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
}}

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 rollback for Matiia[edit]

Hello, I have been doing countervandalism for a while on #cvn-sw (among other channels), and I would like to have the GR flag, it will be easier than using Twinkle, that sometimes doesn't load very well or I can't use it until I have a few edits, and my Internet doesn't help hehe, also, I could avoid captcha issues. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Matiia (talk)

  • I went though a few of your reverts, and most of them were good, but I'd like to hear your thoughts on the few questionable ones I found:
    • Please explain this revert. It looks like the IP was trying to "move" the page with copy/paste (not ideal but "okay" if a link to the old one is given), but now there are two identical pages. Do you think this "move" was appropriate? Would asking the IP editor about this have been better? (I don't know Shona, so I have no idea which title is better)
When I saw that edit, the IP address had not created yet that page, I saw he was making a redirection from that page to a broken link, that's why I made that edit. And no, it was not right, the user didn't respected the "attribution". I think I should have waited a little more and see what was the user going to do after that, and see if he was going to create the page. --Matiia (talk) 06:05, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
    • Why did you revert the addition of a correct Croatian translation of "bedsheet" on Bulgarian Wiktionary?
It was a mistake. Already fixed. --Matiia (talk) 06:05, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
    • This revert looks like it might correct, but I'm not sure, since it added (mostly correct) content with incorrect capitalisation. Although I probably would have left it to the local community, I think the revert was OK; just wanted to put it here in case anyone else is interested.

Global rollback for R3kt[edit]

Hi all! I'm R3kt (formally Samuel Najdowski (also known as Snaj, alpha, etc on IRC) and I'd like to request global rollback today because I'm a member of the Counter-vandalism network and SWMT. You see, I was a newbie about a year ago, and now that I plan to stick to this account I've been sticking to for 5+ months, I'd like to request for these rights. I'm helpful in the SWMT channel, I know policies of when to revert and when not to (I've done Counter-vandalism on Wikia, but I've decided to move to WMF CVN recently) and in addition to that, even though my edit count is low atm, I plan to do more counter-vandalism even after I request this.. so no hard feelings if people say oppose. I'm known throughout the countervandalism community as a helper and a knowledgeable person when it comes to countervandalism (I've done it since October 2013); I've been active in most of the channels for a while now. Some Wikians might not like me due to past behavior, but I can assure you that isn't me anymore. Last but no least, I know what the rollback tools do and when to use them and when not to, as I've stated and most Wikimedians should know that. I'm just starting out, but my experience is high in this field and I feel I can be a great help if I put my mind to it.. the choice is yours. R3kt (talk) 22:40, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Oppose Oppose. No cross-wiki experience. -- Tegel (Talk) 22:43, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment Comment. Tegel, even if I haven't done much yet, I /do/ have crosswiki experience from learning from other and I was good with crosswiki countervandalism at Wikia; if that means anything. I know exactly what to do in a crosswiki vandalism/spam situation. R3kt (talk) 22:47, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
  • The fact that you changed usernames again shows me no more maturity than before. I don't care what you did on Wikia, but I don't think that there is much use for you to have these rights here. Ajraddatz (talk) 22:48, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Ajr, I *renamed* because I had a privacy concern, I *didn't* change accounts and haven't for over five months. You and everyone else that has ever known me at Wikia calls me immature. I like you ajr, but basing everything on the past is hardly a fair assumption to make. R3kt (talk) 22:52, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per Tegel. There are big differences between Wikia and the Wikimedia Foundation wikis and thus your experience there, while laudable, is insufficient for this.--Jasper Deng (talk) 23:02, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Not much cross-wiki experience and per Jasper Deng. Sorry. Jianhui67 talkcontribs 09:04, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Global sysop for JAn Dudík[edit]

