Requests and proposals Steward requests (<translate>

Permissions</translate>)

latest archive
<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
Cross-wiki requests
Meta-Wiki requests

<translate>

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 =
 |discussion= 
}}
<translate><!--T:15-->
(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>

Requests

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

==== user name@xxproject ====
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    =
 |user name =
 |discussion= 
}}

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.

Stewards
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.
Archiving
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.


Ikatz@euwiktionary

Hello, I'm Ikatz. I am the most active user of the Basque wiktionary and I want to be administrator. Now there are two administrators, but one of them never accesses to wiktionary and the second adminstrator accesses a little bit. Sometimes when there is vandalism, often spend days or even weeks before they are deleted and punished. Moreover, in the Basque wiktionary there are many things to do but some of them I can not do because I am not an administrator. I have not presented at the cafe to be adminstrator because there are only the second manager mentioned above and me. Besides the second administrator is who recommended me introduce myself just to administrator and I thought it wouldn't be necessary to vote in the cafe because it has already offered their support. Forgive me for my bad English. Thanks. --EH-Ikatz answer here 22:59, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Demmy@yo.wikipedia

I am requesting an extension to my sysop which expires tomorrow. I am the only active administrator on the wiki. Thanks. Demmy 16:15, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done for 3 months through 2010-03-01. Your last request on 2009-02-28 to prolong was based on the request shown above started in 2008. Since no one says anything after February 2009 with very limited active users there, I am extending for another 3 months.--Jusjih 21:56, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Jack Merridew@en.wikiquote

Sorry for the back and forth. They would like me back. Cheers, Jack Merridew 11:10, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done en.wikiquote has it's own 'crats. Ask locally. Laaknor 11:21, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
Sorry; this was a copypasta goof; I meant en.wikisource. Anyway, I've a note languishing at s:User talk:BirgitteSB#seen a loose bit around here?. Cheers, Jack Merridew 11:31, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
and s:User talk:Zhaladshar#got a bit? Cheers, Jack Merridew 11:59, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
and it's been done locally. Cheers, Jack Merridew 09:12, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Rokaszil@ffwikipedia

Hello! I want admin rights in Fulfulde Wikipedia because I can help for this. User Guaka isn't active administrator in this Wikipedia.

This page doesn't exist. Alex Pereira falaê 18:20, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
Alex is referring to the discussion page linked above ( ff:iscussion_utilisateur:Rokaszil )... is there a chance it's actually somewhere else? ++Lar: t/c 06:13, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I haven't got the talk page in Fulfulde Wikipedia. I have got the talk page in Lithuanian Wikipedia. Rokaszil 10:58, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

Have any announcement on local page? Alex Pereira falaê 16:05, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

User page? http://ff.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utilisateur:Rokaszil . Rokaszil 17:12, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

No, your local Village pump. What the community say about your request? Alex Pereira falaê 18:25, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Nesnad@chr.wikipedia

Hello! I think that one of the things slowing down input on the Cherokee Wikipedia is that many people don't know how to input the non-roman characters into the computer. A helpful user on the Navajo Wikipedia has taught me how to create an input bar (that is in use on Navajo Wikipedia) for use on Cherokee Wikipedia. I request temporary Admin rights so I can impliment this, in the hope of making Cherokee Wikipedia easier to use for those who do not know how to setup a Cherokee keyboard and what not. Thanks in advance, wado. Nesnad 13:26, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Sounds reasonable to me, how long do you need the rights for? Would a week be enough? a month? Let us know. ++Lar: t/c 06:11, 27 November 2009 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done to expire on 2010-01-02 as I see all existing two administrators being inactive. Please ask shortly before the end of this year if you need extension.--Jusjih 03:09, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
Sorry about the slow reply! And I think I should be able to get all the details furbished before the deadline, although will be back here to ask for an extension if not. So far it is looking good and I really hope this will inspire people to use Cherokee Wikipedia more. Cheers, Nesnad 17:36, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Seagull.Stefanos@el.wikiquote

As you have probably noticed, the 3 permanent administrators in Greek Wikiquotes (or "Βικιφθέγματα") are inactive (don't work for the project any more). For this reason, last March, I asked for temporary permission. The first 3-month permission (27.3 until 27.6.2009) was extended for an extra 5 month period, which expires tomorrow. Recently I put this problem under discussion in the Community Discussion Page of Βικιφθέγματα, asking for "votes". Until now 4 people have vote positively ("support"), most of them are administrators of the Greek Wikipedia. Among them is also "Θεόδωρος", one of the three inactive admins I mentioned before. So... could you, please, give me permanent permission? You have probably to know that, in fact, during these last 8 months, I'm the only one who take care of the Greek Wikiquotes, adding plenty of new articles and cheching if everything goes right in the project... --Seagull.Stefanos 08:51, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

Sounds okay for me to give permanent access. Removed from Steward requests/Permissions/Approved temporary. Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 13:38, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
Agreed (for the record). ++Lar: t/c 06:11, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

