Requests for global rollback permissions

  • Oppose Oppose Don't be discouraged and thank you for your contributions but a index of 0.94 as well as only 31 wikis edited (which only a few are small wikis) clearly shows lack of experience. Many of the other edits from the rest of the projects aren't reverts but moving of files. I also note that they did not have rollback rights on any wikis (unless I am wrong) which doesn't give me confidence that they will know how to use the rights properly. Do apply for local rollback rights first in projects in Commons. I will note that even for commons their use of undos here seems to be only to their own contributions.

Requests for global sysop permissions

Requests for global IP block exemption

Global IP block exempt for 它是我 and Prins Jan de 1e

Please permit me to edit with the IP block exempt. I am using an open proxy due to the fact that I connect to internet using a VPN connection which is permanent on our home-router. Due to the nature of VPN, it is likely that my IP-address will often change. My main account is 'Itsme' and that account has already been granted permission to edit with the IP block exempt (a few years ago) for other reasons. I mainly have been active on the dutch Wikipedia under my main account 'Itsme' and as my sock puppets '它是我' and 'Prins Jan de 1e'. Thanks, --它是我 (talk) 14:10, 2 January 2020 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for User:OxonAlex

I quite often attempt to edit using public WiFi on trains, but find these IPs to be globally blocked quite frequently. For example, I'm currently editing from 35.178.115.66, which is rangeblocked, and used by en:Avanti West Coast's WiFi network. I have also had the same problem on other operators. Not really a massive issue, but would be convenient to be able to edit from these networks.

I am spending a lot of time on those trains and necessarily have to use that network; I have already been unblocked on deWP and testwiki, but since I usually switch between a number of projects (Italian and English WP, most importantly), a global exemption should be the best solution (if the IP block has to be kept in place).

Global IP block exempt for CoconutLord80

<(Sorry for spelling errors) I use Cloudflare's DNS service 1.1.1.1 , as well as a VPN ocaionaly. I love editing Wikipedia and making it a better sight. My ISP's DNS is extremely slow so it is extremely hard for me to edit without 1.1.1.1. I need this exemption because otherwise, I will not be able to edit Wikipedia and make it better. I hope that you will understand my situation and help me. >, thanks, --~~~~

You can use 1.1.1.1 DNS service without the VPN by selecting "1.1.1.1" and not "1.1.1.1 with WARP+" option in the settings of your 1.1.1.1 app. If your DNS is the only problem, you can simply use the 1.1.1.1 settings without the VPN. Is it sufficient or do you still need VPN after trying that options? — regards, Revi 01:11, 21 December 2019 (UTC)
(Even though your mobile OS will report you have connected to "VPN server", for simple 1.1.1.1 settings, it only routes DNS traffic to Cloudflare, and all other traffic doesn't route Cloudflare. WARP+ routes all traffic through Cloudflare.) — regards, Revi 01:12, 21 December 2019 (UTC)

API high limit requestor for PSS 9

PSS 9 is an anti-vandalism sysop bot on the Bulgarian Wikipedia. The bot requests globalallusers from Meta's API once per hour. Users with global rights should be “trusted” by the bot, even if it has no previous knowledge of them. Without a bot or apihighlimits-requestor flag, the API returns up to 500 usernames (agulimit). That's OK for now, but just barely—the current list is 467 usernames long. It's technically possible to ask for smaller subsets of users (with e.g. aguprefix, agufrom, aguto), but this will be more error-prone and likely more taxing on the API. An apihighlimits-requestor flag would likely (just as a bot flag) allow up to 5000 usernames to be returned with just one request. Initially, I asked for a bot flag on Meta, but MarcoAurelio was very kind to suggest that API high limit requestor may be more appropriate for the specific use case.

Thank you very much for considering this request.

Why cannot the bot request it from bgwiki? Ruslik (talk) 15:56, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
Ruslik, good question. That's actually pretty embarrassing—I think I remember not being able to send this query through https://bg.wikipedia.org/w/api.php, but it definitely works now. It's possible that I haven't looked at the right place or it might've been still enrolled. It's kind of strange that I now also get more than a 1000 usernames (if the 500 username limit were the cause in Meta, I thought I'd get exactly 500, not ~467, as I was getting earlier). Anyway, I definitely need to do some debugging.
Please disregard this request and sorry to have taken your time without much real reason (and thank your very much for the tip to check the API at bgwiki!).
Cheers,
