Requests for global rollback permissions

Global rollback for Turkmen

Not ending before 30 May 2019 22:36 UTC

Hi, I'm active in many projects. I know or understand many of the Turkic languages (sometimes global rollbackers get revert edits without understand). I spend 5 hours a day and more on Wikimedia projects. In this regard, this right can be more than I have. Note that, as we all know, this right does not have so much opportunities. It just helps fight with vandalism. I ask you to vote for my my work.

Finally, I thank all of you for participating in my voting.--Turkmen talk 22:36, 25 May 2019 (UTC)[reply]

  • Oppose Oppose Many reasons, starting with controversy relating to the azwiki RfC. Some comments he made there and actions being questioned are reminiscent of his unfounded accusation in his first Global Rollback request, which he failed to link here, that Alaa had opposed him for nationalistic reasons. ([1]) In that request, there is another problem similar to that which we have now. Turkmen is active on no projects other than those dozen or so which he edits actively, and on all but two (azwikibooks and azwikiquote) he has rollback, sysop, or similar permissions. I see no need for global rollback permissions; simply request them locally. There is also his Global Rename request, where he engaged in revenge voting, lying about his previous comments to Alaa, likely canvassing of azwiki users (as with the previous global rollback request), and general issues in responding to criticism. I cannot support this user for these rights. Thank you, Vermont (talk) 14:10, 26 May 2019 (UTC) [reply]
Neutral Neutral/Oppose Weak Oppose Considering that it seems they intend to use it on mostly Turkish projects (from their request), I am inclined to support. However, as Global Rollback is a truly global permission that applies on all Wikimedia projects, I am not sure that they will use it responsibly on projets where they do not speak the language as they have very few edits on wikis outside the few they edit semi-regularly.

  • Neutral NeutralGA candidate.svg Weak support The pros are the candidate have sysop / rollback permission in different wikis, which makes me belief they have competency in reverting. However, there are concerns such as I really find very little recent reverts across wikis that are not your homewikis or are in language you are not a native speaker of. For many of such wikis, the contributions are image releated, such as adding pictures or Global Replacing. The azwiki issues doesn't concern me that much, only the RD are problematic in some sense. Vermont concerns also hold some ground and not too long have passed. I will hope you continue to patrol the smaller wikis and reapply in a few months. Thanks for all the contribution to Wikimedia, especially for the az projects. --Cohaf (talk) 16:04, 26 May 2019 (UTC).

  • Support Support I trust Turkmen and seeing that he has spend long time in a lot of WikiProjects. This right will help him to fight with vandalism strongly. Sincerely --eldarado 18:43, 27 May 2019 (UTC)[reply]
  • Support Support not a big deal. Trusted enough. Global perms are not a clique of friends, but rather tools to help people who have legitimate uses for them. While Turkmen might have some issues, I have seen nothing that would lead me to believe that granting global rollback would actually harm any Wikimedia project, and I suspect it may help some. TonyBallioni (talk) 19:03, 27 May 2019 (UTC)[reply]
    • Not a clique of friends, but they need to be able to communicate and work effectively with administrators on other wikis. It is not good to have a global rollbacker who keeps running into trouble on various wikis because of their communication. --Rschen7754 18:18, 28 May 2019 (UTC)[reply]
      • Yes, I agree with that, but I also think the odds of him abusing it on projects where he isn't already trusted is next to zero based off of his central auth. I'm not particularly convinced by the just use local rights bit because he appears to be trusted in the language groups he works in and I don't like the recent trend of defining cross-project as effectively meaning cross-language. It looks like it'll be used on multiple wikis in communities where he has trust, which for me is enough. If on the odd chance he decides to use it to edit war on or, I'm confident he'll be blocked and stewards can look at removing. I don't think that will happen, however.

Global rollback for NewDataB

  • Neutral Neutral. While I see you have rollback experiences on various projects, you don't seem to counter-vandalism beyond projects which you have rollback permissions in. I notice that a large amount of your edits on other wikis are adding pictures or updating name or correcting links etc, good editorial stuff but not in countervandalism.

