Requests and proposals Requests for permissions Archives°
This page enables stewards to handle permissions requests, including the giving and taking of administrator, bureaucrat, checkuser, and oversight rights, for all Wikimedia wikis which do not have a local permissions procedure. If your wiki has a local bureaucrat, submit your request to that user or to the relevant local request page (see the index of request pages). Requests for bot status, URL blacklisting and whitelisting, and CheckUser queries belong elsewhere.

Interface-translations are done at Betawiki.

For urgent requests, such as to combat large-scale vandalism on a small wiki, contact a steward in the #wikimedia-stewardsconnect IRC channel (see a web-based IRC client). In emergencies only, type !steward in the channel to inform stewards that you need help.

Please only make requests here after gaining the on-wiki approval of your local community.

Using this page

When requesting permissions, copy and paste the following text into the correct section. Please fill in all the required fields -- language code, link to the local request (or other means of confirming that the request has approval), and link to your local user page. Without this information, a steward cannot process your request.

Please summarize your request in the "summary".

==== Username@language-code project-name ====
I request sysop access.
*'''Language Code:''' xx
*'''Local Request Link:''' [[:xx:Project:wiki]]
*'''Automatic List of local bureaucrats:''' [[:<xx:project>:Special:Listusers/bureaucrat]]
*'''Local User Page:''' [[xx:User:Example]]

Thank you. ~~~~

Confirmation of identity

Certain permissions (notably CheckUser and Oversight) additionally require users to confirm their identity. Users requesting these permissions must make a request below, and must also submit the relevant identification to the Foundation. The request is placed on hold temporarily, until receipt has been formally confirmed by the office.

Instructions for how you can confirm your identity can be found at: Steward handbook/email templates.

For stewards: Identification noticeboard.

Requests

Administrator access

See administrator for information about the position. Requests for temporary permissions and removal of access belong in other sections.

Johney@fi wikisource

I request sysop access. Bureucrat Mzlla in Finnish Wikisource is inactivity.

Thank you. --Johney 15:13, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done--Shanel 15:17, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access

See bureaucrat for information about the position.


CheckUser access

To request CheckUser information, see Request for CheckUser information. This is the place to request CheckUser access. Note that temporary CheckUser access is not permitted.

Stewards: When someone asks for CheckUser status, please check the current policy regarding bestowal of status before giving the status. Do not grant CheckUser access unless the user is identified to the foundation, which will be announced here. 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@wikipedia.org so that the listadmins know the person is allowed on the mailing list (the list may contain confidential information), and make sure they contact an op for access to #wikimedia-checkuser.

Oversight access

Do not initiate an oversight request here. The Arbitration Committee will make the request once there is consensus on the local wiki (this process is currently for en-Wikipedia only).

Stewards: Do not grant Oversight access unless the user is identified to the foundation, which will be announced here. When you give someone oversight access, list them on Hiding revisions.

Removal of access

If you want to request that your own status be removed, please don't forget to place a note on your local user talk page (preferably with an English translation). This is required to prove your identity. And then add the request here. You should add the difflink of your local confirmation edit to the request.

To request the removal of another user's status, you must gain consensus on the local wiki first. All discussion must be kept 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 very brief explanation of the reason for the request, and summarize the results of discussion.

Copy and paste the following text into the correct section. Fill in all the required fields -- language code, link to the local request, and link to your local user page. Without this information, a steward cannot process your request.

==== Username@language-code project-name ====
I request removal of access.
*'''Language Code:''' xx
*'''Local Confirmation/Request Link:''' <!--Difflink of the local confirmation edit (for own requests), or link to the community decision-->
*'''Local User Page:''' [[xx:User:Example]]

Thank you. ~~~~

Please summarize your request in the "summary".

Yöklewçi @ tt Wikipedia

I request removal of Sysop and Bureaucrat flags. It's my old bot.

Thank you. Albert Fazlî 20:18, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done
This situation has been brought to other Stewards attention, since rights log on the wiki were not that clear.
May I recommend to User:Albert Fazlî to leave a note on renamed users and to clearly state where the account is a bot. Thank you, M/ 21:04, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Oysterguitarist@simplewiki

I request removal of access.

MelancholieBot@als.wiki

I (als:User:Melancholie, als:User:MelancholieBot) request removal of sysop rights for als:User:MelancholieBot as this was more or less an accident (see MediaZilla:13503).

Temporary permissions for emergency or technical purposes

If you are requesting administrator status to make a translation of the wiki interface, see also the BetaWiki project, which seeks to make a neutral MediaWiki translation that will then be default for all wikis. That is more useful than only making a local translation. You can ask questions in the IRC channel or in the mailing list. See also MediaWiki localisation. If you are requesting adminship to handle one-time vandalism incidents or clearing a deletion backlog, please see Vandalism reports and Multilingual speedy deletions.

Stewards: Currently active temporary permissions are listed at /Approved temporary. When granting a request, please copy the request to the appropriate section there, and clearly state the date of removal. 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.

Copy and paste the following text into the correct section. Fill in all the required fields -- language code, link to the list of sysops and bureaucrats, local request link, link to your local user page, and the preferred duration with a reason. Without this information, a steward cannot process your request.

==== Username@language-code project-name ====
I request temporary sysop access.
*'''Language Code:''' xx
*'''List of local sysops:''' [[xx:Special:Listadmins]]
*'''List of local bureaucrats:''' [[xx:Special:Listusers/bureaucrat]]
*'''Local Request Link:''' [[xx:Example]]
*'''Local User Page:''' [[xx:User:Example]]
*'''Preferred duration and reason:''' 
Thank you. ~~~~

Please summarize your request in the "summary".

Serhat@tr wikibooks

My temporary access is going to end at Mach, 27. I would like to be a permanent sysop. Here is the my temp-sysop access request. I request sysop access.

Thank you. Srhat 14:42, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

tr wikibooks still has a very small community, I think that a permanent sysopship wouldn't be the best solution. I propose to extend temp access further 6 months--Nick1915 - all you want 16:52, 22 March 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I accept it. I request to extend my temp sysop access further 6 months Srhat 06:11, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
Request moved to temporary permissions requests section. ~Kylu (u|t) 19:33, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done, expires 27 September 2008--Nick1915 - all you want 10:32, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Miscellaneous requests

Requests that don't fit in other sections belong here. Note that the following types of requests belong on separate pages: bot status, URL blacklisting and whitelisting, and requests for CheckUser queries. If you want to have your Meta username changed, please go to Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat. If you want to have changed a username on a Wikimedia wiki without bureaucrats, please go to Requests for username changes.(Existing requests have been moved to the appropriate page.)

Usurption@lbe.wikipedia

The following discussion is closed: done

So, with unified login created for administrators, I found that there was an account with my username and without my e-mail or password at lbe.wikipedia and the old WikiSource. Apparently, because the old WikiSource still has bureaucrats, I can't do much of that there here.

I registered as "Ryulong-en" at "lbe.wikipedia" within the past hour, and I request that lbe:User:Ryulong be usurped to my name.—Ryūlóng (竜龍) 07:02, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

done. —{admin} Pathoschild 07:06:17, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
