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.

  2. You are logged in on this wiki, and the account is part of your global account;

 |domain    = global<!--don't change this line-->

The request will be approved if there is demonstrated need for the permission, such as bypassing a global block from someone who is not the intended target.

Global IP block exempt for DaclementsEdit

I've been an occasional contributor for many years on Wikipedia, but lately owing to my use of VPNs, I have found myself in blocked IP ranges. I kindly request that I be made exempt from these restrictions. I invite you to view my very benign and helpful edits, thanks, --Daclements (talk) 19:39, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

You are more likely in need of a local IP block exemption in English Wikipedia. Ruslik (talk) 19:52, 5 October 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for MartialLEAVESEdit

Per user request in zh-wikipedia Telegram Group, thanks. --Streetdeck Talk) 09:23, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

I have not seen this user have a more active cross-wiki editing. Catherine Laurence (discussion) 09:34, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

@Catherine Laurence: I don't think that cross-wiki activities are essential especially when the requesting user is in China and is blocked for using WMF without VPNs. Znotch190711 (talk) 04:33, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
@Znotch190711: They can bypass the global ban by requesting for a local ipbe. I don't think it's worth giving gipbe to users who don't have a lot of cross wiki activities, especially those with very few editors. --Catherine Laurence (discussion) 04:40, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
@Catherine Laurence: All right, but does zhwiki have a clear IPBE rule? Znotch190711 (talk) 04:41, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
You can see w:zh:WP:IPBE. Catherine Laurence (discussion) 04:45, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Clear enough, I understand Chinese, thanks. Znotch190711 (talk) 11:43, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for TwilightFWREdit

  • I'm living in mainland China,and I don't have a reliable proxy to reach wiki so I need to switch them so often.At the same time,all of them are banned with their IP address.So I want to request this permission.Thx., thanks
Super Super Speedy Strongest Support and I am surprised that there is no bot to automatically grant GIPBE to Mainland China users once they are registered. Znotch190711 (talk) 04:31, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
  Not done I'm sorry but I don't see a need for a global IPBE at this time. You have 11 edits at zhwiki and some others here. By the looks of it, you can edit without problems in here and on zhwiki you're assigned a local IPBE which should exempt you from both global and local IP blocks. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:11, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Baris6161TURKEdit

Can you access me from Wikipedia? I cannot join because I'm living in Turkey. I want to translate them. Thank you. --Baris6161TURK (talk) 15:24, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
