Requests and proposals Steward requests (<translate>


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. </translate>

<translate> Old sections are archived by a [[<tvar|bot>User:SteinsplitterBot</>|bot]]. Click here for a list of archives.</translate>


  • Requests for bot flags are handled at [[<tvar|srb>SRB</>|SRB]], and requests for [[<tvar|globalg>Special:MyLanguage/Global groups</>|global permissions]] are handled at [[<tvar|srgp>SRGP</>|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 ([[<tvar|irp>WM:IRP#On other wikis</>|index]]).
  • For urgent requests, such as to combat large-scale vandalism on a small wiki, contact a steward in the <tvar
Cross-wiki requests
Meta-Wiki requests


Using this page

1. Place the following code at the bottom of the appropriate section below: </translate>

==== User name@xxproject ====
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    = <!-- such as en.wikibooks -->
 |user name =
(your remarks)</translate> ~~~~

<translate> 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 [[<tvar|nonpublic-data>Special:MyLanguage/Access to nonpublic personal data policy</>|require]] users to sign a [[<tvar|agreement>Special:MyLanguage/Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information</>|confidentiality agreement]]. Users requesting these permissions must make a request below, and must also [[<tvar|stew-handbook>Steward handbook/email templates</>|sign the confidentiality agreement]] with the Wikimedia Foundation. The request is placed on hold temporarily, until the receipt has been [[<tvar|idn>Access to nonpublic personal data policy/Noticeboard</>|formally confirmed]] by the Office. </translate>


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

Administrator access

Steward requests/Permissions/Sysop-header


- I'd like to renew temporary access until the community is grown to vote permanent sysops.--Thuvack (talk) 17:38, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold until 13 October. Trijnsteltalk 21:18, 6 October 2012 (UTC)


Hi. I would like to continue as an administrator on the Malagasy Wikipedia (my adminship will expire in 3 days), and except me, there is no other active administrator on the wiki:

Best regards, Jagwar grrr... 21:36, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold until 13 October 2012, request to continue existing and long held admin rights — billinghurst sDrewth 03:08, 7 October 2012 (UTC)


presently there are no active comunity and no admin. Please renew my adminship. Thanks. Last time you grant me admin access one year.

--Jayantanth (talk) 05:36, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Ensjo@tpn (Old Tupi) INCUBATOR Wikipedia

There's an OPEN test Wikipedia at incubator, but no one is handling it, hence I apply. Ensjo (talk) 13:24, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Please see Administrators page at incubator. You can apply it instead of here :) --Sotiale (talk) 13:29, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
I've done so. Thank you! Ensjo (talk) 15:15, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

Steward requests/Permissions/Crat-header


There's actual no active bureaucrat, thus I request it here. Vogone (talk) 13:38, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Five votes in a crat election seem a bit too few to me. Other comments? Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 21:36, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
I agree with DerHexer. I suggest to ask Sebmol (talk · contribs) here (or email him), which is a local bureaucrat over beta.wikiversity, to fullfill the request there if at all possible. Thank you. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 22:26, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
Agree. There are two 'crats there able to evaluate the proposal, and either request or undertake the desired action. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:51, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Before this request, I already left the message to local crat. I guess that Vogone thought two local crats was completely inactive. I think that closing this request is proper method. Thanks. --Sotiale (talk) 13:11, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Local crat connect [1], Please close this request. Thanks! --Sotiale (talk) 03:02, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Eh... nothing happened. He didn't give admin rights to Shujenchang and crat rights to Crochet.david. Trijnsteltalk 09:56, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Ahh...? It really does. He didn't act anything. What's his problem..? --Sotiale (talk) 10:12, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Hillgentleman is currently active and has processed the other request, this request should also be processed by him under his local 'crat role. Snowolf How can I help? 15:32, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
  • X mark.svg Not done - Can be handled locally. -Barras talk 10:13, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

CheckUser access

Steward requests/Permissions/CU-header


—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rachitrali (talk)

Hi. This link does not show a community consensus in favor of granting you the CheckUser status. Your name is not even mentioned in the discussion you shown. If you wanted to request stewards to perform a checkuser, please go at SRCU. Cordially, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:27, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

Oversight access

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

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.

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 [[<tvar|self-discussion>Talk:Steward_requests/Permissions/2011#Self_requests</>|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 [[<tvar|crat-rem>Bureaucrat#Removing_access</>|separate list of these specific wikis]].
  • See the [[<tvar|usage>#Using this page</>|instructions above]] for adding new requests. Please post new requests at the bottom of the section.</translate>


Because of inactivity. Thanks. --Александр Сигачёв (talk) 09:52, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

Just to confirm: is this the removal of both the sysop and bureaucrat flags? -- Mentifisto 10:00, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
Yes, both. --Александр Сигачёв (talk) 10:01, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
Okay, Yes check.svg Done - thanks for your past work! -- Mentifisto 10:04, 7 October 2012 (UTC)


Inactivity and personal motivation. Thanks --Lusum (talk) 17:51, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Done (also [2]). Thanks for your work.

Miscellaneous requests

Steward requests/Permissions/Misc-header

Editing on wm2010 wiki

Note : This section won't be automatically archived by the bot

Hello, I need to edit some pages (most notably wm2010:Schedule) on Wikimania 2010 wiki. I know it's old but we got some material available it should be linked there. Thank you.  « Saper // talk »  19:57, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

In general, we do not substantially edit closed wikis, and many folks feel strongly that no such editing should take place. If you wish to submit your changes, a steward can look into applying them for you. Otherwise, for you to be able to edit it we'd have to re-open the wiki afaik. Snowolf How can I help? 21:33, 9 September 2012 (UTC)
The other option would be to setup an ad-hoc global group for you to perform these edits, but again I'd like some consensus and some idea of what the changes are going to be and why they have to be implemented. Snowolf How can I help? 21:37, 9 September 2012 (UTC)
Thank you, I have filed bug 40123 for this instead.  « Saper // talk »  22:04, 9 September 2012 (UTC)
So I'll mark this as X mark.svg closed--Bencmq (talk) 13:49, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
Reopening, as the wiki is now unlocked. Can you promote be to bureaucrat+sysop until we can close the wiki again? Thank you in advance!  « Saper // talk »  06:55, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
Granted temporary administrator status (I don't see why you need bureaucrat rights to edit). Please poke us when you have finished so the rights can be removed. This section will remain here until completion of the request. Thanks. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 07:59, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Innocent robot@svwiki

I am applying for botstatus on svwiki. It looks like I cannot do any edits before I am autoconfirmed or confirmed. Can you please, set the confirmed-flag until I am autoconfirmed or the botflag is set? One of these will happen within the next few days. -- Lavallen 10:13, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I've just asked the bureaucrats opinion before doing it, but I don't see any problem if they agree. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:40, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
I have responded and endorsed the request. Njaelkies Lea (talk) 11:02, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Please tell us when to remove the status if you want it to be removed (btw that's not a major issue if the bot keeps it, anyway he will be autoconfirmed in a few days). Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 11:41, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
And I am able to edit, Tack! -- Lavallen 11:42, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
And the botbit has now localy been set. The confirmed-flag can now be removed again, thank you! -- Lavallen 11:16, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
