Before applying for stewardship, please make sure that you:

  • agree to abide by the Steward policies;
  • have an active user account on this Meta wiki;
  • have an account on at least one Wikimedia Foundation project where you have been active for at least three months.

Also, because the work stewards can become involved in can lead to legal consequences and involvement, you must be:

  • at least 18 years old before the final day of voting;
  • willing to provide your full name and proof of identity to the Wikimedia Foundation.

Stewards are preferably multilingual, because steward-based operations often involve projects of varying language. They should also be available on a reasonably common basis. Among other limitations, stewards are discouraged from using their access on projects that they are active on, to avoid conflicts of interest, and are encouraged to watch and lend assistance at the Meta request pages (such as permissions, bot status, and checkuser information). If you use IRC, please join #wikimedia-stewardsconnect on freenode to answer requests.

Inactive stewards will have their access removed.


If you want to be a steward, follow these steps.

Create your statement page[edit]

  1. Create a subpage at a page named "Stewards/elections 2009/statements/Your_username_here".
  2. Save it with the following text, which will place your initial nomination:
    {{subst:sr-new statement 2009}}
  3. Edit the page with the following information:
    • Your real name (optional);
    • a link to your user account on Meta, and a link to a second active account that meets the prerequisites.
    • a list of languages you can read and write, using the language-independent Wikimedia shorthand (see w:Wikipedia:Babel).
    • a short summary of your participation in the Wikimedia Foundation. Of particular interest are administrator or bureaucrat status, volunteer work such as membership of the email response team or the Wikipedia Arbitration Committee, or any other information you feel is relevant. You can read other applicants' statements for more ideas.

When you are ready, list your subpage on the elections page by adding the following text in alphabetical order: "{{:Stewards/elections 2009/statements/Your_username_here}}". Volunteers will add translations in various languages to it for you.

Provide proof of identity[edit]


Proof of identity must be received before February 01, or you will be disqualified. Please see Steward handbook/email templates for the process for doing this.
