js update[edit]

Can somebody help here? Thank you, Conny (talk) 17:44, 3 June 2016 (UTC).

Hello Conny. You can request temporary adminship for Nirmos at Steward requests/Permissions. Typically you should have a local community discussion on dewikinews first to make sure there are no objections. —Pathoschild 18:26, 04 June 2016 (UTC)

insults and curses[edit]

Can anyone take care of that matter? Kumkumuk insultes and curses other users, just like here. In which he spreads slander and insultes someone's mother. -- Mirzali (talk) 10:26, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi, is not Wikimedia Foundation's project. You need to contact the administrators there. Anyway, only you can see your messages on Special:NewMessages. --Stryn (talk) 10:48, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

global vs local stewards?[edit]

Hi im just wondering, There is a "global group" of stewards while a "local meta steward" group. Whats the difference? MechQuester (talk) 23:40, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Local steward group have the following rights:
  • Create or modify global abuse filters (abusefilter-modify-global)
  • Edit all user rights (userrights)
  • Edit user rights of users on other wikis (userrights-interwiki)
  • Lock or unlock global account (centralauth-lock)
  • Make and remove global blocks (globalblock)
  • Not be affected by rate limits (noratelimit)
  • Rename global accounts (centralauth-rename)
  • Suppress or hide global account (centralauth-oversight)
  • Unmerge global account (centralauth-unmerge)

These rights are only used on meta. The global steward group does not have these rights, but have various rights and global steward group can modify the global groups of all users and add rights on the global groups. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 23:45, 15 January 2017 (UTC).

Ah, I understand. Thank you. MechQuester (talk) 01:06, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
To add some reasoning to the technical facts, we have it separated this way for a reason. Things in the Meta group are functions that we expect to be done from Meta - editing user rights, globally blocking, etc. This is done for transparency, so all those actions are centralized here. The global group is for permissions that need to be individually held on each wiki, such as block/delete and all of the passive rights for viewing deleted or suppressed content. – Ajraddatz (talk) 01:54, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

Female stewards[edit]

Are there female stewards of wikimedia?--WDCDECDCDC (talk) 05:37, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

hmm im indeed genuinely curious as to what interest one may have in making that inquiry, i.e. can you elaborate on the fundaments of that question? just a passing interest97.90.91.57 20:53, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

Block log change[edit]

Hi, Are Stewards able to change block log reasons ?, Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 23:24, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

No. --MF-W 14:48, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
MF-Warburg - So can anyone edit it no?, Point is I was blocked for an incorrect reason & was hoping it could be changed, Thanks. –Davey2010Talk 00:03, 9 March 2017 (UTC)
No, log entries cannot be edited. It is possible however to change incorrect block reasons by unblocking a user and reblocking him with a corrected reason. --MF-W 08:38, 9 March 2017 (UTC)
Ah I did think that to be honest, Okie dokie thanks for your help much appreciated. –Davey2010Talk 15:26, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

How steward permissions can be given?[edit]

To be a steward, you must have attached accounts from all wikis in all languages? 23:28, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

Anchor for list of Stewards[edit]

Could someone with insight add an anchor for the section with the stewards’ list working in all languages, please? I know for an overview I could link to [[:m:Special:ListUsers/steward]], but there is no way to get the count. {{NUMBERINGROUP:steward}} does not work from other wikis. — Speravir (talk– 22:15, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

I do not think that you can do this without using API. Ruslik (talk) 19:17, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: Do you misunderstand me? The reason for asking for an anchor (it should work by adding one outside of the translate tag) is, because it does not work. With the anchor I could link to the section with the count using [[Special:MyLanguage/Stewards#$anchor]]. API may work (though I do not know how), but is not that nice for interproject linking. — Speravir (talk– 18:22, 17 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done: Special:MyLanguage/Stewards#list. Stryn (talk) 18:30, 17 August 2017 (UTC)
Nice. Thank you, Stryn. — Speravir (talk– 22:48, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
As I understood you asked for an interwiki equivalent of {{NUMBERINGROUP:steward}}. The answer is that there is none. Ruslik (talk) 17:54, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

Globally blocked sockmaster[edit]

en:User:Modern Fire is globally blocked. This editor has a large sockfarm. Can that courtesy be extended to the many sockpuppets please? This one will need to be watched as more sock are being discovered. Mjroots (talk) 19:50, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

This account is not globally blocked. Ruslik (talk) 17:26, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Please remove[edit]

I would appreciate if any kind steward helps to remove my email address from this protected page. Thank you! Jim Carter (talk) 07:55, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
