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 translatewiki.net 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.

nepaboy@bh.wikipedia

Hi, my 3 months temprory access on bhojpuri wikipedia has been expired today. I want adminship again on bhojpuri wikipedia. Nepaboy 09:04, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Is there a local discussion of this, other than your talk page? You may want to try to arrange an election to see if you can get enough support for non-temporary adminship. Kylu 13:12, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

If I do arrange an election to get enough support who will give me vote? there are no any regular user on bhojpuri wikipedia. I would like to show you a list of user who has logged in last 30 days on bhojpuri wikipedia. Please see here. --Nepaboy 12:31, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

We really can't offer "deals" like, "if you get X votes in Y days, you can be an admin". We can, however, point you towards the election guidelines as they currently stand. You are, of course, free to contribute to the opinions presented on the page. Also, we do have a set of global sysops who may assist that project with administrative abilities if you'd like some support maintaining the project while awaiting the outcome of your election (or beyond). Kylu 12:05, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

I have got few support for permanent adminship. see here Nepaboy 03:28, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

You might want to get a few more. I don't think anyone will make permanent adminship with only one support. Perhaps just an extension of your temporary access is more appropriate? Also, see Minimum requirements to elect permanent Administrators. Kylu 04:14, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

බිඟුවා@siwikibooks

Thanks! -- බිඟුවා සාකච්ඡාව 09:36, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

One week does not seem like enough time for such a small community to vote. I'd like to wait another week. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 00:10, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
OK.-- බිඟුවා සාකච්ඡාව 00:53, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
I didn't get any recent updates from meta. Could anyone please update me what is going on? Thank you. -- බිඟුවා සාකච්ඡාව 07:08, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
done. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 01:57, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

AGiorgio08@lgwikipedia

Requesting temporary adminship for this Wiki. AGiorgio08 18:54, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

You do not have any edits there, so could you explain why you need sysop access? LeinaD (t) 23:14, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
Not done, no reason to grant temporary sysop access. LeinaD (t) 11:57, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Sky Harbor@tl.wikibooks

I've put myself up for nomination for this project after calls from several Wikibooks users came for a new administrator. I was once a temporary admin for the Tagalog Wikibooks until my permanent replacement, Felipe Aira, was nominated. However, he is now inactive, and hopefully I can take his place to take care of massive cleanup on the project as a result of his inactivity. --Sky Harbor (talk) 14:33, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold - Since you added today the nomination, this request is put on hold for a week, to gauge community consensus. Thanks, --dferg ☎ talk 14:38, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

Steward requests/Permissions/Crat-header

Akishin D.@ruwikinews

Russian Wikinews need in bureaucrat. Дмитрий talk+ 08:54, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Hmm, there are only 4 votes. We usually give out bureaucrat flags to bigger communities. I'm not sure about this case... --FiliP ██ 09:28, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
With only 36 active users, bureaucrat flags should likely not be given yet.Jusjih 20:12, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
Li.wiktionary have 23 aktive users, but it have 2 bureaucrats. Дмитрий talk+ 06:28, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
There's seemingly a rough consensus for 10 total votes and 75% supporting before promoting someone to bureaucrat. See Talk:Bureaucrat and the related RfC on Meta. Ionek 11:57, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done not enough votes. --FiliP ██ 07:22, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

CheckUser access

Steward requests/Permissions/CU-header

Barras@simple

NonvocalScream 22:11, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done by DerHexer. --dferg ☎ talk 08:31, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Mardetanha@meta

Thanks, -Barras 20:48, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done --dferg ☎ talk 20:52, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Mxn@viwiki

