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 ====
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    = <!-- such as en.wikibook -->
 |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:

==== User name@xxproject ====
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    =
 |user name =

Administrator access[edit]


This requests is domain adminship to Boxstools @ady.wikipedia as per consensus. Boxstools (talk) 18:00, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

Please start a local discussion, and wait at least 1 week to allow any local community members to comment. I would also recommend getting a bit more experience on that project in particular, but also on Wikimedia in general, before becoming an admin there. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:06, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
Or did you, Boxstools, previously use a different account? --MF-W 18:08, 12 February 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.


This requests is bureaucrat and domain wikis. --Boxstools (talk) 04:13, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

Not done, per above sysop request. Ajraddatz (talk) 06:43, 13 February 2016 (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.

  • 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.


Last log action more than six months ago (per cs:Wikipedie:Žádost o práva správce#Odebrání práv v případě dlouhodobé neaktivity). Please remove his sysop rights. Thank you. 14:39, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

I propose to contact that admin first and ask if he needs the rights.--Juandev (talk) 21:07, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

Please, remove my sysop and bureaucrat flags on es.wp. Thanks in advance. HUB (talk) 00:26, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

On hold for the usual 24 hours, until 14 February 00:26 UTC.
Si deseas reconsiderar tu decisión, puedes hacérnoslo saber antes de mañana. Hagas lo que hagas, muchas gracias por tu labor durante estos 7 años como bibliotecario, y mis mejores deseos para el futuro. Espero que no nos abandones del todo :) Savhñ 00:42, 13 February 2016 (UTC)
@HUB: Una pena que te vayas. Fuimos elegidos casi al mismo tiempo. Un abrazo y espero que estés bien. —MarcoAurelio 22:28, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

O @ Wikimedia Commons[edit]

Due to our inactivity policy (criterion #3), I hereby request the removal of administrator rights from the account of O. They had been listed in the previous inactivity run and failed to perform the required number of admin actions over the past six months (see exact statistics). Please kindly confirm removal of user privileges on this page. Thank you! odder (talk) 22:07, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, please thank him/her for their services. —MarcoAurelio 22:21, 13 February 2016 (UTC)
Thank you, @MarcoAurelio. odder (talk) 22:35, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

Bellayet @ Bengali Wikisource[edit]

This site has no bureaucrat. As per local policy, access removal process should be initiated if the admin is inactive for one year. Attempt should be made to contact the sysop by various means and community to decide if the sysop does not respond within six months. More than two years have elapsed since his last edit on December 22, 2013, which is more than the maximum inactivity time without community review as per global policy. User was informed on his Bengali Wikipedia talk page, where he is regularly active. He has ignored the information and has continued editing Bengali Wikipedia. So, removal of access is requested. Thanks, Hrishikes (talk) 06:30, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

Global policy does not apply. AAR is reviewed one time a year and this will be checked in due time. The local inactivity process for admins on bn.wikisource seems to be added by Jayantanth last October. Was there a vote on this? If the local policy is good, then Bellayet needs to be informed 6 months before removal. In the link you provide you inform him last month. Was he informed before this? Please give a link where Bellayet was informed. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 06:49, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
Link here. Informed on January 22. No local AAR is being done. No, he was not informed before. Thanks, Hrishikes (talk) 06:52, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
AAR for 2015 is being done right now. The AAR can check if he wants to stay active as admin. Otherwise according to bn.wikisource policy we would have to wait another 5 months. I suggest waiting for the AAR, or the 5 months, whichever applies first, and no further action right now. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 07:00, 14 February 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
