This page enables bureaucrats to handle requests for granting administrator, bureaucrat, checkuser, and oversight permissions, and revoking them on this wiki. Please be aware that we can only alter permissions for this wiki. To change permissions for any other wiki, check your local policies, or go to Meta.

For urgent requests, please join our IRC channel at #wikinews, and type !admin@enwikinews.

For requests for reviewer rights, use Wikinews:Flagged revisions/Requests for permissions.

Requests for adminship[edit]

  • Requesting adminship: You may be qualified for adminship if the following conditions are true:
  1. You've done at least two months' work on Wikinews.
  2. You are trusted by the community.
You can view some of the latest requests in the archive, where you can also see some common questions, comments, and objections made during the process.

  Add a new nomination  


  • Requesting de-adminship: Local project bureaucrats are able to remove administrator privileges. They, however, will not deadmin unless there is community consensus for this to happen, or at the request of the administrator in question.

After seven days, a bureaucrat will turn those users into sysops who have consensus support from the community. Do not list as administrators people who have not been granted the appropriate permissions by a bureaucrat!

See Wikinews:Requests for permissions/Archive for old requests. Don't forget to inform the Wikinews community of your RFA.



Requests for bureaucratship[edit]

  • Bureaucrats are trusted users by the community, that can handle requests for adminship and/or bureaucratship, remove these rights and rename users, amidst other rights.

To add a nomination:

  • Put the new nomination just below the "just below this line" comment.

Requests for removal of access[edit]

Remember: For requests for de-adminship or removal of other access rights, " Support" means "support removal of access rights", and " Oppose" means "oppose removal of access rights".


Note that we have a Category:Admins open to recall, which may offer a route to a request for reconfirmation.

Requests for reconfirmation[edit]

Any user in good standing may request a reconfirmation of an admin who has marked themselves open to recall here. Any administrator who would like a confirmation that he has the continued support of the community may also list themselves here. If you are requesting reconfirmation due to inactivity, click here.

Please use Support if you believe the listed administrator should retain their administrator privileges, or Oppose to vote for their removal.

Requests for CheckUser and Oversight[edit]

Confirming your identity

These rights require users to confirm their identity, and be at least 18 years old. Users requesting these permissions must make a request below, and must also submit the relevant identification to the Foundation. The request is placed on hold temporarily, until receipt has been formally confirmed by the office. All requests for CheckUser and Oversight must go through Meta, and should be made by a trusted administrator or bureaucrat following a clear successful vote.

Access and consensus for tools
  • Per Checkuser policy and Oversight policy at Meta, checkuser and oversight candidates must gain consensus of 70-80%, with a total of at least 25 supports, in order to be given access to the tools.
  • Checkuser and Oversight rights discussions should stay open for at least 2 weeks.

To add a nomination:

  • Put the new nomination just below the "just below this line" comment.
  • Suggested format:
==={{User|USERNAME}} — REQUESTED RIGHT ===
