Requests
For stewards
Noticeboards

Stewards are users with complete access to the wiki interface on all Wikimedia wikis, including the ability to change any and all user rights and groups. They are tasked with technical implementation of community consensus, and dealing with emergencies such as cross-wiki vandalism. Stewards are empowered to act as members of any permissions group on any project with no active member of that permissions group. For example: wikis without administrators may call upon stewards to fulfill that role; stewards will act as bureaucrats as needed on wikis without bureaucrats.

To gain emergency assistance or to ask a question, join the IRC channel #wikimedia-stewardsconnect and write !steward in this channel to notify stewards of an emergency. For regular requests, see the list of request pages in the box at right. To contact a steward directly, use that steward's talk page. Requests can also be sent to the steward OTRS queue at stewards-at-wikimedia.org.

Stewards generally do not perform actions on wikis where local users are available to perform them, except in emergency or cross-wiki cases. This arrangement originated in the need to dissociate rights management from software development and systems administration.

Stewards do have a rough equivalent to being global sysops: they can block and unblock users on any Wikimedia wiki, even without assigning themselves the local sysop permission.

New stewards are regularly (once or twice a year) elected by the global Wikimedia community. Their total number is not limited. The Elections are organized by existing stewards and run for roughly three weeks. Successful candidates must have a support-to-oppose ratio of at least 80% with at least 30 supporting editors.

Current stewards are confirmed during the elections through an open call for community feedback and commentary, followed by discussion and consensus-building among the stewards. A team of stewards closes the elections and confirmation discussions. Further documentation can be found in the steward policies, election process, and handbook.
