Wikinews:Requests for permissions

(Redirected from Wikinews:RfP)

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 either submit their own requests (self-nomination) or be nominated by other users.

This page also hosts requests for removal of access and for reconfirmation.

Requests for adminshipEdit

  • 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.
  • 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 bureaucratshipEdit

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

To add a nomination:

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

Questions and commentsEdit

  •   Comment You have no experience on this project at all. Your account has only existed for a couple of hours, and most of the edits you've made on the wikimedia sisterhood as a whole have been requesting elevated rights on various projects. That's not a productive way to approach the projects. Make yourself useful on the projects, and over time show that you're worthy of an elevated level of trust. There'll be plenty of time later for you to decide whether you can help some project by wielding some elevated privilege somewhere. --Pi zero (talk) 13:58, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

Requests for reconfirmationEdit

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 OversightEdit

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 sign the Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information. 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 ===
