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 Grind24[edit]

I'd like to apply for rollback. I've been an active member of the SWMT for some months;doing many reverts and taggings. The rollback tool is more efficient than manually undoing and twinkle so this would make it much easier to revert nonsense/spam edits. Plus there are still some wikis where I have to install my global.js so TW is not there when needed most and I think that rollback globally would help me do the job faster.Grind24 (talk) 21:16, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

  • "Plus there are still some wikis where I have to install my global.js" - isn't there GlobalCssJs? --Rschen7754 21:23, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
I made reference to TW includes in my global.js that doesn't answer of times when I have the more necessity--Grind24 (talk) 22:17, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Support Support, good crosswiki activity, good crosswiki editcount, and Grind24 focus on helping GS with "Gs eyes" page are greatly appreciated.--AldNonymousBicara? 21:29, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose For now, because by checking crosswiki edits I don't see that Grind is active on reverting vandalism or spam. I see however a lot of userpage creations which could be avoided by our new Global Userpage extension and some speedy deletion tagging, for which rollback is not required. And while I appreciate your work, this does not give me the impression that GR is needed by now :-( — MarcoAurelio 21:57, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Per Marco and the hat collecting clause. See this. Eurodyne (talk) 07:09, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
Eurodyne if you charge me of hats collecting, what we will say of this,this, email crat to become admin, another diff, on pl.wiki,mediawiki,en.wikibook,es.wikipedia;definitely it is the true hat collection , I don't know why you pursue me every time, then me you advice to assume the good faith.--Grind24 (talk) 11:11, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
@Grind24: This request is concerning you and does not have anything to do with me. I may have been a hypocrite, but that's beyond the point in this request specifically. Eurodyne (talk) 20:05, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
It might help if you speak in French, which I think would help me understand you better (I can translate). Also, Eurodyne's hat collection, while a problem I do have, does not discredit yours as a concern; I also have this same concern with you.--Jasper Deng (talk) 19:32, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per Marco and Eurodyne. --Rschen7754 08:25, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
    • Also disturbed by the combative behavior towards those opposing this request. --Rschen7754 19:50, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose En: This hat collection has been concerning. In addition to the vecwiki case, I've seen requests for rights on MediaWiki.org, on testwiki, and now here. I would like you to wait at least a year before making another request for user rights. Fr: Ce remassage des droits d'utilisateurs m'a inquiété. En plus du cas vecwiki, j'ai vu des demandes pour des droits sur MediaWiki.org, sur testwiki, et maintenant, ici. Je voudrais que tu attende au mois une anée avant de faire une nouvelle demande pour des droits d'utilisateurs.--Jasper Deng (talk) 08:38, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per Marco and, I could not see heavy use of reverts globally.--Infinite0694 (Talk) 16:31, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose - Unfortunately, you have had a history of hat collecting. I do indeed agree with Jasper on this one. Sorry. Caliburn (talk) 08:07, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
comment: As far as I can see, there's hardly any reverts outside of Meta and English Wikipedia. Most of your activity has been content translations and welcoming users. Of course, there's that "issue" the others above have mentioned. I recommend using Twinkle across more wikis other than just the English ones. Tropicalkitty (talk) 09:18, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Request withdrawn Decidedly all seems to indicate that it won't happen well,in addition to this interpretation of hats collection, so I withdraw --Grind24 (talk) 15:48, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Global rollback for Devwebtel[edit]

Global rollbacker rights will help me reverting vandalisms (I'm member of SWMT and I'm voiced on #cvn-sw IRC channel). If you grant me this rights, you can delete my CAPTCHA exemptions rights (globall rollbacker group has skipcaptcha right). --Devwebtel (query) 12:36, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Neutral Neutral Not really sure after seeing this.--AldNonymousBicara? 13:03, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
    • What you mean? Too few edits? --Devwebtel (query) 14:07, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
    • Too few edits outside of the wiki that your account was created, not enough cross-wiki activity. User group situation is not as bad (yet) as some of our recent global rollback requests we've seen, but it's starting to become a bit concerning. The global CAPTCHA exemptions is really not needed in my opinion as they become waived pretty much when you reach autoconfirmed status on every wiki you regularly visit (although it's a bit higher on the eswiki with 50 edits, but very low on others). Tropicalkitty (talk) 17:25, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
      • Rollback right will help me a lot (quicker rollbacking), but I can wait if you want. --Devwebtel (query) 19:11, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
        • You have too few edits overall (only around 2500) also; I would suggest reapplying later. --Rschen7754 19:15, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
          • Ok. How many global edits should I have? About 5000? --Devwebtel (query) 20:23, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
            • A question like this misses the point: what I would expect to see is showing enough experience to revert vandalism across many wikis, and a proper understanding of the mission of Wikimedia. --Rschen7754 23:11, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
    • Generally I understand. When I am not sure that some edit is vandalism, I not revert it. --Devwebtel (query) 04:46, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Global rename for Aldnonymous[edit]

