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>

Administrator access

Steward requests/Permissions/Sysop-header


I would like to request administrator privilege on Kashmiri Wikipedia. Unfortunately there is not community, however proposal was posted October 24 and no opposition since such day, having passed almost 2 weeks by now. --خَرگوش 06:37, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done For three months until 7 February 2012. Ruslik 07:38, 7 November 2011 (UTC)


Please give Administrator access per local consensus. Thanks ― Teak 05:18, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

Done Granted for 6 months to expire on 2012-05-05. Please remember to translate the interface at translatewiki.net only and preferably upload images to Wikimedia Commons. To prolong your adminship, please come back a few days before the status expires or hold a local election if the community grows. Thanks. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 17:12, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
Please kindly advise what are the community size requirements to have a permanent administrator. A discussion lasting 7 days was held, which ended with 6 votes for, 0 against. The community has at least 6 active members who are active daily, and an established and fast growing proofreading program. ― Teak 20:39, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
I'd like to add that Վազգեն is one of the founding members of the Armenian Wikisouce, has been continuously contributing to and enriching the project ever since (starting in 2006), has held temporary adminship for a period of six months in the past, and has currently been elected for permanent adminship with 100% of the vote. Could you please reconsider changing it to permanent? Thank you, Chaojoker 21:21, 6 November 2011 (UTC)
In fact, the situation is borderline. I hesitated before giving temp access, and as this user is active here for many years, was already a temp sysop and has the full trust of the community, I'm okay to move to permanent adminship. Cordially, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 18:16, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, Chaojoker 01:57, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

User ProtoplasmaKid@mx.wikimedia

I request admin permissions to maintain and create pages on the website of the Mexican chapter. Regards, ProtoplasmaKid 00:01, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done Magister Mathematicae is dealing with setting up new rights on mx.wikimedia now, you should ask him. --Vituzzu 00:05, 8 November 2011 (UTC)


Please grant permanent adminship per unanimous community support. Thank you, Chaojoker 02:01, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Done Granted for 6 months to expire on 2012-05-08. Your community may not be sizable to warrant permanent adminship yet, per Requests_for_comment/Minimum_voting_requirements#Minimum_requirements_to_elect_permanent_Administrators.-- Jusjih 12:00, 8 November 2011 (UTC)
Oh, finally I see some documented discussion around this issue. Thanks for linking to it! :) Jusjih, according to that discussion, most of the contributors think that a minimum of 5 supports with 2/3 ratio is enough. Here we have 6 supports with 0 against. Also, please take a look at SRP#Վազգեն@hy.wikisource, where this community was deemed to be borderline, and permanent adminship was granted. To throw some more weight onto the tipping scales: I am one of the founders of the project [2]; I have been a temp admin on this project on 5 previous occasions (6 months each) [3], [4], [5], [6], [7]; I am a permanent sysop on hy.wikipedia and am one of the oldest sysops on the project (since 2007 [8] - although increasingly inactive, since I currently prefer to spend my wikitime on hy.wikisource). Thanks for your consideration. ― Teak 16:10, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

Steward requests/Permissions/Crat-header

CheckUser access

Steward requests/Permissions/CU-header


Please give Tinz the checkuser rights for dewiki. He has been elected in the checkuser election. As former ombudsman he is identified to the Foundation already. --Geitost diskusjon 01:49, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. -- Mentifisto 02:04, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Hei ber@dewiki

Please give Hei ber the checkuser rights for dewiki. He has been elected in the checkuser election. As former ombudsman he must be identified to the Foundation already though his name isn't listed at the Identification noticeboard. I think this must be a mistake. Can you check this, please?
Bdk is also elected again (who already has the rights), and Rax was also elected, but he isn't identified yet. I left him a note about this. We'll now have 5 persons with checkuser rights in the future, that makes things a little easier. :-) --Geitost diskusjon 01:49, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

For now this is Time2wait.svg On hold until the situation is assessed. -- Mentifisto 02:04, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
Just a note: it seems that, whether identification has happened or not is unknown at this point; I think it would be best if it is re-submitted. -- Mentifisto 19:54, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done--Vituzzu 21:42, 7 November 2011 (UTC)


Please give Rax the checkuser rights for dewiki. Andreas Werle 16:37, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold Rax is not yet identified. --Vituzzu 16:40, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
true, not yet ;) (I sent a message right now.) --Rax 22:38, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
Rax is now identified.--Müdigkeit 22:44, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
Yep, I had given him CU access three minutes before you request ^^
--Vituzzu 22:45, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! --Rax 23:00, 7 November 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>

Marcin Otorowski@plwiki

Due to our rule, introduced after voting, in the name of Polish Wikipedia community, I hereby request for removing sysop access, due to their inactivity for over a year. Marcin Otorowski had been notified according to the procedure, but failed to reply. Masur 06:49, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Ruslik 07:46, 7 November 2011 (UTC)


Please remove my sysops. I don't have the time to contribute at the moment. Shefshef 14:08, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. thanks for your work. Matanya 14:09, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Juan renombrado@es.wiktionary

Please remove my extra rights. I've been sysop/bureaucreat long enough. Thanks for your time. Juan renombrado 12:53, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Hecho :-( Un saludo.
Marco Aurelio (Nihil Prius Fide) 13:38, 7 November 2011 (UTC)


Please remove my checkuser rights. Thanks in advance. --Hardscarf 17:33, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Done. Thank you for your work! -Barras 17:49, 7 November 2011 (UTC)


Hello. Please remove my sysops. I have no time use them at the moment. Thanks, נינצ'ה 22:13, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done by Mentifisto. Trijnstel 23:00, 7 November 2011 (UTC)


Please remove my bureacrat and sysop status. I am off to smell the roses. --GoEThe 11:27, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done; thanks for your service over the years! -- Mentifisto 11:33, 8 November 2011 (UTC)


Please review the activities of the user (CU, sysop) 17:43, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done I think you didn't understand which kind of request can be done over there. --Vituzzu 19:50, 8 November 2011 (UTC)
in my opinion, without consent, acts in front of him trying to be his own views on others, not very communicative, CU and syssop abusing the rights, to disclose any information that you can only get from CU activity, reckless acts, etc. 23:16, 8 November 2011 (UTC)
Removing {{not done}} is always a bad idea ;)
Anyway, you definitely didn't understand the purpose of this page, sysops flag can be removed per local consensus, while CU abuses must be examined by the Ombudsman commission but, anyway, go on saying "there's an abuse" and no other infos is quite useless. --Vituzzu 23:22, 8 November 2011 (UTC)


Not active for some time, can't say when I'll return. Will request community consent if and when I wish to resume my adminship. --Havelock 17:34, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Thanks for all your services. — Tanvir | Talk ] 17:37, 8 November 2011 (UTC)


Please remove my admin rights --Costello 20:22, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Matanya 20:29, 8 November 2011 (UTC)


Please remove my sysops. Thanks, Stullkowski 22:22, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, thanks for your work! -- Mentifisto 22:31, 8 November 2011 (UTC)


Please remove my bureacrat and sysop status. Thanks. Leandro Martinez msg 08:58, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
