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 -->

}}

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 Uğurkent[edit]

Hello, I'm editor in tr.wiki and tr.wikiquote. I'm trying to prevent copyright and vandalism in 12 local wiki. Thousands article of local wiki, Commons ve others project I'm marking for deletion. Some Turkish wikis who I am almost the only active users, this authority will be much easier my job. I'm a content editor easy to get back vandalism of wikis, many things are changing inactive wikis. Copyright examiners in local wiki also am continuing. --Uğurkenttalk 16:24, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose. You only edited 12 wikis in total so far. --MF-W 17:31, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
    Just trying to be active wikis in English and Turkish. As well as German. More than local wiki have to do changes? How much local wiki? --Uğurkenttalk 18:01, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
    You can see how many local wikis we have on Special:SiteMatrix. --MF-W 14:26, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose per MF-W. Please read GR (specifically "demonstrably active in cross-wiki countervandalism or anti-spam activities [..] and make heavy use of revert on many wikis" part) and GR doesn't let you mark pages for deletion. --Glaisher (talk) 15:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Global sysop for Kaganer[edit]

Not ending before 9 October 2014 07:21 UTC

Hello, I'm admin in mw: and udm:, also i'm translation admin in d:, commons:, and Meta. Also i'm participant of project for support small wikis in regional (indigenous) languages of Russia (in Russian Wikipedia). These rights require me to helping these small wikis in solving technical problems. --Kaganer (talk) 07:21, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Support Support longtime trusted person. -- Vlsergey (talk) 11:56, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
@Kaganer: Please state exactly why you need the GS tools. --Glaisher (talk) 17:29, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
Improving Sidebar and other MediaWiki messages (by requests from local users), revert vandal edits (and protect some pages with recurring vandalism), works in protected templates, creating and configuring common.js, common.css and gadgets, etc. In some small wiki very little local administrators and they are often inactive. A lot of small things could be done directly, without trying to reach "sleeping" admins. Also I am constantly helping local administrators (something more than 6 years), and very annoying to many times to explain something, instead show just done right. In such projects, each active participant - is worth its weight in gold. If there is an opportunity to make their work more convenient - I believe you need to use it. Example of these small work (by request) - sah:Кыттааччы:Kaganer/MediaWiki:Sp-contributions-footer (need to move in MediaWiki namespace). --Kaganer (talk) 19:51, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
I just moved that page. --MF-W 20:05, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
Very thanks, but this one example only. And this not worked (not displayed in the Special:Contributions) without another actions... --Kaganer (talk) 12:56, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
Sure, I just wanted to solve it; now that you already mentioned it. The box is shown on Special:Contributions, however only if you use Udmurt as your interface language. That is bugzilla:1495/bugzilla:48956. --MF-W 14:33, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
I already guessed :( Please also move sah:Кыттааччы:Kaganer/MediaWiki:Anontools and sah:Кыттааччы:Kaganer/MediaWiki:Sp-contributions-footer-anon.--Kaganer (talk) 09:54, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose "in solving technical problem" is outside the scope of GS tools.--Jasper Deng (talk) 19:14, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. This is useful work which helps small projects in a very similar way to just deleting vandalism and spam. Many GSes even do such things, even if they maybe requested it only for blocking vandals. --MF-W 20:05, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Whilst I appreciate your willingness to help, I have a feeling your needs could be covered by the global editinterface right. As for countervandalism, per your reply to Glaisher, I would like to see more experience and activity in that area before granting GS. Savhñ 21:17, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
    I'm sorry, but 'countervandalism' for me - is not "extraordinary" actions. This part of normal daily work, which (as I accidentally thought) I somehow have been doing for over 10 years. This is a quick rollback, fixing incorect renaming, semi-protection often vandalized pages, etc. (what I do, for example, in MediaWiki.org - as local admin). I try not to ask for more rights than I need for real work, and than I can use. Well, if it seems that enough 'global editinterface' rights - I'll be satisfied. I really thought I could at the same time helping small wikis in other things, but if there is a concern that I suddenly begin to abuse them, or to intervene in local conflicts, or the main content of the projects - then, of course, I will not pursue this.
  • Support Support Trusted and experienced editor with a clear need for this right. INeverCry 21:47, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. Trusted user willing to help the small wikis. It's not like global sysop scope is limited to antivandalism purposes. --Glaisher (talk) 14:58, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
    Thanks for support ;) It's like 'global support', and 'global sysop' rights are well suited for this. --Kaganer (talk) 08:09, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support Support per above. Jianhui67 talkcontribs 15:26, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support Support. Efficient, experienced, helpful. --Denis Sacharnych (talk) 08:02, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support Support Some wikis a good situation to sysop. --Uğurkenttalk 18:26, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
  • No objections; seems like a good enough reason to ask for this right to me. Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 15:38, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Global sysop for Pmlineditor[edit]

Not ending before 13 October 2014 18:27 UTC

I've been an active SWMT member for about five years (with several periods of inactivity in the past two years admittedly) and am a global rollbacker since 2009 and was a global sysop (removed due to inactivity) for about three years. Now that I am more or less back and have been active, I am requesting to get the global sysop right again. I'll primarily focus on handling crosswiki spam / vandalism and obviously won't do anything controversial. I'm an admin on simplewiki, meta, enwikiquote, simplewiktionary if that is relevant. Thank you for your consideration. Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 18:27, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Fine by me, though only if you stay active this time. :) Trijnsteltalk 20:56, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Global rename for Wong128hk[edit]

Not ending before 6 October 2014 16:44 UTC - Can imho be closed after three days, thus 25 September. Trijnsteltalk 15:32, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I'm admin from zh.wiki since Sep 2008, 'crat & admin from zh.wikibooks since Feb 2011 and admin from zh.wikt since May 2013. I have gained certain experience on dealing renaming requests through performing the duties of 'crat of zh.wikibooks. There are few users understanding Chinese handling the requests indeed. Therefore, I'd like to get the access in order to share their workloads on zh.wiki as well as help handling requests from other sister projects, for instance, zh.wikibooks, zh.wikt, etc. --J.Wong 16:44, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
