Requests and proposals Steward requests (Permissions) latest archive
Shortcut:
SRP

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.

  • Requests for bot flags are handled at SRB, and requests for global permissions are handled at SRGP.
  • 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

1. Place the following code at the bottom of the appropriate section below:

==== Username@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

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.

Requests

COPY THE FOLLOWING CODE to the bottom of the appropriate section below:

==== User name@xxproject ====
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    =
 |user name =
 |discussion= 
}}

Administrator access

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.

Requests for removal of access should be posted at the section below.

Please start a new discussion about requesting the permission on the local village pump, administrators' noticeboard or a designated page for requesting permissions each time you request or renew adminship.

  • Discussions should be open for seven days. Please request adminship here seven days after discussions started. This page is not the place for any discussions or votes. (For wikis with few active users, it is OK to have no comments.)
  • If you only want adminship for specific tasks, please state for how long and for which tasks you need it. Otherwise stewards will decide whether to assign permanent adminship and the duration of adminship. See Steward requests/Permissions/Minimum voting requirements.

@Alp Er Tunqa: Is the user nominated as temporary admin? or another one? --Sotiale (talk) 11:35, 16 September 2021 (UTC)[]

no thing about time but i think that 6 month temporary adminship is better in first step. --Alp Er Tunqa (talk) 04:59, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]

@Alp Er Tunqa: Thanks for reply. But I wonder if this is your personal opinion or the consensus of the community. If it's not clear, please ask the community to comment on this. Otherwise, I must treat this as a permanent adminship request. --Sotiale (talk) 03:51, 19 September 2021 (UTC)[]

This is just my personal opinion.--Alp Er Tunqa (talk) 05:31, 19 September 2021 (UTC)[]

@Sotiale: ? --Alp Er Tunqa (talk) 05:56, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Yes check.svg Done. --Sotiale (talk) 02:51, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Caro de Segada@bi.wikipedia

There is literally nobody but me working at that Wikipedia and there are articles to delete as some people is adding junk pages. --Caro de Segeda (talk) 06:09, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Please, post a note about your intention on a local forum. Ruslik (talk) 07:06, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]
But there is nobody to answer it. Shall I still do so? --Caro de Segeda (talk) 11:38, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]
@Caro de Segeda: Yes, even with few editors or nobody you should give the opportunity to anyone express their opinion about your request for adminship. There is no problem if no one comment and/or vote, but this opportunity should exist. You can do this creating a topic on the Village Pump, local page for permissions, or some other visible place. After this, please, post the link here. Thank you, stanglavine msg 17:00, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]
@Stanglavine: Here it is. --Caro de Segeda (talk) 17:46, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Again, there are people adding crap to the pages, can I please get the permission as sson as possible, please? --Caro de Segeda (talk) 07:14, 24 September 2021 (UTC)[]
On hold until 17:45, 30 September 2021 (UTC). Let's wait one week for possible votes per guidelines. Stryn (talk) 07:22, 24 September 2021 (UTC)[]

In the meantime, can anyone block to users who are adding pages in Turkish and Farsi to the Bislama Wikipedia? This, this and this. --Caro de Segeda (talk) 09:24, 24 September 2021 (UTC)[]

@Caro de Segeda: I’m not a steward, but just for your information, if you think there is/are obvious reason(s) that pages should be deleted/users should be blocked, you can make a request at GSR. --Trezoo (talk) 10:11, 24 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Requesting temporary adminship--Hulged (talk) 07:47, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Interface administrator access

See Interface admin for information about this user group.

  • If you are requesting adminship and the interface admin at the same time, you can file one request in administrator section and state you want interface adminship as well.
  • MediaWiki interface translations are done at translatewiki.net. Please do not request interface administrator access solely for that purpose; your request will be declined.
  • Since the end of 2018, all interface administrators are required to have two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled. Please, enable it before posting your request here.

  • Stewards: Please use {{Systmp}} for approved temporary requests.

Requests for removal of access should be posted at the section below.

Please start a new discussion about requesting the permission on the local village pump, administrators' noticeboard or a designated page for requesting permissions each time you request or renew interface adminship.

  • Discussions should be open for seven days. Please request interface adminship here seven days after discussions started. This page is not the place for any discussions or votes. (For wikis with few active users, it is OK to have no comments.)
  • If you only want interface adminship for specific tasks, please state for how long and for which tasks you need it. Otherwise stewards will decide whether to assign permanent interface adminship and the duration of interface adminship. See Steward requests/Permissions/Minimum voting requirements.

Bureaucrat access

See bureaucrat for information about this user group.
  • In principle, requests for temporary bureaucrat access are not granted.
  • A small project does not need bureaucrats. Currently whether a promotion is valid or not is decided by stewards. See here for a guideline.

Requests for removal of access should be posted at the section below.

CheckUser access

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 .

Hidayatsrf@idwikipedia

Approved by community vote. dwadieff 02:31, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Yes check.svg Done. @Trijnstel: Please and thanks :) --Sotiale (talk) 02:54, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Oversight access

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

  • 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, provide a link to the discussion, with 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.
  • To request the removal of another user's permissions for inactivity, link to your local inactivity policy. If your site does not have inactivity policy, the global policy Admin activity review applies.
  • See the instructions above for adding new requests. Please post new requests at the bottom of the section.

Miscellaneous requests

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
