Request for an account on the Foundation wiki

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!

JSutherland (WMF) sorry, I already have those account , now I want to create an wikimedia account, not bangla wikipedia or wibooks account.-শাহাদাত সায়েম (talk) 17:34, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
Hi again শাহাদাত সায়েম - the Wikimedia Foundation wiki is actually kept mostly read-only, now—it doesn't work like the other Wikimedia projects. What are you planning to do on the Foundation's wiki? :) Joe Sutherland (WMF) (talk) 17:17, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Hi Rutusha89 - I'm not sure I understand. Accounts on Wikimedia projects don't have "display pictures". Could you please clarify what you mean? Thanks! Joe Sutherland (WMF) (talk) 14:18, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Reason why I need an account: There is a backlog of maintenance tasks (e.g. deletions) which I am willing to do. Please create an account for me with my current username. —Justin (koavf)TCM 21:50, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
    @JSutherland (WMF): Since it appears that you patrol this. —Justin (koavf)TCM 21:50, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
    I am not responsible for granting/rejecting requests, but please note volunteers generally are not granted admin access on foundationwiki. This means you would not be able to help with this backlog even if this request were granted. --Vogone (talk) 17:53, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
    Hey Koavf - unfortunately, Vogone above is right; volunteers aren't currently allowed to be administrators on the Foundation wiki. I'm happy to let you know if and when that changes, though. Joe Sutherland (WMF) (talk) 19:19, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