  • Support Support a random clicking of projects in their CA proves Cohaf’s concerns to be factually incorrect. A user with 38,000 global edits who knows what vandalism is, is active on many projects, and is asking for this in good faith? Of course they can get it and the concerns raised here further raise my existing concerns that global permissions is being viewed too much as a club rather than as tools to help. This is a textbook case of where the permission would be useful. The only thing that separates them from some other candidates is they aren’t active in meta circles, which should have no bearing on this request. TonyBallioni (talk) 16:38, 31 May 2019 (UTC)[reply]
    • I also did a random clicking on like 123456. So TonyBallioni I really did random clicked and sort of found wikis they did not do countervandalism in. I am not really factually wrong but yes, they did countervandalism in some other wikis (en/es/ca). --Cohaf (talk) 16:49, 31 May 2019 (UTC)[reply]
      • Cohaf, you are factually wrong. You did a random sample, and you sampled the wikis where they didn’t do anti-vandal work. That just means you took a bad sample. Not necessarily your fault, it’s one of the inherent limitations of non-statistical sampling, but now that it’s been pointed out that your comment is incorrect it’s probably worth revisiting your concerns. TonyBallioni (talk) 16:53, 31 May 2019 (UTC)[reply]
        • TonyBallioni I get your point. We are both not wrong. I am seeing they edited 100 projects, so I visited some to check quality of reverts. When I see such contribution, it makes me hesitate. I will note some of the wikis they have reverted quite a time ago. I didn't check stewardy. On a closer look, yes, I am a little over categorical, will strike off some parts of comments. I will Support Support this .

Global rollback for LightandDark2000

Not ending before 23:46, 29 June 2019 UTC

Hello. I am LightandDark2000 (also known as BlueHypercane761 on Wikimedia Commons). I'm an experienced editor primarily active on and Commons, though I do visit other Wikimedia Project sites occasionally, usually when I'm updating data cross-wiki, or when I'm dealing with cross-wiki vandals and trolls. I'm requesting Global Rollbacker rights because I wish to fight cross-wiki vandalism much more effectively and faster than I can right now. Right now, I have to deal with opening up the vandalized diffs on non-English Wikimedia sites, clicking the undo button, and then publishing my changes (and sometimes leaving an edit summary), in order to actually revert cross-wiki vandalism. This is very inefficient, especially when the vandalism involves an LTA who is actively disrupting the said project, and this drawback seriously hampers my ability to fight vandalism. Additionally, on some Wikimedia sites (such as Wikiversity), I am completely unable to revert vandalism at all, due to edit filters that prevent reverts by new editors. In the past year alone, I've had to deal with cross-wiki vandalism on more than 10 Wikimedia Project sites (mostly Commons and, and I expect this trend to continue in the future as I continue to fight cross-wiki LTAs and trolls; however, I have experienced more difficulty reverting vandalism on some sites, due to the issues mentioned earlier. I can recognize obvious vandalism on different Wikimedia Projects, and if there is an edit that I cannot distinguish from vandalism, I tend to leave it alone. Regarding this Global right, I would like to say that I've been fighting cross-wiki vandalism for close to 2 years now (mostly in the last year), and I have responsibly used the Rollbacker tools on for more than a year. I have read the policies on Global Rollback and I understand the responsibilities associated with using the tools. If I am granted Global Rollback rights, I promise never to abuse the tools for my own purposes or to further an edit war; I plan to use the tools to become a more effective anti-vandal user on the various Wikimedia Projects. Thank you for your consideration. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 23:46, 24 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]

