Requests and proposals Steward requests (Permissions) latest archive
Shortcut:
SRP

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.

  • Requests for bot flags are handled at SRB, and requests for global permissions are handled at SRGP.
  • 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.

Olugold@ig.wikipedia[edit]

This request has been open for more than 7 days, and shows strong support. WhatamIdoing (talk) 05:36, 26 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@WhatamIdoing: It seems this request never made it to the main RfA page. Was it advertised anywhere else per MVR? -- Amanda (she/her) 14:31, 26 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Olugold, could you make sure that your nomination is properly transcluded at w:ig:Wikipedia:Requests for adminship? Time2wait.svg On hold for now. --Base (talk) 12:30, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Base Done. Thank you! Olugold (talk) 14:10, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks! Time2wait.svg Let's wait until February 4th so that everyone can have a week to participate. --Base (talk) 14:21, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Brazal.dang@bcl.wiktionary[edit]

My administrator role will end soon. Hoping to be able to continue guarding the project while the community continues to grow. Also, I would like to apply for an interface administrator as well. Imelda (Talk) 06:11, 26 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Time2wait.svg On hold until the 2nd February. -- Amanda (she/her) 14:27, 26 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

ঈশান জ্যোতি বৰা@as.wikisource[edit]

I would like to nominate myself for the admin and interface rights in Assamese Wikisource for a period of 6 months to perform some necessary tasks. My nomination is supported by fellow wikipedians of our community. Thank You. ঈশান জ্যোতি বৰা (talk) 09:39, 27 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Besides this needing 7 days, why were four support votes inserted with your nomination? [1] -- Amanda (she/her) 15:17, 27 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
It seems that the votes were copied from s:as:ৱিকিউৎস:কেন্দ্ৰীয় আলোচনা/সংৰক্ষণ/২০২২. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 16:07, 27 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Ahh ok, Time2wait.svg On hold until 3 February. -- Amanda (she/her) 01:21, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh: It's because the discussion was started in an archive page by mistake. You can check the history if you want. Thank you. -chanakyakdas (talk) 12:15, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Axel xadolik@avk.wikipedia[edit]

We have set up a voting procedure to renew/appoint the administrators of avk.wikipedia.org, present on the Doda (Community) page. A consultation has been launched. We solicited contributors (Wikiscan users) with more than 50 contributions and set as criteria :

  1. Voting deadline: 14 days from the first recorded vote;
  2. General voting quorum: minimum 5 votes;
  3. Minimum affirmative vote: 5 votes;
  4. Validity of affirmative votes: two-thirds (e.g. 7/10, 7 affirmative and 3 negative maximum);
  5. Qualification to vote: having contributed at least 50 times to avk.wikipedia.org;
  6. Applicants must have made at least 200 contributions to avk.wikipedia.org;
  7. Nobody can vote for him/herself.

We believe that these criteria are quite objective and reasonable to designate/renew responsible admins.
The procedure started on 13 January. Three contributors (Axel xadolik and ClaudiaVisentini for renewing and An-tiushpa as new) have proposed themselves as administrators. After 14 days of voting, these three persons were approved in accordance with the voting criteria and the entire procedure was followed. We therefore believe that these 3 persons must be validated or renewed by Wikimedia as administrators of the avk.wikipedia project. Copy to MF-Warburg for Langcom. Thank you. Regards. Nevatovol (talk) 08:04, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

What is the requested duration of the term? Ruslik (talk) 21:01, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

ClaudiaVisentini@avk.wikipedia[edit]

See above. Thanks. Nevatovol (talk) 08:04, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

An-tiushpa@avk.wikipedia[edit]

See above. Thanks. Nevatovol (talk) 08:04, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

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.

Ideophagous@arywikipedia[edit]

I already have adminship on arywiki, and I'm requesting interface administrator permissions, so I can fulfill some tasks on the Mediawiki namespace, namely adapting the enwiki file uploader for arywiki, which requires changes in Javascript. -- Ideophagous (talk) 07:45, 27 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Ideophagous: As you can see in the box above, 2FA must be activated before the IA flag is granted. Please activate it. --Sotiale (talk) 12:56, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Sotiale: it's done. --Ideophagous (talk) 14:06, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Done. --Sotiale (talk) 01:41, 29 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

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 .

صالح@arwiki[edit]

--جار الله (talk) 10:53, 5 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Time2wait.svg On hold pending signature of the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information (see instructions). —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:54, 5 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hello @جار الله, this is a reminder that you need to sign the confidentiality agreement before being assigned checkuser right. Best, Martin Urbanec (talk) 17:07, 9 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hello @Martin Urbanec @صالح needs to sign the confidentiality agreement and he told me that he did. Best. جار الله (talk) 18:03, 9 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry, thought it was a self-requested permission (I'm not very good at reading Arabic). It's great the agreement is signed. Let's wait for the noticeboard update then. Martin Urbanec (talk) 18:54, 9 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
The process between signage and the noticeboard update can have noticeable delays, due to the Office take time to review... Thingofme (talk) 02:42, 16 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hm, I see that there is now signature for جار الله but not for صالح. صالح, could you confirm you have signed the agreement, please? --Base (talk) 10:55, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Base: See the mailing list. --Sotiale (talk) 13:05, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

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.

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

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.

Horus@thwiki[edit]

Due to increased toxicity and complicated situations in Thai Wikipedia and my relative inactivity, it is better not to put myself in any more trouble that isn't worth it. It is my pleasure serving as admin, and I'm sure the project will live on without me. Horus (talk) 09:55, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Time2wait.svg On hold for 1 day, standard for resignation of advanced permissions. @Horus: Please make sure you want to revoke both admin flag and interface admin flag. Thank you for your 10 years+ service. --Sotiale (talk) 10:00, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, both admin and interface admin, please. Horus (talk) 10:11, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Interface admin can be removed by local bureaucrats as they have this ability. Please seek them out to remove it. We'll process the admin portion in due time. -- Amanda (she/her) 14:37, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
