Requests and proposals Steward requests (Permissions) latest archive
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]]").

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.

Exec8@pag.wiki[edit]

Hello. I am requesting an admin access as this wikipedia project has no administrator for a decade and the project is very dormant. I am involved already in various related projects such as this and this. There are several outdated pages, inappropriate pages (must be migrated to incubator wiktionary). I already have an existing role in Wikimania wiki as admin and bureaucrat. Another purpose to facilitate assistance on capacity building on this wikipedia with the offline Pangasinan local community to convert them as online contributors of this project. --Exec8 (talk) 18:23, 28 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Time2wait.svg On hold until Feb 4 -- Amanda (she/her) 23:15, 28 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[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.

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.

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.

XenonX3@dewiki[edit]

Hey, please remove my bureaucrat rights on dewiki, as I didn't want to go into the necessary re-election after two years. Thanks, XenonX3 (talk) 08:10, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Time2wait.svg On hold for 1 day, standard for resignation of advanced permissions -- Amanda (she/her) 09:39, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Funkruf@dewiki[edit]

Hey, please remove all rights on dewiki. my time with this account is ending. My new job and being a handball referee have a higher priority --Funkruf (talk) 10:09, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Time2wait.svg On hold for 1 day, standard for resignation of advanced permissions. I am also cognizant that this triggers the 3 crats rule. dewiki should begin looking for new crats immediately, as resignations are only meant to be held for a 24 hour period. If we can get the community to find a candidate and one of these two agree (Funkruf technically has till June to reconfirm) to stay on, I can see holding this off, but not for long. -- Amanda (she/her) 11:32, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oppose Oppose please 1 day. Funkruf (talk) 11:36, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I immediately launched a call for candidatures. It's unfortunate. Itti (talk) 11:54, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Meanwhile User:Funkruf blocked himself, which so far was his last action. Unfortunately, this seems to be a final move. Thus it does not matter, if you keep this on hold or not because he will not answer anymore.--Altaripensis2 (talk) 14:55, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Altaripensis2 I'm still there. No panic. But what else am I supposed to do in Wikipedia? Write that I already hinted at the withdrawal in October last year and it's being ignored? Actually, I wanted the withdraw even earlier. But I still wanted to finish the article Handball-Weltmeisterschaft der Männer 2023. 15 year are enough, the account can now die. Funkruf (talk) 15:30, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am glad to read you again, and sorry, obviously I missed your hints of a withdrawal. I personally think you could still do quite a lot on de:WP and I have no idea who will take your place there, but of course I respect your decision.--Altaripensis2 (talk) 15:57, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry, aber ich schreibe mal auf deutsch, seht es mir bitte nach. Lieber Funkruf, dein Engagement war immer herausragend, danke dafür, aber du hast auch mindestens zwei mal bereits hier auf Meta einen Entzug deiner Rechte beantragt, dann jeweils zurückgezogen. Ich finde es gut, wenn du einen neuen Job hast, andere Hobbys usw. dadurch sich deine Interessen verlagert haben. Ich finde es nicht gut, dass du gerade, ohne Not, die de-Crats sprengst. Dir ist doch klar, bei nur noch zwei Bs dürfen wir nicht mehr handeln und es benötigt Wahlen, die zwei Wochen dauern. Wie auch immer. ich würde es begrüßen, wenn dieser Antrag offen gehalten wird, denn es haben sich bereits mehrere erklärt in Kürze eine Kandidatur einzuleiten. Wenn nicht, wäre es auch nicht so schlimm, die laufende AK ist gescheitert, das kann auch so erledigt werden, die Bot-Anfragen müssen warten, ist kein Problem und dann warten wir die Wahlen ab. Nach der ersten erfolgreichen ist dieses Problem gelöst. Den Stress hätten wir aber auch nicht machen müssen. Deswegen wäre es gut, wenn du dein Rückrittsgesucht einfach für diese Zeit ruhen lassen könntest. Danach ist es ja kein Problem und du kannst dich deinem RL widmen. Gruß Itti (talk) 23:21, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hast du etwa Schiss, Itti? Ehrlich gesagt, sehe ich es auch wie die anderen. Wir brauchen keine Bürokraten. Wir können das Spanien-System sehr gut auch bei dewiki anwenden. Und ehrlich gesagt, es war bekannt. seit Oktober beim Rückzug von Emergency Doc! Und ihr habt nichts gemacht. Selber schuld.
And now in English: Are you scared, Itti? To be honest, I also see it like the others. We don't need bureaucrats. We can apply the Spanish system very well to dewiki. And frankly, it was known: Since October when Emergency Doc withdrew! And you have done nothing. Well, it's your own fault. Funkruf (talk) 23:44, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Nein, ich habe keinen "Schiss", wovor sollte ich den haben? Es gibt anderes im Leben, ich habe gerade meinen Vater verloren. Doch ich stehe zu dem, wozu ich mich bereit erklärt habe. Du auch? Mache das mit dir aus, bitte nicht mit mir. Bestens. Itti (talk) 23:52, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Bedauerlich, habe ich auch. Aber da mussst du mit leben und ich muss selber mit den Todesfall leben. Also kümmere dich um deinen Kram Und höre auf mich anzuflennen. Denn ich habe echt genug von dir. Danke. Funkruf (talk) 23:55, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Es dürfte zum Selbstchutz dieses Users besser sein, seinem Wunsch direkt nachzukommen. Bestens Itti (talk) 00:05, 5 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
