<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".

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.

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.

Numulunjpiljgae@mdf Moksha Wikipedia

Status:    Done

I request sysop access.

—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Numulunj pilgae (talk) diff

Hello, I can't see a voting there, as it seems the community is too small for a regular voting I suggest You apply for temporary adminship, it is technically the same. Thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:35, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
Moved and processed at the temporary section. --FiliP × 09:46, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Filipinayzd for Wp-bcl

Moved from RFA page. Majorly talk 21:15, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

I would like to be an admin of Wp-bcl. Thanks. --Filipinayzd 21:03, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Well, and would you mind placing your request on the right page?
--M/ 21:04, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
Moved. Majorly talk 21:16, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
There needs to be a community consensus of some sort for this (preferably voting). Is there such a page on wiki? If not, you may want to request temporary status instead. --FiliP × 12:53, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

See bureaucrat for information about the position.

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".


Stianh@no.wikipedia

The community has decided that Stianh is to lose his admin rights due to inactivity.

Thank you. Kjetil r 12:17, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

Not sure if nine votes are sufficient for a deadmin. This is way belove our current limit for adminship. I think this needs considerations on the project as there are implicitt changes of the present policy in the discussion about this deadmin process. Jeblad 12:54, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
I'm inclined to X mark.svg Not done this. Reach a consensus on-wiki and only then come here. Thanks. --FiliP × 19:58, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
The internal discussion was about two things at the same time, if the admin should loose his sysop status due to inactivity and if such actions could be undone without further notice. As I read the discussion about this I am fairly sure we have consensus for removing the actual users right due to inactivity, but there are no consensus for changing our policy for desysop in general (Ie. there are no such policy). The user is given due notice on email, and there are no response or activity from the user. As I see it the admin status can be removed without further notice for Stianh@noiki as an administrative measure. [1] [2] Jeblad 22:01, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Spoladore@pt.wikipedia

I request removal of access.

Thank you. Spoladore 12:30, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

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.

피첼@kowikisource

I request temporary sysop access.

Thank you. Ficell 15:09, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Vipuser@ganwikipedia

The following discussion is closed.

I request bureaucrat access for temp because there are soeme bot requests waiting to deal. the formal request are prossecing.

Thank you. Vipuser 17:03, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Hello, please add these bot requests to Steward requests/Bot status, thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 07:13, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
not only my bot but the bots run on the gan wikipedia.--Vipuser 07:59, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
so add them all--Nick1915 - all you want 09:19, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
Yep, You can add also bots of other botowners, temporary bureaucrat status is only given in very very special cases (because making it temporary is rather senseless, since one could then change the rights of other users), rather not, also it is mostly done like: first sysop then crat, in this case please add the bots to be flagged to the request page on meta. But I can see there is no sysop in gan.wiki [4]. Please if You need sysop status, just say so, I would be happy to give You that flag, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 10:40, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done, see above (sysop status for You and Symane granted), best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 14:46, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Bengoa@ay wiki (2 days, one article must be deleted)

The following discussion is closed.

Please, give to me sysop acces 2 days, becouse articles must to bes deleted, and one very important. code: ay

Thanks!--Bengoa (My user talk) 20:34, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

please contact the local sysops, I could not find an emergency and at least one is active, thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 07:18, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
Yes, bute the local sysop is not active now, and articles are not deleted, becouse he isn´t active in this moment (perdon por mi ingles, prefiero el español)--Bengoa (My user talk) 11:48, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
No es un problema, podemos hablar en español también. Pues, lo que querría decirte, no veo ninguna emergencia, entonces estos artículos pueden esperar un poco, se puede poner {{borrar}} y esperar. La última vez Kanon6917 ha borrado un artículo el 24 de mayo, esto no me parece inactivo. Por favor envíale un emilio o espera un poquito (o si es una emergencia, por favor explica por qué). Gracias por tu entendimiento, un saludo, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 11:55, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

OK--Bengoa (My user talk) 12:51, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Theklan@eu wikibooks and Janfri@eu wikibooks

I request temporary sysop access.

  • Language Code: eu
  • List of local sysops: None (eu:wikibooks:Aparteko:ListUsers&group=sysop)
  • List of local bureaucrats: None ((eu:wikibooks:Aparteko:ListUsers&group=bureaucrat)
  • Local Request Link: None[5])
  • Local User Page: b:eu:Lankide:Theklan & b:eu:Lankide:Janfri
  • Preferred duration and reason: There's no local sysop or bureaucrats and some articles must be deleted and main page blocked for preventing vandalism. Both Janfri and Theklan are sysops in eu:wikipedia so we only want to extend this permission as both are now working on expanding this project. We don't have a preferred duration, as there's not a stable community to make elections. When this elections happen we would happily let this other users in their work.

