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 -->
 |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.

:''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). While all input is welcome, there is a hard 80% support requirement for this role as per the global renamer policy.

Global rename for WikiFerEdit

Not ending before 2 August 2021 23:05 UTC

Hello everyone. I would like to have access to the global rename tool to help meet the excess of pending requests in my local project. On Portuguese Wikipedia, I have been an administrator since June 2015 and a bureaucrat since June 2020 (see the details of all rights). I have been an active and trusted user in this project for over ten years. Faced with all this experience, I want to continue helping my project voluntarily as global rename.

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. You may request Global IP block exemption via stewards wikimedia.org if you can not edit this page.
Please note: Global IP block exemption does NOT make one immune to locally-created blocks of any sort, only global blocks.
Instructions for making a request

Before requesting global IP block exemption, 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;
To request global IP block exemption
Copy the template below to the bottom of this section and explain why you need the access and why you're suitable. If needed, link to relevant discussions.
=== Global IP block exempt for [[User:{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}|{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}]] ===
{{sr-request
 |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
 |domain    = global<!--don't change this line-->
 |user name = {{subst:REVISIONUSER}}
}}
<Add an explanation here>, thanks, --~~~~

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 HIGH98Edit

As an inhabitant of Chinese mainland, it's inaccessible for me to browse Wiki without using VPN. Majoring in law, I am eager to edit some pages in Chinese language cause it can be obviously academically unreliable. thanks, --HIGH98 (talk) 10:41, 24 July 2021 (UTC)

@HIGH98: Though Stewards will make the decision, I highly recommend making some contributions on zhwiki before requesting here. Global IPBE will still be affected by zhwiki local IP block. EdwardAlexanderCrowley (talk) 05:31, 26 July 2021 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for LuciferianBotEdit

Bot hosted under a globally blocked IP range, I would like to ask for GIPBE for the bot account for editing with bot (under zhwiki's bot policies). Thanks with regards, --LuciferianTalk 08:59, 27 July 2021 (UTC)

(oathauth-enable) for user MichaEdit

Hello there. I had 2FA enabled years ago when I was still an admin on the German-language Wikipedia. Since recently a repairman had access to my mobile phone and there is the theoretical (though not very likely) possibility that the original QR code was read by him, I wanted to reinitialize 2FA for security. To do this, I disabled 2FA, but can't enable it again because I no longer have sysop permissions on a wiki. I am asking to be assigned the (oathauth-enable) so I can enable 2FA again. I am familiar with how to use 2FA. I have been using it for years on Wikipedia and elsewhere. Man thanks in advance. --Micha (talk) 23:20, 26 July 2021 (UTC)

@Micha: Hello, as a translation admin on Commons you can technically enable 2FA on your account. To do this, just go to Commons and enable it there. After that, all your accounts on all Wikimedia sites will be protected with 2FA. Let me know if you have any questions. stanglavine msg 01:39, 27 July 2021 (UTC)
That worked perfect. Thank you very much. --Micha (talk) 12:21, 27 July 2021 (UTC)

Abuse filter helper for DaniuuEdit

Not ending before 1 August 2021 11:52 UTC

Hi, I am Daniuu. I'm a sysop and abuse filter maintainer on the Dutch Wikipedia. I'd like to request the abuse filter helper right for two main reasons. First, I'd like to be able to read global private abuse filters (which are for example used to counter spam of all sorts) to be able to make maintenance on the spam filters on the Dutch Wikipedia (and to update and extend those where required). Second, I'd like to be able to read the abuse logs for private global filters. I'd like to use this permission to better fight spam on various projects (including smaller projects like nlwikibooks etc.). The permission would allow me to investigate the detected spam more thoroughly. If one would like to rise any additional questions, I'll be happy to answer them. Thanks, --Daniuu (talk) 11:52, 25 July 2021 (UTC)

  •   Weak support Somewhat low edit count, but still a very trustworthy user. Regardless, this user meets my threshold for support. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 01:26, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
  •   Weak support admin on a content project and has updated production AF's; minimal x-wiki engagements. — xaosflux Talk 14:29, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
  •   Support Trustworthy user involved with abuse filters. — csc-1 17:39, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
