This page hosts requests for global permissions. To make a request, read the relevant policy (global rollback, global sysop, global rename, …) and make a request below. Explain why membership is needed for that group, and detail prior experience or qualifications.
This is not a vote and any active Wikimedia editor may participate in the discussion.
Successful global rollback requests require no fewer than 5 days of discussion, successful global renamer requests require no fewer than 3 days (if the user is a bureaucrat) or 2 weeks (if the user is not a bureaucrat or if valid concerns are raised), while successful global sysop discussions require no fewer than 2 weeks.

Requests for global rollback permissions[edit]

Symbol comment vote.svg Please be sure to follow the instructions below:
Your request might be rejected if you don't follow the instructions, and not doing so would reflect poorly on your suitability.
Please also review the Global rollback policy.
Instructions for making a request

Before requesting, make sure that:

  1. You have sufficient activity to meet the requirements to be allocated the global rollback flag
  2. You have a global account;
  3. You are logged in on this wiki, and the account is part of your global account;
To make a request
Copy the template below to the bottom of this section and explain of why you need the access and why you're suitable.
=== Global rollback for [[User:Foo|Foo]] ===
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!-- don't change this line -->
 |domain    = global <!-- don't change this line -->
 |user name = Username
}}

The request will be approved if consensus to do so exists after a period of consideration of no less than 5 days (no exceptions are allowed no matter how obvious the result may seem). This is not a vote, and all input is welcome. Stewards will determine whether consensus exists; when doing so it is likely that the weight given to the input of those involved in cross-wiki work will be most influential.

Global rollback for Atcovi[edit]

Hey all! I'm Atcovi, and today I'd like to request for the right of global rollback. For anyone who knows about my checkered past, I feel like I have grown out of it. I feel like I'm out of my troubled past here on Wikimedia, and I have realized my mistakes. I know how to use rollback, since I've used it at Wikibooks, where I'm a sysop and editor at. I'm also a rollbacker on Simple Wiktionary. I also think I've showed a heavy use of rollback as well, being currently active in SWMT work. It's also pretty annoying having to clash with someone, or when someone else has beat me to a revert (we all know that feeling). I also think that this right isn't necessarily a big deal, just one press of a button. I know what vandalism/spam/unconstructive edits are, and can easily identify them. Thank you. --Atcovi (talk) 22:54, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Global sysop for NahidSultan[edit]

Not ending before 29 March 2015 19:15 UTC

Hello Mates,
I'm Nahid and I'd like to apply for GS bit. I usually do clean up works on small wikis and active SWMT member since September 2014. Speaking of clean-up, I usually search for duplicate commons file/unused non-free files, useless redirect, empty pages, gibberish, etc. and mark them for deletion. With the GS tool I'd like to do the things myself i'm currently doing and will look into other stuffs as well. You can find me on irc under the nick NahidSultan in multiple Wikimedia channels including #cvn-sw. I am currently a sysop on bnwiki, bnwikibooks (temporary), commons and meta. I fairly active on every projects i'm holding advance rights and I do know how the sysop bit works. I surely concern about the scope of GS and also concern where I can use the tool and where it shouldn't be used. Now, some of my fellow colleagues might be concerned that I should rather get the GR butten before taking this one. Well, my answer is that I simply don't need GR right now. I occasionally revert vandalism and global twinkle is doing just fine. Please feel free to ask if you've something in mind, I'd happy to answer. Thanks for your time. Cheers, ~ Nahid Talk 19:15, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

