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

Global sysop for Shriheeran[edit]

Not ending before 2 January 2017 09:29 UTC

Hi! I am from Srilanka and I would like to be a global sysop and want to serve globally--Shriheeran (talk) 09:31, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Oppose. Blocked on hawiki for abusing multiple accounts. --Steinsplitter (talk) 13:18, 19 December 2016 (UTC)
  • I can see that you are quite young and you seem to still be growing. If you would like to attain these rights, I'd recommend you join the SWMT team and join the irc channel, #cvn-swm, to revert vandalism wiki-wide. These rights are for those that are in need of it. You don't seem to be showing any kind of need for the global sysop rights. Take the advice given by the users above (and me) in a good way and get active in the fight against vandalism (wiki-wide). --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 18:45, 19 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Per above comments. Alvaro Molina.png Alvaro Molina (Let's Talk) 02:00, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Hi Shriheeran, thanks for volunteering and helping :-). I think that this request won't pass, so I'd recommend to withdraw it for now. You are more than welcome to re-apply for GS once you are more active reverting vandalism/spam and tagging pages for deletion cross-wiki. If you have some doubt about something, please feel free to ask. Matiia (talk) 04:22, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Oppose Oppose - per this. I have earlier reported this user to Holder and Matiia for disruptive editing at yo:wiki. The indef block at ha:wiki, the disruptive editing at yo:wiki and the request here is a clear indication that this user is WP:NOTHERE. I'll appreciate if any GS can block this user at yo:wiki to prevent further action there. Thank you. Wikicology (talk) 14:02, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
    Just out of curiosity, "WP:NOTHERE" means what? --Vogone (talk) 12:55, 30 December 2016 (UTC)
    Is a term used on enwiki, mentioned here refers that the user (Shriheeran) is "cleary not here (on Yoruba Wikipedia) to contribute"; I suppose. I do not see that these term is used here on Meta. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 20:05, 30 December 2016 (UTC).
Yes, Ks-M9 is correct. I recognized that it's not a Meta-community term but most experienced users who edit at en:wiki are familiar with it. Wikicology (talk) 21:55, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done. Early closure because the request isn't succeeding based on the agreement between stewards that early closures of steward requests are acceptable when there's no gain for the candidate in keeping obviously-unsuccessful discussions running. —MarcoAurelio 15:36, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

Global sysop for Ladsgroup[edit]

Not ending before 14 January 2017 05:18 UTC

Hey, I've been admin in Persian Wikipedia for around eight years now, I'm also 'crat and member of supervisory committee (like ArbCom) there. Global renamer and also admin in Wikidata too. I need global sysop mostly to help other Persian Wikis. For example, recently I had to become admin temporarily in all other wikis to add several abuse filters to stop a vandal attacking Persian Wikipedia users in those wikis because those abuse filters was enough to stop him in Persian Wikipedia. I will also help out in any other case if there is the need. Amir (talk) 05:18, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Support Support No concerns. Alvaro Molina.png Alvaro Molina (Let's Talk) 05:31, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Support Support. Trusted user. --HakanIST (talk) 08:23, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose. This request falls outside the scope of the GS tool. GS is intended for users active cross-wiki within its scope, and not for active involvement on only a handful of projects without a local voting process or other form of approval. I suggest you request longer-term temporary adminship on the Persian wikis instead of requesting a right that gives you access to far more than necessary. Savhñ 09:54, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
    User:Savh: Thanks for the note but I must note that I tried it before (I was temp. admin for several months in almost all other Persian projects) but that wasn't enough and also I'm not saying I won't help out in other issues, I'm saying my main focus would be those wikis. Amir (talk) 10:01, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
    What exactly was "not enough"? As far as I am aware, local adminstrators do not have less permissions than global administrators. --Vogone (talk) 18:09, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
    By "not enough" I meant the time span not the rights. I requested for three months, I did some stuff and once the three months were done the rights got revoked. I'm kind tired and don't want to request for adminship every three months (or bigger time span for that matter) specially since they are not one or two projects. We have six other Persian projects beside Wikipedia. And I emphasize that it was the trigger not the only reason. I though "I can help GSs and do a lot more" Amir (talk) 05:52, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support. Trusted user. Wikicology (talk) 10:22, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Neutral, I'm not seeing that this request is in a scope of the tool. Mostly per Savh. I'm not opposed because you are a trusted user and you know how to use the tools, but the theme here is the scope of global sysop, that I'm not seeing. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 11:13, 31 December 2016 (UTC).
  • Support Support Definitely!--Arash (talk) 12:30, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Request sysopship on those persian wikis. EDIT I'd like to see more cross-wiki activity, this is not sufficient for my standards. --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 15:20, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
  • (edit conflict) I'd like to support because Ladsgroup is a nice and competent user. Savh is correct, however, that this request might fall a bit outside of the GS scope if some conditions ain't met. You should limit the activities to general and uncontroversial maintenance only as per policy and it'd be good if you could also help out on other projects as well. I see that you mention that you'd like to help out elsewhere too. Being focused on some projects is good, specially if you know the language. If you think you can limit your activities to general mopping there and on the rest of GS wikis then I have no problems with you joining the team. Thanks. —MarcoAurelio 15:32, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
    User:MarcoAurelio. I will definitely limit my activities, both in Persian Wikis and non-Persian ones, to what's mentioned in GS: "antivandalism and routine maintenance" Amir (talk) 01:30, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support good select for global wiki --AFlorence (talk) 22:15, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Support Support excellent.Trusted user.--Behzad39 (talk) 17:50, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support Good candidate. Seems reasonable so I have no reason to oppose. Reguyla (talk) 19:13, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support The best option, There is no reason to oppos--Sharaky Talk 19:42, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose This is not a valid reason for requesting GS. Similar requests have rightly been rejected in the past. Requesting a right for 700+ wikis when you only want to do stuff on 6 (and seemingly “more“ i.e. outside of the scope of GSes?) also disenfranchises the local communities. --MF-W 10:19, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
  • My thoughts largely mirror MarcoAurelio's. --Rschen7754 21:50, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support It's neccesary for Persian wikis and you are a good option. hoping to ascent. --Smorteza (talk) 05:36, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose as out of scope for GS. Please request adminship locally on each of those Wikis. -FASTILY 07:04, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose as out of scope for GS. The trust level of the requestor was never a factor to override lack of scope in previous GS requests. --Krd 08:01, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support Of course. Will improve their ability to collaborate across more languages. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 10:35, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Per MF-Warburg. If you want sysop access for the Persian Wikis that can be arranged through the proper channels. This request is out of scope for GS. We shouldn't be giving you keys to everything if you only need to open a few locks. --Majora (talk) 21:51, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Per MF-Warburg...we basically only have 3 GS who do work on mostly all smaller wikis instead of just looking after their own 'personal ones', we don't need more.--Stemoc 22:21, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

