Global IP block exempt for Wang Qiliang

Due to the Internet connection situation in Mainland China, visiting Wikimedia projects without proxy seems too slow, or even at sometimes not avaliable.

I have got an IP block exemption right in Chinese Wikipedia (zhwiki) granted by one of the SysOp; However, the IP blockage still confuses me sometimes when editing Wikidata, Wikinews and Wikimedia Commons.

Therefore, I sincerely request for a global IP block exemption given to me which would be very useful. Thanks a lot. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Wang Qiliang (talk)

Remove global IP block exempt for UT-interwiki-Bot

I am the operator of UT-interwiki-Bot. Since the implementation of "Cognate" in all Wiktionaries this bot "is retired" and no longer active. Please remove the global IP block exemption, because it is no longer required. Thanks in advance. --Udo T. (talk) 10:30, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for MickeyDangerez

Good day, I would like to request an IP block exemption for my account as my main connection to Wikipedia is via the Freebasics service, I feel that I am a trustworthy user and will utilise this exemption to continue my contributions to the Afrikaans Wiki and English Wiki should the exemption be granted, details of this block: 2a03:2880:3020:afdf:face:b00c:0:8000 and the block ID is #104956 other IP ranges have also been reported on different wikis. Up until a few minutes ago I was able to contribute to the Afrikaans wiki, thank you for your most valuable time in attending to my query and I most welcome your final decision, --MickeyDangerez (talk) 00:50, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

Requests for global rename permissions

Global rename for Kostas20142

Not ending before 24 August 2017 17:28 UTC

I am an active editor at en.wikipedia, simple.wikipedia, and a sysop at el.wikiquote. I noticed that there is no global renamer from any Greek project, or at least someone that knows the language. I feel that such a user would be helpful in handling requests involving users with Greek as native language, and that I can successfully take up this role. --Kostas20142 (talk) 17:31, 10 August 2017 (UTC)

Global rename for Moheen Reeyad

Not ending before 23 August 2017 23:19 UTC

I'd like to help out on renaming requested usernames where it meets GRP and to help the only user who has the remaining ability in Bangla Wikipedia. There is regular traffic in our local request page, but not enough users within access to close the renaming requests. I also noticed that there are no global renamers from bnwiki, aswiki and bpywiki. I feel able to do so and aware of all relevant rename policies as well its scope. I am an active Wikimedian on several projects (sometimes as SWMT member) since 2010, and currently have sysop rights on Bengali Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons; additionally serving as an OTRS agent. Thanks. ~ Moheen (keep talking) 23:19, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

Global rename for It'z DJPerez

Not ending before 25 August 2017 17:28 UTC

Hello or Salaam! Sorry for the previous blunder I made- I was in a small problem a bit but that's all over. I apply to become a Global Renamer. My reason is being a young editor and a temporary admin in the Swahili Wiktionary who would help in renaming users globally easing the work of the stewards in Meta Wiki. I've been in cross-wiki activities i.e. Simple Wikipedia, Swahili Wikipedia, English Wikipedia and Swahili Wiktionary. This would also provide an opportunity of me being the first Renamer in Swahili Wiktionary, Wikipedia and Simple Wikipedia as there's none. This would also be a great chance in bringing in a new breed of young and vibrant Wikimedia editors. I would be thankful if you gave me the right. Thank you. -- It'zDJPerez (talk) 17:28, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

  • Oppose Oppose Aside from the lack of experience as mentioned above, it seems that there is again a misunderstanding about what global renamers are about. We do not need "local" global renamers from each wiki as all global rename requests go to the same place and can be handled by any renamer (I am somewhat active on the Simple English Wikipedia, and I am a global renamer, so at least one of your statements would be technically incorrect. It doesn't matter, however, as Simple English Wikipedia doesn't have a local rename request page, and it doesn't need one anyways). Global renaming also has nothing to do with editing wikis, which would make your comment, This would also be a great chance in bringing in a new breed of young and vibrant Wikimedia editors, very much incorrect. Global renaming is an advanced user permission that is not for new editors. Unfortunately, as you don't seem to really understand the global rename process very well, I can't support this request. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 11:39, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

oathauth-enable for Bri

I read at the rfc on expanding 2FA opt-in that this right can be granted globally now by the stewards, and I'd like to enable it. I have read Help:Two-factor authentication, understand, and have the requisite personal devices. The need is twofold: 1) I have some advanced permissions on enwp such as rollbacker and account creator, and 2) access to my account via password reset has been attempted recently -- Bri (talk) 15:19, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

@Bri:: Yes check.svg Done; please be sure to print or store safely the scratch codes and that the TOTP device is in good condition before enabling this, otherwise you'll get locked out of your account. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:28, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

Global interface editor for Isarra

Hi, we're currently in the process of deploying a new skin, Timeless, to Wikimedia projects (T154371), and sometimes there are conflicts with existing stuff, or the default interface messages just don't work for the project, so it'd be good to able to adjust these to sane initial values for the project while rolling it out, especially as this would also make it easier for people on the project itself to find them later and change them again if they so choose.

Would it be possible for me to get global interface editor rights so I can just go ahead and do that?

Thanks. ---— Isarra 17:38, 17 August 2017 (UTC)
