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>

Administrator access

Steward requests/Permissions/Sysop-header


I ask to give me admin rights. Ӏ think you're must to give me the rights, because onӀy Ӏ am active user in av.wikipedia.org. And because there is only 1 administrator [1] in av.wikipedia.org -- Gazimagomedov (talk) 07:50, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold until until at least 16 July  — billinghurst sDrewth 15:25, 9 July 2014 (UTC)


Because of the decay of my admin flag. --Tn4196 (talk) 20:16, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

You will need to apply to your community to renew your admin rights. So please add a new request to your community, and let us know seven days after that conversation has started so that we can assess.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:10, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

We need an active administrator in hy Wikisource. --Lilitik22 (talk) 05:06, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Done Granted for 6 months to expire on 2015-01-11.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:27, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

Steward requests/Permissions/Crat-header


-- TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 18:09, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Can't be done until the wiki is created and added to the list of local dbs here. On hold. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:12, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
The wiki has been created and we can assign userrights to it. I suspect that you tried with wikimania2015 instead of the correct wikimania2015wiki. I note however that traditionally the initial bureaucrat(s) have been assigned by the developers as part of the creation process of the wiki and not stewards. Anyway, all of this ignored because Jdforrester does not have an account there, and as such we cannot assign rights there. I will poke James and Reedy and figure out what happens from there. Snowolf How can I help? 18:26, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
Nope. On reflection, the error message was "There is no user by the name "Jdforrester@wikimania2015wiki". Check your spelling." which makes sense. Guess I was confusing/not reading the error message. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:31, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
I have consulted with the creating developer and he has assigned the required userrights. I note for future reference that this is traditionally handled by the developers who perform the creation and if this issue arises in the future the developer who created the wiki (in this case Reedy) is the correct person to contact. Snowolf How can I help? 18:36, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
On a side note @Snowolf and Ajraddatz: did either of you have your account auto-created? For me it didn't, and I had to login.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:40, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
I didn't require logging in, it just autocreated automatically. Savhñ 08:57, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

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>


Please remove my administrator access on the test Wikipedia. I never use it. --odder (talk) 17:13, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

(testwiki 'crat hat on)I removed the bit locally with my testwiki 'crat hat, if you ever want it back please shout :) (steward hat on) Locally done by some random guy. Snowolf How can I help? 17:22, 2 July 2014 (UTC)


Tras mencionar el abandono temporal del proyecto, el usuario decide que le revoquen los permisos. --Leitoxx Work • Talk • Mail 23:20, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

As far as I understand, he mentions he is going to ask himself for removal, and does not explicitly ask for someone to request removal for him. I would rather have this requested by him. I doubt it is urgent, or that he can't do it himself. Savhñ 12:53, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done, user is able to contact us as required.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:04, 11 July 2014 (UTC)


To be a bureaucrat or a sysop on eswiki, the local activity requirement is 50 logged actions over the last two years, and this requirement is no longer satisfied by Sasquatch21. Then I request you to remove his sysop and bureaucrat flags, please. Best regards, -- 23:13, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Please have an esWP bureaucrat confirm this request.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:02, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Confirm. Savhñ 15:16, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Please leave a message thanking this user for his work. Best wishes, M/ (talk) 15:19, 11 July 2014 (UTC)


Please remove my sysop rights on Polish Wikipedia. I hereby waive my rights due to virtual inactivity and, more importantly, bleak perspectives of my return in foreseeable future. Stefaniak (talk) 22:21, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold for 24 hours from the original request, per standard practice. --Rschen7754 01:11, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Thank you for your service over the years. Good luck with the future. Savhñ 22:40, 12 July 2014 (UTC)


Reasons for removal
  1. Agreed on the removal of the permission here
  2. Misuse of power , making user sysop without proper community consensus here
  3. Mostly inactive inactive for long period (Please look at Monthly Stats) in newiki.

- Nirmal Dulal (talk) 16:40, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm not sure that we can do anything about this. Has there been a vote to remove his rights? Or, have you asked him to come here and resign? --Rschen7754 18:03, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I asked him to resign here. Then He put his resination here and also told that he'd put it on meta, but later he removed it himself. -Nirmal Dulal (talk) 01:40, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done under those circumstances, you will need to start a community discussion on whether to remove his privileges. Please come back when you have done so. --Rschen7754 01:50, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Here is our community discussion to remove his rights. - Nirmal Dulal (talk) 12:51, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
I love wikipedia and worked for the progress as bcrate and sysop. I am against familism and any type of discrimition. Ne.wikipedia is now dominated by particular family and their relatives. There is no consensus rule to give sysop and bcrat status, i was compelled to give sysop status a female contributor on the basis of her contributon to balance the situation and break the lobbies. I am lone indian sysop and bcrat on that project remaining are from Nepal. I request you to remove all b'crats and reduce the numbers of sysops as it was done on Hindi wiki before.Bhawani (talk) 17:04, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

... every on can see, In NE.wiki, there are b'crats, sysop and other contributor from different places and families. I think community is against his wrong work, So he just want to destroy every thing before he leaves.-Nirmal Dulal (talk) 00:43, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

  • this user was given sysop status on basis votes but now i came to know it is either fake or is run by this user. this useris b'crat all from from Dulal family. They are campaigning against me. i want progress of ne.wikipedia.pl compare 25 thousand stubs (articles) to 15 sysops and 4 bureaucrats. Please remove all bureaucrats and sysops. And there is no need of b'crat within community. I suggest to appoint sysops only for this small project. I am neither leaving nor want to destroy. I will continue to work...Bhawani (talk) 03:31, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
  • This user was given sysop status by User:Bhawani Gautam himself (here) and this user was given sysop status by User:RajeshPandey(here) not by me. As, he blaming me, I never misuse my power anywhere for my personal benefit, any steward can check community voting, this user's and present activity (Please look at Monthly Stats) in newiki and status of administrator, and make a right decision.- Nirmal Dulal (talk) 04:36, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
  • I request to make consensus among the existing editors rather than blaming to each other. Bhawani is a reknowned wikipedian rewarded as Wikimedian of the Year 2011 during Wiki Conference India 2011. He has remarkable contribution to rise of Nepali Wikipedia as well as many other Wikis in Indic Language. I request Bhawani to follow the general rules and practices while assigning powers to the users. And request to Stewards not to remove his bureaucratic right.--Ganesh Paudel (talk) 06:08, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
  • I think we already discuss locally about this matter. - Nirmal Dulal (talk) 06:25, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Enough campaigning, it is improper to do that on this page, your bickering belongs on your own wiki. One of the stewards will review the case, especially as now we have been pointed to the de-admin process. As there is claim and counter-claim, it will take some time for one of us to wade through this. Changing it to Time2wait.svg On hold.  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:05, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
It should probably remain open a few more days, to be sure that everyone has voted. --Rschen7754 17:16, 16 July 2014 (UTC)


Hi. According to the local policies, Kved has not enough administrative actions to be a sysop or a 'crat on eswiki. Requerimment is 50 admin actions on past two years, and he has only one admin action. Please remove his both bureaucrat and administrator flags. --Jmvkrecords (Intra Talk) 03:50, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