Even though I disagree with you about the scope (I wanted to be a global renamer to handle Persian requests mostly too but I ended up doing way more global requests than local ones). I respect people who opposed and withdraw my request. Amir (talk) 09:34, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

Closing as Request withdrawn--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 11:30, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

Global rename for DoRD[edit]

I am requesting Global rename permission mainly because I frequently patrol en:Category:Requests for unblock, and since I often find username change requests there, I could help to process those more efficiently. I am currently an administrator, CheckUser, and Oversighter on the English Wikipedia. —DoRD talk 18:47, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Support Support - Trusted user. BTW... DoRD is one of the few editors I respect a lot. All the best. Wikicology (talk) 19:47, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support As global rename becomes more and more mature, I think crosswiki activity becomes less of a concern (Let's not forget that my crosswiki activity was rather poor when I ran for the global rename tool). The biggest factor in selecting new global renamers should be trust, because global rename is a tool that can cause serious issues if misused. This user has CheckUser and Oversight on the English Wikipedia, which are not tools for toddlers to play with, and if they can be trusted not to use checkuser "Out of personal curiosity" or oversight their own embarrassing edits from eons ago, they can be trusted not to rename Jimbo Wales to some silly username. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 21:31, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose I agree with Steinsplitter. Limited cross wiki activity and frankly there are already quite a few people who do renames and they rarely sit long before they are done. Reguyla (talk) 00:35, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support. Users blocked on en.wiki for disallowed usernames are told to follow the procedure of requesting an unblock while specifying a new name they want to use, waiting for unblock, and then having to go and make the actual rename request somewhere else, with a warning that if they don't do it quickly they risk being blocked again. That is cumbersome and confusing, especially as it is usually newcomers who are hit by it (and to anyone not immersed in some of Wikipedia's arcane procedures which are often only there for historical or technical reasons, it can seem ludicrous). Having admins who can do the unblock and rename at the same time is a far superior approach, in my view - and it's got nothing to do with how many renamers there already are or how quickly the rename request queue is processed. Since I gained the renamer right, I have renamed/unblocked probably hundreds of 166 (rightly fearing optimism, I thought I'd better count) en.wiki users, making things simpler for them and making less work for those who process the unblock queue, and I honestly see no downside to that. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 13:59, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
Yes, you are right. While I have opposed users in the past on the basis of no enough cross-wiki activities, I believe there are some users that shouldn't be opposed on that basis especially those who are active here for example. Wikicology (talk) 16:47, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support. DoRD is trustworthy and already has sufficient experience as an advanced rights holder. He would easily put the mop to good use. RadiX 19:09, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Support Support Enwiki, being the biggest project and about 1/4th of the active userbase, has a corresponding larger need for such renames. As such, I'm not too concerned with global experience in these cases - as with any global renamers, I expect them to be active on their home projects first, and only expand to handling more general requests as they gain experience and feel comfortable doing so. As with this specific candidate, I have no concerns with them using rename permissions. Though not sure I'd call it a mop, RadiX ;-) – Ajraddatz (talk) 02:09, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Obvious Yes. --Kaulder (contribs | talk) 16:10, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
