Requests for global rollback permissions

Global rollback for Nbfreeh

As stated in Global rollback you should be demonstrably active in cross-wiki countervandalism or anti-spam activities. If you wish to use the tool for the wikis mentioned you better ask for local sysop or local rollback. Gain more crosswiki experience, join the SWMT, and ask later. Thanks for helping but I will Oppose Oppose for now. —Ah3kal (talk) 15:31, 30 March 2016 (UTC)[]
Thanks for applying, but at this time I don't think you have the cross-wiki countervandalism experience required for this. I'd recomment you join #cvn-swconnect, help reverting vandalism actively and reopen this request after a few months. You can use User:Snowolf/How to globally Twinkle. Best of luck!

Requests for global sysop permissions

Requests for global IP block exemption

Global IP block exempt for AYST201

I travel fairly frequently or often and whenever I do, I use a VPN whose IPs are blocked, but I don't vandal and I'm not comfortable about it. GIPBE would be very helpful for me during such times. Thanks you AYST201 (talk) 14:27, 6 April 2016 (UTC)[]

  • Oppose Oppose Right away, I am having issue with you stating that you use a VPN, because it makes it that much harder to track you if you are doing something of ill intent. A correct request would state that you do not want to use a VPN, and you get blocked quite frequently. Furthermore, I blocked you last month on Outreach for showing up and throwing up an errant deletion tag on a user page, and then spent days getting you to promise on your talk page that you would abide by the rules of the site. I still strongly suspect that you vaguely related to Arifys based on the fact that you both edited that page, and the lack of a denial about this concerns me. You are also a frequent applicant on this page, and it seems like you are just going down the line for requesting rights. While you may be operating in good faith (and I suspect that you are), there are enough things at this time that concern me that make me oppose this request. Kevin Rutherford (talk) 22:54, 6 April 2016 (UTC)[]
@Ktr101: I new use vpn during the holiday, I didn't use vpn before. And only holiday I wan using vpn.Like the previous explanation, I was me, and I am not a user of another. It seems you too suspect or you are not happy with me. What to edit on the same page, a person is considered equal ?. I already said that I was and I was not related to any user. As Arifys.

AYST201 (talk) 06:20, 7 April 2016 (UTC)[]

You (most likely) have other accounts which are blocked on some projects. Please stick to one. I won't give you this flag right now, because it could allow you to conceal your use of multiple accounts and I don't think that's a good idea. Ajraddatz (talk) 06:24, 7 April 2016 (UTC)[]
I am not unhappy with you, even if my recent actions indicated otherwise (I unblocked you, which says a lot). You were able to convince me that you were going to operate in good faith, but the VPN use and how you stated it is what concerns us. One way to justify needing it is to request it locally on multiple wikis when you encounter IP blocks, as that will give you a very strong platform to stand on, instead of pre-emptively asking for a global right. Kevin Rutherford (talk) 06:34, 7 April 2016 (UTC)[]

Global IP block exempt for DuncanHill

Just got caught in a global IP rangeblock made by User:Masti, I connect to the internet using the services of Three Mobile, a major mobile provider in the UK and my IP address is likely to change whenever I come online. I was left with not even the ability to edit my own talk page on my home wiki (English). If global rangeblocks like this are to be made then it is likely I will be caught in them again. Thanks, --DuncanHill (talk) 00:41, 7 April 2016 (UTC)[]

Done. Please note that if you get caught up in local rangeblocks as well (which is possible with these mobile ranges), you'll need to request a local exemption as well through the usual processes on enwiki. Ajraddatz (talk) 06:27, 7 April 2016 (UTC)[]

Requests for global rename permissions

Global rename for PhilKnight

I'm an active admin on the English language Wikipedia, where I help with unblock requests. I'm requesting global rename permission as to help users who are currently blocked and need a name change. Otherwise, we unblock them and direct them to a page on how to effect a user name change, which is often confusing. It would be easier for all concerned if the users were unblocked and renamed at the same time. I would only use this tool for rename requests on the English language Wikipedia. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by PhilKnight (talk)

  • Support Support for reasons given. I don't have a problem with Phil but I don't really see the need. The English Wikipedia rarely unblocks anyone and even rarer do they change their name after doing so because they would be equal to evading scrutiny. So I just can't see why that would need to be done for the reasons given. So unless they were wanting to help with global renames in the queue there isn't much need for the tool.

