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 helper and 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 {{subst:u|{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}}} ===
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!-- don't change this line -->
 |domain    = global <!-- don't change this line -->
 |user name = {{subst:REVISIONUSER}} <!-- don't change this line unless you're nominating another user -->
}}
::''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.

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

 |user name = {{subst:REVISIONUSER}} <!-- don't change this line unless you're nominating another user -->
}}
:''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.

Requests for global rename 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.

 |user name = {{subst:REVISIONUSER}} <!-- don't change this line unless you're nominating another user -->
}}
:''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). While all input is welcome, there is a hard 80% support requirement for this role as per the global renamer policy.

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. You may request Global IP block exemption via stewards(_AT_)wikimedia.org if you can not edit this page.

Global IP block exempt for Khánh Snake[edit]

I'm proposing this because it's always affected by global IP blocking while being productive contributing to Wikipedia Vietnamese and Wikimedia Commons, thanks, --Khánh Snake (talk) 03:49, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(Non-steward comment) @Khánh Snake: Bạn có thể cho biết vì sao bạn lại bị ảnh hưởng bởi lệnh cấm toàn cục (có thể cho biết thông tin về dải IP bị cấm và lý do cấm, tên của tiếp viên đã cấm, v.v). Hoặc nếu bạn cần sử dụng VPN/Proxy/Tor, bạn có thể cho biết vì sao cần sử dụng nó được không? Bạn cứ thoải mái trả lời bằng tiếng Anh hoặc tiếng Việt, tôi sẽ hỗ trợ bạn trong việc phiên dịch. – Tryvix t 12:12, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Tryvix1509 Bạn là Bảo quản viên à mà lại đi hỏi vậy? Khánh Snake (talk) 12:18, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Khánh Snake: Tôi không phải bảo quản viên hay tiếp viên, nhưng khi bạn yêu cầu cấp cờ này với lý do chưa rõ ràng như vậy thì tiếp viên cũng sẽ hỏi bạn như vậy. Tryvix t 12:27, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Tryvix1509 Tôi bị chặn dải ip từ bảo quản viên Wikipedia Vietnamses Thành viên:Nguyentrongphu Khánh Snake (talk) 12:33, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Khánh Snake: Nếu bạn bị ảnh hưởng bởi lệnh cấm IP trên Wikipedia tiếng Việt, hãy nhắn trên chính trang thảo luận của bạn ở Wikipedia tiếng Việt và tag BQV Nguyentrongphu hoặc Plantaest. Cờ miễn cấm IP toàn cục sẽ không có khả năng giúp bạn bỏ qua lệnh cấm IP địa phương (tức trên 1 dự án) và vì thế, nó không thể giúp bạn. – Tryvix t 12:37, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Tryvix1509 Tôi cần sử dụng VPN/Proxy/Tor vì nhiều bài Trung Quốc và các web nước ngoài bị chặn ip từ các nước khác Khánh Snake (talk) 12:41, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Khánh Snake: Liệu còn ảnh hưởng gì khác khi truy cập Wikimedia không (ví dụ như bị cấm truy cập)? – Tryvix t 14:01, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Tryvix1509 Tôi là tuần tra viên thì sao bị cấm được. Khánh Snake (talk) 14:48, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

┌──────────────────────────┘
@Khánh Snake: Nếu như bạn dùng VPN chỉ để truy cập các trang web bị chặn, không phải Wikipedia thì lý do đó không được chấp nhận. – Tryvix t 14:50, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Tryvix1509Thế tôi hỏi bạn xin quyền Miễn cấm ip làm gì? Khánh Snake (talk) 14:52, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Khánh Snake: Cờ miễn cấm IP rất nhạy cảm, nếu cấp nhầm cho rối thì người cấp (tiếp viên) phải chịu trách nhiệm. Bạn cần xem qua quy định không proxy mởcờ miễn cấm toàn cục. – Tryvix t 15:03, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Tryvix1509 Thế bạn nghĩ tôi là rối à Khánh Snake (talk) 16:04, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Khánh Snake: no one think you are a sockpuppet. 123.24.142.196 04:44, 3 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Khánh Snake: Tôi không bảo bạn là rối, và mọi lời nói của tôi đều có sự thiện ý. Nếu như bạn cho rằng tôi đang làm khó bạn, tôi sẽ dừng thảo luận tại đây. Stewards: I think the discussion is done. Tryvix t 12:06, 3 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Không sao bạn cảm ơn bạn đã trả lời những thứ tôi không biết Khánh Snake (talk) 12:08, 3 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

System administrator for TheresNoTime[edit]

Per policy, I have the requisite shell access and sometimes require elevated on-wiki access during deployments — this is often served by my steward permissions, but I would prefer explicit compartmentalisation of my roles & access. I will now email T&S as required — TheresNoTime (talk • they/them) 14:45, 31 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Time2wait.svg On hold then until WMF approval. Just a question though, is your personal account the one to be flagged, or the -WMF one? Thanks, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 15:37, 31 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
For clarity, this request is for my volunteer account — the deployment/shell access I have isn't related to my work 😌 — TheresNoTime (talk • they/them) 17:45, 31 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

CAPTCHA exemption for MathXplore[edit]

I would like to request CAPTCHA exemption so I can use SWviewer and TwinkleGlobal without being stopped by CAPTCHA. For example, when I want to revert unexplained content removals, sometimes my reverts get stopped by CAPTCHA when there is an external link (or an external link template) in the content that I want to restore. I already learned that being "clear that the user has no spamming intention and is not a spambot" is an accepted rationale and I think my global contributions can prove this, thank you. MathXplore (talk) 06:38, 3 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@MathXplore: You may consider request for global rollback if you wish. Tryvix t 12:10, 3 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm not sure if my current cross activity level meets the GR requirements, so I will make that request when ready enough, thank you. MathXplore (talk) 16:40, 3 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
FWIW I would support a GR nomination. ~~~~

@MathXplore: higher than me. Tryvix t 02:53, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Have you tried to use User:Krinkle/Tools/Global SUL? --Ameisenigel (talk) 14:36, 3 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Actually I didn't know that, thank you for letting me know about it. MathXplore (talk) 16:42, 3 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I wish that script still worked :D — xaosflux Talk 17:11, 3 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Idk but if I use the script for this account, it work. But for my alt, it doesn't work (tested on Microsoft Edge, I will try again on Chrome). Tryvix t 02:51, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I used the script, and number of atttached accounts increased from 340 to 770+, so I think its still working (tested at Microsoft Edge). MathXplore (talk) 09:08, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@MathXplore it's a bit hit or miss, I put in a wishlist item that is likely to be picked up to either improve that script or replace it. Almost all local projects have time-only autocofirm, so by running that and waiting a little bit the CAPTCHA problem should go away. — xaosflux Talk 10:29, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The presented use case makes sense to me; I'll probably approve this within a day or two if there are no objections in that time. Martin Urbanec (talk) 14:44, 3 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes check.svg Done per the above. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 11:36, 5 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
