<translate> Requests and proposals</translate> Steward requests (Permissions) <translate> latest archive</translate>
This page enables stewards to handle permissions requests, including the giving and taking of administrator, bureaucrat, checkuser, and oversight rights, for all Wikimedia wikis which do not have a local permissions procedure. 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 (see the index of request pages). Requests for bot status, URL blacklisting and whitelisting, and CheckUser queries belong elsewhere.

Interface-translations are done at Betawiki.

For urgent requests, such as to combat large-scale vandalism on a small wiki, contact a steward in the #wikimedia-stewardsconnect IRC channel (see a web-based IRC client). In emergencies only, type !steward in the channel to inform stewards that you need help.

Please only make requests here after gaining the on-wiki approval of your local community.

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

Using this page

When requesting permissions, copy and paste the following text into the correct section. Please fill in all the required fields -- language code, link to the local request (or other means of confirming that the request has approval), and link to your local user page. Without this information, a steward cannot process your request.

Please summarize your request in the "summary".

*'''Local Request Link:''' [[:xx:Project:wiki]]
*'''Automatic List of local bureaucrats:''' [[:xx:Project:Special:Listusers/bureaucrat]]
*'''Local User Page:''' [[xx:User:Example]]

Thank you. ~~~~

The project names are coded as follows:

  • Enter "wiki" for Wikipedia after the language code.
  • Enter "wiktionary" for Wiktionary after the language code.
  • Enter "wikibooks" for Wikibooks after the language code.
  • Enter "wikinews" for Wikinews after the language code.
  • Enter "wikiquote" for Wikiquote after the language code.
  • Enter "wikisource" for Wikisource after the language code, but enter "sourceswiki" for the Multilingual Wikisource without a language code.
  • Enter "wikiversity" for Wikiversity after the language code.
  • Enter "commonswiki" for Wikimedia Commons without a language code.
  • Enter "specieswiki" for Wikispecies without a language code.

Confirmation of identity

Certain permissions (notably CheckUser and Oversight) additionally require users to confirm their identity. Users requesting these permissions must make a request below, and must also submit the relevant identification to the Foundation. The request is placed on hold temporarily, until receipt has been formally confirmed by the office.

Instructions for how you can confirm your identity can be found at: Steward handbook/email templates.

For stewards: Identification noticeboard.

Requests

Administrator access

See administrator for information about the position. Requests for temporary permissions and removal of access belong in other sections.

f.noceti@lijwiki

Status:    In progress

I request sysop access.

Thank you. 79.7.85.61 20:44, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Please link to the election page. --Thogo (talk) 20:46, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Checked out. There isn't any election/request page--Nick1915 - all you want 21:24, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
  • I want you tell me what exactly I've to do. I only want to take the ligurian project and try to give to it a dignity. Now it hasn't an uniform writing, I intend to change all pages with the official writing explained on www.zeneize.net . If someone can tell to me what I've exactly to do I'll do it. If there is someone that tell me in italian I'll understand better, otherwise in english i better than nothing. Thank you very much. --87.14.126.56 10:39, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Many thanks to Thogo. I ask you to tell me for any other possible mistake. --87.14.126.56 10:44, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
I see you have a vote going now... wait for that to come to a conclusion. In any case I suggest you register an account here at Meta, crosslink it to another wiki where you have some significant contributions. However adminship does not give you license to change content unilaterally, only to fight vandalism and the like. To effect changes, make proposals for changes or improvements on that wiki and gain consensus from the local community... it looks like there is a local community. ++Lar: t/c 20:25, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

Better@extwiki

I request sysop access to the new wikipedia in extremaduran. I've been sysop until now at the proyect in incubator.

Thanks! Better 20:03, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done --Thogo (talk) 14:26, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Pateraggelos@extwiki

Pateraggelos requested sysop access to the new wikipedia in extremaduran too, and he was approved.

I hope i can request his sysop access for him. Thank you! Better 20:03, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done --Thogo (talk) 14:27, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Marine-Blue@jawikiversity

I request sysop access.

