If you'd like to be able to have the right on a non-temporary basis, there are things you could do:
- You could run for a regular Steward position (We should have elections in January), which contains that right. You'd be restricted to doing fixes on projects that didn't already have active admins, though. You would need to be reconfirmed for the right yearly to keep this right.
- You could run for a Steward position, but clarify that you're only accepting the position to use Editinterface, and that you intend to do so on projects with admins also. You would need to be reconfirmed for the right yearly to keep this right. Frankly, I don't think this would work: Admins tend to be rather territorial.
- You could place yourself into the Steward elections, but specify that you are only interested in the global Editinterface right. You would need to be reconfirmed for the right yearly to keep this right.
There's no real way that someone can get a global right like this and keep it without some sort of annual confirmation, but I'd expect that if your work has been helping across multiple projects, those people benefiting from your labor would happily support you, right? Good luck. Kylu 01:55, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
2016 Community Wishlist Survey
You’re getting this message because you participated in the 2015 Community Wishlist Survey and we want to make sure you don't miss it this year – or at least can make the conscious choice to ignore if it you want to. The 2015 survey decided what the Community Tech team should work on during 2016. It was also the focus of Wikimedia hackathons and work by other developers. You can see the status of wishes from the 2015 wishlist at 2015 Community Wishlist Survey/Results.
The 2016 Community Wishlist Survey is now open for wishes. You can create proposals until November 20. You will be able to vote on which wishes you think are best or most important between November 28 and December 12. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 11:17, 14 November 2016 (UTC)
