Wikimedia:Requests for permissions

From Outreach Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Use this page to request to be a translation administrator, administrator, or a bureaucrat. All requests should be made below, instead of at the Village pump, which has traditionally served as the rights request page, in addition to user talk pages.

Note: Staff of the Wikimedia Foundation are exempt from this page, as their work automatically qualifies them for the role of Administrator on this site.

Requirements for administrators[edit]

As of 3 August 2017, the following are minimum qualifications for users who wish to become administrators on the Outreach Wiki. Note that the "administrator" flag is different from the "translation administrator" flag, and this change only affects the "administrator" flag.

  • 10,000 global edits under all registered accounts
  • At least 1 year as a registered user under the account which the requester proposes to use for admin activity on Outreach
  • No more than 1 active block across all Wikimedia projects on all of the user's accounts
  • The account which the user proposes for administrator activity on Outreach already has administrator permissions on at least one other Wikimedia wiki, with
  • at least 3,000 edits on that wiki
  • at least 1 year as an administrator on that wiki
  • at least 300 logged admin actions on that wiki
  • no blocks (other than self-requested blocks) within the past 5 years on that wiki. (The account doesn't need to be 5 years old.)

Requests for permissions[edit]

Symbol comment vote.svg Please be sure to follow the instructions below:
Your request might be rejected if you don't follow the instructions, and not doing so would reflect poorly on your suitability.
Please also review the appropriate policy for your requested user right.
Instructions for making a request

Before requesting, make sure that:

  1. You have sufficient activity to meet the requirements to be allocated the user right that you are asking
To make a request
Copy the template below to the bottom of this section and explain of why you need the access and why you're suitable.
=== [INSERT RIGHT HERE] rights request for [[User:Foo|Foo]] ===
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!-- don't change this line -->\
 |user name = Username
}}

The request will be approved if consensus to do so exists after a period of consideration of no less than 3 days (no exceptions are allowed no matter how obvious the result may seem). This is not a vote, and all input is welcome. Bureaucrats will determine whether consensus exists; when doing so it is likely that the weight given to the input of those involved in other project work will be most influential.