Not ending before 29 May 2015 16:14 UTC

Hello everyone, today I ask for Global Rename permission to be added on my account, reason for this request is because the backlog on rename request already long (w:id:Wikipedia:Pengubahan nama pengguna/Permohonan), and there's only 2 Renamer available (bennylin as stewards, and Mimihitam as G Renamer) but Bennylin have no interest handling this request and Mimihitam are on vacation IRL, another reason that pushing me to ask for this permission is that Bonaditya request for Global Renamer got rejected because he have no/little experience with Xwiki, Bonaditya is one of the active admins currently id.wp have on it's undermanned status (We currently only have 26 admins to handle all this stuff), so in actuality currently there's no Indonesian Global renamer that needed to handle id, ace, bjn, map-bms, bug, jv, min, su and other local language that have wiki Inside Indonesia (Indonesian sister projects). I made this request so I could handle the request and solve the backlog. For my suitability for this rights, I think I have crosswiki experience, and language skill to handle the request and I am familiar with Xwiki works. Thank you for reading this request.--AldNonymousBicara? 16:14, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

  • sigh I guess I don't really like that this request comes just a few weeks after d:Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Administrator/Aldnonymous, where concerns were raised regarding the candidate's communication; running for something else so soon after that just doesn't sit well with me. I also don't think the rationale is that valid either: the local request pages are a convenience, not a necessity, and if the staffing doesn't exist to run the page, then it should be redirected to Meta, or to that new tool in the Special: namespace that was recently developed. So I would have to oppose this. --Rschen7754 01:25, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
    @Rschen7754: Easy for you to say that, I already ask local crat to ask for this rights, only mimihitam asking it, meanwhile others give disinterest response, I ask other local sysops, only Bonaditya ask it, but even so, he got rejected because no xwiki experience, we also already place the pointer page to meta, but they don't want to place it here because meta still using mainly english on its request page, then we try communicating with them offline from facebook and explain the process, even so they got dejected and give up on the renaming process, I am actually depressed with this situation, and the mistake few days ago on Chinese G Renamer renaming Indonesian user wrongly because it was a spam account and religious attack account didn't make it all better, hence this request. I probably only going to use this G Renamer temporarily until there are other Indonesian G Renamer.--AldNonymousBicara? 04:22, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
    Then we should take the issue up with those global renamers. Meanwhile, Special:GlobalRenameQueue and associated pages are supposed to be translated as part of the interface. --Rschen7754 15:44, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
    @Rschen7754: Your answer made me realize you are not really familiar with renaming please do see w:id:Istimewa:GlobalRenameRequest It's already in Indonesian (This link already inserted on local rename pages but they don't use it -senior editor like Anbu(see w:id:Pembicaraan_Pengguna:Aldnonymous/Arsip_002#Bls:_Akun_global) and Hiro Hamada(see w:id:Wikipedia:Pengubahan_nama_pengguna/Permohonan#Andika_Rahman_Hakim_.E2.86.92_HiroHamada1)-, after the wrong rename by some Chinese Global Renamer, indicating that experienced user don't trust this special pages request despite the endorse to using it onwiki and offwiki), some people already made the request, some don't made the request after they saw the wrong rename happened to some of the editor, it's showing that language comprehensive are required when handling request from specified language such as Asian (non germanic) language.--AldNonymousBicara? 16:38, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
    I don't think that is a problem of the page itself, which is IMHO very intuitive. You just have to enter the desired username and a reasoning and hit "Submit". If people is being wrongfully renamed I think that they a) need to read the pages before submitting requests or; b) find that user making bad global renames and educate him on doing right his job or remove their rights as Rschen7754 said. I'd say that that special page would be the only way to request renamings in the future when the SUL-F process is fully done... and many major projects are replacing local request pages in favor of this centralized system (eswiki for example). Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio 22:34, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
    True, but it's hard to change habit, local procedure that already prevail for a long time and local sysops/'crat that are used to old rename process is hard to adapt with new rename process, the current gap of number id-N renamer didn't make it better as no id-N renamer available to "actually" explain stuff to them, it's within my interest that I want to change their rename process to match the current meta rename and use that special pages hence I keep asking local sysops or 'crat to ask for G rename as I already explained by me on previous comment, but as expected, Bonaditya got rejected because low Xwiki activity, hence I made this rename request because I already give up on searching local admins that are willing to ask for Grenamer, the fact that the process for this rights are made hard for them because they have low Xwiki activity makes them timid and reject the idea of making them Grenamer.--AldNonymousBicara? 22:46, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Global rename for Trần Nguyễn Minh Huy[edit]

Hi all, I'm an active member on Vietnamese Wikipedia from 2009 and have a lot of cross-wiki experience. I service as a sysop on vi.wp, wi.wikt, outreach and some other Wikimania wiki, also an OTRS member and has an account on Foundation wiki. My homewiki has a ton of outstanding request for rename (vi:Wikipedia:Đổi tên người dùng), because we only have two global renamer and both are very busy with real-life now. I would like to help Vietnamese speaking users here and at local request pages, also for some languages which is my language (ja-4 and en-2). I'm not a bureaucrat anywhere but I believe I'm sufficiently familiar with the global policies, I have read all relevant rename policies. Regards and thank you for your consideration. --minhhuy (talk) 10:02, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
