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.

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.

Requests for global sysop permissions[edit]

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 sysops policy.

Global rename for -jkb-[edit]

According to an enquiry on German Wikipedia here I request this right.

  • my present status and experiences: admin + crat on the oldwikisource since 2005, admin on cs.wikisource (crat after lounching this project 2006 up to 2009)
  • status in the past: admin cs.wiki 2004 to 2006, arbcom member de.wiki 2011/2012, admin de.wiki 2012 to 2015

Some experiences with renaming in the pre-SUL period. Language box (de/cs/en etc.) will come in these days. Thanks for attention, be free to question me. -jkb- 18:02, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

Global rename for DoRD[edit]

I am requesting Global rename permission mainly because I frequently patrol en:Category:Requests for unblock, and since I often find username change requests there, I could help to process those more efficiently. I am currently an administrator, CheckUser, and Oversighter on the English Wikipedia. —DoRD talk 18:47, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

Not ending before 27 January 2017 18:47 UTC
  • Oppose Oppose no x-wiki activity, and he doesn't seems to be highly active at enwiki in that area. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:04, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support Trusted user. In his CU role he does interact well with stewards and CUs from other wikis. --Rschen7754 19:13, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support for me, cross-wiki experience is not needed for this right. The user is competent sufficiently and can be trusted with this tool. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 19:20, 13 January 2017 (UTC).
  • Support Support Reliable user when owning CU and OS tools in English Wikipedia. I do not think you need to consider your cross-wiki activity. Alvaro Molina.png Alvaro Molina (Let's Talk) 19:24, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support - Trusted user. BTW... DoRD is one of the few editors I respect a lot. All the best. Wikicology (talk) 19:47, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support As global rename becomes more and more mature, I think crosswiki activity becomes less of a concern (Let's not forget that my crosswiki activity was rather poor when I ran for the global rename tool). The biggest factor in selecting new global renamers should be trust, because global rename is a tool that can cause serious issues if misused. This user has CheckUser and Oversight on the English Wikipedia, which are not tools for toddlers to play with, and if they can be trusted not to use checkuser "Out of personal curiosity" or oversight their own embarrassing edits from eons ago, they can be trusted not to rename Jimbo Wales to some silly username. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 21:31, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose I agree with Steinsplitter. Limited cross wiki activity and frankly there are already quite a few people who do renames and they rarely sit long before they are done. Reguyla (talk) 00:35, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support. Users blocked on en.wiki for disallowed usernames are told to follow the procedure of requesting an unblock while specifying a new name they want to use, waiting for unblock, and then having to go and make the actual rename request somewhere else, with a warning that if they don't do it quickly they risk being blocked again. That is cumbersome and confusing, especially as it is usually newcomers who are hit by it (and to anyone not immersed in some of Wikipedia's arcane procedures which are often only there for historical or technical reasons, it can seem ludicrous). Having admins who can do the unblock and rename at the same time is a far superior approach, in my view - and it's got nothing to do with how many renamers there already are or how quickly the rename request queue is processed. Since I gained the renamer right, I have renamed/unblocked probably hundreds of 166 (rightly fearing optimism, I thought I'd better count) en.wiki users, making things simpler for them and making less work for those who process the unblock queue, and I honestly see no downside to that. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 13:59, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
Yes, you are right. While I have opposed users in the past on the basis of no enough cross-wiki activities, I believe there are some users that shouldn't be opposed on that basis especially those who are active here for example. Wikicology (talk) 16:47, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support. DoRD is trustworthy and already has sufficient experience as an advanced rights holder. He would easily put the mop to good use. RadiX 19:09, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support Enwiki, being the biggest project and about 1/4th of the active userbase, has a corresponding larger need for such renames. As such, I'm not too concerned with global experience in these cases - as with any global renamers, I expect them to be active on their home projects first, and only expand to handling more general requests as they gain experience and feel comfortable doing so. As with this specific candidate, I have no concerns with them using rename permissions. Though not sure I'd call it a mop, RadiX ;-) – Ajraddatz (talk) 02:09, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Obvious Yes. --Kaulder (contribs | talk) 16:10, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
