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.

Requests for global sysop permissions[edit]

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.

  2. You are logged in on this wiki, and the account is part of your global account;

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.

Global IP block exempt for 意识雪[edit]

I live in China and need to use VPN to edit.I had IPBE in zhwiki and need GIPBE now--意识雪 (talk) 15:08, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Chinen Sieru [edit]

I am a user from Mainland China. Because of the goverment policy, I have to use VPN to access Wikipedia(zh and zh-yue). I have already edited something article. But I can't do it anymore since you have blocked the IP of my VPN. So I am applying for the global IP block exemption. Your early answer will be appreciated. Thank you. --Chinen Sieru (talk) 09:03, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

  • I can see you are not granted IPBE at zhwiki, please advise whether you need that or not since GIPBE cannot bypass local block.--Hamish 15:32, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
    • Yes. Because I need GIPBE to edit zh-yue wiki. --Chinen Sieru (talk) 16:04, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for K.K.Serbia[edit]

I am living in Mainland China and I am using VPN to browse and edit Wikipedia. But I got my IP blocked, so I'm requesting GIPBE here. Thanks for the help. --K.K.Serbia (talk) 03:50, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

K.K.Serbia, do you plan to edit zhwiki only or other Wikipedias and Wikimedia projects as well? --Base (talk) 23:18, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
So far I plan to edit zhwiki only. --K.K.Serbia(talk) 03:04, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Kevinalewis[edit]

After years of creative editing I now find I can't edit Wikipedia - completely out of the Blue, thanks, --Kevinalewis (talk) 13:52, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Kevinalewis, do I understand correctly that you are using an IP that Jon Kolbert has blocked and it is a free VPN you have to use due to some circumstances? I see no reason not to fulfil your request though once this is clear. --Base (talk) 22:44, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
So are you are saying this should not be an issue and you are able to let me through from this IP range? Kevinalewis (talk) 08:10, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Global rename for SimmeD[edit]

Not ending before 24 September 2019 07:29 UTC

Hello, my name is SimmeD. I'm an active sysop on Danish Wikipedia. I'm a former OTRS-volunteer for the Danish queue. As of right now we do not have any GR that have danish as native language, and I would like to be able to help with name changes for our Danish speaking wiki's. I'm able to speak Danish, English, Swedish, Norwegian and a small amount of German. I'm a semi active user since I have my study, but just because I'm not editing doesn't mean I'm inactive. I'm active at IRC, and perform administrative tasks on the wiki's I'm sysop on. Then I also just time on Commons as a file-mover. But all in all, it would be great to have a Danish speaking GR. Fell free to ask any questions if there are something you guys are need to know about me or my work (or any question in general). --SimmeD (talk) 07:29, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Support Support. Looks okay to me. Sounds good to have a Danish-speaking GR. Hiàn (talk) 21:41, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Global rename for Track13[edit]

Not ending before 3 October 2019 15:15 UTC

Hello everyone, I'm Track13. I'm mostly active on Russian Wikipedia, where I'm an active sysop and bureaucrat. There is no significant delay on ru:ВП:ПУЗ queue now, however, the majority of requests are handled by one renamer and I'd be happy to help. Also, I will be able to handle local requests on Belarusian wikis (be and be-tarask) if local communities want that. I've reviewed and understood the Global rename policy. Thank you for your time and comments. Track13 0_o 15:15, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Support Support. Freshly elected bureaucrat on ru-wiki where we currently have only three global renamers, not all of them being continuously active. The help from Track13 would be highly appreciated. — Adavyd (talk) 23:14, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Support Support I see no issues. Plus sysop + crat on ruwiki. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:32, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Support SupportAmmarpad (talk) 04:55, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Support Support per Adavyd. Another global renaming in ru-wiki will not be superfluous.--Vladimir Solovjev (talk) 05:02, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Support Support sysop and crapt on major language Wikipedia. Should be granted as a matter of course. TonyBallioni (talk) 05:23, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
    sysop and crap... that was a bit insulting =) Track13 0_o 09:17, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Support Support--UltimoGrimm (talk) 08:29, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Support Support. Looks reasonable. Hiàn (talk) 02:39, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Support Support - Thought I already supported; seems I didn't save the edit. I had a few sentences that I thought were quite nice, so just pretend there's a few nice sentences here. I see no reason why Track13 with global rename permissions would be problematic, and many reasons why it'd be beneficial. Thanks for volunteering, Vermont (talk) 02:42, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Support Support Not seeing any problems here. Bureaucrat on Russian Wikipedia, a fourth Russian global renamer would be good. EPIC (talk) 06:54, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

New wiki importers for Jon Harald Søby[edit]

I'd like to join the New wiki importers group to help out with importing new wikis when they're created. I have experience importing XML files, including editing the XML files with regex to remove prefixes and other oddities. I have previously imported the Neapolitan Wikisource, the Txikipedia content on the Basque Wikipedia from Vikidia, and at least one more wiki that I can't remember (that was quite a few years back).
