Global rollback for علاء[edit]

Not ending before 26 June 2017 16:30 UTC

Hello, I'm a member of SWMT and I'm active in the fight against vandalism. I have experience both in the fight against vandalism in the use of the rollback permission. Sometime I wanna eliminate vandalism in some wikis that I don't have a rollback permission on it so I have to undo multiple changes that are made by the same user but with the flag of Global Rollback could undo all the changes that user has done at once, also notice (Sub-reason) that there is no Global rollback who are Arabic native language that can deal easily with fight vandalism in Ar. projects and other nearby languages. --Alaa :)..! 16:41, 21 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Support Support Very trusted user in many wikis and with great experience. It is rolbacker in some wikis and knows how to use the rolback function at best. Also, it is an OTRS user and a global rename, and in addition all this demonstrates great reliability and competence in the functions it carries out. --Samuele2002 (Talk!) 17:30, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support trusted user.--Infinite0694 (Talk) 18:24, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support --Kolega2357 (talk) 23:04, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support Knowledge of the Arabic language can be a great advantage to combat vandalism in projects of this language. —Alvaro Molina ( - ) 00:38, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support Per Alvaro Molina. --Holder (talk) 04:57, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose After a random check of wikis the user has edited, I cannot find any vandal reverts in languages the user does not speak. Most of the crosswiki contributions are from global name or file replace. --Rschen7754 05:49, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
@Rschen7754: I think vandal reverts in Arabic language (& other nearby language) is enough previously, specially if you notice that there's no active good users in it (almost 0 or 1 per month), notice also there's no permissions in this small wikis. finally notice that I can request temporary sysop for these wikis but I know that I wanna help in fight against vandalism not in sysop filed. (Remind fight against vandalism in content not just related to use Rollback button, some time I accept edits and remove the vandal contents). Thanks --Alaa :)..! 06:00, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
The problem is that global rollback is truly global and gives you rights on all wikis. Candidates need to demonstrate that they are able to revert vandalism in a wide variety of languages, or they will be given rights that they cannot properly use. --Rschen7754 06:11, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
@Rschen7754: Thanks for you replay, I don't think it's a problem if the user know how and where to use it, and I repeat that I wanna you to think the load of vandalism that we've in ar.wiki projects (and as you know all ar. users work in ar.wikipedia and other ar.projects became suitable place for vandals), and please don't think that I'm a hat collecting user! I ask for any permission if I wanna use it properly, because of this I mentioned to you that I can request temporary sysop for these wikis but I know that I wanna help in fight against vandalism not in sysop filed. Regrades --Alaa :)..! 06:26, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose for now, there's not enough activity for my liking. eurodyne (talk) 06:03, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Neutral, Rschen7754's comment concerns me. I would like to see you more active in reverts across many wikis, and I should reconsider in the future. Activity in reverts on many wikis is required for this right. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 10:55, 22 June 2017 (UTC).
  • Support Support, looks decent with me. MechQuester (talk) 16:17, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Neutral Neutral, I trust him, but I can't support per Rschen7754, most of his edits are just renames, and I haven't seen him actively reverting vandalism. Stryn (talk) 21:16, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Global sysop for Samuele2002[edit]

Not ending before July 6 2017 15h04 UTC

I am global rolback and I'm very active in SWMT activities.I request for the Global Sysop flag for administrator actions on wikis without administrators or inactive administrators to defend these wikis from vandalisms. Very often I happen to put the Delete template on many pages (for various reasons: no sense, spam test ...) but I can not delete the pages directly.I know the tasks and functions of an admin very well because I'm administrator in various projects (it.wikiversity beta.wikiversity outreach Wikimania2017 ia.Wikibooks ia.wiktionary chr.wiktionary test and test2 wikipedia and test.wikidata). Thank you --Samuele2002 (Talk!) 15:04, 21 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Support Pro --Holder (talk) 04:56, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support Good activity. --Rschen7754 05:51, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
    • In response to some of the points below, if it was 10 large or medium-sized production wikis I would be more concerned, but only half are content wikis. Arguably, some of the temporary sysop functions could be replaced by GS (I know some folks won't be happy with me saying that, and I know that global sysops are told to tread carefully, but it is generally accepted that GS rights can be used for cleanup purposes. That all being said, MarcoAurelio does have some points worth considering. --Rschen7754 07:11, 23 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support no issues eurodyne (talk) 06:04, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Support, very good. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 10:26, 22 June 2017 (UTC).
  • Support Support I would say he can be trusted . MechQuester (talk) 16:17, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Comment. I am a bit concerned to be sincere. You currently hold adminship on 10 wikis, some of them on temporary basis, as you mention in your statement. Basically I share the feelings that Vituzzu pointed at you less than a month ago. This is not saying that you're doing bad out there, but accumulating statuses on several projects leads to quick burnout if not managed properly. If that happens it is likely that the burned out editor quits and an inactive user is like having no user at all. That said, I applaud your willingness to help global sysop wikis, though; but you should ask yourself if you can really handle them all and reply yourself with sincerity. If you've got the time and dedication to do it then 'thanks' for taking care of them, if not, it'll be wise not to further increase your responsabilities and take care of what you already do. Just a friendly advice. Regards, —MarcoAurelio 19:13, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