Thank you. Theklan 18:49, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

Hello, please can You make a local link nevertheless, I would like to see a local link always also for temp issues, in case someone would like to object. Also Janfri should know about he is going to be made temp-sysop, but I was not able to find any page where he said that or where someone told him. Please just open a local request where You two leave a short note and I would say lets start with a temp-period of 3 months then. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 00:12, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
We spoke about it by mail, but now I have opened a discussion with him to make it public ([6]). -Theklan 10:50, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
I have nothing to object and I agree with everything Theklan has written. In addition, I have to say that I was notified in advance by mail as Theklan has stated.--Janfri 11:03, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done, both for 3 months, expires 24-09-2008, please make sure to translate the interface at betawiki: only and to upload images preferably at commons:. Come back shortly before the permission expires or feel free to hold a local voting if the community grows. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 14:01, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Alison@gvwiki Manx Gaelic Wikipedia

I request temporary sysop and bureaucrat access.

  • Language Code: gv
  • List of local sysops: gv:Special:Listadmins - one temporary one, gv:User:MacTire02
  • List of local bureaucrats: gv:Special:Listusers/bureaucrat - none
  • Local Request Link: gv:User_talk:MacTire02#Bots_on_the_loose_:.29
  • Local User Page: gv:User:Alison
  • Preferred duration and reason: - one week only. I happened to stop by the wiki and noticed that the usual bots are flooding recentchanges with interwiki links to articles, etc. There are also a number of bogus/vandalism-only accounts which need rename. Also, I'd like to establish the Standard Bot Policy over there, so stewards can deal with this in future with minimum issues. MacTire02 - the only sysop - has given assent to my asking for a temp sysop/'crat bit to clean up the wiki[7], fix the bot issues and establish the usual cross-wiki policy, as he's not really sure what to do. I've done this before on gawiki/gawikti/gdwikti so it'll be no issue at all :) I can speak Irish Gaelic and can just about hack reading Manx Gaelic, so can work over there easy enough. Myself and MacTire02 both speak English and Irish so we're okay.

Thank you / Gura mie ayd / Go raibh maith agat - Alison 00:07, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Until 1 July. Jon Harald Søby 10:54, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
Thank you! Working already ... :) - Alison 16:49, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Numulunj pilgae@mdf Moksha Wikipedia

I request temporary sysop access.

Thank you. --Numulunj pilgae 15:41, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

The link you provided for local request seems to refer to Kranch. And seeing as (probably) no one here understands Moksha, little help with that page would be nice :) --FiliP × 20:02, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
His name is above the voting of Kranch it seems, one person commented, I had suggested a temporary adminship therefore, see in the regular adminship section, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 22:43, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I saw that. But if those 5 votes don't refer to this user, there's no reason to give him even temporary status. If these votes do in fact refer to Numulunj pilgae, then fine, he'll get the temp status. But the page is still confusing :) --FiliP × 12:50, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
Sorry for the confusion on the page. User Kranch was added by another user after all voted for Sura and me. I'd like to edit that but not sure I may edit the election page after elections finished that is why all left as it is. So, may we apply for admin access for Sura and me? Or temporary access? Thank you --Numulunj pilgae 15:25, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done OK, I saw the page history and the voting does indeed refer to you. I've given you temporary status for three months, that is until September 25, 2008. --FiliP × 15:29, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
As for Sura and Kranch... Well, Sura and you had a joined election, while Kranch was added later on. I strongly suggest using separate voting procedures for separate candidates. Since this meta request only referred to you, I didn't promote Sura. --FiliP × 15:32, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
Thank you! Need a piece of advice then. May I edit election page now to avoid future confusions? Or better just to place there explanation and comments?--Numulunj pilgae 08:36, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
That is up to you, but I think you should explain what happened here and that in the future, you'll have to hold separate elections. --FiliP × 09:29, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

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.)

Reminder

  • Import rights can be granted by stewards only, not bureaucrats, so the automatic list of local bureaucrats is irrelevant for this.
  • Usurpation requests should be placed at Steward requests/Usurpation.
  • Username changes should be placed at Requests for username changes.
  • Please make sure you have your accounts renamed before merging them.

Requests for global permissions (please don't add requests yet)

This section is only for users that are unified and on the list of GlobalUsers.
ATTENTION: Please don't add requests yet.
