Steward requests/Permissions

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
(Redirected from RfP)
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. The list of archives is below.

  • 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]]"). This should normally be for at least one week, but no more than three weeks (if so, you'll need to restart the process).

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.

CapitainAfrika@kgwikipedia[edit]

I want to become Administrator access and Interface administrator access on wikipedia in kikongo (see here) CapitainAfrika (talk) 20:44, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

 On hold until 1 April. Like above your request doesn't seem to say anything about the interface admin part, so I'm not sure about granting that. EPIC (talk) 20:57, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
for the interface, there are many words that do not agree with the true meaning of the words, this is the reason for this need.CapitainAfrika (talk) 21:07, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
It has now been one week since the request was opened, but still, given that your userpage says you are kg-0 makes me hesitant about granting here. I will leave this to another steward for that reason. EPIC (talk) 11:16, 1 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@EPIC, @CapitainAfrika: Interface administrator rights are not necessary at all for general improvements in interface translation. It's much better to do it on https://translatewiki.net, which has its own accounts.
Interface administrator rights are necessary for advanced interface customizations, only in cases when the translations that come from translatewiki.net cannot be appropriate for some reason, and as far as I can see, this is not the case with kg.wikipedia at the moment. Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 13:39, 16 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, well, yes, the IA request was already declined a while ago, I'm just waiting for input from another steward regarding the sysop bit. EPIC (talk) 13:51, 16 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

NGC 54@rowikiquote[edit]

My rights have expired. --NGC 54 (talkcontribs) 15:20, 3 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

 On hold until 17 April 2024. EPIC (talk) 15:36, 3 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Done Granted for 1 year to expire on 2025-04-17. 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. EPIC (talk) 07:58, 17 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Zulf@suwikisource[edit]

I ask permission to request sysop rights, take care of various things and must have sysop rights. because there are no bureaucrats and only sysop bots, it makes me difficult. thank Zulftalk 01:37, 9 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I'm a bit hesitant about granting adminship here. You made your first edit the same day you opened the discussion and your only edits on the project have been today and 10 days ago, a large amount of them in userspace. Also, the only supporter in the discussion was an IP whose only edit on the project was supporting in that discussion. I'm not really inclined to grant this for those reasons, but I'd like to hear opinions of another steward. EPIC (talk) 05:05, 9 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@EPICDue to the lack of attention local wiki, it has been neglected, I rarely go there, so I mostly go to idwiki. but I'm thinking about developing more. there are many tasks that need to be fixed. Zulftalk 05:16, 9 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I have no bad intentions, so don't hesitate Zulftalk 05:16, 9 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I'm not saying you have bad intentions, but due to what I've mentioned above this feels a bit too weak for me to grant here. I'd probably grant if someone from the local community supported, but that isn't the case here, so I'm still going to leave this to another steward for them to decide. EPIC (talk) 05:21, 9 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
OK, I appreciate it. I beg you to be given rights, the local community is very small. and also there are only admin bots.
bots are not the same as humans! Thanks Zulftalk 05:37, 9 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

jimkillock@lawikibooks[edit]

Although I didn't find six users, we did find five supporting my adminship; I have used this before to edit the main page essentially. Andreas and Viktor would also be good to add as admins. JimKillock (talk) 17:21, 13 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@JimKillock: As far as I can see, this discussion started in March 2023? That is over a year ago, and we sadly can't grant adminship based on a discussion that old. If you are still interested, please open a new discussion and come back after at least a week - if you want you can keep it open for two-three weeks if you want to give the community more time to voice their opinions, but no longer than so. Thank you, EPIC (talk) 17:34, 13 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
It's quite hard to do this within a short time frame (you'll see the replies took 1-2 months last time) but I will try. JimKillock (talk) 08:36, 14 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@JimKillock: The discussion doesn't necessarily have to get any votes, given that you are an experienced user who is active on the projec and got support from multiple community members in the linked discussion. So, regardless if there are any votes, we can still grant you adminship. Either way since we are not able to grant here due to the time passed since the start of the discussion I will mark this as Not done for now, but come back after at least a week of the discussion being open. EPIC (talk) 11:49, 14 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

NGC 54@rowikisource[edit]

My rights will soon expire (6 May). --NGC 54 (talkcontribs) 13:11, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

 On hold until 22 April 2024. EPIC (talk) 13:13, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Salsa66syifa@bjn.wikiquote[edit]

Hello. This request is for administrator access. Ezagren (talk) 02:00, 16 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Done Granted for 6 months to expire on 2024-10-16. 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. EPIC (talk) 10:24, 16 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

ຮັກຊີວິດ@lo.wiktionary[edit]

Discussion since 11 April. --Lookruk 💬 (Talk) 06:40, 17 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

 On hold until 18 April. EPIC (talk) 06:49, 17 April 2024 (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.

