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.

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

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.

Requests for global IP block exemptionEdit

  Please be sure to follow the instructions below:
Your request might be rejected if you don't follow the instructions. Please review Global IP block exemption.

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

Global IP block exempt for AsharaDayneEdit

Hello, I come from China Mainland. I am an active editor of Chinese Wikipedia. For reasons known to all, I need a VPN to login in it currently. I need the permission for editing links on Wikidata. Thanks. --AsharaDayne (talk) 09:14, 8 February 2020 (UTC)

AsharaDayne, could you comment your English Wikipedia block, please? --Base (talk) 08:18, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
Base, I had some edit wars with other editors because I didn't know the rules at that time. But the reason why they banned me was unacceptableby, the administrator of English Wikipedia thought I was another user's dummy account according to en:Wikipedia:The duck test. AsharaDayne (talk) 11:16, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
@AsharaDayne: The block should be appealled to Unblock Ticket Request System. You should explicitly state whether you are the alleged sock master in your unblock request. (You are not banned.)--GZWDer (talk) 16:10, 12 February 2020 (UTC)
@GZWDer:, Thanks, I will try it. AsharaDayne (talk) 07:48, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Huelam987Edit

Hi all, Hello! I have VPN connections for privacy. I'd like to kindly ask you to add my username to the global exemption list because my minor edits are usually in good faith and don't violate Wiki policy. Thank you so much!! --Huelam987 (talk) 07:51, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

Why are you blocked in French Wikipedia? Ruslik (talk) 10:02, 12 February 2020 (UTC)
@Huelam987: Ruslik (talk) 19:38, 16 February 2020 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for ZhulgEdit

Hello, I'm an editor from China Mainland. Wikipedia is banned here, and I wish to edit Wikidata through proxy. Thanks!, --Zhulg

You are better to ask for a local exemption. Ruslik (talk) 10:03, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for DavidwhyEdit

Hello! I am from China Mainland. Because zh.wikipedia.org is blocked on the China GFW, I cannot access Wikipedia without an open proxy or a VPN. I had, and will, only edit when there is some small minor errors. So, if you could give me a global IP block exempt, I would be very grateful. Thanks, --DavidwhyDavidwhy (talk) 03:58, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

Davidwhy, do you intend to edit other wikis than zh.wikipedia.org? If not, a local Chinese Wikipedia exemption, zh:Wikipedia:IP封禁例外, would do you a better job than the global one. --Base (talk) 14:15, 16 February 2020 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for en:User:AhmadqatariEdit

I made several edits and am a new person and I created more than 20 accepted articles and good edits in this wiki, But the Palestinian Admin, in Arabic Wiki blocked me, I don't know why I do not know anyone here, and I have nothing to do with anyone Blocked really I want this account. I made a continuous effort in 10 days To adjust to Wikipedia and do good things I hope to unblock my account because I want to use it only in this wiki -Base , thanks, --Ahmadalqatari (talk) 08:55, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

@Ahmadalqatari: What is your first account? And we typically don't give blocked editors global rights. If you want a local meta IPBE, please be advised that I am reluctant to grant. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:15, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi Camouflaged Mirage I don't know any person Was in Wikipedia I am New User From Qatar And you can see my good edits and my articles this is my first account en:User:Ahmadqatari I made good edits in this wiki I hope to give me the exemption --Ahmadalqatari (talk) 09:22, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

@Ahmadalqatari: You said your account is blocked in arabic wiki (which now this account isn't blocked) and then you said you are a new user, I am a little confused. I get it, you are evading a global lock, please ask for unlock from the 1st account. Thanks --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:25, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
  Comment Not done, (IAR), let's not waste time here, account indeffed locally as self declared lock evasion. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:29, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

Dear Camouflaged Mirage I mean this is my first account en:User:Ahmadqatari I have created 25 acceptable Articles in Arabic Wikipedia My account has been blocked in all Wikipedia, I hope to give me the exemption did you see my articles and edits?

Please appeal for global unlock for your 1st account by emailing stewards wikimedia.org and stop creating any account here. I know you had some articles, but by evading global locks will not help you. Thanks much. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:39, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for HotowerEdit

I come from China Mainland,which means I need to use some special way to visit Wikipedia.I create a page and I find it wrong now.But the IP My proxy provided is not permitted to edit it.I don't want wrong information exist in wikipedia,so I need the permission.Thanks, --Hotower (talk) 11:25, 18 February 2020 (UTC)

You have very few global edits, and it seems like you may only intend to edit zhwiki. If that is the case, zh:Wikipedia:IP封禁例外 would serve you better. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 06:58, 18 February 2020 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for 3mnaPashkanEdit

Hi all, I'm an active Wikipedia member since October 2010, especially for the German Wikipedia! I during the last one and a half years I was quite often blocked and than again unblocked, maybe because I have VPN connections for privacy. I'd like to kindly ask you to add my username to the global exemption list, it's really bothering me that I have to make frequently breaks in my Wikipedia work. Thank you so much!! --3mnaPashkan (talk) 08:25, 18 February 2020 (UTC)

Global interface editor for SophivorusEdit

Not ending before 14 February 2020 22:41 UTC

Hi! I'd like to request a renewal of my global-interface-editor permission. The main reason is because I maintain the ProveIt gadget on 40+ wikis. I haven't done many changes in the last few months but I have done several changes earlier in 2019 and I plan to do more in 2020. Furthremore, I'm working on other scripts that I hope to be able to spread to other wikis and promote to gadgets if the communities agree. Thanks! Sophivorus (talk) 22:41, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

  •   Support See no issues. They have valid need for renewal. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:15, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

  •   Support No issues. Only comment is that don't we have to add an end date for this request? Seems missing. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:31, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support Supporting on the basis of being a global tool maintainer, but wouldn't support if they were looking to use the tools otherwise. No concerns, I trust they will use it where appropriate. ~riley (talk) 01:55, 18 February 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support Previous GIE without issues. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 06:52, 18 February 2020 (UTC)
