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 sysop for Esteban16[edit]

Hi! I have been several months dealing with x-wiki vandalism, and I consider myself capable of holding this flag. I would like to get the flag to help more efficiently on x-wiki stuff. Esteban16 (talk) 22:09, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for confirming that asking the question was useless. My issue is that it was handled in such an "impolite" way, asking a question to which the answer is obvious and then slapping an oppose into the candidate's face for not doing something he was not able to, instead of privately informing him about the virtues of 2FA or whatever. --MF-W 10:54, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Kotecky[edit]

Global IP block exempt for AlexLeeCN[edit]

I'm a rollbacker at zhwiki and I live in China Mainland.So I have to use open proxies to access wikipedia ,I have owned IPBE at zhwiki.I also handle some copyright violation problems at commons.But current my ip(172.104.0.0/16) was blocked by Vituzzu.So I can’t edit other project under foundation.Above all,I hope I can get gobal IPBE.

Global IP block exempt for 20person[edit]

I'm a regular user, and I believe that I've been caught in a global block by mistake, which may be related to my use of a VPN or my current ISP that may have assigned me the blocked ISP. Could I be removed from the block? Thanks. --20person (talk) 01:00, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

Global IP block exemption for chidgk1[edit]

I have had ip block exemption on English Wikipedia for some time as I use ExpressVPN to edit due to the block of Wikipedia in Turkey where I live. I would also like to edit Simple English Wikipedia and Turkish Wikipedia but I cannot see any obvious procedure to apply for local exemptions on those wikis so perhaps those wikis do not have local blocks. The error messages are not completely written in Turkish or Simple English so I suspect a global block. Can you give me global exemption please? Regards Chidgk1 (talk) 18:25, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

Done. — regards, Revi 06:25, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

Global rename for Editor D.S[edit]

Not ending before 22 December 2018 20:37 UTC

I request the status of account renamer with the purpose of speeding up the requests in pt.wikipedia and also in other lusophone projects. I'm currently an Sysop in pt.wikinews, besides being eliminator and rollbacker in pt.wikipedia. I know this does not count for much, but I already used the renaming tool on another Wiki that does not have Wikimedia. I wish I could contribute more to this tool on my original Wiki. Thank you very much in advance. --Editor D.S (talk)Meta-Wiki Patroller.png 20:38, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

  • Oppose Oppose for now. While you do seem trusted there's no indication that you have any knowledge about the global renaming policy nor have you worked extensively on the pt.wiki rename request page. I'm not really seeing a need for the tool at pt.wiki either. Hiàn (talk) 23:18, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
Hiàn, thank you for your participation. I just want to say that I am willing to answer questions about the renaming policy. And about working on the pt.wiki rename request page, I've tried to do that, but a project administrator said that only renamers could comment on requests. --Editor D.S (talk)Meta-Wiki Patroller.png 23:37, 9 December 2018 (UTC)~
Thanks for your swift response Editor D.S and for clearing up things. I'm reconsidering my opinion - I've struck it out. Hiàn (talk) 23:40, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Neutral Neutral I don't particularly care about the "no experience with the global rename policy" bit raised by Hiàn, and don't really consider that a good reason to oppose: really, no one is going to be familiar with the procedures that we use unless they are a renamer or steward, and I find "clerking" renames to be less than useless and usually borderline disruptive, so I'd highly discourage anyone from doing that to try to get this hat.

    I'm neutral because my normal standard here is "trust" which can be demonstrated by being a sysop on a large wiki (any wikinews does not count towards this) or by substantial work on meta/xwiki. While Editor D.S. had some previous experience on meta, they largely fell off after a few months, and it doesn't meet the threshold I have for trust in that area. That being said, they appear trusted on their home project so I can't outright oppose. I can't support either, however. TonyBallioni (talk) 23:28, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Global rename for TheSandDoctor[edit]