Same reason of Kanjy@jawikiversity. Thank you. Marine-Blue [ talk contribs ] 04:32, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done--Nick1915 - all you want 09:37, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

User:Genppy and User:Tmnk @ ja.wikiversity

Please grant custodianship to these two users.

We have elected four users as initial custodians, two (User:Marine-Blue and I) have been already granted (many thanks!), and now I am asking for the rest two, as well as for User:Marine-Blue in the previous section. Thank you. --Kanjy 14:17, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done --Thogo (talk) 14:29, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
winkThanks! a lot! We will keep our project running. --Kanjy 14:35, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

See bureaucrat for information about the position.

Vpovilaitis@lt wiktionary

I request bureaucrat access.

Thank you. Vpovilaitis apt. 04:42, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done as there are too few votes, indicating a rather small community that probably doesn't need a bureaucrat. --FiLiP ¤ 07:39, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
But smaller cominities have bureaucrats.--Ahonc 14:15, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

CheckUser access

To request CheckUser information, see Request for CheckUser information. This is the place to request CheckUser access. Note that temporary CheckUser access is not permitted.

Stewards: When someone asks for CheckUser status, please check the current policy regarding bestowal of status before giving the status. Do not grant CheckUser access unless the user is identified to the foundation, which will be announced here. Breaching these rules may be cause for removing your steward access. When you give someone CheckUser, please list them on CheckUser, ask them to subscribe to checkuser-l, email checkuser-l-owner@wikipedia.org so that the listadmins know the person is allowed on the mailing list (the list may contain confidential information), and make sure they contact an op for access to #wikimedia-checkuser.


Oversight access

Do not initiate an oversight request here. The Arbitration Committee will make the request once there is consensus on the local wiki (this process is currently for en-Wikipedia only).

Stewards: Do not grant Oversight access unless the user is identified to the foundation, which will be announced here. When you give someone oversight access, list them on Hiding revisions.

Removal of access

If you want to request that your own status be removed, please don't forget to place a note on your local user talk page (preferably with an English translation). This is required to prove your identity. And then add the request here. You should add the difflink of your local confirmation edit to the request.

To request the removal of another user's status, you must gain consensus on the local wiki first. All discussion must be kept on your local wiki. When there is community consensus that the user's access should be removed, a trusted person from that wiki should provide a link here to the discussion, a very brief explanation of the reason for the request, and summarize the results of discussion.

Copy and paste the following text into the correct section. Fill in all the required fields -- language code, link to the local request, and link to your local user page. Without this information, a steward cannot process your request.

==== Username@language-code project-name ====
I request removal of access.
*'''Language Code:''' xx
*'''Local Confirmation/Request Link:''' <!--Difflink of the local confirmation edit (for own requests), or link to the community decision-->
*'''Local User Page:''' [[xx:User:Example]]

Thank you. ~~~~

Please summarize your request in the "summary".

Temporary permissions for emergency or technical purposes

If you are requesting administrator status to make a translation of the wiki interface, see also the BetaWiki project, which seeks to make a neutral MediaWiki translation that will then be default for all wikis. That is more useful than only making a local translation. You can ask questions in the IRC channel or in the mailing list. See also MediaWiki localisation. If you are requesting adminship to handle one-time vandalism incidents or clearing a deletion backlog, please see Vandalism reports and Multilingual speedy deletions.

Stewards: Currently active temporary permissions are listed at /Approved temporary. When granting a request, please copy the request to the appropriate section there, and clearly state the date of removal. Requests only need remain listed below for a few days, and may afterward be removed as long as they have been copied to the subpage.

Copy and paste the following text into the correct section. Fill in all the required fields -- language code, link to the list of sysops and bureaucrats, local request link, link to your local user page, and the preferred duration with a reason. Without this information, a steward cannot process your request.

Miscellaneous requests

Requests that don't fit in other sections belong here. Note that the following types of requests belong on separate pages: bot status, URL blacklisting and whitelisting, and requests for CheckUser queries. If you want to have your Meta username changed, please go to Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat. If you want to have changed a username on a Wikimedia wiki without bureaucrats, please go to Requests for username changes.(Existing requests have been moved to the appropriate page.)
