Steward requests/Global permissions

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.
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.

Global sysop for StanglavineEdit

Not ending before 13 June 2020 18:12 UTC

I was once a global sysop for a while but resigned due to lack of availability. Now, I return and request the tools again because they are very useful in my work here. The reasons can be found in my first request. Open to questions and thank you for your attention. Rafael (stanglavine) msg 18:12, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

Global rename for 蟲蟲飛Edit

I am an active administrator on the zhwiki. Acording to zhwiki Username policy, Misleading usernames, Disruptive or offensive usernames and Promotional names will be blocked, but they may change their usernames, then administrator can unblock the user. However there are no active users have global rename flag on the zhwiki, and some new users don’t know how to come here to request for rename. I would like to request global rename flag, so that I can help more. I also want to help more on meta.wiki--May♡♡→♡℃Talk 03:32, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

So what I hope is that these users can be more active (one of the last time we have a GR who got their rights removed for inactivity and then asked for it back, okay they are yet quite inactive). This is not a commentary based on anyone, but the belief that anyone asking for rights should be expected to use those rights (rights are not hats etc).

Global rename for HamishEdit

Not ending before 16 June 2020 07:23 UTC

I'm very sorry to parallel this request, which is somewhat nonsense and inappropriate at this time, with another request from my wonderful colleague here. And I know it's only around 2 weeks since my GRo. But, honestly, I should have posted my application days ago, but I saw active Sotiale on our rename request page, hence the postponement. However, I think I need stand out and request to help local rename request, as well as for cross-wiki. I have comprehended the policys above and I consider I can handle the permission. Regards, Hamish 07:23, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

  • Support. Can be trusted with the tool, sysop elsewhere. No concerns. —Sgd. Hasley 11:22, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support, it's fine... But u just get gr in three weeks. --Wright Streetdeck 12:52, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support Seeing what I mentioned recently, it makes me feel like a celebrity? :P I've been processing requests on zhwiki with my poor Chinese skills, but sometimes when I receive a request from a blocked user, I thought it would be better if someone familiar with local policy would handle. I have received Hamish's rename request and processed the request several times, and I think Hamish will be able to perform the rename requests smoothly for zh community. --Sotiale (talk) 13:50, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for たいらのあつもりEdit

I use a VPN to access the Internet to protect my privacy from HKP. So I need GIPBE to edit Wikipedia, thanks. --Taira no Atsumori (Talk) 07:42, 4 June 2020 (UTC)

たいらのあつもり, what is HKP? Hong Kong police? --Base (talk) 14:52, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
