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    = <!-- such as en.wikibooks -->
 |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 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.


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

 and also mistakes. Thank you. 

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.


Please approve this request noting that it is possible that only 5 or 6 people will see, and less will respond to my notice. There is very little in the form of community here. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by CRC43 (talk)

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.

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.

User Fullerene@it.wikipedia[edit]

Please remove admin status. Fullerene has been already informed and thanked for his work. Thank you. --НУРшЯGIO(beware of the moose) 18:44, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

Done, with echoed thanks for their past work. – Ajraddatz (talk) 06:15, 19 May 2018 (UTC)


Please, remove all my rights in test2wiki because I want to make the contributions in non-test sites. I am installed MediaWiki on localhost in my computer, and I in test2wiki don't see the notable changes, comparing with classical MediaWiki 1.30. Also, I don't longer need this rights. Marshmallych 18:13, 19 May 2018 (UTC)

@Marshmallych: Well, I previously also Email to Ajraddatz for request PlyrStar93 and your right to be removed from test 2 site, which was I passed you the tools for maintenance tasks against on the LTA vandal Liza Veniza sock attack over there. As test site is a Pre-deployment version of MediaWiki legitimate testing efforts place, and is not a community, so it doesn't need to make the productive contributions over there. SA 13 Bro (talk) 19:06, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
SA 13 Bro. About Liza Veniza. Liza Veniza's socks will make vandal corrections, and they will be rollbacked out. Marshmallych 19:23, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
Also, LTA's accounts will be globally banned: fastly or longely. Marshmallych 19:24, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
Stewards and admins will continue monitor this LTA, don't need to worry about this crackpot vandal. SA 13 Bro (talk) 20:05, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Marshmallych's test2wiki access removal request has been resolved by a test2wiki bureaucrat. — xaosflux Talk 19:37, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
Xaosflux, thanks. Marshmallych 08:30, 20 May 2018 (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


Please make me rollbacker & autopatroller on sdwiki. Thanks — Bukhari (Talk!) 02:47, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

sdwiki has two administrators. Please ask them locally to assign the rights. RadiX 02:57, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
@RadiX: but i think admin can not assign any rights (except ip exm), only crat can make rollbacker.— Bukhari (Talk!) 13:55, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
@BukhariSaeed: There's no rollbacker flag in sdwiki --Alaa :)..! 14:18, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
