If you are a bureaucrat (as of 31 August 2014) and have experience with renames, your request will be reviewed by the community for a minimum of 24 hours, and can then be expedited by a steward as per Global renamers policy if there is no concern to issue the rights. If there is sufficient concern about issuing the rights, then nominations will run for the full two week period.

  • That action was based on previous renaming operation. In japanese wikipedia, policy decide to make a new account for new target account name protection before that requesting.
For example, when currently user name is "Example" and new user name is "NewUsername".
  1. We usually first renaming "NewUsername" to "Rename20140903003908" ,
  2. Then "Example" to "NewUsername",
  3. Finally "Rename20140903003908" to "Example".
Stewards does not do these. And I needed that action to confirmation for already requested my renaming in other wikis. When I want to renaming, I'll requesting that to other global renamers or stewards.--Rxy (talk) 17:05, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Global rename for Mahitgar[edit]

Not ending before 15 September 2014 02:47 UTC

Hi, I am beurocrat from mr wikipedia. (This is log about change of name activity done by me on local mr wikipedia uptil now). We do have some local technical renaming concerns for Devnagari Script which I have discussed with User_talk:Keegan_(WMF) and I suppose I would need to support username change requirements and requests coming from Devnagri script using wiki's namely Marathi, Hindi etc wikis.

Mahitgar (He who knows ,wants to know and and loves to keep others informed) (talk) 02:47, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

  • I have two questions for you: 1) You mention helping on Marathi and Hindi wikis; do you plan on fulfilling other rename requests? 2) In a recent comment you have made on Meta, you wrote: "all mr-wiki project indiepandance be vehemently defended and not compromised at all costs and independance retained in favour of Marathi people only for ever." [1] Do you think that this will affect your candidacy and/or how you will use the right? --Rschen7754 03:17, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
Good questions
1.1) I said primarily to concentrate on Devnagri script language wikis and as such list goes beyond Marathi and Hindi to say bhojpuri nepali and more are there but bigger projects are no doubt Hindi and Marathi so I mentioned those names.
1.2) It not that we may not work for other requests at all but naturally including me most of beurocrats focus and concern is likely to remain to serve their own communities first, and secondlly including me for most of beurocrats from local language wikis we are busy in lot of other work in local wikis to do. We are here to take care of the load wherever and whenever possible and needed and will try to be assisting positively in the process whatever meta has adopted.
2.1) Including me most of local beurocrats will be representing and taking care of their own communities that does not mean we will be unfair to the others. As far as mr-community is concerned even for roman script usually a Marathi persons account naming would be unique and different and not much likely to go into conflict with another user name. And even if it goes in conflict some where we would be guiding marathi language users to use Devnagri script names rather than wasting their time over roman script user names. And if we are not much likely to go in conflict with roman script names issues then why rest of i.e. non-Devnagri script meta community need to worry about our actions.
2.2) As far as Devanagri script names are concened I have already mentioned that we will be consulting among ourselves and place mutually agreeable policy. I am sysop on one of Hindi projects, I was sysop beirfly for Sanskrit language project I know sysops well from nepali language projects and I do have a good enough understanding to find a common policy with them as far as Devanagri names are concerned.
2.3) As far as defending indipendance of project is concerned we do stand by that does not mean we are anarchyst in any way, If any such thought is in any body's mind they need to revisit their thoughts. As far we oursevels are concerned our thoughts and actions are transperant clear and well within spirit of wikimedia principles. From Marathi Wikipedias side I recently co-operated with Nemo, as Hindi wiktionary sysop I cooperated with you as per Hindi communities wishes. I am an editor on english wikipedia also when I will be representing english wikipedia I will be taking into account english wikipedia' community's views in account.
If this global renaming process at any point of time unduly interfers local aspects and remains unfair against wikimedia spirit certainly I would be the first person to point it out and defend local project independance very well. But according to me most probably in wiki projects user names are not that important also to waste time on unncessary conflicts.
Let it put me again as far as Devanagri script wikis I am capable to co-ordinate and resolve policy issues among ourselves. And we have no reasons to get in conflict waste our time with other language script wikis.
And still by opting Global renamer ship I have to surrender our project indipendance or any body feels I will aquire some other projects indipendance that moment I will not remain interested in this task. Am I clear enough ?
Thanks and regards
Mahitgar (He who knows ,wants to know and and loves to keep others informed) (talk) 06:34, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
@Keegan (WMF): is this the best of Meta you wanted experienced beurocrats from projects come and help for ? I did not understand how some ones pro project independance stance can be reason to question candidature in itself ? If some one puts his points others do not bother to exmine logic ? Even a single person has bothered to read technical problems I mentioned at User_talk:Keegan_(WMF) our local project is facing ? Is this the good faith Meta works with other project beurocrats ?
If global renamer issue is not properly addressed at Meta why WMF agrees and ind what hurry to make software changes unsuitable for local projects ?
Some one will come out with some excuses but simply this attitude does not help local communities and underlines importance of maximum local project independance.

