Policies and guidelines Global sysop policy & information
This page outlines the standards and guidelines related to the use of the user rights assigned to the global sysop user group.

Global sysops are highly trusted users with a strong track record of cross-wiki contributions that have sysop privileges on many small wikis, for the purposes of antivandalism and routine maintenance. They are not users with sysop tools on all wikis and they have no extra editorial control over content or the local community.

Scope

By default, global sysop are enabled for every project that meets one of the following criteria:

  • fewer than ten administrators exist; or
  • fewer than three administrators have made a logged action within the past two months.

Projects may opt-in or opt-out at their own discretion if they obtain local consensus. Simply inform any steward of the community's decision. A wiki set, located here, is a list of wikis where Global Sysops do not have access.

Appointment

Requests should be placed on Steward requests/Global permissions. The request will be approved by a steward if there is a consensus for the user to become a global sysop after a period of discussion, normally over a timeframe of two weeks. The discussion is not a vote; comments must present specific points in favor of or against the user's approval.

Removal

Continued global sysop access depends on both activity and the continued support of the Wikimedia community.

Inactivity
Global sysops will automatically lose their access if have not performed any log actions outside of wikis on which they have local rights in six months.
Vote of confidence
Any steward may remove a global sysop's rights at any time if they feel the tools have been misused, or if a request for comment has shown that a significant minority does not trust the global sysop. If this occurs and the global sysop wants the tools back, a vote of confidence shall occur, where the global sysop must retain the consensus of the community in order to return their access.

Permissions

This is the list of permissions, with explanations, which global sysops have. The permissions are nearly identical to those of regular administrators; however, these permissions apply to any Wikimedia Foundation project that has not opted out of the global sysops' access list.

Communication

Global sysops must have user pages on every wiki they use their global sysop access on, which provides contact information or links to their primary user page (creation bot available).

If a user cannot resolve a dispute by talking to the global sysop, they can place a complaint on Talk:Global sysops, or contact any steward.
