Requests for global rollback permissions

Global rollback for The Herald

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

I have been editing since May 2013 with over 7000 edits globally. Have the rollback rights in 3 wikis and now want it to be more better editor. Thanks.

Oppose Oppose I would like to see more cross-wiki activity, And having the rights doesn't make you a better editor - I think you already are a very good editor :) --Stryn (talk) 16:49, 19 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Oppose Oppose I've never seen you rollback before. And from what I've seen you are hungry for this right, correct me if I am wrong. --Goldenburg111 17:44, 19 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Oppose Oppose Generally rights are handed out when they are required. As stated on global rollback policy "users must be demonstrably active in cross-wiki countervandalism or anti-spam activities" but i don't see any cross-wiki activities. Besides that i'm seeing you seeking for rights on wikis frequently and that's also make me uncomfortable. You don't need GR right to be a better editor. ~ Nahid Talk 19:11, 19 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
After review x-wiki activity Oppose I can't support the request. Alan (talk) 23:01, 19 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Oppose Oppose Lack of crosswiki activity, there is no really need to have this flag. Restu20 23:44, 19 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Previous request. PiRSquared17 (talk) 23:51, 19 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Oppose Oppose Outrageous request, also considering the last one. Vogone (talk) 23:56, 19 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Question Question: Hi The Herald. I actually have a few questions. What has changed since your last request? Why are you so hungry for rights? Can you give an example of some good reverts/taggings xwiki? I'm not going to brag but I've been editing Wikimedia on this account for 3 months now and have edits over more projects and have a higher edit count than you. Is there a specific reason you need these rights? Eurodyne (talk) 00:18, 20 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
I swear this is not Hat-collecting. I use all the hats I had in the past. Since now I am acknowledged as a good editor, it's fine with me to be so. But rights are useful in many-a-ways. The changes which I had since last time is indeed more in en-wiki, commons and wikidata. So you see less x-wiki activity. --The Herald 10:06, 20 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Sufficient level of xwiki activity is required for GR. — revimsg 12:09, 20 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Oppose Oppose per above. — revimsg 12:09, 20 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Oppose Oppose Even if you are a good editor, good editors don't hat collect. They are here to help the project and not to game the system. I see no xwiki experience. Eurodyne (talk) 20:43, 20 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Oppose Oppose per above - limited x-wiki experience -FASTILY 19:19, 22 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Oppose Oppose per above --Grind24talk ??Contribs 22:44, 22 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Requests for global sysop permissions

Global sysop for DerFussi

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.
Not ending before 22 November 2014 09:28 UTC

I am bureaucrat on Wikivoyage de/en/it. Nobody seems to care for the small Wikivoyage versions. WV/vi is going to be spammed. I can only mark it as spam but would like delete it as well. Also active on commons adn global renamer -- DerFussi 09:28, 8 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

If you see a mass spam attack on a small wiki without active sysops, you can report them at SRM and stewards/GS will look into it. It's not like we don't care about small wikis; no one has just seen them yet. I just deleted the spam pages at viwikivoyage and will try to setup a filter if there is a pattern I can find. Regarding the actual request for GS, I don't think GS tools are given to cleanup on only a small subset of wikis. Also looking at your global edits, I do not see much antivandalism/antispam contributions (without counting deleted edits). Additionally, GS states that "Global sysops are highly trusted users with a strong track record of cross-wiki contributions" and I see only ~40 wikis with edits with this account. So although I trust you and thank you for your efforts to tackle spam on small Wikivoyages, I will oppose this one, unfortunately. --Glaisher (talk) 09:47, 8 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
  • Although I think 40 wikis us not that bad, I agree with Glaisher. It would seem to be more efficient if you would apply for sysop on those small WVs. --Randykitty (talk) 11:45, 8 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose Weak Oppose Per Glaisher. 40 wikis is not bad although most Global sysops have edits across hundreds of wikis. Yes, you are definitely trusted although I would like to see a bit more cross-wiki edits. Eurodyne (talk) 19:11, 8 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
  • Support Support Highly trusted user who will certainly make beneficial use of the tools on our Wikivoyages. As one of the very first contributors to Wikivoyage and chairman of the Wikivoyage e.V., DerFussi certainly has the best in his mind and also sufficient experience in global administration of Wikivoyage projects. Vogone (talk) 22:45, 8 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
  • Sorry but I agree with Glaisher and Randykitty. Alan (talk) 22:51, 8 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

