Wikinews:Requests for permissions
Jump to navigation Jump to search
(Redirected from Wikinews:RFA)
Requests for permissions (RFP) is the process by which the Wikinews community decides which users can have access to the administrator, bureaucrat, checkuser, and oversight permissions.
- Users can submit their own requests (self-nomination), or
- Other users can nominate a candidate.
Please read the policy before making a request for permissions. See also the global permissions policy.
Previous requests have been archived, and contain some common questions, comments, and objections made during the process.
Create your request for permission:
You may be asked questions by other users so they can review your request. Please try to provide full answers.
The request must remain open for at least one or two weeks (depending on the permission sought). A bureaucrat will close the request and will also grant the appropriate flag, if the minimum criteria have been met. For CheckUser or Oversight, the bureaucrat will request the flag at Meta. Closed requests are moved to the Archives.
