Global sysop for Samuele2002[edit]

The following request is closed.
Not ending before July 6 2017 15h04 UTC

I am global rolback and I'm very active in SWMT activities.I request for the Global Sysop flag for administrator actions on wikis without administrators or inactive administrators to defend these wikis from vandalisms. Very often I happen to put the Delete template on many pages (for various reasons: no sense, spam test ...) but I can not delete the pages directly.I know the tasks and functions of an admin very well because I'm administrator in various projects (it.wikiversity beta.wikiversity outreach Wikimania2017 ia.Wikibooks ia.wiktionary chr.wiktionary test and test2 wikipedia and test.wikidata). Thank you --Samuele2002 (Talk!) 15:04, 21 June 2017 (UTC)

    • In response to some of the points below, if it was 10 large or medium-sized production wikis I would be more concerned, but only half are content wikis. Arguably, some of the temporary sysop functions could be replaced by GS (I know some folks won't be happy with me saying that, and I know that global sysops are told to tread carefully, but it is generally accepted that GS rights can be used for cleanup purposes. That all being said, MarcoAurelio does have some points worth considering. --Rschen7754 07:11, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Comment. I am a bit concerned to be sincere. You currently hold adminship on 10 wikis, some of them on temporary basis, as you mention in your statement. Basically I share the feelings that Vituzzu pointed at you less than a month ago. This is not saying that you're doing bad out there, but accumulating statuses on several projects leads to quick burnout if not managed properly. If that happens it is likely that the burned out editor quits and an inactive user is like having no user at all. That said, I applaud your willingness to help global sysop wikis, though; but you should ask yourself if you can really handle them all and reply yourself with sincerity. If you've got the time and dedication to do it then 'thanks' for taking care of them, if not, it'll be wise not to further increase your responsabilities and take care of what you already do. Just a friendly advice. Regards, —MarcoAurelio 19:13, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

  • I respond to everyone before you can misunderstand some things:

It is not in my intentions collecting flags and prudent requests to do so are carefully calculated by assessing whether they are able to perform the task and I have no intent to have an excessive number of flags since in any case in the end what should I serve? Do not overdo the number of administrator flags and purposes

Of the 10 wiki where I have administrator flsg: 3 are trial 3 are temporary fls awaiting the flag of Global Sysop (because a month ago it was in my opinion a bit early to make the request) and those in which I really are active As administrator are only four 4

Since test wikis are like wiki names where testing admin functions without doing constant activity do not have any consideration I've just scored among the wikis I have the flag for transparency because I think it's always better to let them know right away In which wiki you are admin and so on.

So the other 7 wiki 3 are with the temporary flag allocated exclusively to start wiki monitoring before requiring the global sysop flag but i'm not going to renew the flag (in my fears that a premature request would probably be rejected ) So there are four wikis in which I am actually an administrator and it is not for collecting flags but just to be of help I would not have any place to brag about my flags. Of these four wikis: it.wikiversity and beta.wikiversity are the wikis in which I flag actively Outreach in order to be able to do the actions of an administrator and wikimania2017 in order to translate into Italian the pages of our mediawiki as well as obviously delete any spam pages or other. I do not see anything strange in this, but there are some doubts about time: I want to make clear that I have enough time to dedicate enough to Wikimedia projects. --Samuele2002 (Talk!) 11:07, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Support Support I'm aware of the hat collecting concerns, but I don't see any issues with sysop tool abuse and so I have no basis to oppose along those grounds.

Closed as no consensus following Steward discussion.

Having read carefully through the comments above and given the relative weights of the arguments, though most of the users are favoring support as there is supposedly enough crosswiki activity, quite a few others involved in countervandalism tasks have provided legit reasons to reject this request. By far the most relevant concerns in this discussion referred both to the hat collecting issue and to some mistakes made by him in a given small wiki. Either way, I do encourage Samuele2002 to carefully read the oppositions as constructive criticism, and to keep working on the elements which have been eliciting reasonable concerns by his fellow editors. On a personal note, I would also recommend him to take the points raised by MarcoAurelio into account and also free to re apply when he is ready. We surely appreciate his willingness to help the Wikimedia projects and wish him the best of luck with that.

Keep up the good work. :) RadiX 19:05, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Thank you all. I take note of the criticism and I will make sure I avoid repeating them. :) --Samuele2002 (Talk!) 09:21, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Global sysop for DARIO SEVERI[edit]

Not ending before 25 July 2017 04:06 UTC

Hello, I would like to request for GS. I'm active in the Small Wiki Monitoring Team.

I check several small Wikis every day and if I don't find vandalism I do small corrections, updates, add maps or moving categories. I often put the Delete template on clearly inappropriate pages, as I did in these wikis in the last days, ([16], [17], [18], [19], [20], [21], [22], [23], [24], [25], [26], [27] [28] [29] [30]) or when I change the name of an article and need to cancel the automatically created redirect as here [31], but it would be much quicker to delete them when I can do it by myself, and without waiting another sysop to do it. Be a global sysop it will be help me doing this.

I have already lot of experience with the sysop tool as being a sysop on three Wikis (+ 17,000 administrative actions [32]), and as editor I have more de 100 edits on 55 different projects, with a total over 75,000 edits.

If you have any questions please ask me. Thanks DARIO SEVERI (talk) 04:06, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Update (July, 18) - In the last days I added the Delete Template also in these pages: [33], [34], [35], [36], [37], [38], [39], [40], [41], [42], [43] and [44]. DARIO SEVERI (talk) 03:58, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Global rename for AlvaroMolina[edit]

Not ending before 5 August 2017 23:14 UTC

Hi, I introduce myself here to become a global renamer with the aim of being able to help in the global rename requests that take place here as in the global rename queue. I am a user who has been collaborating for more than 1 year in the Wikimedia projects since last year I am administrator and bureaucrat in Spanish Wikinews. I have read carefully the global rename policy and the requests that have been made here so as to know how to proceed in each case. If I am elected, I promise to do a good job as I have been doing the last few months and be quite active in this regard. Thanks. —Alvaro Molina ( - ) 23:14, 22 July 2017 (UTC)

  • Neutral, Alvaro is a great user with the sysop tool, but I'm not seeing work where he is active on, for example, local rename requests on eswiki who can check the name and determinate if the username is eligible for rename or not before can be renamed, or here helping to other global renamers applying the correspondent policy. Imo, activity on these areas (renamer-related areas) is needed before that I can support to this request. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 12:17, 23 July 2017 (UTC).

Request withdrawn After thinking about it, I would like in the first instance to address the concerns of Ks-M9 and then make a new request. —Alvaro Molina ( - ) 17:02, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

Global editinterface for Sophivorus[edit]

Hi! Almost one year ago I requested and received a global interface editor permission (my username was "Felipe Schenone" back then). I requested the permission for several reasons, one of which was because I had a grant to develop and spread the ProveIt gadget through several wikis. That grant has been successfully completed now. However, I'm still the maintainer of the gadget which is now spread on 10+ wikis, and all the other reasons for my original request still stand: I'm the main developer of the Wikidebate project on the English and Spanish Wikiversities and of the WikiWidgets project, which are cross-wiki projects that require constant edits to the MediaWiki namespace. In my previous request I also described my background on the community, which has since only increased. Thanks for reading! --Felipe (talk) 14:15, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Global editinterface for There'sNoTime[edit]

Hi all, I'd like to enact T162235 which will involve changing CSS on a number of Wikis. I'd like to do this manually and not with a bot so that I can confirm the change works after each modification.
