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 ====
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    =
 |user name =
(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 identity[edit]

Certain permissions (notably CheckUser and Oversight) additionally require users to confirm their identity. Users requesting these permissions must make a request below, and must also submit the relevant identification to the Wikimedia Foundation. The request is placed on hold temporarily, until the receipt has been formally confirmed by the Office.


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

==== User name@xxproject ====
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    =
 |user name =

Administrator access[edit]

See administrator for information about this user group.

  • MediaWiki interface translations are done at 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.


This user have sufficient conditions to get 3 months admin rights.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 17:36, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Done Granted for 3 months to expire on 2015-11-01. I would be willing to change this to 6 months too if so desired by the local community. Ajraddatz (talk) 01:11, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: This is my fault but the actual discussion is for permanent sysop. I didn't read the discussion carefully and wrote here for 3 months only. Now, I came to know that it was for permanent adminship. So, can you please grant permanent sysop writes to user:Manojkhurana on hiwiki? Thanks for help.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 08:05, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: Please consider, because this user have sufficient conditions to get permanent admin rights. Results are summarised in a table at the bottom of the discussion.Mala chaubey (talk) 08:36, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
You claim there is a table (also for the request above), but I dont see one (or two). --MF-W 10:41, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
I think she wanted to point out the conditions of hiwiki. But at present a candidate requires 80% consensus and some other experiences. User:Manojkhurana has those experience and got sufficient consensus also.Satyam Mishra --talk-- 18:14, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
I would be fine granting permenant access with a 9/1 result. Are there existing permenant admins on hiwiki? If not, I would prefer to go for temporary but an extended time, such as a year. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:42, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
Afaik all sysops on hiwiki are permanent; the most recent one given by me above. --MF-W 22:30, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: Yes! Presently all sysops are permanent; user:Manojkhurana and me were granted 3 month's temp access, and after the expiration of this period both the proposals (this one and the above one) were for permanent access (स्थाई/स्थायी = permanent). user:Manojkhurana is now eligible to get this access as per local discussion by 9/1 results and we request to grant him the same! We are sorry for miscommunication above. Hope this will be now granted. Thanks a lot! --Satyam Mishra --talk-- 07:16, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz, MF-Warburg: We are sorry for miscommunication, user:Manojkhurana has a successful RfA with the 80% support of Hindi Wiki community during 1 week discussion. please grant him permanent sysop writes as per discussion on hiwiki. Thanks for your cooperation.Mala chaubey (talk) 08:20, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
At present hi:user:Mala_chaubey, me and hi:user:सत्यम्_मिश्र are active and permanent sysop at hiwiki (We all 3 have given our views above). But we need extra members which can handle the whole work we have to do. Since, this user get more then 80% support and fullfill all requirements at hiwiki. This misunderstanding came because of my fault. So, we will be happy if you can give him permanent rights on hiwiki.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 14:49, 2 August 2015 (UTC)


I ask to give me admin rights. --Аль-Гимравий (talk) 18:05, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

On hold until 6 August (1 week minimum for discussion). --MF-W 18:01, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Please make a local request. --MF-W 18:02, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

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.

  • Stewards: Before granting this permission to a user, please check the current policy and make sure that the user has identified to the Wikimedia Foundation. An email template is available for requesting new users to identify. Breaching these rules may be the cause for removing your steward access.

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.

  • Stewards: Before granting this permission to a user, please check the current policy and make sure that the user has identified to the Wikimedia Foundation.
  • 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.
