Requests for global rollback permissions

Global rollback for Pkbwcgs

I have rollback on four different wikis and I am good at fighting vandalism. I believe that global rollback will help and enable me to fight vandalism globally and I can be helpful globally by doing this. Having rollback on four different wikis demonstrate that I can fight vandalism globally. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:53, 5 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not ending before 10 December 2018 19:53 UTC
Most of your xwiki contributions (wikis where you don’t currently hold rollback or comparable permissions) are image moving or other maintenance tasks not related to anti-vandalism. What need do you have for the tool? Thank you, Vermont (talk) 21:08, 5 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Vermont: I was going to give a detailed response on this but I lost it on an edit conflict. I have rollback on four wikis and I believe that with experience on those four wikis, I can use global rollback responsibly. I have also previously fought vandalism in Simple English Wikipedia and little vandalism fighting on Meta. However, global rollback will speed up the process of revert vandalism globally quicker which means that I can fight vandalism on other wikis better when I receive this. I am not multilingual but I can spot the most serious vandalism on a foreign language wiki other than English. I hope this answers your question. Thanks. Pkbwcgs (talk) 21:31, 5 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
My concern is that you don't have any experience in anti-vandalism on non-English wikis, and thus am hesitant to support granting global rollback. Vermont (talk) 01:24, 6 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Easier in this manner, could you perform 20 rollback like undos in non English language projects and report back the edits. Thanks for volunteering anyway.--Cohaf (talk) 01:33, 6 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Oppose Oppose. Lack of cross wiki experience, my distribution is even slightly better. This is the only thing that cause me to hesitate supporting. Good vandal fighting experience in English projects. Sidenote: The oppose above is totally ludicrous and incoherent. --Cohaf (talk) 15:41, 6 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The oppose above that you refer to, although not written in grammatically correct English, highlights an important point: they’re really only active on the English Wikipedia. Even on the wikis where they have rollback, editing is sporadic (weeks or even months at a time with no edits) and not consistent. Vermont (talk) 15:55, 6 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
My bad, apologies as the language makes me think that they are opposing based on having rollback rights for only a week up to now. Yes, I agree consistency in editing across projects are important but do also note that at some smaller projects, at times you don't have much to do anyway. I didn't use rollback at all at zhwikiversity since I'm granted. --Cohaf (talk) 16:12, 6 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am trying Huggle on multiple different wikis and seeing if I can catch vandalism on the ones where I don't have rollback. Pkbwcgs (talk) 18:34, 6 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Well, I suggest you see User:Vermont/huggle notes. In short: You don’t need rollback to use huggle on the vast majority of Huggle-configured wikis, and the ones that require rollback are large wikis with local policies that you should not be looking to bypass. Vermont (talk) 18:59, 6 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Disregard the above; I had misconstrued your comment. Please feel free to use my list (linked above) to find wikis where Huggle may work. You could also use the SWMT IRC channel and other tools listed here. Thank you, Vermont (talk) 19:44, 6 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Oppose Oppose at least for now. I'm concerned with the level (or lack) of maturity here, as you have quite a block log on your home project and things like this in particular demonstrate some inability to deal with conflict. People who work globally often wind up victims of an accidental block or the target of nasty LTAs, in case of the first, this pretty much applies.

  • Oppose Oppose per the concerns brought up by Praxidicae and overall lack of xwiki experience. --Az1568 (talk) 20:26, 6 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg Strong oppose. I'm afraid I can't support this request and I have concerns about the candidate's competency and maturity. Several months ago, Pkbwcgs underwent two RFAs at the Simple English Wiktionary. He refused to drop the stick long after consensus (that he would not be granted the rights) was proven; furthermore there was a suspicious vandalism spike in the period before and during his RFA (with several IPs geolocating to the UK, seemingly the country he lives in right now). Immediately after his RFA was closed the vandalism stopped abruptly (yes, I'm implying he was socking). His meltdown on test2wiki forced several users to resign their bureaucrat rights and he seemingly also requested admin and 'crat rights at test2wiki solely for the purpose of testing adminship. There were also several cases where he used rights on one particular wiki to justify getting rights on another without a particular need for those rights. Quite frankly it looks like he's abusing the system for rights, and I won't be surprised (hypothetically speaking) that if he was granted these rights he would use them to justify gaining rights on another wiki. Firm no from me, and it will be a firm no from me with any future requests (requiring community consensus). Hiàn (talk) 20:50, 6 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • @Hiàn: If you have any allegations of me socking then you can consult Steward requests/Checkuser. Pkbwcgs (talk) 22:03, 6 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • I knew they withdrawn but the statement above shows that their knowledge about CU is solely lacking which will be somewhat hampering trust of community to grant GR. First, SRCU is for wikis without checkuser, and Simple has their own checkuser. Secondly, the data is stale. Lastly, checkuser is not for fishing and cannot be used to connect IP and accounts. In addition, CU is not to prove innocence. --Cohaf (talk) 01:26, 7 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Oppose Oppose per my comments above as well as the issues described by Praxidicae. Vermont (talk) 22:00, 6 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I usually patrol cvn IRC channels and sometimes to remove vandalism I have to undo multiple changes made by the same user, so rollback would greatly help in this and overall, which will also save time as well as increase my ablity to do more for project.

