Requests and proposals Steward requests (Global permissions) latest archive
This page hosts requests for global permissions. To make a request, read the relevant policy (global rollback, global sysop, global rename, …) and make a request below. Explain why membership is needed for that group, and detail prior experience or qualifications.

This is not a vote and any active Wikimedia editor may participate in the discussion.

Successful global rollback requests require no fewer than 5 days of discussion, while successful global renamer and global sysop discussions require no fewer than 2 weeks. For requests that are unlikely to pass under any circumstances, they may be closed by a steward without further discussion (after a reasonable amount of input).

Requests for global rollback permissionsEdit

  Please be sure to follow the instructions below:
Your request might be rejected if you don't follow the instructions, and not doing so would reflect poorly on your suitability.
Please also review the Global rollback policy.
Instructions for making a request

Before requesting, make sure that:

  1. You have sufficient activity to meet the requirements to be allocated the global rollback flag
  2. You have a global account;
  3. You are logged in on this wiki, and the account is part of your global account;
To make a request
Copy the template below to the bottom of this section and explain of why you need the access and why you're suitable.
=== Global rollback for [[User:Foo|Foo]] ===
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!-- don't change this line -->
 |domain    = global <!-- don't change this line -->
 |user name = Username
}}
::''Not ending before {{subst:#time:j F Y H:i|+5 days}} UTC''

The request will be approved if consensus to do so exists after a period of consideration of no less than 5 days (other than requests that are unlikely to pass under any circumstances, no other exceptions are allowed, no matter how obvious the result may seem). This is not a vote, and all input is welcome. Stewards will determine whether consensus exists; when doing so it is likely that the weight given to the input of those involved in cross-wiki work will be most influential.

Requests for global sysop permissionsEdit

  Please be sure to follow the instructions below:
Your request might be rejected if you don't follow the instructions, and not doing so would reflect poorly on your suitability.
Please also review the Global sysops policy.
Stewards
When you give someone global sysop rights, please list them on Users with global sysop access and ask them to subscribe to the global sysops mailing list.
Instructions for making a request

Before requesting, make sure that:

  1. You have a global account;
  2. You are logged in on this wiki, and the account is part of your global account;
To make a request
Copy the template below to the bottom of this section and explain of why you need the access and why you're suitable. If you previously requested that right, please add a link to the previous discussion(s).
=== Global sysop for [[User:Foo|Foo]] ===
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!-- don't change this line -->
 |domain    = global <!-- don't change this line -->
 |user name = Username
}}
:''Not ending before {{subst:#time:j F Y H:i|+2 week}} UTC''

The request will be approved if consensus to do so exists after a period of consideration of no less than two weeks (no exceptions are allowed no matter how obvious the result may seem). This is not a vote, and all input is welcome. Stewards will determine whether consensus exists; when doing so it is likely that the weight given to the input of those involved in cross-wiki work will be most influential. Please note: Since 2019 all global sysops are required to have two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled.

Global sysop for ~rileyEdit

Not ending before 23 January 2020 00:21 UTC

Hey all; Riley here. This may seem premature in the sense that I actively have an open meta RfA, however, I have had quite an afternoon where global sysop would have been a major benefit. Let me walk you through my afternoon dealing with one LTA:

  • Eight IPs vandalizing seven different wikis (af.wq, af.wb, af.wikt, az.wikt, az.wq, az.wb, meta) - six of these are GS wikis.
  • 371 edits rollbacked, 188 pages requested deletion.
  • Triggered abuse filter while attempting to remove vandalism on each

While this is far from an average day, global sysop would benefit me in my work on the SWMT by being able to block these LTAs, nuke the pages, bypass abuse filters and most importantly, increase response time while decreasing the need for steward involvement (although in this case, these IPs ultimately needed steward intervention). While this LTA will have chilled out by the time this request closes, I would like to have the tools to be helpful and this is the next logical step towards that.

For those who do not know my background, I am an active member of the SWMT and live on IRC in #wikimedia-stewards where I spend most of my time talking to StewardBot whether it be through @steward or editing SRG. I am a global rollback and an admin on a content project (Commons). For those interested, I live in the UTC+-8 which would also be beneficial.