I am requesting global renamer as I would like to assist with renaming users and wish to branch out from solely helping on en-wiki, where I am currently an administrator (sysop) and active bot operator/developer. Most of my work on enwiki is in administrative areas and I would like to be able to assist users with renaming in order to help reduce the backlogs and wait time for those requiring/requesting renaming. The only reason I apply for any user rights is with the goal of helping out and easing the burden on others (in this case, global renamers). I have reviewed the Global rename policy and feel that I can help out further. I thank you for your time and consideration. --TheSandDoctor Talk 08:59, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Individual projects may have backlogs, but not any where TheSandDoctor is fluent in the language of. Vermont (talk) 15:21, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
Good point raised by Vermont, beside English and French, what other languages could you understand TheSandDoctor? I am asking as your SUL isn't showing a lot of crosswiki activity. In addition, there had been many recent enwiki GR being promoted, so the backlog at enwiki should be manageable. Is there any backlogs at French Projects? Thanks for your willingness to come forward nevertheless.--Cohaf (talk) 15:31, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
@Cohaf: Unfortunately those are the only two at this time. --TheSandDoctor Talk 17:30, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
@TheSandDoctor:Noted with thanks. --Cohaf (talk) 17:44, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support per my comments in the neutral above: sysop on a major project, so meets the trust requirement, and I’m not particularly sure why Cohaf brings up the en.wiki blocking policy as unlike other requests, this one specifically doesn’t mention it and explicitly says they want to help beyond en.wiki, so that normal reason for objecting makes zero sense here and it’s not fair at all to raise the issue with every en admin who applies. The “no backlogs” argument is also a weak reason to oppose because, well, by that standard we shouldn’t have any new renamers. Adding more people who can be trusted is a good thing. This permission should not be membership in a club that you can only get if you’re friends with meta people or know a major language that has no renamers. Namely, support because there are no reasons to oppose here. TonyBallioni (talk) 15:38, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
    • @TonyBallioni:I raise that up exactly to prevent any further discussion of that issue in GR. Clearly we should evaluate the candidate based on themselves, not any local banning policies. Every enwiki admin which applies here almost have their discussion filled with it. I personally felt enough is being said and hope this application will be more focused on the applicant. That's not an objection at all, I think you got me totally wrong.--Cohaf (talk) 15:51, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
      • Cohaf, I'm sorry for misunderstanding you. I was confused by the bringing it up at all, which I think distracts from the candidate, but I now understand what you were trying to do. TonyBallioni (talk) 15:59, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
        • We are on the same side for this issue Tony. I am personally asking the SUL issue is that as far as backlogs are concerned, language competency is sometimes needed to prevent the current case at SRUC from happening as they seemed to be willing to work on the global queue. --Cohaf (talk) 16:06, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
          • Meh, you just ignore the requests that come in in a language you can't understand or you use Google translate if it's been sitting there for a while and it's obviously not going to be an issue. TonyBallioni (talk) 16:09, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
              • Meh indeed after thinking retrospectively. However, Google translate is awfully bad for Chinese till that extent we have a special CSD criterion at Chinese Wikipedia for poor quality machine translation. --Cohaf (talk) 16:22, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
                • I would only work where I understood the language and do recall how bad google translate is at muddling things up. Machine translations aren't always pretty. As for your original comment Cohaf, I found it slightly ambiguous as Tony did, but figured that that was what you meant. --TheSandDoctor Talk 17:30, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

                    • Don't worry Cohaf, none was caused Face-smile.svg. I just hope that it isn't misinterpreted by others who might read that as an oppose without looking further. I don't believe that that is likely, but still. --TheSandDoctor Talk 17:50, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
    • @TonyBallioni: The "no backlogs" argument is just as weak as the "I want the right to help with nonexistent backlogs" which is the only reason he is applying for this right. Nihlus 19:28, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
      • Yeah, but one, he can’t actually see the GlobalRenameQueue so didn’t know that and you can hardly hold it against him, and two, having more trusted hands on deck is always a good thing. We’re not exactly talking rocket science here, and while global renamer can do a lot of damage, in most cases it’s pretty straightforward. I don’t see TSD running to the complex cases and mucking stuff up. TonyBallioni (talk) 19:40, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Global rename for Jimmy Xu[edit]

