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.

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.

Mirzali@diq.wikipedia[edit]

We need an admin in Zazaki Wikipedia, who will hep us. Mirzali is cut out for this job, he helps a lot and he is doing a very good job. Vuzorg (talk) 19:28, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

Mirzali is editing the articles of Zazaki Wikipedia for years with diligence and accuracy. As an admin he would be a great help for us other admins. --Asmeno (talk) 20:52, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Please, start a local discussion and place a link to it here. Ruslik (talk) 08:48, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Vuzorg, do you have an explanation on what is going on in that discussion? While I think it is valid in general, as there are genuine contributors voting, I also see it being overwhelmed by people who seem to have specifically registered to leave their vote on that page. Was there some call on social media given? In general it is a very discouraged practice. It is absolutely fine if there are few voters, but those voters should be community members. --Base (talk) 02:10, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
Dear Base! This is a new kind of sabotage. Some people don't seem to want to grow up. Where they once used to attack directly and to accuse wrongly, now they apply a new tactic. Unfortunately, this is our dilema for years in this project. I don't want to do any dirty laundry, but to clarify the matter, I have to mention some incidents of the past.
First, there is an admin who has not contributed for years. That's why he was once disempowered by the administration. However, he regained his administrative rights by lying and cheating, addressing the Kurds who supported him.
Second, there is someone who is constantly on riots with us. He uses multiple usernames and makes a mess, though he's not nearly proficient in that language. For that reason, he was also permanently blocked, which ultimately had no effect. Because he still interferes under different names.
Now a few things to me, I am one of the founders who has been involved in this project since 2006. I was also one of the administrators at the beginning. However, I was banished by the administration because I had to deal with the above mentioned persons all the time. Again, they have taken advantage of the support of the Kurds. Not to mention whether the supporters were members or not, was not important to them. The main thing is that they have reached their goal with lies and deception.
I don't know exactly who is hiding among the non-members of the community. Whether this is a game of the above mentioned persons, or even again a participation of the Kurds, I don't know as I said. However, one thing is clear, that they are at work again with their craftiness.
I hope that under these circumstances you will still make a positive decision for me. It's not about my own person, but the project is even more important to me to get on with it. With best regards! -- Mirzali (talk) 10:54, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
The main reason why you was desysoped in the past was the abuse of adminship by you. What have you done to address those concerns? Ruslik (talk) 19:07, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
Dear Ruslik! The duty of an administrator is also the protection of the project. Should I have the project stopped by incompetent people of the language? Not to mention all slander, accusations and insults. I still have not taken it personally. It's just about the further development of the project. Every useful contribution must be considered and used. Nevertheless, each language has its own spelling and grammar. We also have the right to correct the mistakes. This can't be done by alleged Zazas who don't speak the language, nor by the Kurds. And when I made corrections every time, they accused me of abusing my adminship. If this is considered a personal insult or rejection, I do not know how to proceed. With best regards! -- Mirzali (talk) 14:45, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

Roy17@gan.wikipedia[edit]

I volunteer to take care of this project on a temporary basis. I plan to do this as long as necessary until Gan users turn up to manage on their own.--Roy17 (talk) 11:32, 17 November 2019 (UTC)

Done Granted for 3 months to expire on 2020-02-19. To prolong your (interface) adminship, please start another election a few days before your temporary access expires, and after a week post your request again to this page. Thanks. Ruslik (talk) 20:44, 19 November 2019 (UTC)

Gilles2014@ht.wikipedia[edit]

Hello, currently Haitian creole Wikipedia has no admin. I have already been an admin on this wiki twice 6 months. I avoided vandalism. The community vote ended with no objection. I usually contribute every day on this wikipedia. I want to be an admin for 1 year. I hope you will consider my request favorably.--Gilles2014 (talk) 10:22, 19 November 2019 (UTC)

Done Granted for 1 year to expire on 2020-11-19. Ruslik (talk) 20:47, 19 November 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.

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.

Siddhartha Ghai@hiwikipedia[edit]

By our policy which can be seen in the given link (point no. 2) an administrator needs to have 180 edits in previous 6 months. The user here doesn't meet this requirement. He is not active since Jan, 2019. Now, Interface Administrator and Administrator flags should be removed from his user account as per hindi wiki policy. Ravishdutta (talk) 11:03, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Ruslik (talk) 20:50, 19 November 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

Importer for Rowe Wilson Frederisk Holme@zhwikibooks[edit]

Two supports in two weeks. Requesting for transwiki importer for a 1-year period. (Sorry for submitting this request so late, and is this request still valid or expired? )--Sayonzei (talk) 03:38, 17 November 2019 (UTC)

He is requesting for Importer right (importupload) instead of transwiki importer. --Xiplus (talk) 03:52, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
Yes. It should be Importer(import and importupload permissions).--Rowe Wilson Frederisk Holme (talk) 14:30, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
