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.

Global rollback and global interface editor requests require no fewer than 5 days of discussion while abuse filter maintainer requests require no fewer than 7 days. Global renamer and global sysop requests require no fewer than 2 weeks of discussion. 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;

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

:''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 rename for CabayiEdit

Not ending before 8 August 2020 20:14 UTC

I'm an enwiki admin frequently working in blocking & unblocking. With global renamer I would help reduce the rename backlogs and contribute to a speedier block review process, easing the burden on other global renamers. Thanks for your consideration, Cabayi (talk) 20:14, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

Global rename for AkhiljaxxnEdit

Not ending before 19 August 2020 05:52 UTC

I am an active administrator on the Malayalam wiki and an active editor on English Wikipedia. According to mlwiki Username policy, usernames that are misleading, promotional, and disruptive or offensive will be blocked unless their usernames are changed. However, there are no active users who have global rename flags on mlwiki. Also, some new users don’t know how to come here to request a username change and subsequently, they abandon their accounts. I have read comprehend the policies above and I think I can handle the permission. If I'm given permission I hope I can help here as well.- Akhiljaxxn (talk) 05:52, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

  •   Strong support Very active administrator on mlwiki. Competent and trusted user.--Path slopu (talk) 11:59, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
  •   Strong support Trusted user. Adithyak1997 (talk) 05:52, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
  •   Oppose With history of block for sock-puppetry on English Wikipedia and zero experience in renaming related areas, I can not trust user to handle request on enwiki. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 10:43, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
The sock-puppetry violation was three year ago. I was blocked because I shared my wifi network with one of my friend (to vote keep) when the page that I authored was nominated for deletion. To be honest, I wasn't aware this was not allowed untill a SPI investigation was initiated against me. I learned the rules during that investigation. I gave my reason and promised them that there won't be such action from my side. They understood my reasoning and accepted my promise so they unblocked me. As far as experience in renaming related area is concerned, even if I didnt partcipated in any such discussion, I have Wikipedia:Changing username/Simple on my watchlist and I regulary watch the procedure . I'm well aware of the global rename policy also. If my three year old block is still an issue for granting this right, I'll politely withdraw my request. Akhiljaxxn (talk) 18:57, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
My opinion is not purely based on that 3-year-old block but on the issues such as competency mentioned in that SPI. This recent example of canvassing strengthen my doubt about the competency issue even more.
Other than that I saw that you were also blocked on mlwiki for 3RR violation years ago but I can still find frequent misuse of rollback after that block such as this and this, this and this too.
So I think this position is more about trust and these issues I mentioned does not establish that trust. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:40, 7 August 2020 (UTC)
  •   Strong support Trusted experienced user with good administrator works in Malayalam wiki. He is active in both Malayalam and English Wikipedia and shown positive aspirations to contribute to the Wikimedia projects. I believe in his capabilities and wishing him the best.-❙❚❚❙❙ JinOy ❚❙❚❙❙ 12:20, 7 August 2020 (UTC)
  •   Strong oppose as per 1997kb. Global rename is arguably one of the more powerful tools in this arsenal and the concerns about competency concern me greatly. If editors in mlwiki don't know how to request here, you can guide them or write up something similar to en:WP:CHUS. You don't need the tools for that. Praxidicae (talk) 15:43, 7 August 2020 (UTC)
Please close and archive this. Thanks.- Akhiljaxxn (talk) 19:42, 7 August 2020 (UTC)