Collapse discussion
  • He is active in unblock requests, and a lot of those are based on usernames which violate local policy. He is able to rename the users to a better username as part of the unblock process, rather than sending them to another page this way. So, there is a legitimate need for the rights, though I agree that helping out more generally would be appreciated as well. Ajraddatz (talk) 19:45, 28 March 2016 (UTC)[]
Again, I am just not seeing it. According to his contrib history he has only edited Meta a couple dozen times since 2006. So it's not like he was leaving lists of work to be done here for global rename. Now that we have a global username system, changing it on one project should change it on all of them anyway. If it doesn't, then that should be fixed. So I still don't see a need. Reguyla (talk) 19:20, 29 March 2016 (UTC)[]
He's seeking permission to change names on enwiki but since the global rename system, that permission must be obtained here (rather than w:WP:RFB. So your opposition doesn't make much sense. –xeno 22:10, 29 March 2016 (UTC)[]
I changed my vote to support because one oppose is meaningless anyway. He's clearly going to pass but just to clarify, now that the global rename has taken effect, anytime any account on a project is renamed, that rename should, via bot or some other means, automatically change that account name on all the corresponding projects. That makes this request silly, because it should already be in place. As the logic is now, if an admin renames an account on any project and doesn't have global rename, then it basically just creates a mess out of the accounts cross project. We shouldn't be creating messes IMO. Reguyla (talk) 00:04, 30 March 2016 (UTC)[]
That's precisely how it works. The global rename facility renames every attached account. So while Phil may intend to only action requests that originate from enwiki, his renames will inevitably change the global account itself and any and all of its attachments. Hope that explains things, thanks for revisiting your position. –xeno 00:35, 30 March 2016 (UTC)[]
I think your missing my point. Currently when someone renames an account on ENWP or any other wiki, it only changes on that wiki right? Because if it didn't work that way, then he wouldn't need this right. So then someone else has to do a global rename to change that account on all the other wiki's the local renamer could change or it creates a mismatch between that account/wiki and all the other Wiki's. I also know a lot of those aren't getting reported and changed and I can see that just by looking at the ones that Phil renamed. So, this isn't a need for Phil to have global rename rights, this is a case of the system and account rename process needing to change so when an account is renamed on one wiki it changes it globally to prevent making a mess. That means all account renamers now require global rename rights by default as a result of the global account process change. So we shouldn't even need to grant this, because it should have been done as a process change based on the global account process change. Reguyla (talk) 14:12, 30 March 2016 (UTC)[]
Reguyla Actually, there is just one kind of account rename nowadays, which acts globally. PhilKnight is applying for the permission needed to rename accounts globally.Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 15:22, 30 March 2016 (UTC)[]
Roger that, thank you for the clarification. I am going to cap off this discussion so it's not distracting the discussion. Reguyla (talk) 17:32, 30 March 2016 (UTC)[]
  • Support, looks fine to me, though I do not agree with Xeno's comment above.

Global editinterface for ANBI

Hi! I'd like to re-request this right. I joined the Pashto wikipedia in 2005. I started first with the interface translation of Mediawiki in Pashto language on the local level, then I started at which was renamed to later. I am one of the most active translator in ([1]). There after I started other projects translation and you can find all my record at I have also rigorously translated the interface messages applied for pashto wikipedia's javascript and css. Likewise the translation of mediawiki message boxes, highlights and am regularly getting messages regarding new translations needed. For your information I am placing the link of the contributions that I have made so far here. You can also find other contributions done by me here at wikimedia. I have recently been granted the temporary adminship at Pashto wikipedia.

Global editinterface for Coren

Hey there. While working on lots of little things in and around wikimedia config and global tools, I often find myself in positions where I should be able to make tweaks to bits of interfaces or edit templatedata as we deploy visualeditor or new ve plugins or i18n messages living in the mediawiki namespace.

That's always done at the behest and with the collaboration of the local communities, but it's a bit silly to have them go through the process to give me admin rights that I will use for a few days and then discard (and for which I only need a subset in the first place).

I've been admin on a couple projects for many years, and was a Foundation staffer in operations for three of those; I know how to not break things (and how to fix them when I do make an error).  :-) — Coren (talk) / (en-wiki) 13:48, 2 April 2016 (UTC)[]

On what kind of wikis do you intend to make use of this permission and under which conditions? --Vogone (talk) 14:10, 2 April 2016 (UTC)[]
Well, the immediate case is the French wikisource; in all cases, the permission would be used when the community requested deployment of a tool or extension (as is the case here) and some technical edits are necessary to make it work. — Coren (talk) / (en-wiki) 14:14, 2 April 2016 (UTC)[]
Can you provide a example, please? Thank you. --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:15, 2 April 2016 (UTC)[]
In this particular case, there are a half dozen protected templates that need templatedata (like this), and about two dozen interface messages of the proofreadpage-visualeditor-... pattern. The i18n eventually will be made part of deployed extension but as the code is in beta and in quite a bit of flux, it will probably change too often in the next couple weeks for the deployment train to be useful. This is all part of work on phab:T48580. — Coren (talk) / (en-wiki) 14:31, 2 April 2016 (UTC)[]
(Edit conflict.)Alright, this answers my question. In my opinion the request is valid and thus I support. --Vogone (talk) 14:16, 2 April 2016 (UTC)[]