Vietnamese Wikipedia community has concensus on creating local CheckUser. We have voted for Mxn to be one of 2 CUs (another one is DHN@viwiki). You stewards please contact him directly to ask for his identity. Tân (talk) 07:04, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Mxn must identify himself to the Wikimedia Foundation. DHN must also do the same.--Shanel 08:42, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
Faxed. Thanks for waiting. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 17:47, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
Waiting for office confirmation. — Dferg 13:18, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, but we do not know how long it takes new CheckUser right? We (viwikipedia community), waited so long ... minhhuy*= 14:39, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
Nobody here can do anything until the office posts receipt of the identification. Ionek 17:19, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
The fax was received, but was illegible. I emailed Mxn to notify him at that time. The office has not received an alternate method or better fax as of yet. Bastique ☎ call me! 22:19, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
Might it be easier if the user scanned his ID and sent it as an email? Kylu 12:11, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

DHN@viwiki

Vietnamese Wikipedia community has concensus on creating local CheckUser. We have voted for DHN to be one of 2 CUs (another one is Mxn@viwiki). You stewards please contact him directly to ask for his identity. Tân (talk) 07:04, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

See above.--Shanel 08:42, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
Should I wait for the confirmation request or should I send my confirmation letter ASAP? DHN 18:11, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
Send your identification ASAP. only after the foundation confirms, this will be decided. --Jyothis 18:24, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
Identification sent. DHN 07:38, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
I sent an email with my ID info several days ago to secure-info@wikimedia.org but haven't heard anything back. Is that the correct email address I should send it to or is there another one? DHN 04:32, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
Hello DHN. Your ID were received and confirmed by Cary, but per CheckUser policy there must be at least 2 checkusers on a wiki or none at all so until Mxn identifies we can't promote you. Once his ID is confirmed, we will promote you both. Thanks, — Dferg ☎ 12:58, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Deineka@ukwiki

According to ArbCom decision, Deineka was elected CheckUser in Ukrainian Wikipedia. He is not identified to WMF yet, but I have already asked him to do it. Per Ukrainian Wikipedia Arbitration Committee, — NickK 18:58, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold - Waiting for Office identity confirmation. Thanks, — Dferg 21:15, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
User says that he sent letter last week, but there was no response since that.Anatoliy (talk) 20:31, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
We're waiting for the office still, same as the above folks. Not a lot we can do until they say we can. :( Kylu 15:41, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
Has not been received as of today's date. Bastique ☎ call me! 22:19, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

VictorAnyakin@ukwiki

According to ArbCom decision, VictorAnyakin was elected CheckUser in Ukrainian Wikipedia. He is not identified to WMF yet, but I have already asked him to do it. Per Ukrainian Wikipedia Arbitration Committee, — NickK 18:58, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold - Waiting for Office identity confirmation. Thanks, — Dferg 21:15, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
ID received & confirmed - still on hold per the policy untill Deineka identifies. On a project there must be or 2 CheckUsers or none at all. — Dferg 14:20, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Damzow@hewikipedia

37 votes, Have send my ID today, thanks --Damzow 08:43, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold --dferg ☎ talk 08:51, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
How can this be a vote, people can only support? Huib talkAbigor 08:59, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
CheckUser_policy#Access_to_CheckUser allows selecting checkusers with "the highest number of votes in multiple choice elections", which is the prefered way in a lot of wikis. Laaknor 09:14, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
ppl could support one out of 4 candidates or against all candidates. Damzow 09:15, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, missed that one... Thought we only supported pro / con votes. Huib talkAbigor 09:17, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
(-: Damzow 09:26, 8 August 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.

