Requests for global rollback permissions

Global rollback for Dede2008

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.
  • Oppose, no crosswiki countervandalism experience. Ajraddatz (Talk) 02:29, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
  •   Oppose - while I do see some cross-wiki edits, this is not enough for global rollback. The candidate should consider joining the SWMT.--Jasper Deng (talk) 03:16, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
  • &  I don't see any crosswiki countervandalism activity. Not a single undo that I could find on luxo. I suggest that the user take a look at User:Snowolf/How to globally TWINKLE instead. Snowolf How can I help? 03:47, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
  •   Oppose --Katarighe (Talk) 14:33, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Only has edits on about 14 wikis at the moment.  Hazard-SJ  ✈  01:41, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

  Not done per the snowball clause. I would advise Dede2008 to follow the comments above, and to get involved in cross-wiki fight against vandalism. Plus the global rollback is clearly not necessary to patrol on wikis. You can contact me at my user talk page if you need some help with cross-wiki issues. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 06:54, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

Global rollback for Orashmatash

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Hi everyone. I'd like to request the GR flag. I've been active in cross-wiki counter-vandalism for a few months now as a member of the SWMT using undo and Twinkle. I think global rollback would help me revert vandalism quicker as Twinkle is really quite slow and undo slower still. I'm a sysop on the Simple English Wikipedia and a rollbacker on the Simple English Wiktionary and have never had warnings/complaints etc. about misuse of the tool on either project. Thank you for your consideration. -Orashmatash (talk) 21:25, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Global rollback for DARIO SEVERI

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Hi everyone. I'd like to request the GR flag. I've been active in cross-wiki counter-vandalism in the Wikipedia, with 300 page reversed or canceled in (pt), 29 in the (es), 8 (it) and 5 in (en), and I think global rollback would help me revert vandalism quicker. For time being kindly grant me the rights for 3 months. Thank you for your consideration. DARIO SEVERI (talk) 07:09, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

  • &  while I appreciate the user's enthusiasm and efforts, and GR is no big deal, I don't see enough crosswiki experience. What I mean is, global rollback acts on all wikis. To this day, none of the wikis have entrusted him with the rollback rights, and the user's reverting activity on his main wiki dates from late april. I am unsure this is enough experience for granting a global flag that applies on all projects, when the user has so far been only active in a limited set of projects where he speaks the language. I also would like to note that the flag is not customarily granted for temporary periods. As I've advised other users, I'd suggest that a userscript such as TWINKLE be used, should this request be declined. See User:Snowolf/How to globally TWINKLE if intersted. Snowolf How can I help? 07:57, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  •   Oppose I expect log(wikis you have edited)>=2; I ask you to follow Snowolf's advice and if possible join SWMT.--Jasper Deng (talk) 15:54, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  •   Oppose per the above - great you are interested and thanks for what you do but it is far too early for GR. --Herby talk thyme 15:59, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  •   Oppose It's too early now for global rollback. User should get some experience before requesting again, which can be done by joining SWMT for example. --Wiki13 talk 16:15, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

  Not done per snowball clause. Please follow the comments above, notably Snowolf who summarised it better than I would do. Your efforts are appreciated, but it's too early at this stage. If you continue your global work, it should be okay in some months. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 16:51, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Global rollback for Simeondahl

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

I applicants for "Roll Back" because it is a very useful tool to have when I come in a variety of Wikipedias. Now i have rollback on Simple.wikipedia and en.wikipedia, but it will be nice to have global rollback permissions becuse i need to remove vandalism, wihtout haveing a lot if eidts on the wiki. I know all rules about it, good-faiht, and so on. (ps. i am on en, da, simple, and a lot more now) --Simeondahl (talk) 19:44, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

  •   Oppose - consider using User:Snowolf/How to globally TWINKLE instead; you need far more counter-vandalism than several wikis (I'm talking about a hundred several tens of different wikis are more). Thanks for trying to help, though - consider joining SWMT.--Jasper Deng (talk) 19:48, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
    I don't agree with a hundred wikis being needed, and that is clearly not the customary requirement. Snowolf How can I help? 19:50, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Sorry, but Global Rollback is for a specific scope, and we expect a certain level of cross-wiki activity before granting or supporting. You are welcome to join the SWMT and help in the cross-wiki anti-vandalism issues without the tool. Please consider withdrawing this request. --Savhñ 19:49, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose, sorrym but GR is for those who already have global experience. Courcelles 00:40, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
  • &  the user has some crosswiki experience reverting edits on en, simple, da and nl, which would be enough for a weak support from me, but the only language the user doesn't speak at all is nl, I believe, and only a few reverts were made there, not enough for fully judging the user's engagement in different languages that he doesnt understand, and his interactions with small wiki communities. The user suggests that he's planning to use the tool in a variety of Wikipedia,s which I take to mean a much wider set than the one he's reverting on currently. I would suggest that he should consider hanging out in #cvn-sw or in any case use TWINKLE in the manner linked by Jasper above before applying again for GR, and that more substantial and wider experience would be best. Snowolf How can I help? 05:56, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Per above, not now. –BruTe talk 06:20, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

