Them create abuse filter helpers global group was to gree all im users allover the world to fit see wetin dey for abuse filters wey them don mark as private and the abuse log entries wey match them.

the one wey dey maintain Abuse filter

Abuse filter maintainer is a global user group assigned by stewards that permits trusted users access to view, and where appropriate, edit abuse filters. This permission is enabled on every public Wikimedia wiki that shares access via CentralAuth and SUL, and is only to be used for non-controversial maintenance, or by request of the local community. Since users in this group can seriously disrupt Wikimedia wikis if used incorrectly, the abuse filter maintainer permission is only assigned to users who have a strong track record in maintaining abuse filters.

API high limit requestor

Users within the API high limit requestors global user group could have a higher API query limit.

This group offers the apihighlimits user right, enables a maximum 5000 results when querying via API. Normally, bots and sysops automatically have this right.

them CAPTCHA exemption

Main article: CAPTCHA exemptions

Users within the CAPTCHA exemptions global user group won't be prompted to enter CAPTCHAs by Extension:ConfirmEdit, for example when saving a page with new external links in it. This permission is only assigned to users that have demonstrated a need for it. Users may request access to captcha-exempt at Steward requests/Global permissions.

Accepted rationales for granting this right:

Global bot

Worldwide bots get bot access for all wiki them where worldwide bot them dey fit work are (look the list of wikithem). Worldwide bot them must follow the standard bot policy, wey allow the bot them to do only some things wey them mention say them dey free to do.

Them fit give user this permission if them get better experience for js/css/template code. Na only for non-controversial tasks them suppose use-am. As rule,them they give this permission for a fixed duration—up to one year.

Worldwide IP block exempt

The global IP block exemption na worldwide group wey dey allow users to jump global IP blocks and rangeblocks.

Worldwide rollback

Them Worldwide sysop

Them Global sysop na users wey get sysop access for different small wiki them, mainly to help fight vandalism when local administrator them no dey. Them dey appoint them after long discussion for Steward requests/Global permissions.


Them New Wikis importer

New wikis importers are users who regularly deal with the import of pages to the new wikis created per the language proposal policy, from their respective test wikis (Incubator, BetaWikiversity or OldWikisource). This is a merely technical routine task that should be done by experienced importers (see the log of past imports).

Double-step authentication tester

The double-step authentication tester group dey allow users make them fit use two-factor authentication even if them no belong to any of the groups wey dey normally fit use-am.


Stewards have complete access to the wiki interface, and perform technical implementation of community consensus, deal with emergencies, and intervene against crosswiki vandalism. Stewards are elected annually with participation from all wikis.


Them VRT permission agents

VRT permissions agents are users who have access to the permissions queues of the Wikimedia VRTS. The global group is used primarily for identification purposes, and the only user right it contains is the ability to activate two factor authentication.