  • I recommend you create a global userpage; it's important for local wikis to be able to contact you if necessary. In regard to your request, though it is definite you've engaged in a lot of LTA reporting, I see quite infrequent use of undo and very few edits outside of enwiki and metawiki. Why is this so? Vermont (talk) 00:11, 25 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Regarding my userpage, I would prefer that other users see my userpage in order to learn more about me (or to contact me). This is especially because is my home wiki, and if I were to create a personalized userpage here on Meta, it would be very similar to the one I have on (unless I choose to create a simplified, watered-down version). This is why my Meta signature (and my signature on some other multi-language sites) all link back to my userpage on I hope that this isn't an issue. Anyhow, I may consider creating a simple userpage on Meta in the near future. On other wikis, the reverts don't seem to come that often (because I usually don't frequent most foreign language wikis); however, my cross-wiki reverts have been ramping up in the past year, due to my increased cross-wiki involvement (most notably seen on, and I expect my cross-wiki activities to continue in the near future, due to my cross-wiki anti-vandalism campaign. The low count (on foreign language wikis) is also partially due to me avoiding reverting edits that I can't clearly distinguish from obvious vandalism. The low count can probably be attributed to the fact that my cross-wiki involvement on the foreign language wikis largely began last year, but I expect more activity on some of those sites in the near future, since several of the LTAs I'm dealing with seem to love targeting those sites. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 00:42, 25 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
I have now set up a Global userpage on Meta. Users should still see my main userpage on (linked) if they wish to learn more about me. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 01:08, 25 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
  • You have been repeatedly blocked on enwiki: [2] The blocks are a few years old and I do not necessarily see them as disqualifying, but I would like to hear from you why you believe that you were blocked and what is different now. --Rschen7754 00:23, 25 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
The blocks on several years ago were mainly due to one of 2 reasons: 1) Obsessive sock tagging (mostly due to my desire to have everything done the same way), and 2) Edit-Warring. For the first item, I no longer obsessively tag, since I now know that doing so is disruptive, especially after my recent experiences have shown me that some LTA socks are just better off not being tagged at all. For the second item, this was mostly due to bad judgement on some articles related to the Syrian Civil War. I have tried very hard to avoid the same behavior since then (including taking some temporary breaks and avoiding the said pages when necessary), and I believe that I have avoided any blockable offenses since my last one in November 2015. Now, I am much more cautious on getting into content disputes and making potentially disruptive edits; for the most part, I have matured significantly in the past several years, and I would like to say that I'm not the kind of person who would engage in those behaviors again. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 00:42, 25 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose for now. On small-medium projects without local administrations to give rollback, you only have a few dozen undos, spread out over more than a year. on projects that are large and have their own rollback procedures (eswiki and wikidata, in your case), you have about a hundred or so each. I think it's best for you to continue using undo for the time being until you've gained more experience making reverts on wikis where you dont speak the language, and requesting rollback on those two wikis where you seem to nearly exclusively use undo. Per the global rollback page, global rollbackers "must be demonstrably active in cross-wiki countervandalism or anti-spam activities". Considering your present activity level, undo should be perfectly okay. On most wikis, simply having a registered account for a few days will prevent you from needing to complete CAPTCHA's and being stopped by most filters. Thank you for volunteering, Vermont (talk) 01:37, 25 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
  • I thank you for your level of countervandalism. I appreciate the work you had done on SRG. I think the number of undo you did is very close or more than mine. However, these are concentrated in a few wikis which local rollback tools are available. If we are speaking on crosswiki edits, I am seeing a weak crosswiki matrix. As of wikiversity needing CAPTCHA, irrc only en needs that and you have confirm rights, to prevent such situation, do use Krinkle global SUL, it's a very helpful tool to create accounts across all WMF wikis which will then help to skip in most. As of behavioural blocks, I feel they are old and they had matured slightly, although their talk page archiving vs deletion here on meta is still an issue in the last year. For meta global user page, thanks for having one and I hope the signature on meta points to that not into en here. I feel they are competent in rollback, just didn't have enough crosswiki experience for me to be confident that they can use the tool in language they dont understand.

I am active on the English Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons. thanks, --LaundryPizza03 (talk) 20:47, 19 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Global IP block exempt for Newslinger

Hello. I am requesting global IP block exemption to contribute to Wikimedia projects (including Wikidata and Wikimedia Commons) through VPN services on unsecured wireless networks. My account is currently subject to local IP block exemption on the English Wikipedia. I use a strong password and two-factor authentication to minimize the chance of my account being compromised. Thanks for your consideration. — Newslinger talk 08:44, 24 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]

2FA Tester for Kostas20142

Hello! I would like to be granted 2FA access in order to increase my account security and since it is also linked to a sensitive application (due to private data and more), English Wikipedia Account Creation Assistance Tool. I have read and fully understood Help:2FA and the potential risks if instructions are not followed. Thanks in advance, Kostas20142 (talk) 12:42, 14 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@Kostas20142: - How will be one able to access ACC private data, even if one breaches your account? IIRC, ACC interface (like OTRS) requires seperate log-in and isn't linked with SUL by OAUTH. Winged Blades of Godric (talk) 16:29, 15 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Winged Blades of Godric: I am not requesting it solely for this but for account security in general. Coming to your question, the application is in linked applications and has occasionally prompted me to wikipedia login when accessing it. (as a security precaution I am de-authorizing the application when I am logging off from both accounts). Kostas20142 (talk) 16:40, 15 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Winged Blades of Godric: fixing ping Kostas20142 (talk) 16:40, 15 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, I have nothing against your request. It links to check the blocked-status and rights (from what I see) but I don't see how anyone who has succesflly breached your wiki-account but does not know ACC credentials would be able to read private data. Winged Blades of Godric (talk) 16:44, 15 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Winged Blades of Godric: He cannot. Only if he actually breaches the ACC and the wiki account can. This is quite extreme actually as a scenario but want to be sure. But I wouldn't really like to see anyone using pagemover or accountcreator rights either in case of a potential breach, both would be bad. (Although I am using a strong password in both accounts). --Kostas20142 (talk) 16:48, 15 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
