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.

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

 |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.

Requests for global rename permissionsEdit

Global rename for Go-TsumarokiEdit

Since starting on Wikipedia I've always valued the hard work the Wikipedians with certain permissions do. I've been striving for this goal for the past month in hope that I may one day, reach the point of becoming a bureaucrat, and I believe it starts today. I believe I should have these rights as it is a step forward in the process of becoming a respected member of the community. I will put hard work into the process, and taking breaks when needed. I will hold myself accountable for my actions and become a valued aspect of the community. Thank you, Go-Tsumaroki (talk) 22:51, 24 September 2020 (UTC)

Not ending before 8 October 2020 22:51 UTC
  •   Strong oppose Most of your contributions were in early days. The number of contributions on your user pages is around 150. The total contributions on your home wiki are 774 for now. The last 500 contributions have been made almost in the last 1 week. I can't see that you understand the rules (especially: username policy) from your contributions for now. It's too early for global renamer. --Uncitoyentalk 23:19, 24 September 2020 (UTC)
  •   Strong oppose outside of this request on meta and deleted images on commons, only 776 edits made, all on enwiki. I've been striving for this goal for the past month in hope that I may one day, reach the point of becoming a bureaucrat, and I believe it starts today. I believe I should have these rights as it is a step forward in the process of becoming a respected member of the community. - this is hat collecting. --DannyS712 (talk) 23:28, 24 September 2020 (UTC)
  •   Strong oppose, sorry but your comment makes it seem like your goal on Wikipedia is to gain different permissions. You lack edits on which I could base my judgment, you also lack cross-wiki experience. Cheers! Nadzik (talk) 10:50, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
  • In case it isn't clear, Wikimedia projects have a very different culture than most workplaces. Striving to get the biggest hats (userrights) is often looked down upon, and for good reason. We're here to collate and curate free knowledge, not improve personal standing. Rights are given to people whose work requires it, and who are trusted by their community with those userrights. It isn't a form of promotion or path to an ultimate end, other than the ultimate end of the sum of all human knowledge. Regards, Vermont (talk) 10:56, 25 September 2020 (UTC)

ADD Global IP block exempt for Marek TorbaEdit

Hi, I would like to ask for an IP block exemption for the abovementioned user. As noted on his pl.wiki userpage, this is a staffer of a Polish museum (Wawel Royal Castle in Cracow), taking a part in the most recent GLAM partnership of Wikimedia Polska. The global IP block removal is vital for e.g. Commons work and upload. On behalf of the WMPL, aegis maelstrom δ 19:14, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
