still active and opposes this request. Ajraddatz (talk) 02:45, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
Request withdrawn for now, but if we get too few requests for new administrators and bots, I may reconsider in the future.--Jusjih (talk) 03:26, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Manwë@es.wikipedia[edit]

Hi. According to the local policies, Manwë has not enough administrative actions to be a sysop or a 'crat on eswiki. Requerimment is 50 admin actions on past two years. Please remove his both bureaucrat and administrator flags. BetoCG (talk) 05:46, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done - Thank you BetoCG. Please thank Manwë for their work. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 07:19, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