CAPTCHA exemption for AlvaroMolina

Hello, I would request permission from CAPTCHA exemption because in several wikis where I am not autoconfirmed, I have to fill out the annoying captcha to create my user page also the only external links I included are my social networks and personal blog (see my user page on meta). Thank you. Alvaro Molina (Let's Talk) 20:00, 9 April 2016 (UTC)[]

Using the Global SUL tool and then waiting a few days would be the solution for your case. --Steinsplitter (talk) 20:03, 9 April 2016 (UTC)[]
@Steinsplitter: Very useful tool. Now it will be a matter of waiting it is autoconfirmed in each of the wikis. Thank you so much. Alvaro Molina (Let's Talk) 20:20, 9 April 2016 (UTC)[]
Thanks to Steinsplitter for linking you to the proper avenue; that information should be advertised somewhere... That said, I've granted you temporary CAPTCHA exemption for 4 days while you wait. I know how much of an annoyance they can be if you're trying to do xwiki work, and you clearly aren't a spambot. Regards, Ajraddatz (talk) 20:22, 9 April 2016 (UTC)[]
@Ajraddatz: Thank you very much for your assistance. Regards. Alvaro Molina (Let's Talk) 20:26, 9 April 2016 (UTC)[]
Can't you use global user pages instead of creating a user page on every wiki? Or am I misunderstanding? Legoktm (talk) 22:12, 11 April 2016 (UTC)[]
@Legoktm: Prefer page local user, because I can well represent more clearly the things I do specifically in this wiki, also on my page global user can not show specific way I do in every part, eg only show one summary of what I do, but I do contributions. So I prefer in certain cases the local user page. Regards. -- Alvaro Molina (Let's Talk) 22:20, 11 April 2016 (UTC)[]

Global editinterface for Nirmos

Hi. I would like to be a global interface editor to update old JavaScript. Nirmos (talk) 13:00, 9 April 2016 (UTC)[]

  • Question. What is your experience with js editing? Ruslik (talk) 18:19, 9 April 2016 (UTC)[]
    • Ruslik0: At Swedish Wikipedia I have made a lot of gadgets as well as scripts for individual users. The substitutions that need to be done on all projects I've already made on Swedish Wiktionary, Swedish Wikibooks, Swedish Wikiquote, Swedish Wikinews and Wikimedia Sweden. Nirmos (talk) 20:38, 9 April 2016 (UTC)[]

This is urgent. Many projects will be in script error later this month if no one does anything. I would like to fix as many projects as I can before that happens. Nirmos (talk) 17:12, 10 April 2016 (UTC)[]

First of all, these requests are typically open for 5 days. If there are urgent problems that need fixing, post a request on SRM. I also don't understand what you plan on doing - can you provide more specific details of what old JS you want to update, and where? Ajraddatz (talk) 17:13, 10 April 2016 (UTC)[]
Ajraddatz: The technical details are that all global variables (except mw) will be removed. You can read more here:
This needs to be done on all projects. Nirmos (talk) 17:21, 10 April 2016 (UTC)[]
I guess that all other interface editors are aware of this too, right? —MarcoAurelio 17:55, 10 April 2016 (UTC)[]

This is not a joke. I need to start working now to minimize the destruction when this hits. Nirmos (talk) 17:46, 14 April 2016 (UTC)[]

This right isn't a joke either. As you can understand, we can't approve this without community consensus and favourable comments. Thanks for your understanding. —MarcoAurelio 18:19, 14 April 2016 (UTC)[]
  • Support Support from myself. The requestee seems to be well-intentioned and competent enough to make the changes. If this is such a large problem though, there should probably be coordination with other volunteers and perhaps help from the WMF. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:23, 14 April 2016 (UTC)[]
  • Are you aware it is discouraged to make use of this permission without asking the local communities in case they are not small? --Vogone (talk) 23:19, 14 April 2016 (UTC)[]
  • Oppose Oppose Unconvinced that the user is willing to tread carefully and work cooperatively with local communities, given the "urgent" need to "minimize the destruction". Usually when I've seen this sort of rationale, this "reason" is used to stonewall the local community into submission. --Rschen7754 07:31, 15 April 2016 (UTC)[]
  • Oppose Oppose I'm not convinced that the user has enough JS experience, nor am I convinced that (as Rschen7754 says right above me) that the user will be careful enough with this right especially in the communities that dislike outsiders mucking around with their stuff. If the need is so pressing, as Nirmos claims it is, certainly there are stewards and/or others who have a proven track record with this right that can make the needed fixes.
