Requests and proposals Steward requests (Global permissions) latest archive
This page hosts requests for global permissions. To make a request, read the relevant policy (global rollback, global sysop, global rename, …) and make a request below. Explain why membership is needed for that group, and detail prior experience or qualifications.

This is not a vote and any active Wikimedia editor may participate in the discussion.

Successful global rollback requests require no fewer than 5 days of discussion, while successful global renamer and global sysop discussions require no fewer than 2 weeks. For requests that are unlikely to pass under any circumstances, they may be closed by a steward without further discussion (after a reasonable amount of input).

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]] ===

 |domain    = global <!-- don't change this line -->
 |user name = Username
}}
::''Not ending before {{subst:#time:j F Y H:i|+5 days}} UTC''

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.

Global IP block exempt for Gogolplex[edit]

Hello, I am from Turkey and Wikipedia has been banned since 2017. I need to use a VPN service in order to access Wikipedia, which is why I am constantly getting the message while editing and translating articles that my IP has been banned. I'm most active on Turkish Wikipedia, but also contribute to English Wikipedia on topics about Cyprus and Turkey sometimes. I request a global IP-block. thanks, --Gogolplex (talk) 10:59, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

If you edit English Wikipedia, you will need local IP global block exemption here. Ruslik (talk) 07:28, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Trailblazer101[edit]

I was going to request a page protection for a page on Wikipedia, but, when I submitted the form, I got the IP block message. I'd like to say that I am only using a VPN for the means of bypassing internet restrictions forced upon me by my parents due to our internet provider allowing so, and I would like to have this block undone and a global sysop done for me so I can proporly go about things such as page protection requests properly, as I have no malicious intent to use my VPN for harmful things on Wikipedia or any other sites. Trailblazer101 (talk) 23:07, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Trailblazer101, I'm assuming you mean you want IP block exemption? Vermont (talk) 23:40, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
Yes, that's what I'd like. Trailblazer101 (talk) 23:47, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
Great! :) I've moved this request to the correct location. Vermont (talk) 23:48, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Jagulin[edit]

Occationally blocked when travelling etc. I'd like to ask for exemption from the global IP block. I'd also like to remind about the [[Global_blocks#Guidelines|]] saying Global blocks should, (..) be placed with the anonymous only flag on. I'm asuming it means that registered users should not be affected. For a global IP block I see no reason to block authenticated users, especially users with a good track record (autoconfirmed on some site). Your IP address is in a range which has been blocked on all wikis. The block was made by Jon Kolbert (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is Open Proxy: Colocation webhost - blocked range is 37.120.129.0/24.

Thanks! --Jagulin (talk) 03:04, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Blueberry72[edit]

Hello, a few days ago I notice that using a VPN service I cannot edit on Wikipedia, because I find myself with a blocked IP. It is not essential for me to use a VPN, but it is a protection for my computer and I'd rather not to disable it when I write on Wikipedia. I'm most active on Italian Wikipedia (as autopatrolled user), but I also contribute to English Wikipedia (as extended confirmed user). I request a global IP-block, thanks.
