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.

Global rollback and global interface editor requests require no fewer than 5 days of discussion while abuse filter maintainer requests require no fewer than 7 days. Global renamer and global sysop requests require no fewer than 2 weeks of discussion. 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: You have sufficient activity to meet the requirements to be allocated the global rollback flag

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 {{subst:u|{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}}} ===
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!-- don't change this line -->
 |domain    = global <!-- don't change this line -->
 |user name = {{subst:REVISIONUSER}} <!-- don't change this line unless you're nominating another user -->
}}
::''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.

Please note: Since 2019 all global sysops are required to have two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled.

Global sysop for 1234qwer1234qwer4[edit]

Not ending before 28 May 2022 16:43 UTC

Hello everyone, thanks for reading my request. I have been active in cross-wiki maintenance and antiabuse tasks for a bit over a year, and became an admin on Meta-Wiki in May 2021. Since then I have gained a lot of experience in dealing with small wikis, submitting numerous reports to GSR as well as indirectly interacting with them by editing global abuse filters and the title blacklist. To act more efficiently in these areas, I would like to request global sysop permissions, and have also been encouraged to do so by a couple other editors. More recently I was granted sysop access on Commons, so I believe I am trusted enough for this role. I am familiar with the GS policy and am only going to use the tools in uncontroversial situations where no local admins are available, as I already do with my requests. Thank you for your consideration. ~~~~

Global rename for MdsShakil[edit]

Not ending before 6 June 2022 16:49 UTC

Hello everyone. I'd like to request global rename permission to assist rename request. My main focus on bnwiki, meta and as well as others rcquest that's filled by Special:GlobalRenameRequest. I am an crosswiki contributor, an administrator on bnwikibooks, Global rollbacker and VRT permissions agents. I believe, if I get this access then i best use of the tools. Thanks --MdsShakil (talk) 16:49, 23 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Comment Comment According to Xtools, you have 6 edits at SRUC and 5 edits at bnwiki renaming page. What would you do if an user who has registered for 2 weeks with 800 edits globally and some extended rights at their homewiki asks for usurpation of an account with 50 edits, all deleted, that was locked 10 years ago for crosswiki abusing? NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 23:49, 23 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    Thanks for your question. Basically, these two pages are used by global renamers/Stewards and applicants where no other user's assistant is needed, so I did not edit these pages so much.
    It's a very new account for usurpation, so this request will initially failed. I think it's better that such this type request (takeover an locked account) is handled by a steward. --MdsShakil (talk) 02:07, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    Thanks for your answer. GA candidate.svg Weak support NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 02:17, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • GA candidate.svg Weak support per response to NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh's question, whom I thank for asking a question of MdsShakil. I love to see that in such cases. The answer hit the right points in general terms, but I would also have liked to have seen MdsShakil be a sysop first on the wiki where he's most active (bnwiki). That being said, he's active on Bengali Wikibooks, where there's arguably a greater need for administrators anyway. As well, I know MdsShakil from Miraheze, where they have exhibited technical proficiency and a good understanding of Miraheze global policies. Dmehus (talk) 02:23, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    Note that I weakly supported due to MdsShakil's inexperience at pages he intended to work on, and that he answered about how the request would end, not what he would do in such a situation. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 02:28, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

2FA Tester for Dmehus[edit]

Hi, I would like to be able to enable two-factor authentication on my Wikimedia account, and don't hold local interface-admin permissions on any Wikimedia wiki, so am not able to enable two-factor authentication with user rights bundled with that local group. I have read the help page, will retain my scratch codes in a safe place, and always maintain access to my confirmed, registered e-mail address associated with my account. Additionally, I am also an active Steward on Miraheze where I am required to have two-factor authentication enabled, and my username is the same as on Wikimedia, so it additionally makes sense for me to have two-factor authentication enabled here, too. --Dmehus (talk) 02:10, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done -- Amanda (she/her) 02:20, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Global editinterface for Sophivorus[edit]

Hi! Following my requests in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021, I'd like to request a renewal of my editinterface global permission, mainly because I maintain the cross-wiki ProveIt gadget (40+ wikis), the protected Excerpt templates and modules (20+ wikis) and some smaller tools in Wikiversity, Commons and the Spanish Wikipedia. Thanks for your consideration! Sophivorus (talk) 00:30, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
