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.

 |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.

Global sysop for Biplab Anand[edit]

Not ending before 6 October 2016 10:52 UTC

Hello Friends, I would like to request for GS. This is my second request. I'm a Global Renamer and active in the Small Wiki Monitoring Team. I have experience with the sysop tool as being a sysop on newiki and maiwiki. This tool would help me to delete vandalism and spam pages. You can find me on IRC under the nick Biplab in multiple Wikimedia channels. I surely concern about the scope of GS and also concern where I can use the tool and where it shouldn't be used. Now I have to ask other global sysops or stewards, but it would be much easier when I can do it by myself. If I appointed as a global sysop, I'll be helpful for maintenance and anti-vandalism. Thanks--Biplab Anand (Talk) 10:52, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

    Just out of curiosity: Who of the current GS has English as a mother tongue besides PiRSquared17? To me, language diversity seems to be among the least important "issues" currently. --Vogone (talk) 10:21, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
    Hi Vogone. I don't say that we need less English speakers but as long as we have more than 50 languages without any sysop I think we definitively need more people speaking other languages. --Holder (talk) 16:29, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Redorhcal[edit]

Hi, I am requesting an Global IP exemption due to my school earning multiple bans Fairfax County Public Schools IP Talk page, preventing me from logging in and using sandbox feature, among others. I instead want to use my server SSH vpn (IP: 198.71.240.7 ) with my global account to connect to Wikipedia. My 198 Section was blocked last yaer before I had control by Vito, but he directed me here.

Global rename for Murbaut[edit]

Not ending before 11 October 2016 04:39 UTC

Hi Friends. I would to request Global Rename. I'm member of the SMWT and understand of all for indonesian dialect language, I know what the name is promote or not . I want to help it, one of them id:Wikipedia:Pengubahan_nama_pengguna/Permohonan I was read the procedur or policy of the Global Rename. I have a IRC mynick "Murbaut". Thanks you for read myrequest :) Murbaut (talk) 04:39, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

  • Neutral Neutral I have my doubts, but anyway, I do not see a bad candidate. Alvaro Molina.png Alvaro Molina (Let's Talk) 06:05, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Neutral Neutral for now. I will change my vote after a thorough review of his crosswiki contributions. Seems like an editor who is keen and willing to contribute. No visible or glaring problems at first glance. Jianhui67 talkcontribs 06:07, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
    I am staying neutral for a few reasons. I am not sure if the candidate has enough crosswiki experience or not as he is rather new to Wikimedia in general (account created 5 months ago). But I think he seems willing to help. I am not against him obtaining the right, but I do not find myself comfortable to endorse either. Jianhui67 talkcontribs 17:47, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose - I am not seeing enough experience to grant this right at this time. This is a relatively new account, registered 5 months ago with 2,700 global edits count. Please come back next year, I'll be glad to support you. Wikicology (talk) 16:34, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for vote. And I had previously edited using anonymous maybe one years, as I know has a lot functions if create anaccount. Then I made the account.  :) Murbaut (talk) 07:50, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

Global abusefilter-helper for Orlodrim[edit]

I would like to understand the actions of private global filters and be able to help users who report false positives about them on frwiki. I am a sysop and an abusefilter editor on frwiki.

Thanks, Orlodrim (talk) 20:27, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

  • No issues here, per the various similar requests in the past. But my colleagues suggest that I can't just assign the permission without some discussion. -- Ajraddatz (talk) 22:55, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
  • I still believe this flag here is inappropriate for this use case, since it doesn't only give access to global filters, but to all filters on all wikis and on top doesn't grant you the ability to "help users who report false positives about them", since it's a read-only permission. But as long as no "global filter" group exists, I can't suggest any better place to ask for a flag providing these features either. --Vogone (talk) 01:00, 9 September 2016 (UTC)
    It is already useful to understand how the filter works to provide some advice (for instance: "there was nothing wrong with your edit, but please create a draft instead of writing this on your user page"). Orlodrim (talk) 20:19, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
    I opened an RFC to create another group (Requests for comment/Local group of abusefilter helpers). Orlodrim (talk) 21:06, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Seems like this needs a technical request (a "view private global abuse filters" group?) rather than a permission request, but I don't see any specific concerns with a permission here after inspecting their history a bit. Consider this as a "consider technical fix" > "grant permission" > "don't grant permission" preference scaling on my part. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 09:06, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Ruslik (talk) 18:49, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. Orlodrim (talk) 20:19, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
Please, this is not the first time you close an RFP with open questions. There is no point in having a discussion at all if it's so frequently just ignored. --Vogone (talk) 21:01, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
First, all question here are optional. The nominee can choose to answer them or not. Second, a big surprise! I actually do not see any open question in this request! Moreover I do not even see any questions at all! Ruslik (talk) 19:53, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
I fail to see how this is a relevant answer. Of course it's optional that questions are asked on a request, however, if a candidate doesn't answer them, it usually reflects badly on his request. However, that is not even the problem here, as the candidate did answer to people. The problem is rather that of 3 commenting users, 2 said that there should be a different solution to this request, and the candidate himself opened an RFC in order to create a more suitable group. So just because there are no questions with question marks in this section, that doesn't mean that there were no problems here. I think the right should not have been granted. --MF-W 22:49, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
I am not sure that unanswered questions reflect badly on the nominee. This has never been the case. They (as well as answered questions for that matter) has no influence on the result of any discussion themselves. Rather failure to answer to them can make some people oppose, which will matter, of course. As to other solutions, nobody actually proposed any specific solution. (The RFC notice was posted after I closed the discussion.) Moreover nobody actually said the permission should not be granted - the comments were about some future possibility. Taking into account that (i) the permission requested was rather insignificant (ii) similar requests had been routinely granted before and (iii) that there were not any opposes I judged that a consensus existed to grant it. Postponing decision on this request until the RFC is completed would mean that the user would not be able to get necessary information for many weeks as the creation of a local usergroup requires a developer action after getting a clear consensus. Ruslik (talk) 20:42, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
Re-tagged as done. Concerns seem to be addressed. – Ajraddatz (talk) 18:45, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
