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.

Global rollback and global interface editor requests require no fewer than 5 days of discussion while abuse filter maintainer requests require no fewer than 7 days. Global renamer and global sysop requests require no fewer than 2 weeks of discussion. 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: You have sufficient activity to meet the requirements to be allocated the global rollback flag

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 rollback for NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh[edit]

Not ending before 8 December 2021 10:08 UTC
  • About me: Hi. Recently I've been interested in crosswiki patrolling using SWViewer. See my crossactivity here and, if you have editcountitis, my SUL here. I am obsessed with and using a lot of Javascript tools (despite knowing hardly nothing about JS), but they can't completely replace rollback, especially when I need to mass-revert some vandal's edits. Therefore, I request for GR permissions.
  • Language: Vietnamese is my first language. I'm quite good at reading English, but not really confident in speaking/writing. I can also read basic (Classical) Chinese (Hán tự/Hànzì/Kanji/Hanja). In short: vi, en-4 (reading), en-2.5 (speaking/writing), zh/lzh-0.5 (reading).

Regards, NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 10:08, 3 December 2021 (UTC)

  • I know NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh well and they're a well trusted user. However, the large number of rights requested on Commons recently gave both Davey2010 and myself the concern of hatcollecting. In this case, I'm sure NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh doesn't have that intent, but I'd like to hear the opinion of others before voting. --SHB2000 (talk | contribs) 10:55, 3 December 2021 (UTC)
  • My thoughts are the same as SHBs - Having looked at their contribs they've made reverts to different projects but I feel like they've only made those reverts for the sake of coming here, Again I also have a strong sense of HATCOLLECTING here however Given I don't know the user and don't edit here it would be unfair to immediately Oppose so wanted to see what others thought before !voting, Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 11:39, 3 December 2021 (UTC)
  • GA candidate.svg Weak support trusted user but cross-wiki activity is too low --Mtarch11 (talk) 07:23, 4 December 2021 (UTC)

    @Guxiangli Tongguan Why? Do note that this is not a vote. Some opinions of why you weakly support will be very helpful to rest of us. Thanks. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:28, 4 December 2021 (UTC)
  • I have checked some edits in bnwiki, although revert's looking good to me except this. I putup my opinion as GA candidate.svg Weak support based on too low crosswiki activity and concerns about hatcollecting -- MdsShakil (talk) 17:45, 5 December 2021 (UTC)
  • First of all, I came across crosswiki actions, done by NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh quite often recently and my overall impression was good but, as always, I try to check some crosswiki actions in languages, I can understand and I have some concerns. First of all user got a warning from admin in slwiki for reverting good faith edits. Secondly, I found this, this and this edits that surely were not vandalism of some sort. Also I see that there was some confusion in this page in bgwiki, which is understandable, because you have no command of Slavic languages, but what's a point of patrolling them then? Based on everything above that's BA candidate.svg Weak oppose from me, because generally I see good potential but NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh needs to gain more experience and make conclusions.--Renvoy (talk) 09:16, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

Global rollback for Femkemilene[edit]

Not ending before 11 December 2021 16:07 UTC
  • About me: I started a cross-wiki review of climate disinformation and misinformation. We try to delete blatant misinformation and work together with the local communities / native speakers to improve less problematic text. Unsurprisingly, some climate change articles are semi-protected. I was wondering if I could get the global rollback right, as it includes autoconfirmed. I'm willing to promise that I will not use the rollback function. I think this project can be done in three months, so happy to have this right only for a limited time. Thanks
  • Languages: nl-5, en-5, de-2.5, fr-3, es-2.5 and a few between 0-1. Femkemilene (talk) 16:07, 6 December 2021 (UTC)
  • Symbol strong support vote.svg Strong support I trust this user in this role: active on the Dutch Wikipedia for 5+ years, and positive contributions on nl-Gendergap related articles. Ciell (talk) 16:36, 6 December 2021 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose BA candidate.svg Weak oppose cross wiki activity is too low. —Yahya (talkcontribs.) 20:17, 6 December 2021 (UTC)
    @Yahya: This request was made to circumvent local autoconfirmed restrictions by using the autopatrol autoconfirmed user right, as such, this has nothing to do with cross-wiki activity. --Minorax«¦talk¦» 13:00, 7 December 2021 (UTC)
  • This appears to be outside the scope of the global rollback permission. Optimally you should obtain autoconfirmed through local processes, usually just being registered for a few days. It is also generally a bad idea to edit content in an unfamiliar language, and I would recommend you prioritize working with local editors and native speakers over making removals yourself. Best, Vermont (talk) 21:36, 6 December 2021 (UTC)
    • Tools maybe usefull. Stang 22:28, 6 December 2021 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg Strong oppose Oppose Oppose Not only, as rightfully said by Vermont, this is "outside the scope of the global rollback permission" but even if you gain GR permission it does not guarantee you autopatrol rights in every and each wiki, because many of them do not use autopatrol, but autoreview feature instead. So, for example, after obtaining global rollback flag you still would not be autopatrolled in Hungarian, Belorussian, Bosnian, Arabic, Hindi and Farsi wikis (based on your list).--Renvoy (talk) 10:06, 7 December 2021 (UTC)
    This is requesting the ability to edit semi-protected pages, which is truly granted everywhere by being a global rollbacker, not the ability to have one's edits escape review. * Pppery * it has begun 15:33, 7 December 2021 (UTC)
    ok, I got confused by Minorax's comment.--Renvoy (talk) 16:14, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

Requests for global sysop 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 sysops policy.
Stewards
When you give someone global sysop rights, please list them on Users with global sysop access and ask them to subscribe to the global sysops mailing list.
Instructions for making a request

Before requesting, 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 make a request

 |domain    = global <!-- don't change this line -->
 |user name = Username
}}
:''Not ending before {{subst:#time:j F Y H:i|+2 week}} UTC''

The request will be approved if consensus to do so exists after a period of consideration of no less than two weeks (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. Please note: Since 2019 all global sysops are required to have two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled.

Global IP block exempt for Masterchief006[edit]

Hello guys. I am currently living in China's mainland, so I have to access Wikipedia via a VPN. I am a great fan of Formula one, which does not have the elaborate simplified Chinese translation. So, I hope I can make some contributions to that part. I hope I can get exempted by you guys. As I am currently living in China, my IP has to be concealed to visit the wiki. Hope you guys can understand, thanks, --Masterchief006

Global confirmed for Femkemilene[edit]

I started a cross-wiki review of climate disinformation and misinformation. We try to delete blatant misinformation and work together with the local communities / native speakers to improve less problematic text. Unsurprisingly, some climate change articles are semi-protected. I was wondering if I could be globally confirmed. Thanks, --Femkemilene (talk) 08:09, 6 December 2021 (UTC)

We don't have a global userright for this, and to go and set it on all wikis would be an undertaking and a half. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 12:27, 6 December 2021 (UTC)
I feared as much. I don't do much anti-vandel work, but I was wondering if I could invoke IAR, and request the global rollback right, which includes autoconfirmed? I'll ask in appropriate section. Femkemilene (talk) 15:57, 6 December 2021 (UTC)
