Requests and proposals Steward requests (Permissions) latest archive
Shortcut:
SRP

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.

  • Requests for bot flags are handled at SRB, and requests for global permissions are handled at SRGP.
  • 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:

==== Username@xxproject ====
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    = <!-- such as en.wikibooks -->
 |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 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.

Requests

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

==== User name@xxproject ====
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    =
 |user name =
 |discussion= 
}}

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.

Please start a new discussion about requesting the permission on the local village pump, administrators' noticeboard or a designated page for requesting permissions each time you request or renew adminship.

  • Discussions should be open for seven days. Please request adminship here seven days after discussions started. This page is not the place for any discussions or votes. (For wikis with few active users, it is OK to have no comments.)
  • If you only want adminship for specific tasks, please state for how long and for which tasks you need it. Otherwise stewards will decide whether to assign permanent adminship and the duration of adminship. See Steward requests/Permissions/Minimum voting requirements.

abuluntu@no.wikibooks

The project is still a peaceful place with few active editors. If I'm allowed to continue as a temporary admin I don't mind to remove dust occationally. -- Abuluntu (👨🏼‍💻💬) 12:22, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I do not see where you started a new discussion? Ruslik (talk) 14:03, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
It’s probably because there is no response, and I opened it weeks ago. The links above are correct. -- Abuluntu (👨🏼‍💻💬) 15:56, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
It seems like it opened up in January of this year and that your high traffic notification is from July. Is this correct? -- Amanda (aka DQ) 17:47, 16 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
In part. permalink to the nomination I made in august 21. It’s probably an issue with the ancient template used for nominations, so I'd better look into it. I have opened the discussion early to enable active contributors to support my application for permanent adminship. At the moment there is not enough contributors to vote above the limit of 5. -- Abuluntu (👨🏼‍💻💬) 13:08, 18 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
While I understand that, the time since then has allowed the chance for others to have become active. That permission request would have ended the 28th August and we are now almost the end of October. I'm thinking this needs a new 7 day discussion with a post to the high traffic area and then we can proceed. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 15:58, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
OK. My adminship will end on the 27th. So I'll post one immidiately -- Abuluntu (👨🏼‍💻💬) 17:29, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Ruslik0 and AmandaNP:high traffic notification, discussion. -- Abuluntu (👨🏼‍💻💬) 06:56, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

WAN233@zh-classical.wikipedia

I nominate myself for adminship and interface-adminship and I have got the support of the community.--WAN233 (talk) 23:05, 17 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

On hold pending discussion with other stewards. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 23:14, 17 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Wolverène@biwikipedia

Hello. Please provide me temporary administrator rights on the Bislama Wikipedia. I'm ready to be one who works against the vandalism/spam/nonsense pages. More info is in the local discussion (see above). Thank you in advance. --Wolverène (talk) 14:08, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Rpel@dz.wikipedia

I endorse RPel as an admin for Dzongkha Wikipedia. I have known RPel, a native Dzongkha speaking IT graduate, who has been working in the field of Dzongkha language computing and computer security, for over 10 years. CFynn (talk) 07:55, 23 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Please, supply a link to a local discussion. Ruslik (talk) 20:48, 24 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Ralffralff@bcl.wikipedia

Good Day!

I would like to apply for the renewal of my administrator access in Bikol Wikipedia. As an administrator, I formalized my vision for Bikol Wikipedia through the WikiProyekto project which I believe had contributed significant impact to the local community. As a result, diversity on the featured topics is now more evident from the field of science to the arts.

As an editor, I am active in the creation of new Articles especially these past few months. Aside from the Articles, I am also active creating Non-articles like Redirects, Templates, and Talk pages. I also initiated the publishing and design of Portal pages in Bikol Wikipedia which were connected to the Main Page. I also actively participated to various projects and edit-a-thons organized by other editors from the Bikol community.

With regards to special administrator actions, I have done multiple blocking of user accounts or IP addresses which tries to contribute unwanted information to the local wikipedia. Deletion of articles through spam were also done whenever opportunity comes.

If ever granted the administrator access again: (1) I will ensure the balance which were currently observed in the continuous increase of the Number of articles and Depth of Bikol Wikipedia (2) I can help the current administrators again in monitoring of edits (3) I will create more WikiProjects to promote diversity of featured topics in Bikol Wikipedia.

Thank you!

Interface administrator access

See Interface admin for information about this user group.

  • If you are requesting adminship and the interface admin at the same time, you can file one request in administrator section and state you want interface adminship as well.
  • MediaWiki interface translations are done at translatewiki.net. Please do not request interface administrator access solely for that purpose; your request will be declined.
  • Since the end of 2018, all interface administrators are required to have two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled. Please, enable it before posting your request here.

  • Stewards: Please use {{Systmp}} for approved temporary requests.

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

Please start a new discussion about requesting the permission on the local village pump, administrators' noticeboard or a designated page for requesting permissions each time you request or renew interface adminship.

  • Discussions should be open for seven days. Please request interface adminship here seven days after discussions started. This page is not the place for any discussions or votes. (For wikis with few active users, it is OK to have no comments.)
  • If you only want interface adminship for specific tasks, please state for how long and for which tasks you need it. Otherwise stewards will decide whether to assign permanent interface adminship and the duration of interface adminship. See Steward requests/Permissions/Minimum voting requirements.

कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया@hi.wiktionary

हिन्दी विक्षनरी पर टेम्पररी तौर पर एक सप्ताह के लिए इंटरफ़ेस एडमिन के लिए निवेदन कर रहा हूं। यहां पर कई सारे मीडियाविकि और ट्विंकल से सम्बंधित गैजेट्स हैं जिन्हें सुधार और अपडेट करने की आवश्यकता है। धन्यवाद!-- कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया (talk) 16:02, 18 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Everything looks fine, except: Please enable Help:2FA before we can grant it. System reports you do not have one, and without one Interface-admin cannot be granted. — regards, Revi 21:30, 25 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
जी, धन्यवाद! मैंने Two-factor authentication सक्रिय कर लिया हूं। कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया (talk) 07:33, 26 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
2FA is now okay. However, while reviewing it, I first stumbled upon [1], which has serious objections to int. admin status previously stated by @1997kB. Even though there are only supports now, I'm unsure whether granting is the correct action here. Martin Urbanec (talk) 11:58, 26 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hi, yeah I opposed their previous nomination for variety of reasons; I requested them to show relevant experience in managing Gadget space but all I got were links to random pages in MediaWiki namespaces, and one was just Global Twinkle updating itself in their js subpage, which suggested they have no clue about interface admin bit. This notion of competency also got confirmed when I looked at their block log and they blocked an IP indefinitely. In their response all I got is it's because indef IP blocks are being done on meta (I don't know where) so they done it there too. And apart from the incompetency, incivility is what you see in their response. Since I'm already too much involved I didn't find it constructive to ask them again about which tool they going to update or add, and that is still not clear in their nomination. And I also see some sort of canvassing going on here. Out of nowhere two people after your response voted who aren't active on wiki and their response below is just "If you think I'm wrong don't give me the right" without any sort of explanation of their behavior on last nomination. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 03:14, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
नमस्ते! सर, यदि आपको अभी भी लगता हैं कि मैं ही ग़लत हूं तो बिल्कुल ना दे। लेकिन आपसे एक अनुरोध हैं कृपया आप हिन्दी विक्षनरी को अधतन जरूर कर दें। धन्यवाद! कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया (talk) 19:15, 26 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Time2wait.svg On hold for discussion among the stewards. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 08:07, 28 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

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.

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

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, provide a link to the discussion, with 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.
  • To request the removal of another user's permissions for inactivity, link to your local inactivity policy. If your site does not have inactivity policy, the global policy Admin activity review applies.
  • See the instructions above for adding new requests. Please post new requests at the bottom of the section.

Two days of opinions on removal of someone's Administrator bit, seems extremely low to the normal 7 days. Could you explain if there is a local policy overriding the 7 days? -- Amanda (aka DQ) 15:52, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@AmandaNP: There is none. However, a much longer discussion was taken upon removal of editor rights and the desicion was to remove. I believe 1) that the arguments given there are also relevant for sysop removal discussion, and 2) it's natural that the removal of the editor rights should also imply removal of the sysop rights (because, actually, sysops are granting editor rights). If you think that this is inappropriate I can reopen the discussion, of course. Artem Korzhimanov (talk) 06:57, 21 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • Seven days have passed, and we are really looking forward to the removal of admin access from this user. --Soul Train (talk) 19:47, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Chuck SMITH@eowiki

Inactive administrator should be dismissed without discussion according to rules of Esperanto Wikipedia. --Fenikals (talk) 11:36, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Can you please link to the policy? -- Amanda (aka DQ) 15:54, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@AmandaNP: for your information AAR and also chapitre 3 of local policy. But local policy says that if an admin didn't contribute more than 1 year, they can be automatically removed. But for this, it requests a notification on the village pump and on the user's talk page. But I couldn't see such a notification except DidiWeidman on village pump, user's talk page. The local community can better assist the stewards in this topic. --Uncitoyentalk 07:36, 21 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
We do AAR once a year, so until then let's proceed according to the local policy. Fenikals, could you leave notices on the user's talk page and at the village pump as per the policy, please? --Base (talk) 15:12, 21 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Base: It needs anything to remove DidiWeidman's admin and crat rights? --Uncitoyentalk 16:00, 21 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
We (the Stewards) process AAR in a batch (around each January), for efficiency reasons. And then AAR still requires notifications. We do not remove people's permission without notification. — regards, Revi 21:25, 25 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Krassotkin@ruwikimedia

As WMF Global banned, no idea why their translationadmin and IPBE retains. Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 04:13, 28 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

(non-steward comment) Apparently they have an active bureaucrat and tons of admins so the request doesn't go here. --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 04:19, 28 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
OK, let's ask @Drbug: if they can handle locally or not. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 04:21, 28 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ok, thanks, removed. Dr Bug (Vladimir V. Medeyko) 14:36, 28 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I removed IPBE flag from him. But translationadmin access can be removed only by bureaucrat (I'll ask Vladimir to do this). — Soul Train (talk) 09:38, 28 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
