<translate>

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>

<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

Using this page

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

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

<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

Igriks@vep.wikipedia

Hello. This Wiki opened some days ago, but it has no administrators. I think stewards, who read it, can give admin flag for user Igriks. He speaks Vepsian as native, and he has knowledge of Wikimedia rules. Thank you--Tamara Ustinova 15:11, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Please have the user to post a request for adminship in vep:Vikipedii:Kund. We will review the consensus after a week and if so promote the user. Thanks for your understanding. Best regards. —Marco Aurelio (Nihil Prius Fide) 16:30, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Mmistmurt@kabwikipedia

Good morning. I would like to become an administrator of Wikipedia Kabyle (kab.wikipedia.org). In this language there is only one administrator and his last activity was in 2008. Needless to say that he has disappeared from the scene. Wanting to update this Wikipedia, I would like to become one of the administrators but I do not know where to go. Could you please help me? Mmistmurt 14:04, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Please, start a local discussion first. --Mercy 14:26, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
Hi, I have started a discussion but there is not much active users. I want to revive this wikipedia but the tools available are obsolete since not updated since 2008--Mmistmurt 14:59, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Done Granted for 3 months to expire on 2012-05-20. To prolong your (interface) adminship, please start another election a few days before your temporary access expires, and after a week post your request again to this page. Thanks. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:24, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Amqui@iu.wikipedia

Good day, I'm requesting temporary admin on iu.wiki in order to do some maintenance including deleting a lot of pages because of pages' moving and editing protected pages. There is two bureaucrats/admins on iu.wiki, but both are inactive since 2006 and one of them specifically says on his user page that he's not admin ([1]). I already made several requests on the irc channel for global admin only for minor actions and both of the global admin and myself loose time in this process. I'm monitoring this wiki for vandalism almost on a daily basis. I'm already temporary admin on cr.wiki for the same purposes. I founded the Canadian Aboriginal Languages Wikipedia Coordination for the coordination and the monitoring of those small aboriginal wikis. My contributions on iu.wiki. Amqui 03:05, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Done Granted for 6 months to expire on 2012-08-15. To prolong your (interface) adminship, please start another election a few days before your temporary access expires, and after a week post your request again to this page. Thanks. -- Avi 04:32, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

That was quick, thanks you. Amqui 04:40, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

seb_az86556@rmy.project

In order for this to be implemented as accepted by SPQRobin, somebody needs a temporary sysop-flag. Since I'm the one who made the proposal, I'm willing to volunteer. 1 day should do. Thanks. Seb az86556 (talk) 02:56, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Done Granted to expire on 2012-02-19. -- Avi (talk) 03:24, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Frglz@eo.wikisource

Hello. I'd like to request administrator status for eo.wikisource, because I am currently its only active editor (although someone did come and do a few edits today), and I need it for some tasks like deleting obsolete redirects/pages, editing common.js, and editing the main page. Thank you. Frglz (talk) 02:06, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

Steward requests/Permissions/Crat-header

CheckUser access

Steward requests/Permissions/CU-header

Jagro@cs.wikipedia

Jagro has enough community support to be given checkuser access (pre-agreed threshold of at least 25 support votes and at least 4:1 support:oppose ratio has been reached). Tchoř 01:28, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

  • Time2wait.svg On hold Until identified to the foundation. -- Avi 04:34, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
  • I confirmed my identity via e-mail. — Jagro 13:44, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. -- Mentifisto 14:19, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Postrach@cs.wikipedia

Postrach has enough community support to be given checkuser access (pre-agreed threshold of at least 25 support votes and at least 4:1 support:oppose ratio has been reached). Tchoř 01:28, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

  • Time2wait.svg On hold Until identified to the foundation. -- Avi 04:35, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Oversight access

To request to have content oversighted, ask in #wikimedia-stewards, or email oversight-l(at)lists.wikimedia.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.

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

<translate>

  • 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>

Several@cywiki

This user has been inactive for 3 years now according to his last contribution page. His sysop flag have to be removed. Diolch. Thanks, Llywelyn2000 08:31, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done this removal after reviewing your local discussion.--Jusjih 09:33, 15 February 2012 (UTC)


This user has been inactive for 3 years now (since December 2008) according to his last contribution page. His sysop and Bureaucrat flags have to be removed. Diolch. Thanks, Llywelyn2000 08:31, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done removing both inactive flags.--Jusjih 09:43, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

several@is.wikipedia

The Icelandic Wikipedia has an inactivity policy for it´s admins and bureaucrats. Admins and bureaucrats who have not made any edits for one year are notified on their talk pages. If they don´t respond within one month or don´t express any interest in keeping their rights, they will lose them.

All of the users mentioned above where notified on their talk pages at 16th January 2012. StalfurPDA is an known alternative account of is:user:Stalfur, so I notified Stalfur instead. Stalfur is the only user that responded and he agreed with removing StalfurPDA´s rights. Since one month has passed from the notifacation, I am requesting removal of both their admin and bureaucrat rights.--Snaevar (talk) 11:13, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done I just removed the bureaucrat and sysop status of the four users. Cordially, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 11:20, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

CarolAnnO@fr.wiki

I gave her the sysop rights temporarily, without a RfA, so that she could have the account creator right for a teaching session. Seems it wasn't necessary, but anyway, it's been a fortnight and that's the time limit we agreed on. Thanks, --Esprit Fugace (talk) 08:21, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Matanya (talk) 08:24, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Reza1615@fa.wikibooks

Reza1615 was granted a temporary three-month administrator flag on the Persian Wikibooks. His term of adminship was supposed to expire on 1 January 2012 but he still holds the flag. Please remove it. Thanks. --Americophile 20:18, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Please thank him for the work he has done here. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 20:21, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
