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:

==== Username@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.

Requests[edit]

COPY THE FOLLOWING CODE to the bottom of the appropriate section below:

==== User name@xxproject ====
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    =
 |user name =
 |discussion= 
}}

Administrator access[edit]

See Administrator for information about this user group.

  • MediaWiki interface translations are done at translatewiki.net. Please do not request administrator access solely for that purpose; your request will be declined.

  • Stewards: Please use {{Systmp}} for approved temporary requests.

Requests for removal of access should be posted at the section below.

Please start a new discussion about requesting the permission on the local village pump, administrators' noticeboard or a designated page for requesting permissions each time you request or renew adminship.

  • Discussions should be open for seven days. Please request adminship here seven days after discussions started. This page is not the place for any discussions or votes. (For wikis with few active users, it is OK to have no comments.)
  • If you only want adminship for specific tasks, please state for how long and for which tasks you need it. Otherwise stewards will decide whether to assign permanent adminship and the duration of adminship. See Steward requests/Permissions/Minimum voting requirements.

Kenny McFly@kl.wikipedia.org[edit]

I had admin rights in the Greenlandic Wikipedia until august 2020 and didn't ask for them being prolonged. I would like to become admin in the Greenlandic Wikipedia again, since I am the only user that can read and write in Greenlandic (which I am studying at university), and now while the corona situation is getting better again, I want to proceed my work for vitalizing this wiki by working together with local people. (It does not really make sense that there are admins there that don't know Greenlandic, but I am not, since I do.) --Kenny McFly (talk) 15:17, 3 June 2021 (UTC)

Kenny McFly, please do start a discussion and wait for a week after it starts. I do realise it sounds pointless, but we want to make sure that there is an opportunity given for people to participate, even if those people are off the radar at the moment. It is not a problem if no one participates after all, so do not worry. --Base (talk) 08:06, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
Thanks. I have asked here now, if someone is against. --Kenny McFly (talk) 08:43, 4 June 2021 (UTC)

Done Granted for 1 year to expire on 2022-06-12. 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. Previous term doubled. —DerHexer (Talk) 10:34, 12 June 2021 (UTC)

Reda Kerbouche@shy.wiktionary[edit]

Hello, I was the only admin in the test project from 2018 and after the creation of the project I was temporarily syspo. I wish to continue to be the admin (but not for just one year for a temporary duration) there because I know all that I have done, and if there is a problem I can resolve it quickly. Note that we have at this moment only 5 active users (me +4) and 3 of the 4 voted. in minimum 50% of the community is supporting me. thank you in advance--Reda Kerbouche (talk) 13:18, 4 June 2021 (UTC)

Katariq@qu.wikipedia[edit]

Seven months ago, I get admin rights in the Quechua Wikipedia, my period ended, and I ask the community for a prolongation. I would like to request both admin and interface admin grants. I am a native Quechua speaker, and I made a lot of improvements in that Wiki. I would like to continue with this work. Thank you very much--Katariq (talk) 04:36, 5 June 2021 (UTC)

I have done the administrator flag, but you need Help:2FA enabled for interface administrator. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 13:30, 5 June 2021 (UTC)
@Katariq Please see Amanda's note above. Martin Urbanec (talk) 06:43, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done for admin, X mark.svg Not done for IA (not meeting WMF policy on interface adminship). --Martin Urbanec (talk) 10:30, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
Excuse me , I just saw today this. I needed to reply this, but it seems too late: "I would like to inform you that the oathauth user right is not enabled for me". Thank you for your consideration anyways.--Katariq (talk) 4:11, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
@Katariq: Given that you're an admin at quwiki now, you may enable 2FA at qu:Special:OATH. Please take a look at H:2FA first though. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:21, 12 June 2021 (UTC)

HitomiAkane@arz.wikipedia[edit]

I've been developing arzwiki for almost two years now, getting a sysop privilege would help me do more to the project and keep protecting it from vandalism, Thank you in advance. HitomiAkane (talk) 06:13, 8 June 2021 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold pending internal discussion in the steward group. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 06:47, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
Done Granted for 3 months to expire on 2021-09-11. 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. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 18:44, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

Erokhin@ru.wikibooks[edit]

We need a permanent administrator. There is a lot of admin's work to be done in this project. Last. --Erokhin (talk) 14:32, 11 June 2021 (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.

Please start a new discussion about requesting the permission on the local village pump, administrators' noticeboard or a designated page for requesting permissions each time you request or renew interface adminship.

  • Discussions should be open for seven days. Please request interface adminship here seven days after discussions started. This page is not the place for any discussions or votes. (For wikis with few active users, it is OK to have no comments.)
  • If you only want interface adminship for specific tasks, please state for how long and for which tasks you need it. Otherwise stewards will decide whether to assign permanent interface adminship and the duration of interface adminship. See Steward requests/Permissions/Minimum voting requirements.

Bureaucrat access[edit]

See Bureaucrat for information about this user group.
  • In principle, requests for temporary bureaucrat access are not granted.
  • A small project does not need bureaucrats. Currently whether a promotion is valid or not is decided by stewards. See here for a guideline.

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, provide a link to the discussion, with 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.
  • To request the removal of another user's permissions for inactivity, link to your local inactivity policy. If your site does not have inactivity policy, the global policy Admin activity review applies.
  • 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