Hello.I'm bureaucrat of Japanese Wikipedia since 27 August 2011. I had commented and adviced to local users as bureaucrat in local request page.(but the logs I used renamer right does not exist.) Since I am a native speaker of Japanese, I can rename easily not only alphabet name but also Japanese characters and Chinese characters name. Of course, I'll follow strictly Global rename policy.--W.CC (talk) 03:35, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Thank you all. I'm satisfied I should follow your advices. I extend the period of my candidacy by 2 weeks. I'd like to discuss more whether I qualified to be the global renamer or not. I have less experience than other many local bureaucrat, but I can assure you agein that I follow strictly Global rename policy and global community.--W.CC (talk) 15:33, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

    I'm pretty disgusted that now we have two stewards making POINTy edits here. These discussions occurred for literally months, and neither bothered to contribute in a meaningful way. Regardless, neither of these opposes are valid per the policy as they do not reflect upon the user, so they can safely be ignored. Ajraddatz (talk) 13:54, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    I raised my concerns about the time those elections will last weeks ago (see link above) and also said that on the steward mailinglist at some point. One day or three days doesn't make much difference. It is about a global right, not all are watching meta daily. I think it is unfair to the vast majority of the community to rush through global right requests within one day or three. There is no reason to rush this. There is no reason why those requests can't last for seven or maybe even 14 days. (Sorry for posting here, just don't have the time currently to read through half meta to find the right place to post. It is nothing personal against any candidate, just my very own opinion...) -Barras talk 22:08, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    So you haven't even noticed that the global renamer group is not a global one and that it is much less abusable than "renameuser" (you cannot break SUL) which all of the applying bureaucrats have already assigned to their account? Great! Vogone (talk) 22:13, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    And before this is misunderstood, I don't particularly care about how long these requests last. I'd be fine with Barras' proposal but find the way he tries to enforce it totally inappropriate. Vogone (talk) 22:22, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
I also don't particularly care how long the requests last for. My point is that the "formal" oppose will not achieve an extension beyond 3 days, which this particular application is already at. So this oppose achieved nothing, even if it is counted. --99of9 (talk) 23:48, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Global rename for Mskyrider[edit]

I've been a bureaucrat @ Turkish Wikipedia since 2007 and have a significant experience in renaming users. Other than my native Turkish, I speak English and French fluently and have basic understanding of Turkic languages. I would like to apply for global renamer rights in order to be able to process primarily requests coming from my home wiki. Thanks. --Mskyrider (talk) 05:17, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Fist, me too is "herself" Support Support and yes, I don't have a problem with a longer discussion time as long as everyone follows the same delay. And the other point is the loss of the local rename right. We have right know problems with the rename of users. Nearly 95% of our Users have a SUL-Account so we have to transfer them for rename. This is not so comfortable for our users. For the upcoming SUL-finalization we have to do both local and global renames. Regard--Itti (talk) 17:42, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I've been an active bureaucrat in Persian Wikipedia since September 12, 2010 (about four years now) and I renamed 179 users, about 36% of all renames and more than any other bureaucrat in that Wiki. My main concern for this request is non-Latin user names and abuses that It may cause because of similarities, I explained in more details in here but If I want to explain very fast. "وحید" and "وحيد" look exactly the same but they are different (just remove د character to see the differences) and I think a bureaucrat who knows these languages (Arabic and Persian scripts) is vital for global rename team.

You also hold another global right already, global rollback, granted to you in 2009. You might have forgotten about it, since you have only used it on six (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) occasions outside of your homewikis in the past two and a half years.

Global rename for Taketa[edit]

Not ending before 3 September 2014 06:16 UTC

Dear fellow Wikimedians,

with this request I would like to volunteer for the global rename permission. Since I am not a regular on meta let me give a short intro. I am a Dutch Wikipedian, bureaucrat since February 2010 with 109 renames/usurpations. I write articles, work on projects and add images. Other activities: Wikidata admin, OTRS member, Commons file renamer. Dutch Arbcom member in 2009/10 and 2012/13. Visited Wikimania in 2011/2012, instructed at introduction courses, coordinated introduction courses at Maastricht University Library, Eindhoven Wiknic 2014, and most recently a Dutch/German Museum cooperation.

I would like to focus on requests on the several Dutch language projects (nl), and the West-Frysian (fy) and Limburgian (li) Wikipedias. I can also help out in English speaking projects but prefer gaining some experience first. I have read the Global rename policy and the meta talkpages concerned with the userright. Let me know if there are any questions.

