Certain permissions (notably CheckUser and Oversight) additionally require users to confirm their identity. Users requesting these permissions must make a request below, and must also submit the relevant identification to the Foundation. The request is placed on hold temporarily, until receipt has been formally confirmed by the office.
To request CheckUser information, see Meta:Requests for CheckUser information. This is the place to request CheckUser access. Note that temporary CheckUser access is not permitted and the temporary status is only used by Stewards.
Stewards: When someone asks for CheckUser status, please check the current policy regarding bestowal of status before giving the status. The current mail template to use to request identification from the new CU can be found here. Do not grant CheckUser access unless the user is identified to the foundation, which will be announced on the Identification noticeboard. Breaching these rules may be cause for removing your steward access. When you give someone CheckUser, please list them on CheckUser, ask them to subscribe to checkuser-l, email checkuser-l-owner14pxlists.wikimedia.org so that the listadmins know the person is allowed on the mailing list (the list may contain confidential information), and make sure they contact an op for access to #wikimedia-checkuser.
As with Checkuser, do not initiate a request for oversight access here. You need to work through your local wiki. Some wikis have elections. Some wikis have their Arbitration Committee make the request once there is consensus on the local wiki. The request should show a link to the local wiki election results, or be made on behalf of an ArbCom by a member of that ArbCom, whichever is applicable.
Stewards: Do not grant Oversight access unless the user is identified to the foundation, which will be announced on the Identification noticeboard. When you give someone oversight access, list them on Oversight.
If you're requesting the removal of your own status, make sure you're logged in to a global accountor place an English note on your local user talk page to prove you own both accounts (and add the diff link of your local confirmation edit to the request).
To request the removal of another user's status, you must gain consensus on the local wiki first. All discussion must be kept on your local wiki. When there is community consensus that the user's access should be removed, a trusted person from that wiki should provide a link here to the discussion, a very brief explanation of the reason for the request, and summarize the results of discussion.
In either case, copy and paste the following text into the correct section (see instructions above).
==== username@xxproject ====
|status = <!-- don't change this line -->
|user name = <!-- local confirmation link / local policy link -->
Temporary permissions for emergency or technical access编辑
Stewards: Currently active temporary permissions are listed at /Approved temporary. When granting a request, please copy the request to the appropriate section there, and clearly state the date of removal. Requests only need remain listed below for a few days, and may afterward be removed as long as they have been copied to the subpage.
