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:

MalTsilna @ tt.wikibooks.org

Good day! Not if you could extend the term of my administration in the Tatar Wikibooks another 3 months. --MalTsilna 13:52, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Hello MalTsilna. Can you please post an advisory notice on the local village pump first? - Even if there's no community it's the standard procedure. I see that you've been granted 6 months temp. adminship this time, therefore we can grant you temp. adminship for another 6 months. Regards, -- Dferg ☎ talk 17:40, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
OK! I'll try to do it, but so far I have exams and I need some time to get it all organized. -- 19:30, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

  1. October 15, 2009 - December 15, 2009
  2. December 15, 2009 - June 15, 2010
  3. June 15, 2010 - December 14, 2010
  4. December 15, 2010 - June 15, 2011

(It would be nice if some longer time-frame could be considered; we've been doing this for almost 2 years now.) Ahéheeʼ. Seb az86556 04:48, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done I simply archived notification for access removal. Almost two years have passed in temporary access, users are trusted, native speaker community is small; two admins. --Millosh 15:28, 11 June 2011 (UTC)


Could you please extend my adminship? It seems expired today. Thanks. @=={Lionslayer> 13:44, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Even if there is no community, please post a note at the local village pump saying that you're requesting temporary adminship there. We will wait a week more or less and if there's no opposition, we can grant you again temporary adminship. Regards, -- Dferg ☎ talk 14:08, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
Since I was granted adminship on 15th of Mar, I thought it will expire on 15th of May. It seems the date start counting from the date of request. @=={Lionslayer> 15:47, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
That's right, it should have expired on 15 June. [1][2] However, you still need to post a local note for extension (which I see you've done now). Jafeluv 15:53, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

Steward requests/Permissions/Crat-header

CheckUser access

Steward requests/Permissions/CU-header

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>

Yes check.svg Done - All removed. -Barras 15:06, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, you are very fast, faster than me. :-) --Geitost diskusjon 15:19, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Your remarks, etc. I did not volunteer my valuable time and work my tail off to become an administrator only to have to (a) block the same idiots time and time again and (b) be the subject of off-wiki attacks. I have been in touch with Maggie Dennis at the Foundation over this and while she hopes I'll reconsider, I am requesting desysoping so that I won't be tempted to return. Perhaps someday,when th Foundation rethinks itsposition on things like rangeblocks and real action against potentially dangerous individuals who single out administrators, I will return. In the meantime, I just want to get gone. PMDrive1061 03:15, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