I meet the global sysops policy in terms of userpage requirements and having 2FA enabled. ~riley (talk) 00:21, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

At the time of the request, I had 2FA enabled. To be completely transparent; I disabled it for a period of time to run mass undeletions using pywikibot on Commons as it was quicker than setting up a bot password and I had yet to be granted the GS permissions. 2FA is now re-enabled and I have setup a bot password for future use to ensure I comply with the policy once I am a GS. ~riley (talk) 00:09, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

Global rename for Ritchie333Edit

Not ending before 29 January 2020 18:14 UTC

I am a longstanding (if sometimes controversial) admin on the English Wikipedia, and sometimes deal with unblock requests for username changes. I have recently advised somebody to contact a global renamer as part of the procedure to unblock them, and having seen a protege of mine acquire global renamer rights here, it seems like a reasonable idea to request them myself. I have 2FA enabled. Ritchie333 (talk) 18:14, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

  •   Neutral Not convinced - are there a lack of global renamers on the English Wikipedia? Not sure from your request that we need another member. Leaderboard (talk) 21:57, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
    Enwiki represents ~30% of the users, edits, etc from across the Wikimedia network. Their practice of a) having a relatively restrictive username policy and b) requiring users to change their name as a condition of unblocking means that there is always work for renamers there, particularly admins who are actively involved in answering unblock requests. – Ajraddatz (talk) 23:25, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support trusted user, fair rationale. – Ajraddatz (talk) 23:25, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support Compelled by the username policy for enwp, which I am quite unhappy with (frankly their rationale is what almost every enwp sysop gave when they came here to ask for this right). Per my previous supports, one more enwp sysop given the right and uses them is one less work for renamers who homewiki isn't enwiki. This seems valid and fair. I will think we might as well bundle Global rename with enwp +sysop as there are almost certainly these arguments raised per Ajraddatz which justify and make there a consensus to grant the request despite arguments like Leaderboard ones which are valid. Hope Ritchie333 will take it slow and take advice from more experienced renamers when in doubt. Just a sidenote, I also don't know why a username NotButtigieg can be seen as famous / impersonation of Pete Buttigieg, it's not. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:04, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support per Ajraddatz--MrJaroslavik (talk) 10:23, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support Ritchie is a trusted user with justifiable use case for this permission. Although they likely won't use it often, I don't think we should pretend there is a limited number of global renamer spots; I am happy to support most experienced enwiki admins for this right in relation to their use as part of unblock requests due to the enwiki username policy. ~riley (talk) 17:25, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support Sufficient trust, defined need, and little/no possibility of abuse. Vermont (talk) 17:29, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support Trusted enough, no reason not to. --Kostas20142 (talk) 17:38, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support obviously. Sysop on our largest project who is trusted by the community. He would be a welcome asset to the team. Additionally, Ritchie333's unmatched dedication to content work amongst the current admin corps on en.wiki means he will bring a much needed perspective to meta and mailing list discussions of someone who is actually on the ground doing the work that all of us--regardless of the language group-- are here to support.

Global IP block exempt for 奧田95Edit

I want to edit Wikipedia via proxy,please unblock this account.I don't spamming.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 奧田95 (talk)

Global IP block exempt for チルノEdit

I am a zh Wikipedia editor and I edit other WMF wikis from time to time. Chinese government has blocked across dozens of WMF projects nowadays. So I have to get over the burden with proxies, but I also happen to be banned from contributing because of blocked open proxies. I need to edit Wikidata, Wiki Commons, Meta and I may do minor changes on other liguistic Wikipedias. I think I need a GIPBE first since I don't contribute to other WMF wikis so often that I have to request IPBE per site.--チルノ (talk) 15:59, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for TongcyDaiEdit

I am an editor in zh-wikipedia and other Wikimedia proects. I usually make my contributions through public network, and thus my IP address is blocked on all Wikimedia wikis all the time. As a result, I think I need GIPBE so I can edit normally. I have sufficient experience on editing and I can make sure I will use this right appropriately. --TongcyDai (talk) 08:48, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
