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 Aldnonymous[edit]

Hello, because legislative and presidential election is coming close the government decides to blocks many sites, which forces me to use proxy. I used to be very active in Wikimedia project and member of Small Wiki Monitoring Team which previously held Global sysops, I plan to be active updating and cleaning spam (especially political campaign spam) on Wikis on Indonesian language family (from Ace.wiki to id.wiki and other wikis). This Gipbe will help me fulfilling this task. Thank you.--AldNonymousBicara? 02:16, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Global rename for JogiAsad[edit]

Not ending before 24 February 2019 00:40 UTC

Hi, I am sysop at Sdwiki and actively working on templates, modules, recent changes, abuse filters and new users. Currently there are some username policies on sdwiki and we don't have enabled Sindhi keyboard for sdwiki, so new users create usernames which are not in local username policy, I request Global rename permission, so I may manage this issue and help existing & new users for user renaming as per sdwiki username policy. thanks JogiAsad (talk) 00:40, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

  • Support Support There is a clear need for this permission from the user. There are no objections. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 00:52, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
    • Neutral Neutral Per Concerns in English Wikipedia. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 18:16, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Neutral Neutral Mixed impression, Might be a good candidate, but looking at a recent block on English wiki I am hesitant to support. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:14, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per recent block on en.wiki. As anyone who follows the renamer list knows, our big current issue is renamers unfamiliar with local projects renaming users from those projects without taking into account local policy or norms. Someone who has a block for violating a TBAN on en by definition has a record of not following local policy of a major wiki that is not their home wiki. I cannot support at this time. TonyBallioni (talk) 04:21, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per TonyBallioni. Also, a "clear need" is always hard to prove when you represent a small wiki and intend to use a global permission for that. --Rschen7754 05:59, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Wait a moment, nowhere in their nomination statement they said they are doing global queues and we don't know the size of backlog on their homewiki. Small wikis may have large backlogs, I know CSD is one but UC? Can't we wait for them to answer these before we oppose? Thanks much!--Cohaf (talk) 06:33, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
    • We have to assume that they can be trusted with global queues because we can't restrict someone from not doing them. It would be like restricting an admin from using the block tool. I also don't think a wiki that gets less than 20 edits a day has a huge username change backlog. --Rschen7754 08:21, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
      • Point taken but I still hope they will answer as they seems to say there's lots of inappropriate username accounts that needs renaming and that is sort of demonstrated need. I hope to understand slightly more about that.--Cohaf (talk) 08:53, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose No demonstrated need. Nihlus 20:11, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Neutral Neutral I don't care much of the fact that you represent a small wiki, but you shouldn't have violated the en.wiki topic ban; this shows a lack of policy understanding which is unfortunately required in a role like this. Leaderboard (talk) 14:30, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Support Support --Novak Watchmen (talk) 17:19, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Neutral Neutral I may not have the time to comeback to wait for an answer. I think since there are topic ban of admins for doing something, there can also be probably restrictions of GR for not doing some renames. What I am concerned is that there is little demonstrated need and not very convinced that my questions are not answered in time. So neutral. I probably won't have the chance to further comment on this. --Cohaf (talk) 17:53, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per TonyBallioni, and from what I've seen of them in relation to their topic ban on enwiki, I'm not sure if they'd be able to properly respond to any queries/questions regarding renames that they do. Galobtter (talk) 11:01, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose. As much as I'd like an sdwiki renamer unfortunately Tony makes a good point about your behaviour and don't feel you can serve as a renamer particularly well. Hiàn (talk) 20:50, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose per above. Concerns with recent behavior -FASTILY 04:39, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Neutral Neutral per Leaderboard on violated the en.wiki topic ban. DARIO SEVERI (talk) 00:40, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Neutral Neutral Because he also edit on Urdu wiki which is definitely not a small wiki, meanwhile, I know Sindhi language is still family of Arab language and can understand one another with all of these combined he can actually edits on a wiki with more than 1 million article (with just his language skill alone), so Rschen7754 concern about "he's editing on small wiki" is unfounded as I know trafic for arabic and urdu wiki is actually big, the only concern I have is, that, he can't understand what is Topic Ban due to the difference of practice between wikis.--AldNonymousBicara? 13:07, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
    • 586 edits? I have 650+ on French Wikipedia and I don't even speak the language. --Rschen7754 19:20, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
      • You completely missed the point, for example, he only have 1 edit on ar.wikipedia, but he can speak the language.--AldNonymousBicara? 19:30, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
        • I don't consider 586 edits on a different wiki sufficient need for global renamer. --Rschen7754 19:50, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
          • That's why I gave it neutral comment, I saw unused/wasted potential, but also problematic behavior on en.wp. He's a sindhi speaker, which means he can understand arabic, persian (farsi language) and hindi at the same time, how wonderful was that? How big the population of India, Arabic countries and Iran combined again? A serious waste of potential! This is my point of view, hope you understand this Rschen7754, this is why I think he is "not a small wiki" editor, but a potential editor of "multiple small and medium wikis", you saw the glass is half empty, I saw this glass is half full, it's just that.--AldNonymousBicara? 20:16, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

remove global OTRS member for Dogad75[edit]

Thanks, --Krd 08:52, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Substantiation? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 09:31, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
Substantiation? See. Dogad75 + НоуФрост = 88% permissions-ru 2018... OTRS rights were not returned to me after voluntary surrender for a month. In the absence of claims to OTRS activities. Dogad75 remove global OTRS member. And who will process tickets? НоуФрост (talk) 10:02, 18 February 2019 (UTC) Ping Krd. НоуФрост (talk) 10:04, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
Dogad75 has been contacted accordingly, and they are more than welcome to react. --Krd 15:58, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Прошу восстановить мне права OTRS. Извините, я просто не знал, что нужно снова подписать соглашение. С уважением, --Dogad75 (talk) 12:36, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
    • "I just did not know that I had to sign again the agreement" - as much as I understand, it is not about signing it for a second time. It is that L51 has been changed in some parts 95 days ago so OTRS members have to confirm that they do agree with the updated version of the Agreement. As I see you are not alone who missed it. --NeoLexx (talk) 15:04, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

Global editinterface for Sophivorus[edit]
