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]] ===
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!-- don't change this line -->
 |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 (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 Stanglavine[edit]

Not ending before 17 February 2019 16:44 UTC
Hello, I've been working more and more with cross-wiki vandalism, mostly via IRC, but it's been a lot of work and time-consuming to use the undo function, so I'd like to be able to use the rollback. I really wanted to be able to use SWViewer as well. Rafael (stanglavine) msg 16:44, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

  • GA candidate.svg Weak support Cross-wiki contributions are organized in the same languages and many are not small wiki (distribution). Finally, the number of wiki makes the difference (even with only one edition on the project). Good continuation. --Eihel (talk) 21:38, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Support Support ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:53, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Neutral Neutral Nothing against you personally, but I note that the matrix (here defined as the number of edits on non-home wikis) is lower than what I normally see for such a role. I should also note that you have requested a similar permission on en.wikibooks. Leaderboard (talk) 15:39, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
@Leaderboard: Yes, because the en.wikibooks is one of the specific wikis where most encounter vandalism. But if the request here is approved, the request there no longer makes sense. Rafael (stanglavine) msg 17:01, 14 February 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Patriccck[edit]

Global rename for JogiAsad[edit]

Not ending before 24 February 2019 00:40 UTC

Hi, I am sysop at Sdwiki and actively working on templates, modules, recent changes, abuse filters and new users. Currently there are some username policies on sdwiki and we don't have enabled Sindhi keyboard for sdwiki, so new users create usernames which are not in local username policy, I request Global rename permission, so I may manage this issue and help existing & new users for user renaming as per sdwiki username policy. thanks JogiAsad (talk) 00:40, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

  • Support Support There is a clear need for this permission from the user. There are no objections. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 00:52, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
    • Neutral Neutral Per Concerns in English Wikipedia. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 18:16, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Neutral Neutral Mixed impression, Might be a good candidate, but looking at a recent block on English wiki I am hesitant to support. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:14, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per recent block on en.wiki. As anyone who follows the renamer list knows, our big current issue is renamers unfamiliar with local projects renaming users from those projects without taking into account local policy or norms. Someone who has a block for violating a TBAN on en by definition has a record of not following local policy of a major wiki that is not their home wiki. I cannot support at this time. TonyBallioni (talk) 04:21, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per TonyBallioni. Also, a "clear need" is always hard to prove when you represent a small wiki and intend to use a global permission for that. --Rschen7754 05:59, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Wait a moment, nowhere in their nomination statement they said they are doing global queues and we don't know the size of backlog on their homewiki. Small wikis may have large backlogs, I know CSD is one but UC? Can't we wait for them to answer these before we oppose? Thanks much!--Cohaf (talk) 06:33, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
    • We have to assume that they can be trusted with global queues because we can't restrict someone from not doing them. It would be like restricting an admin from using the block tool. I also don't think a wiki that gets less than 20 edits a day has a huge username change backlog. --Rschen7754 08:21, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
      • Point taken but I still hope they will answer as they seems to say there's lots of inappropriate username accounts that needs renaming and that is sort of demonstrated need. I hope to understand slightly more about that.--Cohaf (talk) 08:53, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose No demonstrated need. Nihlus 20:11, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Neutral Neutral I don't care much of the fact that you represent a small wiki, but you shouldn't have violated the en.wiki topic ban; this shows a lack of policy understanding which is unfortunately required in a role like this. Leaderboard (talk) 14:30, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Support Support --Novak Watchmen (talk) 17:19, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Neutral Neutral I may not have the time to comeback to wait for an answer. I think since there are topic ban of admins for doing something, there can also be probably restrictions of GR for not doing some renames. What I am concerned is that there is little demonstrated need and not very convinced that my questions are not answered in time. So neutral. I probably won't have the chance to further comment on this. --Cohaf (talk) 17:53, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per TonyBallioni, and from what I've seen of them in relation to their topic ban on enwiki, I'm not sure if they'd be able to properly respond to any queries/questions regarding renames that they do. Galobtter (talk) 11:01, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose. As much as I'd like an sdwiki renamer unfortunately Tony makes a good point about your behaviour and don't feel you can serve as a renamer particularly well. Hiàn (talk) 20:50, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

Global rename for Zoranzoki21[edit]

Hi, I am sysop on Serbian projects (except Serbian Wikipedia but I will be there too soon). I actively working on technical matters there. I contributing on Phabricator and Gerrit too. I read Global_rename_policy and I confirm this policy so I give this pledge to respect of rules related to global renaming of users.. We no have renamers and stewards which understand Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian and I think that I would do my job responsibly. Zoranzoki21 (talk) 17:34, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

@Zoranzoki21: Why do you need the right? Leaderboard (talk) 17:41, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
@Leaderboard: Thanks for question. I need this right for renaming users from Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian requests per policy from there. Too we no have users which know these languages which have this permission already. Zoranzoki21 (talk) 17:51, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose At the same time and previous to this request, the user has also requested the patroller and translation administrator permissions in Meta. IMHO, gives me the feeling of a possible hat collecting. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 18:02, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
@AlvaroMolina: I no works and I no contribute for hats. What is difference between my request and request for this right of previous user which you supported? Zoranzoki21 (talk) 18:14, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
@Zoranzoki21: I did not know the situation of that user in English Wikipedia, I only had in mind the fact that in the language of his home wiki there were no other experienced global renamers, and that perhaps a demonstrated and well-founded need could be evidenced in his request, that's why I subsequently changed my position; in this case, however, and despite the fact that I am open to supporting all the applicants of the global renamer permission of uncommon languages who wish to help and obviously have proven local experience/trust, it does not seem normal for a user to apply at the same time two other permissions with quite particular purposes, so I would not feel comfortable giving my support to an application under this concern. Regards. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 18:42, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
@AlvaroMolina: In a way, I understand you. But I think you misunderstood me and have a wrong opinion of me. Zoranzoki21 (talk) 18:47, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Per AlvaroMolina Kb03 (talk) 18:03, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
  • In a very rare instance for me, I am concerned about rapid accumulation and requesting of permissions here. The user is a sysop on all of the small sr projects since 2018, but is not particularly active on any of them. This is the third permission that the user has requested on Meta-Wiki today. Given that the sysop tools have not been widely used, I don't think you have enough experience for me to judge whether you would be able to correctly interpret and implement renaming policies and use the access appropriately. – Ajraddatz (talk) 18:04, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per Ajraddatz. Vermont (talk) 18:05, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose, per above, applying for three permissions at the same time seems like a hat collecting. --Stïnger (会話) 19:00, 15 February 2019 (UTC).
  • Oppose Oppose per above --Rschen7754 19:29, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per above. Hiàn (talk) 20:50, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

I did not have bad intentions. But I withdraw the request. Zoranzoki21 (talk) 22:52, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