I have had ip block exemption on English Wikipedia for some time as I use ExpressVPN to edit due to the block of Wikipedia in Turkey where I live. I would also like to edit Simple English Wikipedia and Turkish Wikipedia but I cannot see any obvious procedure to apply for local exemptions on those wikis so perhaps those wikis do not have local blocks.

  • Neutral Neutral I don't particularly care about the "no experience with the global rename policy" bit raised by Hiàn, and don't really consider that a good reason to oppose: really, no one is going to be familiar with the procedures that we use unless they are a renamer or steward, and I find "clerking" renames to be less than useless and usually borderline disruptive, so I'd highly discourage anyone from doing that to try to get this hat.

    I'm neutral because my normal standard here is "trust" which can be demonstrated by being a sysop on a large wiki (any wikinews does not count towards this) or by substantial work on meta/xwiki. While Editor D.S. had some previous experience on meta, they largely fell off after a few months, and it doesn't meet the threshold I have for trust in that area. That being said, they appear trusted on their home project so I can't outright oppose. I can't support either, however. TonyBallioni (talk) 23:28, 9 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Global rename for TheSandDoctor

I am requesting global renamer as I would like to assist with renaming users and wish to branch out from solely helping on en-wiki, where I am currently an administrator (sysop) and active bot operator/developer. Most of my work on enwiki is in administrative areas and I would like to be able to assist users with renaming in order to help reduce the backlogs and wait time for those requiring/requesting renaming. The only reason I apply for any user rights is with the goal of helping out and easing the burden on others (in this case, global renamers). I have reviewed the Global rename policy and feel that I can help out further. I thank you for your time and consideration. --TheSandDoctor Talk 08:59, 13 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Good point raised by Vermont, beside English and French, what other languages could you understand TheSandDoctor? I am asking as your SUL isn't showing a lot of crosswiki activity. In addition, there had been many recent enwiki GR being promoted, so the backlog at enwiki should be manageable. Is there any backlogs at French Projects?

  • Support Support per my comments in the neutral above: sysop on a major project, so meets the trust requirement, and I’m not particularly sure why Cohaf brings up the blocking policy as unlike other requests, this one specifically doesn’t mention it and explicitly says they want to help beyond, so that normal reason for objecting makes zero sense here and it’s not fair at all to raise the issue with every en admin who applies. The “no backlogs” argument is also a weak reason to oppose because, well, by that standard we shouldn’t have any new renamers. Adding more people who can be trusted is a good thing. This permission should not be membership in a club that you can only get if you’re friends with meta people or know a major language that has no renamers. Namely, support because there are no reasons to oppose here. TonyBallioni (talk) 15:38, 13 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • @TonyBallioni:I raise that up exactly to prevent any further discussion of that issue in GR. Clearly we should evaluate the candidate based on themselves, not any local banning policies. Every enwiki admin which applies here almost have their discussion filled with it. I personally felt enough is being said and hope this application will be more focused on the applicant. That's not an objection at all, I think you got me totally wrong.--Cohaf (talk) 15:51, 13 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • Cohaf, I'm sorry for misunderstanding you. I was confused by the bringing it up at all, which I think distracts from the candidate, but I now understand what you were trying to do. TonyBallioni (talk) 15:59, 13 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
        • We are on the same side for this issue Tony. I am personally asking the SUL issue is that as far as backlogs are concerned, language competency is sometimes needed to prevent the current case at SRUC from happening as they seemed to be willing to work on the global queue. --Cohaf (talk) 16:06, 13 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
          • Meh, you just ignore the requests that come in in a language you can't understand or you use Google translate if it's been sitting there for a while and it's obviously not going to be an issue. TonyBallioni (talk) 16:09, 13 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
              • Meh indeed after thinking retrospectively. However, Google translate is awfully bad for Chinese till that extent we have a special CSD criterion at Chinese Wikipedia for poor quality machine translation. --Cohaf (talk) 16:22, 13 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
                • I would only work where I understood the language and do recall how bad google translate is at muddling things up. Machine translations aren't always pretty.

      • Yeah, but one, he can’t actually see the GlobalRenameQueue so didn’t know that and you can hardly hold it against him, and two, having more trusted hands on deck is always a good thing. We’re not exactly talking rocket science here, and while global renamer can do a lot of damage, in most cases it’s pretty straightforward.
