Requests for global rollback permissions

Global rollback for Stanglavine

Not ending before 17 February 2019 16:44 UTC
Hello, I've been working more and more with cross-wiki vandalism, mostly via IRC, but it's been a lot of work and time-consuming to use the undo function, so I'd like to be able to use the rollback. I really wanted to be able to use SWViewer as well. Rafael (stanglavine) msg 16:44, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

Requests for global sysop permissions

Requests for global IP block exemption

Global IP block exempt for Pamputt

Hello, I am requesting a global IP block exemption for all wikis. The reason is I already needed such permission on frwikt, frwiki and enwiki because I contribute using VPN and sometimes through the Tor network. If I want to edit on any other wiki, I do not want to ask for this permission again and again. Pamputt (talk) 06:38, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

Since you are going to contribute only to Commons, a local exemption is more appropriate. Ruslik (talk) 17:41, 9 February 2019 (UTC)
A local exemption for Wikimedia Commons sounds alright to me. Where do I need to apply for that? A quick search did not reveal a similar page for local whitelisting. OsmHydrantBot (talk) 18:49, 9 February 2019 (UTC)
c:COM:AN sounds the best one for me. — regards, Revi 18:50, 9 February 2019 (UTC)
I agree there - this recommendation came from @Vituzzu: though - who may have some more insight? — xaosflux Talk 00:51, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
The block is not meant to target this bot nor the owner. I cannot lift it just for technical reasons so I prefer the widest solution. Anyway if the owner is fine with a local exempt that's obviously not a problem to me. --Vituzzu (talk) 07:36, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

Requests for global rename permissions

Global rename for Dr-Taher

The following request is closed.
Not ending before 11 February 2019 16:45 UTC

Hello, My name is Taher, I'm an editor and sysop in Arabic-wiki (my home wiki). On ar.wiki we suffer in many occasions from user names that violates our local username policy, and I help (very active) in follow-up unaccepted usernames (Mainly on Wikipedia:Usernames for administrator attention). Unfortunately, user:فيصل (Faisal) resigned and now علاء (Alaa) is the only active one on rename page on arwiki (which make a great load on one user). Since I'm available on a daily basis on ar.wiki, and there doesn't seem to be a reason that would prevent me from participating daily for the time being, so I believe I can help in this issue.

Global rename for Zoranzoki21

Hi, I am sysop on Serbian projects (except Serbian Wikipedia but I will be there too soon). I actively working on technical matters there. I contributing on Phabricator and Gerrit too. I read Global_rename_policy and I confirm this policy so I give this pledge to respect of rules related to global renaming of users.. We no have renamers and stewards which understand Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian and I think that I would do my job responsibly. Zoranzoki21 (talk) 17:34, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

@Zoranzoki21: Why do you need the right? Leaderboard (talk) 17:41, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

  • Oppose Oppose At the same time and previous to this request, the user has also requested the patroller and translation administrator permissions in Meta. IMHO, gives me the feeling of a possible hat collecting. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 18:02, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
@AlvaroMolina: I no works and I no contribute for hats. What is difference between my request and request for this right of previous user which you supported? Zoranzoki21 (talk) 18:14, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
@Zoranzoki21: I did not know the situation of that user in English Wikipedia, I only had in mind the fact that in the language of his home wiki there were no other experienced global renamers, and that perhaps a demonstrated and well-founded need could be evidenced in his request, that's why I subsequently changed my position; in this case, however, and despite the fact that I am open to supporting all the applicants of the global renamer permission of uncommon languages who wish to help and obviously have proven local experience/trust, it does not seem normal for a user to apply at the same time two other permissions with quite particular purposes, so I would not feel comfortable giving my support to an application under this concern.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    • 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)

  • 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)

          • 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)

Abuse filter helper for Leaderboard

As a user who has experience in bringing down spam through filters, I'm interested in analysing the abuse filters of MetaWiki (especially ones with global effects and private) to see how it could be improved. I would have ordinarily applied for a local permission, but I cannot see one which allows users to view private abuse filter logs. Please let me know if a different permission would suit me better. --Leaderboard (talk) 10:09, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
