Requests and proposals Steward requests (Permissions) 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.

Old sections are archived by a bot. Click here for a list of archives.

  • 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 (index).
  • For urgent requests, such as to combat large-scale vandalism on a small wiki, contact a steward in the #wikimedia-stewardsconnect IRC channel. In emergencies, type !steward in the channel to get the attention of stewards. Otherwise, you can type @steward for non-urgent help.

Other than requests to remove your own access or emergencies, please only make requests here after gaining the on-wiki approval of your local community.

Cross-wiki requests
Meta-Wiki requests

Using this page[edit]

1. Place the following code at the bottom of the appropriate section below:

==== User name@xxproject ====
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    = <!-- such as en.wikibooks -->
 |user name =
 |discussion= 
}}
(your remarks) ~~~~

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[edit]

Certain permissions (notably CheckUser and Oversight) additionally require users to sign a confidentiality agreement. Users requesting these permissions must make a request below, and must also sign the confidentiality agreement with the Wikimedia Foundation. The request is placed on hold temporarily, until the receipt has been formally confirmed by the Office.

Administrator access[edit]

See administrator for information about this user group.

Kaleem Bhatti@sd.wiktionary[edit]

(your remarks) Kaleem Bhatti (talk) 14:08, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

What permission do you want? Ruslik (talk) 20:28, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: I want administration at sd.Wiktionary because at sd.wiktionary is only 1 administration Kaleem Bhatti (talk) 03:31, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
Then you need to start a local discussion first. Ruslik (talk) 08:48, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: I have added local discussion link Kaleem Bhatti (talk) 15:04, 26 May 2019 (UTC)

Can you escape@ro.wikiquote[edit]


The only administrator has not been active since February 2017(which is more than 2 years ago), there are a lot of spam articles and I want to clear up the mess and possibly revive this. There are also no active members, so I can’t make a discussion on the local wikiquotes. With respect, Can you escape (talk) 18:11, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

can you link to some of these spam articles? They can easily be dealt with by a global sysop. Praxidicae (talk) 19:52, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
Sure!, https://ro.wikiquote.org/wiki/Ex_hoc_momento_pendet_aeternitas , https://ro.wikiquote.org/wiki/Ggga , https://ro.wikiquote.org/wiki/プレモノ_-_Yahoo!_JAPAN_PR企画 , https://ro.wikiquote.org/wiki/00a0a0 , https://ro.wikiquote.org/wiki/00nn001xx .There are most likely more, though ro.wikiquotes needs an administrator(even if it’s only temporary) to put things back on track. As I specified above, the current admin hasn’t made 1 edit in more than 2 years. The activity of the community is close to zero. Can you escape (talk) 20:17, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
I’m sure you can understand why people are skeptical given your very short tenure here. Praxidicae (talk) 21:17, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
Absolutely! I don’t think abusing would be a problem since the wiki is always being monitored. Can you escape (talk) 07:14, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment Comment You have been here two weeks, and otherwise have no evident history. Yet you are not a wiki-novice, so I would like to understand your previous wiki personalities. Much of wikiquote needs is activity and organisation, not administrators from what I can see. Requests for administration can be posted at SRM. [Noting that I have handled the deletion requests.]  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:30, 26 May 2019 (UTC)

Interface administrator access[edit]

See Interface admin for information about this user group.

  • If you are requesting adminship and the interface admin at the same time, you can file one request in administrator section and state you want interface adminship as well.
  • MediaWiki interface translations are done at translatewiki.net. Please do not request interface administrator access solely for that purpose; your request will be declined.
  • Since the end of 2018 all interface administrators are required to have two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled. Please, enable it before posting your request here.

  • Stewards: Please use {{Systmp}} for approved temporary requests.

Requests for removal of access should be posted at the section below.

For permanent interface adminship, please provide a link to the local community approval. For temporary interface adminship please state for how long and for which tasks you need it, and link to a local announcement.

দিব্য দত্ত@as.wikipedia[edit]

As there are only one Interface administrator in Assamese wikipedia, I would like to nominate myself for Interface administrator on permanent basis to perform some regular and necessary technical tasks. দিব্য দত্ত (talk) 05:11, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold Ruslik (talk) 09:52, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
@দিব্য দত্ত: Please, enable 2FA. Ruslik (talk) 20:26, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: activated. দিব্য দত্ত (talk) 01:41, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Ruslik (talk) 08:46, 26 May 2019 (UTC)

ezagren@bjn.wikipedia[edit]

Because bjn.wikipedia.org activities have increased and technical assignments are needed, I want to register as an interface sysop because there is only one administrator at Banjar Wikipedia. Ezagren (talk) 01:52, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold until 27 May 2019 Please, also enable 2FA. Ruslik (talk) 20:53, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

Bureaucrat access[edit]

See bureaucrat for information about this user group.
  • In principle, requests for temporary bureaucrat access are not granted.

