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.

Requests[edit]

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

==== User name@xxproject ====

 |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.

For permanent adminship, please provide a link to the local community approval. For temporary adminship please state for how long and for which tasks you need it, and link to a local announcement.

Gustave London@st.wikipedia[edit]

I know the local language and the tool will help me a lot Gustave London (talk) 15:17, 11 August 2019 (UTC)

You have only one edit on this project. What exactly are the tools needed for? Praxidicae (talk) 15:25, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
Disposal and protection Gustave London (talk) 15:31, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
Can you give a few examples of what needs to be deleted and/or protected currently? Praxidicae (talk) 15:35, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
Please, create a local discussion and link it here. Ruslik (talk) 13:26, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

Ymnes@nl.wikinews (temp)[edit]

Can I have my admin rights back for just a short moment (rest of August) to cover the vacation period of De Wikischim. And can it be done right now, without waiting a week? I was chosen, and if I hadn't wihthdrawn (see here) my rights would still have been there. It's just to be able to remove vandalism right away. I hope for a quick response. Thanks in advance. Ymnes (talk) 09:56, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

SRP is request only without votings. Please conduct your vote on your wiki. — regards, Revi 12:16, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
Unfortunately, once you relinquish your permission, it is gone, and the 7 days discussion is a requirement. I don't mind if some other stewards want to override me and IAR grant them for short periods, though. — regards, Revi 12:16, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
@-revi: That voting round and de period of 7 days have yet been there in november 2018, see here. De Wikischim will have vacation (holiday) within shortly and I'm only giving him a backup, in order to keep the project clean from spam and vandalism. Ymnes (talk) 13:47, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
Revi- has holiday since today[1]
If I should really wait a week, please can you name me the page where I can report vandalism in case that happens meanwhile? I have been trusted the rights several times before though (nl. aswell as li. - but I don't want them structurally for personal reasons). Ymnes (talk) 17:11, 10 August 2019 (UTC)
Help of steward needed
It's English language spam on nl.wikinews that needs to be speedy deleted. Ymnes (talk) 05:57, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
Help of steward needed
Please erase this spam too
Please understand that I'm just covering the vacation (holiday) period of De Wikischim, and: that I would still have been an administrator if I hadn't handed in my own rights voluntarily (so there has been a voting (6-0) then yet and now for the second time a period of 7 days). And that the administrator De Wikischim here above supports my adminship for August too (he even mailed me to ask to pick it up permanently, but I don't want that myself).
Please grant me the rights and act in favour of Wikinews. That's the only thing asked! Ymnes (talk) 05:18, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, but you have continued this fruitless discussion on this board (where by the way there should not be any discussions) for eight days. If you had filed a request on your wiki eight days ago, you would have already been made a sysop (most likely). Ruslik (talk) 09:29, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
Excuses me, but your acting as if I'm nagging. That's a very wrong interpretation, when my only objective is to help a few weeks out during the vacation of the predominantly active administrator, and than to be gone there again. My main focus is on a project on Wikipedia anyway, not on Wikinews... And first of all, there isn't even a discussion here, not even a talk. I didn't even get an answer where to place requests to stewards instead. Ymnes (talk) 14:50, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
Since nlwikinews is a small wiki, Global Sysop can act if needed as well as stewards in clear cut cases of vandalism, spam and etc....you can request their help using SRM. Regards,--Cohaf (talk) 14:56, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
@Cohaf: thanks at least for mentioning this, I was waiting on this answer alone yet for a couple of days.
- My request here fulfils all requirements, though. 6-0 was the result of a voting that took place less than a year ago. That's not something to be neglected. Bye. Ymnes (talk) 15:10, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
This one can be removed. The admin is back, as I yet stated beforehand (as I asked for the rights just during his holiday). Ymnes (talk) 17:14, 23 August 2019 (UTC)

Doostdar@fawikibooks[edit]

request for prolongation. Refer to previous discussions, please.Doostdar (talk) 18:34, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

Please, provide a link to the current discussion. Ruslik (talk) 09:53, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
Persian Wikibooks is a small wiki with a small number of users, so it takes a long time to invite users to participate in a discussion. It's impossible to perform a new discussion every time I request for prolongation.--Doostdar (talk) 20:08, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
You don't need to invite anyone there. Just start a discussion and wait a one week. If no opposition the right will be granted to you. Stryn (talk) 18:18, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
What if no one attended the discussion? The main goal of users in a small Wiki is editing in main namespace not attending discussions. --Doostdar (talk) 03:38, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
A discussion is still needed. No need to invite anybody to it. Best, Vermont (talk) 03:49, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
Let's call it announcement then. You still need to announce your intention to serve as an admin on your wiki. — regards, Revi 10:09, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
I added an announcement there. --Doostdar (talk) 02:55, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold until 24 August --Alaa :)..! 13:31, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

Chelin@nap.source[edit]

As written by Ruthven we are starting the Neapolitan Wikisource project and we need some administrators to fulfill this task. I'm an administrator on the Neapolitan Wikipedia since 2013 so I know well how things works. Thank you --Chelin (talk) 12:02, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold until 23 August 2019. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:13, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

Mahir256@bn.wikisource[edit]

I have been a bnwikisource administrator since January 2018, but my temporary sysop flag expired on the 14th and I sought confirmation of my sysop status shortly after the expiry. Mahir256 (talk) 21:07, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold till 2019-08-22. (Announced on 15th, +7days) — regards, Revi 08:33, 21 August 2019 (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.

For permanent interface adminship, please provide a link to the local community approval. For temporary interface adminship please state for how long and for which tasks you need it, and link to a local announcement.

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.

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, 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.

Remove GR and MediaWiki rights of Tomybrz[edit]

Hi, it's sad, but i don't have time to contribute and i prefer for security reason to have my rights (global rollback) removed. For swmt : sorry guys, i know i wasn't very here these last months but i don't want to be a ghost here. Thanks Vermont, Jianhui67, BRPever, Cohaf, Aldo and other, it's be a pleasure to contribute and talk with you


Same reason, also thanks to local mediawiki admin.


Maybe one day i will be back ;) Regards. Tomybrz Bip Bip 21:44, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

Request moved from SRGP to here by me. Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 03:06, 21 August 2019 (UTC)
Time2wait.svg On hold for 1 day, standard for resignation of advanced permissions. — regards, Revi 06:04, 21 August 2019 (UTC)
Sad to see you go but thanks for all the contributions as a GR as well as mediawiki sysop. If you want the tools back, I will gladly support. --Cohaf (talk) 06:43, 21 August 2019 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done both. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 08:12, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Asacha@nl.wikisource[edit]

I did not have the time for several years to actively do anything so best to remove my sysop and bureaucrat access. I am convinced that this small community needs someone more active to help them. Asacha (talk) 10:32, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold for 1 day, standard for resignation of advanced permissions —MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:43, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

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

Koavf@nap.wikisource[edit]

Importer It is moving from mul.ws to its own domain and there are many templates and other material to be imported. Seems like a consensus here. —Justin (koavf)TCM 07:20, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

Which permissions do you request exactly, and for how much time? It looks Jon Harald Søby is also importing stuff there. You could coordinate each other perhaps :) Thanks, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:11, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
Sorry: importer. I had it on this page explicitly but then deleted it because the formatting was wrong. —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:43, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
@Koavf: Sorry for the delay. Done Granted for 1 month to expire on 2019-09-22. Hopefully enough to get everything done, but please ask for more time if needed. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:50, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
