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:

==== 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.

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.

bennylin@jvwikt[edit]

I'm already long-term sysops in multiple projects such as id.wikipedia and id.wikt. I'm requesting a permanent adminship in jv.wikt. If you're just gonna give a temp admin, then don't bother. Bennylin 11:38, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold until 2020-10-22 @Bennylin: Per the guidelines, 5+ voters who are an active participant of the project are necessary for a permanent adminship to be granted. Right now, in your case, only two persons with more than 50 edits at jv.wikt voted. Per the guidelines, the adminship will be temporary (possibly for a year rather than 6 months, given you are apparently trusted at several projects), unless that changes before the voting finishes. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 19:53, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
Apropo, is this a request only for interface adminship? Or do you want both flags (sysop and interface-admin)? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 19:57, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

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.

1Muskmelon@enwikipedia[edit]

(I am 24 x 7 active in wikipedia) 1Muskmelon (talk) 17:44, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

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.
  • 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.

Matma Rex@plwiki[edit]

Please remove my sysop access, as I have not done anything in that role in a long time. I wish to retain my other user rights and hope to continue contributing. Matma Rex (talk) 21:17, 27 October 2020 (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

jayantanth@enwikisourcebeta[edit]

I am experience user of wikimedia project last 12 years. Now a days I am wprking in Wikisource in Indic languages. I have a good knowledge of Admin an interface admin. I need some testing and iplementation of my developments and create video. Jayantanth (talk) 07:38, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done. Most of the stewards here don't have steward access on the beta cluster, as it is a separate platform used by developers to test their code. Please request it on Phab, using the project beta-cluster-infrastructure. —Thanks for the fish! talkcontribs 14:32, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
@Jayantanth: for the future, as Tks4Fish noted please make such requests using phabricator. That being said, since you are trusted with the rights on bnwikisource on prod wikis, I'm sure you can be trusted with the rights on the beta cluster, and I have granted you admin and interface-admin for 3 months on the beta enwikisource. See https://meta.wikimedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Special:Redirect/logid/54464 --DannyS712 (talk) 17:42, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
Thanks @DannyS712: for grants this access. And also @Tks4Fish: for where to apply. I was not aware that. Sorry for my bad. Jayantanth (talk) 18:08, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
