Steward requests/Permissions

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
(Redirected from Srp)
Shortcut:
SRP

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. The list of archives is below.

  • Requests for bot flags are handled at SRB, and requests for global permissions are handled at SRGP.
  • 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:

==== Username@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]]"). This should normally be for at least one week, but no more than three weeks (if so, you'll need to restart the process).

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:

==== User name@xxproject ====
{{sr-request
  |status     = <!--don't change this line-->
  |domain     =
  |user name  =
  |discussion = 
}}

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.

Please start a new discussion about requesting the permission on the local village pump, administrators' noticeboard or a designated page for requesting permissions each time you request or renew adminship.

  • Discussions should be open for seven days. Please request adminship here seven days after discussions started. This page is not the place for any discussions or votes. (For wikis with few active users, it is OK to have no comments.)
  • If you only want adminship for specific tasks, please state for how long and for which tasks you need it. Otherwise stewards will decide whether to assign permanent adminship and the duration of adminship. See Steward requests/Permissions/Minimum voting requirements.

Ariandi Lie@suwiki[edit]

Wikilink that I had submitted for local sysop: su:Wikipedia:Kuncén/Pamundut jadi kuncén#Ariandi Lie kanggo janten Kuncén Ariandi Lie Talk with me 12:27, 14 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Ariandi Lie: As you mentioned, suwiki currently has a bureaucrat, Kumincir, who edited as recently as five days ago. Have you tried contacting them for this first? If not, please try doing so and wait at least one week for a response from them. If they do not respond, the request can be processed here. EPIC (talk) 12:29, 14 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I sent him an email a few days ago. And still waiting for a response from @Kumincir. Ariandi Lie Talk with me 13:59, 16 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, I am also sending the local bureaucrat an email, so let's wait a week. However, I just happened to notice that this discussion was started in September of 2023, which would be too old in our standards, so if the local bureaucrat does not grant this I doubt that we will be able to, since the consensus would be too old in our standards at this point. EPIC (talk) 15:12, 16 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thank You. In my request on the local wiki, I actually got 1 approval from a local bureaucrat (Nandar a.k.a. Kumincir) even though the discussion was more than 6 months ago. Ariandi Lie Talk with me 08:29, 18 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

 On hold until 23 June 2024. EPIC (talk) 13:32, 16 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I know it's my place to question the authority, but may I know why the rights is on hold? User:Muddyb (Talk) 14:57, 16 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
To allow at least one week of discussion. You started the discussion today, thus the request has been put on hold until seven days after it was posted, which in this case is 23 June. EPIC (talk) 15:04, 16 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Sure thing. Although there is no one there to discuss with. Unless I have to call people from the Swahili Wikipedia. I find it very awkward since they do not participate at all on the project. It would seem like a scum to call for people who do not contribute. Anyway, I'll wait. User:Muddyb (Talk) 15:17, 16 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
It doesn't necessarily have to get participation, but there needs to be at least one week of discussion. We will return in seven days and evaluate it if there are no objections. EPIC (talk) 15:20, 16 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
One love, Brethren! User:Muddyb (Talk) 15:41, 16 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Андрей Козлов 123@kbdwikipedia[edit]

Hello! I'm an admin of kbd-wiki. My 6-months adminship will expire on 2024-06-25 (19:17 UTC). I created the confirmation request on this page. The voting continuing there to 2024-06-25 (17:00 UTC). The difference in time between the closing the voting and the expiring of adminship are more than 2 hours. I ask extend adminship now for a 1 day, for provide the continuity, if the application will to be successful, but stewards will not decide on confirmation before the expiring of my adminship. If the application will successful, I ask to count down the new period from 2024-06-25, 19:17 UTC, when it must finish as planned. If the application will not successful, the period just will expire on 2024-06-26 (19:17 UTC). Please don't close the request, and I ask to consider this request as confirmation request before the voting will end on 2024-06-25 17:00 UTC. I ask to extend the period or approve the adminship on an ongoing basis. Thanks. Best regards, Андрей Козлов 123 (talk) 17:45, 23 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

You misunderstood me. I want to hold on 26 June 2024, 19:17 UTC, 24 hours more than now. Андрей Козлов 123 (talk) 17:55, 23 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
OK,  On hold until 26 June 2024 then. EPIC (talk) 18:03, 23 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Flaverius@ndswiki[edit]

Hello everyone! The Low Saxon Wikipedia has no currently acitve administrator. The admin and bureaucrat Slomox last edit was 22. April 2023. The other Admin User:Iwoelbern wasn’t active since 03. December 2023.

