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 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)

If there is sufficient concern about issuing the rights, then nominations will run for the full two week period.

Global rename for Dan Koehl[edit]

The following request is closed.
Not ending before 16 December 2014 12:38 UTC

I had in August 2014 on my Wikispecies user page a message from Keegan with a suggestion to apply for the global renamer right on Meta, which I hereby do. I am a user on Wikipedia since 2002, and I am presently the only active local bureaucrat on Wikispecies. I have only minor experience related to renaming, but I have read and understood the Global rename policy and other relevant policies. Regards, Dan Koehl (talk) 12:38, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Support Support Not a big fan of Wikispecies sysops but I have no problem with this user. Eurodyne (talk) 15:24, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Neutral Neutral This is not just minor experience, it's simply no experience - even though you were a bureaucrat for six months until the rename extension was shut off. And species doesn't have many rename requests either, judged by the log and the request page. Only your language skills might be useful (we have two Swedish global renamers - Tegel and Ternarius), but not sure if that's enough to promote you as global renamer. I suggest to extend this request to two weeks. Trijnsteltalk 16:22, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. I tend to agree with Trijnstel on no rename experience, but I'm also open to give this user a shot if he wants to help with this, also per language skills. -- M\A 19:08, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Oppose Oppose We have now 66 global renamers, as such I see no need to grant this right to users that do not have the necessary experience, despite having been bureaucrats prior to the introduction of global rename. Snowolf How can I help? 16:16, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

I certainly apologize if I have done something wrong, or broke any rules. I followed a suggested invitation on my talk page, and with only good intentions, to assist with the project. If I did anything wrong with this, and broke any rules, please inform me about my errors, and I will withdraw my application, because I dont want to have on my personal record, that i did anything against the wish of the community, or the rules. If this is so, my only defence is, that I honestly thought, that I did something good for the project, and I do take responsibility for my actions, but as I wrote above, I acted on a written suggestion, why I did it in good faith. Dan Koehl (talk) 00:15, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

It shouldn't be considered to be a negative mark on your record; the concerns relate to not having enough experience, and are not related to you as an editor. --Rschen7754 09:17, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose. I can't support this application at this occasion when there is no experience in renaming. Another thing, that's not related to this but it gives a strange feeling, is the failed application for local admin on sv.wiki the day before this application. Might just be a case of bad timing. -- Tegel (Talk) 23:32, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
 Not done, per the lack of consensus. As per Rschen, most of the comments here refer to your lack of experience with the renameuser tools, before they were shut down. This is definitely not an overall negative mark, but merely the opinion that your experience in the renaming of accounts is limited, and that there are already sufficient renamers, there's nothing wrong with that. Thank you in any case for volunteering. Savhñ 14:37, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Global rename for Edmenb[edit]

Not ending before 19 December 2014 13:54 UTC

Hi, I'm a wikipedian since march 2007, and I've been an admin and bureaucrat on the Spanish Wikipedia since September of that year. I'm also an OTRS volunteer, and since 2012, I have been one of es.wiki's CheckUsers. I have the impression that there currently are rather few Spanish users with the possibility to rename globally, with a significant amount of request on our local request page.

Having performed 13 renames as a local bureaucrat, and I have been helping the understaffed remaining renamers on our local request. I would like to be able to help and do the renamings myself again. Thank you, Edmenb ( Mensajes ) Wikipedia en Español 13:54, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

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)

Global editinterface for Technical 13[edit]

  • I'd like to request this permission to be able to work on updating uses of addOnloadHook(), addPortletLink(), and wgVariables that aren't using mw.config.get() as they should be. I made a request on mw:MediaWiki talk:Gadget-ajaxrecentchanges.js for an update to some of these components and went to the #wikimedia-dev channel to request someone that had the ability to make the changes for me. The response I got was that I should either request adminship if it was just mw: that I was interested in going through and bringing the scripts up to code or I should come here if there were other projects that I wanted to go through as well. Since I'd like to working on fixing these issues on MW, commons, meta, and enwp, I figured the best way for me to go is to come here and request this user group. I will happily sandbox all changes that I intend to make to these script and test them in all skins on all browsers they are expected to work in that I have access to, confirming the the fixes don't actually break anything. Thank you for your consideration. {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 04:16, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
See the previous request as well. I would be uncomfortable granting this right while the user does not have access to these areas on enwiki specifically because of concerns with pushing his own perspective, especially since he suggests he wishes to use the rights on enwiki.

  • Ajraddatz, I now again have access to those areas on enwiki again as my TE has been restored. The removal of my participation in the group was suppose to be short term as they indicated it shouldn't last more than 24 hours or it should be restored "soon". There were many reluctant to support it at all and many that thought they should be reinstated immediately and that Martin was out of line without a discussion to remove them in the first place. However, I have agreed with the administrator that has restored my ability to continue my template work that I would withdraw this request for now, and I intend to be back in about a month to re-open this request. To me it simply means that all these Gadgets and UserScripts will need to wait another month for my attention, but I suppose it won't blow anything up. I will say that getting rid of these methods is expected to be part of WMF1.26 or WMF1.27 last I knew, so those scripts may entirely cease to function at that point. {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 14:54, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Honestly, if that is the specific scope of your request and the enwiki dramas have cleared up then I would be happy to support the request for temporary access. But if you'd like to withdraw and wait again (that seeming to be rather useless bureaucracy to me), then that's up to you. All the best, Ajraddatz (talk) 22:24, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Ajraddatz, that is indeed the specific scope. I agree that it is bueraucrap, but it is what I agreed to and I'm a man of integrity and honor, so I will uphold that. I'll be back in a month, and hope to have less resistance at that time. Thank you. :) {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 05:57, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