Not ending before 9 March 2015 13:47 UTC

I want to ask for Global sysop right. I am now working mainly on interwiki on small Wikitionaries, I plan to work on connecting pages with Wikidata on small Wikipedias too. There is minimal activity and local sysops are mostly inactive and some experiments, pages marked for deletion, empty pages etc. stays here for long months. I have sysop rights on cswiki, cswikt, skwikt and wikidata now, so I could say I am experienced user. JAn Dudík (talk) 13:47, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Question Question: I notice you tag this page for deletion ky:Калып:Tlc/doc, this wiki have 3 admins, and none of them is you, will you delete this page without being requested by local communities or the author if you are a Global Sysops? --AldNonymousBicara? 14:02, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
    Usually I only mark page for deletion, if is not typical experiment. But if there are marked pages for years and I am able to understand why this page should be deleted, I'll delete it directly. There are wikis like setswana wiktionary, where are no active local users, and these would be my main field of work. JAn Dudík (talk) 07:40, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Kharkiv07[edit]

Hi! I've been making a lot of contributions to the English Wikipedia, but due to scheduling many of my work will have to be done from an institution that has unfortunately received a global IP block. It would be great if I could receive an exemption so I can continue to edit. You can check out my contributions or my talk page for verification of my clean record. Thanks for consideration! Kharkiv07 (talk) 17:42, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

(Note that the IP in question is 173.86.206.114) Kharkiv07 (talk) 14:26, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

if you are only editing enwiki, you don't need global ip block exempt, you can ask it localy for enwiki Mardetanha talk 14:29, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
Done. The local IPBE group no longer exempts people from global blocks, and honestly forcing them to go through the hoops locally and then come back here if they are ever globally active doesn't seem like a good use of anyone's time. Ajraddatz (talk) 07:28, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
When was this change made? Ruslik (talk) 18:33, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Not sure, but it has been in place for at least a year now. I first noticed in March of last year when I was confused about stewards not granting the global flag to people only active on one wiki. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:40, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
I am not sure that you are right. Ruslik (talk) 18:49, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
I am looking at the composition of both groups. The local IPBE group contains only ipblock-exempt, when it seems that globalblock-exempt is required to be exempt from local blocks. I have not tested it. Regardless, as I said on the mailing list, moving between projects is increasingly common on Wikimedia (especially with commons and wikidata). Not granting the global flag only prevents users from contributing to other projects when they are clearly trusted enough to not be blocked. Ajraddatz (talk) 19:07, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Just tested; the ipblock-exempt user right does exempt from global blocks as well. Good call Ruslik0. I still maintain, however, that bouncing users back to the local communities after they request the right here doesn't make sense. Ajraddatz (talk) 19:13, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Priority is with local right, Global IP block exempt is definitely for people whose nature of work is cross-wiki if not they should ask their respected local community Mardetanha talk 21:34, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
I just assumed that since it was a global IP block it needed to be appealed globally, and a steward in the IRC mentioned that too. If I may recommend that that be clarified somewhere, I would've just gone to enwiki if I saw that it was just a hard block on there as opposed to global. Kharkiv07 (talk) 03:19, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Mjbmr[edit]

Please extend expiration, thank you. --Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 20:02, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

@Savh: @Billinghurst: Please make it permanent or remove it, I can't use it like this. Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 10:22, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
In your first request you state you had to "use shared IPs for the next month". What has changed that makes this right yet again necessary? And why does it help you that much that instead of having to request renewal, you rather have it removed directly? Savhñ 21:43, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Oppose, so many controversial stuff happen regarding this user. And the worst is, he don't know his own mistake and not regretting his own action, on previous closed unsuccessful RfA there are lines "I want to test steward inteligence", which is imo, counterproductive.--AldNonymousBicara? 07:47, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Scoopfinder[edit]

Travelling a lot, I've to use TOR, VPN and anonymous proxies in some countries / companies / schools to access/edit the projects safely. I already have the right on frwiki, but I plan to be active on commons, meta, frwikivoyage and enwiki (and probably more), so becoming a member of this global group seems a time saving oppportunity. (~16k edits, bot with ~50k edits, abusefilter editor on frwiki, no block history) --Scoopfinder (talk) 17:39, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt will only exempt your from global blocks, not from local. Ruslik (talk) 20:29, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
I know, Ruslik, I read the policy carefully and, for what I understood, TOR and anonymous proxies can also be global blocked, nope ? For the wikis where I edit mostly, I'll ask for the local exemption (already have it on frwiki + wikidata). Tell me if I'm wrong =) --Scoopfinder(d) 23:04, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
