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 (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.

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.

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

 |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 BRPeverEdit

The following request is closed.
Not ending before 15 July 2019 13:50 UTC

Hello everyone, I am BRPever. I am an SWMT patroller active in crosswiki anti-vandalism and anti-spam works. These tools will help me in dealing with vandalism and spam on small wikis. I can also read Devanagari and have basic knowledge of many languages written in it. Thank you!--BRP ever 13:50, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

  •   Strong support They are one of the most collaborative editors I have ever work with in this project, so I am very confident in their ability to communicate decisions with other users if their actions are doubted. They are quite active in IRC and we certainly needs more people that are active in IRC. In addition, their competency of the tool cannot be doubted as they have +sysop in Simplewiki / wikidata. In addition, solid crosswiki work seen by all the patrolling and crosswiki deletion requests. They know languages that can be an asset to GS team as few or none know those languages in the nom statement. Isn't this a candidate that the community can wholeheartedly endorse? I am quietly confident of it. --Cohaf (talk) 13:56, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Strongest Possible Support He has a strong track record of crosswiki contributions and has been instrumental in removing and preventing vandalism on small wikis. I have no doubt BRPever would use global sysop permissions responsibly to help cleanup vandalism on wikis with few/no local patrollers. Vermont (talk) 14:00, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Huangdan2060Edit

Hello, I'm Huangdan2060. I'm from China, Wikipedia has been blocked a few months ago, now I can only use VPN editing, but the IP address has been blocked because it is believed to be a web host provider or colocation provider. Thanks. --Huangdan2060 (talk) 08:37, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

Global rename for Martin UrbanecEdit

Not ending before 29 July 2019 00:41 UTC

Hello, I'm Martin Urbanec and I would like to serve Wikimedia movement as a global renamer. I'm mainly active on cswiki (where I serve as an admin, bureaucrat, checkuser and former arbitrator), but from time to time I also try to patrol globally as a member of SWMT. I also work on site configuration changes requests on Phabricator, see phab:p/Urbanecm. I think I understand the Global rename policy, and of course I'm willing to ask questions if I don't understand something. I plan to mostly help patrolling Czech request page, but of course I'd like to help with the global queue as well. Feel free to ask me questions, if you want to know anything. Thank you for considering granting me global renamer rights. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 00:41, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