  Not done per snowball clause. Global rollback is for people patrolling cross-wiki, and not just on a couple of them. Let me advise you to join the SWMT and to help other cross-wiki patrollers, and this shouldn't be a problem in some months. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:20, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Global rollback for Jasper Deng

Global Twinkle has worked well for me. However, it's not as fast as rollback and sometimes I get stuck with a CAPTCHA that prevents me from reverting using Twinkle. I've been in the SWMT for about 4 weeks now.--Jasper Deng (talk) 19:17, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

  • I appreciate your effort, but I do not see as much activity as I would expect. A quick look at your sul does show many edits, but also that most of them are quite recent or to your userpage. Except for wikis where you already have the rollback permission, you only have more than 10 edits on 6 wikis, including meta, enwikiversity and commons. I would have no issue in supporting in some time, but not yet. Savhñ 19:35, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
  •   Weak oppose, per Savh. You're sure trusted, but it's imho too soon for GR right now. Keep up the good work and request it over a few weeks. Trijnsteltalk 22:15, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
  •   Weak oppose, for now. Although I see you a lot on IRC, I have to agree with the above and would suggest you to come back after some weeks of intensive SWMT work. - Hoo man (talk) 23:17, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Global rollback for Dan653

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.
  •   Oppose for now. Once you've gotten a good amount of experience in the SWMT you can request this again. Meanwhile I suggest you use User:Snowolf/How to globally TWINKLE.--Jasper Deng (talk) 22:29, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
  •   Oppose as well. Edits to about seven projects (excluding the Test Wikipedia) is surely inadequate.  Hazard-SJ  ✈  22:38, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
  •   Oppose due to lack of cross-wiki experience. Thanks for volunteering, Tiptoety talk 22:50, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Hey - in the same way that enwiki admins look for previous counter-vandalism experience before assigning rollback locally, we also look for experience before assigning anyone the global flag. These rights apply to every Wikimedia wiki, and because of that we like to make sure that candidates have enough experience reverting in other languages that they don't speak before we assign this flag. This experience allows us to see how well you revert past language barriers, and ultimately if you will be able to use the rights well. Please consider the advice above, help out with the SWMT (we really need the help!), and come back here after a while of reverting across multiple projects. Thanks, Ajraddatz (Talk) 04:16, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Thanks for your kind advice, will continue to work on the SWMT. Dan653 (talk) 23:30, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Global rollback for Vogone

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Hello! I would like to request the Global Rollback Permission because it is much easier to revert vandalism on other wikis than my homewiki. I'd like to work in the Small Wiki Monitoring Team and I have some experiences with the rollback right on dewiki and simplewiki. Thank you! --Vogone (talk) 15:12, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Usually the process is to undertake the patrol and reversion, and once you have shown your skills and sense then a request would be made. — billinghurst sDrewth 15:20, 30 June 2012 (UTC)
  • For the time being, I think you have not got enough experience in the GR scope. Looking at your sulinfo, there are a few wikis with edits, but looking at all your contributions outside of your home project, I only see two reverts: [1] & [2]. This is far too little for a GR, as per "users must be demonstrably active in cross-wiki countervandalism or anti-spam activities". I am also worried by the fact that you have the rollback flag on simplewiki, but you have never used it. I'd recommend you to be active in the SWMT, and for the time being, use the undo.

Requests for global sysop permissions

Global sysop for Frigotoni

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Frigotoni has been one of the most active global rollbackers, and I feel that global sysop would suite him well.--Jasper Deng (talk) 16:27, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Sorry for the delay but Wikimedia services didn't work. Yes, Jasper Deng advised me for this decision. Well, I'd like to apply for GS for expecially two reasons (Toto has been nominated too I think). I'm usually on IRC so I'm used to tagging any vandalism/spam page candidated for deletion. I often find pages on wikis where there are no sysops active, so I'm used to bothering current GSs as well (otherwise pages wouldn't delete). These tools therefore could semplify me the job. I'm a crosswiki patroller since September 2011, so I think I've gained some experience. I'm also quite familiar with the tools being a sysop on my (current) Home Wiki, and on mediawiki. There's absolutely no problem, if you think I'm not ready. In any case I'd use GS tools wisely (as I did with GR, using "undo" button whenever I wasn't too sure). Questions are welcomed.--Frigotoni ...i'm here; 17:14, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
  •   Comment 1) Afaik we don't nominate others for global rights (did he accept it, btw?) and 2) I'm not convinced if Frigotoni has enough experience. Trijnsteltalk 16:32, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
    • He said yes on IRC, though that probably is inadequate.--Jasper Deng (talk) 16:36, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
  •   Comment As Trijnstel, I'm not sure Frigotoni has enough experience… He failed to get GR twice (2011-10 and 2011-12), and finally got it the third time (2012-03), so about 3 months ago. To my mind, 3 months is a bit short… Toto Azéro follow the guide ! 16:41, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Question. For how long do you need this permission? Ruslik (talk) 04:40, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Questions: What are your previous experiences with Javascript and CSS, how long do you want to keep the flag and what and where do you plan to do as a part of the mentioned maintenance (especially, how do you plan to find broken code, you weren't recently active on many non cs-projects, so I doubt you'll find it right away)? If you can answer these questions in a satisfying way, you got my   Support, as we always need volunteers who know what they're doing ;) - Hoo man (talk) 22:53, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
    • You don't have to be active on the project to see that there are issues with css/js there, that's not in correlation. And maintenance is not only about finding *broken* code, but also about its tweaking and rewriting to be more effective. We have a plan to walk through all wikis one by one and do the checks (and fixes) according to the (quite long) checklist. Which basically answers the question for how long - until it's done. New ResourceLoader and shared gadgets will require another maintenance too. It's a huge pile of work and any helping hand is welcome.

      • tweaking and rewriting probably requires participation of local communities. How are you going to interact with them? Ruslik (talk) 19:23, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
        • No, it does not. As long as all the features and behavior stay the same, which is how the maintenance should go. We do not plan to change any behavior.

          • It is not my understanding of Interface editors. Still, if, for instance, a local sysop asks you to stop "rewriting", what will you do? Ruslik (talk) 19:34, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
            • "However, interface editors must not make any controversial edits to the interface on projects where they are not in a local user group that grants this user right." The only way how to make controversial edits is to rewrite things the way they no longer do what they used to and as I said above, this won't happen. Anyway, if they'll ask, I'll obviously stop, but that does not mean that some staff member won't do the same after, which creates a nice paradox, but whatever...

              • Ok. Another problem is that we do not grant this permission indefinitely, only for a limited period up to a year. Ruslik (talk) 18:42, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
                • Why it should be problem? Let's not make this process more bureaucratic than necessary... If we'll finish the maintenance before one year, I may (depending on the remaining time) request removal, if we won't finish, I will require prolonging...

Global editinterface for Hoo man

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

As it's almost a year now, since I've been granted the global editinterface rights (discussion), they are going to expire in a few days. During this year I used the permissions a lot to fix individual scripts and gadgets, on smaller wikis, or per request on bigger ones. Probably the most notable thing I did this year were the conversions from http to protocol relative URIs in interface messages (Stewards'_noticeboard/Archives/2012-04#Fixing_HTTPS_on_Wikimedia_wikis). As there still is a lot of work to do (and likely always will, as software changes), I would like to extend my rights for one more year. Thanks, Hoo man (talk) 14:47, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Support and nominally support ongoing right, though the community should want some review and remove ability to the right, eg. maintained as long as admin right maintained, and used during a 12 month period.
    To me it looks as there is no review on this right, and that is probably a shortcoming. — billinghurst sDrewth 13:08, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Requests for global IP block exemption

Global IP block exempt for TruPepitoM

Everytime somebody blocks, I am always affected by the IP address., thanks, --TruPepitoM (talk) 04:46, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

The user is a productive enwiki contributor and is on the same range as a proxy we keep blocking, granting global IPBE. Snowolf How can I help? 07:19, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Maxtremus

The explanation said something about open proxy, I don't know why it was banned, thanks, --Maxtremus (talk) 15:49, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

What was the exact message? Ruslik (talk) 17:00, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
The IP address that you are currently using has been blocked because it is believed to be an open proxy. To prevent abuse, these proxies may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. If you believe you are not running an open proxy, the most likely cause is that another customer from your ISP who was previously assigned this IP address was running an open proxy. If this is the case, please request to be unblocked using the {{unblock}} template, or request administrator attention using {{admin!}} and indicate you are caught by an open proxy block. More rarely, your network equipment or that of your service provider may be misconfigured or compromised by malicious software (such as a virus). In some cases, this can be remedied by logging into the secure server. For more information, see the Wikiproject on Open Proxies and Wikipedia:Open proxies. Maxtremus (talk) 00:52, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
Even better than adding an exemption, I have removed the IP block as I cannot find any reason for the claim of open proxy, no local evidence that is has been abused. — billinghurst sDrewth 01:22, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
