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.
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;
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. If you previously requested that right, please add a link to the previous discussion(s).

 |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.

Global sysop for TurkmenEdit

Not ending before 18 September 2019 20:35 UTC

Stalktoy

Hello. I'am a global rollbacker, and a sysop on four Azerbaijani Wikiprojects (Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikisource, Wikiquote) and Turkmen Wikipedia.

Sometimes after reverting vandal edits and add the "delete" template vandals don't stop vandalizing. They remove the "delete" template from the page, continue vandalizing, or create unnecessary pages. I think this right will be effective for me to combat such edits carried out by users/IPs in Wikipedias with inactive sysops, or for someone who is not a sysop. Thank you!--Turkmen talk 20:35, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Noting the requester's recent unsuccessful global sysop request here. Vermont (talk) 20:42, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support sure. I don't think you'll abuse it. We don't require perfection, and you've been patient and not deterred in the past by setbacks. That is generally a good sign. TonyBallioni (talk) 01:41, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support very active with the SWMT, and past actions look good. And lots of sysop experience elsewhere. – Ajraddatz (talk) 01:52, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support He is definitely ready for the role now. Jianhui67 talkcontribs 12:35, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support I've seen Turkmen around quite frequently using global rollback in SWMT work. They've been doing very well, and have been very useful in combating xwiki vandalism. I was a bit hesitant due to the very recent unsuccessful request and that they neglected to mention it here, however that does not detract from my trust that they would use the rights well. Thanks for volunteering, Vermont (talk) 12:41, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Yeah, looks like it looks that way. To be honest, I just wanted to let Turkmen know that they have convienced me since I commented against last time and this is the reason I commented here and I am in favour this time. Everyone has already mentioned what I was about to say and those are the things I saw during this period. This is not a vote so please ignore my comment if it is not helpful. And Turkmen keep up the good work :) --BRP ever 05:04, 6 September 2019 (UTC)
    • It's not an AFD discussion, and we don't need to explain much to support for such obvious candidate. I just saw the similar comment and laughed. :) Masum Reza 16:47, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

    @Rschen7754: In my previous nomination, the community thought it was early for a global sysop. So I continued to work and re-applied. Generally, I have the same reasons in each of the 2 discussions.--Turkmen talk 11:07, 6 September 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for PeabodybEdit

I am in Mainland China. As everyone knows, all of what we do here is blocked here and the only way to access it is to use a VPN. I have nothing more to add other than to say if you unblock me, you're doing a small part in what is also a big role in allowing those like me who otherwise could not access this great Wikimedia project and service, which serves ALL the public, to still have a valued place at the table. Thank you.

Global IP block exempt for longway22Edit

I am sorry for ask for the Global IP block exempt at the moment that the nice normals of Mainland wouldn't have more chance to access the wonderful Wikimedia project and service, and the authorities is poisning project and service by the trolls and other shameful tools, that anyone have a real great soul won't have a blind eye on this.I am a digital civilian in the key era that different from any other moment of the past,stand by folks facing the chaos of the darknest degree, and need support from the Communtiy immediately .It will be great honour to keep have contributions in this project with assistance from the Communtiy.Thanks for reading. --Longway22 (talk) 08:35, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

  • I can see you are not granted IPBE at zhwiki, please advise whether you need that or not since GIPBE cannot bypass local block.--Hamish 17:10, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • I 've got the IPBE,could I carry the GIPBE as well? --Longway22 (talk) 09:27, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Affirmative, but it should be decided by a steward. --Hamish 16:55, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Chinen Sieru Edit

I am a user from Mainland China. Because of the goverment policy, I have to use VPN to access Wikipedia(zh and zh-yue). I have already edited something article. But I can't do it anymore since you have blocked the IP of my VPN. So I am applying for the global IP block exemption. Your early answer will be appreciated. Thank you. --Chinen Sieru (talk) 09:03, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for 淺藍雪Edit

I am a sysop on Chinese Wikiepdia and currently staying in China, need GIPBE for editing other Wikipedia pages and linking local pages to Wikidata. Thanks.--淺藍雪 (talk) 10:56, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Global rename for DutchTomEdit

Not ending before 14 September 2019 21:35 UTC

Hello my name is Tom, as you can see I am active as DutchTom on Wikimedia projects. I am a sysop on Dutch Wikipedia and OTRS-volunteer. On our wiki we (almost daily) see new users with usernames that don't match our username policy. Most of the time these users get blocked because they use a companies name or a domainname as their username. When users get blocked they maybe get demotivated and they stop contributing. I would like to help them getting motivated again by helping them in the whole process of requesting a brand new username. I also would like to help users who once have chosen a name they don't want to use anymore. I can write down more reasons but I think you get the point. Besides my drive to help people, we only have one native Dutch global renamer at this moment. I think a bit help from another native Dutchie is more then welcome. What do you think? DutchTom (talk) 21:35, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

Global rename for SimmeDEdit

Not ending before 24 September 2019 07:29 UTC

Hello, my name is SimmeD. I'm an active sysop on Danish Wikipedia. I'm a former OTRS-volunteer for the Danish queue. As of right now we do not have any GR that have danish as native language, and I would like to be able to help with name changes for our Danish speaking wiki's. I'm able to speak Danish, English, Swedish, Norwegian and a small amount of German. I'm a semi active user since I have my study, but just because I'm not editing doesn't mean I'm inactive. I'm active at IRC, and perform administrative tasks on the wiki's I'm sysop on. Then I also just time on Commons as a file-mover. But all in all, it would be great to have a Danish speaking GR. Fell free to ask any questions if there are something you guys are need to know about me or my work (or any question in general). --SimmeD (talk) 07:29, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
