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.

Meta-Wiki requests

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.

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.

अजीत कुमार तिवारी@hi.wikisource[edit]

It is requested to grant this user temporary admin and interface admin rights on Hindi Wikisource. Thanks. --नीलम (talk) 02:40, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

Ajit is founder pillar on Hindi Wikisource. he got 5 votes and was opposed by none. --अनिरुद्ध! (talk) 03:28, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

H78c67c@yuewiktionary[edit]

Either temporary or permanent is fine; and I forgot to make the request last week :(, please let me know if I need to initiate a local vote again.--H78c67c (talk) 15:08, 3 October 2019 (UTC)
H78c67c, yes, kindly initiate a local vote again, please. That is the standard process we follow. --Base (talk) 23:12, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
@Base: Thanks for your reply. Is there a particular threshold for getting permanent adminship? Thanks! --H78c67c (talk) 08:11, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
H78c67c, I am afraid that given the current activity in the project permanent adminship is not possible. That being said for temporary adminship it is okay if no one votes at all, also normally each subsequent temporary adminship is given for a longer period unless there are reasons not to do that. --Base (talk) 22:06, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
@Base: I see. So obviously I could only get a temporary adminship, could I just leave a note in the community noticeboard (or relevant pages, just as I did a few weeks ago at wikt:yue:Special:Permalink/14742#管理員權限)? --H78c67c (talk) 03:37, 6 October 2019 (UTC)
@Base: Hi. Not sure if you overlooked my last message. I would greatly appreciate it if you would leave a quick response so that I could know whether the process is necessary or not. (As a matter of fact I forgot to renew my rights, please accept my apology if that caused any inconveniences)--H78c67c (talk) 10:17, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
H78c67c, hi, sorry I had little time to address the backlog here. It is better if you hold a vote just as though you would be obtaining the permissions for the first time. --Base (talk) 12:48, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

Mirzali@diq.wikipedia[edit]

We need an admin in Zazaki Wikipedia, who will hep us. Mirzali is cut out for this job, he helps a lot and he is doing a very good job. Vuzorg (talk) 19:28, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

Mirzali is editing the articles of Zazaki Wikipedia for years with diligence and accuracy. As an admin he would be a great help for us other admins. --Asmeno (talk) 20:52, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Please, start a local discussion and place a link to it here. Ruslik (talk) 08:48, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

𐰇𐱅𐰚𐰤@trwikisource[edit]

Third election.--HakanIST (talk) 12:11, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

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.

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.

H78c67c@yuewiktionary[edit]

Pending local vote just as with the admin flag. --Base (talk) 23:26, 4 October 2019 (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.

Theklan@euwikisource[edit]

We have decided to name a Bureaucrat so we can also decide on administrators without bothering people at Meta. Bureaucrats and Administrators are perpetual if the users don't decide to remove permissions or if they do administrative tasks for one year. Thanks. Theklan (talk) 18:28, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

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.

IJzeren Jan@nl.wikipedia[edit]

According to nl.wikipedia policies, administrators lose their admin rights when their activity has fallen under the limit of 250 edits within 365 days. IJzeren Jan reached that point yesterday (Dutch time). See: nl:Wikipedia:Stemlokaal/Inactiviteit. The requests of Ecritures are sympathetic, but not policy based. The Banner (talk) 22:12, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

For the first request see [1] (in case of archiving by bot). As nlwiki bureaucrat I support this request, second bureaucrat to support. Activity criteria: "An admin who has made less than 250 edits during the past 12 months, will have their admin flag removed." IJzeren Jan made less than 250 edits between 16 October 2018 and 16 October 2019. As such his admin bit should be removed. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 07:54, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
Another nlwiki bureaucrat here. I support the interpretation of the rules by Taketa. It's sad to see IJzeren Jan lose his mod rights, but this follows immediately from the activity criteria the Wikipedia community at nlwiki has decided upon. If the community wants more lenient rules, they can change their own regulations. CaAl (talk) 12:26, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
The local policy activity criteria states "less than 250 edits during the past 12 months". October 2019 is not yet a "past" month, so the edits should be counted in the period from 1 October 2018 to 30 September 2019. There were 408 edits during that period, so no reason yet to revoke mod rights. Next check date is 1 November 2019, when October 2019 has become a "past month". Rgds, Trewal (talk) 13:40, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
You know that policy has never been interpreted that way. Please stop this extreme level of wikilawyering. Natuur12 (talk) 13:57, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
What is the problem with waiting 2 weeks till 1 November? Please show me where my interpretation is wrong, instead of accusing me of extreme wikilawyering. PS. There is an ongoing discussion about this on the local nlwiki, and I am not the only one that supports this interpretation. Rgds, Trewal (talk) 14:12, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
That you are stretching the period by misinterpreting the activity criteria by counting only full months, not periods as long as a month. The Banner (talk) 16:04, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
Your claim of "stretching" is incorrect. In the above interpretation the window is exactly 12 months and has exactly the same size as the sliding window, not a second longer. Rgds, Trewal (talk) 18:03, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
Why do you think that "the period of a month" always starts at the first of a calendar month? The Banner (talk) 18:20, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done The interpretation of the local policy by local bureaucrats takes the precedence over all other interpretations. Ruslik (talk) 20:41, 17 October 2019 (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
