Steward requests/Global permissions

(Redirected from SRGRN)
Shortcut:
SRGP
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 helper and 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 permissions

edit
  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: You have sufficient activity to meet the requirements to be allocated the global rollback flag

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 {{subst:u|{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}}} ===
{{sr-request

 |domain    = global <!-- don't change this line -->
 |user name = {{subst:REVISIONUSER}} <!-- don't change this line unless you're nominating another user -->
}}
::''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 (with rare exceptions , 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 exemption

Global IP block exempt for Butcher2021

Editing from Wikipedia-hostile territory, thanks, --Butcher2021 (talk) 11:41, 4 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Global IP block exempt for Ternera

edit

Hello, I would like to request global IP block exemption for my account. I've been doing cross-wiki anti-vandalism work and running into blocks on Wikivoyage projects in particular, saying my IP is blocked (this happens when I try to log into these projects to revert vandalism). My ISP uses CGNAT, so I may appear to have the same IP address as others and my IP may be flagged as spam in some cases. I already have IP block exemption on my home wiki, but it would be helpful to have it globally for the other small projects that I am effected by. Thanks, --Ternera (talk) 20:26, 10 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, are you affected by a global block or are the blocks just regular local blocks? If it is the latter, global IP block exempt will not help you as it will only exempt you from global blocks. If you are affected by local blocks, you need to request a local IP block exemption. EPIC (talk) 20:31, 10 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I don't believe they are local blocks because I've had it happen fairly often.. I've definitely seen it on the Wikivoyage projects, but those are definitely not the only ones that I've been effected on - there are other small wiki projects where my IP is blocked. I have previously made a mobile hotspot from my phone to get around it. I would prefer to not use my phone's mobile data though. Ternera (talk) 21:09, 10 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Global IP block exempt for Rovssilon

edit

I am a user of Wikidata from mainland China. Due to the GFW, I must now use a proxy to access Wikidata, but my proxy is blocked, preventing me from editing Wikidata pages. Therefore, I hope the handling staff can grant me an Global IP block exemption to avoid being affected. Here is the reason for my block:

"Your IP address is in a range that has been blocked on all Wikimedia Foundation wikis.

The block was made by ‪EPIC‬. The reason given is Open proxy/Webhost: See the help page if you are affected.

  • Start of block: 11:08, 26 May 2024
  • Expiry of block: 11:08, 26 May 2025

Your current IP address is 172.233.93.228. The blocked range is 172.233.80.0/20."

Thanks. --Rovssilon (talk) 11:35, 4 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Rovssilon: Hello, you may follow the instruction to apply Wikidata local IPBE d:Wikidata:IP_block_exemption#Used_for_anonymous_proxy_editing. Thanks. SCP-2000 03:58, 13 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Global IP block exempt for Huggums537

edit

Hello, I currently have GIPBE/IPBE on enWiki enabled for a period of one year. They will soon expire so I am proactively making my request to get permanent status for my GIPBE/IPBE rights since I still travel for work and do not ever expect that to change any time soon. Also, the privacy issues are still also always an ongoing concern for me although I understand that is not a great factor in the decision here. @Base granted me the temporary rights and @Vermont participated in previous discussion as well as @AmandaNP who did not substantially participate other than being aware of it enough to close it. Thank you. Huggums537 (talk) 00:12, 12 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Also, I seem to recall I was not very forthcoming with my personal information when I was getting my GIPBE established a year ago (as is usually customary for me), but since I have already shared over at GeneralNotability#IPBE_permanent_status by posting this comment to help get the expiry lifted, I thought I might as well share it all here too. Thanks. Huggums537 (talk) 17:34, 12 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