Requesting the right to deal with the backlog on zh:WP:CHU. Ex-global renamer attempting to come out of inactivity :) Jimmy Xu (talk) 14:26, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Not ending before 27 December 2018 14:26 UTC
  • Support Strongest Support. Experienced, Reliable and Clearly Competent. A 4th mandarin speaking GR is much overdue. Our local CHU page is backlogged perpetually even till the extent that many users came over to meta SRUC for a faster response. Thanks for volunteering and I believe they'll do very well.--Cohaf (talk) 14:34, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support Good to see people back from inactivity. –Ammarpad (talk) 14:54, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose last 500 contributions on his home project go back over a year and he basically just started editing again this month. I welcome returns from inactivity, but I prefer there to be evidence it is actually a return from inactivity and not just being on Wikipedia for the holiday break. I’d suggest applying again in 3 months if you’re still active. TonyBallioni (talk) 15:44, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
    My view on inactivity is that doing any work at all should still be better than none. While I'm trying to get myself back to article writing, I still enjoy doing these housekeeping work in the meantime. Jimmy Xu (talk) 21:23, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
  • GA candidate.svg Weak support Jimmy Xu meets my trust requirement adequately. Being a former renamer is also a plus. However, I do share TonyBallioni's concerns of inactivity limiting the amount of time you are able to dedicate to renaming users. I would definitely want to see some more activity to ensure that the bit doesn't simply get removed again. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 20:47, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support I partly share TonyBallioni's reservations about activity, but others are pointing to strong pluses, so I can support. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 09:14, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

  • Support Support Why not? If the user is requesting permission again and already has the necessary experience/trust, there should be no reason to think that the user will again fall into inactivity. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 18:30, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support per AlvaroMolina. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 17:06, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

Global edit interface for Kaldari[edit]

I've been a global interface editor since 2010, but the right recently expired and was removed (yesterday). I use this right constantly and am a frequent editor of Javascript and templates on both large and small wikis. --Kaldari (talk) 20:33, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

@Kaldari: Could you please send an email to ca@wikimedia.org? They can explain you why it was removed and give you instructions on how to get it reinstated. Trijnsteltalk 19:57, 2 December 2018 (UTC)
Trijnstel: It's actually not related to that, from the policy-wise. Kaldari's GIE expired in 2016 but was not removed until I did it. — regards, Revi 07:39, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
Kaldari, will you activate (if not already) and maintain two-factor authentication enabled as is now required by WMF? — xaosflux Talk 12:52, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
Kaldari Could you please comment on the above? It's been 12 days since you last commented here. Thanks. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:28, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
That is a good question. Give me another day to think about it. Kaldari (talk) 17:09, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

2FA access for Jkm7[edit]

I'd like to secure my account with two-factor authentication, if possible. I'm not sure if certain requirements need to be met beforehand, but this page says to request the feature here. Thanks, --Jkm7 (talk) 15:17, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

You have only few contributions and 2FA is not necessary for you. If you still want it enabled, you should understand how this feature work, not to be locked out of your account. Ruslik (talk) 18:11, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
I understand how the feature works, and have measures in place to prevent TOTP secret loss. I would still like it enabled. Thanks, Jkm7 (talk) 03:02, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

2FA access for Stilbes[edit]

I edit Wikipedia intermittently, and have created the English Wikipedia articles Gregory of Corinth, Constantine Stilbes, and Rami Hamdallah. When I logged in today, I received the message that I have had 318 failed log in attempts since my last log-in. Last time I logged in, I was also given notice of many failed log-ins. I believe this is because the article Rami Hamdallah (Palestinian Prime-Minister) pertains to the Israel-Palestinian conflict and someone with a political agenda may be trying to compromise my account. I would like access to 2FA, please.

Do you have a good understanding of how 2FA works? Ruslik (talk) 18:13, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
