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.</translate>
<translate> Instructions for making a request</translate>

<translate> 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.</translate>
=== Global rollback for [[User:Foo|Foo]] ===
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!-- don't change this line -->
 |domain    = global <!-- don't change this line -->
 |user name = <translate><!--T:4-->
Username</translate>
}}
::''Not ending before {{subst:#time:j F Y H:i|+5 days}} UTC''

<translate> The request will be approved if consensus to do so exists after a period of consideration of no less than 5 days (other than requests that are unlikely to pass under any circumstances, no other 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.</translate>

Global rollback for Hazard-SJ

I have been a Wikimedian (more specifically, a Wikipedian) who helps where he can. I have rollback on the English and Simple English Wikipedias, and reviewer on the English Wikipedia, where I am also approved for ACC. I have also read through Global rollback, and reviewing my edits, you would notice that I have a lot of anti-vandalism experience (that is my main task on the English Wikipedia). I would like to be more equipped to help in a broader range cross-wiki, and so, ask for the global rollback right and your encouragement. --Hazard-SJ Talk 02:22, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Oppose Oppose - recommend withdrawal, GR is only for users who are demonstrably active cross-wiki and show experience removing vandalism on other language Wikipedias, not just simplewp and enwp. Consider looking at SWMT. Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм | Champagne? 06:50, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose -- all I see is en., test., and the lab. We can't let you loose on other wikis. Seb az86556 06:53, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Sorry, I don't see enough cross-wiki countervandalism work. GR is meant for people who are already active in crosswiki tasks like the SWMT. Jafeluv 07:16, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Per above. Concerns with limited cross-wiki experience. -FASTILY (TALK) 18:33, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Super duper duper duper oppose. Why don't you spend some time here? Frozen Windwant to be chilly? 18:46, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
I am withdrawing from this request. Can a steward please change the status? I'll work on the cross-wiki AV, and probably be back in a few weeks or so. Is there any other way to see #cvn-swconnect than on IRC? I'd prefer something else, but if that is all, then that it is. Hazard-SJ Talk 03:27, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
  • X mark.svg Withdrawn Kylu 03:28, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
    Note for Hazard-SJ: #cvn-sw is, by definition, an IRC channel, but little conversation goes on there... it's mostly used as a high-speed multiproject RSS feed where edits on several hundred projects are reported to the same location. If you dislike the cliqueishness that accompanies various IRC functions at times and you're technically savvy, you can use the Wikimedia IRC servers instead, where users are simply not allowed to converse at all: The only text feed is from the RC system itself. If you're simply unable to use IRC at all, you can still contribute to SWMT, but will likely need to do so by perusing the various bot-reported vandalism reports on Meta or by manually visiting the various RC pages on the different projects. The last idea would be to visit each project you want to help individually and subscribe to their RC pages as RSS feeds in your browser or RSS client. It really depends on your reasoning as to why you don't want to/can't use IRC. Kylu 17:12, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Requests for global sysop permissions

<translate> The request will be approved if consensus to do so exists after a period of consideration of no less than two weeks (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. Please note: Since 2019 all global sysops are required to have two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled.</translate>


Global sysop for Junaidpv

Hi,

A wikimedian home to Malayalam Wikipedia. As Shiju Alex explained above we both are involved in helping activities Indian language Wikimedia projects, especially to develop writing tools for them. To maximize our efforts we need sysop rights there. So I request you to grant gloabl sysop flang for me. Currently I hold sysop flags at ml.wikipedia and ml.wikibooks. Thank you. Junaidpv 15:24, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Oppose. You have limited cross-wiki experience and no experience working in administrative areas of smaller wikis. The global sysop flag gives you access to the whole array of sysop tools, not just the ability to edit css and mediawiki namespace pages. Like the above request, if all you're interested in is editing restricted pages cross-wiki, I recommend enlisting the help of local sysops at the smaller wikis in question, or enlisting the help of a willing steward. -FASTILY (TALK) 03:07, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose Get local adminship, you don't need a global flag for what you want to do; more importantly, you will be explicitly forbidden to use the global flag for content edits and edits that are not anti-vandalism related. Writing and implementing tools is not a decision related to anti-vandalism and uncontroversial maintenance. Seb az86556 04:41, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose, per Fastily and Sebaz86556 -- Quentinv57 16:32, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Limited cross-wiki experience. Tiptoety talk 20:40, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done--Shizhao 01:03, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Strongly support There are some 100 Wikis that need tender loving care in order to become more usable. Many of these wikis are moribunt. Given the excellent credentials of the persons involved, I urge you strongly to reconsider. Thanks, GerardM 16:36, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Opt-out for Amharic Wikipedia

Status:    Done

Once again, I am imploring you to allow Amharic Wikipedia to opt-out of the global sysop program. It was never necessary for our wikipedia to begin with, and the idea of Amharic-illiterate sysops wading in and performing sysop actions just because they can, has proved highly unpopular, yet this has happened again only today. The last time I asked this in August, I was told I must ask the Amharic community first. The result was that there is universal and strong agreement among Amharic-speaking users that Amharic literacy is a requirement to be made a sysop, or for any sysop actions to be performed on Amharic wikipedia. Please remove Amharic Wikipedia from the unwanted global sysop program that has been imposed on us. Thank you. Codex Sinaiticus 16:48, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

Has something changed since the previous request? Your community can of course decide whether it want global sysops enabled or not, but project-wide decisions like this should probably include more than just two or three people. Jafeluv 17:09, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
It seems certain people are actively trying to make this as unnecessarily difficult and as big a hassle as possible. Please be assured, NOBODY on the Amharic wikipedia wants non-Amharic sysops from Germany or wherever waltzing in and trying to change things they don't understand. What will it possibly take to demonstrate that to you? It should be a simple matter to fix, yet the amount of obstacles being thrown up suggests there seems to be some wider agenda at play here. The purpose and scope of global sysops was never intended with this kind of thing in mind. The local sysops do know Amharic and can take care of everything there quite well, thank you. Codex Sinaiticus 17:29, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
Looking at the previous request, the concern was that three people's opinions may not be enough to demonstrate project-wide consensus. I'm not aware of any strict requirements on how many votes would be sufficient (I think there's an ongoing RFC on the issue), but I'm sure it will be considered if you can gather some more opinions from active participants. It would also be good to have an English translation of the discussion (although you could set up a vote and just translate the "oppose"/"support" sections if you don't want to keep translating every participant's comments) since as you've noticed not many people here can read Amharic and Google Translate doesn't support the language yet. Jafeluv 18:01, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
May I remind you once again that I opposed Global sysops from the outset for precisely this very reason. However I was assured that this very kind of problem would never arise because the purpose of global sysops was ostensibly only to monitor small neglected wikis, not the active ones like Amharic wikipedia. I was also assured that should any problem ever arise, getting off of global sysops would be a simple matter. Both of these assurances are now revealed to have been mere cajolery. We have also long had a policy established by consensus that Amharic literacy is a prerequisite to be a sysop there. The sysop tools are not given to anyone who has not even bothered to learn how to read the language, for obvious reasons. Codex Sinaiticus 18:10, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done - few active users are active on that wiki so we can not expect high levels of community participation. I'm therefore per Codex Sinaiticus' request removing access to global sysops on amwiki. If somebody wants to reverse or discuss this action is free to do so. Regards, --dferg ☎ talk 18:49, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! And sorry if it seems like I had not assumed good faith, but as bureaucrat there I thought I should be entitled to a little good faith that nobody there actually wanted this, without being asked to present translations and rosters in triplicate beforehand! Much appreciated, Codex Sinaiticus 18:54, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
