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 IP block exempt for User:ابوهايدي[edit]

Hello, please confirm that you are being caught in a global IP block. If it is a local one then we cannot exempt you from it - you'll need to contact local admins. If convenient, you can email the block message to stewards[at]wikimedia.org so we can confirm. Ajraddatz (talk) 07:09, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Global editinterface for Rzuwig[edit]

I'd like request for the global editinterface rights. I want to translate local sidebars into polish language. Some examples od MediaWiki edits which I was must ask someone to move to MW namespace: [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], and my own edits on Wikidata: [6] Also I am regular contributor of Polish Wikipedia and Wikidata, where I have sysop rights, and translator of Translatewiki. I have been never blocked on any project. Rzuwig 15:59, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

  • I don't see why the translation of sidebars (which probably have at maximum half a dozen entries different from the default) to Polish, or any language other than maybe English is a thing for which global editinterface should be given. --MF-W 16:04, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
  • I have to agree with MF-Warburg here and don't think anything has changed since your last attempt to obtain this user right. Especially in regard to Requests for comment/Global Interface editors group policy, assigning this right out-of-scope would be a bad idea. Vogone talk 17:49, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