As you can see at the request page for renaming of an account on nlwiki, it take very long there to process such requests. Taketa says he will respond very fast when someone leaves a message for him (and that's true), but that isn't the right way. A crat (or in this case, a global renamer) should watch such pages and process a request as soon as possible, and not wait until someone wil notify a user (or global renamer) about a request. JurgenNL (talk) 16:26, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
    • I watch crat request pages. It is true that recently there was a crat backlog of 2-3 requests. With 6 people, 3 active, it happens. We all 3 have periods of being less active and when they combine, there is a backlog. As a global renamer I will be part of a large group, I do not take any renames away. I simply add renames. Nothing has been mentioned, about me being a global renamer, that would make it a negative thing. My edits are good quality, I am active, and I have the experience. I would like to give it a serious go. -- Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 17:18, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Global deletion for Pathoschild (temporary)[edit]

The global delete flag would only be used by Synchbot to delete users' *.js and *.css pages (by request) for the migration to the global CSS/JS extension. Synchbot was routinely used for similar deletions before I resigned my steward flag, so it can handle any case not supported by the existing migration script. (With global CSS/JS finally deployed, many users are left with hundreds of redundant JavaScript subpages crosswiki; this leads to strange quirks like scripts loading twice. I'll contact these users to offer to fix this with Synchbot.) —Pathoschild 03:37, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

    Pff, I forgot GS is not truly global. Let's give steward rights instead! :P --MF-W 21:27, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
    Unfortunately the GlobalCssJs migration script only handles one very specific case. It's essentially a nuclear option — it can delete every page matching its criteria, but it can't do anything more nuanced (skip some wikis, edit global.js out of pages full of other scripts, handle non-Meta global.js, etc). There several users already excluded. I think the two approaches would work in parallel: the GlobalCssJs migration script would handle the most common case, and synchbot would take care of all the cases the migration script doesn't handle. —Pathoschild 14:40, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
    Hm, and enhancing that script by adding synchbot features and letting you run it would be impossible? Vogone (talk) 17:01, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
    That would work, but it'd involve server script access and additional development time. That doesn't seem necessary when the existing Synchbot can do it just fine, which has the added benefit of reducing Legoktm's workload. —Pathoschild 19:05, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

    Less rights isn't true, we have exactly one here. And this user was entrusted by the global community to hold all rights on all wikis (former steward), but resigned these recently under uncontroversial circumstances. This is also why this request became a no-brainer for most, I believe, as Pathoschild merely requests to resume a task he previously did as a steward. Vogone (talk) 14:35, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
    I would also add that while the right is not restricted, the deletions will be of pages identified by the target user in their user space.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:05, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Support Support Temporary Steward? Alan (talk) 19:50, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
    No way. While Pathoschild is certainly still trustworthy enough for it, it would make much more sense to just create a new global group with a few rights. Those rights would be 'delete', maybe 'edit' etc. if still required for deletions, but he has 'editinterface' already anyway. It would be completely out-of-process to allow him to do basically anything on any wiki (including OS and CU). Creating a global group is just a few clicks for a steward anyway.

    Thanks. :) —Pathoschild 17:47, 01 September 2014 (UTC)
    @Ajraddatz: For reasons of i18n I'd suggest to name this global group "eliminator". "delete-global" is unlocalised and it probably isn't worth to add it to translatewiki as the group will presumably be deleted in a year again. Regards, Vogone (talk) 17:52, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    delete-global pretty accurately represents what the group does. I am not concerned about giving it any sort of name beyond that as the group will be removed after Pathos is done with it. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:02, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    Sorry, I don't quite understand what you mean. My suggestion was made ultimatively for i18n reasons, as translations for "eliminator" (which translates as "deleter") already exist and it is better to have translations than having none. If the group was designed for permanent use, one would of course add i18n for "global-deleter" (or like you named it "delete-global") but I hardly believe that's worth it. Regards, Vogone (talk) 18:58, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    I see any internationalization of this group name as a make-work project. I don't see any reason to change the group name away from an anglo-centric one in this case - eliminator means nothing to me, I can only imagine what it would look like from other language perspectives. Ajraddatz (talk) 02:08, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
    This is why I recommended a rename to "eliminator". To avoid the need of extra translations. "Eliminator" is the English language name used on quite a few Wikipedias instead of "deleter", so blame the developers who decided that for their choice. In the worst case you can go to translatewiki and/or change MediaWiki:Group-eliminator/en resp. MediaWiki:Group-eliminator-member/en so that you can add an English name for that group you understand, there. Vogone (talk) 11:19, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
