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.

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;

Global rename for ZI Jony[edit]

Not ending before 26 June 2018 19:02 UTC

Hello, I would like to request global renamer rights to help peoples to rename their username globally. Regards, ZI Jony (talk) 19:02, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Oppose Oppose less than 3000 edits, also less of experience (around 2500 edits on 2018) and there's a lot of warnings in your enwiki talk page (Most important that your rollback flag removed due to improper rollback)! --Alaa :)..! 20:16, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Applying for every right you can think of in such a short period of time is considered hat collecting and is extremely frowned upon. The multiple open requests at c:Commons:Requests for rights as well the issues at enwiki present numerous problems for me. --Majora (talk) 20:42, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose: Inexperienced. –Ammarpad (talk) 01:57, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose lacks the sort of experience required for this role. – Ajraddatz (talk) 02:03, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose no meta experience, relatively new at homewiki, really no xwiki experience. — xaosflux Talk 02:27, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per above. Concerns with experience -FASTILY 04:02, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Per experience issues, never saw them clerking at their home Wikipedia's username change venue. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:25, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose TonyBallioni (talk) 05:50, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per above.--Faisal talk 09:21, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Per Above. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 22:52, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose No involvement with the username change process on either Meta or at the English Wikipedia (which is your home wiki), and as such, no demonstration of knowledge or understanding of the process. No evident need for this user permission. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 02:48, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose: Not trusted for any additional rights. Sæn 08:22, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per Majora. I closed ZI Jony's request for Commons rollback and noted the withdrawal of rollback on ENWP. Instead of requesting so many permissions, please focus on gaining experience in ordinary "bread-and-butter" editing on your home wiki (which is English Wikipedia, not Meta-wiki) e.g. reviewing drafts, writing articles, uploading policy-compliant files, reversing vandalism, using the Undo function a lot more, participating in deletion discussions etc. It is important to realise that there is a lot more to wikis than holding advanced permissions. Without ordinary editing taking place, advanced permissions are pretty much meaningless. That said, there is more to Wikimedia than just English Wikipedia (although it is important). Come back in a year with more experience on ENWP, and at least one more wiki (although edit counts are subjective, I’d suggest that 3,000 in 15 months is on the low side), and I’ll be more likely to support.

Global rename for Editor D.S[edit]

Not ending before 30 June 2018 23:10 UTC

Hello. I want this permission to respond to solicitations on lusophone projects, mainly pt.Wikipédia, which is my source wiki. I am currently an administrator on pt.wikinews and have already used the renaming tool on a Wiki that, although I do not belong to Wikimedia, I was part of the administrator and bureaucrat groups. I know that the renaming tool is available in user contributions, along with privileges management buttons, deleted contributions etc. In my source wiki there are a lot of renaming requests and I would like to be able to contribute with one more task and with responsibility. I know the new user name can not exist in other wiki and the user can not be blocked in any project. I'm stay openned to questions. Thanks! --Editor D.S (talk)Meta-Wiki Patroller.png 23:09, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Since you are "open to questions", please explain this. You were blocked on your homewiki for some disturbing reasons in the past 11 months:
    1. for incivility/rudeness
    2. for abusing multiple accounts/sockpuppetry and vandalism
    3. for sockpuppetry/vandalism (different incident)
    4. for vandalism
There are more, I just picked these and sometime your talkpage and email access had to be disabled because of continuous rant. Can you explain how that happened and what have changed? –Ammarpad (talk) 05:29, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
Hello Ammarpad. Thank you for your question. First of all I'm sorry if my English is not very suitable, because I do not speak much English. I can explain these blocks. If you look at these blocks, you will see that they occurred well at the beginning of my activity on pt.wikipedia. I confess to you that as a novice I felt quite difficult in the project and committed wrong attitudes that I thought were correct. About blocking for abusive behavior, it was precisely because I did not understand the rules of the project and insist on attitudes that I thought were correct. But this incivility was never due to rude words, because I always try to talk politely. About blocking due to multiple accounts, it was because, early on, I practiced testing on articles not logged in my account, as a kind of experimentalism, and the checkuser decided to block it because of that. But I have never used multiple accounts to attack other editors or participate in polls, discussions, etc. On removing my access to the email, it was due to the fact that in one of the blocks I was nervous and used the PDU incorrectly (but I emphasize that I did not use inappropriate words) and a bureaucrat (with whom I was having conflicts previously) decided remove my PDU and email access.
But today, I say with happiness, that I have changed my behavior quite a lot, even because I learned from these blocks. Currently I am dedicated to combating vandalism in pt.wikipedia (and I even receive praise from other editors) and also started to contribute to the monitoring of other projects of Wikimedia Foundation, as well as in the patrolling in Meta-wiki. Whenever a vandal is reported in Steward requests/Global, for example, I research the vandal's global contributions to try to reverse them. I feel like I'm growing more and more in the wiki world. --Editor D.S (talk)Meta-Wiki Patroller.png 14:53, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Sock blocks on a home wiki are a no go for holding any advanced global rights for me. I know this is a global community, but on en.wiki it sounds like you would have been indefinitely blocked. My standard is if the behavior could have lead to a legitimate indefinite block on any major project (which it sounds like it could have in this case), we shouldn’t be giving out global rights. TonyBallioni (talk) 20:03, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose primarily per the too-recent-for-me blocks on homewiki. Also to note the existing "administrator" access claimed is a temporary grant. — xaosflux Talk 20:34, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
Xaosflux and TonyBallioni, I understand your point. But I would like to remind you that the blocks are not so recent and the multiple account block was due to testing on articles over IP. I think the most important thing is that I learned from those mistakes and did not repeat them again. --Editor D.S (talk)Meta-Wiki Patroller.png 02:51, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
All were within the last year and a block log like that could be indef on some projects, and since it is a global right, how the behavior would be viewed on other projects matters. I may be willing to support in 6 months, but not now. TonyBallioni (talk) 02:56, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
"recent" is subjective, like I said, too recent "for me", others may disagree. — xaosflux Talk 04:19, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose would prefer more time between the homewiki incidents and granting advanced permissions like this. – Ajraddatz (talk) 04:27, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Thank you for your answer. Please continue your anti-vandalism work on pt.wp and don't engage in sockpuppetry and vandalism again. –Ammarpad (talk) 06:00, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per above. Concerns with recent blocks on pt wiki. -FASTILY 17:56, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose The user needs more experience and recover the trust of his homewiki. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 14:35, 23 June 2018 (UTC)