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

<translate>

  • If you're requesting the removal of your own permissions, make sure you're logged in to your 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 (see [[<tvar|self-discussion>Talk:Steward_requests/Permissions/2011#Self_requests</>|previous discussion]] on 24 hour delays); the rights will not be restored by stewards once they are removed.
  • To request the removal of another user's permissions, you must gain consensus on the local wiki first. When there is community consensus that the user's access should be removed, a trusted user 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. However, as bureaucrats of some wikis may remove users from the administrator or bureaucrat group, please see also a [[<tvar|crat-rem>Bureaucrat#Removing_access</>|separate list of these specific wikis]].
  • See the [[<tvar|usage>#Using this page</>|instructions above]] for adding new requests. Please post new requests at the bottom of the section.</translate>

Åsa L@svwikipedia

This user had her adminship expired on July 31, 2010, see w:sv:Wikipedia:Administratörer#Till_och_med_juli_2010. The user in question has been pretty inactive since the second half of March 2010 and has not been asked for a re-nomination. Please remove Åsa L's administrator rights. --Heymid 14:35, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

See below. Kylu 17:52, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
I am a bureaucrat at svwikipedia and I can confirm what Lavallen says below. svwikipedia has a one-year policy. Åsa L's adminship formally ended some days ago and it is ok to remove the admin rights. (But, as Lavallen says below, there is no hurry with these requests and Heymid - as a longtime blocked user - should have let someone else make this request.) MagnusA 08:01, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done --dferg ☎ talk 08:37, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Suz@svwikipedia

Pretty much the same as the request above. User in question also had his/her adminship expired on July 31, 2010, see w:sv:Wikipedia:Administratörer#Till_och_med_juli_2010. However, this user has been more active than Åsa L. However, Suz has not either been asked for a re-nomination this year (only in 2009) or done a self-nomination. --Heymid 14:35, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

If it's alright with you, I'd rather have the request from a user who isn't currently blocked on that project. Preferably a bureaucrat. Thanks. Kylu 17:52, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
I'm not bureaucrat any longer, but I can confirm that the mandate of these two admins has expired. The one-year policy. The nomination-page for Suz and for Åsa L. You can also see the talk-page of these users. None of them has been asked to stay as admins.
These admins can be desysop from july 31, but there is no hurry. -- Lavallen 18:23, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure you don't want them to make use of their administrator privileges after their expiration of their admin tools. If they do, then I think it is really necessary to remove their admin privileges. By the way, is there any reason to why I have to be a not blocked user on sv.wikipedia in order to complete the request? --Heymid 20:16, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
If these users were nominated again, they would most likely be re-elected. Because of that, I see no reason to hurry.
It's not unusual that blocked users come here to desysop their foe or tries to make themself admins. The Stewards know nothing about Your relation to Suz and Åsa L or the sv.wiki-project in general. (And neither do I.) -- Lavallen 06:01, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
I am a bureaucrat at svwikipedia and I can confirm what Lavallen says above. svwikipedia has a one-year policy. Suz' adminship formally ended some days ago and it is ok to remove the admin rights. (But, as Lavallen says, there is no hurry with these requests and Heymid - as a longtime blocked user - should have let someone else make this request.) MagnusA 07:59, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Actarus Prince d'Euphor@frwiktionary

Status will expire within 3 months. Please remove status on 4 August 2010 -- Quentinv57 17:51, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Removed Kylu 12:10, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
I'm wrong, sorry. I would say 4 November 2010 -- Quentinv57 13:55, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
Ah, and you reversed it. That's fine. How about we just archive this and you put in another request in November, instead? Kylu 17:47, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
I agree with Kylu. Please request removal when the user's term expires. Marking as not done for now. --dferg ☎ talk 08:38, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
Not sure I'll be active on November... I know that stewards remove some temporary sysop access, isn't it possible to do the same in this case ? -- Quentinv57 11:28, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
Actarus may request himself the removal of his temp sysop access here. Other folks of the frwikt community may do so too, since you stated in the reason for sysopping him that his admiship should be removed in 3 months. Elfix 11:42, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Temp sysop expires 4 November 2010 Laaknor 11:37, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

I'm quite fond of the proposal that granted permissions, like page protection and blocks, be granted the ability to auto-expire. Here's hoping. Kylu 16:35, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Micki@srwikipedia

I request removal of my sysop rights on sr.wikipedia. I have global account, but I still confirmed request on my user talk page. Thanks. mickiτ 21:10, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
