Requests for global rollback permissions

Global rollback for कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

नमस्ते! ज़ी, This is my second request. I am a member of SWMT wiki. And I'm using SWViewer and twinkle presence to remove vandalism.This tool would help me a lot doing cross-wiki vandalism fighting. I am trying my best to improve myself by taking your advice on the earlier request. If the members find my works positive, then keep your views. Thank you -- कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया (talk) 18:41, 6 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

  • Oppose Oppose For a lot of reasons. Firstly most of their crosswiki edits are without edit summaries and I have notified them about this[1] but it's still happening. Secondly, competency issue. They have deleted/restored lot of pages during their term as hi.wiktionary admin for no real reason (possibly testing mop on actual content)[2][3][4] and blocking IP indefinitely[5] (which is still blocked even after I told them twice about it). Third, inability to handle criticism. After being notified of their mistakes, instead of rectifying them, they started blaming me[6][7]. As GR is permission which is hard to monitor and requires trust and with their continuous mistakes and behaviour, I don't think that they can be trusted with this perm. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:54, 7 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, I'd like to request global rollback permission. I'm active member of the SWMT since January 2019, I patrol small wikis by using IRC and SWViewer (sometimes TwinkleGloba), I fight against cross-wiki vandalism and cross-wiki spam.

Global rollback for Renvoy

Hi! I would like to ask for global rollback right. I have been using SWViewer for few months, focusing mostly on Wikis in Slavic languages (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8). I already have rollback rights on Ukrainian and Polish wikis. Global rollback permission would help me massively in fight against vandalism. Thanks.--Renvoy (talk) 20:02, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

  • Oppose Oppose you've only got edits on about 70 wikis, with most of them just with one or two edits each, but I do see some reverts in vandalism. SHB2000 (talk | contibs) 23:54, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

  • Oppose Oppose not just yet due to the small edit matrix. Try again in three-four months after making heavy use of the metawiki abuse log and SWViewer to fight spam and vandalism. You will be likely to get GR if you have a demonstrable track record of fighting vandalism and spam on small/medium wikis and good judgement. All the best!

  • Support Support I've no concerns. I did a spotcheck of their vandalism-related reverts across multiple wikis and they were all fine. The editor has engaged in this activity for a few months. This is not a very high risk permission. Page deletion requests were also actioned. From my POV, this is an editor who understands what vandalism is, and wants to help, so I'm not really concerned. ProcrastinatingReader (talk) 16:09, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    ProcrastinatingReader, global rollback also includes autopatrol on all wikis. And, keep in mind that on enwiki "it is unlikely that editors with under 200 mainspace edits will have their request granted". Renvoy here has 94 undos in SWViewer, in multiple wikis. They may be all ok, but they just don't have enough experience for global rollback right now. --Ferien (talk) 19:30, 22 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    My criteria to evaluate user rights requests is mostly whether I think a person is trustworthy and will be able to competently use the tools requested (or at least be self-aware enough to know which parts they can do competently or not). My personal opinion here is that the editor is trustworthy and competent. I haven’t seen anything to dissuade me of that opinion. As far as enwiki goes, its guidelines don’t apply here, there are frequently exemptions to that guideline, and enwiki has much greater volume of easy rollbacks compared to small wikis.

Global IP block exempt for Boadu Emma

I have been user on Wikipedia for the last two years.

Recently, an IP address assigned to me by my internet service provider has been blocked from editing on Wikipedia.

Pls my phone's actual IP address is 10.60.35.4

This IP address (41.215.173.96) blocked by Wikipedia is not mine.

I understand the internet service providers (ISP) in Ghana do rotate customers IP addresses which I have no control over.

I don't have any open proxy software on my phone. My phone's VPN is disabled.

Pls exempt my user name from any IP address block.

Kindly exempt me from IP address blocks. The internet service provider is in control over the peer-to-peer proxy, web host so allow me to continue use it to make edits.

Dedicated ip 2.Share ip.Shared IP can host most or all sites on a webserver.

Global rename for Sai10ukazuki

Not ending before 20 August 2021 05:15 UTC

Hello everyone. I'm the editor and rollbacker of jawp.

The reason why I applied for this privilege is because there are not many Global renamers whose native language is Japanese. I have a lot of time on my hands, so I thought I'd help out in any way I can. I look forward to working with you.--Sai10ukazuki (talk) 05:15, 6 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Abuse filter helper for Daniuu

Not ending before 1 August 2021 11:52 UTC

Hi, I am Daniuu. I'm a sysop and abuse filter maintainer on the Dutch Wikipedia. I'd like to request the abuse filter helper right for two main reasons. First, I'd like to be able to read global private abuse filters (which are for example used to counter spam of all sorts) to be able to make maintenance on the spam filters on the Dutch Wikipedia (and to update and extend those where required). Second, I'd like to be able to read the abuse logs for private global filters. I'd like to use this permission to better fight spam on various projects (including smaller projects like nlwikibooks etc.). The permission would allow me to investigate the detected spam more thoroughly. If one would like to rise any additional questions, I'll be happy to answer them. Thanks, --Daniuu (talk) 11:52, 25 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
