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 Dragoniez[edit]

Not ending before 26 January 2022 09:26 UTC

I would like to request a global rollback flag. I'm extended confirmed on jawiki and enwiki, and granted a rollback flag on jawiki. I regret to mention that there are a lot of cross-wiki LTAs from the Japanese Wikipedia, e.g. ja:LTA:HEATHROW and ja:LTA:SLIME, and I often check their edits across wikis in reporting their sockpuppets on jawiki (and on other wikis as well). A global rollback flag would make it much easier for me to deal with their vandal edits and allow me to contribute to the community more. For example, SLIME's edits often involve personal attacks (e.g. en:Special:diff/1063297785, a vandal edit on the talk page of Nnh, a jawiki sysop), and HEATHROW even vandalized a Steward's talk page (see simple:Special:diff/7969440) the other day. I'm hoping to ease admins' and Stewards' burdens of dealing with such disruptive edits by my reverting them and reporting the relevant accounts for block/lock, so that users with block rights will only need to consider blocking them or that they won't need to spend energy reverting problematic/offensive edits (especially those on their user pages, which are subject to much more vandalism than a general user's page). Finally, rollback makes it possible to deal with problematic edits much faster than the normal revert, but I carefully consider if a given edit needs to be reverted, as I always do. Thank you for your consideration in advance! --Dragoniez (talk) 09:26, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Oppose Oppose not enough cross-wiki experience. Hulged (talk) 09:33, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose Oppose - unfortunately, I agree with Hulged. Your motivation for requesting the flag is certainly noble, but for now, I don't feel you have the experience required to be entrusted with the flag (as it does more than just give you rollback permissions and is for all wikis). You could perhaps look to use some tool like TwinkleGlobal or SWViewer to assist with the rollbacking? I would recommend to get some more cross-wiki experience and perhaps try again in a couple of months, when you have more cross-wiki experience. --Daniuu (talk) 09:43, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Oppose Oppose not enough cross-wiki experience. -- MdsShakil (talk) 10:30, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose Not yet per others and x-wiki experience too low. --SHB2000 (talk | contribs) 10:41, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose Not yet, not enough cross-wiki experience. DARIO SEVERI (talk) 11:07, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose Oppose per above. --20041027 𝓽𝓪𝓽𝓼𝓾talk) 13:28, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Comment Comment Thank you all for your votes and comments. It was obviously too early to make the request, so I think I'll come back again when I've got a bit more cross-wiki experience. Once again, I appreciate all your comments despite the hasty nature of the request! --Dragoniez (talk) 13:49, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Request withdrawn per above --Alaa :)..! 13:54, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Abuse filter helper for Daniuu (extension)[edit]

Not ending before 27 January 2022 17:25 UTC

Some six months ago, I requested the global abuse filter permission to assist with the handling of the anti-spam abuse filters and to further assist vandalism. The permission was then granted for six months. As the permission was granted for six months about six months ago, I would like to request an extension of this permission. While holding the permission, I assisted in the patrolling of the anti-spam filters, used the abuse log entries to frustrate LTAs and developed some new filters on the Dutch Wikipedia to better fight spam (especially the shopping and gambling ones) and would like to continue this work in the future. I am, as always, looking forward to receiving your feedback on this request. --Daniuu (talk) 17:24, 20 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
