Requests for global rollback permissions

24 hour grant of GR to User:Revent and User:Stemoc and User:Russavia

Due to a processing of deletion requests at Commons, there has been (reflectively incorrect) widespread image link removal xwiki by CommonsDelinker bot. To help with a quick reversion process, I have granted User:Revent and User:Stemoc with GR for up to 24 hours to undertake the clean up of this situation. (request by IRC from Commons admin undertaking local undeletion process).

Adding Russavia.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:40, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Global rename for WJBscribe

Not ending before 2 September 2014 12:03 UTC

Hello. I'm Will. I've been a bureaucrat on enwiki since November 2007 and have performed 3220 renames according to en:Wikipedia:Adminstats. I'm willing to help out with global renames. I notice that there seems to be some controversy about how long these requests should stay open, so I'd like to note that I'm in no rush for the user right and would be happy for this discussion to last 2 weeks instead of 24 hours if the shorter period is controversial.

  • That action was based on previous renaming operation. In japanese wikipedia, policy decide to make a new account for new target account name protection before that requesting.
For example, when currently user name is "Example" and new user name is "NewUsername".
  1. We usually first renaming "NewUsername" to "Rename20211127184800" ,
  2. Then "Example" to "NewUsername",
  3. Finally "Rename20211127184800" to "Example".
Stewards does not do these. And I needed that action to confirmation for already requested my renaming in other wikis. When I want to renaming, I'll requesting that to other global renamers or stewards.--Rxy (talk) 17:05, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Global rename for 99of9

  • I've been a bureaucrat on Commons for 2.5 years, and have significant renaming experience. Commons is multilingual, so I can deal with that, but I still struggle with right-to-left languages, so will probably not get involved in renames of that type.

    Most likely not as he just wants to make his point and torpedo a consensus he didn't object to when it was appropriate. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 13:23, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    I'm pretty disgusted that now we have two stewards making POINTy edits here. These discussions occurred for literally months, and neither bothered to contribute in a meaningful way. Regardless, neither of these opposes are valid per the policy as they do not reflect upon the user, so they can safely be ignored. Ajraddatz (talk) 13:54, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    I raised my concerns about the time those elections will last weeks ago (see link above) and also said that on the steward mailinglist at some point. One day or three days doesn't make much difference. It is about a global right, not all are watching meta daily. I think it is unfair to the vast majority of the community to rush through global right requests within one day or three. There is no reason to rush this. There is no reason why those requests can't last for seven or maybe even 14 days. (Sorry for posting here, just don't have the time currently to read through half meta to find the right place to post. It is nothing personal against any candidate, just my very own opinion...) -Barras talk 22:08, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    So you haven't even noticed that the global renamer group is not a global one and that it is much less abusable than "renameuser" (you cannot break SUL) which all of the applying bureaucrats have already assigned to their account? Great! Vogone (talk) 22:13, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    And before this is misunderstood, I don't particularly care about how long these requests last. I'd be fine with Barras' proposal but find the way he tries to enforce it totally inappropriate. Vogone (talk) 22:22, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
I also don't particularly care how long the requests last for. My point is that the "formal" oppose will not achieve an extension beyond 3 days, which this particular application is already at. So this oppose achieved nothing, even if it is counted. --99of9 (talk) 23:48, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

    Moin Savh, I would like to follow Esprit Fugace in all points. Fist, me too is "herself"   Support and yes, I don't have a problem with a longer discussion time as long as everyone follows the same delay. And the other point is the loss of the local rename right. We have right know problems with the rename of users. Nearly 95% of our Users have a SUL-Account so we have to transfer them for rename. This is not so comfortable for our users. For the upcoming SUL-finalization we have to do both local and global renames. Regard--Itti (talk) 17:42, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    Sorry for that as well. Like I said to Esprit Fugace as well, you have my support as well and I appreciate your reply. Should you judge it necesarry, you can always participate in the discussion if you want. Thank you for volunteering, Savhñ 11:35, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

    "Herself" ^^ I'm merely following the rules : if consensus says "three days is better", or "a week is better", no problem, as long as everyone follows the same delay. I would merely note two points : first, usually this kind of thing, in my experience, gather the most attention in the first days, and second, with the upcoming loss of the local rename right on September 15th, I think a gradual transition with both rights would be better (to deal with the upcoming SUL finalization, for example, we have to do both local and global renames).

Ị have been a bureaucrat on fiwiki since April 2010 and performed 246 renames in total.

Global rename for Taketa

Not ending before 3 September 2014 06:16 UTC

Dear fellow Wikimedians,

with this request I would like to volunteer for the global rename permission. Since I am not a regular on meta let me give a short intro. I am a Dutch Wikipedian, bureaucrat since February 2010 with 109 renames/usurpations. I write articles, work on projects and add images. Other activities: Wikidata admin, OTRS member, Commons file renamer. Dutch Arbcom member in 2009/10 and 2012/13. Visited Wikimania in 2011/2012, instructed at introduction courses, coordinated introduction courses at Maastricht University Library, Eindhoven Wiknic 2014, and most recently a Dutch/German Museum cooperation.

