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.

Raju Babu@bh.wikipedia[edit]

At present there are two permanent admins on bh.wikipedia, i.e. User:Eukesh ji, and me (SM7). Because Eukesh has not been active for a long time, we need a helping hand in admin related works. Raju Babu has previously been admin (even before myself) twice (last temporary duration for a whole year) and is a trusted user. As we are a very small community please don't expect a lot of votes. Kindly grant him permanent sysop rights. Thanks. --SM7--talk-- 20:01, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Is there any issue or concern regarding this request? --SM7--talk-- 13:50, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
I can only grant for 1 year. Ruslik (talk) 20:38, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
Ruslik Ji, Last time he was granted with 1 year duration, but could not continue after expiration. That's why we were looking forward for permanent duration this time. Anyway, if only 1 year's duration is possible than that too will do. Thanks in advance. --SM7--talk-- 10:46, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
@SM7: I actually do see that he has been ever granted adminship on bhwiki in the past. Ruslik (talk) 20:27, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: There were two username changes in between, at that time his username was "Nepaboy" and then "गणेश कक्षे" just before this name.--SM7--talk-- 20:55, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Manik Soren@sat.wikipedia[edit]

Hello, Currently Santali Wikipedia has no Admin, I was the admin on temporary basis to fix some things for the newly made Santali Wikipedia. Now a community discussion was held upon my request for administrator. I hope you will consider my request and give me the rights as a administrator for future well-being of the Santali Wikipedia. Thanks --Manik Soren (talk) 16:53, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

This user was test-admin for the project in Incubator and handled the tools responsibly. He can be started at 6 months, rather than 3, if that is consistent with the local discussion. StevenJ81 (talk) 18:21, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Done Granted for 6 months to expire on 2019-03-22. Please remember to translate the interface at translatewiki.net only and preferably upload images to Wikimedia Commons. To prolong your 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.

I have been working on the Punjabi Wiktionary project for a long time. Which is being done online and offline.

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.

علاء@ar.wikinews[edit]

This RfA opened since 6 September 2018, and there's 8 supports (4 more than 100 edits -1 user with more than 5000 edits-). Per Wikinews Statistics, arwikinews is the 11th largest edition of Wikinews, with more than 7,330 content pages, more than 35 active users, 4 sysops, 17 bots, 32 rollbackers --Alaa :)..! 09:01, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

I don't know... there are four sysops, yes, but three of them have temporary admin rights at the moment. I feel this wiki is too small for local bureaucrats. Trijnsteltalk 12:49, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
@Trijnstel: we (arwikinews community) discussed about that, and we found that we need a local bureaucrat to deal with bots + admin interface issues, also some users mentioned that cswikinews (12th largest edition of Wikinews) and cawikinews (13th largest edition of Wikinews) have an active local bureaucrat. Also, "almost" all first 10 editions of Wikinews have at least one local bureaucrat. Finally, we opened this request based on arwikinews community opinions --Alaa :)..! 13:01, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
I agree with Trijnstel. --MF-W 14:48, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
I also think this project is still far too small to need local bureaucrats. RadiX 02:08, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
Not done. 8 supports (3 of them have less than 100 edits and most of voters aren't active recently) and 3 local admins (2 of them temporary). Active community isn't enough big to have a local bureaucrat for now. Matiia (talk) 16:51, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

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.

Felipe da Fonseca@pt.wikipedia[edit]

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.

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

Leaderboard@enwikibooks[edit]

As a sysop, I already have the standard import interface (transwiki import) where I can import from other en wikis. However, I need the importupload permission as well. This is because I often need to import from non-English projects (such as fr.wikibooks, for which the standard import option isn't available), and occasionally handle complex import cases for which the standard import facility does not suffice. Please let me know if this isn't possible. Thanks. Leaderboard (talk) 13:51, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

Have you considered adding projects such as frwikibooks to your wiki's import sources (requires a short community discussion + request at phabricator)? In any case, you will need to provide a link to a community discussion prior to being granted any further user rights by stewards. Kind regards, --Vogone (talk) 14:00, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
@Vogone: No; in any case, it's difficult to predict from which languages import may be required from. As for the community discussion, while I can certainly do it, is it really required? Considering that I'm already a sysop and have the general import permission... Leaderboard (talk) 14:18, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
Import is a 'super duper hyper' sensitive right, that requires community consensus, whether or not you have sysop. — regards, Revi 15:34, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
@-revi: Ok, will do so. Please keep this request on hold till then. Thanks. Leaderboard (talk) 16:00, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
@Leaderboard: any news? --Alaa :)..! 07:29, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Account deletion is not possible. If you are European resident and want to exercise your right to vanish under the GDPR, contact privacy@wikimedia.org. Stewards cannot assist with the GDPR cases. Thanks. — regards, Revi 14:22, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
