Requests for global rollback permissions

Global rollback for Em-mustapha

Not ending before 12 September 2021 07:08 UTC

Hi all, hope this finds you well. I would like to request global rollback access on my account, it will help ease my counter-vandalism activities on Wikimedia projects. Yes! I was previously opposed due to lack of crosswiki activity. Thanks Em-mustapha talk 07:08, 7 September 2021 (UTC)

Prior request is at Steward requests/Global permissions/2021-06#Global rollback for M-Mustapha --Ts12rAc (talk) 07:41, 7 September 2021 (UTC)

Global rollback for Styyx

Not ending before 18 September 2021 12:56 UTC

Hello all! I'm mostly active on the Turkish Wikipedia, where I have patroller rights. I've been monitoring small (and some custom) wikis with SWViewer in the recent months, mostly reverting vandalism on simplewiki, nlwiki and Turkic projects, but certainly not limited to only these. GR will help a lot with combating xwiki vandalism. Thanks! ~StyyxTalk? ^-^ 12:56, 13 September 2021 (UTC)

  • BA candidate.svg Weak oppose There are a lot of great wikis on top of contributions and few on SW. Finally, you make more contributions where you are already a rollbacker. You can use SWViewer, but if it's not to patrol the SWs and only do the usual projects, I don't see the point. In addition, your SW contributions are quite recent. —Eihel (talk) 11:33, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
I didn't fully get what you meant, but I'll try to respond. I've indeed used SWV for patrolling on trwiki. Trwiki accounts for more than 95% of the 1100 rollbacks I've done with SWV. However, I also have almost 700 undo's from wikis where I don't have rollback, like nlwiki, azwiki, tkwiki, afwiki and more, for a few months now. Is it better to request rollback separately on all of these projects or to request for GR? ~StyyxTalk? ^-^ 13:07, 17 September 2021 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done There is sufficient consensus to promote Styyx to a global rollbacker. Sincerely, --Martin Urbanec (talk) 13:02, 18 September 2021 (UTC)

I frequently edit while not at home, so at cafes and other public places with public wifi, so use my VPN provider when connected to these not super-secure networks. Many VPN IPs, maybe most of them, are blocked. I had local block exemptions for en.wikipedia and wikidata which just expired Sep 9, but I also edit commons and got hit there by blocks too. It's not inconceivable I might want to contribute to other wiki projects in the future, so I am requesting the global IP block exemption permission as a less piecemeal approach. Thank you for your consideration and let me know if I can provide more info if helpful. —Joeyconnick (talk) 16:45, 11 September 2021 (UTC)

Global rename for Mykola7

Not ending before 28 September 2021 21:07 UTC

Hello! I'd like to request global rename permissions to help users in renaming their accounts. I'm mostly active on the Ukrainian Wikipedia, and I'm active sysop and checkuser there. I am an active fighter against vandalism and often come across names violating our local and global policies, so these rights will help me to fight vandalism more effectively. --Mykola7 (talk) 21:07, 14 September 2021 (UTC)

  • Symbol strong support vote.svg Strong support Mykola7 is not only a sysop but a CU on ukwiki. There's no reason why not, not to forget, it'll be nice to have more renamers who know Cyrillic. SHB2000 (talk | contibs) 22:13, 14 September 2021 (UTC)
    Just as a note, saying "know Cyrillic" is like "know the Latin alphabet". If you don't know the exact language something is written in, it usually doesn't help. ~~~~

    Although unless you know a language from Northeastern Europe + Mongolian, most people wouldn't know Cyrillic unlike the Latin script where it's known even by speakers who don't speak a language which uses Latin script. SHB2000 (talk | contibs) 02:19, 19 September 2021 (UTC)

  • Hello @Mykola7. May I ask, how do you think being able to rename users would help you to fight vandalism more effectively? Thanks, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 20:43, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
    MarcoAurelio, hello. We have a very active vandal in UkWiki, he creates accounts similar to active users with various obscenities in the name, so the ability to rename will help remove these obscenities after blocking. --Mykola7 (talk) 20:59, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
    @Mykola7: Thanks for your reply. I am sorry but you should never rename an account with an abusive username as it only makes things worse. The abusive username will be replicated in the rename logs of ukwiki, Meta-Wiki and the whole lot of different wikis where the account ever registered. It'll also show up in page move logs if user and/or user talk pages were moved in the process; hence the abusive username will be more and more exposed and therefore more difficult to hide. Blatant attack usernames intended to denigrate, threaten, libel, insult, or harass someone should be suppressed instead either locally or globally. Further, forcibly renaming someone's account without their consent is not allowed by the global rename policy but for usurpations if they meet the requirements (or there's consent from the account). I am sorry but I Oppose cannot support this request if you want to use them for the stated anti-vandalism purpose. Sorry,(opposition withdrawn after Mykola7's assurance and understanding that renaming is not to be used on vandal accounts —MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:17, 18 September 2021 (UTC))MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:25, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
    MarcoAurelio, I meant more if the vandal went beyond one wiki, if only in one, then the usual concealment is enough. All the same, not only for such I need these rights, first of all for the help in renaming. --Mykola7 (talk) 21:31, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
    Hello. I am sorry but it does not matter if the vandal is local or multi-wiki, the result is always the same: once you rename an account the abusive username will be spread all over the individual wiki logs and histories, and the Meta-Wiki global rename log. Trying to hide that later can become a real headache as there's no way to do so in one click. The more wikis the vandal is registered, the worse the problem becomes. Global rename is not a tool to fight vandalism. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:39, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
    I'm understood. Thanks. --Mykola7 (talk) 21:46, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
    @Mykola7 Can I get an assurance that you won't use the rename tool ever for this purpose. If so I will have no issues supporting you. Thank you for volunteering anyway. Meet my usual criterion that a sysop on a large wiki should be granted this right. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:23, 16 September 2021 (UTC)
