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 sysop for Atcovi[edit]

Not ending before 12 February 2017 03:15 UTC

I'd like to request this right due to my increase need. I've been actively working on SWMT work for the last two months, and I've came across two wikis that I'd like to share as examples: vi.wikibooks and tl.wikibooks. At the Vietnamese Wikibooks, there are over 300 pages that have been blanked by this IP that actively contributes there. I would like to determine (instead of flooding #wikimedia-gs) whether these pages are worthy of deletion for no content, or the last contributor should be reverted and the original content be restored. At tl.wikibooks, several IPs come onto the website and vandalize several pages: (mainly: https://tl.wikibooks.org/w/index.php?title=Noli_Me_Tangere/Kabanata_41_:_Dalawang_Dalaw&curid=3018&action=history and https://tl.wikibooks.org/w/index.php?title=Tagalog/Pang-uri&action=history). I'd like to patrol this wiki and delete pages that are worthy of deletion. Obviously, these are only two examples and my work is not going to be entangled on these 2 specific wikis.

In addition, I would also like to block users. Recently I had to revert over 20 edits of page-blankers on ko projects, see: https://ko.wiktionary.org/wiki/%ED%8A%B9%EC%88%98:%EA%B8%B0%EC%97%AC/Atcovi and https://ko.wikibooks.org/wiki/%ED%8A%B9%EC%88%98:%EA%B8%B0%EC%97%AC/Atcovi). In the future, I'd like to put an immediate stop onto these vandals rather than wait for another global sysop to do it.

I hope that I am elected as a global sysop because I have shown, with evidence, a true need for this right. Thanks. --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 03:15, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Neutral Neutral I do not see a demonstrated global need, however, I do not doubt that it would do a good job. I would like to see more opinions. Alvaro Molina.png Alvaro Molina (Let's Talk) 03:26, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Neutral Neutral I need to think about this one. You've done fine as a global rollbacker but global sysop is hard to monitor (misuse of the right can go undetected for a long time), and the past issues of 2013-2014 give me pause. --Rschen7754 08:03, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose There are still a few points (e.g. distinguishing what is a good wiki for a GS to act on or not) where I do not feel comfortable granting access, but I see most of the reasons why previous requests (for any other permission) were rejected no longer apply. Considering the great development and maturing over the past years, I suppose a further request in 1-2 years could be ready to be granted. For the current need, however, I would suggest requesting temporary local adminship on the two wikis in question in order clean up. Kind regards, --Vogone (talk) 09:31, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
Just to be clear, I'm aware of what wikis are for GS and not (I've read https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Global_sysops#Scope). Here, I'll show why vo.wikibooks would be a GS wiki. This is because all of these wikis have inactive admins, see https://vi.wikibooks.org/w/index.php?title=%C4%90%E1%BA%B7c_bi%E1%BB%87t%3ADanh_s%C3%A1ch_th%C3%A0nh_vi%C3%AAn&username=&group=sysop&limit=50 (Mxn, last contributed nearly a year ago, with admin action the same). I thought I'd clarify this, because I believe I do know which wiki is GS and which is not. EDIT: I'd also like to clarify that I would like to work globally as a sysop, not on these wikis I've listed... these were just examples. I think requesting local adminship on four wikis would seem hat-collectish of me. --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 15:26, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Neutral, I see your cross-wiki work at small wikis, however I'm not seeing a demostrated use of this right. Perhaps on the future, but now I don't know. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 13:55, 29 January 2017 (UTC).
ks-M9 do you mean you don't see me using this right on any other wiki? I have sysop rights on en.wikibooks for nearly two years now, if that is what you are referring to. --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 15:06, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
  • weak oppose for now, keep up the good work, but I think more experience is needed cross the language barier. —Ah3kal (talk) 09:21, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Mild support in these years I saw an impressive growth in Atcovi's commitment and skills, I'd prefer a WSNT but I want to encourage him in following this path. --Vituzzu (talk) 17:31, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
    @Vituzzu: What does WSNT mean? "Would support next time"? PiRSquared17 (talk) 23:12, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
    @PiRSquared17: See wiktionary:WSNT: "I will support (him/her/them/you) next time" (well, it's bizzare to find it in the Italian wiktionary and not elsewhere... O.o). --Lucas (talk) 18:08, 6 February 2017 (UTC)
{{strong support}}: I like when he's an administrator on Wikibooks. His edits were constructive. Thanks, 2602:304:68AD:3220:E9E1:136E:19D7:E9F5 02:00, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Neutral Neutral I started writing something, but then noticed that Vogone had said the same thing up above. So I'm neutral, but would support something along the lines of what Vogone suggested as an interim test. StevenJ81 (talk) 23:53, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
{{strong support}} for now. Thanks, 2602:304:68AD:3220:6579:27EC:1313:9E76 17:18, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Support Support no doubt Atcov will make good use of the tools. --Druddigon (talk | contributions) 21:10, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Mild support. I agree with Vituzzu, and I also think the current need has not been clearly demonstrated, as Vogone said. However, I am simply giving to the candidate the credit of trust, because he will benefit from the tools in the work he does on some small wikis. RadiX 02:26, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Weak support per Vituzzu. Jianhui67 talkcontribs 16:10, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
  • GA candidate.svg Weak support - per above. Thanks, 70.138.211.34 03:43, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Mild support, mostly per Radix and Vito. I think he would not misuse the rights.--Syum90 (talk) 17:55, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support. I agree with RadiX. Furthermore, I analyzed Atcovi's edits and actions on some projects and I think he's prepared for the role. Érico (talk) 23:18, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg Strong oppose I don't usually use the fancy templates, but here it is appropriate. I agree with Vogone's concerns. I still do not think this user has improved; that he is yet again requesting here shows that. --MF-W 23:34, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
MF-W, "that he is yet again requesting here shows that." I don't understand. Is there something wrong me with me requesting gs rights? And I don't understand "again". Please explain so I can improve, I am open for criticism. Thanks. --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 03:02, 11 February 2017 (UTC)
Should I link to your previous requests? --MF-W 16:46, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
I am aware that I have requested gr two times and gs once (this time). --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 17:21, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

Global sysop for Billinghurst[edit]

Not ending before 1 March 2017 01:38 UTC

Hi to all. I am looking to do some xwikisource work, or at least to be able to work with the smaller WS communities in that space to resolve some issues. I could apply for Global interface editors to do the WSes work, however, it is probably okay for to just put my hand up for GS rights as I have continued doing holistic anti-spam work through AbuseLog/Title blacklist/Spamblocklist/COIBot. I am an active and experience editor and administrator across many wikis; currently have five admin rights (enWS, enWP, C, M, MW) plus GR. I have had other advanced admin rights and believe that I have acted responsibly with those rights and can demonstrate that I can act appropriately with communities while holding advanced rights. I am not looking to do more in the SWMT, though as bibs and bobs pop up, I would deal with them directly rather than mark for others. Anyway, I will throw it over to the community and check back in a couple of weeks. If you have any questions please do ask, and please do ping me as I am not actively following this page. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:38, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

Global rename for Murbaut[edit]

Not ending before 24 February 2017 15:32 UTC

Hi friend. I want help for changing user names, one of them in idwiki, I had already offered assistance for this. I know there is bennylin (steward) and also Aldnonymous but he was not always active in the renaming. I understand the name of prohibited and permitted. I am also a member of SWMT.
