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

::''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 (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 L293D[edit]

I've been on Wikimedia with a global account for nearly a year and I am a proficient vandal-fighter on en.wiki. More recently, though, I have found myself reverting WhenDatHotlineBling vandalism across wikidictionary, wikibooks, and meta, so GR would be useful to me L293D ( • ) 15:34, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Oppose Oppose Per Global rollback "users must be demonstrably active in cross-wiki countervandalism or anti-spam activities and make heavy use of revert on many wikis", so 21,375 edits not enough (20,957 in enwiki, 210 commons, 62 frwiki, 49 wikidata, so less than 200 edits in other projects).

Global rename for GeneralizationsAreBad[edit]

Not ending before 24 October 2018 22:15 UTC
As an enwiki admin who works extensively in administrative areas - particularly (un)blocking - I have repeatedly encountered users waiting on username changes. With the global renamer rights, I would help reduce the rename backlogs and contribute to a speedier block review process, easing the burden on other global renamers. Moreover, I've started thinking about branching out into new areas, such as renaming work on Metawiki, etc., and this right would facilitate that. Thank you very much for your time and consideration. GABgab 22:15, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support: GeneralizationsAreBad is trusted on EN.WIKI, they are active in the local block log, and if they can use centralauth-rename to the benefit of the project, I see no reason not to support their request. Sam Sailor 12:28, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support: Another trustworthy candidate. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 14:51, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
  • GA candidate.svg Weak support: Only recently returned to activity after five months hiatus, minimal cross wiki activity. Supporting based on their existing quality work and demonstrated need. Alex Shih (talk) 22:08, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support - TNT 💖 22:09, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support - Their crossactivity is nonexistent, but I recognize the benefit of having the ability to rename users especially when one is commonly involved in the process of dealing with those who are submitting requests to change their username. GAB, being active in this area and frequently happening upon such users in this category, would be an asset to the project and could help reduce rename backlogs. Vermont (talk) 00:44, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per every other time an enwiki admin came over here requesting this right. Nihlus 00:54, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support GAB is one of the best Wikimedians around. He has my full trust and confidence. Opposes and weaknesses are unconvincing. Global renamers on local projects is a good thing so long as the user themselves has experience with some of the more complicated workings of a major project. GAB does. He'd be an asset, and honestly I could see him as a steward one day, even with the xwiki weaknesses: there are stewards who were elected without much activity outside their home wiki. I see no reason to appoint a trusted member of a large project a renamer when it would be helpful to them and our global community. Strong support. TonyBallioni (talk) 01:27, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support trusted user with acceptable reason, so why not?! --Alaa :)..! 21:00, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support L293D ( • ) 13:05, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support because Generalizations (about en.wiki admins) Are Bad. --Rschen7754 21:43, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Global rename for Oshwah[edit]

Not ending before 2 November 2018 05:42 UTC
As a user who watches and patrols the new user log (among many other logs) and responds to unblock requests that pop up on a live feed on the English Wikipedia, I frequently run into accounts that are in violation of Wikipedia's username policy that are requesting an unblock and with a new username that complies with the policy. There have been a handful of times where the user simply gave up and walked away after waiting for their unblock request and account rename to be handled. That's disappointing for me to see happen; we just lost a potential editor and good contributor to the project because they didn't know about the username policy, and they were already feeling that they were put into waiting line and treated like an "offender of policy" - and (in many cases) they haven't even edited anything yet. Having the global rename permissions would allow me to assist these users right away and get them back on track and able to contribute to the project. As someone who frequently offers assistance to new and novice editors and helps them to get started, make good decisions, and get themselves back on track after having a rough start on Wikipedia - I feel that being able to rename accounts will give me the ability to provide an extra level of personal assistance, as well as defuse any frustrations and get them out of the "unblock request waiting" line and back to feeling that positive motivation to contribute to the project. I'm here to request the global rename permissions, as having them would give me the tool needed in being able to assist users in these situations. I'm an admin on the ACC tool project, I know Wikipedia's username policy extremely well, and will use the rights responsibly. If anybody has any questions or concerns, please let me know and I'll be happy to respond. Thank you :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 05:42, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
