Global rollback for Rehman

As of some time now, I have been working on multiple wikis in relation to updating image files and associated edits, and I expect to increase my activity. Thus to avoid any possible backlog on those wikis, I would like to have global Autoreviewer/Autopatroller rights. I don't know how far this is possible (or if this is the right place to post this rights), but it will help other editors. I currently have Rollbacker, Autoreviewer and Reviewer rights on the English Wikipedia and Commons, the two wikis I am active in. Thanks. Rehman(+) 15:33, 19 September 2010 (UTC)[]

The global rollback group has autopatrol rights, but as Autoreview isn't available on Meta, the right was not added to the global group. This gives rise to two discussions:
  1. Should Rehman be given either global rollback or a new right, and,
  2. Should we add the autoreview flag to the global rollback group?
My opinion, personally, is that if there's consensus to do so that Rehman should ask for global rollback and the autoreview right be added to global rollbackers. As the extension isn't listed on Meta, I might suggest adding it to the global group either via enwiki (where it would get the greatest amount of transparency to the action) or test.wikipedia (and make non-Meta-available rights added there when needed.)

I don't think a global group for autoreview will be a good idea, there are to many policies, there is no way a user can use that right and don't break a local policy. Huib talk Abigor 16:17, 19 September 2010 (UTC)[]
Hi. Will it be possible if I move my request to the Rollback feature? Which covers Autoreviewer as said above? Rehman(+) 16:29, 19 September 2010 (UTC)[]

It covers autopatrol, but not autroview (from extension FlaggedRevs), which are totally differnt. Btw, In my opinion global bots should have autoreview and global rollbackers should get movestable (to stay in synch with autoconfirmed) - Hoo man 19:21, 19 September 2010 (UTC)[]

I threw together a Q&D "global reviewer" group and checked it on test.wikipedia (see talkpage). It frankly doesn't work all that well, missing a couple key components, and that's not even considering any local policy issues that may be in place. My suggestion would be to just request global rollback instead and forget about the review-related flags altogether. Kylu 22:11, 19 September 2010 (UTC)[]

For perspective: en.WN deliberately withholds the reviewer bit from the Commons delinker bot, in order to guarantee that when it runs, each delinking is flagged for manual attention. --Pi zero 00:01, 20 September 2010 (UTC)[]

Moved section to Rollback requests per Kylu's suggestion above. Rehman(+) 00:18, 20 September 2010 (UTC)[]

Global sysop for Quentinv57

Hello everybody. As an active SWMT member, I'd like to request global sysop rights, which can be very usefull to delete pages and potentialy ban vandals when patrolling small wikis.

I'm sysop and bureaucrat on frwiktionary, I've been sysop on frwikibooks and on lbwikionary and I have a sysop flagged bot. So I think I know how to deal with sysop tools ;). Nevertheless, I promise you I'll use my tools only if I'm pretty sure it's a case of vandalism.

Thanks by advance -- Quentinv57 19:18, 27 September 2010 (UTC)[]

  • Note: Some people opposed your recent candidature for global rollback. I said there that rollback is definitely no big deal, adminship shouldn't neither but in fact adminship could easier be misused and can cause damage. What do you think changed since last month in your behaviour? Do you think that they would not oppose you now? Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 12:02, 30 September 2010 (UTC)[]
    To be honest, I don't think I really changed this last month, at least concerning RC patrolling. But I'm sure that the way I patrol today has nothing to do with the one I patrolled ten months ago. I understand the doubts expressed by guillom, but I really think that they're not up-to-date. Please have a look at my global activity since I've been elected as a global rollbacker and check my sysop operations to give me some feedback. Thanks -- Quentinv57 18:43, 30 September 2010 (UTC)[]
