Requests and proposals Request an account on Foundation wiki Archives (current)
This page is for requesting the creation of a user account on the Wikimedia Foundation's website (not on any other wiki).
  1. To ensure that users are already familiar with the policies of at least one Wikimedia project, those applying for an account should be administrators or active editors in good standing [on any Wikimedia wiki], particularly active editors and translators on Meta and movement-level projects, or members of a Wikimedia committee or Chapter. Creation of an account is not automatic and is subject to approval.
  2. To ensure that requests are not forged, only registered users on Meta can submit requests. Please keep this page on your watchlist and check back on your request; you may be asked for more information before a request is accepted or rejected. If you do not respond, your request may be removed.
  3. After seeing your request fulfilled, please archive your section. Thanks!
Request an account

Please provide:

  • your username, with a link to a Wikimedia project where you are an admin or the names of the committee(s) or local chapters of which you are a member
  • a valid email address (not Special:Emailuser. We need a valid e-mail address to plug into the "create an account by e-mail" form.)
  • the reason(s) you need an account
  • your dated signature

Please note: You do not need an account on the Foundation wiki to help with most translations, and requests for accounts simply to translate will be denied. Translation work is done here on Meta-Wiki so that many people can collaborate and so that pages can be proofread before being published. If you wish to apply to do "WikiGnome work" please first spend time being active on Foundation wiki feedback or other Meta-/Foundation-level projects.

Thank you for your interest!

Hello AJ Gaspar - I hope you don't mind, but I merged this request with your first. Are you sure you need an account to edit the Foundation wiki? It sounds like you want to propose a project instead. You can do this here on Meta-Wiki by going to Proposals for new projects. Thanks! Joe Sutherland (WMF) (talk) 19:10, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Reason why I need an account: I am currently the Outreach Coordinator for the Nigerian Usergroup. I need an account to be able to share relevant news and activities within my community (such as outreach programs, edit-a-thons, GLAM projects, contests etc).--Jamie Tubers (talk) 19:20, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
    • Hi Jamie Tubers! Can I ask what your reasoning is for doing this on the Foundation wiki? It sounds like something that is best done on this wiki ("Meta-Wiki"). Joe Sutherland (WMF) (talk) 23:07, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
      • Hello, I know this platform is appropriate for the elaborate pages on these projects; however, I feel it is also important to have the presence of the news on the foundation wiki as well. Regards.--Jamie Tubers (talk) 00:13, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
        • Hi again Jamie Tubers - I don't know if the Foundation wiki is the best place for this sort of thing. Perhaps you would like to investigate Outreach wiki instead? I'm sorry to provide a blocker here but I'm not sure there is a precedent for community organisation on the Foundation wiki. Joe Sutherland (WMF) (talk) 19:41, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
          • Hello, are you saying news related to Wikimedia activities on the African continent is not allowed on the foundation wiki? While I see news about major projects and events all across the world, WikiIndaba has no presence, same for projects like Wiki Loves Africa. I've also seen some nice write ups about issues affecting Wikimedia in different parts of the world and progress being made, Africa is scarcely represented. I haven't seen one about Nigeria. So, is that the point you're making? If yes, kindly summarize to me, the purpose of the Foundation Wiki, that's inclusive of the African community. Thanks.--Jamie Tubers (talk) 08:37, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