I would like to focus on requests on the several Dutch language projects (nl), and the West-Frysian (fy) and Limburgian (li) Wikipedias. I can also help out in English speaking projects but prefer gaining some experience first. I have read the Global rename policy and the meta talkpages concerned with the userright. Let me know if there are any questions.

Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 06:16, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

  •   Oppose  Neutral - Hardly active as a crat at the Dutch Wikipedia. Didnot do a lot of renames. We should not grand this right to people who hardly used the local renamebuttons anyways. And yeah, there has been quite the backlogg from time to time with the rename requests at nl.wiki. Sorry Taketa, I do like you but for me this is a no. Natuur12 (talk) 13:59, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • No objection.DerHexer (Talk) 14:46, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  •   Oppose - I'd rather don't see an nlwiki crat as global renamer since I'm anything but happy about them. As you can see at the request page for renaming of an account on nlwiki, it take very long there to process such requests. Taketa says he will respond very fast when someone leaves a message for him (and that's true), but that isn't the right way. A crat (or in this case, a global renamer) should watch such pages and process a request as soon as possible, and not wait until someone wil notify a user (or global renamer) about a request. JurgenNL (talk) 16:26, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
    • I watch crat request pages. It is true that recently there was a crat backlog of 2-3 requests. With 6 people, 3 active, it happens. We all 3 have periods of being less active and when they combine, there is a backlog. As a global renamer I will be part of a large group, I do not take any renames away. I simply add renames. Nothing has been mentioned, about me being a global renamer, that would make it a negative thing. My edits are good quality, I am active, and I have the experience. I would like to give it a serious go. -- Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 17:18, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
    PS: Becoming a crat is not hard, 1 year as admin and we accepted 9 of the 10 last requests. If you see a backlog, you could apply and help.
  • You can ;). -- Taketa (talk) 18:09, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • I have other plans. But I understand your arguments so I changed my "vote" to neutral. Natuur12 (talk) 18:20, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Thank you for your consideration. -- Taketa (talk) 18:50, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • I changed my vote to neutral too. My opinion isn't changed, but I trust Taketa with these tools. Looking to the confidence, there is no reason to oppose. JurgenNL (talk) 17:55, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Global rename for Mskyrider

:Not ending before 2 September 2014 05:17 UTC

Not ending before 8 September 2014 05:17 UTC

I've been a bureaucrat @ Turkish Wikipedia since 2007 and have a significant experience in renaming users. Other than my native Turkish, I speak English and French fluently and have basic understanding of Turkic languages. I would like to apply for global renamer rights in order to be able to process primarily requests coming from my home wiki. Thanks. --Mskyrider (talk) 05:17, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Global rename for Deskana

Not ending before 4 September 2014 06:29 UTC

Greetings! I've been a bureaucrat on the English Wikipedia for quite a few years, and would like to help out as a global renamer. I'm not the most active bureaucrat anymore, but am very familiar with the SUL finalisation, both as a volunteer and also as the product manager leading the team at the Wikimedia Foundation that is working on it.

Conflict of interest declaration: I work for the Wikimedia Foundation as an Associate Product Manager. One of the products I am currently leading the development of is the SUL finalisation. My request for global rename rights, and any renames I perform if my request is accepted, are done strictly in my capacity as a volunteer. It is incredibly unlikely that I will be required to rename any users in my role as a staff member, but if that eventuality occurs, I will acquire the appropriate rights on my staff account (User:DGarry (WMF)) and perform the rename using that account to clearly delineate it as a staff action.

Clear consensus, recognized user. Pundit (talk) 10:53, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Late comment, for the record. People who ask Deskana for a rename risk having it classified as a "sock" (should they accidentally edit with the old name, even if they immediately revert themselves and admit that the edit is theirs, and even if the new name is just one letter different from the old name, thus making it impossible for there to be any deception, and no matter on how many wikis they had the same rename done, no matter how public the rename is, and no matter that the old redirects to their new main account). [7] [8] It doesn't matter if you point this out to him: he will ignore your emails, misrepresent them, and lie about them. You may eventually get him to kind of apologize, but only after someone "higher up" asks him to re-read said emails, and stop lying. He will still pretend not to have actually read the emails (or to have misunderstood them), even if you had emailed him after the alleged "misunderstanding" and politely asked him to retract his lies. All in all, a very incompetent hat collector, who is now getting paid by the WMF, and is thus the strongest argument I know of not to donate to the Foundation. (I should have opposed his self-nomination earlier, but only noticed it today.) ~ DanielTom (talk) 11:40, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

One more thing. Deskana is also extremely rude and unhelpful. If you question any of his incompetent actions, he will simply revert you. If someone else is concerned that your real name is being defamed for no reason, and tries to (however imperfectly) articulate this concern, Deskana replies by pitilessly mocking you: "I believe in unicorns but unfortunately for Daniel my beliefs are no more true than his." This is not the kind of person we want as a global renamer. ~ DanielTom (talk) 12:08, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

"وحید" and "وحيد" look exactly the same but they are different (just remove د character to see the differences) and I think a bureaucrat who knows these languages (Arabic and Persian scripts) is vital for global rename team.