Requests for removal of access should be posted at the section below.

CheckUser access[edit]

See CheckUser policy for information about this user group and the policy governing the use of this tool.
  • To request CheckUser information, see Steward requests/Checkuser. This is the place to request CheckUser access.
  • Temporary CheckUser access is not permitted and temporary access is only used by stewards.

Oversight access[edit]

See Oversight policy for information about this user group and the policy governing the use of this tool.
  • To request to have content oversighted, ask for a steward in #wikimedia-stewardsconnect and contact a steward privately. This section is for requesting access to the Oversight tool.
  • For contact details about oversighters across the wikis, refer to this page.
  • Note that temporary Oversight access is not permitted and temporary status is only used by stewards.

  • When a new user is assigned to this group, please add them to this list.

Removal of access[edit]

  • 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 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 separate list of these specific wikis.
  • See the instructions above for adding new requests. Please post new requests at the bottom of the section.

MIKHEIL@ka.wikipedia[edit]

According to local policy If an administrator within 3 months doesn't make 500 edits and 50 sysop actions, sysop rights will be removed without voting. In last three-month periods he has not made the required 500 edits; see 25 February—25 May (483 total). In Georgian Wikipedia, Bureaucrats can't remove sysop rights, and therefore I apply to stewards on Meta-Wiki. Best regards, გიო ოქრო (talk) 19:54, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

@გიო ოქრო: Should the bureaucrat right be removed as well? Ruslik (talk) 08:57, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: No, because that rule don't includes bureaucrat right. გიო ოქრო (talk) 09:10, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
@გიო ოქრო: Bureaucrats override admins for they can grant people admins. Chances are that once a steward removes the admin access of MIKHEIL, it could be soon granted by MIKHEIL themselves. --Super Wang hates PC You hate, too? 09:29, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
@Super Wang: Yes, there are. But I think MIKHEIL will not do it. I just apply you about the administrator right. Do it as you decide. გიო ოქრო (talk) 12:22, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
Administrator rights from Mikheil can be taken away only after filing an request in the Georgian Wikipedia and after discussion there can be administrative actions. So, while at the local level the issue is not resolved there is nothing to discuss. I'm waiting for request at the local level, and without the decision of the local community, the administrative actions of the steward are not welcomed. --Mehman 97 13:34, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
„If an administrator within 3 months doesn't make 500 edits and 50 sysop actions, sysop rights will be removed without voting (automatically)“ — There is no need for discussion. Georgian Bureaucrats can't remove sysop rights. გიო ოქრო (talk) 13:49, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
ვიკიპედია:ადმინისტრატორები/ადმინისტრატორის_სტატუსის_მოხსნა — It is not written that I don't have the right to request on Meta and I have to request in the local wiki first. გიო ოქრო (talk) 13:56, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
In 2014 MIKHEIL himself applied to Meta-Wiki and demanded to resign 4 administrators (Zangala, BRUTE, Giorgi13, Island). He did not make any request in Georgian Wikipedia and directly wrote a resignation request. He indicated only the discussion of introduction of the rule. There was no local discussion. Now, when there is rule, there is no need for local discussion. Best regards გიო ოქრო (talk) 15:04, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
2014 case there was a discussion and elections where they took the appropriate decision (please do not mislead people). When the question is about 17 editing and because of this, asking for removing status, perhaps a discussion is required here. Without a local discussion, the status cannot be removing and everyone should respect the decision of the local community, no one has the right to bypass the opinion of the community. This is not a place for discussion, so submit request at the local level and continue the discussion there. Kindly, --Mehman 97 15:14, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
Repeat the same: „If an administrator within 3 months does not make 500 edits and 50 sysop actions, sysop rights will be removed without voting (automatic)- There is no need for discussion and community can not stop resignation if sysop has not made the required 500 edits. Show me rule that says, that I can't apply to Meta-Wiki. გიო ოქრო (talk) 15:19, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
For context stewards might want to review Requests for comment/Vote of confidence on sysops and unblock for user Deu on kawiki. And good luck to whomever makes a call on this. --Rschen7754 15:48, 26 May 2019 (UTC)

Miscellaneous requests[edit]

Requests for permissions that don't fit in other sections belong here. Importer rights can be granted on most wikis by stewards only. Please gain local community consensus before posting a new section here.

Note that the following types of permissions requests belong on separate pages:

  • SRB — Local or global bot status
  • SRGP — Global permissions

Capankajsmilyo[edit]

Status:    In progress

I want request for import rights so that I can perform imports of modules and templates across wikis. Please help. Thanks Capankajsmilyo (talk) 23:03, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

Import requires special discussion with the community you want to hold the permission. — regards, Revi 19:24, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
