Requests and proposals Steward requests (Global permissions) latest archive
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. For requests that are unlikely to pass under any circumstances, they may be closed by a steward without further discussion (after a reasonable amount of input).

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
}}
::''Not ending before {{subst:#time:j F Y H:i|+5 days}} UTC''

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 XXBlackburnXx[edit]

Not ending before 17 April 2019 02:34 UTC

I've been globally reverting vandalism for quite some time, and I think this global permission would be very useful for me. - XXBlackburnXx (talk) 02:34, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

  • GA candidate.svg Weak support rollbacker on nl.wiki and has not seemed to have any history of abusing such user right.

Global IP block exempt for Pattonwang[edit]

I am in P.R.China right now, because of the political reasons, most of the wiki projects (including zh wp, ja wp, zh-yue wp, wuu wp, ug wp, zh wikinews etc.) are blocked in this country. I have to ask for a global IP block exemption in order to edit those blocked wiki projects, thanks, --Pattonwang (talk) 16:46, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Currently you are not prevented from editing? Ruslik (talk) 08:22, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
@Pattonwang:? Ruslik (talk) 12:00, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
有这个权限不代表您在那些项目上不会被禁止编辑的,如果您是认为获得是权限后可一劳永逸,建议您在个别项目上申请ip封禁豁免。(Noticing that this right cannot bypass local ip blocks)-- CreampieGolden State Finals Champion 13:16, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
Just to clarity "most of the wiki projects are blocked" is not true. To be more exact, only those Chinese related projects are blocked in China. So this user can access to Meta-wiki without proxies and request for global IP block exemption. (Answer to "Currently you are not prevented from editing?" ) He has been granted IP block exemption on zhwp locally but also wants to edit other Chinese related projects. Considering that those Chinese projects hardly block proxies locally unless they vandalize and this user may be only prevented by global blocks, a global IP block exemption may be helpful. --94rain Talk 15:09, 7 April 2019 (UTC)
@94rain:. They aren't censored by GFW mostly but they will be blocked as using proxies (people tend to be lazy to switch). Meta isn't blocked for most proxies, so they can edit here. Hence they are still blocked. In general although I know this isn't a permission needing voting, having such a low edit count and without demonstrated crosswiki work I'm against granting such rights. The user can just use their proxy to edit zhwp and then switch to normal editing for the rest. We have users in zhwp having GIPBE after only few edits and then start socking. Hence, I would be very concerned by such requests.--Cohaf (talk) 06:53, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
Considering that this editor only made few edits, neither am I inclined to support this request. I suggest the editor make some more contributions to zhwp and request again after a few months. If the editor really want to edit on a specific project, please request for a local exemption or find other ways to access to those projects instead of using open proxies (For example: zh:Help_talk:如何访问维基百科#使用Nginx本地反代无需代理服务器直连维基百科). --94rain Talk 07:26, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
  • BA candidate.svg Weak oppose I don't think this right is necessary for you because you only made a small amount of editing.Regards. -- Catherine Laurence 15:03, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
    @Catherine Laurence: This is not a vote. Please refrain from doing so in the future. Hiàn (talk)/editing on mobile account 15:16, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
