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.


He has been temp admin since lrcwiki was in incubator, please give him temp admin right for three months, thank you. Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 07:11, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

In e-mail he asked me how to obtain adminship and I told him to please start a local request. --MF-W 10:07, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
He had created request for crat at lrc:ڤیکیپئدیا:چاست حوٙنە#دیڤوٙنسالاری کاریار موٙگوٙیی لۊر(Mogoeilor) but told them it's not possible to get a crat access for small wikis. I'm saying a wiki can't held without at least a local admin. Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 01:28, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
It would be correct to say that stewards will consider adminship at this time, and it would be temporary adminship, which would then follow the normal pattern of increasing terms to a year in length.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:33, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Indeed I was also asked by him about bureaucratship, but told him to seek adminship first. Sigh. --MF-W 19:46, 24 June 2015 (UTC)


I've rebuilt this wiktionarie's "Tepas" about six months ago and now I want to fix some of the text interface which is less appropriate. --Uchup19 (talk) 06:54, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

On hold until 30 June (1 week discussion minimum). --MF-W 10:49, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

I am not sure that it is sufficient for permanent adminship. Ruslik (talk) 19:30, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
OK. Then, at your discretion. --Исмаил Садуев (talk) 20:42, 28 June 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.


Already identified by foundation on Identification noticeboard. --AldNonymousBicara? 11:17, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Isn't there a minimum time-span this vote needs to be open? Is the vote already closed? Savhñ 11:30, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
Well the rules was there, said "Calon dapat diangkat apabila "suara yang setuju" mencapai minimal 25 dan disetujui oleh minimal 70% dari "jumlah suara" translated : Candidates can be appointed if the "voice agree" to reach at least 25 and be approved by at least 70% of the "turnout", But I do agree if steward want to leave it open for another 2 days so it will be full 1 week.--AldNonymousBicara? 11:35, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
As far as I understood, from my reading of dates, it was opened on the 22nd. If it would need to remain open for a week (7 days), it should be open until the 29th, which is 4 days from today. I believe a week is a reasonable period of time, anything under that being too hasty. Please clear things up, and have it filed when the request is formally closed. Savhñ 11:40, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
True, I was just leaving this here because it's already got 25, but 1 week is a good standard practice.--AldNonymousBicara? 11:42, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
On hold. Request should be open for at least a week, per local guideline: "Pengangkatan melalui mekanisme pemungutan suara yang berlangsung minimal selama 1 minggu". Since it was opened the 22nd at 14:10 UTC, at this point it has been open for under 3 days. I would also recommend to wait for a non-involved user to close this vote, since the timeframe seems to indicate that there is a certain flexibility once the week has passed. Savhñ 12:33, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
Honestly I'm not comfortable at all with such a strong hastiness. --Vituzzu (talk) 13:32, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

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.
