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 information policy/Noticeboard</>|formally confirmed]] by the Office. </translate>


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

==== user name@xxproject ====
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    =
 |user name =

Administrator access

See administrator for information about the position. Requests for removal of access belong in another section. Admins doing cross-wiki work may wish to see IRC/wikimedia-admin for information about joining #wikimedia-admin.

If you are requesting administrator status to translate the wiki interface, this should be done at the BetaWiki project instead (see mw:localisation). You can ask questions in the IRC channel or on the mailing list.

If you are requesting adminship to handle one-time vandalism incidents or clearing a deletion backlog, please see Vandalism reports and Steward requests/Speedy deletions.

Currently-active temporary permissions are listed at /Approved temporary; copy granted requests to the appropriate section there, stating the date of removal in the section header and at the bottom of the request. Please invite new sysops to the admin IRC channel.
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. Users who archive requests on that page, please check if the request was correctly added to the temporary subpage before removing it from this page.

For permanent sysopship please provide a link to the local community approval. For temporary sysopship please state for how long and for which tasks you need it, and link to a local announcement.


(I would like to become the Administrator in Wikisource Persian. I am working a lot on law in Iran, constitutions, and other legal documents. As there are no administrators, there are no welcome, no user aid, etc., there are unfinished articles which need either to be deleted or completed.) Bellavista1957 16:15, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

I see one inactive bureaucrat and a few administrator. Please make a local request and ask that bureaucrat to respond before any steward steps in. Thanks.--Jusjih 20:04, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
I can not identify in Wikisource any manager or any name that I can contact. Hope you have not mixed it with Wikipedia Farsi. I can see the name of Mardetanha as Steward who does not reply. Thank you --Bellavista1957 08:28, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Hello, as Jusjih said, there are some administrators and a bureaucrat in the project. Please see s:fa:Special:ListUsers/sysop for a list of administrators and s:fa:Special:ListUsers/bureaucrat for a list of bureaucrats (in this case, only one). Best regards, --Dferg 09:07, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

I have filed a local request - Thank you --Bellavista1957 09:49, 3 May 2010 (UTC) I received a reply to my request for becoming Admin not from Kaveh the Admin of Wikisource but from Pedram.salehpoor . He wrote me that he will delete articles that I request to be deleted. Very strange!! how can he delete articles in Wikisource . He did not answer to my wish to become Admin in Wikisource. Could you please check this matter, . Thank you for your help. I wrote again in Kaveh page that I would like to become Admin and that he has to answer to my request.--Bellavista1957 07:38, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Following is what I wrote to him: Where is the problem, I have requested to become Admin in Wikisource Farsi. Could you please answer to my request , I would like to become Admin in Wikisource--Bellavista1957 ‏۴ مهٔ ۲۰۱۰، ساعت ۰۷:۳۵ (UTC) --Bellavista1957 10:54, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Bellavista, Pedram is a sysop in fa.wikisource. Could you please explain why you are blocked in fawiki? I would like to see you unblocked first, before we proceed with an RfA. Also, Please add the link to the local discussion in the space above. Thanks! --Jyothis 11:48, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

I have also explained it to Mardetanha and asked for help from him and another Admin: Dear Colleague: This is the second time I ask for your help. I am Bellavista1957 , the author of Iranian Cultural Foundation, since days some people like Shirvanloo, Irani 444, Mehdi Abbasi, insult me, delete parts of the text, name of Farah Pahlavi, change the citations, change the source of the text, delete specially sentences cited from the constitution of the Foundation, like Persian language is a heritage of Perisan culture , change dictate of words or the word itself from Farsi to Arabic. HAMAN, one of the managers, I sked to block the page Iranian Cultural Foundation against vandalism. He did that and wrote in the discussion page of the Foundation, that there is no problem with my writings.

