This page documents a Miraheze global policy, this policy follows consensus and/or Staff guidelines. All Miraheze users should follow it, and changes made to it should be discussed on the talk page.


To contact a Steward, please visit the Stewards' noticeboard, email stewards at or directly contact one of the Stewards listed at the bottom of the page.

Scope of responsibilities

Les Stewards sont des utilisateurs possédant la permission et la possibilité d'utiliser tous les droits MediaWiki sur n'importe quel wiki. Les Stewards travaillent avec les communautés pour aborder les problèmes auxquels elles sont confrontées localement tels que les disputes, les comportements abusifs ou perturbateurs ainsi que les problèmes globaux tels que les comportements perturbateurs sur plusieurs wikis. Cela inclut l'attribution des droits globaux et locaux, l'utilisation des permissions d'administrateur local (suppression, blocage, etc.) et de manière globale (verrouillage de comptes, renommages etc.), CheckUser et oversight. En cas d'augmentation des demandes d'aide des Stewards, ceux-ci peuvent déléguer certaines de ces responsabilités à d'autres utilisateurs. Par exemple, les actions routinières d'administrateur peuvent être déléguées à des 'administrateurs globaux' ou similaires, si besoin est.


Les utilisateurs peuvent proposer leur propre candidature ou celle d'autres utilisateurs pour remplir le rôle de Steward, ou les Stewards actuels peuvent déclencher une élection s'ils décident, en tant que groupe, que d'autres Stewards sont nécessaires. Après une nomination acceptée, une auto-nomination ou une élection à la demande des Stewards, tous les utilisateurs de Miraheze seront autorisés à faire des commentaires sur le(s) candidat(s).

  • Users will be given an adequate time to comment on nominations
  • Any issues raised should be acknowledged or fixed by the nominee
  • If possible, any issues raised should be addressed before the closing of the nomination/election
  • Users may Support/Symbol neutral vote.svg Abstain/ Oppose nominees, but this alone will not decide the outcome
  • An existing Steward will close the nomination/election after taking into consideration the arguments made, not just the support/oppose count
  • For the nomination/election to be successful, there must be at least 20 user's comments and a support ratio of at least 80%

Removal & Readdition of rights


Stewards who do not participate in the community in some form (responding to questions, dealing with issues, administrative tasks on meta as a minimum) for 6 months will be deemed inactive and have their steward rights revoked. For the purpose of community, this includes all wikis and Phabricator.

This is and should be seen as a pretty relaxed requirement. Like everyone else here, Stewards are volunteers. Stewards should feel comfortable performing any of their responsibilities when it is possible for them to do so. Six months time should be enough time for any Steward logging in to acknowledge their responsibilities. This inactivity requirement is mainly to prevent having users with elevated access after they have moved on.

Readdition of rights

A Steward who lost their rights for any reason must successfully reapply for rights again per the appointment section above.

Revocation of rights

Stewards can have their permission revoked through a vote of no confidence or a request for removal.

  • The person starting the vote or opening the request must provide a valid reason for removal of Steward rights (mistrust, abuse, inactivity, etc.)
  • At least 20 users must comment on the vote of no confidence or request for removal (the same number of users required to appoint a Steward)

If at least 50% of user comments are for the removal of rights, then the Steward shall remove their own rights upon closure of the vote or have their rights removed by another Steward.

If Stewards as a group feel that a user is intentionally calling for votes of no confidence or requests for removal without valid reasons, Stewards may decide to ignore requests or votes started by said user. If there is actually an issue, another user may bring it up with the Stewards.

Term length

Stewards terms are not limited to a set time length. Users may call for a vote of non-confidence or request for removal at any time, as above.
