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.

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.

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. Approved temporary access requests are listed at SRAT. Requests are moved to that page by a bot.

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.

Tuyenduong97@vi.wikivoyage.org[edit]

Currently, Vietnamese wikivoyage hasn't administrator, I want to be granted this right. Tuyenduong97 (talk) 23:48, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

Icem4k@nywikipedia[edit]

I would like to request to be an admin at the Chi-Chewa Wikipedia to fix basic things, translate the main page of the site and also import stuff. I cannot provide a local discussion because there's hardly anyone active there. Chabota (talk) 20:39, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

Still you should put a notice on a village pump or other appropriate forum and wait for one week. Ruslik (talk) 20:45, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
Ruslik Thank you will do so. Chabota (talk) 20:56, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

Huỳnh Nhân-thập@viwikibooks[edit]

Huỳnh Nhân-thập ran for administrator a year ago but their candidacy went mostly unnoticed and didn't garner enough support. Within the last couple months, now that the requests for permissions page is linked more prominently, the discussion has received more attention. There seems to be a consensus that they should have administrator rights, despite the extraordinary length of this poll (by Vietnamese wiki standards, at least). – Minh Nguyễn 💬 22:14, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

Does he still want the permission? Sometimes they don't know they are getting the permission when the request is rescued from the realm of the forgotten. — regards, Revi 13:34, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
Yes, he does. He has confirmed his election few day ago. --ThiênĐế98 (talk) 15:37, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

Alex Nico@ro.wikipedia.org[edit]

His candidacy ran for 7 days, as requested, and has not encountered any opposition. I believe it can now be closed.--Strainu (talk) 13:30, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

  • Stewards: Please use {{Systmp}} for approved temporary requests. Approved temporary access requests are listed at SRAT. Requests are moved to that page by a bot.

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.

  • 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.

MIKHEIL@ka.wikipedia[edit]

According to local policy If an administrator within 3 months doesn't make 500 edits and 50 sysop actions, sysop rights will be removed without voting. In several three-month periods he has not made the required 500 edit (January-March, February-April, March-May, April-June, also 17 April to 17 July). There is also consensus in KaWiki, please have a look at the last activities in this discussion. Deu. 06:26, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

vlsergey@ru.wikipedia[edit]

Local bureaucrats refused to remove flag from my account at ruwiki. Please, just do it. Vlsergey (talk) 06:25, 10 August 2018 (UTC)

Please hold this request on 3 days, this a emotions. Thanks. // Просьба отложить решение на 3 дня, это на эмоциях на фоне конфликта в рувики. Спасибо. [3] -- dima_st_bk 06:38, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
Being a member of Arbitration Committee (ru:Википедия:Арбитражный комитет), I would like to ask for putting this particular request on hold, as well as any similar requests coming from ruwiki within next a couple of weeks. The thing is there is an active conflict between some sysops, engineers and bureaucrats in ruwiki, which is related to the new technical flag (interface-admin) to be given to a couple of non-technical sysops, and which results into emotional reactions. A couple of active editors already requested to remove their flags in ruwiki, and local bureaucrats indeed refused to do that. Vlsergey is only one of them, and the only one who decided to get in touch with Stewards. But just so you know the order of magnitude, 5 out of 10 existing engineers in ruwiki requested the flags to be removed, so you can only imagine what would happen to the technical side of ruwiki if all of these requests were executed. I believe we will address the issues with the interface-admin flag within next 2 weeks, have the community to approve the related rules and policies, and after that engineers and sysops will be able to make well thought-out decisions. --Good Will Hunting (talk) 06:44, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
6 of 10, and 2 more on hold. --Serhio Magpie (talk) 06:49, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done there's 5 bureaucrats, so it should be handled locally --Alaa :)..! 07:20, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
Additional explanation: Stewards do not perform actions on wikis with ability to self-manage, unless there is emergency ("crat says no" is not an emergency) or all the crats are gone for a long time (at least 6 months - 1 year). Not the case here. — regards, Revi 10:59, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
@-revi and علاء: The following is not meant to suggest that you act contrary to an explicit request from ruwiki's ArbCom at all. But if @Good Will Hunting had not appeared, I do not see where policy would allow anybody to force a user to hold rights that s/he does not want to keep.
We have a 24-hour hold rule here for resignations of rights, and for good reason. But if someone wishes to resign rights on a self-managing wiki, and bureaucrats fail to act within (3 days?)(7 days?)(surely something longer than 24 hours), then in my opinion stewards actually should act. This is not like most other situations where we normally don't want stewards to act when 'crats can. This is a case of a user not being permitted to voluntarily give up rights. And as long as we're satisfied there has been a cooling off period, we should facilitate that. StevenJ81 (talk) 21:22, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
Policy(+"If there are any doubts as to whether or not an action should be performed, stewards should not act unless it is an emergency or there are no active local users to do it.") is that we do not intervene on the projects with active crats, so it's unactionable. — regards, Revi 01:00, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Question is "What is an active local crat?" I'd argue that if crats are missing from a project for a week (and, let's just say, haven't left a return date on-wiki), that constitutes "no active local users to do it" for this purpose. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:24, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
I agree and have said so already several times in this section, although mostly with regard to sysop resignations from wikis where bureaucrats can remove sysops. I find it ridiculous to refer resigning sysops to such a local bureaucrat, no matter whether active or not. A resignation by itself cannot be controversial (it may very well be "under a cloud", as enwiki likes to say, but it is by definition requested by the affected user), so there is no harm if a steward executes it. On the contrary, a user who really wants to get rid of a usergroup (while the community is trying to convince him to stay and delays acting on the request) can simply start to act rogue to force stewards to remove him. Before going into such childish games, I'd prefer if the rights are simply removed... --MF-W 13:33, 14 August 2018 (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
