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.

Cross-wiki requests
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. 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.

Seth R@bn.wikibooks[edit]

I have 600+ edits. I have experience in Bengali Wikipedia.I Requesting for temporary administrator right for 6 months in Bangla Wikibooks. Sethtalk 02:13, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

On hold till 5 December. --Stryn (talk) 08:06, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
@Stryn already 7 days passed,, in discussion 4 supportss and 2 opposes but I am really hope for this right. If you check then I am most active user in this project. Last 30 days I have made more than 2 months. I have made more than 820 edits and 5000 global edits. I want make this community more strong. This right will inspires me to more work. So please do it. Sethtalk 10:06, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done. Unfortunately, per the local policy, to get an adminship, you need at least 75% of support. Seems like there's nothing wrong, just that you should be more active before asking the rights. So try to stay a bit more active on the project and then if you want, ask the rights again. Best regards, --Stryn (talk) 10:18, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Mirzali@diq.wikipedia[edit]

I'm a native speaker of Zazaki and want to help 'Asmen' -our administrator-. Thank you! Mirzali (talk) 11:44, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

[discussions removed] On hold until 7 December. By the way, the "Embassy" page is marked as being for non-Zazaki speakers. Is there maybe a more apt page for holding adminship requests? --MF-W 03:23, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
Dear MF-Warburg! Please consider my explanation for this matter. I didn't want to bring it into the discussion, because it would be distorted and chewed again. Best regards! -- Mirzali (talk) 06:20, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
The candidate was an admin and abused the access (here). I commented on Embassy page, 3 of supporters are not even active on Zazaki wikipedia. So, there are only invited accounts for the vote. P.S. I will not discuss the request here.--Gomada (talk) 08:53, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
This is not the discussion page Gomada. You don't have to pretend to have the final word. -- Mirzali (talk) 06:01, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
The steward that decides this should review the Meta RFC above, it seems User:Quentinv57 desysopped Mirzali because of this 2013 discussion. --Rschen7754 19:12, 2 December 2016 (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 signed the confidentiality agreement with 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.

  • 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.

INeverCry@Commons[edit]

I suffer from Bi-Polar Disorder and Panic Disorder. I don't think that being an administrator is a good thing for me. Doing less stressful work, like category sorting and license reviews is probably a much better and healthier choice for me. I think the community at Commons knows I care and that I enjoy working on the project, but I think they would want what's best for me. I think that a removal of my sysop right at Commons is best thing for my health at this time, and going forward. I don't think I'll ask to be an admin anywhere again. There's just too much stress and conflict involved, and I can't handle it well at all. Thanks for your time. lNeverCry 18:57, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

It's a pity to see this happening. INeverCry has been one of our best admins. Unfortunately Commons is such a hostile environment from time to time. Jcb (talk) 19:24, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
Not much to add after Jcb's comment. Personal health outweighs any community needs, please get well and stay well! --Krd 20:08, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
Yes check.svg removed, I just want to say it is very mature decision. Thank you INeverCry,einsbor talk 18:07, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Coyau@Commons[edit]

User deceased :-(. Please remove sysop access. --Steinsplitter (talk) 13:21, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, einsbor talk 14:54, 6 December 2016 (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
