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

  • uploader
  • IP block exempt
  • account creator
  • bot
  • interface administrator
  • administrator
  • bureaucrat
  • translation administrator (admins can grant this to themselves)
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. 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 am requesting translation administrator rights in order to be able to perform small tweaks where needed. Thanks — Ата (talk) 12:15, 3 December 2023 (UTC)Reply