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.

malarz_pl@plwiki[edit]

Please grand me infinitive bureaucrat rights @ plwiki after a 168-hour voting (90votes for, 0 against and 1 abstained), based on local rules (at least 20 votes and 85% in favor). Malarz pl (talk) 13:46, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Malarz pl:, plwiki has two active local bureaucrats, Maire and Masti. Have you tried contacting them for this? EPIC (talk) 13:48, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Done @EPIC: I asked malarz_pl to report to have a record. masti <talk> 14:03, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Makes sense. Thank you for the explanation. EPIC (talk) 14:19, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

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.
  • One-time CheckUser access is not permitted and temporary access is only used by Stewards or when the mandate of the CUs has an expiry date specified in local policies.

Nux@plwikipedia[edit]

After a 168-hour voting (80 votes for, 0 against and 0 abstained), based on local rules (at least 25 votes and 85% in favor), please grant Nux a indefinite access to checkuser tools, as soon as he sings Confidentiality agreement and is listed on noticeboard. Thank you in advance. Ptjackyll (talk) 12:39, 14 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

 On hold pending on the candidate's signature of the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information (see instructions) and Wikimedia Foundation confirmation of the same. EPIC (talk) 12:44, 14 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Signed, awaiting confirmation on the noticeboard. Nux (talk) 14:07, 14 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Oh, also I subscribed the CU list. I confirm that wiki-at-enux.pl is my alternative e-mail (it should work with a mailing list better then my base/primary e-mail). Nux (talk) 14:10, 14 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Great! Then all there is to do is to wait for T&S to confirm and then proceed with granting. EPIC (talk) 14:16, 14 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Joe Roe@en.wikipedia[edit]

The Arbitration Committee has appointed Joe Roe as a CheckUser. Please add him to the user group.

On behalf of the Committee, Sdrqaz (talk) 23:18, 17 April 2024 (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.

Actormusicus@itwikipedia[edit]

Thank you in advance for removing my admin flag on it.wikipedia --Actormusicus (talk) 11:35, 14 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

 On hold for 1 day, standard for resignation of advanced permissions. EPIC (talk) 11:46, 14 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Is it possible a further 24-h waiting? if not, doesn't matter --Actormusicus (talk) 07:55, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Actormusicus: Do you mean that you want to keep this on hold for another 24 hours? If so, then no problem, we will keep this on hold for as long as you wish. EPIC (talk) 08:05, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, thank you, just few hours, 24 if possible. I do not want to abuse request pages nor the stewards' patience, but deflag became a very conflicting choice for me in the last hours. Thank you --Actormusicus (talk) 08:49, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Not a problem, you are not disturbing :)  On hold for 24 hours again. EPIC (talk) 08:50, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@EPIC: excuse me again. Why then did I get notification that my permissions were turned to APAT? I do not see it any more, there is actually nothing in the log and I just deleted a sandbox of mine for testing. That's odd :-? --Actormusicus (talk) 09:22, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Ah, no, you were made autopatrolled on Meta, your permissions on itwiki remain unchanged. EPIC (talk) 09:23, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Comment Comment (confl.) (non-steward comment) @Actormusicus: EPIC ha semplicemente messo in autopatrol il tuo account qui sulla meta.wiki. Spero che tu ci ripensi. Grazie. --M/ (talk) 09:24, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Ah ok lol... sorry :-) --Actormusicus (talk) 09:27, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
As promised, I needed a few hours more. To quit this way it's probably not meant to be, so I prefer keeping my flag. Thank you --Actormusicus (talk) 12:28, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
OK, Request withdrawn. @Actormusicus: I assume this was a withdrawal, please correct me if that was not the case. EPIC (talk) 12:43, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
It was. Thank you --Actormusicus (talk) 13:25, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

GeneralNotability@en.wikipedia[edit]

GeneralNotability has resigned his Oversight access by request to the Arbitration Committee. Please remove him from the user group.

On behalf of the Committee, Sdrqaz (talk) 23:18, 17 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