I nominated myself as a admin (see above) to prevent vandalism, so that the small wiki team don’t need to look after that wiki and to get some maintenace work done, including moving pages back that were worngfully moved, editing protected pages etc.

After the three weeks period for votes is over now, I got one vote in favour from the only other active user at the moment Easfrisian. No one else participated. According to the nds.wiki-rules an admin needs three votes in total to be eleceted. Unforutnately there aren’t even three active users rightnow. I tried to reach out to the admins over e-Mail, but didn’t get any reaction.

Threfore I request temporary administrator status for the nds.wiki here. --Flaverius (talk) 10:47, 25 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, like you mentioned, ndswiki has a bureaucrat. If possible we want to leave the task of adding administrators to local bureaucrats if there are any. I'm emailing them and will come back here in a week to process this if there has still been no response since then. EPIC (talk) 13:52, 25 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

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.

Please start a new discussion about requesting the permission on the local village pump, administrators' noticeboard or a designated page for requesting permissions each time you request or renew interface adminship.

  • Discussions should be open for seven days. Please request interface adminship here seven days after discussions started. This page is not the place for any discussions or votes. (For wikis with few active users, it is OK to have no comments.)
  • If you only want interface adminship for specific tasks, please state for how long and for which tasks you need it. Otherwise stewards will decide whether to assign permanent interface adminship and the duration of interface adminship. See Steward requests/Permissions/Minimum voting requirements.

Bureaucrat access[edit]

See Bureaucrat for information about this user group.
  • In principle, requests for temporary bureaucrat access are not granted.
  • A small project does not need bureaucrats. Currently whether a promotion is valid or not is decided by stewards. See here for a guideline.

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.
  • One-time CheckUser access is not permitted and temporary access is only used by Stewards or when the mandate of the CUs has an expiry date specified in local policies.

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.

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

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, provide a link to the discussion, with 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.
  • To request the removal of another user's permissions for inactivity, link to your local inactivity policy. If your site does not have inactivity policy, the global policy Admin activity review applies.
  • See the instructions above for adding new requests. Please post new requests at the bottom of the section.

Vito Genovese@trwiki[edit]

Posting here for transparency; as per Oversight policy#Removal of access, I have removed oversighter rights from Vito Genovese@trwiki as per more one year of global inactivity. Last edit at 2023-03-03 10:03, last logged action at 2023-03-02 20:57. EPIC (talk) 07:54, 1 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, per my email exchange with EPIC, I am leaving this quick note to let the record show that I am actively on my account and in full control of it, just not editing at the moment. As the policy intends to prevent the risks associated with unattended accounts, I believe we are safe here. Additionally, the local policy to get the access is only through an RfO, something that I am not willing to go through at this time, so the removal would only serve to prevent my potential work on this front. I would therefore appreciate it if a reinstatement could be considered. Thank you!
Vito Genovese 18:43, 1 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I'm not sure whether the rights can be reinstated at this point; I will leave this to another steward. In the meantime I will place this request on hold to prevent archiving. EPIC (talk) 15:43, 2 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Appreciate it! I have a couple additional points that I would be happy to share with the steward that looks into this case, which I am not willing to share publicly. Please drop me a line if you see fit. Thank you!

Salazarov@uzwiki[edit]

Our young administrator Muhammadali Ikramov tragically drowned on June 19, 2024. We released a statement celebrating his life and contributions to WMF projects on behalf of the Wikimedians of the Uzbek Language User Group, and national news outlets, including Kun, Ogoh, and Platina ran stories about his life and career as a Wikimedian. A truly tragic loss for our community. Nataev talk
