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 Syum90[edit]

Global rollback for Ah3kal[edit]

I used to have global rollback under another account back in 2010 ([1], verification of the account claim, since then, I also used another account [2] - personal and privacy reasons) but asked for removal in the same year because of serious personal IRL reasons. Now I have again some time to spend helping swmt, and while I still can do similarly the job with global TW, it would be a bit more convinient with gr. If, though, the community is uncomfortable with the account changes, or the 4,5 years that passed, or anything else, I can wait. Ah3kal (talk) 12:12, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Global sysop for Érico Júnior Wouters[edit]

Not ending before 29 December 2014 19:13 UTC

Hello folks! I'd like to apply for global sysop access again (the first request was two years ago). I went GS between December 2012 to February 2014 and resigned for lack of time. I am sysop on Portuguese Wikipedia (log) and Commons (log). I have not been very active in SWMT in last year, but would return to do the anti vandalism work as GS in 2015. Thanks. Érico Wouters msg 19:13, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

  • AFAICS Érico's resignation was in good standing and he's proven that he knows how to use the tools, and wants to help again in GS activities, so I have no objections. -- M\A 23:06, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

  1. You have a global account;
  2. You are logged in on this wiki, and the account is part of your global account;

Global confirmed for global IP block exemptions[edit]

Status:    In progress

I just noticed that one of my accounts is not autoconfirmed on itwikisource, despite passing the thresholds long time ago. Turns out it's because we use $wgTorAutoConfirmAge and $wgTorAutoConfirmCount to require 90 days and 100 edits (since before gerrit), probably to avoid that one registers and gains autoconfirmed on a non-Tor IP and then uses the privilege via Tor, or something like that.

Given NOP, this restriction doesn't make sense for users which were exempted from TorBlock: they should gain confirmed status on each wiki normally. Given only few wikis require more than 4 days or 0 edits to get autoconfirmed, it would make sense to just compensate TorBlock and give them "confirmed" everywhere; objections? Alternatively, we could at least add skipcatcha, as exempted users are definitely not bots. --Nemo 11:34, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Just noting that there do appear to be at least two bots with the GIPBE flag. Not sure how or if that matters, though. Courcelles 17:15, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
If you are only concerned with CATCHA, there is a separate global group ('captcha-exempt') for it. Ruslik (talk) 05:06, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
Would you mind many bits in one account when you can simplified it? I mean, this is for GIpbe, and I am sure in the future similar case like this will happen again.--AldNonUcallin?☎ 12:30, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
That is not a proper way to solve the problem. Either the 'torunblocked' permission should be modified to exempt users from $wgTorAutoConfirmAge and $wgTorAutoConfirmCount limits or a new userright should be devised to do the same. Ruslik (talk) 04:14, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Support Support I think this idea makes sense because IMO the primary reason we have "Confirmed/Autoconfirmed" is to have a group of more trustworthy users that are not spammers/vandals, and users with global IPBE are at least as trusted as "Confirmed" users to not edit disruptively. Tony Tan 98 (talk) 16:46, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
So according to thisthis, if we decide to give confirmed to GIPBE, we would assign something like the following to the 'global-ipblock-exempt' global user group:
  • Edit pages protected as "Allow only autoconfirmed users" (editsemiprotected)
*Have one's own revisions automatically marked as "accepted" (autoreview)
*Mark others' edits as patrolled (patrol)
  • Move pages (move)
  • Move pages under pending changes (movestable)
  • Not be affected by IP-based rate limits (autoconfirmed)
*Overwrite existing files (reupload)
  • Perform CAPTCHA-triggering actions without having to go through the CAPTCHA (skipcaptcha)
  • Propose new OAuth consumers (mwoauthproposeconsumer)
  • Reset failed or transcoded videos so they are inserted into the job queue again (transcode-reset)
  • Save books as community page in the book namespace (collectionsaveascommunitypage)
  • Save books as user page (collectionsaveasuserpage)
  • Update OAuth consumers you control (mwoauthupdateownconsumer)
*Upload files (upload) (Note: seems like many wikis have this one)
  • View detailed abuse log entries (abusefilter-log-detail)

(Modified at 19:26, 8 December 2014 (UTC) by Tony Tan 98 (talk) to strike through enwiki-specific rights according to Special:ListGroupRights on meta and bold ones I personally think may be important.)
Enwiki has an unusual set of rights associated with autoconfirmed. We'd probably look at adding editsemiprotected and skipcaptcha. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:00, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
Hmm, it seems like so. I have added strike-throughs to enwiki-specific ones using the list on meta. But should upload, which is not on meta, be included too? Thanks, Tony Tan 98 (talk) 19:26, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

remove system administrator permission from SPage (WMF)[edit]

I was made a global system administrator back when I was working on m:Research:Account creation UX. I don't need the power any more and I'd rather not have it – this rough magic I here abjure, I'll break my staff, Bury it certain fathoms in the earth. I could just remove the right myself, but I assume you want the paper trail. BTW at the time I was "S Page (WMF)" with a space between 'S' and 'P'; you have to look in Special:Log?type=gblrights for that old user name to see my rights grant requested by Philippe (maybe a bug with global rename, phab:T85023). Thanks! --SPage (WMF) (talk) 21:20, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Done. —DerHexer (Talk) 21:27, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
