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 information 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:

Administrator access

Steward requests/Permissions/Sysop-header

Dark Eagle@ltg.wikipedia

Hello. Latgalian Wikipedia was opened 4 days ago, and now we need administrator. I was test-admin in the Incubator. So till we don't have big community, please give me a temporary status of the administrator. Thanks! Dark Eagle 16:07, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

granted for 6 months. expires on 22.9.2011 Matanya 16:10, 22 March 2011 (UTC)


Bot requires adminship for around 3 weeks to replace old diacritics to new ones in accordance with similar procedures on ro.wp and ro.news. --Rebel 09:57, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

can you please start a local discussion? or link to one? Matanya 10:00, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
There is no local discussion, there was one at ro.w but I think it is insufficient. The account has just been created and will also need bot rights. I will start a local discussion and will get back to you.--Strainu 10:08, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

CheckUser access

user דניאל ב.@hewiki

idantifiction has been sent. Daniel B 18:43, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Identification received; Yes check.svg Done. PeterSymonds (talk) 20:39, 23 March 2011 (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 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>

Removal of sysop access on pl wiki

Yes check.svg Done, temporary one month adminship to expire 18 April 2011. Please let us know if you need it removed before then. Thanks for your work. PeterSymonds (talk) 22:06, 18 March 2011 (UTC)


Placing the request here as per above discussion. Request for admin rights and import rights in Sanskrit wikisource.

The Sanskrit wikisource (http://sa.wikisource.org) is created today. I was the person who proposed it and I am involved in building the community for Sanskrit wiki projects.

A huge amount of Sanskrit source text is available in old wikisource (Sanskrit main page in old wikisource, and Sanskrit pages category). I want to import all these pages to newly created wikisource. Also I am involved in the community building program for Sanskrit wiki projects. Admin rights and import rights in Sanskrit wikisource are a must for these tasks. Kindly approve my request for admin right in Sanskrit wikisource. --Shijualex 16:09, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Temporary sysop and import for one month, expires on 19 April. Jafeluv 17:40, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Prince Kassad@sahwikisource

I'm requesting temporary import rights to import the pages from oldwikisource over to the new wiki (since nobody else seems to be willing to). -- Prince Kassad 18:56, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done temporarily for one month, to expire 19 April 2011. Please let us know if you finish before than, and thanks for your work. PeterSymonds (talk) 19:37, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
okay, I'm done now. -- Prince Kassad 20:45, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
That was quick. Removed. Thanks! PeterSymonds (talk) 20:46, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. -- Mentifisto 00:20, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
You also can enable sources for transwiki import, so any sysop can import pages from such sources without extra flags. You can ask in bugzilla: -- Màñü飆¹5 talk [es] 00:27, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
