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;
  3. You are logged in on this wiki, and the account is part of your global account;
To make a request

 |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 rename for Yunshui[edit]

Not ending before 3 May 2018 11:51 UTC

I spend a lot of my time on en-wiki reviewing username blocks, and would be able to ease the workload of other en-wiki global renamers if I had this right. However, please note that I'm not especially active on other Wikimedia sites, and that while I'm extremely familiar with the en-wiki username policies I won't necessarily be au fait with those outside my local wiki - so I will probably stick to non-contentious local renames as much as possible. Yunshui (talk) 11:51, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Support Support. We get a large number of unblock requests on en.wiki which require renaming, and an admin being able to do the rename and the unblock at the same time makes it easier for the blocked editor (with the arcane 2-step process being quite confusing), and it helps reduce the burden at the global rename queues. Yunshui is one of our most prolific admins working on unblocks, has a lot of experience, and is as trustworthy as any other I know. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 12:45, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support Absolutely. One of our most trusted admins and functionaries. No reservations at all. TonyBallioni (talk) 14:06, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Support Support Gods yes. per above.Dlohcierekim (talk) 16:16, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support trusted user who can probably figure out how to rename users properly. That said, it strikes me that enwiki is making work for itself - if you simply add a link to Special:GlobalRenameRequest for users who are blocked because of their username then every admin active in unblocks wouldn't need to also be a global renamer (inspired by @Matiia:). – Ajraddatz (talk) 16:28, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
    That's an interesting suggestion - as most admins seem to use the Twinkle tool, it would only need the link to be added to the appropriate Twinkle block messages and the blocked editor could request a name change first. Having said that, it's sometimes surprising how many times blocked editors suggest new names which are still unsuitable on en.wiki (but might be fine elsewhere - eg company names on de.wiki).

  • Support Support OTRS access and checkuser + oversight on enwiki? Most definitely trusted enough for the rename tool. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 16:51, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

Global rename for Dlohcierekim[edit]

Not ending before 3 May 2018 12:42 UTC

While I have no interest in renaming except on the English Wikipedia, it would streamline processing user name unblock requests on English Wikipedia. Now I must unblock and ask the requester to wait further for renaming. I could do it all in a single page visit, thus lifting the load from others.Dlohcierekim (talk) 12:42, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Support Support.

Dlohcierekim is one of our most prolific admins working on unblocks, has a lot of experience, and is as trustworthy as any other I know. (I said it was well as I could in Yunshui's request, above, and the same applies here.) Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 12:46, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support--One of our most experienced admins as to spam-u-blocks, which often requires a rename, while unblocking.And as Boeing said, one of the most trust-worth sysops.Winged Blades of Godric (talk) 13:19, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support Same as with Boing!: there are a relatively small number of us who regularly work unblocks on en.wiki, and renames are one of the most frequent unblock request types. Dloh has a need here, and it would be useful for him. TonyBallioni (talk) 14:07, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Support Support Active and trusted. –Ammarpad (talk) 01:22, 22 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support Feels a bit quid pro quo to support here since Dloh has already supported my own request, above, but I'll pile on... Yunshui (talk) 08:32, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

Global rename for Stanglavine[edit]

Not ending before 8 May 2018 20:03 UTC

Hello. I want this permission to respond to solicitations on lusophone projects, mainly pt.Wikipédia. I'm sysop on this wiki and the requests on pt:Wikipédia:Renomeação de conta are serviced by only two users, and there is a constant flow of requests. This is the reason for my request. I'm stay openned to questions. Thanks! Stanglavine (talk) 20:03, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Support Support seems trustworthy enough to hold the permission. – Ajraddatz (talk) 19:21, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
