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;
  3. You are logged in on this wiki, and the account is part of your global account;
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
}}

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). 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 Максим Підліснюк[edit]

This is my second attempt. Since the first nomination I became more experienced as in the fight against cross-wiki vandalism and global work in general. --Максим Підліснюк (talk) 21:05, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Oppose Oppose Sorry, but per policy, "users must be demonstrably active in cross-wiki countervandalism or anti-spam activities", I don't see that here, with less than 35 reverts. Please use Twinkle for now. Matiia (talk) 21:52, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Per Matiia. Thanks for helping out, but we like to see more experience before granting these rights. Ajraddatz (talk) 01:09, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose I have the feeling that you are hat collecting. All the new rights in a very short period of time. --Steinsplitter (talk) 08:41, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Not enough experience and activity to support claim on nomination.--AldNonymousBicara? 11:12, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done No consensus. --Shanmugamp7 (talk) 06:01, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Global rollback for Tropicalkitty[edit]

I've decided to go ahead and submit this early... I think I am ready for global rollback. I understand what is obviously unconstructive edits. Although, I have been under fire when first using this username back close to the end of May (sockpuppet abuse of a user I never was related to at all on a major wiki, which I shouldn't have been there in the first place... I know [and some or most stewards know who I was prior [revealed on IRC]) and a block made on me in error at ru.wiktionary.

I'm not interested in the hat collecting at all. I never requested any local rights, but am satisfied with whatever happens and make sure I use it properly. Thank you in advance. Tropicalkitty (talk) 10:10, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, I know... it was something I shouldn't have said (along with this on IRC) Tropicalkitty (talk) 11:41, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose tagged a user talk page for deletion yesterday as well as their actual user page. I'm pretty sure most places don't delete such things for "no meaningful content" so there may be a bit to learn yet. --Herby talk thyme 11:50, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
I should have clarified that the user had links/content completely unrelated to the Wikimedia projects in one of their earlier edits. Tropicalkitty (talk) 11:55, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
One more...perhaps Tropicalkitty (talk) 12:05, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done - no consensus: Also, too many recent issues, including the link above of past history, issues also on Dutch Wikipedia. Tropicalkitty (talk) 20:37, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Genium[edit]

I am using Tor Browser again and was blocked in my attempt to edit Wikidata. I am allowed to use it on wfr and want to stop using another browser for all others wmf wikis. French government is currently spying its own citizens for security reasons, so it's time for me to use Tor all the time, including on all wmf wikis. Thanks, --genium ⟨✉⟩ 15:28, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Ability to edit protected redirects for タチコマ robot[edit]

I operate my bot on practically every wiki where I deal with double redirects through pywikibot redirect.py. I infrequently encounter protected double redirects per individual wiki but they accumulate over time. Manually dealing with this on so many wikis is a thankless tiring task which I would prefer humans aren't involved. The bot would only edit protected pages where the page itself is a double redirect. I request whatever minimum permission that would achieve this. -- とある白い猫 chi? 16:30, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

The only way to do this is to add 'editprotected' userright to the "global bot' global group. This will allow editing protected double redirects on all global bot wikis but will require a consensus. For the wikis where global bots are not allowed there is no simple solution. Ruslik (talk) 20:23, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
Oh indeed. I am only looking at wikis with global bot opt in with my request. My bot already has a global flag. I was told a special usergroup could be formed for allowing only protected redirect pages to be edited. This would be ideal for the purpose I am posting. It could also be beneficial to extend such a restricted extension to the global bot flag. Such a redirect bot flag would be helpful on wikis that opt-out of a global bot flag where the alternative is having an admin bot which isn't something many communities are comfortable in having. -- とある白い猫 chi? 11:51, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
