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.

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.

User Tiven2240@mrwikisource[edit]

After the desypnosis of user:Mahitgar for misusing administrative powers (link above) marathi Wikisource and Wiktionary has no active Administrator. There are improvements left in these wiki and of cleanups required for which I request for temporary adminship on this wiki for atleast 6 months as I find no active community on these wiki's for a permanent vote. Tiven2240 (talk) 12:01, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

Please, start a discussion on mr.wikisource. In addition, Mahitgar is still a sysop in mr.wikisource. Ruslik (talk) 16:13, 9 December 2017 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: I have started the discussion here. Mahitgar is still a sypnosis but not active on any of the projects after his report on SN --Tiven2240 (talk) 16:57, 9 December 2017 (UTC)
Time2wait.svg On hold till 16 December 2017. Ruslik (talk) 18:55, 9 December 2017 (UTC)


Keete 37 was elected as the sysop. However, the rules were distorted, It was alleged that Keete 37 was not elected in the election. Keete 37 protested. White Demon wrote that Keete 37 was elected in the election. Baskervill wrote that Keete 37 was elected in the election. But that was not taken into account. The questions were not answered. Exact comments have been deleted 1, 2, 3, Al.xonder was blocked because he wrote a comment. 3, Aydinsalis was blocked because he wrote a comment. I told my opinion, so they blocked me. Others have also been blocked, so no one can say the truth. Please make a decision. Çim Çen In (talk) 10:03, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

Hello, Keete 37 is not an admin so we can't remove the admin rights. Stryn (talk) 12:06, 9 December 2017 (UTC)
+ I think this is a community dispute that should be solved by using its local venues or RFC. Suggest closing as declined, referring to local venues or RFC. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 12:22, 9 December 2017 (UTC)
This was discussed 2 times. But as I mentioned, they hindered the debate. The questions remained unanswered. The people who asked questions were blocked. We will not have normal discussions. If a new discussion is required, let's discuss again, if you want it. Give quarantine that the participants will not be blocked. Or, check the discussion. Çim Çen In (talk) 12:53, 9 December 2017 (UTC)
MarcoAurelio, I do not protest. I did as you said: Requests for comment/Administrator access (Keete 37). I Suggest closing as declined. But I do not believe that there will be a result. Thanks. Çim Çen In (talk) 13:21, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

Satdeep Gill@pawikisource[edit]

I am already a permanent sysop on Punjabi Wikipedia. It would be great to have it here as well. Satdeep Gill (talk) 06:01, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

Without any votes only temporal adminship is possible. Ruslik (talk) 18:41, 11 December 2017 (UTC)


Request for still another year long temporary Adminship. Last year's flag is expiring tomorrow December 13th. Thank you. ---Tn4196 (talk) 12:05, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Done Granted for 1 year to expire on 2018-12-12. Please remember to translate the interface at only and preferably upload images to Wikimedia Commons. To prolong your adminship, please start another election a few days before your temporary access expires, and after a week post your request again to this page. Thanks. -- Stryn (talk) 15:55, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

@MarcoAurelio: Thanks a lot! How can I access the checkuser wiki and #wikimedia-privacy/#wikimedia-checkuser at IRC? All required info should be above. Best, --Martin Urbanec (talk) 10:55, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
Easy: wait until I give you access. ;-) Now Yes check.svg Done as well. Welcome email etc are on the way. Trijnsteltalk 22:01, 12 December 2017 (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.