  • Not really sure what to think about this one. On one hand, we could use someone to do maintenance work on Wikivoyage, especially on the smaller sites. On the other, I'm not sure that the candidate has enough experience on other Wikimedia projects to the point where I would feel comfortable granting admin tools on the other 600-700 global sysop wikis that are not Wikivoyage. --Rschen7754 08:12, 9 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
    • Now moving to Oppose Oppose per Snowolf. --Rschen7754 06:05, 10 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose per above. --MF-W 00:00, 10 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose Oppose - and while I get he's trusted (as editor/chairman, that's not relevant), imho high activity levels are more important. Trijnsteltalk 00:44, 10 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
  • &  out of the 8 projects edited by the candidate in the two months, he has sysop on three, 4 others are not GS projects. The only project edited by the user in the last two months that would be covered by this request is Wikidata, which is a major project hardly in need of GS. Candidates for global sysop ought to be active on small wikis *before* requesting filing a request. The last time the user was active on a wikivoyage project where they didn't held sysop rights was mid-April. Therefore, there is no demonstrated need for this right, and so the question of whether it is worthwhile to grant such a sweeping right to somebody who intends to use it on a small subsection of wikis does not need to be considered. Snowolf How can I help? 04:44, 10 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
    A more in-depth look at this user's contributions on wikivoyage projects where he does not hold sysop rights show that the user has only ever nominated spam for deletion on one project during 1 day, the 8th of November, where he nominated 6 pages for deletion on viwikivoyage (all but one of the edits also had no edit summary). This project was not previously counted in my analysis above, as the user's edits there have been deleted, but this leaves me even more convinced that this request is very much premature. Snowolf How can I help? 04:57, 10 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose Oppose per Snowolf. Restu20 17:25, 10 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
  • Comment Comment I am aware, that this is a too early request. And understand your concerns. I would think the same. But i have seen, that the smaller WV wikis face some problems. And due to my own limited time i am too tired to firstly mark edit as spam and after that always writing requests here at SRM to have them deleted. To be honest. This process wastes my time. Either I can help the small WV wikis or I hope, people with the necessary permissions look after the small WV wikis more regularely. Maybe you can limit the permission to the WV wikis only. But I see no way to apply for an sysop at e.g. WV/vi because there so limited activity and i dont speak the local language. Just see spam. Any better idea? -- DerFussi 05:46, 11 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
  • Comment Comment it is one of the times when I think that a sister-wide permission right would be useful, ie. letting the wikivoyages having admins that can manage cross-language activity, as the user will tend to be in that section of wikis, and that would alleviate the xwiki concerns in the broader set of sisters.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:00, 11 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
    • I agree 100%. The global sysop is the only way to take care of the small WV language versions right now. Actually I dont need it. I even have no time to work on the other projects. But I could help the small versions with MW namespace, blocking and spam deleting. -- DerFussi 12:52, 11 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
      • Support Support For want of such a right that applies to one sister project only, I just would like to say that I know DerFussi for many years now because I was one of those users who contributed to Wikivoyage when it still was on its own before becoming a Wikimedia project. At the time, I joined the team of Wikipedians who paved the way for Wikivoyage to the WMF. DerFussi is known to be a highly trusted user, and he will use his permissions with care. So I agree to Vogone and other users supporting his request.--Aschmidt (talk) 21:22, 12 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

  • Oppose Oppose Not sure what you mean with "Nobody seems to care for the small Wikivoyage versions" I personally [try to] check every day all recent changes on Wikivoyages' without admins. If those wiki's are spammed then global sysops/stewards will delete spam when they see the spam. If you work mostly in Wikivoyage, then I think that GS is not really for you. --Stryn (talk) 21:06, 22 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Comment Comment - But unfortunately there is no project wide sysop right. Every contributor with a job in real life has no time to work on different WM projects regularely to meet the necessary demands to become a global sysop. Normally a contributor focuses on one project. In my case w work on WV and contribute to commons and wikidata. It's worth to think about a request for comments to introduce sister project wide admin right. I don't need sysop rights on Wikipedia, but it would be useful to have some local Wikivoyage wide admins to delete spam, edit protected sites and the MW namespace. just to help the new small wikis. -- DerFussi 06:23, 23 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
  • Support Support -- He has an obvious use for it. The requirement is strong interwiki activity. He has 10.000+ edits in 7 projects, 1000+ in another 2, and edits in another 30. I think anyone active with a 1000 edits in 9 projects is strongly interwiki active. I don't think interwiki necessarily means all 600 something projects. I can fully understand where Snowolf is coming from, but I have sufficient trust in this user to outweigh any concerns. I expect they will use the toolsand I trust them fully to use them correctly. SIncerely, Taketa (talk) 09:24, 23 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
X mark.svg Not done. There is no clear consensus to grant this permission. Sister project wide admin right would be a suitable right for this request but for that a separate discussion should be started and consensus should be arrived.--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 08:18, 24 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Requests for global IP block exemption

Global IP block exempt for Aflyhorse

Hi, because of the Great Firewall in PRC, I was blocked while accessing and editing specific wiki contents. These days I found my VPN provider was blocked because of NOP policy. I'd like to request a global IP block exemption. Currently I have 561 edits on zh wiki and 126 edits on en wiki. Thanks all. --Aflyhorse (talk) 09:50, 29 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Hello everyone, I would like to volunteer myself to the Global Renamers. Yes, I am not bureaucrat on any wiki, but our only Korean-speaking global renamer Sotiale hasn't been around due to his real-life matters, and our CHU is being backlogged and I am the only one taking care of it. I have sent some users waiting for renames to SRUC (1, 2, 3, 4, Korean Wikipedia CHU- I am only guy clerking the page), but I believe I can process it faster with the tools.

Autopatrolled and Uploader for Amitie 10g

I'm an experienced user that currently contribute mainly in Commons, but my activities may be extended to other Wikipedias.

Therefore, I request the global permissions indicated above, the both if possible. Thanks. --Amitie 10g (talk) 22:59, 16 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Well, we can create our own global groups at will should consensus exist. However, autoreview is a content-related permission and is something that each individual wiki regulates, as out at Meta we don't generally control content. --Rschen7754 23:17, 16 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