  • I think NahidSultan's SWMT is exemplary, but I don't understand why so many of the deletion taggings in luxo's tool were declined, e.g. [1], [2], [3]. In all of these cases the deletion tagging seems technically correct, but as a GS just remember to leave such cases to local admins where they exist and are active (I know I'm being hypocritical here...) In the case of the nv.wikipedia tags, another user had already tagged the page for deletion incorrectly so maybe you should have checked history before deleting. I have yet to see a single tagging I disagreed with though. PiRSquared17 (talk) 17:17, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
If the pages/files are needed locally it is totally fine with me. But the actual fact is that most of the broken pages or files are too much old and no one cares whether they are broken or unused and non-free. Also, most of them are not linked. So at this point i believe it's futile to keep them. Some people may prefer the idea of having files locally but given the size and cost implications, I can see no valid reason (without some exception) for hosting files locally when they are available on commons as a duplicate. I don't know either why they want it to keep while no article is linked with this page. Images like this even if they are uploaded by the website owner might be promotional. Again, if the local community agreed on such cases, I'm okay with that. Though I check the history when tagging but i'll be more careful next time. BTW, This was a clear mistake of mine, I should've seen that's a bot usertalk page Face-smile.svg ~ Nahid Talk 18:19, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the detailed response. Additionally, in case it wasn't obvious before, this is a strong Support Support. PiRSquared17 (talk) 03:23, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

  1. You have a global account;
  2. You are logged in on this wiki, and the account is part of your global account;
  3. You have considered the addition of a Babel language box on your user page

<!-- or for bureaucrats as of 31 August 2014-->
:''Not ending before {{subst:#time:j F Y H:i|+3 day}} UTC''

If you are not an existing bureaucrat (as of 31 August 2014), the request will be approved if consensus to do so exists after a period of consideration of no less than two weeks (no exceptions are allowed no matter how obvious the result may seem). This is not a vote, and all input is welcome. Stewards will determine whether consensus exists; when doing so it is likely that the weight given to the input of those involved in cross-wiki work will be most influential.

If you are a bureaucrat (as of 31 August 2014) and have experience with renames, your request will be reviewed by the community for a minimum of 3 days, and can then be expedited by a steward as per Global renamers policy if there is no concern to issue the rights. If there is sufficient concern about issuing the rights, then nominations will run for the full two week period.

Global rename for Jmvkrecords[edit]

Hi all wikimedians. After a message from Alexmar983, and consider it, I ask the community to evaluate if I can be a global renamer. This is my second request. My motivation is the same I exposed on the last request. Even if I am a bureaucrat since May 2014, due tu my limited experience renaming users (5 in a couple of months), I consider appropriate to give 2 weeks more for discussion, Jmvkrecords (Intra Talk) 20:42, 24 March 2015 (UTC).

  • (Edit conflict.) I have no objection to this, but AFAIK, it's not en.wp editfilter editor who steal/take abuse/editfilter from other wiki, it's abusefilter editor/sysop from other wikis that steal/take editfilter from en.wp.--AldNonymousBicara? 20:04, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
What will you do (if I understand correctly your intentions) if you find an inefficient private filter? --Vituzzu (talk) 20:10, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
FWIW there is only one thing he is technically able to do - inform a local admin. He doesn't have editing permissions with this right. Ajraddatz (talk) 20:45, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
I know, my question actually deals with how will he contact sysops, by which mean ;) I already saw he's a long-standing sysop so I'm pretty sure he'll use the proper secret means of communication. --Vituzzu (talk) 21:04, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
Aah, apologies, I misunderstood :) Ajraddatz (talk) 22:20, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I will wave the proper magic chicken, specifically would want this to be handled by local sysops. xaosflux Talk 00:07, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Global abusefilter helper for Glaisher[edit]

I've also occasionally had situations where having this would've been helpful. I asked stewards and local sysops on IRC whenever I needed to view a private filter but viewing it myself is probably more efficient. I've used it to improve filters on simplewiki and have helped in fixing local filters on other wikis. Regards, Glaisher (talk) 16:09, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Conditional support in case you know how to read and access filters without admin help. Vogone (talk) 16:40, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
I believe that I do. [4] [5] and on various GS wikis. Glaisher (talk) 16:44, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
That proves you are able to access and edit filters. What about evidence you are able to read but not edit them? Vogone (talk) 16:46, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
Well, it'd be hard to edit a filter which was written by someone else without reading and understanding it. Glaisher (talk) 16:49, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm much impressed by your answers. You're clearly suitable for these advanced permissions and have my clear support. Vogone (talk) 16:51, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
