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.

Hello. I would like to request translation admin rights to be able to mark pages at Special:PageTranslation for translation. Since the next Wikimania is coming closer, there will be some more pages that need to be prepared for translation (the first page in 2022 namespace is already waiting for it) and I like to help out here. I have some experience with translation markup from other wikis. Thanks, --Ameisenigel (talk) 16:55, 14 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Billinghurst and Jdforrester: May one of you have a look, please? --Ameisenigel (talk) 21:34, 25 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
