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 personal data 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.

Trần Nguyễn Minh Huy@vi.wikiquote

Not have any administrators do Vietnamese Wikiquote . And this project is very often destructive (I'm responsible for my first speech), while the assigned tasks preservation often absent. So I would like to become administrator here for 6 months for maintenance and solve vandalism.

I fully eligible to do this, you can see my user page in Vietnamese Wikipedia --minhhuy*= 07:41, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Note:Only today you have proposed, you should wait 7 days. --Taill 10:43, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

OK OK, thanks --minhhuy*= 10:44, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I do not think that will be a problem to receive status since there is no sysop, but please wait, maybe not everyone will agree. --Taill 11:03, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
Sock puppetry?? --minhhuy*= 12:29, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
What he said wasn't wrong at all. Pmlineditor  11:59, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
Actually, there are no active community there (see recent changes, so I can't find any reason to wait for 7 days. Tân (talk) 14:52, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
Doesn't change anything,really. 7 days is 7 days. Pmlineditor  09:16, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
Sir, I understand the rule, but if there is no community should be given the place status? And for Trần Nguyễn Minh Huy, I see that the recent changes are few visitors. And I see statistics on page 11 that are active users, so I do not see the problem with the community, if you want to let users vote. Best regards, Driste 13:22, 13 February 2010 (UTC)


As there are no administrators currently on the Welsh Wikiquote, I would like to request temporary adminship for a period of six months. A few months ago, the project was proposed for closure. Since then I have increased the number of articles to over 200, including many Help pages. To have admin status would enable me to deal with any vandalism and to protect certain pages e.g. the home page. I also hope to attract more editors to get the site well and truly active. I am a Welsh speaker and have been an administrator on cy.Wikipedia since 13 February 2009. Thankyou. Rhodri77 16:55, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

On hold until 14 February 2010 for community input. Kylu 16:57, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. Rhodri77 18:24, 7 February 2010 (UTC)


Thank you!--Aturantekin 13:37, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

Hello Aturantekin, please provide a link to the local community approval or link to the announcement on local village pump. LeinaD (t) 14:18, 12 February 2010 (UTC)


  • Sockpuppeteers are not normally granted sysop, I wouldn't think. Additionally, the link you provide is not a discussion of the community wishing to grant you sysop, but you requesting it with no comments. I'm sure the stewards will treat it appropriately. 23:38, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
Time2wait.svg On hold until 19 February 2010 for discussion both here and on ay.wikipedia. Expected subject matter would be the multiple local blocks and sockpuppetry allegations. Kylu 00:04, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Copypaste from ay.wiki : --MisterWiki 15:29, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi, I would like to help here with maintenance and blocks. I'm learning Aymara too and I want to help this project. I speak English, Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese and French. --MisterWiki 16:23 12 ana 2010 (UTC)
I see that the only admin here isn't active since Apr 11, 2008. I promise to do an exceptional and good work here as sysop. Removing spam and vandalism quickly. I want to "clean up my name" because of all these sockpuppetry and blocks on commons, es.wiki and en.wiki. I will not fail you :-) --MisterWiki 06:52 13 ana 2010 (UTC)


I authorize obtaining in the project with no active admin will not. Therefore I kindly request to give the user authority.--Reality006 18:07, 14 February 2010 (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.

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.


Thank you! Aturantekin 05:57, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Aturantekin, can you provide a link to local discussion? --WizardOfOz talk 07:07, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

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 ====
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    = 
 |user name =  
 |discussion= <!-- local confirmation link / local policy link -->



Moreover he had applied meta.wikimedia in June 2007 and he wanted to resign from bureaucrat and admin status.--Sabri76 14:04, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
Will the vote continue for the week?--Shanel 14:33, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure. We have not got enough active users, but I'm sure that every user are agreed to discussion. If this discussion enough for you, you'll do this...--Sabri76 15:05, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes. If there is no objection after a week Dbl12010 will have his rights removed. --Shanel 15:13, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Note: Voting ends on January 14.--Shanel 15:13, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Voting ends on January 14? what does it mean? Voting has started on February 3.--Sabri76 15:28, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
wikt:tr:Vikisözlük:Köy çeşmesi#İnaktif bürokratın durumu appears to say otherwise, is that incorrect? Kylu 17:03, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
(to Kylu) No it isn't. "İnaktif bürokratın durumu" means "status of inactive bureaucrat". "İnaktif hizmetlilerin durumu" means "status of inactive admins". Dbl2010 is admin and also bureaucrat. I will requested for resign his bureaucrat status, but I'm waiting for ::this voting. By the way, I'm sure he haven't been active in Wiktionary. Because, in June 2007 and he wanted to resign from bureaucrat and admin status and he e-mailed to me he doesn't think to using any Wikimedia project.--Sabri76 18:27, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
He wasn't added to the inactive admin discussion until the 7th also[3]. Please confirm? He's been gone for so long, I don't think waiting the full time is going to hurt anything. Kylu 22:59, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
You are right. We have to finish the discussion on 13 February.--Sabri76 20:51, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I mistyped. That should say February 14th above, not January.--Shanel 13:32, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
The discussion has finished...--Sabri76 22:43, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Kylu 22:55, 14 February 2010 (UTC)


On hold, I've asked for a confirmation on the user's talk page. --M/ 14:40, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
Confirmed, done. --M/ 14:43, 13 February 2010 (UTC)


Inisheer is not active since 2008. She has said to me (see link) that she don't need the sysop rights anymore. Thank you by advance -- Quentinv57 18:34, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
Done. Please thank Inisheer for their service as an administrator. Kylu 19:59, 13 February 2010 (UTC)


Yes check.svg Done :-( guillom 00:33, 14 February 2010 (UTC)




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:
