Hello everybody. As an active SWMT member, I'd like to request global sysop rights, which can be very usefull to delete pages and potentialy ban vandals when patrolling small wikis.
I'm sysop and bureaucrat on frwiktionary, I've been sysop on frwikibooks and on lbwikionary and I have a sysop flagged bot. So I think I know how to deal with sysop tools ;). Nevertheless, I promise you I'll use my tools only if I'm pretty sure it's a case of vandalism.
Thanks by advance -- Quentinv57 19:18, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

- Note: Some people opposed your recent candidature for global rollback. I said there that rollback is definitely no big deal, adminship shouldn't neither but in fact adminship could easier be misused and can cause damage. What do you think changed since last month in your behaviour? Do you think that they would not oppose you now? Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 12:02, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
- To be honest, I don't think I really changed this last month, at least concerning RC patrolling. But I'm sure that the way I patrol today has nothing to do with the one I patrolled ten months ago. I understand the doubts expressed by guillom, but I really think that they're not up-to-date. Please have a look at my global activity since I've been elected as a global rollbacker and check my sysop operations to give me some feedback. Thanks -- Quentinv57 18:43, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

I am a wikimedian from India and my home wiki is Malayalam wikipedia. Recently I along with User:Junaidpv are doing lot of inter wiki activities in various Indian Language wikipedias. We both are interacting with various Indian language wiki communities. Most of the inactive wikis doesn't have active sysops. For some wikis non-sysop users are there. But since they are not sysops they are not able to edit commons.js or other restricted pages.
Both of us are helping all Indian language wikis to setup various Indic script typing tools. But since we don't have permission to edit those special pages we are helpless. So I request you to kindly grant global sysop rights to me. Junaid will file a separate request. We are specifically requesting the sysop rights in Indian language wikis (all projects, not only wikipedia). Complete list of Indian language wiki projects is available in this newsletter http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wikimedia_India_Community_Newsletter_2010_September.pdf --Shijualex 14:37, 12 October 2010 (UTC)
- Oppose. You have limited cross-wiki experience and almost no experience working in administrative areas of smaller wikis. The global sysop flag gives you access to the whole array of sysop tools, not just the ability to edit css and mediawiki namespace pages. If all you're interested in is editing restricted pages cross-wiki, I recommend enlisting the help of local sysops at the smaller wikis in question, or enlisting the help of a willing steward. -FASTILY (TALK) 03:04, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
Just reply for some of your comments.
You have limited cross-wiki experience
Let the other Indian language wikimedians comment on it. This PDF itself is the result of cross wiki interaction. That is a result of interacting with more than 8 Indian language wiki communities.
Recently there has been requests across many Indic language wikipedias to help implementing the typing tools in the respective wikis. The reason for this request is coming to us is because, Junaid is the person who developed the typimg solution for Malayalam and I was overseeing it. Other Indian language wikimedians noticed it and asked the help from us to implement it in their wiki. And we were able to help Hindi and Marathi wiki community to implement it in their wiki, since they have active admins there. But that is not the case with languages like Sanskrit, Oriya, Assamese, and so on. Currently there is no community itself for these wikis. Even though there is one or two users (who edit now and then) there is not active sysop in most of these language wikis. Apart from helping them with the typing tools we are trying to build the community itself. For that sysops rights will help.
almost no experience working in administrative areas of smaller wikis.
:) you haven't seen my contributions in malayalam wikipedia and Malayalam wikisource. Malayalam wikipedia or wikisource are not BIG wikis. --Shijualex 03:52, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
- With respect, you have taken my oppose out of context, but ironically, refuted neither of the statements you took out of context. After taking a second look, I've realized you have almost no cross-wiki experience in smaller wikis whatsoever - have a look: . For the record, the mediawiki wiki, wikimania wikis, meta, labs, and wikimedia wikis are all management wikis. Edits at the aforementioned wikis are typically not classified as cross-wiki experience in smaller wikis. As for "no experience working in administrative areas of smaller wikis", yes, that's right - I've implied that the Malayalam wikipedia and wikisource are small wikis. That being said, once again, you have failed to explain why you need the entire array of sysop tools (e.g. blocking, deleting, ect). Requesting help from local sysops at the smaller wikis or enlisting the help of a willing steward would be more than adequate in terms of what you wish to accomplish. -FASTILY (TALK) 04:42, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

In fact we do not want any of the above rights (I mean block, delete, and so on). For time being the only right required is editing few pages in the mediawiki namespace, like common.js, vector.js, and so on.
Then you may ask why you asked for Global sysop. The reason is, I haven't found another user group which will give the rights to edit only those pages across all Indian language wikis (not only wikipedias, we need to build community for wikisource wiktionary, and other sister wikis also). There is no way to get local admin ship now. The reason is there is no community in most of the wikis that I mentioned above. And we are trying to build it. One of the important step towards it is providing tools for typing respective language script. We are working on it. I know it is very difficult to understand it from latin-script perspective where we can directly input the text. --Shijualex 06:00, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
- If you only need to be able to edit the MediaWiki namespace, you can request a global editinterface flag in the section directly below this one. Jafeluv 07:33, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Jafeluv. I was not aware about this user group. I am withdrawing this request. I will apply for the editinterface usergroup. Thanks once again. --Shijualex

- You can get local adminship; post a note, wait a week, get it. Seb az86556 07:48, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
- Oppose Get local adminship, you don't need a global flag for what you want to do; more importantly, you will be explicitly forbidden to use the global flag for content edits and edits that are not anti-vandalism related. Writing and implementing tools is not a decision related to anti-vandalism and uncontroversial maintenance. Seb az86556 04:41, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
