Requests and proposals Requests for adminship on Meta Archives
This page hosts requests for administrator access on the Meta-Wiki; for requesting administrator access on any other wiki, please see the index of request and proposal pages, where a Steward can do the job if required. Bureaucrat, checkuser and bot requests are also made here. Before making a request here, please see the administrator policy.

Requests should be listed here for at least seven days; bureaucrats should only close after this minimum time. Discussions are not closed early. Adminship will be granted by a support ratio of at least 75%. If a request hasn't been addressed by a bureaucrat after a lengthy period of time, please leave a note at Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat. Requests may be extended, or put on hold by bureaucrats, pending decision or finding of consensus.

Requests for temporary adminship and bot requests may be less formal and often go for a shorter duration if consensus becomes clear after only a few days of discussion.

All editors with an account on Meta, at least one active account on any Wikimedia project, and a link between the two, may participate in any request and give their opinion of the candidate. However, more active Meta editors' opinions may be given additional weight in controversial cases.

See below for information on prerequisites on submitting a request, and how to add a nomination.

Information

Note that this page is for access on Meta only. See the Steward requests/Permissions page for adminship/deadminship requests on other projects.

Regular adminship

  1. Before requesting admin access, please ensure you meet all of the minimum criteria:
    • Have a user page on Meta, with links to the user pages on other participated projects. This can state that SUL is activated or be provided via a Wiki matrix if that is not possible.
    • Have a valid contact address (either a confirmed email address in preferences, or a valid email address on the user page).
    • Be a currently active contributor on Meta. This is a subjective, not an objective, measure and there is no official post count.
  2. As Meta has a cross-wiki role, admins here are expected to have cross wiki experience. SUL confirmation or a matrix will ensure that editing on other wikis can be easily seen. It would be expected that those seeking adminship here would have both reasonable experience here and on other wikis.
  3. Given the multi-lingual nature of Meta, {{#babel:}} information will be of use to others.
  4. Place a request on this page, by transcluding a subpage, for example {{Meta:Requests for adminship/Example}}. Please put the newest request on the top. Bear in mind that even if you do meet the criteria above this does not mean that the community will automatically approve a request. Please add a minimum ending date to the election, allowing a full 7 day period from the first timestamp:
    ''Ending {{subst:#time:j F Y H:i|+1 week}} (UTC)''
    
  5. Please note, past administrators who have given up their rights must meet all criteria at the time of the new request. There is no separate process for reinstating past administrators.

Please note: Ill-considered nominations for adminship can be draining and deflating to both the community and the candidate. Any successful candidate will need to be able to demonstrate sufficient experience within the Wikimedia community, in addition to a familiarity with Meta-Wiki. If a candidate is not already a local administrator or holder of advanced permissions on a Wikimedia content project, he or she is less likely to pass a request for adminship here at Meta-Wiki.

Bureaucratship

Add your request below under the bureaucratship section. Please note:

  • Only active administrators can become bureaucrats, and only after at least 6 months of regular adminship.
  • User is endorsed by two current bureaucrats after he/she nominates themselves here.

If you fail any of these requirements, you will not be assigned the bureaucrat flag. For more information see Meta:Bureaucrats.

Other access

For these types of access, create a subpage just as you would for regular adminship and add it to the appropriate section of this page.
  • Limited adminship: If you need sysop access for a particular reason (such as ability to edit protected pages), you may request limited adminship on Meta. If granted, the user understands that they will only be allowed to use the tools for the tasks they were approved, and not doing so will be grounds for immediate removal. Temporary sysop access will normally be valid for one month unless requested and granted otherwise.
  • Bot: Please read the bot policy. This wiki allows global bots and automatic approval of certain types of bots; for other bots, add your request below under the bot section, in the same way as an admin request.
  • CheckUser: please read the CheckUser policy and add your request below under the checkuser section, in the same way as an admin request.
  • Oversight: please read the Oversight policy and add your request below under the oversight section, in the same way as an admin request.
  • Translation administrator: please read Meta:Translation administrator and Meta:Translate extension. No fixed time limit for these requests is defined, and there are no particular requirements; if you provide a valid reason your request will be granted.
  • Centralnotice administrator: was added as a way to avoid granting the full administrator rights package to those who primarily only need to edit banner campaigns. Because of the potentially huge impact of banners on the wikis, this should be granted carefully and sparingly.
For these types of access, just ask on Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat.
  • MassMessage sender: please read about MassMessage, and provide a clear reason for requesting access. Specify a duration, or specifically request ongoing if needed.
  • Uploaders
Global renamer permissions are handled at Steward requests/Global permissions.

Requests for translation adminship

Psubhashish

Hi, I would like to request to provide me the admin rights as I am adding translations to our newly approved user group. It being new, we are going to add a lot many new pages and I would need use the rights on a regular basis. I have gone through the extension documentation. I am already active as a Wikipedia admin on Odia Wikipedia, and have been translating many site notice banners and am one of the most active localizers on Translatewiki. --Subhashish Panigrahi (talk) 10:42, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

  • Support Support Trusted editor. -- Tito Dutta (talk) 19:08, 6 July 2017 (UTC)
  • Support SupportAlvaro Molina ( - ) 22:50, 6 July 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support --Zerabat (discusión) 14:37, 9 July 2017 (UTC) Trusted editor. As said, Psubhashish will need to create or mark a lot of translations, and giving the permission will reduce the work load of the other Translation admins.
  • Question Question: Have you read the docs and understand how the system works? There are very experienced translation admins such as Base who you can ask for help in case of doubts. —MarcoAurelio 11:17, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks all the friends who trusted on and endorsed me. @MarcoAurelio:, yes, I have gone through the docs. I don't have any particular question right now. But if I have any, I'll certainly reach out to you and other colleagues. --Subhashish Panigrahi (talk) 12:29, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
Hi. Have you markedprepared any page for translation? if yes, could you please give some examples? Matiia (talk) 23:42, 12 July 2017 (UTC)
Hi @Matiia:, I have marked pafes for translation in the past. Recently I marked this one. --Subhashish Panigrahi (talk) 03:21, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
Grr, I meant to say prepared, not marked. Thanks for the link. It would be nice if you can use <tvar|></> with links and not to have so many paragraphs together in a unit translation, it's easier to translate. Could you please apply this changes to that page? Matiia (talk) 03:30, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
Psubhashish, and also Titodutta as the one marking that one for translation: could you compare Special:Permalink/16967572 with mw:Help:Extension:Translate/Page translation example/mw:Help:Extension:Translate/Page translation administration and tell here what was and is wrong there, first of all at the interface of titles and paragraphs? --Base (talk) 22:12, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
Re-pinging Titodutta as there was a typo in your username in my comment above. --Base (talk) 22:14, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
  • Question Question: Did you ask for admin rights or translation admin rights?--AldNonymousBicara? 19:27, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
