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.

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;

}}

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).

Interface editor for Candalua[edit]

Interwiki links have all been added in Wikidata for Main page and Special:Recentchanges, but a lot of Wikisource projects didn't remove the local interwiki links. This is resulting in duplicated links being shown (example). I would like to fix this situation by removing the links where necessary. 1 week can be enough to perform the task. Thanks, --Candalua (talk) 16:39, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

  • IMO this should be done locally, and local Admin should be the one who perform it.--AldNonymousBicara? 18:09, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
On most small projects, local admins aren't there or don't even know how to do it... I'm the one who added those links years back. Candalua (talk) 08:18, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
Hrrm, true, I thought you gonna act on big wikis, apparently I'm wrong, I have no objection with this request.--AldNonymousBicara? 16:15, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Support Support valid reason and as noted, on many small projects the local admins have no idea how to do this. QuiteUnusual (talk) 16:12, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Support Support --Kolega2357 (talk) 17:38, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Support Ok .--Grind24 (talk) 19:09, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Support Support -- Trusted user. Wagino 20100516 (talk) 04:00, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
  • @Candalua: done for two weeks. Let me know if you finish sooner or need a bit more time. Thanks! Ajraddatz (talk) 22:41, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. In the meantime, it seems like the interwiki links got broken on Special pages, and it looks like no one has a clue about it. So it's probably not a good idea to remove the local links from Mediawiki:Recentchangestext until this bug has been solved. I will wait some time and then see what is best to do. Candalua (talk) 08:41, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
This bug has been tracked on phab:T102888 Candalua (talk) 10:46, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Support Support (putting on my WS hat) well qualified and trusted user who would IMO utilise the right appropriately.  — billinghurst sDrewth 14:50, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Things on bug T102888 are stalled. I asked if I should fix the interwiki links manually but didn't get a proper answer. I'm not doing anything at the moment. If there are no updates on the bug in the next few days, feel free to remove my interface editor rights. Candalua (talk) 13:08, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Interface editor for Mr. Stradivarius[edit]

I'd like to request global interface editor rights for fixing old JavaScript gadgets. In particular, on 1-2 July, an API change will come into effect that will stop many gadgets from working properly. I have fixed all of these scripts on enwiki and mediawikiwiki, where I am an admin, but there are still a lot of scripts left to fix on other wikis. Some of the scripts that will break are relied on heavily by editors on many wikis, for example HotCat. I have not counted the exact number of gadgets that need fixing, but the numbers from specific wikis should give you an idea: 10 on Commons, 1 on itwiki, 1 on zhwiki, 1 on enwikibooks, 2 on enwikiversity, and I'm sure there are quite a few more that I would find with a proper automated search. I would like the ability to go and fix these scripts directly.

It should be done in a week or two, hopefully before the gadgets break, but fixing them after they break would be better than not fixing them at all. Ideally I would like the ability to fix user JavaScript as well, but there doesn't appear to be a user right that allows this easily. (Global sysop would allow it on smaller wikis, but most of the wikis where the problem is most apparent have opted out.)

A quick overview of my technical abilities: I started out by editing Lua modules, which I have now been doing for a couple of years. You can see a selection of the modules I have created here. I started learning JavaScript in earnest earlier this year, and I have now created a couple of sizable gadgets: SpamUserPage and SignpostTagger. I have also had a few patches accepted to various Wikimedia repositories (mostly Scribunto). — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 04:00, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Note: I have since made an edit request on Commons to get HotCat fixed, carried out by User:INeverCry. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 10:00, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
