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.

Quick navigation: Administrator | Interface administrator | Bureaucrat | CheckUser | Oversight | Removal of access | Miscellaneous | Global permissions

Cross-wiki requests
Meta-Wiki requests

Using this page

1. Place the following code at the bottom of the appropriate section below:

==== User name@xxproject ====
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    = <!-- such as en.wikibooks -->
 |user name =
(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 signing confidentiality agreement

Certain permissions (notably CheckUser and Oversight) additionally require users to sign a confidentiality agreement. Users requesting these permissions must make a request below, and must also sign the confidentiality agreement with the Wikimedia Foundation. The request is placed on hold temporarily, until the receipt has been formally confirmed by the Office.


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

 and also mistakes. Thank you. 

Administrator access

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.

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.


Recent changes patroller on ro.wikipedia with a long history on patrolling, I'm requesting temporary adminship on ro.wikivoyage for cleanup purposes only. If requested, I can give specific examples about what exactly I intend to do. Thank you. Wintereu 23:05, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

On hold until 4 February. --MF-W 23:08, 28 January 2017 (UTC)
Per local rule (Nominalizarea se face în timp de 15 zile), should be on hold until 12 February. Stryn (talk) 14:09, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
Actually 12 February, 22:27 (UTC), to be more precise. Then, and only then, would have passed the recommended 15 days. Wintereu 13:38, 5 February 2017 (UTC)


Gmentis (talk) 14:51, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

On hold until 3 February (first revision of the request). --MF-W 15:15, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
There is a local bureaucrat who is somewhat active. Have you asked him to grant you adminship? MBisanz talk 23:06, 3 February 2017 (UTC)


I want to be an administrator on the SiSwati Wikipedia. I want to have have access to protected pages such as the landing page so that I can organize, clean and rename some of the items since SiSwati is my mother tongue and I have been contributing to this wiki for some time now. Bobbyshabangu (talk) 02:28, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

Please make a local request to allow for possible community input. Savhñ 10:05, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
We now have a request at ss:Wikipedia:Likhefi_leinthanethi#Administrator. On hold until 9 February, I guess? ;-) --MF-W 14:05, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
Agreed; on hold until February 9. MBisanz talk 13:15, 3 February 2017 (UTC)


Hello, did you make a local request? --MF-W 14:07, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
Please give me a link. Slav4 (talk) 10:32, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
@Naulagmi: please start a local request first. Stryn (talk) 14:11, 4 February 2017 (UTC)


User of Classical Chinese Wikipedia. Being nominated and accepted the nomination. Has 4 votes. All in favor.----損齋 (talk) 23:05, 3 February 2017 (UTC)


User of Classical Chinese Wikipedia. Being nominated and accepted the nomination. Has 5 votes. All in favor.----損齋 (talk) 23:06, 3 February 2017 (UTC)


Filing here per request on my talk page; user does not sufficiently understand the interface here to use this page. – Ajraddatz (talk) 00:39, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

Also noting that I have some concerns with the request, including a) obvious canvassing, b) an apparent unfamiliarity with the mediawiki interface, and c) the current block on the candidate's homewiki. I don't have time to look into this much, but I wanted to list these concerns even if they may be insignificant to the ultimate granting of the permissions. – Ajraddatz (talk) 00:58, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

See bureaucrat for information about this user group.
  • In principle, requests for temporary bureaucrat access are not granted.
  • A small project does not need bureaucrats. Currently whether a promotion is valid or not is decided by stewards. See here for a guideline.

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

CheckUser access

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.

Oversight access

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.

  • When a new user is assigned to this group, please add them to this list.

Removal of access

  • 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.


Yes check.svg Done Ruslik (talk) 20:28, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: There is no mistake, the local policy says: At least 15 user must to vote not support, and User:علاء get 92% and 18 user vote in his requests, please promote him to bureaucrat, Thank you.جار الله (talk) 04:44, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
i agree with جارالله the local policy :At least 15 user must to vote not support, and User:علاء get 92% and 18 user vote in his requests. So there is no mistake. --مصعب (talk) 07:10, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
As there are many local bureaucrats, we cannot reverse the removal. It should be locally regranted, if you decide so. --MF-W 14:11, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
the discussion here just to emphasize that you must make sure before remove the permissions from users as long as there is no link shows the consensus of the community at the decision. --بدارين (talk) 22:49, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
I'm not sure why Ibrahim rushed and asked for the removal of the flag, although our local policy is clear. And I wonder why didn't he discuss this at ar wiki first before filing a request here immediately. My decision in 100% correct and I have recently opened a new discussion about this at ar. Wiki, since I always prefer to talk any of our topics there first. --بدارين (talk) 09:15, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

After discussion amongst arwiki local bureaucrats, it was decided to overturn this request and regrant Alaa (علاء) the flag. Alaa is now bureaucrat again on Arabic Wikipedia. --Meno25 (talk) 06:20, 3 February 2017 (UTC)


On hold for 24 hours per standard policy. Matanya (talk) 12:00, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done, thanks for your work as a bureaucrat. --Stryn (talk) 12:58, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

User Helios@itwiki

Please removes sysop flag as per votation. --Buggia 12:52, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

@Buggia:: I understand the Italian Wikipedia policy to require 2/3 support for reappointment, excluding abstentions. Helios had 67.6% supporting reappointment. Why would that not satisfy the 2/3 support policy? MBisanz talk 13:21, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
Because it is also required a quorum of 47 positive votes. Helios got 46. --НУРшЯGIO(beware of the moose) 13:53, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
Quoting the policy: "The sysop is confirmed if, after voting, the number of positive votes meets the quorum and it is also greater than or equal to 2/3 of the votes cast, excluding abstentions". The quorum was 47 and Helios received 46 positive votes. Thanks. --Lucas (talk) 06:42, 4 February 2017 (UTC) ps: I forgot the ping. --Lucas (talk) 06:46, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
Are there other issues about this request? --Buggia 16:26, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

User Xevi@cawiki

I request to remove sysop flag. One month after notification, user has not replied: ca:Usuari Discussió:Xevi#Baixa per inactivitat. Our policy: ca:Viquipèdia:Baixa per inactivitat d'administradors (one year of inactivity) as listed here. Paucabot (talk) 20:21, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done/hecho/fet, best regards; —MarcoAurelio 20:44, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! Paucabot (talk) 03:29, 4 February 2017 (UTC)


This user has no actions since 3 months ago. Please remove sysop rights from this user as per local-inactivity policy. Thanks --rxy (talk) 09:37, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

Removed. Thanks for their services within the Wikimedia community. RadiX 21:39, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

Miscellaneous requests

Requests for permissions that don't fit in other sections belong here. Importer rights can be granted on most wikis by stewards only. Please gain local community consensus before posting a new section here.

Note that the following types of permissions requests belong on separate pages:

  • SRB — Local or global bot status
  • SRGP — Global permissions

Flominator@dewiki (Import)

11 pro votes (one from DerHexer) and no cons. Thanks in advance, Flominator (talk) 18:32, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

Confirmed. —DerHexer (Talk) 18:49, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
What is the reason that this permission is required, and for what duration do you need it? – Ajraddatz (talk) 19:02, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: Too few people having it, too slow processing of import requests, would like to have it for good. --Flominator (talk) 19:16, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. Importer flag added. – Ajraddatz (talk) 19:18, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
