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.

Requests[edit]

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

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.

Gustave London@st.wikipedia[edit]

I know the local language and the tool will help me a lot Gustave London (talk) 15:17, 11 August 2019 (UTC)

You have only one edit on this project. What exactly are the tools needed for? Praxidicae (talk) 15:25, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
Disposal and protection Gustave London (talk) 15:31, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
Can you give a few examples of what needs to be deleted and/or protected currently? Praxidicae (talk) 15:35, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
Please, create a local discussion and link it here. Ruslik (talk) 13:26, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

Ymnes@nl.wikinews (temp)[edit]

Can I have my admin rights back for just a short moment (rest of August) to cover the vacation period of De Wikischim. And can it be done right now, without waiting a week? I was chosen, and if I hadn't wihthdrawn (see here) my rights would still have been there. It's just to be able to remove vandalism right away. I hope for a quick response. Thanks in advance. Ymnes (talk) 09:56, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

SRP is request only without votings. Please conduct your vote on your wiki. — regards, Revi 12:16, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
Unfortunately, once you relinquish your permission, it is gone, and the 7 days discussion is a requirement. I don't mind if some other stewards want to override me and IAR grant them for short periods, though. — regards, Revi 12:16, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
@-revi: That voting round and de period of 7 days have yet been there in november 2018, see here. De Wikischim will have vacation (holiday) within shortly and I'm only giving him a backup, in order to keep the project clean from spam and vandalism. Ymnes (talk) 13:47, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
Revi- has holiday since today[1]
If I should really wait a week, please can you name me the page where I can report vandalism in case that happens meanwhile? I have been trusted the rights several times before though (nl. aswell as li. - but I don't want them structurally for personal reasons). Ymnes (talk) 17:11, 10 August 2019 (UTC)
Help of steward needed
It's English language spam on nl.wikinews that needs to be speedy deleted. Ymnes (talk) 05:57, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
Help of steward needed
Please erase this spam too
Please understand that I'm just covering the vacation (holiday) period of De Wikischim, and: that I would still have been an administrator if I hadn't handed in my own rights voluntarily (so there has been a voting (6-0) then yet and now for the second time a period of 7 days). And that the administrator De Wikischim here above supports my adminship for August too (he even mailed me to ask to pick it up permanently, but I don't want that myself).
Please grant me the rights and act in favour of Wikinews. That's the only thing asked! Ymnes (talk) 05:18, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, but you have continued this fruitless discussion on this board (where by the way there should not be any discussions) for eight days. If you had filed a request on your wiki eight days ago, you would have already been made a sysop (most likely). Ruslik (talk) 09:29, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
Excuses me, but your acting as if I'm nagging. That's a very wrong interpretation, when my only objective is to help a few weeks out during the vacation of the predominantly active administrator, and than to be gone there again. My main focus is on a project on Wikipedia anyway, not on Wikinews... And first of all, there isn't even a discussion here, not even a talk. I didn't even get an answer where to place requests to stewards instead. Ymnes (talk) 14:50, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
Since nlwikinews is a small wiki, Global Sysop can act if needed as well as stewards in clear cut cases of vandalism, spam and etc....you can request their help using SRM. Regards,--Cohaf (talk) 14:56, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
@Cohaf: thanks at least for mentioning this, I was waiting on this answer alone yet for a couple of days.
- My request here fulfils all requirements, though. 6-0 was the result of a voting that took place less than a year ago. That's not something to be neglected. Bye. Ymnes (talk) 15:10, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Doostdar@fawikibooks[edit]

request for prolongation. Refer to previous discussions, please.Doostdar (talk) 18:34, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

Please, provide a link to the current discussion. Ruslik (talk) 09:53, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
Persian Wikibooks is a small wiki with a small number of users, so it takes a long time to invite users to participate in a discussion. It's impossible to perform a new discussion every time I request for prolongation.--Doostdar (talk) 20:08, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
You don't need to invite anyone there. Just start a discussion and wait a one week. If no opposition the right will be granted to you. Stryn (talk) 18:18, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
What if no one attended the discussion? The main goal of users in a small Wiki is editing in main namespace not attending discussions. --Doostdar (talk) 03:38, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
A discussion is still needed. No need to invite anybody to it. Best, Vermont (talk) 03:49, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
Let's call it announcement then. You still need to announce your intention to serve as an admin on your wiki. — regards, Revi 10:09, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
I added an announcement there. --Doostdar (talk) 02:55, 17 August 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.

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.

B20180@thwikipedia[edit]

Hello, I nominated B20180 to be Cherkuser on Thai wikipedia and A community election have gaining consensus with 35/0/0 (support 100%). Also, B20180 agree to following CheckUser policy and other related. regards, Geonuch (talk) 14:40, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold pending signature of the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information (see instructions) —MarcoAurelio (talk) 18:58, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio: B20180 signed and replied email to Trijnstel complete (from his talk page). --Geonuch (talk) 11:30, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
@Geonuch: Thanks for the notice. Like I said below, we need to wait until the appropriate Wikimedia employee list both of your usernames at the identification noticeboard before proceeding to assign your permissions. Given that it's Wikimania time, it might take longer than usual. It's not in our hands though. Apologies for any incovenience. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:51, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Geonuch@thwikipedia[edit]

Hello, I nominated myself to be Cherkuser on Thai wikipedia and A community election have gaining consensus with 32/0/0 (support 100%). Also, I agree to following CheckUser policy and other related. regards, Geonuch (talk) 14:40, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold pending signature of the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information (see instructions) —MarcoAurelio (talk) 18:58, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio: I signed. --Geonuch (talk) 23:05, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
@Geonuch: Thanks. We need to wait until your name is listed in the noticeboard and for B20180 to complete the required steps as well (in a project there must be at least two checkusers or none at all). —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:01, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

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 Xoristzatziki@el.wiktionary[edit]

Please remove my sysop access. There is no active bureaucrat at the moment and I do not feel good with my account, since I have no secure access at most of the time. Xoristzatziki (talk) 08:39, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold for 1 day, standard for resignation of advanced permissions. — regards, Revi 11:16, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Drabdullayev17@az.wiktionary[edit]

I request removal of my sysop status.  Drabdullayev17 (talk) 13:03, 16 August 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

Daniele Pugliesi@itwikiversity[edit]

Please assign transwiki importer rights to Daniele Pugliesi on Italian Wikiversity, as per community decision (check the linked discussion). Thanks :) --Leofbrj (talk) 20:43, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
