this page should also show the process of how someone becomes a bureaucrat correct? Billycop32 (talk) 08:35, 28 June 2013 (UTC)Reply

It could, but it's basically the same as the way someone gets any other right. Also, it varies by which wiki we are discussing:
  1. A trusted user who is (probably) already an admin makes a request to become a bureaucrat.
  2. The local community discusses the request.
  3. If consensus to promote is reached, then a the situation will be handled in one of the following ways:
    If there are already local bureaucrats, and they can grant bureaucrat access, then one of them promotes the user.
    If no local user can promote the user to 'crat, then someone requests it on SRP, linking to the local consensus.

Something went wrong[edit]

@Iliev: Are Bureaucrat themselves can remove their own permissions (include Bureaucrat)? Bill Cipher, Stan, Twins, Dipper - Gravity falls and J.Smile 13:08, 7 August 2020 (UTC)Reply

No, bureaucrats in the normal setup cannot remove either sysop or bureaucrat status once granted. On some wikis listed in the main page they may be able to remove those, but that is the exception. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:11, 7 August 2020 (UTC)Reply

Can crats grant interfaceadmins to themselves?[edit]

Can crats grant interfaceadmins to themselves? If so, it would mean a huge security problem. Thingofme (talk) 04:47, 10 June 2022 (UTC)Reply

Request from the stewards[edit]

I hope this is the page where this request should be written. In the Hebrew Wikipedia, a vote to remove bureaucrat user:Dovno rights has ended. The vote ended with the following results: A total of 149 voting .42.3% voted for removal. 57.7% voted iagainst. see here

I ask that you decide according to the results. Thanks Hanay (talk) 19:42, 10 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Hanay Steward requests/Permissions#Removal of access is where you should move this request. Best regards --Johannnes89 (talk) 19:49, 10 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
Oh sorry I misunderstood, you are not asking for removal but for a steward to basically certify the results? Why can't the other local bureaucrats do that? Usually stewards don't interfere in local matters, but you may raise this at Stewards' noticeboard. Johannnes89 (talk) 19:54, 10 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
