This page hosts requests for rights access on the Wikimania wiki. The following roles are able to be granted, and by which existing role

  • account creator
  • IP block exempt
  • translation administrator
  • bot
  • interface administrator
  • administrator
  • bureaucrat
steward (from Meta)
  • transwiki importer
  • importer

All roles, and the respective rights, can be seen at Special:ListGroupRights, though it is not envisaged that those other rights would normally be required at this wiki.


At this stage, the overarching management of the wiki is within the control of the respective organising committee or the parent chapter for the forthcoming Wikimania, which for 2021 is Wikimedia Thailand and the ESEAP partnership, and it is envisaged that they will designate the appointment and removal of the administrators and bureaucrats from their committees, or from volunteers assisting in the management of the wiki.

Rights may be granted on either a temporary or an ongoing basis.

Requests for rights should be made below with an explanation of your reason for requesting the rights, and if you have experience in that role, and where.

I'd like to request administrator rights in order to be able to translate Mediawiki messages (mostly in the sidebar) to Swedish. Ainali (talk) 09:36, 18 July 2021 (UTC)

please use Wikimania:Mediawiki pages with translations/sv for the Swedish messages.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:09, 21 July 2021 (UTC)

I am requesting Translation admin rights in order to mark pages for translation when needed. I am already translationadmin on Meta and Lingua Libre, therefore I am familiar with the extension. Thank you. WikiLucas00 (talk) 14:23, 19 July 2021 (UTC)

I am requesting admin rights to add/edit a resources page for this year's Wikimania with images/other media (example) for use to promote Wikimania, celebrate and more. I am a designer in the Communications department at the Wikimedia Foundation. Thank you HDothiduc (WMF) (talk) 18:04, 28 July 2021 (UTC)

request for translation admin rights[edit source]

Hi, all

I've just discovered pages exist and translated a few of them from EN -> FR, on the flow. I have already a background in such translations (see my activity) and I can extend them to too if needed. Is it possible to request translator admin rights here ? The purpose would be to split/correct/adapt EN texts into translation units and made them translatable like I usually do, without requesting each time the help of an admin beacause a tag is misplaced or other.
