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).

Global IP block exempt for Ruhubelent[edit]

I am editing Turkmen wikipedia through VPN as I am in Turkey and I have block exemption there, I sometimes need to connect pages from other wikis. As I have no IP block exemption on other wikis I am unable to link pages. I rarely edit on other wikis as well. I know the vandalizm I have committed on Turkish wiki may make you think of denying me IP exemption, note that I truly regret what I have done there and I apologized to all of them on my talk page. I will never commit it again. Sincerely yours, kind regards, --Ruhubelent (talk) 15:19, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

Have you asked for unblock? Ruslik (talk) 06:58, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
Ruslik0, No, I have not asked as I have committed vandalizm. It would be pointless to ask. Is it necessary to get unblocked on a wiki a user has been blocked so that he can get global IP exemption? If so, I will try negotiating. --Ruhubelent (talk) 08:48, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
Note that I truly regret committing vandalizm, Ruslik0. I always knew I should not damage Wikipedia, I appreciate Wikipedia. I do not have enmity towards it, I was just trying to protest their treatment towards me. I know I should not damage Wikipedia to protest its administrators. I regret it and will never commit it again, I can not ask for unblock because my block is now deserved one. Sincerely yours, --Ruhubelent (talk) 18:32, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
UPDATE: Asked for unblock. Rejected. The admin said it is not possible as of now. --Ruhubelent (talk) 15:50, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
I am not comfortable granting an IP block exemption to anyone blocked for vandalism anywhere. Ruslik (talk) 19:58, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

Global rename for Conde Edmond Dantès[edit]

See deleted pages cross wiki for MoiraMoira[edit]

As a global sysop I help out with cross wiki vandals. Since those often are active with unwanted matters like spam, promo and vandalism cross wiki it would be a great help if I could see deleted pages cross wiki. Now I only can see them on my home wiki and those accessable to global sysops but cross wiki vandals occur everywhere often. That would help vandal fighting, knowing what sockpuppet or IP did what in the past and thus being able to act more proactively when researching matters. Thanks, --MoiraMoira (talk) 12:22, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

  • One of the reasons why the global sysop tools are not global is that many "opt-out" wikis do not want global sysops to have admin-level access on their wikis. If you want to see deleted pages cross-wiki, the most efficient way would be to apply for stewardship in the next Steward elections, but to me it does not look like there is any basis to allow "opt-out" exemptions for any individual global sysops. Regards, --Vogone (talk) 12:31, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
  • The only group that currently exists and would let MoiraMoira view deleted content (there are a lot of other groups with enough permissions to do so, but that are innapropriate to grant outside election or WMF decision) would be the delete-global global group. However it consist on active rights as well and Vogone's concerns do apply there. On the other hand, I can trust MoiraMoira not to make use of those on opted-out of GS wikis. Notwithstanding, the delete-global permission was created for a very specific purpose and user (synchbot) and I'm not sure if we can/want to expand access to it.

GIE for Isarra[edit]

Hi, I was previously granted global interface editor rights in order to facilitate the deployment of the Timeless skin (Steward requests/Global permissions/2017-08#Global interface editor for Isarra) - the skin is now deployed globally, but development is ongoing, and due to the nature of a skin as the interface of a wiki, bugfixes in particular will often require onwiki changes and it's not always feasible/sensible to put the locals to the trouble for an experimental skin (though I will admit I did slightly mess this up once - I'll try to do better about making it clear just why I'm making the changes in the future). Along with Timeless, I also have a few other projects where these rights have proven invaluable due to current permissions requirements for configuring content models, editing json, and other mw-namespace configuration - for the deployment of CollaborationKit in particular it will get very silly if I can't even help people set up/reset their test hubs myself, and will need to get some other admin to do it for me every time. (Yes, this requirement is a bit silly, and it is generally planned to be fixed in core, but who knows when that will actually happen.) -— Isarra 17:03, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

Also note that this hasn't technically expired yet, but is set to expire tomorrow - which is a little weird. My +2 as a developer doesn't expire, so why does this, a thing that probably a lot more people are actually paying attention to? -— Isarra 17:08, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
