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.

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. 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.

Wintereu@rowikisource[edit]

As mentioned on the local discussion page (see link above), ro.wikisource has been subject to constant vandalisms (see recent changes page). That also includes obscenities and vandalism pages. As a long time patroller on this project, it seems that most of them are made by school kids. And for some reason or another, there some pages that were constantly vandalized. And they are always anonymous and almost never the same IPs. Anyway, there are two admins at ro.wikisource. Unfortunately, one of them is inactive for over 2 years and the other one inactive since October 2016. According to local policy, they should probably have their rights removed... But that won't solve any issue. Thanks Wintereu 00:09, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

Symbol wait.svg In progress... until May 26. -- Avi (talk) 16:14, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Ooswesthoesbes@liwikibooks[edit]

I request temporary sysop access, as there is no community. --OosWesThoesBes (talk) 19:28, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

Done Granted for 1 year to expire on 2018-05-23. Cheers! --MF-W 20:14, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
Thank you! --OosWesThoesBes (talk) 09:10, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

Thank you :) --@ջեօ 21:19, 23 May 2017 (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.

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 DavidL@frwikibooks[edit]

Contributeur inactif depuis plus de deux ans. FrankyLeRoutier (talk) 06:08, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Is there a policy page or noticeboard discussion saying that administrators who are inactive for more than two years will be de-sysopped? Have you notified the two users that their rights will be removed? MBisanz talk 12:34, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Il n'y a pas eu de discussion sur la durée d'inactivité pour le retrait des statuts, je n'ai pas mis de message sur leurs pages de discussions ni envoyer de courriel. FrankyLeRoutier (talk) 18:47, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Unless there is a local policy that states otherwise, I think we generally require a local discussion and notice to the users before removing userrights. MBisanz talk 00:34, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
Hmm, this user wasn't apparently listed at Admin activity review/2016/Data due to this. According to this (diff), that voting was annulled by the same user who proposed it. Matiia (talk) 18:00, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
So, should we remove the userright for falling under the Admin Activity Review practice here or has fr.wikibooks opted out of removal of inactive users? MBisanz talk 12:37, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

Coet@ca.wikipedia[edit]

The used has not decided to seek re-election as a CheckUser. Could you please remove his CU flag, while keeping the admin one? Thanks, --Townie (talk) 18:31, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Since 2012 no re-elections were held. And I see no reminder on his user talk. Did someone ask him whether he wanted to reapply? Trijnsteltalk 20:25, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
The need of a new re-election was discussed here, and he said he wanted to collaborate again but he may not be able to this summer. Nonetheless, this comment was made after the election process was opened, so he must have seen it. --Townie (talk) 07:49, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
We assume he might have seen it, but perhaps he didn't. I still would like to see a reminder, and then wait for 2 weeks or so... Trijnsteltalk 12:37, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
Message sent. Thanks for everything, --Townie (talk) 16:45, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
I have seen it. I don't know if I can keep my flag after the new situation where cawiki users have decided to have a new Checkuser. They assumed I didn't want to renew my flag because I was absent. If there is no place to three Checkuser I understand that I must loose my flag, no matter about it. Coet (talk) 15:34, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
@Coet: Please confirm if you are resigning the CU flag or you wish to check with the community first. Thanks, —MarcoAurelio 15:41, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
There is no policy against having more than 2 CUs—just fewer. As long as the minimal activity requirements are met there isn't a policy concern. The local project may implement an activity policy that is more restrictive should it choose. -- Avi (talk) 16:17, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
As a local bureaucrat I can confirm there was a renewal of local checkusers, user Coet did not apply for renewal and there is a community consensus for do not maintain such user right for users without a minimum activity. Please, remove his checkuser access per community decision. That said, I thank Coet for his work and his community engagement. --Vriullop (talk) 19:47, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

Basio@ukwiki[edit]

I would like to have my current status revoked. --Basio (talk) 07:40, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold: Standard operating procedure to hold regular self-requests for 24 hours. -- Avi (talk) 16:15, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Samral@azwikipedia[edit]

Məndən idarəçilik statusunun alınmasını istəyirəm. (translate.google.com: I want my admin status removed.)--Samral (talk) 10:02, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

On hold for 24 hours per standard practice. (24 saat beklenecektir.).--HakanIST (talk) 10:35, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

tufor@plwikipedia, tufor@plwikimedia[edit]

Please remove my admin rights on these wikis as I no longer need them. Thanks, tufor (talk) 17:41, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold for 24 hours per standard practice. Trijnsteltalk 21:20, 24 May 2017 (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