Despite protection of page and explanations of Haman, two users changed and deleted parts of this short article again and again. I wrote to HAMAN and asked for help again and complete protection of the page, in between Mehdi Abbasi who also deleted parts of the text, wrote Hay Donkey Stop!! . I protested against. I started to discuss with the users who made the changes, to find a compromise in the discussion page of the Iranian Cultural Foundation . But in the middle of discussion , Admin Mani cut my complete access to Wikipedia for two weeks.

there is a long list of complaints against Mani by authors.--Bellavista1957 15:13, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

This request should be marked as undone , since there is very small community , also we have at least two admins who keep eye on the project me and pedram . also we have inactive crat which with email you can reach him . so there is no to stewards to step in . Regards --Mardetanha talk 16:34, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

For your Information Jyothis: I just received a mail from this salehpoor who created just a page for me and found out that I am working in Wikisource. The first words of his were threat to delete all my articles. Is this the process that someone wants to become Administratot to improve the quality of Wikisource Farsi and ultimately Wikipedia Farsi? I write here because I need your help. please help that my work of three months day and night not to be deleted, you see now they are active to cut the discussion with international stewards please stay with us and do not leave us alone with this troop, --Bellavista1957 16:39, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Bellavista, please email the 'crat as Mardatehna has mentioned above. I will mark it as on hold, allowing you time to go back and request 'crat for the same. In any case you need a week of a local Rfa/Announcement and support for the request to be considered here. However, please note that it is quite unlikely to pass if you dont have support from other active users there. --Jyothis 18:48, 4 May 2010 (UTC)


(I would like to become an administrator of Bislama Wikipedia. I can speak intermediate Bislama so I can help with translation of the interface of Wikipedia into this beautiful language. I can help with translation of many articles from another language editions of Wikipedia into Bislama too. That's the link to local discussion about me in biwiki.) --Ţħėőďŏŗǽ 15:03, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

You would not need admin access to translate, since translations are done in Translatewiki. Since you started the discussion, we would need atleast a week's time to run the poll. mean while, Please create a better main page like other wikis. It may also be a good idea to create policies, guidelines and help pages for the project. Since the community is small, you may have a better luck with temp adminship. --Jyothis 15:28, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

See bureaucrat for information about the position. In principle, requests for temporary bureaucrat access are not granted.
General note
There is an ongoing discussion regarding the minimum number of votes and overall participation to promote users to bureaucrat at Talk:Bureaucrat#Minimum_number_of_votes. Users are encouraged to assist in the development of a policy that allows stewards to not decide on whether a promotion is valid or not. Thank you.

CheckUser access

To request CheckUser information, see Meta:Requests for CheckUser information. This is the place to request CheckUser access. Note that temporary CheckUser access is not permitted and the temporary status is only used by Stewards.

When someone asks for CheckUser status, please check the current policy before giving the status. There is an email template to request identification from the new CU. Do not grant CU access unless the user is identified to the Foundation. 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(at)lists.wikimedia.org so the listadmins know the person is allowed on the mailing list, and make sure they contact an op for access to #wikimedia-checkuser.


Please give commons:User:Herbythyme CheckUser permissions per commons:Commons:Administrators' noticeboard#Return to CU rights query. --EugeneZelenko 15:31, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done --Melos 15:48, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Thanks & used :) --Herby talk thyme 16:07, 9 May 2010 (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.

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 status, make sure you're logged in to a global 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; the rights will not be restored by stewards once they are removed.

To request the removal of another user's status, you must gain consensus on the local wiki first. All discussion must take place 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 brief explanation of the reason for the request, and summarize the results of discussion. In either case, copy and paste the following text into the correct section (see instructions above). Please post requests at the bottom of the section.

Miscellaneous requests

Requests that don't fit in other sections belong here. Import rights can be granted by stewards only, not bureaucrats, so the automatic list of local bureaucrats is irrelevant for this. Please gather community consensus before placing a link to the discussion here.

Note that the following types of requests belong on separate pages:
