Requests and proposals Steward requests (Global permissions) latest archive
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 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 (other than requests that are unlikely to pass under any circumstances, no other 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 Iluvatar[edit]

Not ending before 2 November 2019 01:41 UTC

Hello. I’m in Wikimedia Movement since 2008. I have a technical right to delete pages in ruwiki, 5.5 years i'm a global rollbacker. My favorite activity is fight against vandalism/spam. Unfortunately, there is not always enough time, but now I am relatively free.

I believe a GS should be just a technical flag. The GS shouldn't be analogous to a local flag. The GS shouldn't block experienced conflicted users, shouldn't try to reconcile users, shouldn't act as a mediator or make decisions in non-obvious discussions. In my opinion, it is a flag only for more effective counteraction to vandalism, realization obvious technical requests from a local community and response to requests for help.

I'm developing software for SWMT to fight vandalism. 2FA is enabled.—Iluvatar (talk) 01:41, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Requests for global IP block exemption[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. Please review Global IP block exemption.
Please note: Global IP block exemption does NOT make one immune to locally-created blocks of any sort, only global blocks.
Instructions for making a request

Before requesting global IP block exemption, make sure that:

  1. You have a global account;
  2. You are logged in on this wiki, and the account is part of your global account;
To request global IP block exemption
Copy the template below to the bottom of this section and explain why you need the access and why you're suitable. If needed, link to relevant discussions.
=== Global IP block exempt for [[User:Foo|Foo]] ===

 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    = global<!--don't change this line-->

<Add an explanation here>, thanks, --~~~~

The request will be approved if there is demonstrated need for the permission, such as bypassing a global block from someone who is not the intended target.

Global IP block exempt for Daclements[edit]

I've been an occasional contributor for many years on Wikipedia, but lately owing to my use of VPNs, I have found myself in blocked IP ranges. I kindly request that I be made exempt from these restrictions. I invite you to view my very benign and helpful edits, thanks, --Daclements (talk) 19:39, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

You are more likely in need of a local IP block exemption in English Wikipedia. Ruslik (talk) 19:52, 5 October 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for MartialLEAVES[edit]

Per user request in zh-wikipedia Telegram Group, thanks. --Streetdeck Talk) 09:23, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

I have not seen this user have a more active cross-wiki editing. Catherine Laurence (discussion) 09:34, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

@Catherine Laurence: I don't think that cross-wiki activities are essential especially when the requesting user is in China and is blocked for using WMF without VPNs. Znotch190711 (talk) 04:33, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
@Znotch190711: They can bypass the global ban by requesting for a local ipbe. I don't think it's worth giving gipbe to users who don't have a lot of cross wiki activities, especially those with very few editors. --Catherine Laurence (discussion) 04:40, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
@Catherine Laurence: All right, but does zhwiki have a clear IPBE rule? Znotch190711 (talk) 04:41, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
You can see w:zh:WP:IPBE. Catherine Laurence (discussion) 04:45, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Clear enough, I understand Chinese, thanks. Znotch190711 (talk) 11:43, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for IP Range of WikiLoop Battlefield[edit]

I am a developer, and we are building a counter-vandalism tool called WikiLoop Battlefield, and here is its source code. We recently start to roll out Oauth login and in-place revert feature. When we move our test from localhost to our dev and canary(staging) environment, we noticed that we received the following error.

{ "error": { "code": "globalblocking-ipblocked-range", "info": "'''Your IP address is in a range which has been blocked on all wikis.''' The block was made by [//meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Jon_Kolbert Jon Kolbert] (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is ''[[NOP|Open Proxy]]: Webhost: Contact [[m:Special:Contact/stewards|stewards]] if you are affected ''. * Start of block: 2019-07-23T12:01:56 * Expiration of block: 2021-01-23T11:01:56 You can contact [//meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Jon_Kolbert Jon Kolbert] to discuss the block. You cannot use the \"Email this user\" feature unless a valid email address is specified in your [[Special:Preferences|account preferences]] and you have not been blocked from using it. Your current IP address is 3.86.232.24, and the blocked range is 3.86.0.0/16. Please include all above details in any queries you make.", "*": "See https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php for API usage. Subscribe to the mediawiki-api-announce mailing list at <https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/mediawiki-api-announce> for notice of API deprecations and breaking changes." }, "servedby": "mw1346" }

We host our server on Heroku, does it mean that the IP address of heroku is being blocked globally for MediaWiki API? Can we apply to be whitelisted for our legit use-case?

Thank you!

Xinbenlv (talk)

@Xinbenlv: Heroku is a shared host, and Wikimedia discourages hosting service in third-party shared hosts (it may host VPN or reverse proxy, which can hide users' IP address). You should either:
  • Move the project to Toolforge (recommended) or Cloud VPS
  • Create a edit service in Toolforge similar to toollabs:widar, and invoke the service (you must use GET or JSONP, Cloud does not support POST from third-party service) in the project (not recommended, this may have security issues)

--GZWDer (talk) 18:41, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

@GZWDer: thank you.
First sorry I just noticed I didn't use the template (which doesn't apply to IP range extemption for al IPs), I updated it.
Second, here we are building an app that requires a user to login with Oauth. We only conduct edit on-behalf of loged-in users and their username will show up.
3rdly, with respect to your suggestion, We've considered porting the project to Toolforge but we are waiting for the Toolforge to support modern Kubernates https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T214513.
It is not particularly feasible for all users to rely on IP addresses because as many of people who submit for permissions here, IP addresses are only largely available in USA and a few developed countries who took part in early Internet infrastructure development discussions. Many other countries they have to rely on NAT that shares limited IP addresses. Our app hope to expand to all language locales to help users with counter-vandalism efforts. If we block IP addresses, it will reduce the access of these users from Non-USA/developed countries who would like to help.
In summary, can we apply for unblocking any IP addresses if we have allowed users to identify themselves with login? Thank you!

Global IP block exempt for Joalbertine[edit]

I use VPN on my personal laptop as a standard security measure and regularly contribute on Wikimedia Commons, Hebrew Wikipedia and Hebrew Wikisource. It would be very helpful to be exempt from IP blocks, thanks, --Joalbertine (talk) 11:43, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Xinbenlv[edit]

Hi I am a good standing editor who has been editing cross-wikis and and fighting vandalism. And I am also a developer and building a counter-vandalism webapp as requested above. I made a Global IP Exempt Request for the app WikiLoop Battlefield above but I guess that will take more time to discuss. I also travel to China very often so constantly behind VPNs myself. I'd like to apply for global IP exempt for my own account.
