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.

User YAniceta@pap.wikipedia[edit]

(Since there is only 1 other moderator on the Papiamentu Wikipedia, who is not active currently, I want to request the administrator rights. Given the fact that in a few weeks we want to start with activities on the Papiamentu Wikipedia, it would help us this can be done as soon as possible ) YAniceta (talk) 23:34, 23 April 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.

JogiAsad@sd.wiktionary[edit]

Hi, I want to create MediaWiki gadgets for Sindhi Wiktionary and other related tasks, kindly grant me Interface Admin rights permanently, because there is no other such admin. Thanks JogiAsad (talk) 14:35, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

L2212@sc.wikipedia[edit]

Hi, I would like to have permanent interface administrator access. There is not an interface administrator on sc.wiki yet, and we need to edit some code. I've already enabled 2FA for my account.--L2212 (talk) 17:35, 24 April 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.

Neozoon@dewiki[edit]

per local policy. User has not started a re-election within 30 days as requested by a quorum of 25 users. 30 days period has ended at midnight (CEST). Groetjes -- Dschungelfan (talk) 22:35, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

The deadline is not yet, please wait. --Funkruf (talk) 15:15, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
Dear stewards! Please don't get tricked by User:Funkruf. He is spreading fake news. As you can easily see on the page linked above, the quorum of 25 users asking Neozoon to start a re-election was reached on 23rd March 2019. Per local policy Neozoon had 30 days to follow this request. The 30th day was 22nd April 2019. @Reiner Stoppok: -- Dschungelfan (talk) 18:15, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, thats my fault. Dschungelfan has right. The problem was, that nobody protected the site. The side protection request was done by me until about midnight. And so it was falsely noted on March 24th. With the result: deadline on April 23, which of course must be a day earlier. --Funkruf (talk) 20:53, 23 April 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 Ankry@oldwikisource[edit]

I know that the above discussion is quite fresh, but I am creating this request in advance to refer to it elsewhere.
I ask for the importer right for longer period (at least 3 months, if they cannot be granted permanently) as there are various repeated needs for massive import of texts to oldwikisource from various wikis. Mainly related to difference in wiki copyright rules; some examples of such needs listed in the above-mentioned discussion. Some of the imports are time consuming, some require interproject coordination, they need time. Doing the imports by admins is not possible for some wikis and a pain if massive import is needed. I have experience with using this right in mul.ws and pl.ws. Ankry (talk) 09:43, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold until 24 April 2019 Ruslik (talk) 20:25, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done for 6 months. Ruslik (talk) 20:54, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

importer for Tigerzeng@zhwikibooks[edit]

There are two supports in two weeks and the permission might be granted temporarily. cc @Tigerzeng --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 13:51, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

  • It seems that Tiger was actually requesting for transwiki importer permission. Can this permission be granted pernamently instead?--94rain Talk 14:29, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
  • 导入者=importer, +importupload. 跨维基导入者=transwiki, +transwiki. --Cohaf (talk) 14:36, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
    • Tiger wrote on that local page to request for transwiki permission (申请跨维基导入权) actually. I found that Subscriptshoe9 (formerly James970028) and Stang also requested for importer permission but they were granted transwiki permission.--94rain Talk 14:58, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Understand the difference between importer and transwiki importer. I will mainly, or only work on transwiki import. Only in very rare cases, I will have to import via upload when there's technical problems stopping me from transwiki importing (If I have that right).--Tiger (talk) 15:07, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
  • You mentioned temporarily, how long do you think you will need it? — regards, Revi 21:29, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