Thuvack@ts.wikipedia

Real life has given me a breather during the summer Holidays. I would like to contribute once more on work started in this wiki. Temporary admin rights can help frequent vandal in this wiki.Thank you! -- Thuvack 08:20, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

We'd rather you didn't use your temp admin rights to frequently vandalize :) ... (Yes, I know what you really meant but it was funny. )... No objections, seems reasonable enough. 6 months? ++Lar: t/c 11:25, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
That sounds good to me... yeah I omitted the word "fight" after vandal. It does sound funny in retrospect :-) -- Thuvack 13:22, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Jamesofur@ug.wikipedia

I'd like to request temporary sysop on ug wiki to clean out the deletion category (at ug:Category:Candidates_for_speedy_deletion) which is currently at 67 pages. I have made a post stating my intention to do this on wiki (see above link) I have no problem if you'd like to wait to see if there is an objection. I shouldn't need sysop for more then 10-15 minutes. Jamesofur 23:05, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 23:06, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
It takes longer to look at each of 67 deletion requests then you'd think!, Done now if someone could remove access and thanks Jamesofur 00:03, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
Yes check.svg more done Removed, thank you for your hard work. Kylu 00:05, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

See bureaucrat for information about the position. In principle, requests for temporary bureaucrat access are not granted.

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.

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.

Smooth O@bs.wiki

Election done. --WizardOfOz 09:33, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

User is not yet identified to the WMF. This needs to be done before access can be granted. I've posted information about the procedure at his talk page. --Erwin 09:42, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

Note: this user requested CU rights in last month: Steward requests/Permissions/2009-10#Smooth O@bs.wikipedia. LeinaD (t) 17:00, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

  • Note:@ Leinad and he was elected by the rules of bs.wiki. Dungodung wanted more votes and so we extended the election. The result are 10 more votes of support and two which doesn´t count (not enough edits by election rules). It is the same election just extended.--WizardOfOz 18:22, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
    I think this is fine now, as the support for this user is quite obvious. --FiliP ██ 22:13, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
    Shouldn't it be extended, I mean there are not enough votes according the policy ? Huib talk 19:13, 25 November 2009 (UTC)
    Just for those few votes? There is no vote against him for a month, but if there is realy a problem we can do it once more :). --WizardOfOz 19:40, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Note:Extended until 12-15-2009 even if there is no need. --WizardOfOz 19:54, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for extending the vote. Policy is clear on this, you need 25-30 votes and 70-80% support for a checkuser election to be valid. 20 votes are not enough. See CU#Access_to_CheckUser. I hope that helps clarify matters, this is not a debatable point. ++Lar: t/c 19:23, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Lucas Teles@ptwikipedia

On wiki.pt, Lucas Teles was elected for a one-year term. User already been told to send the confirmation of his real identity as shown in this diff. Thanks. Ruy Pugliesi 01:13, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Waiting for Cary' response--Nick1915 - all you want 11:28, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Now Lucas is identified. Ruy Pugliesi 22:23, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done --FiliP ██ 23:01, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. Ruy Pugliesi 14:22, 1 December 2009 (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.
Note that this section 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

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).


==== username@xxproject ====
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    = 
 |user name =  
 |discussion= <!-- local confirmation link / local policy link -->
}}

TBC@simplewikt

Done. Thanks to user TBC for his past work as a sysop, hoping to see him/her active again. --M/ 23:25, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Nino Barbieri@de.wiktionary

It has been a sad duty. Requiescat in Pacem. --M/ 20:09, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Момир Томић@sr.wikipedia

Per the above-referenced srwiki administration policy, "Одузимање администраторских права следи аутоматски након 18 месеци некоришћења истих." - sysop rights are automatically removed after 18 months of inactivity. Please remove sysop rights for sr:Корисник:Момир Томић, whose last admin action was on 13 May 2008. --Dzordzm 08:44, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Confirmed. --FiliP ██ 09:56, 4 December 2009 (UTC)
Thank to this user for his past work as a sysop. --M/ 20:09, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

ChristophLanger@dewiki

Status removed. LeinaD (t) 00:19, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Nocturne@dewiki

Status removed. LeinaD (t) 00:20, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Petrusbarbygere@frwiki

Romary@frwiki

Fred.th@frwiki

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:

Dutch arbcom

Recently on nl.wikipedia a new group has been created for arbcom members. They have gotten the right to see deleted edits. I would like to request the current Arbcom members (see w:nl:Wikipedia:Arbitragecommissie/Leden) to be put in this group. They are: w:nl:Gebruiker:Paul B, w:nl:Gebruiker:CaAl, w:nl:Gebruiker:Groucho NL, w:nl:Gebruiker:Lolsimon, w:nl:Gebruiker:Robert, w:nl:Gebruiker:Taketa and w:nl:Gebruiker:Basvb. (Lolsimon and Taketa will not actually get any extra rights because they already have them because they are sysops, but I think it would be best to give them the group membership nevertheless). - Andre Engels 22:57, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Request withdrawn - I now hear that local bureaucrats should be able to do this. - Andre Engels 23:07, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
